  1. Thanks. It's hard to tell on TV and I always thought it seemed strange how #12 tee looks like it is just placed in a field of grass rather than elevated and set off like on most courses you see.
  2. I've never had the fortune to attend Augusta National. Watching on TV, though, I was wondering why there is so much manicured grass between the tee and pond/green on #12? Seem like a huge waste. Anybody know?
  3. Article has potential, but the writing style is way superfluous.
  4. Thanks, newtogolf. You're right, I did miss that. That crosses a line. Whatever side of this argument you fall, I'm learning more and more that people will believe what they want to believe no matter what is said, done or displayed. I guess that's called conviction. Funny, that word is also the same word used when someone is found guilty of something.
  5. I'm sure you are a very fine and intelligent person, but you can't seem to grasp the difference between proof and suspicion. I'm not going to re-list the items that are contained in this thread and have been published in medical documents that can lead one to be suspicious of PED use only to have you respond line-by-line with possible reasons why they might not apply to Tiger or anyone else for that matter. I'm tired of that game. And, I'm not going to ask you to prove a negative. As you know, facts and opinions are different. You can mix the two, but they aren't the same. All I'm going to say is stop trying to interpret an opinion as fact. Just stop. It makes you look less intelligent than you probably are. 99% of the people who think Tiger Woods may, MAY, MAY have taken PED's hate him? LOL. I must be in the 1%, then. I think your point might be valid, though. I can believe there is a large % of people who believe that Tiger took PEDs who want to see him fail. It might have to do with racism. It might have to do with the enjoyment of watching the mighty fall. It might be that some people just don't like his personality or he treated them rudely by not signing an autograph between holes. Maybe they don't want to see Jack's record fall. Who knows? Whatever the reason, NO ONE can deny Tiger has been great for his sport and has been a source of excitement and interest during his career. So was Dale Earnhardt, but not everybody loved him, either. By the way, I also believe those same people who hate Tiger and want to see him fail don't care if the cause is PED's, infidelity, injury, swing changes or whatever the reason.
  6. Agreed. There are plenty of other things listed in this thread that would lead one to be suspicious. If there was hard proof that is public knowledge, then Tiger would already be banned. So, it is just plain stupid to ask, "Where's your proof?" OF COURSE, there is no proof that is available to the public.
  7. LOL. What's idiotic is believing he absolutely did not take banned substances just because there is no "court-worthy" evidence. By the way, there are many things listed in this thread that could make one suspect. I'm not going to re-list them.
  8. Slow-play Joke Teller Guy. This guy has already caused you to fall 2 holes behind, but interrupts his pre-shot routine on the tee box for 5 minutes to tell his unfunny joke. Meanwhile, you are uncomfortably watching the group finish up on the green behind you.
  9. Haha. Reminds of the guy I play with. He doesn't have all those medical conditions during the same round, but he always shows up with a different medical condition every round. Usually, it's some kind of muscle strain in a different part of his body he got lifting weights or working in the house/yard that week. Last week, it was poison oak on his leg. Other times, its some kind of digestive problem. He's not that old, but he has to stretch before every shot because his neck/shoulder/back/whatever is sooooo tight.
  10. If divorce was inevitable, I'm just glad they did it before they had children. Fortunately for the single men on this board, I'm married. Oh, and I'm broke, too.
  11. It's uncomfortably awkward when the cart girl flirts with me. I just take off my glove and show my wedding ring like a crucifix to a vampire. I'm so incredibly good looking, though, I can't blame them. Leave me alone, I'm trying to play some golf here. I don't have time for these distractions. Oh, and wake me up from my fantasy...
  12. Tiger Woods just announced he is not playing next week's Arnold Palmer. We all know what THAT means! Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
  13. Correct! Gold star! However, inference can also be defined as the non-logical, but rational means, through observation of patterns of facts, to indirectly see new meanings and contexts for understanding. Of particular use to this application of inference are anomalies and symbols. Inference, in this sense, does not draw conclusions but opens new paths for inquiry . Yes, I copied that definition. No, I'm not. You are using what's called Cognitive Bias.
  14. Just an observation. Seems like you observed the same thing. Do you even know what inference means? Most on here don't.
