    Or an excuse with the Mrs to get a new pair. ;)

    I was playing in a local charity tournament several years ago. At one point there was a pretty good "heated conversation" between to guys about if a pair of sunglasses that were specific to golf were legal or not. One guy was wearing a pair that supposedly were "golf specific". They looked like regular sunglasses to me. 

    I did not pay much attention to the issue at the time, because it did not have anything to do with me. What I was really thinking was why anyone would care at a charity event? I found out later there was a rule against wearing a certain type of sunglasses for golf. 

    What was that brand of sunglasses?

  2. I have not done yoga in many years, but I'm going to be 45 next month and not really digging the little extra weight I have put on. I plan on doing some sort of yoga training (at home) 4-5 days a week after the holidays. I originally started doing it while I was single for the sole reason of working out with chicks in yoga pants (the person that created those is a genius). It was a hell of a lot harder than I had anticipated. I did vinyasa yoga which is also know as hot yoga. They crank the room up to 90 degrees and you sweat more than you ever have. I was a high level soccer player for the majority of my life, so I was somewhat flexible, so I thought. Anyway, it's not easy to get in these poses and hold them for long lengths of time at first. It's one of the best workouts that I have ever experienced. Your flexibility will be greatly increased as long as you stick to it. Do what you can whether it's once a week or every day. Some stretching is better than no stretching. Happy Holidays. Rick

  3. I just bought SwingTalk and love it. It made me realize how flat my swing was and has not only helped with distance, but also accuracy. I think there are a lot of unnecessary stats for a player of my caliber, but for a lower handicap it may be beneficial. Here are two screen shots from a swing of mine compared to a pro. Mine is the (blue) and pro is (red). My takeaway is too inside, very flat and backswing is excessive. After seeing this I was able to take my club more out, create a better arc by swinging steeper and shortening my backswing. I've only had it a couple of days, but my initial thoughts are for $150 I think everyone can gain something from it.

  4. Watched Tiger today and he looked the Tiger of old. His short game looked really good from what I saw.

    Phil played with DJ, Rickie and Snedaker and I know they had $$ on a few holes bc they finished three of the holes we watched before starting to practice putting and chipping. Phil put on a nice show with his flop shots for the crowd.

    What an incredible experience. I feel very blessed to have witnessed what I saw today. It was completely astonishing.

  5. One thing about The Masters is you never know who is going to win it. I'm calling Spieth. I don't care who wins. This is the best tournament hands down. The best part about this year is that I will be there for the Wednesday practice round. Thanks @missitnoonan for scoring the tickets.

    Enjoy Carl. My wife won tickets and we are taking our fathers. We're driving from Michigan Saturday and going to play 18 in NC Sunday and then play The Landing on Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee GA on Monday. My father always wanted to take his father and his dad died at a young age, so it means so much to experience this with him and my FIL. I guess we'll all be able to check one off the Bucket List.
