    What Has Happened to Golf?

    Okay. You, the helmet rule in golf guy, and guy who wants a different handicap for walkers go straight to hell.

    Different Handicap for Walkers?

    What? No. You want to even the playing field? Pony up the $15, Grandpa.

    Do You "Slow Drop" the Flagstick?

    I'll drop it off the green surface, but always just set it down gently when on the green. That putter trick is used by two types of golfers. Those who have bad backs (Woods) and old people.
  4. I voted he would. I figured the repetition would win out. Apparently not.

    Paul Azinger to Replace Johnny Miller on NBC

    At one point Johnny Miller was easily the best color man in golf. But he's gotten lazy in his old age, and his insistence on explaining every poor shot late in a tournament by citing nerves has become tiresome. Azinger is a good replacement.

    Draw vs Fade: Which is Cooler & Reliable

    This may sound odd ( I have no idea if it is), but when I'm playing my best golf, I fade the ball with my longer clubs, hit it pretty straight with a 6 & 7 iron, and draw the shorter clubs. It's probably swing specific, but this has long been my pattern. EDIT--I think the draw is cooler, but personally have found the fade more reliable. The fade stops faster on greens. For me, this hasn't been a problem, because I'm drawing the ball with my shorter clubs, and they won't have unreasonable runout regardless.
  7. Unless you need something specific, I'd just load up on golf balls and gloves.
  8. Oh, I get that. I don't need the gamegolf thing though to judge club distances. There are plenty of charts out there that pretty much match perfectly with my club distances. When I misclub I almost always know why. The problem for me isn't using the wrong club, it's that whole hitting the golf ball thing. EDIT--I'm Longleaf purple 6 almost perfectly.
  9. Well, I'm always confused about "average." I hit a PW roughly 115. But if I catch one of ten super fat and hit it 60 yards, that would bring my average down over five yards. Add in two just regularly fat PWs that go 90 yards, and we can deduct another few yards off the average. And the same applies to the driver. The driver is obviously more consistent, but sometimes you yank one a bit and hit that tree hovering near the edge of the fairway and end up hitting a solid ball that actually only went 120 yards. So for the purposes of discussion, I usually think of my "average" distance with the driver as being a anything that isn't horribly struck that avoided that overhanging tree. But even then I'm not sure. I almost always have one shitty wipe per round that's high and fades and probably ends up at 200-210. That happens more than me puring one with a driving ball flight that goes 260 (of course I'm assuming the general flat no wind qualifiers). But that still doesn't stop me from saying 240-250 off the tee. That's a "typical" solid drive. None of us are pros. If you took the REAL average of our full swings, we're all hitting the wrong club almost every time.

    "Lot of golf left to go here," the NBC/GolfChannel crews remind us. And sure, I'm not giving up on watching. But please with you trying to secure your ratings. We all know how this is likely to end.

    Good observation. I mean, who else could have possibly come to that conclusion? Also, if you don't mind "passion" and some "expletives," how is that "out of place?"

    Tiger's singles record is incredible in team events and even moreso outside of them. If anything is holding his pairings record back in these events, I'm willing to bet it's 75% his partner's performance, and not his own. My God, Fatrick has been AWFUL today.

    *Dottie Pepper quote* EDIT--That might be a bit unfair, since Europe just continues to perform more than the US chokes. By a slight margin.

    Tiger! Let's hope that starts a gigantic US charge to, uh, split the morning matches.

    I mean, this is embarrassing, yet again.
