    They’re cutting the rough back tonight a bit and then letting it go the rest of the weekend. Also a small chance (25%) of a shower Thursday, but should be dry the rest of the week.

    Get your birdies in on Thursday.

    I see now that it's his coach holding a club, but at first glance I thought his club was 10 feet long.

    Hot take: hitting out of tall rye is not hard.

    It’s the greens that will do these guys in.

    Shot a 79 today at a course called river wilds. It’s in the middle of nowhere. It was from their tips but 1 and Ty Webb would have me mention that it’s only 6500 from thee tips so it doesn’t count.

    I haven’t seen confirmation, but pretty sure it’s bent fairways and rough, with rye sprinkled into the rough to make it denser.

    This is a good read. Players are really going to have to plan their strategy for each hole starting at the green backwards.

    Crazy hypothetical....but what if a really tall man made it to the Tour? Would his driver not be longer than 48 inches?

    I know the world is littered with almost hole in ones but after hanging one on the lip at Sweetens I did this from 180 at Shoal Creek today. Caddie thinks I hit the stick then hit the side of the cup. Finished like 4 feet away.

    Ended up going back to the pga superstore and traded in my CBX 52° for a vokey. Just didn’t like the way it felt in my hands, plus I was hitting it fat way too often

    Looking like 79 and partially cloudy tomorrow, and then mid 60s and somewhat breezy for the rest. No rain.

    Got my new set of cbx-2s in yesterday. Really like them.

    Also, what will having too little loft on my driver do?

    It should keep your ball flight lower. Are you a high ball hitter?

    Yea I know the basic high vs low. Didn't know how it effected spin/distance or anything else.

    higher loft will usually spin a bit more so if you want your drivers to grip even a little you should do the higher loft but usually your driver should just get distance

    Along with what was just said, you can mix up your shaft combo with the head as well; if you have a higher lofted driver and it’s spinning too much, you can go with a low spin/low launch shaft and should see a difference (or vice versa)

    Aside from the typical top players in the world the players I like are

    Xander
    Finau
    Berger
    Scott
    Reed

    Everyone is going to miss fairways and have to scramble for pars and those guys all strong there. Of the top players I'll take Rahm

    It’s worth playing once, not as nice as I had expected. I’m glad I played it with a regular a couple for like 3/4 holes I’d have played them wrong. Some weird tee boxes(one next to a utility shed). I’d play it again if invited, but not like hey I need a tee time for tomorrow, I’ll just book there.
