Remember when Aaron Baddeley was doing commercials and it had a bunch of hotties calling him "Bads"? LOL I don't even remember what those commercials were for.

I think they were for MacGregor. He had a third round lead in the US Open at Oakmont in 2007 and shot an 80 on Sunday. FYI….the guy who won that US Open is currently serving time in jail.

Random golf thought: was playing 9 holes with my friend and her son, and the kid (17 year old) was telling me about "good" golfers like this: "My friend Aiden is a really good golfer, he can hit it like over 300 yards..." He talked about some other "good" golfers and his qualifier was always how far they could hit it, never anything else. I blame that other golf site for this dumbass way of thinking what good golf is.

It's all about length! Why do we have such jacked up iron lofts, today? So you can brag about hitting your 8 iron as long as you used to hit your 5 iron. I loved the old U.S. Open narrow fairways with rough that actually was penalizing. It's become a game of "bomb & gouge". Hit it 360 left or 400 right and the courses are set up so you can still get up and down. Should hear the cart kids working in our clubhouse talk. These kids couldn't break 90, but can hit it 300 yards... or so they say. It's all about length.

Having a frustratingly similar conversation/argument with my FIL of course. He’s 67 years old with two surgically repaired knees and one shoulder. But just won’t shake this belief that he hits an 8i over 150yds. Even tho I’ve proven it to him, with my launch monitor more than once now, that he does not!! He also seems to think the monitor recorded his swing speed at 90mph... it was in fact a 90 yard shot, with his 8i!!!!

As much as I love my in-laws, it really just reminds me, you cant fix stupid! If he doesn’t want to, or won’t listen. I can’t help!!
