  1. 2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    I'm watching on the featured groups on masters.com. Thought they were showing the replay of him going into the water over and over. Nope. I think he put 5 in.
  2. 2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    Sergio pulled a Tin Cup on 15 carding a gentlemen's 13. Tournament over for him.
  3. Yardages Throughout the Bag

    A little over red Driver through 8. 9-LW is about spot on.
  4. I really like the Top Flite Gamer or Gamer Tour. Less than $20 a dozen and they perform pretty well. Through my own extensive "testing", I've bounced them off cart path, trees, rocks, etc. and if you can find them, they hold up. They seem to perform almost as well as the Taylormade's TPx I play in the summer and have about the same distance.
  5. Highest Price You've Paid For Green Fees

    Up until now my highest is $85 for a round at a country club near me. Plan on going much higher than that when I'm able to play Torrey Pines, Bethpage Black, Erin Hills, Pebble Beach, etc.
  6. Wearing a Wedding Ring while Playing

    I'm getting married in a few months and my fiance got me two silicone rings to wear for golf, other sporting activities, or any place we wouldn't want to take/lose the real ring. They were approximately $20 a piece and are very flexible and comfortable. There lots of places online you can find them. I had usually taped a few of my fingers to prevent slipping and blisters anyway, so I started wearing the silicone rings instead and they work like a charm.
  7. Simulator vs the real thing

    It's fun to get out and swing the clubs using the simulator, especially if there are no other options due to stupid mother nature. I went a few weeks ago with some friends and we all had a blast. Plenty of ribbing just like on the real course. The positives were less venturing through the woods and other areas looking for golf balls. As for the actual "golf" part of it, I'd take it with a grain of salt. It seems like half my shots had draw on them according to the simulator and I don't think I've ever hit a draw in my whole life on the course. That could've been the mat causing draws, my god awful winter swing, beer, or some combination of all three. But it felt good to have a club in my hands again and swing them no matter the results.
  8. I use the Swing By Swing app on my phone for distances and score keeping. Not sure if there are any better or worse apps out there, but it happened to be the first free one I found on the app store when I was looking. Seems to be pretty accurate on distance. They try to get you to pay for the premium version by holding back a few of the features, but it is good enough for what I use it for.
  9. I'm going to assume that grenade was used in an effort to stop a certain critter from terrorizing the golf course...
  10. 2017 U.S. Open Qualifiers

    What's Phil Mickelson doing playing the Mid-Am? Or was he just taking side bets in the parking lot? That sounds like a lot of fun. Probably a lot less pressure without the entire golf world watching and the brutal course setup. I read the Mid-Am winner gets an invitation to the Masters. Now all I really need to do is get my handicap down to a 3.4 now (because it's just that easy), and I'll be playing Augusta in no time.
  11. 2017 U.S. Open Qualifiers

    I would love to have a handicap low enough to play in a US Open Qualifier at some point in the future. If I ever get down that low I'd sign up in a heartbeat. I played golf in high school and remember competitive golf being a lot of fun. Don't forget, there is also the Amateur (2.4 handicap requirement) or the Mid-Amateur (3.4 handicap requirement and 25+ years old) championships that people could strive towards on their way down to a 1.4 or if they can't make it quite that low. Might be a little more doable for some people. https://champs.usga.org/
  12. How "Done" is Tiger Woods?

    At this point I'd be surprised if he doesn't retire so I picked #1. If he doesn't retire he'll need to recover and be able to play at least two rounds without getting hurt or having back issues and play well enough to make a cut. As a huge fan of his I'd like to see, at very least #2 happen, but it's looking less and less likely every day that goes by.
