2014 Valero Texas Open Discussion Thread

post #1 of 130
Thread Starter 

Big field this week… but it's now two weeks in front of Augusta, so, that's to be expected.

I bet Spieth is psyched to be playing in his home state. 

As always I'll be pulling for Paddy to play well, I believe he needs a win for a Masters invite :~( 

I'm also cheering for Minnesota born Cameron Beckman who was narrowly beaten by Woody Austin at Sanderson Farms late last year. He could really use a win and San Antonio is now his hometown. Hope he's prepared. 

Kind of surprised Rory didn't join this tournament after finishing 2nd last year.

While living in San Antonio years ago, it seemed like every weekend the local San Antonio golf radio show would be touting what Jimmy Walker was accomplishing on some tour -----now that he's hit the big time with a lot of recent success, I think other than winning a major, The Players or Fedex Tour Championship - Walker would want to win this one in front of your family/friends.

I just scrolled through the full play by play of his scorecard after 8 holes. Nearly every hole is the same. Decent off the tee. Just missing the green on approach. Leaving 4-10 ft for his up n down. Missing par putt. Ouch. +6 after 8.

so much for the Texas home field advantage people had been talking about ----maybe he put too much on winning in Texas.....

 

looks like they had some bad fog to start the day....

Phil and Jordan both struggled today.  Phil had problems with his putter and irons today, though most of his putts were because he wasn't getting close to the hole with his approach shots.

Looking at the top of the leaderboard I wouldn't know if this was a PGA event or a Nationwide event. Good Lord. What's going on this year? I understand the parity, but this is taking it to a new extreme and I'm not so sure it's good for golf.

I know! When you see guys like Pat Perez on the leaderboard, something major is wrong! I hate that guy.

It's not looking good, I watched Phil mess up a greenside bunker shot that even I could make and it doesn't look like he'll make the cut.

Not a fan of his, either.

Ya but did you see that big rock in front of the ball? It affected the way it came out.

 

I'm not worried about Phil, he'll be able to head out to Augusta now for some practice.
