    I took this when I was in Shanghai a few years back. When the traffic light changes, everyone just keeps going. This wasn't a bad one either.

    Both clearly deserve being captains. BC is not qualified to judge.

    You realize @JonMA1 is being sarcastic. Your advice is ridiculous. Which issue of Golf Digest did you get it from? Please stop posting nonsense in people My Swing threads. There are trying to get help from knowledgeable players and instructors.

  7. boogielicious added a post in a topic Who do you take golf advice from?   

    I did a lot of searching early on. But I settled on Evolvr lessons and posting in My Swing thread. There is a lot of confusing information out there that may be right, but is poorly presented or the pro says one thing but does another. If you just went through one calendar year of Golf Digest, you would find many instances where one article contradicts another. So it is dangerous to your progress to read it without some skepticism.
    There are a few good books out there too.
    He's been playing a long time. Many of us happen to agree with him. I've read all those books and enjoyed them, but most of what the player said they did was actually not the case when other studied their actual swings with video.

  8. boogielicious added a post in a topic Ever wonder how bunkers are made?   

    Mad skills on that backhoe operator!
    Last Tuesday, we played a local favorite course. On the first hole, there was a backhoe in the bunker next to the green. They were rebuilding it. Of course, my approach shot was behind the bunker with the backhoe in the way!

    You are now being off topic in your own thread. There are a bunch of other threads about the grip.

    Depending on your level of fitness, try three times a week. Reps 10 to 20 depending on the weight of the ball..

    I did not stay up, but I'm glad it was close. It will boost the ratings of the next one.  I don't think Day won a single match, correct?

    It's Complicated with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin.  Solid par.  Streep is excellent and Baldwin is great at playing the Ex.

    Maybe they classify it differently. shanty towns are extreme poverty. Favelas are more self contained separate fiefdoms. US inner cities are supposed to be part of the city, community. I could see why they would classify it differently.

    I would cruise the Sun Mountain and Ogio sites and see what they have. I think Mizuno may also have one that has 6 or 7 slots.
