    What tee to play from?

    Recently my brother and I had won a round and a very exclusive country club nearby. We normally play tees around the 6,000 yard mark. This course had Gold at 6,200 and a White/Red combo tee at 5,800. We were initially reluctant to play the "ladies" tees, but eventually opted for the shorter track. Good thing we did, the course beat us up pretty good from there. Anyway, as I approach 40 I have fully accepted that I enjoy golf more from the appropriate tees. Until I can drive the ball 270 I am gonna stick with enjoyment over ego.

    2019 FedExCup Playoff Changes

    FWIW, one of the most popular sports league in the world, the English Premier League, does not even have a playoff system. Top team at the end of the regular season wins the title. I agree, contrived. I think sports should highlight their strengths rather than trying to be like other sports. You want to crown a season long "Champion" based on money earned or total victories? Great! (side note: no one ever talks about the money list anymore, wonder why?) But to break down a long, grueling season to a couple of shots in the last tourney is gimmickry. I'll still watch though.

    2018 Tour Championship - FedExCup Finale

    First of all, it gave me goosebumps to watch Tiger complete the comeback. Incredible to see a man overcome so many physical and mental challenges to get back to the top of the game. Bravo. I also agree that the FedEx Cup lacks any real enthusiasm, in part, because no one really knows how it works. When a guy with zero victories has a chance to win the prize there is something wrong with the system. Next year is even worse. A season of success gets you two stroke advantage in a single tournament? meh

    2019 FedExCup Playoff Changes

    The entire FedEx Cup is a bad idea imo. Trying to crown season long "champions" has been a mostly futile effort in individual sports. See NASCAR as a similar example. All of the tweaks in the world don't generate excitement. Outside of the majors and Ryder Cup the PGA Tour is a niche sport and they should accept this. Same with NASCAR outside of Daytona / Talladega. Anyway, now they are throwing more money at it to contrive excitement. Yet the RC has zero money and great excitement. The money doesn't matter and won't change things.
  6. Whether he should have been DQ'd is not relevant to his character. His character is only relevant to your opinion of him, arguing opinions on the character of an individual is an exercise in futility. He purposely broke the rules and accepted the consequences handed to him.
  7. Funny how this stuff always devolves to judging the "character" of the individual in question. We want so badly to label the individual as either the protagonist or antagonist, when in reality it's neither. Phil is an exceptional golfer, and a flawed human being. We should focus our discussion on the integrity of the game rather than the integrity of the individual. Any discussion, if any is warranted, should center around the rules and how such situations should be handled in the future.
  8. Vintage Phil. I had a good laugh when I heard what he did. Legend.

    Crypto Currency (Bitcoin)

    That does not sound sustainable. It seems bitcoin has become stagnant. The price and any optimism for where it might lead.

    Same. Dark room, no electronics, with some white noise from a fan.

    2018 RBC Heritage

    Hulu you can pay $4 extra per month to remove ads from the shows. I gladly pay it. ESPN just released a new service that does not require a cable package, but still limits viewing based on "geographical markets", so still more of the same imo. The cable companies and the networks are "middle men" and the technology is now there to bypass them. Direct to consumer live sports via subscription streaming apps is the future.

    2018 RBC Heritage

    I agree, which is why I hope things continue to change. We are seeing this with the Hulu type model for TV and now ESPN is delving into streaming services for live sports. Just a matter of time IMO before this old model dies.
