Does Brooks Koepka Have A Rival? Let's Check The Data! (S2E13)
Brooks Koepka came out in an article today stating that he doesn't see that he has a rival, not even Rory McIlroy qualifies. Brooks sees himself as Number 1 in the world, more majors than anyone else in the last few years, and smooth sailing ahead. But what does the performance data on his golf say about his game, and what does it say about Rory's game. We have the data, let's review.

Three graduates of the Korn Ferry Tour battling it out for their first PGA Tour win. And none of them blinked, it was good golf right to the end. Lanto has an amazing story of perseverance, as do many who have come up through the mini tours. If we a feel-good win for everyone involved. Let's take a look at the data on how Lanto got it done, and see if there are some areas of his game that can make ours betters.

Fred Shoemaker on Tension in the Golf Swing (S2E11)
We have all heard that tension is a killer of good golf swings. But how can we identify tension in our golf swings, and how can be get rid of tension in our golf swings. I can promise you have never heard it covered quite like how Fred Shoemaker and Evan Schiller (Evan Schiller Golf Photography  view tension in the golf swing. If you would like to face the tension in your golf swing, and know how to dismiss it, this episode will be a good one.

Get To Know Henrik Stenson (S2E10)
Henrik Stenson is a major champion, a silver medalist, he's won on 5 continents, a FedEx Cup and Race to Dubai Champion. And he has accomplished all of it using his trusty (and now dead) 3-wood. Ugh, what now. And a discussion on non-conforming clubs and what should be done, if anything, about the PGA Tour's decision to test 30 players each tour stop.

Fred Shoemaker On Finding Your Best Grip (S2E8)
The only connection we have with the club is through our grip, and yet the grip can be a very confusing topic for many golfers. We hear that a strong grip is better, or a weak one. We have a pro show us a "proper" grip, and it works for a while and we play better, and then we don't. The answer we learn from Fred Shoemaker is we should be playing with the best grip for us, the grip that our bodies are designed to use, but how can we easily find that grip, and keep it consistently? Let's tee it up! #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict #nowhitebelts #talkbirdietome #FredShoemaker #Extraordinarygolf Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dataaxisgolf/ Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dataaxisgolf/

Safeway Open Has Its Champ! -Data Monday (S2E6)
Cameron Champ is a special talent. He can hit is a very long way, and actually lead the 2017 US Open in driving distance as an amateur. Now as a two-time PGA Tour winner, can he settle down and play more consistently?

Fred Shoemaker On Proper Practice Strategies. (S2E3)
Wow, another really cool episode where Fred Shoemaker explains what we need to avoid in our own practice. You will find this fascinating, I know I did. The first time I heard this it blew me away, it still does. If we aren't careful we run the risk of actually practicing distrust while we are on the game. Sounds crazy right? Let's let Fred explain.

Simple is Best For All Golf Swings (S2E2)
Arnold Palmer said it best when he said "Swing your swing." Unfortunately many out there have interpreted that to mean, "do whatever crazy thing you want to do and you can still play great golf." That isn't what Mr. Palmer meant. We see unorthodox swings on the PGA Tour, and some have used those swings to be very successful and even win, but does that mean being unorthodox is best?

Players Think Rory Beat Brooks Too (E174)
For the first time in 28 years, the Player of the Year award based on the PGA Tour points system and the Player of the Year award based on the Tour player's opinion do not match up. Rory McIlroy was chosen as Player of the Year over Brooks Koepka by their fellow competitors. What happened? Do majors not matter to the Tour Players most anymore, or was there something else going on?

Fred Shoemaker on Commitment and Freedom (E172)
Learning to play golf with freedom should be the goal of all golfers, but actually learning how to play that way isn't as simple as it sounds. Fear tends to creep in, worry about not looking bad in front of those we are playing with, or just not performing up to our capacity takes away our freedom. Fred Shoemaker shares his insight in how freedom is possible in golf in this insightful discussion.

Know The Benchmarks To Improve Your Game (E171)
Many of us expect too much of ourselves on the golf course. We have it in our heads that the PGA Tour pros never miss a shot, or we have lofty expectations for our own games and aren't realistic. By understanding and knowing performance benchmarks we can no only relax and see our game in a correct light, but we can make sure we are working on the part of our game that is the weakest. Tour players do the exact same thing. What are your performance bench marks? Do you have a "tour quality game" in some aspects of your game.

