    Mostly the bolded IMO

    Once you make the cut there is a lot more upside to be had chasing down a backdoor top 10 or 20 than downside of falling backwards

    anyone have a rec for refinishing a wooden club? I've got an old Ping Danser putter that's kinda nicked up and could use some help.

    No, I meant what I said. The last two rounds have really been a struggle for him in tourneys where he's made the cut in recent times.

    he's the athlete who cared more about public perception and his image than anyone probably ever so it's a little weird for him to walk up to a Pro Am with a set that his grandpa pieced together two decades ago

    Arod using a non conforming driver, (not the hush hush hot drivers that everyone else uses) a legit banned driver, is a little on the nose.

    It’s hotter, ie more trampoline effect than is currently allowed.

    I feel like Soly needs to take a break from advertising +2 in every bit of content that gets put out. I know it's relevant here, but I feel like it gets mentioned a lot.

    I think they need to cut down on the coverage takes. I feel like it’s 80% of their twitter feed and it’s a little tired at this point

    But that is the answer. :idk: is it “better” maybe, but the reason it’s non-conforming is because of the trampoline effect.

    That's a shame because he's pretty funny on his own account.

    Also, they seem to really, really love Spieth for some reason. I guess because he's a friend of the pod?

    Right, the response by networks to golf Twitter calling out their shit product is to rub their noses in it.

    You have Andy Johnson railing on the tour and NLU on the networks

    I like Soly and the coverage sucks. I agree they should give him shit about trying to be like a tour pro. Neil betting him he couldn’t go a round without club twirling was a subtle jab.

    NLU used to be top notch and now with getting more connected over the last few years, have been more unauthentic. I really cant blame them and dont see any other way that this wouldnt happen, but it does suck. Biggest problem I have is them being buddy buddy with certain people and not treating them the same as tour players they dont know and also how they "know" every story/everything going on, but cant elaborate. So sick of their pods talking about these stories they hear, but cant share. Shit is like Rivals

    Agreed. I stopped listening to their pods other than interviews with players or other golf personalities. Shotgun Start is a much better listen. Andy Johnson can get off the rails sometimes but Porath does a good job of keeping things balanced.
