Men: Tiger; Bubba; Phil Women: Lexi Thompson; Na-yeon Choi; Michelle Wie I don't have time for hate.

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 -Ror

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


Tiger - His accomplishments speak for itself. Still rooting for him to catch Jack

IK Kim - Yes she missed a 1-footer, but she showed a lot of class and kept her head up even after the loss. She's cute too...

Yani Tseng - My wife is Taiwanese so she and I cheer for her.


Gary McCord - His inability to STFU during his commentary and his stupid mustache puts him at the top of my list

Phil - When I started playing and watching golf, I couldn't stand listening to Phil because he sounds like he's trying to sell something to you even if it was at a press conference.

Rory Sabbatini - He's a douche...

Mic, not Mac.

I am pretty sure the pronunciation has to do with what letter follows the "c."  Nothing more, nothing less.  Micilroy just sounds odd, macilroy sounds right.  Compare it to McIntyre.  That is also pronounced with a "mac" and would sound funny with a "mic" ... I don't think it's a coincidence.

Anyway ...

I like to watch:

Rory McIlroy (not because he's a good golfer, just because I like how he pronounces his name)

Nick Watney (hometown guy)

Graeme McDowell

There really isn't anybody I dislike.  I pretty much always root for everybody except the leader because I'm always hoping for drama.

I don't follow the tour players much at all but from what I've seen pop up in the news...  Mickelson seems like a little bit of a spaz but in a friendly funny way.  Garcia and Bubba Watson sound like pretty big tools.

Tiger Woods - I enjoy watching myself on film from time to time

Rory Mc (can never spell his last name)

Phil Mickelson - Phil the thrill

Least Favorite:

Henrik Stenson - Ever since that time he took of his clothes...

John Daly - Disgrace to golf

The baby walrus - Another disgrace to golf. The guy is fat as f*ck and doesn't even try half the time.. yet some how shoots good. All in all, he's disgusting to watch.

Tiger- Reminds me of myself. B-) Always fun to watch.

Dufner- Love his style, or lack thereof.

Dustin Johnson- Likeable guy

Least Favorites:

SERGIO- Takes the cake easily on this one. Can't stand the guy.

John Daly- Was given a gift and seems to take it for granted. He just gets under my skin. Seems to disrespect the game to me.

Miguel Angel Jimenez- I can't justify why I don't like him, and really I don't think that I truly don't like him, I just root against him. Really have no solid reasoning for this one. He just rubs me wrong.

    • I’d hit an iron or whatever depending on the tee to the right side, then have a short iron in with a good angle to the green.
    • One thing no one has ever questioned about Tiger is his willingness and ability to work hard.

    • 99% of the time when I'm playing my home club, I'm walking and carrying, so don't drink alcohol (too bothersome to walk with it).  But when I'm on vacation or on a golf trip/round with buds, we're almost always on carts, and I'll get a beer or two throughout the round at least half the time.  I don't order cocktails on the course, though...like to keep it light. I've never noticed it affecting me negatively, but I'm convinced it helps me from time to time.  When I'm not playing my best, it's usually my flaw of getting a little fast with my hands and out of tempo.  A beer or two seems to help slow me down.  In FL a few years ago, I was playing at a resort with my son and just kinda grinding through the round, but not scoring.  At the turn I got a couple of fairly light local summer brews to take along, then birdied 10, 11, and 13 (nearly an ace!).  Playing on HHI a couple of weeks ago I was in the same scenario--hitting it pretty decent but just grinding and not making birdies.  Tried the beer method.  Sadly, this time--no difference at all.    One thing I NEVER do anymore is drink caffeine before a round (no coffee if my round is morning or early afternoon, or just my morning coffee and nothing else if my round is late afternoon).  I can absolutely see its impact on my game--really struggling with rushing the hands and keeping a smooth tempo...full swing, putting, everything.  Heck, on caffeine, I notice I talk faster than normal (saying a lot), and am a little jumpy.  So if I'm gonna do drugs (the legal ones) before golf, it's gonna be the one that slows me down.  
    • Day 108 (7/23/21) - Aggravated my Tennis elbow yesterday to will be taking it easy for the next few days. Since my low point control has been poor lately, I worked on set up positions with my 7-wood and 7-iron, taking short swings focused on getting my low point in front of the ball.
