  1. Atleast at 7 am it is!

    A man had two of the best tickets for the Masters. As he sits down, another man comes along and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him..

    "No", he says, "the seat is empty."
    "This is incredible!" said the man, "who in their right mind would have a seat like this, the biggest golfing event of the whole world, and not use it?"

    He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife was supposed to come with me, but she passed away. This is the first Masters we haven't been together since we got married."

    "Oh... I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. I guess you couldn't find someone else?.. a friend or relative or even a neighbour to take the seat?"

    The man shakes his head...

    . . . " No. They're all at the funeral. "

    The reason for this is that initial instinct to blame  the media, accuse the people making statements that put Woods in a bad light, and give him a free pass.

    Because he remains above scrutiny, yeah?

    Giving Tiger a free pass for what? Why should he be scrutinized for this?

  3. Who is Coby Bryant?

    But when you hear the crowd chanting "Rory, Rory, Rory, Rory" as he is walking up the fairway and onto the green, I think that shows where people are looking for the "next" face of golf.

I guarantee 99.99% of the people on here, including the ones posting in here would be at attention in a split second if she would get in that same outfit and said let's go... LOL at the response in this thread...

    If I was single, I wouldn't turn her down. I can always bring a couple of bags...

    Not everyone's feet fit well into traditional oxford looking shoes. Me being a good example. I have a very narrow heel and only the athletic looking shoes fit me right.

    With the potential to cost Phil money in the future, I don't blame him from stopping someone from libeling him.

    I'm still waiting for someone to say that Fowler and Cobra are a "good fit".

    Fowler and Cobra are a good fit!

    Didn't want you to wait too long, you may not have that much time left.

  8. I was going to use atrocious as my adjective.  However, after seeing yours I would have to upgrade mine to something slightly better than atrocious.

    When I write I'm usually just trying to get pencil on paper. I can be neat if I go really really slowly, but I just don't see much of a point. I can read it, and anything I need other people to read I type.

    P.S. That was my study guide on a history exam. Don't bother reading it, I enjoy history but there's a reason I'm a mechanical engineering major.

    Is says the top 75 that do not qualify for the fed ex cup. Don't the top 125 qualify for the fed ex? Or is it the top 120?

    So the top 125 still get their card.

    I wasn't. I have been watching a bit of British television lately and am fascinated by British slang.

    Would "I just took a piss" mean that I just made a joke or took a piss?

    As to not completely derail the thread I will get back on topic!  I don't know if Rory has more talent than Tiger.  How do you qualify that?
