Is this Twitter? I'm sitting in bed hammering down quarter pounders and the grease on my phone is making it tough to see which social media platform I'm currently using to Make America Great Again. Ok it's Twitter. Here goes: "Build the wall out of the corpses of Mexican kids we 'accidentally' starve after we tear them away from their immigrant parents." Yee Haw!!

I thought he was playing in Phoenix but he didn't. I might as well have picked him instead of all the bums I did pick that missed the cut.

Anyone got a big enough sack to pick Tiger in the first week?

Unfortunately The DeChambeau did not turn pro until after The Masters. He wouldn't have been eligible to play if he were a pro, since the U.S. Amateur champ has to still be an Am to use his Masters exemption. He got a nice trophy, but alas no cash. The $112k he would have won if he had been a pro (and in some other way eligible to play) would have moved Andrew up a couple spots in the Pool standings, but it wouldn't have been enough to move Mike M. into 1st place. I think he's a good pick for the Heritage this week, though. And he will be a pro.

Lesson: don't pick amateurs in the Rule 20-6 Golf Pool. They don't win cash, no matter how well they play.

I object to the claims that a Bryson pick is a useless one. He is turning pro the minute the last putt drops on Sunday (I'm predicting a made cut). And will therefore collect his check at the same time as the other competitors. If he wins, he will collect 1.7m or whatever it is and if he's last he shall gather $20,000. Either way he is getting paid just like every other player who will make the cut. He declared his intentions a few months ago and thus will be paid in US Dollars. I'm calling a top 5

The rule additions passed with nine yes votes, four apparently abstaining. The new rules have been added to the Rules of Play. I'll try to think of all these possible situations in the off-season so I won't have to bother you all with this administrative crap next season.

Please vote on a proposed addition to the Rules of Play. Everything is spelled out on the "This Week's Poll" page, under the "Diversions" tab on the main menu. You can also get there from a link on your Players Page.

having bubba as my unique and my tourney hopes riding on him i began to gag with every shot as he did. his swing was out of rythym, feet off the ground, balls flying into areas that the grounds crew has not seen in years. almost reminded me of my high school golf days. the last time i saw such a pathetic look of defeat was in a poker game years ago when my opponent bet his K5 chevy blazer on 4 dueces only to be bested by my 4 kings. well at least big bubba didnt break down and cry. he also got paid which is more than i can say for myself. stats dont lie bubba now 1 for 7 when leading on saturday. see you all next tourney.

Tough call there. Gump is a machine-type golfer, same nut-crunching swing every time, just like on the range. No need to have to think. Bubba probably also hits his shots on the course just like on the range, but because he can't focus on anything more than 3 seconds, every shot on the range is different, as on the course. Not capable of thinking. But the deciding factor: his name is Bubba. Gotta go with the guy named Bubba.

That is exactly what he's got. See holes #7 & #8 Sunday at Pebble Beach. A hooded yank left, then next hole he twitched the face open and missed right. He's too much in the fingers with his grip, but mainly it's in his head as the yips always are. He's fucked until he calls Steve L. for a long putter lesson.

You may have noticed a few "boner medicine" ads on here lately. I just deleted about 40 of them. The evil robots that roam the internet think this is a message board (which I guess it is) and when those things find one they post their worthless advertisements. Links won't work on here, which makes them very obnoxious to look out. Unfortunately they will continue to show up from time to time, unless I incorporate a captia when entering posts. I will try to delete them when they appear. Sorry.

I took two weeks off to prepare for Augusta. Although after Round 2 many counted me out, my long putter and I never gave up, never lost faith. Preparation is the key to majors, that and dumping the last two letters of your first name.

I demand money, and lots of it, for the use of my name in your "Tiger May Care" pool. And I will have you know I DO care, especially when it involves money. Such a blatant misuse of my good name will require serious remuneration, seven figures at least. I expect a check within the week or I'll have to turn Stevie loose on your sorry asses.

I wrote and put up this Wall or "message board" pretty much just to see if I could. Use it however you want.

It's pretty simple. You must type something in both boxes or you will get a pop-up error message. After you have a name and message entered and click the post button, a pop-up with what you typed will appear. Click ok to post it or cancel to edit. Once ok is clicked in the confirm box there are no takebacks. It will show up on the page.

I don't care if the posts are golf or pool related or not. Pretty much anything goes. You don't even have to use your real name. Let's avoid personal attacks against other pool players, but personal attacks against golfers are encouraged and I'll be disappointed if I don't see any.

I'll probably check this just about every time I'm on the site, so if you have a question or comment and don't feel like emailing it, leave it here.

If you experience any problems with this page, please let me know so I can fix it. Thanks.

Have fun.
