#103 - Are game warmups meaningful?

Posted on August 1, 2005 at 08:53:10 AM by Tiger

You don't see much of what I'd call 'practice shots', although, every so often, you might see a guy try 3 or 4 of the same shot. Mostly, they just seem to be getting loose - getting the feel of how the ball is moving today. But, is there more?

I had a friend who was convinced that the biggest loafer (or most disinterested) during the warmup was going to be the winner. He didn't say that in a way to suggest the outcome was prearranged, only that the 'loafer' might be conserving his energy or, like Brer Fox, just "layin' low".
