That one. And that guy can be Tiger. 😉

Or Bryson. That'd be hilarious. Except maybe the rollback people would feed off that.

You know, immediately after I posted my previous post I started thinking I may have gotten it wrong, primarily because of the O-Value. I'll revisit that in a bit, though… Not that much lower.

Definitely hole out from the fairway twice a year for the rest of my life. An eagle on a par four is -2. A hole in one is -2. Two awesome shots/year would be something to look forward to forever.😃

I’ve done both in a day....but they sold nachos at the Putt-Putt so that helped.

Tough one. If not Tiger the B would be interesting. Both are very improbable.

That would be hilarious. But you are right about the damned roll back people.

I am going with "next 16 majors won by a first time major champion".  My thinking is that would imply a very strong competitive field and many up-and-coming greats.  I doubt either will happen,  We have many strong competitors will would make winning 10 of 16 very difficult but at the same time make it very probable that some winners would be repeat winners.

Between these 2 choices, I'd like to see the same guy win 10 of the next 16.  What Tiger did early in his career was so incredible, and i'd be fun to go on another ride like that.  Have another generation get to experience something like that.

 

However, what I'd actually like to see is the winners come from the same same 6 to 8 golfers who are all in contention for each of the next 16 majors.  Doesn't matter if the same guy wins all of them, but to see the rivalries build over the course of several years at the most important tournaments would be ideal.

16 different guys win.  No repeats.  Don't really know why.  And it's not going to play out that way.  A question for the crowd--has the Tour ever gone 4 full years with nobody winning a major twice?

I don’t think so. It would require some research. But the only stretch I can think of is 1984-87 maybe? 1984: Crenshaw, Zoeller, Ballesteros, Trevino 1985: Langer, North, Lyle, Green 1986: Nicklaus, Floyd, Norman, Tway 1987: Mize, Simpson, Faldo, Nelson. You can’t stretch it back to 1983, because Ballesteros won the Masters and Nelson the U. S. Open. But Watson at the Open and Sutton at The PGA are different. So that’s 18 in a row. There was a stretch from when Tiger won the 2002 U.S. Open until he won the Masters of all different major champions, Els, Beem, Weir, Furyk, Curtis, Micheel, Mickelson, Goosen, Hamilton, Singh.

But I think 18 in a row might be the most.

I'd go for the latter, when Tiger was dominating in a similar fashion I started rooting against him and I don't care for rooting against anyone.

WOULD YOU RATHER #33:

For this question pretend you are playing a course on which for what ever reason you have to take a cart. The question is simple and non-controversial.  

Would you rather drive the cart?

OR

Would you rather be a passenger in the cart?

easy - ride; I'd rather relax and enjoy the scenery rather than have something else to deal with. Besides, as someone here can attest to (@billchao), I've nearly gotten lost driving one time on a poorly marked area of a course with the cart path running through a neighborhood or something 🙄

I'd rather ride, given i trust the driver knows how to handle himself or herself in a cart on the course, etiquette and such.

If I don't trust the person, I'd rather drive.

I'd rather drive.  I want nobody else steering that puppy than me when we're going down the super-steep and dangerous cart paths of Shuksan Golf Course.  Those that live in this area will know what I mean.  I have recurring nightmares of dying on the wet, curvy, moss-slick cart path down to #1 fairway.

I'd rather be the passenger since I do like to walk up to the green and such on occasion.

If I want to get out and run or walk up the fairway the other guy knows to slide over and drive the cart.  Otherwise that squat little vehicle just sits there...

I prefer to drive, with the understanding that there are times when its best for me to walk and let the other player drive.

I'd rather drive, just because I like putting the cart/my bag quite close to my golf ball and when others drive they usually park much further away. It's honestly good etiquette that people do this, I just like having everything right next to my ball so I can range, grab a club, and be in position already for the start of my routine without any extra walking.

Usually my cart or bag is only around 3 feet away from the ball, on the right hand side. You can actually see the shadow of the golf cart in my profile picture from the Newport Cup, just barely cropped out. Here's the original showing where I like to park a cart, give or take a foot closer or further. When walking I just stand next to the ball and set the bag down, so it ends up closer than that.

I prefer to drive, and most of my playing partners prefer to ride so it works out. When I'm driving I'm not going to be on my phone and am less likely to have my thoughts wander and I find it easier for me to stay focused on my next shot. I'm sure if I actually kept track there is probably no difference in my actual score whether I'm driving or riding, just my personal preference.

Passenger. That way I feel like I have a chauffeur.

All things being equal, I'd want to be the passenger, so that's my answer.  However, some people got no clue what they are doing driving a cart. They cause pace of play issues, park the cart in funny spots, try to sit in the cart every moment they aren't actually hitting their ball and generally drive me insane. I can think of a couple of guys where I insist on driving.

    • Thanks Boogielicious. I'm going to try that out asap!
    • Thanks for the tip, I didn’t realise it would come back on so quickly. Only used around 3% overnight, normally 25/30 % Its 5pm here, Ive used 30% battery today and that’s with the golf app using gps on a four hour round.

    • Great topic! My Goals for 2021: GOALS Single digit Index (Currently 11.6) More birdies that "others" (blow up holes are my Achilles heal) GIR: 40%+  FIR: 55%+ (currently 48% and I'm generous in what I consider a fairway hit) Scrambling 25%+ Play a lot of golf! ACTIONS Track hole by hole stats on every round Focus on swinging "within" myself - tempo and control - I get too aggressive and leads to problems Mental toughness - nicer to myself after screw ups  Getting my hips through (swing thought is hitting the ball with my right hip) Proper fitting and gear upgrade as makes sense Reread Lowest Score Wins! - embrace the wisdom for smarter golf Consistent fade with driver - Currently a 2-way miss is giving me fits Lock in on my putting set up Develop a more consistent golf fitness plan
