  1. Semantics, nobody is impressed that you and rulesman read the rule. The long putter, for all intensive purposes, has been outlawed (when the rule takes affect). On another note I did see someone last week on the practice green with a long putter and instead of anchoring he was standing facing his target with his putter to the side of him and was putting really well. He said that he had tried anchoring when he first found the long putter but that it wasn't for him. Saw this article and was reminded of this new rule, this months Golf Digest also has a similar article. http://www.golfdigest.c
  2. There are not many times when I laugh out loud during a golf telecast but I literally laughed out loud at that Sir Nick comment
  3. He first "claimed to be so good" at the WGC, he "didn't do better" yesterday at the masters therefore implying that since he is so good (conclusion drawn from him "doing better" at previous tournaments aka WGC) he should have done better... its really hard to explain your logic to you since I don't think you understand it yourself. Secondly: he backed up his mouth before and after (he was first asked the question when the WGC was in progress and then again right after he had won).
  4. So by your logic/reasoning he was not only top five but also the number one player in the world when he won at WGC? Therefore he had every right to say so. Sucks when your own logic disproves your own argument huh.
  5. Care to list his other two wins? Is that what golf is, "only after winning a major can you then talk about being good". I'll wager that if he were to win a major this year you would then say " well Tiger didn't play in that major so put an asterisk behind it". And let's be honest, he would get the same reaction from most if he won the masters and then "went off". And come on , really, his temper... the best player that I've ever seen play golf also seems to have one the worst (if not the worst) temper I've ever seen. You may have heard of him before, its some guy named Tiger...
  6. I don't think that's a good way to put it, there are plenty of people who think that Phil is arrogant and probably just as many that think Rory is arrogant. Your also talking about a line (between arrogant and self confidence) that is hardly visible, in fact many may argue that they are the same. And lastly, should we really take what Johnny Miller says for anything? I mean, he's a great commentator but he is hardly humble and I don't think I can count how many times I've heard him stick his foot in his mouth (or whoever is in booth with him do it for him). I just don't think that Miller is
  7. That's so bad that Daly looks photo-shopped
  8. I hadn't commented on the OT Tiger love fest that was going on earlier until I saw the "master catch all thread" part, now that I've seen that I'll respond. First of all: Tiger himself has mentioned that him being African/American is not a big deal because he is just as much Thai as he is African. Secondly: I would argue that there were other great athletic players before Tiger. Third: Course design has a lot to do when talking about "legacy", maybe not playing legacy but definitely on overall golf legacy. I don't think that you can argue against Jack's course design contributing to his leg
  9. Nope, not trying to be big, bad or confrontational. Just calling it how I see it. Your opinion was not based on facts, logic or even rational... The course treated everyone the same, some just hit better shots. Even if a shot is only better by an inch or two its still better and that doesn't even mean that the other shot wasn't good it just means that one was better. When you start to add up those better shots over the course of four rounds you end up with a winner. I think I'll name that post "The Game of Golf".
  10. I think its funny how the same course that was so unfair to every other golfer was so kind to Reed... An opinion is just that but just because its an opinion doesn't change the fact that's its idiotic.
  11. Tell us how you really feel... First of all) Tiger doesn't own the color Red, secondly) I think that it was stupid of him to mention every tournament that he's placed in but not arrogant, thirdly) he was asked and he did answer honestly and lastly) we golfers are extremely superstitious so you can't blame him for trying red and continuing to wear it after he won with it. BTW when I say "we golfers" I'm not being arrogant or comparing myself to Tiger, just an expression.
  12. I would argue that you can fake a face i.e. grimacing, extra stretching, rubbing your own lower back etc. but you can't fake the swings that he was taking... I'm no expert but I watched Tiger take a couple of swings yesterday that weren't even close to his normal swing. *disclaimer: I still really don't like Tiger... but have to admit that he looks hurt and hope that he gets it figured out before the Masters, the Masters just has a different feel when he's in contention.
  13. This conversation took a "pissing match" turn awhile back but you just keep on going and going until someone responds and no one has so I will. 1) I believe that the letter was sent to members of the PGA of America so yea, as far as the letter is concerned the rest of the world may as well be on another planet. 2) I wouldn't expect you to know anything about baseball but it has long been known that the best baseball players in the world play in MLB therefore making the best team in MLB most likely the best baseball team in the world. 3) People in the United States of America (that don't kno
  14. I did this in my last round and shot my best score in a calendar year. I actually took it a step further and not only played to the center of the green but I also took half a club more on all approach shots. I do have agree with an earlier poster that it is not easy to shoot at the center of the green, especially with a scoring iron/wedge in hand.
  15. I need to preface this review: I was fitted online for Tour B330, what I received from Bridgestone was Tour B330RX. As I have never played any type of Bridgestone ball I did not think anything of it until after playing three rounds with these balls. I also didn't want to make a stink because free balls are free balls and I think that I was one of the first to receive them and didn't want to sound like I was whining when others where still waiting to receive theirs. That being said: 1) The first round I played with the B330RX and felt that I simply had a bad day since I had allot of straight
  16. The Masters has to be at the top of my list for majors, I think that it has something to do with the strategy of placing your approach shots and still being able to go low scorewise. I hate watching Pebble Beach because of the amateur coverage but I love the Waste Management tourny.
  17. I quoted it poorly but thank you for acknowledging it... my faith in humanity gas been restored:)
  18. I said it before and I'll say it again: those JPX-EZ are gaudy monstrosities, and this is coming from a Mizuno iron wh*re. But if you hit them and like them than go for it :)
  19. I've never used a set of "bladed" irons:) but I would recommend getting a cheap single used blade from golfsmith or ebay and try to hit it at the range. You said that you like to work the ball allot but it really depends on what type of "working" you like to do. Blades don't necessarily make it easier to work the ball left and right but they will generally be easier to work up and down... Also depends allot on shafts.
  20. With the driver, irons and putter I line up the Pro-v 1 with my desired line with the text reading upside down. I will say that if the line as a little off when step back to practice swing I won't fix it... and yea I know, major OCD