Fred Shoemaker - On How To Best Learn Golf (E170)
Fred Shoemaker is a renown golf instructor. He founded a Top 25 rated golf school and has coached the brightest minds in golf. He has authored two amazing book on golf and was kind enough to share his insight with us in a lengthy discussion a few weeks a go. In this episode I have pulled out a very important part of the originally 45 minute discussion, and although this might be the shortest portion of the discussion, I believe it to be the most important and impactful when it comes to long-term golf learning. And I mean the kinds that sticks forever. The concepts Fred touches on here are not easily understood at first, I know it took me a while to process, but once understood and unlocked, golf learning will never be the same, and your ability to get as good as your natural ability will allow will be possible.

Rory Roars to FedEx Cup Win (E169)
Rory McIlroy had a very consistent year, and he finished the year up with a $15 million payday at the FedEx Cup. Let's look at Rory's numbers compared to his 2019 averages and see what we can learn. Our benchmarks produced from the 2018 season held up well this year, and there will be minimal changes for the 2019-2020 season. Which is great new for those of us that like to use data, real data, to work on the weakest part of our games to get truly better.

Fred Shoemaker - On Golf Mindset and Proper Learning. (E168)
Many of us were raised to believe that we had to learn skill and beat into our brains, body, muscle memory in order to become good golfers. Well, it turns out that isn't the case. Fred Shoemaker shares with us the proper mindset me must have to learn golf in a more meaningful and exciting way. This episode goes deep, it is one of my favorites and the very essence of the Extraordinary Golf School and Fred Shoemaker's unique and brilliant coaching methods.

Putt Better! Starting Now! (E167)
We have been fed misinformation for years on how to read greens, the best putting strokes, best grips, stance, balance, everything. But are you a better putter today than you were last year, or 5 years ago. The answer to that is probably no, not if you looked at the data. So why can't we get better? One simple sentence from Fred Shoemaker changed the way I putt today, and in less than a minute Fred Shoemaker took me from the worst putting of my life to the best ever. You can too, here is how.

Bryson DeChambeau's Biggest Problem Isn't Slow Play... It Is This (E164)
Bryson DeChambeau is an incredible talent; he has created quite a persona for himself as a mad golf scientist (which is a nickname I also claim for myself).  But unfortunately for him, he has also become known as a slow player, and last week sure didn't help anything. Bryson wants to play faster, but his slow play is the results of a much bigger problem.

Brooks Koepka's Secret Winning Weapon
Great start at the Wyndham! And I am sure many of those out there who are struggling to keep their card, or get into the playoffs, wishes they could bottle up some of Brooks Koepka's winning ways.

Setting-Up Should Be Athletic (E154)
You have probably heard some say setting-up takes zero athletic ability to do properly. And that is true, if you don't consider golf to be an athletic activity. Getting setup properly and athletically can't be overlooked when you want to play your best.

Koepka Apparently Cares and Morikawa Jumps (E153)
Brooks Koepka made it look really easy, far easier than many of us thought he would. Rory didn't put up much of a fight. And Brooks putted well all week, which doesn't happen much. Collin Morikawa not only won the Barracuda, but he won his PGA Tour card and is in the top 50 of the FedEx Cup standings with all his fine play. The data is pretty cool this week.

Amateurs Feel Pressure Too! (E152)
Each year as the PGA Tour winds down so many discuss the pressure the "on the bubble" tour players feel. And we are hearing more about it as the Barracuda Championship continues this weekend.

Fred Shoemaker - Golf Wisdom from A Lifetime of Living Golf Extraordinarily. (E150)
Fred Shoemaker has been revolutionizing golf instructions for 44 years now. He has written two seminal books on golf (Extraordinary Golf and Extraordinary Putting) and has run a Top 25 Golf School program for those years. I met Fred & Jo Shoemaker and the rest of Extraordinary Golf some 13 years ago, and my golf life and life in general, has never been the same. The following episode may be the best golf podcast episode ever, and it has nothing to do with me. The wisdom and knowledge Fred shares in this conversation will help clarify how we all should be learning golf, there is a better way. #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict #nowhitebelts #talkbirdietome #extraordinarygolf #fredshoemaker Follow us on Instagram: >>Click HereClick Here

Shane Lowry - King of the Irish (E149)
Shane Lowry in predictable fashion wins the British Open, after mission the last four cuts of this fabled major. And he did it in style, as an Irishman, former Irish Open champion, and with a course record on Saturday to permanently put it out of reach. No one made up any ground, and Shane finished with a six-stroke win. Let's check out the data that got this historic win done.

I'm thinking about taking a quick trip to Vegas!

Brooks Koepka Blows Minds at the British (E144)
Well, its the final major, it's Brooks Koepka, and it's a bit of controversy. Brooks Koepka has been coming out of his shell and sharing more and more about himself. With each major he seems to be more comfortable with who he is, and could care less and less what anyone else thinks about it. IT IS AWESOME! Brooks had more to say in his press conference, and I couldn't stop laughing. Are there some things the USGA could learn from the R&A... Don't get me started, but there is one major glaring differences in the two governing bodies, and the R&A has always been on the right side of this one.

