    So, I'm at the Memphis Zoo 1969, staring at the White Rhino in paddock, I look at the stalked info-podium where an engraved brass plate tells all "This rare Rhino was captured by Ian Player, brother of golfer Gary Player." :cool:

    Tiger will win the Masters without a doubt. This sets up the perfect story for his triumphant return to glory. Already a done deal.

    Zambo answered it although I don't carry a hybrid. My 5 gets 200-215. If I'm at a Par 3 that's 210, I'd use the 5 and hope to hell I get a roll out of it of some wind carry. I too try to tell myself to hit the 4 just like the 4, but it never works that way.

    I carry a 52, 56, and 60 degree.

    I agree. The young great ones today seem so ordinary. No swagger, no personality. They seem interchangeable. Like you can’t tell a Lexus from a Mercedes from a Hyundai. Tiger brings something more to the event.

      Meh...it’ll take a lot more than Tiger winning the Paint Brush Classic to make my head explode. If he wins 4 more majors to tie Jack there might be a none to slim chance of me losing it. Until then, winning some rinky-dink events or even winning another major or two is pretty much the ceiling I predicted for Eldrick many, many years ago.

          You should stay away from Vegas & online gambling sites until May.

            :wtf:

            You guy's would've just LOVED playing with blades & choosing between carrying the 1 iron or the 4 wood. Ball first gentlemen, ball first.

            My Mizuno blades have treated me quite well. There is just no reason to make the game any harder than it needs to be.

              There weren't hybrids & woods were actually wood. Steel shafts. One big plus was those sweet Balata covered Titleists. Club & ball technology has changed the game so much even the courses have had to be redesigned to keep the challenge up to what it was originally designed for.

              Not that that's bad, it's just very different & skill sets have changed. Ball striking ability has lost much of its importance to "player improvement" clubs.

                Palm Harbor but they kept calling it Tampa. I’m guessing Tampa tourism paid for that. It’s north of Clearwater & practically in Tarpon Springs.

                  It's media ignorance that leads to the misleading broad brush stroke. The tourism heads for this side of the bay, not Tampa.

                  Tampa has the trendy neighborhoods and high crime, we have the beautiful beaches and coastline.

                    I carry 3 wedges too 52, 56, 58 instead of any longer clubs. Well i guess i do have a 3 and 4 in my bag but mainly use them if i end up in the woods and need to hit something low. Other than that i've never been able to hit the longer irons worth a ****. Debating about whether to shorten them up like that guy that has all his clubs the same length...maybe then i could hit those better?

                      Yeah I'm very aware of where this course is...i'm just lazy and call anything near a big city the name of the big city...

                        No one gives a $h!t about Palm Harbor anyway. It's fine.

                            If you shorten them it be like chocking up. You wouldn’t hit them any farther than the 5. But I do agree, they are good for getting out of the trees.

                            But the degree of the face is still different... would that be a wash...i don't know and i was kind of joking anyway. Unfortunately i only get to play about 10 times a year max anyway so my game is crap anyway. Went from around a 5 or 6 to probably 15
