Concerning this Bryson OB thing, Bryson did ask about why Phil was able to hit from the other side of the fence.

So why was Phil allowed to do so?

i know it was a mesh fence. So my guess is that it has no posts and the boundary is literally where each part of the mesh touches the grass.

No, it had posts. Mesh doesn't just stand up on its own. And I think you're thinking of the wrong thing… more later.

The simple answer is this: Phil's ball was in bounds. Bryson's was not.


Here's the mesh one. You can see the posts, and the mesh "folds" in a little bit, so that's why the ball is likely in bounds.

Here's the one I think Bryson was actually talking about. You can see at the beginning that the officials measured with a string.

I'm still amazed at the change of course condition in just a few days. I know Jack intentionally wanted to make the course firm, but man, the heat wave we're in here in central Ohio has really made it tough. In a days time, the greens are already looking pretty terrible. Not sure about anyone else, but it gives me a boost of confidence to actually see the world's best golfers struggle much the same as me at times.

Looking forward to final round coverage today. I'm sure approach shots and putting will be similar to hitting balls into the IKEA parking lot.

I think Bryson did say to the official ‘Mesh fence’ but I think he was confusing the two scenarios you posted. He mixed up the situation with the type of fence.

I forget, does making a 7 affect whether one is still "in it" for the no sixes challenge?  Because it affects if Tiger can still get that award today :-(

Rahm is having a low event round after starting with a four shot lead.

I’m hoping his temper explodes and this gets interesting again...

He made the turn with an 8 shot lead, started the second nine bogey-double-par, Ryan Palmer plays the same stretch one under, could get interesting.

Annnnd this is why Finau has one win on the PGA TOUR. Shame...I like him but boy does he choke.

I like Finau....I guess I've not followed him closely.....never knew he was a CHOKER....and he's been choking on Sunday too.

BUT

Rambo is choking a bit too...though the conditions are really tough...would Rahm be choking more if he didn't have a large lead?

The greens are baked out...though they've already started to tear them up even before the event has ended....obviously Muirfield must be financially ok...considering the cost of reno's.

Yeah I’ve never been much of a fan. Country club kid...golf path laid out for him. Respect for his talent of course but many struggles he never had to deal with. Boring to say the least.

Whoa...Did you guys see Rahm’s ball move when he set his club behind the ball on that flop shot? @iacas?

Now they’re talking about it....but I thought it has to be noticeable by human eye and not camera?

I saw that when it happened and called it! Now Rahm knows what it’s like to be Tiger.

That’s a hard one to notice from the players perspective. Can you call it in real time?? I think it moved, tilted slightly..... I wouldn’t be surprised if that is seen as a non penalty by the tournament ref though.

I don’t think that is able to be seen by any person’s perspective without camera aid.

I am not a John Rahm fan but that was not a Patrick Reed moment...

With the long rough that probably happened 100 times this week, but no cameramen were doing close-ups.  Must have been Bryson's favorite camera guy.  😀

He was the son of a country club employee.

    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
    • Have you ever gotten a club fitting? I also launch the ball lower than ideal and part of that is my swing, part of that was the shaft I was playing. I wonder if changing to a higher lofted driver will cause you to hit the ball with more spin and you wouldn't see any gains in distance.
    • 15 signs you watch too much golf on TV | Golf World | Golf Digest Are you a TV golf addict? Then you're probably showing some of these symptoms. As much as I hate slideshows, please link the original article when posting these things, @ChetlovesMer.
    • I thought I saw that picture in a post office. Other than that, nothing controversial. I do celebrate the comments on how there is a place in golf for a wide variety of swings. That has made a comeback and this golf fan appreciates the diversity and individuality of the looks.
