At Royal Portrush. GOOOOOOOOOOOO TIGER!!!!

John Daly denied the cart and withdraws. Good riddance.

GOOO Tiger! 

Don't forget, Daly was willing to play without a cart, but not after being bitten by a spider.  I hope it wasn't a radioactive one, because I don't think John is ready for great power or great responsibility.

One less in the field.  Does that improve Tiger’s chance of making the cut?  :-D

I gotta agree. I’m sure I’d have a blast sitting at a Texas Hold’em table with Daly but as far as golf his gig is up for me.

Would love to see Tiger do well, but have a feeling this will be a battle to make the cut. No events since Pebble mixed with cold weather is not a good recipe for his success.

Have a feeling the winner won’t be one of the top favorites. Maybe a guy like Schauffele or Scott or a surprise like Pepperell. I would think Rory would do well but too much pressure may be on him to win.

I feel like Louis O is very underrated. He is not one to blow fields away but I like his chances here. 

P.S. Tiger is just drafting. Look out..😊

I'm surprised there is no love for Francesco Molinari. Being half Italian, he is one of my favorites. Plus his name sounds like a famous chef or a spaghetti sauce you could buy at Whole Foods, and it rhymes with Volare.

🎶

M-O-L-I-N-A-R-I! Oh Oh

M-O-L-I-N-A-R-I! Oh Oh Oh Oh

Come watch Molinari today.

He will win in the Molinari way.

🎶

His game is really steady and he's been in the hunt for each major recently.

I think the usual suspects will be there on Sunday.

It’s tough to defend (unless your name is Koepka) and he’s not coming in with the best of form like he was a year ago. I think he’ll play well but don’t think he’ll win.

i think if Rory avoids the pressure, given the conditions are supposed to be fairly calm next week, he could eat this course up. He’s played it a million times. I just question whether he tries too hard to win. That’s usually when you lose.

But at least that song is stuck in your head now, right? :-P

It will be tough, but past champions tend to rise to the occasion. I expect him to be in the mix. He won Bay Hill and finished 5th in the Masters and 16th in the US Open.

It got stuck in the Ryder Cup last year haha

Sleeper to watch out for: Richard MacIntyre. May actually play $5 on him.

The Open replaced Daly with Streelman.

Daly replaced the Open with Barbasol, where I assume he can ride and spiders are more benign.

It still feels weird that this is the last major of the season.

What's the deal with that anyway? I was talking to somebody on the course the other day about it. Does he think he's just going to show up after a long layoff and be in major championship form?

Looking forward to this one - we all have our favourite tournaments, but for me The Open remains the #1 tournament in the world.

Got a feeling that Adam Scott is going to claim the Claret Jug in a close run thing with John Rahm.

Like mentioned above, I just hope it’s not a birdie fest. Getting tired of seeing these guys get to 15 and 20-under every tournament. From the sounds of it, though, If there’s no wind, there will be good scores.

Fleetwood for the win! Tiger makes the cut, but in the midfield. Rahm, Rory and Rose in contention on sunday.

I hope Tiger makes the cut.  Great for the tournament if he does, but it's a big ask. Has he even played since the US Open??  I see lots of rough in his immediate future.

    • My wife is a non-golfer.  We are both pretty independent and have our own interests, and support both being able to do the things we enjoy as long as it doesn’t get out of whack.  When the kids were younger, it was definitely harder to get out more than once a week.  Now that they’re starting to do their own thing, I get out twice a week (sometimes three).  I have a feeling I’ll be able to get in a lot of golf and mountain biking once we’re empty nesters.  All I can really suggest is try to support what she likes (which it sounds like you do), while helping her understand the thing(s) that you get joy out of and ask to receive support from her on that.
    • Day 25: Today I played a simulated round. The warm up was focused on my transition move, trying to shallow the club and have it not get more deep and behind me. I decided to “play” the round and commit to swinging that way even if I missed the ball. The goal was to work on the move even during a round, even though I know it wasn’t a real round. The scoring was terrible as I had alot of difficulty hitting the ball solid. Path was too much in to out but face angle was less shut to path than usual. 
    • Yeah, that's not really how you're supposed to do it. Put a ball down, putt it to a hole, then put another ball down somewhere else, almost kinda random, putt to a different hole… etc. You don't get a bunch of 12-footers in a row on the course.
    • Day 166.  Another dozen, same as the past few days. This has been a long week at work, and I'm glad for this challenge because without it I might make an excuse to not hit any balls, and I'm still glad I did the normal practices.  I acknowledge I'm not varying it very much the past week.
    • Thank you @iacas really appreciate the response.
