  1. I've never looked at a lease because I thought they always had fairly low maximums on mileage. Is that still a thing? With Covid, I don't drive hardly at all anymore and for who knows how much longer, but prior to that I believe that both of our cars were driven in the vicinity of 25k miles per year.
  2. If I'm playing with buddies, it's typically a combination of A, B and C. I'd usually go with yardage and lean towards the 6600-6800 range, then peek at rating/slope to make sure it doesn't stand way out, then if my buddies really want longer or shorter for whatever reason, I'm always fine with that. I'm not going to go golfing with friends and insist on playing blue tees while they're all playing white. If I'm playing with my son, dad or father-in-law, 3 people who will 100% not be playing the same tee as me, then I go by yardage. This is also the situation where I might be more inclined to challenge myself with a little longer set of tees since we're already playing different sets anyway.
  3. Being that it's mid-November this would be the one Masters where that would actually make sense. Or "Stuffing!!!!!!!" or "Cranberry Sauce!!!!!' (But not "Yams!!!) blech. 😉
  4. I haven't taken any more videos since those last ones, and I haven't been practicing a super ton, however, I have been playing on average about once a week. I am working on a just a couple of things as I play, basically the same as above as Mike showed me, plus one other thing: Less knee bend and higher hands at setup A feeling of going back in the takeaway rather than tilting forward A longer backswing. This seems to keep me in sequence better and inhibits my tendency to pull hook the ball, which I am wont to do on occasion. 🙂 Overall, I'm hitting the ball well and scoring well; but I need to temper my excitement on that because I've basically only been playing one course, that is my favorite as far as scoring is concerned. Oh, and I bought my first new club in ages last week; a new 60* with more bounce than my current 58* so hopefully I'll have a little more confidence to use it more than the old one.
  5. Agreed. By the same token, I have no energy to care much about the argument in favor of the ball rollback either. Similar to the square grooves, the long putter, the flagstick, etc, if they did ever decide to roll back the ball or bifurcate, it's not going to be a big deal. We're going to move on and keep on playing and liking the game just like we do now, and basically forget about this like we've done all the others.
  6. Exactly my first thought too lol. I'm like "I'm gonna guess it's 72 aaaaaaaaaand 72" 😉
  7. 6 1,2,3,4 (mostly 2 though) 5. The course I play the most right now is what some would call a "shooting gallery." It's entirely parallel holes with minimal barriers. The only reason it's a not a 6 is because of the par 3's. (The other course I like and play, although haven't been playing lately, has zero adjacent holes) 2
  8. The tweet where the guys says Player knows nothing about course design makes me chuckle. My absolute least favorite (well maintained) course in my area that I’ve played is, to me, very poorly designed and is a signature Gary Player course haha. And, yes, it has some trees.
  9. You forgot that part where they had a camera 5' in front of them showing them walk off the tee towards the fairway while drinking said bottle of water. All I can think of when they do that is how freaking awkward that must seem for the players. Obviously they get used to it after awhile, but man it's weird. They're just walking - why do we need to watch that for several seconds at a time? If they don't want to show us the other golfers, then at least just show more scenery or something.
  10. DeChambeau is a weird one for me. For me, he's the biggest current "needle-mover." I love that he's at the top because I love watching him play and his outside the box thinking fascinates me. But man alive does he seem like an insufferable jerk. I was on the road during the day today so I'm watching the replay now, and in the last couple of hours I've lost track of the amount of times I've heard himself proclaim how great of a shot he just hit. Combine that with his whole "my brand" rant after the issue with the cameraman several weeks ago and he's easy to dislike. But I'm not going to root against him because I want to watch! 🙂
  11. Hey now! (Not possible - there actually are some things in there that are in focus.)
  12. I have absolutely no idea. I presume bunker hole out, just cuz odds? But honestly I only actually remember one bunker hole out, and it was really recent, but that's gotta be just because I didn't bother to remember, not because it hadn't happened. I think??
  13. Speaking of that game, here is a tweet that perfectly ties it to this thread:
  14. Hyperbole, in general, is basically their thing right? I mean, if we all had a nickel for every time they said “he has such imagination around the greens” just because he read the break properly or used the available slope to feed his ball to the hole, we’d all have a lot of nickels! Or how many times they overplay how hard the lie in the rough is, or seem to forget they’re the best in the world, and act all shocked when they hit good shots from seemingly bad spots? 🙂
