  1. All spectators yelling out things like that should be thrown out. Golf tournaments don't need boors like him.
  2. If a guy is good enough to get onto the PGA Tour, then he obviously has reached a skill level that exceeds an amateur golfer's skill level. He's made the choice to become a pro and play against other professionals. IMHO, he shouldn't have the right to say, "Well, I don't want to be a pro anymore. I now want to compete against amateurs." Doesn't make much sense to me. So a former PGA pro could theoretically win the U.S. Amateur? Not right.
  3. I heard him say something so stupid last weekend and I can't remember what it was. I wanted to post it here. The funny thing is that I really liked him as a player. Then, when he got cancer, I was really rooting for him to get well and not lose his arm. He went through a lot. I hope he goes on the Senior Tour when his time comes. But his commentary is from hunger.
  4. There are just too many great golfers in the world now for me to believe that anyone will ever win 6 Open's (either "The Open" or "The U.S. Open.") But who would have thought that anyone after Jack would have won over 80 tournaments and also held all 4 majors at the same time? That didn't look too likely just before Tiger entered our lives. So, while I don't believe it will happen, at the same time, I do think that it is within the realm of possibility.
  5. 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.
  7. 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!!"
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Totally agree. He comes out with one platitude after another, and sometimes it's cringeworthy.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Is it racist to say that black players dominate professional American basketball? Even if it's true? That would make me a racist?
  14. Good! Then I can't attribute his recent play to foolishness.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. That was his big mistake! He obviously did not need that extra distance and now he's paying the price for being foolish. If you're winning tournaments and if you're winning Majors do not change a thing!
  20. I was wrong. He hasn't done nearly as well as I thought. Maybe I'll be right in the long run. but right now I misjudged his ability as a golfer.
  21. In Brooks's post-win press conference, he said he got pissed at somebody on TV who said something negative about him. Who was he referring to? Was it Brandel?
