Sure, some casual golf shots, which like you and I at the practice range are Terrific shots but where is the competition and personal pride i was led to believe would be on display? OK, better than tennis or motorcars going round and round but me, I'd out to the course myself for a great 18. 

 

Are you joking? Today was incredibly competitive and dare I say intense. Especially the back 9.

I watched the repeat on TGC, and it was good!!!!   and i seriously giggled a bit when DL3 had Sammy the Squirrel in his lap, and then at the end had him in his pocket, and Tiger Woods gets pranked with Sammy the Squirrel...

Watched the coverage on Skysports last night and think it's one of the best day's action of Golf i've seen for a while. Some insanely good shots from both teams!

 

The best shot for me was De Laet's tee shot on 16th I think, where he just lobs it within a couple of feet.. awesome.

Half the time I look at the scoreboard it screws things up. Look at this:

Okay, I'm not going crazy then. This was happening to me also yesterday.

I think they're using JavaScript and it sometimes doesn't fully load or something.

That's no ordinary squirrel.  Just in case they need it on the last hole!

Enjoyed watching the matches today.  Phil and Keegan are a lot of fun to watch, you can tell they really enjoy golfing together.

Interesting to see Phil with the SLDR driver.  The sole is blacked out.  Tiger's swinging really good, nice to see.

I think Price needs to split Grace and Sterne they are rudderless out there. Beat downs aren't interesting. A few are struggling on the US side too.

One of the differences between Prez Cup and Ryder Cup, everyone plays so you can't "hide" a player that is struggling.

Disagree.

Most of the big names on tour care about winning. When they get 2nd, they aren't as concerned about taking 1/2 million less as they are about not placing first.

You think Tiger would play majors if they were for free? Oh course he would.

Then you mention your watching Pigskins for this reason? Pretty sure those guys are under contract, winning / losing isn't directly affecting their paycheck. (Given a lot of winning / losing might, but not quite as dramatic as golf to say the least)

Sterne is getting a "rest' this afternoon. Sadly, he and Grace will be the SA team in the World Cup of Golf event next month. I can certainly think of another pairing I would prefer!

Are they trying to show as few shots of Woods/Kuchar and Scott/Matsuyama as possible? This match would have been cool to watch, but I did not see more than 5 full shots in the last two hours...

 

 

 

Ah, there we go. Great second into the 15th by Woods.

Gee, I wonder who Watson is going to team Tiger up with next year?

post #107 of 155
another US vs whoever competition event... and once again the US getting SPANKED on the greens. What a joke. Ryder Cup last year, Solheim Cup, and Presidents Cup. Why can't the US sink some effing putts?
