If Patrick Reed wins I'm going to start pumping my septic system on Monday.

I didn't see this live but here's an article. I can't stand Speef. He's such a little bitch.

Fans were not impressed with Jordan Spieth blaming his caddie.

 

I listened to it over and over again, I can't hear the word "you" no matter how hard I tried.  It could just as easily be "Two perfect shots, Michael.  It got me one in the ......."  or even just "got me one..."

He could as easily be saying he hit them both super pure and they flew farther than normal.  Sometimes players just talk about the shots they just hit.

I actually thought the same thing when it happened. When I read the article, I figured I missed something. Maybe I’m getting old.

To me it sounds like he said "you got me".  When watching it live it definitely sounded like he was getting after his caddie.  

They must have been between clubs on both shots and he went with his caddie's advice.  

I didn't really find it out of line.  When your getting 10% of winnings, you aren't immune to a little blame.

Expecting sunshine or warmth in California might be asking too much ;-)

I think I can hear it pretty clearly right as the video clip goes from 25 to 26 seconds.

I'm generally a Spieth fan, but definitely not a fan of that.

But Spieth is still the one hitting the shots... Even if he went with his caddie's advice it's still up to Spieth to execute it properly. The only thing I could see blaming the caddie for is if the caddie gave completely false information, like if it was 250 to the water and Greller told him it was only 230 or something then sure that's on Greller, but the player should always have the final say on what club to hit.

If they were between clubs and Greller said take the longer one, then it's on Spieth to know how much he needs to dial that club back some or it could go too far.

I got fancy noise-cancelling headphones and I think I heard "ya got me..".  it could just as easily be "it got me".  His head was down which makes it a little garbled.

Either way, I don't care. Personally, I don't think they should be listening for or broadcasting that stuff.  Let the people compete in one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world without having to worry about voicing some frustration and sending the Twitterverse into a tizzy.

I’d rather see 20-30mph winds.

I watched some of Thursday's round. Based on what I saw, I am hoping the course becomes tougher as the tournament moves on.

Tiger setting himself up for a solid T9 this week while J Rose is out for blood. 

We’ll see on Rose. Too many good players going out later today that can catch him. These conditions are ripe for Rory. Also think Schauffele is very dangerous this week.

While I agree with this, I'd rather see a course play like this when the conditions are like they are - rather than have the USGA kill the greens in order to have them play firmer and faster.
But when there are dozens of guys who can drive it 300+, then courses of this length become bomb and gouge events

Why not? What's wrong with that happening?

It's the US Open. As a viewer, I expect higher scores. It should be the tougher set up of the four majors. 

Plus I like hear about the players pissing, and moaning about tough, unfair set ups. It shows their worth.

    • I've also only played Kelly and The Links Sandestin.  Both were a lot of fun.  Kelly was my favorite.  Sandestin maybe a little too tight and too many houses in danger of my tee shots. 🙂
    • Four rounds to catch up on: 7/20: Finally got my bro out to Croasdaile to play. I shot 51-44 from the blues that included a nine on the 9th hole. Didn’t putt well: a four putt and four three putts. My bro shot 59 on the front, which isn’t bad at all for him since the front is the tougher side out there, but he played awful on the back. 7/23: Back to the home course for the next three rounds. This one was a nice little 87 where I made a quad on the par-3 third and a triple on 14, but played well apart from that, including back to back birdies on 9 and 10. 7/30: I played the day after we got back from vacation and shot a pretty poor 96. Made a nine on the second hole and it just went downhill from there: 49-47 were the final numbers. 8/1: The best round of the four: shot 40 on the front with no doubles, then a 44 on the back which included a triple on 13 and a double on 17. Total is 84, which I’m super happy with. Also dropped my handicap from 13.8 to 13.5. I’m probably gonna play tomorrow as well, so looking forward to that!
    • Adam, you always give great advice. May I make one suggestion? Use a dry erase marker rather than a sharpie. Much much easier to clean off the club face. 🙂
    • Yea, not something you can decide on your own. Someone can say all the benefits of a single plane swing, but it might not work for you at all. 
    • Damn Kevin…I’m not even an instructor but I certainly think you’re doing yourself a disservice in all this pondering and video searching. Not to be an ass but you're all over the place. You’re building a house and analyzing the kitchen sink before even having the foundation poured. Have a good instructor give you a priority piece then focus on that and that alone. You’ll find much better progress that way. Just my two cents.🙂
