WOW, Rory at -7 through 11. 

Should I be thinking about a divorce...for my golf game?

(joking of course)



but seriously

If Rory goes out and wins back to back weeks after his split, it would be a pretty telling sign why he struggled the last two years...

 

Although I already suspect his relationship was a major factor anyways...

Gary McCord won't be endorsing Aimpoint anytime soon. Jeez, it's not rocket science. He made it sound like multivariable calculus.

Aside from Rory's 1 bogey...that boy is on Fire. Good to see him playing like he did a couple years ago.

Opps, my bad. Thanks for correcting that.

The crazy shot of the day was Phil's par on number 13. Drive into the fairway bunker, Second shot to about 60 yards from the green. Left it short in the front left bunker. Holes out for par!!!

 

CLASSIC PHIL!!!

Haha, wasn't meaning to correct you.

 

Just pointing out how crazy his round was!  Two eagles on the back side.

That was awesome. The shot out of the hazard on 11 was good too. Plan to follow him around tomorrow. Never a dull moment with him.

The big names showed up big time, should be interesting

They said Rory was over 6 on strokes gained putting. And over 9 strokes better than the field on the leaderboard.

Made me wonder if they might also calculate a "strokes gained ball striking" where u subtract the two. He gained 6 of his 9 on the greens, so he gained 3 more on the field prior to reaching the green, right? Wouldn't that be cool to see where everyone stood in strokes gained on and off the green for each round?

Keegan on making the switch to the short(er)* putter.

 

I don't know if I'd call 41" a short putter, but it's all relative I guess.

They're doing that yes. Soon. This year perhaps.

Rory off to a horrible start. Makes you wonder if his knee is bothering him or this is another case of the "2nd Round Blues" he's been struggling with all year.

Ouch, +6 thru 6

I can only imagine he's having some serious pain causing him to play so badly, I mean, that looks like my scorecard :-(
