I’ve got to wonder if the results would be different if the captain was completely focused on leading the team, rather than trying to play as well.

I don't think so. These guys know how to play golf. What's a guy driving around in a cart going to do that Steve Stricker driving around in a cart isn't doing?

Finally...a putt. We need a huge momentum shift. Ball striking just not there. Ugly.

My Marines knew how to fight too.  But sometimes it takes leadership to pull them all together into a cohesive unit rather than just a group of highly talented individuals.

There’s a reason we scrutinize football coaches that lose too many games despite talented individual players too.  
 

Just a thought...

I think you're vastly over-estimating how much captains "coach" in these things.

The comparison to a football coach who actively makes calls re: strategy, deployment, alignments, plays, etc. is not appropriate.

And again, Stricker is out there captaining right now. He won the last PC.

I’m thinking less “coaching”, and more “leading/inspiring”...

We are running out of holes today. DJ looks lost on the greens. Woodland just lost. Reed and Simpson??  Woods and JT grinding. It should be easier fo these guys. 
 

internationals want it more as of now.

I think your dislike for Tiger is clouding your judgment.

Stricker "lead" just fine two years ago.

Or if the captain and his team had focused last week on learning the course instead of kicking off silly season in the Bahamas.

DJ needs to sit tomorrow. Back to back days his group getting slaughtered. The time off from injury is showing. Maybe should have sat this one out.

Should've pulled a Brooks, yeah, and stayed home. Kevin Na would be well received right now, I think.

This is so hard to watch.  Looks like a bunch of locals taking all the money from visiting tourists.

is it possible we don’t even make it to Sunday.

DJ has yet to play 16 holes in a day. 
 

International squad is making the shots they need to. We are looking timid. 
 

If we don’t grab at least 2 points this session it could be done Friday for us.

Between the Ryder Cup and this, we really need to evaluate who can compete the foreign courses the best.  Just because a player is top 8, doesn’t mean that player should automatically be selected.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
