  1. Liberals always have trouble dealing with the truth. They are ILLEGAL ALIENS.
  2. I think we agree here, boss. The thread is titled "Higher handicaps should be practicing the short game more". I agree with this, but if someone is THAT bad, they should work on developing a competent swing first. Because if it takes them 6 shots to get to the green, it won't matter how good their short game is. I think you're saying the same thing. Although I could be wrong.
  3. Indeed, short game practice is essential. However, guys that suck at golf often find themselves reaching the green after 6 shots. The damage is already done. Not much consolation between a nice 8, or a sloppy 9. You can't fix SUCK.
  4. Personally, I don't have much sympathy for Muslims. I'm waiting for ANY Muslim to denounce the acts of terror that are being carried out worldwide, almost exclusively by Muslims. Their silence speaks very loudly.
  5. All of it was due to investing. Me and wifey lived off one salary and saved/invested the other. Do this and generate returns of around 15% per year, and you'll have plenty. Well, that's not something I see often. Real card counters are a rare breed, indeed. After I retired, I put together a bankroll of $60k and studied and practiced obsessively for 6 months. Then I started hitting the casinos- monthly trips to Vegas, and several shorts trips elsewhere. And I'm sure you know that counting cards is NOTHING like they portray in the movies. The edges are razor thin and the variance is just brutal. And good games with pit critters that will allow decent spreads are rare too. I did it for about two years, then was burnt out and quit. Made some money, but not a lot.
  6. I'm not a member of any investment forums. I prefer to think independently, and don't really want opinions from others. I prefer to invest in companies that have a history of growing revenue and earnings, a debt-free balance sheet, strong cash flow, and are trading at a PE ratio that's on the lower end of their 5-year historical range. I don't trade. I invest. And it works. Allowed me to retire at 42 and spend my days drinking and playing golf with friends.
  7. Okay kids- see if you can find the statement that's actually true.... 1500's "The earth is the center of the universe" - 97% of scientists 1960's "Beware the coming ice age" 1970's "The world will run out of fossil fuel in the next decade" Jimmy Carter 1980's "Everyone will die of skin cancer because of the hole in the ozone layer" 1990's "At the turn of the millennium, all the computers in the world will fail and send the world into chaos" 2000's "Beware global warming". 2010"s "Climate change will create monster storms and weather anomalies that will destroy the world". 1880's "There is a sucker born every minute." P.T. Barnum
  8. Clearly he has some more work to do. Get the popcorn.
  9. Trump is done. I think we all knew this day was coming, right? I never considered Trump a serious candidate anyway. I don't think he ever wanted the job. He was just having fun being Donald Trump. He'll surely take a few others down with him. For sure.
  10. For me, there is no substitute for time on the range with a bucket of balls and a competent professional armed with a Trackman, and a video camera. Anything else is a waste of time. And money.
  11. Beginner to 7.7 in 9 months? Although I could be wrong, I'm not buying it. I like this. And it's amazing how few people really play by the rules. Even those that think they do, probably do not.
  12. Ballybunion Golf Club. Ireland. 2006. Wind was so strong that the ball would roll away before I could hit it. After a few holes we quit. Went to the pub and played poker all day and night.
  13. Haney mentioned that tigress is obsessed with distance. This isn't going to change. tigress needs to retire immediately, instead of continually soiling his reputation (as a golfer) each time he plays in a tournament. His reputation as a human being is already soiled to completion.
  14. You're right, man. What the hell was I thinking?
  15. Perhaps tiger should seek sex reassignment surgery (like Caitlyn Jenner) and take a shot at the LPGA Tour. It's the only chance at winning another tournament.
  16. No doubt Bernhard had a good career. But if he's gonna go out next year and yip a bunch of shorties, he should prob retire now instead.
  17. You can teach a man to fish, but he'll vote for the guy that will give him a fish.
  18. The people that know tiger best (Stevie, Hank, Elin) don't speak too highly of the man. I've never met tiger, but it's clear to me he has ZERO integrity. Any man that cheats on his wife is a piece of crap.
  19. I agree completely. Few consider a driver a "scoring club", but every time I drive the ball well, I also score well.
  20. I carry a TaylorMade R1 and a TaylorMade Aeroburner 14-degree mini driver. I use it in place of a 3-wood. It's easier to hit and goes farther. I'd highly recommend it.

  22. Agree. As a young man, Greg Norman would arrive at the driving range while it was still dark so he could do his stretches in the parking lot. He was ready to start hitting balls at the first sign of daylight. After it became too dark to see, he would leave to go work out.
  23. You're correct- it's all relative. Allow me to explain why I say scratch isn't very good. I play lots of golf with a guy that's a "plus something." He's won a few events on the Hooters Tour, and a couple other mini tours. He's played in one PGA Tour event (missed cut). He qualified for the US Open, and actually held the lead briefly on Thursday, but missed the cut. He is good, but he's still a nobody in the golf world. He's not even good enough to play on the Web.com Tour, and probably never will be good enough. One day I asked him if I could get to scratch and he said "Sure, but scratch is shit."
  24. I remember the last time I hit 2 balls simultaneously. I stepped on a rake.
  25. Indeed you can get to scratch. Why not? However, scratch isn't very good. I'm a 4, and I suck. I play with a bunch of scratch golfers, and they aren't very good either. Scratch is certainly achievable. And it's within reach of many, many golfers. The pros all have something in common- they have a complete disrespect for par. And complete disrespect for par (scratch) golfers.
