  1. I loved Cutter Sound. Is the revamped course still there. If so, what is the name? This is the most depressing thread I have ever seen. Many courses in South Florida have closed or are closing and it's very upsetting. And to see a deserted course can bring a tear to your eye I swear.
  2. I didn't see the date on the first post so I was wondering "Why is he bringing all of this up now?" Ha!
  3. I think that's pretty bad advertising just to have a big P. Sure, I asked what it stood for and others will ask too. But so many people won't ask, so the advertising won't reach them even though they see it.
  4. The PGA Tour didn't treat Vijay very well, did they? I'm referring to the deer spray issue and the holding of his checks. Does anyone here remember this? Vijay sued the PGA Tour, I believe. Does anyone know whatever happened with that lawsuit?
  5. I was referring to the pole results which showed that the majority of voters were okay with Zinger.
  6. I'm not spending 5 seconds in jail let alone 5 years. And I do believe that I'd get a hole-in-one, too. But you never know. So I won't take that bet.
  7. Wow Daryl, I totally agree and have said as much in other posts. And you're so right about his annoying voice. And he's boring. Did you see him with Jack today? Nothing. I see we're in the minority here. Nevertheless I'm glad I'm not imagining Paul's weak style.
  8. Thanks. And feel free to delete this thread now if you so choose.
  9. What what a great coincidence happened today in professional sports. Two 55-year old men, the golfer Vijay Singh, and the bowler, Norm Duke, had the chance to be winners at their respective professional tournaments. Today Norm Duke won his tournament beating guys 30 years younger than him. And Vijay came very close to winning. And Norm Duke won last week as well! And on the Senior PGA Tour, Mark O'Meara won his tournament at the age of 62, beating guys 12 years younger than him. Being older is no reason not to be a champion. Let's hear it for the old guys!
  10. What does the big "P" on Ricky's hat stand for?
  11. I should have checked earlier. You're right -- Jerry and Miller were not related.
  12. Our players want to win. It doesn't matter who the captain is. I think the players should do their own pairing, too. Why does a captain have to be exciting? I want the players to be exciting, not the captain. That "pod" theory went out the window, too, last time. Another brilliant idea.
  13. I think long pants should be enforced during regular tournament play. Other than that, I don't care.
  14. You're right. He didn't. Know-it-all's didn't like the deal that Kuchar made with his temp caddy and they shamed him into giving a heck of a lot more. Speaking of a regular caddy: Does he deserve $100,000 (or more -- using the 10% figure) if his player wins? So, yes, Sergio, of course! Kuchar, on the other hand, deserved applause.
  15. I believe Miller Barber is Mr. X. Am I right? Jerry, I believe is/was his brother. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
  16. I take huge divots with my wedge, but I ALWAYS replace them or, if I'm down south, fill them with sand.
  17. I give him a "1." I like Paul, but he's a dull golf analyst. To be honest, my opinion of him was formed when he was on Fox and I was very disappointed in him. I wish Justin Leonard had gotten the job. He has a smile in his voice when he's commentating. There's no joy in Paul's voice and he gives you one platitude after another. Think of Ben Wright, think of Ken Venturi, think of Johnny Miller. Think of Gary or Feherty. Paul suffers horribly in comparison. Paul was always an exciting player to watch, that's for sure. I wish he could bring some of that excitement to his new job. Keep in mind that he was with Fox and this is not his first time doing this, so I don't know how much better he'll get.
  18. Phil admitted (on Monday morning) that he had been wrong to have wanted to continue. He thanked Casey for making the right choice for him by deciding not to continue. Phil said that sometimes he fails to see the big picture. // Phil played amazingly on Sunday. His knock-down iron shots were totally masterful. He looked like the young Phil -- or, better yet, the young Tiger.
  19. The PGA Tour should tell him that if he wants to play on the PGA Tour he will have to put up a $100,000 bond to cover the cost of any damage he causes by his childish and irresponsible behavior on the golf course and that he'll get it back at the end of the season, and that if he doesn't like it, he can play elsewhere. Could you imagine if he had done this at the Masters?!! As far as I'm concerned, he acted like a madman. Damaging one green in a fit of anger is a total outrage....but FIVE??? I wouldn't want him on my course, I'll tell you that.
  20. I was talking about Tour players. So many ways to swing a club, though, that's for sure. As a matter of fact, there's 6,000,000,000,000 (six trillion) ways to swing a club -- according to some mathematician writing in Golf Digest many years ago. If you consider where each body part can be at any given time and their relationship to one another and the various angles you can use, etc. etc. etc., then that number is really is quite believable, when you home in on the permutations and combinations.
  21. I promise you this. You don't see his swing on tour -- maybe Furyk (kind of). I mean, if it weren't so unusual, why would they be talking about it? Anyway, it works very well for him. He hit a 350 yard drive down the fairway today.
  22. It's totally unusual. Unless you're a Miller Barber fan, that is.
  23. I hope it becomes a big fiasco. Why should it become an aid for a player who putts the ball too hard? That rule is just stupid. Almost as stupid as giving Li that penalty. So wrong!
