Tiger is the biggest jerk in the world. Doesnt deserve the gallery he gets. He smiled one time through out his round. And it was when he came out of the port-a-potty 2min before his teetime. Johnny Vegas tossed me a ball though!

really? i'm not sure i can agree with that. yeah, you've got some old guys who could benefit from winning a half recognized event that doesn't get you into any majors or wgc's. on the other hand you'v

Tiger's old swing wins at Tiger's old favorite stomping ground with Tiger's old caddy.

anyway else get annoyed with the constant barrage of useless "quips" from the crowd? the dudes constantly screaming "get in the hole" are just morons and have the slight twang of accent that ma

Back to not talking about caddies......

Was again dissapointed in the US golfers in this tournament.  Glad to see Rickie Fowler have a good final round, but really thought Watney, Stricker, Gary Woodland or Lucas Glover may have been better contenders.  Didn't expect Bubba, DJ, or Phil to do much with those narrow fairways and only 2 par 5's.

Not shocked to see McIlroy, Luke Donald, or Westwood in the top 10......again.

One would have thought that Congressional was an ideal course for American golfers to shine, and the only Americans in the top ten were Robert Garrigus and Kevin Chappell. Fowler was the only American with a chance to win at Firestone, and the other two Americans in the top ten (Zach Johnson and David Toms) were two guys you wouldn't think would do well on this kind of layout. It's not a good sign for the USA brigade in Atlanta, since Congressional, Firestone, and Atlanta Athletic Club are three very similar courses.

Strangely enough, there were plenty of American flags on the leaderboard at Royal St. George's. Go figure.

OK, once again ... for such a rule happy sport, makes no sense why golf doesn't mandate players must use the same tool for the job on the greens.    The mechanics of a belly putter are quite different from a conventional putter.       The guys that travel with them have to have a separate hard case for their putters - they don't even fit in the golf bag - that alone should be enough to ban the dastardly contraptions from the face of the earth ...

If you're going to mandate one shaft length, then you might as well mandate one head shape, too. Back and through, how is that so different? The standard length for a belly putter is 43", how long is your driver?

I'm getting tired of people hyping Rickie Fowler to death. Let him win a regular season event first. Then I will stick the constant major talk. I still see him as the 5th best of the "younger generation", behind Rory, Jason, Ryo and Matteo. And my opinion won't be changing until he actually puts 4 rounds together and wins.

(I'm not talking about you FowlPlay personally, but rather all the Rickie Fowler hype machine people out there)

No one here is hyping him, he's played well as of late. He's a good pick - I would pick him over Matteo any day.

Read the last thing I said

And I'm sure I've seen a few people hyping him here anyway.

Rickie before Matteo? Certainly on current form...but overall? Each to their own, I guess.

Agreed. I don't care about the clothes or the hair, he's consistently playing good golf and if he keeps playing good golf he's going to win soon.

Ryo is over-rated IMO. He is a great golfer, but over-rated.

If Rickie was wearing Dustin Johnson clothes I think he would have received 1/3 of attention he has now! :D

    • Yes, I'm going to go through all the tutorials. I also started the flight plan to look at Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia, but it was too late. Let me get the hang of everything and I'll check out the mutlitplayer. MSFS has already used up 100 GB I suspect it'll get to 200GB.
    • I actually haven't done it, yet.  Used to be in the Traffic menu, there was a section to see online multiplayers or friends--but I haven't been in that menu in months.  I think then you can just get together and decide on a place to spawn, and you'll see one another and can possibly chat on headset.  Not sure if more is needed for the chat piece.  I know I can see my one random friend's online status and his scores on the landing challenges.  Maybe there's some option to "find" them in the sim?  I'll look more into all the multiplayer stuff tonight.  But friend me if you want, and we'll see if we can figure it out. I don't have it on my XBox...pretty limited space on that guy these days.  But, yeah, I bet it'd drain controller batteries like crazy if it's constantly rumbling.  Not sure how much flying, or sim-flying you've done, but if you're just starting out, maybe some of the AI-assist options around trim and power/mix control could help.  The training items seem to be pretty informative, too.   Tying it into golf, I've checked out a bunch of famous courses...everything in the Monterrey peninsula area, a lot of the UK, Bandon, etc.  I usually start at some random city, then pick a course I want to 'play', takeoff, find the course and give it a flyover, then land at the nearest airport in a little 'pretend mission' like I'm going on a golf buddy trip in my private plane. .  Then next time, takeoff from there and pick the next course.  I just made the hop from northern Ireland over to the west coast of Scotland a few nights ago.  In that part of the world, if you enable live weather, it can turn into a real challenge in smaller planes.
    • Day 32 (28 Jul 21) - Played nine today with the 5yr old grandson.  We got back before the rain started.  Used this practice round to work on ball striking and carry distance.  Using the Approach S20, I had planned to used the back distance of the greens as the "carry" factor on the approaches.  Of course if the pin was in the front, then I used the middle distance (center of green) to figure what I needed to carry.  Planned well, executed poorly as the round had only 1 GIR and 4 nGIR.  
    • Played 9 this morning / midday with the 5yr old grandson.  He was definitely the better player today.  Not a par or better to my name.  Putting was erratic (again the greens here are difficult at best (bare spots, erratic growth grass, etc.)) and the ball had no zip off the clubs.  Score was a disappointing 51 as I was looking to be in the low 40's at worst today.  Oh well, some days are meant to be just enjoying a 5-yr old play with abandon and do well.   And hopefully there will be tomorrow where we can go again.    
    • In my view, yes.  Whenever you do closest to the pin in multiple shots, someone who holes out prior to (or even at the number indicated) wins.
