  1. "Yes, we have some folks from our softball bat division who will be working with you on fine tuning the driver's auditory feedback. They're some of the best in the business. I'm sure you've heard of their work on garbage cans."
  2. I dunno. I concentrate pretty hard when my ball hooks into the water 100 yards up the left side of the course.
  3. I have no insider information, but for some reason I don't think we'll see it until April when a majority of the country is in or close to golf season.
  4. Costco website is now showing the v1 out of stock. I suspect that means the v2 will finally be available on the website for those of us whose local Costco doesn't stock them all the time.
  5. Or maybe we re-think criminalization of prostitution and the unintended consequences it creates like human trafficking, physical abuse of women by pimps and johns, and lack of testing and care for venereal disease.

  10. Anyone know if he's building a following in Japan? With the Japanese sports press's desperation for a Japanese golfer to win a major (poor Hideki - it's gotta suck having the weight of a country on your shoulders), maybe Colin will be able to cash in?
  11. Would love to resurrect this thread. Anyone tried Ron Parce out of Colombia? Better than Diplomatico?
  12. > @halliedog said: > Anything new with CPG? I listened to the Amanda Balionis Podcast, and it was rather bland, other than her using Aphibarnrat as her "safe word". First and foremost, CPG is a sketch comic which is why his video posts are also so much better than his podcasts. The number of golf people willing/able to be funny (and in a mildly crass/blue way like CPG) is exceedingly small. Also, compare CPG's interview with No Laying Up (NLU) to any of his podcasts, and it's no contest - he's just as fantastic off the cuff as he is with a planned sketch. Not so much with any of

  14. Distance 10 times out of 10. Unless you're Rory, being closer to the whole makes everything else easier.
  15. > @Soloman1 said: > The cost of a private jet split among several people isn’t much more than flying first class, but without the hassle of checking bags, losing bags, having clubs broken, surly flight attendants, the unspeakable horror of TSA and the hours it takes to be in the air 90 minutes or so. I'd love to know how many pros fly private on a consistent basis.
  16. I know this is more of an off-season question, but I'm a curious dude. So many pros live in and around Jupiter, Florida, despite not exactly being close to a big city (Miami is about 80 miles away). The closest "major" airport to there is West Palm Beach which certainly doesn't have a lot of direct flights (unlike Orlando or even Miami) and I don't think United flies to more than Chicago out of there (as a sponsor, I understand they provided certain perks for TOUR members). For those who can't afford to consistently fly private (so I'm not talking about Tiger, DJ, JT, Rickie, Rory, etc.), i
  17. Mamala Bay Par 3 6th Hole on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. I've played this whole at least 20 times and never parred it (I've parred every other whole at least one time). I know, I know, you're thinking this looks like a simple par 3 with an elevated green and slightly elevated green. The tree to the front-left of the green is usually much more grown out than is shown here (I'm wondering if they had to prune it back due to a storm), but it does an amazing job protecting the green and the flag is almost always tucked back behind the tree or no more than the middle of the green.

  19. Off the top of my head and in no particular order, Finau, Dufner, Homa (recent addition), Beef, Pepperell, Oosthuizen.
  20. I don't think Brooks will win, solely based on the rarity of back-to-back major wins (and even though he's done it once, that doesn't necessarily make it easier to do again), but at the same time, it feels stupid to me to pick anyone else to win.

Reprehensible? Yes. Worthy of being punched in the mouth by Bill Whaley? Have at it. Smashed in the face with a police baton? Absolutely not. What kind of police state do you fantasize about living in?
