  1. Did I read this right? The guy with a 10 handicap is beating scratch golfers and he's screaming about socialism and participation trophies?
  2. 3W. I love the control, the distance, and the sound I get off the tee.
  3. That's ok, us Gen-X'ers don't care what you think. 😉
  4. The article is a lot of feelings and pretty light on fact. The author says "it feels unfair" but it isn't. As someone else in this thread already said, everyone is free to put a line on their ball. I also don't agree with the author's contention that a line on the ball is, itself, an object. It strikes me as a very semantic, navel-gazing argument grounded (again) in feelings more than fact
  5. The irony here is that complaining about your "brand" does more to hurt your "brand." Grow up Bryson; everyone expects players to react after a poor shot. They follow other golfers after bad shots. The camera follows MLB pitchers into the dugout after a bad inning. They follow quarterbacks off the field after an interception. You're well-compensated for the extra scrutiny. This guy has a history of petulance when things don't go his way: complaining when his goofy putter was ruled illegal, pushing back on the criticism over his 6 minute putt, etc.
  6. I don't know if it's appropriate to say something to a client, but when my mother-in-law would say something like that, or just include the person's race when relating a story, my wife would ask her, "does the person's race matter in this story?" (It never did.) I don't think my wife really accomplished much because then my MIL would do the same thing but then follow it with "I know I'm not supposed to say that part" or something similar.
  7. I don't have the patience for one pocket. I like pocketing balls too much. 🙂
  8. I have a Brunswick Gold Crown shoe-horned into my basement. I got it at a good price and figured I'd just renovate/add-on to the house to make it fit better. The obstructions are minimal but I just use the table for practice so if the stairs get in the way, I just move the cue ball. My main playing cue is a Poison Bolt that I won in a raffle at a league tournament. I like the feel a lot more than a custom cue I have. Maybe I'll take pictures later. Favorite game would definitely be 14.1 but the closest league is up in Syracuse (90 minutes from my house). The league I'm in plays 8, 9, and 10 ball primarily but we also have "Fast 8" where you have 4 solids, 4 stripes, and the 8-ball and then play as 8-ball. i guess it's for when the league matches run late and you just want to get home.
  9. I voted because I'm a member of the site and on some level part of the intended audience but the more I think about it, what is the intended audience in terms of golfing ability? And for the record, I voted that I wouldn't pay for it. I'm not a fan of golf instructional videos and articles. I have no idea if I'm doing the the thing the video is trying to correct and if I make a change, I don't know if I'm really doing it right. I feel like one-on-one instruction is best for me.
  10. At my course, the clubhouse and pro shop are closed and therefore so are the restrooms. There are two port-johns on the course that I think are unlocked.
  11. They've "clarified" the statement and said that public courses can also open if they follow distancing guidelines. State-run courses are closed but otherwise, it's up to the operators. My course and another in the area re-opened. No carts, no inside access, maintain 6' distancing and "if they catch you'll they'll ask you to leave." So far, I've just seen a couple grounds crew, I doubt they're worrying about how close people are getting to each other.
  12. I worked for two summers after I finished high school as summer maintenance help in a local machine shop. The shop basically ground metal/steel cylinders down into a smaller things like the pointy punches to punch holes in band-aids. They also made punches for golf ball dimples; I was never told which brand and we didn't put the curve into it, we just sent them flattened punches and they shaped them for their balls. Anyway, as summer maintenance help, I basically cleaned things got dirty all year. The big summer project was taking down the metal light shades and cleaning the years-worth of oily buildup. This required climbing shaky ladders over running machinery to get the shade off, then clean it in a metal trough of water and GP cleaning solution. We wore yellow cleaning gloves and the yellow wore off the gloves and stained my skin. I went to my HS graduation with jaundiced hands. One of the better chores was dealing with the sewage (seriously.) We were out of the city and had our own septic system. All the waste went through some on-site processing and then was drained onto a sand field (about as big as a bunker.) It dried in the sun and then I got to rake up the leafy crap and dump it in the field. I was dealing with people's shit but at least I was outside. Lots of dirty, manual jobs at that place that make me appreciate what I'm doing now (software engineer.)
  13. We went to Lowe's yesterday for some stuff. The kid who helped us said people are going to the store and not buying anything, they told him that they just wanted to get out of the house.
  14. This has been mine as well. I have trouble believing that anyone, even a PGA Tour player, can be so perfect that they'd see a difference.
  15. Do you remember any numbers? Like how much distance could you lose/gain or deviation per foot for putting kind of thing?
