Rory and DJ on the same team? That doesn’t seem very even. They should really give Rickie and Wolff a stroke a side. 
 

I will actually watch this. Hopefully they can show Seminole off well over TV.

I know golf scores can be pretty random but on paper I'd make the Rory side a decent face if handicapping it.

I like watching skins so I think this is great.

Would love to see an event at Streamsong. Now that’s a Florida course that would look glorious on TV. Played it a few months ago and it’s one of the best I’ve ever played and I’ve played some beauties.

I don't think Streamsong would translate to TV well at all.

TV flattens the heck out of landscapes. Streamsong has some elevation, but the genius there is in the scale in terms of width and the subtleties in terms of height.

I absolutely can't wait to finally see Seminole.  

I also love skins games, so I'm looking forward to the match as well.

Also, I find it hard to believe that any course in Florida would be considered one of the greats.

I don't see anywhere in this thread or the linked articles that anyone said that. Am I missing it? 

The closest I found was in the ESPN article which stated

An added benefit is getting to see Seminole, a Donald Ross-designed course typically ranked among America's best

Which is accurate, it ranked 12th in the Golf Digest Top 100 U.S. courses for 2019-2020 ahead of some pretty famous courses including Riviera, The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, Pinehurst No. 2, etc.

The TaylorMade Driving Relief supported by UnitedHealth Group skins match takes place Sunday at historic Seminole Golf Club in Florida. The team of Rory McIlroy-Dustin Johnson will face the team of Rickie Fowler-Matthew...

NOTABLE PLAYING ADJUSTMENTS

Unlike regular PGA TOUR events, some interesting adjustments have been made for this competition:

• Distance measuring devices (DMD) will be allowed. However, the use of slope and elevation features on DMDs will not be permitted.

• All players may wear shorts.

• No caddies are allowed. Thus, all players will walk and carry their own bags or pull a trolley. Carts will be used to transport players to the 17th hole in case of a playoff.

• Players will wear mics. On-course interviews by NBC announcers will also take place.

 

I'll be tuning in Sunday for sure. It'll be interesting to see DJ carrying his own clubs that's for certain. Ranger finders too!

I wonder if anyone will be using a pull trolley.

Can't they just use automatic trolley that simply follows you around via the bluetooth?  Surely a sponsor of such a device would love to lend them for free exposure.

I'd love to see one (or more) of them use an autoamatic trolley, but it certainly wouldn't be for free; these guys make bank as a walking advertisement so I think they would use one if the price was right.

So long as we don’t have to get interrupted with a silly talk by the ‘CEO’ about how his company has changed the game....blah blah. If someone wants to run their ball washer....do it while continuing to show the golf.

I wonder how much DJ and Rory have actually been playing. I know Rickie hasn't really stopped at all and I would assume that Wolff is in the same boat. I think there is a pretty good chance that this ends up closer than the line-makers are calling.

I think I saw Rory say he took like 7 weeks off before starting up again a week or so ago.

Good info. I don't know if taking 7 weeks off will be enough to give Fowler/Wolff any sort of edge, but its a start lol.

    • No, the police knew George and probably did this premeditated. This case is unique in that regard. There are videos of police using that choke hold / maneuver on white people as well, with deadly consequences. By all regards, the policeman who used this choke hold did so with violation of written regulation on when it should be used. If they were even properly trained on when to use it. I feel like cops are given a patchwork of techniques that they hardly practice when to and how to use it.  Two of the cops were brand new to the force and were with a person who has been a policeman for over 10 years. Sorry to say, it probably would be career suicide to stand up to a cop with that many more years of service. It's not the right thing to do, but it's a very human thing that happens.   Especially when you hear stories about how police department culture can be. They would be branded snitches. Their lives would be hell for their career. Don't get me wrong, I wish they had the courage to stand up to policeman using the choke hold on George. I can understand their position and they're apprehension to not stepping in. Now, the third cop, who stood by and actually try to stop people from filming, should be hit with higher chargers than the two new police officers.  It should be training. It should be training that new police should know they can stand up and report on incidents like these.  I get you want people to magically have this thought, "Just treat them like family." But, that is a pipe dream that will never come true. Humans will forever treat people they don't know not as family. Still, you can treat someone with dignity and respect and still care for you family more.   
    • There is a teen near our area after contracting Coronavirus has now been diagnosed with another complication, Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome.   Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children causes swelling and pain in various organs and muscles. Many who get it had been infected by or were previously exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.   
    • No problem. You are very welcome.  One last thing, when you remove the grip and take the weight out, before you re-grip the putter stand the putter up on the ground  as if you were setting up to putt. The putter stands up by itself like some of those other putter brands made to do that. Of course once you re-grip it won't but I discovered that by accident and thought it was cool. The majority of weight is really low in that putter. Good luck. 
    • Additionally, the folks that complained about lock-downs and shutting everything down also complain about the masks.  I think the masks are a good, reasonable middle ground position to try to keep businesses open and restore some version of normalcy.  If anything, folks should be happy to wear a mask as a reasonable burden and otherwise enjoy going about your day; it beats staying at home and not making a living or doing other things.
    • George Floyd wasn’t shot. Eric Garner wasn’t shot. So the same police that didn’t react with force when armed white people protested outside their capital lost that training when it came to George? Or were those cops off that day when he got murdered? How about the other 3 officers that did absolutely nothing to stop their co defendant? None had training. If the police treated everybody like they would want their child or spouse to be treated all of this would go away. That has zero to do with training.
