  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    2018 TST Michigan Outing - Interested?

    July 8 in Ann Arbor could work for me.
  6. I play a set of Tommy Armour 845s Silverscot irons that I purchased in about 1999.

    I get out to Eagle Crest in Ypsilanti a few times per year. I will hit you up next time I go.

    People just don't "go to sleep" anymore

    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.
  11. I can't remember who said this either, but I distinctly remember a pro admitting the ball does "move" in the rough when they address it. I know mine often does, in thick rough you really have to address the ball at least 3-4 inches behind it, or hover the club, to NOT move the ball. I rarely see pros hovering or addressing far behind so I assume there is some movement taking place in the rough, though I doubt it is helping them in most cases.

    2018 RBC Heritage

    I do love the PGA Tour Radio. You can stream it from the app too, so I listen on my commute on Thursday and Friday afternoon. As for the delayed broadcast... I think with today's instantaneous connectivity there is little excuse not to show sporting events live in some form, at the very least streaming online. I get CBS not wanting to change around their line-up, but perhaps that is why broadcast TV networks will be fading over the next decade. Many are switching to streaming services anyway I and long for the day that I can just pay $10 a month direct to the PGA Tour to see every round of every event broadcast live, commercial free, on an app compatible with my television.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    The idea of a player's personal circumstance impacting their play, particularly their dating lives, has always fascinated me. As for Tiger, his winning seems to correlate with stability in his personal life. Allow me to propose a thesis: Tiger Woods needs a stable home life to win golf tournaments. 1996 - 2001 (29 victories, 6 majors) - Woods' Dad is the focal point of his life 2002 - 2009 (42 victories, 8 majors) - Woods is dating and married to Elin 2010 - 2011 (0 victories) - Single March 2012 (1 victory) - Single (Woods meets Lindsey Vonn in April 2012) 2012 - 2013 (7 victories) - Woods dates Lindsey Vonn Since meeting Elin, Tiger has had a single victory while single (heh). Can Tiger win while single? Should we keep a close eye on his dating life to predict when he will win next? Or will this be the part of the story where he overcomes his personal demons and does it alone?

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    He also mentioned in that interview, or one after the last round, his intent to get back into a better fitness routine immediately following the Masters. I think he is quite aware that his stamina has to improve to grind out 4 rounds under competitive stress and concentration.

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    I thought the same after seeing his interview yesterday after Round 1 of the API. He seems grateful to just be playing the game again. I chose Tiger to win simply because this whole story feels inevitable. Augusta does not punish wayward drives as much as other courses and his driving is the only part of his game with any trouble right now.
