  1. Well said. Sometimes the penalty for our carelessness can be steep, but there's a lesson there if a person wants to learn it. Sure, we can come up with all the penalties we want for these "thieves" that don't turn in lost equipment found on a golf course. But then again, what's the penalty for being negligent and leaving your stuff behind? If there's no penalty for that, then what's the impetus to prevent us from being irresponsible with our own property?

  2. I still can't understand why you're saying its the guy who forgot the clubs fault. It doesn't matter under what circumstances the club was left behind...if you take it, you're a thief and a no good person. No one deserves to have their stuff stolen for any reason. You don't take what isn't yours, simple as that. It doesn't matter if someone left the keys in the car with the windows down and all the doors wide open...any decent human being wouldn't touch it. If you would, then YOU deserve to be kicked in the sac.

  4. The modern ball has made the 1 and 2 iron obsolete, not necessarily the loft. It's too hard to hit high, even for the best players. Tiger once mentioned that he tried hitting a 1 iron he had from college, and couldn't hit it high enough to work with. Even his 2i is a specialty club and it certainly isn't meant to drop and stop; it's a driving iron. These days anything below a 3 iron requires either a tee, a very high swing speed, or a lot of GI technology to hit high enough, and most golfers don't have the speed to launch the 3 and 4 high enough. Hybrids and higher lofted woods are now the bet

  5. Any club I find goes straight to the clubhouse when i finish my round unless the person who lost it comes looking for it. It aint mine and im not going to search for the individual. Ive forgotten clubs in the past and ask the clubhouse if they have it. Sometimes they do sometimes they dont. If its gone its gone, no need to cry over spilled milk.

  6. Players rotate being the "Wolf." The player designated as the "Wolf" on a hole gets to choose whether to play the hole 1-vs.-3 (himself against the other three players in the group) or 2-vs.-2. And if the Wolf chooses to play 2-on-2, he must choose his partner immediately following that player's drive. Example: Player A is the Wolf. Player B hits a bad drive. Player C hits a pretty good drive. If the Wolf wants C as a partner, he must claim his partner before Player D tees off. The side with the lowest better ball score wins the hole. If it's 2-on-2, then the winning side wins t

  7. I read that there is nothing in his agreement with the PGA or PGA Tour that stipulates he must do press conferences so it's his choice to do them or not. Why would he do them when he knows that the majority of questions he's asked will be non-golf related and just re-hash topics he's either already commented on or refused to comment on in the past. What will the press ask Tiger - about HH book, his wife, his club throwing, why he thinks he's not winning? All been asked and answered a million times. The press needs to learn that having access to celebrities is a privilege and that onc

  8. Absolutley. Played the other day and somebody in one of the groups ahead of us seemed to hit into every trap on the course and didn't rake a single one. I'd never let anybody I was playing with get away with that.

  9. It didn't say, but I don't think that really matters. You don't figure out that a particular green is faster or slower than another until after you putt and by then its too late. I think having a number is always going to be more helpful than guessing off the practice green. Personally, I don't think a lack of information is ever a bad thing, but I can understand how some would. I typically play on courses that are around 9 (est w/o measurement) and MD National was an 11. Before a round I usually hit balls taking the putter back to my big toe and pace off how far they go, then

  10. the irony is that designers started lengthening courses to make them harder for long hitters. In doing so they have actually created course that were relatively easier for big hitter (compared to shorter hitters).

  11. I really don't care for the Chanelback short irons for some reason. I debated putting the long irons in the bag and 7-E as the PCs, but they don't mesh together at all and ultimately I prefer the PC long irons. To me that's their strength. The 2-6 are just, well, perfect. I might never play the Channelbacks again, but every time I think about which vintage set to haul out, the PCs are on the short list.
