  1. I don't give much credence to anything Faldo says. I don't dislike him, but he's just like the myriad of ex pro jocks that proliferate the air these days; they all say stupid s***.
  2. Wednesday was the official start of league play. I shot a dismal 45 on the back 9. I couldn't sink a par putt to save my life. I sure could make fantastic bogey putts, though!
  3. Personally, I was a bit disappointed that Tiger didn't disqualify himself. Having said that, The "rules committee" or whatever they are called, saw fit to levee the two stroke penalty instead of DQing him. I can live with it... so long as the same approach is taken with another player should the same thing happen in the future.
  4. Thoughts and prayers for all the victims. I hope they catch the piece/s of s*** that did this.
  5. I think Tiger was given a fair penalty. I will also say that allowing a TV viewer to call in and change the game is just ridiculous. Why couldn't the officials look for themselve's? I'm sure they had access to it just like the rest of us saw it. In any other sport/game calls are calls. Some are reviewed and some aren't. NEVER in any other sport/game is a TV viewer allowed to influence the outcome of the contest. The USGA needs to take a serious look in the mirror and decide where it goes from here as far as how rules are interpreted and penalties are meted out. It would behoove them to get
  6. Just terrible. I sure hope the two deaths are the only ones and the injured people recover. I'll be saying prayers for Boston and this country. The world is F***ed up and people generally disgust me these days.
  7. MGS owes no one any kind of explanation for who they decide to accept as a sponsor. The problems between a customer and a sponsor has no bearing on the integrity of MGS. If MGS were to decide to cancel the sponsorship they would owe none of us an explanation for doing so. The relationship between Krank and their customers, and Krank and MGS is no one's business but said parties. I've read enough to know that I will never order from Krank, other than that, the rest is none of my business.
  8. Very nice work. Is the grip section Cocobolo?
  9. I use Free Caddie all the time. It seems fairly accurate for a free app, probably within a 5 yard variance. That's close enough at my skill level.
  10. I would say I'm probably a mid capper (84-80 regularly.) I vary between 101-105 on LM's whenever I hit on them.
  11. I don't swing like a robot, so................. I never buy anything I don't hit first.
  12. Green label what? LOL....never mind. I should have scrolled down a few more. Enjoy that JW Green..... they aren't making it any more.
  13. I'm hoping to knock 3-4 strokes off my rounds this year. I average 84-80 per round. I would like to post a few rounds in the 70's. I managed to do it three times last year, but my average round was still 84-80. If I can take a few strokes off, maybe I'll see a few more scores in the 70's.
  14. Ok..... the beer post is awesome! I'm at work and wanting a Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale, now.
  15. Exactly what I thought when I heard that.
  16. Welcome Sai. I'm rather new here myself, but this place is great. None of the sort of thing you mentioned goes on here. The members here are all great to talk with and ask questions of. Looking forward to reading your reviews.
  17. Kinda saw the delay coming. It sucks. Normally, I would be on the course playing, but this crappy Ohio weather keeps me in front of the TV.
  18. The Japanese are very adept at metal work. Just look at the Samurai swords of a few hundred years ago....... incredible craftsmanship. I would assume the same craftsmanship and pride is handed down from the generations. I'm a Cabinetmaker, and my most favorite tools are my set of Japanese chisels that were made by a descendant of a Samurai sword maker. I wish I had the skill and money to own/play a set of these irons.
  19. I'm going to nit pick for a minute. The one that says "Different then other Golf Sites" should read: "Different than other golf sites".
  20. ^^^ That's why I decided to to go with the MP-64's when I bought new irons a while ago.I loved the way they felt when I hit them sweet, and I liked the feedback I got when I didn't. I hit the 59's and I just didn't seem to hit them as well as the 64's. I don't know what my game will be like with them this year, but I'll just keep hitting them untill I get a good feel for them. Not only that....... they are just so nice to look at.
