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.

Ya man...me too. It seems like he just can’t simply hit the ball very well some days. Like stinky shots all the time.

I don’t get it

I’m a Spieth fan as well, and I’m also disappointed that he didn’t play well. One of the reasons I root for him is he’s a local guy. I’m from Durham, NC, and he’s from Raleigh. Another reason is he just seems like a good guy to hang out around.

I’m also a Tiger fan, and I was thrilled when I saw he was -2 through four holes and pretty much stayed either there or one under and finished with 68. If he gets on track, I think we’ll see his name on another trophy come Sunday evening.

Really solid start from Bryson.

 

Wait...did he just like lean on his driver to pick up his tee and snap the head off of the shaft?

He looked devastated, especially as he was just carrying it around

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

I wish he would just hit 3W stingers down the middle. So tired of him having a shitty lie for his approach.

He’s from Dallas, TX.

So who are you taking about?

That seemed like a very strange decision for DeChambeau to just timidly punch that ball out.

I always thought he was from England, like Rory

Maybe it was someone else I was told who was from Raleigh. Well, either way, I still like the guy.

Brendon T just hit a drive at a 151 mph ball speed. How the hell does he compete on tour let alone win?

... how do you break a driver, and did that count as being broken in the course of play or is it like when AK was bouncing it on a sprinkler head?

The shaft just failed when he was picking up a tee, so that’s fine he can replace it.

Pretty funny post round interview when BD immediately praised the shaft brand for being able to replace it and perform on the spot...lol. I mean...it just snapped.

    • 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.
    • It's up to the Committee to decide, in advance, and publish for the competitors, what the rules are around handicaps.  What any of us thinks is "right" should be overruled by the specific rules of the competition.  Now if I'm on that Committee, I would want to use the handicap as of the date of the match, but I'm not the one making the decisions.
    • Thanks for that info. I recently injured my left knee (I'm a righty) and tried to continue playing with a brace on and then added a cortisone shot. I finally wound up with gel injection which does help with pain relief except that my brain doesn't want to fully shift weight back ro the left side. The injury is not structural, it was a re-injury of a 6 year old meniscus tear that I had 2 months of intense PT on and had not been a concern since until post-Covid return to play. My golf swing stops without releasing my body because of weakness and lack of stability. So I tried a foot flare on my left side, between 35-40 degrees. A much smaller flare on right foot, and I opened my shoulders a bit to accommodate. In practice swings without a ball it feels much better and I can swing through. Does that sound right? I will try it at the range because I am stumped getting "through" the ball otherwise.
