Agreed, hope we will see more of this type of event.

The audio is horrible, but if you turn it up, a chipping lesson from Phil might be worth it.

I was enjoying it this morning. I was until my DVR stopped at the 18th tee. 😡

Oh man! You missed the double eagle!  When I record any sporting event on my DVR that can go beyond its normal time I always record the dog show and the vegematic show that comes on after it, just in case.

I enjoyed this as well, but thought they had the QB's playing from a farther distance then they should be.  I think they said they were around 6800 yards, which seemed pretty long for their skills.

Well for the front nine Brady could’ve been playing at 5000yds and still porked it all up.😀

Didn’t get to watch it but watched the highlights and the outtakes and it was great. Payton roasting Brady multiple times even during warmups was awesome. Being an Eagles fan made it even better 🙂

When Brady hit a bad shot (many) there was a language coming out of his mouth I've never used.  "Gawd-dang-it."  That pansy approach just doesn't work when I hit a bad shot.  I've got to burn some ears to get back on track...

I think the sport would benefit from more one off events like this.

I would say I did not need the 1 club challenge hole and it might be my only true dislike of the event.

The 1 Club Challenge made us think how we'd handle that.  Otherwise it was lame.  What they should do is have a long distance club throwing challenge.

I'm gonna go against the grain on this one and say it was a snoozer for me. Part of that is probably because I am not a football fan in the slightest, and couldn't care less about 2 QBs playing golf. Between that, the rain, and the awkward shots from inside of the carts where it was literally just a camera on a guy driving a golf cart (no interaction going on), I thought it was kind of a junk event. I know they can't control the rain, and I was happy that all that money was raised, but it wasn't really an enjoyable watch for me.

I think Phil did a really good job of narrating his internal monologue in the driving shots that I saw of him. If I learned anything from watching years of reality TV, it’s that people need to talk to the cameras as if they’re talking directly to the audience.

I liked when Brady's microphone radio transmitter came off.  At first I thought it was his divot.  And I liked when he was looking svelte, ripping his pants, and then looking pudgy in his rain pants.

I think we're seeing a couple vanity handicaps today.

Even though it looks that way, but with all that pressure, I won't be surprised if they are not performing as well as they would otherwise.

I am waaayyy too familiar with not playing anywhere near to my handicap.

Consider how your HI is arrived at. From the courses you routinely play. And even though Peyton Manning is a member of Augusta National, I don't know how often he gets to play it. The thing about the handicap "index" is, I thought it could be adjusted upward or downward depending on the difficulty of the course you are playing that day. But I wonder. Like at the Pebble Beach pro-am they routinely announce some obscure entertainers handicap as " a 5.2 at his home course, Dead Mules CC in Loose Gravel, Iowa." 

Also, many years ago I read an article about the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla. Before opening the course for play, Greg Norman invited a bunch of buds, including Jack Nicklaus, to play it and provide feedback. After the round, when asked about his assessment of the course, he said that the fairways were far too tight, the forced carries over water and swamp were far too long, and the rough way too penal for a resort course! And one thing Nicklaus said was so vivid that it kind of burned itself into my brain. He said that he was a highly skilled long iron player, but he still had problems getting a ball to hold on the hood of a car! 

Greg wound up with more work to do!

    • Day 124 - Range work again today with focus on set up and alignment. Grass range this time. Travel day so not enough time to play. 
    • It's been a while, but I had my first no sixes round in quite sometime.  A few years back, it was a daily occurrence, but first one in a long time.  Hopefully I'm on te way back to play better.   5 5 5 3 4 5 4 5 5 - 41    4 3 4 3 5 4 5 4 4 - 36 - 77  Started on the back 9 with a 36, played last 4 holes, 4 over.   
    • The surcharge for small businesses is a real thing. A credit card company will charge a business between 1 and 5% for handling the money for them. This affects small businesses more than big businesses for at least 2 reasons.   Firstly, big business can sometimes negotiate that rate down really low. Sometimes they can even partner with a card and get the rate removed all together (See Costco's partnership with Citi Visa).  Secondly, Big businesses sometimes handle so much cash, that it's very literally a cost savings for them to having the CC company handle the money stream. Where as small business think of sending Judy over to the bank once a week as a non-expense. Even if it really is an expense, often its left off the budget sheets, so cash is seen as "free" to use.  Lastly, sometimes small businesses can fudge their tax numbers by accepting cash. Technically its illegal, but that doesn't make it uncommon. You'll see this a lot with contract work. The person may say something like "Pay me in cash, I'll give you a 10% discount." There are certainly legal and legit reasons to want your customers to pay cash. But sometimes its because they can fudge their tax numbers. 
    • Coin shortage is a real thing.  Lots of people aren't paying cash at all (which leaves their coins out of circulation) while even among those who pay cash, carrying the coins around has stopped being a thing (even pre-Covid).  I used to really like it when the bill was $4.26 and I'd pay with $5.01 to get quarters back instead of 74 cents.  I rarely pay cash these days though. L.A. City courses went to a surcharge for paying by CC a year or so ago, and kept the surcharge when they reopened for Covid but also prohibited non-CC payments!  I wonder if that's allowed by the CC agreement, but I'm not sure I want to push the issue and take the risk. 
    • Thanks.  I really enjoy it too, and have a win and a T3 in my club's match play (but I haven't so much as won a match in recent years;  the win was 2015 and the T3 was 2014).   A,C,E, and F are things I really need to remember.  D I was good about at some point, and I'll re-read the differences before Sunday's match.  For B, not only are we playing a match, but our foursome is filled out with another match, so that should be great for pace.   Thanks!  I do have to remember that, especially with opponent's shots.  In thinking back to recent years, I did get out of my game for a while, whereas the year I won, I don't think I hit into any bunkers in any round (which meant aiming away from flags, I think that was early in the #DeadCenter era).  Unfortunately I didn't have a GG then so I don't have a record.  I'm giving strokes, but on 5 of the 6 holes where I'll be doing so, they're long holes and my opponent is a short hitter.  Still, I think going for par will help, not trying to force anything.  A bogey will be a good score for him on those holes, and I need to remember that.
