When I first started running my calves and ankles were so screwed up, so sore, so stiff… I had a hard time walking DOWN stairs. It might take 30 seconds. It was awkward AF.

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

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.

Agreed. The problem with Bryson versus Brooks is that they are both heels to a degree. You need a face to go up against a heel, like Spieth or Rory paired with Patrick Reed in the final group on Sunday.

It's certainly a popular cliche these days, but nonetheless I'll say it: I felt that (phantom pains in my legs).

This is why i can't run on concrete. My legs just get destroyed. Knees hurt, calf and thigh muscles will ache for days. Treadmill, not nearly as much.

I know we’re not even through the first day yet and that the guys playing well right now had favorable conditions this morning (softer greens), but the scoring right now makes me wonder a few things:

- is this Torrey is as hard as Torrey back in ‘08?

- are the guys that much better nowadays?

- has equipment had something to do with it?

- a combination of all the above? 

- none of the above?

Im happy we arent talking about a  bunch of pitch and  putt par 5's and driveable  par 4's. I  have a feeling par will be a good score when its  over. Koepka  did  fine. Hope  Bubba watson gets  under  par.

Hard to do. With the equipment  like  it  is  now. Courses should  be at  least 7800 yards. I did forget to mention Rahm. My num 3 choice.

Phil ain't winning this thing, guys. C'mon now…

Draft Kings is so nice, They are offering me $0.012 for each dollar to exit my bet.  Only a 98.8% loss if I cashed out.  Should I double down?  😜

Helicopter got pretty close to the shore there.

Better stocked than a big box store.

 

Watch out for the monsters in the mist - I saw it in a movie.

We have one like that around here.  It certainly feels like it's 7800 yards from the clubhouse to the practice tee.

I find NBC’s 4D feature underwhelming. There’s a drop in resolution and fps. All those cameras I wonder if it takes away viewing room from fans. 
 

Anyone know why so many pro golfers are endorsed by software companies - supply chain, HR, CRM, ERP, etc… ?

Good greens, perfect weather for golf. Even then -1 gets a tie for 11th. If you add 10mph on to the breeze then par becomes a very good score. I watched about 2 hours early and an hour late on and the quality of golf today was great.

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.

    • Day 584 - August 3, 2021 Hit fifteen or twenty balls at Chautauqua between lessons. Wrists while I turn, 1/2 swing (or 3/4). Whatever it is, it's "less." Hit some good ones.
