    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Been a long time since I posted... Shot an 81 today, best round of the year, 3 birdies. New hcp of 13,2. My goal was 13 (started at 17,8 this year) so I guess things are going fine :)

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    Yeah, I totally do not understand picking Garcia. I also am not convinced Stenson is a good choice, based on his play the last months. I admit I'm a little biased towards Pieters - I would've loved to see him out there again allthough he didn't have the best of seasons. But no Matt Wallace? Surely he's in way better form than Sergio?

    2018 World Cup

    Exciting game to watch but it cost me a year of my life Japan played solidly in the second half and took maximum advantage of their chances. But we'll have to play a lot better against Brazil if we want to advance to the next round.

    2018 World Cup

    This. Both teams are using this game to rest their best players. And despite what both managers said, I think they won't mind losing tonight to get in the 'right' bracket.

    2018 Valspar Golf Championship in Tampa, FL

    Definitely. Conners doesn't seem fased at all, he's holding it together quite nicely.

    Consider What a 20% Ball Roll-Back Would Mean

    This woulde be a de facto bifurcation, right? No way are 'they' rolling back the ball and expect it to not have any consequences on the amateur games?

    Rules Situation: Ball Rests on Twig Over Hole

    Just sent the pic to my friends I'm taking a golf trip with to Spain in May. The first response: "If this happens to me, I'm taking the first plane home."

    Rules Situation: Ball Rests on Twig Over Hole

    I'd have a hard time convincing my friends it's not holed but I can't help feel like you're right. It's still touching the grass, right?

    Your Golf Game - The Uplifting Topic

    I played a long awaited game against one of my co-workers. Due to ourwork schedules it was difficult to set a date, it took us almost a year to get it organised. Off course, during that time there was a lot of banter and a small bet (for some bottles of wine) and everybody at work knew about the game. I played very well (for me): ended up with 84 (+11) with 3 birdies. Very pleased needless to say! Sent him home with his tail betwen his legs and that nice Italian wine I've got coming my way will be a nice reminder.
  11. Cultural differences and all... The most boring sport ever: baseball. Live as well as on tv. Closey followed by cricket. @iacas I'll give you cycling, at least when it comes to the sprinter stages in the GT's. Those aside, it's a very tactical and exciting sport to watch, if you know what you're looking for. Also, I don't really understand what american football is doing so high on that list, I really like it.

    Mark Crossfield vs. Taylormade

    Well, obviously, it's not miraculously. He has a deal with Titleist to play almost excusively their gear. And he has played other sets in the previous years before he settled on the MP5's. The one club he hasn't changed is the Ping hybrid, the one he calls Rinky Dinks. Titleist allowed him to have that stay in the bag allthough he will be testing their hybrid at some point to see if it can replace the Ping.

    Drivers I have loved...in the past.

    I'm relatively new to the game. I've only had two drivers, so not much history. My first one was the Taylormade Jetspeed; I liked it but have not got anything to compare it to. I cracked it's face last year and now have a M2, which I got fitted for. Still have the cracked Jetspeed clubhead, on a shelf, next to my poker table, as some sort of trophy :)

    Fowler Playing With Untucked Shirt

    I voted 'don't care' (at this moment). Looks fine for Hawai. Don't know if I'd like it for a regular tournament, Definitely won't like to see him wear it in a major. At my club shirts are supposed to be tucked in at all times, so maybe I'm just accustomed that look...

    Hole 19 GPS

    I don't know how much data it uses during a round but something I forgot to mention in my previous post: if you play a lot of different courses, you can download the course maps to see how each hole plays out. I've used this feature quite a bit before playing a course I was not familiar with. It at least gives you a general idea how each hole is designed.
