  1. Wow...those look great! Especially from the side!
  2. Tiger...I've rooted against him ever since he turned pro, got paid by Nike and got shoved down our marketing throats. I really enjoyed last year when he wasn't playing.
  3. Wow, I had the opposite reaction to the R9's. I didn't like the way they felt at all and I didn't like the looks. I liked the MX200's but I wasn't consistent enough with them for them to make my short list. I hit the MX100's better. When hit correctly, the 200's felt great. I hit the GC7s and thought they were a good solid offering. I ended up buying G15's and I couldn't be happier.
  4. Summer time: Bud Light Lime or Corona Light Any Time: Bud Light Sometimes: Fat Tire, Blue Moon, Shock Top, Hefe's, Red Oak (local to NC, I think) Have a good weekend, beer bash is starting here at work....
  5. Good topic guys. I play lots of sports and used to have serious issues with swamp ass and chafing in my nether region. Especially during volleyball tournaments. Lots of talk on here about compression shorts and a few mentioning briefs. Under Armour Boxer Briefs solved the issue for me. I don't care for the actual compression shorts but the boxer briefs are light, comfortable and great at wicking away moisture. Plus, for running they are long enough to prevent a bit of chafing I get on my upper/inner thigh (especially at the beach where a sandpaper effect comes into play).
  6. This is by far the best post on this thread. Many years ago I had one. I was actually more comfortable using my 7-iron so I gave it to a friend of mine. He still uses it. Good for him, it's what he's comfortable with. I guess that makes him an old man, a hack, lazy, etc. etc. Whatever. Great post packerfan1.
  7. I was really happy for Carling. She really hit some great putts to win. I was really bummed when Lilli made the finals but watching Carling win made it worth it. Love the spunk and the victory dances.
  8. One thing I like about P90X is that I can do it at home. I spend some $$ on dumbbells but it's a good tradeoff for me since most of the time when I'm working out it's 10pm after I get my kids to bed. I was always one to go to the gym to workout but you are right that there are lots of people in a gym who are most there to socialize.
  9. LOL, I knew that was coming (or an IPad reference). Well played shades.
  10. Two weeks ago on the 18th hole I took a 9 on a par 5. I scored a 92. I feel your pain. I was pretty upset with myself. Had to take a drop in wet rough and couldn't chip out of it. I shoot in the 80's occasionally, usually in the low/mid 90's. The rounds where I shoot in the 80's are rare enough for me to appreciate them (and hate it when I let one slip away).
  11. Can't take a website to the men's room, of course.
  12. I agree with what you are saying. I think each individual has to find what works for them. For me , regimented workouts tend to work. Right now, it's P90X. Before that I did Body For Life and there are times when I've designed and planned my own workout, created plans with friends, etc. Some folks don't need all the regimented, planned out workouts. I have a good friend that is always in great shape, works out all the time, etc. He never has a plan, just works what he feels like when he feels like it. He knows what he's doing in the gym (and with all the cardio he does), he just doesn't plan or record it. That works for him, not for me. To bring the discussion back to the OP's question. Notice that several of us have mentioned Yoga being good for golf. It really is (and it can be good for your back as well). I really hate doing the yoga in P90X but I'm going to do it because I know I need it.
  13. I thought P90X helped my golf in two ways. I had less body fat to get in the way (went from 167lbs to 150) and because of the core work and yoga I just felt like I could make a turn better. I have lower back issues and my lower back got much better (which also helped with flexibility). Basically I just felt more free and smooth when swinging a softball bat of golf club. I didn't state it because P90X is all consuming but I would recommend it as well as a good workout/lifestyle for golf.
  14. If I were working out strictly for golf I'd would concentrate on strengthening my core and adding flexibility. Inclusive with 'core' would be abs, btw. Earlier this year I went through a round of P90X. Loved the core workout and the ab workout. I hated the yoga workout but I bet that yoga workout did more good for me (I'm not real flexible) than the others. I felt that those 3 workouts were really helpful for golf (and softball). In my next round of P90X, I hope to miss that yoga workout less often (even though I hated it).
  15. There is so much junk going around about Favre and so much of it is just BS. Don't buy into the media (ESPN, in particular) hype. Farve finished the season, told the Vikings he'd see how he felt and let them know if he was going to play. They said that was fine. He had his ankle surgery, started working out with the high school kids he works out with and is doing exactly what he told the Viking's he'd do (and that they OK'd). He'd let them know when he knows. In the mean time Sage threw for 300+ yards last week letting everyone know that the team will be just fine either way. Of course they'll be better than Farve. Yesterday 3 of Brett's teammates flew down to see him. No need for all the media hype. These are veteran players who have played with him before and want their best shot at a ring so they gave it a shot. That's cool. The ridiculous media coverage of Farve getting on a plane and of him helping coach kids, isn't Brett's doing. He just went to the airport and caught a ride to Minn. ESPN shouldn't be showing coverage of him getting on and off the plane and all that, it's pitiful and it's their hype not his. I hope he comes back to play and kicks butt and has fun doing it.
