Best golf event on TV since the 2019 Masters.

We will have some live golf to watch in May.  Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson coronavirus relief golf match is on and could happen in May Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are

To me any live golf sounds good now. If I have to pay for it but proceeds go to relief efforts, I’d say its a win-win. Lets hope they adjust the game plan a bit though.

I was enjoying it this morning. I was until my DVR stopped at the 18th tee. 😡

Oh man! You missed the double eagle!  When I record any sporting event on my DVR that can go beyond its normal time I always record the dog show and the vegematic show that comes on after it, just in case.

I enjoyed this as well, but thought they had the QB's playing from a farther distance then they should be.  I think they said they were around 6800 yards, which seemed pretty long for their skills.

Well for the front nine Brady could’ve been playing at 5000yds and still porked it all up.😀

Didn’t get to watch it but watched the highlights and the outtakes and it was great. Payton roasting Brady multiple times even during warmups was awesome. Being an Eagles fan made it even better 🙂

When Brady hit a bad shot (many) there was a language coming out of his mouth I've never used.  "Gawd-dang-it."  That pansy approach just doesn't work when I hit a bad shot.  I've got to burn some ears to get back on track...

I think the sport would benefit from more one off events like this.

I would say I did not need the 1 club challenge hole and it might be my only true dislike of the event.

The 1 Club Challenge made us think how we'd handle that.  Otherwise it was lame.  What they should do is have a long distance club throwing challenge.

I'm gonna go against the grain on this one and say it was a snoozer for me. Part of that is probably because I am not a football fan in the slightest, and couldn't care less about 2 QBs playing golf. Between that, the rain, and the awkward shots from inside of the carts where it was literally just a camera on a guy driving a golf cart (no interaction going on), I thought it was kind of a junk event. I know they can't control the rain, and I was happy that all that money was raised, but it wasn't really an enjoyable watch for me.

I think Phil did a really good job of narrating his internal monologue in the driving shots that I saw of him. If I learned anything from watching years of reality TV, it’s that people need to talk to the cameras as if they’re talking directly to the audience.

I liked when Brady's microphone radio transmitter came off.  At first I thought it was his divot.  And I liked when he was looking svelte, ripping his pants, and then looking pudgy in his rain pants.

I think we're seeing a couple vanity handicaps today.

Even though it looks that way, but with all that pressure, I won't be surprised if they are not performing as well as they would otherwise.

I am waaayyy too familiar with not playing anywhere near to my handicap.

Consider how your HI is arrived at. From the courses you routinely play. And even though Peyton Manning is a member of Augusta National, I don't know how often he gets to play it. The thing about the handicap "index" is, I thought it could be adjusted upward or downward depending on the difficulty of the course you are playing that day. But I wonder. Like at the Pebble Beach pro-am they routinely announce some obscure entertainers handicap as " a 5.2 at his home course, Dead Mules CC in Loose Gravel, Iowa." 

Also, many years ago I read an article about the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla. Before opening the course for play, Greg Norman invited a bunch of buds, including Jack Nicklaus, to play it and provide feedback. After the round, when asked about his assessment of the course, he said that the fairways were far too tight, the forced carries over water and swamp were far too long, and the rough way too penal for a resort course! And one thing Nicklaus said was so vivid that it kind of burned itself into my brain. He said that he was a highly skilled long iron player, but he still had problems getting a ball to hold on the hood of a car! 

Greg wound up with more work to do!

    • I've always been curious about this, especially since I've lost a few head covers and always see a few sprinkled on the course.
    • I'll do my best to get it done and have some fun along the way. I don't have any particular courses in mind. But whenever I travel I try to get to a course nearby, if the trip isn't dedicated just for golf. If you have any suggestions of your favorites, feel free to let me know. Thanks for the response.
    • Day 17 (of last 18, 4 in a row) - Did some putting with the smart ball.  Also felt like my weight was ending on my right side, so I worked to feel like my weight finished on my left.  Tried stepping down on my left heal to start the forward stroke.  Seemed to feel pretty good.
    • Ok. So here's  the info from the last three sessions.... just so everyone knows when I'm hitting well, most of my clubs go around tour average , when I'm hitting  super good maybe ten yards  farther for my irons.. So I'm just trying to lock in the draw. My natural swing is a fade. First session, slight  head wind. Hitting some pretty decent draws. Second session, slight tail wind, but mostly right to left, huge draws. Today it was so still you could probably hear a ball landing off a 500 yard tee shot, couldn't hardly curve the ball.  What really gets me is when I over exaggerated the in to out action on my swing a hardly got any curve. But what was strangest was I had a lot of these shots that started right and even started to curve back left but then they stopped  just started flying straight  right after appearing to begin curving back. So they ending up being more of a push. What was more weird  was when they reached the Apex of their flight and started to fall they drifted from left to right. But there was zero wind and they began curving from right to left before  they stalled... it happened over and over. Some of the strangest ball flights I've ever seen. What's going on?      
    • 73 (+2) today in breezy and cool conditions.  Had a few bad swings but overall pretty happy with how I played.  Hit 14 greens...made a couple birdies but left a couple out there.   Encouraged that the SuperSpeed work I've done has been positive.  Can tell the swing faster but I don't feel out of control.  Only a couple bad drives but neither cost me very much...
