  1. This looks like it could be fun!! Good on the European tour for trying something different. http://www.golfwa.or...ise-world-golf/
  2. Have a look for bintan (Indonesia) for a day trip. Ria bintan amazing course yet still much cheaper than Singapore courses. Marina bay though is good if you don't have an option for a full day.
  3. [quote name='rjp322' timestamp='1407336049' post='9870151']What is with all the atrocious threads today?! Jesus. Im going to say this once. IT IS A HORRIBLE THING FOR GOLF. The reasons are pretty obvious, Tiger made golf what it is today and by him not playing, it is declining to the state that it used to be. It is the Tiger effect. Golf without Tiger kills all the ratings, less new golfers join the sport, revenues from golf companies go down, Dicks pros get laid off because of this. This is all because of Tiger whether people want to believe it or not. TIGER IS GOOD FOR THE GAME. Now can we lock this up please![/quote] Golf courses in Australia are seeing a resurgence in the last year. Remember golf isn't just the USA. Asia is growing , the worlds best aren't from America any more. This could be good?
  4. You guys are kidding right? Here in Australia since we tightened our gun laws not once has there been a massacre. I understand how you say it's your right but if it's everyone's right to feel safe without carrying, wouldn't that be better? The harder it is to get one the safer the rest feel. Get over yourself the fact that you aren't the bad person cause it is too easy for that bad person to carry a firearm.
  5. My dad just had his today after 30 years. So proud of him! Congrats to you too!
  6. So I hate to start another thread on Tiger but if he is "gone" is it really a bad thing? All I can think off is less money means the other top players have to play more. Isn't that a win?

I'm assuming he takes over the top spot in the rankings with a win this week... [/quote] Unfortunately not, with Tiger and Day pulling out not enough points on offer. [/quote] He wouldn't be #1 on Monday, but he would become #1 the week before the Masters (assuming Tiger doesn't play in Texas). So technically a win would get him to #1. [/quote] So one of tigers bay hill wins drops off then? Made the week a lot more exciting!

  9. One thing tiger could take advice on from Greg is how to hit a driver!
  10. Was going to start a topic on this interview but then thought we don't need another tiger thread! The interview that fox sports done was supposed to be about Steve Williams and HIS career but golf being not so big in oz they run the tiger stuff knowing that should draw viewers. And for the guys debating his pay, some of nz's rugby players earn more than 1.5 mil a year and yet he is still the highest paid person earning from sport there. I don't want to say sportsperson specifically! If he can earn that much, he must make a difference otherwise those players can get away with a lot cheaper.
  11. +1 for the same. Except being Aussie it's cricket not hockey.
  12. Hate to say it but any of the Harry potter movies. And I'm 31!!
  13. Just warming up for an Aussie back to back masters! So is Jason day!!
  14. [quote name='Forged4ever1' timestamp='1390761531' post='8536875'] There is one point that I haven't brought up and though I fancy myself as objective, accurate, bla, bla, bla, as Rookie can attest, sometimes my views are scewed by personal thoughts, beliefs and experiences. This is one such time. Ya see, when I walked off the football field for the last time, I was lost. Sure, we had the friendships made over the past 4 1/2 years(I took a red shirt), a few that I keep to this day. And yea, the memories were great. But for the first time since I could remember, there was no winter workouts to dread & b!tch about. There was no spring ball to endure or summer work outs to go through. No arriving a month early to school to survive 100°+ days in the sun, lol. It was over- Forever- I didn't accept that real well. And then yea, the physical part of being able to take out frustrations and emotions amd do things on a field that I could never do on campus or in the "real" world. So I guess that I looked to rugby to replace and fill that void. It didn't- Nor was of fair of me to think that it could. However, I was young, dumber than I am now, lol, and instead of lookin inside, I looked outside. It's a great game, played by some of the finest athletes that I've been on ANY field with, and the camaraderie is second to none, and I would say team wise, these guys were much closer team wise than a lot of the football teams that I played on- And probably best of all, the coach tolerated me running around like an idiot screwin up plays to land the hit, lol, though I did improve a little as the season went on, lol. It's a great, great game! Have a good week- Fairways & Greens My Friends [/quote] I was the same mate, had to give rugby away at an early age in my prime due to 2 knee reconstructions. Doctor said my body could continue but in the end the mind was scared due to not wanting to get hurt again. Really missed the friendships and getting to take "frustrations" out on others, but in the end that's life and now we have golf, new friendships and a lot of new "frustrations"!
  15. [quote name='Jim Clark' timestamp='1390750085' post='8535891'] They're both tough. But American football has much larger players who can do much more damage. They need the pads and helmets. I think Rugby players are crazy. [/quote] Once again the reason they are much larger is because they don't need the fitness that rugby players do. In the end it's comparing apples to oranges, both have its merits.
