Im a bit like that myself .  Was standing close to Lowry when he was trying to Qualify for the US Open at Walton Heath (UK)  a few years back and he was cussing like a trooper in front of kids . Ok maybe having an off day but Id rather see someone else pick up the jug , like anyone from England !

If you’re not from Ireland/scotland or spent much time there, I can see your standpoint. But I’ve been there a bit, and cursing is not looked at quite the same way as it is in the US or other places. I heard more f bombs on a bus in Howth from a 6th grade class, including the teacher, than I’ve heard on any one of Tupac’s albums. 

Fleetwood is gonna need to add a Stihl weed eater as his 14th if he doesn’t stop hitting it into the junk!

Koepke looks like he's basically given up. he looks liek a spolied teenager. Lousy attitude. 

Huh? After bogeying the first four holes he’s battled back and played -2 since. That’s not what I call giving up.

Need something to happen to make this interesting. Lowry is playing great, don't get me wrong. But this isn't as interesting as I thought it could be.

Nope. Tommy missing three footers isn’t helping matters any.

This and Jay28’s post earlier today are the two dumbest posts I’ve seen in this thread.

    • Trip to Oregon was no good, hit the driver terrible so I was basically scrambling every hole. Slowly working my way through my left misses off the tee. Mostly mechanics but also part mental with trusting it on the course. Can't reproduce the miss on the range. Finished one shot out of playoff for US Mid Am and US FourBall qualifiers.  Got a decent lead in our points race. Noticed that as I've been trying to improve rib cage and hip depth that the right ankle and foot would get unstable. Asked my trainer/pt about it and this is what he recommended. He just got certified in a foot program. Fingers crossed but for the first time I can really feel myself winding up the upper torso over a solid lower body. But doing it athletically not just faking it by not moving stuff around. It's the most rib cage rotation I've had going back without trying to force it. I like that I’m doing more work at the joint and that the joint is inside my right ankle at 4. I think the key for me with this foot tripod thing is to keep the right knee over the foot, not letting it rotate towards the middle of my stance. I can feel the "spiraling" effect. I have high arches and when I go into my backswing the foot supinates incorrectly losing the big toe joint contact. Ideally you would want to "build" more of an arch of the foot on the backswing and use that "ramp" on the downswing. This would be another way of explaining it. If the arch of the foot collapses then you basically lose access to the deep front line.  
    • Day 211.  Played 18 today, and really came to life in the second nine.  3 pars, bogey, 3 pars, closed out with two bogeys.   Shot a 39 for the second nine, something I'm not sure I've done at that course before (Hansen Dam).  I've had days where I hit a bunch of GIRs on that second nine, one day it was 7 GIR + 2 near, but I think I shot 40 or 41 on the second nine that day. 
    • And Chamblee said Poulter is the worst ball striker "By a lot" of all the players and Poulter won his singles match by 3 holes LOL...   Best result of the European players and most of the USA players, guess that's what you call an anomaly. Unbelievable how stupid that statement was, the Postman did himself proud....

    • I think I’m playing my wedges too far forward in my stance. That could explain the occasional fat shots and why I tend to hit the ball high off the face out of the rough.
