TPiRecap: 27 March 2015

Just a heads-up in advance: I will be taking Monday off for a personal day, and possibly Tuesday as well; I expect to have a recap up on Tuesday, but I might not be able to. This will be an extremely busy weekend for me personally, and I'll need at least one full day to recover from it before I'm good to go again. So Monday will be an off day, at the very least, and I recommend you to the usual excellent sources (Roadgeek Adam's G-R thread, Qwizx.com) to get your fix on that day.

And so...

The Fudge Rule only applies to the $10,000 slip, though five grand certainly isn't anything to sneeze at in the grand scheme of things. Hey, I'd take it if that's all I ended up with. ^^;

I was seriously about ready to throw my TV out the window when I saw him dawdling on the second try, but you just can't argue with success...

That's some awfully expensive Chapstick clone...

Drew's Inspiration Putt:
He really is getting better at this... of course, he's had about seven seasons worth of practice now, too.

Margaret's First Putt:
Just off-center. >_<

Margaret's Second Putt:
An admittedly unusual putting grip.. but it goes in, so how can it possibly be wrong?
WIN!

Maybe the PGA wouldn't allow that stance, but it's all good in Studio 33!
