  1. As much as this decision is going to affect some teams more then others and wasn't a easy one for the league to come to. Thank you commissioners for going through it all and appreciate all your time and consideration to our issues throughout the season. Also thanks because we know this is more or less on fantrax not being able score it and so on. But to my point it was nice to see just over half the league vote in such a short period of time. I love seeing the involvment with this group. From the teams trading, to waivers and the overall engagment of the fantasy league community its pretty awesome. 

    Edit: apparently waivers ran sooner then I thought so I am one of them in the boat who would be looking to reverse a move I made if possible.

    Keep it real all... it's just a game for fun.  The "golden ticket", forum badge, and bragging rights are inconsequential. I'm stoked to see how far up the ladder I get with no players playing this week 😂.

    I dunno... The title feels pretty darn good. I'm doing everything possible to not give it up and to make it back to back years!

    I see this as an absolutely valid point. There’s also nuance to consider that hasn’t been a factor in the past and could be considered new information prompting the change. 
     

    In the past 3 years, we played the Corales and, as a baseline, I generally support its inclusion. The difference here is we’ve got a healthier player pool than before so more teams have more good players that qualify for more events. As a result, most of the league is unable to field a competitive team this week without substantially compromising their season. 
     

    This situation would’ve been difficult to foresee before the season started so, based on new information, we put it to a league vote. 

    As a suggestion if it does go to a BYE can we enable those teams who have dropped certain players to make corrections before standard waivers run? I am not one of them, however want to make sure it is fair for all teams. I would even support giving teams who have already dropped players a priority on waiver wire for the next week given this may have put them at a last minute disadvantage. 
    Waivers itself should also be pushed back a day or so to if it goes ahead as planned. I have submitted several claims, however if it stays in or is promoted to a bye week that will therefore effect my roster moves. 

    EDIT: I am of the benefit of being in europe and up early so can make most adjustments morning of waivers, however many others may not get that chance.

  4. In a perfect world I would love this to be a BYE week, but 100% agree that teams would have set themselves up already for this week based off it being a participating event. It's a long season, yes I really don't like tossing away weeks such as I am with this one and last week to an extent, but it is what it is and I am confident my team is still the strongest in the field for the long haul. It is a little too late to change this week with teams already making some roster decisions. 
    As many have said we knew about this from day 1 so it shouldn't be a shock.

  5. My memory is one thing I am proud of. I normally can replay entire rounds in my head and can recall a lot of shots. Some good, some bad and others. There are courses that I remember more from as they were more special rounds I would say. Example a lot of them from my New Zealand and Australia trips as well as some low rounds. Arccos is a great tool and I would normally go through the entire round later that day to make sure it was all right and there was rarely shots I didn't remember. 
    Hoping that this stays even as I get older and simply have more on my mind!

  6. Yeah going to be another week that is just punted away. Looking at the field not sure if there are many worth picking up. May replace Hadwin with someone playing, but means I have to cancel the other waiver move I was planning on making. Will be happy when we are back to normal field with our typical names.

  7. I know I likely won't get the same return as I did with him in my last trade, however I am going to look at moving Fowler again. Really like the guy and just want to see success for him, but he may do better if he's not on my squad. 

  8. Courses are reopening here after the ground has finally thawed and dried out a good bit! Stores are reopening meaning I can go in and do a driver fitting soon. After being off work since beginning of December looks like we will reopen for kids and professional teams and on top of all of it saw MGS had well over 2000 guests on the site from the new forum testing thats coming out. Up a LOT from what I have seen the last few months. 
    Have a good weekend all!

    I have tested product before. I have a bagboy new push cart. Live in MN and love walking and playing golf and talking products.

    Not quite in the right thread. Here is a link to the one I believe you're looking for. 


    Saw on ESPN that there are 0 perfect brackets and after day one there was .92% that were still perfect. Incredible...at least I don't feel quite as bad even if I had my winner knocked out on the first day.

  10. Taking a look over the site it's phenomenal what they offer and just the sheer amount of options. It is interesting how there are no stock shaft offerings (at least what i saw) everything is extra, which can't say is a bad thing or I'm surprised, but wonder why they don't have stock offerings which would be no upcharge in some cases?

  11. I wish it wasn't the case having to write off weeks, but it's a Long season and with this format of 10 matches it shouldn't hurt and help anyone too much. That being said I'll be happy with winning 2-3 matched this week. Makes for 2 bad weeks, but hope my team is strong enough through the main schedule and FedEx cup to make a good run at the title!

    i feel like the conversation drifted a bit from the OP but it is what it is. Certainly happy to see the "winner" on there but SIM results are interesting given the huge amount of SIM drivers i'm seeing course and in bags on the ranges.

    I believe a lot of that also has to do with just how popular TM is. They have a huge following, top tier marketing and are a generally good looking club. I believe an average consumer would be drawn to them or Callaway withouth much thought. Regardless of where they end up on the most wanted they will likely always be purchased more then say Titleist, Cobra and even Ping. For me personally I would like to try out the PXG 0211 and Mizuno series given their price and compare it towards the Sim and new Epic. If there isn't a great difference between them then I wont be spending the extra money for them. 
    I have a feeling a lot of people with be in a similar situation as me and we may start to see some of those other brands in more bags as the price differences are just so big now.

    Sorry dog... Matty is most certainly NOT human. 😂

    True, but they are a bit more picky with with their shots and Ian/him know his swing so well it's scary. 

    Also realizing the poor english used in my post, but not about to go change it. Computer is set up for german and would take too long to go back through... Think the just of my point is made.

  14. Hope for a quick recovery, but happy to hear you got the vaccine! Have fingers crossed the vaccines come fast and furious here soon, but not holding my breath to get it anytime in the next year. 
    And hope for a even better round when you play with all of them!

  15. I had a set of the JPX EZ Forged. Got a great deal on them and ended up selling them to a friend after I got my Ping e1 set. 
    From what I recall here are a few notes to pass along. The feel was not like a typical forged club, but still smooth and decent sounding. They also had great distance and consistency. Loved loved the soul of the club, was kinda rounded off both the front and back edges and proved phenominal turf interaction that was much slimmer then the Ping e1 irons. The finish wasn't amazing and faded, but still in the bag were a good looking club. Now here comes the not so great, the top line even though they tried to edge it back was thick and the main reason why I didn't keep them. They just didnt suit my eye, although where it really got to me was the shorter irons, they just looked really big and well chunky. Again thats a looks thing so everyone is different. They are smaller and therefore to me much more appealing then the normal EZ's. Finally again this is personal, but the shaft I had just didn't get along with me. They were off the rack and I am sure I different shaft may have helped, pretty sure its was the XP 95's which I don't get along with. 
    Anyway there were a lot of things I liked about them, but some of the asthetics just kinda weren't my cup of tea. The performance was great and my friend has had some of his best rounds ever with them, hes around a 8 or 9 handicap and loves them. 
    I have some comparisons photos in my Ping i210 review here that may be worth checking out if youre interested.

    Reading that makes me hapoy that I have 6 in this weeks event; provided Berger’s rib injury doesn’t convince him to drop out.

    And funny enough all the trades I have been looking at making all involve Berger.

  17. Looking through most ppl have between 2-4 taking part this week. I looked at ways to up mine from 2 but won't be dropping anyone so maybe look at making a trade work, but not holding my hopes up.
