David Wigler:You should make an exception in the case of Ian Baker Finch being reinstated. If you have less than a 10 handicap your chances of beating him would be about 50/50 at scratch! If you ever do happen to play him remember to stand well behind him when on the tee box!
John Conley:I'm definitely not serious if Ian has finally straightened out his accuracy, particularly off the tee. Some say they just couldn't believe what happened to him--he couldn't hit a 75 yd wide fairway if his life depended on it. I hope he corrected that but if not he was a total mess and not one who could compete well at all in anything. Maybe you never heard about this tragic development. The reason that happened I believe was due to an eye injury but maybe he's done something about that. Ian Baker Finch was one of the truly great guys who ever played the tour in my book!
John Conley:Obviously I'm being facetious saying Ian Finch could not beat a 5 handicapper when he went into such a massive slump (One of these days I'll figure out how to use a smiley face so you'll pick up on my facetiousness).
