    First day of physical therapy for the neck and shoulder.  Still plan to golf in South Carolina on my trip next week.  May have to leave the driver in the bag.  Will take it easy and just enjoy being out there.  Hit a lot of short irons.

    Play with a 7 iron only. You’d be surprised at how well you can play with that one club.

    That sounds like a fun idea to experiment with.  

    I have an excuse now to pick it out of the sand and heavy rough!

    meet me in the baseball thread and tell me why Bonds is a “garbage person.” I’ll spot you steroids and churlishness with the media (which is really not something you should care about). go ahead, lay out all his garbageness.
    Why don’t you tell us why Tiger is a garbage person first?

    I actually did it once. Played an entire round with nothing but a 7 iron. It was a lot of fun and brings out the creative side of the game for sure. Surprisingly, played pretty well too.

    overturned, “allegations”, and tiger’s dealings with dr. gallea could raise some suspicions too.

    and, steroid use is not “confirmed” but i’ll accept it.

    Dude that is some weak shit right here. 

    Bonds has been divorced more times than Tiger. Only difference was Tiger's stuff was played out in the media. So one guy gets a pass because he was able to keep his personal life out of the public eye? I just can't believe the fact that someone cheated on his wife makes you this upset. Half of all marriages end in divorce....

    And tipping? This is it? I was expecting a lot more cynical reasons for all your festering hatred towards the guy all these years. Poor tipping and cheating on his wife is all there is though. So, basically, you hate most people on this planet.

    Poor tipping (Wobbie MUST have an ugly hatred for Kuchar) according to his friends in Vegas.

    What were the Bill's? What were the tips? Do you find it possible that your Vegas friend(s) may have given poor service? Or are they simply hearing this from yet, another source? Is it possible your Vegas friends (or their sources) also have unfair expectations?

    I thought it was common knowledge that Tiger is pretty cheap.  Those stories of him training with Navy Seals and not picking up bar tabs for guys who don't make much money are pretty brutal.  Don't know if it makes him a garbage person but not a good look.

    Aren’t pretty much all professional athletes garbage people to some extent?

    Tiger taking another week off.  He'll be ready for the PGA.  After his play in the last three majors I can't see him finishing outside of the top 5.

    Got the new M6 D Type driver the other day. Just got back from the range and the slice has been minimalized

    Also if Rory wins the PGA, I get my money back. So there’s that!

    It's cool that they're mixing things up with this team play event in New Orleans but man does that course look like shit.  Maybe it just doesn't come across well on TV but this looks like a municipal course.  And there's no one there!  Galleries have been tiny...I guess not much of a golf scene in NO??

    Well that didn't take too long.  2 hours after this post I bought a new M4 driver.  Figured I would split the difference of paying for a new M6 or getting for free if Rory won the PGA.  Never even hit it but just wanted to make a golf purchase.

    SiriusXM played the infamous April 30th, 2003 show in Uniondale, NY today.  That obnoxious/annoying “USA! USA!” chant after Bu$hleaguer is the same BS chant I hear from drunk blowhard golf fans at Ryder Cups and other golf tournaments. I hadn’t noticed this before, it just hit me.
    Those golf fans are as lame as the bozos booing the band and chanting “USA! USA!” at this concert. Just my opinion... and I cheer for Europe in the Ryder Cup just because of that stupid chant (truth).

    Handicap revision day.  I've went from a 9.1 to an 11.1 in the last couple months.  I've lost that loving feeling on the tee box but Ive been hitting my irons and putts well.  Need to get a couple good range sessions in.

    I am a 17 handicap so i am always trying to change my swing and end up hitting all over the place.  That said,  what I have noticed with this driver is there isn’t as much spin.  I just hit it straight a lot more in all directions versus slicing or hooking.  I got some more distance with it.  

    I like it.

    ^^^it's been rough going for me to get out this spring. Very very little good weather so far. And when we have had it, I have to either work or rush to try to get stuff done around the yard. Had a day in the upper 60's about 2 weeks ago...after a couple days of steady rain. Tried to squeeze in some time at the driving range, but they were soaked...and closed.
