  1. Not heard but seen... I was at the range 2 weeks ago and some guy was there with a girl whom was obviously not a golfer. He let her hit his Ping driver and she miss hit it so bad the head snapped off... Ouch!
  2. I don't know if Spieth and Scheff are buddies, so I'll take your word for it. Anyway, team dynamics do matter in a team sport. But when it comes to hard data, Scheff has done better than Reed in 2021. Scheff had more top 10's than Reed, fewer missed cuts, better birdie to bogey ratio and I believe finished ahead of Reed in almost every tournament they both played and Scheff finished better in every major this year except The Masters. As for Na and Kisner, I'm not sure Berger and English are more popular with their peers. So I'm not convinced it's a popularity contest, but rather some data and other factors that the Captains believe they used to make the decision. Those factors are likely something NO One here on WRX knows.
  3. I don’t think you can conclude it's a "popularity contest," it's a hypothesis that would be tough to prove. Anyway why do you say Kis and Na? I believe both guys are really well liked by their peers and yet they weren't picked. So the Captains must know something else we don't? Or perhaps they're using some different metric to select someone whom they believe is stronger?
  4. Well nice and speedy again after being slow for a couple days.
  5. It's certainly a great goal but the math says he's run out of runway... TW had 12 majors by 31 vs Brooks 4 and Tiger wasn't falling apart at 31 either.
  6. Scheffler also had more top 10's than Reed all season, fewer missed cuts, better birdie to bogey ratio and I believe finished ahead of Reed almost every tournament they both played and Scheff finished better in every major this year except The Masters. Again he couldn't fly. It takes months to fully recover. Seems like your making decisions based on emotions, not facts and data.
  7. Certainly a fair argument but of recent both picks have out performed Reed. I also think you must acknowledge his recent hospitalization w/bilateral pneumonia, where my his own admission he was told he might die, so it was very serious. A typical case of that will take months to regain full strength and feel back to completely normal. To ignore that I believe would be negligent. Stricks made the right decision to pass on him.
  8. @dcmidnightexamples were spot on. Based on what data should he have been picked? Get your head out of 5 years ago.
  9. Now I got this error trying to load WRX forum pages ...
  10. Anyone else having very slow page loads on WRX forums? Seems like it's been going on for the last 2 or 3 days. Otherwise page loads on other sites are working just fine on my computer. I'm seeing the slowness on my PC Chrome browser and Android phone using Brave. Interestingly when bypassing my Spectrum home network on my phone using Vz 4LTE, the forums load just fine. Again all other sites on my home network load fine and quickly.
  11. and most the arguing is because of what he did 5 years ago. Not so much so with the last RC or PC. Time to move on to better choices which Stricks did.
  12. Oh I agree, enthusiasm is important and anyone lacking it should have the decency to decline and let someone else in. But as I said numerous times, some here need to get out of 2016. How did he do in Paris? How about the last Presidents Cup? On top of that' he had a major illness which can take months to fully recover. The bench is deep of fully capable Captains picks. Every Captains pick this year has nearly universally better stats than Reed for 2021. Honestly I'd like to see the entire team be comprised of Captains picks. But yeah some need to get out of 2016.
  13. That's just another example and why I made the smart decision to cut the cord and all cable news/talk/sports opinion from my home 4 years ago. Sounds like your dog is pretty smart
  14. as they say, "A fool and his money are soon parted." Kind of reminds me of my nieces that buy expensive jeans that are all ripped up. LMAO if that isn't a poser move I don't know what is, and I've told them that! Back in the day our jeans got ripped up because we wore them hard and earned it. Now they're so lazy they have someone wear them out for them
  15. I don't get it either. His birdie to bogey ratio is one of the better on the USA team. His stats in 2021 are virtually universally better than the one guy some people think should be on the team based on success a "golf eternity" ago.
  16. 99.999999% of the time Curtis would have been right, just very wrong this time
  17. Well said! But customers keep throwing money at this crap because they've "got to have it" acting like it's air or water, essential for life or just an addiction like smoking. The only way to stop it is to cut the cord, not subscribe go cold turkey--- find other things to waste time and money on. I cut the cord 4 years ago and have never looked back. Oh and I'm about $5k ahead.
