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.

    • I have a “low” launch angle too, and my driver is 9.5°. If you don’t mind my asking what shaft do you have in your driver? You may not need a 16° Driver, it could be the shaft has too high of a flex point. But I’ve heard of higher lofted drivers though they can be hard to come by these days.
    • This season I was consistently shooting in the high 80s. Played some of my best golf and I am really happy with how straight I am hitting the ball right now. The ONE thing I would change in my game is simply the height of my drives.    I hit about a hundred balls today on trackman and with the driver I am getting average clubhead speed of 120 mph, launch angle 7 degrees, 268 yds carry. It’s bugging the hell out of me to see these low bullet balls, and despite trying all this year to deliver more loft (I’ve had a few lessons trying to fix just this issue alone), I just can’t seem to do it.  I currently play a stiff shaft Taylormade R1 set to 12 degrees loft. I’m thinking about possibly experimenting with one of those super lofted (16 degree) drivers. Has anyone ever tried this, and if so did it actually make a difference? In advance I just want to also say, yes, I agree an equipment fix in this case is a bandaid for a larger problem. But I’m also just trying to have fun with my game and if buying a higher lofted driver helps this problem, I’m happy to take it for now.  
    • Day 129.  During the workday, went to the next door room to hit some 6-iron shots;  indoors, off a mat, into a net, real balls. 
    • Day 320 Superspeed workout, then some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and finally hit some balls with 7-iron. Hit the ball well today. Still searching for a good feel/thought to take on course for backswing piece. Current one is okay, but I think I can come up with something better.
