2014 U.S. Opens (Plural!) at Pinehurst #2 Discussion Thread - Page 12

post #199 of 1034

Reminds me a lot of what Muirfield looked last year at the British. Most that don't follow golf don't realize that brown is actually good most of the time.

 

Course is playing a lot like it did the first round in '99. If memory serves me right there were around 3 or 4 guys tied for the lead at -3 and a few more one back at -2. Could look something close to that by day's end. Course playing kinda soft early on but will only get harder and harder.

I've been down to Pinehurst to play some of the courses around the area. I can just imagine how it would be to stand on those tees and view that course. I love it. I really do like how the natural areas look. Actually I stood near 18th green about 2 months before this tournament, and was just amazed at how visually stunning the course looked. 

I love the way that the course looks as well. Don't get me wrong, pristine courses that are manicured out the A like Augusta are absolutely amazing. However, I do love natural looking courses and courses that put off a kind of "links" vibe as well. People who see brown patches and laugh and make outrageous claims are seriously clueless.

I thought of that too from last year's (British) Open Championship.

This Fitzpatrick kid is killing it! Are amateurs not allowed to wear hats? None of the ones I've seen are wearing one.

I'm not sure if wearing a hat with a Logo might jeopardize their amateur status. Anyone?

They could wear an MLB team's hat or whatever if that was the deal.

They are but not sponsored ones. Usually they'll wear one from their college or a US Open hat or something like that.

Right. Unless they just don't want to wear a hat. a1_smile.gif

Forgot to set my DVR to record today's round. :censored:

 

Hope I can catch the replay later tonight.

The correct explanation is that, as amateurs, they are under no contractual obligation to wear a hat. They can wear a Titleist hat if they so choose, but the Acushnet Company isn't compensating them for the privilege.

Here's a lesson for all you aspiring pros out there: wear plus-fours, and television networks will cover every stroke you make.

Good point. I think I'll set mine from my phone right now. Thanks for the reminder!

post #211 of 1034

Yeah, I just saw one wearing a Titleist cap. Spieth gonna lose at least one stroke here.

I'm sure you will. Doesn't ESPN usually replay the majors late night through early AM?

Does Jordan Spieth bitch after every bad shot? His attitude reminds me of Bubba, which is kind of annoying.

Does it really matter?