The year is closing quickly, way quickly if you ask me. We have only have two full-field PGA Tour events, a major, The British Open, and a World Golf Championship and that is it for the 2018-2019 regular season. That is so hard to believe. And with the changes to the tour schedule, there are many players, who we know and love, who are going to be on the outside looking in, if they don't have a perfect couple of weeks.

Pretty easy to pick out what is different in his swing.  Matt Wolf seems to be playing "well" or is he, and can he depend on that unique swing of his? Hideki has supposedly fixed his putting woes with a narrower stance?!? Is that seriously all it takes? And did Brooks Koepka tell us just recently he doesn't like to complain?!? Oh boy!

Michelle Wie - What Say Ye? (E139)
In the golf world, we have been talking about Michelle Wie since she was ten years old. She was going to be the female Tiger Woods and dominate the game for years to come. At 13 she could hit her driver 320 yards, no one had a chance, the LPGA was going to be her playground, and she was going to be the bully on the block for decades. Well, that didn't happen. Her career has not been what the experts thought it would be, but how does it measure up in her mind?

Jordan set a personal best record through 54 holes of the Charles Schwab Challenge, making everything in sight, but is he back to his old form? We will compare this year's stats to his stats from his banner years in 2015 and 2017 and compare the results. There is much to learn from Jordan's journey for our own games.

Kevin Na Is Nails At Colonial (E121)
Kevin Na goes into the final round with the lead, and never looks back, playing solid golf the back nine to enjoy a rather easy win. Earlier in the week Kevin mention how Colonial Country Club is one of only six to eight courses he believes he has a chance to win on anymore, due to the length of some of the course played on the PGA Tour. That is tough to hear, but bombers have a huge advantage in the game now, as the Strokes Gained numbers are proving. In today's show we will discuss in depth the number of Kevin Na's winning performance, and see if there are parts of his game we should emulate to get better.

Uphill and Download Lies (E120)
Do uphill and downhill lies give you problems when you are playing? Uphills lies used to cause me all kinds of problems. I spent a considerable amount of time myself, and a few hours with Fred Shoemaker to turn this huge weakness of my game, into a solid part of my game. I love playing all kinds of uneven lies now, you can too.

Pressure-Free Putting (E119)
We amateurs do not get to practice as much as we want, and when we do have time to practice we aren't totally sure what we need most. Well, let's fix that today, at least with putting. Based on data, we can change our practice strategy to give us the best chance to succeed, increase our confidence on the greens, and make our putting the envy of our playing partners. Use this formula to get the pressure out of putting, and enjoy making more pars and birdies.

It's Brooks Koepka's Kingdom - Data Monday (E118)
Now that was a golf tournaments. Congrats to the PGA, Bethpage, the PGA Tour. That was an awesome test of golf. What Brooks Koepka did the first two days of the tournaments was astounding. What Dustin Johnson did all four days should have been good enough to win. We will use the data to explain. This is a geeky, data-heavy show, but super interesting IMHO. Bottomline, huge congratulations to Brooks Koepka, who continues to prove his best golf is played when the prizes are the biggest. Back-to-back PGA Championships, and back-to-back US Opens are in the books. Brooks is the Vegas odds-on favorite to win his 3rd US Open in a row at Pebble Beach later this summer. Wow! Let's tee it up!

This May Be the Best Major Performance Ever Recorded - Brooks Koepka (E117)
Brooks Koepka gained over 16 strokes on the field for the first two days of the PGA Championship. It is insane to watch. And he did it as Tiger and the Tiger faithful looked on and watched their hero fail to make the cut. Let's take a quick look at the numbers and make sure we take some time watching what may very well be the best performance in a major ever.  Let's tee it up!

Get Tons Better By Playing Tournaments (E116)
One of the coolest things about the majors, is they allow non-touring pros to participate. We have amateurs in the Master and the British Open, we have PGA Club Pros in the PGA and we have anyone who can qualify through the USGA system play in the US Open. It is so amazing! I wonder and worry about these players the most, but the opportunity they have to learn their game and get rapidly better is unparalleled.  Getting better at golf can be greatly increased through tournament play if you do it the right way. Let's tee it up!!

The Data Says The PGA Champion Is: (E115)
The PGA Championship is upon us! It is crazy we are going to have another major so soon after Tiger's victory at the Masters, and even crazier Tiger hasn't played a competitive round since then. Insane. In today's show, we will take the Vegas oddsmakers top 20 and apply a formula based on the player's performance data, versus the strength of Bethpage Black. It took a bit to create the formula and get all the right data, but let's take a look and see how it all shakes out. Let's tee it up!

