Okay, fashion and color coordination are not anywhere in my skillset.  But what's wrong with them?

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.

But no pleats or cuffs. He gets points there.

I'm still learning.

Boy, of all the things I was looking for during the broadcast, this was nowhere on the radar.  But to each his own!

Well....he’s a nice kid. But reality? He had a pretty nice upbringing. Country club golf, entire family excelled at sports, had every resource he needed to pursue his dream and enormous talent.

I’d like to see him win for sure. But I don’t really have a soft heart for him.

Yeah, same here.  I like him just fine.

Dustin Johnson laid up last year, IIRC. Tiger did, from 204, too.

I heard that's a pattern among guys named Johnson who want to win at Augusta... ;-)

Kuch is just a good trash talker but friendly. He’s way too ‘ aw golly shucks’ to win a major. He doesn’t have that killer competitor edge when a big moment is there. He’s good a plucking off Sony open type tournaments. He’s not major material.

He has always reminded me of Goofy.

Rose is doing swing rehearsals while waiting to play. Looks like he's searching for a feel. And he's leading!

Or he's trying to keep a feel.

He's been doing that for years. I second what @saevel25 said. I encourage my players to do this throughout the round, too, keep exaggerating it.

After reading what you both wrote, I now remember him doing that in the past. I guess it's not a new thing for him. It feels unusual because you don't see other players doing it, but that just might be because we don't see them standing in the fairway waiting to hit on TV.

Anyone else watching online at the Masters.com?  I never really went into the online version more than watching the featured groups or the bundle of holes they show, but you can watch every shot hit by any player, by clicking on that player and selecting the hole you want to watch. And they will show you each of their shots plus a track of each of the shots, pretty awesome.

Yeah, last night:

 

People saw it live on the telecast and knew.

So I'm fascinated with what Bryson is doing as it relates to bulking up and applying serious analytics to golf.  However, let's assume that over time he ends up bludgeoning traditional golf courses to dust.  What's the overall point of doing that? Of course it's a challenge to him but then what becomes the next challenge? If you listened to Bryson's pressers at the Masters, lots of young golfers are asking him for advice on bulking up and persuing more power.  To what end?

Is Jordan really back?  He lucked out on the first round by holing out that eagle chip, but more importantly, is his game officially back?  I would say not quite.  He's still missing fairways and were not for his chipping and putting, he'd be out of the mix.

And Rory.  Man I wish he would get his head together.  He's got the best swing on tour, but you'd never know it, given how he struggles at times (especially at the Masters).  These guys go through swing overhauls, AFTER they've won a major championship!  What the hell?

Is there still fan call in?

Apparently Rory's troubles in the last year are all to do with chasing further distance after Bryson won that US Open by out driving everyone.  Not like he was short to begin with but he got even longer.  The problem is it affected his swing plane and all his current issues stem from that.  I reckon he will be back to his best soon with a few tweaks.  I can even see him winning a major this year.

Augusta's greens were stimping close to 15 yesterday, looks like the slowed them down just a touch today.

They were not, no.

15 is nearly impossible. They were 12.5, maybe 13. Tops.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
