Because I do.
No yet to do that. I'd rather play through and hope they have no clue who I am.... Maybe 1 day the will have a "omg" moment when they figure out why I threw a decent shot.

Thank you for taking the time to respond to all of these questions. For the world champ to spend time here just to answer questions is very selfless of you. I do have a quick question or two.

what percentage of energy would you say you use in your legs on a distance drive? I'm finding more energy in the legs is helping, but it feels more difficult to stay balanced. Also,

I feel like a reach back just past my body is optimal for me; is the true key to adding distance here more about longer reach back or timing it right? Max d is ~400 now

K last one. Kanye west love or hate?

Thanks again, best of luck this year! I will be rooting for you for sure, and buying at least one roc3 if it becomes your sig.
A lot of power for me comes from my legs. The hips are about 70 percent of my power I would say. The arm is like a whip, if you ever look at baseball pitchers they are almost the same way.

Your reach back only works if you can pull it through with speed still. So if a long reach back doesn't help get D find a way to speed up your pull through.

Loved his old stuff now he is doing anything for attention.

Thanks, Happy New Year

Fwhy, I am a big fan of you and mj now bc of these threads.
I don't think there is a reason to move up. I'm comfortable enough with the destroyer to cover ever shot I need.... So I would say not in the near future.

Can you clarify this? How are you deriving power from a leg that's not pushing into the ground (your back leg)?



You're on your toes from the end of your reach-back and then rolling over onto your toes before you even get to your sternum.

Happy New Year. Have a great 2013!

Do you have a regular person that caddies for you or no?

If not, can I caddy for you at Worlds or DGLO?
