This putt made me laugh

That's pretty funny.

I remember Phil Hellmuth Jr.(Arguably the worlds greatest poker player) said something similar. "If it weren't for luck, I'd win em all" in regards to poker tourneys. :lol:

i haven't seen it before but it is a pretty funny/sick little vid. His victory lap around the basket with arms up made me laugh.

i had a similar putt twice accept i miss the basket completely and as it faded nose up behind the basket the headwind crashed it in the chains.

"if wind was not a factor, i would not have any luck at all!"

As if Dave wasn't good enough already, he gets crazy lucky breaks like that?!

well, I think top-pros, get more breaks like that, because they are much more often in a situation, where a bit of luck can help them. Most ams wouldn't be hitting the basket in those conditions.

That was at the Louisville Open this year. That hole that he threw it on is a long hole. It's around 700 ft. He ended up being the winner.

I think you've got that pretty backward. From what I've noticed - as you get better and better, you seem to feel you get worse and worse luck. This is because you're simply puring a lot more shots, you're hitting a lot more putts solidly. Worse players seem to get way more good luck kicks because they're throwing bad shots more often. Their bad shots are punished, as they should be - but they have a lot of those bad shots kick good. Top pros on the other hand don't throw as many bad shots, and so don't see as much good luck.

Hope that makes sense?

I think you are over analyzing but I tend to agree with the first comment. In a way you create your own luck, and I think as skill rises you tend to run into those lucky situations more often.

If someone did that fruity celebration in my group I would hate them. What a self-centered douche.

I hope your not being serious. Care to explain how Pros having fun, instead of bitching and whining about everything, is a bad thing?

If I was playing for hundreds maybe thousands of dollars and was trying to focus on my upcoming putt and some douche was running around the basket I would be annoyed. Over-celebrating is lame.
