    This weekend, I played in my first competitive plaque tournament in about a decade - 3 day Fall Member Member. 63 holes over three days. Partner was a -10, I’m an 18. In our flight, he was giving strikes to almost everybody, but I got 3-4 a side off his ball. We finished mid flight, won a...

    To this point, I think it's a fair question to ask if the "one-dimensional nature of professional golf is a bad thing" -- in regard to professional golf. Expanding the argument about the one-dimensional nature being bad for all golf is a less focused discussion, and one that will be less...

    I guess it depends on who is doing the assessing. I’m guessing 99+% of the people playing these course that are at risk of losing prestige in such a manner don’t have a lesser experience because of prestige discussions that might be emanating from the mouths or keyboards of a few golf...

    I’m in the “there’s not a problem” Camp. WF was WF to everyone but one player. Pebble seems to have survived Tiger. It’s not like BC has dominated every course this year. And perhaps bomb and gouge/ or generally swinging really hard at all your shots takes a physical toll on players...

    We will just have to power through it. But not with an Amstel Light.

    The first 73 times, maybe.

    I can't get enough of the Phil Amstel Light commercial. Or at least NBC thinks I can't. Too many f'in commercials...again.

    TFP is spot on with that analysis. I've enjoyed the Fore Play shows, but my son's golf trash talk game with me has taken on a distinct Fore Play flavor. Good for him, bad for me.

    I went on Thursday in 2006. I was amazed at the rough, and how players were hitting wedges out of it only 10 feet from the fairway. The 6th hole was a fun watch, seeing the players mess up a short hole in many different ways. I watched Tiger on a few holes, and recall he did not do well...

    2020 Cowboys: Jerry Jones Hosts a Slumber Party and Gets His Coach

    Seems not kicking the FG early in the 4th qtr to tie the game was a bad idea, although I suspect statistics may have indicated it was right call.

    Perhaps. After a few holes, we made it our goal not to finish last, and just managed to pull that off. We played with the same group yesterday. Playing same hole, put third shot into pond after it hit a tree limb. I dropped from about the same spot as the day before, and put it on the...

    I thought I would regale the Husband-Wife Championship debacle from Saturday. We started on hole 3 - a downhill dogleg left par 5 that is not too hard if you stay in generally good position. Road on left of hole, plenty of room right. There are two ponds near the green, but navigatable, and...

    Real Life Fantasy Golf - Following Rob

    Finished -12. T36. Not a bad way to kick off the golf year. Had a chance to do more, but these are the best players in the world.

    2020 Hard Knocks: LA Gear

    It’s been better in the past, but I my son and I still enjoyed it. The Raiders re wrote the script keeping the big news out of the show. The cuts on this one weren’t as poignant to me due the practice squad fallback - those four extra slots helped. No between team scrimmages limited things...
