First leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs and we don't have a thread? 

We've had a 59 so far today, including nothing worse than a 4 for Scottie Scheffler.  

And DJ was 11 under through 11 holes before posting par-par on 12 and 13.  That's where he stands as I type this.  I think he's playing better on that course in reality than I remember doing on Xbox.

I see DJ is 15 under, so far. Also see, FWIW, that Tiger made the cut. Only got to see a few holes today. Hope to see more tomorrow and Sunday.

Not fair I know, but disappointed in DJ's 60. 57 was on the table.

Yeah. He choked.🤭

Was pretty bummed when I saw how flat Tiger was yesterday. Looks like it's the same story today.

Looks like the marquee group could be the first tee time of the day tomorrow - both Tiger & Rory are sliding down towards early starts on Sunday

I woke up to an alert on my phone that Tiger is in a solo 69.  I have two problems with this alert, one, that isn't how that works, and two, that isn't what I meant when I said I want Tiger to get back to his old ways.  I meant the thing where he won a ton of golf tournaments!

It figures DJ would finish birdie-eagle on Thursday & Saturday, but par-par for a 60 on Friday. :-(  

DJ's best ball score for 18 holes this week is -16 and includes five pars.

Not in the hunt, but Tiger is 5 under through 7 holes today. "Looking gooooood Billy Ray!"

Wow, Tiger almost got a no-fives round in today until he parred the par-5 18th. 

Still projected to drop a few spots in the FedEx Cup rankings, so he'll need a good week next week.  C'mon a win!

Dustin Johnson has a birdie putt coming up at a time when only one player is within 11 shots of him. 

DJ will have to settle for a front-nine 90 today, and there went his last chance to birdie #9.  A par will remain on his ringer scorecard for the week.

... and it looks like five holes (9, 13, 14, 15, 16) will remain with par as the best score for Dustin Johnson all week.

That was a freaking curb stomping this week. That dude is frightening when he's on.

DJ's win today was the closest I have felt to watching vintage Tiger in a long time.  

Tiger Woods this weekend, not so much.

I like it. DJ has two gears - indifferent and frightening. Thing is you can't tell which one is he trucking on unless you look at the scoreboard.. lol.

    • Great idea @cipher, yep I'm definitely interested.
    • Day 49 - More swings working on my new setup. 
    • Hello everyone. The golf gods have pulled me back in, and I’m hoping it will stick this time. Just scheduled my first lesson in over a decade, so maybe some financial investment will help keep me in the game. Here are a couple of swings from tonight. Now that I’m back, still working on getting more depth in the backswing.    9i DTL: 60-70 yard LW DTL: Plan is to get a couple of lessons and then a fitting. These clubs are too short and 17 years old at this point. The instructor fits Mizuno and Ping, and the new Hot Metals Pros look great. The new Ben Hogan’s are also quite attractive, but I won’t have a fitting option. 
    • As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit.    Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length.    Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too.    I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down. 
    • Augusta National giving patrons rare chance to purchase merchandise online For the first time, Augusta National is offering online shopping -- but only to patrons who are on... Seems like all of us could find someone with tickets and get Masters gear. I had a friend go in 2010 and my hat could use an upgrade.
