The golf major will be moved, according to a report.

 

I know that golf was a refuge for Trump, but this year we saw gains in rounds played.  Hard to say how 2021 will proceed, but I don't think golf will decline because of Trump.  Many presidents on both sides have played the sport while in office.  That being said, this issue is a bit different, because Trump directly benefits.  I think moving it is a good idea.  One of our core values is integrity.  We should hold ourselves to that.

Have you seen images of Mr. Trump's golf swing?  It's a somewhat athletic swing for his age.  If you go to the GHIN handicap site and do a "golfer lookup" you will discover that his handicap index is +2.3.

There was a whole book done about his golf cheating.....hes good for his age but his handicap is probably inflated by 8-10 strokes from what I've read.

I would bet after Jan. 20 he will have to putt the five footers.

I've read most of the excerpts from that book but I didn't want to get too political.  So, as I usually do, I followed a moderate path in my discourse.

In Scotland you have to putt them all out.

Why would they move 2022 PGA Championship? 

Not sure what you’re asking. Are you surprised because it’s over a year away?

I am not sure what ugly stuff you are referring to that would require the location of a tournament to be moved. 

I think it absolutely does. 16 months or 16 years is not enough time to forgive and forget.

To most Americans (not all) the Constitution has been defiled by a certain person.  The PGA nor the PTA should support that kind of person... ever.

I don’t believe your 1st statement to be anything more than your opinion. 
 

“You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts. “

You really are living under a rock.  Or under a divot chunk.  

One is entitled to the facts when they are substantiated. 

"A majority of the country believes President Donald Trump should be removed before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20 and two-thirds hold him accountable for the violent insurrection on Capitol Hill, according to a national poll released Sunday."

(Erik, if mentioning names is too political please feel free to remove this post)

I suppose if you were to poll a certain type of person they would say that.

A poll like that would not be substantiated. 

Okay, man. C’mon.

Here’s a fact for you:

4a615bfd-5ab7-411c-8691-ebfd46d4a087-And

Trump will join presidents Andrew Johnson, John Adams and John Quincy Adams in choosing not to attend the inauguration of his successor.

We’re not discussing politics here, but get real. The guy is an asshole. Scum. A joke. He’s done more damage in the last three months to the U.S. on the world stage and internally than many of the worst people managed to do over years.

    • Shifts illegal Pitch clock Bigger bases That about it, right? They're all fine. Though I wish with the shift nonsense that hitters could just "hit it where they ain't."
    • Nabbed a birdie on 8 today, down to 2 left, which of course are 2 of my toughest to birdie.
    • Birdied 18 at Whispering Woods today after: Didn't play the tenth (took a par for GHIN). Missing a 15-footer on 11. Missing a 20-footer on 12. Missing a chip-in on 13 (tap-in par). Missing a 25-footer on 14. Missing a 10-footer on 15. Missing a 10-footer on 16. Missing a 20-footer on 17. (To be fair [or make an excuse] I didn't warmup putt, and the greens were slow because of the heat, so I kept over-reading the break on the putts.) I hit almost every putt just about how I wanted. The putt on 18 was about 20 feet. I drove it through the fairway and the ball was about 18" above my feet. I told my playing partner how weirdly good I am from those types of lies. It was also about 10 yards farther than I typically hit the club I used. Hit it to 20 feet dead online, and he was putting about ten feet behind the hole (he'd already putted out, was just hitting another putt) so I asked him to stop because I wanted to get ONE birdie out of the round. So I'm glad I did.
    • What I'm Working On: Getting the hands down quicker to prevent right wrist from "rolling over" Swing Thoughts: Throwing the hands back behind me to start transition. Feeling as though body transitions toward target while hands start moving down and away I moved away from the feeling of dropping my hands at the transition as that seemed to only make my arms feel even my stuck on the downswing. I read through my Evolvr thread and this one and decided to go back to what my previous swing thought that was more of an active throwing action then just letting my arms drop. I got two range sessions in during this time and things are definitely starting to feel better swing-wise Ball Flight (7i): Now I was getting more pull draws where as before when trying to just drop the hands almost all were slight pulls with a heavy fade. I also chunked a 5 or so shots. I would imagine this was due to now having enough weight on front foot but I notice when I try to get my hands down quicker I am more likely to chunk it.    - This was a pretty big pull draw but doesn't seem like I have quite as much rollover action around impact. Could be wrong though.   Takeaways - When I felt more "connected" in my backswing (feeling of keeping arms in front of chest) my impact seemed to improve drastically but realized this on my last couple swings so haven't tested any further - Overall, my impact and swing as whole FEEL a lot better these last two range sessions so I think I'm on the right track. I even had a couple shots I pured where you can hear the crisp sizzle after impact and the ball just cuts through the air. Which I was yet to feel this year before this - Going to continue working on throwing hands down faster as well as not letting arms travel too much across my chest in the backswing, which should in turn help shorten my backswing a bit
