Cool pics, thanks for sharing.

I'm definitely in the play rather than watch category. I'll catch the end of the Masters and Open's but that's it. Love playing though. I will say I find the modern game boring. They need to nerf just about everything, from clubs, balls, to the courses. Someguy carrying a driver 320 off the tee simply isn't a realistic experience.

I think pro golfers are boring individuals.i would like to see more background stories during telecasts. FollowedLahiri on Tuesday. He's from India. How the helldid he become an elite golfer coming from India?

I guess I should edit to say most golfers are boring....Lefty isn't. I guess Fowler and Bubba aren't. There are more with personality, but it doesn't come across by the telecasts.

I agree, golfers are pretty boring. Even Tiger, who was all over the news/telecasts/etc, is fundamentally boring. He's just not that interesting.

I was just down in Tampa/Clearwater for a week. I played a few rounds but due to a leg injury it did not go well and my scores were not in my usual mid-70's range. Once I get my leg fixed (surgery) and get back to practicing I think it should be okay. Playing good golf does take a lot of work. Maybe maintenance is a better word. I managed to keep a 3-4 hdcp. when I worked, and now that I'm retired I have the time to put into it. Just need to get healthy again.

We typically went to Valspar every year and have gone since it was the PODS, and the Transitions after that. Used to spend a few nights at Innisbrook and play there but it's getting tough to get rooms now during tournament week. Had to take a pass on Valspar this year due to my leg problem, but want to go back next year if we can.

I was on the raod for the final round and had to listen on Sirius. Marc Leishman is a good dude. Good for him.

DJ has been on a historic run the likes of only Rory and Tiger have rivaled the last decade or so.


He has to be the overwhelming favorite heading into Augusta. I will be rooting for him he seems like a genuinely decent guy who appears to be over some addiction issues he's had in the not-too-distant past.

Outside of a couple other courses he's owned Augusta more than any other. If he can't even play there, yes, he is toast.


He was fun to watch while it lasted. The game will survive plenty good without him though..it always has and always will.

My facebook is loaded with stories about TW......I ignore all of them - all click bait, I guess. Can't believe the sport is unable to move on past the Tiger.
