    Distance potential is determined by vertical jump

    I find this video very interesting and this data makes perfect sense to me. When I was in my early 20's(and longer) I had a 28" vertical jump and now it's more like 18". The longest PGA Tour hitters have a much larger vertical jump and the long drive champs are at another level. Obviously...

    Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds

    I picked up a pair of the new Beats Fit Pro noise-canceling earbuds a few days ago, and so far, I'm impressed. They fit my ear more comfortably and way more securely than the Airpods Pro for things like running or other fitness workouts. They are true to the Beats sound, warmer and heavier on...

    PGA Tour Ban on green reading books

    It's been widely reported that the PGA Tour player advisory council has voted to ban green-reading books. It still has to go to a full vote to approve. What do you think? Do they contribute to slow play on the PGA Tour and/or for the rest of us? I'm not a fan of green-reading books or apps...

    At home $13 Covid rapid test for those who are interested.

    You have to order them in two packs but now that we are starting cold and flu season, some of you may be interested in a test where you don't have to run into a pharmacy or your doctor. I currently have a sore throat/cold and my wife wanted me to test for Covid just because a lot of my symptoms...

    Is wearing sunglasses a regional thing?

    I’ve been doing college tours with my youngest daughter since last Friday and I’ve observed a strange lack of sunglass wearers at Holy Cross, Boston College, and Boston University. We’ve had cloudless, beautiful, sunny days and these college tours were about 90 minutes outdoors during the...

    Your Left Brain is a Lousy Golfer.

    This is an offshoot of the "Feel vs. Data" thread, and I thought it might deserve its own. I discovered in my 20's that the analytical(left) side of my brain could wreak havoc on my scores during a round and learned to shut that part of my brain off after all the preshot adjustments for lie...

    Will Rangefinder use at the PGA Championship speed up play?

    I think that speeding up play is the intent of allowing rangefinders to be used at the PGA Championship in May. Will it? I agree with Morikowa that it likely won't help. I'm fine with them allowing rangefinders as they already have the yardages readily available from their caddy within...

    Apple Facebook Feud ramping up!

    The Happiest Cities in America according to Men's Health.

    https://www.menshealth.com/health/a34919033/happiest-cities-in-america/ It strikes me as a bit strange that there are not many warm weather cities on this list. Also the only large (top 30 in metro population) cities in the top 10 list are Minneapolis and Denver. Agree or disagree with the...

    Thanksgiving travel plans 2020

    AAA is forecasting car travel to be down about 10% over last year and air travel to be down about 50%. Automobile travel for Thanksgiving makes up over 90% of the total so overall travel is not down as much as I expected this year - about 50 million vs almost 60 million last year. Our family...

    New iPad Air that looks like the iPad Pro

    Apple is releasing this next month. I'm guessing sales will be brisk with all the telecommuting and online schooling. My college kids prefer the iPad Pro over a laptop for school especially for taking notes in class...

    Diving into the world of blade putters after using mallets for decades...

    I was over at my sisters house early this week where she has lived in our dads house since he passed 5 years ago. His golf clubs were still in the garage so I decided to grab his old Ping putter circa 1965. He was a good putter as an 8 index at his peak and had the same Ping putter in his bag...
