The way Rahm and Fowler have played of late, I wouldn't lay a penny on them. I like Schauffele's odds at 25-1 and Spieth's at 18-1. Think those are good bargains. Of course, Koepka at 6-1, while super low, is still probably worth a few bucks. He'll probably win again.

I’m watching Speith playing the schwab. He’s making miles of putts, but announcer made a good point. He’s having to make those putts because his scoring irons are miles from the hole to begin with. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had a hot day or two, but I would think he’s a longer shot than Xander or Molinari.

Not going to disagree about how they've been playing, but therein lies the problem with golf wagers; someone makes a swing change, or just puts it together and they have a great week.

Interesting article about the US Open. Didn’t know Mike Davis relinquished setup duties. A lot of complaining in the article from players so be prepared:

Phil's fiasco (and others) have exposed a deepening rift between the ruling body and the game's...

Thanks. Didn’t know this. I thought Davis did a solid job despite all the player complaints. He was able to make Merion tough and fair when everyone thought it would play super easy. Will be interesting to see how they set up Pebble as far as how narrow they will make the fairways and if they will grow out the rough more like they did ‘92.

I did not enjoy the Open last year at all. I am old enough to recall very narrow fairways and rough that made you think about you exactly need to play it. Skill was needed on all levels, not just on how far can you hit it to take all challenges out of play.

Shinnecock wasn’t a long course. Last year was as demanding as they come. Winning score was +1.

I'm not certain what happened at the sectional qualifier in Japan held Monday - but only 15 players are listed with scores for 2 rounds and 18 show as WD after posting a score for 1 round. There is a Golf Digest article which mentions the WD's, but really doesn't explain why it happened (it does state that it is not unusual for WD's at this sectional)

Sectionals is was were my journey to the US open ended several times. I found out how good touring professionals ( even lower level ones) really are at those events. Dudes who often have never seen the course before just roll out there and shoot 135...com'on man...

    • In my practice routine, I’ve found that hitting too many drivers is a waste of stamina.  As was mentioned above, the driver is more forgiving.  Less than good swings can produce good results.     range routine:   50 ball bucket   section 1: warm up -5 balls with a 7, 8, or 9.  (Random pick from my left-middle bag slot.) -5 balls with 4, 5, or 6 (corresponding with the one above.  section 2: long clubs -3w off the deck until I hit 2 in a row well. -1 3w off a tee (assuming its good) -drivers until I hit 2 in a row well.     section 3: scoring rest of the bucket with mostly sand wedge. But, all various shots between 40 and 110 yds.     my best range days, I feel, are the ones where it only takes my 5 balls to get through the 3w/driver section.   I’m just more focused with a couple driver swings, rather than bashing a ton of drivers, knowing when I miss one that I can make up for it with the next swing.         
    • I think you’re right. It won’t be taken.  Do I agree with the basic philosophy of developing a good long game? Yes!  I just think you start with a good foundation and stretch it out. That is what worked for me and I’m happy for you if you found another way that worked for you.      People learn in different ways. You can agree or disagree. I can only say it worked for me. 
    • Thanks. Necrobumping now but flop shots is important for lob wedges as it´s the club I want to use if I am close to the green but have very little space to manoveur for the pitch or ship to stay on the green. So the S is not my club, I am probably getting the C though because I developed a phobia about missed chips! 
    • I disagree. Ok. But above..you’re suggesting your plan is a good one for others. Again, I disagree. And just because that’s how you did it doesn’t mean you’d be worse off having started with all clubs.
    • I was really just wondering specs but also when they were made and also what materials and i really need to find a heavier weight for my driver. the guy who runs the range said it probably would be impossible to find a wight but to just go with some lead tape. Yessir thats  the big lb 3 wood! I would definitely consider going with an lb 737 or 747 if i cant find a 727 4 and 8 iron . if i cant make this set whole if i ever save up enough id like to buy a set of the pp727 or pp737 blades that are on ebay every now and then. I have called Honma to ask them how the tour world 727 compare to the lb 727 but the guy i spoke with wasnt sure. i was told mine play more like beres and that i might not like the tour worlds as much but they look sharp to me. i am open to suggestions Thanks for the feedback fellas oh and by the way.....  By the way i went to the range today and i hadn't read any of your replies at that point but its creepy how you were right about me receiving a proper smiting! it was like a foreign set of clubs for a second there with the trajectory being super high today while before it was piercing and low.  Golf Gods got me for that one!
