    2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills

    Course is kicking ass so far. Spieth's ball speed with the driver has been under 170 every shot I've seen him hit. Interesting.

    Lydia Ko Thread

    I agree. But I think my original point stands. I don't think them being women is the reason a lot of their players only have 3-5 years of excellent play. The more I think about it, you can apply to virtually every sport. Most players have a 3-5 year prime that quickly flames out. Only the really great ones have a full and complete career.

    Lydia Ko Thread

    What male golfers have a long period of sustained success, outside of maybe 3-5 years? Tiger, Phil, Ernie, Vijay, Rory, Spieth, etc. Most players have their run and then fade away pretty quickly. I don't think it's an LPGA thing.
  5. I voted funny. I think it'll be good for this event.

    Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Nobody loves Tiger more than me. But if Jordan gets those numbers, he’d more than likely be my pick for the GOAT. Truth is truth, after all.

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    Nobody on that broadcast wanted Patrick Reed to win, nor did many of the people around 18 green. It was shitty of all of them, frankly.

    Livid, no. Sad and upset and drinking myself to sleep, yes. I will never apologize for laughing at Sergio. That guy is an a-hole.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    God, I bet that was amazing. Welcome back to Georgia, again! When I went to the Masters three years ago, he didn't show up for a practice round until late, after we had left. When I followed him at the 2011 PGA the crowds were ten deep. Nuts the amount of attention he gets.

    I am very late on this but I just wanted to say that I cackled like an old witch brewing a potion in a thunderstorm when Sergio hit those balls in the water. A truly great moment in my Masters history.

    Ian Poulter - Ass

    I understand that he won yesterday. That does not discount the literal years where he talked cash shit and did nothing to back it up. I don't think it's double standards. Spieth doesn't have a decade of this behavior under his belt. It's different, and it's easy to see why it's different. It's exciting when a brash talent takes the world by storm. If I'm gonna have to listen to someone mouth off, I'd rather them dunk on me and mean it. It's much more annoying when they talk trash and can't hit it out of their shadow.

    Ian Poulter - Ass

    I can't speak to whatever incident with Spieth you're referring to, but even factoring that it, I don't think he's shown a pattern of dickhead behavior. I don't mind Poulter having a lot of flashy cars and homes. That means nothing to me. It's the way he treats his fellow players and the media and the fans. He's just a jerk, and to make it worse, he doesn't even win!

    Ian Poulter - Ass

    I just think he's a jerk. I think back to that incident with Matsuyama from a few years back, where he went out of his way to embarrass Matsuyama while simultaneously embellishing what had actually happened. Factor in that by his own expectations he's a huge disappointment and a loudmouth, and you've got a recipe tailor-made for me to dislike you.

    I'm one of the biggest TW fans around, but I don't think that entertainers should get a pass for bad deeds. I don't watch Woody Allen movies anymore, despite how much I love him, because he's gross and has suffered no punishment for it. Obviously, Tiger hasn't done anything within the realm of what Allen did, but you get what I'm saying. Tiger, on the other hand, has lost hundreds of millions of dollars in sponsorships and endorsements and through his divorce. He's been mocked relentlessly for almost a decade now. If anyone has paid the price for their indiscretions, it's him. On a side note: it's hard to find the right balance of art v artist. I love the work of Ernest Hemingway, but recognize what a bastard he was. Maybe him being gone makes it easier to justify being a fan. It's certainly complicated. But anyway-- I think he has a very good shot. Great iron players usually have an advantage at Augusta, and he's the best of his generation, and maybe of all time. If not Tiger, I think Xander Schauffle has a chance. Not saying as the favorite, but I love his game and his swing.
