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

    I think Kuchar is getting way more flack for this than he should. He should have paid the caddie more and I think that he was in the wrong there, but Gillis basically made it a public shaming when it should not have been. I'm also quite surprised people are not going WTF about a "50k or nothing" response from the caddy. Being booed and having people cheer when you miss putts is also just ridiculous. Most of those people probably are not discussing it to the length that people on this forum are and it's shame that it got to the level that it did before something else was done. I'll tell you why I have some measure of sympathy for Matt. I am lucky enough to make more money than both my family and my wife's family. And what did they do to me for that? They expected me to be their piggy bank and backstop for their life choices. It became an expectation that I would help them if they got into trouble and I was given a lot of crap if I didn't swoop in and pay their bills. I can't help but think that there is some measure of "well he's rich so he should ...." embedded in all of this. No one really looks good in all of this. The caddy looks the best overall, but it's a crap show. Kuchar - dude, you should know better and at the very least recognize that your bottom line doesn't change by doing something really nice for the caddie Caddie - sorry, but saying no to $15k tells me someone is in your ear about this. from what I've read, you don't speak English and probably were a lot less help than other caddies. But you did deserve better. Gillis - what an ass. I caddied for 15 years. Sometimes the guys paid well when they won. Guess what, sometimes they didn't think they had to. Did I like that? No. But I didn't expect some big bonus just because they hit the right shots to win. Again, the caddy deserved more, but man how many people complaining about this are wearing clothes made in far away sweat shops or buying off Amazon which hits Main Street businesses hard. That's basically the same thing, where you gain an advantage at the expense of someone else. A lot of people in the midst of this should not throw boulders around (just a few stones so Kuchar does the right thing though).

    Predict Tiger's 2019 Season

    I think he'll win a PGA tour event, maybe 2. But I think he'll be 0 for 4 at the majors. I hope I'm wrong. It would be colossal if he won The Masters.

    Who Is Your "Golf Villain"? And Why?

    I like Poulter a lot, he can be cast as a villain because he usually rises to the occasion for the Ryder Cup. He generally picks his fights well. Robert Allenby seems to have a penchant for treating people horrible and falling down. I'll go with him.

    Saying Hello And Question on my 70-degree Wedge

    I use a 64 degree occasionally, and I say occasionally because there are not many times where it is the only, or correct, club to use. It is noticeably higher than a 60 and it goes high enough to largely stop very close to where it lands. The main reason I don't use it very much is because I don't find shots that tight, not the right sand to hit from if I am in a tight bunker. I've successfully used it to get up and down from pitches where I have very little green to work with, and once you get down your distance on these pitches, it's an effective weapon. However, it gets used maybe 1-2 times over 3 rounds of golf. There are so many other ways to get the ball near the hole and it's not really a good club to launch from the fairway from 60 yards out.

    Tee or No Tee?

    I don’t use a tee past a 9-iron on a par 3. But I do put it nice and highly placed on the grass if it’s some type of wedge. It’s great if you have the game to drop a ball and hit, but I would say always use one.

    Who is on Golf's Mount Rushmore?

    While we are at this, why not add: Star Wars vs Star Trek. (Star Wars!) Joel vs Mike. (Tie!) Coke vs Pepsi (depends on the mood) Betty vs Veronica (tough!)

    Poulter Plays In Under 2.5 hrs

    I used to have a sweet deal with work where I played Wednesday mornings, and hardly anyone was at the course. I usually played in 90 - 110 minutes (course was un-walkable, so on a cart) and could shoot near my handicap. If I was behind Poulter, I'd be furious at being held up.....

    What are Your 2019 Golf Goals?

    Cut my handicap in half. Add several more shots to my arsenal. I'd like to focus on being able to hit shots of different height and add some wedge shots to my game.

    Are you a brand snob?

    I'm brand loyal, but not a snob. I would put Snell and Vice against the Titleist ProV1s that I use and not have an issue. As for equipment, I spent a lot of time going over what clubs worked for me, and what I wanted to hit. I did not consider anyone out of the running, although some of the SGI and GI clubs were something that I did not want to go for. But that stripes across companies big and small, doesn't remove someone from consideration. I expect that my wedge, woods and irons will all be the same vendor when I refresh in several years. I am extremely happy with my bag and unless they crap the bed with future releases, they have earned my trust.
  13. Unless it’s low thirties I don’t see any difference in distance. I don’t think I am good enough to know that a well struck 6-iron went a few yards shorter because there are enough other reasons it might do so. I played a lot of golf in low 30s weather though and that was an extra club. 50 degrees, I am pretty much the same as 80 degrees afaik.

    Ever Played While It Was Snowing?

    Yes, someone who worked at a course let me and a friend out with snow on the ground for fun, and then got yelled at for the potential damage to the green. It was interesting. About 3 inches on the ground. I remember bumping a lot of five woods around off the snow.

    Michelle Wie, blonde hair

    Michelle Wie is an incredible golfing talent who also strikes me as a fun and attractive person. I would hope that she is appreciated instead of objectified.
