I’m rooting for Zalatoris today. A debut winner would be fun.

You know what is confusing to me is that nobody chose him to win?:content:

I'll give a free TST towel to the first person who names the winner (full name, not just last name) and the correct winning score in relation to par. Only one entry per person, and your first ent

The most important part of the Masters Tournament has just been decided.  I'm there for the lobster & corn fritters, miso-marinated sea bass and the peach cobbler.

Liver, fava beans and a nice chianti.

I’m going with Will Zalatoris at -12. Competition still open? 😁

Yes, but not the one for the towel ;-) 

What a save that would have been for Hideki at #1.

Fame and recognition will do.

Lots of action on the first few holes for the last groups out.

You can make your own.  Your chef can find the recipe on-line.

We make it every year. It’s really easy to make.

Me, too! Since BDC couldn’t hit the broad side of the barn if he was inside. Loser.

Matsuyama looking good out there so far with even for the day after five, while the others except Zalatoris are dropping shots.

Too bad the rookie is all we have to give this a go. The ‘big names’ are all hacking it up out there. Guess nobody is gonna get the profound ‘ Faldo luck’ to take this one.

I’m rooting for Hideki, but I enjoy Zalatoris too. Hopefully if Hideki wins there will be some A5 Wagyu on the menu in 2022.

Matsuyama is playing nice golf now.

BUT

The best thing about Augusta is the scope for disaster or birdies on the back nine. It’s not over yet.

Where did you read that? The problem with Augusta is that the boring nature of the back 9 pretty much guarantees a "snoozefest". 🤣

    • Lagged a 35 footer to 4 feet and missed 3 footers until it finally went in. Greens were fast AF. I have a big problem where I can’t aim or know where a putt is starting every now and then. I keep working on my putting mat, but it still comes up every now and then
    • I’ve hit a lot of good shots in the past week or so, but two really stand out: •In my round at Croasdaile, I was sitting two on a par 5 about 130 out, but there were some trees overhanging, so I couldn’t hit a lofted PW/9I. I opted for a punch and run with a 7I, planning to land it about ten feet short of the elevated green. I did exactly that, and my ball rolled onto the top tier where the pin was and stopped four feet out. Would’ve been a heck of a birdie, since that hole isn’t easy on a normal day, but I had a nice tap in for par.   •This was from my round yesterday. The seventh hole is a tough 180-yard par 3 from the blue tees. I let rip with a 6I, and I hit one of the purest 6I shots I’ve ever hit. It landed safely on the green and stopped pin high, about 15 feet to the left. Two putt for par and probably my best hole of the day.
    • I’ve played several times in the past week and a half, four rounds to be exact, so here we go! 5/6: Decided to play 18 holes after school, and I’m happy I did! My front nine was spectacular: two birdies and two bogeys, the rest pars for an even-par 36. One of the birdies was on the tough fifth hole after I bombed a drive and hit a wedge to six feet. That beats my personal best nine by two strokes! I started par-bogey on the back, but went +12 on the last seven holes to shoot 49 on the back for an 85 total. Still a solid number, but it was disappointing after the front.   5/8: I played a handicap match with a buddy at Croasdaile. Because of the tees we were playing and out handicap difference, I got twelve strokes, including nine in a ten-hole stretch. After five holes of the match, I was six over, and down two. But then started the stretch I mentioned above, and I took advantage, winning five holes to take a one up lead through 13. But then came the turning point of the match. I was sitting two on the par-3 14th about three feet out, and since I was getting a stroke here, I had a great chance to go two up with four to play. But then Zack chipped in, and my par putt, not for just a half, missed. All square with four to play. Because I got a stroke on two of the last four holes, I still had a chance to win. But momentum was with Zack. He went +1 on the last four holes, good enough for a two up win. My final numbers: 45-45 for a 90 from the blue/white combo tee (6241 yds, 70.8/133). Despite losing the match, I’m pretty happy with the round. Didn’t putt well on Croasdaile’s quick greens, but hit it well for the most part!   5/11: Played the home course again, and because a league was going off the front, I had to start this round on the tougher back nine. I managed three pars on the back nine, including the signature 18th hole, and I shot 45. Given the way I was playing, I figured I could shoot low 40s on the front nine.  I was right. Five pars on this side, and with two doubles as well, I shot 42 to finish with 87. Another solid round with solid putting (only 30 putts!) that saw my handicap drop a tenth of a stroke (16.0 to 15.9)!   5/17: In prep for the Durham Amateur tournament at Hillandale, I went to play Hillandale yesterday. From the blue tees. On the tougher front nine, I shot 44 which included a par on the tough par-3 seventh. Then, because I had only an hour and 20 minutes until all golfers needed to be off the course, I took a cart for the back nine. Playing kind of fast because I was pressed for time, I actually did okay. Despite playing holes 10-15 in only 45 minutes, I was +7 for the back. Not bad at all because all of the tough holes are in the stretch I’d just finished. I then went par-bogey, meaning a par on the short par-5 18th would bring me in with 88. I proceeded to hit my tee shot into an environmentally protected area, which, lucky me, played as a hazard, so I could just drop. It didn’t help me much though, because I was on in five, and three putted to finish the round with a 47 for the back and a 91 total. Didn’t hit it great, but I putted well again (32 putts here), so that saved me. Short game was also solid!
    • For folks that like the pod, they posted this video of them playing Kiawah recently from where the pros will play this week.  It's a long one,   a pro gives him some advice at the 42 min mark somewhat related to this.  Curious if you agree.    Overall, pretty fun video to watch some decent players try to play that course.    
    • Hi, Anyone out there playing with Ping Eye 2 irons still?  I have acquired a set and would like to deloft these clubs 2-3 deg.  What are your suggestions for final loft specs on these irons?
