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.

Feel sorry Robert Gamez.....92.

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.

    • They could leave the Masters bubble and focus on total career achievements, but maybe that deviates from the intention. Eventually they may have to choose players who only won once. «First on the tee, Patrick Reed!». Or maybe they’ll be off with the whole thing. There aren’t that many multiple winners these days. Phil, Bubba and Tiger are the only ones with wins this millennia.
    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.
    • Yeah, @iacas, here’s another article echoing the last one you posted: CDC Studies 'Breakthrough' COVID Cases Among People Already Vaccinated COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective but don't always provide perfect protection. Some...  
    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
