  1. Robo's post is shorter and he breaks it up much more than I do Have a Great Week Gents RP
  2. Fred..... You're a gem!! Oh, and what's up with the guys callin him "Freddy," lol He's sixty-two friggin years old for chrissakes, not 8-10, lol Anyhoo, I hope all's well on you're end and ya had a nice season Stay Well My Friend RP
  3. I can't stand the guy, lol He's an uber self-centered arrogant temperamental dick, lol My feelings have softened over the past few years, and though I've never Played with him, I would have declined the invitation if asked. I also know of quite a few Tour Boys, real good guys, that don't care for Fred. On another point, DJ is 2-3 times the Player that Fred ever fantasized about bein. DJ did not underachieve~ They call that youth & immaturity He grew up and wanted to be a Champion DJ has six World Golf Championships, with only Tiger winning more and he is the first Player to win each of the four World Championship Events along with 2 Majors, arguably THE two to win if one could only choose two, with 24 Tour Victories total. If DJ never wins another Tour Event, he's a slam dunk for the HoF, not some borderline underachiever who's a perennial WRX thread boy on "Is he or isn't he a HoFer?" And yah, I realize that Fred is IN the HoF. That's different from BEING a HoFer You know what I mean Fred??? He won a Green Jacket, an annual dinner invite for life along with 14 other Tour events and he was good with it As always, just my .03 worth I hope that ya had a nice Thanksgiving and a great upcoming Holiday Season Brotha Cheers RP
  4. Already have, had a blast so why f*ck with a good thing??? Cheers RP
  5. G&F gets it, which doesn't surprise me cuz as a Player he was/is in that less than 2% of the golfers out there, The competitive & Elite Plusses along with the Pros, that know what makes a Player & Champion~ It's not their Clubs~ It's not their Putters~ It's not their Swings~ It's not their physical game~ It is their MENTAL GAME!!! Along with Will(Drive), Effort & Determination, I might add Focus & especially Discipline. I've lost count of the guys that I've Played with/against who had Tour Boy Talent, one of whom, my former BB Pards, was one of only two Players that Sam ever personally, % staked for a one year run at the Tour, however, off of the course, he had the focus & discipline of a Vegas 'ho at a steamfitters' convention. Besides, Bernhard has one of the five strongest mental games of All-Time in my book, behind only Jack, Tiger, Benny Boy & The Haig. Regarding GV's question, we could spin it and throw Sam into the discussion for sh*ts 'n giggles and ask how many more Tourneys would Bernhard and Sam have won had they not been struck down by the Yips in the Prime of their careers, forced to try countless ridiculous putting stances, strokes and styles, not to mention myriad putters. Pete had Sam's putter collection from his mid-30's through his 60's, when he had a T-3 in the PGA CHAMPIONSHIP AS A SIXTY-TWO YEAR OLD MAN, and there were over 35 putters in the barrel. It averaged out to just over a new putter a year during that span, though I'm sure that he'd stay with one putter for a few seasons while other times tryin out 2-3 at a time and then dumpin em in the barrel. Think about that for a second.... Even those of you(the vast majority) that have noooooo friggin idea what a quality mental game even much less how to utilize it on the either the range or the course, can surely appreciate that a 62yo OLD MAN competing and placing T3 IN THE MOST COMPETITIVE MAJOR ON PLANET EARTH did not achieve that feat do you his clubs, putter or stroke??? Correct???? Ah, f*cl it, I'm gonna exit stage right again and ya won't have to read my novellas, lolol Keep buyin new drivers every year(haha, Maddie still Plays her Nike VR Pro Limited(Tour) driver, changing only the shaft/grip over the last decade), askin strangers who don't know sh*t about you and even less about the swing to look a your swing video or better yet, go grab a new putter Oh yah, just remembered this... Sean Knapp and I were sittin up on the porch overlooking #1 at our club(this pic was taken when I stood up in my chair), watchin three mid-cap(16~ to 21~) members tee off, two of whom were very excited over new drivers. All three sprayed their balls, the one new driver goin hard hook left into the tree line separating 1 & 5 fairway with the other two goin hard right, with the one having to yell "fore" a few times as his ball was right of that sand halfway down the pic on the right, which is in fact the green side bunker for #2. I'm sure the guys on 2 green loved dancin & duckin between putts So the question that I'd ask is how many more Tourneys would both Gents have won without the Yips and those batty *ss putting strokes and putters entering their lives??? Stay Well Bro, Great Post Have a Great Weekend Ladies & Gents RP
  6. Hey Brotha, I hope that ya had a nice season and all's well The last nine words of you last sentence in your above post is second only to a quote from a 3-Time Super Bowl MVP & HoF QB(I realize that he's not the originator of the quote) who chirped this quote about another then 3-Time Super Bowl MVP & future HoFer, IF he ever decides to retire.... "If You ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin" A myriad-USGA Champion and one of the two Classiest Principled and Most Honest AMs that I've ever met, Played with/against and gotten my *ss totally kicked by echoed the same sentiments in his experiences in the Big Dog Tour events. And yah, at least two of the names would STUN most of you. That said, my thoughts and feelings about Patrick(and Justine) have been posted previously. Those who do not share them and who think that he's the biggest piece of sh*t to carry a card this century most certainly have that right to their thoughts and opinions, and I have never nor would I ever try to change someone's mind as all that I do is post my experiences if I've had them along with my opinion(s). That said, I'll tell ya one thing Gents..... For money and if given the choice, I would ALWAYS take Patrick on my team versus not or even worse, on the opposing team Stay Healthy Brotha With that, I bid you Ladies & Gents adieu RP
