That rough is RIDICULOUS!!! is that how it usually is for the peons? I was going to play there last year but we got rained out, I'm not sure I can play a course like that. 

Actually in person, the first cut, it doesn't look too bad. At least compared to the USO. 

Another thing I noticed is watching DeChambeau on the range, usually with most players I've seen their swing on TV, it looks about the same in person, but there were subtleties to his swing that I didn't notice from video I did live, like the weird angle of his right elbow at setup. Saw Dan Carraher (took a lesson from him once) with Julian Suri, nice to see his student doing well.

Got to see Woods go through the whole range routine but didn't stick around to watch him play, tired and wanted to avoid rush hour, plus it was cold, should have bought a woolie.

The course does not set up well for spectating, at least imho, a lot of tees are inaccessible and cut off from the fans. I said the same for Shinnecock last year. I'm glad I went though, but even if you paid me, like a lot, I wouldn't go for more. Unless you helicopter me in and I get behind the ropes. If you are going and want a close up view, 6 and 14 tees are your best bet.

Concession stands not much choice - burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, club sandwiches. Boring. The US Open, the tennis one, has so much better food.

The player locator feature of the PGA app? It's not good. Not accurate.

Probably a lot better during the actual rounds, Steven. 😄

I was walking by the practice ground and stopped to see who was there. Then tiger showed up 30 seconds later. We stayed and watched him hit short wedges for about 5 minutes. Then my chaperone had to leave. 

Mom super pleased with how my son did today. We are having dinner now and he just asked me if we could play golf after dinner. Success!

It was functioning though. About half the players it displayed did show up. And there were player locator boards throughout the course, so someone was doing the updating, might as well reflect it accurately in the app.

I think Brooks K was right when he said, "he's only gotta beat about 35 guys" (or something like that). If one of the long hitters has a good week with the driver......could be pretty easy. Looks like we are gonna get the US Open in May.

Someone may wanna remind cbssports that Bethpage is a par 70. Several of their articles, including their predictions this morning, refer to it as a par 71.

Quoted this to say "is this Matt Fitzpatrick?" then saw the note underneath it that says "Fitzpatrick?" - so I'm going to say yes that's him.

This was a good read. Yeah, it's the NY Post, but I did not know the story behind the sign. Boss of the place saw a guy teaching his wife and 4 empty holes ahead and argument ensues with group behind. Does not surprise me. Still happens on the other courses though.

    • I said 4-6, which is round dependent for sure. If my timing is on I can strike a lot of very solid feeling shots, but the clubs I use could be masking those off center hits with the forgiveness built into them. I can also mishit pretty horribly those same rounds. If I'm having a really bad round I'd probably struggle to hit 1-3, but I don't know that I go a full round without hitting at least one flush shot. Of course, I could be completely delusional too.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Really my second full individual round(a stroke play event), or 4th if you count scrambles, on the year.  I am actually hitting my driver and irons decently as far as path and face is concerned and for distance as well.  My driver play is going especially well considering the lack of play.  I am definitely struggling a bit with low point but not as much as I thought I would. Had some great shots out of bunkers as well. I can't seem to figure out my wedge distances as is fairly obvious from this round.  My new Glide 2.0 wedges are confusing me a bit on some controlled distance shots.  I kind of miss my Edel wedges for that.  My touch around the greens is just not in form right now as would be expected.  I had some three putts out there but these greens are some of the toughest multi tiered greens I have played on.  We played with a scratch guy out there who shot a 77.  If i catch one thin or toe it a bit the hand also is in a fair amount of pain yet.  I look forward to the continued healing in the hand as far as that goes.   If i can avoid injuring myself this winter I hope to play a lot more next season.  Hopefully I can get out to Erin Hills and Sand Valley.  If anyone would be interested in playing theses courses next year with me, let me know. I am a bit on the fence over if I should work on the swing and try and get rid of the Furyk/Moore like loop or if I should just own it as it seems to be giving me the best face/path relationship I have maybe ever had.  At the end of the day if I can shoot in the low 80's from time to time next season I think it should be a lot of fun to play again.  
    • I’m typically around 4-6 if not even a bit higher. My issues come when I miss I miss big and start bringing big and crooked numbers into play
    • I don't know that that is accurate, and it definitely depends on the state.  In Colorado and California, for example, medical marijuana is exactly the same as the recreational strains available in dispensaries.  The difference is the level of taxation.  I did find one article that stated that 14 states limit THC potency, but after researching state-by-state wasn't able to pin that down.  I don't disagree that it's possible, but will argue the efficacy of doing so.  But to your point - Florida is considering legislation to limit the potency to 10% THC because levels above that "can induce psychosis in some users" (anyone seen Reefer Madness? 😄) A fools errand - the pot our parents smoked was around 7%, with the high-end "sinsemilla" coming in at around 9.5%.  It still gets you high.  Admittedly, the strains produced these days are much stronger, with 18-20% being considered high potency, and 30% being the upper limit for flower.  Extracts from marijuana plants, like hash oil, generally come in between 50 - 80%. To tie it all back together so I'm less off topic - regardless of the THC level, marijuana impairs a person mentally more so today than it did 20 years ago.  Golf is proven to have a significant mental component, aligned closely with the physical aspects of the game.  Thus weed absolutely has a negative impact on ones golf performance - though it might make a shitty round more fun.
