Hustle, the basketball film with Adam Sandler. Easy par, though not a movie you'd re-watch. I couldn't care less about basketball so I didn't recognize all of the basketball players in it, but it was a simple, decent movie.

Last night, to relax the night before today's match play round, I watched The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.  I am sort of on a kick of watching movies I either saw when I was younger or should have seen at that time to see what I think of them today.  If I had seen it before, it would have been in the early 90s, and I had no recollection of the movie.  

Anyway, it was a lot better than I expected, and I'm giving this one a birdie.  

Not for nothing, it has a great cast, too:  Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Lloyd, Ronald Lacey, Vincent Schiavelli, Dan Hedaya, and Yakov Smirnoff.

I agree, just watched that today. I thought his character was too similar in a way with Uncut Gems. Just wholesome rather than so volatile if that makes sense.

Fun movie. So over the top.

Remember, wherever you go, there you are. Lol.

Marry Me, with Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson. Free on Amazon Prime, 61% critic, 92% audience currently.

Solid par. Not a movie you'll watch twice, but solid, sweet, simple… It's entirely fake, of course, but suspension of disbelief applies to movies like this almost as much as Mission:Impossible type movies. Good background movie while doing some work.

At the suggestion of some friends, last night I watched To All the Boys I've Loved Before.  Based on what I was told, I was expecting this to be more similar to Clueless or Mean Girls.  It wasn't, but it was a cute movie, well made, pretty much the expected beats.  It gets its par by hitting a good drive in play, a mid-iron to the middle of the green, cozying a putt up to tap-in range, and tapping in.   There are sequels, but I don't plan at the moment to watch them -- I enjoyed this one, but I'm definitely not in the target audience, other than it reminding me how glad I am that social media and prolific digital cameras weren't a thing when I was in high school.

    • Day 115.  I only had time today for 20 balls in the same drill as yesterday, but I did find the time.
    • Day 163: Worked mostly on driver today with almost golf balls. Did some work on static change, then a bunch of rehearsals, and then some full swings. Made some improvement on the push start line, and ever so slight drop kick (graze the ground), at least for today. 
    • Maybe I've interpreted this incorrectly, but it just strikes me that the underlying reason is not really about fewer events.  And while the amount of money is obviously so enticing, but even that may not be the main reason for some. Patrick Reed, among others, are talking about how the PGA Tour is not listening to the players and making necessary changes.  I never quite understood exactly what type of major change could be made, other than increased prize money and a different distribution. But with the revelation that LIV golfers are paid a negotiated amount to just show up and play, it seems, at least to me, that the real reason could be wanting a negotiated contract that pays a certain amount regardless of tournament outcomes. It may be that desire to be paid like a baseball player, just as an example, who shows up each game, goes about his business, maybe batting .300, hitting 30 HRs while his team wallows outside of the playoffs and he collects millions.  Regardless of the stark differences in available money between the PGA and MLB, it sure seems like that is really the life these golfers want.  And it seems that is what LIV is offering, or maybe I should say over offering. While I may not agree with what LIV is doing, I do understand the appeal of a contract over time; especially as one is getting past their prime.  It can't be lost on these golfers what some professional athletes are getting paid, with a portion being guaranteed.  A PGA Tour pro who has career earnings of over $25M is probably doing pretty good; especially while maintaining a top 125 in the sport.  But in other sports...

    • Lol. Something to the effect of 'you miss 100% of shots you don't take'.   
    • Ugh, I wish we had better ways to deal with these sorts of idiotic law suits. Such of waste of time and money.
