  1. And again I will gladly state that I am glad these type of people are so transparent. If you respect/disrespect me based on my clothing then your opinion is of no value to me. And I won't have to worry about how you treat me as I will not be around you. And for the record, this is coming from someone who wears slacks on the course. But I play with plenty of people who don't and have a great time doing so.

  2. .. No it's not dirty. For the first time ever I up and decided I'm going golfing today as a single and they put me up with two women and a guy. Needless to say I had an absolute blast. Not sure what it is but when I'm playing with new partners I seem to play better than usual. Don't know why I didn't do this earlier, was always worried people thought its creepy to have some single pair up with them.. Met new people, had an awesome round and enjoyed the outdoors :D Do you guys enjoy playing with strangers?

  4. You lost me here jimmyc. If the course allows jeans then that is appropriate clothing for that course, regardless of what you or anyone else thinks. At a wedding, some people wear tuxedo's, some business suits and some just wear sports coats with slacks. Should we treat those in sports coats as low class because they are the most casually dressed at the wedding? Not sure if you've shopped for jeans lately, but they've come quite a way since Levi's and Lee were the only ones making them. Price tags on some of these jeans are well beyond what most people pay for suits. I get yo

  5. But I see it occurring on both sides of the aisle. The exact mentality that you see people having for the ACA or Medicare or welfare, I see in corporations and Wall Street and farmers. They are looking for handouts and breaks as well. But they proceed under the guise of "job creators" or some other hooey. They put forth a sham that if you don't give them giants breaks in taxes or bailouts, or crop price fixing and subsidies, which they say they are entitled to, then all hell will break loose. I am all for reducing the cost of government, as long as it is equally spread out. But I w

  7. Do you know what irony is? In the very same sentence, you complain about being called names (which I would probably have agreed with you on, "tea bagging" is not exactly a nice phrase) yet in the same post you do the exact same thing! If you're going to call him a socialist, then you get to remain a tea-bagger. If you're giving below the fray, then be prepared to be taking below the fray. Calling a liberal a socialist is about as accurate as calling a conservative an anarchist. Personally, I prefer that other, "horribly offensive," name that somehow turned into a negat

    • They could leave the Masters bubble and focus on total career achievements, but maybe that deviates from the intention. Eventually they may have to choose players who only won once. «First on the tee, Patrick Reed!». Or maybe they’ll be off with the whole thing. There aren’t that many multiple winners these days. Phil, Bubba and Tiger are the only ones with wins this millennia.
    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.
    • Yeah, @iacas, here’s another article echoing the last one you posted: CDC Studies 'Breakthrough' COVID Cases Among People Already Vaccinated COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective but don't always provide perfect protection. Some...  
    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
