No difference between the performance of yellow or white. I play Pinnacle Golds. both colors.   In late winter/early spring the sun sets low in the sky and you often get a lot of UV haze.  The yellow ball is easier to pickup, especially off the tee.  With most area fairways utilizing bermuda, they're browned out.  The yellow ball just pops out and is easier to find.   As spring comes around and the courses start greening up, I switch to white.   Then...
The albatros was 50/50 luck and skill.  Aim the ball at the green in a precise area, (which he did perfectly) and then luck took the ball the rest of the way across the green into the hole.   Bubba's shot was pure skill and given the pressure he was under, pretty amazing.  Even Faldo said he'd be lucky to get the ball into a position in front of the green.  Bubba did that one better and then some.
From Yorktowns website   Yorktown Was the First Course Designed by Pete Dye Mr. Dye is considered one of the most influential golf course architects in the world. His design for the Brickyard Crossing golf course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway utilized the dismantled outer retaining wall from the race track. He’s known for designing the “World's Most Terrifying Tee Shot,” aka The Island Green — the 17th hole at The TPC at Sawgrass.
I'll be Playing at Sugar Creek Country Club in High Ridge, MO> Got gifted a membership   http://sugarcreekstl.com/golf/proto/playsugarcreekgc/
I've signed up to play 2 hours next week at my courses new simulator.  I've played around with it a couple times.  Seems like it's better at helping you see what's happening with your swing, as far as speed, how the clubface positioned at impact vs. actually simulating a real golf game.  I'm looking forward to it.
I'll take one.
IMO, the field Jack played up against during his career way outshines the players Tiger has had to compete with.  Heck, Tigers presence in a major tournament had 3/4 or more of the field psyched out before they hit the first tee.   Tiger will definitely need to win more majors than Jack and still, if you could through a time machine pit them against one another,  Jack would still be the guy to win between the two.  He had the mental side way figured out and wouldn't...
I can tell you one thing.  When I was in my late teens/early 20's in the late 70's, early 80's, I was an 8 handicapper.  A couple scratch golfer buddies of mine were pushing me to move to the next level with some lessons.   After putting the game down in 1985 and picking it back up again last year, I can clearly see where I've lost a tremendous amount of flexibility in my joints and body.  Even with todays equipment I'd be pushing it really hard to drive a ball as...
Besides Banderas I'd also suggest this guy     Sergi Lopez.     After Arni,  Seve probably brought as much attention to the game as anybody I can think of.  I know he was a strong presence on the course right when I was in my late teen/early 20's years and definitely caused my interest in the game to increase.  He had a very strong personality and intensity, choosing an actor that can pull that off will be a tough choice.
Long story short.  Cut my index finger badly at work a couple weeks ago so I'm out of action for a few weeks.  Decided to go look for balls at the local muni.   Was waiting for a two some on the tee to hit before I walked across a fairway back to my truck.  A 310 yd par 4, these guys were playing off the back markers.  There was a foursome on the green putting out but these guys were waiting like they might actually drive the green.  (Tour bags, Ping G15, Titleist...
