2014 WGC Bridgestone Invitational Discussion Thread

250 posts in this topic

The Bridgestone World Championship is this week in Akron.  An interesting tweet by Will Gray of the Golf Channel.

"If neither wins this week in Akron, Monday will be first day since Jan. 21, 1995 that neither Tiger nor Phil holds a current PGA Tour title."

That is a pretty impressive statistic to how consistent those two guys have been.  Almost twenty years since neither is a defender of a tournament title.

That is a pretty amazing stat. I don't see either winning this week, either. From those who watched Tiger today, word is his driver was all over the place.

Put a few bucks on Adam Scott this week. Hoping he can win this for a 2nd time (9th time for Stevie).

Tiger won it last year with Joey so it would be 8 for Stevie

Love the WGC's. I like Fabrizio Zanotti at 300-1 odds.

Love this course. Probably will never play it... Anyways, I don't really have high hopes for Tigs. He's got more inner conflict with that driver than Rosie O'Donnell at A Weight Watchers seminar...

Looking forward to it. My personal favorite Joost Luiten going in early in a flight with Fernandez-Castano I see. Would love to play on this course myself once, but that will probably never happen...

Good drivers win this tournament. Dont think Tiger stands much of a chance this week. I like Scott or Furyk to win this bad boy.

I should not have passed up the tickets that I was offered to attend this year. It's only about 15 minutes away from me and I haven't even gone once (lived here all of my life too). I think I'll go next year for sure.

Patrick Reed with a flying start: 3 birdies on the first 4 holes.

I remember following Jack around one year at Firestone, like in the late 70s - I grew up about 20 minutes away. Followed him the whole round. He shot a 68 with birdies on the two par 5s (2nd & 16th) and 16 pars. Don't think he missed a fairway or green (he likely did I just don't remember it). He was just machine-like, workman-like.

Firestone is just a straightforward VERY long HIGH rough NARROW fairway classic course. I think that's why the pros love it so much. No trickiness. Just hit the shots.

So… Tiger was a good driver eight times before?

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

      thanks. I'm doing that so I might do some horse trading.
    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
