This year will go down as the year of the pandemic, but in the golf world, it will also be the year of the exhibition. Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods revived their original friendly rivalry this sp…

I wonder how Phil feels again being the second best golfer in the group? Will he ever get to headline one of these? 🙂

Wait, they have 1 from PGA, 1 from NFL and 2 from NBA.  Why are they leaving out the NHL.  Maybe drop 1 NBA for 1 NHL.

Who in the NHL is > either Charles or Steph? Nobody.

It'd be dumb to add an NHL player instead of one of those two.

They can't get people to watch NHL stars when they are playing hockey. How do expect them to get people to watch an NHL star play golf?????

Why not just get a WNBA "star"? It would have about the same amount of draw.

I hear Breanna Stewart of the World Champion Seattle Storm can hit a golf ball almost 300 yards.  And could block every shot the members of this forum might take in a casual half-court game of one-on-one...

I wonder what Barkley's swing looks like nowadays. I guess we shall see. Well, he said he wasn't a role model, lol.

I prefer the original.  Gave my book away to someone and had to get a second copy.  Just about to read that again.

Poor Charles.  I hope they're not playing teams, otherwise Charles would be like the proverbial kid in grade school PE that nobody picks...

Wow, you came a long way for that one. 

Of course, we'd all love to see the original again. I just don't think that's gunna happen. 😜

    • I don’t think I posted on here for this year and goals but I did accomplish a lot this season. My first under par round at -2. My GIR Numbers we’re consistently in double digits. Typically 12-13 per round. I had some long par streaks or better during rounds going 8-10 holes without a bogey several times. My ball striking has reached a level where I feel as though I may look at blades for the first time. My putting has been far more consistent. I have done this by learning to control distance with approach shots. I’ve learned to flight my irons better this year. I’ve utilized the 3/4 punch shot more this season than ever. I’ve dialed in my wedge game. I’ve gotten to the point where I approach greens and hit the correct quadrant and I’m not just happy with on the green anymore. I’ve switched putting grips to the claw for this season and it’s significantly improved putting.    I will set some goals next season but I’m using this as a chance to review the strides I’ve made this season as I’m pretty sure I failed to set goals formally for 2020.    
    • The last round I played we played from one up tee boxes, so like 5,500 yds, relative to par I was about 6-8 shots better than I typically am, but relative to differential it was 3 strokes better than my handicap at the time. But to be fair I also played a nearly mistake free round of golf and holed multiple 10-15 footers which isn't normal for me.
    • For the best chance at a GIR, I would have to say a 6i, maybe a 5i.
    • 4 hybrid.     I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating.  This is what I consider the best way to determine which tees are appropriate when looking at a new course.  Much better than simply looking at overall yardage.  If the tees I’m playing are likely to require more than that on 2 or more holes, I’m probably playing the wrong tees.  For me, that means more than 2 holes over about 415 yards.
    • I have 44 rounds in my stats app, plus I played another ~5 or so of scrambles/alt shot, etc so I'm going to say right around 50, which is definitely an all time high for me. Starting with the most recent (excluding duplicates, * means new courses for me this year) St. Albans GC Turnberry Golf Course Raccoon International Golf Club Westchester Golf Course* New Albany Links Virtues Golf Club* Foxfire Golf Club* Pinnacle Country Club* Deer Ridge Golf Club* Links at Echo Springs Links at Firestone Farms GC* Cumberland Trail Golf Club* Prairie View Golf Club Colonial Golfers Club* Mid South Club Tobacco Road Golf Club* Talamore Golf Course Blacklick Woods Golf Course Moundbuilders Country Club* Darby Creek Golf Course Golf Club of Dublin* Kyber Run Golf Course Tanglewood Golf Course Clover Valley Golf Club Table Rock Golf Club Royal American Golf Links Nearly half of the courses were new to me this year which I didn't realize until making this list. Also kinda funny to see the contrast in quality of courses on this list, I played a couple rounds on $100+ per round courses and a couple rounds on $20-25 courses.
