  1. Have you heard that I went to Chicago Public School? Therefore math is hard.

  2. As for getting paired with "Problem Golfers" in my league I kept getting sent out with this one guy who was clueless on pace of play and "Ready Golf". It seemed I was sent out with him almost every week. This year I am taking over the league and mentioned this to the prior president and he said he did that intentionally because I had the balls to tell the slow player get ready & hit. This year I will be sending that slow player out with last year's president each week. Turnabout is fair play, right?

  4. @Colins69 You should open a "Return Request" and then if the seller disputes the request, you then will open a dispute. When you open the dispute, indicate the reason "Dent" along with "Item not as described" and provide a few pics of the dent. ( I usually include a screenshot of the listings, description ) Ebay is very good about protecting Buyers and will force the Seller to accept the return. The process will take a few days.

  5. In tournament play, I always just accept what I get. Typically, anyone playing in a tournament in the USA has a decent understanding of golf etiquette. Those that don't are politely corrected. Pace of play can sometimes be an issue no matter the skill level. Unless a player's pace places the group in danger of a penalty, I just accept it. My experience has been that 98% of the players with whom I an grouped are a nice collection of people. Fortunately, the 2% can be mostly avoided or ignored during the round. So yes, you are alone, at least in my personal experience.

  6. There is a difference in looking and making really bad comments. I understand that our eyes are drawn to look at certain areas of the body. That is just human nature. Its completely different in using it as an excuse to justify really bad behavior. Its completely different to use it as a way to demean the opposite sex.

  12. 🤣 Maybe if they want to claim losses for tax purposes. I doubt people are going to flock to a company for a job or their product just because they paid women golfers the same as men golfers. I’d say most women golfers don’t even watch the LPGA Tour. It’s certainly a small sample size and an anecdote, but none of the female golfers I know care about women’s golf except for their own. When they watch golf, they’re watching Tiger and the guys.

He holds the record of 7 points. He has practised 4 fold more than me. BTW he also uses the pointed elbow technique... https://youtu.be/M1_WeO_ZDQA

  21. I'm sorry I'm down on the USA but after getting shafted by eBay and PayPal it's left a very sour taste in my mouth, I also buy clubs online to try and if I don't like them I sell them online. So far I'm in front because I research the club and say why it suits and A B or C grade player, fortunately most don't do that so I can buy cheap. Appreciate your kind words, cheers Colin

  22. And again, Wie was almost certainly wearing a skort, no underwear on display for anyone. And now I'm sorry, but I'm picturing Beavis and Butthead sitting in a golf cart, smoking cigars, and whispering to each other about women's underwear.

  23. Yep. You’d think I would know better. 😀 I don’t disagree that Rudy’s comments were ill advised, but Wie’s outrage rings a bit hollow given that she showed off her underwear on an international forum in the first place.

  24. YW @SEMI_Dufferand I will let you know about the Putter Fitting after this coming Sunday. I think your plan above, telling him what you have been looking at but not limiting the scope of the fitting, will work. My guess is he will start with either your current clubs or those you are looking at as the initial baseline he is working to improve upon. Almost forgot, I have no preference for one fitter over another. The fittings have been spread out over a number of years so really do not even recall the name of the first two.

  25. I have had an Iron Fitting and 2 Driver Fittings at Carl's over the years (Bloomfield Hills locaton). On Feb. 28th I am getting a Putter Fitting there. If you can't guess, I am satisfied with them. My experience has been that they work to find what is truly correct for you and do not just push a specific brand or the higher price-stuff. They will ask you if you have any preferences and I have always declined to offer a preference, I want to be open minded and let the numbers tell me what I need, not just confirm what I think I want. They will give you 30 days to make up your mind on a

  26. There's a difference between noticing an attractive person, and making a lewd comment about their attire to a wide, public audience. There are many sports where athletic attire is revealing of the athlete's figure (men and women both). Swimming, diving, gymnastics, women's tennis, MMA/boxing, track and field, soccer, basketball, beach volleyball, volleyball, women's golf, football, and many more. Maybe Michelle Wie wears skorts because it is the most comfortable thing for her to play golf in, and has nothing to do with wanting to look attractive to any men or women who happen to be w

  28. The difference comes when an old pervert thinks that its appropriate to discuss the attractive woman's underwear on a nationally distributed podcast. And again, Wie has always worn "skorts" as far as I remember, so the only underwear visible was in Mr. Giuliani's fevered imagination.

