  1. Guys like Bryson are not celebrated? We talk non-stop about the guy. Many people like him. They get tons of YouTube views and likes on his videos. They give him more coverage than just about anyone... Maybe the "governing bodies" are the only ones who don't love his long hitting. Was length not an advantage at the US Open at Torrey? Bubba just thinking negatively.
  2. yeah and it looked like a good 6 inches, or more like 1 foot between the ball and the path. but there have been some concrete within the grass that we can’t see
  3. well if the rule is along the lines of “Under the rule of golf 24-2b, a golfer is entitled to free relief from a cart path if the ball comes to rest upon the path or the golfer's swing or stance is inhibited by the path.”.... it was debatable whether the path actually interfered with his swing. It looked for sure like it did not interfere with his stance. the commentator said there may be some concrete extending from the path toward his ball certainly, I don’t think the post you’re replying to is that bad. With money on the line, I think Louie c
  4. Yup, seemed pretty lenient. The drop moved him away from having the tree in his line. if there was no tree, and he was concerned that a drop would give him a worse lie, something tells me he would hit it as it was....
  5. Todd Lewis on the Golf Channel flashing the West Side (gang) hand sign as a joke three times
  6. Yeah I don't think Wolff wants to stop playing professional golf... He just wants to enjoy playing golf again. The way he did when he was a kid (or as close as possible to that). He wants to try to achieve both - - - "happiness" and success as a pro golfer. I think every Tour pro probably felt like him at some point in their career. Maybe not "clinically" depressed, but certainly burnt out and no longer enjoying the game. But, they probably found balance in learning how to say No to certain opportunities and learned how to achieve contentment and joy within the professio
  7. they should establish a large, empty tent on each hole. Whenever someone’s cell phone makes noise, guards take them to the tent for time out. During time out, they have their cell phone taken away and they are forced to sit in silence for 30 minutes with no social media, golfwrx, etc. pure torture.
  8. Watching the replay on golf channel now. Spieth having a mini meltdown over a chip shot. guy is a head case.
  9. Just an offer? Had you even responded to it? You're definitely not obligated to accept any offer. But if you make a written agreement with someone or accept payment from someone, that's different. I agree with the others, if you tell the first person you got the offer for all 3, they would probably understand.
  10. Well people like to talk about who is the all time greatest or who are the all time best 10 golfers. so, it isn’t pointless to insert someone into a different era. It’s a way of highlighting the strengths/weaknesses of a certain era and the strengths/weaknesses of a particular player. The best players should excel in any era. E.g. I think Tiger Woods would be the best in any era. I think Jack Nicklaus would be highly successful in the modern era and any era. But someone like Gary Player might not be as good in the “power era”. So maybe t
  11. Hi. hope you have a great time. I'm a big fan of Chicago also. I'm not an expert but I live nearby and I've been a couple times. The course is located in sort of a 1 way in, 1 way out place (technically it's 2 ways). My recommendation would be to take an Uber/Lyft but have them stop about a half mile short of the course and just walk the rest of the way in, if it's crowded. The same thing when you leave. Walk a half mile from the course and jump in your Uber there. Unless you go at off hours, it can become extremely congested near the course.
  12. Also, invite the seller so they can give their side of the story if they want to. you should be able to @ their username
  13. If the OP’s story is accurate, I think he has a legitimate beef with the seller, too. it is not fair practice to accept a payment (if it was in the agreed upon amount) and then sell the item to someone else. Just because the payment says “pending”, potentially not because of the buyer’s fault. that’s a situation where you work with the buyer to get it resolved. You don’t just blow them off and make them wait 30 days to get their money back (not sure if seller is doing that, but that is OP’s story) imagine if this was common..that as a buyer you just have to
  14. I don't think any of my Puma stuff says sample. These look like regular retail tags. Maybe it's the women's puma gear. But I don't think sample necessarily indicates lower quality. If there are problems with the clothes then yeah, that's an issue. 2nd swing would make it right I think, if the clothes have issues.
  15. You can find a lot of options on apps or websites like OfferUp. but that is buying from local individuals, not a retailer. but you can get some really low prices on there if you hunt around.
  16. she could post a thread like this and I STILL wouldn’t complain
  17. Yeah your best bet would probably be to Google “golfwrx sim max vs sim2 max” I don’t see an exact thread but there are several similar threads and if you read through those it might help or ask the question in the equipment/drivers forum.
  18. Yeah, my post was meant to be humorous... But I did mess up CBS/NBC, I will give you that.
  19. Did you notice NBC put an asterisk by Cantlay's name...
  20. Unless you've talked to Rahm or the other players personally, you don't how they feel about the decision. Obviously what Rahm says publicly is likely not his actual or complete thoughts on the subject. Also, sports leagues change their rules all the time when they realize a certain rule is stupid. I believe this will be one of those times. Just because a rule exists now, doesn't mean it's a good one. They were obviously trying to deal with Covid on the fly. They are not immune from making and enforcing bad rules.
  21. The results indicate that the caddie doesn't have a significant effect on performance, assuming they are decent and don't upset the player. e.g. Phil has won with every caddie he's had. Tiger won with all of the different caddies he had. etc. It's the Indian not the caddie...isn't that the saying?
  22. Rahm and Callaway should each sue the PGA Tour for $ millions in damages. Let the Tour face some consequences for their stupid rule.
  23. In hindsight, I think the Tour will wish they had had the policy of: Isolate him and let him play his final round by himself If anyone thinks that is unfair, how can it be more unfair than forcing a guy to withdraw with a 6 shot lead headed into the final round? The withdrawal is too extreme. There has to be a compromise/middle ground.
  24. That is assuming you think the rule that someone should be automatically forced to withdraw in a case like this (after 3 rounds of the tournament), is a just and fair rule. Which I think a majority of us would disagree with you on. In hindsight, I think most people would change the rule to being something like...once the tournament is underway, players are allowed to finish the tournament even after a positive test, if they all agree to that rule. Or, a player can play the next rounds by himself, instead of in a group. Especially considering it is outdoors and most o
