That's funny because I have a very similar thought when I see him on that Microsoft commercial. Showing him talk about how analyzing all of the data will help make him better. That's fine and dandy on paper, but it does seem like he's so technical and into nerdy stuff that it might take away from him actually practicing.
It's fine that he apologized. I think better of him for doing that than had he not.
But he's still earned a net negative in this whole thing, and I think he was speaking honestly before. He thinks the USGA is punishing him or something, when they're just enforcing the same old rules.
For me the range is about coping with some performance anxiety. I have some serious anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to anything competitive. And the range allows me the option to freely express my pursuit of excellence. A lot of the time I prefer the range because I can focus inwardly and really feel different things.
Inferno - Struggled to make par. Hanks kept the story going but they left a lot of the charm of the book out.
Manchester By The Sea - Birdie. Excellent acting and the accents were much better than some other Boston movies (I'm talking to you Marky Mark). It is not a feel good movie, just to warn those who have not seen it.
