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.

    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
    • The ace wins, but really they lose when you consider the cost of drinks compared to the small amount won for closest in two!
    • Yes, I'm going to go through all the tutorials. I also started the flight plan to look at Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia, but it was too late. Let me get the hang of everything and I'll check out the mutlitplayer. MSFS has already used up 100 GB I suspect it'll get to 200GB.
    • I actually haven't done it, yet.  Used to be in the Traffic menu, there was a section to see online multiplayers or friends--but I haven't been in that menu in months.  I think then you can just get together and decide on a place to spawn, and you'll see one another and can possibly chat on headset.  Not sure if more is needed for the chat piece.  I know I can see my one random friend's online status and his scores on the landing challenges.  Maybe there's some option to "find" them in the sim?  I'll look more into all the multiplayer stuff tonight.  But friend me if you want, and we'll see if we can figure it out. I don't have it on my XBox...pretty limited space on that guy these days.  But, yeah, I bet it'd drain controller batteries like crazy if it's constantly rumbling.  Not sure how much flying, or sim-flying you've done, but if you're just starting out, maybe some of the AI-assist options around trim and power/mix control could help.  The training items seem to be pretty informative, too.   Tying it into golf, I've checked out a bunch of famous courses...everything in the Monterrey peninsula area, a lot of the UK, Bandon, etc.  I usually start at some random city, then pick a course I want to 'play', takeoff, find the course and give it a flyover, then land at the nearest airport in a little 'pretend mission' like I'm going on a golf buddy trip in my private plane. .  Then next time, takeoff from there and pick the next course.  I just made the hop from northern Ireland over to the west coast of Scotland a few nights ago.  In that part of the world, if you enable live weather, it can turn into a real challenge in smaller planes.
    • Day 32 (28 Jul 21) - Played nine today with the 5yr old grandson.  We got back before the rain started.  Used this practice round to work on ball striking and carry distance.  Using the Approach S20, I had planned to used the back distance of the greens as the "carry" factor on the approaches.  Of course if the pin was in the front, then I used the middle distance (center of green) to figure what I needed to carry.  Planned well, executed poorly as the round had only 1 GIR and 4 nGIR.
