Matt Every Suspended Three Months for Marijuana


Recommended Posts

On Wednesday at the Zozo Championship, Tour commissioner Jay Monahan was asked about the policy.

“Ultimately, we don't determine what is a banned substance and what's not, we rely on WADA for doing that,” Monahan said. “We'll continue to stay very close not only to that substance but any potential substance that would come on or come off the list.”

I used to smoke pot recreationally and I used to also drink recreationally. I never needed a "fix' of pot, but i certainly needed my drink at the end of the work day. Then sometimes another, and anoth

A pothead is just someone who does a bunch of pot.

Nope, couldn't care less about reefer madness.

I knew a section PGA pro who could barley break 80 sober but you give him a bowl or two and he'd go out and shoot 65. He would have won 20 majors if the PGA Tour let players blaze. 😂

OT (but I can’t resist)

Spoiler

Ergo scotch whisky, and not other forms of whiskey. ;-)

It's a derogatory term usually used by someone who has a disdain for those who smoke pot.  You know that.

Which is why I said that employers should be able to fire potheads.

You've failed completely to provide any real arguments here, instead trying to rely on stuff like this. Yep, I know that calling someone a "pothead" is derogatory. I tend to write what I mean.

Is sure is.  I know "potheads" they let it affect their regular life in negative ways, they are slow, they don't work well.  They should not have protection from being fired for cause.  Pot is a main cause or correlated symptom.

I also know users that handle the substance without any issues.  I don't call them potheads.  I have no reason to think of them individually in a derogatory fashion.

 

Disdain is reserved for individuals that demonstrate they deserve it.  Not broad demographics of people

Bingo.

I've had friends that smoke pot 3-4 times a week and are perfectly functioning adults. I've also had friends or known "potheads" who are not.

I said only that businesses should be able to fire "potheads." I didn't say they should be able to fire anyone for smoking pot, ever.

You're reading your own biases into what people have to say, @Zekez.

Businesses should fire anyone who doesn't perform up to standards, regardless of why.   Your biases shine through too .

Arguments about what?  I maintain that smoking pot is not a real serious health or life altering issue.  Again, YMMV.

Just because you provided a few real life instances of a weed smoker experiencing some bad life events means little in this conversation.

It's not a bias, it's a rational opinion that's not the least bit unfair.

Potheads underperform.

Except that it is, and your only refutation of this was basically your opinion of your life experiences.

It directly contradicts your earlier statements.


Regardless, and once again, the topic of the conversation is about Matt Every, not pot smoking in general.

Back to the actual topic.

Noooooooooooooo

I don't drink anymore, but putting water or ice in scotch is an abomination. Save up for good scotch and learn to enjoy the pure unadulterated flavor without diluting it or freezing your taste buds.

I drink very good scotch and have tried it neat but unless I am nursing a cold or the flu I much prefer ice.  I suppose it is the way I started drinking it in my 30's and it is what I enjoy.  I know, I cringe when my grandkids put ketchup on hot dogs but they like it.

I used to think that - and that it's a 'purity' thing.  But no - I was eventually forced to admit that it was a beginner thing.  I was confusing the need for water to take down a harsh bite from cheap stuff.  But for good stuff, that's just wrong - they aren't harsh, so it's all about the experience.

The better the scotch, the more variety you get from contrasting adding water vs drinking neat can create very distinct flavors and nose and everything.  Some of them are so complex that the amount of water has definite impacts on the experience.  Golf forum - think of it as going to a top notch golf course and playing from different tees to experience the course in totally different ways.....  You don't always force the tips just because.

For anyone that wants to try, I've found a couple (some from Ardbeg are great examples and their website actually walks you through it) of the very peaty/smokey types where you can play around all day with constrasting neat vs water, etc from a single bottle and it's like a tasting from a half dozen bottles.....the water determines which of the flavors get emphasized.  It was an eye opener.

 

I'd say that if you save up for the good stuff, then the water is important to understand.  If you just want to hammer it straight, get the cheap stuff as it doesn't matter other than to bring down the harshness....

I just wish worldwide that the sporting orgs would get a bit more modern on this issue. I much prefer the NHLs/CFLs and now MLBs stance on hot caring about players using THC and 2 of those are Olympic sports

    • I've had between a half dozen and a dozen rounds at my home course this year;  part of that is I moved an hour away in 2019 and hadn't really explored the area.  I'll probably maintain club membership there because I like the group, and I'll look for one around my new home too. I say that because in those 6+ rounds, I've yet to par holes 7, 9, or 12;  I have yet to make a birdie at the course either.  Best-ball score at the course so far in 2021:  74. Earlier today, I played my third round at a course that might become my new home course, or at least my most commonly played course starting soon.  It's the second-closest (not including super expensive or private courses) to my house, an easy drive, and well within my price range.  After three rounds, I have a composite score there of 74, with two birdies in there. On one hand, the new course is easier (lower CR/SR) and a bit shorter, but on the other hand, that's interesting.
    • No new birdies tonight however closed out my league 9 with back to back birdies at 8 and 9. Lipped out the birdie at 7 I thought was in. Didn’t hit a GIR until 7.... took advantage of them tho. Took me a bit to get going after 2 weeks away from golf.
    • That's not a good plan, IMO. Where's your Member Swing topic? I don't see one.
    • Missed my league night on vacation in Virginia Beach last week. Hadn’t played in 2 weeks. Decided to go early and do extra short game work prior to my tee time. I expected to be a little bit off and need my short game. It paid off. I didn’t hit the ball well at all but managed to post a solid score. Right out of the gate I pulled a 9 iron left at 1. Ball on heavy rough, with a green sloping away. Chipped to one foot to save par. Bogey at 2 missed a short save. At 3 I got up and down again. Caught a flyer at 4 and missed a little deep. Made bogey. Up and down at 5. Bogey at 6. Then got hot. Stuck a wedge to 8 feet at 7 and lipped out the putt. Wedge to 6 feet at 8 made birdie. Stuck another wedge to 5 feet at 9 for birdie. Closing birdie birdie got me to +1 for the side. -2 net. Not bad considering I only hit 3 greens in regulation. 13 putts for the side is good for the score card.
    • Just an aside.  Bumped into an old friend on the practice green on Saturday.  Told him I was playing at 9:20 on Monday and that he was welcome to join me.  I let him know I'd be using a power cart because of a torn meniscus. Overnight I start thinking about the guy... a conspiracy theorist, crypto currency guy, etc., etc.  Though he did sell Mercedes' at a dealership once.  How mainstream is that? He shows up Monday morning.  I hop in the cart, clubs strapped in.  In short order Jeff straps on his clubs and hops in.  I say, "Jeff, gotta ask you a difficult and potentially rude question... are you vaccinated?"  "Hell no!"  So I told him I'd pay for a 2nd cart for him.  He was good with that and understood.  Great round... had a lot of fun.  But at 6 feet.
