2021 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play


Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of match play. They should do more of these. The Olympics should be match play too (OT). 

Plus, live golf on Wednesday! Let's go!

Agreed. MP would be much more appropriate, IMO.

Actually, no surprise the way things have been going for Rory lately. He's lost.

Yep, I looked at the leaderboard and read the status incorrect, 😉
Just like when I read my putts on greens,,, LOL

I actually wanted to say Rory was toying with Ian giving him a head start lead....
Poulter must have played lights out !!!

He had several birds and an eagle form what I recall.

Yeah...and damnit was I irritated to see that. Not able to watch and read that..then saw the truth. Loved to have seen Rory scalp Putzer.

Remember, all these guys on tour are about a stroke-and-a-half of each other in scoring average.  So if you're off your game (Rory) at the moment a Poulter can easily beat you.

Hutton slams his club down into the fairway. Was it wrong of me to wish it had bounced back and hit him in the tenders?

Sorry - I wrote Hutton instead of Hatton. Here he is with another club toss from today and the one from yesterday which was a real doozey:

I can't get over the action on that iron shaft. Did you see that thing was bending and flexing for what seemed like forever. Yeah, I know it was in super-slow-mo but never-the-less it was interesting. I did not know Hatton was a club-chucker.

I thought Bryson's comment was hilarious. Something like *I was trying to drive the green. I did it. It was just the wrong green*.

How does everyone feel about the round robin versus single elimination format? Does the round robin take away some of the excitement? 

I have mixed feelings. I like seeing so much golf on W-F, but the excitement of single elim is tough to beat.

I like that they get a second chance. Sometimes the winner can come from someone who lost the first match.

I think it’s stupid that they save ALL of the A-B matches until Friday, when half of them are inconsequential to who moves on from the group.

    • Day 36 (01 Aug 21) - More work on swing tempo focusing on getting a consistent 3:1 tempo.  
    • The above is the first I've heard of booster shots.  Hopefully I find a place to get one that doesn't involve over a half hour's drive to a city named Corona like my first two shots.
    • and, quoting the above: The line of best fit for the data of GIR vs score is 95 - 2 * GIR.  That's probably where @reidsou's number came from.   Note that, even if we treat it as the standard goal (I agree with you, as you'll see in a moment), an average 11-GIR round probably has one or two birdies thrown in, and I'd bet that most of those missed greens in such a round (again, for an average 11-GIR round) are probably very much near-GIR.  That having been said, there are some of us, such as the original poster on this thread and I, whose long game is such that more than seven GIR isn't unheard of (which that formula would "predict," if we use it to predict at least, a round in the 70s) but who still score in the 80s.  I even recently had a round with 9 GIR and a score of 90 -- which is why 95 - 2 *GIR isn't meant to predict any individual's score, but does still highlight the importance of GIR and ball striking. Which brings me to my next point, which is also @Shorty's next point:  yeah, 50% chipping and putting is not the way to go, certainly not long term.  Maybe with the goal of getting those traits to about an average 20-handicapper's level (without sacrificing approach shot strength), and then using the 15/20 time productively in future weeks to improve on them.  The nice thing about chipping and putting is that there is some low hanging fruit as far as getting competent goes, especially if one is building off the sort of short game shots that come from missing fewer than half of one's GIRs.
    • The people I noticed who got vaxxed early, some of it was they knew an inside person, other than knowing exactly which sites to hit and when. Like people who were fully vaxxed by February/March.  
    • I flew over Cabot Cliffs and Southport and the rendering of these courses was really poor. Guessing you have to find the courses where specific work was done to make them look realistic.