Koepka's Stock Yardages Are Silly Good (E114)
The PGA Tour put up a photo today of Brooks Koepka's yardage book, which showed a hand-drawn table with all his stock yardages, tied to the length of the swing required to hit those yardages. It was a very cool photo to see, but it got me worried. Based on my recent experience, and trying to get my game back in the swing of things and remembering my stock yardages. There is a right way to hit shots of varying yardages as tour players do, and there is a wrong way as most amateurs do. Let's tee it up.

King Kang & Major Stricker (E113)
Congrats to Steve Stricker for his first major of his career. He shoots a -4 on Monday to win the rain delayed Regions Tradition, the first major of the year for the PGA Tour Champions. Steve is such an easy guy to root for, it is great to see him get it done! Sung Kang also got it done on the PGA Tour, winning the AT&T Byron Nelson, as he pulled away on the back nine. It was a very impressive round of golf, especially when you look at his data from 2018. He has put in some serious work, and now has the hardware to prove it. Let's get into the data that got it done for both these champions, and see what we can learn from their performances.

BodiTrak Data For A Better Golf Swing (E112)
New technologies are changing the way we learn and improve at golf. One of the most essential and informative tools is BodiTrak. The BodiTrak measures our "portable force" during the golf swing. Primarily how we use the ground when we are hitting a golf ball, it is fascinating to see how we move versus how we really should move compared to how the tour players use the ground during their swings. I learned a ton about my swing and now have a clear view of what I will be working on this summer to improve my game. Maybe it will work for you too!

Data Proves Fred Shoemaker's Golf Coaching is Best (E111)
For almost 40 years Fred Shoemaker has been coaching golf.  He released his first book on golf in 1996, Extraordinary Golf, The Art of the Possible. It was a book that should have become the most popular book on golf instruction ever, and it didn't. It is a shame, a world of golfers have suffered because they didn't know or follow what Fred has been teaching us. Now with the many different technologies such as Trackman, Boditrax, Swingbyte, and Blast to name a few, we have data, cold hard facts that the methods Fred has been attempting to teach the golf world have always been the right way to learn golf. Let's look deeper into the best way to learn golf.

Max Homa Makes Bank at Wells Fargo (E110)
Another cool weekend in golf. Congratulations go out to Megan Osland who played and won her two-day US Women's Open qualifier held at Bradenton Country Club in Bradenton, FL by shooting a 68-70 total respectfully. She will see her now at the 2019 US Women's Open being held at the Country Club of Charleston, SC from May 30-June 2. What an exciting experience and a big step for Megan, and good luck to her! Congrats also need to go out to Sei Young Kim, who barely held it together enough to get into a playoff barely, and then win the LPGA Mediheal Championship.  And finally congrats out to Max Homa to pick up his first win at the Wells Fargo Championship, a tournament where Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler both got their first PGA Tour wins.

Carmel Baby! (E109)
So it begins again. The best golf learning experience in the world begins this week, and I will thankfully be participating once again. I do not take this opportunity lightly, especially after missing last year. I know this is something most will never enjoy. To be with fellow students committed to getting better at golf the right way, a lasting way, to make deeper discoveries and we make deeper friendships is priceless. The Summer of Golf Mastery at Extraordinary Golf, hosted by Fred & Jo Shoemaker and their staff, is upon me. And if it wouldn't wake up everyone in this motel, I might let out a guttural yell in unabashed excitement.   I want to give you a peek into what is going to happen the next few days, not online today, but over the course of 5 months. This is the process that took me from an 18 handicap to scratch, and to a club championship. This is the very best way to really learn golf, and that isn't up for discussion.

Dumb Golf Expectations and How to Avoid Them (E107)
Most golfers are usually terrible at creating realistic expectations for themselves. I don't know what it is about golf, but we seem to think we should be performing at levels far outside our level or earned expertise, and yet, there we are with the cursing, the club throwing, and the lies to make ourselves feel better about our muliganless score. Watching golfers react to their poor play can be so sad and so hysterical at the same time.  We golfers tend to be a results-oriented group, and so focused on outcomes that we get in our way of the most rapid approach to lasting improvement and better play, and most of us haven't realized it yet. Focusing on your score, your shot or your outcomes is one of the very worst methods to improve, so let's discuss the best way instead.

