Wasn’t he the one who slugged it out toe-to-toe with JT at the Memorial??

Yes he was!

That was a great win by Morikawa. He’s had a good season already, now it’s fantastic!
 

Super set up of the course with so many different styles of golfers in with a chance until the end.

He blew the lid right off the Wanamaker trophy!

I just knew someone would mention this! The drive on 16 isn’t the only thing we’ll remember! 😂

You have to go 11 guys down the leaderboard to find someone who didn’t shoot under par. That’s what makes a Major exciting. When you get everyone’s best game (like in the movie The Color of Money - “I want your best game!”) and they’re duking it out. Runaways, except for Tiger, are boring. 

And Wolff was sooo close. Two lip outs?

What is the general consensus on Harding hosting this major? Will it be back again for another Major?

I thought it was a good course.Could see another major going there. It also looked like the average guy could enjoy playing there without the thick rough.

What are the odds BDC is pisses and at the gym right now pumping iron trying to get bigger and so he can hit it longer at the USO next month thinking it will lead to a win.

Why?  Did you pee your pants?  I know it's exciting...

It was exciting!  No, I played golf today so I was still in my golf clothes, I wanted to put on my gym clothes so I could do weights while watching (weights finally came in the mail a week ago).  

I did successfully change and then fell asleep on the couch.  I made the post you referenced, then slept for about 30 minutes and woke up to see Morikawa's drive on 16.   So I was a little confused about what was happening scoreboard wise.

Great win for Morikawa.

He won Workday and should have won the Charles Schwab but missed a 4 foot birdie putt on the 18th in regulation.

Morikawa is going to get a lot of endorsement deals too. He seems to have a great personality, really nice smile and is a steady player on the course. Let’s see how he handles expectations now.

"I mean, sort of hard to knock a guy who's got 21 wins on the PGA Tour, which is three times what Brooks has.''
 

Rory on hearing Brooks’ ignorant comment on DJ only having one major while disrespecting the others at the top.

 

Absolutely enjoyed watching Bam Bam flop.

Don't get that. Anyone winning by miles makes for boring viewing. Why does Tiger automatically make it better? Hint: it doesn't.

It does for me. Watching the GOAT become the GOAT is history in the making. Watching Mike Campbell win by 3 isn’t.

I dunno.

What are the odds you’ll realize the dude has been playing incredibly good golf so far this year, has won a tournament, and just finished T4 during the PGA? 

And then maybe make the mental leap and realize that the added length probably has a good deal to do with that.

Morikawa, Wolff, Champ, forgetting who else, Hovland, and more. New crop of youth going to freshen things up.

    • I have a TheraGun knockoff; KRAFT. Have had it for two years now. It is quiet (60dba); has three speeds 1800, 2100, 2400 - I usually use 1800 with the ball attachment. Once a day minimum I use it all over - well what I can reach - soles of my feet, calf muscles, front and back of upper legs, glutes, upper back - particularly the area between neck and shoulder and about 6 inches down. I will also take it to the course and use on the upper back - as that tends to tighten up during the round. Here is a youtube video by Bob & Brad (Physical Therapists) - they post lots of helpful videos.       
    • It’s kind of a weird situation, though, because the guy improved to the point that he wouldn’t even qualify for the flight he’s already in. I’m assuming the competition is gross scoring within the flight.
    • 79 today for a differential of 5.8. Ball striking with the irons was better but my wedges and putting were awful. Couldn't control the distance or direction at all with how bad I was striking it for some reason. SG (compared to scratch) Driving: 2.49 Approach (>100 yds): 0.19 Short game (<100 yds): -2.66 Putting: -2.40 I also track the "Tiger Five," which is a better way of quantifying all the silly mistakes I make during my rounds. These were: Bogeys on par 5s: 0 Double bogeys: 0 Three putts: 4 Bogeys with 9-iron or less: 2 Blown easy saves (which I quantify as any nGIR that isn't in a bunker/deep rough or terribly short sided): 3
    • Very recently a thread was started here about PingEye2 iron sets and subject was some folk (experienced players) were seeking out these clubs to play AGAIN.  I have played Eye2 irons for many years, now on my second set as the first set was stolen.  As old as this design is, people have always got good memories and respect for these clubs.  and you can find sets for $100 or less ALL DAY LONG.  Buy a set, re-grip, and he's set up - to see if he likes the game.  With the difference from buying sets suggested, you have $$ for that driver and putter (these clubs will be more per each than a couple sets of Eye2s). and a bag. Be sure to put new 'velvet' grips on the properly fit clubs (according to the Ping site) and your son will have the best starter set he could find - and he may just play them for years to come.  You know, you're Ping.  PS - I had been planning on a new set of irons just because but when I tuck one up close from 100 or 150 yards, I forget about it.  I am shopping putters tho.    
    • Seconding this. Pretty much any OEM's game improvement or super game improvement from a couple model years ago will give him the performance and forgiveness he needs for a solid price. Just make sure you do your research on the ebay seller. I've had good success with it, but if you are more skeptical, there are plenty of second-hand retailers online.
