Oh come on now, you don't think she's attractive? If she was in your bed, I bet you wouldn't kick her out of it? LOL

That's the cover?!? I can appreciate her as much as anyone and I'd be lying if I didn't say my mouth drops when I see her...but isn't that a bit much? (BTW, I'd go for Dufner's wife over Pauline, but that's just me. :-D )

Hmm...I think he might have been saying that luck has nothing to do with it?

I would. I don't think she's a particularly respectable or intelligent type of gal.

the face is an 8.5 the body is a 965,476,396,125,102,362.298347593846294856234985

You think her body is THAT great? It's nice that she's thin, but I think she borders on looking anorexic. She needs to add a little more muscle to those bones... The cover photo is the only one I've seen of hers, so maybe I wouldn't think this if I saw other pics....

I heard on the radio this morning that the LPGA is up in arms about this cover. I don't blame them. How much more blatant of a statement can you make then "We're putting the future wife of a golf professional on our cover because she's hot and we want to sell magazines" can you get?

That's so stupid. Who's typically the one buying the magazine? She's probably more recognizable than 99% of the players on the LPGA. That might only be because her last name but so be it.

I think this would be a better choice:

I'm sure a lot of LPGA fans would enjoy the cover, if you catch my drift.

I don't get it. Too subtle again...

Physical attractiveness and personality does not necessarily go hand in hand. I'd rather have someone looking less like a model, but with a personality I love. Also, I don't find her all that attractive. The face is what attracts me the most, and she doesn't get there. I could pick out lots of girls on the street that I'd rather look at.

I would be more interested in a "golfing fitness" issue with actual golfers showing their exercises.  There are other magazines (and 99.9% of the Internet) devoted to displaying women.

Just curious... To those passing judgement on Pauline's personality, and whether or not she is intelligent, respectful, or whatever... How much time have you spent with her to actually have a clue? Physical attractiveness is pretty much all there is to base anything on in this scenario... Which is of course subjective. To me, she's pretty attractive, but nothing special compared to any other woman on a magazine cover. Personally, I could care less who they put on the cover. The magazines are pretty much one giant advertisement with maybe a few good articles every year.

You don't have to talk to someone to have a pretty good idea, particularly when they write so much themselves on Instagram, Twitter, etc.

P.S. To pass judgment is to say whether it's right or wrong. I don't think many people are doing that. It's not really passing judgment to say "I don't find her attractive." It's just stating an opinion.

    • Not an individual tournament but with a partner(s), sure. Even if it's another low handicapper we can compete if we play well but most likely won't win. I agree with you what you're saying. Most of the club tournaments I play in have a gross division so it's not a big deal. One tournament where I've seen low handicappers have an advantage is a format where teams are divided into flights based on combined handicap. If you win that flight you play against the winners of the other flights in a horserace where strokes are greatly reduced. Most of the horse races I've seen or been a part of of are won by teams from the first two flights, the lower handicap flights.
    • Checked if my shoulders were too flat in a mirror. Apparently not as bad as I thought. I'd like to be more conscious of it before tomorrow's lesson. Going to do a bunch of slow movements through the evening and tomorrow morning then progressively speed up and see if everything still looks reasonable with a full speed swing. . .
    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
