  1. You do what I did, you go left handed.
  2. The course last week was an incredibly tough walk and I’m a little surprised they would take a senior event there. He may be a tough old bird but Fluff was fifty plus yards behind Furyk reaching the green on many occasions. As a player, at what point does concern about your caddie kick in and start to be a distraction? Furyk’s a good guy, at any point did he look back and see Fluff trudging up one of those hills and worry a little? You can respect a guy’s professionalism and still be concerned.
  3. It always just amuses me that the British were fine with The British Open for years and then it was suddenly a sacrilege. Don’t really care that much, either way, it’s their tournament, call it what you’d like, but they’re trying to extend this “history” to the British Women’s Open which didn’t even start until 1976, a full 30 years after the US version. Don’t get your knickers in a twist about an event you didn’t care enough to even start.
  4. The gofundme doesn’t sound like it’s got anything to do with medical costs. It was only a $10,000 goal to help out with expenses while staying in a strange city to be with the baby. Three plus weeks in a hotel adds up and neither will be on tour. As to the medical, your plan usually has a deductible (which varies dependent on what plan you buy) and then the vast majority of costs are covered as long as the hospital is within your insurance network or it was an emergency admission, which is probably the case here.
  5. Interesting take on this. Not one I would have immediately jumped to, but interesting nonetheless.
  6. They’re ridiculously short and not helped by the shirt buttoned all the way to the top.
  7. My husband got my ball, scorecard and picture in a shadow box thing for me for my first one. I didn’t do anything special for my second through sixth.
  8. I don’t feel like it was a worthwhile upgrade. It’s generally a club more or less if it’s a significant slope, but I pretty much knew that already. Once you’ve played awhile, you just have a feel for that. I bought it because I felt like I’d be missing out if I didn’t have it but I wouldn’t bother with it again.
  9. To me the easiest way to handle it without a potentially uncomfortable conversation is to simply not be where they are. Hang 40 yards behind or be so far off to the side that he can just ignore them. If he’s up for it, he can always just tell the other guys that he’s happy to do par 3’s but he finds it to be a distraction and he needs to focus on his game. The idea that he ought to be gracious about being distracted because it’s junior golf makes zero sense to me. No, it’s not the U.S. Open, but it’s a competition and your son deserves the opportunity to play his best.
  10. What is wrong with Finau? Besides his general ineptitude, he topped a shot into the water on 17 that was just inexplicable.
  11. I actually took the gravity grip off my ER2. I’m someone who puts both thumbs down the front of the grip and the gravity grip just isn’t wide enough to do that comfortably. I wish it came in a slightly wider version because I really liked it otherwise.
  12. Don’t understand the criticism of banana pants when Morikawa’s pants look like he’s doing colonoscopy prep.
  13. I wonder what the record is for least total screen time by an eventual winner.
  14. I don’t even care what it costs, I’m just sick of chasing coverage.
  15. I’ve got a private cart. I live in fear of having to explain something like this to either my husband or my insurance company.
  16. Interesting to compare this mature, well-considered response to a difficult situation with the childish s*** show going on with the other two.
  17. I’ll be glad to see them gone, regardless of whether they speed up play or slow it down. Green reading is one of the skills a course should test. Being better at it than others should be an advantage.
  18. I compared it with the 60* wedges of all the other available manufacturers and none of them naturally rolled open like the Cleveland. I could feel the tension in my forearms while trying to square it up. I’m glad it works for you, but that’s not for me.
  19. We call it a swammy, a swing and a miss. Happens to everyone but we never let you forget it.
  20. Lots of availability at my local GG. I was very interested in them until I picked one up. Club wants to roll wide open at address. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The face of the 60 looks like it’s 70*. I’m used to manipulating a face open, not having to work to square it up.
  21. He is. Wasn’t sure at first until I saw the grip. Faldo and Finch tried talking about the different looking grip but clearly had no idea what it was. I’m always amazed at how little they know about equipment that isn’t from one of the major companies.
  22. It’s a TaylorMade, premature wear of the finish generally takes care of itself.
  23. Were they only going back to 15? Because that’s pretty common where I play. Most groups teeing off at 7:20 won’t run into a shotgun that starts on 15 at 9’ish. If they were going to send off singles or 2-somes, they should have informed you up front.
  24. It’s not bad enough that the kid cheated, now you want Dad to coach him on how to lie to minimize it? Yikes. People do make mistakes but owning up to them is how responsible adults are made.
  25. He played this week under the contact tracing rules, which included daily testing. He knew this was a possibility. His back up test didn’t come back positive until he was almost done with the third round, which is why they waited until he was finished. You can be vaccinated and still test positive. The same thing happened recently to Bill Maher. Whether you like this result or not, the Tour’s protocols are why we got to enjoy golf when other sports were sitting it out. Blaming the Tour for this result is ridiculous.
