    10-2 is where I expected Penn State to end up on the season. I didn't think one of those losses was going to be Minnesota.

    Presidents Cup - who does TW pick?

    Spieth or Fowler. Personally, I'd pick Rickie, but I understand if Jordan is the play.

    Pictures of the course

    Champions Retreat is pretty nice. The whole time I was playing there this meme was floating through my head: Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    PXG Layoffs

    I disagree. Brands that successfully build prestige around the name can get away with more wallet-friendly options. To make a comparison, the Gibson Les Paul has several options less expensive than the Les Paul Standard, but the idea of a Gibson Les Paul carries enough weight that even if you...

    What Course Are You Playing Next?

    I'm playing Champions Retreat tomorrow. Should be awesome. Thank God I have a boss who likes golf as much as I do.

    PXG Layoffs

    As I mentioned earlier, it's entirely possible Parson's idea of the business model has changed. If you think your product is already the best, you reduce R&D staff and focus on a slower release schedule. If you think your message is out there and that message is good, you don't feel like you...

    PXG Layoffs

    Which isn't out of line with his explanation of restructuring, and also potentially fits with the idea of hiring 41 people. After all, I could cut 26 from R&D, marketing, etc. and hire 41 fitters and retail liaisons and demo day guys and call it restructuring, though I can't say that necessarily...

    PXG Layoffs

    I guess the way I read it was they hired a bunch of people to help open new stores and they either weren't what they were really looking for as part of the post-restructuring organization, or were temps from the word go. Do you really consider the people who stop working for you on 27 December...

    PXG Layoffs

    The idea that Bob is cutting bait on PXG bums me out. He said he didn't plan to make money on this venture, but I wonder if it's reached a point of unsustainability.

    where are the par 6 holes ?

    The recently defunct Turquoise Valley GC in Naco, AZ had a par 6 called the Rattler: https://www.insidetucsonbusiness.com/news/profiles/arizona-s-oldest-golf-course-is-home-to-the-par/article_ae9e9cb7-1949-5a76-8b4b-7275c6d07192.html

    Do you take off your wedding ring or other rings when you play?

    Nope, got a quality silicone ring with non-slip qualities, specifically the Zeus ring from Groove Life, and haven't looked back.

    Tell Us About Your Last Chip In

    South Pointe on Friday with @M2Giles, I spent all day chipping like absolute trash. Found myself with a fluffy lie and decided to just flop it up rather than try to chip it down hill. Flopped it perfectly, caught a downslope, rolled in for bird. I should do that every time.

    What To Give Away

    A gap wedge. For whatever reason, my current 50° goes the same distance as my 54°. So I need a wedge that fixes the hole I currently have between 110 and 125 yards.

    What State?

    States I've played: AZ SC GA VA CA FL NC NY The problem is that most of what draws me to this or that state is destination golf, but actually golfing there is more likely to be public courses. I'm gonna say Wisconsin for its combination of beer, destination golf (Whistling Straits and Erin...
