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.

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

I am surprised by the mention of moving the 2022 PGA Championship. 

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 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.

    • Yes, that is true... NOW. Previous to the renovation for that first Open. If you were 5 yards off the fairway you weren't going to FIND your ball, much less play it. You had 1st cut of 2-3 inches, second cut was 4-6", then it was thick fescue pretty much to the tree line. And that was 2-3 FEET high by the middle of summer. They got rid of most of it or thinned it back for spectator access. You can't have 50,000 people wandering around in a tick infested nightmare for a week. The ONLY place I believe they left it was between 10 and 11 where spectators couldn't get to. Now, the further off the fairway you are, the better.  The hill right of the 8th Green was essentially a forest of fescue- no using the slope to come back down to the green. they cleaned that all out for seating as well. Now- a ball can run back down to the greenside area- if you miss the tree. they also took away a LOT of trees- especially in that triangle area between 1,17, and 18 for hospitality tents. Then put some back after. And took them out again before the second one. 
    • Change is hard. I wish I had answers but I think we just have to keep at it until the change feels normal. I think I will eventually get my change but it may be 6 months from now.    This is a good topic for discussion though. Thanks for posting. 
    • Yeah it seems damn near impossible to find the regular steel flex a7 7 iron under $50ish anywhere. There are a bunch but almost none are steel / regular / righty, ah well. Looks like the best I can do is an xxio forged 7 iron for $30.... I'll probably just ride it out till BF, I'm not trying to get a handicap on paper or anything this year anyways.
    • Update: The gaming laptop came first along with software licenses for FSX 2020, FSX Play, and FSX Pro. Set-up was pretty straightforward with just one minor configuration needed for Play to get it to not ask for changes every time it loaded, but nothing I couldn't handle. I spent a few days exploring the software and watching You Tube and the Vimeo tutorials on the Pro app. The V2 Net came in with the mat on a pallet and that was easy enough to put up in 5 minutes. I was really surprised, but the V2 color coding system made it a snap. The GC3 came in last night and that set-up is fool proof. I plugged it in to charge, hooked up to wifi, upgraded firmware and was ready to hit some shots.  Well, the GC3 is just amazing! I loved the FSX Pro app and the data points around it. The FSX 2020 had some cool contest features with the 6 foot challenge and the online closest to the pin contests. I tried my hand at the sim golf, but really need to get a bit more comfortable in the environment to be swinging driver and woods. There are some nuances about sim golf that I need to figure out, but I will get there. I finished up on the Pro app hitting 58 degree wedges to targets at 50, 60, 70, and 80 yards. I really was impressed with how much there is to do, but I am sure I will settle into it.  Overall, it has been a great experience and if you are limited on space and want the most accurate of data, this is a great way to go. 
    • Yep, because you just can't try a swing out and have it stick. This isn't something like, lets try this out on the range once. Any swing change, requires hours of work to override existing swing tendencies.  So, for those saying, "Just try it". That only works for someone who isn't already actively working on something with an instructor, or maybe new to golf. Unless those working with an instructor that they think they are not seeing improvement with their instructor. Otherwise, it will only be rude to the instructor and possibly damaging to the progress the golfer has already made to "just try it".
