  1. Leave it to the USGA to make a rule to allow one type of anchoring, Matt Kucher style, but not allow another, Keegan Bradley style. I do think it is pretty funny that this putter is being named "Metal-X Arm Lock Putter" though I would have liked "Metal-X Arm Anchored putter better.
  2. By the narrowest of margins Fred Couples should be in the golf Hall of Fame. That narrowest of margins to me is "Boom Boom". Fred "Boom Boom" Couples is loved by the fans and golf is entertainment and part of being a Hall of Famer is to be appreciated by the fans. Mark O'Meara had a similar career but what nickname is he known by? So, the voters got it right by the narrowest of margins is very appropriate.
  3. Since, when can't you anchor any other club to your body if you want? If anchoring a club to your body is an advantage then do it. Golf like any other sport evolves with new techniques. Anchoring a putter is just a new technique. Just like the jump shot was to basketball. I guess you and Tiger Woods would want us to return to the two handed set shot in basketball also.
  4. I'm going with Tiger Woods winning four tournaments and one will be a major. The fields are so tough these days that winning more than that is nearly impossible. The Masters and US Open will be Tiger's best chances of winning majors. I'm pretty sure a lot of work is now being done on the short game and that is the missing piece for him and he knows it.
  5. Haney has no business writing a book about his time as a coach with TIger Woods unless Woods gives him permission. He was an instructor and Woods was his student. That is a trust relationship that needs to be honored.
  6. I like this discussion on the hips and stronger left side. Only when I do those two things do I hit the ball hard. The photo of Faldo at impact is terrific.
  7. I vote no. Putting is the most unique part of golf. The argument suggesting it is an unfair advantage is silly. It is only valid if you are not allowed to use one while your opponents can. If everybody is allowed to use them then it is not an unfair advantage. The argument that it takes less skill to use is also really silly unless you are going to outlaw every putter other that the two sided flat bullseye. The argument about anchoring is also silly because the putter is already anchored by the hands. Wow, I can hear it already, you putter touched a part of your body that is not your hands, tw
  8. The best ball markers are not the ones you buy, they are the ones you make. I have three favorites that we have made. A photo of Char and I at a laua in Hawaii, a shot of the kids on a boat, and a great photo of Autzen Stadium, where the Ducks rule the world. Sort of interesting, all my photo ball markers are of places away from the golf course. Wonder what that means???
  9. I like your design it looks very nice. I really like the idea of alignment markers combined with a line on the golf ball. As long as people don't get silly about being to precised. In my case it would be point it right or left of the hole so I can remember which way the putt breaks. For our Photo Ball Markers http://www.photoballmarker.com we put an alignment arrow on the back for two reason. One so people can use it or try it as an alignment marker and two to point back toward where the ball was if you are getting out of somebody elses putting line. Good l
  10. Well done and congrats. Looks like a chip in on #5. Nice shot.
  11. Point made and accepted!!! However, we are better than LSU this year and we will be better than LSU next year when we meet in Dallas. I'm not saying the #SEC isn't a very good conference they are. But, if you compare bowl records and conference matchups the past five years the SEC is not the best conference by record in either category. I don't think the Pac-10 is real strong this year. Stanford, Oregon and USC are very good but the rest of the league is down. But, for the past four or five years it has been as tough or tougher than the SEC. The Pac-10 has proven it in non-conference games
  12. The SEC plays these games so they don't get beat by quality teams. Meanwhile, a Boise State and Utah get trashed for not playing tough teams. But, they will play anybody and anywhere. Seems like the SEC teams get a free pass when they schedule these silly opponents. Then we have to listen to how tough the SEC is. But, Oregon goes down to Tennessee and finds out the SEC isn't really that tough. We win by 30 after stinking it up for the 1st quarter. I guess playing Chattanooga State and Louisana - Monroe and Florida never leaving the state proves the SEC is so freaking awesome. As of the Ducks
  13. If we don't get to play the "FEARED" SEC this year, Oregon plays LSU next year at a neutral sight. We did squeak one by Tennessee at Tennessee. One think I notice is those "SEC" teams really shy away from playing any serious opponents in the non conference schedule.
  14. Oregon Ducks are #1 in the BCS rankings for the first time ever. I remember sitting in Autzen Stadium years back and we were the only fans in Section 3. Oregon was getting destroyed and nobody was watching the game. Now, it is one of the craziest and loudest stadiums in the nation and the Ducks are one of the most entertaining college football teams in the land. Been amazing to see how far we have come and be fun to see how far we can go. Go Ducks!!!
  15. I think it is really good for golf that Westwood became the Number 1 player in the world right at the end of the season. 1. The international players being #1 will build some excitement in the US and Europe. 2. Having a bunch of players battling for #1 will spark interest. 3. Tiger needs some short term goals to get back to being the great players we all know he is. Getting the #1 ranking back is a very good one. 4. Phil as always the bridesmaid and never the bride.
