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.

    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
