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.

~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?

This is apparently the longest course in a major ever.

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?  

You need to sign up and pay for ESPN+ to get the contents other majors offer for free?

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 like this guys podcasts. I don't find him pandering a specific protocol or you must do this to be healthy. He just reviews the science literature and provide informative podcasts about that based on the subject of the podcast episode.  ‎Huberman Lab: How to Lose Fat with Science-Based Tools | Episode 21 on Apple Podcasts ‎Show Huberman Lab, Ep How to Lose Fat with Science-Based Tools | Episode 21 - May 24, 2021 The summary... In general, eating less calories than calories burned. Calories intake is easy to calculate. Calories burned is actually not that easy to figure out.  These things will help to make sure your body is in an optimized state to burn fat. Above 1000mh of EPA fatty acid per day. Glutamine - Helps reduce sugar cravings. Can cause stomach issues discomfort when first starting out. Not really needed unless people struggle from cravings. Healthy Thyroid - So, proper Iodine Levels and proper Selenium Levels. You can get enough Selenium per day by eating 2-3 Brazil Nuts.  Proper sleep. Healthy gut microbiome - Eat fermented foods or take good probiotics. These things help burn more calories or engage the body into burning fat.  Fidgety Movement (bouncing leg, standing up often during the day). People who are subconsciously fidgety were measured burning 800-2500 more calories per day. Cold Therapy. This is similar to fidgety movement, but actually causes the body to create a chemical that engages the burning of fat. The steps are to induce a shiver for 1-3 minutes by getting into cold water (cold shower/bath). Exit the water, and shiver for 1-3 minutes, and then repeat for 2-3 more times getting in and out of the water. Do this 1-3 times a week.  High Intensity Training will burn glycogen during the exercise, but for what could be up to 24 hours after the training, the body will burn more fat.  For burning fat, working out fasted tends to be better. After 90 minutes of moderate intensity (zone 2), if you ate before exercise (1-3 hours before), you will burn far less fat from the 90 minute point onward than if you were fasted (eaten 3 hours or later from start of exercise). The body needs to deplete itself of glycogen to switch over to fat. Higher insulin levels will inhibit fat oxidation.  Coupling points 3 and 4, while fasted (at minimum 3 hours after eating), do high intensity training first then followed by low intensity training. This could be good for someone with a busy schedule. Training at high intensity for 20-30 minutes, where you are breathing hard for that amount of time, then go on with your day. If you want some extra burn of fat, then do some light to moderate cardio.  Supplements Caffeine - can enhance performance of exercise. But, only for caffeine adapted. If you are not, the caffeine will constrict your blood vessels and reduce performance. If you are caffeine adapted, then it will actually do the opposite. Up to 400mg of caffeine can help burn more fat during exercise (consume 20-30 minutes before exercise). GLP1 - Compound that is created in the body by drinking Yerba Mate tea. This compound increases fat oxidation directly. Like caffeine, can be taken before exercise to increase the amount of fat burned during exercise. Mate tea does have caffeine as well.  *Note, this is just stuff the scientific literature has shown. Consult your doctor before taking anything or doing any new protocols. 
    • Go to the automotive section of a store or Autozone, looks for “Westleys Bleach White”…. It’s a whitewall tire cleaner. Spray it on your grips, wait 30 seconds and rub it hard with a towel.  They will be like new.  I use it and it’s unbelievable 
    • Day 331: Played 18 this AM in the first group out. Driver was really squirrelly, so I went to the range after to work the feels out. I was definitely taking the club back to far out in front of me. This makes it hard to control. So I worked on the feel like I’m taking it too far inside, which isn’t the case (I know this from filming my practice). This just sets the club up properly for a good downswing. Playing again tomorrow. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ScottCurry/round/3100692  
    • Meh, the book was better. Seriously, hope no longer term problems for the guy in the video.
