Your ability to detect my mood through text over the internet is wildly erroneous.

Don't bother lol. I just find it curious and somewhat amusing why you just can't call people out on their BS and obsessively make excuses for them.

He looks leaner too as a result of (I'm guessing) not being able to work out. Much more like he did in the Bahamas than he did at Torrey Pines/Dubai. When I was watching it this morning I was a little bit concerned he was going to throw his back out when I saw him fist pump though...

Def, there are some pics and even a video of him walking along. Still a bit stiff looking shoulder wise, but compared to Dubai it's like apples and oranges.

What I don't understand is why its such a big deal.

Its probably not Adam Scott, who he claims to be, but whoever this person is, they have some sources, and get some info right. They know something. I don't care who they are, and having listened to that interview, I don't know why those people felt they needed to try to out this person. They didn't even reveal anything. They talked in code for like 45 minutes, and revealed nearly no info. For all we know, they could've been the ones making it up for some reason. Thats not to say I think they were, but I just don't get why this matters. I've seen a lot of speculation that this person might be on the team of one of the golfer's this person pretends to be. I really don't know nor care who it is exactly. I like reading "secret" info on pro golf. Not all the info is true, and I think everyone who reads their work realizes it. Doesn't matter, I'll take 25% accuracy, if it uncovers some interesting info.

Going to leave the topic alone after this post.

It is your prerogative if you want to believe that this person's information is legitimate and comes from the position of being an inside source on the tour. It is mine to question somebody's integrity who uses a social media platform to dupe others (and there have been real world implications for those deceived by him) into believing the persona he's created while pretending to be somebody who he isn't. I also find certain golf publications giving his musings credence ethically questionable. Stealing others photos and passing them off as his own is something a pathological liar does and, to me, is more than proof enough he isn't who he says he is while at the same time discrediting him entirely.

Slowest player on tour should've been a Spieth runaway.

When Kevin Na had the takeaway yips, he still played faster than Spieth.

Funny how two of the four slowest, Spieth and Day, are probably the two best course managers in the sport. Amazing how if you take your time, you'll gain shots on the field.

They should've added a worst green reader category for Dogge. His boy would've led at least one category.

I do remember what you are thinking of with Na. He had the lead at the Players, and was unable to take the club back. It was almost comical.
