Mito Pereira leads the 2022 PGA Championship through Saturday afternoon, but a free drop has caused controversy with announcers and fans alike. On the ninth hole, Pereira hit a tee shot that drifted left into...

Uhmmm, sometimes the Rules can help you out. They're the same for everyone, and he did nothing wrong here.

Learn the Rules of Golf, people. They can save you shots, too.

I’m tuned in again it looks like they front loaded the ads during the first 9 there are fewer ads during back 9.

I think its the right call. I respect the attempt, but he just doesnt look healthy enough yet.

I guess I lost my bet that Tiger would win by12 strokes? Good for him. Took guts to play in pain. Takes guts for a guy like him to withdraw. 
Now, c’mon Bubba!

Ugh, just heard the announcer say that on a short par-4, you always have to lay up and choose an angle.  This after a poor shot by (I think) Pereira on the 9th.  What year is it?  Not that it was true in the past, but at least in the past they had an excuse for believing it.

right?? it's wild how little the announcers and analysts have updated their golf knowledge. I still hear incorrect comments about the ball flight lights!

It really is.  I have sort of accepted that people aren't going to get the ball flight laws right, but I still expect they'll get things like expected value right.  I hope my making a distinction between applied math and physics doesn't cause some controversy. ;-)  But I do think at least the math should be easier to correct.

Sometimes they do get the math right. I can’t remember what tournament it was or which broadcast team, but they had an interesting graphic showing the expected SG on a short par 4, and without fail the closer to the green the ball was the more strokes gained the player, well, gained. Wish they did that stuff more

Really!  It'd be so much easier to get right.

I just saw Justin Thomas hit his third at 16, from a greenside bunker.  After he stepped out of the bunker (after hitting a great shot), he lifted each foot in succession and smacked the shoe with his wedge.  I do this too (in my case, after I rake and am done in the bunker;  I assume his caddie will rake).  I wonder where I picked up the habit.

Just watched the last hour on catch up and am finally up to speed. Some very nervy golf today.

    • Shifts illegal Pitch clock Bigger bases That about it, right? They're all fine. Though I wish with the shift nonsense that hitters could just "hit it where they ain't."
    • Nabbed a birdie on 8 today, down to 2 left, which of course are 2 of my toughest to birdie.
    • Birdied 18 at Whispering Woods today after: Didn't play the tenth (took a par for GHIN). Missing a 15-footer on 11. Missing a 20-footer on 12. Missing a chip-in on 13 (tap-in par). Missing a 25-footer on 14. Missing a 10-footer on 15. Missing a 10-footer on 16. Missing a 20-footer on 17. (To be fair [or make an excuse] I didn't warmup putt, and the greens were slow because of the heat, so I kept over-reading the break on the putts.) I hit almost every putt just about how I wanted. The putt on 18 was about 20 feet. I drove it through the fairway and the ball was about 18" above my feet. I told my playing partner how weirdly good I am from those types of lies. It was also about 10 yards farther than I typically hit the club I used. Hit it to 20 feet dead online, and he was putting about ten feet behind the hole (he'd already putted out, was just hitting another putt) so I asked him to stop because I wanted to get ONE birdie out of the round. So I'm glad I did.
    • What I'm Working On: Getting the hands down quicker to prevent right wrist from "rolling over" Swing Thoughts: Throwing the hands back behind me to start transition. Feeling as though body transitions toward target while hands start moving down and away I moved away from the feeling of dropping my hands at the transition as that seemed to only make my arms feel even my stuck on the downswing. I read through my Evolvr thread and this one and decided to go back to what my previous swing thought that was more of an active throwing action then just letting my arms drop. I got two range sessions in during this time and things are definitely starting to feel better swing-wise Ball Flight (7i): Now I was getting more pull draws where as before when trying to just drop the hands almost all were slight pulls with a heavy fade. I also chunked a 5 or so shots. I would imagine this was due to now having enough weight on front foot but I notice when I try to get my hands down quicker I am more likely to chunk it.    - This was a pretty big pull draw but doesn't seem like I have quite as much rollover action around impact. Could be wrong though.   Takeaways - When I felt more "connected" in my backswing (feeling of keeping arms in front of chest) my impact seemed to improve drastically but realized this on my last couple swings so haven't tested any further - Overall, my impact and swing as whole FEEL a lot better these last two range sessions so I think I'm on the right track. I even had a couple shots I pured where you can hear the crisp sizzle after impact and the ball just cuts through the air. Which I was yet to feel this year before this - Going to continue working on throwing hands down faster as well as not letting arms travel too much across my chest in the backswing, which should in turn help shorten my backswing a bit
