    I had a subscription to GolfWeek for a couple of years. That was an enjoyable magazine since it had all the Tour standings, scores, news, etc. Lots of reading in a very thin magazine.

    About the only thing I read anymore in GD (or GM, I don't remember which) is the "Whats in the bag" page about Tour pro bags. They always have these little insets telling how far that pro hits each club. Driver 280... 3-wood... 255... etc. Look at those yardages of Tour pros, then go read some golf discussion boards on the 'net. There ain't no Pro who can hit it as long as 80% of those posting on one of the leading discussion boards. Don't see how they can make a living hitting driver 280. After all, most posting on the 'net can walk in a buy a $500 driver off the rack and hit every ball 350 with no fitting, tweaking, energy, ability, talent...................

    Pro's list the distance they expect to hit it on even their worst days.

    Amateurs list the distance they hit it that one time with a gale force wind at their back and a drop of 60 yards from the tee to the landing zone and the planets happened to align just right and they got all of it. That's why my 'average' driving distance is 350.

    I get both GM and GD. I enjoy the articles. I don't get much out of the equipment reviews or the instructional bits.

    Is there a half on commando? Maybe a nice 13/64ths commando?

    It depends on whether or not your unit is 13/64's of mine.

    If it's a kilt topic shouldn't we be using the metric system?

    I have no issues with the kilt whatsoever, it's just not my tradition. I love that the tartan represents families / clans. I think it's wonderful that Scots celebrate this. I was asked at my sister in law's wedding to wear one but politely declined. I think it is a dishonor to the tradition to wear one unless you have Scottish blood in your veins.

    My sons were page boys at that wedding and were asked to wear kilts. I had to put them on, and thought I had figured it out OK, however the boys kilts were at their ankles as opposed to at the kneecaps. The wedding photographs are funny. I was held to account, but there were enough Scotsmen present to have helped address the shortfall or should I say longfall!

    I already have issues with measurements in inches. It gets beyond embarrassing if we talk about it in meters.

    I applaud your sense of tradition, but I would doubt that a proud Scotsman would be dishonoured by you wearing a kilt. However, you would be expected to provide your own, as Scots are worldly cheap. :D And, you'd have to hold up your end of the table when the drinking started.

    FFS, we taught the Scots to drink! They even stole our whiskey!
