I'm trying so hard to stop that downswing starting with the shoulders, I've gone from an 8hcp to 12 in 2 years because of it. This vid is a great description thanks for sharing
If you get a chance, go watch the sybervision Al geiberger series. 1 hr total. took me from a 14 to a 9 in no time flat. Grainy as hell but total right brain immersion experience.

@funkycoldmedina Edit: Found it on youtube and is in the spoiler. My old VCR version was quite a bit clearer than this. Hopefully, someone will restore it and put the upgraded version on youtube. And lest ye skeptical, a friend of mine who was a scratch and had gone up to a 2 watched it and realized what changed in his swing.

Lucky enough to play West Sussex GC yesterday for the first time. Cost me £75

What a fantastic golf course!!

Rated No 12 in England - it’s a mix of heather/heathland & parkland

Some stunning holes with the signature hole being the 6th a 222 yard par 3 - stroke index 8

A carry of 181 over water with heather left of the green and OB over the green. Plenty of room to bail out right but leaves a really tricky chip n putt for your par
I shot an 82 which I was pretty happy with as it was a tough, breezy day

Greens looked great but were slow and wooly. If they were better it would walk into the top 10 imo

Had my 1st golf trip a couple weeks back, 25 of us went to St Pierre (Chepstow). The beer was good, as was the company, but the course took my soul. Think I hit every tree in South Wales! Beautiful place though, stunning scenery; will be going back next year for sure.

Mmmmmm - sounds like you need a tree guide instead of a course guide!!

Played a Course (tree lined) for the first time years ago. Bought a Course guide as it looked tricky. Proceeded to tell me it was 214 from the Silver Birch/109 from the Ash/137 from the Lime/196 from the Beech. Needed a fucking book on trees!

Try a different club in your bag instead of constantly using your tree wood :cautious:

The absolute state of american police. Jumped up, power tripping jobsworths.


Not disagreeing with your premise - but in this case, I would guess Scheffler is more wrong than the police officer.

This was a situation where Scheffler should have kept calm, and had more patience - even if he did not know about the pedestrian death. He did not follow directions, it probably was reckless driving, and the "assault" was probably with the car.

From the ESPN journalist who witnessed it, Scheffler assumed it was a security blockade he had the right to go around in a PGA marked car. He stopped as soon as he realised what happened, was calm and didn't resist and they slap 4 charges on him!

The whole point of being a good law enforcement officer is reading and understanding a situation and trying to diffuse problems rather than create mythical charges out of nowhere to make a point. If this same circumstance happened in London for example you can bet even the useless Met Police would be rational, calm and not arrest him on 4 charges over a misunderstanding. American policing is utterly broken.

Bored of golf and now fancies F1; Scheffler has already overtaken more cars than Verstappen this year ;)

Comes across as a bit of a hot head on the course so this type of behaviour from Scottie doesn’t surprise me

Had it been Tyrell it would have been extremely surprising and out of character

Sounds like the cops have got a great handle on things over the pond!

"Second-round play was delayed after a pedestrian was hit and killed by a bus outside the golf course. Scheffler was not involved in the accident, per ESPN." Valhalla indeed.

Wild morning at the PGA. Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if Scottie went ahead and won this weekend though
