  1. You're supposed to do the same thing in pool, the other sport I play, by staring at the object ball instead of the cue ball. It has to do with trusting your stroke there, and I assume the same in golf. I'm a lot better at pool than I am at golf and I still can't do it.
  2. Gah, what a dunderhead mistake I made. I just did a search for him real quick to get a picture. I thought the one on the right was him with a shaved mustache. My bad.
  3. Exactly. The way I determine if the ball matters to me is I ask myself this question: "Can I afford to lose a dozen of them in the water, over the fence, out of bounds etc?" I usually buy the 2 dozen refurbished for 20 bucks or 15 top flites for 10 bucks.
  4. Leave the flag in, angle it slightly and yank it out quickly. The flip your ball up with your putter and catch it in your shirt pocket. You can scream "Booya" every time if you want to look extra cool. Of course there may be ants clinging to the ball.
  5. That's good to know. It didn't strike me as something he would do, but I wasn't really paying attention at the end to remember it. I know a lot of people that hate him simply because of the color of his skin, but he's never given me a reason to not like him. So I'll keep on.
  6. I read in one article bashing him that he didn't shake Yangs hand after the match and he left the press conference really early. Is that true?
  7. Wow I can't believe noone mentioned "The Walrus". Of course now he looks more like John Goodman.
  8. I don't think it's a common courtesy thing as far as whoever is winning. I think he just does it because he knows the crowd is going to roar like crazy after he does anything. It's not really fair to make your partner putt during that kind of noise.
  9. I eat single digits for breakfast...three of 'em! Not that it matters but I feel it would be 9 or less.
  10. I couldn't find any other threads on the subject but I thought it was an interesting change. I only caught a few snippets on Sunday, but from what I could gather he was basically staring at the hole while he putted. It seemed to work out pretty good for him, considering how he's been putting lately.
  11. Wow, I just saw a news interview with him where he was joined on the course by the reporter. He was playing with his shirt off and no shoes, I think I'm blind. He posted a message on his facebook stating he was leaving it: I AM ANNOUNCING THAT I AM SHUTTING DOWN MY FACEBOOK--CAN'T TAKE THESE NEGATIVE COMMENTS WHEN I'M TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH MY TRUE FANS. SORRY, BUT THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT Probably based on comments like this one: Declan way to go my arse. Pull your ^*&^ together man or get off the block......and ps, i know a guy who $&*&*% your wife.
  12. I never understood this attitude. I've been to several Master's practice rounds and even my wife, who doesn't play golf, went out and got a pair of cleats. It's a pain getting up and down some of the hills. A lot of these courses don't have cart paths and not every one on this board is a 16 year old on a high school golf team.
  13. I just saw an announcement that he was given a sponsor's exemption to the upcoming Wyndham tournament.
  14. Cough, basketball, figure skating, gymnastics cough The whole point of adding sports to the Olympics is to bring in new viewers. More people are going to watch to see if Tiger Woods can get a gold medal than they will if Joe Podunk from Bumfunk, Egypt will struggle for his bronze and be on a Weedies box with Michael Phelps.
  15. I'd heard the name Moe Norman but couldn't remember where exactly. That's definitely an interesting swing and he seemed to be consistent with it. I'm suprised they don't mention how far back away from the ball he started the club head, it was back almost a foot it seemed.
