    As if having people like Jigga as part of your fan base didn't demonstrate enough how trash of a school it really is, having a mini Poulter will really drive home the point even more

    Junior Poulter knows nothing of life in Britain, he only knows that swamp life so it's fitting he ends up a Gator

    So the plan in Ponte Vedra is to just take all of the PGL/SGL ideas and toss cash at players.

    When Rory shows up to a tournament and when Chez Reavie show up they get the same $ if they both go T-10

    but anybody who has been to a tournament or watched one knows that the better the field, the better the turnout and ratings.

    I'm not saying PIP is the answer or that I know the answer, but almost every other sport has guaranteed money for its stars.

    For the record I support the plan

    It's easier for someone else to figure it out and just take the idea. Doing stuff like that proactively would be impossible politically.

    Given that they played on this special Duel day, wonder if they just had to play to a bunch of jacked up pin placements

    I get the argument for star power but honestly couldn’t disagree more. They both play the same place in an event where there is no handicap or advantage for anyone. Why would one get paid more for playing the same?!? That is absolutely crazy. That’s what endorsements are for. If you want more than Chez…just fucking beat him on the course.

    Star players also get the Champions Tour to fall back on. Win three or four times and you get a lifetime of subsidized purses from the pga tour.

    I got to play the Loop about a week before the NLU crew was up there in July and I thought it was playable with some fun pins and slopes that repelled bad shots but totally fair. Overall I loved the experience playing the Loop in both directions but I can see why some of the guys didn’t like it in tournament conditions (especially with Tron’s horrific short game prowess on firm greens). On their breakdown pod they even complained about the par 3 course at Forest Dunes being too tough so I knew the episode was not going to be a glowing review.

    If you're looking for a bag that doesn't look like a billboard and has solid construction, it seems to be a great balance of affordability and quality. One reviewer, who I've played golf with said, "Looks new after 2 years, and I don't take care of it at all."

    If you're interested in Jones Bags, others have recommended looking at https://shaplandbags.com/products/stand-bag-2-2 , https://minimalgolf.com/ , and https://vesselbags.com/collections/golf-stand-bags

    PGA Tour Players supposedly use some of these on while playing casually. Not sure why we'd give a shit, because someone else is likely carrying them, but still it's an endorsement

    What people don’t usually pick up with the naked eye is that I’ve got what Tiger refers to as the “ole” move. Curse of a lot of former junior golfers who did the wrong thing to generate speed while undersized. Basically, right hip fires way too early, you get stuck, two way miss unless your timing is on. Cannot shake it

    Hello yes. Almost everyone I play with for the first time comments that I’m a blend of Hideki and Sungjae. I tried working on my takeaway a lot this year but that was throwing me over the top so I kept the inside sweep; the plan is to use our club’s new indoor facilities this winter to try to make some changes and not rely so much on timing

    The star players underestimate the fact that the PGA tour is going to subsidize millions of dollars in earnings into their 60s with the Champions Tour which literally no one cares about but still exists
