  1. i really would love to meet you one day erik. i gurantee we would get along.
  2. this thread is fantastic. everyone has helped to prove my own personal theory that golfers' are totally out of it. good job.
  3. i don't get the point of the article then. to me it makes GD look like GQ and that's that.
  4. Whatever you people want to think is fine by me but the game isn't going to gain any new players or fans because Justin Timberlake is on the cover of Golf Digest. If you want to expand the game to younger people, you'll make the game accessible to them. I.e. basketball is easily accessible and popular to all because it's inexpensive to play. All you need is a hoop (any public park) and a ball and you're set to go. Golf? You need clubs, you need tons of land, you need that land designed into a "course", you need balls, you need etc. etc. more and more. It's not cheap, it's not easily accessible (especially in New York or other urban areas). Justin Timberlake, although now more of a "public celebrity" appeals to young girls and people who listen to hip hop/pop music, not aspiring athletes. My whole point about this is that using him as a way to reach a younger generation is imo, a weak attempt. If you want to bring young people in, you'll make golf a phys ed class in public schools and you'll give kids a chance to see what courses like Westchester Country Club, Apawamis & Doral look like. You'll show them how nice the game is, how elegant and wonderfully challenging it can be. You won't try to lure them in with images of a wealthy pop icon and what he or she has.
  5. perhaps where you're from, self worth doesn't have to do with celebrity but that's not the case in New York. secondly, if i wanted to read about celebrity musicians, i would buy rolling stone, GQ, Details or any one of the thousands of magazines that deal with this kind of crap. i read golf digest because i want to learn about GOLF, not hear about Justin Timberlake or Francis Ford Coppolla or Cameron Diaz, etc. etc. etc. Why was Justin Timberlake picked to play in that match? Why was Tony Romo? They're both sponsored by J. Lindeberg and they're both big name celebrities, right? Uggh, basketball doesn't do this kind of crap to bring people into that game do they? They don't put one of the Backstreet Boys on the cover of SLAM do they? I don't get why Golf has to sell its soul to the devil in order to bring in new players. I started playing golf this year, for the first time, at 23 and i certainly didn't do it because of seeing some celebrity on a golf magazine and btw, if i don't represent the "youth" generation, then nobody does. If you want to bring people into the game, then give them a chance to see it, experience it. Most of the time, golf is way to expensive for people to get involved in so putting Justin Timberlake on a cover of golf digest and defending that with, "it will bring young people into the game" is absolutely retarded.
  6. great, go ahead and keep sucking celebrities off in this bullcrap american celebrity driven culture. By Justin Timberlake (not his real name, guranteed) being put on the cover of GOLF DIGEST, that publication is feeding into the same crap that keeps this country down - if you're not famous, then you are nothing. I would like to see GD put one of YOU, one of the READERS on the cover. that would be a change, instead of putting a small, d*ckish pop singer decked out in J. Lindeberg on the cover. Seriously - if you can relate to Justin Timberlake, than good for you. You're obviously wealthy beyond imagination and have sex with multiple women with STD's. But for the majority of the country, Justin Timberlake has nothing to do with life and nothing to do with GOLF.
  7. I'm living in New York and although Golf Digest says now is the time to join a country club b/c prices are at an all time low, it's not really the case in NYC because the prices here are NEVER low and there are way too many wealthy people so... My question is regarding country club prices in Florida, particularly, the Boca Raton area. Now, i've done some online research on the country clubs down there and a few that have come up are St. Andrew's, Boca West & Broken Sound. I was wondering if anyone was A) a member at one of these or another Boca club and B) how much initiation and membership yearly dues were. Thanks!
  8. IF THIS ISN'T THE FUNNIEST SHOT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS : I hit into a bunker on the side of an EXTREMELY downhill slanted green that's about 75 feet long. Anyways, i'm in this bunker, southwest of the green and i take my 52º wedge and i BLAST the ball, completely missing the sand and pure the ball WAY past the hole and over the green until BANG! my ball hits the top of one of the golf carts of the group ahead of me. I see the ball hit the top of the golf cart and oh my goodness, it's bounced off onto the top tier of MY green and what's it doing?! It's rolling down towards the hole! rolling, rolling, rolling and to two inches! It was the most spectacular shot that i wish was filmed because it will never happen again.
  9. you're basically describing DRILL 2 swings, which is a tried and true method. I dig it.
  10. Is it just me or is this the most awful thing i've ever seen? I read the interview and it barely has ANYTHING to do with golf. It's more about Justin Timberlake and the "obsession" fans have with him and then how he deals with that along with the relationship he has with his stepfather than the article has anything to do with golf. Let me also say that this is a really, really disgusting attempt by golf digest to turn it's magazine into Details or GQ. Come on, let's get real : Golf Digest is a GOLF MAGAZINE and unless they cut the crap, i'm going to move to another publication instantly and never look back.
  11. i play D3 college golf and i shoot in the 80's. In our tournaments, the low guy usually shoots +1 or +2.
  12. I'm not sure if this has ever been suggested (it prob. has) but... why not involve other continents in the Ryder Cup as well? Or perhaps do something like the World Baseball Classic, with each "continent" sending 12 players to play. Basically, i'm saying to do a Ryder Cup with Asia, South America, Africa & Australia being represented as well. If you don't have enough PGA players from those continents, bring the best available pros that are slightly under the PGA from them. What do we think of this?
  13. he isn't going to be scared of villegas, nobody is saying that. what i am saying is that camillo is coming into his own and i think with tiger off the tour for a while, the other players have established some newfound confidence. we'll see...it should be an exciting season next year.
  14. Next season, when Tiger is back, he's going to have some real competition in golf. Camillo just proved his worth to the world and i gurantee will be a real force in the upcoming years. Sergio is nasty, Padraig Harrington is nasty, Anthony Kim is up and coming...it's going to be a real show.
