A LOT of my favorite guys are not in the Tour Championship this year. Along with Rory maybe not being in it. I won't have the interest like I used to. Still am no Dustin Johnson fan and I think he is going to dominate this tournament. Would be shocked if the winner is anybody other than him.

Can't wait for this.  It's a weird one, for sure;  the reigning Masters champion didn't even qualify!  I wonder how many Tour Championships there have been since the advent of the FedEx Cup where the reigning Masters Champion didn't qualify.  Did the reigning UKBO or USO champions qualify?  I'd have to check.  I believe the reigning PGA Champ did qualify.

Me too. I checked the PGA Tour App and it lists DJ at -10. I thought I missed the first round.

The reigning Masters, US Open and Open Championship winners are all not in this event, nor are 4 of the top 20 in OWGR - Fleetwood, Fitzpatrick, Woods, Rose (though I don't think that is unusual as guy who primarily play the Euro tour don't qualify)

"That birdie moves him to one under, nine back of the lead."  Still so weird to hear, but it reminds me of a great trivia point.

When was the first time on the PGA Tour that tournaments in consecutive weeks were won by a Palmer and a Watson?

Most people would guess in the 60s or 70s, and they'd be wrong -- they're thinking of Arnold Palmer, whose final PGA Tour win was the 1973 Bob Hope, and Tom Watson, whose first PGA Tour win was the 1974 Western Open.  So it wasn't them.

It was Ryan and Bubba in January 2010 (Sony Open and Bob Hope).

It is interesting to watch these guys play short shots out of the green side Bermuda...something those of us who play in this area are all too familiar with.

Did Rory improve his lie on 18 when he duffed it in the water?  Moving back out of the rough to the fairway.  Didn’t Tiger get called out for doing the same at the Masters a few years ago?  Looked strange to me.

You aren't required to drop anywhere but in the general area. I haven't seen it yet but it sounds like Rory dropped within the relief area and in the general area. Perfectly fine.

Tiger (that was me, btw) dropped intentionally two yards back when he was required to drop as near as possible to the spot from which he played the previous spot.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
