2021 Genesis Invitational


Recommended Posts

I do not normally bet on sports but decided to take a few bets on Dustin Johnson beating both Adam Scott and Bubba Watson in the first round.  It is early but through 5 Dustin is +1, Scott -1 and Bubba Even.  Can't wait until 2pm Golf Channel begins coverage.

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.

The event where:

  • One of the shortest par fours on the Tour is one of the most interesting.
  • There's a par three with a bunker in the middle of the green.
  • There's a split fairway (left/right).
  • Adam Scott unofficially won a PGA Tour event.

  • They have kikuyu grass - not sure if anybody knew that because they never mention it on tv. 😉
  • Tiger has never won it.  (finished 2nd a couple times)
  • One of those was in 1998 when it was NOT at Riviera (because they were preparing for the Senior PGA), but rather up north at Valencia CC where Tiger lost in a playoff to Billy Mayfair.
  • I was in the area once and accidentally drove my car onto this golf course.  (If you look at google maps, there is a street that just dead ends right near the middle of the first fairway and the gate was open.  Oops. )
  • Oh, and somewhere on this course is likely where the real killer was hiding back in 94/95 ... or at least that's where OJ thought he was hiding. 🙂

And you left off the 60-foot drop from the tee to the fairway, which makes it play even shorter. I think Bryson hit an iron off the tee and then an 8I. It's a par 70 course, let's be honest.

I enjoyed seeing that Tae Hoon Kim went birdie, eagle, eagle and won a new car with the hole in one on the 3rd, I think it was.

I also got a laugh out of the announcers arguing about whether or not a "square foot" could be round. Good grief!

Just watching it a little bit from today's DVR.  They've mentioned it 3 times (that I've noticed) in the first hour.

An ace on the third hole at Riviera would be something, that's for sure.  Andrew Magee would have to present the award. 

For the second year in a row, I'm not volunteering at the event.  This isn't in protest or anything, it's just that I moved away -- I used to live a lot closer to this event.  Of course, the years I volunteered at it, I was often worked admissions and will call, which I would guess is less busy this year than in the past.

On PGA Tour Live they mentioned it at least once during every shot.

Agreed.  It’s a par 70.  And a legit one at that.  Last couple winning scores would’ve been -7 or -8.  They wouldn’t need to trick this course out much at all to host a us open or pga if they so desired.

I'm looking at this tournament a little different since I am putting some wagers out that I do not normally do and it is adding to the fun and anticipation.  Yesterday I won my 2 bets on Dustin and my bet that Jordan makes the cut looks good.  Today I took a more aggressive bet and need Adam Scott to shoot a good round, at least good compared to DJ,  Rahm, Morikawa, Cantlay & Bubba.

It is early but Jordan is looking good at -2 through 5.  It will be interesting to see of Sam Burns can keep up his pace.  I don't know much about Sam but he has a nice lead, but holding it will be the key.  There is a lot of golf left.

If Dottie mentions the pull of the ocean one more time, I will call my friends in LA and have them toss her off the Santa Monica Pier.

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

    • Sometimes I hate golf.1 Just flushed ten balls in a row. Swing to 2, look to make sure left wrist is slightly cupped (easy). Swing to 4 feeling it is adding a little cupping (it stays about the same). Hit it. FLUSH. Such a dumb sport. With like no margins of error. And one of like 50 things can go wrong in the smallest way at any given moment. 1 Not really.
    • They're different models of the ball. So they're two separate entries on the conforming ball list. So you've technically "changed balls." That's all.
    • Welcome back. See ya around…😃
    • I’ve done 54 on the same course a couple of times.   Always cart because they weren’t easily walkable.  I was able to keep my focus because my third round of the day was the best.     lot of weekends in my 20s, in walked and carried my bag for 36 each day.
    • I googled the reason for it and it also mentions that you also can’t change ball color as well for an advantage, but I’m having trouble coming up with something where the ball color changing during a round would be some type of advantage.   In other words, you can’t even use the exact same ball model with different colors in a round, anyone come up with changing ball color during the round somehow would help?
