That means he didn't pull out...

You're misunderstanding. This is a basic rule re: relief from a penalty area, and you get several options (outside of "play it as it lies"): within two club lengths of the point of entry (red pe

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.

Today is a big letdown, as I realize this event goes Friday-Monday ☹️

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.

    • Interesting stuff here..
    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.
