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.

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

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 officially endorse the call. :-)

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 vote for more shots of the parasailers. And go, Rory!

Nice looking leaderboard. BDC 27 holes bogey free. Go Wolff!

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.

    • “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.”   Yeah, it sounds like your course at least considers golfers who are playing, i.e., if the “early” closing on Sunday is at 4 or 5, not many still trying to squeeze in a round would be disadvantaged. And then reopening the range at 11:30 on Monday, when the course itself doesn’t reopen until noon, likewise shows consideration.   Agreed, closing the range on Monday or Tuesday morning (especially with a posted reopening time) makes way more sense (to me anyway) than closing at 3 on Sunday.
    • Finally got a birdie on the index 1 on my home course, its my first ever and it came because of a mishit 9 iron, it's a 440 yard par 4 with a narrow dogleg at about the 220 yard from the tee mark. I had a good drive and left myself 150 yards out but I fatted a 9 iron about 90 yards. I hit a 56 degree wedge perfectly from 60 yards and it took two hops and fell straight in for my first ever hole out from any further than a nGIR distance. Delighted with the shot in what was a poor round
    • I'm getting a little leery of these pros where it looks like they downed three bottles of 5 hour energy before the record button is tapped.
    • I didn’t watch the video, but the thumbnail screenshot has him in position to hit a big block with that right elbow stuck behind him.
    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.
