LJ, you watching?
What do you think, will Tiger pull this one off or is Els or Austin going to catch up with him? Just from looking at the figures Els is having one good day today!

I'm with alienator on this one-- watching golf is torture. as a matter of fact, when the TdF is on 3 times a day, I make it my mission to keep it on while my father-in-law is over-- he loves to watch golf. Often times I just go into my bedroom, shut the door and watch anything else!

Let's not even talk about the golf course that comes up to a road that's part of a 3 mile climb-- I love having those guys stop and look at me like I"m some kind of nut job (which I am)-- usually I'm muttering "golf is for puss--es" under my breath, or if they're overweight, I'll usually comment about how they should be doing something more physical.

come to think of it- can someone lock this thread for me :lol:

Do you guys play golf yourself sometimes? Or only watching on television?

Well Thomskie....I watch it on television. Then I put on my red tiger shirt and go play sometimes. However much I pretend to be him my opening drive always goes right :wink:

That is a perverse, sick, demented question. I'm appalled that you had the chutspah to even ask such a malevolent question.

You're forgiven. Still, it gives me the chills every time I think that real human beings are actually golfing..... :grin:

This is the view from the wife's grandmother's house (this afternoon). The camera lens on my mobile phone appears to be far from clean. They have a big net put up to keep balls from hitting their house.

I've heard about the Swede's interest towards nudism, but this is bordering insane. :roll: :crazy:

That's a beautiful view. Shame about those odd people in the picture who've obviously got lost on the way to the supermarket judging by the fact they're all pulling shopping bags on wheels :roll:

Can't stand the game. I would even rather watch cricket or tennis.

I'm in the Winston Churchill school that it's the waste of a good stroll. As for Alienator having a gun, i reckon i'm the fasted draw in the West with my remote control when it comes on the TV., i.e, switch channels.
