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.

    • Recently I have been doing something I haven’t done in a while. Avoiding blow-up rounds. I have been playing the kind of golf I’ve wanted to always play. Boring. Pedestrian. Stay out of the shit, call the zoo kind of rounds. Ho-hum kind of golf. The last round I shot in the 80s was in August and that was an 81. My last five rounds have been 73, 76, 78, 73, 71. The last one was pretty boring. I had back to back bogeys on the 2nd and 3rd holes, then birdied the 5th and 6th (pedestrian birdie at 5, 2 putt at the par 5 after a 3-wood on the green straight into the fan from 235 yards) Nearly drove the 395-yard 6th (relax it was straight downwind and as the crow flies its only 340), got up and down for birdie. Then made 12 boring pars in a row for an even-par 71. 12 GIR, 18 nGiR, putted average. I guess I’ve learned how to be that boring golfer. I’ve been fighting a bit of a hook, so I said, “The hell with it, it’s what I’ve got. I’ll just adjust my target accordingly”. I guess having a one-way miss is a good problem to have.
    • Day 121.  More carpet putting;  ruler, putter, real balls.  Getting some decent speed ones past the 36" marker consistently. 
    • Day 48 - Moved my mat indoors, took some swings working on my new setup. 
    • I have struggled with the flip as well, and similarly have tried many different swing thoughts and drills to fix it with little success. What has worked for me recently though is this: focusing on keeping my right (trail) wrist hinged from the top of my backswing, as long as possible through impact. I have found that the more specific the instruction, the easier it is for me to carry out the action. In this case, the instruction is simple and direct-  keep your right hand bent back as long as possible. When I tried focusing on a more abstract swing thought like "turn your hips" , I've had a much harder time executing the movement. This video from Eric Cogorno really helped hammer in the concept of keeping the trail wrist hinged:    Who knows if this will work the same wonders for you as it has for me, but it could be something worth considering. Good luck!
