    Yep... that was unexpected considering how both those guys played yesterday. Oh well...

    I forget what network is airing it this weekend, but those guys are pissed that the big names are all out. Ogilvy is the biggest name left... Their ratings could have been great but will now just be okay.

    First off, I dont follow golf, so please excuse my ignorance, but I'm currently trying to learn golf and was wondering who are the best players to watch "fundamentals" wise? I know golf, like any sport for that matter, is 99% mental, and the mind can overcome many natural flaws in form. So with that in mind, the "best players" may not necessarily have the best "form."

    So I'm wondering, who on the PGA tour in your opinion has the best form? Who should I watch to pickup some pointers? When is the next tournament in which they play?

    Thanks in advance!

    If Tiger can putt the way he did at Lake Nona, there's no question that he'll win it. If he struggles with his distance or getting the ball started on line, even if it's for just one of the four days, he'll end up with a lousy top 10 finish.

    There are a few people who have a legitimate shot at this one, but Tiger can put those thoughts to rest by Friday morning if he comes out of the gates the way I think he's going to.

    Well, you can learn from almost anyone out there, starting this weekend at the Shell Houston Open on NBC. Legitimately, I learn little things from almost every player. There are so many parts of the swing, and so many other fundamentals that have to do with positioning, posture, balance... You almost need to go swing the clubs for a while and feel how YOU swing, see what you're having problems with, and then watch for players with the same build as you and try to watch them.

    If you're looking for pure form, Tiger is always a good example, but there are other guys out there like Charles Howell or Adam Scott who have good form. There are older guys that still swing it great, so you can look at them if you're not quite as flexible as the young kids.

    Most of the "star" players are taking this week off, because next week is the Masters, the first major championship of the year. If you don't see someone to emulate this week, you can always tune in next week.

    Ernie's finally back to his form from before his knee injury. Now he just needs to figure out how to win again...

    So, Dude, did you watch anything over the weekend, or are you waiting for this weekend? One of the good things they always do is analyze different people's swings in slo motion. They are good about describing the different positions that people get into and how they match up to other players. Very informative stuff if that's what you're looking for, and they do it all the time on the telecasts.

    Compared to 30 years ago, when there weren't as many feeder routes to the Tour, the differences in the various swings are much less pronounced today due to the ready availability of instruction from an early age. One doesn't see many idiosyncratic swings like Arnold Palmer's or Lee Trevino's any more.

    You might try to focus on someone with the same bodyshape / height as yourself, since the geometry of the club and ball at impact will more closely approximate your situation.

    For more universal attributes, like tempo or balance for instance, there are numerous good models available.
