Sony Open

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Fairly Decent field for the Sony Open this year. Sucks that its in Hawaii in terms of watching it for me as its ridiculously late at night but imma be watching anyways.

 

Imma stick with my guy and hope that AK can build on the ok-ish start he made to the year at Kapalua and get it done here (i say ok-ish rather than decent, he had 2 good rounds and 2 average ones)

Judging from the weather forecast, they might have trouble getting the tournament in.  Calling for rain every day through the weekend.

Damnit!  I was really looking forward to killing time at work today following the scores.  I'm doing fantasy golf for the first time ever and this is our first week.  My starting squad of Furyk, Steve Marino, Jerry Kelly, Charlie Wi, Kevin Na, and Kevin Chappell are ready to kill it!

Tough weather here. It's funny though coming from NY. They call puddles floods here. You should not be golfing today because you'll wreck the course but usually it doesn't rain on that side of the island EVER. It rains in the mountains almost every day but very rare Hawaii Kai gets rain like this. It's a pretty standard rain most mainland people (besides AZ and texas) would be familiar with. Here theyre treating it like the end of the world. It stopped at like 9 and drizzled some since then but I walked to lunch. I'm about 5 miles from Waialae.

Appleby interview , he is gaming the 2 ball putter he bought in the pro shop last week after his "59" putter went missing. He said it was good enuff to shoot 8 birdies with last week, good enuff to give him the lead today.

Who needs a limited edition custom built tour putter ? Apparently not steve. LOL

That is pretty ballzy to leave your fav stick out of the bag and go with a off the shelf setup and come out on day one in the lead.

He hasn't kept things going today, and that happened last week as well.  If he can find some consistency, he will be tough to beat.  That's definitely an "if" though.

 

Charles Howell III started his season with a 68.  I still haven't figured out what he loves about this course, but he is almost a guaranteed top-five finish at Sony.  I'm hoping he keeps it up and gets another high finish this year as well.  He is off to a solid start.  Another name that keeps sticking out is Matt Kuchar.  He is turning into Mr. Consistency on the PGA Tour.

AK off to a good start again today, lets hope that he can capitalise on it this time and carry it on

In a thread about slow play on the Tour a month or so ago, I wondered how well players would do if the U.S. Open still had a 36-hole final day. We're going to see how today.

 

There is a 36-hole final in the Sony, and each group has 4:30 between 3rd-round and 4th-round tee times. http://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/r006/tee-times.html

 

Neither Ben Crane nor Sean O'Hair are in the field, so this might work out. Rory Sabbatini must be in hog heaven.

 

Like in the old Open, the order of play in the 4th round is based on 2nd-round scores. We could well have the winner come from a group that finishes an hour ahead of everybody else. Back in the day, "leader in the clubhouse" actually meant something. It could today, too.

 

This should be fun.

Congrats Mark Wilson, wins by 2 over Tim Clark and Steve Marino

Anybody see that shot by Steve Marino where he was standing in a bunker, hit a 3 wood like a baseball swing and got on the green in 2 on a par 5. That was a hell of a shot.
