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.

    • Have her visit Merchant's Square near Willam and Mary. 
    • I do not know why that clip has been edited so, but my favorite part was when he wanders into the wrong door first - abuse.   One of their best, and entirely apropos. Please film that for me.   I'm quite curious about what is the down side is of simply allowing the guys to dominate the courses so that scores dip lower and lower.
    • Here in the Detroit area we are fortunate to have a good number of Ross courses, including a couple City Of Detroit Muni tracks.All the rest I am aware of are private clubs, but I have been fortunate enough to play most of them back in the 80's and 90's. Unfortunately one, Chandler Park was irreparably harmed when they built I-94 back in the 50's. But one Detroit Muni that isn't even in the City itself is still intact, Rogell Golf Course, next to the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak is a fairly unmolested Ross course. Given the entire areas lack of natural elevation changes, without excessive use of bulldozers, Ross displays his mastery of deception with false fronts etc. Country Club of Detroit (private and actually in Grosse Pointe) is a real gem,and a prime example of Ross' genius on flat landscape..
    • I have just reentered the game  in Sept. after a 22 yr hiatus. I have found the clubs I am going to stick with for a while whilst I figure out how well I will end up striking the ball. Today I played two balls off every tee, then hit two from the one I picked, etc. Still shot an 84 on a little 6300 yard track because I have only played 1 previous round with these irons, and (Mainly) my touch and feel around the greens, and especially putting need a lot of work. Mid round I changed the setting on my Taylormade SLDR driver to dead neutral (no, I didn't take a penalty for that). My worst issue with reentering the game as an old wound ball player seems to be finding a ball I like. Well, today under a leaf  I found a Bridgestone B XS with with a lot of what I have been missing with the balls they seem to make today. It was fairly easy to work, but more importantly, it had a nice, active and predictive response to spin imparted with the money clubs on shots under a full swing. I'm going to have to investigate the Bridgestone line further. The Titleist Pro V my coworkers play and got me to try was alright, I could jerk the string on full shots, but for me, it wasn't it for finesse spin on less than full shots.
