I'd imagine at this point he's probably thinking more about family and long term income/business ventures (rightfully so) and less about practice putting twice a day/7 days a week.
That's a very, very fair point. He was absolutely on FIRE from C1 during that tournament and if I could figure out how to view the stats from that year I'm sure he was 95%+.

not sure I agree that his forehand is serviceable enough though... he's so good at the turnover backhand shots that it doesn't matter as much as for other players that lack a good forehand but I don't remember him driving forehand once that entire tournament even though there are multiple holes that clearly set up better for a forehand line. You can make a backhand work but the forehand is the optimal play, and Doss didn't do that.

I was watching old USDGC coverage on Youtube and went back to the 2015 finals with the infamous JEM melt down on 17 and playoff.

It is some great golf to watch. Camera work has came a long way since 2015 IMO and it's kind of cool to see the progress.

Anyway, the reason I'm posting is because of John E's wizard throw on the long turn over hole 16 - PARK JOB. It appears to be the same tee they still play, but I don't know for sure (391 feet per 2019 caddybook). PMcB was on commentary and was pretty astonished by the shot. It was windy and they probably had a good wind for John E to go for the shot, but damn it was impressive.

Doss actually has an under-rated forehand. He doesn't go to it very often and he doesn't have elite distance, but he is absolutely money at those 270-320 foot forehand hyzer shots with his Force.

I watched all the past years footage of #17 #18 that I could find. Schusterick and Ricky also melted down on #17. That was obviously final round only. There have been more victims on other rounds too. Titillating to see who it eats up this year. Well, other holes too, but this is the main dish always.

JohnE has been throwing those sick putter anhyzers with a Shield since then.

If you (plural) want to #growthesport and make DG something great, then copying some good ideas from other sports is not a bad idea.

The Masters's tradition of the ceremonial tee-offs is a really nice thing. I remember seeing Mr. Sam Snead teeing off, and Mr. Bryon Nelson, nearly 100 years old, not teeing off but sitting there and being introduced. They're gone, but the great trio of Mr. Jack Nicklaus, Mr. Arnold Palmer, and Mr. Gary Player started doing it, and it was a sad moment seeing Arnold Palmer's green jacket being placed on an empty chair after he passed away.

DG is just getting to where there are 'old timers' that paved the way, and having ceremonial first throws would be very cool. I'm sure they could come up with some other great traditions over time, as well, and if those ideas are borrowed from other sports, so be it.

Only way to get that putt into the 90% range and bang with the big boys and girls is sheer repetition, every single day, like a samurai sharpening a sword. You know Pablo, Ricky, Paige and Eagle are doing it.

Have never watched any of the USDGC videos, so I really can't say how the course comes across on screen. But I recall what it looked like when I played there several years ago. I think the course is pretty scenic myself

...as long as they don't zoom in too close on the grass around the lake. Good lord, was that area ever laden with goose poop. Would definitely look better with a wide shot.
