    6 - If your cabinets are truly custom. Firstly, congratulations that's mighty rare. Secondly, you will have to contact the builder to find out who did the work. Unless they were like me and stamped (literally) their name and logo on the bottom of every drawer.


    I think this is the case. The previous owner did mention that cabinets were Amish-made. I checked a few drawers and such, and there isn't any markings on them. The drawers are mostly high end plywood. The face of the cabinets look to be hardwood of some kind. There is some areas were the finish has rubbed off and you can see the grain underneath.

    We call them "good drives" in LSW. A good drive is one that goes about the normal distance you normally hit a drive, and is basically "between the ropes." Sometimes you get a bad lie, just as you sometimes get a great lie and line to the green when you hit it into the trees, but those even out. More good drives "between the ropes" lowers your score, especially with the rough we tend to play

    I can attest to this being important. If every one of my drives ends up in a position where I don't have to hit a fairway bunker shot, punch out, or is OB then I had a very good driving day. The typical rough is not that penalizing.

    Walter Hagen spoke very complimentary about  Ben Hogan's golf & swing.  Salient was the observation: Hogan employed a 'nonsegmented' swing where as everyone else, Haig included, used a 'segmented' swing.  Will someone please explain the difference between Segmented & Nonsegmented as it pertains to the golf swing?  TIA,  -a-

    I think its mostly someone trying to come up with an adjective and doing a bad job at it. Just my take. I've never heard of these terms before to describe a swing.

    The lowest round of 58 was done by a short hitter ( Furyk).

    I think on a short course and a par 70. So, it wasn't the most under par. Still impressive though.

    Short knockers are still making it out there. 

    Not as much as they use to. In most cases, not on courses that favor longer hitters.

    Dialing back the ball is stupid.

    I agree

    Architects can find other ways to make a course challenging other than length.

    Not many new golf courses getting made these days. Most golf courses will not make major changes. We are kinda stuck for now. Most of us do not play on PGA tour courses.

    The school district prefers to take the easy way out and ensure there's no chance they get any blowback from a student getting COVID-19 at the event regardless of how minimal the likelihood is that they contract it.

    Might as well not let the kids even go to school ever again with the number of school shootings (sarcasm). Schools are not safe anymore. 

  6. The only thing I can understand is the liability and getting sued. Though, I am sure that all the kids parents signed a form stating PIAA is not liable for any injuries or what not. 

    to me, it’s just the fact they must punish the entire school because of a few people. There is no nuance at all. It’s just a binary decision. Like somehow it’s preferable treatment to allow them to play golf.

    It’s just pure idiocy.

    My post was more about the stock market and the need for stimulus during CoVID and the affects of not getting it after Jerome Powell spoke. I’m an active trader and follow the markets closely. Hope the markets rebound strong. I bought some inverse options to hedge positions just in case.

    This thread about the actual COVID-19. There is another thread about golfing during COVID-19. Politics is discouraged in this forum. If you want to start a thread on the stock market, I am sure you could. In no way should it be about politics, since that is discouraged here.

    Do you ever open the face to create more loft? 

    Yep, but the technique is the same. I just need to adjust the speed because more loft means a more glancing blow. Most of the time you can hit pitch shots with a square club face and get plenty of loft. 

  9. Tiger mentions that he would hit one perfect shot per tournament. If he hit two perfect shots then he would win by a big margin. 

    Now, perfect shot is not the same as a pure shot. I thought it was interesting to hear Tiger view on that expectation. Maybe it even wasn't an expectation, but just an observation.
