Koepka  is  going to have to worry about  making the  cut. He  is spraying  it everywhere. Might  be  intimidated  by  Morikawa's  play.

I think Morikawa's too small to intimidate Koepka.  We'll leave the intimidation to Bryson.

And dude, what's with all the egg yolks in your personal icon photo?!  (Though the dish looks delicious)  Has your heart doctor approved of the photo?  Check with Vinsk...

No Old Course then? It’s just a muni 

Didn't realize the Old Course was used for the US Open. Learn something new every day, I guess.  Seriously, the discussion was about US Open venues.

I just asked two colonists what "F Why Eye" means and they didn't know... 😁

I don't know. I thought he was saying that VH had a wardrobe malfunction with his pants 😁.

I didnt  put  it  in there. Koepka  coming totally  apart  now. It  isnt that  difficult  out there.

I also have  no idea  how to change  it.

USO on Peacock now and there's just so much announcing. SHUT UP! And ads. Lots of ads.

I had a weird experience with Peacock this morning.  My YTTV isn't working well for some reason (been an issue the past few days), so I used the app.  I signed up for free Peacock, watched Torrey on my laptop but couldn't cast to the TV.  So I installed the app on my TV but when I logged in there, I could only follow the featured group.  Is anyone else watching it (not right now, just in general) on free peacock?

Cracked driver on Thursday and injured eye and WD on Friday. Not the US Open he was looking for.

Thanks! That statement must have have been written by a PA or management company. What 20 something talks like that?  
 

I suppose he was certain of missing the cut, so fair enough.

At the point he WD he could not know he would miss the cut. Unfortunate but 6 over with plenty of holes left he could have made the cut.

Yeah, but his eye wasn’t getting any better. Six over for the day and shooting two under the last eight holes. If he thought he had a shot and the eye wasn’t bad enough, he would probably have tried. I don’t think people can do the Tiger blaming on the WD.

    • The guy pretty much knows what he's doing.  But as you said, possibly not for us mere mortals.  Though I do use this swing sometimes in the wind.  And I'm as mortal as anyone...
    • From what I've heard him say in interviews, it comes from the fact that he drills loads of punch shots, and it just kind of stuck in the full swing... It does work for him and I assume his coaching staff are cool with it, but I'm fully invested in the idea that what works for pros might not be a good idea for the rest of us mortals. I've seen some coaches say that working on post-impact positions (such as "straighten your arms in the follow-through") can lead to tension, which can be harmful. I certainly notice some tension when doing this finish in a full swing (it feels as if I need to decelerate the club more consciously),  but at first glance it hasn't had any negative effect on my shots, but rather the opposite...
    • Looks good to me too. It obviously works well for him. I suppose it keeps the ball under the wind better for those European courses?  I happen to like his putting grip as well….I’ve adapted it lately
    • I really like Tommy Fleetwood's three-quarter finish, both aesthetically and in terms of the feeling of control it provides. I haven't found any good technical discussions on potential trade-offs and risks. My current instructor is not against it, but he hasn't elaborated on the topic.  I plan to do a little statistical experiment where I try a three-quarter vs. a full finish at the range. In the meantime, what are your thoughts?
    • It's not the handicaps we're concerned about....we know that's going to be accurate. It's the weekly and overall year-end competition we're concerned about. We're thinking average scores will be artificially lower than they actually should be. Players just turn in their gross scores and the software does all the calculating after someone (meaning me) plugs in everyone's gross scores hole by hole. There's no way 99% of these guys would be able to figure out which holes they get strokes on and how many. Since I'm considered the numbers guru, I'm the one elected to figure this stuff out and will ultimately be the one who makes the decision (and get the bitching afterwards). I'm leaning towards agreeing with @iacas though.