  7. While I agree with your thoughts on this, there are some guys for whom their chronological numbered age is just that... A number Then there are others for whom that number represents a badge of honor, a link to an era, and ultimately, ala Tom Watson(Whom I think the world of and respect greatly), a lead ball around their neck. For Freddy, except physically, where he's a massive train wreck, his age is nothing more than an irrelevant number. As any of the regular members know, I've never been a big, or even little, fan of Freddy, however that said, he does not act his age, he still Plays off-season games with a lot of these guys, including Dustin, Harris & Tony Finau, who I believe to be three of the older members of the team, and his personality is such that, when he chooses to, he gets along with guys of ANY age. He also was a 3-Time victorious President Cup non-playing Captain, the last in 2013, so he knows what to do, when to do it and most importantly what not to do, what NOT to say and when to keep his thoughts in his head, which is not easy for any of these guys, especially the younger ones who every thought ends up on some social media venue. All this said, I would have to agree with ya that Freddy's ship has sailed. Jesus, I posted a positive post about Norman, I'm defending Freddy, WTF I liked myself better on meds Great post Stay Well RP
  8. Well, I don't know about anyone, cuz I believe that there were a few in the mix who would screw up a wet.... ah, forget it, you're right Have a great day Brotha RP
  9. Oh Dear God Only in golf, would this be considered "ruthless," Had this been said in any of the football locker rooms that I had the privilege of occupying for the better part of 17 seasons, we would have b**** slappedthe clown that said it THIS is what's wrong with the game today!! Its gotten so barbarous, brutal, ferocious &.... RUTHLESS!!! I'm not even gonna comment on the author of this article as he is employed by the Man Hey, it's Tuesday morning, I'm bored and it's just sinking in that I pissed away $2500 this past weekend and didn't even have fun doin it!! Now THAT is ruthless Not to worry, I've endured worse "STEP ON THEIR NECKS" "RUTHLESS" Thank the Good Lord above that one, Tiger is injured and unable to lead this pack of Barbarians, and secondly, that metal spikes are banned, or this woulda been a friggin Blood Bath!! Fairways Greens & Fair Skies 4ever My Friends️ RP
  10. I actually think that Zack, if he gets the nod, will do a nice job. Two Players that I would not have thought were Zack fans, and I'd have put money on them NOT being Zack fans, though please bear in mind that I lost $2500 on this Cup, indeed spoke highly of him. He'd be a solid choice, and screw Shedloski, he stole that "absof*****lutely" from me as I used that in a post on the board the first week that I joined here, when he was still in diapers Putz Cheers RP
  11. Did they invite Ben back in 2001 following the most exciting comeback/victory in my lifetime??? Did they invite Zinger back following his "Podinator" performance which snapped a Euro THREE Cup Victory streak, was THE largest US margin of victory since 1981 and was the first time since 1979 that the US had held the lead after every session of play??? Did they invite the Love Dog back following the US's first Victory in almost a decade on the heel's of Tom's debacle(2014) where Phil couldn't place a drive in the fairway to save his life however he single handedly destroyed a locker room(stated by a Player in that locker room)??? They wanted to make Ben the President of the PGA and Zinger the Prez of the USGA for Chrissakes Yet neither was in serious consideration for an Act II! Besides, most guys are friggin idiots on a good day, and following an emotional victory, they'd give away their wife & first born if the right offer crossed the tablle No, Strick will not return Stay Well My Friends RP
  12. Great post!! THIS is a US Team to be proud of and to build on, not only because they won in such dominating fashion, though make no mistake, this is a beating that the Euro Members on that team will NEVER forget, however these young US Players don't have the scars, mental pictures and memories from the recent US Ryder Cup defeats, ie., 2014/2018, where their locker rooms were made for TV reality sh*t shows and their Play lackluster. They came to Wisconsin with no positive mental pictures/images to draw on "under the gun," and it didn't matter as they made their own, and they've made enough to last em a life time, much less the next decade!! As TL stated, there is a great core of young guys who have now "been there done that" and regardless of who joins the 2023 team & beyond, I expect this younger nucleus to be on that Team or jockeying for a spot on the Team for the next decade. I never doubted their ability and talent. I just didn't expect them to respond mentally as they did, and I though that Brooks and Bryson would be a negative influence. I was sorely mistaken as they obviously helped with the young guys. That said, I'm