I've been out for so little compared to how long I was in (22 years active, retired now for 18 months) that I still feel like I'm in.  I could step back into my job and still do it as well as I did it last year (or so I think).  I do miss it, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.  And every time I get thanked, I turn it right back around.  It's the thankful people, the ones that actually appreciate the military, that make it all worthwhile (and I'm pretty sure anyone who has served who has been thanked by someone feels the same way).  You guys make it easier for us tolerate the idiots (like the funeral protestors from that church whose name I won't even mention).  So thank you!  :-)

haha yes i understand.my grandfather served in ww2, twice in korea, vietnam, and left covered in medals. so I'm am very defensive over my country and the men who protect it.

Guess I should have Googled first eh?  :-)

Or have gone to a psychiatrist regarding your extreme fear of large words! I can tell that you have a good sense of humor and I originally used disestablishmentarianism for its British connotation.

On a serious note, thanks for your honest perspective and service.

Thanks!

On the subject of Jungle Bird's video bombing at the U.S. Open, at least he publicly apologized for the incident afterward (in an accent that gives a pretty good indication he's not from Mississippi, I might add).

Hey, speaking of that rainbow dude (Rollen Stewart) I was curious so I Googled it.

Turns out the dude went (i.e. might have been all along) bonkers and tried to kidnap some people in 1992 because he thought the rapture was less than a week away (my head is still trying to figure out the rationale there...rapture coming, let's kidnap some people?).

He's in prison.  Three consecutive  life sentences, which in America means he's been eligible for parole since 2002.  Denied though...next up for review in 2017.

Hmmm...that's why we haven't seen him at sporting events any more.  Anyway...just thought it was some odd trivia to pass along.

The only thing I can say after watching today's round: the "fans" were embarassing! I don't care if it were Americans or not, the amount of idiots was way too high.

I totally agree.  Doesn't matter where they're from.  The guy heckling Garcia on 18, specifically, was way out of line and should have been removed after the first time he yelled "just tap it Sergio"!

Agree with you Dave.  I don't care which tournament it is, or in which country, such people should be summarily thrown off the premises - with no refund.  A warning to that effect should be posted near all entrances so that weasely lawyers for the plaintiff will not have their way.

But this is America, some of them are bound to try.

Just throw the b*****s out.  Let them come back another day.  Of course, if they do it again, they get tossed out again.  Why should the players, or spectators, or TV viewers for that matter, have to put up with morons like that?

You guys are like Judge Smails in that clip.

As long as the shouting comes after the swing--i.e., not the guy yelling "tap it in" or "three putt" on 18 today--what's the big deal?  Sure its mildly obnoxious but it doesn't interfere with the play.

And you're not going to get a crowd of New Yorkers to be quiet.

In my previous post I was referring to the guys of the type you mention in the quoted sentence - the before-the-play idiots.  Chuck 'em out!

The other boors, the ones that shout "In the Hole!" an instant after the hit, are mostly from New York or New Jersey and are best simply ignored.  There are too many of them to punish without busting the financials.

Sadly, this is the truth even if it only amounts to a few jack wagons "representing". This is not a Jets game! *ducks for cover*

I'm with you on this.

There is a time and a place for spectators to be loud and rowdy, but I don't believe that place is a golf tournament.

What may be an instant after impact on one tee box, may be an instant before a putt on the previous green, nearby tee box, etc.

Did anyone catch what was said after Sergio backed off his tee shot on 17 cause the wind stiffened? I heard a lot of jeers from the crowd, directed toward the heckler.

    • Day 80: Worked on grip and finding my clubface awareness/palmar flexion with 7-iron. Frustrated today because I struggled to get the clubface square; it was launch high right, or low left, with just a sprinkling of good ones, but I was not consistently hitting my launch window on the net. Luckily I have a lesson next week and hope to have a better path to work it out.
    • With legal substances? Yes I agree. You can’t be serious in thinking a tech head like BDC would use banned substances. That’s completely against his ideology on how he looks at golf I believe.
    • I will leave mechanics and technical stuff to others. You can do a few things that will  lessen the impact of playing an unfamiliar course.  1. Play a variety of golf courses, different styles, standards, lengths and conditions. It’s a lot easier to score well on a course you play all the time. Playing different types of golf can help sharpen your skills.  2. Read a book by the guy who owns this golf website. Then use it to pick a plan for each hole and shot.  3. Don’t sweat the score, just enjoy playing golf somewhere different
