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’ll give you a little inside information. The ZX series of irons, woods, hybrids, and utilities will be released in the US in January 2021. (You may be able to procure a set from Europe prior to then, but I don’t really want to pay an import fee). First welcome to TST. Secondly what exactly are you looking for when it comes to ball-flight. I play C-Taper 125S in my irons to try to bring my ball flight down, but I still have 110 foot peak height, who would have thunk it. Here’s an out of the box suggestion that might help your decision, see if you can find a 7-iron 785 head on EBay (I’m not sure you can but it’s worth a shot), or buy 2 identical Maltby TE Forged 7-irons, if they have Project X get one with 6.5 hard-stepped and one with 7.0 soft-stepped. Go to the range and see if you notice a difference. Most importantly. It’s probably not that big of a deal at our handicap level. We can shoot 85 about as easily as we can shoot 70. Sharpen your tools and learn to play boring golf. It’ll change the way you play the game.
    • Recently I have been doing something I haven’t done in a while. Avoiding blow-up rounds. I have been playing the kind of golf I’ve wanted to always play. Boring. Pedestrian. Stay out of the shit, call the zoo kind of rounds. Ho-hum kind of golf. The last round I shot in the 80s was in August and that was an 81. My last five rounds have been 73, 76, 78, 73, 71. The last one was pretty boring. I had back to back bogeys on the 2nd and 3rd holes, then birdied the 5th and 6th (pedestrian birdie at 5, 2 putt at the par 5 after a 3-wood on the green straight into the fan from 235 yards) Nearly drove the 395-yard 6th (relax it was straight downwind and as the crow flies its only 340), got up and down for birdie. Then made 12 boring pars in a row for an even-par 71. 12 GIR, 18 nGiR, putted average. I guess I’ve learned how to be that boring golfer. I’ve been fighting a bit of a hook, so I said, “The hell with it, it’s what I’ve got. I’ll just adjust my target accordingly”. I guess having a one-way miss is a good problem to have.
    • Day 121.  More carpet putting;  ruler, putter, real balls.  Getting some decent speed ones past the 36" marker consistently. 
    • Day 48 - Moved my mat indoors, took some swings working on my new setup.
