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

I know. I wish we saw more of  Poston, NeSmith, Putnam, Todd, Burns, Tringale, Lashley, Norlander, Harman, Clark, Hubbard, List or Hardy, or a bunch or other players in the top 30 today.

In other words you do not know Schauffele. Seems a bit unfair to criticise him for playing the game well. He's actually a very interesting character and a hell of a lot more engaging than most. And... he's prepared to share his ideas about things like the Reed incident.

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

He didn’t criticize him for playing well. He thinks he’s boring. Not really your call. You don’t decide for someone who they think is boring or not. Many great players have been boring to watch in that persons opinion. So what?🤭

OMG, I was thinking Koepka winning would be crazy.  Insane eagle on 17.  This has been a fun day to watch.

Yes it has, and still slight chance of a playoff but odds are on Keopka now, especially if he get birdie on 18.

Someone who doesn't know golf might think Tiger or Rory or Koepka was boring if they saw themfor the first time.  My point is that sometimes knowing something about players makes them seem more interesting. :-)

He's also full of shit (about what Tour players do) and an asshole (I know people at his former golf club).

Agreed. I use to be a BK fan early on, but as he started to show his personality over time, I lost respect for him

Oh - I was talking about Koepka - not a fan anymore...

The only feeling I have for BK is “meh.” I root for him sometimes and against other times.

Pretty amazing to see Koepka end up with this one and, yeah, great chip on 17. I was also glad to see Striker end up as well as he did. There's still hope for us geezers...

So much fun indeed. I found this final round to be absolutely thrilling to watch and very exciting.   So many players could have won and you didn't know who it was going to be and then Brooks chipped in for that enormous eagle and stole the show. Who would have expected it?  So many storylines going on.  Very sad about JT's grandather's passing.   Hahn's total meltdown after having a 2-stroke lead.  That 17th driveable par 4.  Stricker's great play.  Spieth's resurgence.  I find Xander exciting to watch.   At around 4:00, I predicted a playoff.  So much more to say about this final round. Suffice it to say, I really loved it.   I wish all Sunday rounds would be this exciting.

I'm a huge fan of a birdie/eagle opportunity 17th hole. 

In my opinion every course should have either a short par 4 or a short par 5 as the 17th hole. That gives a chance for some huge excitement with an eagle or birdie on the 17th. Then the 18th should be the toughest hole on the course. That gives a chance for a meltdown or for a leader to falter on the last. 

I really like a bunch of leader changes over the last two holes. Some courses lend themselves to that scenario better than others. 

The golf was way more fun than the rock concert this weekend. ... Oh, yeah, I guess that rock concert was actually supposed to be a football game.
