    Sounds like you don't dream of any golf courses unless they are on the US open rotation or are called St Andrews. To me that demonstrates an extremely shallow and parochial knowledge of the great golf courses of the world.

    I grew up on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, the greatest strip of golfing country in the world, rivalled only by the north shore of the Firth of Forth round the east Neuk to St Andrews.

    I'm sure this is a foriegn language to you but you should be sorry that you don't dream of playing the local courses of East Lothian and Fife. If you had ever heard of them that is.


    Dude, you're AWESOME.

    Quoted for truth. Your knowledge of golf courses impresses everyone.

    As it should boys, as it should.

    Any fool can reel off a list of courses they saw Tiger win on in a major. Takes a bit of actual knowledge to get really into it. His list was like only having Armani and Boss in your wardrobe. Nice, but overhyped and overpriced and the quality does not always match the reputation.

    My top 10 might have a little of the Armani types but would also have some Kiton and Oxxford, long standing classics that most people have never heard of, plus a couple of bespoke courses that your average Golf Channel jerk will never hear of. Too busy spending $600 on a new driver each year when he really ought to take a putting lesson.

    He made a dumb post and I called him on it. Just the same as he would get called if he, I don't know, said we should wear brown belts and black shoes.

    Deal with it.

    It's fun, but probably far overrated. The game is so sloooooow.

    Umm actually grass is the fastest surface in tennis... want to take a wild guess why players like Sampras, Ivanovic, and Roddick are successful here?

    I'd like to have a great mentor, and end up living somewhere in Switzerland (maybe Geneva or Sion) or perhaps Monaco. Somewhere in Spain would be nice.

    We can all sleep just a little sounder knowing you are on the job monitoring the "imaginativeness" of fellow board members golf course choices. A mans got to do what a mans got to do. Right Gmac?

    I would think that a list of what an individual wants to do before he dies is a fairly personal thing, thus perhaps exempt from being called a "dumb post". If the one thing on his list to do before he died was wear a brown belt with black shoes I would tell him to go for it.

    Sometimes a dumb post is better than a cantankerous one.

    Well, I don't know if I would go that far. However, anyone, including you, who has an interest in playing the world's greatest golf courses has learned something today (or at least those who didn't already know the information I passed along).

    No need to thank me.

    If your intention was simply to play a number of US courses that you had heard of on the Golf Channel or Sportscentre because Tiger won something there, then I'm sorry for wasting your time.

    Just to watch him die? Or perhaps for another reason? Maybe for playing on too many pedestrian golf courses?

    That's not a capital offence.

    A long prison term would suffice in most cases.

    Brilliant thread revival! [​IMG]

    What an asshole that gmac was. He's probably the one I've gotten into the most e-arguments with here and AAAC. Glad he didn't last long.
