Anyone else enjoy the sight of BDC being driven back to the tee to reload as much as I do?

As long as I hear ‘ and another birdie for Tiger’ I don’t need any crowds. 😃

Jon Rahm just hit second shot on #8, a wood that barely got off the ground, hooked into the trees, tried to punch out and hit a tree and now the ball is in further trouble.  I will probably have something similar happen next time I play, so that sequence is going into my memory box for encouragement as needed.

Same with Tiger's putt/chip that barely got on the green on #13.

I am oddly rooting for DJ to close this thing out here. He's been so good for so long. He simply doesn't feel like a one-time major champion to me and this would be a much deserved feather in his cap. What a talent he is. Freak among freaks.

Im just made a birdie at 11 of which Ben Hogan would have approved, by chipping in from right of the green.

IIRC, Hogan said that wasn't a green to go for in regulation.  Of course, things were different then, both in capability and understanding.

I don’t mind DJ winning. He’s been one of the best for a few years now and has had some chances slip away in the final round.

Him or Justin Thomas is fine, now that Tiger seems to be out of it.

He's not a one time major winner in my book

I’m not sure your book is accurate then. One win, quire a few seconds places. He looks serene again today, beautiful golf.

In my book, he won at Whistling Straights. 

Anyways, dude is exuding huge BDE and I hope he walks away with it tomorrow.

So you have him not only not breaching the rules on the 18th, but also winning the resulting three-man playoff?

Lol, I'll go as far as to say he should've won there. Crazy he also has five additional seconds in majors as well.

I was just looking at the 2019 leaderboard, and boy, it's a bit hard not to be a tad disappointed with the names at the top this year....

He was unlucky, but made a mistake. It’ll be a huge year if he does win, and in 2020 it’ll be the first time a positive test for DJ didn’t fall him foul of the tour. 
I hope he wins and par might even do it but if he breaks 70 then no one will catch him.

DJ hit 16 greens in the 3rd round and 14/14 fairways. That’s a recipe for stress free golf for sure.

Is it just me, or does the rough (er, I mean second cut 🙄) seem longer/deeper than usual?

Tiger said it was playing like a “3rd cut” in his post round.😀

It was a low-event round.  Not a lot of need for par saves going on.

    • I will risk accuracy for distance if it’s still playable and I actually score better that way. If I hit it behind trees and lose balls frequently, maybe a shorter club off the tee is better, but going from a 6 iron to an 8 iron is a big difference. What I remember best from my best round to date was that I felt in control with the driver and could have at it without the fear if a push-slice. I hit fairways, rough and bunkers, but the advantage of being closer is big, even if I find a bunker or the rough. The courses also matters of course. Some people play regularly on courses with few trees and manageable rough. I’ve played on some really narrow courses where a bad shot often is a lost ball. You always have to evaluate the hole and where you are likely to land. On some holes the layout suggests an iron is better, or a wood. On other holes you can go for maximum distance with the driver. It’s easier to use numbers like that with the peofessionals than amateurs, so don’t get too caught up in decimals. Give it a try a few rounds and see what happens, but remember your shot cones and adjust club selections to the hole layouts.
    • In just the past week or so the pool noodles are out of the cups, and rakes are back out.  We've had food and beverage service on the deck all along, with limited indoor seating all along, and we still have limited seating indoors.  We're seeing a lot more two-person carts now as people are being vaccinated, but you can still ride as a single.  We're not planning any shotgun starts for tournaments yet, trying to avoid larger gatherings.  So we're progressing towards normal, not there yet. I think at the local Trump golf club, trolleys aren't allowed, caddies are highly encouraged.  Yet if you go to the home of golf, all the locals use trolleys.  Ah well, we all have our own opinions.
    • Don't worry the toes are in the sandals with the white socks...although sandals with black socks seem to be on the rise and more socially offensive especially in beach climes. 
    • Headcovers for your irons is like a vinyl film hood cover on your car.  It protects the hood from rock chips (purely aesthetic) but is a bad look.  Wear and tear on certain things in life is a given (bodies included), adds character and we should embrace it.  Like a good pair of faded jeans.  Hope I'm not stepping on any toes here.  And if I am then go out and buy some toe covers...
