Warning: this is meant to be a fun topic in which you admit you aren’t Brandel Chamblee… maybe one more geared to the guy who plays a “Taylormade M1 3wood” and not so much to the guy who plays the “2018 TM M1 3HL w/ Hzrdus Red 6.0 75 + 2* w/ slight Fade Bias off the tee but draws from the deck” 3wood guy.
Anywho - I’ve was a casual golf fan most my life and then got really into it about 3-4 years ago. Started playing/practicing a lot and now watch the sh*t out of the golf channel and follow the tour closely. Yes, I can now spot an over-the-top swing, understand what a double cross is and can see that DJ has a bowed wrist at the top… but…
But… I’ll admit, there are still times when I hear various golf analyst say something that - while I accept it’s true - I have to admit I wouldn’t have spotted it on my own or don’t 100% understand it to the point where I could say it later and keep a straight face.
So - question is: what technical aspect of the game is still a little above your paygrade?
- "this is a “ballstrikers course”. What? Aren’t they all? When are you guys ever going to say “now this is a course where the subpar ballstrikers can thrive”?
- “oh, as you can see there, he releases the putter head beautifully”. Dont really see it.
- As much as I play golf… I don’t think about, or analyze, the grain all that often. The commentators mention it on every putting surface.
- While I can clearly see when that Jordan puts left hand low, or Phil uses the claw grip… I don’t exactly know how these grips work.
- “one piece takeaway” - great little nerdy golf term.
- “as you can see there, the club is across the line at the top of the swing”
- Of course, I am still working on my ability to ID various grands strands.
