Whitey Ford used his wedding ring to cut/nick the ball.

What kind of wedding ring did Whitey have?!  Raised diamonds, ruby encrusted?  I don't think your standard male gold band is going to mark up a baseball.

All you need is one sharp edge.

I think the real shame in all of this is that Bud Selig was actually voted in the Hall of Fame!

In 1998, everyone knew Sosa and Mcgwire were juicing but Bud Selig didn't make steroids illegal in baseball until 2002. If congress didn't get involved and Bud Selig had his way baseball may have never had a steroid policy. Then he stood up there all holier than though stating how he put a stop to steroids in baseball. Yeah, after turning a blind eye to it for close to a decade. Not only that but Bud Selig took over the United States most popular sport. By the time he was done with it, baseball became the United States 4th most popular sport. Behind the NFL, College Football and the NBA. For this Bud Selig was paid roughly 20 million per year. (Roughly twice what Roger Goodell and David Stern made. Two guys who actually GREW their sport.) During his tenure World Series ratings dropped from mid to upper teens to getting a 7 or an 8 in a "good" year. he was acting commissioner when the World Series was cancelled in 1994. 

When Rob Manfred took over his first task was defined as "Rebuilding the fanbase". Why on Earth would the previous guy be a hall of famer if you have to rebuild the fanbase right after him? Not only would I argue Bud Selig isn't a Hall of Famer, but I would argue he may have been one of the worst (at least over-paid) commissioners in recent American Sports History.

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

    • I stand just far enough away from the net that I’m not going to hit the frame in the follow through with the club. The ball shouldn’t ricochet back towards you with that net. The bigger problem is the wind likes to knock it down.
    • I will never stand within six feet of the net. Took a hard ricochet standing too close few years ago. Ball hit me on the nose bridge squarely making me pass out for a minute. Just saying...
    • Fortunately my wife doesn't care how much I golf. We are both in our mid 30s.  She doesn't play but loves tagging along and driving the cart.  Shes there to drink a few cocktails, look for balls in the woods with a retriever and make fun of my game.  We even went on a cruise to Bermuda this summer and let me play at Port Royal while she tagged along as well.    Im off weekends and she works 95% of weekends so those are wide open for me
    • Keep swinging in a simulator in the winter to stay consistent. That's a big if being I plow snow for the town and can be called into work at any second My last round last week outside, back 9 hit 5 of 9 GIR.   Amazing how much smoother a swing is when you're constantly playing.   Im still a 18ish handicap, short game betrays me from time to time.  Wish there was a better way in winter to improve the short game.  I have an indoor putting mat and chipping net with soft balls, works good for ball striking I guess
    • Right now I have a set of One Length Cobra F8s.   I really thought about getting the new Cobra LTDx One Lengths.   The PW of the F8 is 44*.   However the LTDx is 41.5*.   The 5i of the F8 is 22.5*.  The LTDx is 20.5*.    My question is, there will be a bigger gap between a new PW and my standard length 49* AW (yea a 44 to 49 is a solid gap as well but its pretty well gapped yardage wise).   And my current 4h will basically be the same loft as a new 5i.   Will it be a waste of time getting new irons without buying a complete new set of wedges.  Or is technology so far advanced in the shafts that the lofts don't mean as much comparing new and old irons.
