 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.

What is the purpose of rectangular hole in lake on 11th hole at East Lake?

Overflow/drainage/water cycling.

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. 😉

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
