  1. But it’s not actually longer, it just has an increased range of motion
  2. OK, so I can understand the perspective that it is temporarily considered longer when stretched (being elastic) when force is applied to it. What happens when you remove the applied force? How is it longer, from that perspective?
  3. But is the muscle actually longer... or is it just reaching it’s full range of motion?
  4. I don’t think it is a matter of opinion (and I don’t mean for that to sound rude). Length and range of motion are not one in the same. If you can explain to me, from a kinesiology or physiological sense, how one would actually lengthen a muscle (I.e. increase the length of a muscle fiber), I’m all ears (or eyes really).
  5. This whole built like a linebacker thing.

    Umm, maybe a high school linebacker haha. Those guys would get pancaked, every time. I have no doubt “some” of the guys on tour are in general good athletes, and could have been really good at other sports as well. But it’s ridiculous to compare them to a football player, extremely different sport.
  6. Beware of the sick Golfer

    @Nutsmacker I’ve had days in sports where I hadn’t felt very good, and wound up performing very well. It’s happened with golf as well, where I didn’t feel good, so “took it easy” and wound up playing really well. I believe back when Walter Payton set the single game rushing record (275 yards, at the time), he had been battling the flu and a fever all week. He almost didn’t play in that game. Congrats on the great round!
  7. What ball, and why

    Snell has a sample pack, 2 sleeves MTB, 2 sleeves Get Sum. It’s worth giving them a try (even if you’re happy with the OnCore)

  9. What ball, and why

    They are really a Nassau ball, with Kirkland stamped on them (at least the original run was). I think @tehuti knows Kirkland is Costco... he’s likely making the point that there is limited availability. As far as my go to ball... Snell MTB. Best bang for the buck out there, IMO. I do also play ProV1 (but only when I get them as a gift, or I’m in a bind and need to purchase some balls immediately).
  10. Titleist vs Mizuno vs Taylormade etc.

    @Kudu My last few sets of irons have been in the Mizuno MP line, and I’ve been happy with all of them. All the irons you listed above are nice irons, you’ll want to hit all of them, and make the decision yourself. Go with what you like best, they’ll all perform well. As far as wear... don’t worry about it. All clubs take a beating over time
  11. Why you shouldn't exercise to lose weight [Vox]

    I gave you a thumbs up for the middle part of your post... the remainder I disagree with. Nutrition is very important, but it is not the end all. Exercise results in an increase of mitochondria. Mitochondria produce energy (e.g. burn fat)... not to mention all the other benefits of exercise that help one to be healthier. Exercise & Nutrition => health (I’ve never heard of anyone completely sedentary who is considered healthy)
  12. 1st Golf Holidays

    I don’t think I could play that much golf in 16 days, I’d need a day off every few days. I think the most days I’ve played in a row is 4. But it sounds like it was a great holiday for you, thanks for sharing the adventure!
  13. I've been harping about this forever - give people space

    I go to the best available spot, regardless if there’s someone around or not. Of course, that doesn’t mean I enjoy crowding anyone.
  14. If you could ONLY carry two wedges, which ones?

    I originally read the OP as appearing to leave the PW out of the decision (I.e. not considering it a wedge)... as he talks about opening up his 9i and PW. So I based my reply on such assumption. Re-reading it, I misunderstood what he was saying about his 9i (i.e. opening it would replace his need for a PW). Now that I’m catching that , my response will require more thought. I’d def want a 54 or 56, but need to think about flighted distances to decide whether a PW or GW would give me the best gaps.
  15. As you and @MarvChamp have noted, it’s more likely due to the swing itself. Hybrids are typically more forgiving than long irons. Hit some 5 hybrids and see how you feel about them compared to your 5i. If it winds up being a better result, then choose whichever loft gives you the best distance gap.
