    2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills

    Based on all the talk about the penal rough, I predict the story this week to be on those - poa, I believe - greens. Bodes well for Tiger, a la Torrey Pines. C'mon, 15!

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    Good on Patrick for the win. His parents getting media attention at this moment reminds me of LaVar Ball.
  4. Good thread. A couple of years ago, I took a year away from playing golf specifically to focus on fitness - cardio, strength, flexibility. I joined a gym, and since then, I've gained 10 lbs of muscle, am stronger than I ever was, trained for and ran a 10k, and finally was able to touch my toes with locked knees. All of this was primarily with better golf in mind, but the residual effects of a better life are immeasurable. Oh, and I am always tinkering with my diet, now incorporating more veg, less meat/starch-- still carrying around too much body fat. I also don't neglect proper rest/recovery time so as not to exhaust myself. Now I'm back playing golf, and the difference is noticeable. Injury free, zero back issues, better swing, no fatigue. All that said, now whether I'm golfing or not, I'm keeping the fitness routines/diet/rest in place forever. And hopefully the golf, too.

    Ice Skating Redux - Tonya Harding

    (off topic - I saw the movie - birdie. Some really great performances, and a well told story.) I don't remember much from that time beyond the basic headlines. I remember getting the impression from the stories that she was lower class, worthy of disdain, and capable of such acts. I remember basically thinking she got what she deserved. Now I'm not so sure. A life sentence is a long time.

    Faster Greens = Slower Play

    Ok. Since you didn’t think about it too hard I’ll let you off the hook.

    Faster Greens = Slower Play

    Maybe, but I’d wager that’s a stretch that more approaches end up closer to the pin on faster vs. slower greens. Other variables: Most pin position placements on fast v slow? Most green tilts (toward/ away from fairway) on fast v slow? Difficulty of approach shots on courses with fast v slow greens?

    Faster Greens = Slower Play

    Softness being equal, though, faster would tend toward less receptive.

    Faster Greens = Slower Play

    I surmise that the reason for significantly slower pace of play due to faster greens would be due to the need for more strokes from off the green because approach shots didn't hold the faster greens as often as the slower ones. From what I can tell, though, the study didn't include this aspect in their stats. They only considered time spent on the green. To which I surmise a similar effect, in that approach shots that stayed on the faster greens were relatively speaking further from the hole than on slower greens, resulting in more time spent. Ultimately, though, 7 mins per round difference? I don't understand how that can be considered statistically significant over a 4-5 hr. round.
  12. consider me jealous. beautiful clubs.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    swing looking good. And it just dawned on me that his logo is reminiscent of another W brand (apologies if already posted elsewhere) :
