 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. 😉

    • The best courses in my opinion are the ones where there is risk and reward. Courses with hazards that penalize wayward shots. Courses with  tight fairways and graded rough. Course where if you miss the fairway by 3 yds you still have a shot at the green but if you are way off line you have to take some medicine or take some risks/ get creative. Bomb and gouge is boring AF.  Courses I really like watching golf at are Augusta, Bay Hill, le Golf National, Wentworth, Pebble Beach( but set up with tough rough), Valderrama.  I want to see birdies and eagles on a Sunday, but I also want to see drama and target golf courses don’t always deliver. I want to see shots from deep in the shit, from behind trees, blind approaches, bad bounces and balls in the water. I want players to have more than way to skin a course, not just Driver wedge, driver wedge. I don’t care what the winning score is to par as such, but if the course is hard and fair I believe it gives the best golf to watch and the best drama too.     
    • Best part about 12 holes is you get to hit the local watering hole after your round and respond to those nosy patrons that you shot a 68.  No need to tell them you were 20 over par... 😊
    • Spent time this past weekend doing my annual club/bag cleaning. I wipe down my clubs after every shot. During my golf year, about every couple of months they get get a more thorough cleaning. All this cleaning helps with longevity.  This weekend's work involved cleaning grips, and buffing the the club heads. I use dish detergent, and a light scratch pad on the grips, which helps to regain some of the tackiness to them. Gets the accumulated oil, and grime off of them.  I buff the heads to regain the lost luster. Just making them shiny again. I put my groove cleaner to good work. I pay close attention to the soles, to see how perpendicular the scratch lines are to the club face. This gives me a little info on my impact position.  Cleaning my bag is an adventure in itself. Old, forgotten snack bars that made their way to bottom of the bag. That, and lost change, and forgotten trash. I found my favorite divot tool that I thought I lost at Bandon Dunes a few months ago.  Everything gets taken out, and cleaned. Trash gets thrown away. The compartments get vacuumed. The zippers get some very light (Vaseline) lube. I check all the seams, and connecting points for stitching repairs as needed. Strap connections get a thorough look see. Electronic stuff gets new batteries.  I also clean, and repair the 5 head covers I use. They tend to get a little dirty. I use puppet heads on my metal woods. The "Big Dog" (St.Bernard) cover required a little stitching.  Good thing my wife tought me how to stitch with out poking my fingers too many times. Proper tools makes this an easy chore.   The last thing I do is give the outside of the bag a good wipe down, with a light coating of Amor All. Then I set it out in the sun to dry off, followed by another wipe down.   Once the cleaning is all done, I do the restocking of clubs, tees, balls, divot tools,  ball marker coins, rags, shoes, gps, lazer, extra batteries,  blank score cards, and anything else I think I might need. One of the larger compartments stays empty for that spur of the moment stuff, that might require an ice block. Like others, I always seem to miss that "NO OUTSIDE COOLERS, FOOD, OR BEVERSGES ALLOWED" signage.    As I said previously. Clean tools, properly maintained, last longer. I'd also hate to think I lost a stroke or two, due to a slippery grip, or dirty club head.