Ryan Palmer and Jon Rahm win Big in The Big Easy! (E106)
Ryan Palmer and Jon Rahm got it done at the Zurich Classic. It was Ryan Palmer's first win in over 3,000 days on the PGA Tour. The odd pairing was necessary after their former partners were not available for this year's tournament. The best part about this pairing was how much fun they were having out there. They were playing fun golf, and the more fun they had, the better they performed. Jon Rahm hopefully learned a valuable lesson in just staying calm and having fun. When Jon hits a lousy shot and losing his temper, it is hard to watch, even for a Sun Devil grad. Let's take a closer look at how Ryan performed in 2018 measured against the benchmarks we have created to monitor and improve our games. Let's tee it up! Game Improvement Benchmarks: Driving Accuracy - 55%, G.I.R. - 65%, Sand Saves - 45%, Scrambling - 55%, Putting 20-25': 9%, 15-20' - 17%, 10'-15' - 28%, 5' - 80%, Per Round < 30 #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict #nowhitebelts #talkbirdietome  Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dataaxisgolf/ Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dataaxisgolf/

How bad it is, what does Dustin do to overcome such an extreme position in his golf swing? By taking still shots of a video of his swing we can break down the specific swing positions and learn much more about how Dustin does what he does, as well as he does.  Let's learn from Dustin Johnson to improve our games in this edition of Data Axis Golf Swing Analysis.

CT Pantastic & The Pride of Canada (E103)
C.T. Pan got it done after none of his pursuers could match his -12 total, after a closing round 67 at the RBC Heritage. It was CT's first win, and you could tell he was having a hard time getting his head around the fact that he was a PGA Tour winner. Always fun to see them in awe of their accomplishments. We will take a look at the numbers that got it done at a tight course in harsh conditions.  And on the island of Oahu, Brooke Henderson defended her LOTTE Championship title at the Ko Olina Golf Club for her 8th LPGA Tour win. That ties her with Mike Weir as the Canadian golfer with most wins on her tour. At 21, all indications are she will soon be Canada's winningest golfer and her mark will most likely be very hard to match when her career is over.   Let's tee it up! #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict #nowhitebelts #talkbirdietome  Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dataaxisgolf/ Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dataaxisgolf/

Who Coaches Tiger Woods? (E102)
Welcome to Harbour Town and the RBC Heritage. I think the guys love to play the tournament after a major. For those that didn't play in the major, its good to feel like you are a tour player again, and for those that played in the major, it useful to mentally get yourself refreshed and back into "normal" tournament golf, ATM golf. Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson had some fun things to say about playing in the RBC. We discuss briefly weight movement in the golf swing while looking back at Jin Young Ko's swing. You can download a PDF of her swing in the notes of the last podcast to follow along. And in the "I'm not surprised" portion of the podcast, we discuss the next dumb thing Brandel Chamblee has tweeted out. This guy is a gold mine of gaffs and goofs. I love the man. Brandel's silliness is further confirmed by researcher and author Joe Peta, in his recent book "A 2019 Masters Preview." It is a brilliant look at Tiger's greatness, and the difficulty of winning the Masters when looking at the Strokes Gained data created by Professor Mark Broadie.  Brandel's newest addition of thoughtlessness concerned Tiger Wood's non-existent coach, and how Tiger has coached himself back to greatness. Ahhh, is that the case?

Tiger's 15th Major - A Masters Win for the Ages (E100)
There are not many unused superlatives when attempting to describe Tiger Wood's victory at the Masters this year.  His 15th major, leaving him only three behind Jack Nicklaus. It had been 14 years since his last win at the Masters, and 22 years since his first Masters' victory. It is tough to use words to describe just how incredible all of that is. But for me, the thing that was the most impressive was seeing Tiger enjoy the victory with his kids. Not much was said about what those kids have been through while Tiger was hurt and healing. It isn't easy watching your dad suffer in pain, and struggle with their health. As a child, there is little that is so disconcerting as watching your big, powerful dad, be reduced to a shell of their former selves.  To watch Tiger gut it out, then be able to embrace his kids, I mean to be healthy enough to pick them up and embrace them, after watching Tiger fall to his knees in previous tournaments after wrenching his back. How incredible is all of it? I am happy for golf, no question. Any of us who love golf know this was HUGE for the sport. But make no mistake, I am most pleased for Tiger's kids, they won big yesterday, and it was a more important win than Tiger's 5th Green Jacket. Let's look at the data that matters, and how Tiger got it done.

The Masters - Halfway to History (E99)
Two rounds of the Masters are in the books, and we have already seen history made. The number of players to make the cut is the most ever. We also have five tied for the lead, which is the most ever there after two rounds as well. Great stuff! History tells us that you need to be within eight strokes of the lead to win the Masters at the halfway point, which means anyone at E par or better is technically not out of it yet. In today's show, we will discuss those who missed the cut that surprised us, the performance data of the players through 36 holes and determine which stats are most important at the Masters. We will also discuss how the course is holding up against its historical scoring averages and difficult rankings.

