I enjoyed that Reed and BAD were in the lead after 36 - must've really torqued off the old crotchety types.

Fun tourney.  BAD's putter got hot and he did better out of the rough than most.  Solid major win.  Good for him.  I like that he's trying to think through the approach to the game.  Happy that he's very slightly marginally starting to get a little quicker at it.  Almost there.

Kid still needs some coaching in his interviews - He doesn't need to prove himself in those, just thank the team and let your wins speak for themselves....

If you're gonna be long, you better be accurate.  It's pretty amazing what the long hitters in the game are accomplishing with needing a tighter distribution.

I'm pretty sure I'd rather be 150 from the fairway rather than 80 from 3-6 inch rough.  That takes some serious (insert whatever here) to make that tradeoff flip to the rough.

Yeah, no Tiger or other real stars to pull in viewers and up against football - tough sell.

To be honest if I were a fan of any other NFL team besides the Jets, I probably would have switched back and forth.  I'm also not a fantasy person but there's a ton who are who won't be watching golf when they have their fantasy team to worry about or bets to make.

Not a good long term trend.

 

Hopefully next year will be back to June and the trend will move back up.

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.

Who's holding a grudge?....not me.....good nicknames last a lifetime.

They also made it extremely difficult to watch/find the first days. I didn't get to watch a single minute live, and didn't care to jump trhough hoops to do so.

How can anyone look at ratings of really anything for 2020? 2020 is a shit-filled dumpster fire.

If 25 years from now someone says, "Oh yeah, 2020 was a good year", I'm gonna pop them.

I know the CEO of Purell. He could certainly say — and mean — this. 😛

Yes, I should have gone on to say that people who profited this year would probably think of it as a good year... monetarily.  Thinking even Joe Kanfer would have given up profits in exchange for no Covid-19, no pandemic.  Ask him that one day, in a hypothetical way.  I'd be curious about his answer.

    • My wife and I will be staying there also. She will be sightseeing at Colonial Williamsburg while the rest of us are golfing.

    • Thanks guys, yeah that is definitely something to consider if I go down that route about the pairing and tags for sure @Missouri Swede.
    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]
