It looks like a useful tool but I bet it could be improved by coupling the beep with an electric shock. That would make the learning process much quicker. Would it be legal for play under USGA rules?

    Good looking swing but holy crap are those dreads I see peeking out from under your cap?

    Also how does a homeless, unemployed loser afford all those nice threads, shoes and a modern looking driver.

    What do you think Larry? Did Alan crawl out of his basement and mug somebody on the golf course?
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    Nah. I just don't mind letting the hair grow from time to time.

    Psssssssh. Those aren't even the good threads. I save those for the private courses.

    Thanks! The shaft says TaylorMade M.A.S^2 7-65, but from what I've read, there's some suggestion that the actual manufacturer was Fujikura. I might have to look into a different shaft and/or driver at some point because I'm not getting much roll on my drives.

    As for Larry, yeah...

    ...I could take all the woods out of the bag and still kick his butt.

    Hmm.....I'm comparing Larry's swing to Alan's current. It's close. Velocity is almost the same, athleticism also about the same. It's kind of a toss-up really.

    The thing is, with Larry's swing, I can picture him playing at a high level in many other sports. Not trying to be negative, Alan, your swing looks great too.

    About 250 on that particular drive, but I'm hitting the ball high and hitting into an upslope, so I got almost no roll.

    Let me get my trajectory down a little and when I hit into a level fairway, I'll be hitting about 265 - 285.

    Alan, is that an actual 265-285 or an internet 265-285? Because this is the internet, I'll assume internet.

    Sorry to disappoint you, Lorenzo, but that is actual.

    Alan, what is it that gives you such a strong moral compass and makes you so invulnerable to normal human temptation?

    That's pretty close!! I think Alan would need to put on a few pounds to truly impersonate Hoffman.

    I can't believe noone has figured out what really happened with the Taser incident. Well...then I guess I should explain it. The spectator standing close is actually the perpetrator. His goal was to get his friend Tasered. As the cops were coming over, he switched shirts with the poor guy. The shorts and expression on his face are giveaways.

    The guy that got Tasered did nothing wrong, he was just quietly watching golf.

    Oh, . . . I get it . . . . . . kind of like farting in a crowded elevator and moving to the other side immediately while looking disgustingly at your buddy who was standing next to you.

    Right. If one consitently gets away with the farting, it leads to something like this.

    FD, it could be. And one of the cops is actually JB Holmes. The other is Ian Poulter. They don't like it noisy.

    So farting is a "gateway" behavior?

    I used to light farts in college. Try it, it works and its great fun. To be safe I would recommend wearing jeans (the gas easily comes through the denim and the material is slow to ignite). High pressure farts are far safer than a slow oozing fart. I saw a guy char his shirt because the gas just kept coming out.

    My older cousin who graduated from Caltech in the '50's taught me to light them. I think it was taught in an elective course there. It is amazing how they will burn in different colors depending on what you have eaten recently. I've gotten everything from bright orange like Napalm to a silvery blue glow that shimmered like distant lightning in the fog.

    Youtube is clogged up with videos of idiots lighting farts.. and many are drunk and set themselves on fire.

    Great fun. :-)
