    Righty
  1. Rory threw a fit because he was paired with Ben Crane. Slow as molasses. Big Ro walked off the green, I believe at Congressional before Ben putted out. Whaaa!!!.....Woody Austin is a big blowhard. Yeah, right they both want Tiger. Then there is Mike Weir, another fussy pants. And Tommy Armour III. Hey, fold that collar down and get a hair cut. I used to not like Monte, but he needs a major, but not the masters or us open. Furyk is pretty cool. If you have a bad slice, try to copy his swing, really gets you on the inside. Norman is a whiner too, remember his crying at the Kemper Open about #9 green?? Then he wanted the World Golf Tour. He's not even good enough to play on it now... Basically, anyone with a mommy-and-daddys-countryclub-I-dont-want-a-real-job-golf-swing, is on my sh** list. Golf is one of the only sports where you can buy talent.
  2. Iron is a quick green. Doesnt last very long. The greens are double cut at 1/10" with super thin bedknives, and rolled. You'd be suprised at what the filters on the cameras do. Im not sure what variety of bent is on the greens, it sure as hell isnt pencross. I believe everything else is overseeded rye. I've heard the monitor they ground temps around the azaleas so they bloom at the right time. With an unlimited budget, you can do anything.
  3. "Manufactured" is about right. Looks at the amount of pesticides and fertilizer that go on a US course versus UK. Somewhere, someone decided everything had to be a shade of green and perfectly manicured. And the friggen 30 handicaps bitch about greens not being a 10 on the stimp meter.
  4. " Next time, use your turn signal" - big slice or hook Kinda lame, but gets a laugh or two. I dont know what I like better, playing golf or talking smack... When you walk up to a ball, and its behind yours, yell .......... "Oh....I must be in the front row..." old Bob Yuker beer commercial. There is going to be a load of smarta$$ comments THIS weekend!!
  5. dang, I didnt think it would go this long, I love it!!! I forgot... OB1Kanobi ..........outta bounds Hit a house..... putt flying by the hole. When trying to kill a drive "hit it like it owes you money!!"
  6. They tweak their equipment a lot more than one might think. Just talk to the fellas in the trailers. the pros can tell the difference in 1 wrap of tape. As far a working the ball goes, you may think they are "working" it, but for most its their natural shot. I've seen them hit shot after shot during practice rounds, and never hit one straight. Ever see Craig Stadler go after a left pin?? doubt it. If you think about the physics of hitting a golf ball dead straight, you'll realize it happens less than you think. Think about the axis of the golf ball sitting on a tee, then a club coming in contact on an arc.....see what I mean.
  7. We've all got them, we've all heard them, what are your favorites?? Mine is: "She was ugly, but she had big ti---" Translation: I just hit one off the hosel that bounced back into the middle of the fairway, or other cruddy swing that ends up with a good result.
  8. "Whats in the Bag" is one of my favorite sections of Golf Digest, so here it goes.... Driver Tayolormade 360 10.5 44 1/2" ProLaunch 65. Havent gotten in the big boys yet, got 100cc to go. Treated myself to a reshaft on vacation at Myrtle Beach. Morons at Martins put the shaft in with the logo up. He said "Well, thats how we do it here" What?? Find me one on the rack thats like that. Has a pile of lead tape on the heal..I've always done my one shafting, now I know why.. 3 Wood TM 300 Tour 15 deg. Buddy had one and let me hit it, after a few shots, I just had to have it. 7 Wood Caved in a Rescue, so I switched to this. What a hunk of junk. Just takes up space now.. Irons Cleveland TA-7 Tour. No where close to being a tour player, but I bought these off the Cleveland Van as a treat to myself. Hit every club they had and got fitted for these. I was ticked that I took a day off work to get fit for clubs only to find out I was standard all the way...Love these irons though. Wedges Cleveland 588's. 60 deg and 56. 56 has "Bad Mother F-----" stamped in the hosel. If I have to have a buddy bring me a wedge, and he says "which one?" I say "its the one that says bad mother f----- on it" Usually gets a laugh, "Pulp Fiction" reference there. Remember Sam Jacksons wallet? Putter Ping Anser 2 with black fill pingman logo grip, like Tiger's. Bottom is polished like a mirror, rest has a satin sand blast finish. What can I say, I like to tinker... Bag Izzo, gift from co-worker. Used to have Fred Funks old Founders Club bag, name and all. I used to set it out on the driving range the sit at a bench and watch people gather around looking for him. Pretty funny when they saw a hack hitting balls. Damn thing weighed a ton.. Ball Old school precept Laddie. Played with them a couple of times, then found a closeout at Wally for 7 dollars a box. Bought 10 boxes, down to one now. Not a bad ball, gotten used to it, so now I have to keep playing them I guess. As for the rest, usually a can of Skoal (birdie juice) 2000 Texas quarter for the year my daugher was born. Leatherman micro tool. Chapstick, BC powders, Suntan lotion, gold bond powder, tape, couple of extra spikes, Possum Trot ballmark tool (my favorite course in Myrtle) 2 beer coozies, head weight for warm up, TPC towel from back in the day, couple of Jim Beam minis just in case....
  9. Are you listening?? Your putting sucks because of the deformity in your arm from patting yourself on the back. You like the 2 iron because of your little ego. At 15, I suggest you put it in check. You're coming off like one of those whinny country club brats. Life long wannabes. Heres a thought, how many times in a round do you actually use the damn thing??
  10. Its like those big ego scratch golfers that feel like they should be on tour, and act like super a$$es. I prefer: "You're away"
  11. Look at the old courses. No tricks, just using the land, prevailing winds and terrian. A course that you have to play a dozen times to figure out the stupid quirks is ridiculous. PD Dye has one in Va. "The Gauntlet". Zoysia fairways, pretty dumb idea up here. Wait until you get to 17 (?) . tee shot is a 7 iron down hill then a 6 back up. 15' off the front of the green and you cant see the putting surface. Now thats ego. And bland courses?? what 5or6 under makes you tired? You cant use your distance to your advantage? Since when? So 150 yards with a 9 iron is the same as some else hitting a 5 that far?? Leave that driver at home for a change...
  12. Im a 14 and have been putting a lot of work in on my launch angle. I suggest everyone work on it. You see, if I hit a bad shot and throw my driv er at 45 degrees, I get the optimum distance. Im working on adjusting the swing weight so that it helicopters better. I can spin a Porche 911 better with my 60 than my 56. If I really want to spin a range ball, I put 2 in a bunker and hit them both at the same time. One really spins. Cool huh? Yep, about as ridiculous as launch,spin rate, moi, blah blah. Give me a friggin break. Just practice putting...Putting....Putting.
  13. The problem in golf is that the noise in not predictable. In basketball, its a consistant roar throughout the shot. Football the same. The other thing is that in a golf swing, you have to pull the trigger, its not a reaction like in baseball. If its dead silent when you start, a noise during the swing will throw you off. How many times have you played with your buddies and only stop the conversation when you're swinging? Hell, the guys I play with get ticked if someone forgets to bring a radio!! Tiger should be pissed. The photographers know the rules. Period. They are told over and over again, and pull the same stuff. If the other 500 people standing around him can stay quiet, why can't the guy with the camera do it? Even my damn $150 digital camera has a silent mode. If you ever played with someone that doesnt throw a few "bombs" throughout the round, its because his first name is "Reverend" or "Pastor"....
  14. Depends on how much green you've got. No green, use the lobster, lots of green, 7 iron +. Best to get it on the putting surface as quick as possible, and let her roll.......
  15. Todd Hamilton, Phil Mickelson, Vijay has a 9 wood that is juiced that he can bang all over the place....
