  1. I'll never forget something that Lee Trevino said: "It doesn't matter how you take it back."

    If he's a "1" on a scale of "1 to 10" where "1" is boring and "10" is very exciting, who would you be giving a "10" to? I'll start. I would be giving a "10" to (in no particular order) Bubba, Tiger, Rahm, Sergio, Phil, Reed and Dustin. A volatile nature increases your chances of being a "10" on this scale.
  3. I also think the name sounds ridiculous but please don't accuse me of even thinking that they shouldn't have taken the money, the sponsor and the name. But that won't stop me from thinking the name sounds silly and ridiculous. Maybe the Shitz Company should have taken over the tour and called it "The Shitz Tour." How about "The Popeye's Chicken Tour?" Some names just don't belong. Or will take a while to get used to. "Hey Charlie! I made it to the Korn Ferry Tour!!"
  4. I hate to admit this but it makes me feel better after I've played badly. I say to myself, "If the top golfer in the world is struggling, then it's not so horrible if I'm struggling also." This is why Tiger's run was all the more remarkable.
  5. From what I saw, his swing is different. I believe he messed around with it and now he's confused as to what swing he wants to make. This is a common problem when you've been winning and then stop winning. You go searching when all you needed to do was keep everything the same and just remain patient. I believe this happened to Hunter Mahan as well.
  6. Totally agree. He comes out with one platitude after another, and sometimes it's cringeworthy.
  7. This is the kind of play that I've been expecting of him for quite a while. I can't wait to see how he does next week.
  8. That's a phenomenal score (to say the least) and it shows his potential. At the same time, that, in itself, doesn't augur a professional career.
  9. Is it racist to say that black players dominate professional American basketball? Even if it's true? That would make me a racist?
  10. Good! Then I can't attribute his recent play to foolishness.
  11. I got bitten up like crazy over the holiday. I'm still scratching up and down my arms. I use "Off" with Deet. It didn't seem to help. Does anyone use a mosquito repellent (store-bought or homemade) that does a great job keeping them away? I'm open to any and all suggestions.
  12. I heard on the Golf Channel, or read it in a magazine, that Spieth was trying to drive the ball further. I can't remember where I got that tidbit. And I thought at the time that that might not be a good thing for him, as it can screw up your timing and ruin other good things that you were doing. Now, if what I heard was false, then I can't attribute his mediocre recent play to that. The competition out there is fierce...and we know that golf is hard. Which I, perhaps falsely, attributed it to him trying for more distance. When he was winning those majors, I thought he was a fabulous driver of the ball.
  13. Your figures don't show how many errant drives he hit after going after distance. Wouldn't you agree that if you're doing spectacularly well, then leave well enough alone? If it ain't broke, then don't fix it. And from what I've read, he was trying to fix something that didn't need to be fixed.
  14. Whatever his distances were is irrelevant to my point. My point is that he shouldn't have worried about getting more distance and changed things to get more distance.
