The US Open is shared with The Golf Channel and NBC. Golf Channel you pay for with subscription and NBC coverage is free. If you cant "watch" the golf, and subscribe to Sirius Satellite Radio, the PGATOUR Radio channel coverage is excellent. In the UK the TV coverage is NOT free. They must pay for it on their SKY Cable subscription or listen to highlights on BBC Radio, which is free.

I'd like to think these guys are mentally strong enough to understand that the situation will be different and if they don't shoot under par that it won't be a bad thing.

You know I'm rooting for Tiger but let's go Phil!!!!

If Tiger misses the cut I honestly wouldn't mind Fil winning.

Completely out on Phil after what he did at the U.S. Open a few years back. Was out on him at the start, started to like him, and then he did a few things including hitting the rolling ball and bullshitted after that, so I'm fully back out again.

He took the 2-stroke penalty, so what's the big deal?  How's it any different than any other breach of the rules?  Could've been worse; he could've thrown a club and hit a fan like others have.

Luv FIGJAM....he's too funny.

Saw this Amstel Light and Lefty commercial on GC this week...though it was released back in Feb...it's too funny...but the shorter version is better...but I can't find it.....enjoy.

I’m not re-litigating that. It was an incredibly douchey move and his comments after the fact were even more so.

If I were Nick Faldo or Paul Azinger, Id be nervous about my job. Both NBC and CBS are gonna make a push for Phil just like they did Tony Romo in the NFL. He’s got the personality to succeed in that position and I think he’d consider doing it part-time for now, full-time down the road.

Phil seems like a phony to me. I used to be neutral on him, but now with his social media persona and the ridiculous sunglasses, can't stand him.

If I were to guess, I’d say NBC makes the bigger push. I don’t know if they’re thrilled with Zinger and Phil/Feherty would be entertaining. Plus NBC doesn’t air in the meat of the season. They do mostly the Florida swing, Opens, and Fed Ex playoffs.

Honestly, I think it was a pretty severe breach of etiquette.  It was petty and he had given up.

I do like his general personality. That stunt though was annoying.

Yeah, maybe. I don’t know. Didn’t really change my opinion of him any which has always been pretty neutral. There’s parts of Phil I like and parts I don’t.  I think the commentator Phil just suits him well and would be popular with fans. Him and Feherty would be great on NBC given their dry humor.

 

I’m very surprised with Tiger and Rory but it’s a good surprise. Thought both these guys would be well over-par by now. Still worried about tomorrow though. Have a feeling by the end of it no one will be under par. Tomorrow looks brutal.

    • Day 122.  More carpet putting;  larger room, a bit more time, different spot, same ruler.  I am beginning to think bead is not the problem with my putting. 
    • Great idea @cipher, yep I'm definitely interested.
    • Day 49 - More swings working on my new setup. 
    • Hello everyone. The golf gods have pulled me back in, and I’m hoping it will stick this time. Just scheduled my first lesson in over a decade, so maybe some financial investment will help keep me in the game. Here are a couple of swings from tonight. Now that I’m back, still working on getting more depth in the backswing.    9i DTL: 60-70 yard LW DTL: Plan is to get a couple of lessons and then a fitting. These clubs are too short and 17 years old at this point. The instructor fits Mizuno and Ping, and the new Hot Metals Pros look great. The new Ben Hogan’s are also quite attractive, but I won’t have a fitting option. 
    • As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit.    Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length.    Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too.    I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down.
