Brooks is so far having the tournament of his life, five shots ahead of the next.

Hasn't he already done that 3 times in the last 2 years?

I'm both saddened and dismayed by the short-sighted mentality of several contributors to this highly-esteemed thread.  The tournament is far from over and this bloke (Koepka) does little to impress me.  At my country club, I have won 4 club championships.  In some ways that's more impressive than 3 majors.  I had to do it all at the same course against fellow members I see every day.  My most fierce competitor is William Tornquist III.  Twice now I've had to use a bit of gamesmanship to get under his skin, which isn't an easy task as he's a bit on the portly side.  The first time I asked him if he had switched his brand of trousers or if he simply become more stout.  I knew the latter was the answer but, nevertheless, mission accomplished as he tightened his belt to the second to last notch and went bogey bogey.  I literally skipped off the 18th with my 4th victory in hand....dancing and singing all the way to the clubhouse to prepare for my victory speech.

He hasn’t had one where he’s lapped the field. This could be the week for that.

This is the worst I’ve seen Tiger drive it all year. Amazing he’s Even for the day hitting 1/8 fairways. And it’s not like these missed fairways are in good lies.

Did Colbert invite you onto his show that evening?

He won the 2017 US Open by 4 shots. The point is, he's not having the week of his life, like say Lucas Glover did, he has several times shown the ability to win majors.This is not something he hasn't demonstrated before.

He won by 4 and that lead stretched late. When I think of lapping the field I think of what’s Rory did at Congresional and Kiawah and what Tigers done a few times. Just complete control the whole way and winning by 6+ shots.

Still wouldn't call this the tournament of his life when it's not even half over, he hasn't won anything yet and he's won 3 of the last 7 majors. Again, saying tournament of his life implies something he's never done before or could be expected to in the future.

Really like to see Koepka fire a snowman on a par 3 and make this interesting again.

Must I remind everyone that today is only the second day of the tournament.  This Koepka fellow will show his true colors in quick fashion and will be nothing more than another one of the poor sots who vanished like dust in the wind.

Scott -7 for day and still 4 holes left. Too bad Grace had to break that record a couple years ago. Was fun watching guys try and shoot 62 and just miss. Maybe first ever 61?

His bad putts are just shocking. 

His drives haven't been much better today. 

Guys are tearing this course apart right now. I guess the PGA expected wind and set the course up easy today, even moving up some tees, and the wind never came.

Tiger: ‘Ok kids...daddy showed you how I win a major...now I’m gonna show you how to utterly blow one up.’

    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better. 
    • Update - I sent an email to Arccos support about my Caddie Link order, again, and received this prompt reply (in part): "... We did begin fulfilling pre-orders at the end of September and then the first week of October our manufacturer informed us that due to COVID they are unable to acquire the needed materials to complete further devices for the next couple of weeks so shipments have halted for the time being. Shipments of the devices will commence the first week of November. We greatly apologize for this delay and issue and once they send yours out we will be sure to send you tracking and status updates."  
    • Hi all, I was fit into both the Mizuno JPX 921 SEL irons (which is a combo set of 6-GW Mizuno JPX 921 tours and then 4-5 JPX 921 Forged) and the Taylormade P770 irons.  I hit both pretty well, and thought the Mizunos had a slightly better feel but the Taylormades went slightly further.  Both had good spin rates and descent angles, although the Miznuo was slightly better on those factors for me.  I feel pretty torn between the two, I like them both a lot looks wise.  My fitter said it was a really close and tough call but that at the end of the day he would probably suggest the Mizunos for me because they're cheaper to get customer shafts and grips with, the lie can be bent more, the higher center of gravity helps a small amount with my miss (a hook), and they will last me longer as I continue bringing my handicap down.  On the other hand, the P770s are a touch more forgiving and go a little further, so it's a tough call for me. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts between the two or advice or perhaps would just like to share which they would pick in my shoes. Thank you.
