    Betting???

    We play either of these two; $1 a hole straight up, pushes carry over to the next hole or $5 lowest front score, $5 lowest back score and $5 lowest total score. No handicaps, we are all pretty equal. It’s not so much the money that we play for it’s the shit talking that you had to pay money. And we will let the rest of the group know just how good lunch tasted the next day cause it was free.

    Overrated/Underrated (Golf) Topic

    That’s fine we can disagree no hard feelings Just keep this in mind, there is a reason that pretty much every major college offers sports psychology. And lots of major athletes in lots of sports pay lots of money for sessions with them. And I don’t think many amateurs are standing in line for an appointment

    Overrated/Underrated (Golf) Topic

    Amateur level overrated pro level, including top level college players underrated. Amateurs are way behind skill wise so of course the mental toughness/ focus isn’t that big of a factor, hell most of us talk or have music going during our shots, or can hold a business conversation while playing. A pro hears the smallest sound or sees a little movement and has to step back and refocus. There are numerous examples in different sports where mentally the top level athlete checked out or had a mental block and couldn’t perform. I can think of 4 number 1 ranked golfers right now that had a mental block that they had to overcome and a couple never overcame it. Plus baseball players, UFC fighters. It’s not just course management or making the right shot decision it’s being able to calm your nerves and deal with the adrenaline. Ive seen two professional athletes struggle to literally place a ball on a tee in a long drive competition in mesquite due to nerves. To say the mental game is overrated is just not accurate.

    Favorite Golf Quotes

    It’s funny you’d say this and then write this........... There are tons of extremely talented golfers that don’t make it due to folding under pressure and that is 100% mental.

    Classic/Old School Golf Pics Thread

    This was my first favorite player back when my dad and I were first getting into golf. He was a really bad example for new golfers. His swing was so chill and hit the ball for some distance. Then my dad and I would go hack the shit out of the local baseball field and think wtf, Freddie makes it look so simple 😂 should have known then I’d be in for a lifetime of frustration. We got started around 1992. You’d think I’d be a lot better by now 😤

    The Match: Tiger vs. Phil Showdown for $9M

    This was very reminiscent of the early UFCs before Dana White got involved. Very raw, unorganized seeming. The potential is there if it can survive a couple mediocre airings.

    The Match: Tiger vs. Phil Showdown for $9M

    Their own money would be way more enticing. The 9 isn’t from their pockets and I’m pretty sure the side bets will be worked just right by their CPAs to go down as write offs/ donations. But yea iacas I’m with you put your own money up and things change in a hurry

    Is pace of play (or slow play) a real problem?

    That line is best answer out of this whole thread. I might change “problem” to “difference”. Everyone has a different agenda when hitting the course and unfortunately not everyone’s agendas line up causing “differences” in time management on the course.
  10. Lots of younger golfers don’t realize that the saying “he hit that one on the screws” comes from the persimmon era.
  11. I don’t see why you couldn’t get a modern grip over the butt section. Unless what you have is differnt than what comes up On search results. The grips definitely look like “wraps” but they seem to be one piece.

    The Match: Tiger vs. Phil Showdown for $9M

    I think this would have been cool to do like they did i think around 99 with woods and duval. Wide world of sports special. But then again the censorless aspect of PPV will be fun if they actually talk a little $hit.

    Golf Game Variations

    My only concern would be pace of play but I don't think we'd really hold anyone up. Probably get a few wtf looks hahaha

    Golf Game Variations

    Not sure how to title the thread so that's what I got. Anyone do any fun golf game variations with your normal crew. Not gambling or anything. For example, my buddies and I were talking about some fun ways to change up the routine and we came up with choosing whatever 3 clubs you wanted my choices would 6/7 iron, 56 and putter and then playing a round from the forward tees. Anyone ever do this? Stupid idea? Let me know or share your suggestions for us.

    Will Golf Be the Next Sport to Require Helmets?

    It’s gonna take a hell of a lot lawsuits. Most of us alive today would never see this day. However the grounds keepers at my course do wear hard shelled sun hats while working.
