I've seen this commercial on TV a lot recently. Pretty funny stuff. Good job Nike.

I love this commercial! I used to feel guilty about using a hybrid until I saw this lol. It really does put the whole "golf purist" thing into perspective. Someone may be a purist in relation to a particular generation, depending on what clubs they use (or refuse to use) but unless you are using that mallet thingy at the end of the commerical...lol

I'm still waiting to hear the explanation of " the worlds first high speed cavity back" driver?

The commercials are humorous and the take on materials is funny.....

High speed video is for nerds!

Regular speed video, slow video is mental masturbation.

Video? Photos tell all.

Photos? Words. Photos don't do poetic justice that words do.

Words? Telepathy. Why speak?

Telepathy? Why communicate? It's all in you, innate. Just swing. It's simple.

Funny but true & a shot in the arm to those who believe they are golf purist. Now, where's my anchor putter?

I had a friend of mine out once using his daddy's old persimmons. That starter says "you boys better be spotting him 5 strokes".

My brother was the last holdout that I know of who was still using a persimmon driver. He always hit it pretty long and right down the middle and couldn't get used to metal tchnology. He finally gave in about 5 years ago and is REALLY long now, but he still has a persimmon 5-wood in his bag. While he still refuses to go hybrid, that 5-wood sure looks like one.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
