Maybe the guy had been having trouble with his irons and wedges (sh@nk!ng everything maybe) and it carried over to his confidence in his woods and hybrids, too. Maybe he felt that day, his best chance was to use the putter only.

if you bothered to read any of the articles about him, or listen to the podcast, you'd know this isn't true.
I, actually, did read the article about this one guy, but the blanket statement that playing with one club is disrespectful to the game is inaccurate.

@Canadan and @HipCheck

Here is the overview of the course the "putter guy" played. I've not played this course, but know a few that have. there is not much elevation change so its rather flat and open course. there are some forced carries off the tee, but not after that. As for "brown out fairways" this is course is kept in ok condition, but remember this is Arizona and this year has been hot early so courses are rapidly falling out of prime season and transitioning to the summer bake out.

The high end course are watering enough that good golf still is out there, but this course is a casino resort course, so they could be really hurting for revenue during the Covid19 shutdown.

Here is a pic from the video showing him playing;

The burnout is real. Top tier roll incoming!

Says who? You?

I'd be surprised if the majority didn't feel that he was disrespecting the game by playing in a tournament like this. Looks like the majority discussing it feel that way, outside of you.

Well the use of trinkets got me thinking, I thought it was from a classic disney movie that we just watched with #1 fan my niece who is almost 3.... seems to apply to a lot of "collectors" and golf nuts around here...

Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete? (NOT WITHOUT FANCY IRON COVERS)
Wouldn't you think I'm the GOLFER
The GOLFER who has everything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one MAN cavern hold?
Looking around here you think

I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs?
I've got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more (SWAG, BALL MARKERS AND IRON COVERS)

Sorry its been a rough day and its only 1pm. Almost Beer - Thirty.

I like iron head covers, not necessarily fancy ones but just covers to provide some protection to the irons and everything they will bump against. I use them but I don't think they slow me down at all. I grab the club out of the bag and while walking to where the ball is I take the cover off and put it into my rear pocket. By then I'm to where m ball is. After I hit the ball, I reverse the process and hop back onto my cart and away I go. Not having them just results in beating up all of your clubs.

Come play in July when it's 110F....that is when the burnout is real!
Summer desert burnout is great for driving stats - it's like hitting onto asphalt, you get more roll than carry! :ROFLMAO:

Finally got a chance to listen today. I really want to take @Canadan up on his iron head cover challenge. Two words: Canadian Tuxedo. Light wash colored jean material on the outside, matted ivory colored lamb wool plush interior.

This is by far my favorite new podcast over 30 minutes with two funny dudes. Besides fake doctors, real friends. Awesome job guys. 👍

I will say I’m worried about listening to this at work once I have to go back into the office for fear of bursting out laughing.
