  1. He's the 3rd ranked golfer in the world. If he's finished, so are all but two others. He had a weekend lead in a major...two days ago. You know, LeBron missed a jumper in the gold medal game yesterday. He's probably finished too...

  2. He won 3 PGA tournaments this year. They just turned out to be the wrong ones. Nobody who wins 3 times in a year is finished.

  3. I usually don't post these, but there are some classics here (Law #9 is so true, it hurts) ... LAW 1: No matter how bad your last shot was, you should have Inner Peace knowing that a shittier one is yet to come. This law does not expire on the 18th hole, since it has the supernatural tendency to extend over the course of a tournament, a summer and, eventually, a lifetime. LAW 2: Your best round of golf will be followed almost immediately by your worst round ever. The probability of the latter increases with the number of people you tell about the former. LAW

  4. Too many people here seem to be taking some random person behind a computer's opinion "personally." I'm not going to single any one person out (that serves no purpose), but twisting words around so you can spew venom towards someone else is silly and certainly doesn't influence someone to change their stance on any issue. "...for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" "...those without sin cast the first stone." etc. 1) There is a bid difference between Discernment and Judging another person. 2) We all believe that certain things are r

  5. It clearly says that he was in a STORE parking lot that was next to the golf course range. If there were indeed signs set up at the range stating they weren't responsible for any damage done that would only include their property, not adjacent lots. Now, I do think he was wrong in going after the kid as he was only a person using the facilities and shouldn't be liable for their poor setup. I would have informed the pro shop that my vehicle recieved damage from a golf ball hit on your range and I was not on your property and therefore not subject to your denial of responsibility. If they wo

  6. This thread is totally misnomeric. Newcomers to the site are responding as if Tiger is worrying about others instead of himself. I am pretty sure he cares little about the issue.

  7. The first item listed under Epon is a Wilson 8802 style blade putter for ... wait for it ... $1,050.00. Shorty asked for an example that proves the performance, not confirm that they charge a lot. I don't think he's disputing that they'll pay a lot in Japan, just the claim that they are getting better equipment. P.S. Congrats on your 1000th ... I just got mine too!

  8. Are the prizes you indicate based on the golfer's performance or are these giveaway prizes based on random selection? If they are based on something the golfer does with skill, then Rule 3-2 of the Rules of Amateur Status would define your USGA status: 3-1 Prize Limits a. General An amateur golfer must not accept a prize (other than a symbolic prize) or prize voucher of retail value in excess of $750 or the equivalent, or such a lesser figure as may be decided by the Governing Body. This limit applies to th

  10. Yeah same shaft, same length, AP2's will go higher. Multi material irons with the tungsten weight away from the face and low. AP2's might also have a shallower profile but I haven't compared them that closely.

  11. I think there's an obligation on the part of the golf course to assure those that are instructed to go off 10 have priority when they get around to #1. If not, then perhaps a reduced rate for the inconvenience.

  12. People are getting caught up in RORSmania. He seems to be a fair weather player, and his game was on this week. But his game goes up and down and lacks week to week consistency. That indicates he is human, not Tiger-like. Still, RORS is already a dominant player. But he is young, his life is only beginning, and life is not only golf. We'll see what life's ups and downs has for him. Look at Tiger ... only a few years ago, people were predicting 25 majors for him...

  13. FWIW, I don't buy that. Too relaxed? C'mon. I think he was tired of answering questions about his putting and his swing so he tried to change the topic. I think, too, talk of current Tiger is probably best suited to another thread. I'm not sure what thread exactly, but this one's about the book, and I'm sure we have another more suitable thread for current Tiger talk. If not, we should create one - but it's Tiger talk, so I'm sure there's a thread. :)

  14. I think the biggest challenge the PGA face is its placement on the calendar. It's just WAY too close to the British for the average viewer to care. Viewers simply aren't "dying to see the next major" the way they are in anticipation of the other three. The fact that they change courses every year doesn't help, but that's far from the biggest issue this tournament faces.

