  1. A theist is someone who believes in a god or gods. An atheist is someone who does not believe in a god or gods. In the same way that not collecting stamps is not considered a hobby...not believing in supernatural beings is not a belief. To insist otherwise is to commit an equivocation fallacy. Four egg sample: Do you believe in Santa Claus? I do not but that is beside the point. While I do not believe in Santa Claus I absolutely believe in what Santa represents. And I'm okay with a word having more than one connotation.
  2. Unfortunately...he was only 230 yards out. Might should have used a putter...and gripped down.
  3. The HP lap top I am using to post this was made in China. Thank goodness the hat I am wearing was made in Vietnam. It helps to off-set my FootJoy golf shoes...which were made in China.
  4. Enforce a shot limit. The goal of each player would be to make it as far along as possible before running out of shots. The farthest I've ever made it, with an allotment of 72, was thru 17.
  5. Reminds me of "I'll take you there". Might be re-imagined as "We can't go there".
  6. In simple terms, @Billy Z, there are two launch angles: optimum and sub-optimum. Club design has favored higher over lower since, at least, the 1970's. Advancements in manufacturing and metallurgy have exacerbated this trend. While it is certainly true that some models are aimed at the "more is better" crowd; there is some logic behind lower lofts. A club that consistently launches too high is no better than a club that consistently launches too low...assuming that the owner/operator is reasonably competent. At the end of a round it makes no difference what numbers are stamped on the sole of our clubs. If you fly the green, with a pitching wedge, and I stick the pin with an 8 iron...guess who is buying the drinks?
  7. I don't know how to do that.
  8. I bought some 59 cent (plus tax) pencil sharpeners.
  9. I pick out something, on the ground in front of the ball, and use that to align my feet when I address the ball. I take a rehearsal swing to see if the club is following the path I envision. Then I either make a small adjustment or swing away. Whenever possible I chose a line while waiting my turn...including tee shots.
  10. If I won the Masters the champion's dinner would be breakfast: Yellow perch, fried potatoes, eggs any style, toast and preserves, and tea. For dessert you could have more...or an adult beverage.
  11. The bars and restaurants, here in Dunwoody, are all closing at 9pm tomorrow. I'm thinking I might have to buy a shitload of cleaning supplies and spend my free time tightening up the crib. Aside from going to the grocery store there isn't much left to do.
  12. Every chip is a one-off. A chunk is a poorly played shot. If you do not make adjustments for eccentricity...the results will be inconsistent. Maddeningly so at times.
  13. Even if you do the work yourself; by the time you factor in the cost of the new shafts, and possibly grips, the tariff could be a couple hundred bucks...and that is predicated on buying the cheapest shafts available. If you are not looking to spend any more than that; buying another set is probably going to be the least expensive option.
  14. The uniforms give them away. That and the suspiciously consistent banter.
  15. @snapfade it is pretty obvious that the aliens are targeting specific individuals...not the population as a whole. Only those "in on it" are affected.
  16. The Coronavirus has improved my game. I no longer think about breathing in...only about breathing out. This gives me one less thing to think about. I'm like a Breatharian who, on the point of death, realizes they ought to eat something. All kidding aside: this shit may turn out to be the most significant event in my life. I just hope the hell it isn't.

    Love and Hate

    I love playing a shot that unfolds the way I imagined. I hate it when the juke box, at the Waffle House, is playing loud, crappy, music.
  18. Now that there are no sports on television...how are you filling out your leisure hours? I've been booting up old video games.
  19. You want to get peoples attention in the United States? Disrupt their sports menu. Or run out of toilet paper...either one. This isn't political. My bracket is no longer relevant.
  20. Painter's tape is blue and a 3 foot piece of it weighs next to nothing.
  21. A prosthetic finger could be used...so long as it was either pocketed, or reattached, before continuing play.
  22. Where do you place the cut-off date? I've got some clubs older than I am that I would not consider vintage...they are just old.
  23. Do the golf gods have names or specific spheres of influence? Last Sunday I was in good standing with the god of halfway decent drives but, apparently, had offended the god of 4 to 5 foot par putts.
  24. I think I understand what you are asking. If you replace your hybrids and then, a year down the road, get a newer, stronger, set of irons...would the longest iron and shortest hybrid have enough separation to warrant carrying them both? It's possible but the simplest solution would be to not worry about it and use whichever club the situation merited. It isn't always the case that distance, alone, is the determining factor when choosing a club. Anyway...good luck with whatever you decide to do. I don't think you can go "wrong" either way.
  25. It is refreshing to see a home video in which Dad doesn't take one in the stones.
