No, he should not get in. He knew the rule: gambling = automatic lifetime ban. And he knew the reason for the rule: baseball was almost destroyed as a professional sport at one time due to gambling.   "He bet on his own team, so it's alright." No it's not. What if, by betting on his own team, he falls into deep debt to gambling interests. Are they going to say "don't worry Pete, pay us when you can"? Hardly. They're going to get their money one way or the other. The...
1) The splurge factor   It's the same reason guys buy expensive beers when they would be just as happy drinking a Bud. It's an inexpensive way to treat themselves to something special.   The average player may not be able to justify spending a grand on the latest & greatest clubs, but he can justify a small splurge on golf balls.   2) Too many options   Callaway currently offers 21 different golf balls by my count on their website. TM is not much better. Even...
I recently saw a youtube of someone opening a piece of carry-on luggage, and a woman climbed out. Does that mean it's possible for everyone to bend themselves into enough of a pretzel to fit into a piece of luggage? No, she obviously has unique combination of body build and freakish flexibility.   If Austin's swing could have been reduced to to a set of rules and reproduced consistently, then by now it would have been. But, it hasn't. That leads me to the conclusion that...
6.6 is not abnormal, but it is unusual. According to this chart: http://www.allcountries.org/uscensus/230_cumulative_percent_distribution_of_population_by.html .  80% males are UNDER 6 ft tall.12% are 6-1 or taller.7% are 6-2 or taller.4% are 6-3 or taller.2% are 6-4 or taller. I once read a study that said when men go over 6-5 in height, the social advantages of being tall reverse and height starts to become a disadvantage. As far as golf goes, the few advantages (being...
I'm sure that is why the OP's comments contained this line: Take a few minutes to look around at any driving range, and you'll see plenty of people (probably the majority) that allow their left arms to bend 30, 45, or even 90 degrees on the backswing. These are probably the poor souls the OP was referring to. The last thing they need in their head is a swing thought that says "don't keep you arm too straight." That's just going to reinforce their excessive arm bending.
POW(der)!
Interesting. Cheap, if nothing else.
When it comes to drivers, volume is not the same as size. The Cleveland Hibore driver has a face are that is approx. 19% larger than a standard driver. How did that make a driver that head that has a wider and taller face without making the depth (from face to back) shorter? The made the top of the head concave. Larger driver, same volume. Yea, the 460cc limit was supposed to limit size, but as you can see with the Cleveland Hibore the size are volume are not always...
Well, the point I was trying to make is you can have a one 460cc head that is "bigger" in the dimensions that count (height,width, and depth) than another simply by monkeying with the design (like caving in the top, as one person noted). That means we can already skirt the 460cc limit and make "bigger size" heads (height, width, and depth). I'm glad it was obviously clear to you, but I wasn't so sure it was obviously clear to everyone (that's why I explained it). The...
I'll have to go look it up, but I beleive that is what it says in the Wishon book. The reasoning was sound. Wishon did not seem to be a big fan of making driver heads too big. OK, my memory is starting to come back a little. Think of an ice skater that is spinning in the middle of the rink. When they have their arms stretched out they spin slow, but if they pull their arms close to their body they spin more quickly. The point is that when most of the mass is near the...
