Pretty excited for this, more than I thought I would be. Although this morning I also realized how much I missed those few days of The Open Championship when I could wake up super early and watch major golf before work, and the tradition of watching the Honorary starters at The Masters.

None of that matters, a major golf championship is about to start 👍

I just don’t get why the first major of the year isn’t accessible to everyone from start to finish. ESPN+? Wtf?

 I felt same way, but for $5, eh.  Nothing better to do today.  Coverage on TV doesn't start for 5 hours.  I'll turn off my subscription after this week.

Annoying for sure. Luckily I just found out that when I signed up for Disney+ for my kids at the start of Coronavirus shelter in place/school closures back in March, it came bundled with ESPN+ and Hulu+.

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.

Thanks I love it. 

It's like Sam and Homer Sneed are the pair of brothers who have won the most total titles on the PGA Tour between them, and Homer won once.

Yep, Dumb!  No fans at events, this should be on TV, not streaming on some PPV or subscription.

It's amusing to me how the Masters, whose course is arguably one of the hardest major championship courses to get permission to play (possibly the hardest), is the most accessible viewing, both in terms of options and low cost.

And as far as air density....it’s fun and entertaining to think there’s a difference.

Maybe even two groups?

Not a meaningful difference...and certainly not HUGE. Which was my original point that you seemed to agree with then got caught up with BD pseudoscience stuff. 
The quote from the Instagram is 100% nonsense. BD will not have a HUGE advantage due the temperature being 50* period. Zero discussion. None.🙂

I really, REALLY can't stand Tiger's penchant for following up big birdies with momentum killing bogeys.

I turned on the tv to see a golfer who looked like a 12 handicap at address. He then hit it to an inch.

It turned out to be Brenden Steele!

My god, he looked awful getting into his setup. What the heck!

In fairness, that 8th is a really tough hole. Schauffele, Cauley and Z. Johnson are all tied for 2nd and each of them bogeyed the 8th as well.

As a 12 handicap who sometimes looks awful getting into his setup, thank you for giving me hope!

I'm the biggest Jordan Spieth fan but man did he play like sh!t today. He was horrific. Time for some changes in swing coach and caddie. He needs someone else's perspective on his game.
