Reed probably figures he’s got nothing to lose as nobody except Justine likes him anyways. He’s happy to stay with LIV, make a bunch of money and just be villain forever in his career.

Patrick Reed:  Arsonist complains about smoke getting in his eyes during fire he started.

absolutely hilarious that he is asking for that much money,   I hope the defending lawyers dig up Justine’s burner account that shows a level of paranoia and entitlement beyond the abilities of mortal human beings.

Here's probably a new defendant on the Patrick Reed lawsuit.  Guy happens to be spot on, IMO.   Love the take on Reed's lawyer.

But what about Patrick Reed's feelings?   No one is thinking of him and his butt-hurt.

I mean this is why I was so hard on CH3.   Yeah, nice guy and well respected and liked.   But he's leaving behind a life more than 99% of people in the US don't have for more money that is being paid for by people like this.

They could make a movie out of this, give Reed and a few others the main roles and call it “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People 2”.

Another astonishing detail about the Reed lawsuit -- he hired LARRY KLAYMAN as his f***ing attorney! 

What a world!!!!!!!!!!!

I was sent here by the Saudis in 2011 to prepare for this moment.

Wow, never mentioned you, and you don't fit the low number of messages nor the only posting about LIV I mentioned, but by all means wrap yourself with the mantle of victimhood.

It's like a Carly Simon song, simply replacing the word song with post, LOL.

Like who, specifically?

@jshots is not included there.

@GolfSwami, though, yeah. Sure.

He's literally only posted in this topic. And he's likely using an AWS VPN.

Yeah, @GolfSwami is specifically who I had in mind, and I think there were other up thread.  I was OBVIOUSLY not talking about @jshots since he fits neither of the criteria I mentioned.

Not sure how that joke comment is wrapping myself in victimhood but you are the antitrust law expert so I will defer to your authority.

I guess this is the thread to put this in, read a rumor that the PGA Tour might be guaranteeing 500K to exempt players. So if one makes 100K for the year, he gets 400K. Will have to wait for details after meeting is over.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

It's the nature of posting text only, I guess.  Sarcasm, mood, tone, etc don't always come through to the reader like you imagine it when writing.  (I know this very well first hand :))

For the record, I read your "Saudi" post as a tongue-in-cheek joke, so it wasn't a total miss. 🍻

From the article:

“It also says LIV golfers can play anywhere in the world provided it isn't the same week as a LIV Golf event. Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland missed the Irish Open this year because it was the same week as LIV Golf Invitational-Portland.”

wow, that sounds familiar.  If players signed this, which is similar to PGA Tour regulations, then whining about suspensions just went next level.   Not to mention anti-trust concerns.

    • He could earn more than that if he captains a "Japan team" potentially in the LIV series. Them canning all the Japanese players though may say that they've stopped going after Hideki.
    • I played my second round of 18 holes in over six years today. The other time was in November 2018 when I was in severe pain. I shot I think 91 that day? Anyway, it's not a day I want to remember frankly. Today on the other hand, is. I shot an 85 at a course I've never played before despite hitting five balls OB off the tee with driver. We played the white tees which are 69.6, 125. The course is part of PGA National and is named the Estate.  I got up and down over and over and over again all day, at an unsustainable rate frankly. I was getting up and down from really brutal spots too, but that just goes to show how terrible my full swing is. Oh well. I'm trying my best.   I hit a couple drivers before teeing off and here's what I'm packing if anyone was interested in seeing. Like I said, I hit five shots off the tee OB, including from the first tee, which is always fun doing in front of a bunch of strangers who will never see you again.  Anyway, I'm pretty excited I managed to shoot 85 in spite of getting zero favors from my full swing. I was hitting my driver only 220 most of the day. I hit 2 or 3 about 250, but most were around 220. My worst ones went like 200ish. Pretty brutal. All my OB shots were short pushes that flew maybe 200 yards before disappearing into the void forever. Anyway, it's a start. I've done so much rehab, needle work, and exercise these last 4-5 months (and really the last 1.5 years). My body felt pretty amazing out there. Very very little pain. This is a wonderful thing, and I do not take that for granted. I worked so damn hard to get back here. This was golf day no.17 for me since returning June 14th, and I have now played 54 holes total in that span. So I want to remind myself just how little golf I've actually played and that being terrible at the game is pretty much what I should expect at this point. 85 in that light should probably be considered good I guess. On a side note, I think this was my dad's and his friends' first time ever watching somebody play by the rules of golf or something. They were shocked how I refused to mulligan it up with them. I think maybe they learned something about the game from me today in that regard, in a good way.  85 at an unknown course with five OB tee balls. Fingers crossed I can clean that up soon. Otherwise, it really is amazing to be back finally.  Heard this one on the ride home and I think I'll probably always associate this song with today.  Cheers, guys. Thanks for reading. 🙂
    • My goodness, now I understand the comments on my swing back then… oof. Makes me wonder what I’ll say about my swing today in 5yrs.  What I remember was that I was -5 when you conceded. 😉 I’m trying to stay positive. I was definitely bummed on the overall loss.  But it was a great experience! Maybe Bandon Dunes for the next one?!?!
    • Day 22- random iron practice and some block practice with the driver (which is a strength of my game).  Finished with short game practice chips and putts to mimic real play. Great session for me!
    • I can't play alone anymore. I used to,  but now I feel that alone rounds are by definition practice rounds, and I think my practice time is better used on the range, or practice green, etc.  I have lost interest in just  social rounds, with nothing riding on it. Ditto for getting paired up with random folks, no patience for it.  I might feel different if I could treat  round as truly a practice round, and throw out extra balls, or take multiple shots from the bunker, or tricky lies, or short sided lob practice (or whatnot).  Courses are busy these days with little time between groups so practice is not practical. Plus I can't record solo rounds for HCP purposes, so grinding out  great score is moot, or the alternative also, I suppose.  I honestly don't know, do really skilled golfers play solo rounds? Honest question, is that the path to better golf?  If it is, I need to adjust myself so I can do what it takes. I've read that when tour pros play practice rounds, they do it in groups and have $$ riding on it, true?
