She just wouldn't let that comment go.   She went on and on to the point I became irritated by her comments.   The broadcast is very boring

They seem to be only following three groups for most part too.

this is nuts!  

Also the event where: They have what I imagine must be the shortest par 5 on tour these days at 505 yards.  And unless they have plans to add a tee in the bar or on the roof, its not getting any

It’s from all those free Pimento Cheese Sandwiches he won at The Masters.

Hopefully, it will become a bit less boring as we get to Sunday. I also think the announcing is atrocious. And, as @boogieliciouscommented, I'm also tired of the "ocean effect" and hearing how "the greens are firming up". On the other hand - maybe the announcers are as bored as some of us are with the current play (with the exception of Sam Burns who will probably blow it on Saturday).

Weather delay?? Are the balls moving on the greens?

Yes, if they mowed the greens this morning then the person who made that call should be taken to the woodshed.

Somebody got a little ‘ Oakmonted’ on the brain. Agree. Woodshed ‘em.

It doesn't look that windy.

I remember showing up to an Open Competition up from Galway at Connemmara where it was allegedly Gale Force 9.  I forced my way into the Pro Shop and asked, "The tournament is cancelled, right" and I hear behind me a petite women say, "What kindo man r ye....I played 18 and am going out again".  Standing was a challenge during gusts.

I remember the wind was so bad on the old course at ballybunion that a playing partner hit a popup into the wind on 18.  The ball went out 50-60 yards and the wind hit the ball, it landed behind us.  Our mouths were open.  The caddy did not miss a beat.  "That's nothing, when it really blows that one would have been in the water"  (add Irish Brogue and smell of liquor for full effect)

As long as she doesn't discourse on round square feet again...

On a windy day in Ireland, our caddy said "usually thee putt would break to the right!
But with wind blowing the way it is, your guess is as good as mine ..."

I always loved playing in the very strong winds coming off the Great Lakes in spring and Fall. Easy money too if you are playing someone who can't hit a knockdown or get the concept of hitting irons with as little spin as possible. I have seen balls move on the green from wind, but what I saw on TV at Riviera was crazy, Guys ball ended up 10 yards off the green.........

Could be one of the most painful tournaments to watch, ever, on TV.  Burns is not slow, rather, constipated to excess.  When will they be put on the clock?  This sets an incredibly bad example to all players that slow play is necessary and required.  Pathetic.  Put them on the clock.

DJ and Burns tanked pitch shots on 10! 

Love when pros do something relatable.

Germans have a word for that....schadenfreude.....pleasure seeing the failures of others, but I think particularly from the high and mighty.   I did not see DJ's shot being anything other than very difficult.  The rough was very juicy,  Lie was bad.  Some trees.  A crapshoot.  He is done

    • I don’t think anything they do will make a meaningful impact on pace of play except keeping players on the clock and enforcing it. Without books they may just spend more time reading the green since they don’t have anything to help them. I just don’t see where players would get the incentive to play faster if they think spending their allot time will help them score better. Many players play fast and enjoy keeping a good pace, but with 125 players out there, there will always be many that take their time. The Masters has banned books, so some players already has some experience with it. Do they play faster there? The greens at Augusta are difficult and it’s a special tournament, so maybe they spend their time even without books. Perhaps not the best tournament to compare with. I came across this article: https://www.golfchannel.com/news/2021-us-open-rory-mcilroy-thinks-green-reading-books-should-be-outlawed-greater-good-game There seems to be a combination of reasons behind the idea, rather than one. I’d maybe think the for-the-greater-good thoughts like Rory’s are more common than pace of play, but also a combination. I like the thoughts about the greater good of the game, and wouldn’t object to the books being outlawed. It puts more focus on reading greens and trusting what you see rather than consult a book. As Erik said, if they don’t putt better today than before the books, is there a reason to keep them?
    • I have 45°, 50° and 56°. Simple. As a short knocker I need the extra slots for the top of my bag.
    • Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great. 
    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now.
