Parlay sitting pretty. Can’t wait to watch in person tomorrow
It's mostly a horses for courses line of thinking than match play. He just plays really well at the course, and the reason why the Stoolies need to understand that he isn't a Ryder Cup player. He isn't some match play wiz, he just likes this course
but but it ain’t no hobby though
Hideki withdrew? damnit wanted to see Max play
Celebrated the WBC too hard
Bad Jordan is back like he never left
My next door neighbor is leaving The Honors as GM and taking the GM job at Winged Foot. He’s pumped with this being their Centennial and with the US Open returning in 2028. His dad, his next door neighbor is GM at Chattanooga G&CC. It’s a family thing ha.
Damnit Rahm, hit 3/4 and would have won $1700
I know he got shit for a lot of years for being on every commercial and not backing it up with wins, but I’m cheering for this Rickie resurgence. Not advancing, but beating Rahm and Mitchell is still a nice wk. Wanted to see him at Augusta. Getting close
I don't understand why there's a two-way tiebreaker. These guys played a match against each other. We know who deserves to go through
What are the tiebreak rules? One group had 3 guys finish with the same amount of points.
No tiebreakers at all. Same points = playoff regardless
On three people it makes sense, on two I don't get it. Make their head-to-head count more
More high stakes golf.
imo this is the last tournament that needs extra synthetic pressure
Sitting with a Meronk 140/1 ticket watching him throw away the group with his easiest shot of the day in the playoff
Didn’t say your opinion was wrong about tiebreak.
Anyone know a site that’s posted tee times for tomorrow for the LPGA drive on? Can’t find it anywhere.
ESPN has it
Looks like a few players are still finishing the second round, but should be available later tonight on ESPN as mentioned by Gaknight or the lpga site.
I really enjoy this event every year. Hate that they are getting rid of it.
Saturday is usually fun and the course is prefect for this.
Don’t really care much for Sunday.
I am currently on a golf trip with a couple of members. Sounds like the majority of members aren’t going to miss him and actually happy to see him go. The assistant that is leaving to go to Merion is the opposite
I get the feeling when around him he’s not much of people person. He’s very quiet and not outgoing or gregarious which is atypical for a person in that position. Also interesting to me is that level of turnover for The Honors. It always appeared from the outside to be extremely insulated from change. I talked to his wife yesterday and she expressed his excitement for leaving while also adding his sometime frustration at the way as GM he was more part of a triumvirate than the head of the snake. His kids were pretty awful so my wife and our kids aren’t super upset (as long as someone worse doesn’t move in).
Apparently the assistant was torn about leaving but it is Merion and he interned there a while back.
Herbert/Rory is entertaining
Pretty salty group into the quarterfinals
That day drive on 3 ha
He’s got to be near the favorite the way he’s playing and with bounces like this
It's still Scottie, but he's #2. He'll be about tied with Rory if Rory wins
I thought that was in though
Hearing horschel talk about how in awe he is watching him hit a golf ball was pretty great.
I had to go into the office today and had the matches on in the background and now I've finished up my work and don't want to drive home and miss this Rory/Xander match.
What a turnaround. Down 3 to up 2 in like 8 holes.
Out of curiosity, and it didn't matter, but why is it 2&1? Did Day concede the match but not the hole?
2 people had Scottie on the ropes today and he’s still alive. That’s the favorite.
Had a little match today. On the front my ball was attracted to every water hazard. 2 down thru 8. 2up after 12. Missed short putts on 13/14 to keep him in it. Lost 15/16. Made 15 footer on 17 to go 1 up and then did it again on 18 to win 1 up.
The most insane pin locations I’ve see. For a normal day of golf. Multiple times balls went just past the pin and off the green on putts.
One good hole today in the skins game. Why is it so hard to be consistent at this game?
I really want a match play major. I know it's blasphemy but it's so much more enjoyable to watch imo
I wouldn't want a match play major but I'd much rather watch the Fed Ex Cup get decided by match play than the current format. Make it the top 8 or even just the Final 4 and you're basically always guaranteed name guys competing for 15 million
Match play is so fun. Need more events with the format, not less. Why is it going away?
We need to make East Lake a cut/match play event.
30 qualify as they do now. Play two stroke rounds without the bullshit giving strokes format. Make a cut.
Remaining 16 play match play.
Cam young has been an absolute buzzsaw
At the Drive On, you could see Nelly Korda's group coming for like 20 minutes. Haha
I think WGC's as a whole are going away, and any event that isn't willing to be flexible and adhere with the elevated event framework is going to be at risk.
Another example, Pebble has no interest in ditching the Pro-Am aspect so we've seen that event continually get diminished.
