They were promotional balls and not just for Tiger. Retailers were giving out two ball packs if you purchased a dozen Nike Ones.

Dude, re-f***ing-lax.  I wasn't insinuating that you were making racist comments.  I was just pointing out that there are a lot of balls with colors in the name ... but that doesn't mean they are that color.

Yes, but Drew, Nike actually made them in Black (and Platinum, I think) for a short time (promotional reasons). They even got their pros to use them in the Phoenix event.

Yes, I get that ... and had he not flown off the handle, I would have gladly said "my bad" immediately if he just corrected me by saying that they actually made a black ball.

But I had very little desire to "apologize" to somebody who immediately decided I was calling him a racist.

Don't want to add to that ... my apologies Hacker! ;)

You seem to be doing a good job at adding to it by yourself...The undertones of your original comment didn't seem very gentlemanly(to me). Golf is supposed to be a gentleman's game,played by gentlemen.  I guess your last comment seems like it's intended to escalate or incite me in some way? more power to ya big guy, you clearly feel in the right and that's OK with me...Have a Merry Christmas!!!  ps If you'er ever in Reno and want to play for some cash shoot me a message on here and I'll take you to my club and pay for your round! cheers!

I give up.

Pretty sure it's impossible for you to take anything I've said in this thread more wrong than you have to this point.

It hit 70 around Phlly yesterday and I was hoping to get a few holes in, but the course was just too wet after all the snow melted and we got about a half inch of rain on Saturday night. I would have had to go over to NJ to play and I just didn't have the time. Too much to do when the days are so short. Bummer.

The only positive thing is that, starting yesterday, the days will get a little longer every day. A little light at the end of the tunnel.

    • C’mon man! You were the President of the Taylor Gooch fan club! You got that tatoo!😜 Agree, 54 hole snooze fest.
    • True, but even when they decide to focus on a shot, it can still take 20-30 seconds for the player to execute. The broadcast likes to include the player picking a club and setting up. If they take too long, sometimes they cut away, sometimes they don’t. I’m not saying I prefer it.  Personally, I would love to see more shots, less putting. 
    • Apart from what  OP has just repeated, the clue is in the term temporary water,  the revised name for what used to be called casual water.   As it is  a temporary condition, you could not designate an area as temporary water all the time. And to push that thought further, if it were water all the time it wouldn't be temporary but by definition a penalty area. It wouldn't be surprising if on occasion parts of this mushy area do meet the criteria to be temporary water (I get the notion that you get occasional showers in Seattle) but it could be very difficult to know or have virtual certainty that a lost ball was in such a patch. 
    • Your only hope is to react quickly enough and  stop your downswing or deliberately miss the ball.
    • Interesting. Out of curiosity, I googled the past 20 winner of the PGA's Match Play tournament. My assumption was that most of the winners were mid-range to lower level guys. But it appears that most of the winners were "top 10" types. Perhaps match play does favor higher level players.  With that said, the assertion that match player is easier as a blanket statement is pretty absurd on it's face. In any 128 player field, the odds of a given player winning are 1 - X. X being the likelihood that any of the other 127 players will win. The fact that match-play is easier for certain types of golfer makes it mathematically necessary that it is harder for other types of golfers.
