@PingTour "Son I've hit flop shots farther than that." Bubba isn't joking, he lead this week's field in driving distance averaging 316 yds off the tee

Graeme McDowell
@Graeme_McDowell RT @shamrockgolf What is the key to consistent short iron play Graeme? This bit I am missing. >> Practice distance control

@Graeme_McDowell RT @stros74 @Graeme_McDowell you ever hit it 363? >> Yeah - drive and a wedge that for me

Kris Tamulis
@kktamulis My pro am group is smoking cigars. I seem to always be downwind and I swear I feel like I'm smoking one myself. Hack hack

@kktamulis Cart says we are 68 minutes behind our time par... someone bring me a pizza, we have 4 holes left

JANUARY 28
Arron Oberholser
@ArronOberholser Dare I say, caddie view of Tiger's swing is looking a little stack and tilty. Not a bad thing. He's got the club more in front of him.

Peter Kostis
@peterjkostis OK! Here it is.Will take a couple of tweets. (Sunghoon Kang) He gained 40 yds buy really only 20.The other 20 was how much distance he lost from swingin bad.

@peterjkostis His swing was too lateral trying to get to his right side and then thru the ball. lots of off center hits and xtra spin producing weak shots

@peterjkostis He now is pivoting better and creating more rotary speed with his body. Result is more solid contact and better ability to rip thru impact.

@peterjkostis Sorry it's nothing you can buy! You have to practice and improve your pivot if you want to add distance like Kang.

Graeme McDowell

@Graeme_McDowell RT @thebizzle777 @Graeme_McDowell what was better Gmac... Holing the winning Ryder cup putt, or winning a major? >> Both were amazing

@Graeme_McDowell RT @DevonPharazyn @Graeme_McDowell so let me get this straight, golf world says your draw wont hold up? are they mad? >> Apparently
