I taped it and watched yesterday. It was fun that way. It was a better format than last weeks. I liked that they played in the rain too. I liked the trash talking and Peyton’s rolling commentary. He is funny. They should have kept the mic on him more in the cart.

Phil’s personality came out too, which was entertaining. He is a very confident FIGJAM. Brady showed he was human after all. I think they were muting his mic during the F-bombs. I’ve seen that stone face so many times when things are not going right. 

Tiger was quiet for the most part and I think the rain caused some breakdowns. Charles was Charles, always a character. The carts definitely sped things up. I enjoyed it.

Me???  I wasn't there!  Oh, Brady.  Yeah, I can totally relate.  IMHO, he was just having an off-day.  I know I have waaayy too many off-days on a golf course.  🤬

Well its officially the most watched golf event in cable history beating the 2010 Masters according to the GolfWRX newsletter.

If you are the PGA, you have to notice this right?

I believe I enjoyed this telecast as much or more than most PGA tournaments.  It was certainly entertaining, too bad the weather was not good. I particularly like the modified alternate shot format on the back 9.

If you are the PGA you also have to notice that golfers are starved to watch live golf on television right now.

Not only that, but there are probably a few football fans that tuned in just because of that. Heck, even basketball fans may have tuned in just because it's live sport. I don't think that the viewership of this event had anything to do with anything about the event itself, other than timing.

If you are the PGA, you just hit "forward" and send the email to the PGA Tour.

I was just following the lead of the guy before me.  I should know better.  I think PGA is sort of a "catch-all" for a lot of folks... even when they're referring to USGA events.

I know. I was mostly talking to the guy before you, too.

I recorded it too.  And watched it 45 minutes later while fast forwarding through all the commercials.  It was fun to not have to watch the commercials.  I do that with the evening news, as well.

Other than playing well, Tiger didn't bring much to the table.  He seemed very quiet.  Would have been nice if he were more talkative.  Phil tried.  And Manning added a lot.  I really liked Chuck's commentating.  Imagine if the two pros were Trevino and Fuzzy.  Or Chi Chi.  That's what I'm talking about.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.  By the way, Florida is having its wettest May on record.  Also, the Medalist is a much better course than the highly over-rated Seminole.

Yeah, no. But thank you. We can now rightly ship your takes on golf courses without even reading them.

Heard quite a bit of talk about this on sports talk radio right after. You don't have to mic up everybody, but I'd sure pick a few folks to mic up. Especially Justin Thomas!  He was very funny.

    • The USGA states in their guide to setting up a tournament course: "An area two to three feet in radius around the hole should be as nearly level as possible and of uniform grade.  In no case should holes be located in tricky places or on sharp slopes where a ball can gather speed.  A player above the hole should be able to stop the ball at the hole." Of course, this guide is for tournaments but it seems reasonable to expect day-to-day play to generally meet these parameters.  Unfortunately, courses don't always practice what the USGA preaches. Some older greens have slopes that approach unplayable condition when the green speeds are increased to modern standards.  Unfortunately, no course wants to tell everyone, "Our greens are rolling at a 6 on the Stimp Meter!!" When I play, I expect some hole locations to be very challenging and some less. A two putt should never be automatic on every green.  I am not, however, a masochist.  If a course insists on setting the hole locations in extreme positions or brings the green's speed beyond what the design can accommodate, I am with you, vote with your feet and find another place to play.  
    • Denny - I finally got around to checking my group golfer account for the first time since April, and they have extended my vouchers from early May to November 1. Which makes it on me to use them - I'm actually pretty excited having looked them up, it is a little bit like free golf (since I had kind of written this off )
    • I disagree. I’ll go on the record now and say he’s changing people’s perceptions of what the ideal golf body is (in fact I might have already said/wrote this). If nothing changes on the PGA Tour to reduce the viability of this strategy, in 10-20 years you’re going to see bigger, bulkier guys become the norm on tour, much like Tiger’s success inspired a generation of golfers to work out and hit the ball far with lean muscle. Tiger, remember, had his share of critics for approaching fitness in golf different than the norm. The media and some others commenting on this seem to make it out to be a novelty, like Bryson is a circus act because he’s quirky, but I bet there are coaches out there quietly taking notes right now.
    • And, they got zero camera coverage.
    • Just pulled the trigger on some used JPX 900 Forged irons! I currently have Mizuno MX-100s, which I've had for over 10 years so figured it was time for an update. I got those for cheaper than I was expecting so I went ahead and bought a 54/58 degree SM7 Vokey wedge. Excited to put these in the bag in the next few days as both of my current wedges are 10+ years old.    Tonight, I'm hoping to get out on the range and work on few things: 1. (Flow) Looking to move upper body a few inches back on backswing and before the downswing shifting weight onto left side. I'm hoping to  2. Slower transition to help with my "flow" 3. Hands slightly forward at address   Will get a few videos up from the range session tonight!
