  1. Not sure if this is worth a new thread, but there's some more gas for the Lisa Cornwell/GC sexism fire: At Golf Channel, women say, sexism fuels a ‘boys club’ culture - The Washington Post Harassing emails. Demeaning comments. A struggle to climb the corporate ladder. Former employees of Golf Channel describe a culture that routinely sidelines women.
  2. I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical th
  3. 8 inches of snow for me last night. At least next week looks nice...
  4. Interesting Twitter thread from a doctor:
  5. Hope he is okay. I don't know what else to say at this point.
  6. Since playing 9 holes on December 24, I've been able to hit balls outside once. Some of that is because of the weather, some of that is having two small kids. But it's been a frustrating couple of months for me, golf wise. It's good to be heading into March and April, but those also tend to be the most frustrating months because it's warm but then snows. They are also two of our snowiest months. Anyways, I'm starting to get that itch again...
  7. https://www.usga.org/content/dam/usga/pdf/2021/rules/Proposed Rules of Amateur Status - February 2021.pdf An article from GolfWeek on this: USGA seeks to simplify Rules of Amateur status with proposed changes What is the distinction between a professional golfer and an amateur one? The U.S. Golf Association would like to simplify the answer to that question. Together with the R&A, the governing body… Basically, the USGA and R&A are proposing to change the definition of amateur status for golf. If the proposal goes through, you can only lose
  8. If we're talking only bifurcation, then yes, I agree. Pace of play isn't going to change on the tour with a rollback. They're already f***ing slow.
  9. One thing people mention as a positive for a rollback is that pace of play would get faster. I'm not sure that's true, because it's very dependent on the players. But throwing that out there as a pro-rollback argument.
  10. I agree with this. Nantz isn't going to trade the Masters, March Madness, and the Super Bowl for bad Monday Night Football games. That said, I would not mind getting Nantz off of CBS. He's not terrible, but he's completely bland. The next time he says something interesting will be the first. He also thinks very highly of himself. It would be nice to have someone with personality as a lead announcer for a change.
  11. Look down at some of the advanced stats on that page. They show that Elway was above average almost every year in yards per attempt, completion %, and QB Rating.
  12. It's really hard to compare QBs from the 80s and 90s to QBs from 2000 on. The league adjusted its rules and the widespread adoption of spread and air raid offenses at high school and pro level have made comparing NFL passing stats really tough. I don't know if Elway is overrated. He's not in the conversation for GOAT, and he was never the best QB in the game. He was some where between above average and elite for his entire career, which is rare for QBs of any era, and rarer for QBs in his era. He's somewhere among the best 20 or so QBs of all time. As to why Elway is thought so highl
  13. Ours is $50. I don't think I get any benefits other than the handicapping service. My understanding is the $50 fee is split between the state golf association and my men's club.
  14. He was 39th in Strokes Gained: OTT. 10th in SG: Approach, which is not good enough to win when you've holed out two approach shots during the week. He's on the right track, but he's not going to be "back" until he wins. I haven't been this encouraged by his play for a long time now. All that said, it was a weak field. Outside of Berger, Cantlay, and maybe Paul Casey, there wasn't much firepower at the top of the leaderboard.
  15. Wow! Sounds like you're lucky to still be with us. Glad your wife was quick on her feet.
