  1. You realize they basically "flipped" the Pro V1/V1x these days. The 2018 Pro V1 is more like the 2016 Pro V1x (and vice versa). The 2018 Pro V1x is the higher spinning four-piece ball. The only thing that really stayed the same is that the V1 is softer feeling. https://www.titleist.com/golf-balls/pro-v1-pro-v1x#V https://www.titleist.com/golf-balls/pro-v1-pro-v1x#X So the better comparison may have been AVX vs. Pro V1.
  2. Pretty sure even Ben Roethlisberger shot about 80 with no mulligans at Bethpage. Romo wouldn’t need the mulligans if he played a halfway decent round to shoot 79.

    My Swing (erisman20)

    https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos I did it for you, but please embed them in the future. Also, not to be Debbie Downer much, but the camera angles do matter. You'll get a lot better feedback if the cameras angles are good.
  4. Day 107 - May 21, 2018 - Five minutes working on the backswing and downswing. I think I'd been getting a little too deep so I changed the vector/dimensions on the backswing elbow-folding stuff. Still surprises the hell out of me that the feeling coming into impact is that the right palm is facing completely outward, but this is easier to do when the elbow isn't gaining too much depth prematurely. Spent 15-20 minutes on this which, if you know me, is a LONG session. It wasn't consecutive. Gonna play nine holes with @NatalieB later tonight, too, and will GG it if I do.

    12 HS players DQ’d from Tournament

    I don't feel like anyone's doing that. The only types of people claiming that others are placing ALL of the blame on anyone are the @Nwehrman types who are making those allegations of others. Saying that the kids are ultimately responsible does not mean they are "completely, 100%" responsible for ALL of the errors/mistakes that occurred. Really? What are you "seeing here"? The kids are the ones who ultimately goofed. I can understand how it would have happened. Particularly if a coach told them to hit from up there. I can also say that I probably wouldn't have succumbed to that mistake and I'd have likely hit two balls, or insisted on calling a Rules Official. But like I said, I had ordered the Decisions book via snail mail at age 16… so I'm not typical in that regard.

    Florida Mid-Am Ends in (Alleged) Face Punch?

    I don't know. I had added a P.S. at about the same time as you posted which said I originally misread the statement. But I still don't know if that rises to the level of advice. If something is "weird" on the far left side of the hole… does that matter? Is it advice to say "it's not important because you're putting from over there"? I can see how saying something like "the wind won't affect this shot because we're in a valley" is advice. But the above? Still not sure. Anyway, this isn't in the Rules of Golf forum, because we have virtually no information about what "debris" or "damage" there was.

    NHL 2017-2018

    Why "poor Seattle"? The Vegas expansion was a result of a few things. Vegas paid $500M to enter the league. The last expansion teams only paid $80M. That payment guaranteed an earlier chance of winning: two fewer forwards protected, two fewer D protected. GMs were also running scared, and many made some bad deals or trades to ensure that a player they wanted to send away was sent away. Now, Seattle, having this precedent, should expect all but the GMs (who will hopefully be a bit wiser this time around) to be the same: they should expect the same draft rules if they're paying the same fees to enter alone, also. I'm not happy about it myself, either, but I don't think the rules should somehow be different for Seattle. They paid $500M just to enter the league. They got a few advantages for that.
  9. People consistently under-rate their ability to hit a chip shot close and to make a putt. Shooting -4 means you need some birdies, but just hit the green on a few of the par threes, get close enough to scramble on the par fours, don't be a moron (i.e. and take an impossible up-and-down and then stay there hitting that shot for 20 minutes), and most people could shoot -4 with a cart in 5:15.
  10. https://www.golfchannel.com/article/golf-central-blog/cops-called-bizarre-ending-florida-mid-am/ There's the story. What I find interesting is that the "advice" given does not really seem to meet the definition of advice. Huh? P.S. I misread it at first as "If you're gonna make it, you're gonna make it." As in "that won't affect your putt."

    We have very different definitions of "flash in the pan." The history of golf is long. Even in one season, this little run will qualify as nothing more than a "flash in the pan" unless it continues strongly after this.
