  1. Well...having watched the players this morning...the RL uniforms look better, and pricier, than the LP ones. That "silk, virgin wool" isn't doing Lowry or Rahm any favors.
  2. 1991 Ryder Cup or 1996 Masters...what can I say...I love watching meltdowns on the golf course!
  3. Never heard this "dirty donkey" term before...based on your profile, perhaps it's a term from north of the border... I hope you weren't referring to this, NSFW, meaning: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=dirty donkey
  4. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/embarrassing-sergio-garcias-wife-warns-143501119.html Sergio is sort of a natural target, especially considering some of his past behavior. Somehow, I don't think this is going to end well!
  5. Pros don't wear the Puma shirts, only the Ralph Lauren ones. https://www.ralphlauren.com/brands-polo-ralph-lauren-men-ryder-cup-team-collection-cg?webcat=men|feature|The Ryder Cup Collection&orignalCatID=brands-polo-ralph-lauren-men-ryder-cup-rd&altrurlID=brands-polo-ralph-lauren-men-ryder-cup-rd I think you could buy the entire collection, spend a weekend at The American Club and spend less than the cost of the European's overcoat.
  6. Here is the official site: https://us.loropiana.com/en/c/man/ryder-cup Looks like the entire weeks setup will run you over 50K... Personally, I can't find a decent t-shirt for under $700, so $615 seems pretty reasonable!
  7. $895 ain't even that insane anymore...check out this t-shirt from Dior... https://www.dior.com/en_us/products/couture-143J649A0677_C340-oversized-dior-and-peter-doig-t-shirt-mauve-cotton-jersey Or they could have gone with Hermes instead and doubled the cost! https://www.hermes.com/us/en/product/perspective-geometrique-polo-H157080HA2PLA/
  8. Ralph Lauren's Ryder Cup gear has always been on the pricey side, but not ridiculous...especially since there were frequently on sale post event on the RL website. I didn't realize that Loro Piana, an incredibly high end fashion from Italy that specializes in Cashmere, is dressing the Europeans. $895.00 for a short sleeve polo is sure to bring the game of golf to the masses. Fortunately, they come in XXXXL... https://us.loropiana.com/en/p/fw21/man/28matches-polo-shirt-FAL4627?colorCode=F1KW
  9. BK is now only 11 strokes back...not sure what you're watching!
  10. I don't think any golf fan thinks of these as playoffs...just a huge money grab for, generally speaking, athletes that already have plenty of cash. However, it is entertaining to watch players play clutch shots, or fall apart, with that much dinero on the line. Decades from now, I don't think anyone will mention the Fedex cup when discussing todays greats. Meanwhile, I still use UPS/USPS for all my shipping needs...so their marketing dollars are not working on me!
  11. Watching another pro blow a nice sized lead makes me appreciate being able to witness TW from 1996-2009 all the more... It was truly remarkable.
  12. Winning, or being in contention seemingly every week, for an entire decade while having dozens of side chicks in every port. And keeping the public and his wife in the total dark. That can't be easy!
  13. two week vacation. try 6-8 weeks, minimum.
  14. Good for Rory. I understand he’s not particularly liked on tour…no idea why…but I became a fan when he left Ben Crane on the green after suffering through his slow play for 17 holes.
  15. I dislike wearing hats...but if a sponsor paid me, I would quickly change my tune. Rory can't be the only pro who dislikes wearing them...aside from Robert Rock! I've never been a huge fan of the baseball cap being adopted by every sport, and in everyday wear...but clearly I'm in a tiny minority here. But I draw the line at the backwards baseball cap...which should ONLY be worn by catchers.
  16. It's not the untucked that bothers me...maybe it's the color combo or the cut, but it just doesn't look good. Better than Cam Smith...looks like a janitor, and dresses like one too! What was he thinking?
  17. I'm not a big fan of dress codes (I'll wear trainers and tees to golf), but the untucked shirt by the Italian looks terrible...I thought Italians were supposed to by stylish!
  18. Watching the 3M tournament just now… Vegas makes a nice putt for eagle that barely misses. Doesn’t touch the hole, and leaves himself with a tap in. Nobilo says “He couldn’t have hit a better putt”. I’ve drained some memorable putts in my life, and recall a couple extremely tough two putts. But a moderately downhill twenty footer with 18 inches of break that doesn’t touch the hole? Guess that’s why my remote has a mute button!
  19. Got my Women's tix...which I had won last year and then got rejected. Haven't heard about the Men's yet.
  20. Entertaining tournament, despite having to rip up my 36-1 Louis ticket...maybe next time I'll take shorter odds and take him for a top 5 finish! Morikawa is the best iron player I can recall...didn't seem to miss one all weekend. Maybe Sergio was as good? Links courses are set up for bad weather...if they toughened them up, they'd be unplayable in your typical wretched English weather.

    Louie O

    Interesting song for a South African...
  22. I was just watching, and saw him hug his caddie...and thought, wow his caddie must be a jockey in his spare time. Then I saw the the others in his group. Wow...don't think anyone asks to play through his group!
  23. https://www.costco.com/kirkland-signature-ks1-putter---right-handed-.product.100645850.html From people flipping them on Ebay, to buying at 30% off...how the world turns. Enjoy!
  24. Agree with above...you can have cheap, close and quality but only two of the three. I've basically stopped playing golf the past 18 months...before the pandemic, it was really pretty open on the muni front during the week...could get around in under 4 hours fairly often. Now it's a parking lot...I'll pass.
  25. I'm not a Rahm fan, but the apparel switch from Nike to TM was one of the best "fashion" moves in years...with his physique, the body hugging Nike looked awful (and uncomfortable too!)...TM looked really nice on high sturdy build...nice colors and patterns, as opposed to all the tie dye inspired shirts other manufacturers are producing. As for Louis...Rahm has shown repeatedly the ability to make big shots during the high pressure moments. Louis just sort of fades away or is stuck in neutral...gotta be mental, right?
