I hope it comes down to Brooks and Bryson in the final pairing on Sunday. That's a must watch.

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

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

A bigger and more critical objection would be including “Men’s” in the title.

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. 

That would be great, but hopefully it won't devolve into what we just saw on the KFC Tour qualifier a few days ago.  

Just to be safe, prohibit their respective fathers from caddying that day.

This is worth noting:  the event isn't the "Men's Open," it's the "Open."  You don't have to be a man to attempt to qualify.  This isn't meant to disparage anyone who has attempted to qualify, but rather is to point out that it is open to all.

That's why I removed "men's" from the title just now. I was about to post the same thing.

He’s so dramatic. 

He is just setting the stage to complain if he gets caught up in a crowd rushing up the fairway like at the PGA.

DJ (that's him right?) and Fleetwood hitting 3Ws out of greenside bunkers. I wonder who bought this up and why?

I'm gonna go with Finau winning at 1 over.

The last thing I’d want is to have Bryson and BK paired on Sunday for the win. I certainly don’t want either of them to win. And it’s not like an MMA or boxing match. Just a couple of whiners who don’t like each other. I’d much rather see BK have a good lead then lose it spectacularly. I’d also like to see Finau finally win. Of course it’d be epic if Phil was leading on Sunday….but that’s not gonna happen. Spieth…another good one. But BK and Bryson? Meh.

Doh, it says right there in the post. It's the white outfit. I just assumed DJ.

I could get behind Finau. But, if there was one I’d like to see win but won’t, it would be Harold Varner III - other than Phil, of course.

In his defense, I’ve had two knee surgeries on my left knee. Certain motions can be very painful. I could walk flats and even up stairs without any pain or issue, but a moderate incline or downstairs was painful and even awkward. It felt like my muscles stopped working to protect the knee (which is technically correct). So you can crap on him for his demeanor and general snotty attitude, with which I would agree on, but give him some slack on the knee.

That's fair. I agree. 👍

    • Has anyone successfully got a round off of a GG Live system via computer in the past few days?  I'm wondering if Wednesday's failure was related to some sites disappearing briefly from the internet (although I was able to access the GG site).   Right now, mine is just recharging so I can use it on Sunday.  Would be nice to get the stats for today.
    • Day 149.  I played 18 today with two friends.  A very narrow course (the "Babe" course in Industry Hills), I had three lost balls that I don't think would have left the playing area if I had hit them at my home course.   I should have lost a fourth but sadly found it (my recovery was sufficiently difficult, and I tried playing high percentage shots, too, that I hit my fourth from closer to the tee than my provisional landed).  I still shot a 93 and hit many greens with full swings, even if they weren't all for in-regulation (but I still had 6 GIR).   Note to self:  play narrow courses a bit more, and get better at these tee shots. Also I feel I putted well but I'm not going to gamble trying to get the stats off the GG.
    • That's Ok, but not a very ambitious goal at all. It should be pretty straightforward to get within 10%. 30 ft is a typical distance for a first putt (even for the pros), and you should hardly ever 3-putt those, so the key is to be within 3 ft (or 10%). Put it another way, when you have a cross-country (or cross green) putt of 90 ft, a decent result is to be around 6ft, or 9ft if you want, so 10%.  20% puts you. way too far out. To the OP, I was the worst putter in the world when I started. It took me almost 4 years of playing 9 holes after work on Fridays to get my first par, because I was on very few greens (1 or maybe 2 at most per 9), but because I was 3-putting from everywhere. I fixed this by practicing dialing in the speed correctly. And that also means hitting the ball reliably with the center of the face. Then hone yours skills on reading greens, but the most important part remains controlling the speed. FWIW, some 15 years after I made that first par, putting is the strength of my game and I only 3-putt about 2% of the holes according to my stats (in GolfPad), or about 1 hole every 3 rounds, on average.  You too can do it: it's much easier than drastically improving one's long game!
    • What constitutes slow play for me is when I'm on a hot course and not playing so well, and the group in front will never be invited to play speed golf in the Olympics.  My mind begins to wander to a beach, a cold gin & tonic and my shady side patio.
