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.

    • I’ve never tinkered with swing weight before, and when I build a set of irons I usually just settle for the feel of the clubs as-built with the idea that I’ll eventually get used to the different feel. That said, my main set of irons feels perfect to me (probably just familiarity with them), and adjusting swing weight is something I’d like to be able to do in the future to make my other sets feel closer to them. I’ve just never invested the time to work on it. 
    • Day 321 Did mirror work on takeaway/backswing piece, and then hit balls with 7-iron and 3W working on hip turn piece. 
    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it. 
    • @ajl, it seems to me that what you're asking isn't about the performance or design differences between one set of irons from one manufacturer versus another, but simply what the difference between a premium set of golf clubs and a generic or a knockoff set is? The answer, as in all products in life, comes down to quality. A premium manufacturer cares if their manufacturing process produces X% variation from club to club which can result in differences in performance from set to set. A clone company won't and they know their customers don't, so they don't invest the time or money into having higher manufacturing tolerances.
