  1. Patrick Reed relief comment

    He comes off as a bit of a child in this exchange. He could easily challenge the ruling by saying something like, "but aren't these movable obstructions? Other players have gotten relief in similar situations." Instead he gets all passive aggressive and suggests that he'd be treated differently if he were Jordan Spieth and that the official was biased against him.
  2. Patrick Reed relief comment

    The final, "unbiased source" dig raises an eyebrow. Is there a rotation of PGA Tour Rules officials for all of the tournaments? So is there a chance that Reed saw this same official give Spieth relief in a similar situation?
  3. Rude Fans at PGA Tour Events

    I think this discussion isn't just about the players. Drunk idiots degrade the experience for others around them as well. Some* baseball stadiums have a phone number that you can send texts to when unruly/excessively drunk people are in the stands. The PGA Tour can set up something like that. If there's a drunken idiot following player X around shouting things that you don't want your kid to hear, text the number. A plain clothes official comes around and tries to find the guy and if he's being too abusive/unruly/rude, he's gone. This isn't a perfect system, the drunk could wander off to bother a different player or just quiet down of his own accord. However, you don't have to limit alcohol sales, you don't have to rely on players "outing" fans, and you, the fan, don't have to confront the drunk yourself. * I'd say all stadiums do this but I'm only willing to speak about the stadiums I've been to.
  4. Assuming he makes the cut, would this be the first time Tiger plays 72-holes in back-to-back weeks since his return?
  5. 2018 WGC-Mexico Championship

  6. What are Your 2018 Golf Goals?

    Really modest goals this year: play every round by the book keep score every round get to the practice range once a week play 5 18-hole rounds (usually, I just walk 9 in the evenings when the course is quieter)
  7. I'm fine with JT having the guy ejected. I agree 100% with @No Mulligans that it really should have been tournament or PGA Tour officials doing the ejecting. They (the Tour and/or tournament officials) seem to be unwilling to confront shitty fan behavior.
  8. I shouldnt be playing golf...apparently!!

    This a perfect example of "gate keeping". I kind of understand where he's coming from, though. I don't carry a handicap, I don't keep score and I don't worry about following the rule book to the letter. In other words, I don't really play the game of golf. Therefore, I'm not a "golfer." I can live with that. This part is just elitist bullshit, in my opinion, but it doesn't matter; my course is happy to let anyone play who wants to.
  9. Dress Codes: Good or Bad for the Game

    But "big stinks" go both ways, don't they? Why do my cargo shorts affect your day at the golf course? And what's so special about a collar? With exceptions such as t-shirts with the f-bomb written as large as possible, why do my clothes matter at all to other people on the course? After experimenting with different clothes, I found that standard "golf clothes" are the most comfortable for golfing (shocking!) so I usually wear a collared shirt and either golf pants or shorts; sometimes those shorts are cargo shorts. I hope I can still get into heaven.
  10. Winter Depression Thread

    Well, everyone needs to find some reason to be happy living in Charlotte. :)
  11. I started that badly and after 5 (I think) seasons, I'm still pretty bad. Things started coming together after the first season but they periodically fall apart again. (This can be an infuriating game.) I don't know what you think you should be shooting score-wise but golf is really hard and you sound impatient. If I were you, I wouldn't keep score. After 5 years, I rarely keep score. Usually score is kept when I'm playing with a friend who insists on it. (I don't know why he cares, we're both shooting in the 100-110 range.) I try to play with humility, patience, and humor. I almost always enjoy my round. :)
  12. One more voice for the "pick it up and give it to the pro shop if no one claims it sooner." We have one guy in my area who went farther than that: A buddy of mine left a Mizuno iron in a tree (he didn't intentionally throw it there, for whatever reason he let go of the club during his swing). This was before the season officially started (during a couple unseasonably warm days in Feb) so the pro shop wasn't open yet. He went back the next day with a friend and a ladder but couldn't find the club in the tree. So he asked me to swing by the course to see if I could see it. When I got there the club wasn't in the tree and it wasn't on the ground. I had to pass the pro-shop building to get back to my car and there, laying on the deck, was his club.
  13. Airplane geek thread

    Is it me or is it silly to have an "airplane geek" thread and no pictures of... ya know... airplanes!? I'll try to maximize my aircraft-to-picture ratio here and post a few from the museum at Boeing field in Seattle and the Evergreen Air Museum. I went to both back in 2015...
