  1. RIP Renton Laidlaw. Like many others here I truly enjoyed his work. Just seemed to have a great demeanor.
  2. Whatever the specifics he made a bargain to achieve greatness. One part of the deal was his body.
  3. It has been suggested over the years, and I recall it was hotly debated at each time, that TW could have won more majors if he simply didn’t change his swing. If you recall, he changed his swing multiple times and just about everybody scratched their heads and wondered wtf he was doing. In retrospect it is likely he was addressing injuries, and trying to find a way to continue playing and performing at the highest level. It is still debatable as to whether or not each swing change achieved what he was looking for, but there is no question the swing changes took time, and possibly detracted from winning more majors. No doubt it was a Faustian bargain; he paid dearly with his body.
  4. Thumbs way up to the OP for the pics. Go Tiger.
  5. Yeah. I’ve got tendinitis that just won’t quit. From golf- no; got it skiing this past winter.
  6. Thanks. I tried to downsize using an app called image size. Will have to figure out a better way.
  7. Geesh. How many rounds would that shirt get you at Whistling Straits? Or Pebble Beach? …
  8. Yes. Both pics upload upside down. I have no idea why but I think the reason may be something in the software of my photo app, not WRX’s. This has happened to me elsewhere, but not consistently.
  9. Looks great, and would like to install one myself. As a side note my pics have been loading upside down as well. Just figured out it’s because of the iPhone being upside down when taking the pic, the volume buttons upper right. When I take a pic with the volume buttons on the bottom the photos load correctly. Bizarre.
  10. So, I took a picture of my iPad screen with the same pic posted before. But this time I turned the phone around so the volume buttons were on the bottom instead of the top. This worked. Thanks for your help. When I use my phone to take pics I’ll have to make sure to hold it that way. Not sure why it does that.
  11. In the photos app I have two pictures, the original and the edited, the edited picture is turned 180* (upside down). Both pics have been uploaded, and both uploaded upside down. I’ve read it has to do with the taking of the picture with the device orientation. Ghost in the machine problem. I’ll try to take a pic with my phone and change the orientation and see what happens.
  12. Trying… I made a copy and edited it to turn upside down. Here it goes…. — No, it’s still upside down. I cancelled it out before posting. Bizarre. I’m using an iPad.
  13. I’ll try now. Nope. Still upside down.
  14. I’ll try now. Nope. Still upside down.
  15. Please don’t change that.
  16. I’m gaining weight just reading this thread. I just don’t eat well enough. Looks delicious!
  17. While an imperfect scoring system, it’s worth noting that all competitors “win” just by making it this far. Second place wins 5 mil, fifth place 2.5 mil, 10th place 850k. Baby needs new shoes.
  18. RIP, Ben Wright, one of the great voices of golf.
  19. Hear, hear. Well stated. Absolutely awesome show.
  20. Just a great playoff. Wow. Both players were amazing, but I have to say the pen (putter) was mightier than the sword (driver) today. Congrats, Patrick!
  21. Yeah, I get this. Nevertheless, not too many people can handle tour level competition and all that comes with it like it’s a Sunday round with your buds. Lots of folks and their families depending on your individual success on a daily basis, all in front of the press. Just sayin’.

    Tough crowd, here. I always felt I could deal with some quirky humor during a lengthy round of televised golf. There was some interplay among serious discussion and banter. Now what do we have? No offense to Zinger, either. He’s doing fine.

    Congrats to Piot. Great match. Oakmont greens seemed awfully slick.
  24. Great stories here. It might be easier to pick your best shots for each club. If I had to pick one it is a 7 iron shot out of the woods. I’m talking real woods with knee deep brush, shrubs, and too many trees to count. I had no business shooting for a window up in the trees but I figured what the heck, chipping out is a bummer and might not even make it to the fairway. I think I may have actually shut my eyes through impact. Flushed it. I ran out to the fairway to find the ball two feet from the pin. Mostly luck, but I’ll never forget it.
  25. There are so many over the years. I’ve met and spoken to Lee Trevino, VJ, Bill Parcells all on separate occasions but the most memorable guy I’ve ever played with was an old school golfer who used to play “the loop” at our local muni each Sunday morning. This guy was in his 60s when I was probably about 22 or 23. The loop was a decades long money match, and was still a thing until recently. I’ve moved and haven’t been involved in years. The old school golfer played cross handed and could bend the ball like I’ve never seen before or since. The only person even close that comes to mind is Bubba. He hit everything low, though, and included his own rambling commentary for just about every shot, and your shots too, usually laughing or chuckling. One of the stories surrounding this guy was that he once broke par with a four iron. Local legend.
