STOP IT!!!!

I personally have noticed an increase lately in the idiotic, ridiculous, moronic and tautological "I personally" phrase to start statements on this site. It is reaching epidepic proportions.

Not as bad as "he's" "instead" of "his", "then" instead of "than" or "suppose" instead of "supposed", but it's getting up there.

I personally think that you personally will find that if you personally just say "I" instead of "I personally" it will be well understood that you personally mean yourself and noone else.

Another words, you don't like people being redundant redundant?

I, personally (as opposed to the "I" sitting across the room from me), would have to agree with you.  Although, this kind of stuff doesn't bother me that much here, more so in emails and memos at work.

Lucky it is still at epidepic proportions...when it reaches epidemic proportions we'll have real problems! :)

Wait until it gets to epidermic proportions ... then we'll need some aloe vera.

I personally don't think that I ever ever use that phrase, nor do I remember seeing it all that much. That said, now that you've pointed it out it's going to start popping up everywhere. :-(

The amount this happens is mind boggling.

Why don't you go and swallow two, consecutively, one after the other.

Here's a lovely example from yesterday:

I love my Cobra equipment, but I did personally pick up a Tour Edge TSG

Obviously that's so you don't misunderstand and think he had his butler pick it up for him.

I personally, think Shorty is a grumpy old fart.

I personally, think this thread is a waste of everyone's time. Can I get my 30 seconds back?

There.

I just adjusted the space-time continuum so you have your 30 seconds back. Only problem is you now live in a parallel universe and work as a WalMart greeter and your face and butt have been swapped.

Tell us the whole story. There must be a downside.

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
