No not really.. What is wrong with my opinion? At least I am not ripping on the guys wife.. I just don't tolerate drug use and have no sympathy for drug users.. Is that bad? If it turns out to be something else mental or physical disease or something I hope he recovers soon as I mentioned!

What is wrong with any of those things? Truthfully? What does it matter that they have fake tans? What does it matter they have 'chicken legs'?

Legs spread on a boat. Christ almighty. Ain't nothing wrong with these women. They are allowed to live any way they want as long they aren't hurting anyone.

 

Well said. Ironically, I think Shorty posts those statements for the same reasons that Paulina posts pics on instagram.

It could be anything else and I would wish him well though, until more comes out he seems like a good guy and even someone who is down to earth worth having a coffee with!

I guess I'm waiting to hear more to form a better formed opinion of the guy, not sure any detailed info will ever get out though!

You know that alcoholism is considered a disease right?  And that one of the factors that contributes to alcohol abuse is family history.  Certainly not saying this applies to DJ or not, but regardless, you can certainly exclude me from your "many others" assumption.  (And based on most of the other posts in this thread, I'm guessing I'm not the only one)

As of 7/28/14, Kim is shown as having 16 starts left on his Major Medical Extension, so I expect we will see him back at some point.  http://www.pgatour.com/fantasy/medical-extensions.html

As long as you are happy to apply the same standards to your wife/girlfriend, sister that/s fine.

 

They can do what they like. I, personally, myself, me prefer the real to the fake and I particularly hate narcissism. 

 

Call me old fashioned, but I tend not to be attracted to publicity *****s who feel that unless they're half naked they have no value. And think that posting "sexy" instagram pictures of themselves looking "cute" is cool. Sorry. ;-)

I don't know either personally so I can only comment based on the way the media portrays them.  Seems the last thing a guy with potential substance abuse issues needs is a girlfriend / wife with the same issues.  Paulina doesn't strike me as someone that's ready to give up the party scene just yet.

 

I wish them both the best.  The guy has a lot of talent so I hope he gets mentally healthy so he can compete at the level he should be.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion on DJ! I know that some like to classify alcohol as a disease, and it would be OT for me to get into it..

Maybe someday I'll start a thread on is alcoholism a disease or not though!

Hey.. I said maybe someday I will.. I haven't done so yet... Although I bet that kind of thread would bring people out of the woodworks on both sides of the argument!

Anyway, back on topic.. Guys honestly take it easy on me.. These are just my opinions on DJ and I can't defend them without going off topic.. Are my opinions that controversial all the time? Besides I said the this would be my opinion depending on hearing more facts.. Which I haven't seen any yet and I am looking!

You're good man! I enjoy your posts (whether I agree or disagree). Nothing wrong with a little discussion as long as both sides are reasonable and open-minded. This is totally OT now haha.

 

Regarding DJ...does anyone know how the PGA handles situations where a player needs help with substance abuse/addiction? Seems like they would keep it under wraps in any way possible, trying to uphold this "gentleman's" standard of golf, and also to protect the players' privacy.

 

I recall reading about DJ's back issues a couple of years ago (when I didn't follow golf much)...some comments were insinuating that he was actually in recovery from a crack addiction. Not saying I believe this...just got me thinking.

I only have one expectation for the women in my life, and it's to treat others like they want to be treated.

I do not get in their business about what they do with THEIR bodies. As long as they are kind and good, I don't care.

Well when Matt Every got busted for pot, they just said they suspended him for "conduct unbecoming of a professional", according to Golf Channel's Rex Hoggard.

I'm glad he is taking time to get things right in his life.

Yeah, who the hell cares?

 

Well, as long as it's not my daughter, that is. And as long as guys who prefer that type don't ever come calling on my daughter.

Well, at least it wasn't antler spray

There's a logical conflict in there somewhere, but I don't have the inclination to parse the sentence - I get what you are saying though.
