  1. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    This movie definitely left me with a different feeling than any other Star Wars has. Im no ultra fan but definitely a fan. I think you have to see it and then react. I don’t know if we are open to further discussion of detail or not. I avoided everything related except one trailer before viewing so I had no idea what to expect. It was stimulating for sure!
  2. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    Lots of cool stuff in the movie. It was stimulating indeed. Withholding further info so as not to ruin anything.
  3. New Rules for Video Call-Ins

    Ok, I was accused of trolling this topic but I was not trying to do that. I will not go over my points but they are here in the thread. I must say though that If I place myself in the shoes of one who believes every slight infraction must be penalized at all costs I cannot simultaneously hold the belief that there is a qualifier to that belief in terms of when the breach occurred. A breach is a breach. My personal opinion is that I don’t like seeing major sports events decided by controversial officiating/minor rules infractions. In all sport I want to see the players play. I don’t want to see major penalties for minor infractions. I am smart enough to know that no sport will ever be officiated perfectly and that doesn’t bother me a bit. Also on Lexi, my opinion on watching her reaction to the news is that she did not intentionally cheat. I know in the sense of the argument here that’s quite irrelevant, but I also wanted to add that. Thats all I wanted to say on this.
  4. New Rules for Video Call-Ins

    @David in FL All breaches must be penalized unless the breach evidence comes to light twenty seconds after the trophy has been handed out. In that case penalizing an obvious breach is impractical.
  5. New Rules for Video Call-Ins

    In order for the rules to Be applied equally for the duration of the tournament (including final round) they would have to allow for review time after the final round closes that is equal to the time from the beginning of the first round and THEN announce the official result. Id be fine with that. As it is now if it’s final round and my ball moves a bit while removing a loose impediment or if I may have grounded my. Club in a hazard or brushed two grains of sand on takeaway in a bunker why would I call it on myself?
  6. New Rules for Video Call-Ins

    But you are okay with it if it comes to light after the trophy has been handed out?
  7. New Rules for Video Call-Ins

    Also, what about a scenario where a player is two shots back coming into a risk reward hole but gets a text saying that their friend a viewer noticed a penalty for the leader the previous day? The friend did not call in purposely until the last moments of the leaders final round in order that the leader would not know they need to make up shots. The whole tournament is ruined by this. Everyone is going on different leaderboard info.
  8. New Rules for Video Call-Ins

    That’s not it. Each round counts equally to the score. Yet for some reason the final round is not subject to the same review as the previous 3? Just because the tournament is over?

    Great to see that the USGA and RA came to their senses!
  10. Athletes in Every Sport are Better

    Here’s 100 dash progression. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Men's_100_metres_world_record_progression Athletes are progressing but not by huge amounts. Genetics are what they are they don’t change much in a generation or two. Yes, they are a bit faster stronger. Golf is a game that’s not dependent on the limits of strength but rather on skill. Equipment is responsible for the majority of the distance gains we see.
  11. Athletes in Every Sport are Better

    Tennis is an interesting one. New racquets are much lighter and more powerful and the string technology has advanced greatly creating more spin. They slowed down the grass courts! So now the serve and volley style is dead. Its moved to a power baseline game. Even at Wimbledon! The game is much more one dimensional now. Boring. Whether it’s better now or not a dimension of the game has been lost due to tech. I think golf is similar because working the ball is largely a thing of the past. That said if Tigers healthy I’m watching.
  12. Mac O'Grady Swings

    There’s too many functional ways to swing to get stuck on a one dimensional approach imho. As an instructor you should be able to move folks in a positive direction from wherever they are not try to pigeonhole them into a certain thing.
  13. When Do You Lay Up?

    I will lay up when not doing so brings in too much chance of hitting out of play or brings really bad things into play. Some nicer courses I play are very clear about how the par fives are handled. For me they are three shooters because getting aggressive on the second brings a lot of hurt into play and he holes have obvious wide layup areas. I layup when there’s no other option basically.
  14. Hideki's situation. Hear me out!!!

    Hideki got away with one there. Big time.
  15. Grades for Tiger's Performance

    A What more could he ask for? Id go A plus but for a little wooden on some short shots. If he’s healthy not saying it’s his A game but he deserves an A for first time out Glad to watch him play golf and hope he stays healthy for years
