Well, sure, being forced to race through a course like that.

Well done Lowry - great round of golf.  To hold his nerve and shoot +1 in today's conditions is great stuff.

One thing to love about Koepka is he isn’t afraid to speak his mind and call others out. You know he’s going to say something post-round.

He should keep his mouth shut and just play.  He's fast becoming golf's bad guy.  Quite a few would have been delighted to see him collapse after 4 holes today because of his attitude and comments.

He calls out those who deserve it. He speaks his mind. I’d rather him to do that than hold it in. Problem with golf is too many guys try and be fake. I’d rather someone be real than fake.

You can be real without being an asshole.

I don’t see it as him being an asshole. The guy has four majors and a hot girl. I’d trade places with him in a heartbeat.

Historically, golfers who are playing at the level Brooks is playing have been assholes. That said, Brooks isn’t one. Slow play is a cancer in the game and he’s right for calling attention to it.

Just heard Koepka’s presser. Took a little bit of a shot at JB and his slow play,but not over the top. Basically said he doesn’t get ready for his shot until it’s his turn. He should be getting ready while the other guy is hitting.

Sheesh!  That's the case with 7/8 of all amateurs.  I have a friend from L.A. who won't even line up or execute a shot until you are looking at him.  He is not the Most Interesting Man in the World, but he is the Slowest Golfer in the World.

I wouldn't play with him.

Opinions, opinions.

Others can have them, you know.  Not just you.

Of the golfers you listed - sure, debatable, especially for Rahm and Fowler imo.

Why people make comments like that as they’re posting their own comment/opinion is beyond me. No shit you get to have your own.

Most on my list have achieved more than Fleetwood and Lowry (before today).

Absolutely delighted for Lowry. Great day for the Irish. He comes from only a half hour away from me.

What's with the pointless abuse? They are world class players playing on a great. The Open, and indeed golf, is bigger than any one man. I don't get this inane Tiger obsession, sorry.

Does he actually know what eurotrash is?

It was a telly programme on channel 4 here in the 90s. It was awful but good too. Look it up.

Well technically NI isn’t Britain anymore. I think Ireland and NI are a lot closer now than they were in the past. Especially given the fact there aren’t many Irish golfers.

I don't think that's right. And technically NI has never been part of Britain. Britain = England, Scotland and Wales. The nation is the UK, the United Kingdom of GB and NI.

Don't watch when the wind blows then as you are unlikely to see any Americans in contention to win.

 

Fowler is by far the best of the leading Americans in bad weather.

Nope, Fowler was +3 today, Finau level par, Koepka also +3, Reed was better, Justin Thomas also better.

Question for those from Ireland or the UK...or frankly anyone from Europe with more context than me. 

Shouldn’t N Irish fans generally be more supportive of Brit players (Fleetwood, etc.) than Lowry? I’ve been a bit surprised this weekend by how overwhelming the crowd is in favor of Lowry. Granted, I’m sure there are plenty of Irish (Republic of Ireland) fans in attendance but just curious. 

The Golfing Union of Ireland encompasses all of Ireland. It existed before the border. You can only play golf for Ireland.

The Golfing Union of Ireland is to Ireland (both north and south) as the USGA is to the US.

It existed "before the border" because it predates the 1916 uprising, the founding of the Republic of Ireland, and the partition of Ireland on 3rd May 1921, which, in this context, is meaningless anyway, because it's an amateur golf association for a geographical area, not a political jurisdiction.

Your post makes zero sense.

    • Yesterday, I rolled an 88.  I'm no mathematician but I believe it's under 90.  
    • Thank you, good to hear Good golfing👍
    • Day 25- Putting and chipping practice indoors. Practice has been transferring to block practice at practice greens, and hope it will happen when I am playing this weekend.
    • I have partial knee replacements in each knee in 2019. My game is just as good if not better than before the surgeries. I really can’t feel or tell any difference in playing other than the knee pain all gone. It was pretty bad before the replacements. Glad I did it. 
    • Wade - Thank you and congratulations to you as well. What a story and sorry to hear about your shoulder and other sports battlefield injuries. I am guilty of ignoring my shoulder pain and playing through it until I had no choice but do physical therapy. Unfortunately, the therapy did not do much apart from helping with living with shoulder pain. One day I decided to pick up swimming, specifically to learn the back stroke - literally on the first session I felt a popping relieve in my shoulder. It felt like a trapped nerve or muscle knot was released and now I am fine again. Maybe having the Alabama winters is a good thing. I imagine the excitement when the winter is over and golf season starts again. In Nevada we have golf weather almost all year.
