One day in 2009, LG and I spent a few hours watching a PGA tournament before heading out to the course for twilight tee times. We sat, discussed some aspect of the game and made comments about what we were seeing. As we did, we couldn’t help but notice that our commentary outpaced the TV “analysts,” as our observations were at least a few minutes ahead of everything they said. We decided to try providing our own commentary in an attempt to see how far ahead of the TV announcers we could get. We pointed out how Tom Watson’s wedge was severely open; we even called Miguel Angel Jimenez “the most interesting man in the world” before Jason Sobel adopted that name for him. This pushed us to wonder…if these people are “professionals” at this industry, could we do the same? Could we be better?

The Power Fade evolved as an experiment following this experience. Rather than just speculating, we decided to try our hand at putting together information. Certainly, neither LG nor I believe we are exceptional at this–or anything golf-related. But we hoped to provide our readers with some information that, perhaps, the mainstream has left off. We hope to give our readers a golf experience that shows some new perspective, exposes our readers to new opinions and options, and provides our readers with information they can use in their golfing careers.

Certainly, not everything here will be correct, accurate, or precise. We apologize for our errors, as we both have full-time careers and cannot focus our attention on every detail of this. However, LG and I love the game of golf and will do our best to share any of the small bit of things we know with the others who, just like us, are taken with this game.
