When I first started running my calves and ankles were so screwed up, so sore, so stiff… I had a hard time walking DOWN stairs. It might take 30 seconds. It was awkward AF.

What a major!  This is easily one of the three best major championship weekends of 2021 so far.

The last thing I’d want is to have Bryson and BK paired on Sunday for the win. I certainly don’t want either of them to win. And it’s not like an MMA or boxing match. Just a couple of whiners who don’t like each other. I’d much rather see BK have a good lead then lose it spectacularly. I’d also like to see Finau finally win. Of course it’d be epic if Phil was leading on Sunday….but that’s not gonna happen. Spieth…another good one. But BK and Bryson? Meh.

Agreed. The problem with Bryson versus Brooks is that they are both heels to a degree. You need a face to go up against a heel, like Spieth or Rory paired with Patrick Reed in the final group on Sunday.

It's certainly a popular cliche these days, but nonetheless I'll say it: I felt that (phantom pains in my legs).

This is why i can't run on concrete. My legs just get destroyed. Knees hurt, calf and thigh muscles will ache for days. Treadmill, not nearly as much.

I know we’re not even through the first day yet and that the guys playing well right now had favorable conditions this morning (softer greens), but the scoring right now makes me wonder a few things:

- is this Torrey is as hard as Torrey back in ‘08?

- are the guys that much better nowadays?

- has equipment had something to do with it?

- a combination of all the above? 

- none of the above?

Im happy we arent talking about a  bunch of pitch and  putt par 5's and driveable  par 4's. I  have a feeling par will be a good score when its  over. Koepka  did  fine. Hope  Bubba watson gets  under  par.

Hard to do. With the equipment  like  it  is  now. Courses should  be at  least 7800 yards. I did forget to mention Rahm. My num 3 choice.

Phil ain't winning this thing, guys. C'mon now…

Draft Kings is so nice, They are offering me $0.012 for each dollar to exit my bet.  Only a 98.8% loss if I cashed out.  Should I double down?  😜

Helicopter got pretty close to the shore there.

Better stocked than a big box store.

 

Watch out for the monsters in the mist - I saw it in a movie.

We have one like that around here.  It certainly feels like it's 7800 yards from the clubhouse to the practice tee.

I find NBC’s 4D feature underwhelming. There’s a drop in resolution and fps. All those cameras I wonder if it takes away viewing room from fans. 
 

Anyone know why so many pro golfers are endorsed by software companies - supply chain, HR, CRM, ERP, etc… ?

Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great.

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
