    Kuchar is embarrassingly cheap

    I've read a number of different accounts of this story and it seems that there are 2 sides to it and truth probably lies somewhere in between. * Kuch says deal was $3k for the week, which caddy does not dispute. * Kuch says he offered to pay $1,000 bonus up front, caddy claims bonus, based on finish, was an unspecified amount * $15K appears to be offered to caddy after dispute becomes public IMHO, its between Kuch & the caddy. That being said, it were me I would have offered him $40-50k if I had won.
  2. 1. First name/home state or province- Dave, Georgia 2. Current rain gear- An old windbreaker & pants from an old track suit 3. Worst rain you've ever played in- Once played at Cacapon State Park in WV in the longest, hardest down pour I've ever been exposed to. My buddy and I were the only two people on course and putted through raging rivers on the greens. We actually stopped for lunch before going back out to finish the back 9, which infuriated the staff that they had to hang around just for my buddy & me.

    Stability putter shafts - hot or not?

    I don't know. I saw someone asked ScottGolf, the independent club maker on tour, his thoughts and he said he hasn't seen anyone using them yet, so he couldn't comment. I also saw Club Champion boasting a 54% improvement in putting with the shaft on Twitter. I asked them what metric was used for that claim and they said "owner feedback". Not exactly hard science!

    Progressive Lenses for Golf

    I wear progressives with correction for double vision and cannot wear them while golfing. I usually just swing at the ball on the right. Very interested to hear your results and if it might be an option for me.
  5. Assuming The Big Shot Tuned is the top pair, those are more my style.

    Motorbikes and Scooters on Golf courses

    I think the FINNCycle is cool, but in the real world it may have limited applications.Our membership is mostly 50+, with a lot of septuagenerians, and this would not be a widespread option. Also, I have to imagine insurance to have these at a course would be a lot more costly than for an EZ Go cart.
  7. I've seen a lot of people using the putting swords for practice. Anyone use them? Are they worth $29?

    What/How did you practice today?

    It was supposed to be in the 60's here yesterday so I went over to the practice area and chipped and putted. First time I had held a club in about a month. Chipping was surprisingly good. Putting from inside 5' was deadly accurate, I couldn't make a thing from outside that range. It probably was about 50 with wind chill and I was freezing. The older I get the less tolerant of cold I get.

    Best rounds when alone

    I love playing alone and have had some of my best rounds. Played Torey Pines by myself, playing through 3 groups and it was a blast. Played Grayhawk in AZ and had my closest ever hole in one with a 4-iron on a 187 yard par 3. The first time I've ever wished for the ball NOT to go in, because no one would have believed me.

    Still use my Foreman when it's too cold, or wet, to grill chicken outside. Also great for Reuben paninis!

    2019 Golf objectives

    Same main goal as always-play more than the previous year, which I have not accomplished since I was in my early 30's! Take lessons from 1 PGA pro- Last year I took 5 clinics all taught by different people leading to more confusion than improvement Go to the practice area no longer than 2-3 days after the lesson to practice what I learned Go back to putting right handed Take the wife on 2 golf weekends

    Is golf your main hobby, or just one of many?

    My bad! I was looking at your profile pic and looks exactly like our resident lucky contest winner's. I humbly apologize.

    What are you listening to?

    Love TSO. Wife and I went to one of their concerts on a whim and bought tix at the venue. We were in the second to last row in the theater with a sprinkler pipe in our direct line of view. When we got to our seats these two gorgeous blondes walked up to us and said "we are with the band and we wanted to thank you for coming out tonight we would like to move you to the front row!" It was an amazing visceral experience, we could feel the heat of the flash pots and the bass notes where pounding us in the chest! A night to remember. To this day we both get tears when we hear an Old City Bar.

    Recipes Needed

    Air fryers appear to be the new fondue pots, I expect to find them at yard sales for $5 in the next year or two. And if you know what a fondue pot is your old like me.
