In response to: Would Tiger Woods have dominated using old equipment among questions golf bloggers want answered

Nolsen [Visitor]
The biggest challenge in Golf more than anything else is mental fortitude and that is what Tiger Woods excels at and there is absolutely no doubt about that. This is probably one of the most difficult games to close out and Tiger has an unbelievably brilliant record when he goes into the final round with a lead. With stats like that it is hard to imagine this player being anywhere else but at the top position irrespective of the era in which he plays. It is his grit, determination and skill that has allowed him to earn the tag of the greatest golfer ever. Modern equipment is hardly n excuse. Of course I would not be surprised if Tiger was handed an old set and asked to compete with the field and he would probably still end up with his arms around the title.

tiger fan [Visitor]
Wie's finish and $108,332 paycheck were the best since the 2006 Evian Ladies Masters, where she tied for second and earned $255,333. Wie played the first SBS in 2005 as a 15-year-old amateur and tied for second.

Cheap Bastard will be remembered for many things. His sunglasses, for one. Also, his complete inability to ever find an actual "deal" despite writing a blog called "Budget Golfer."

I could go on and on about Percy, but he wouldn't want that. As we all know, he was a private man who never looked to shine attention on himself, regardless of his penchant for referring to himself in the the third, fourth and fifth person multiple times in every post. Regardless, I find his demise simultaneously tremendously sad and minorly time-conserving.

As one of Cheap's closest friends, I can tell you he will be deeply missed. There will be no funeral as, after learning what those things cost, it occurred to us that he wouldn't have wanted that. There will, however, be a small gathering of friends, co-workers and family this coming week. In lieu of flowers, mourners are asked to make a donation to the LPGA's Dinah Shore Scholarship (Percy was a HUGE fan).

Rocco can certainly be proud of his efforts this past weekend and today, of course. I was hoping he would win..he deserved it and playing against Tiger that way, man I am SO proud of him...he is a good 14 years older than Tiger and not in as good a shape but when there's a will there's a way...second place at the US Opens is nothing to scoff at...Congrats, Rocco...

If I'm not mistaken there was a lot of talk about Tiger not using modern equipment when he first started the tour. He used older woods and irons prior to his Nike days.

In response to: Would Tiger Woods have dominated using old equipment among questions golf bloggers want answered

Andy Brown [Visitor]
Recently the blogosphere has been abuzz with some people believing Tiger would not have dominated had he played in a different era with poorer equipment. It speaks volumes on the greatness of a player when the only way possible to bring him down from the number one position is to contemplate how he would have performed in another era. While Golf equipment plays a major role in the way the game is played but you could use the excuse of modern equipments for players of a lesser pedigree like Bubba Watson and others to wonder whether they would have been playing at the same level had they been handed some of those old canes!

The biggest challenge in Golf more than anything else is mental fortitude and that is what Tiger Woods excels at and there is absolutely no doubt about that. This is probably one of the most difficult games to close out and Tiger has an unbelievably brilliant record when he goes into the final round with a lead. With stats like that it is hard to imagine this player being anywhere else but at the top position irrespective of the era in which he plays. It is his grit, determination and skill that has allowed him to earn the tag of the greatest golfer ever. Modern equipment is hardly n excuse. Of course I would not be surprised if Tiger was handed an old set and asked to compete with the field and he would probably still end up with his arms around the title.

In response to: GolfCarolina.com readers say Pinehurst No. 2 doesn't meet expectations

J [Visitor]
My wife and I played Pinehurst No 2 a year ago Labor Day weekend. Based on all the hype this course receives, it was a great letdown. No 8 was much more interesting to play.
Yes, the greens are undulating and a caddy did help in reading them but the course itself was not memorable.
Essentially, tree lined fairways in just so-so condition. The bunkers were so rock hard that an open club face was rewarded with a bladed shot.
Don't expect carpet like fairways or penalizing rough. When the pros play they narrow the fairways and grow the rough to toughen the course, otherwise it is just an average to below average track with a lot of hype.
No power carts are allowed on the fairways so we walked the course. Pace of play suffers when players go back and forth to their carts for clubs and sand bottles to fill the divots they make.

In response to: Golf bloggers and others reporting on Southern California fires

The head pro at Barona Creek told me that the course
served as a critical firebreak during the fires
in 2002 (I believe). The Nationwide Tour Championship
scheduled to be held there next week will show whether the course was as successful this time at slowing the flames.