  31. Since playing 9 holes on December 24, I've been able to hit balls outside once. Some of that is because of the weather, some of that is having two small kids. But it's been a frustrating couple of months for me, golf wise. It's good to be heading into March and April, but those also tend to be the most frustrating months because it's warm but then snows. They are also two of our snowiest months. Anyways, I'm starting to get that itch again...

  33. It would be altruistic because the company that sponsors this would be losing money. 2 things a lot of people don't understand about companies who sponsor events. 1 - The company sponsoring the event knows if they are getting ROI or not. 2 - Companies don't have a pile of money sitting in the corner to ride out decisions that don't create ROI. I work closely with 2 companies who have or had sponsored NASCAR. Both of them know exactly how much ROI they are getting on their sponsorship. 1 of them continued to sponsor NASCAR even after having to have lay-offs. Peopl

  35. I'm going to reiterate what I said earlier. If your "old man" doesn't want coaching, that's cool. The most important thing is to enjoy the time you have with him. When I started golfing my "old man" had been playing for years. (Unlike your dad, mine's a terrible golfer. Always has been.) I took golf trips with him. We traditionally played every year together on our birthdays. (We share the same birthday, so it was a cool tradition.) Like you and your dad, we had running jokes as well. I always mocked his huge-ass-golf-bag that had like 20 or more clubs in it. "Dad, the ru

  38. I too, have ebay'ed both purchased and sold many clubs. I've only ever had one issue. That was probably 10 years ago and it got resolved without nearly the rig-a-more-all that it appears you are going through. To be completely honest, I like buying and selling on ebay. I often like to try out clubs and not sure if I actually want to stick them in the bag. A good example when Taylormade came out with the GAPR clubs. I thought "That's interesting, I'd like to try one for a while." So, I waited around and eventually what I wanted showed up used on ebay. I think I spend $120 or so. The

  41. Good grief. If a woman, or a man for that matter, dresses in a manner designed to be attractive to others and to emphasize their own physique, we’re now told that it’s impolite to notice? Looking isn’t even remotely connected to the type of physical assault you’re talking about. It’s not steps away. It’s a planet away. And yes, if I dress up, I am hopeful that my wife, or anyone else interested, looks at me in appreciation.

  42. When I got out of the car to pu a pizza today, the clear skies, full sun, a bit of melting snow, I got a reminder that spring is coming. I felt like I could see light at the end of the tunnel, with only 1 week left in February. Great weather today.

  43. If you had read her response, you might have noticed that she discusses her choice of attire, the Nike skirts with shorts built in. These "skorts" are pretty common for women golfers of all ages, including my own wife. The vision of "panties" is apparently a product of Mr. Giuliani's imagination. That he needed to mention "panties" speaks to his take-away from the day. He could certainly have told the story, said that the paparazzi interest in their group was based on Wie's putting style, without going down the "panty" route.

  45. This right here, all my opinion. It's based on what I believe to be true, based on some relevant facts, and it's said with full understanding that none of us can truly know what would happen, so any of the future-based stuff is speculation. Educated guessing. I've said a few times the only pro-rollback argument that I think carries weight (with me only, I'm not speaking for or against anyone else) is one of resource usage/sustainability. If golf is becoming resource intensive (beyond what it obviously already is, as I'll often joke about how you could fit four baseball fields on a good si

    • Day 60 - Slow swings making sure I fully turned my hips. 
    • Note from practice 2021-03-05: Working on palmar flexion as priority piece. Slow rehearsals of transition move and Covid-19 day-4 drill all seem to look fine, with clubface aligned to my spine at A6 (slightly toe down). When I move to full speed, and look at swings on film with Mirrorvision, the face is vertical. This leads to a flip/shove to close the face at impact, or I can hold off the flip (if I think about it hard enough before the swing), and leave the face a bit open and hit what I assume would be a push/cut. I had a mini-realization watching the videos and doing some rehearsals. When I rehearse the palmar flexion move, my forearms arms don't have nearly as much tension as when I am making a full speed swing, and my wrists move freely. I did some rehearsals simulating the tension in my forearms that I feel with full speed swing and tried to palmar flex my wrist and I could barely do it. I did some more rehearsals/Covid-19 day-4 drills, and then hit some balls with full swings with the conscious thought of less forearm tension, and suddenly I could feel the palmar flexion move. It was too dark to get any video, but I'm going to record tomorrow and see if the clubface looks any different at A6 compared to video from today.
