Genesis Open Marathon Winner JB Holmes - Data Monday
Wow, that was a weird one at the Genesis Open this year. Much to cheer about with the improvement to the tournament going forward joining with Tiger Wood's charities and becoming an Invitational, more money, more extended exemption. Very cool. JB Holmes and Justin Thomas have history, which we didn't learn about until after the tournament, but did that mentor/mentee relationship play a role in the outcome. We look at the number that matter in both $$, but also in performance up against the performance benchmarks we use to manage and monitor our games. Let's tee it up!!

Holy Cow J.B. Holmes and Kuchar Does Right
Wow! Did anyone see that coming? Jordan Spieth was sitting in the clubhouse with a seven under par in his pocket, and J.B. Holmes comes screaming out of nowhere to throw down an 8 under 63 to snatch it away. Amazing! Matt Kuchar finally takes significant steps to put his this David Ortiz, Mayakoba Golf Classic garbage behind him, and the steps he took should end it. I think other players on the PGA Tour are going to take note that the public isn't going to look too kindly on players who come across as greedy. With social media and 24/7 televised golf, there is just too much craving for new news to make hiding from even the slightest hint of bad behavior to get by. They will have to take note. And finally, we dive into more data to see if our expectations on par 3, 4, and 5 holes are realistic, and also our perceptions of bogeys. These stats are useful data for not only a good discussion, but hopefully to help us get our perceptions where they need to be.

Sergio, Kuchar and PGA Tour Career Money Data
I tried to avoid it, but question have come from listeners about my thoughts on Sergio and Kuchar. We touch on both of those situation today, and that will be the last of it forever (unless we get another question) 👍. And we take a look at the career money leaders from the PGA Tour, how they got there, and how much they have averages over the course of their careers. There were some pretty big surprises.

Why 1-Plane Swings Are Best for Amateurs
In the podcast yesterday I mentioned I don't recommend a 2-plane swing for amateurs, especially those who don't have much time for long practice sessions. Some proponents of the 2-plane swing claim it is a more natural movement and generates more clubhead speed. We will look at the data from Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm (2-Plane swingers) and Adam Scott and Justin Rose (1-Plane swingers) all mentioned in a recent article on biomechanics. This a classic argument of performance vs. consistency. Who comes out on top?  Let's tee it up! #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #rapidgolfimprovement #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict

Welcome to Golf Geekdom
On Golf.com there was an interesting article entitled "Meet the biomechanist who's changing golf - and can help you gain distance." The article is about Dr. Sasho MacKenzie, who is a researcher of Human Kinetics at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. You may know him from the work he has done with the BodiTrak. In this article, it tells us of the easiest way to get more speed in our swing. Additionally, we look at some consistency numbers of top tour pros and see how their career average stacks up with their 2018 and 2019 numbers to see how they are trending. It's for fun. Let's tee it up!

Pebble Beach - Phil's Personal Playing Ground
Phil's wins for his 5th time on the hallowed grounds of Pebble Beach Golf Links. He started his round 3 strokes back and ended up winning by three after posting a seven-under 65 to lap the field. Phil also lets us in on why Pebble Beach is such a special place for him and his family. We take a look at Phil's stats and see where his performance was above his 2018 averages and carried him on to the win. We also compare Phil's statistics to our established benchmarks, to continue refining how we are going to track our games and make sure we get better this summer. Let's tee it up!

Matthew Wolff or Ho-Sung Choi?
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is upon us and Brian Gay and Scott Langley got out of the gates quickly with 64s at the Monterrey Peninsula Country Club Shore course. Phil Mickelson does something he hasn't done in about 20 years and finds himself close to the lead, in a tournament he has won 4 time previously. Phil loves the Poa Annua greens of his native California.  And, if you were forced to choose a swing you absolutely had to use the rest of your life, you had no other choice, would you choose Matthew Wolff's or Ho-Sung Choi's swing?

USGA Clarifies-They Need Help
The USGA has issued "clarifications" to rule 10.2b(4). Yes, that is how they list the rules. It is the rule that no caddie should assist their player line up. Instead of having a simple rule in the first place, the rule to convoluted and silly. So now they issue a clarification, which is two pages in an 8pt font. This clarification may add some additional insight to the intent of the rule, and I used the word "may" on purpose. But what it definitely clarifies is that the USGA is not about simplifying the game, because they simply don't know how. It is Data Axis Golf's belief that they must base their salaries on a per word basis. This is out of hand, let's give the USGA some free advice from those of us who are simple-minded.

