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.

Jesus. Chill dude. You’re a little too high up in Bryson’s pants there. Didn’t know 1) There are Bryson fans out there and 2) They take things so damn seriously kinda like him.

Poor Brooks.

Whoever named Lake Merced Golf Club was a bit generous with the truth. 

If you grouped Tiger with two random club pros, you still wouldn’t be able to put together a group using the rest of the field that could equal his group’s majors or PGA Tour wins totals.

I like Bryson because i prefer eccentric people playing on the PGA Tour. It makes things interesting. I would prefer if you didn't make a sweeping generalization like that.

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

 

100% this.

Brooks may have laid an egg on Sunday, but in grander scheme of things I am forced to have a high respect for his grunt strength, physical and mental. The fellow never fails to show up from all over the place at dinner (majors) time. He ain't a tap dancing entertainer but how can you deny him at least some, even if it is begrudging respect?

I am starting to lean towards liking him.

I was happy to see Bryson get right there at a shot to win with everything he's been working on. I was also happy to see Finau play loose/free compared to his other Sunday finishes where he seemed to play too safe. I'd been hoping all day that the 16th hole would decide winner and it truly did and what an incredible shot it was, well deserved for Morikawa and Bryson was really close to getting a eagle on 16 as well. Overall was really awesome golf to watch.

I agree that I think he’s good for that. He livens up the game. I just think the guy is a complete douche bag and that’s putting it nicely.  The cameraman thing rubbed me the wrong way and really put him in a negative light with me.

I like Collin. Share (kinda) the same name, good looking kid, skinny waisted, beautiful swing, bombs it. What's not to like?

Some random thoughts:

The drive on 16 reminded me of Padraig Harrington's 5 wood on the 71st hole in the Open a while back.  An unbelievable shot that just shut the door.

Lots of mask silliness.  Funniest was Morikawa sitting with his girlfriend with no one near and her wearing a mask.  I'm pretty sure they weren't going to be social distancing later on in the evening, so who or what was the mask protecting?  Kind of like Fauci standing on the pitcher's mound with no one within 60 feet wearing a mask.

I found this a very satisfying outcome. Once Tiger was out of the running I didn't think I'd care much, but I did.  Morikawa seems like a great kid.

I didn't care for all of the PGA of America virtue signalling.

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

Tiger winning is historic. Someone else is not.

Maybe he could try playing a few more shots from the fairway. Radical thought I know.

Disagree. His comments were petty and disrespectful to the other players. Then he proceeded to drop his pants and get schooled. Couldn’t have happened to a better guy.🤣

I think you are taking them way to seriously. He is having a friendly dig at some his playing colleagues. If there are not able to take a bit of light hearted ribbing from a fellow competitor, they shouldn't be playing professional sport.

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
