But he caught it so…

You do not always make the catch.  I could not find the shot I referred to in order to post a video but he threw it very high.  Below is video of him at another time where it was never catchable.

I don’t think you can have it both ways...they are either going to play with emotion (both positive & negative) or they won’t.
To your point, I also enjoy seeing them relatable, rather than a stiff ice cold professional. Granted, guys like DJ who seem impervious to  the externals benefit from that ability, but still fun to see guys be human out there 

I believe you can have emotion but not let the emotion out of control.  I know this is a different situation, but let's say you are driving and someone cuts you off.  I can see honking the horn of using some sign language but cutting them of in retaliation and risking an accident is not cool, even if no accident occurs.

Jeez man...eeeeassssy.

I'm not saying DQ him or that I now hate him, just noted that I felt the club through excessive and risky to the green.

Hell,  for anyone .....

When Arnie was alive, yes.  Just like the Byron Nelson Tournament. Fields are not what they were when the hosts were there. Sad, yes. True, yes. You imply that 8 of the U.S. top 10 are

Just turned on Round 1 and V. Hoveland was putting, using Aimpoint on a short putt on #16.  Distance @ 4 feet.  The commentators decided to briefly discuss AimPoint and one of them, not sure which one

Seriously?

The things some people spend their time caring about…

Worst case he fixes a small dent. Like a ball mark.

He’s not serious. No way. Just making small conversation. Right?

Yes, All I said was I was not happy with it and then responded to a few counter-points.  Its no sweat off my back and as I said, it does not make me "Dislike" the golfer.

Almost felt sorry for Bryson today. Hit a drive almost 350 yards - just 30 or so off the green and then makes a Zippo chip! Still, he's only 3 back going into tomorrow. Good day for Spieth. Managed to make a few putts. Rory, Viktor and Lanto only 2 back. Should be an interesting day tomorrow.

Bryson didn't go for the green on #6 again. Kind of a bummer considering all the hype going into the tournament about whether or not he would try it. Can't fault him considering he's contending and doesn't want to John Daly it, but I hope he goes for it at least once.

Looking at the top six after 2 rounds and V Hoveland has the most bogies at 5, he also has plenty of Birdies (12).  Question: Is he due a blowup round or is he on the verge of a fantastic round?

I read he ran into a performance issue with his new driver and reverted to the driver he'd been using beforehand.  So perhaps he's playing his drives a bit more cautiously?

I did notice he's using an older model Cobra BioCell driver, so maybe he's still working some kinks out of his equipment.

He also said if conditions were not just right he would not do it.  I’m not sure if he’s had the wind to his back or not on the first two rounds but I believe that is a factor,

Good start for Jordan, 19 foot putt for birdie on #1

ACE for Spieth on #2 😀

Good start, but Bay Hill bites back on #3 for Spieth and also for Rose who put multiple balls in the water.

Great putt to salvage #3 and an inch short of birdie on #4

    • I've hit a few which I have found and they didn't impress me with anything outstanding. Other than it's designed for the budget minded golfer versus a player who wants a better performance ball. IMO, some players typically try various products, while others are set in their ways. Most better players are typically reluctant to switch ball brands under any circumstances. I'll curse at my buddy who's a Bridgestone Rep who throws the tour ball at me when we golf together. I never liked the "feel or the fact it will not stop downwind very well", but have played them and scored very well. Like they say "It's never the Indian, so it must be the arrow"  😁
    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
