Cant say I’m a huge fan of the new virtual cockpit, but it’s pretty cool to have the nav display right in front of the driver between the tach and speedo.

At this point I think that's a good move for him. The rest of you chops need to take as many lessons as possible. 8-)

What the hell does that have to do with the 2018 Golf?

I’m not sure if I’m on board with LED headlights just yet. Sure, they’re less of a power draw and don’t have the ballast longevity issues of xenon lamps, but they just don’t have the lux and lumens you get from a set of xenon HIDs.

Love the xenons in my 2016.

IMO, best young group of golfers on the tour since the Nicklaus/Palmer/Player/Watson/Trevino/Weiskopf era.

If you’re including Weiskopf don’t you have to include Miller?

It’s certainly not for everyone....

Those who are easily frustrated
Who lack athleticism and balance
Who are impatient
Desire instant gratification
Who under-appreciate the sun on their face and grass under their feet...

Tiger really needs to pretend the fairway is a hooker's asshole, because he wasn't hitting many today.

My dad loves golf...
He and I have been going at it for 40 years about that game
So I've pretty much heard them all

The vast and overwhelming majority of golfers suck at it
and will continue to suck at it the rest of their lives

and that... makes me giggle a little bit

The athleticism and balance thing deterred me from trying golf. I’m fine with the other points.

I'd always hit a show that made me want to get back and try again. I shot a 34 on a par 35 one time, and have tried over and over to get there again. Always close but no cigar.
