  1. I've spoke to a couple of pros today that I know. One older pro said his "business and success is based on relationships with his members and potential members. Integrity plays are large role in that relationship. Outside of a charity event thats focus is to make money for the charity I will only play in Pro-Ams or PGA sanctioned events" My other pro, after I explained what actually had occurred and some of the rumblings that I heard from some players at the event. he explained Pros can play in events like that, there are no rules pertaining to it. There is also no rule about taking cand
  2. Ok, so it's clear, unless otherwise indicated pros can play. Now, Does your club pro or director of golf play in this type of an event???? Yes or no?
  3. When I said yes I meant people from out of town or who ordinarily do not play in the event Apparently after speaking with some event usually is a sell-out meaning that there's people waiting to get in. There was only one pro that played in the tournament this seemed to be a concern after the tournament that this guy played in it my guess is next year there will be an understanding that Pros will not be allowed to play in it this is what prompted this thread was not about the amateurs playing in it but the pro playing in it whether it's a rule or it's just kind of a mutual understanding
  4. Although I can appreciate the advice concerning amateur status, I can assure you it won't be an issue me or with this group that attended. Mostly weekend player types with families and careers. lets go back to the original question, not from a rules Perse but from an ethic, reputation and general well being. BKuehen you see nothing wrong at all. If I am understanding correctly My assumption is wrong, but for this late season skins and pins by local members and out of town guests playing in it. I think they see this as ethically wrong. I.e. No other pros from 7-8 clubs in the area pla
  5. we forfited our amatuer status- had we won and had we accepted the money, is what you mean(?)
  6. While Visiting a friend down in Fort worth area over the weekend. We played in a skins and pins event. It was organized by some local guys, It cost a 100 bucks a man. There was a full field, quite abit money. There was some food and keg beer included. Surprisingly there was 4 pins and only one skin. Turns out the head pro (PGA Professional) from a neighboring golf course won the one skin and 2 of the pins. Close to $8000 I don't have sour grapes but I thought as a pro you couldn't play in money tournaments that were like this? am I wrong? I thought that pros could play in tourneys agai
  7. Keep in mind those of you thinking that Phil had a point with Spin, this was 2004 the proV1, Nike TA , Calloway ball (rule 35??) were all remarkably simular. There was no Prov1 X, there was no ultra thin covers like there is today....they were remarkably simular except in the patent office. Todays golf ball differences can be found in 130 yards on into the green. .....and then to spend 4 or 5 hours. I happy to hear PHil realized his fault and not only did he appologise, but he personalaized by calling directly, then made it known public. I hope the lesson learned his technical ba
  8. I think DJ hands down, overall he had a great year, not just a strong finish like Rory
  9. 7 Ps Proper planning prevents piss poor perfromance probability
  10. Now that right there would "proper planning" by Phil. Besides how many balls do you have to hit to make a determination of Tigers ball over your own??? The 5 Ps- something I have subscribed to..... Proper planning prevents piss poor perfromance
  11. Phil had diarhia of the mouth yesterday, giving a reason for the poor play of he and tiger in 2004 RC as not being prepared to play and test Tigers golf ball that is "higher spin" versus his low spin ball. Plausible only with Phil. 4-5 hours??? Puh-lease. I have been involved in 3rd party testing of golf balls and i can actually say that Phil is full of Sh*t here. The overall difference in spin from tour caliber golf balls, rememebr we are going back to to 2004, the diference is insignificant off the driver, from eight iron on down to wedges the spin characteriscs averge out from
  12. Recently we saw tour groups of 3, ovbviously walking, and at times waiting for greens to clear, plumbobbing putts,, checking yardage and wind, you know the usual stuff, they played thier round at the DBC in 3 hours and 30 minutes which I thought was fine. I immediatly passed it along to my tortise golfers, explaining that they take 15 less swings but walk a 7400 yard course ( as oppossed to 6400), wjy does it take them 4:45-5:30?
  13. Mayb Spieth should spend more time over his ball, talked to his caddy more, slow things down a bit........... (god help us no!)
  14. I am well aware of history of his play, but be that as it may. he's the definitive "has been" assuming he is playing at some top secret driving range and teaching facility out in the desert somewhere. Returning to the PGA especially in the black, after so many years, that 613,000 is nothing to laugh at or even considered do-able. I also believe but I maybe mistaken that there is a time limit of when this has to occur and it may have expired. Afterall its been several years. Kim has remained somewhat of a recluse over the years, with the insurance policy, nike contract and po
  15. Im sure Adidas would have prefered to keep Day, make no mistake with that. Adidas according to my sources offered a 5 year-5 mil per year deal. Nike offered 10 million per year. Its a common understanding that apparal has the highest margin (profit) both for adidas and UA for that matter. Im no rocket scientist but Nike golf presently, according to sales figures 700 million world wide , with clubs , balls and bags doing about $150 - <200 million of that. Im no rocket scientist but that leaves about 500 million for apparal and yet Nike is on the hook for yealy endorsement in the range
