  1. Just chiming in on GC. You should definitely consider GC New Course before you do the N/S/E combo if you haven't played it before. I've played it twice now and loved it even more the 2nd time around. It is an homage design to St. Andrews Old Course. Fun course for those who love to air out their drivers (I mean who doesn't?)..
  2. LOL! Honestly this was the most fun I have had in 40 degree weather! BTW, you shooting 83 with borrowed clubs on a course you had never seen before, without much practice is pretty impressive in my book. You are a much better ball striker than your 'lol' profile handicap might suggest to some..😊

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    You must be so glad that all the female fans are home busy cooking dinner and folding laundry...😐. Imagine what would have happened if they got involved in the action as well.
  4. Great fun round in the semi cold today with @colin007 today!

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    My point is this has nothing to do with his financial situation. Also, nobody would say pay him same as John Wood i.e.. $120k.... but $5K instead?? I know it's a judgement call but seems like seemed somebody got lowballed the shit out of them before the tourney and cheaped out at bonus time. BTW, I think this will be my last post on this thread. I think it's bad karma to keep beating a dead horse..😊

    Interesting/Controversial Business Names

    There a seafood restaurant mini chain around here called "Dirty Dicks". There souvenir (ladies version) shirts read "I got my crabs from Dirty Dicks".

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Mike, I think it's not about his networth or his lifestyle. It's about what his usual caddie bill would have been anyway. He would have paid as he has done throughout his career I am sure. I don't think it was a 'screw job' or anything malicious, but it's hard to have sympathy for those who do the absolute minimum necessary toward their obligations when the opportunity presents itself. Even less so for those are arguably fortunate. That's cheap. It may not be a crime but image is fragile.

    Official Fast Food Fry Rankings

    McDonald's above Arby's..😐? Nope. Their cheesy fries are at the top of food chain. Easily. They will roam the earth long after mankind is gone.

    DeArmond Shoots A 17 On One Hole

    He said it was an out of body experience for him. I am sure that's what it turned into after he rinsed the 3rd or the 4th ball. At that moment the normal risk assessment/damage control/shot/club selection process that a pro would expect to go through takes a hike. I am sure he was dying inside but put up a brave face.

    My Swing (GolfLug)

    So, another thing I noticed is at A4 the club head mass seems to fall 'behind' my hands when laying off. I feel like that is really helping transition and sequencing. I know for a lot of folks this can start getting into the push hook zone but I have a weak right hand finger grip so I might get a mild pull every now and then but definitely not an accompanying duck hook. Helps me drive my right elbow/forearm towards the ball without fear. Hip and knee joints seem to stay unlocked and springy even at impact. It seems ball striking has been much more consistent. Granted these have come on really easy courses but last 4 scores - 79, 81, 83, 78. For very sparse winter golf and atrocious putter distance control (more 3 putts than I care to count), that ain't bad at all. I have cut down my putter to 33 inches. Will have to do until I get an Edel fitting hopefully this year.

    Overrated/Underrated (Golf) Topic

    Underrated. I don't see how fitting the tool to the mechanic that most of us use 25-30 times a round for a stroke that has a relatively low skill requirement (mechanically) could be overrated. There are a lot of 'good' putter out there who think/feel they are bad but just have a tool that does not agree with their stroke. This is where I think money can buy a bit of game. The fitting process in itself is very educational in what we think we do and what we actually do.

    Heckled More At Riviera: Kuchar Or Garcia

    Sergio. After the last round of shenanigans, I don't think I will ever miss seeing him if he never shows up.

    My Swing (Vinsk)

    Played there couple of months ago on a golf trip. Great layout. Played ok on the back 9 but front 9 ate my lunch for some reason...😊 Swing looking good!
