  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

E Bay or Stub Hub most likely only option Greg [/quote] I wouldn't doubt that they'll make a small amount available a week or two before the event. Always looking to squeeze a little extra revenue out of it. [/quote] Yeah, just like The Masters does each year! [/quote] Sponsors tickets that they can't sell for their severe markup for will be returned.

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

It is one of the most difficult if not the most difficult course I have ever played. [/quote] Most public courses also don't have a US Open setup as normal conditions as Bethpage Black does. They want to keep the rough down so the rounds can be played in 4-4.25 hours. At Bethpage Black, the fairways are always narrowed and the rough is lush t

[/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? [/quote] Could be worse...Medinah paves over a hole of Course 1 every time

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
  16. [quote name='Hawkeye' timestamp='1344654110' post='5448282'] My rep brought these over and I was able to hit D3, 15*F and 19*H all with new Diamana + whiteboard shafts. Very, very impressed. The driver has a sharper top line and is not as rounded. The sound is slightly different and feel is slightly more solid. Mishits were more forgiving. I love my 910 D3, but hit the new 913 D3 even better. According to my rep, Titleist has made the D2 and D3 launch identically. The shapes remain the same as they have been, but the D2 and D3 will now launch identically. I think he 913H is narrower a

He needs to earn $32,000 this week in order to gain a Special Temporary Membership, which would allow him to play through the rest of the TOUR season (in events he is qualified for, of course) in his quest for a card. [/quote] He is a past winner of the PGA Championship. I thought that granted him a permanent spot at the PGA or is that just s
  18. I didn't know everybody here was Tiger's personal assistant, making up his schedule for him. The guy has a $55 million mortgage, let him get in those guaranteed $$$ appearance fees.
  19. [quote name='mg7n' timestamp='1344217145' post='5412822'] Jumps to #2 in the 25... already has his tour card locked up for next year. [/quote] I believe the number last year was ~$180K for top 25. Guthrie is looking to jump into that spot very soon as well.
  20. [quote name='dkbunk' timestamp='1343961779' post='5399774'] Good start this week by JD. Friday will be a telling round. Card may hinge on this week and PGA (next already?) [/quote] Friday was good! Saturday is his Achilles Heel....hope he does well!
  21. [quote name='jonc30' timestamp='1342475886' post='5287794'] I've never been to a golf tournament before, and I'm about to place an order for tickets off of stubhub and wanna make sure I'm getting the right thing before I drop that much money. Grounds tickets/pass will get me into the course where I can walk along the holes and watch right? All of the people you see on TV that line the fairways, sit in the stands around the greens, etc are doing so with a grounds ticket, right? [/quote] Yep

[quote name='23under' timestamp='1342344337' post='5278434'] [quote name='bobfoster' timestamp='1342322732' post='5277590'] His wild, partying lifestyle (combined with amazing talent) was really cool in his 20s and 30s, but when a guy (professional golfer or average guy on the street) acts like that in his 40s or 50s, it isn't cool ... it is just sort of sad and pathetic. [/quote] Agree there. Imagine seeing him arrive on the first tee @ the open wearing plain black trousers, a clean cut white shirt, shiny black FJ Icons and splitting the fairway? Then going on to shoot -5 each day?
