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

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 .

Now that’s a poorly done video. Glad he’s excited…but not worth posting.🙂

It wasn’t good, you’re right.

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.

    • I sip an Italian Sports Drink out of a metal container while playing.  No sips if I make a bogey.  One sip if I make a par.  2 sips for a birdie.  Had an eagle yesterday... 3 sips.  Heaven forbid I have a hole in one!
    • In around '71, a friend of mine gave me $50 to write his algebra exam at Uni.  Of course I forgot all about that, until he stopped by to remind me. I was in the building where we were writing and had just finished one of my own. and then had dropped some acid. Didn't blink an eye. Just went on in and proceeded to pass that exam for him. But to take a drink while golfing and possibly screw up my game, not a chance.
    • Today I left home at 3:30 drove 20 minutes each way to the course, paid, putted for a few minutes while someone else finished the first hole (par 3), played 9 holes with a little bit of waiting on the 2nd and 8th holes and made it home by 6:00.  That was a decent pace of play day. And even then I worried that the single bend us was going to catch us and think we were playing too slow. I think he skipped the last 2 holes because I never saw him tee off on #8 while we teed off on #9.
    • When I was much younger golf was something to do when we were drinking.  Now that I am a little more mature I almost never drink when I golf. Probably because I play with my son more than anyone else. My son was our designated driver after a recent day trip with a couple friends.  Even then we didn't drink until the 19th hole.  Tomorrow we are playing in a charity scramble, so there is a chance I will have a couple beers during that round.
    • Today's finishing hole requires that most average golfers layup due to water beginning at 200 yards and requiring a 260 carry to clear it. The last time I played I hit a 4H into the water since fairways are dry and rolling. Today I hit a 6 iron pure and it stopped about 3 feet short of the water. That is as good a 6 that I can hit. And then I had 130 to the pin and hit an A-wedge to 3 feet. So after 2 consecutive best shots ever, I missed the birdie putt for the worst shot ever. I did however play the last 5 holes in 1 over after playing the first 4 in 10 over par (guessing as I quit counting on 1 hole).
