Go Kings!!! Taking out Vancouver would be awesome. Caps and Bruins in OT right now in what is shaping up to be a slugfest of a series. Gotta think the B's will prevail. They are built for this type of hockey.

Been watching playoff hockey all evening and something dawned on me as Seabrook just tied the game for the Hawks.

Golf for the most part is extremely ****ing boring.

Wow another awesome game for the Flyers! Hopefully they can complete the sweet on Wednesday.

It will be interesting to see if any Penguins are suspended tomorrow.  I am guessing Asham will be and possibly Neal.

I expect Asham to be suspended. Neal, on the other hand, could go either way. The hit was late as hell, and he did leave his feet, so I could see him getting suspended, too. Losing him would really hurt the Penguins at this point.

I think Bryz did a pretty good job today. He did let in a few softies, but he still managed to post a respectable save percentage against one of the best offenses in the league.

All the series have been rougher than expected. We knew Philly/Pittsburgh would be crazy, but St Louis/San Jose reminds me of back when Pronger was a Blue and the Sharks knocked them off in round 1. I was pulling for SJ then, but for SJ now.

Some guys are really showning their class (or lack of it). I'd comment on it further, but don't want to upset anyone.

Craig Adams got suspended for the next game, so the Pens could have three of their guys out for at least Wednesday's game.

there's been lots of despicable play out there this postseason, I'm actually kind of shocked by the amount and how it's not confined to one or two teams, it's everywhere.

Looks like Asham gets four and Neal one. Also, looks like Raffi Torres will be sitting for the 'yotes after he nearly killed Hossa.

Hope the Flyers close it out tonight!

Shanahan only suspended Neal for going after Giroux, not for the blatant blindside charge on Couturier. Can't say I agree with that, but hopefully the series ends today, anyway.

Yeah, that was tough to watch. Hopefully Lavy will light a fire under their asses so they can continue to dominate at Consol Energy Center.

The Flyers' inability to score even-strength goals the last couple games is starting to worry me, but it's good to see their power play is still clicking. I DID originally pick the Flyers to win in 6, though, so maybe that'll come true!

Lucky. I've never been to a playoff game of any sort; woulda killed to have been at the Wells Fargo Center for game 3.

I know dude I almost went to game 3 but decided not too.  Hopefully tomorrow is good!

I got my ticket on stubhub earlier this morning for $90 which isn't too bad.  This will be my first Flyers playoff game but I went to game 4 of the Phillies 2009 NLCS vs the Dodgers when Jimmy Rollins got a walk off hit in the 9th.  Such an amazing game, its worth the price if you can get lucky enough to see a win.

Well that was well worth the $90 I spent on the ticket!! Awesome effort, Giroux was so pumped up after the first goal and the crowd was nuts the whole game.  Lets go Flyers! Can't wait for round 2.

The two games I watched today were the first games I've watched all the way through this entire season. I guess I picked a good day though, two pretty entertaining games.

    • i would suggest a more lofted fairway wood or hybrid since a 3 wood needs a good lie to be hit off the fairway.  If you are in the rough or in a bad lie, then the 6 iron would be your only choice.  A 5 wood might be shorter but is more flexible and adaptable in the types of lies you can play it from.  The iron for me would be anything from a 6 to 8 iron depending on your comfort and distance.  The wedge you should consider whether you can play a slightly less lofted wedge, like a gap wedge maybe.  However, the less loft you have the more skill you need in playing different shots.  Hitting a sand wedge is easier but it does mean most of your shots around and close to the green will be high lofted shots. The putter is the one club where I question whether you truly need it.  If you can putt with something like the wood/hybrid in your bag, that gives you far greater options and flexibility.  However, it would need practice since we rarely putt with any other club. In my case a 4 club choice would be 4 hybrid, 7 iron, PW and SW/LW depending on course conditions.  I would putt with the hybrid and use that for most tee shots.  On my home course, there are maybe two holes where I couldn't reach a green in regulation with those clubs.   Essentially long par 4's where I need to hit driver off the tee.
    • Are the 512 replies to this topic about Rory being overrated or has this become a Rory Catch all topic? If the latter, the topic title should maybe reflect it. Good to see him win again. His first since 2019. 2020 wasn’t his best year and an up-and-down 2021 so far with missing the cut one week and being top 10 the next.  But that has been Rory all along and maybe what spurred this topic: his inconsistent performance. One week he’s hitting it as well as anyone has and the next he’s out of it and struggling. His talent is undeniable, but inconsistency is keeping him down.
    • I'm not an expert but the swing in the video seemed like you did not bring the upper body around quickly enough. Is it possible your focus on not firing the shoulder right away is causing too much lag there? Swing is about tempo so too slow can be an error just like too fast.  
    • I will be competing in a 4-club tournament in a few weeks. I'm leaning toward the following choices: 3-wood -- I usually hit it about 215 but I'm hoping to choke down and swing easier to hit it under 200 6-iron -- for all shots 90 yards to 160 sand wedge -- for all shots under 90 yards  putter -- I don't think I could putt with anything else. I personally think this should be required in order to protect the greens, but that is not the case.  Any thoughts on different or better choices?   
    • Day 510: Did some weight/pressure shot drills in my office at work without a club. Did more takeaway/backswing work at home, and hit some foam balls at slow speed incorporating backswing and weight/pressure shift elements.
