Swing-off tomorrow

Is that sort of like a face-off in hockey only with golf clubs? 

Hmm. Grip down on a 3I and try to win it on the backhand.

Rant alert:

Watched the Captain's assistants interview last night on GC. I get all the weeklong celebration and build up of the event and all the talk about how many texts are sent out 2 am in the morning, but these filler interviews are nauseating..😆. The Koala bear was a good touch though. They were smart enough to not attempt to bring a Kangaroo in the press room. Ha.

Especially the camaraderie/team building questions are  terrible. I mean how do you get 12 independent contractor type millionaires in a room and build a brotherhood? IDK but I think it be hilarious if Fred Couples said they all sleep in bunk beds together in a 12X12 room and shower together to build that undying--no-man-left-behind love for each other.. lol.

Reporters putting JT and WS on the spot about about the Reed incidence was squirm inducing but I thought they both did an admirable job not 'no commenting' yet not throwing the fella under the bus. I am sure they were all expecting it and prepared. 

Can the damn matches start already?

You should call 911 and report the guy holding his gun to your head, forcing you to watch this.

 

Imagine, preliminary hoopla being hoopla.  Who'd a thunk it.

I did immediately after the show. They said I should post my grief on a public online forum.

Imagine having an opinion. Wonder why you bothered to read. Def not because I put a gun to your head. 😉

Tiger's group one up, but then the guy in the second group chips in for eagle.

You'd think with only three matches on the course we'd see more golf shots. Like… what's happening on the second hole? We didn't see either of the group's tee shots. We don't know if Tiger's chipped yet.

Ridiculous coverage.

So far I’m not too impressed with the coverage. It’s not like there are sooo many groups to keep up with. 😕

Are these greens the fastest any greens can get? Feherty said they are stomping at 14 or even 15.

Americans can’t play these courses.  Obviously the exception is Tiger who won his match (Thomas should have just caddied).

I don’t think these Cup tournaments mean that much to the US or it’s fans.  The selection process is not really made on who fits the links courses best.  You don’t need the length when you need to hit short and bounce it onto the green.  And we have no clue how to read and putt these greens.

That is why the DJ Woodland pairing is head scratching. Neither are particularly solid putters or show the short game. Maybe Tiger just wanted to get people interested in the weekend as we usually cruise to victory in the President Cup.
