Phil looks devastated that Ernie has a bigger trophy than him. Ernie is all smiles.

Real question is whether Luke is intentionally flipping off the camera. :-)

Real question is whether Luke is intentionally flipping off the camera.

I'm going with 100% yes.

Wait, which one's Tiger?

Well played.  What do you want to bet he smoked a few of the bigger kids as well.

That is one butch lesbian!

Ha Ha I would post that in a certain thread if I was not banned from it, probably a good thing I am.

Love the guy with the Fro in the back.  Looks like he is texting or something.

Wait, which one's Tiger?

Are you guys sure that any of them are Tiger?  The guy directly behind him (whose face is a teeny bit obscured by the trophy on "Tiger's" head) looks an awful lot like Kelly Leak.  And, the kid next to "Tiger" holding his trophy on the poor kids head looks like a slightly taller version of Tanner (12) ... maybe the other blonde kid (Regi??).  And the kid with the fro is Ogilvie!

I saw that is not Tiger, but rather Ahmad Abdul Rahim, and this is no golf team ... it's the Bad News Bears!

    • Ready golf except in match play. Match play is different. 
    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
