Heard this on the radio a bit ago, and MAN did it blow me away like it always does.

Probably a re-post, but hey.. it's OK when it's good music!

No way was it as such going into the tournament, but my money's now on Adam Scott to wrap it up.. I know, I know.. Going out on a limb. He's just playing too well to do something as horrific as it would take to lose this thing. I expect several of the guys to go low and put some pressure on him. McDowell, Tiger, Zach, and even Bubba & Dustin should be able to put a scare into these guys by posting a -7 or -8 early. Of course if the wind blows (and we all know the wind can really blow over there), that's even more of an advantage for Adam Scott.

Should be interesting!!

Not True!

Via

"1400 feet per second"   is a velocity.. a speed. Velocity = Distance ÷ Time

This means Time = Distance ÷ Velocity.

So.. the image should read: "The response time of a .357 is the distance from your target divided by 1400." At 14 feet, this would be 1/100 of a second. At 140 feet, one-tenth of a second. At 1400 feet, or a little over a quarter mile, it would take 1 second.

Get it right people!!

Here's an article about them..

Zach Johnson's Amazing Golf Shot

...in case you haven't seen it yet.

This is one of the most difficult shots in the game of golf - the fairway bunker shot.

Here's the reason it's so tough: Over time, most golfers become fairly capable of getting out of a green-side sand trap, in which you hit behind the ball with the face open, and slide under the ball, allowing the sand to "blast" the ball out. You never touch the ball. But the fairway bunker shot requires you to hit the ball as if it were a regular fairway shot, but you must make perfectly clean contact, taking no divot. You have to "pick it clean".

I always tell people to put the ball a little back in their stance, use one club longer than you might think, close the face a tiny bit, aim about 10 yards right of where you normally would, and swing at a steeper angle, so that you pick it clean, and then get out - without risking any type of divot. Hit this type of shot a little fat, and it's gonna go about 30 yards. Hit it a little thin, and if it doesn't re-bury itself, it might go 10 feet.

So this is already one of the toughest shots there is. Magnify it by the fact that this is during a tournament.. a PGA Tour event.. on Sunday.. in a sudden death playoff for the title:

The shot won him the tournament. Well done, Zach!
