I think the reason for using multiple courses is to benefit early season (less daylight) playing, If they only use one course, then the afternoon field may not complete their rounds, due to darkness.

Also on the west coast, they often have "fog delays" which really screws up getting rounds completed.

 

It also enables a larger field of players to participate, especially when having Pro-Am events.

 

Next week at Pebble, the event is played over three courses.

According to Wikipedia:

When considering human-powered equipment, a healthy human can produce about 1.2 hp briefly (see orders of magnitude) and sustain about 0.1 hp indefinitely; trained athletes can manage up to about 2.5 hp briefly and 0.3 hp for a period of several hours.

Don't they have to go to the bathroom at some point?

After watching Tiger yesterday, I'm beginning to wonder about him  wining another major.  Big issue; putting.  He just doesn't read putt very well now.  Driver is as troublesome as before, iron may be rusty for the first game but the putt is something he used to be above and beyond.  Now he looks just average PGA pro.

I saw some misreads yesterday, but 27 putts for even par at the south course doesn't exactly raise alarms FOR ME yet.

Tigers whoa's yesterday were drives running just slightly off the fairway into the rough.

 

That lead to missing greens and when he did hit the greens, he had long putts.

 

He did miss a couple of opportunities for birds, which didn't help.

 

It's still early, he has the game to light it up.

 

Spieth is doing better today, but Walker is still in a funk paired with Tiger.

Speith is on a mean roll!

This was clearly Tiger's B- game. Where would most players be with their B- game?

I think Phil is playing with his B game also. he said he was having back problems. I have a funny feeling that a "dark horse" may win this..?

Both Tiger and Phil look very uncomfortable and "average".  I mean one guy won 8 times professionally there and the other guy 3 and lives right next to it.  Maybe they can bring some excitement for weekend.

Well, Jordan Spieth is leading, so that should provide enough excitement for some.

The average pro wins 5 times in a year?  Do you know how many pros have EVER won 5 PGA Tour events in a single year?

Tiger is 9 back, but will still get 50% of the coverage. Why?

post #34 of 86

maybe because 90% of the audience wants to watch him play ? maybe since 90% of the last 17 years of golf are tiger built. and therefore 99% of the anouncers buying commercial time want to have him on the tube.

 

could also be that 50% of the pay raise for todays winners are due to tigers attraction.

 

he's the man. many want to watch him win or loose.

 

did you watch rory win the us open ? what a dull play ! nobody cares. nothing sells.

post #35 of 86

I like to watch Tiger when he is contending, I don't when he's not. I would just as soon see the guys leading, playing good golf on the given day.  I really don't give a rip what the manufactures/sponsors want, but money talks. I'm in it for the play, not the celebrity. 

 

I hope Jordan get the coverage today. 

post #36 of 86

Jordan Spieth is something special.  I hope he can continue to play at this level.
