Hey, Team Titleist.
Have you had a chance to see the video above from our Pro Files series? This is one of my favorite new videos because Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler answer a question I’ve been curious about for years - what do Tour players think about the games of their fellow competitors?
I've always been one to look closely at how other golfers play the game. It's especially fun for me when I play with someone who can hit a shot (or many shots) that I don't have in the bag. I've learned so much from fellow golfers who are kind enough to share their techniques, swing thoughts and different approaches for getting the ball in the hole.
How about you? Are there specific shots or aspects of your friends' games that you admire? Is there a specific shot that the club champion or your favorite tour player hits that you wish you could master? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
Let me kick the conversation off by sharing my latest example:
I was practicing recently with my brother, Greg. As we usually do, we ended the session with a modified H-O-R-S-E contest. We take turns calling a shot to a green on the practice range and seeing who can pull it off better. After each shot, the loser picks up a letter. This day Greg basically ran the table, hitting perfect little low stingers that moved left-to-right as they fell. I could hit it low and straight or high with a fade, but the knockdown fade is not in my repertoire. Not yet. Greg promised to teach me the shot next time out, which will be soon, because I can't wait to add this one to the arsenal.

Phil's flip shot and just his wedge game in general. He’s so creative with his wedge shots around the green and can see and create so many things that most players can’t. Definitely a good player to look up to especially being a fellow lefty
