I don't make him watch a Sarah Silverman video  detailing just how silly that is.

I know this is OT, but I would totally watch that.😃

Generally better at multi-tasking. Generally more attentive and task focused. 

 

These are opposites. Being good at multi tasking means not being really good at one thing, but reasonable at all things. So they can’t necessarily be more attentive and multitask at the same time.

I mean I have to win some points on my wife, right? 😂

I thought what Tiger did was funny, that is my opinion.

I got to have a nice discussion with my wife about what Tiger did. We actually had a long conversation, but here are the highlights. 


Her comment was "You guys are all a bunch of idiots anyway. We have very low expectations for your gender." 

I had to stop and think. "... So, does that mean you find it offensive or not offensive?" 

"I'm sure Tiger wouldn't find it so funny if he had to bleed for 4 or 5 days each month. ... Cuz, let me tell you... It's sucks." 

"So, offensive or not offensive?" 

"We've all heard you guys say things like "Hit it with your purse." or "Does your husband play golf too?""

"Honey, does that mean you find it offensive or not offensive?" 

"I'd go with child-ish and sophomoric. ... Not really offensive." 

So, according to my wife, Tiger is child-ish and sophomoric. 🤷‍♂️

I love this line! My wife had a similar reaction. But she just let it go afterwards.

Mine tried to let it go. But I kept pushing her. "Honey, are you offended or not offended? I need to know."

I explained what happened  to my girlfriend and she said,

‘So Tiger was saying that this JT guy hits like a girl.?’ 
 Yes.

’I get it….but JT can’t be that bad.’

It’s a joke.

’Yeah….but JT probably hits it really far right?’

Lol. Yeah but do you think it’s offensive?

’To JT?’

No, to women.

’You’re kidding right?’

Nevermind.

Now my gf knows nothing about golf (sports) and she’s Indian and isn’t familiar with some of American slang/culture, but still…..yeah.

Your daughter's opinion is her opinion. I have no issue with that. What Tiger did is fundamentally sexist, misogynistic and frat house behavior. It's another blemish on his off- course life.  Speaking of daughters, I wonder what Sam thought of it?

I really love it when someone takes offense at something on behalf of someone else.  This is like when the Redskins had to change their team name despite most Native Americans being fine with the name but white liberals took offense.

I was a little meh about his joke, but I find the whining and complaining about it is freaking hilarious.

I find this kind of generalized insult to men far more offensive than Tiger's joke.

You haven't been married long enough to completely understand this.  No, you don't ever have to win, she is always right.

The best advice I ever got when I got married was: "You now have to make a choice. Do you want to be happy, or do you want to be right?" 

I choose happy

No.  If you've gotten to the point where someone has to be right and someone has to be wrong you've turned a marriage into a power struggle, and you've both already lost.  IMO.

Not really.  Unless you adhere to the modern notion of the heckler's veto.

    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
