Uhhhhh… no. Not sure what you're smoking there, but don't pass it around, please.

That's but probably wishful thinking , but even if true, what about the interim and the period thereafter ? Do we just accept that Majors will be missing half the players

You keep going with this "half the players" stuff, but that's completely bogus. Almost exponentially bogus.

Majors, probably less than half as of now but there'll be more in the interim.

No kidding "less than half." WAY less than half.

No, because LIV players might become irrelevant, and new stars will be born.

And there is Pat Perez, who I cant even remember the last time I saw him be competitive on the PGA tour. But now he is playing and winning money with a 71.5 stroke average. I am not even sure if this would make the cut on any PGA tour!

 

Perez managed to keep his PGA Tour card for 25 straight years. Never lost it. He also won three times, most recently in 2017. Before leaving for LIV he was on track to keep his card for another year. He also already had his Champions Tour exemption earned. So it seems he was competitive.

To be fair he wasn’t getting the LIV deal without his buddy DJ, but that has paid off quite well To the tune of $13M+ so far. He probably ain’t missing the PGA Tour.

He has a different definition of "competitive" than you do.

I agree more with his: he wasn't all that competitive, even if he was retaining his card.

He's made the Tour championship one time in the last 15 years.

Are you saying his career has been mediocre? 😉

But then again, what the hell do I know?

Nope. "Competitive" is the top small percentage. Competing for wins.

The frame of the Dbag power rankings video that shows on my screen is Club Pro Guy and Pat Perez.   I honestly can’t decide who has the worse shirt.

Someone at Golf Digest has a real knack for finding the right picture to go with the right story.   Really captures Reed’s default look, which is basically that Reed is the Face of Flatulence.

I saw something about Fatrick originally whinging about wanting to spend more time with his family, and then he plays 5 times in a month.

Huh?  The Presidents and Ryder Cups have always been meaningless exhibition games.  Their biggest significance is using them to buttress the claims of guys who could never, or hardly ever, win the biggest events, like Monty, Westwood, Garcia, and the like.

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..  
    • Like I was saying he's under the radar but would have played well at the Pres cup ....now maybe  in the top 25 in the world .. will make the next Masters..... >>>>>>>>>>> When it comes to motivation, Ryan Fox didn’t glean much from being bypassed for Presidents Cup captain’s pick a few weeks back. However, as he navigated St. Andrews’ Old Course to the tune of 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory Sunday at the Alfred Dunhill Links, Fox was spurred on by something else: his late pro-am partner. “To be honest the only person I can really think of at the moment is Warnie,” Fox said on the 18th green afterward. Fox, the 35-year-old son of New Zealand rugby player Grant Fox, had paired with Australian cricket legend Shane Warne a few times in this event, including last year when the duo finished second. That marked the last appearance for Warne, a regular at the Dunhill Links who died from a suspected heart attack last March at age 52. “There was definitely some extra motivation there this week,” Fox added later. “Maybe not so much the Presidents Cup, but definitely to try to do something special for Warnie … and I'm pretty proud to have been able to accomplish that.” Fox, who ended last year at No. 213 in the world rankings, is now expected to rise inside the top 25, 
    • Obviously Fox saw the discussions here and proved a point yesterday
    • It's been a long time since I've played alone, but I'm looking forward to doing it again one day. I like it as an intermediate zone between the range and golf with other people. I find it much easier to play alone, and it allows me to practice shots I otherwise might not think to try if I was on the range. Added bonus that it's very peaceful and low stress, and it's a nice thing to mix into the routine.
    • I quit because I have to. It's kind of difficult to golf through 3 feet of snow. Right now my issue is a lot of family demands and very little light. Also I often have issues with heightened expectations when I haven't been playing great as of late.  Since becoming an avid golfer, I haven't really quit golf, I've just put it on pause.
