Team events are great but it’s is weird that both guys get an official win + status
would rather it be a crossover event where they teamed with LPGA players
That'd be a great event
From a betting, DFS perspective...nah. I am un-engaged with this format.
These in-between major spots need to be filled with eye candy courses.
Yeah, this really seems silly. I have nothing against Charlie Hoffman, but he's had a "best score" at one hole through 10 today and is essentially playing an easy course even through 10 (has one eagle and two would have been bogeys that gotten erased because of the format) and yet his team is in really good position because his partner is on fire. Obviously still wayyy early, but to create an event like that where he can get two year status, huge FedEx points, and into all the TOCs and perform like that seems dumb.
Love the PGA Tour Live commentators adopting the Shotgun Start nicknames
I’d go so far as to say most of these mid season TPC courses aren’t fun to watch at all
NLU week in the life with Madelene Sagstrom is pretty cool. I'm always really impressed with their balance and tempo. I'd kill for that level of smooth control in my swing
at least Fred Smith has fun now
Paper tiger is my favorite book. I just reread paper tiger a couple weeks ago as well as ACC Ireland and Scotland anticipating the release of America in May I think. I audible so already have it purchased. Hate the guy who reads Scotland though. I keep tweeting at Coyne to do a course called Japan.
Definitely not one size fits all advice. If you're more confident hitting a higher lofted wedge that's definitely the play
That bunker shot to make the cut was insane
Wolff is having a complete meltdown on the course. Just shanked an iron OB on a par 4 tee shot. Looks miserable...honestly it hurts to watch.
Morikawa right now:
Smith is likely saying the same about Leishman.
Morikawa is a disaster on the green so this pairing was doomed from the start
He hasn’t seemed like himself the last month or two. Watching yesterday I hardly saw him talk to anyone not his caddie and never crack a smile which is very weird for him. Hope he can get through whatever he seems to be battling
Don't tell me this. Have Leish/Smith over Wolf/Morikawa and haven't checked scores lately.
Oh I bet that too. Smith/Leish are +2 today, Wolf/Morikawa +5.
He should fix his swing
It rained all day yesterday, so I’m headed to buy some new shoes before I tee off this afternoon. I’ve been wearing old running shoes for the past couple years, and before that wore only those classic looking foot joys.
Buy whatever is most comfortable
Made it through a monsoon yesterday morning at mid south. Mid Pines solid rain all round long. 11 hours of golf out in the rain was tough but fun I guess.
Tobacco Road was so much fun, though. Not too difficult but so many blind shots and some fun greens.
Really like any of the adidas with the boost soles.
Went with the standard adidas tech. Super basic. All I need though. I suck.
I hope everyone in georgia is playing golf today. This is the best weather day of the year.
Struck it well and scored the worst I could at 86. Great for the handicap headed to member guest in the next month.
Downloaded GolfLogix app before my round to play around with it. Used it on the first green and rolled in a 25-footer. Felt like cheating using the green reading map. Immediately went home and ordered the physical book because I hate having my phone on me when golfing.
Quick question I don’t want to google: how do they determine teams for this last weekend?
They pick each other
Playing Ohoopee Tuesday lunch-Wednesday lunch
Considering where his game is Kiawah might be just a waste of time.
Why has he not been playing? Is he hurt? Or too busy in his personal life?
Going to be an interesting case study when Rick ends up top 8 in the PIP as his world ranking plummets
Falling asleep at Preds games
It's crazy to me just how insane the golf funnel is between the amount of people who play it and the people who are truly successful on tour. The tiers in my head are roughly:
Top 50 - Pretty much set, +$5m in Tour earnings annually and similar sponsorship money, can make every tournament, etc.
Top 51-125 - Still a pretty solid life but not much stability. Always trying to break the top 50, while a bad couple months can get you out of the top 125. Still make ~$500k - $2m a year to hit a ball around
125 - 250ish - Very little stability, constant pressure to go big when you make it in tournaments. Earnings dependent on having a couple great weekends a year so every event is a strain, ~30-45 weeks a year on the road in random events and venues with pressure on every one
251 and Beyond (Thousands?) - Constant fighting into every event, Monday Qualifying, Korn Ferry, going into debt or selling your future earnings to individual sponsors to make it through the tough times unless you have family that bankrolls you - hard to do more than a few years
It would be the equivalent if like in baseball every team had two starters who had +$5m guaranteed contracts, a few starters who felt good they were going to make a couple million that year, and everyone else constantly shuffled up and down between the minors. Good for this guy to experience a moment of it all being worth it for a bit.
It doesn't help that the tour protects their shitty, unmarketable players.
I actually agree with this. Everyone should skip that fucking cesspool
Is that a fucking thing? Wow
Anyone read any replies? He’s going to get in regardless.
Went to the range after work today. Irons were pretty good. Driver was better than last time. Doesn’t feel right swinging it like I do my irons. Dunno if you’re supposed to have the same swing or not.
For some reason I tried a swing with more shoulders than hips, and my knee buckled. Came crashing to the ground. Hasn’t happened in a few years.
Now my knee hurts.
Irons and driver should be different swings and different ball placements. Driver you want the ball further up in your stance, irons more in the middle.
Driver I play off my front foot, stand a little further away, and think I have a little more of an extended backswing.
I’d like to get a lesson just to tighten everything up and fix any issues.
Played Copperhead last wknd at Innisbrook. Still strange they would let anyone play that a few days before the Valspar. Everything was set up and the only restriction was like a 30 yard gap where you couldn’t hit in if your ball was there for the pros landing area on approaches. I think it only affected me twice. Course didn’t seem that tough, but it will be interesting to watch this wknd because typically the winner doesn’t go super low.
resort sucked and the rest of the courses were garbage
