    Does anybody watch this show? If so what do you think? I recently finished watching the latest version from Ireland.
    It is the first time in many years I watched the whole season.

    Decent enough show but except for maybe one or two of the females I don't ever see any of the men makng anything out of there games. They were decent but no where near tour caliber.
    You can see the difference with chipping, putting and basically any shot 70 yards or less.

  • Tim Kozlow - created a new topic State of this tour. in the forum.
    I will admit, I have always watched the women's tour. I can relate to there game much more that the men.

    This past week I watched the tournament from Orlando. I could not have been more bored with golf.
    I watch everything. I am just a golf fan.

    i know a couple of people close to this tour who tell me it is in big trouble. I was thinkng about some things they need to change.
    The forgien players own this tour now. We have no real American players who...

  • Tim Kozlow created a blog entry Golf from the eyes o...

    The following words are from the status of golf as I see it.

    My first thought when I read this website is wow. What I mean by that is there is so much information that it is overwhelming. There are so many different thoughts on the golf swing. There are so many so called people that claim to have this secert or that secert.

    Where do you start? I suspect that 95 percent of the people on here are not playing golf for a living, never have and never will.

    I go back to when I started playing. There was no internet, no swing coaches nobody hawking there DVD series or swing trainers or drill packages.

    I picked up a set of golf clubs out of the garbage and started hitting a ball. I spent hours on the range just swinging, trying this or that until something worked. Once I got a couple of positive swing thoughts that I could understand I just spent hours and hours perfecting that. I didn't care about swing planes, position of the club and this stage or that stage of the swing.

    I didn't care about weight shift or rotating my hips, I just swung. The ball was my teacher. All I cared about was where it went.

    It was all natural. Now it is so robodic. I got to a three handicap this way. I didn't care about lie angles or shafts. I just played.

    I miss that about this game. I myself have fed into all the different swing theories over the years. I am a 5 handicap now. I was better when it was natural.

    I guess my point is that I think golf as all sport is natural. You either have it or you don't. I don't care what professionals say not all guys will ever reach that level of golf.

    Most guys 99 percent can get better but the talent required to make it as a successful professional is born in you. I read of stories of guys now on tour who picked up a club and where scratch in two years.

    How? It is born in them. Aaron Badley comes to mind. Started golfing at 12 and won the Australian open at 19. How? did he have better teaching? no he had a natural ability to play high level golf born in him.

    I myself sometimes catching myself saying "If I just work hard I can get on the senior tour" That is denial to the upmost. I am not going to go out there and think I am going to stare down Tom Watson. He has been a touring professional and great at it for 40 years.

    I think golfers and people in general have to realize that when you have it born in you excelling at every level is a given. The best are the best at every level.

     

    My last point is I think of a guy named Lonnie Nielson. I grew up in the same area as him. He won everything this area, state had to offer for him golf wise. He did it for many years. He did make it to the senior tour and I think he won once or twice. He did well but unless you are excelling now and winning almost everytime you tee it up in a local or national event you are not going to step out on any professional tour where Couples or Watson or Lehman or anybody else like that and beat them.

     

    I wish we could just go back to that simple time. I have. I have two swing thoughts.

    That is it. I play much better now and enjoy it much more. I have 3 kids and a full time job and other obligations just like everybody else on here I suspect.

    Just keep it simple and realize it is nothing but a hobby for 99 percent of us.

    I do play local tournament golf and state wide tournament golf. I never have won but I enjoy it. I have come close but if I don't win regularly here I am not going to do it anywhere else.

  • Tim Kozlow - created a new topic Practice in the forum.
    I have a question relating to guys who live in cold wheather states.
    I didn't reall know where to post this. this seemed like as good a place as any.

    What do guys who live in snow belts do in the winter?
    How do you stay sharp?
    Do you just put the clubs away for the winter?
    How long does it take you to get it back come spring?

    I my self am lucky enough to have to indoor practice domes in my area. One is 100 yards long and one is 90.Read More...
