Whenever you run into a genius you should give him a chance.


Current player or not i thought that this was so obvious that i didn't mention it. Me too.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Turbo putts and that learning to throw an aviar 250 dead straight and everything else can work off that from Mark Martin

Learned distance from a few Scott Stokely doubles clinics.

A consistent mental game from klimo. Having the skills is one thing, applying them consistently and competitively is another.

Mark Martin is a turbo putting machine

Everyone is after the elusive john greyowl 6000 foot wizard ace, its hard to teach though

Russ' gnar 3/4 sidearm spirit shot is nuts too

I'd like to learn the midrange game for longer courses from someone like Climo or someone that isn't throwing in the 500' range ad infinitum. I'd also like to learn better putting from someone like McBeth because we have a similar style, but obviously he's a little bit better at it than I am!

Turbo putts from John E. McCray.

Wait, is Will quoting Will in his own signature?

I suppose if I had to narrow it down I'd probably like to play around with Geoff Bennett to get advice on my sidearm. After that, McBeth on consistency... and maybe Cam Todd on putting. Now that I think about it, Wiggins Jr or Christian on throwing long D.
I am dumb.

...and a drama queen.

Funny. Funny funny.

You should also learn Mark's ability to hock plastic from his trunk too.