  15. The 64 degree is a finesse club ... I don't think anyone would recommend hitting it with a full swing. I've been working on mine recently & like it for little lofted shots to short sided pins around the green & the occasional flop shot if absolutely necessary & with a perfect lie.

  17. Thanks for that , I thought I had wandered into the Masters locker room for a second.. I'm not meaning to be doubtful, just amazed as a newbie to this forum , at the distances people get from clubs . I travel to the States a lot and club golf is high standard in my opinion although I seemed to have missed the very big hitters. Other than very hot and dry conditions where the roll is significant , my experience, not just here, is that Satnav distance measurement has disappointed a lot of us who have found that our drives weren't quite the casual figures we may have quoted after a beer or three

  18. It's actually 3 of the last 5. 3 of the last 4 until today. You need to work on your scientific method if you think that Adam Scott missing a putt is proof they are no advantage, or more correctly, help some players. Did you notice how much his putting improved when he started using a long putter? Also, you are lying. You don't have to throw away wedges yet. And if a rule is changed you can be sure that amateurs will be able to use theirs for a good while yet. And no wonder you have trouble justifying cash outlay to your wife when you are telling fibs, pretending that c

  19. I don't buy it that it's his swing change not fully honed or if it is, it goes back to a mental thing. As iacas stated, it's been two years and if this guy is the same mentally that he used to be, the swing change would be dialed in. He's just not 100% in control anymore and he can't handle it. Also, he's not as revered and feared as he once was. Guys were used to getting their butts kicked by this guy and now that they've seen him bleed, they no longer fear him. The younger generation coming up are hitting it just as long if not longer as well.

  21. No the A-hole was you. If you hit a ball towards or even close to any other player yell "fore". It amazes me how many times balls land within the vicinity and you here the excuse "I knew it wouldn't hit you". BS you have no idea how the ball is going to react when it hits the ground, how it is going to bounce. Give the guy a chance to protect himself, you sure would like that courtesy so why wouldn't you extend it to him? It is like some people are scared to yell fore and by yell I mean loud enough that the possible victim of the errant shot can here it, yell it like you mean it.

  26. Yesterday me and my boy almost became that guy. On #16 with a wall of 4somes in front of us we both hit strong drives that both barely caught a fariway bunker at the corner of a long dogleg left par 4. We got up to our shots and were waiting for the green to clear when I hear 'ting!' and a ball comes slamming into the sand 5 ft from where we are standing. We look back, and hear another shot, and this one comes in right above my head and just clears the lip of the bunker 10 feet from me. So, we hit our shots into the group in front of us on the green and got the hell away from there.

    • Oh pretty! Seems like in prime shape from a 1000 ft.
    • Yup. I lay my hat down next to it.
    • Seems fine. I feel like having played at RNK last year, a little rain isn’t going to bother me.
    • "Anyone who drives faster than you is a maniac! Anyone who drives slower than you is an idiot! - George Carlin" Thanks for the Saturday morning laugh, boogielicious. My old golf partner George Zakarian, may he rest in peace, once told a group of officers at the Fort Eustis golf course, "We may suck, but we suck fast."  Zak and I used to play 18 holes at Norwich Golf Course in Connecticut in two hours, with a cart.  (The 1980's.)
    • Day 5 (12 Jun 21) - Pitch shot work w/9i in the backyard.  Worked on takeaway / follow-thru mechanics, focused on coming straight back with in to out downswing.  Started out with most shots to the right of target and finishing the session with the ball crisp off the club on line or just left of the target.  Finished the drill using 5 different balls just to see how they acted: old “wound” Spalding TopFlite (very soft feeling); a couple of different model modern TopFlites (very clicky off the face); MaxFli (similar to the TopFlites) and a ProV1 (very similar to the wound ball in feel).  Doesn’t mean anything - just fun to hit.
