So far he has proven me wrong. He is hanging in there quite well, but we will see.

Proved you wrong all day. And before that I’m winning three majors and 12 PGA Tour events.

Brooks just said he likes his driver!  😏

Dude! You had three years of basic college physics! Three years! That’s f**king nothing!  Stop acting like you’re Sir Isaac F-ing Newton! You are not that smart! The guys who design the clubs heads ha

I have thought about this off and on the past two to three years.  We have the "no sixes" challenge (or, if your handicap is high enough, no sevens challenge).  My best round ever was my only no-sixes

Yep, he did. Surprisingly, I'm usually not wrong.

I can't remember the last time a major champion, or any tournament winner, thanked their caddie in the speech at the end.  Other than a few minutes ago, of course.

This is wrong. Career earnings from tournaments is like 7 million?

That's just filthy

Before today his 2019 to 2021 career was 11.8M.  So pretty close to 14 after today's tournament.

I see now. It used to be easier to get earnings on the PGA Tour site. It’s a couple of taps more to find it than when the site was less complicated.

Why is it wrong? Before the British Open it was $11,886,526.

British Open prize money $2.07 million. Thats about $13.95 million.

I was looking at an ESPN table that only went back two years. Should have checked PGA Tour but hate the website’s design. Not that ESPN is any better.

Unsurprisingly, you were proven dead wrong on this one. Seems to be a pattern. That in itself wouldn't normally bother me. But the fact that you feel the need to patronise Spieth is a bit off. He did everything you said he couldn't do, but you said he was "hanging in".

The PGATour.com one is probably better :-)

I think it happens pretty much all the time. Lowry, for example.

I'm not sure if Hideki Matsuyama thanked his caddy but his caddy thanked the course!

The PGA Tour used to have a very nice and easy to use website.  I think this was back when Elin was married to Tiger.

Good point.   I don't remember that one, but in retrospect, you are right, it should happen all the time.

Yeah, that was pretty cool too :-)

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.
