I wouldn't give ball color a second thought.  I play with yellow balls because I can see them in flight better.  I like them and play with good balls,  NXT tour S.  Other than visibility I can't tell the difference between the white ones and yellow ones.
I thought it was great; Rory throwing his 3I into the lake.  There's hope for the lad yet. Shows he has some fire in his belly.  I suppose you can overdo this sort of thing but I like to see that these guys are playing to win and not just be another one of the millionaires who consistently places in the top 20 or so but never wins and doesn't seem to much mind not winning.    But if you overdo it the other way, never demonstrate emotion on the course,  you get Inbee Park....
You're correct.  Today's superior players are just too polished. You don't ever hear a "bad" word or see anyone slam a club on the ground or berate an official.  Regardless of their skill level they are just sort of bland most of the time in interviews and on the course,  e.g. they are uninteresting outside of the fact "these guys are really good".  To be a big star you need to be a 'personality" too.  My 2 ¢.  
I am older but you should mention John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors too.  One thing all of those players had was they were great at tennis and had personalities that stirred interest.  Like Tiger the discussion wasn't always about tennis but it did keep the interest in the sport up.  Your point is well taken however that Tiger revitalized golf as something young Americans wanted to do.  I would suspect he also stirred the interest of Europe and the world youth.   Not sure...
That's great!  Thanks for taking the time to post this.
Well I don't doubt that golf is becoming less popular, but right now, around here, just try getting a tee time at one of the many decent courses.  It is crowded this time of year and expensive.     As to equipment sales, I don't often purchase a new set of irons, maybe every 5-6 years and I always look at the used clubs first.  Same for driver, putter, hybrids, and fairway woods.  Maybe if I was a scratch golfer I would become a believer in new equipment will help.  At...
I have a set of Lynx Black Cats from when Lynx was Lynx and not GolfSmith.  I play with them about once every couple of months.  Not sure why I guess just because I like them.
Turns out I got it correct.  A bullet isn't designed to penetrate (except for those designed as armor penetration bullets).  Unlike an arrow that is designed to penetrate, a bullet is designed flatten or even break up  or even begin tumble on impact to cause damage.  
Not to belabor the point but it is much like my ancestors that left Europe and knew they would never go "home" again perhaps for different reason but sill they were stuck here having left everything they knew and loved.  Just think, if we go to Mars we could turn the place into an Earth like planet in few hundred years.  I guess the other thing is we would learn so much trying to figure out how to do this without killing any the the knowledge gained  would most certainly...
Well as  young man I was one of the many engineers that designed and developed the Mars Viking project hardware, a lander and orbiter, a significant achievement for its time. So I believe I do understand Mars to some extent.  I think what is wrong with the country today  (this is not intended to be political) is we need a national goal to unite us.  So why don't we colonize Mars just like early American colonized the frontier?  I can remember when JFK said "in ten years we...
