Byron Nelson held the all-time season scoring average for 55 years until Tiger broke it in 2000. 

 Where's Hank Kuehne or Victor Schwamkrug?  Did Scott Hend dominate the tour?  Is John Daly dominating?  I think there is way too much talk about the power game.  So what if they are hitting shorter irons into greens?  They are not scoring any better than Lord Byron did in 1945 with persimmon woods and all steel shafts.  Even though Tiger has just won two tournament in a row, can anyone honestly say they think he is hitting the ball well?  His short game has been incredible.

As for Vijay and Phil going to 47" shafts, that is just plain stupid.  Week after week, the hot putter wins on Tour.  David Toms, Jim Furyk, Jay Haas, Fred Funk, Chad Campbell and the Scott Verplank's of the world sure are making a lot of money year after year with their dink and dunk golf games.

Of course I was kidding.

For us poor old guys, the short game is everything.  I played 12 holes after work today and shot 3 over with a double bogey and no birdies.  I other words, I parred ten holes and had two "bad" holes.  Here's the kicker:  My bogey was a THREE PUTT. 

I only hit 6 greens so I got up and down 5 of 6 times. This is the way I usually play.  If I couldn't chip, pitch, and putt, I would be a 90's golfer yet I routinely shoot in the 70's.

Back to that old ball discussion, have the pros play a larger ball with less dimples and the distances of the tees are reduced at once.

Kirk Triplett won in Tucson because he made every putt and shot 63 on Sunday.  Bubba Watson had no bogeys for the week, bombed it, but shot 70 on Sunday as he didn't make any putts. 

Chicks may dig the longball, but shortball wins golf tournaments IMHO.

Let's face it.  Chicks dig the money.  Did you see the smile on Geoff Ogilvie's wife's face at the thought of $1.3 million?

Yeah LOL

She got an opportunity to tell how great a player the world up to now have missed....

But he played great though,  really solid.  Love III never seem to play as great as he seem to be.  Sorry for him

 

But.  I believe in being really good in the long game.  Short game is important, but should never be an excuse for crappy long game.

Short game and what's going on between the ears--that's what separates the very, very best from the rest on the PGA tour.  It's that simple.
