  1. Crikey...that had to be all the way back in 2008. Funny how it's been 4-5 years already.
  2. Hate to say it, but a reason why people could think New Yorkers are rude or cocky is their "accent". I know it's sad, but you can get stereotyped by the way you pronounce words... I used to get grilled incessantly by my customers in New York about my Chicaaaahhhhgo accent. I looked at them confused, thinking I spoke perfect English while they spoke aggressively and tersely. As with all accents, it takes some time to get used to and process...the same thing with my "accent". You get some people that see New Yorkers once a year and they take a few moments from a golf tournament where some

Sophisitcation increases as you move west. [/quote] How many murders does Chicago have each day? About 5x that New York City has. Not that I am a NY fan. The Bethpage fans seem to have calmed own today. Good news. [/quote] I think the murderers in both cities have other things to tend to than golf tournaments. That being said, you're going to hear trash talking at Medinah. It's

[/quote] I'm still not sure what you're saying. You've made some statements that suggest that the course gets torn up, but... It's still not clear what your point is (I'm assuming that you had one, of course). Are you saying that BPB shouldn't host any PGA events anymore? Or that no one should? Or what?

There are some really low scores out there already. Even the rough doesn't look that hard to get out of. Fairways/Greens are wet. Maybe it needs to dry out over the next few days. [/quote] Ya they played some of the harder holes from tees further up. They should put everything at the tips. Would make it a bit harder. [/quote] Rough is also not at US Open lengths. Scores should be lower all weekend.
  13. He's 131 on the money list and 137 on the FedEx Cup points list. Is he eligible for the FedEx Cup since he doesn't have his card?
  14. [quote name='TitleistBaller' timestamp='1344733902' post='5452568'] That's right. No one is bigger than the brand. They let everyone go...Ernie, Phil, Tiger, Sergio...etc. [/quote] Exactly, they won't pay "clown" numbers!

That being said each year Titleist falls more and more behind their competiton. We will see if Rory going to Nike or Taylor Made impacts sales on the new products. [/quote] I dont see Rors leaving Titleist anytime soon [/quote] His contract is up with Oakley and Titleist. My understanding is that both Nike and Taylor Made are offering him a goo
