Probably shouldn't be lobbing our names and addresses out over the forum. Click on a screen name and choose send PM.   Identity theft gentlemen.
With two rounds left I think anyone at +1 or +2 still has a chance.  None of the top ten have really contended in a major before.  You have to like Stevie's chances; after all, he is the last caddy to win a PGA after winning the week before.
Colleges are spending big money on sports to run their almost major league programs.  The competition makes players train every day all year rather than focusing on school.  But I know a lot of the players are going to school specifically to get the course time, practice and instruction and see if they can be good enough to make the tour.   I also don't see the utility of the word "amateur".  If we're discussing the amateurs that participate in pro tournaments, but...
I always remember this course looking easy and agree with the suggestion that the fairways look huge on tv.  The grass is always in great shape, too.    It is totally unwarranted, but I get the feeling I could play great golf there.  Even though I have no history of this whatsoever.  Trick is that the short game would definitely be the tough part for a hack in a tour event.    ETA: Atlanta Athletic Club looks tough.  The contrast is huge from last week to this...
But this is a tip of over 50% for driving up and handing you two drinks.  Even including the driving and waiting for you to hit, that's a quick $4 for 10 minutes of very light work, plus the $2 per hour wage.      This is brilliant.  I get what you're saying about supporting the service, but gosh isn't cold beer a priority for some people.  Nine holes is only going to take 2 hours, and then you're back at the clubhouse.  If you tee off with a beer in hand I'm not seeing...
I think you should try to hit it as far as possible off the tee, then as high as possible onto the green.  I suppose the number on the club doesn't matter but it is an advantage to have the ball dropping down and staying put on the putting surface.  You get this with the lofted irons.    Tiger could do this with a 2-iron when he needed to.  I just saw Mickelson describing a hole at the Buick Open where he needed 3-wood to reach in two, but could never hold the green,...
+1   I feel like I have seen this hundreds of times.  WTF do these old fat guys need to stand around and chat this girl up for.  She is trying to be nice for the tips and they use her as a captive audience for their bad jokes or bull.  I can't believe how many guys sit there at a restaurant like "dude, think the waitress likes me / likes you?"  The answer to this is always no, man, she is working for tips.  These women don't need to be hit on constantly, I'm sure it gets...
  And then there is Marisa Tomei's Core and Curves.  The GF tried this and I noticed it would be great as a light routine for golf core strength and balance.  It is mostly for chicks, but as a taller man, the balance exercises are tougher than for women.  I won't do the skipping parts though.
I read somewhere that Harrington had this done, taking pains to make a hybrid just like an iron, but with the clubhead.  It enables you to swing like an iron, but utilize the lower COG and mass of the larger head.    I have a stock nike slingshot, and a major tendency to hook my 20 degree hybrid.  Problem was I just threw it in the bag and found it easy to hit.  After the honeymoon, I realized it was going too frequently left, unless I really paid attention to it.  It has...
Water is exactly what you need.  As mentioned, a banana can be helpful.  I also think apples, almonds or walnuts make an ideal snack.   One concern with diet soda should be the phosphoric acid and caffeine that are leaching the calcium from your bones.  Especially older folks need to be mindful of this.  Of course there's lots of toxins in sodas generally and the whole basket may slow your kidneys.
