Yep- some animated golf robot ala Cleatus......

Ya he was saying, that last week (and previous weeks) he was hitting his putts too aggressively and had 4, 5, and 6 footers come backs for par.

 

So this week, he wants to hit his putts softer, with about 18" past the hole. So in order to do that, by taking the right (actually that would be Phil's left hand) hand off the club and using his fingers. He's able to make the same stroke, just with less speed.

Kevin Streelman just said that there are three greens that will be so hard to hit that he will not even try to be on in regulation. Just put the ball in the best spot from which to get up and down. Which three are that hard that pros may be better off playing for an up and down?

My gut tells me that Phil will take this for the emotional win.

 

Or it could be bad pizza working it's way through.

 

Not possible--there's no such thing as bad pizza.  :beer:

That's funny because I was wondering something sorta similar to this the other day.  One of the things about Pinehurst (I'm learning) is that it's famous for having these "turtleback" greens that fall off on all sides, right?  And a lot of them fall off to closely mown collection areas, that are basically puttable fringe, I think.

 

So if they have any pin positions that are tucked near the roll off point, then I was wondering if there were some situations where a guy might be better off putting uphill from off the green than downhill from the center - which if he hits it too hard, could put him off the green anyway.

Well Matt Kuchar was talking about that today in his interview. That on some holes with some pin placements, it is better to be short sided because you can chip into the up slope of the domes. 

 

Yea that is classic Donald Ross greens. He always liked his domed greens. He is also known for making the front of the green playable, but he will make over the green death. He will put huge drop offs over the green, think valley of sin at St. Andrews, but behind the green.

More like the spicy jalapeño cheese dip for the crust.

There always seems to be one player who can hit greens in just the right places.

Well boys, if Miguel does win, at -3,  then the fancy new driver is MINE>!!@!

 

Yeah, and what's with the two wedges stuck between his legs?  Some kind of groin massage?   He was recently married,  you'll know!

Remember, guys (at least those in the USA): because of the opening match of the World Cup, television coverage bounces around between channels in the afternoon. ESPN's coverage starts a 9:00 AM (all times Eastern) and stays on the air until 3:00 PM, when NBC takes over for the next two hours. At 5:00 PM, coverage shifts to ESPN2 for an hour; ESPN will pick up the broadcast at the end of the Brazil-Croatia match at 6:00 PM for the final hour of coverage.

To repeat (again, all times Eastern)...
9:00A-3:00P: ESPN
3:00-5:00P: NBC
5:00-6:00P: ESPN2
6:00-7:00P: ESPN

Wow thats a crazy schedule. I hate ESPN, sometimes they take over everything. Mike Turico and Boomer are the worst golf announcers ever in the history of golf.

Fitzpatrick is going crazy on the course. Hitting fairways, knocking down flags. As the announcer on the online broadcast said, "Oh to be young and dumb!"
