Amana - $85 for golf for two with lunch and drinks.

Postby jnecessary » Mon Aug 13, 2012 7:26 am

Amana is on the 'here's the deal' website for the next few days.

The deal gets you 18 holes, cart, lunch and beers. $45 for one person or $85 for two. Seems like a pretty good deal to play what a bunch of people say is one of the best around.

Anyone thinking about picking one up? I might if I can talk Aaron into it after his 'excellent' play up at Hillcrest in Mt. Vernon. Thought he may have sworn off ball golf for a while.

Here's a link that saves me 10 bucks if you get one.

Ryder Cup

Postby Carter45145 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 1:45 pm

Who will be the last four selected for the Ryder Cup team? I think it's pretty obvious that Stricker is in. I thought Furyk was in for sure until he missed the cut last week. Rickie is good in match play and would help the team. Should be fun golf to watch this weekend. Look forward to seeing who plays their way in.

Im hoping dustin johnson is the 4th along with the 3 u mentioned. He missed some tournaments this year with a back injury, but been solid since coming back.

I just hope Tiger gets his weekend mojo back, his saturday and sunday rounds are hard to watch. My only knock on tiger is he never used to play great till the weekend and would still win. The last few tournaments its been the total opposite. Chuckn wives and children will ruin a mans golf game. Imo the poor guy has to fly to sweden just to see kids.
I have inside jokes with strangers.

I used to watch golf to see what Tiger would pull out of his bag of tricks to win. It was like magic. I was really hoping he would someday surpass Nicklaus. Then the curtain was pulled back and the real Tiger was revealed.
Now I watch and hope he chokes. Don't have a favorite now.
I don't think the wife and kids were the problem. It was the porn stars and waitresses.

he is the best golfer of all time, always against stronger competition than the old guys had through his whole Carreer . I root for him, golf would have 1/2 the fans it does now without him , his personal life really is nobodys business, and other than financially his relationships are borderline normal for the world today anyway. Can't wait for his game to come full circle and start dominating again rite in all the haters eyeball's !! Yesssssss war tiger, way cashing on the east side of iowa ssssss
live laugh love blow me

Best golfer of all time? Jury's still out.
Stronger competition? I don't know.

There is a really strong field of up and comers today. Is Tiger not winning today because there is an abundance of great new golfers who do not fear him?

Rory McIlroy is no Davis Love III.

Tiger still appears to have a lot of skill, but doesn't seem to have that "finish them off" mentality that he once did. Plus the new generation guys are watching the course instead of looking over their shoulders for a red shirt.

Here is a quote from the Boston Herald:
"Yesterday, in the glorious sun of summer’s unofficial last day, he (Tiger) was there again. The problem was The Boy (McIlroy) never noticed The Man.

Once McIlroy passed Oosthuizen on the sixth hole to go 1 shot up, he did what Woods used to do with a regal haughtiness that was maddening to his peers.

He ignored them."


So true.

I do agree that Tiger helped boost golf's popularity. He got me watching. I still watch, I just don't root for Tiger.

Maybe I run in a strange circle, but his personal life is not considered normal by those I know. But then we don't think Charlie Sheen is normal either.

He was the one who put his personal life on display, selling us a squeaky-clean image and raking in millions because of that. Had he marketed himself more as a playboy, and less of a boy scout, his fans might not have been as shocked as they were, and some sponsors might not have dumped him.

Nicklaus' record number of major titles is safe. (from Tiger)

Lets stick to politics Tuffy.


Not happy with the Dustin Johnson or Furyk pick, esp Furyk. Has an atrocious record in the Ryder Cup, and DJ is too big of a pud to have any emotion for an event like this. Despite his poor play recently, Fowler would have been the better pick, and even Watney I believe would find a way to play well.

I'll give you Watney, but Fowler can't putt this season. Match play is won on the greens.
Calmer than you are.

They're playing a banger's course. Dustin is perfect. Fowler blows. Glad he broke through, but he might be the most overhyped golfer since Monty.

Here's the deal with Tiger. Every tournament here recently has literally come down to one big putt that the rest of the field would've heard from anywhere on the course....but he missed it. That putt falling would change the entire dynamic of the tournament. The fact is Tiger is hitting more fairways and greens than ever before. He's 2 putts away from dominating again. Don't know if he'll find it or not, but he's SO much closer than people are giving him credit for. Anyone notice he's been in contention nearly every tournament at one point or another? Find me one other golfer that's been anywhere near as consistent.

Dustin Johnson played his way onto the team the past few weeks. I would have loved to see Rickie (or Hunter Mahan) on the team but he is not playing well right now. I don't blame Davis Love for not taking him.

The only pick I am unsure about is Furyk. He's getting old and has seemed to look weak a number of times on the course this year. His Ryder cup record might not be good but he did go 5-0 in the Presidents Cup last year.

I like the team we have.

Nothin' that can't be cured with a few pints of 5 Hour Energy, I'm sure. :)
