Well, it certainly seems like McIlroy is really concentrating on letting folks know he's been hitting the weights hard lately.

Working hard in general. His twitter/facebook posts are filled with him either hitting the weights or golf balls. He wants this Grand Slam baaaaaaad. I'm super excited, hope he's in contention on Sunday.

One thing about The Masters is you never know who is going to win it. I'm calling Spieth. I don't care who wins. This is the best tournament hands down. The best part about this year is that I will be there for the Wednesday practice round. Thanks @missitnoonan for scoring the tickets.

Spieth has put six yards on his drives compared to last year (289 to 295), which is really good. One thing that's always concerned me about him is that he didn't hit far enough, which I thought was the reason Bubba ended up taking him down at the Masters. Good to see he's improving his length.

It could be a lefty thing too...Mike Weir won there and he drives the ball 190 lol

Surprised more people not picking DJ. The way he's been playing and the fact he should be able to eat up those par-5s, I see a good week for him next week. The only question with him is the short game. He was destroying Augusta last year through 27 holes and then his short game became a disaster. However, so far this year, his short games seems so much more crisp.

I put 25 bucks apiece on DJ and Spieth and a small token on Louis Oosthuizen, so here's hoping for a good week from all three of those guys.

Oosthuizen is a good pick. If he's in form, he could really do some damage.

You're welcome @CarlSpackler . I was super stoked to have my name drawn for the Wednesday round. Par 3 contest, skipping contest on 16 - it dosn't get any better than that. Unless of course Fuzzy picks me this time to hit a ball at Amen corner #12. He picked a guy directly next to me in 1988 and then the guy hooked it in the woods. That could have been me!

Trip Report.

Ah yes. I shall have some good pics. I can take the camera in Wednesday, but no phone. Hopefully I can talk my wife into parting with her super camera with big zoom lens and rapid fire thingy.

Grade?!!! Wait. I graduated (muffled sound) years ago.

Oh, yeah, pics and a good write-up. It might be worth starting your own thread.

Definitely ... This thread will be so active all week that it'll get buried in an hour. For sure, create a dedicated thread so we can always easily keep referencing your photos. And don't take shitty blurry photos like SOME PEOPLE I know.

Pardon the Interruption totally duped me with their fake Tiger Woods April Fool's story today.  I was like WTF IS GOING ON HERE.  Fell for it.

I must've missed it.

What fake TW story are you referring to?

It said that Tiger Woods had requested to be the first off the tee on both Thursday and Friday morning so he wouldn't be on television.  My first thought actually was that Tiger would never request such a thing, but maybe his agent did.  I was all ready to ****ing roast Tiger for this if it was true, but of course it wasn't.

Enjoy Carl. My wife won tickets and we are taking our fathers. We're driving from Michigan Saturday and going to play 18 in NC Sunday and then play The Landing on Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee GA on Monday. My father always wanted to take his father and his dad died at a young age, so it means so much to experience this with him and my FIL. I guess we'll all be able to check one off the Bucket List.

    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
    • "Did you not read post #2?" apparently not all of it...
    • I queued these up to watch later on the big tv, thanks! I love Lost, have watched it many times as well as The Leftovers, so this show is a must watch for me.
