Here is a round-up of some of the most interesting golf-related Twitter entries from the week of Feb. 21-27, featuring Lee Westwood, Karen Stupples, Hank Haney and more:
@HankDHaney When announcers compare apples and oranges it isn't good, comparing two swings is hard because u don't know what shot they were trying

@cincygolfpro "We spend so much time comparing our golf swing to others; be happy in your uniqueness and embrace it!" -- PGA Professional Melissa Yeazell
@HankDHaney Kostis gets it right, McCord gets it, Chamblee gets it too but PK is best because his analysis isn't based solely on how he sees the swing
@PaulAzinger There's an old saying"the heel digs, the toe cuts." Better to have toe deep divots than heel deep.bend irons flatter if heel of club digging
@peterjkostis When the legs/hips under/late rotate, the clubhead over rotates. When the legs/hips rotate too much/soon, the clubhead under rotates.
