Golf Questions.........10 More !!

When I'm stuck for topics, questions are the way to go. At least they create conversation instead of me providing it when none exists in my pea brain. Average golfers can have an uninspired round, so I suppose I'm entitled to an occasional uninspired post. So, here you go......

1. Am I the only one that can't wait for The Masters, to the point where the golf in between seems pedestrian?

2. I think belly/chest/chin putters should be outlawed. You should only be able to grasp any club with your hands. I don't care if they putt better. They're goofy.

3. Speaking of goofy. Golf sandals should be outlawed as well, unless you have a verified, serious, foot ailment and a note from your doctor.

4. Isn't Paula Creamer the best thing in the L.P.G.A. since DNA testing? Plus she's a great player.

5. I hate to keep harping on Ernie Els.........so I won't. What I'd give for his swing!

6. You'd think The Hooter's Tour would get more exposure. I know I don't keep abreast of it.

7. Shouldn't The Hooter's Tour fall under the L.P.G.A. instead?

8. The P.G.A. Tour altered it's cut policy today. I glanced at it briefly and decided that as brilliant as I am, I have neither the time, nor the energy, to figure it out.

9. Which reminds me. My best friend, a golf instructor, commented about my game after a few lessons once. He said, "All you lack for golf is talent, motivation, and desire." Ha! Guess I proved him right.

10. Does anyone "real" actually buy $300.00 golf shoes?

11. We're getting 18" of snow here and then a "cold snap". Is bowling hard?

Ponder those kids.

Til' next,


  1. HEY
    1) All golf on TV is pedestrian, it’s the way its televised, and delivered
    2) Couldn’t agree more, drivers have limitations. Why can your putter be longer than your driver? (
    c. Length
    The overall length of the club must be at least 18 inches
    (0.457 m) and, except for putters, must not exceed 48 inches (1.219 m). For woods and irons, the measurement of length is taken when the club is lying on a horizontal plane and the sole is set against a 60 degree plane as shown in Fig. I. The length is defined as the distance from the point of the intersection between the two planes to the top of the grip. For putters, the measurement of length is taken from the top of the grip along the axis of the shaft or a straight line extension of it to the sole of the club.
    3) Holly cow, I agree again (3 for 3) Not very appealing is it.
    4) Yes she is creamier than most.
    5) Who couldn’t like Mr. Els, but he needs to pick it up for his fans we pay his salary, don’t we?
    6) Why in the world would we know about the Hooters Tour, maybe the Nationwide Tour, or the Champions Tour. But not the Hooters Tour.
    7) Who’s on the Hooters Tour?
    8) I know you are thinking about speed of play, right/ well I’d bet my last nickel the TV networks are involved. What about the fans at the course, what about the money spent, traveling to see them play. Do you think that they want less or more? As for speed of play, tell them to move it, or lose it.
    9) Thorzene
    10) Maybe my usual foursome all added together
    11) No, but the sand baggers are even worse.
