me too.   It will be great to see the actual course.  

After reading about the 17th hole I had to go in and play it for myself... from the back tees.

I hope they don’t give too much tv time to Daly. Just had enough of him and his silly brand. Nice he’s given to some charities but damn…it’s just gotten old for me. 

His swing is prettier then his clothes.:-)

I know -  I think it would be very possible to lose three balls on every hole. And that's if you picked up after losing your third.

But @Bucki1968thinks it's pretty easy so I'm sure we'll see him contending on the weekend. 🤣

I didn't think it was "hard," but please, tell me about how I'm going to lose 3 balls a hole. 🙂 No, I didn't play it at 7800 yards, but I did on a windy day at 7150.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Bryson won't make the cut (or, since the cutline is the top 70 plus ties), he'll be at the very bottom of the cut if he makes it. I'll take Sam Burns for the win at -11.

Toying with the idea of subscribing to ESPN+ to watch the early streaming coverage.  Looks like it's $5.99/month.  Then cancel at the end of the month.

That was hyperbole ( should've used an exaggeration emoji) and you are a professional. I am talking about someone who might like to call himself a "mid handicapper". Again - I should have specifically stated that I am not talking about a genuine plus handicapper, but we are going to see some high scores. I could easily see someone hitting into the marshes off the tee, then into the water and then in the scrub around the green. I am thinking of Ben Whoverheis in the recent EAL "Breaking Sawgrass" thing where a "14"has 148. Obviously he was closer to 34 than 14.

But I think we can safely say that it is a "hard" golf course. 

In the race of life, always back self-interest. At least you know it's trying.

~7800yds. I don’t care if it was a vacuum. That’s hard.

Well...we didn't play it at that yardage. We played much shorter ( I wanna say it was like 6800). Off the tee it's not really are that hard. The fairways are pretty big and you have some room to one side or the other. I assume they made the fairways smaller for the PGA but when we played it, I bet some of the holes had 75 yard wide fairways. Around the green was tough but like I said earlier, it wasn't really windy and greens are big so I didn't think it was that tough on that particular day. It seems like the course did not play as long as the yardage. Maybe it was just me?

Maybe. If tipped out. Which it won’t be.

Do they post the yardage it plays each day? It’s the longest if tipped out at least. But the same could probably be said about the 2017 US Open. If they just go by the tipped out distances, it might not have played 7741 in 2017.

Quote

With a scorecard yardage of 7,876 yards, it will be the longest major venue in history. It is 135 yards longer than the previous record holder, Erin Hillls, the host of the 2017 U.S. Open.

Am not sure how long it really is.  Admittedly this is Rory, one of the longest players on tour, but a 571 yard par 5 he hits driver 7 iron to get on the green.  🤯

 

Maybe it is just long for us normal people

I take it PGA Championship is the only major without online streaming?

I figured it was worth $5.99 for me.

Again, like I said, for you and me, these are long holes and courses.  In a 570 yard par 5 I would probably be going driver, 4 hybrid and then 7 iron.  Rory is going driver 7 iron.  Yes, he is one of the longer players on tour, but when they are playing a 7 iron for their second shot into a par 5, what is truly long for them 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Straight downwind and firm. They're also hitting 7-irons into par fours.

I’m playing along on the WGT Golf Game. I’m sitting-2 after the first round! It’s really cool to see the holes live. The game is pretty close.

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..  
    • Like I was saying he's under the radar but would have played well at the Pres cup ....now maybe  in the top 25 in the world .. will make the next Masters..... >>>>>>>>>>> When it comes to motivation, Ryan Fox didn’t glean much from being bypassed for Presidents Cup captain’s pick a few weeks back. However, as he navigated St. Andrews’ Old Course to the tune of 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory Sunday at the Alfred Dunhill Links, Fox was spurred on by something else: his late pro-am partner. “To be honest the only person I can really think of at the moment is Warnie,” Fox said on the 18th green afterward. Fox, the 35-year-old son of New Zealand rugby player Grant Fox, had paired with Australian cricket legend Shane Warne a few times in this event, including last year when the duo finished second. That marked the last appearance for Warne, a regular at the Dunhill Links who died from a suspected heart attack last March at age 52. “There was definitely some extra motivation there this week,” Fox added later. “Maybe not so much the Presidents Cup, but definitely to try to do something special for Warnie … and I'm pretty proud to have been able to accomplish that.” Fox, who ended last year at No. 213 in the world rankings, is now expected to rise inside the top 25, 
    • Obviously Fox saw the discussions here and proved a point yesterday
    • It's been a long time since I've played alone, but I'm looking forward to doing it again one day. I like it as an intermediate zone between the range and golf with other people. I find it much easier to play alone, and it allows me to practice shots I otherwise might not think to try if I was on the range. Added bonus that it's very peaceful and low stress, and it's a nice thing to mix into the routine.