sure that now that both Bryson & Brooks have hoisted and drank from the cup, that their opinions on the Ryder Cup have changed, or at least in Brooksie's case, he can now better understand why the Ryder Cup occupies the place that it does in Professional Golf, and why it beats the sh*t outa late morning naps I'm really happy for that Team, their support staff and their families!! Hopefully, this experience sheds a different light on the Cup for B&B cuz they are in a position to lead a nucleus of Players with the physical talent that the US Team hasn't had this century and going back to the at least the mid-90's. Sam stated that there were only three times in his Professional Tour career when he got chills down his spine, one being on the first tee at Augusta when his name was announced, the second was on Friday Morning on the first tee of the first session of the Cup on American soil when his name was announced, with the third being when he walked up the 18th FW on Sunday afternoon of his single's match in the Cup. I don't say this in a nasty or negative way as I cared for Sam a lot(I Loved Pete, told him so and he replied in kind, though my feelings for Sam didn't rise to that level). That said, Sam was THE most self centered egotistical narcissistic Tour Boy that I've EVER met or spent any time with and while he could be kind hearted and fun to be around, well, I'll leave it at that. My point being that if someone like Sam, who's ego put G&G's to shame and was me, Me, ME could get that emotional/excited about the Ryder Cup, there's hope yet for the guy that needs his naps above all else along with the Guy that wants to moonlight as a Long Baller!! I think that they're both gonna be kickin someone Euro *ss for years to come Spot on comment TL My Best RP
  13. My Post-Cup observation: Not having Tiger, Phil or any of the "old guard" on the team was THE single greatest stroke of genius, intentional or not, by Captain Steve Stricker. Yes, Phil was an Assistant Captain, however an Assistant Captain when the Captain is in the room is akin to having a vice-president in the room with the CEO present. Their presence is in body only as their influence, impact and importance is minimal with them basically there to be seen and only heard from if spoken to. Trust me, had Phil been a Captain's pick, it woulda been about Phil and I believe that as a Leader, well, he IS NOT a leader, and he can very quickly be poison to a locker room. Whether intentional or not, by including Phil though minimizing his role to basically that of a glorified cart b*tch was brilliant by Strick, whether intentional or not!! To not have Phil involved at all and sitting at home, well, when Phil feels slighted, has time on his hands and media available and only too glad to listen to his every often self serving comment, that creates distractions that this Team did not need. In speaking to another Tour Boy today who is fairly close to Steve(Steve and his wife stay at this Guy's place in Orlando when they go south over the winter) and while he agreed with me on this topic, he's not so sure that it was intentional as much as Steve wanting to include FIGJAM though not believing him worthy of a Captain's pick. Regardless of the thought process behind it, THIS was THE greatest Captain's selection of the 2021 cup. Other than this thought, every other one of my thoughts this cup weren't worth a sh*t Well, they were worth $2500 to other, far brighter Gents than I, lol Stay Well My Friends RP
  14. Didn't age well at all I commented in the other Cup thread and it hurts too much to have to post any more than this Stay Well Brotha RP
  15. Nah, regardless of how the matches went, I never chirp during the matches cuz it ain't over till it's over, and even though I'm not supposed to, I'm big into karma, and someone with far more power than I has a way of shutting up those that gloat, especially when there is time on the clock or holes and rounds to be Played, lolol That said, I hadda sick feeling Friday night and the thing is, when you jump out like the US did outa the gate, especially with a young untested team like the US, which was the more talented team, the confidence and self believe that they may not have had Friday when they teed off, and whatever mental edge that the Euros might have enjoyed on Friday was greatly negated on Saturday morning and based on the US showing that their Friday performance was no fluke, with a friggin 6 point lead heading into Sunday's singles, well, it was all over. That is last 7 singles matches were IRRFRIGGINRELEVANT was incredible to me I haven't seen a performance like that since the Cup was up the Road at Laurel in 1975, when the US buried Europe, 21-11. That was also my first time that I volunteered at a Tour event as a bunch of us Jr. members from the various clubs were "runners," lol. Be that as it may, these US kids' grit & mental games matched their talent, and I was betting on that not happening, lolol The Euros better dip deep into their Players' pool and come up with more than aging legends, cuz these young guys have the game and now that they KNOW that they can do it versus hoping that they can do it, well, put it this way.... I don't see myself putting $2500 on the Euros in 2023 Instead of seeing Lee, Ian and even Sergio as signs of the weakness of the talent pool, I saw what I wanted to see, even though Lee on his best day under the gun has the mental game of a mindless idiot, he has been a formidable Ryder Cupper, Playin on seven Cup winning teams(20-18-6). Oh well, lol I'll be in touch Brotha Very Nicely Played Fairways Greens & Fair Skies 4ever️ RP
