Part of growing up. My hats off to him for growing and being better. We’re too quick to be unforgiving these days. We should recognize when a person makes a change for the better and not hold grudges. 

 

I agree with you. I don’t find him whiny. I like him a lot. He’s very respectful and easy to root for. Class act. 

No grudges, just would much rather see anyone else win 🤣.  Truth be told I’m a sucker for an underdog story so if Jordan is out of it, like today, I would have loved to have seen a Hughes or Henley win

That’s fair.

Who is best player without a major now? 

Shauffele, Rickie, Westy would be mine.  Hard to count Xander though since he’s so young still.  I mean, 4 years from now, if not by then

It’s early, but I’m going to say Zalatoris. I think with his ballstriking, he’s going to have a great career. I would’ve said Rickie or Finau before recently.

Xander Schauffele, imo.

Yeah I like that pick too.

Little to early imo.  Besides the Masters he hasn’t really done anything to warrant “best player without” a major.  I would love to see him become that though, one of the best

All time or ‘new’? Westwood for the overall I think. Finau gotta be up there.

This week's PGA Championship is the first -- and only -- major of the 2019-20 PGA TOUR season. It's also the first of seven majors in the next 12 months, due to shifting schedules because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Looks like Xander is the next top of the list for best with out a major.

That is so true. He seems genuinely more concerned about someone getting hurt more so than being upset about a bad shot. 

Who cares?

Nobody in a crowd is going to hear players yell it.

95% of the time they’re not even looking.

Great final round - very enjoyable day. Kudos to Rahm for winning a big one and to Louis for a pretty fine round. Kudos to BDC for not throwing things on the course after what was a very poor showing.

If Rahm holds on for the win, will he be the first Basque major winner?

No, Olazabal is from Hondarribia right across the water from France ,Rahm from nearby Bilbao .Seve was also from the north coast not sure if it’s classed as Basque .

Haven't been keeping up with purses, did not realize 2nd place nets almost 1.4 million. I remember like around 2015, 2016, second place cracked 1 million. Certainly increasing at a rate higher than inflation.

Funny how Matt Kuchar, who I don't even really like, is left out of the conversation. He has as many PGA Tour wins as any of those 2 combined and only 2 less than all 3 combined.

    • Day 38-41 Continued to work on rotation and weight shift drills through the middle/end of the week. Today I took my mom golfing as a belated Mother's Day gift. Also brought my son along for his first round ever. Played a par 3 course. Shot one-under. Which I'm pretty proud of given that it was a SLOW round with a 5 year old. Struck the ball really well, and putting was solid. All the work I put in putting has definitely paid off. Back to the days when I was automatic from 5 feet and in.  Was really proud of the little guy. He didn't once show any signs of mental fatigue or boredom. He even got a round of applause from a group of 8 guys after his tee shot on the last hole.  And no, we weren't holding up play. This particular course has added a soccer type course that runs in tandem with their traditional 9-hole par 3 course. Kind of interesting and hadn't seen anything like that before. Essentially 18 holes with a soccer ball. Where the "hole" is essentially a 55 gallon drum embedded in the ground. 
    • Day 126: Some priority piece practice and then a bit of short game practice. 
    • Day 163 (21 May 22) - left foot, skin breakdown again. Did some lag drills with the putter using heads up technique.  
    • Day 76.  Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament.  Shot an 86 and qualified    Also in happy news:  my putting.  No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places.  My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2').  I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.  
    • Had 3 birdies today, got to count one towards the challenge.
