Wind is supposed to die down throughout the day but not sure it matters. Greens are getting brown and very fast. Gonna be a battle today regardless of wind.

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

Is that you Justine?😁

You gotta a better nickname for Captain America?

I think there will be some separation today. I think a couple of the guys at the top will hang around -2 or -3 while most of the others go south. Tends to happen on tough courses.

I hope they're keeping a real close eye on Cheatin' Fatrick with this deep rough that he doesn't get a magically improving lie...

That low left drive that maxed at 48 feet in height by Thomas on 2 I am so familiar with. 

The weather and wind seem to be keeping De Chambeau from the mammoth 350 yard drives he made in the heat of summer.

Careful.  I think the Chicago Cubs might have that phrase registered as a trademark.

Guess Wolff saw Morikawa win and said I need to get going. I always said a Morikawa-Wolff rivalry is the next thing in golf. Two very contrasting styles but similarly great games.

OK, DeChambeau made me eat my words. 

It’ll be interesting if it comes down to DeChambeau / Wolff in the end. 

Reed is not well liked but it’s cool watching a guy who can’t overpower a course find a way to score. 

I noticed a few mistakes by announcers with player scores. A couple off center camera shots because mistimed cutaways. 

Is anyone remote announcing on this telecast?

I chip around my back yard everyday. When  my grass gets a bit on the longer side I struggle to keep the ball from moving when I come even close to grounding my club, and my yard is nowhere near as lush as at the open. Shocked these players don’t cause the ball to move more often in this rough, especially how close the club seems to get the ball at address. They must not get as close as it looks.

If he wins I’m gonna enjoy those salty tears of yours.  If he doesn’t, so be it.  I don’t hold 7 year grudges on young athletes who display a little overconfidence, even if it comes out as cocky.

Can't believe I am saying this but feeling for Reed at the moment. Doods unraveling it seems. 

Wolff winning this rough consistently is crazy good. Wow.

A lot of guys missing the fairway bypassing driver going with iron. 

If it’s Wolff - DeChambeau, final pair with not “typical” looking swings is cool.

    • 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.
