Re: Tiger arrested for DUI.

For one who has had two spinal fusions (one in 19977 and one last year)I have reserved my hopes that he could come back with a swing that would reduce the stress that the modern golfers put on the back. Their is no way that I can compare what he is going through but my rehab is on going after 16 mon...

Re: The greatest of all time.

I agree with Bryan K with the exception of Cobb, Speaker and Ruth. If you accept them without he rest of the great hitters from the 20s and 30s. If you do that you have to remove most of the great players from the 40s onward. Remember my original premise. The greatest is a subjective matter and not ...

Re: TaylorMade Sold by Adidas. What's next?

It's called pre-planned obsolesance . It used to be the auto industry but now it's razor manufactures \. They allow the present blades to degrade so they can brag about their new and improved product when it comes out.In fact they just changed their tooling to provide the same new and improved produ...

Re: The greatest of all time.

Thanks Bryan. Obviously some sports can use stats to improve the product. Billy ball proved that to the extreme. . but it's hard to justify individual performance when people allow passion to get in the way of common sense, For instance. My example about Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. As a devout Do...

Re: The greatest of all time.

Bryan K...If one could find a statistical sample to answer my question life would be easy, I was trying to suggest that emotion plays a huge part in assessing who was or is the greatest of all time,Over the years I have been blessed to being in the presence of some of the finest athletes of their er...

The greatest of all time.

Trying to identify the greatest of all time is a exercise of futility. When I have a public speaking session I often open the session by asking where my audience comes from. Living in a senior community in Arizona I get get responses from just about ever state in the union,I then ask the various peo...

Re: Knowing When It is Time to Move Up or Quit

It's was pretty much easy for me. Long gone are the day's when I could think of going for the green on a par fives, in fact I realized I couldn't reach many of the medium length pa r fours. I figured if Nicklaus and Player could move up so could I. Now after all of my physical problems I am looking ...

Re: Single length irons

Years ago I took an old set of Wilson blades and cut them down to 6 iron length, They worked pretty well in the mid club range 4-5-6 but the fact that a lost the balance with both the 7 - to the sand wedge and the 2 to the four ,found that hitting long irons was almost imposable. I will confess that...

Re: How do you find a good instructor

I suggest that you find someone that will give a few swing thoughts that will help you in the short tern. Some instructors try to create a perfect swing too someone who has been playing with the same old swing they have been using for years. How many times have you heard a p;layer say that he took l...
