Kudos to Woodland for a great tournament. Very impressed with how he held off any jitters to play some solid golf. Love that he finished with that birdie instead of a lag and par!

Woodland uses graphite shaft irons, don’t see that often

I don't think they're graphite, just the black version of the c-taper.

Good on Woodland.

Viktor Hovland ended up as best amateur in his second straight major at T12 with -4.

One of the best US Opens I've ever seen. The strength that Woodland showed he had to hit the shots he had to hit was amazing

Spieth had a good run there in 2015-16. Had a run of 5 majors where he went 1st-1st-4th-2nd-1st. And that 4th was one shot out of the playoff. Now comes the hard part for Brooks. He's been driving on adrenaline trying to prove doubters wrong and he's had an amazing run. Now he has to keep it going and try and win more majors and also win some PGA Tour events. Spieth had that hot stretch, too, but then lost the mojo. 

Yeah, Koepka will have to somehow sustain his rage. Maybe, Chamblee needs to keep calling him 'weak'...😆.

I swear to god Phil's birth certificate must just say "U.S. Open Sunday." Every single year I read something about how Sunday was his birthday. I know it's not true, but it's 100% true.

Born June 16th.   His birthday changes every year. ;-)

and It's his last am event, it would have been nice to see him finish 1 stroke better and finished T9 - as that gets an automatic entry into next years US Open,

Great win for Woodland - don't know why, but I was pleased for him ( I don't know anything about him).

I really don't get too enthusiastic about Koepke much because he seems a little bland, but his golf game is brilliant. Four rounds in the 60's and didn't win. Pretty amazing.

Tiger was frustrating again on Sunday - amatuer level for 6 holes and then shreds the next 12 in 6 under. 

McIlroy - very disappointing.  A dumb decision on 2 off the tee cost him his chance. 

Was gutted for Adam Scott... got it to -9 and had a chance and then inexpicably hit it 100yards right off the tee out of bounds.  How can that swing be so far off line - ever???

He’ll get in next year’s Open. He’ll probably get in the British. He’s going to make an impact early as a pro. May even win one of his first few tournaments he plays. I feel like he’s going to make a mark early on Tour. I’ll go on a limb and say he gets a top-15 finish this week.

Also, Tiger likely not playing again until the British. So that means he'll have played a total of 2 1/2 tournaments between Augusta and Portrush. That's 10 tournament rounds over 3+ month span.

Am's that display that kind of constancy agaist pro competition usually become multiple major winners. It'd be interesting to see what Hovland does in the next 18 months. 

All Tiger cares about are the majors. I doubt well ever see him play more than 10-12 tournaments a year in the future. It feels like to me that Tiger is pretty much going to depend on catching lighting in a bottle for a week for the rest of his career. Thats a hard way to get wins.

With Tiger, I hope it's not like Darren Clarke where he put so much energy and effort into winning a major that once he won it, he lost some of his drive. I do think the drive may not be there as much after winning the Masters, but I also think the body is giving him issues. I keep hearing since the Masters "I need some rest", which makes me worry about his health moving forward a bit. I don't know what kind of shape he's in physically, but if he's only playing three tournaments in a 3+ month span, that means he's likely not feeling great.

We were discussing this also. Tiger is physically brittle.  Something can go wrong at anytime so he is backing off playing.  Another thing tho and this is more personal but his children are at that age where alot of my buddies have backed off their recreations to have more time with their children.  Soccer dads so to speak.  Just my .02.

Ah, he was that close. The way he's been playing, he will hopefully qualify through other means.

He also posted the best tournament of an amateur ever in a U.S. Open. The previous record was held by Nicklaus with 282 at Cherry Hills Country Club in 1960. Hovland shot 280.

I just wonder how seriously he sees 18. I know it meant a lot when he was younger, but today, it may not mean as much. If he gets it, he gets it. If he doesn’t, he doesn’t. It’s not the end of the world for him. I don’t think he wants to jeopardize his future health by fixating himself on the record. There are other things more important for him now, which sucks for us because we don’t get to see him much and not at his best that often, but it’s good for him.

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
