I think he's doing this to avoid violating 10.2b(4) and 10.3b(3). Notice how he goes through his entire routine with his caddie in a position to check his alignment.  Caddie moves out, then he goes through the entire routine again, so that he meets the clarification of "if alignment help is given but the player backs away ..."

 

That makes sense, but I can see how that would be annoying to someone watching that all day

I love listening to the talking NBC/Golf Channel heads emphasize how the fans are under strict social distancing rules, as I then see consistent video of fans not practicing social distancing rules.

Hey wait a minute....those guys are both big hitters. No way they can be that far off the lead! They have such an advantage with their distances! Imagine how hard it must be for a shorter hitter like

My man Wolfe made the cut and is ONLY 9 back. Well, OK, he's 9 back but he's only 5 behind Koepka and Koepka's only 4 back...

Spieth is looking much better than he has in a long time. I hope he keeps it up, a win can help shake off the some of the stress of the past few years.

Yeah, guy is on 59 watch. (Oops i lied. Either way, its a good round) Needs to birdie 18. He said he feels good tee to green now, just needed more putts to fall and he’s clearly getting it today.

I really like Xander....but damn, hard not to pull for Spieth. I do think that if he plays well but loses he’ll still have a great kick to getting some of his mojo back. If he collapses....that’ll hurt bad. But If he wins....it will be so good for his morale I’d even gamble that he wins again this year.

Spieth playing well is good for golf. I firmly believe that. I forgot how well he can putt. Very cool to watch. 

He holed quite a few great putts. Was nice to see.

I may be wrong, but I think the media trying to anoint him the next Tiger messed with his head and hurt is game.  I hope he can avoid similar issues if he starts to really get it going again.

Watching the replay this morning, Xander Schauffele is a very boring player to watch. Just plain dull. 

Maybe,  but if I had his game I wouldn't care if somebody called me boring!   😏   Not everyone can be a PReed.

He is definitely not losing sleep over my comment.

He's a machine. Most machines are boring to watch, except for a ferris wheel or a roller coaster.

Spieth makes me school girl giddy and I freaking love it.

Just like the days of McEnroe vs Ivan Lendl....I’d watch JM any day over Lendl. Just a pure bore.

Lendl was in fact an android.

Neither Jordan nor Xander golfing well enough to win.  Still 12 holes left so they are not out of it but they need a few good holes real quick.

I really want one of them to win.

    • I will risk accuracy for distance if it’s still playable and I actually score better that way. If I hit it behind trees and lose balls frequently, maybe a shorter club off the tee is better, but going from a 6 iron to an 8 iron is a big difference. What I remember best from my best round to date was that I felt in control with the driver and could have at it without the fear if a push-slice. I hit fairways, rough and bunkers, but the advantage of being closer is big, even if I find a bunker or the rough. The courses also matters of course. Some people play regularly on courses with few trees and manageable rough. I’ve played on some really narrow courses where a bad shot often is a lost ball. You always have to evaluate the hole and where you are likely to land. On some holes the layout suggests an iron is better, or a wood. On other holes you can go for maximum distance with the driver. It’s easier to use numbers like that with the peofessionals than amateurs, so don’t get too caught up in decimals. Give it a try a few rounds and see what happens, but remember your shot cones and adjust club selections to the hole layouts.
    • In just the past week or so the pool noodles are out of the cups, and rakes are back out.  We've had food and beverage service on the deck all along, with limited indoor seating all along, and we still have limited seating indoors.  We're seeing a lot more two-person carts now as people are being vaccinated, but you can still ride as a single.  We're not planning any shotgun starts for tournaments yet, trying to avoid larger gatherings.  So we're progressing towards normal, not there yet. I think at the local Trump golf club, trolleys aren't allowed, caddies are highly encouraged.  Yet if you go to the home of golf, all the locals use trolleys.  Ah well, we all have our own opinions.
    • Don't worry the toes are in the sandals with the white socks...although sandals with black socks seem to be on the rise and more socially offensive especially in beach climes. 
    • Headcovers for your irons is like a vinyl film hood cover on your car.  It protects the hood from rock chips (purely aesthetic) but is a bad look.  Wear and tear on certain things in life is a given (bodies included), adds character and we should embrace it.  Like a good pair of faded jeans.  Hope I'm not stepping on any toes here.  And if I am then go out and buy some toe covers...
