One sign of normalcy returning is the USO qualifying is back. Locals start soon, in about 10 days, going until May. I see 3 qualifiers near me. If you're not familiar, these are free and open to the public usually. Not sure how covid will affect attendance requirements. Anyone know if they are still open to the public to view this year?

Final qualifying dates May 24, June 7.

A few years back Golf Channel actually televised a bunch of the sectional qualifiers (a best as they could) and I thought it was pretty cool.  Wish they'd do that again.

At one of the qualifiers, I recall overhearing one of the announcers talking to a cameraman or some other and he was like, if you suck at math and science, you should be a reporter, it's a great gig.

I went to the Open the last time it was at Torrey Pines.  It's still the only major I've been to.  Fun time.  I can't wait to watch this one.

That's funny. Geoff, c'mon man…

In his defense having to hear "smash that like button" on repeat could probably drive anyone crazy after less than an hour.

I went to the practice rounds for the 2008 US Open.  Saw all the big names.  A highlight of my golf watching career, along with watch Jack win his final USGA total at Cherry Hills in the Senior US Open in 1993.  I was at a conference at a hotel where a lot of the players stayed including Jack.  Coincidentally, the Denver Broncos were holding cheerleader tryouts at the same hotel.  Good times.

Wow.  What a great story.  Anyone know when and where his sectional qualifying will be?

I'm guessing the Bears Club in Jupiter FL.

If this kid wins, will this be the youngest victor at the Open since Ouimet? 

Imagine if the Open goes to a playoff with Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and that kid... and the kid wins.

Okay, one shot at a time, first the kid has to get through the next qualifying stage.

But seriously, that's so cool that he was able to do what he already has done!

    • Let's see... how many things can you do on a golf course?  Uh, fling golf, foot golf, regular golf, sled in the winter, ice skate on the ponds, cross-country ski, have keggers, have parties, have sex... the list goes on.  Mary Queen of Scots is turning over in her grave.
    • Tiger’s driving could be more erratic than Jack’s.    Driving: Jack (I think they were equal in distance relative to the equipment they were  playing, but Jack stayed out of the shit) Approach (75-250 yards): Wash. Jack takes the longer end (mainly because of some amazing 1 and 2 iron shots). Tiger takes the shorter end. Short Game: Tiger not close. Putting: Wash. Both of them in pressure situations.    Recovery: Tiger Mental: That’s a wash. Performance under pressure: Both How much better than everyone else was Tiger in his prime vs Jack on his prime? Tiger set the bar so high when he was in his prime that most guys behind him weren’t even in the same time zone let alone, the same tour. Jack was pretty damn good but he wasn’t as dominant as Tiger and that’s where Tiger is so much greater than Jack and that’s what makes him the GOAT.  
    • It seems it would be difficult to get the ball to stop on the green. Bump and run can be judged. But let’s say a 150-170yd…it’d be hard to hurl the ball far enough to get there but with a high enough trajectory to stay on the green. Seems like every shot outside 100yds would have to be a bump and run.
    • For those who have tried golf a few times and find it too frustrating(like my wife), I can see where this might be fun for some. Consider me open minded. But that is coming from a snow boarder and someone who also enjoys disc golf as well.  🙂
    • They probably have to pay the same rates so it won’t hurt the course in that aspect.
