Re: How far do you really hit the ball.

I am typically between 210 and 230 (at sea level), with the odd one going to 250 or even longer. I voted 220-230 but could have voted 200-200 just as well. I never really understood what made such big difference possible. I mean sure, I know why I managed to hit a few over 300 yards in the summer, o...

Re: 2018 The Masters Tournament

I am happy for srogers13 who won his bet at 50-1 (I had misread that he supported Rory and Stenson, in a reply post to mine, when there was indeed a post earlier when he mentioned Reed and Fleetwood, and his reply was not to me...). Other than that, meh... I don't particularly like Reed. Maybe he'll...

Re: PGA POLL: It was once Phil, then Sergio, now...

Kuchar, Fowler, Casey. I believe they all came in 2nd, some multiple times... Rickie was real close yesterday with that last putt on 18 (and the pressure that Reed must have felt to 2-putt from a ways above the hole).

Re: Who will win the Masters 2018?

Ok, Reed is in the lead, but does anyone else but me sense the call of history for Rory? What a great round by him today, complete with a little bit of (good) luck. And Stenson is still there, on the first page of the leaderboard. Great final round coming tomorrow! And @srogers13, as you have a ride...

Re: Who will win the Masters 2018?

Well, round 1 is in the books: Spieth did great, both Stenson and Rory did good (and having both of them there at -3 make me feel pretty good about my picks) and Tiger did ok at +1. He's not out of it by any means and had some terrific shots and also some stinkers. Get rid of those and you might hav...

Re: Why do you take so long to hit the goddamn ball?

Completely agreed. I played yesterday with a guy like that, on a slow day to begin with (the 5-some in front of us was not particularly quick and had over 1 hole open in front of them by the time they got to 16). The round took over 5 hours on an easy, flat, muni. Why? I ask. Why? I mentioned to Mr....

Re: Who will win the Masters 2018?

Ok, I took the plunge and took both of them at 50-1 to win and 8-1 to finish top 5. Both had the same odds. As in you actually put money on the line? In Vegas? Remotely? Forgive me, I am not a gambler: I spend a few $$$ in person at the tables (blackjack) or slots when I am there in person, but hav...

Re: 2018 The Masters Tournament

The thing about Stenson that I am shaky on is that he is going to try to rely more on a driver this week. There is a reason he hits so many three woods, and it is not just because he is long with it. You may be right that he will, but I don't think he needs to. His 3 wood is very long as you know, ...

I voted Rory, but I would like Stenson to win it. Two of the best ball strikers on the planet. If their putter works this week, watch out.

Re: 2018 The Masters Tournament

Thanks Beef for that video. I thought it was pretty damn good, all of them, but the best were as Doug said. :thumbs

I like Rory's chances if he can keep his putter hot. And I like Stenson too. Now, if Tiger is even in contention (say top 5) on Sunday, that would be amazing!

Yup. Same exact reasons for me.

Re: Who's your least favorite bigger name player?

I voted Bryson, Keegan and Rory S. Yes, Webb Simpson would have been one of them for me too, ahead of Bryson. At times Bubba grates badly also, but I go back and forth on him. I don't see anything wrong with any of the others: in fact I had to push myself to make Bryson the third one (the other 2 we...

Btw, I am with Beef and Doug on this one. Without saying that he will win 5 majors this year, it's pretty obvious after a dozen or so rounds on the PGA Tour this year that Tiger is (and maybe will stay) competitive. And I say: welcome back. I would love for Tiger to get to 83 wins in his career and ...

Re: Random golf thoughts

Or another (probably stupid, but here goes) idea: ban the driver for the pros, as part of the hard card for the USGA, R&A and PGA Tour. It seems that most of them have a 3 wood that goes 280 or so, or maybe a bit more. Voila: problem solved. No need for a rule change or anything. It's just a conditi...

Re: Random golf thoughts

Even if the USGA and R&A are right about distance getting out of control (hint: it isn't), any remedy should only apply to professional golfers and not the rest of us. Can you imagine "reining in the ball 20%" for our game? Instead of say a 240 yard drive, which is admittedly pushing it for me, it w...
