The Australian Masters is on right now on the golf channel with defending champion Adam Scott tied for the lead and in the clubhouse already.

Notable players that I've seen so far are

ADAM SCOTT
BRENDON DE JONGE

MATT KUCHAR

VIJAY SINGH

other than that, the field is mainly unfamiliar (to me) Australians. Still fun golf to watch!

Jamie Donaldson is becoming one of my favorite players to watch.

I still want G Mac to win the whole thing though.

My guess is that Henrik Stenson will win it all though. It's his home turf.

I think I much prefer Euro tour commentary than that of the US, just straight golf...report whats being seen, no side stories. However, the on-course reporting of Maltbie, et al is always good, but the desk "analysts" always leave me wondering why I watch the golf channel.

Absolutely agree.

Speaking of commentary, I haven't heard Feherty in a LONG time, what's he been up to?

Good to see Jared Lyle back at the Aussie Masters

http://www.golfchannel.com/news/rex-hoggard/lyle-cards-emotional-72-aussie-masters-return/

Quote:

“The hardest part is over,” smiled Lyle, referring to his opening tee shot which was made even more difficult through tears. “It was everything I thought it was going to be. I was standing there ready to go and then I heard Lusi and I had to give her one last kiss. It was the best part.”

Lyle was informed by doctors in 2012 that the leukemia had returned just days before Lusi, his first child, was due and he postponed chemotherapy treatments until after her birth so he could hold her.

I appreciate the fans at the European events, mainly how there aren't any clowns yelling "mashed potato" or anything like that. They seem to be there to watch golf and not to try to make statements that will get on TV.

Couldn't agree more

The commentary is good over here in the UK and you'll get less adverts as well.

Stenson is on the charge and backing him to win this. Good to see Rory up there as well and a lot of other Brits!

Adam Scott once again goes into the clubhouse tied for the lead...9 under at Royal Melbourne after round 2.

I suppose that if Henrik is good enough to win the FedEx Cup then he's good enough to win the Race to Dubai. It's just that you wouldn't expect that level of performance from anyone outside of Tiger in his prime. No one has managed to win both in the same year, so we'll see if Stenson has it in him. That 287 yard 3i that rolls up to 5 feet was awesome.

After 3 rounds Stenson at -17, Victor Dub at -16, and Poulter at -13. Amazingly Jimenez (age 48) is sneaking around at -12.   And to refresh everyone's memory, Jimenez (hopefully) will be defending his title at the Hong Kong Open soon.  And not a few months back he broke his leg on the ski slopes. That's what happens when the male body is lean and fit; fast recovery, youthful stamina and the libido of a goat.

Adam Scott has a big lead in Australia over Matt Kuchar, Vijay Singh, and a bunch of guys with chronic sunburns who all look vaguely alike. Also of note, the Australian Masters' title sponsor has changed from a wealth-management company to a brand of Scotch whisky. I approve of this move.

Oops, not now. A double bogey while Kuch was simultaneously birdie-ing the next hole took care of that. ;) P.S. I love that I can sit here at 9pm local time and watch "tomorrow's" golf tournament AND I'm also watching a live football game from this afternoon in Hawaii. :)

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      Played 9 holes today and started out pretty good (for me) w/ 5 bogies in a row, then doubled the last four. Still, not a bad round.  
    • Anyone Else Use 'Good Shots' to Measure How Good a Round Was?
      This is what I do as well.  If I play a poor round then there are a lot of these, so I don't really dwell too much, but if I played a good round, then it frequently boiled down to a couple of really good to great shots, a whole bunch of manageable ones, and a couple awful ones.  The awful ones are the ones I feel should be entirely avoidable, so those are the ones I try and recount later and assess what went wrong.
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      I have been working with an Evolvr coach for a while and he has not addressed those concerns at a2 and in fact called my position a perfect example and something he would show to other students.  So your instructions do not match up for me.   It is frustrating to hear you make comments like that when they don't match up with what my coach says.   I still don't get why it matters if it goes from shallow to slightly steeper on the downswing.   Look at Furyks swing, is he hitting all the key positions?  If I hit A5 to A6 why does A3 matter anymore? If Robert Rock had the same angle at 5 as he does at 3 he would miss the ball too..  What is the difference in steep to shallow?  OR shallow to steep, but still outside the ball?  
    • Anyone Else Use 'Good Shots' to Measure How Good a Round Was?
      No because it's pretty rare I hit a really good shot. Many are happy accidents. Good is relative to par for me. If I gave myself a chance it's a decent shot. But most don't end up as I conceived it in my mind and I know that in my planning that it's a big target. I think in certain areas, miss right to get up and down if I know going for the green brings trouble into play. If it ends up right of the green and leaves me a pitch uphill it's good whether I hit it to my number for that club or chunk it 15 yards short.
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      @pumaAttack I didn't tell you to "model" your swing after Ko's, I was giving you an example of someone that is doing the opposite of what you're doing. Face looking "down" at 2, standing the shaft up at 3, this will make the shallowing move a lot more natural.  Exactly, you have to consider the entire motion. When the swing goes "shallow to steep" consistency is going to be hard to achieve because of the compensations you have to make with the sweetspot. Yes at 6 you may be pointing the shaft outside the ball but it's also steeper than you were at 3, these things matter. If you had the same shaft alignment at 5 that you do at 3 you'd miss the ball, so you in order to make contact you have to steepen the shaft. While the shaft is still outside the ball at 5 the sweetspot is going to move differently than if you were "steep to shallow". @pumaAttack I wasn't aware that you were still on Evolvr or that they had already made recommendations, I'm sure your instructor has mentioned the backswing and that it's part of their gameplan to address it. I was just trying to help, you mentioned you are trying to shallow the shaft on the downswing, I saw where you were on the downswing so I figured I'd post.
