    :nod it's a head game. all the "coaches" the pros hire, are experts on the physical game but the good ones keep the player's head straight.

    I loved Bubba's comment about his 2nd shot on #10. paraphrasing...."I had a good lie and an opening and I'm pretty good at hooking a shot so that's what I did"

    Congrats to Bubba.

    I was surprised to see him win, enormous talent but I've thought he is/was wired too tightly to handle the heat. Bubba proved me wrong, he stayed in the moment, playing one shot at a time.

    And that shot on #10 in the playoff was out of this world. The only other guy I can think of who might be able to do that is Mickelson. Just wow.

    all of those who've achieved title-level status have pulled off similar feats. I've seen Tiger do it too. (not this week tho. :lol3) It's what one has to do to get to that level. For some, there is a personal motivator behind it....Phil's wife beating cancer, Bubba's new baby, etc...


    everything he said in the post tournament interview last night indicates the focus required. when he was down earlier in the day he mentioned
    "I just had to keep grinding out the scores" He knew what was needed and drew on his talent at the time. Bubba has probably hit hundreds of shots like that, or tougher than that in his golf career...what differentiated him yesterday was his ability to do it when it needed to be done.


    it was a f-ing awesome shot though wasn't it :eek1 :clap

    I'm wondering if Oosthuzien missed the GIR on #10 because he just missed, or because he played safe because he felt Bubba didn't have a chance from where he was. He put a little too much on his 3rd shot and it left him above the hole...tough, tough putt from where he was, not to mention the stress after watching Bubba drop it on the dance floor in 2.

    In the not too distant future it will be real news when he does make a cut.

    Hey Bert, what kind of saddle did you end up getting for the C14?

    I haven't pulled the trigger yet, it's been too cold and wet here to ride for fun. I'm going to go with a Corbin, I don't like the shape of the Sargent, it's too much like the awful stock seat. I called Corbin today about the ride-in service and probably will go down to Hollister the last week of the month.

    Try to test one first, the ones I've ridden have been way too firm and push you back into a pocket.

    Some of the cops are complaining about the shape and rock hard foam.

    The Heli Horizon ST bars are really sweet, I have a sample set on right now.

    Figure out your bar position before you do the seat, the pressure position on legs or ass changes pretty dramatically with the risers.



    Our drunken best ball foursome beat Tiger by 1 stroke yesterday. :freaky

    My fat ass needs to be back in the seat. :lol3

    I've had a Corbin on one of my earlier bikes, rock hard if it's the right shape is much better than too soft for long days in the saddle, and one of the reasons for the ride-in service is to try to get a good fit.


    :rofl

    What did you do, whisper something about Elin and $100 million just as he was hitting his driver?
