Yeah I don’t blame him. He probably just wants to enjoy watching it in his own comfort. 

I believe his accident would be almost as big of a topic as the tournament itself.

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

Well and honestly though I’m a huge Tiger fan…the wood-headed producers would probably cut away thinking we want to watch Tiger talk. I don’t. I want to watch the golf.

I don't know anything about the ins and outs of San Diego local politics, jurisdiction and all that. I wonder who started associating La Jolla with the course.

And like you pointed out earlier, if I’m banged up (and even if I’m not!), I’d rather watch the action from the comforts of my own home… bed/couch/recliner, fridge, bathroom, etc.

NBC wants a little ratings boost with Woods in the booth, but with social media, Woods can control the narrative of his recovery, at least social media is good for that kind of thing.

Great interview and perspective from Rahm today. Handled everything with class and very level headed. No link yet, but search it out later.

I know odds are against it.

Odds are against any single player.

Even in Woods in his prime, the odds were against him.

Phil peaked too early by winning the PGA.  /s

My brother looked up where the US Open was being played and his idiot phone told him Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

I thought you’d want to watch Mike Davis talk instead.

Tennis has usopen.org

Golf has usopen.com

Based on ICANN records, the USTA (or whomever) took usopen.org first, so golf had to go with usopen.com.

Yes.

The poor boy isn't a tennis fan. He asked me "who the hell is Billie Jean King."

Guess you had to be there.

For awhile there, I would do a search on "US Open" to get the leaderboard. I would get directed to the tennis site, while golf's US Open was being played. Bad search engine.

Edit: Also, Google wouldn't have much of a record of anything tennis in my search history, rarely looked up anything tennis.

I object to the "US" in the title of this thread.

Check the thread naming rules to see if you can, when the time is right, make the thread for the next major, the 2021 UKBOPBHMTQ&DDF at The Royal St George's Golf Club.

[please don't actually do that, as it will make searching for threads in the future harder.  Also I'm pretty sure the naming conventions would ask you to not do that, too]

Some betting odds, Phil kind of down there. Screen Shot 2021-06-14 at 9.38.11 PM.png

I don't know what you all are talking about.... Phil... come on?
Personally, I hope it comes down to Brooks and Bryson in the final pairing on Sunday. That's a must watch.

    • The issue is when this happens in a formal competition. Hard to protect the field by calling it for a single brief phrase.  I did call advice in a tournament a few weeks ago when one player helped the other make a 10 foot putt on the first hole. Afterwards the advice-giver checked with the committee and added two strokes to his score. The player who accepted the advice and made the putt did not.  
    • They know it's embedded because they saw it land and then cannot find it and the ground is soft. See USGA Embedded Ball FAQ.  Yes, if the ball is "known or virtually certain" lost in an abnormal course condition such as temporary water, then there is free relief referencing the point that the ball entered the abnormal course condition. However, soft ground is not temporary water. Water has to be visible.   Yes, they say, "leave it there, it might help". Maybe this one is not as difficult to call as other examples though. 
    • Thanks for the welcome. I'm figuring out the kid stuff. My kids are 6th grade and 3rd grade. I bought them a set of top flight clubs to share for now, but my 6th grader is really on the high end of height for the clubs, and I'm going to need a 2nd set. So my youngest one is all set for now, I just need to do some figuring on the oldest one.    As far as actually playing with them, I've got to get that figured out as well, and I'm interested to hear about others' experiences. We have a par 3 course nearby, and that's a good start.  Thus far, I've let them hit a shot off the tee, and then I ask them to take their ball up to the green. I've only had them out twice so far, and they had a blast, so it is something they seem to want to continue doing. Thanks Denny. This seems like a cool place. Yeah, I agree that club technology, especially for irons, hasn't changed that much in recent times. My biggest objection to my clubs is that as the offset gets bigger as I get to the 3 iron, it takes what is usually a mild draw and turns it into a much more pronounced draw bordering on a hook with the longest irons.
    • It’s like anything else, if you make a change and see improvement, then the change was worth it.  Its just golf. 
    • "Choose to do it all at once" is not in the rules. If you do that, you have played from a wrong place. The penalty is 2 strokes, or DQ if it was a serious breach. Usually a cart path is not "right next to" a penalty area, so relief from the cart path after dropping on it could be between the cart path and the penalty area.   It is a question of protecting the field because some players follow the correct procedure and even end up playing from the cart path when their cart path relief would have them closer to and maybe standing in the penalty area.
