The software for that tee accelerometer keeps calculating a hole-in-one. The wind simulation code must be buggy.

Mark, this brings to mind an off-topic episode of a similar nature. Long ago my TV Sales-and-Service boss was called to a customer's home to inspect a fracture of the CRT screen of a brand new TV set. He remarked that it looked very much like a foreign object had been propelled at the screen and thus was not covered by warranty. Later the customer interrogated his kids. They finally admitted that yes they had been playing hockey in the living room using glass marbles for pucks. Your caption brought that memory back.

Even though Peter the Pro had unprecedented gains in driving distance, the competition committee analysts found that even addressing the ball backwards...with his heels rather than toes...did little to impact ball flight, velocity, or accuracy.

LAB PERSON #1: Since that simulation involved an adaptive DFE, it initialized before the data collection process started LAB PERSON #2: Yep, that's the traditional way of presenting time-domain simulation output LAB PERSON #1: And the eye diagram was color-coded to show the probabilities associated with the signal's location within the eye GOLFER: Dead center in the eye! LAB PERSON #2: I'd say there's probably a better way to deal with time-domain results
