  1. When in doubt, don't hit. A rolling ball will not cause any injury, nor will somebody coughing in your back swing. You wouldn't dream of clearing your throat when somebody is starting a swing, make sure your ball is not rolling around their feet then also..
  2. If he does, its for the investment, not because he thinks he can design a better club.....maybe.
  3. A rumor many times has a basis in fact, a speculation does not. This strikes me as speculation,
  4. I'm sure we have all seen a version of this photo.
  5. I've played a two ball putter for over 15 years now. I had a gift card burning a hole in my wallet so went to look to replace it. I really liked the feel and look of the Taylor Made Spider. I found it easy to get the club face square, something I was having an issue with recently. I get it to my home course and drop a couple balls on the practice green and start making some strokes. Everything was way short. two feet on a 15 foot putt. Remember, this is on the practice green of my home course, these are putts I've hit hundreds of times. If the Two Ball has a softer insert, will that make a putt roll further? I'm sure I can learn to adjust, I just never associated a putter and distance.
  6. Ask Rusty if he ever tried the shot, I'm sure he did.
  7. First round of my senior club championship was today. I played with a gentleman I knew of but rarely play with. He is 76. He shot a 74 today, with an eagle on a par 4. I kept his card and congratulated him on the achievement. He shrugged. It was the 4th time this year he beat his age along with matching it another four. He did it for the first time at age 71. I'm sure the guys on the senior tour do it often but I thought it was noteworthy for one of the unwashed masses. He hopes to continue to do it into his 80's with a solid exercise and diet plan. How rare is it on your courses?
  8. I explained the reason for marking balls to my, at the time, 6 year old granddaughter. I then gave her a red, blue and green sharpie and told her to have at it. Unfortunately green was her favorite color at the time so she just colored them all green.
  9. I'm sure they were just trying to film the swing from what used to be a unique perspective. I have a vague memory of Bobby Jones doing the same to a camera mounted in a tree......
  10. So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
  11. Say "Ever since you put that little hitch in your top swing your really killing the ball."
  12. The only difference is the caddy is giving real time advise. For some players I'm sure he just carries the bag, for others he plays an integral part of the players success. The team sport coaches do get a team medal. I assume the player is paying travel etc expenses to have their caddy on the bag. If you were there and won, what would you do?
  13. So the players get a medal. What do the caddies get? I bet cash would be a bit of a let down in this case. Hopefully the players will have a jeweler put something together for them.
  14. Do golf superintendents have a web site? Someone there may recognize the logo.
  15. A lot of guys I see blow up because they try and take it out on the ball on the next shot, over swing and compound the bad hole. OB is tough, loss of stroke and distance. In other situations though don't try and hit a shot you just don't have the ability to hit. Just because you can imagine a low 5 wood 220 yard cut shot around the tree to the fairway does not mean you can execute it. When your in trouble, first rule, get out of trouble. Don't try and make up two bad shots with one great one, and good or bad, leave your last shot behind and focus on the next one.
