An Attempt to Hit the White Ball Straight

Why Do I Top the Golf Ball When It Is Wet or Soggy?

If you live in the southeast you have had to endure one of the wettest winters in recent history in 2020 and 2021. This is two winters in a row in which golf courses and country clubs have had to deal with an abnormal amount of rain. It seems any time the sun is out for a day or two, it is followed by a weekend of rain. Even on beautiful 70 degree days, the fairways are completely drenched or at least soggy. Amateurs all over North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida and Georgia are trying to figure out why the top it when the conditions are wet.

Body Moving Faster Than the Arms on the Golf Swing

Time and again we hear Nick Faldo saying the body is moving faster than the arms when PGA Tour pros get under pressure. Late in the day on Sunday Faldo often talks about the swing sequence being out of rhythm. Unfortunately, this is giving amateurs the wrong idea. There is no an amateur in the United States that has the problem of their body moving faster than their arms. This is why.

Nick Faldo SQAIRZ Golf Shoes – Do They Really Add Distance?

SQAIRZ Golf Shoes are known as the “distance golf shoes”. Let me repeat that. SQAIRZ Golf Shoes are known as the “distance golf shoes”. Shoes are now giving amateur golfers distance. Hold on while I stop rolling my eyes. If you have watched the Golf Channel during PGA Tour events in 2020 and 2021 you have likely seen Nick Faldo endorsing these distance golf shoes. So, can a pair of golf shoes actually give amateurs distance?

If you understand what Gankas teaches, you will know what Bhatia squats in an attempt to gain more power. So, here is his swing:

Viktor Hovland vs Matthew Wolff vs Collin Morikawa

I have made it known that I think Viktor Hovland will have the best professional career of the three golfers that came on tour in 2019. On this page I will keep a document of the history of the Official World Golf Rankings and professional wins for each golfer. You can decide who is having the better golf career.

Link to PDF of Official World Golf Rankings History.

I analysis all three of their golf swings here:

Many could argue that Viktor Hovland had the chance to get his career started before both Wolff and Morikawa as he played early in the 2019 season at the Farmers Insurance Open and the Masters. Wolff made his debut at the Waste Management Open with George Gankas on the bag but didn’t play again until the 25th tournament of the season (The Travelers). He got a win in his 4th start on tour with a bomb eagle putt on the 18th hole at the 3M Open. In that same 3M Open fellow rookie Collin Morikawa placed 2nd in his 4th career professional start. Morikawa went on to win three weeks later at the Barracuda Championship. Morikawa got a win in his 6th start on tour.

Hovland didn’t get a win until his 22nd tour start and at a limited field event at the Puerto Open. Morikawa’s strong performance just prior to Covid-19 and his sensational play just out of Covid-19 rocketed him into the top 10 in the world. Morikawa is the only one of the three players to have a major championship with the 2020 PGA Championship. All have performed very well in majors.

Stats so far

Hovland:

  • 43 professional tournaments
  • 5 missed cuts
  • 20 consecutive cuts made (currently)
  • 2 wins
  • 12th – highest OWGR

Wolff

  • 36 professional tournaments
  • 7 missed cuts
  • 1 WD
  • 11 consecutive cuts made
  • 1 win
  • 12th – highest OWGR

Morikawa

  • 40 professional tournaments
  • 4 missed cuts
  • 23¬†consecutive cuts made
  • 3 wins (1 major)
  • 4th – highest OWGR

Xander Schauffele Three Line/Bar Adidas Callaway Hat

If you have been watching the PGA Tour in early 2021 you will notice that many pros have different clothing, hats and clubs. Jon Rahm is now with Callaway, Matthew Wolff is sporting the new SIM2 Hawaiian looking hat and Xander Schauffele is wearing a three line or three bar hat with Callaway on the side. Is this a Callaway hat and what to the three lines or bars mean?

What Green Callaway Driver is Jon Rahm Using in 2021?

Jon Rahm made his PGA Tour debut as a Callaway “ambassador” at the the Tournament of Champions in January 2021. In late January Rahm headed back to Torrey Pines and the Farmers Insurance Open. As a former champion, many eyes were on him and noticed he was decked out in Callaway from head to toe and in the bag. So, what is in the bag (WITB)? What green Callaway driver is Jon Rahm using in 2021?

Driver: Callaway Proto Triple Diamond (10.5 degrees)
Shaft: Aldila Tour Green 75 TX

4-wood: Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero (16.5)
Shaft: Aldila Tour Green 75 TX

5-wood: Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero (18 degrees)
Shaft: Graphite Design Tour AD DI (Black) 8 X

Irons: Callaway UT Proto (3), Callaway Apex Proto (4-PW)
Shafts: Project X Rifle 6.5

TBD on UT or 5 Wood
Wedges: Callaway Jaws Forged JPN (52-10, 56-12, 60-10)
Shafts: Project X Rifle 6.5

Putter: TaylorMade Spider X

Ball: Callaway Chrome Soft X

If you are looking to buy Jon Rahm’s Callaway driver in January or February 2021, it is not exactly “available” to the public. It will be interesting to see if this green Callaway driver is available when the amateur golf season really kicks off in the spring of 2021.

Matthew Wolff & Dustin Johnson Hawaiian Looking Golf Hat

At the Farmers Insurance Open, in late January 2021, Matthew Wolff unveiled the new SIM2 Taylormade driver hat. If you see him at a glance, it looks like some kind of Hawaiian style print on the front of the hat. This is what it looks like:

Collin Morikawa’s Right Leg on the Golf Swing

Collin Morikawa has already won a major championship by the age of 23. Many would argue he would never have won that PGA Championship had there been fans, but that is a discussion for another time. I will make a bold prediction and say that Viktor Hovland will win more majors than Collin Morikawa.¬† Let’s look at Collin’s swing to explain why I think Viktor will be better.

If you are like me and often tee it up without a foursome you may have bumped into former college baseball players or even former Major League Baseball (MLB) players that can absolutely stripe it down the middle in golf. Why is it the case that baseball players, especially pitchers, can hit the ball a mile and are generally good at golf? Here’s why:
