I think I did this once, well maybe more than once. That's why I quit talking to the ball, it listened to me. 
I personally enjoy watching the LPGA when I have the time.  I can relate to their games better than the PGA guys who "are really good".  It would be a good thing for golf if the LPGA could become more visible to the golfing public, IMO
I don't agree.  I think Brandel talks a lot about Tiger because he is of interest to the readers/viewers and Brandel is paid for being interesting and even provocative at times.   37 pages on this forum about the article will attest to the fact that Tiger draws a lot interest.  Does anyone out there think we would get 37 pages if it was the golfer who was involved was 100th on the money list?  I doubt that even if it was another well know golfer it would have garnered this...
In the Summer not later than an hour after dawn.  In the winter anytime if fine but prefer mornings.
I don't talk to my ball except maybe, at times, when it begins to fade.  You know you can talk to a fade, but draws are as waste of breath (yes I know Lee T. said this first but I like it).   Anyway I don't really ever talk to my ball but sometimes my ball has me talking to myself.
Me 2.
Here is what I believe a shame about Brandel's article.  I have said several times he was over the line with the implication that Tiger may have cheated.  But the shame is in what Brandel's  son told him and in that we are discussing Brandel and not discussing whether Tiger was "caviler with the rules" or not.  So Brandel's article was a failure in achieving what he wanted and so I give Brandel an F.  But having said that, I still don't understand why Tiger didn't call a...
I don't think Golf.com or Golf Channel will publicly chastise Brandel Chamblee for the article.  They might make a statement indicating that the article expresses the opinion of Chamblee and are not necessarily the organization's opinion.  They can hardly permit Tiger to influence the unfiltered opinion their editorial/annalists staff.  If they did that they would lose a lot of viewers.  We should all be thankful that organizations allow their annalists to express their...
I didn't read all the post so if I'm repeating something from earlier I apologize.  But once upon a time I accepted my Pros challenge and play a round with the longest club in my bag being a 5 I (about 185 yard for me).  My final score was within 2 strokes of my average (basically the same in other words) and as a result I was convinced that the short game was my problem as the Pro had been telling me.  Not sure it would come out the same for everyone but try it and see if...
I think it is a reasonable question and some professions do have rules about your conduct even off the job if it brings discredit on the organization.  I don't know if the PGA does or not and if it does what the rules are.  I also don't know if Golf Channel has such rules either as the conduct (the article) was produced for Golf.com and Golf.com apparently let the article be published over the objections of their editors.  But you would have to believe that any article...
