Re: The Tiger Thread

I haven't heard the term "sizzle-chest" since The Jerky Boys were the next big thing.

Now maybe you can help me lobby the FootJoy company. Their gloves need to be renamed HandJoy. Please, help. This has been bugging me for ages.

Lately I've been having some serious grumbles about the way people ride escalators. What is up with that? I feel t...

Re: The Tiger Thread

I would ordinarily say that when the president calls, I do his bidding. With Trump, it's difficult. It's not because I don't like the guy, either. It's because people around him have a funny way of becoming scapegoats. I want nothing to do with Trump, but it's more out of fear than anything else. He...

I"m gonna have to say "no". I usually fly Southwest. I have been A-List Preferred most of the last few years. I occasionally will fly Delta or American.

Re: Newly Cut Holes vs. Beat Up Holes

Ha, I always thought that volcano effect was caused by people who stand right next to the holes to get their ball out. Their weight is essentially compacting the ground around the hole but not the lip given most people know not to stand on the hole. Maybe it's a combination of these things? I never...

Re: Newly Cut Holes vs. Beat Up Holes

I completely agree that having the pin in helps in a lot more cases than it hurts. However, when it comes to the old and worn out hole placements, the only thing that I believe would hamper the ball from falling in is the volcano effect that you mentioned. I'm actually kind of convinced, though, tha...

Re: Shitty swing thoughts thread

"Keep your head down." Worst swing advice ever. I used to have a terrible chili dip on my swing. It developed because I concentrated so hard for so long on trying to keep my head down. People were always saying "you lifted your head". What was actually happening is that I was dipping down and then l...

Re: Just Keep Swimming

Looks to me like you're dipping on your down swing. "It's a process". When you compare it to prior videos I'm virtually staying still. I know this feeling as well. I have had a bad tendency to lift my front leg for as long as I can remember. Every once in a while, a playing partner comments on it. ...

Re: Paperclips - online text based game

It was interesting. I kind of like games like that. it's simple with goals. I don't need fancy graphics. I'm a text based person.

So I left it running overnight. Today, I learned that there is an end.

Re: Random golf thoughts

So...out of curiosity...have you ever tried boiling them in water to warm them? Not a good idea. The heating of them in water will allow the plastic cover, whether urethane or other, to absorb moisture, which can change the weight. The same thing happens to a ball sitting in a pond for a long perio...

Re: Random golf thoughts

If your golf bag has tiny little pockets for tees, and you actually use them to hold tees, then chances are you suck at golf. When I get a new bag with those, I always fill it up once, then never again :P So do I. And then I never use them, so it stays filled. I think there was that one round back ...

When I walk 18, I carry a full gallon jug of water. Sure, it's a deterrent. Water is heavy. But it is necessary. Also, make sure you eat or drink something before and after the round to ensure that you have an adequate electrolyte balance to absorb that water. Bananas, coconut water, and Gatorade ar...

Re: driving range confessions

I typically find that courses that include range balls in the green fees are either very nice or very crappy. There's no happy medium to be found there. I've yet to run across a course that charges by the hour. However, I will say that my favorite practice facilities are the ones that have a large n...

Re: driving range confessions

That's kind of funny. If I really need to hit "one more ball", I'll grab a ball out of my bag. There are usually a couple in there that I don't ever intend to play on a course.

Re: Severe downhill lie to a distant uphill target

Thanks for the analysis, Mr. Fish. When the ball is above my feet, I usually choke up and take a normal swing. The drawback of this approach is that, since the toe of the club has a tendency to get stuck in the turf, I actually have more of a tendency to push the ball with this scenario than I do to...

Re: Severe downhill lie to a distant uphill target

Interestingly, I've never been able to accomplish a draw (or hook) when my feet are below the ball just as I've never been able to accomplish a fade (or slice) when my feet are above the ball. Additionally, my draws (or hooks) always (and I mean always) have a low trajectory with lots of roll, so I'...
