OK. It’s NBC’s drone camera. Its resolution sucks. Just notice on the wide angle overhead shots. The picture quality is terrible. 
 

Throw in the 4D camera it feels like NBC is using old technology and not keeping up. 
 

OTOH it spent a chunk of money on the Olympics.

Phil isn’t winning this tournament.

Too soon to call, @Shorty? 😜

What are the odds he shoots a 54 tomorrow while everyone else fails to break 80?

Oh well, maybe in Brookline.  Phil was part of that Ryder Cup winning team, so maybe (I'm grasping at straws at this point).

What is Phil 12 back? I think he needed a better Saturday than he did to have a chance. Hell, Jordan Spieth shot 68 today and isn’t even in contention and he’s only 6 back.

I’ve just watched the highlights from last night. It’s a good leaderboard for tonight, some of the big boys are looming. I was very impressed with Henley’s unflappability. His short game was very tidy. Louis or Rory FTW please

Anyone even or better has a real chance. I took another look at the final posted scores from yesterday. Wow, today has some big names in contention. Very cool afternoon watching for father’s day.

The guy, the father, with the most heartfelt family that runs out and enthusiastically greets him on the 18th green!  That's who I want to win. I'm a softie on Father's Day who loves that scenario.

Saturdays round had a few wild moments with Harman 4 putting
and the Pin was a bit unfriendly to Sergio and Rory.
I missed the shot that Rham hit which I heard the announcers say something about 
hitting the Flag.
 

Sergio hits a great chip shot which one hopped hits the pin and came straight back 30 yards
from where he hits the shot from.... 🤔

Rory nailed the pin on his approach on a par 5 and the ball jolted to the right about 60 ft... :cry:

Then there was the 4 putt for birdie from 5 feet....

I lol’d yesterday at McIlroy’s post round interview when the interviewer mistook someone else’s baby for McIlroy’s. I was thinking while they panned over to the cute little one, that doesn’t look like McIlroy’s kid, did they do due diligence? All you have to do is take out the black slate from your pocket and type out McIlroy baby and compare what’s on the phone to the monitor. Low journalism standards.

Re:  Bryson DeChambeau at #8 ... 175 yard par-3 and he hits a pitching wedge.

There's a 175 yard par-3 at a course I play regularly;  depending on the day, I'll hit a 3H or 4H to get on the green.  It's a different game, isn't it?

35 degree pitching wedge?  😁

If Bryson and Brooks end up in a playoff, I might actually start to believe we're living in a simulation.

    • Had to get working again. Video isn’t the best spot. Main point of work is to get rid of the lean into the ball, because it causes imbalance and other issues. Not sure why I thought of it this way, but my feel was to simply jump/post my left leg around impact. To go with this, I am continuing the work of flattening my take away. Going to try and work hard this winter (although I have kid #2 due in a month so who knows). Putting, I started by changing my grip to get away from the last stroke. I grabbed a meter long level to use as guide for creating more arc in the putt. I definitely was pushing out as I brought the club back. So, arc both ways and fine tuning the aim. I’ve always noticed that when I use the line of the ball, that I feel it’s aimed way left. Thus, could be a source of the push that has been happening occasionally. So trust the line and arc it. Definitely need to practice but initial results are positive. 
    • I play vokey SM8 wedges and Wilson C300 forged irons. Love my clubs and wouldn't change a thing about them.  I hit alot of balls. Probably about 200 range balls and 170 play balls per week.  I sharpen my grooves every 8 weeks but I imagine the excessive amount of hard range balls will wear the clubs out over time.  When is it time to get new clubs? 
    • New York Declares State of Emergency as Vaccine Mandate Chaos Looms Tens of thousands of hospital workers are likely to be fired on Monday when the state’s vaccine mandate kicks in. State data shows that 84 percent of the state’s 450,000 hospital workers are vaccinated, along with 83 percent of its 145,400 nursing home workers. Even still, that means as many as 94,000 workers are unvaccinated, leaving a potentially dire shortfall in workers from Monday.
