I’m not sure about these posts. You don’t post like a normal person.

Are you referring to 'Osbourne's' posts?

What's up with this craziness???
 

Quote

The tee box on the seventh hole could be home to long waits. And players dodging incoming missiles from the sixth tee. The sixth green and seventh tee box are so close that one could literally putt a ball off the sixth green to the seventh tee box without making a shoulder turn.

“It’ll be interesting with a back left pin on 6, in case somebody just tugs it,” said four-time major winner and two-time PGA champion Brooks Koepka. “We’re right in the firing zone. It is what it is. I can’t do anything about it.

“It’s the way the golf course is set up.”

Sorry, I was not clear in my post.

US PGA :

Bryson DeChambeau - withdrawn (struggling with his Left wrist).

Brooks Koepka - 33/1

British Open - St Andrews :

Bryson DeChambeau - 22/1

Brooks Koepka - 16/1

However, trusting Bryson's left wrist is recovered, I'm backing Bryson to win at St Andrews.  His game is made for St Andrews.  With the Driver, he is as close a replica to Jack Nicklaus as any current professional.  Jack Nicklaus overpowered St Andrews twice - 1970 and 1978.  Bryson DeChambeau is probably better with the driver, than even 'The Bear.'

Also, John Daly over powered St Andrews to win in 1995.

A fit Bryson DeChambeau should win at St Andrews 2022.  

That makes more sense.

In fact, John Daly is currently leading the tournament at 2 under, with birdies on 1 and 5 and pars on the other holes, having played 6.  Admittedly very early in the day with many not even having teed off, but should make for an interesting round.  I don't think Daly can sustain this play over 72 holes, but who knows.

Daly at -2 after 6 holes. He still has a lot of speed in him, started the day by splitting the fairway at #1 with a 344 yard-drive.

Can't see how he can keep this up, but impressive start still.

If you are in any of these countries, it looks like you can stream it free. I wonder that it's officially stated like this is a wink wink to the more tech minded.

Spoiler

I set my VPN's location to India and am able to stream, the announcers are not ESPN+. If you search ESPN and PGA on Twitter, the comments are generally negative.

PGA 1st round early finishers :

Leader - Mcllroy - 65 for -5.

John Daly - 72 for +2.  3 birdies, 10 pars, 5 bogies.

Spieth - 72 for +2.

Woods - 74 for +4.

 

John Daly, 7 off the lead!  Hopefully he gets through the cut line tomorrow.

Looking forward to seeing John Daly at St Andrews.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Rory win a major again. It’s been eight years since his last.

Yes, Rory fancies his chances at 'The British - St Andrews.'  He will have the US PGA as well, thank you very much!  Great round today.  Of course it is just the Masters he needs for the 'Grand Slam.'  He will win at Augusta at some point.  Did well there in 2022.  Very powerful chap with probably the best swing currently on the USPGA Tour.

Anyone know how much practice round tickets cost this year? Just curious. The cheapest no frills ticket.

Pity about Bryson withdrawing.  Hopefully he will be ready for US Open 16 - 19 June and British Open 14 - 17 July.  St Andrews will be a good fit for his game.  The English golf fans are keen to see Bryson.  22/1 with British bookmakers to win the St Andrews Open. 

Brooks Koepka, playing with Lowry and Scott, is 33/1 in UK to win the US PGA.  Could he do well?

St Andrew’s ain’t in England pal 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

The first time in a long time that Rory has gotten off to a good start in a major.  7 birdies and 2 bogeys to lead a major.  He has mostly done well on days 3 and 4 when he has been far behind.  His mindset seems to have improved and consistency is there in all facets of the game.  Looking forward to him increasing his major count

Lots of announcer speak about the type of sand in the bunkers and how the pros were "struggling" with it. That sand looked good to me but then I'm used to sand, this year, that's so wet it's more like clay.

Sorry that Tiger's in pain but I guess I'm not too surprised. I think he's damn lucky to be on a course at all.

    • I really like this video.  1) They talk a bit about how feel isn't real. Tiger really gets into that. Morikawa talking about how you have to make a feel your own.  2) I like Tiger's discussion on hitting a spot and being aggressive. His spot might be 40-FT let of the pin, but he is aggressive hitting it there. He isn't trying to guide a shot there. I like this way of thinking. It's knowing all the information, and always been very committed to where you want the ball to end up, and 99% of the time it probably shouldn't be aiming at the flag. In the end, hit a shot you are confident in hitting. This probably helps a lot when you have a shot with a lot of hazards around. Focus on where you want the ball to end up, and be confident in hitting the ball there.     
    • 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.
