  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 ...
  9. doesn't sound like he had a choice, but regardless, the question "do you want to amputate your leg?" is not something i can contemplate ... hope he can continue to make a difference as a coach and as an inspiration ...
  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 ...
  14. the usga had to work lacc for a number of years to get them to agree to host ... doubt they will want to be an anchor for the usga ... their course will be restricted play for half a year, at best ... i would think oak hill would be a prime target for the usga ... midwestern site with history ... big, brawny course ... agree with phil ... would love to see the pga at chambers ...
  15. like the red with brown ... you don't see that very often, if at all ...
  16. be willing to bet that's close to the avg for a golf team member at any school ...
  17. i fail to see how anyone doesn't see this ... like, you have to really try to think he's not genuinely interested in the college "experience" while trying to play golf at a somewhat serious level, and that he's going to fit in and probably add a little something to their experience ... but it's a cynic's world for a reason, myself included ...
  18. they just trying to buy that 5th major status ... ain't gone happen ...
  19. nothing we discuss on this forum "really matters" ... yet, here we are ... discussing and opining things that don't "really matter", like someone's opinion that this will immediately be a top 10 course world wide ... questioning someone saying it will immediately be a top ten course world wide is not an indictment of the course ... i couldn't care less how fun the course is, or how bold the idea is ... i have my doubts it will be a top 10 course, legit or otherwise ... didn't mean to rankle anyone ...
  20. that's a pretty good line up ...
  21. At 23, Im could indeed have another chance at a medal in three year’s time. Kim, 26, would seem to be working with a tighter time window. Both players skipped the Open Championship to focus entirely on the Olympics but sought to downplay the military storyline in the run-up to this week’s event. "I know it's true that if we earn a medal the Korean government will exempt us from serving (in the) military,” Kim said Tuesday, “but I don't really, like, focus or think about the service in the military. My only goal is to win the championship and get [a] medal and be honored.” Im concurred: “I only focus and think about the winning games, not the military problem. So, yeah, that's it.”
