  1. The northern counties around me have done ok. I know many people that have been vaccinated. I also know one of the people who is controlling some distribution of the vaccine. They recently got rid of a “middle man” because it was completely unnecessary. WA went into 1B yesterday. 

  2. After reading an article about the documentary and the recent stuff with JT, it's hard to understand at what point you go from being an ordinary golfer to an entertainer.  Tiger started as an entertainer.  He knew the game he had to play.  I'd be lying if I said what happened in his personal life didn't matter to me.  But, after watching the father son challenge, I like that it seems that his priorities have been switched.

    I try to keep it about golf, but who you choose as an idol dives deeper into personal values.  But if the person is an entertainer and is putting on a show while playing a sport, you never really know the values.

    This is still not what's being asked. The poll isn't asking if it's okay that he cheated or something, it's asking if you feel differently about the person. The question doesn't even bring up the rules stuff.

    Fair enough.  Then still no, I don’t feel differently.  I feel sorry it happened, if it did, but it doesn’t change how I feel about him.

  4. I had to think about it for a moment after responding no.  Cheating is cheating, emotion about it doesn’t really matter.  If Reed was abused, then I feel bad for him, sure.  But, as a touring pro, you don’t get a sympathy excuse for breaking the rules. I feel like it might be sort of heartless, but everyone needs to have the same opportunity and consequence on the tour regardless of background. So my opinion of him doesn’t change.  He is a great golfer, but annoys me at times.

    Where are they going to move it to? I've read that it should stay in NJ, at least them money that would have gone to local businesses will stay in the state.

    I read an article that said many courses have reached out to say they can make it happen. Not sure where, but they certainly won’t have any trouble finding a suitable venue.

    LOL, it's a long season...  :beer:
    Your well aware of your slight lead currently....  

    I won't go as far as saying "You STOLE the first segment"
    It might cause a crisis among PGA Tour FG Supporters and cause a RIOT !!!  

    You guys are sitting way too comfortable up there. Just 1 off event from you guys is enough for me to take the lead. 😁

    I saw a bunch of articles “confirming” that today.

    Then I read that Butch denies it...

    As far as “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” ...there seems to be a lot of smoke right now.

    I don’t know what to believe

    Harmon said no in reference to being his new coach, as Cameron remains in that position.  So maybe Spieth still saw him, but just for a second pair of eyes?

    The golf major will be moved, according to a report.


    I know that golf was a refuge for Trump, but this year we saw gains in rounds played.  Hard to say how 2021 will proceed, but I don't think golf will decline because of Trump.  Many presidents on both sides have played the sport while in office.  That being said, this issue is a bit different, because Trump directly benefits.  I think moving it is a good idea.  One of our core values is integrity.  We should hold ourselves to that.

    A summary would be nice.

    Basically, in his experience measuring players, he said the Blue radar that comes with the set typically measured 3-4mph faster than what trackman said.  He didn't see any gains by swinging opposite handed, so swinging just one way is fine. He showed some numbers of PGA Tour players he worked with, and that they swung the red stick 1-2% faster than the driver instead of the 10% SuperSpeed says.  He then goes into some mental stuff and the "why/how" for speed training, which had been said here in the other topic.

  10. I had been thinking about this or close to this recently. Since my job is basically on the course, I am out there 6 days a week. I don’t play every day as much as I mess around and practice. I probably play a “real” round (or 9 holes) 2 times a week, if that. If I wasn’t out working 6 days a week, I’d probably play 3-4.

    Like I said... our super is the Superintendent Nazi.  And, to his credit, he keeps the course in really good shape but he has this blind spot.  And nobody can speak against him... not even the Director of Golf.

    Well we just won Top NOI improvement, Top GM and Top Super this year out of PGC. Lifers say they have never seen the course in this good of shape before. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a little bit of play to make conditions better. It works for us. 

    I don’t mind playing with others so long as they don’t expect advice on every hole. 

  12. I was messing around with a buddy today swinging as hard as we could regardless of contact. Max driver speed was 131mph, and green speed stick got to 140mph (using super speed radar). Most driver swings were around 126/127mph. Honestly couldn’t believe the numbers. Not sure if I can improve on that. What felt like normal driver swings in the beginning were 118mph. At the end of the session, I tried to slow down and go for contact, and hit a good one at 123mph. I wouldn’t expect to keep that but if I could swing normal and get 120-122 consistently, that’d be awesome!

    Is there a platform like an Indeed or LinkedIn to apply for these type jobs or do I have to directly contact them to see if they need anyone? I tried looking for them on Google and couldn't find any of them that fit this description and is also located close to where I live.

    I know of some places that have used Indeed. Best way is to visit courses in person to ask, check for golf management companies in the area, and sometimes pga.org jobfinder. Best time to ask about openings is a couple months before season starts or right in the beginning. It never hurts when you are out to play or practice to ask about jobs too. 

  14. At a golf course and having no experience, nearly everyone starts as outside staff. That includes but not limited to, cleaning, parking, and gassing/hooking up carts, picking the range, cleaning bathrooms (maybe), cleaning the outside common areas, marshaling the course, and sometimes being a starter. Another option is maintenance, but that involves being at the course at 4-5am and there maybe an age requirement. If you try to apply at a country club, there may be other options.
