post #19 of 118

I just think the motivation factor for Rory can't be very high after playing three big tournaments like that and winning. I think he'll ramp it back up the last two Fed Ex events and The Ryder Cup.

Bo Van Pelt don ****ed up a perfectly good nine way tie for first. Bastard.

I read on espn.com that Rory "hung out in NY for a few days after the PGA, then returned to Europe . .hung out there for a bit . .then went to the Manchester United opener on Saturday, flew to the US on Sunday, had corporate obligations with Nike on Monday . .and then went to The Barclays. 

 

I'm older than Rory but that just sounds ridiculous.  I travel for work and just spending 4 days away from home and the travel back and forth pretty much wipes me out on the weekends.  If I tried to do what Rory did, I'd arrive at The Barclays in severe need of about a week-long nap, lol.

I'm guessing he doesn't have to do things most of us have to. Buy tickets, arrange for transport to airport, the whole plane loading process since he's doing the private jet thing. That's way easier. Plus he's got more room in the plane. And that's just flying. Money makes a lot of things way easier. And he's running on the adrenaline of winning and probably the energy of well wishers.

OTOH, it is tiring but a guy in his 20s, should be no problem.

Not if you got paid as much money as he did for all of that lol...I'd somehow find that extra energy

If you didn't know not to hit from the wrong green....well soon you'll know. ;-)

So now what if a players' shot lands in a spot between the hole and divot on the green?
post #35 of 118

You'd think the player or at least the caddie would know about that rule.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Rory had a lesser tournament this week. He hasn't had much rest and time to focus on golf since his last win.

 

It's just the first playoff tournament, he can have a week off and come back stronger later on.

I bet they get it repaired pretty decently....
