I don't think so. High speed drivers are more appropriately called low drag drivers, and of course drag = lift so maybe low lift driver would also be appropriate. Throwing into a headwind increases...

They knew it was a good idea all along, they just were worried about a shortage of masks for hospitals so they straight up lied to us so we wouldn't go buy up the mask supply. Once the supply chain...

I don't have a preferred outcome. That is politics. I just follow the law and wear a mask, stay in my lane. Me getting bent out of shape in either direction doesn't help anyone.

Yeah he has played great at Winthrop. To me he just has that course dialed in. It would be cool if he could show up with a rock solid putting stroke and serviceable forehand. I'm not holding my...

But Will has always had notable holes in his game. He simply isn't talented enough. In order to be at the top of the current heap he would need to be better than he was at his peak.

$3 per hour at best... even worse than I thought. :gross:

As an adult, the value of time becomes more and more apparent. If I am making $3 per hour, I consider that losing money, not making it. ...

I think that first place in each division should AT LEAST make back their entry fee. So a $45 first place payout on a $50 entry seems dumb to me. Of course that means less payouts down the line, it...

No offense to Og, but I don’t think he fits into anyone’s definition of “well read”. More like studying for a game of trivial pursuit baby boomer edition.

I love buying stuff off Craigslist. The risk of death involved in each transaction is titillating. To date I have not been murdered nor murdered anyone else.

Bolded is what I am trying to say. I think that people using extreme grip pressure to force the pivot are making their aggressive swing arc play nice via grip power. The other way to go, which I...

Crazy John Brooks would have been a no brainer if he didn’t line up against Climo so often. One of those cases where playing against the GOAT takes the shine off you.
