    Mixed Tour Event??

    Meaning a PGA player paired with an LPGA Player. Do you think this happens soon? Would you watch? Any teams you think would be really cool to watch? Where should it be played? Maybe a really cool unique track to help build an audience and get the biggest names to play?

    Pick Your Shot Under Pressure: Part 3

    Did 2 of these a few years ago and they led to some good discussion. Here's the scenario. You have a chance to win $1M, but you can only pick 1 of the 3 shots and have to get up and down from there (meaning shot and 1 putt). Which one do you pick and why? (Don't Forget to Vote in the Poll too)...

    Hot Take: Spieth Is The New Duval

    My Hot Take: Jordan Spieth is the New David Duval. Let me make my case. Jordan Spieth is currently #77 in the world. It is crazy how fast he has fallen. It got me thinking, is there any other golfer I can remember who went from being on top of the game to just losing it so quickly. One name...

    How Many Putting Grips Have You Really Tried?

    How many putting grips (conventional, left hand low, claw, arm-lock, belly etc) have you really tried during your golfing career? Not just fooling around on the practice green or in the basement etc, but have actually committed to over at least a round or two (or more). When you tried the new...

    Predict the 2021 Player of the Year

    The 50 Yard Shot

    The 50 Yard Shot, aka the "Partial Wedge" for most of us. It seems like it should be so easy, but for a lot of golfers it is one of the hardest shots. So let's hear from you. Do you consider yourself good at this shot? What club do you use for it most of the time? Any swing thoughts you...

    Create The Perfect Club

    Thought this could be a fun idea. Create the perfect Driver or Irons based on Clubs You Have Played in terms of the following: (1) Performance, (2) Looks, (3) Sound/Feel. So as an example mine would look like this: Driver: Performance of Callaway Mavrik, Looks of Titleist 913, Sound/Feel of...

    PNC Championship Thread

    Figure we should get a thread going for this one. Obviously a lot of us will be tuning in to see Tiger and his son Charlie. Some other big names are Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, and of course Jack, Tom, and Gary, and Jon Daly. Annika will be the first woman to play in the event as well...

    Do You Enjoy Playing Very Hard Courses / Setups?

    So a bit of background. Yesterday I played the course that will be hosting the PGA event in 2 weeks here in Detroit. Last year the scores were very low, and apparently the Tour told them it needs to play much more difficult. So in response they have grown the rough like crazy especially...

    Who Influences Golf Purchases The Most?

    So its now 2020, and a lot of things have changed in the golf industry over the last 10 or so years. My question is, who do you think influences golf purchases the most? Would it be tour usage? Would it be the OEM's through advertising, social media etc? Would it be Youtube reviewers who...

    Swing Changes - Do You Embrace & Enjoy Them?

    Let's say you go to a good instructor for a bit of a "tune up", but instead he recommends some pretty major changes to your swing. You know they will likely help you improve long-term, but the reality is you will probably get worse before you get better. Do you commit 100% to making them...
