  1. Rocco is one of my favorite golfers. But a guy who came within a hairs breath of losing his card, and has battled back injuries his whole career, doesn't need to be giving one of the best golfers in history swing tips....
  2. The average man hits it farther than the average woman yes. But not farther than the average lady pro. At least not enough to have a tremendous advantage. A scratch Golfer can play a non championship course to even par or a little better. An LPGA player could play a non championship course to 6,7, or 8 under with no problem. A non pro male who plays to scratch would get eaten alive on the LPGA.
  3. Better Question: Can this forum go one full week without someone starting a Tiger will never win/Tiger Sucks thread?
  4. I passed a small group of ninjas on the street a few years ago. I gave them a nod of respect so subtle that it's possible they didn't see it, but hey it's me, they should have been paying attention. Not one to stand for this insult I simply stood arms crossed, they got my meaning this time and readied themselves for battle. I was planning on going hand for hand only until one ninja pulled out Kusari-Gama and I realized i needed something more substantial. I reached into my pocket and only had 8 inches of dental floss and a buffalo nickel. I quickly took out the Ninja with the kusari-gama with a spinning buffalo nickel to the adams apple, The Ninja's outnumbered me and gave my fists and feet a tremendous beating with their heads and testicles. Just wanting to show respect I didn't kill, only shamed. I raised my arms in victory and gave a Klingon battle cry that Harry Potter himself would cower from. Two blondes grabbed my arms and professed their undying love and devotion to me. I took them home and had them cook me a steak, medium rare with sauteed mushrooms. That was my one and only fight.....

    Off the top of my head Paddy Harrington, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, I'm sure there have been more. They've all been billed at some point or another as "The Next Tiger" after a good finish or a win. Until the next young kid wins then it's their turn.... I hope Rory becomes the next Rory, not the next Tiger...

    How many "The New Tigers" have their been the last ten years? Every person that has won a tournament in their early 20's seems to get called that....

    To Phil's credit, he does have the most incredible recovery/short game that the PGA has ever seen...

    Was hoping Rage Kage (KJ Choi) would come out of the gate a little better. Hope he makes the cut. LOL @ Jeebus...I mean Phil Mickelson
  9. Yeah, you could probably find some GREAT deals for a set of Blades at Pawn Shops or Garage Sales...
  10. Have you had any lessons? I went from total Hack to breaking 100 with just 2 lessons. 2 more lessons and I was breaking 90. I'm now a pretty solid Bogey Golfer. Haven't played as much this year though, but Bogey Golf makes you better than most casual players and can make for some fun rounds....
  11. Bunkerputt- I will try to give them a listen and get back to you, probably by PM as I imagine this thread will be dead by the time I can get through most of them. I will end with this, from [url=http://info.bahai.org/article-1-3-2-17.html]here[/url]. Take Care!! The Independent Investigation of Truth Baha'u'llah emphasizes the fundamental obligation of human beings to acquire knowledge with their "own eyes and not through the eyes of others." One of the main sources of conflict in the world today is the fact that many people blindly and uncritically follow various traditions, movements, and opinions. God has given each human being a mind and the capacity to differentiate truth from falsehood. If individuals fail to use their reasoning capacities and choose instead to accept without question certain opinions and ideas, either out of admiration for or fear of those who hold them, then they are neglecting their basic moral responsibility as human beings. Moreover, when people act in this way, they often become attached to some particular opinion or tradition and thus intolerant of those who do not share it. Such attachments can, in turn, lead to conflict. History has witnessed conflict and even bloodshed over slight alterations in religious practice, or a minor change in the interpretation of doctrine. Personal search for truth enables the individual to know why he or she adheres to a given ideology or doctrine. Bahá'ís believe that, as there is only one reality, all people will gradually discover its different facets and will ultimately come to common understanding and unity, provided they sincerely seek after truth. In this connection, 'Abdu'l-Bahá said: Being one, truth cannot be divided, and the differences that appear to exist among the many nations only result from their attachment to prejudice. If only men would search out truth, they would find themselves united. 1 And further: The fact that we imagine ourselves to be right and everybody else wrong is the greatest of all obstacles in the path towards unity, and unity is necessary if we would reach truth, for truth is one. 2
  12. While I think my GX922's are great, I would go with TRX V11. They are a new model updated this spring, while the GX922's are several years old, newer must be better and all that. Also with the debut of several All-new and ALL ORIGINAL designs using their very own R&D; I don't know it calling GigaGolf a clone club maker is an accurate statement anymore...
  13. It's been my experience more often than not. You can tell pretty quick between the smart guys who care and the fakers who just want to tell you you're going to hell. When things stop being polite I generally stop participating. It's not worth it, and I probably don't have anything I'd want to learn from them anyway. Bunkerputt- I posed your question about Islam and Christianity to a few of the Baha'is I know. They are really smart guys and know their stuff a lot better than I do. Here are their responses: Basically Baha'i Faith teaches that, in the Quran, Bible or other Scriptures, there are verses that have a spiritual meaning. They express a spiritual reality, and not a physical reality. The Quran verse saying, that "They did not crucify Him nor Killed Him" is talking about the spirit of Jesus not His physical body. This is explained by Shoghi, the Guardian of the Baha'i Faith, in one of his letters. There are other verses in Quran, which says Jesus died. Regarding Jesus being God, Baha'u'llah explained that in the Book of Iqan, that if all Messengers of God say they are God they said the truth, for all the attributes of God are fully Manifested in the Manifestations of God and due to their nearness feelings they expressed their feelings by saying they are God Himself. Quran also has verses showing that Muhammad represented Godhead, and there are Islamic traditions saying "I am He, and He is I...." and Baha'is believe in the principle of the Manifestation of God.. that God is perfectly manifested in these Messengers of God for the people of Their day..and that They all sacrificed Their lives as Jesus, Muhammad, the Bab, Baha'u'llah did for the good of humanity.. Further we Baha'is would say that there was a misinterpretation of the Qur'anic verses and that Jesus was indeed martyred on the cross and His Spirit returned to God. The verse to which the author refers is 4:156 and reads as follows: "And for their saying, 'Verily we have slain the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary, an Apostle of God'. Yet they slew him not, and they crucified him not, but they had only his likeness... No sure knowledge had they about him, but followed only an opinion, and they did not really slay him, but God took him up to Himself." 'Abdu'l-Baha's interpretation of the verse is provided in a Tablet published in Star of the West, vol. 2, no. 7, p. 13, in which He has written: "In regard to the verse, which is revealed in the Koran, that His Highness, Christ, was not killed and was not crucified, by this is meant the Reality of Christ. Although they crucified this elemental body, yet the merciful reality and the heavenly existence remain eternal and undying, and it was protected from the oppression and persecution of the enemies, for Christ is eternal and Everlasting. How can He die? This death and crucifixion was imposed on the physical body of Christ, and not upon the Spirit of Christ" See also Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, pp. 85-6. Juan Ricardo Cole discusses Muslim objection to Gospel accounts of the crucifixion of Christ in "the Christian-Muslim Encounter", World Order, Winter 1977-8, pp. 18 and 22.
