  1. no ... but tiger would never use a cart ... trick question?
  2. Fred Couples disagrees ... most other golfers disagree ... no link ... tiger stated early on physical shape on a sunday was one of his driving forces in running so much ... couples stated, essentially, next time you think walking 5-7 miles isn't a big deal, then walk to your grocery store and back ... something along those lines ... "utterly insignificant" ... that's an all-or-nothing position that is the bane of most american conversation ...
  3. don't belong to a private club, but honestly, if you could wing it, why join one with more than 100 members? ...
  4. so edgy ... so brave ...
  5. georgia will win out, and should be the favorite to beat alabama, if we win out ... they are very, very good ...
  6. i can assure you ... they are not "alleged" fans ... they are real ut fans ... no reason to think they are anything but ...
  7. i do ... what questions do you have? ... info is here: https://www.rtjgolf.com/programs/
  8. certainly see that point ... don't know the details of the court's argument for/against, which might be interesting to check out, actually ... but given that my cynicism towards society only grows with age, any positive aspect of golf only grows my affinity for the game, and his struggles - as a golfer aspiring to make it to the tour, as a fighter against a debilitating disease and as legal combatant - makes him and golf that much more admirable ... don't think there's been anymore ADA cases since his ...

  10. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/golf/2021/10/16/report-oregon-mens-golf-coach-casey-martin-has-leg-amputated/119054688/ In October 2019, Martin fractured his right tibia after misjudging a step onto his street, which was under construction, while retrieving the garbage can from the curb. Now, Golf Digest has reported that Martin underwent surgery Friday to have the leg amputated and is recovering at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. "I knew this day was coming," Martin told the Oregon Register Guard in March 2020, after the misstep that ultimately led to the procedure, "and it's here." Martin spent much of the past two years wearing a cast, using crutches to walk and undergoing injections, according to Golf Digest reporting, but the tibia never healed. Generally disagreed with the court ruling forcing the tour to accommodate him, but didn't feel good about it ... hope he recovers and can still enjoy the game ...
  11. played that three summers ago, and your description is spot on ...
  12. i've always thought the amount of running he did accelerated his physical demise ... maybe his swing didn't help, but the amount of running he did, combined with the amount of practice he'd put in, did not make his game better (at some point) ... there's diminishing returns to the amount of running he did, imo ...
  13. ah, i'm thinking of oakland hills, then ...
