  1. Are you guys STILL talking about milk? Friggin Canadians. (Tim Horton's, of course.)
  2. For me, it would have to be Roy McAvoy. His 62 to make the cut at the US Open was nothing short of amazing and the way he gave Jacobson and Simms a run for their money was beautiful to watch. Had he layed up on the 18th hole, he would have had a real shot to win it all or at least force a playoff with Jacobson.
  3. I didn't reference myself in the first person (it wasn't me who gave that example). I'm a 3rd party observer on this one. I think his example and your train of thought are NOT in as much conflict as you think. You're just flying at 60,000 feet while his example is at 10,000 feet. You're not on a collision course, at least not in my opinion. The quest for distance relative to the number on the bottom of the club (regardless of its true loft) is so common that it's become cliche, a trope, a meme. "That look on your face when your buddies pull out their PW's and you're
  4. It's really quite simple. It's a matter of what your "score relative to" is defined by. If you're playing all by yourself against only the scorecard/course, then par matters. Shooting a 72 "relative to" a Par 72 course is better than shooting a 71 "relative to" a Par 70 course. The lower number (71 vs. 72) is not better in that case. If you're playing against another golfer, then the only thing that matters is your score "relative to" their score. In that case, the lower score always wins. Score..."relative to"...what?
  5. Serious question; I'm not sharpshooting here. You state that, along with other things, marketing has led to loft changes. Then you state that the consumer (Bob) has no influence. That seems to be a bit contradictory, doesn't it? Who are they marketing to, if not Bob? If the consumer has no influence, there'd be no marketing in the first place. His example is rudimentary, but I'm having a hard time finding the flaw in it. Enlighten me. (Seriously, I'd like to hear your opinion. I may be missing your point.)
  6. That's actually a brilliantly simple solution. During the Payne's Valley match, they kept talking about how Thomas had a 4" tee so he could "tee it up as high as possible and really get it out there." The downside is on some courses, a 3/4" tee wouldn't stay stable enough in the soft dirt or get the ball up above the tall grass on the tee box. Not everyone's a country club guy. Some of us grew up eating baloney(sic) sandwiches like Bryson DeChambeau.

    I actually do understand that mentality. There's a lot of nostalgia in golf, more so than in many other sports. I honestly don't have a strong opinion either way on whether or not they need to reign things in equipment/course wise. I just know that until that decision has been made, one way or another, the professionals have a choice - get passed up or put in the work to stay competitive.

    "But...but...I don't want the game to leave me behind, but I also don't want to work as hard as I would need to in order to stay competitive. I just want things to stay the same forever."
  9. Once a person has earned the reputation of being a liar, cheater, thief, or a coward, it's pretty tough to shake. Reed earned his reputation as a cheater - not from a single incident, but from multiple incidents over time - and he's going to be playing defense for a long time, if not indefinitely, because of it. It doesn't help that he comes across as not very likable. Now, for the record, I'll give him the same benefit of the doubt that I have DeChambeau and some of the others. Maybe he's really a decent guy and just seems unlikable, but there's some kind of vibe the guy gives
  10. Post 2021 US Open GolfWrx: "I can't believe he didn't even thank his parents. Wins a major and forgets where he came from. Kids these days are so entitled."
  11. If the course was only going to be used for PGA Tour events, then yeah make it 8000+ yards, the fairways 5 yards wide, grow the rough to 12", put water or OB on every hole, and put trees everywhere. It's like everyone's forgetting that regular people play the bulk of the rounds on the majority of courses. I mean, I'm a decent golfer with plenty of length, but I'd like to play courses that don't kick the crap out of me every time I hit a golf ball 2 yards offline or require Driver/3-Iron on every Par-4.
  12. I'm just here for the "there's a lot you can do with 6 inches" jokes.
  13. He would have more if he lived here in the U.S. Just ask him.
