I was talking to someone on Wednesday about who would be in contention and I said you know, Reed could pop out of nowhere.

Not liking what I see in T-1.

JT, Douchambeu, P Reed 🤢

Not JT anymore after his last few holes.

Rory could miss the cut here! 

Cut is +7 or so right now.  Rory is nowhere near that.

Simpson sneaking up there. This just feels like his kind of conditions like Olympic. He’s always reminded me of Scott Simpson. Just sneaks up there in Majors.

Just realized that Captain America is paired with Spieth.....I'm shocked Spieth is talking to him.

Anyone remember the d*uchery of Top 5 signing Spieth's neck with a Sharpie a few years ago at the PGA Championship?

Too bad Top 5 didn't try that stunt with Koepka....Brooks would have punched him out right in front of the kids seeking autographs.🤣

Rules officials better be keeping a close eye on that DeChambeau/Reed pairing tomorrow. Don’t let them get away with any funny business, now.

I'm not a fan of Reed but actually that's pretty funny.  Spieth is inundated with fans wanting autographs... nobody wants Reed's autograph so he says to himself, "I'll just sign this here neck."  So tomorrow, when he plays with DeChambeau, there will be more room on the neck for signing.

Okay seriously Tiger, wth? I mean I didn’t expect much from him this week but never saw +13 coming. Really disappointing.

Still hanging onto that top 5 comment from what... 7 years ago now?  🙄

It’s 6.47 pm in NY right?? So that makes it a 5h20min+ round for Tiger et al.. I’m almost glad I was at work.

Yeah, and his decisions on 18 were surprising to me.

Not surprised. Put $10 on him at 33-1. Also put $10 on Todd, $10 on Fleetwood and $10 on Berger so at least I may have hit gold with one. I would prefer Todd to win since I have him at 80-1 and Reed at 33-1.

This was about day 1 love that was shown by the course.

...and we are going to see a US Open this weekend. 😄

It's not available on Roku. NBC and Roku haven't come to an agreement for a contract.

Also, unrelated and just IMHO, but everything Apple sucks sweaty bunghole. 

I just got it through my cable service. They kind of suck sweaty socks too, but not in this instance.

Peacock inked a deal with Roku. Not soon enough to watch the USO on a Roku though. There’s always next year.

Not sure anyone watched the coverage until the very end, but it was pretty cool to see the lights on at Winged Foot last night and guys finishing in the dark. Reminded me of the Battle at Bighorn. The three guys probably wouldn't have finished if they were a little closer to the cut. Was cool to see, though.

    • I got a new net and mat so I can do some testing with the Mevo this off-season. I want to have a much more accurate understanding of my carry distances. I will hopefully do some work with the driver as well. I will also be able to continue some Evolvr lessons into the spring, and then just do monthly checks throughout the summer with my instructor to make sure I am not regressing with any of the priorities. Second part of the Mevo work is to figure out which 3 of these clubs will make the bag. I plan to also keep a standard 4 iron and will get some numbers on that. I only have 2 wedges after my PW so I have room for three clubs. I’d rather have the versatility up at the top end of the clubs anyway. I’ll try to get some numbers and post them here to make the decision on which 3 clubs I will be keeping in the bag. Lofts are 20, 19, 18 and 15.5.
    • In the US the threat is about 69 deaths per 100,000 population (Johns Hopkins University). Pretty small but expect it would increase some if we just unlocked everything.  I am not in favor of lockdowns, they do more damage than the virus would do.  I am in favor of reasonable (problem is who defines reasonable) restrictions on some activities.  In the specific case of golf, I mentioned what is being done in this area in my first post.  Seems like these are reasonable and not much of an effort for the courses to do. 
    • Employees must not be too happy about the move. Unlike Orlando, golf in Connecticut is extremely poor to non-existent December through March. Hope they bring their indoor golf simulators with them.😉
    • I just use my iPhone. There are adapters for tripods. Others just mount their phone or camera on their bag. Bag height is good because it’s hand height. In a practice session, I will set up either face on or down the line and check camera angles. DTL I will lay a club along my toe line and aim the camera there. Then I film that side. I will do driver and 6 or 7 iron and maybe wedges. Then switch to the other view and repeat. It takes a little practice, but once you’ve done it a few times, it’s easy. Try not to fuss about getting a perfect swing. Ones that feel good or bad actually look pretty similar. You want your Evolvr instructor to see what you have. I will set up, but not film until I’m warm and ready to film the drill or swing. Lastly, trim the video down. I post it to YouTube and just put the link in Evolvr. You don’t have to worry about file size that way. I post as unlisted and full HD.
    • I get it. Didn't go do a fitting. I ordered the clubs with the same specs from my last fitting. Only thing I changed was going from Project X LZ 5.5 to Accura I80 stiff shafts.
