2014 Zurich Classic Discussion Thread

23 posts in this topic

After a few weeks on tough courses with high scores, the PGA Tour heads to the Bayou for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans which usually turns into a birdie-fest resulting in plenty of excitement and red numbers.

Also it's the last week to qualify for The Players

Quote:
Several qualifying deadlines for THE PLAYERS Championship fall this week. The top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking and the top 10 in the FedExCup standings at week's end earn spots in THE PLAYERS, which will be held May 8-11 at TPC Sawgrass' PLAYERS Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Any remaining spots in the 145-man PLAYERS Championship field are filled by the highest-ranked players on the FedExCup points list after this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans. If qualification ended today, the tournament estimates there would be four positions open via the FedExCup standings.

The top four players in the FedExCup not yet exempt for THE PLAYERS Championship are No. 14 Will MacKenzie, No. 25 Russell Knox, No. 26 Ryo Ishikawa and No. 42 Brendon Todd. Knox, an alum of nearby Jacksonville University and a Jacksonville Beach resident, is seeking his first PLAYERS start.

I'm sure their idea of an easy course would still be a challenge for me!

Duval shanks a wedge and the announcers are struggling to describe it. "That just fell out of the sky right of the green. He must have mis-hit it." Yeah he mis-hit it. It's called a shank.

I'm really proud of him. :-) He's a birdie machine when he's on.

I saw an interview yesterday where he talked about being in the final group last Saturday with Furyk and being able to hold his on that day. He just needs to figure out that he can play with anybody out there and be a little more confident. This week could be his break through. It's not like he doesn't already have some history of success. he won twice last year on the Web.com tour and he lost in the finals at the US Amateur a few years ago. He followed that up with a second at the Q-school . He might just need a little bit more of a Patrick Reed attitude. (just a little though)

Soon you'll know if Seung-Yul Noh is for real. Has Golf Channel used that homonym yet?!

And he's as boring to watch now as he was when he was #1.

What's with the dolly steps?

My father , who passed at 87 in January, used to say "that guy looks double jointed."

I think he tries so hard to be calm and relaxed that he ends up walking like a zombie.

It's like one of those teens you see walking with their arms down by their sides as if moving your arms when walking is uncool. :-)

He finished T25... good for him.  Nice to see him on a weekend again and getting a good finish.  I hope he plays well enough to earn his card back again.  Would hate to see him walk away from the game.

    • 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Discussion
      Actually, they mentioned today that it's an environmental requirement imposed by the government; local, state or federal, they weren't sure.
    • Steel vs Graphite generic question
      Spin is OK though? I could be flipping a little but I may need work on Key #3 to get that launch down to where it needs to be... Because I SHOULD be carrying my 7-iron 160-165 with that speed.  Maybe the motor is fine (the shaft), just need to work on in-line impact more...
    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
