Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate Ties for Lead at U.S. Open!

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

Wow, what a great finish by Tiger to hole an 8 footer to tie with Rocco Mediate and force an 18-hole playoff.

I didn’t know Rocco would finish up at the top but he sure did and I must say it’s more luck than his skills.

Tomorrow will be another exciting match to watch as Tiger beats Rocco. I wouldn’t even give Rocco a second chance for a one-on-one dual with Tiger.

On the side note, I hit the ball great today, here’s today’s swing keys:

1. Setup to the target parallel. I can’t believe how many times I start aligning myself to the right of target and get into lots of unnecessary swing flaws. Setup is probably the first thing before even trying to mess with your swing.

2. Feel the cocking of wrists after takeaway.

3. Really feel the lower body and upper body working together on the downswing, holding the lag and extending all the way after impact.

4. Feel like doing a 2-handed basketball pass while holding the lag. It almost feels like you are flinging your wrists about 50 yards right of the target.

Tiger Shoots 30 on the Back Nine and tied for Second at U.S. Open

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Well, I spent the whole day watching Tiger and Phil battle it out. Tiger did well on the back nine by shooting a nice 30.

What’s my predictions for tomorrow?

Well, I think it will be about the same with Tiger and Stuart staying on the leaderboard while everyone else drops off the top.

I think time has proven over and over that you need game to stay on top, not just for the first 2 days.

Expect players like David Love III to climb more on top and players like Rocco Mediate fall to mediocracy. (No pun intended Rocco, but you ain’t got the stuff to go all four days.)

Tiger at One Over at the U.S. Open and I found my Swing!

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Well, I spent 3 hours watching Tiger today on TV.  Although he doesn’t seem 100% yet due to his knee surgery, he did okay today by shooting 1-over.  Phil Mickelson shot an even par while playing with Tiger.

My Prediction This Week?

Tiger won’t win the U.S. Open because he just got back from his knee surgery.  Man, talk about getting back too soon I think…

Phil?  Nah, Phil’s not gonna win it either.

I think it’s either going to be someone who’s unknown or Stuart Appleby might win it at this point.

Oh yeah, btw, I found my swing today.  I am swinging like Tiger and Ben Hogan!

Today swing keys:

1. Really feel the triangle on the backswing.  Make sure to rotate in-plane.

2. On the downswing, really feel like the both left and right arm form a triangle and hit the ball with the same force, sorta like basketball 2-handed pass.  I did this and hit the ball like super straight and hit it a mile too.

3. Same thing with short pitch shots.  Really feel the plane, rotate, then just swing through with arms extended.

Golf Book Review – Tiger Woods – How I Play Golf

Tiger Woods - How I Play Golf

I remember when How I Play Golf came out to the bookstores. I immediately bought one and I think it’s a very good book Tiger has put together.This is a must to get. If you don’t have one yet, GET IT NOW!  Tiger will teach you everything from trick shots to health fitness.  Although I DO NOT recommend you to copy his swing mechanics unless you are under 18, there’s so much short game and putting in this book that can help your golf game.

There’s no denying that Tiger Woods has taken golf by storm. It seems like every time this 25-year-old swings a club, another PGA record is shattered. While his explosive drives, accurate approach shots, and steady putter certainly contribute to this success, both fans and critics agree that it’s Tiger’s devastating mental game that has propelled him to become the premier golfer of our time. Now Tiger shares his thoughts on what he calls the game of a lifetime. He reveals the five secrets he believes are responsible for his success-a combination of physical, metaphysical, and psychological practices he uses daily to keep his game in top shape and help him to transcend all the ups and downs of golf. Best of all, Tiger reveals his unique approach to the game for the first time ever in this one singular volume.

HOWTO Practice with 1 golf ball

Here’s HOWTO practice with 1 golf ball.

Really, you will need to get a 60 degree lob wedge, put weight on your heels, hit about 1/8 inch behind the ball, then you will need to really keep steady and make a nice smooth shot with super light hands and also keep your finish short so you can get your right hand out to catch the ball.
