    Hole in 1 on a par 3 course

    Personally, I think for me to count it, the hole would have to be 100+ yards. Basically, I would need to make a full swing.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    69 today, finally got it going after playing my 3 worst rounds of the year the past couple weeks. Did not play spectacularly well on the front, three putted the first two greens, but birdied #9 to shoot 37. Finally got it going on the back and birdied 11, 12, 13, and 15 for 32. Had good looks at a couple more, that didn't fall. Overall, very happy with the round, especially the back.

    Different Handicap for Walkers?

    I can't see how walking vs riding would make that big of a difference in scoring unless there was an obvious disability involved. I walk probably 65% of the time and I have never noticed a difference in my ability to score. I do see a difference in my level of enjoyment as I prefer to walk.

    Tiger vs. Phil Match Play Showdown for $9M

    Never understood this stance. I bet you my house if you were given the opportunity to play for $9 million on pay per view you wouldn't have one problem teeing it up. Yet because these guys have made some money in the past using their god given talent and hard work, they are greedy? They are providing entertainment, if you don't want to pay to watch then don't, but to resent someone for making money sounds petty and begrudging. I can't watch because I will be on the road, but I would pony up $20 to check it out, why not?

    Tee box etiquette

    It's your tee time don't let someone play through on the first hole. Perhaps it's the fact I am not afraid of confrontation, but I would have waited and hit whatever club I wanted. You don't even have to be rude about it, just tell those guys to can it, you don't want to hit into the group in front of you. I mean it's common courtesy, and teeing off 30 seconds later for the sake of safety isn't going to matter, you'll just be waiting longer on your second shot.

    Playing with Irons Only

    First off hitting driver is fun. Playing a round without hitting any type of wood sounds...well...boring as hell. I hit my 2 iron an average of 267 yards (GAME GOLF), and when I really catch it out to nearly 300. I have people tell me all the time, "If I could hit a 2 iron as far as you I would never hit driver." I always ask why. The closer to the green I can get the better off I am, period. I'd rather hit a wedge out of the rough than a 5 iron out of the fairway on any day. As Erik already said, you are severely limiting your ability to shoot lower scores by giving up on you driver and 3 wood. The longer the course the more it will affect you. If I were you I would put in a little work on my longer clubs until they are not as much of a glaring weakness. Fairways hit is a non-stat.

    Do You "Slow Drop" the Flagstick?

    I would have to ask why? Does dropping the pin from 3 feet above the ground harm the green? I mean its not like I am throwing it like a javelin across the green. Using Tiger Woods as an example of how to act is a bit dangerous...I like to tip my waitstaff, and I cannot afford all those hookers. Just sayin' 😜
  8. I liked his attitude, unfortunately he had about as much chance of growing a third arm as he did competing on the Mackenzie Tour. I know the family of a kid on the Mackenzie Tour this year. His stroke average of 70.79 was good enough to make 2 out of 10 cuts and a whopping $2240 (CAD$). @Diece can't break 80 consistently.

    Hybrid VS Driving Iron

    I carry a driving iron because I have never found a hybrid that didn't have a big left miss in it. Basically, for me, hybrids are hook city. My driving iron has a better trajectory as well, and I can hit it off the deck as well if I need to.

    Draw vs Fade: Which is Cooler & Reliable

    You can talk to a fade, but a hook won't listen! I voted fade for both because its my natural shot shape and I am super cool. 😜
  11. So he doesn't have any higher aspirations? Do you know this man? I disagree, if you are on a Tour like that you don't want the reputation you were complicit with someone who has been branded a cheater.
  12. You know as I read more about this, maybe she did know the rule and just blatantly cheated. She didn't want a rules official there because of this: She was just trying to get the heck out of there before it was virtually certain the ball was moved.
  13. I disagree, he has his reputation to lose. He is a regular caddy on the LPGA and Symetra Tours, you don't want your name associated with a cheater.
  14. Here's the ARTICLE you are talking about. Talk about putting the caddy in a bad place. If the events actually unfolded like he said they did, she's a cheater. He told her to call a rules official and she basically told him to shut up about it. I don't imagine he will be caddying for her again anytime soon. Probably a good thing you could starve caddying for her.
  15. Had a discussion about all of this yesterday with my Sunday foursome. I guess Bryson has more pull than I do. I mentioned I would be leaving the pin in starting next year and they immediately started with their normal it deflects the ball rhetoric until I mentioned DeChambeau doing it. They then changed their tune. I don't know why they don't believe me?
