But I got the usual as above as well as the ever familiar and undying claims that a new golfer is gonna win multiple majors because he’s having a moment at The Masters ( Zalatoris).

I think if you glued Zalatoris and the tour rookie Charles Howell III together you'd barely get a 200 lb. man.

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.

David Duval seems to think he could walk along the practice area and fix every golfer’s swing. Lol....poor bastards.

I just figured out how he could resurrect his playing career, but it requires a lot of people to cooperate.  If he does this at the next UKBO, and everyone listens to his suggested swing changes, he could win a second major, which he could follow up with additional wins at the other majors he's then invited to because of this, leading to a huge next swing of his career.

The My Group feature on the site is pretty cool. It suggests choosing 6 players and then it cues up the video as it become available. There is a little delay as each shot is cued, but it basically works. If there are no shots available among your choices, it'll pick someone.

Collin Morikawa putting is atrocious. He has missed 4 putts within 4 feet just in the front 9 of the third round. He also missed 2 putts within 6 to 7 feet.

This is how the selections have been picked for The Masters winner. I do see a slight problem in that two people picked JS at -14 . From what @iacas mentioned, if I am not mistaken, there can only be one selection for a particular golfer with reference to their final score? I noticed Darkfrog selected JS first at -14. Check out all the selections below:

 

Colins69                Tony Finau -11

phillyk                    Patrick Canlay -11
ncates00               Patrick Cantlay -13

nevets88               Rory McIlroy -12
pganapathy            Rory McIlroy -17

Darkfrog               Jordan Spieth -14
onthehunt526       Jordan Spieth -14

woodzie264          Dustin Johnson -14
RickK                     Dustin Johnson -17
iSank                      Dustin Johnson -18

DewSweeper09    Justin Thomas -9
Birdieputt              Justin Thomas -13
Billy Z                    Justin Thomas -14

Zippo                     Bryson DeChambeau -11
Hardspoon            Bryson DeChambeau -15

False hopes          Lee Westwood -11

Yukari                    Collin Morikawa -14

Bucki1968             Paul Casey -10

Check out Laird’s third shot on 18.

Quite impressive.

Looks like @onthehunt526 and I made the same pick (true I was first though), but Jordan needs to go on a run if he's going to get to -14 and win.

My fault, he came to me for a putting lesson and I taught him everything I know.

My set top box died on me, my OTA antenna only works for the small tv, found out I could stream the broadcast on my phone and Airplay it to the big tv. Had no idea I could do that. Thought I was going to do a trial period of YouTube Live or something. The picture is probably better quality than the set top box (FIOS).

If it was really windy, they’d half to put a weight belt on Zalatoris to keep him from blowing away!

He can sure pound the ball, though.

Xander with an eagle to take a share of the lead! 😄 

And Rose with a birdie to reclaim the lead right after.

And Matsuyama with an eagle to take it over both of them.  Xander right back to two back seconds after an eagle to take a share of the lead. 

Jim Nantz tells me the sequence I described above was all of 90 seconds.

After Hideki's second shot on #18, I really wish I had his composure.  Obviously he is better than I am at all aspects of golf, but after hitting out of a bunker and well past the green, the look on his face said "finally, I have an interesting third shot on one of these holes.  It's been a while."  Of course he'd rather have a short putt (or have sunk his second), but that's far better than how a lot of players react, especially those of us who aren't likely to ever compete at Augusta. 

Justin Rose just had a great reaction to a par save on #14 too.  Like something out of a video game.

And what a great chip by Matsuyama at 18.

I feel like I knew a lot more about him at one point but I can't remember offhand.  I don't remember having a dislike of him though.

Zalatoris isn’t cursing and slamming his club into the ground when he misses a shot. He’ll never make it on the tour.

    • Not allowed in Norway yet. Hopefully soon though...  Nice shot OP, but I must unfortunately agree with the rest here: Not a hole in one. I've had a couple of "foam/filler"-outs from some way out myself and, as annoying and unfair it is, I can't count them as in dispite it being impossible to slamdunk a golfball in the cup with fillers/foam in the hole.
    • One thing that might help for not using the arms is the swing jacket...It Literally doesn't allow you to swing your arms.   It did work but I have so many other problems I stopped using it.
    • As @iacas says, current science says that its safe to remove the flagsticks.  However, the USGA provided this guidance from the early days of the pandemic, when a wide variety of measures were put in place to limit the possibility of passing the disease to others: https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules-hub/rulesarticles/covid-19-rules-and-handicapping-faqs.html  
    • No, not that. Sets a very low ceiling. Yes, you’ll get better as you get your timing down and ingrain your swing but you’re also further ingraining bad habits and when your game does go off the rails a bit you’ll have no touchstones for reference. Find a qualified instructor. It can be inexpensive because you don’t have to see them all that often. Learn your bugaboos. Learn your frequent issues and learn how to practice. If you do sign up for Evolvr it’s inexpensive but it does depend on you to practice well. The students who do well dedicate some time to practice. It doesn’t have to be even thirty minutes a day, but it has to be dedicated and done properly. Good luck.