The 2019 Masters Will Bloom Like A Rose (E98)
It is Masters' Eve, what a great time of year. Spring is here, golf is back, and the majors are upon us. The Masters is special as a major because it is played at the same storied venue every year. We know the place, we know the holes, we remember shots of our favorite players, we remember the good and the bad of those difficult greens. It is a tournament like no other.  We get into a bit of history of the Masters, and a quote by Bobby Jones, which is essentially the mission statement for Augusta National. It is fascinating to see how Bobby's Jones' dream has been protected. Finally, trying to figure out who will win the Masters can be a bit tricky. The champion will be required to have great control of their approach shots, must be able to get up and down when they miss a green, they must avoid 3-putts, on the course that has more 3-putts than any other course the tour plays, and the champion must make their 10-footers, whether that be for bogey, par, or birdie. 10 footers are key. We look at the leaders in all these categories to try to determine if there is a clear favorite based on the data.  And there is!  Let's tee it up. #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict #nowhitebelts #talkbirdietome  Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dataaxisgolf/ Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dataaxisgolf/

MASTERS WEEK! Wow! Are you kidding me! What a great weekend of golf. Jin-Young Ko wins the ANA Inspiration for her first major victory, and it propels her to the #1 World Ranking with her second victory of the season. Very cool. We have our first Augusta National Women's Amateur in one Jennifer Kupcho, with Maria Fassi pushing her the whole time. What a wonderful tradition (I wish it weren't on the same week as the ANA Inspiration).  And Canadian Corey Conners. Again wow! A Monday qualifier, -6 on the back nine to get the win the Valero Texas Open for his first PGA Tour win, and secures the last open spot at the Masters, what a fantastic thing to see. He birdies the first 4 out of 5 holes, then bogeys the next 4, to make the turn at even, then birdies the next three and 3 of the next 6 for the victory. Unreal.

Augusta National vs. The LPGA (E96)
It is a historic day in golf, with 75 of the world's top women amateurs starting play at the Augusta National Women's Amateur in Augusta, GA. The players will play the first 36 holes at Champions Retreat Golf Club on the Island and Bluff nines, which were designed by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, which is very cool. Then the field will be cut down to the low 30. On Friday, the entire field will play a "practice round" at Augusta National, with the remaining 30 playing the final 18 holes of stroke play on Augusta National on Saturday, to crown the first champion. All very, very, very cool stuff. What doesn't make sense is why the Augusta National powers that be would schedule this event on the same week as the LPGA's first major, the ANA Inspiration.

Kisner Cruises & McDowell Makes His Move (E95)
In case you didn't know... Kevin Kisner is crazy good at match play. After placing 2nd in the Dell Match Play last year, Kisner comes back in this year's version and wins it all. That makes Kisner 13-1 in the Dell Match Play the last two years! Let's hope he is on the President's Cup team, seems like a no brainer.  In the PGA Tour event in Corales Puntacana, Graeme McDowell makes it to the winner's circle again, in an amazing feel-good story of 2019. Graeme now has qualified for the British Open on his home course, Royal Portrush, the PGA Championship, and a 2-year exemption. That is a big deal. Congratulations are in order for both the champions, let's take a look at their numbers and compare them to our performance benchmarks.

Paul Casey Back to Back Jack (E94)
Paul Casey is you back to back Valspar Champion! No one has ever gone back to back on the Copperhead course at Innisbrook before, so that was quite a feat of brilliance. In tough conditions a 1 over par 72 for a 1 stroke victory over Louis Oosthuizen and Jason Kokrak. With the win, Paul takes home a check for a cool $1,206,000 bucks and a matching trophy to balance out his trophy case. Let's look at the data that got the job done for Casey, and compare his 2018 number to our benchmarks to see where Paul might need to work on his game. :)  Let's tee it up! ▶️follow @dataaxisgolf ◀️ #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict #nowhitebelts #talkbirdietome Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dataaxisgolf/ Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dataaxisgolf/

Chip Like A Champ Spring Edition (E93)
Now that Spring has sprung, we are ready to get out and play some golf!! In the spirit of Spring cleaning, let's discuss the proper chip shot. As we come out of our winter nap, we usually aren't as sharp with our short game as we will be mid-Summer. So, what are the best methods for us to keep it simple and avoid the double-bogey number? Which technique is the best when faced with less than perfect conditions, or over trouble?

