  2. ... or it's like hitting 95% of greens in regulation but you can't putt. You're admired for your tee-to-green prowess but defiled for your crappy putting. I always try to bring it back to golf...

  3. My guess would be that Ralph Lauren would prefer that you weren't a customer of theirs. How the hell is it a "knee jerk" reaction? Not to mention the fact that their statement was extremely well crafted and considered. I find it pretty amazing to think that in 2021 there are people who are not horrified at the idea of someone who only a few years ago was a teenager using language and implying an attitude that is out of line with any standard of normalcy and decency. If a golfer had made that comment in 1960 it would have been shocking. You don't get a pass these days for being a homophobe

  4. I would like to add one more item of importance(maybe). I went back and re-watched the incident. For whatever reason I thought he blurted out that slur at the time of the putt. He did not. He walked to his next putt and as the commentator was speaking he said it right before his next putt. The context has most certainly changed. Very strange way to express frustration in the context of how it actually played out.

  5. They made a decision based on their business model. While I certainly am no fan of the cancel culture. I totally understand Ralph Lauren's move here. Businesses need to do what's best for business and in this case I think they got it right. My question here is more about what was JT thinking? You have to know that in this day and age everything you do or say will likely end up being recorded. Some may argue that Justin is used to the fan noise drowning out his outbursts. To which I say this is NOT the first tournament he's played under these conditions. Others will say, he deserves a pas

  7. TwoTacos totally stole my thunder over in the Golf Talk forum by asking folks to list the courses they've played. You can look over there as I listed the 165 or so courses that I've played and documented, but my question is a bit more generic and is posted in Playgrounds where it should be! So let me have it, how many do you have under your belt? I have seen a few folks with 300+, maybe even in this forum, not sure. I'd like to hear the following from anyone who cares to post: 1. How many courses have you played? Obviously this can be an estimate if you're not as anal as I am and

  8. Sad. I liked that show. Golf Channel cancels ‘Feherty’ show David Feherty, a 5-time European Tour winner who achieved acclaim as a network TV analyst, says his show ends after 10 years

  9. Hello everyone! I'm happy I was able to find this forum and further my obsession with golf. I have been playing for about 8 years or so with a high handicap that will be (hopefully) dramatically reduced by the end of this year after I take a few lessons. Either way, I really enjoy the game, fellow golfers and the social aspects of the game. There's nothing like a beautiful day, hitting some nice shots and having a cigar with the guys. I'm on a journey of golfing in every state. I've already crossed Alaska off the list and that had to have been the hardest to do. I'm looking forward to hearing

  10. They are about making money, but reputation is also worth a lot of money. If your supply chain involves human rights issues, bribery, exploitation, etc., and your customers find out, you can lose a lot more money than you saved with lower cost raw materials or manufacturing sites. And I mean a lot more. The company I retired from spends considerable resources to determine if the supply chain meets the company’s core values. I was part of those teams. PR is hugely important. Keeping customers is absolutely vital. Premium products can cost more because those supply chain have been vetted.

  13. It's not a single-plane swing or a two-plane swing. It's not related to those. Good golfers rarely over-bend their trail elbow.

  15. To me, the way you post is you want all or nothing. Basically, you want a word that is unrealistic. You can't donate to charity unless you are Mother Teresa because it is demeaning to the people you are donating to if you are not. Here is the rub. What if RL goes to another country that has better LGBT policy for their manufacturing. What if that causes them to lose a ton of market share because their cloths prices go up. What if that causes them to cut funding to LGBT charities and fire employees who may be LGBT because they can't compete as well. I can easily see a scenario where you a

  16. I agree. I didn’t care much about the interviews he did with politicians or athletes from other sports or whatever about golf, and it was clear he ran out of golfers he wanted to talk to much. I don’t know. 150 shows was a lot, really.

  17. That's too bad. I liked the show when I watched it. On the other hand, I didn't watch it all that much. This describes a lot of Golf Channel's programming, haha. I feel like the show would have been better if it was just a few sessions a year with really high profile guys. I was not interested in most of the interviews he did, especially as the show aged.

  21. I finally got a video of my Zip Navigator rolling through what passes for the rough at the Grandview Golf Course today. It might have been easier to get a video of it underwater with a snorkel given the conditions here lately! Anyway, I think it does OK in the rough though I can't imagine why I would want to run it there as a matter of course... It does bounce the clubs around in the thick stuff as you can probably hear. I'm pretty happy with it overall. It seems to have the most trouble in very wet, muddy grass if it's got any speed on. The wheels spin like a truck stuck in the

    • Can't find the article or blog but I remember reading about Paul Wood (PING engineer) talking about how from a physics standpoint, more compact heads worked better for more skilled players. Basically a longer/wider face makes it harder for the better player to square up the face and hit the center. This bit hints at it.
    • Even Tom Brady?  When?  Please, for the love of god, tell me when.  😂
    • Day 8.  Spent ten minutes hitting 8-iron and 6-iron indoors, off a mat, into a net.  Took about as many minutes.  Then, I wandered out back to do Speed Sticks.  I haven't read the rules of that encouragement role, but I should:  my last time (before a few minutes ago) using speed sticks, or at least measuring it, was October 25.
    • Just want to add that it's also related to ankle dorsiflexion. So for the last month before each round I'll take the grip end of a club and press it into the top of my calf as I rehearse the backswing and early downswing. Basically I don't want that angle from the foot to the ankle to change. Puts me in a position to work through the hip joint, which means that knee won't collapse inward. Gives me a good feel and reminder before and even during the round.
