  1. Huh??
  2. Since that post, yeah, I played in a few more events. I didn't sign up this year, however, as I plan on getting my fill of tournament golf through some local amateur events and some club events. I'm still a fan, though. :)
  3. Well done Kyle. But you attributed your sword sheathing celebration to Seve? Don't you mean Chi Chi??? I'm gonna try and sneak out this week and make mine too. (I've had the flu for the last week and a half or whatever - seems like its been forever - but am finally getting over it)
  4. Yeah I agree. At first I thought he and Vegas were sitting pretty today and then those guys just started throwing darts. Almost made this course look easy.
  5. I was wrong - they're getting some in!!!
  6. Slight bit of confusion here, I think. OP is referring to a team event that is going to take place in May. He didn't mention - although a couple below him, I think, assumed he did - that this week in Australia is also a new event that involves 6 hole matches. 54 holes of individual stroke play to pare down to 24 players, top 8 get a bye to second round of match play, where match play is 6 hole matches all conducted on Sunday. Should be a lot of fun.
  7. Probably won't be playing much, if at all, until at least Saturday afternoon.
  8. Great answer. My special gift to the wife this year was ... to get the flu this week and stick her with the majority of the parenting duties. How's that for chivalry?
  9. Ya know, it's kinda funny you mention that in this thread. Because I've always found it odd how we use the terms interchangeably. I mean, I get "trolling" ... the person is throwing out some kind of bait fishing for people to take a bite. Then we also use the noun 'troll,' as in a creepy short creature who lives under a bridge. Just always found it odd, that's all. And, duh, of course 'golfing' is a word.
  10. Ok, then the problem here is posting in this rules thread in the first place. :P
  11. Isn't that, like, EXACTLY, what they were saying?
  12. Don't get why you disagree with him. He said "many," not "most" or "all." There are a ton of athletes, and MANY of them are able to become successful businessmen, while at the same time, MANY of them are dumb as rocks. Both of you guys are right because the ideas are not mutually exclusive.
  13. I saw the stat about the age similarities, but they gave another star too: this is Jordan's 9th win and his 100th start ... when Tiger hit 100 starts, he had 28 wins. TWENTY EIGHT! However, I stipulate your point about the field strength - there's no getting around that. :) P.S. He looked like 2015 this weekend.
  14. "When people say to me how do you get through life or each day, it’s the same thing. To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. Number three is you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special." -Jim Valvano
  15. Product Name: Half-Cup Putting Aid Product Type: Putting Training Aid Product Website/URL: Cost: $12.99 Ratings (out of 5): Quality: 4 Value: 4 Effectiveness: 5 Durability: 3 Aesthetic Appeal: 4 My Member Review Pros: Narrows focus while practicing. Small & Light, can take it to the course if I wanted to. Cons: Have to squeeze it into my home putting green to make it fit. This could be considered a pro since it narrows your focus even more, but I'm calling it a con because I suspect it will limit the durability of the product since it's just plastic. (The first pic below is with it just sitting on top of the cup. The next shows my cup, and the last is with the half cup squeezed into the cup.) Getting the balls out of the hole are awkward without removing the half cup first. Conclusion: It's a clever concept. I don't remember who said it, but I believe in the concept of "the smaller the target, the smaller the miss." So I get that practicing on a tiny hole will help your game. Hitting straight practice putts on a regular hole from 5 feet away - if you're dropping some of them in the side, then you're missing those putts from just 6 or 7 feet. Yet, because you're making them, you may not realize that. With the half cup, there is no question. If you don't hit the center of the hole, then it's not going in. I like it. I won't bother to take it to the course with me, even though I can, but it will live on my home practice green and get used frequently.