Jim Furyk's New Goals & Your Best Ball Position (E92)
After a top 10 finish at the Honda, Jim Furyk surprisingly found himself qualified into the field for The Players Championship, he didn't even know that was possible. :)  After a brilliant final round and a second place finish at The Players, Jim Furyk now finds himself ranked 57th in the world, qualified for The PGA Championship and the World Golf Championships - Dell Technologies Match Play. In order for Jim to play again at Augusta, in The Masters, he would need to be inside the World Top 50 by April first, giving him this week at the Valspar and next week at the Match Play to get that done. To play again in the US Open, where his 10-year exemption has expired, he would need to be inside the top 60 on May 1st. Needless to say, it is an interesting time to be Jim Furyk.  Oh, and we will also touch on how to find your best ball position and what to do if you start hitting fat or thin shots. Harvey Penick taught that ball position was the second most important aspect to the setup, next to the grip.

Process Based vs. Target Focused Golf (E91)
There are some coaches out there teaching a "process based" type of coaching. Essentially where you only concern yourself with your set up, and focus on a few swings thoughts or mechanics and swing the club. The target is only part of the initial process to determine where you start your process. Is this an effective and efficient method to play golf? In Rory McIlroy's post victory interview at The Players Championship he quoted to have said: "...anytime I have a tough tee shot, I stand up, I pick my target and I swing as hard as I can" so there are also those who focus on targets and keep target a focus of their play. Which is better for you, which is better for amateurs?

Rory McIlroy - The Players Champion (E90)
Jim Furyk made it interesting and more than exciting. Charging up the leaderboard with a final round 5 under 67 to get take the lead in the clubhouse. But Rory McIlroy did not falter to the end this week, after a bogey on 14, Rory impressively birdies 15 and 16 to take the lead by one, then with precision plays 17 and 18 with confidence and poise to take The Players Championship. As the crowning jewel of an amazingly consistent run, finishing in the top 10 of his 6 last starts, including a 2nd at the WGC-Mexico Championship. To say Rory is in good form is a bit silly, he is playing as good as he has played in years. Let's dive into the data that got the win.

Justin Thomas Carrying a Big Stick (E88)
On this "Whatever Wednesday" episode, we discuss how Justin Thomas has been expressing his opinion and doing it in a way that demands attention. Even at only 25 Justin seems to understand his role and the ability he has to use his platform to encourage positive change to the game. We also discuss the true meaning of a Fred Shoemaker saying we shared early, namely: "Only when you have felt it, can you fix it." The definition of "feel" in this statement goes much deeper than what many assumed. Finally, we discuss how to use Tour Averages to keep our expectations for our golf game where they should be so that we can get maximum enjoyment out of the game.

Molinari's Masterfully Managed Victory at the API (E87)
Wow, Francesco Molinari burst into the winner's circle on the PGA Tour in 2018 with wins at the British Open and the Quicken Loans National, he then followed that with dominating play at the Ryder Cup, where he and Tommy Fleetwood teamed up to dismantle their American counterparts with relative ease. And now with a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, it is safe to say Francesco has found something. We dive into the data that got Francesco this win, we discuss the steps he took to improve his game to a new level of performance, and we get ready for another great week of golf, as the Players tees off on Thursday.

Arnold Palmer: A King of Life (E86)
Arnold Palmer burst onto the golf scene via a black and white television screen, and golf was instantly cool. He won majors and tournaments, he created an army of fans and more importantly achieved a level of greatness that now lives on after his passing. We take a look at Arnie's accomplishments in this podcast, reviewing some of the incredible data of his life from an article written by Cameron Morfit. He grabbed our attention, earned our support and eventually our respect and love. There will never be another Arnold Palmer, and we would be unwise to forget him.

Justin Thomas: Swing it Like You Just Don't Care! (E85)
We all overthink! We try to control our swings and shots with our conscious mind, and you know what, it just doesn't work quick enough to do it well. It is no fault of their own, they really want to help, but the most we can get out of them is a swing thought here or there or a negative thought right before we take the club back. To play really great golf, we just have to let it happen, just give everything we have practiced and all the experience we have earned a chance to shine through and get it done. If we try to control things with our conscious mind, we are just getting in the way of our best golf. Instead, let's be like Justin Thomas in his final round of the WGC Mexico Championship. He came right out and tied his own course record because "he just didn't care." Oh sure he cared about his score and performance, but he stopped caring about the outcome, his value wasn't attached to his performance, and like predictable magic, he went low, really low. He even had a makable birdie putt on 18 to break his own course record! So cool. So how can we play golf and keep our conscious mind out of it? Excellent Question!

