Sorry about that, here's the rest of it...

nature, fresh air, exercise, a sweeping away of mental cobwebs, genuine recreation of tires tissues. It is a cure for care, an antidote to worry. It includes companionship for friends, social intercourse, opportunities for courtesy, kindliness and generosity to an opponent. It promotes not only physical health but moral force."

  • THE GOLFER'S CREED

    "Golf is a science, the study of a lifetime, in which you may exhaust yourself, but never your subject. It is a contest, a duel, or a melee, calling for courage, skill, strategy and self-control. It is a test of temper, a trial of honour, a revealer of character. It affords a chance to play the man and act the gentleman. It means going into God's out-of-doors, getting close to

  • We need younger pros such as Cameron Tringale showing the next generation of golfers that tradition can be cool. Although prices can be high, Psycho Bunny has that right idea with its line of pique polos with a modern twist.


    Long live blades, wool, leather, and...TRADITION!!!

  • I agree. However, I do like to be informed and entertained beyond just the action on the screen. It is an art to describe the action in a creative manner and not be redundant.

    Love them or hate them, I believe Gary McCord and David Feherty add some flavor to broadcasts. They have a humorous and almost poetic way of telling the story. These two remind all of us of those certain buddies we play with on the weekends! They keep it all in perspective. It's just a game! Let's remember to have fun!

    Golf can get so "stuffy" where you can't say this or that. I say keep it real, Johnny Miller style. Call it like you see it. Sometimes the truth hurts, but it needs to be told. He gives us as viewers, which most of us are amateurs, the opportunity to learn something from the pros mistakes. How is that a bad thing? Can he get a little arrogant at times, sure. Johnny is a bright guy who knows what he is talking about when it comes to golf in my opinion. He doesn't let the network dictate his political correctness either, I respect that and obviously a lot of other viewers feel the same or he wouldn't still be behind the microphone! He adds that certain edge to the telecast. Keep up the good work Mr. Miller!

    On the other hand, I could do without Sir Faldo and Ms. Tilghman. Boring! They add absolutely nothing to a broadcast. I know when a putt is short, we just saw it. You don't have to say "that putt just come up a little short", REALLY? HUH! Kelly, stick to the interviews. Nick, do what you do best... talking about yourself. Please, just do us all a favor and make sure your microphone off!

    One more thing. If you want no commentary in your golf viewing, watch the euro tour. What the hell is that all about? No wonder the euro tour doesn't have the same following as the PGA. Who wants to watch those broadcasts? They are doing nothing to grow the game over there via the telecasts. I love golf just as much as the rest of you but it is damn near impossible to watch more than a few minutes at a time. Those mundane, monotone voices put me to sleep! If your not a diehard golf nut, there is no way you would tune in and be entertained watching those broadcasts. Isn't that what its all about anyway. I play golf because its a challenge and entertaining. Watching golf shouldn't just be a challenge!

  • Thanks for the post on my wall Chad. The Hawking Down on the lead foot is amazing stuff! That is from Moe and Knudson and more to the point Paul Bertholy who I consider a genius. The idea is that this firms the lead leg so that you do not land on a wet noodle. More importantly it encourages you to land precisely the same on the left foot every time. If you land on the ball of the foot on one shot and on the out side heel on the next you cannot possibly control where the bottom of the arc is and therefor what your ball position should be at address. Beyond that if you hit into a wet noodle of a left leg you stall and that may send the club head moving faster but with far less control. Usually the ball goes long left when that happens. The left toe hawk down all but eliminates the long left shot. Basically it keeps you out of jail.

  • Thanks for posting the video on "hawking down" the big toe on the lead foot....ABSOLUTELY spot on!!! The difference in my ball striking and consistancy is night and day. I had a problem with a lateral shift with my hips causing inconsistant angles on my downswing...This technique has allowed me to make consistant ground thumping...ball squeezing...laser beam shots like never before!!! Hogan's secret may be good...But this is BRILLIANT!!!

  • I thought the idea of a classic look for the U.S. Ryder Cup team was a good idea, unfortunately I believe it was poorly executed. The cardigans were cool, but in lavender? Why are we sending are men off to war in a foreign country wearing lavender? Let's keep our warriors looking tough in a classic way. How about more dark blues and blacks. And for those "trousers," I don't think any of the guys looked appealing in those things. Poor Phil looked short and 20lbs heavier in that gear. Tiger didn't even want to be seen in those pants! I say we get back to basics and try not to over think the gear for the next Ryder Cup. One more thing.... how about the players have some input and not let the captains wife have total control....just a thought!

  • I would just like to thank all the great people that started this site for us mortal golfers. Elk, Mr. Burke, Mike, Terry, Jimmy and those who I have left out. This site is fantastic! What a way great way to communicate with fellow fanatics of this game.
    I believe this site is getting better by the day. Of all the ways to learn from this site about golf, I would have to say the Video Vault has taught me the most. Studies say that most people learn best visually. The information that is provided from Elk, Mr. Burke and Mike is....PRICELESS!!! Nowhere else, are we as fans and learners of this game able to get inside access to the thoughts and teachings from such great and proven professionals.
    What would be really cool is if you gave us Dirters the chance to win a round with Elk, Mr. Burke and Mike. Or possibly put on a clinic where Dirters could attend. Maybe a Dirter convention? Just a thought for in the future!

    Thanks for all the hard work put into this site. I'm definately proud to call myself a fellow Dirter!!!
