That 71 and 72 will kill a differential real fast
I’m not sure you understand how a GHIN is calculated or what it means
Wat. The differential on that 71 he shot is a +1.9. I'm a 10 hcp and those scores combined with the course slope/ratings are how you get a 3. That's how the system works.
or how dates work
This is a clinic on how to close out a tournament by Rose.
Bert picks another winner
Oh. Hell. Yes.
You guys love this Solomon guy yet if you met him in person he'd probably spit in your face and tell you to shine his shoes
He threw a dart into 18 at Pebble from 245 out though. I’ll give him that
Played a full round with him at Bandon and hung out over several drinks for a few days last year; you couldn’t be more wrong
This is a weird post.
The Barstool fan is trying to say both sides are bad
And let's be honest, he's a Miami Phi Psi - it's much more likely that he'd ignore you entirely (assuming that a. you are not also a Phi Psi or b. in one of 4 sororities) than spit in your face
Never misses an opportunity to inject some weird barstool grievance
Imagine being a proud flag waver for Barstool.
Imagine making random weird unrelated references because somebody thinks a bloggers attitude sucks ass
Not sure anyone here has said they “love” Soly. He’s a very knowledgeable talking head who does a great job interviewing guests. We all know he takes his own golf a bit too serious but he can play. The other guys seem very likeable and I find it hard to believe that they would be such good friends with someone who isn’t at least passingly polite.
"blogger" pejorative: check.
Very fair and normal response
Is there some NLU/Foreplay feud I’m unaware of?
Solly catches plenty of shit here too, it has never been a love fest
NLU constantly shitting on LIV while Pat Perez palls around with barstool all the time doesn’t help I would guess.
speaking of which
Idk, but I’m not a fan of either.
Used to love going to the WMPO, but man has it become over saturated off the course. The field is amazing this year.
People shit on Soly ITT a lot, but this tweet sums up part of why I don't listen much anymore.
Mostly because of Randy. He pretends to be this intellectual but most of his schtick is Skip Bayless hot takes.
I’m not seeing your beef here
Randy's only contribution seems to be waiting to fire off Skip Bayless hot takes. Rory Eulogy? Who tf is asking/interested in that?
He pretends to be an intellectual but if he covered baseball he'd still be judging pitchers by wins.
yeah that was a hilarious moment wtf
If anyone is skip, it’s Tron
randy just seems apathetic
Would feel dry as hell if it’s just 5 guys all going over Data Golf numbers or getting real in the weeds about golf architecture. Everybody but Soly is basically playing a bit for entertainment. I don’t think DJ Pie was actually rooting against Finau but there’s more content there to lean into it than say “you’re right Soly, he’s awesome he’s just had some bad luck” for instance
They're the worst 2 by far imo
I like the rest of the guys
Soly seemed genuinely choked up when discussing his dad caddying. DJ was perfect with the Macklemore joke
I really only watch the videos. Dont always have time for the podcasts, so I tend to enjoy them all. But I could see how Randy would wear on people. The foreplay videos are generally fine as well, but that’s as far into the barstool world I care to go
The Rory eulogy was a few years back and was legitimately hilarious.
If you have a beef with Tron and Randy, I’d point towards their NFL takes more than anything on Trap Draw.
idk between Shanny and Stinky Dak I would say it wasn't a bad year for Tron NFL wise
They dance on the line of old white racist guy takes when they talk nfl players
Not to mention Tron absolutely crushes everyone else on the gambling front. It’s not even close.
He is without a doubt the best analyst they have. People just don’t like his schtick and can’t see past it many times. But he is regularly more accurate with his predictions that anyone else they have, and that’s not just in the golf sphere.
Big Randy shouldn’t be brought into any situations where real analysis is required. Hearing him say “I didn’t actually watch this weekend but I think XYZ…” is not good for business either way, especially as they continue to legitimize their business model. He’s great in casual discussions though.
I understand the constant need to find flaws in people when they become a bit oversaturated post run of success (I’m pretty tired of homa content personally), but I find all the NLU guys pretty harmless and mostly entertaining. Tron can go a hit far at times but otherwise they’re fine with me. Randy is just the book keeper who happens to show up on air from what I gather.
I like DJ Pie and no one else.
agree with this, i just like ragging on Solly bc he takes himself too seriously.
Yeah the episode following their kapalua experience was cringe, but I’d probably be extremely obnoxious in that situation.
