  1. POLL: Is Jordan Spieth a Whiny Baby?

    In this particular context? Christ, that's gibberish. You haven't a clue on that score, sorry. Look (and I appreciate this should be a PM, but I really can't be bothered) - you're the site owner, please ban me into perpetuity, forthwith. Life is too short. Goodbye.
  2. POLL: Is Jordan Spieth a Whiny Baby?

    I genuinely loved watching Tiger in his prime. I am bemused by the extent to which his name is somehow introduced into practically every single tour-related thread whenever I read this site, often under the most tenuous of circumstances. I understand the direct comparisons with the other greats of the game, both pre and post Tiger (the Nicklaus thread makes sense, for example). I have a friend at work who regards himself as a bit of a musicologist. A very nice guy, but unfortunately he is also a massive Beatles fan. Therefore every single solitary conversation about music, alas, is quantified against the (in his mind) unquestioned brilliance of the Beatles...It gets a bit dull. Time moves on. Sometimes it feels as though Tiger is to golf as the Beatles were to music. And both, I think, belong to history, not the present. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be discussed, but sometimes they are discussed too much, in contemporary terms.
  3. POLL: Is Jordan Spieth a Whiny Baby?

    I disagree, but if that's an important topic of debate for some, then so be it, I suppose. I think Tiger Woods is completely irrelevant to any question of whether or not Jordan Spieth is whiny.

    Jordan Spieth wins the British Open, and a significant topic of conversation at the Sand Trap immediately turns to Tiger Woods. I don't know whether this is simply indicative of Tiger's greatness a decade ago, a common infatuation to be found at the Sand Trap, or, most likely, a combination of the two.

    This is a new experience. Rooting for Jordan Spieth. I hope he wins this. If he does, I see him going on a major run of majors...

    Solidarity, brother. The honey-do list stays stuck to the fridge door until this is over.

    I wish I could fathom when a "no-name" golfer becomes a "name." Perhaps it happens when he shoots a 62 at the Open Championship?

    Chances are he'll have a Monty Moment tomorrow. Some bystander or photographer will get on Ian's nerves and next thing he'll be in the rough and whining.

    Bubba offering a mature, professional response to the playing conditions then? There's a man who'll never win a major outside of the American south - or, more likely, on a sunny, Sunday April afternoon in Georgia.

    Looks like Bubba might be putting something together. The thought of Bubba trying to give a winner's speech on non-American soil rather intrigues me. I sort of hope he's still in the conversation on Sunday afternoon.

    He's certainly on a consistent streak this season.

    Speaking as an Englishman, I wish Spieth well under these circumstances. May he go on to win the Open.
  13. Least Offset Cavity-Back Irons?

    For cavity back / GI irons with minimal offset, look no further than Tour Edge Exotics - it's something they're noted for. Current ones are: http://www.touredge.com/products/exiirons.asp Tour Edge irons often sell for a lot less money than the big names, despite being every bit as good. I'm currently playing with Exotics XCG3s from around 2010. Nice clubs, very little offset.
