That's great, and it works through the Google Earth platform too. Another interesting way to view the Old Course is playing it online at www.wgt.com. The graphics for the courses are pretty good definition, and the course modeling seems really accurate, with all of the little hollows and humps.
I never said it has no psychological effect. Of course you are going to feel better towards that person. I said it's sleazy to only offer extra special attention or instructions after receiving a tip. If you are an instructor and get a tip, that is great. Take the extra dough and buy a coke. Don't take the mindset that you owe that person more than the prior guy because he didn't throw a $10 bill your away. That is sleazy and cheap behavior. Both if the tipper expects more lessons and if the instructor gives them. When I tip somebody, I do not expect more/better service. That is the definition of a bribe. I tip people based on their prior work ethic/service and do not expect anything more after I tip them. Bribe: persuade (someone) to act in one's favor, typically illegally or dishonestly, by a gift of money or other inducement. People here are advocating for bribes to instructors.
A good instructor is going to give great instruction to everyone he meets with, a tip showing your appreciation for that always helps. If you don't think it changes the way you feel about someone psychologically, you're wrong. It affects everything, but like I said, it's never expected from anyone. You are not doing the lesson for the tip.
I think we should all just celebrate seeing the two top players in the world square off against each other. I am rooting for the US side and I wouldn't care whatsoever who won. I just want to see that match. We never got to see the Scott v. Woods match up, or Rory v. Woods type battles. I think we as a golf community would all benefit from seeing the two top players in the world battle it out. I think the captains of both teams should recognize that and make it happen!
