I’m a new fan after reading his comments on ESPN today. Seems honest and classy. Well done!  Good karma for Torrey Pines now. (Also interesting pics of Augusta mods farther down in linked article).

Interesting to compare this mature, well-considered response to a difficult situation with the childish s*** show going on with the other two. 

I’m a new fan after reading his comments on ESPN today. Seems honest and classy. Well done!  Good karma for Torrey Pines now. (Also interesting pics of Augusta mods farther down in linked article).

Let's heap praise on him for not being a jerk in an interview.   Low at start, flat in the middle, 2-wire, No-grade (2.0)

Very thoughtful and articulate (and mature beyond his years).

Good for him.  He accepted the rules were in place and understood there could be consequences.  No outrage, no hypocrisy and no expectation of special treatment.  Also stuck to the script and stayed neutral on the vaccination topic (whether or not he thinks everyone needs to be).  Gained a ton of respect for him.

I know a few waitresses/waiters in AZ that would disagree with u. They would actually draw short straws to see u had the task of serving him and his people.

Blah blah,  tiger woods is a horrible tipper. Guy had the correct response to his situation, don’t see the need to bring everything else in. Btw, I hate Rahm.

He may have improved his media game, but he's left a pretty wide swath of burned bridges in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area.

Didn't take long for the immaculate decision crowd that has never made a youthful mistake to swing by and micturate on a good story.

 

Well done - extremely important to seek out and highlight the worst in people.

Prime example of why I never judge a guy by an angry outburst in competition.  If you compare him here vs Bryson and Bruce’s child like actions , it’s very clear to see who the adult is.    Throwing a club or cussing yourself out in the heat of battle is not a good barometer for anything except that very small moment in time.  Give me a guy who runs hot any day.  It shows he cares enough.  I don’t trust a person who appears to have no temper.  Too flaccid to do anything great.

Got to applaud Rahm for the way he has handled it all. It would have been easy for him to be bitter and unwelcoming of any questions, etc but he has handled it like a man.

Sorry, Cag Paddles gives him a 3 wire, Ok.  🙂 

 

It's all about the boarding rate anyway.  The rest is just fluff for the one-eyed pig [email protected] to have something to do when they aren't flying.

 

And btw, only a flight time wh0re passes up a perfectly good wire that is in battery...
