    Watching The Pros Putt With the Pin In…

    Yeah it’s a one off and the stick probably has nothing to do with it either way, but I was just referencing Erik’s comment that pointed out the stick maybe helped him aim. On that putt it obviously didn’t. :)

    Who Is Your "Golf Villain"? And Why?

    Goldfinger ... because he's a cheater. (But not as good of a cheater as James Bond)😄

    I have no angle here - but I did see Scott miss a 16-18" putt on Sunday with the flag in. (hole 5 I think??) I like this ... reminds me of the beginning of The Fugitive. 😉

    What Should a 5 Year Old Focus On?

    Fun.

    Do You Play with a Phone in Your Pocket?

    No. If I ride, it's in the cubby in the cart, and if I'm walking, it's in my bag with my keys and wallet. My pockets, while golfing, only have items pertinent to the round; ball marker, repair tool, chapstick in the left, tees in the right, glove in the back while putting.

    NFL 2018-19

    I just read an article showing this information,and it goes even a step further. Not only do NFL teams winning the toss win just a hair over half of the time but look at the stat regarding my, and many other peoples, suggested solution of doing it like college does it: So if we are trying to lessen the affects of the coin toss, it seems like we should stick with the status quo. However, if we just forget that part, and just go for entertainment value and excitement, the college way definitely delivers that. Here's the article: Coin toss would remain important if OT rule is tweaked If the NFL tweaks its overtime rule, guaranteeing both teams a possession, the coin toss remains as important if not more important. As it stands now, the team winning the overtime coin toss has an obvious advantage. Score... Now I'm trying to imagine the buzz we'd be seeing this week on this topic if the Chiefs won the toss and drove down for a touchdown. I think it's fairly safe to say that there wouldn't be any. :)

    Why stop at the refs, why not replace the players too? Remember this game:

    Possibly. It's also possible that it's just an extremely difficult sport to officiate? I dunno - I'm certainly not champing at the bit to give it a go (and I like refereeing soccer). I think that it's just also likely that:

    You could almost** make an analogy to baseball here, I feel, to demonstrate the absurdity of the NFL overtime rules. It would be like saying, if the visiting team hits a grand slam in the top of the 10th, the game is over immediately, but if they score only a couple of runs then the game goes to the bottom of the 10th. And after the 10th, then it's just whoever scores first. **It's 100% impossible to score on defense in baseball, but only highly improbable in football, hence the "almost." I don't know why they don't just go with the college style OT. Everybody gets equal possessions and if anybody is ever ahead at the end of each pair of possessions, its over. That said, I still like this OT style better than the previous one where teams could win the toss, get one or two first downs and advance barely beyond midfield, and then kick a 58 yarder to win. It may be only marginally better, but it is better. TBH, that sounds like an excuse he made up after the fact to sound less shitty ... if they think the ball is tipped they would be adamant about it at the time with their hand signals so people were fully aware of the reasoning behind the lack of the flag. On top of that, there's no reason not to throw a flag on a tipped ball, because that IS reviewable.

    The non-call was certainly awful, however, IMO it stands out solely because of it's timing within the game. I don't believe anybody would be talking about it as "the worst call in history" (or thereabouts) if it happened in any other quarter, or even 5-6 minutes earlier in that quarter. It would be mentioned, but mostly as an afterthought, and yet it could have potentially been just as game-changing. That said, go Rams! 😉

    2019 Hawaii Open (Sony Open)

    16 is the one with the palm tree “W” behind it and the 17th is that really tough par 3 on the ocean. And it’s “always” been like that as far back as I can remember. But for some reason I had it in my head that last year they swapped nines, which seemed odd to me since those two holes down the stretch are the famous ones. Am I crazy?

    I think I’m going to have to pass - turned out I have strep throat and so I’ve been home out of work since Wednesday. Going to have to do a lot of catching up next week at work. Have fun out there guys and gals and take some photos for us!

    I’ve got almost a week, I suspect health will be fine then ... it’s more a matter of whether or not I fall too far behind at work in the next day or two. :) Ive never played Silverrock and ha e always wanted to and Classic Club became one of my favorite courses after we played it last time.

    @DaveP043 I was available to join you either Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday, however, I’m feeling quite sick today and want to get over it before I commit to anything. I’ll have to play it by ear for now so dont hold a spot for me yet. Thanks!

    Yes, rangefinders eliminate the need to pace distances. 🙂. Which reminds me, mines about crapped out and I need a new one!
