  1. I wear an Apple Watch 99% of the time. On my dresser, collecting dust are a Citizen EcoDrive (solar powered, been inside so long it no longer holds a charge), 2 G-shocks, a Movado my wife gave me, and a MVMT watch I bought after seeing an ad somewhere. I wear the MVMT watch when I wear my suit, the G-shocks when I go offshore, and my Apple watch the rest of the time.
  2. There is indeed. Because people are pathetic idiots. I cannot fathom for the life of me how anyone can think all these puffed up faces that dont move and bizarrely tight facial skin look good. It makes people look very much the opposite of human. They need to get a grip on reality and learn how to age gracefully, instead of trying to buy youth through hair dye and surgeries.
  3. Saturday’s I wake up, usually hung over, drive to the course and if there’s time I’ll hit a few balls before heading to the first tee. If no time, I head to the tee and stretch while I wait for the group ahead to clear before trying my best to throw my shoulders out of socket and wreck my back again.
  4. As someone who had the same procedure, twice, I too find it hard to believe he is hitting full shots. And if he is, he is headed down a path to a 6th surgery. even at that, if he is just chipping and putting this closely removed from surgery, he is going to be practicing a very handsy yippy chipping motion.
  5. I really hate autocorrect. It was supposed to say dural sac. I fixed it. It’s a membrane around the spinal cord that contains spinal fluid. They patched the tear, but it needed to fully heal. And yes, lying flat on your back for 24 hours post back surgery is quite painful. I went through probably 1/2 my bottle of pain killers and didn’t sleep more than a couple of minutes over that 24 hour period.
  6. I’d rather change the oil on 20 cars than paint one room.
  7. Both of mine were outpatient. In and out by lunch time both times. Second one they tore a hole in the dural sac and I had to lie on my back for 24 hours after I got home. Talk about uncomfortable.
  8. 1-2 per round is a lot for anyone. I doubt there’s a pro on tour (or ever has been for that matter) that chips in an average of 1-2 times per round
  9. Discectomy is removal of part of the disc that is compressing on the nerve. Microdiscectomy is the same basic procedure, done under magnification with tools instead of direct visualization. My incision was around 1.5”. laminectomy is where they shave and remove bone fragments. Mine was a combination of the two (microdiscecomy/laminectomy).
  10. I had the same procedure at L4-L5 in 2012, and again in 2014. Both doctors instructions: no swing a club in any way for 3 months. He will be lucky to be in tournament form for the masters.
  11. I hope none of them stick, and I hope most of the idiots that took up the game give it up when everything else opens up. We played this past weekend, and after everyone holed out on 18, I took my hat off and reached out for a fist bump (too many people too wary about shaking hands I guess), and everyone was just kind of grumbling about their miserable rounds and just walked off. Having played golf with these guys for years, this would have never happened if people still shook hands, and quite frankly, it pissed me off a bit. I've played some horrible rounds of golf in my life, and
  12. Which ever method gets the ball in the hole in the least amount of strokes. Chipping in is fun, and so is banging in a long putt, but if both of them are for bogey or worse, it's just salt in the wound.
  13. If you ever feel the need to get rid of those, let me know. I'll gladly take them off your hands.
  14. I completely glossed over the fact that he had a date. I just read it as he wanted 9 more and created a lie to play it. I'd definitely say she isn't that significant in your life, so why bother wasting either of your time?
