    My best friend has some mp-62s I think and he loves them, but I wanted second opinions lol.

    I wanted to play my club's annual 4-ball, but I had to work the tourney instead. I played a bad round yesterday morning shooting an 85 with a triple bogey and no birdies. I am having ball striking problems with my irons. I hit 10/13 fairways and never had more than a 6-iron into the greens on the par 4s except for the hole I tripled.

    I figured, I can't really tell the difference between the 2012 and 2013 versions except for the print on the ball :lol:

    Had to get shovel out, so yeah I suppose so. :p

    Pretty good bet he could. :tup:

    Man it's been painful Stotty seeing him come up so close so many times. Hopefully he can pull it off today, would be a popular win that's for sure if he can. :tup:

    Great final round.

    Thought Bubba was really solid after his dropped shot. He hits some crazy shots though - The drive on 13 was amazing and his shot out of the trees in to 15 was just hilarious.

    He's certainly a character :)

    What's even more impressive is that Bubba is self taught. Each of his swings is different. Same way with Miguel Angel Jimenez if I'm not mistaken

    In case anyone cares about video game golf, EA's new PGA title will no longer have Tiger Woods (something that we have all known for a while). They just announced this year's title to be Rory McIlroy PGA Tour.

    I personally think that McIlroy is a good choice in replacing Tiger as the face of the franchise, however what is not known is that is this going to be for a set term or are they going to alternate from year to year.

    They should go the Madden route. Find someone whose name makes everyone think about golf (Jack Ncklaus?) or just go with PGA Tour, then change faces year to year.

    Not a Rory fan at all, but he deserves it

    I think that for the last year and a half, it has been Rory that has achieved that. That being said, alternating the cover athlete/title from year to year would certainly do the franchise some good, especially considering the fact that EA has attempted this approach the last few Tiger games. It would be a pretty much straight forward cut and paste job from here on out.

    I was wrong about Tiger, I must have heard commentators speaking of last year in the background or something. :O

    Shame this weekend I'm filled with finishing assignments but I can tell the Masters is shaking up to be an absolute thriller.
