Nice win, Tiger.  But seriously?

77 PGA Tour wins? 8 times at Bay Hill alone?  8? 

That’s an insane PGA Tour CAREER for most players, but you had to do it on one course.  

That’s about all we need to say.  

Good job holding off Rickie, if he was even in your rear view.  That orange is pretty distracting.  

Oh, you should probably try the new R1 before Augusta.  14 fairways.  Think about it.

How many times have you checked in your golf clubs with an airline due to the enticement of vacation golf?  Now, how many times have you received your clubs only to find your precious Scotty Cameron to have a new idiot mark on it that you didn’t put there?  JK and I have had that experience all too often.  In fact, JK used to carry a special travel putter just so his gamer wouldn’t get nicked by TSA.

Well, JK, TSA now agrees with us that this is ridiculous.  Beginning April 25, passengers on U.S. flights will be allowed to carry on — among other things — up to two golf clubs.  This marks a huge win for reticent golfer who would have rather rented “clubs” at the course than check or ship his own.  There are obviously 12 more reasons to keep fighting, but for now, we have two reasons to be very excited.  Also, please be advised, this rule does not appear to apply to international flights.  Those of you traveling abroad for your golf will still have to check the Big Dog and Lola.

I am also particularly excited because TSA will now allow me to to carry on include pool cues!  If you think golfers are anal about their equipment, go talk to a pool junkie.  Also, for you knife enthusiasts, you can carry on a retractable blades shorter than 6 centimeters (2.36 inches) and narrower than 1/2 inch.  Why the two different metrics, you ask?  I guess TSA really just wants to use both sides of that ruler.  Enjoy!

Dear Readership,

We apologize for our months long delay in posting.  We have had numerous personal and professional issues between the two of us that have prevented us from being as active as we would like to be with the PF.  Whether it was traveling more weeks than not or changing jobs, we have simply not had the time to commit to the blog that we would like.  Like our friend Rory, we have not been in the best place mentally to give the PF our best.  But like Rory, we recommit to providing you with course reviews, equipment reviews, and technical know-how to improve your own game and golf experience.  Please stay tuned for new reviews and tips!

Thanks for sticking with us.
