  1. The absolute worst rounds for me are the ones where I realize like five holes in that I'm playing too far back. So I will typically err on the side of shorter rather than longer until my game proves I should be challenging myself more, especially on a new course. So again, yardage is the primary determining factor with rating second.
  2. I am oddly rooting for DJ to close this thing out here. He's been so good for so long. He simply doesn't feel like a one-time major champion to me and this would be a much deserved feather in his cap. What a talent he is. Freak among freaks.
  3. Umm, it was fun thinking about this question. I mainly just go by yardage, but I live in South Florida so yards pretty much mean the same thing no matter where you go and a lot depends on how much rain we've gotten recently. The rating matters some too sure, if I see like 77 next to the 6900 yardage I'm definitely not going to be chomping at the bit to go for that. But courses like that tend not to be in my rotation.
  4. I'm having a renaissance with the Smiths lately so they've been on the playlist non-stop. It's funny, I was really into this band in my early 20s, but for whatever reason, the songs are taking hold in my heart much more than they ever did then. The Smiths -- William, It Was Really Nothing The Smiths -- Headmaster Ritual The Smiths -- There is a Light That Never Goes Out This Citizen cover of the previous song is pretty cool too IMO:
  5. It's been quite some time since I've watched golf, but I'm very much enjoying this quieter fall version of the Masters. I like seeing everything wide open with less patrons, but I'm sure this will wear off come the weekend when I'll wish we had the roars. It was a bit odd watching the Masters then Thursday Night Football on the same day, but I probably shouldn't be complaining about that. Fun sports day.
  6. Congrats, Scott! Wishing you a healthy, happy retirement! 👏
  7. As long as he stays healthy and motivated, neither of which appear to be an issue, he'll eventually figure this out. Golf is just multi-year maddening like that for even the game's best. It's interesting though that his swings from 2015 are nearly identical to the ones he makes now, at least to my eye. 2015 Matchplay: 2019 Northern Trust, slight over-draw to left side of fairway:
  8. Air pollution is down across the world. It's the golden age of being a pet, every owner is forced to stay home with them haha. I'm appreciating the life I had before #QuarantineLife began, that's for sure. Also, we can all finally write our novels/screenplays too* hehe. I'm zero pages into mine, which is another positive... for the world. Otherwise though, I've been pretty negative about this whole thing, so thanks for starting a thread that forced me to go the other direction for once 😃 *well, a lot of us anyway.
  9. It feels like so long since I've watched one of these. This was really great. USA!! 😄
  10. Learning golf is definitely chaotic, there's no question about that, but I've had the pleasure of working with several good instructors over the years, and there's also no question that they quantum leap you forward. You could spend an entire year practicing five times a week trying to figure out something that the instructor will tell you in thirty seconds. That kind of time/chaos reduction is worth the $100 or whatever they charge. You're always going to have to practice a lot to become good at this game, and you're going to get better at timing a bad swing the more you practice, but if
  11. Drew McConnell's Helsinki -- "The Very Last Boy Alive"
  12. Because I’m a sellout who loves America.
  13. Okay, I officially take back everything I ever said about Patrick Reed and am now rooting for him to win us some points.
  14. I used a theraband flexbar, weights, stretching, gentle massage, and working with a great PT. I also used blood flow restriction therapy. And I know this next one is for tennis elbow but strengthening the entire forearm is going to help. IMO the best thing is to see a great physical therapist to walk you through this though, someone who is up to date on the latest treatment methods. I currently do not have any symptoms and hit balls yesterday without any pain there. Pain emotionally yes but not in the medial epicondyle 😄
  15. I had just a stretch day yesterday and overall felt pretty good, so I decided to go back to the range to hit some drill PWs, just so I could do some disciplined work on my swing and build some momentum hopefully towards lasting change. Keep in mind, I can't even break 90 right now. Not because of putting and short game which IMO are perfectly fine (for example, I shot an under par round at the Jupiter Lighthouse mini-golf course recently), but because I would just hit so many awful full swing shots, there's simply no way it would happen right now. The good news is, the range is a mag
  16. I think @rehmwa was referring to a @chile quote, not me. Anyway yea, I'm also interested to see what the Aussie crowds do with this 😄. And piggy backing on what others have said, coupled with his history and the act itself, it really is about all the stupid ways he's decided to cover this up in the aftermath. And then yesterday, he decides to turn himself into this victim/hero/star-of-his-own-revenge-tragedy by saying that what Cam Smith said about it was "personal." Really? I mean, I guess he's in Australia at the moment so he can contact Mel Gibson and ask him optimal revenge
  17. It's so horrible 😁 What quote did I provide?
  18. Got it. Thanks for clearing that up. I will alert Golfchannel immediately 😜 It’s Tuesday after the fact, I think it’s still fair game lol. Plus the guy has a history. Also it’s a golf forum. And I’m just joking around 😂
  19. Find someone as forgiving to you as much as @chile and @BallStriker are to Patrick Reed 😄
  20. This is an informative thread. I'm very much enjoying reading through it again these last few days. It's just so taboo to "swing your arms" in golf or to talk about swinging your arms, or feeling like swinging your arms that I can easily see how this is both a confusing and important topic for many. But because it's so taboo to talk about this and because it's so easy to score points with any golfer within ear shot by talking about "hitting it with the body," or "opening the hips faster" or whatever, what should be a pretty intuitive thing gets lost in plain sight it seems. Beginners all
  21. Yea considering anyone decent at this game can tell exactly where they hit the ball on the face for every single shot, trying to play dumb that you can’t feel the brushing of sand away from your ball with a wedge... twice... is just flat out insulting to anyone observing, let alone the entire golf world.
  22. Reed: Smith criticism makes Prez Cup 'personal' Following his first practice round at Royal Melbourne on Tuesday, Patrick Reed... Yea okay, Patrick. You’re the victim. Get revenge, buddy. 🙄 The fact that a jerk like him won the Masters just shows how absurd the universe is. I’m gonna be rooting hard for whoever he faces off against this week. Apparently my love of America is not as strong as my dislike for Patrick Reed right now 😂🇺🇸👍❤️
  23. Finally got back out to the range since the last time (officially post-surgical range session #2). Sixteen days between them. I wasn't happy with how some things were feeling so I refocused my energy on rehab. Long way to go still, but things keep "progressing nicely" to quote Tiger 😄 So, in the days leading up to yesterday's session, I decided to focus heavily on mirror work so I had some feels nailed down and ready to go once I was ready to actually hit some balls. I wasn't going to waste any time since I was limiting the session to an hour only. I don't have the privilege of "finding i
  24. True, 250K per song is a good rate. Phil's gotta play 36 holes over two days minimum for what amounts to just a couple mil or thereabouts. So if you think about it, he's giving them an amazing deal and is arguably getting lowballed, especially when adjusted for inflation. Likely they were drinking 1983 Pessac-Leognan. A touch of the ethereal to be sure, but hardly what one comes to expect from that magical estate.
