Three favorites and three players you dislike and why?

Errrrrrrrr:

-Tommy Gainey - two gloves? maybe you should rethink why you have yet to do much of anything on the tour

-Rory Sabbatini - pretty self explanatory

-Cameron Tringale - I remember seeing an interview with him last year  ago on GC and my god was he arrogant for never doing shit on this tour. Also, that soul patch and swagger he has just furthers my irritation of him.

Favorites:

-Ernie - Nothing but class, has a huge following and always cared more about his family and his foundation than his trophy collection

-Dustin Johnson - Fun to watch, great talent and really gained my respect with how he handled the debacle at Whistling Straits

-John Daly - pretty self explanatory as well

Mac means "son of " , Mic means you have no idea!

Favorites

Tiger- No one nearly as exciting to watch (fist pumps, crazy shots like 16 at memorial this year) and love how he shows his emotion and frustration. Makes him seem human unlike these robot other players on tour

Phil- Similar to tiger he is exciting to watch. Hits shots most wouldnt attempt like the flop shot at augusta on saturday this year.

Jim Furyk- Love his swing

Least Favorite

Rory- Dont want a foreigner to dominate

Luke Donald-Gets so much hype but never comes through in the big tournaments. Just places well gets his check and world ranking points without ever doing anything of meaning

Lee Westwood- See Luke Donald

Woods for sheer play possibilities

Couples just because he is a cool cat

Stricker because he is a regular nice guy

No so fav

Peter Jacobson because he is just not funny

Rory Sabbatini for douche moves

Quote:
Unravelling the mystery of Allenby is not easy. He can be charming one minute, condescending the next. He ranks among the most successful, yet least popular, athletes in Australia. Rightly or wrongly, he has a reputation for being thin-skinned with a penchant for finding excuses and blaming others, a powderkeg who is overly sensitive to criticism and ungracious in defeat.

I root against Rory McIlroy simply because he pronounces his name wrong.  He is fun to watch but I cannot get past this, it's a pet peeve of mine.  McIlroy should be pronounced "Mic Ill Roy", not "Mac El Roy".

McDonalds

McGwire

McIlroy

Mic, not Mac.

But for the guy that doesn't like him for being foreign...isn't that the definition of racism?  The beauty of being a sports fan is that it is perfectly fine to be semi-irrational. I don't like football players whos hair sticks our of their helmets, I don't like Rory because he says his name wrong, I don't like baseball players that wear those silly ionic necklaces.  Those are all perfectly legitimate reasons to root against someone in the sports fans world.  But because of race?  Shame.

Location has nothing to do with race. So many people do not understand what racism is. Racism = hate of a given race or creed. Not liking people because they are from a different country is just small mindedness but everyone has a right to there own opinion. I think it is in poor taste to dislike anyone because of their region Behavior like how they treat people, maybe, but just because they were born on foreign soil is not a good reason. Not to root for someone because you are patriotic, but still not hate is fine. I do like to see Americans win American tournaments but do not hate Rory or Adams or Els for winning either. Now back to topic....

No one really sticks out in terms of dislike.  Bubba's attitude used to bother me, but he has since won me over after the emotion he showed winning The Masters.

Rory, Ernie, Westwood and Dufner

Keegan Bradley is frickin' irritating, Webb Simpson is Ned Flanders, VJ's a bit of a douchebag and Justin Rose just bugs me.

That's 3 right? (writes in scorecard)

    • I think it’s even worse than what you describe.   I live in an area where people are cheering that there will be no mask mandates and they like to rub it in peoples faces.   They are literally trying to own people who are taking it seriously.   I mean, people are just disgusting.  I can’t even muster anything in me to feel remotely sorry for people like that, nor have anything to do with them.   I’m sure there were lots of people in generations past who took the easy way out and did the wrong things in prior pandemics and war times, but that’s not terribly easy to find in history books.  Books will be written about how people not only killed themselves, but in their twisted belief that they are “protecting their freedoms” they are stripping them away from others.      I have 2 kids under the age of twelve.   With Delta allowed to become dominant because “people want to live their best life” (at others expense), they now are scared to go back to school (and the idiot system won’t do remote learning this year), won’t be able to travel and see their grandparents* , and can do less than 3 months ago.   Nice job folks.   * their grandparents are total a-holes though, so I won’t shed a tear.
    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
    • Saw this interesting drill for encouraging hip rotation by deliberately opening the face in the downswing. Anyone tried this? I’d worried it will develop a bad habit of opening the face at the top of the swing.  
    • "With the delta variant taking off around the U.S., the federal government Tuesday updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new advice is to mask up indoors if you live in a place with "substantial" or "high" coronavirus transmission. (The guidance for people who are unvaccinated remains the same: Always mask up indoors.)" Check your county's transmission rates:   Do You Need To Wear A Mask Indoors Where You Live? Check This Map The CDC wants vaccinated people to wear masks indoors if the coronavirus is spreading widely where they live. Find out the level of virus transmission in your county. And, this was interesting: "A week after the crowds descended upon Provincetown, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Fourth of July -- the holiday President Joe Biden hoped would mark the nation's liberation from COVID-19 -- the manager of the Cape Cod beach town said he was aware of "a handful of positive COVID cases among folks" who spent time there. "We are in touch with the Health Department and Outer Cape Health Services and are closely monitoring the data," Alex Morse told reporters. The announcement wasn't unusual with roughly half of the country still unvaccinated and flare-ups of the virus popping up in various states. But within weeks, health officials seemed to be on to something much bigger. The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated. As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized. The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications. Before Provincetown, health officials had been operating under the assumption that it was extraordinarily rare for a vaccinated person to become infected with the virus. And if they did, they probably wouldn't end up passing it on to others, such as children too young to qualify for the vaccine or people who were medically vulnerable. The idea that vaccines halt transmission of the virus was largely behind the CDC's decision in May suggesting vaccinated people could safely go without their masks indoors and in crowds, even if others were unvaccinated. But that assumption had been based on studies of earlier versions of the virus. Delta was known for its "hyper-transmissibility," or as one former White House adviser put it "COVID on steroids." "What has changed is the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and Biden's chief medical adviser. When a vaccinated person gets infected with delta -- called a "breakthrough infection" -- "the level of virus in their nasopharynx is about 1,000 times higher than with the alpha variant," Fauci said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC. All indications now are that the Provincetown outbreak investigation is among the pieces of new evidence behind the CDC's decision to ask Americans to once again put on their masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated."   CDC mask decision followed stunning findings from Cape Cod beach outbreak - ABC News The CDC's mask decision followed stunning findings from a Cape Cod beach outbreak. The viral load of vaccinated beachgoers changed what we know about the delta variant.  
    • It would be interesting to know if they'd perform any differently with the belt device. As I wear a different wrist "health" tracking device the apple watch wouldn't work for me. Also, have you noticed any wear on the face of the sensors from rubbing on the bottom of your bag?
