Wow, what a fantastic break Rory just got!

Rory in the flower bed.

No wonder they score better than me- I never get those f*cking breaks.

If that was my ball, it would be buried in a wild boars ass sitting in the thistles.

Not sure if you guys saw the shot or not, but I was being sarcastic.  Rory hit a pretty decent shot for his second that hit a little short of pin high on the fringe about 20 feet left of the pin, but it hit directly off the top of a sprinkler head and shot up into those flower beds.

A horrible break, because he was looking at a fairly decent birdie chance, and instead had to scramble for bogey and now he's on the cut line.

It would not hurt covering these heads up! I have seen that several times on tour. It's pretty stupid. Becuase it aint a part of the course...On Augusta they does not even use them!

LOL.  I think that was the guy that found his ball for him.  He was just standing there watching him hit the shot like "OK, that's two azaleas, and 3 dogwoods he just killed, I'll tell the chairman to subtract the amount of money it's going to cost me to replace them from his 38th place check." ;)

I dont know, maybe they used them in the old days. They hand-water every green and green area, flowers, trees and shrubs to conserve water. Thats their enviroment policy :)

You know, it really wouldn't be the Masters without Fred Couples to collapse within the first five holes of Saturday's round.

This morning, Golf Channel had a highlight segment on Marc Leishman, as he was 3 under after 3 holes today, and in the lead at -5. Looks like he missed the cut. Wow. I had a round this weekend with fellow TST- ers where my round sorta fell apart at the turn. I won't whine any more about that. Oh that reminds me, Eric ( @0ldblu3 ) told me on the course that he was gonna make a crazy pick on Blixt for the contest here. Not bad, Eric.

    • You need to remember that the fulcrum for a swing weight scale sits at 14 inches from the butt end of the club. That means that the majority of whatever shaft you are using will be out past the fulcrum. Therefore the shaft weight plays a greater influence on the head side of the club vs. the grip and why a heavier shaft will increase SW more than a lighter one. Of course there are also shaft balance points to take into consideration but for this example I am assuming our hypothetical shafts are the same other than material and weight. Your example above would depend on the weights of the two shafts since 38.5 to 39.5 would usually equal 6 SWP. Your weight difference breakeven would be around 54g to tip the scale either way.
    • I played my first round in 22 years on May 30 of this year. All 4 courses at Shanty Creek Resort. (It's 7 miles from the cottage). Marysville GC Oak Ridge - both courses Cedar Glen- repeatedly Golden Hawk - a lot Bello Woods Country Club Of Detroit (guest) Rammler Plumbrook St Clair Shores Muni Greystone Lake St Clair Metropark (par 3 course) Burning Tree (guest) Stony Creek Metropark        
    • Don't get your hopes up.  Women do a lot of things to attract a mate.  The only way to know if she is into golf for real, and not just to get a mate, is if she goes and plays on her own.  My wife and I have been a couple since 2006.  She has never went to play golf on her own or with just her and her friends.  She will only go if I ask her to.  I've tried getting her to play and take it up as a hobby, but I think she only got into it because I liked it, and she wanted to do something together.  She doesn't practice or even touch her clubs.  It's like pulling teeth to get her to come out.  Now, if we go somewhere on a trip and I take my clubs, she wants to ride in the cart with me and watch.  To her credit, she was walked and rode many times with me, but she doesn't play!  I think now that the kids are starting to show an interest in it, especially my daughter who hits on the sim with me some, she's starting to show an interest again.  In fact, once I built the golf tent for the simulator room, she came out in pretty cold weather and hit balls for a good long while.  She had a nice push draw going too!  
    • Have you looked into “Tiger Stepping”?  I’ve always had trouble flighting down wedges with wedge specific shafts but have just lived with it.  My best wedge flight came from my old Ping Eye2’s that were before someone came up with wedge shafts.  Check it out, I think it has to do with using your sets 8 iron in the wedges.
    • This is probably a good place to point out that the Rules of Golf now include a local rule for an option to Stroke and Distance, primarily to speed up play in more casual rounds.  There's also a Model Local Rule to address the "leaf rule" situation.  For your own purposes you could utilize both.  So its possible to play by the rules and still not hold up play by searching too much.
