    Interesting timing for Finau to be taking ricochet shots

    Kim being overrated isn’t the dumb part of your original post; the drive by on Finau is the bad take. 4 wins at age 32 isn’t keeping pace with the likes of Spieth/JT, sure, but it’s an enviable career for most guys. His major record is lacking, but the list of guys that you can say that about is quite long

    It’s not a Finau criticism at all. If anything, I’m making the claim that guys like him deserve more credit, at least compared to Anthony Kim.

    It’s kind of like that saying about living long enough to be considered the villain. Sometimes for narrative’s sake, it’s better to leave before you prove to folks you can’t win the big one. Because for some unknown reason, people automatically assume Kim would’ve won multiple major championships. There are far better players with similar or better resumes that are now known for their inability to win the big ones. Those guys deserve far more credit and Kim deserves far less.

    Honestly my hope that LIV fails has more to do with Norman than Saudis. Like if LIV had Saudi backing, a likeable face and didn't try to be as disruptive but just additive - I could probably get over the Saudi thing. Like if PGL had gone with Saudi backing as originally planned - instead of their idea being hijacked by fucking Norman.

    Chambers is a beaut right now. Still looks like poa on greens is bumpy this late in day, but does look like course has improved.

    Anyone used ship sticks before? Heading to Dallas next week and going to play Saturday and Sunday. Thinking about using them instead of the airlines.

    I used FedEx once back when they used to advertise shipping golf clubs a lot. They charge you a ton for the damn box and when I got there the course threw it out I'm pretty sure. Other than that it was good.

    Don’t know if he’s still there. But I used to know the pro out there pretty well. He used to be the pro at the course I grew up playing and he ran a really good youth program.

    It was the disaster that was Fox/Norman along with it being brown and not US Open like conditions that treated the course unfairly - but the tournament was fantastic imo.

    Yep, it's pretty great and also the best value in the world as it's way less than $100 even at peak rates.

    Escena was a great track. Perfectly maintained and each hole was inviting. Every single one was just begging to get birdied. I had zero.

    Unfortunately, it’s hot as fuck in Palm Springs in August. I was also up drinking until 4a. My pants were soaked with butt sweat before I even got to my second shot on the first hole, and I could barely stand up much less swing competently. Had to bail after nine

    I agree on finding a better course. Did you feel like you were playing holes from those various courses though? As long as it feels pretty close to matching the replica holes I’d like to give it a go.

    kind of? It’s flat ass north dallas. Hard to recreate some of those holes real faithfully. So much is the surroundings. But sure, you know you’re hitting into 17th at sawgrass.

    hopefully others have played to give you a better opinion than mine.
