Haas thought about that putt again on Sunday at as he stared at a 12-footer for par on the third hole of his playoff with Brad Bryant. He wasn’t about to squander another chance to win his first major championship.

“I said (at the time), hopefully, if I get another chance with a putt like that, I’ll do better,” Haas recalled. “So I kind of had a moment of talking to myself over that last putt, saying, you know, go down like a man here. You’ve been putting well all week and you’ve been putting well for a nice stretch here. Just trust it, keep your head steady, hit the putt.”

Haas did, and the ball curved into the right side of the hole. Minutes later, when Bryant’s own 4-footer refused to fall, Haas had won the — in what was his 90th major championship start.

After all the years of believing in his golf ability and struggling with the results, experienced a day Saturday that put him in position to make it all worthwhile.

The magical reward could come Sunday.

No, the odds aren’t the best that the 32-year-old, who has been to the National eight times, will emerge as Sunday’s winner of the FedEx St. Jude Classic. But what were the chances of him shooting 7-under-par 63 in a bogey-less third round at TPC Southwind?

“It was the best round I’ve ever seen him play,” said his wife Beth, who on Friday decided to cash in some tickets and fly to Memphis from their home in Dallas.

I am always amazed, and amused, when I hear players talking about their

First, what’s perfect? The definition of perfect is stated as, “Lacking nothing essential to the whole; complete of its nature or kind.”

Let’s examine the first part of the defintion - lacking nothing essential to the whole. In golf their are and there are . Each of these come with three parts/pieces.

Essentials have a , , and . Can you play without these, of course. Lots of players move their head up and down, side to side - that’s called bobbing and swaying.

How about balance? Look at Jack Nicklaus in his prime. After every tee shot he would rock back. And how about rhythm - that IS ONE thing you cannot be without and play !

What are Imperatives? These are things that you absolutely MUST have to play effect golf on ANY level.

Imperatives are a , a , and a clubhead “lag” .

The Flat Left Wrist controls clubface alignment and without it you cannot control the the ball.

Without A Straight Plane Line the club is delivered into the ball in glancing blows thereby losing compression.

And what exactly is a clubhead lag Pressure Point? It is the first joint of the right index and it is used to sense and guide the sweetspot of the clubface into the ball.

If a player misses ANY of the Imperatives then they will NEVER be able to control their ball.

The of the will NOT be bigger, longer or any of that other garbage! They WILL however be designed for the TYPE of you are.

For an example, say that you are a that strikes down hard and takes a with . Then you will need a wedge to accomodate that type of play. But, on the other hand, if you don’t take those big deep divots then you’ll need a diferent type of wedge.

So how can these wedges be modified to YOUR type of play? Well, that’s exactly what’s in production now! We can’t give away the process or secret just yet but soon…very soon.
