I didn't play today but was at the driving range for about 45 minutes. It was very hot standing in the direct sunshine. My car temperature stated 96º. It would not have been to hot to ride in a cart out of the direct sunshine. I would not have attempted walking and playing.
Maybe Bryson really is what happens when a nerd optimizes for golf. If so, good for him. And when I feel it's safe for me to get back to the gym, now I really need to. I was making good progress the first ten weeks of the year.
For some reason, some people think golf should be harder than it already is. There was a stigma at some point about people who aren't playing blades. Now we have Kevin Na saying he isn't good enough to play blades. We also have one manufacturer making game improvement blades!
Similar with long irons versus fairway woods. Some people laughed at Raymond Floyd for showing up to Augusta with a 5-wood instead of his 2-iron. He had the last laugh that year.
We also have a few guys on tour playing graphite shafted irons, or nearly. I think Matt Kuchar used them at one point.
The nice thing about Game Golf is the ability to adjust the round on your computer after you finish. Some times I tag the shot a couple times because I wasn't sure if I did it the first time. Easy to correct on your computer.
