  1. It won't automatically be the lowest score of the segment. Some of us suffer lapses of extreme incompetence even when 72 holes are played. I've twice totaled fewer points over 4 rounds than the 110 points I had this week. But I agree it was impossible to manage the lineups.
  2. I live in Florida now, but was born and raised in the Greenville area where everyone pronounces Clemson as if it were spelled with a "p". (Clempson for those who don't know what I'm talking about). I know that area well. I've played most of the courses there that were built before I moved away. How is a Michigan fan living in Clemson country dealing with all the Tiger fans?
  3. Here's the reward for a small amount of research and a HUGE amount of luck in the March Madness contest. I'm excited to be using this beautiful new Clemson bag. Thanks Sun Mountain and MGS!
  4. Thanks to Mulligan Scoring all my rotten eggs this week get thrown out. I'm doing better than I thought.
  5. I sure picked a bunch of rotten eggs this week. I tried to get a little "creative" and learned that just doesn't work. Looking forward to next week.
  6. Thanks guys. It was a great tournament. I was very lucky to win. Especially with Tazz sitting in the lead having picked North Carolina. Exciting down to the last shot. I'll try to post pictures when I get the bag. Sun Mountain makes the best golf bags available. I'm currently using a Three/Five and thrilled to have a new one coming.
  7. Who... in their right mind... would ever pick Villanova to win this tournament??? Wow! What a great game!
  8. Hi Rev. I'm fine. Occasionally lurk in the forums but I'm always reading the MyGolfSpy Blog. I continue to see a lot of familiar names here. Hope you are well and making lots of birdies.
  9. I believe that when a golfer reaches the skill level of a low single digit player, that person does not lose that skill even when they don't play frequently. It's sort of like learning to ride a bicycle... once learned it is never forgotten. Just limited play or occasional practice is enough to keep that skill sharp enough to break 80 in casual play. This is probably true for all skill levels. Skills don't deteriorate quickly and are regained rather quickly even when they have been abandoned for a long period. I believe this is true for golf and all other endeavors that require a level of skill.
  10. Thanks for the link. I probably wouldn't have read the article otherwise. I think Earl Woods is the key factor in everything for Tiger. Earl learned in the military how to motivate men to perform their best in combat and trying circumstances. And he took that same approach when raising Tiger. The only difference between Tiger and some other kid down the street is that Earl told Tiger every day that he was better, stronger, and mentally smarter than any opponent he would every face. Tiger not only learned to believe that, he took the desire that all boys have to please their father and made it become a reality. Without Earl we have no Tiger Woods. Earl was the great motivator. All of Tigers interest in the Navy Seals and military was about his father. When Earl passed, that was the beginning of the end. I think the article clearly identified many of the issues Tiger faced after the loss of his father. Loss of motivation, relief from the intense pressure to succeed, etc. The story of Tiger might have been different if Earl had lived longer, but of course we'll never know.
  11. I'm a fan of the SI Vault too. I have a permanent bookmark to it on my bookmarks toolbar. If you take the time to search, you can find some great articles. Articles on golf instruction, articles on major championships, etc. I subscribed to SI for many years and often go back to read articles that I remember. Ken Venturi won Sportsman of the Year (in 1964 I think) and it is a good read. Also about that time there were two instruction articles by Claude Harmon Sr. There are some gems on putting too. Those are just some that I remember.
  12. I like this picture from Golf Digest. Sent from my MotoG3 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Thanks Bridgestone for the prizes and MGS for managing the contest. Great prizes! The weekly prize will keep everyone motivated even when residing in the middle of the pack which is where I usually find myself. Looking forward to playing this year.
