Here's a video of him preparing for the Masters, swinging clubs & playing along Tiger when he was younger, in case you guys missed it.

His average tee off is ~235 yards....challenging...even though Augusta rewards precision, distance is also required....wiat till he grows up and increases his distance....

New tech and cookie cutter, robogolfers as Tigge sees it. Shocked

nothing wrong with using technology ... hogan didn't have video cam - tiger did ... tiger didn't have v1 - guan & koreans do...

it's just like digital cameras ... ppl like cartier-bresson didn't see the results of his work till he got into the darkroom, you and i can see immediately & learn from it.

The learning curve's simply steeper. Faster.

And that observation about spending 6 mths to a year indoors, just hitting balls repetitively ... how's that different from grooving your swing at the driving range?

I'm just curious ... is there anyone who has mimicked hogan? If the technology is there & there are loads of videos of hogan to cookie cutter with, where are the hogan clones???

end of the day, i don't think tiger said anything negative about technology ... just accept that the new generation have the benefit of tech

laser,

Agree with you, and that it is now indispensible in the sports world.

Though, I wonder if they have the mental capacity to maintain mental composure to win games constantly. That, will separate the boys from the kids.

I draw examples from the entertainment world, that young singing sensations crash and burn early in the career due to their temperement and behaviour.

But then again, the more you play, the 'mature' you get.

Magic,


Im telling you, he played like a veteran today. He played like a journeyman, a 28-year-old journeyman who has been around the block and made a ton of cuts.

-Ben Crenshaw, flightmate.


Looks like he ain't your one hit wonder. Shocked

AG ... funny, I was also thinking about the mental aspects.

The technology that each generation has had (& that we're talking about so far) gave players the ability to catch swing errors faster & faster ... the swing devt cycle/loop got shorter ... bad techniques have less time to become habits.

I'm not aware of any "tech" that helps the players develop the mind. Though I read somewhere that Tiger had used recorded subliminal messages to develop his mind ...when he was a little boy!!! Will we see golf clones like in The Island (2005 sci-fi movie)?

There's no doubt that real-world playing experience is mandatory. I guess it's a matter of sequencing ... do you hit the course when you're 10%, 50% or 90% confident of your technique? No definitive answer there, right? The "hit balls indoor 6mths to a year" generation just happen to choose to graduate to the course after achieving a higher level of swing competency.

hahaha Guan has already won IMHO ... to be able to make birdies without any blow-ups ... for a Masters 1st timer it's already a monumental achievement. And that putt from the fringe in front of the 18th gallery ... that tells us so much about his composure. Hope he does well in Rd2 & makes the cut Twisted Evil
