FITSPATRICK VS DECHAMBEAU ON GOLF SKILLS

The latest argument in the golf world is about the ‘bomb and gouge’ players vs the traditionalist. Compare the stories from both sides of the pond about golf and some of the biggest names.

European Tour player Matthew Fitzpatrick’s comments on Bryson DeChambeau set off the first round. We have seen an upward trend of greater distance and statistically better play and these two are at the forefront right now. As you remember when Tiger Woods hit the golf stage there was a major change in the. Similar changes have been seen prior to that with great names in the game appearing include, but not limited to the likes of Palmer, Nickols, Jones & Hagen. There are many changes and variables which have occurred and depending on which learning you have will put you on the variable sides of the fence.

Distance has always been a good thing. Being able to use a wedge instead of a mid oer long iron has always been preferable. Link that with a good short game and the golfer surpasses everyone. The players ability to understand his game and what makes it the greatest set each player apart. For now the distance increase by DeChambeau is pushing him toward the front of the pack. Increasing the various points of his game will make him better.

My coaches and teachers have always told me that there are a number of adages which over the long run will prevail. From the ranks of the Professional golfers of the world the “Drive for Show and Putt for Dough” is the most prolific. The golf gods have a way of working around every aspect of the game and teach each of us our place in the game.

Keep you stats, practice your game and have fun will make this game better for all.

CHANGE TO CART & CHARGER

If all have not yet heard, there is a number of cart manufacturers that are increasing the efficiency of their battery and charger systems wit the newer carts issued during 2018. The serial number matching and alpha phase charging coming now from Club Cart is the most prominent. This great chargers for this carts will no longer be capable of charging your buddy’s cart. You will also need to be aware of this condition should the cart require service or the charger fails. Replacements may not necessary be available for your local mechanics and the repair shop may need you charger as well as your charge.

This is only any advisory for persons acquiring newer carts during 2018 and beyond. It may save you some aggrevations later.

MOST WANTED MALLET PUTTERS

Back again and I am relying on my friends at MySpyGolf to provide the best information available for the benefit of my readers. As one can see in the article attached mallet putter have changed and updated their style and designs. We all understand that this is an annual process in order for each manufacturer to get his product onto the market.

Ever since I was introduced to Evnroll Putters at the PGA show I have been a real fan. Looking forward to revisit in 2022 and adding Axis1 to my must see list. (FYI: Odessey has always been there).  I have helped a number of the members at my former club make decisions on a new putter and this type of information has been a great help. Both articles have very good information for those considering a change in the process and equipment. The most significant change in the lists are the increased in costs of putters over time.

Check out the link below to get the latest information and I am leaving the older version online for comparison.

In 2018 it appears that again the Evnroll has topped the list again, however, a new character has entered the fight. In 2021 Odessey is back at the top of the putter lines. 2018 Tommy Armour had a new model (#3 Align) that has great test results. If you scroll the website you will see that I have added a special single product review for Axis1 putters which I am swapping back and forth with my Evenroll as the best putter on hand.

ALTERNATE TO LASER

Thanks USGA. We find that there appears to be a change in the use of measuring devices on the golf course during play. A summary of the full story is included in the related article below written by my friends at MyGolfSpy:

Arccos and the USGA

If you have ever used GPS system instead of a Laser unit, this ARCCOS system appears to be the answer we have been looking to discover. I have been using a hard copy distance layout created on my computer awaiting this decision from the USGA. We have all been statically keeping our shot information round by round and trying to keep it in our brains. Some have been transcribing and moving to spread sheets. With this decision there may be an elimination of the yardage book so meticulously maintained by tour caddies and players.

Personally, I consider this a good investment for those seeking help on the course. It will be interesting to see if each of the other system will step up and get approval from the USGA on their systems.

Thanks to the guys at GolfWRX, here is another great article for golfers searching for their potential.

Unlocking Your Golf Potential

This is one of the better articles on the mysteries of the mind and how it functions. Especially for those of use who are still striving (i.e. 65-years later) for the ultimate in performance on the course. I recently experienced the great advise contained here by shooting a poor front nine of 48 and followed with a back nine of 36 (including a triple-bogey).

Follow the advise and you will find that golf is a much better game.