What If Keith Mitchell Was A Better Putter? (E84)
This is Keith Mitchell's 2nd year on tour. He has played in 40 PGA Tour events and has made 70% of his cuts so far in his career. His putting has been very poor so far this year, but with the victory last week, it was the first time Keith has been a positive number against the field in the Strokes Gained-Putting (SGP) category. In this episode we take a few minutes to define SGP for a few of our listeners, then we dive in to see just how much more money Keith Mitchell would have made in the previous 5 tournaments, if he has just putted as well as he did last week, while playing in them. Additionally, we take the PGA Tour's leader (Brian Gay) in SGP and use his average to see how much more money Keith could have made if he was the best putter on tour. It makes for some pretty fascinating data.

Keith Mitchell Mastery at the Honda - Data Monday (E83)
On this Data Monday, we dive into the data that matter and look to see how Keith Mitchell was able to navigate the Bear Trap at PGA National and hold off Brooks Koepka and Rickey Fowler to get his first win on the PGA Tour. His victory took me back to the situation at the Desert Classic in Palm Desert where Adam Long came from seemingly nowhere to steal the tournament away from two other veterans, Phil Mickelson and Adam Hadwin. It was such an impressive win, to sink a birdie putt to win it all will be something he and many of us will remember for the rest of the year and maybe longer. In the data, we will see where Keith made the biggest jump in his game to get this win and discuss where he might want to stay focused going forward based on the data. Great success and some fun and interesting data in this Data Monday, The Honda Classic edition.

Brooks Koepka Finds His Voice (E81)
The Honda Classic is on, and Brooks Koepka is in the field and again is speaking to be heard. Brooks seems to have decided that 2019 will be the year that his opinions will matter, and we are happy about it. Many of us just thought Brooks didn't have much to say, but we have learned in a recent article that he didn't feel he had earned the right to speak his mind. We also hear from R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers who fortunately disagrees from Mike Davis on how the Rules of Golf had been received and implemented. It is refreshing to hear someone in power who gets it! Let's tee it up! Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas use very different methods to make their opinions on the new rules known. 😂😂 #golf #pgatour #golfers #lovegolf #rapidgolfimprovement #golfday #whyilovethisgame #golflessons #golflife #anythinggolf #beautifulgolfcourses #lovegolf #betterdatabettergolf #dataaxisgolf #golfislife #golfball #golftournament #golfcourse #golfrange #golfnews #instagolf #golfswing #golfing #golfaddict #liveunderpar #nowhitebelts #talkbirdietome #knowgolf #knowgolfer

Whatever Wednesday - Honda Classic - 1st Fred Says (E80)
Wednesdays are now "Whatever Wednesdays."  Giving us a chance to review all things golf for the week, the news, the feel good, and maybe feel bad stories, essentially... whatever. In today's show, we discuss how the schedule change has hurt the Honda Classic, how our perception of Rory McIlroy here in the US probably more positive, where Rory's decision to skip the Irish Open has raised some ire from his hometown paper. We discuss the difficult and near disaster at the Monday qualifier for the Honda Open, and even a little bit on the ridiculous outcry on backstopping. Give me a freaking break; let it die already. And finally, my favorite, the very first installment of "Fred Says," which will be a segment where I share a quote or teaching of Fred Shoemaker of Extraordinary Golf, and then discuss the how it can help us in golf and sometimes even in life. It is what a mentee should always do for a mentor, so here we go.  Let's tee it up!

I Am A Better Golf Coach Than Butch Harmon (E79)
Yep, I said it; I am a better golf coach than Butch Harmon. I don't want anyone's head to explode, so let me explain. I am a better golf coach than Butch Harmon... for my swing. And with technology to help us, we can all become the best coaches for our swings. When we choose a coach, we want to make sure they are asking us what we are feeling, what we are experiencing, for them to help us get closer to what is going on. Once we are experiencing what is going on, then our ability to get better goes throughout the roof. The key is to use technology and coaching to close that gap.

Dustin Johnson Wins Again On Foreign Soil - Data Monday (E78)
Dustin seems to like playing out of the country. This is his second worldwide win this season, and he won both outside the borders of the good ole US of A. This win was a breeze for Dustin, who is showing some form similar to what we say out of him in the early portion of the 2017 season, when it really felt as if no one could beat him. You could hear in Rory McIlroy's voice in his Saturday afternoon interviews that he felt catching DJ was going to be difficult, and he was correct.  At the Puerto Rico Open Web.com graduate Martin Trainer won for his first PGA Tour win, and pick up $540K for his efforts and a 2-year exemption on tour, which has to feel great! Let's look into the number of the Dustin Johnson win, and compare it to out benchmarks to see how they hold up.  Let's tee it up!

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 (E76)
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.
