  1. Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    All of those drugs are illegal without a script, doubt he had current scripts for all 5. Anyway, that's a minor component of my post. More important is the fact that they are dangerous and potentially harmful and Tiger had no compunction about putting them in his body. As I mentioned, just another tick mark on the Yes side of the argument for me. There are a few ticks on the No side as well, but Yeses far outweigh Nos on my scale. Perhaps not on yours.
  2. Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    I've always believed Tiger used PEDs to some degree in his prime. This revelation, while unrelated, ticks another box on the Yes side of that argument for me. Clearly no compunction about putting dangerous, illegal substances into his body.

    "Go get that." Ma boi
  4. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    The TST poll? C'mon G, you know better. Your objective thoughts about golf are generally correct but when you delve into the subjective, you typically are off the rails. Keep rollin tho...
  5. Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Always knew it was Jack, his special on GC just sweet confirmation. And it's only just begun. Tiger might slip to 3 after 3 episodes. Lol
  6. Forget about wrist hinge

    It's an interesting game, golf. Just the opposite for me. I spent a year and a half not able to hit my driver out of my shadow. Could not figure out why. One day about 3 or 4 months ago it just sort of dawned on me that I somehow had lost the wrist cock that always had been so natural in my take-away. Since I've reimplemented the hinge with all full shots, my ball striking has been terrific, driving the ball long again, compressing irons more consistently and scoring better. Cannot hinge and hold on pitches or chips though, gotta keep the left wrist straight for those types of shots. Crazy game we play, lots of ways to get it done.
  7. 2017 Masters Tournament

    This weather changes my picks somewhat: DJ - nothing bothers him Jordan - mentally strong, good wind player Phil - good wind player (now), knows course better n anyone and he's 46 Rickey - loves the elements, embraces the challenge Zach J - also embraces the challenge, only way he can win is in inclement weather If weather was nice, I'd pull Rickey and Zach in lieu of Rory and JDay.

    Fkn stupid. You RoG Nazis should be proud.
  10. Is the 5 wood dead?

    I don't think there's any question that 5W's are in many fewer bags today than 10 years ago. I haven't used one in 6 or 7 years. Can't recall if I took it out in lieu of my 60 or when I switched from a 3I to a 3H. Either way, my gaps at that end of the bag are great, 5W would be redundant. I'd guess fewer than 20% of PGA tour pros use one and the majority that do probably don't have a 3W. It's all about having 4 wedges these days (or 5 even).

    Rahm's a lil bitch. He should be a good foil to root against for years to come, supplanting Sergio (who I now like, oddly).
