  1. The PGA Tour, light sabered and Star Wars'd

    Every May 4th the PGA Tour tweets out the same video of golfers with lightsabers overlaid on top of their clubs. Every year I hope maybe they'll make a new video.
  2. Over the next 5 years - Who wins the most majors?

    For whatever reason I said Rory. I'm sure if you ask me again in an hour I'd change my answer.
  3. Buying our first "new" car

    I bought a VW Golf a few years ago. My previous two cars were sedans but I wanted something a little different. The Golf is a nice mix of sedan size and SUV versatility without the gas mileage and size of an SUV. (The runner up I was looking at, the Subaru Impreza hatchback, was a similarly nice size.) Looking back, I definitely could have and should have driven a tougher bargain. I got pre-approved for a loan from my bank. I probably could have negotiated and cross-shopped my way down an extra $1000-$2000, but honestly I got a good about of features (sunroof, heated seats, upgraded speakers) for what I paid, so I'm not that disappointed. (The only disappointment I have now is that I bought mine a few months before the next model year came out, and I really would have loved Apple Car Play over the mediocre VW infotainment system software. But I didn't know that at the time, and my previous car was dead so I couldn't hold out for it.) Aside from a snafu with the cooling system that was covered by the warranty, I haven't had any issues with it. I'm nearing 50,000 miles. One thing I noticed when I bought mine is that the used car price gap seems to have closed quite a lot. Used Golfs a few years old either had a significant amount of miles or just weren't very discounted, so I went with a new model. I don't regret that move in the slightest, as I intend to drive this car for a good long while.
  4. What are you doing for the total solar eclipse?

    What did Buffalo do to deserve that?
  5. I think it faces the same issues as the rest of the sports that rely on national TV deals. I don't really know how that'll work its way out though.
  6. I know we talked a lot about players not marking their ball during the last few majors, but this one by Ian Pouler (shocker) is particularly egregious:
  7. Well it's going to be at least a semi-interesting ending.
  8. It seems like Louis has had that wrist injury for a decade.
  9. Looks like it's Justin's to lose now.
  10. Very nice save there by Hideki.
  11. Not a very timely flub there by Hideki. Oof.
  12. Top Flite

    They won't be anything special, but as long as you don't expect perfection out of them, I say go for it.
  13. Liking the run by Rickie, but I think it's too little, too late. Pretty typical for him, unfortunately. I'll take Hideki, not that that's going out on a ledge.