Flagstick Fluke - Hold The Phone Pelz
New research published yesterday seems to contradict the research done previously by Dave Pelz. What gives? This puts Dave Pelz in a tough spot, will he release his data now? If he doesn't, he runs the risk of losing credibility in the golf world. This will be interesting.  While this new research is hardly comprehensive and is a far cry from being strategically helpful, it does add to the body of work, which is great. The data is now more muddled than ever, but with more data comes a better chance we will really get an answer to the flagstick question. Let's hope more will take up the flagstick battle cry and provide us with real research, transparent research that we can trust and can actually use to improve our chance of playing well.   https://www.golfdigest.com/story/putting-with-the-flagstick-in-could-be-a-mistake-new-golf-digest-study-from-cal-poly-professor-shows #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #rapidgolfimprovement #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict

The USGA - A History of Ineptitude
The USGA has made glaring mistakes and myriads of poor decisions over the last decade. It has become so common place that pretending they have their act together just isn't possible anymore. The USGA is broken. They are essentially Pam Am, or Blockbuster, or Kodak, but instead of being allowed to fail, they are propped-up and protected by their charge to oversee the game of golf in the United States. But is that right? Are they too protected to fail, even despite their inability to manage effectively? Something either needs to change in the USGA, or they need to be removed from their position of governance. They may need to be dethroned. What is Donald Trump's cell phone?

Dustin and Rickie Get It Done in The Desert(s)!
Dustin Johnson shoots 4 round in 60s to become the inaugural Saudi International Champion in a desert far, far away, while Rickie Fowler gets his long awaited win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open for his 5th PGA Tour victory. The 16th hole again stirs up some controversy, and Brandon Grace learns the hard way that galleries drowning in pools of liquid courage can be less than good sports. What shall we do with a tournament that is arguably the most environmentally responsible stop on the PGA Tour, while also being the most irresponsible when it comes to common human behavior...

Bubba, Bryson, Brandon, Justin, Rickie, Oh My.
Rickie started slow, finished FAST. Justin started faster, and came back to the pack. We learn about Bubba's new putting stroke and who his new putting pal is (we didn't say coach, Bubba makes it clear he has no coaches). Brandon Grace throws a 64 down with a hole-in-one, using an 8 iron from 193. No, that is not a typo, 193 yards!!! Waste Management Phoenix Open is a Zero Waste tournament. What in the world does that mean? And if you didn't see the Video with Gary Woodland and Amy Bockerstette, a Special Olympics athlete. IT IS SO GOOD. It is the best golf video of 2019, and it won't be beat. Gary Woodland is a stud. I have wanted it a bunch, I can't get enough of it.

Blame Big Money Sponsors for Slow Play
With recent comments from Brooks Koepka about the problems with slow play on professional golf tours, we again find ourselves mired in this discussion. But why don't the powers that be in golf just start enforcing the rules? As with much on this planet, when there is a problem we can seem to figure out, we need to follow the money. In this case we find that big golf sponsors, who pay tour players handsomely to proudly display their corporate logos on hats, shirts, golf bags, etc., want their players to be on our TV screens as much as possible. One way to do that is to take every allotted second to prepare to take the next shot. As long as there is big money being paid from big sponsors, the PGA tour would be simple stupid to punish slow play. Except to players that don't have a big sponsor. It just doesn't make financial sense to enforce slow play. The first round of the Waste Management Open could not have gone better for Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler. Justin Thomas with 7 birdies and no bogeys penciled a cool seven under 64. Rickie Fowler also shot a seven under 64, but he did it with 5 birdies and one eagle. The question now becomes can either of these two power houses hold on, with the better question being for Rickie Fowler, who has had a few close calls here in Arizona.

DeChambeau Dissects Dubai
Another impressive win for Bryson DeChambeau, who continues to prove to the world that using training aides that provide instant and correct data can transform you game.

Aimpoint Addresses Putting Proclivities
Equipment manufacturers are producing better putters, grasses on modern greens are quicker due to better agronomy and watering strategies.
