It is the morning after the PGA and I was very pleased. The tournament was excellent and even the coverage was good.
There was suspense well into the back nine with many great shots by many different players. Since the leader board was tight they showed many different golfers instead of just a few leaders and "Big Names". It is nice to see the talent of those that are not in the final group but still a part of the tour. I think I saw more shots of different pros in this tournament than in any other.
As for the coverage, they avoided the worthless interviews such as earlier this year when they interviewed Bill Murray and Pres. Trump. Instead they focused on golf. Having Phil join the booth was enjoyable. Maybe they should try to get a different play join for an hour each tournament. That would let us get to know the other players that may not get as much media attention.
I may go contrary to many but I liked that there were no fans. When showing the course you could easily see the surroundings and not just a line of fans along the fairway. It gave me a very different feel to each hole. Also, I did not miss the shouting of "Mashed Potatoes", etc. after the shots.
The only thing I did not like was that I needed to purchase ESPN+ to watch the early rounds. Fortunately it was only $5 and I can cancel so really not too much to complain about there.
I have seen them reported as "good friends" I wasn't aware of any fall out between them, It's not something I would follow closely though.
Either way, I think DJ is big enough and bold enough to look after himself without Rory's assistance.
I think you are taking them way to seriously. He is having a friendly dig at some his playing colleagues. If there are not able to take a bit of light hearted ribbing from a fellow competitor, they shouldn't be playing professional sport.
Day 53. Went to the range to hit balls outdoors (as if I didn't hit enough yesterday!) and get some video. Hit plenty of great 8-iron, 6-iron, hybrid, 4-wood, and driver with only a few poor shots mixed in. Where was this for the first 15 holes yesterday?
Either way, I focused on the setup and on not rushing. It's easy for me to not rush at home -- no one's here, I have all the balls I want and can stop and come back and so on. I feel some of my shots outdoors have been rushed lately, so I want to practice that, and practice it outdoors.
That's it for challenge purposes; I will be doing speed sticks outside later today.
