Then I'm not sure what you're saying, because what it appears you're saying is "If you didn't like it, you're not allowed to say so." It's in the past. Nobody who complains about Bill Murray an

I am in the category that Seminole is over-rated, but only slightly so.  Tough greens are not the only reason a course can be great, however tough AND interesting greens go a long way to making a

I am looking forward to watch this Skins match!

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.

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.
