What is it with all these announcer’s curses?? First they say Gary Woodland’s the only player in the field to not make a bogey yet, only for him to make one on the next hole, then they say jokingly, “Let’s see if we can curse someone else.”, then Finau duffs a chip and makes bogey. Well, maybe not the second one as much as the first.

If there are no spectators, why are there still so many tents? And I see some stands around the greens?

Hey, I actually saw graffiti on a live golf broadcast and it wasn’t some art exhibit. 

Is this major one where the course is closest to an actual city? You can hear a lot of city noises.

Is it me? The announcers keep cutting each other off. I get Strange is working remotely though.

That depends on your opinion of how you'd categorize San Francisco. 

But by contrast, the L.A. Open at Riviera is held way away from the city of Los Angeles.

There is no crowd noise/murmur to drown out the city noises.  See city, hear city.

On the short par-4, it looked like they had a crowd.  A small crowd, like a dozen people, but there were people.

Tiger birdies #16.  If he birdies his next 38 consecutive, he has a good chance to win this thing.

I was pumped to watch Charl Schwartzel make his 20ft putt on his last hole to make the cut.

Was rooting for him on that one. I’d like to see him make some sort of comeback to relevance

    • I have a TheraGun knockoff; KRAFT. Have had it for two years now. It is quiet (60dba); has three speeds 1800, 2100, 2400 - I usually use 1800 with the ball attachment. Once a day minimum I use it all over - well what I can reach - soles of my feet, calf muscles, front and back of upper legs, glutes, upper back - particularly the area between neck and shoulder and about 6 inches down. I will also take it to the course and use on the upper back - as that tends to tighten up during the round. Here is a youtube video by Bob & Brad (Physical Therapists) - they post lots of helpful videos.       
    • It’s kind of a weird situation, though, because the guy improved to the point that he wouldn’t even qualify for the flight he’s already in. I’m assuming the competition is gross scoring within the flight.
    • 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.
