    Good Exercises for Improving Your Core Strength?

    I’m reading a book called Foundation. It’s a method to retrain the body to use the muscles that support the back .

    Official Fast Food Fry Rankings

    I was never a big fan of McDonald's fries. I would claim Five Guy's fries as more superior than McDonalds.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Matt Kuchar apologizes, agrees to pay Mayakoba Classic caddie 'El Tucan' full amount requested - CBSSports.com Finally (?) this saga has come to a close 90% sure that Kuchar will get no redemption for doing this, sadly.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    The guy made over 120 dollars per hour to carry a bag. I don't care what normal caddies make. This guy made a lot of money for carrying a bag for 4 days. This guy made a good amount of money. If he wants to complain, I will spend money to fly with Kuchar to his next even overseas and gladly take 3-5K for doing so. This doesn't matter. His net worth is less than 46 million. Winnings does not equal net worth. He's probably only kept a 40-50% of that after taxes and expenses. No it doesn't. Which clearly explains your overreaction. Social media is a plague upon our lives. I don't think he made a mistake. In the end, no one can nail down a number he should have gave. People will blame him no matter what he does because he is a public figure. This isn't about money, it's about appealing to these crazy social media addicts so these sports news networks get clicks. The only way he gets any applause would be if he donated his entire winnings to the guy. There would be someone out there who could say, "He's made enough over his career he should give everything away.".
  5. I just received my pair of shoes today. I love the shoe bag that comes with the shoes. They might be one of the more right out-of-box comfortable pair of shoes I've put on. Right now, I have the 10.5 size. I tend to wear a 10 wide. I can tell maybe the shoes are a smidge big. I wonder if a size 10 would work better, especially once the shoes wear in a bit.

    Overrated/Underrated (Golf) Topic

    Underrated, I would have said overrated before I got my Edel Putter. After seeing how dramatic a change a person can get just by removing or adding alignment marks on a putter was an eye opener. Then you start to pay attention to other golfers on the course, and you see them aiming way offline only to try to save the putt by manipulating the putter dramatically. A properly fitted putter is a big relief.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    I am saying it is not. How much money does Kuchar have in the bank right now? You have no clue. He could be the type of person who is living off of the winnings of tournament by tournament. To him, 50K could be substantial. You are just claiming he has the resources because he happen to make that much over his career. That doesn't mean he has that much. There are a lot of athletes that end up struggling the rest of their lives after they retire because they spent everything during their career. You just see big numbers and say, "Oh he can afford that". The guy got paid a substantial amount of money for 24 hours of work. Fly me down to the next country Kuchar is going to play in. I'll take 3000 dollars to carry a bag.

    That could be true. I wasn't sure either, it's been a while since that happened. I just remember him rushing on.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    So you are saying that Kuchar needs to give up 62% of his weekly average pay to his caddie? That is what you are advocating if you want Kuchar to give this guy 50K. Because, the premise is, Kuchar should out of the kindness of his own heart, give the caddie 50K for 24 hours of work. Give the man 2,000 dollars an hour to carry a bag. Fine, that means his regular caddie should be paid more, right? His regular caddie does substantially more work than this guy would. He should be paid more. It also means that he should pay every local caddie that much. Because, the question asked of Kuchar would be, Why not that guy as well? If that is the case, then Kuchar must pay over 50K per event for his caddies. Averaging 80-85K an event, he would be giving a substantial amount. That is why your logic does not work.It is a financial burden because of the outcome due to the spiral of guilt people will throw on Kuchar. Kuchar did a good thing by giving this man a good percentage of his average event winnings as payment. So no, these golfers do not need to subject themselves to the guilt trip that bleeding heart advocates try to impose on them. This is why the handout mentality is a toxic one. It's a nice thing to do, but it begs the question, "Why not someone else". At some point it has to spot. Then at that point Kuchar is an asshole for not giving every caddie 50K. Might as well stop it at the first person, especially when the person is getting 136 dollars an hour to carry a bag.

    Adam Scott Begs For Slow Play Penalty

    I've seen something similar happen once. I remember one golfer was done with his playing partner and finished the hole before the guy even got to the point of hitting his 2nd shot. He didn't want to get a slow play penalty.

    How Much Should You Pay For A Putter?

    Over $350, but it came with an extensive putter fitting.

    Big applause to Scott and Koepka who have recently spoken out against the glacial pace the PGA Tour players are setting.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    This type of logic is BS in my opinion. He's made 46 million over 15 seasons. Then you got to consider that he probably ends up losing a big chunk of it to taxes. Let's say he loses 40% of it to taxes. He's probably keeping 1.5 to 2.0 million a year in winnings. By looking at the PGA Tour Top 10 Finishes, Kuchar plays in about 20-23 events a year. So, after taxes he makes about 80-85K a tournament. At 3K a caddie, he's giving up 3-5% of his average winnings to the Caddie. If you tell someone they can have 3-5% profit sharing, that is a pretty decent number. I would like 3-5% profit sharing of Apple stock. ;) Basically you are asking that he gives up 60-65% of his after tax winnings per tournament to the caddie! Let's say he gives away 50K per tournament, that would be giving away 1.1 million dollars over the course of one season. Guess what, if he gives out 50K then all he gets asked about is, "What about the next guy?" Yea, this is a big misconception on what Kuchar is actually paying someone. People just see big total numbers and don't break it down. It gets a bit better for Kuchar if you consider the other expenses of playing on the PGA Tour that I did not account for. That 3-5% can easily jump to 6-10% if he's a bit luxurious in his accommodations while traveling to these 20-24 events. Let's take into account that this guy is being paid 136 dollars an hour to carry a bag (assuming a 5.5 hour round)
