 It’s almost like when Koepka wants to win, he wins. And if he doesn’t win, he’s damn close. When was the last time he played a tournament where he probably wanted to win really bad and laid an egg? I guess the ‘18 Open but even then he rebounded after an awful start. 15 million reasons to motivate him this week so yoI know he’s all in.

The 2019 Masters.

He finished 2nd. That’s not laying an egg.

Again, didn’t say he “always wins” when he wants to win, but he seems to either win or come damn close.

To Koepka it is. If he wants to win and doesn’t , he laid an egg. He dunked a ball into the water on the final stretch at The Masters. Egg.

No disrespect, but you are calling out Brooks Koepka for laying an egg by finishing second at the Masters from behind a keyboard.

Brooks is a stud so I really doubt you would say that directly to his face.  Not even DeChambeau is that stupid.

That's not what @Vinsk is saying. He's saying from Koepka's point of view, because his goal is to win the major, not winning is considered a failure.

That's ridiculous. Because he's golf big people should be afraid to say words to his face? What's he going to do, hit someone for pointing out that he didn't win the 2019 Masters?

Some people here seem to personally know Brooks perspective, But I can’t recall him ever saying he laid an egg for not winning the Masters.  I think he said Tiger played good.

I would guess he was pretty ticked (you can use any other appropriate word) and used maybe more than a few expletives with his water shot and missed putts, but laying an egg?

With all due respect, I made my living as a pit fighter for many years. Trained in Kickboxing and MMA as well. Brooks I can handle. You’re being silly though as you totally missed my point as it was pointed out. I simply answered the question as had Brooks ever laid an egg ( not win as Brooks sees it) when he wanted to win. Brooks has made it clear he plays to win majors first and foremost. He was in second place and laid an egg on 12 and cost him that win. Relax.

He seems to at least be expanding his horizons now to try and win WGCs and FedEx Cups...not just majors. Maybe one day he’ll take the 3M Championship seriousl....ehhh...maybe not.

I think one of Brooks or Rory will win the $15m this week... possibly Rahm could challenge them.

Schauffele pulled a rabbit out of his hat on 17 and 18 to get to -11.  I saw him on Feherty the other day.  Nice kid.

Today seemed like a Saturday.  I think the pairings based on score helps with the intensity.

I like the competition between the top players with the new format.  But it does eliminate half the field from any contention.  Except for the highlights, such as Reavie’s hole In one, it is as if no one else is playing.  Then again they just have to show up to get $500k.

Wish they would have started the leader at Even instead of -10 so it felt more like a US Open instead of a Canadian Open. But all jokes aside, I like the format so far.

In retrospect, if they do get 30 holes in tomorrow, it may be a blessing that Tiger missed going to East Lake.  He would have started a lot of strokes out of the lead, and playing 25+ holes on Sunday would be brutal on his body.

Such a tease a few hours ago.  I put on the TV and heard that Tiger has a real chance to win this thing.  I thought I had given up on his chances to win the Fed Ex Cup almost a week too soon.  Sadly, I discovered it was a replay of last year's final round, which I enjoyed re-watching.

That walk up 18 was better than anything we’ll see this year.  I loved re-watching Rory’s reaction to the enormous crowd following Tiger.  That whole sequence was so surreal.

At the TC? Yes.

Tiger at Augusta was better than the ‘18 TC. 😉

    • Hoping there are a few people here who are using Game Golf Live, and can advise, as I was getting well frustrated on the course yesterday.  I am still fairly new to using Game Golf, got it gifted 6 months ago, but only now been playing with it Anyway, on the course yesterday, just could not get it to work stable.  Switched on the Game GPS Unit, it started flashing, then bleeped, white light flashing then paired it with the game golf app on the phone.  It showed my location, so thought off we go .... tag'd my first club the GPS Puck, flashed and vibrated, briefly saw the app show 1 shot, before it went back to 0 ..... took my shot anyway, go to the next shot, again, showed my location, tag'd my club, again same vibrate .. but still no register showing on the phone.  Checked the GPS unit, their seemed to be no lights on, however, it was still registering my location At this point, I ended the round, quit the app, switched off the puck, and then tried to reconnect it all again .... it seemed to go through the same as above ... at this point, got annoyed and switched it off for the round, as it was to distracting So, just wondered, what process / order do people use to get their Game Golf connected correctly.  Do you switch on the puck first, the app .. .what order is this done in
    • So, yesterday I played my par-3s in even, par-5s in one under, and averaged 4.5 on par-4s ... and no sixes.  Anywhere.  Or worse.  First time I've done that. Check it out, my scorecard from yesterday (Nov 16, 2019). f   This was from the blue tees at Encino golf course in L.A..  The second line is where I put notes for later:  G (GIR) or N (near-GIR).  I on occasion make other notations (S: I hit sand, A: got to the green as planned but not in either category;  F: messed up the hole)  I don't do this during tournaments of course.  Just saying it here because it's in the picture. In case the challenge has any such restrictions, I played blue tees which are 70.1 / 114 / 6574 yards.  No mulligans, played with friends in a skins/modified fourball type casual round.  I did accept a few very short conceded putts (none over about a foot).  I believe it qualifies for the challenge.   And I was fully aware of where I stood, score-wise and challenge wise, when I hit my second shot at #16.  So I played the last 11 strokes knowing I had a good round going and a chance to finish the "no sixes" challenge, with a par-5 waiting for me at the end.  I hit a good drive, a great 4-wood, and pitched on from 75 yards with a 9-iron (half swing).  Almost made the putt for a 75 too   76 beats my previous best score of all time by one (that 77 had two sixes on it... but also three birdies).  I get the feeling I'll have a bunch more good scores if I can produce more "no sixes" scorecards  
    • Day 9.  Hit balls for ten minutes indoors, off a mat, into a net.  6-iron.  Focused on completing the backswing.  Balls were plastic.
    • My best shot of the week was hitting a 240yd drive on a par 5 hole twice! No winter roll, no downhill/wind, no cartpath. Just hit it perfectly with a slight draw to the middle of the fairway - ended up with a birdie on that hole both times!
    • Mayakoba Update: Actual events have me standing corrected on the imagined alternative finish as suggested in the preceding post. The reduced field of the alternative scenario most definitely would have finished the 3rd and 4th rounds in one day -- a most important thing to know, if -ANY- type of change is to be made to the actual Low-65 cut rules.
