  1. Objections to Derek Ernst thanking God after his win?

    I think it's awesome that Jesus chose to help Derek Ernst win a golf tournament rather than stopping untold numbers of drunk rednecks from raping their own children. What I can't figure out is why Jesus has allowed that buddhist Tiger Woods to win so many times. WTF?
  2. Just ordered. Looking forward to getting started and getting consistent.
  3. Technically, any final stroke that results in the ball being in the hole, is a "hole-out". My point was that is surprises me that people were calling it a "chip-in" because it most certainly was not a chip by any definition. Definition: The term "hole out" can be used as a noun or a verb: Noun: A "hole out" is a shot that results in the ball winding up in the hole. As such, every last stroke on a given golf hole is a "hole out," since your play of a hole isn't over until the ball rests in the cup . But the way "hole out" is most often used as a noun is to refer to shots the unexpectedly result in the ball finding the cup; a shot from the fairway , for example, or a blast out of bunker .
  4. Certainly looks like a hole-out to me. What it doesn't look like is a chip of any sort :-)
  5. Why is everyone calling this a chip-in? That's not a chip shot.
  6. Bandon Dunes Golf Trip

    Bandon Dunes is the most scenic and least punishing, that's what they will tell you in the pro shop if you ask. Weather is a crap shoot on the southern oregon coast in the winter. We went mid January last year and got lucky, windless, dry and 58 degrees. Also, we could have walked on that day. The course was NOT crowded.
  7. What are you listening to?

    This, plus new Blitzen Trapper, and new New Pornographers. Not sure what I think of "Infinite Arms", but the other 3 are FANTASTIC.
  8. This wasn't directed at you, Gilles - but including your thread we have all these just on the first few pages in off-topic. All should have been posted in Golf Talk IMHO Just sayin'... golf clubs from US to Europe Practice Diary Soon to be new HS golf coach, please help!!

  9. this is an "off topic" forum. Why all the golf topics? This is such a tightly moderated board in almost every other aspect, this just surprises me I guess. If the topic is at all related to golf, it belongs in Golf Talk, no?
  10. Portland suggestions?

    Even though I'm an hour plus south of PDX, I can back up Blades on the year-round golfing in the PNW. Sure there are some days where it's pouring and depending on the course, drainage can be a problem, but we don't let that stop us
  11. Bandon question

    Weekday, this time of year, probably not too difficult. I went on MLK Day in Jan, and despite the fact it ended up being a GORGEOUS day, it was not crowded at all.
  12. Movies on iphone/iPod

    I watch movies on my iPhone when I'm traveling - either flying, or my wife is driving. Otherwise, no. My kids do quite often, though.
  13. One club tourney

    I've done this for the past couple years with a group of buddies. It benefits the local Boys & Girls club and is a lot of fun. The format is fivesomes: better ball. The first time I chose 5 wood and did pretty well. I had length off the tee, and I was able to chip and putt remarkably well with it. The second time, I went with a 3 hybrid and that wasn't so good for some reason... I'm thinking a 6 iron this time. I'll give up some distance off the tee, but will have more loft for shots closer to the green. I'll practice putting with it for the next few weeks. Any of you done this format? What club did you choose? What was your strategy? 7 iron seems a popular choice in past years.
  14. Ramblings of a cold Hawaiian

    Like you don't have Golf 365 in Westwood, CA???? I'm up here in Oregon and I don't let the changing seasons keep me off the course
  15. Way to step up Massachusetts

    While it may be true that in general, the younger generation is more liberal than the older, what the study shows is that it is not true that people tend to get more conservative as they age. It's the other way around.
