  1. 1) No 2) 50-75 3) Not really, I stay in shape though 4) No 5) Yes 6) Yes I suffer from lower back pain, seems Ive only able to get about 12-13 holes in walking before it gets bad.
  2. That's tough, I view it this way, say you aren't warmed up, or at the start of the season after a lay off do you still have the SS for an X? If you hit the stiff just as well as an X I'd go with the stiff, in the day of adjustable drivers it doesn't take much to swap a shaft at different points of the season if you felt the need.
  3. I don't care if you're an administrator or not, I started the thread and I will continue to post my thoughts until a) people want to quit debating the fact or b) the thread is closed.
  4. I do not try and generate animosity, I do not mind debating and I bring facts to the conversation. I will say I worded the title wrong as I should have said global sport as opposed to global game. Yes golf is a global game as is ping pong. Asians make ping pong a sport Americans do not. That is truely what I am saying Globally golf is played as a game but as a sport it seems only US and Europe view it that way.
  5. Sure, people can't play in China why? Its to expensive? Maybe that's a sign that prices should be lowered to grow the game. But no my gripe is you call a World Golf Championship but refuse to play them around the world. Watching the Dubai tournament there was no short of fans there. I get tired of watching golf played in same damn place week in and week out, Yep just another 70 and sunny day in Florida for the 3rd week in a row. Part of the reason The Open is my favorite major, because you never know what the weather will be like. I personally like watching to pros battling a light drizzle and
  6. Is track and field not a sport? Is it not competed globally? Are there not many countries competitive in this sport?
  7. You guys are crazy golf is not a global sport, the United States have 50% of the world golf courses and about 55-60% of the golf population while only occupying 5% of the worlds population.
  8. Even United States produces good hockey players, and China even produced Yao Ming. The fact is the United States has 15,000+ golf courses, China has under 1000, India has under 100, Two continents ( Europe and South America) only have about 7000 courses among them. As stated before those players come to the states to play, so again is it really a global sport?
  9. I was thinking of backweighting my wedges, I never really thought about it in a putter. I was just really more curious on what their thoughts were to back weighting
  10. Don't be a cry baby if you don't like the thread don't comment. Now let everyone on the board come run to your rescue. I ask a simple question is golf really a game. Everyone could of quite simply put yes or no. The answer is No. A few countries have love for the game (scotland, Ireland, South Africa, Japan, US, England and maybe Australia) the rest just don't get into it. There aren't many courses, golf clubs are expensive and quite frankly if no one is there to teach you how will you learn. You will see come Olympics time.
  11. Huh, so 2 weeks before the tournament they were still scrambling for a sponsor. I can definitely see why the US gets all the tournaments now.
  12. Just because you don't remove the flag doesn't mean you're not having fun. I am the same though, born and raised in Ohio and now live in Michigan then to top it all off I travel a lot for work so I'm not even able to join a league or anything. Play by yourself can be very boring especially if it is a SLOW round. I may turn on some music or something just to pass the time. For me I just tell myself I'm playing golf and I'm here to have fun, if its not fun then I need to be doing something else.
  13. Is your putter backweighted? If so what benefits do you feel that gives you. I've read into it but haven't come across anyone that has done it.
