Stick A Fork In Tiger Woods – 2nd Back Surgery In Weeks

tiger_woods_injures_back_at_the_barclays_2013_-_pga_tourKinda makes sense now that Tiger Woods was lobbying for a non-playing role in the next Ryder Cup, doesn’t it?

195 MPH Ball Speed?!? OH My GEEK…

Jerry “BT” Crowell Misses Champions Toshiba Pre-Qual By 2

jcrowellAs I’ve been saying, swing changes take time to implement properly if you’re not just going to perform a series of moves that make no sense to you (usual swing changes) and usually fall apart when you get under pressure.

Jerry “BT” Crowell’s journey from modern golf in search of a mechanically-correct swing has been documented here, and while he has been disappointed by how he was playing in the past year’s events, I kept telling him that it was coming.

miler top I have not watched the WLDC for some time, due to my dissatisfaction with a few things about it.
