  1. 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational Discussion Thread

    Jack would have hit it in the fairway.
  2. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    I assure you he would have been far more welcome in Memphis in the early 60s than Pete Brown or Charlie Sifford. Thankfully by the mid 70s Lee Elder was welcomed. I'm sure there was a few that didn't like it but they kept to themselves. I followed him during a practice round in the mid 70s and didn't hear any derogatory things at all. He had game too.
  3. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Lee Trevino, Roberto De Vicenzo, Lee Elder, Charlie Sifford, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Pete Brown, Homero Blancas all played the tour in the 60s. The Caucasian Only clause was revoked in 1961.
  4. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Let's face the simple fact that people who watched Jack when they were young will say Jack and people that watched Tiger when they were young will say Tiger. The folks that watch Hogan when they were young well most of them aren't around anymore. No use arguing about it, no minds will ever be changed.

    I think right is the place to be on 15, Trees on the left would mean a big hook going for the green on the second shot and risking going over cause you ain't spinning a big hook.

    If he did pull it off it would rate right up there with Jack's 86 win. Would the roars be as loud? I'd love to see Phil in the hunt too.
  7. And Hogan often consulted people on his swing, and what they saw. But Hogan could be a real A hole when asked for advice, ask Gary Player. Story is Player asked Hogan to look at his swing and give him a few tips. Hogan asked Player what company's clubs he was playing. Player said Dunlap. Hogan told him to go ask Mr. Dunlap for advice.
  8. Which move changed your game for good?

    A year's hard work on the putting green. Wouldn't leave it till I found satisfaction in something I did. Amazing when you have confidence in making every three footer how your scores go down.
  9. 2018 Valspar Golf Championship in Tampa, FL

    Lots of thoughts about Tiger being exhausted. He'll have to be in shape at Augusta with those hills, especially the walk up 18.
  10. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Jack would have hit a 3 wood at 18 today if he was in Tiger's situation.
  11. 2018 Valspar Golf Championship in Tampa, FL

    Definitely not a Tiger lover but I'll hand it to him, he impressed me doing what he's done after all he's been through. Great round by Paul Casey.
  12. Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame

    Maybe there should be a special section for a**holes and steroid users. I don't think there was ever a bigger a**hole than Ty Cobb but Bonds comes close, read about his college career. Bonds, McGwire, Sosa, Clemons, Pete, Palmero, and A Rod could then be in the hall. Bonds the greatest hitter, what a joke. As far as the greatest hitter no one with the possible exception of Lou Gehrig or Ted Williams, touches Babe Ruth. He had a lifetime average of 3.42, only 2 points less than Williams, with 714 HRs and only 8399 at bats. Think what his batting numbers would have been if he had been a full time outfielder. Give Ruth another 1448 at bats, which Bonds has more than Ruth and which is roughly 3 years worth and only a paltry by Ruth standards, 25 HRs a year, and he's the HR leader. On top of that Ruth started his career as a great pitcher with a lifetime e.r.a. of 2.28, 94 wins and only 46 losses. Only Walter Johnson rivaled Ruth in the years Ruth was a pitcher.
  13. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    That's just the way I took it since you were comparing him to Tiger's obvious number 2.
  14. Highest Price You've Paid For Green Fees

    Staying at the hotel I paid $225 to play Pinehurst 2 in 1996 and $12 to play Davy Crockett Golf Course and Goat Ranch in Memphis.the same week.
  15. Dilemma with old wedge...keep for prctice or sell
