  1. Thanks everyone for the discussion, some really good points made and I've learned a bunch about the history of some of these tournaments. I'm still convinced it would be a great thing for golf to spread a single MAJOR around the world. And stop pretending like "THE OPEN" is some magical international tournament - it's played on the same 5 identical courses near some cold-ass rainy beach and tall grass every single year. At least it's different than the other 3. I understand there's already some big tournaments out there. Some of the WGCs are amazing - the one in Mexico just last week was a
  2. In golf, as we know, the majors mean everything. We live in an age where talented golfers come from all over the world. Yet 3 of 4 of the most prestigious events of the year are held in the USA. I'm American, so I particularly enjoy watching the US Open, Masters, and PGA Championship (heck even the Players Champ. sometimes). And I always look forward to the British Open as it's typically such a massive difference in course design from our parkland courses. But that's all we as golf fans get, year after year. The Euro Tour (and other pro tours) of course play all over, but no, they have
  3. Dude honestly how often do you practice? Not trolling, but you seem extremely analytical about things like belt buckle angles and whatnot but you look like you're pretty much just getting started in your golf game. Keep hitting balls over and over and over while experimenting and you'll get the feel down, at least the general gist of the thing - if that doesn't work or if I'm wrong and you've been at this for years, then it might just be time to throw in the towel. It ain't rocket science after all. Get some athleticism in those shots, make that club do some work homeboy.
  4. So I've been reading this thread and didn't want to say anything but there's been so much speculation I thought I'd just clear the air. I've known the D-man for many many years, in fact I grew up with his wife who we call J-Wow on a farm in Nebraska, I was her adopted brother. She handled the swine, I handled the beef. Anyway, a long while back long before any of us met him Zach got involved with a shady group of people who lived on an LSD commune in the woods of a town called Beaconsfield in Iowa, it was I guess one of those cult groups that did all sorts of weird stuff in cornfields. He'
  5. This post has nothing to do with slow play but just because you guys are talking about this Cantlay fellow I thought I'd share an experience with ya. It's not a feel good story, quite the opposite actually. So I moved to long beach CA for a high class new job years ago (I've since gotten the hell out of cali) and found a great house to rent on pacific ave in bixby knolls. Cool neighborhood if a bit "old money" as they say. You're basically living in mahogany mansions a mile from compton where they, well, let's just say they don't. California is weird like that I learned. Anyway, the peop
  6. I actually just ran into Hunter completely randomly a couple weeks ago. I was on a road trip and stopped in Ding Dong Texas (yes it's a real place) and they had a carnival set up in town for the annual greased hog championship. That's when you have to catch a pig covered in crude oil from the local fields and the fastest person wins. So we get there and it's the semifinals, my wife grabs some fried okra and deep fried ice cream with a few indian breads and a few more cotton candies and says I think I just saw that golfer you used to watch on TV. I'm like which one? She said the guy that lo
  7. It's like you guys are trying to figure out where the blame lies and who was being an insecure sheltered little baby. I guess I've got old news for you - they're ALL insecure little babies. Well, maybe not all but damn sure the most of them. We're talking country club southern good old boys that probably didn't wipe their own butts until they were of the ripe old age of 11. Not trying to sound like that jealous guy (of course I am, these dudes live the life), but just trying to be real when you take a step back and think. Trying to apply rational everyday thought to the weird social clima
  8. Is the OP like 80 years old? Did you just say Bible Study dude? Jesus Christ Almighty and baby Mary in the basket I hope you delete your post for the betterment of mankind.
  9. Oh this is fun, here let me try to dissect the enigma that is P REED Does Reed come off as a douchebag? Absolutely. Does it help he has one of the most punchable faces on tour? Not a bit. Did he seriously rock a choker as a dude on national television? Like multiple times, and I cringed for him even 3000 miles away. Does his wife seem like a psycho b****? Yeah for the most part. She's got the look down and those crazy eyes too. WTF was she wearing on Sunday anyway? Oh well, she's rich as a mofo. But you can bet your a** she's nuts. Are his parents probably just as crappy as he is? Mos
  10. Skylinks! Haha reminds me of the good old days. If you run into LBC Steve, Brooklyn Tommy or Boston Brian tell them E said hello
  11. Very interesting? You heard it here first folks - parents with expensive country club memberships are forcing their kids to play golf at a young age for the 1 in 30 million chance the kid goes pro and can buy them another boat. Tune in for more at 11.
  12. Too family oriented to make the sacrifices to be great? wtf? I know Chicago is lonely cold depressing and ugly, but dude, don't inflict your embarrassing existence on someone who has achieved much higher in a day than you will in a lifetime.
  13. After the super "important" meeting is over, Jack is the good guy and lets everyone hang out in his crib for about 30 more minutes before he has to hit the sack. It's almost 7:30. People kind of scatter into the far reaches, forming their little cliques. Tiger and Phil shootin the s*** over in the corner. DJ raiding the fridge. Furyk choppin up some celery checkin out the sweet cutlery, why not. You, the new guy, feel left out. You don't know anyone, and there's no chance you'd just walk up to one of these heroes and start gabbin like a dork. You decide to stroll a bit, check out old J
  14. Great picture. Must have been very awkward. You've got the cool top dogs that need to assert dominance of the pack, and the young pups that try their best to fit in. Just try to imagine all of the terribly bad jokes made by Jack/Phil/Tiger/etc followed by obviously fake howling laughter from...well just about everyone else. It's very silent most of the time...no one is really talking or speaking up, because you're surrounded by the "bosses". Just act like you're having a great time. This shrimp cocktail is xxxxxx awesome bro. It's like being in a terrible executive corporate meeting. A
  15. Thank you for the help friends :) Just wanted to update - it turned out to be a small muscle tear right where my shoulder meets the bicep/tricep. Kind of a weird spot, but, good news - with some rest and stretching plus a basic strengthening program I am now 100% back to happy golf times. Just played a round a few days ago for the first time in months and not the slightest pain during or after. I even felt a good bit stronger what with all the stretching and weights. Phew! Doctors are awesome. I will always remember to *really* stretch before a round now, no cheating. Jimenez style.
