Yeah I don’t see them setting up the course for BDC. I’m sure they’ll want there to be some holes that BDC can let loose on, but also holes where he can’t just bomb and gouge.

Just one man's opinion. 

FFS, man.

Brooks, FWIW, gets plenty of attention as well. He has 4x the number of majors as Bryson, was just featured in a big interview in Golf Digest (maybe Golf), etc.

I think your first comment is ridiculous. They’re not going to set the course up any differently at all for a 12-hole one-day match. They might choose the tees or the hole locations… that’s almost about it.

Personally, I'd be more interested in tuning in to these events if they had players with better personalities for TV.  Justin Thomas, Phil (obviously), Peyton Manning was good, etc..  Bryson was painful to listen to at the last one IMO.  Maybe Brooks will be good, but i doubt it.

I will probably pass on this one. The last one was pretty painful to watch and cured me of wanting more.

Definitely a pass in my opinion. If you are going to spice it up for TV make it more entertaining. For example add a shot clock, alternate shot with a real terrible amateur, or a worst ball scramble with partners that have a sense of humor. For these two guys just give them a few "gotchas" each.

Choosing tee and hole locations advantageous to BAD is how I expect they'll set the course up. Why so upset about another person's opinion? In today's environment, social media rules and no male golfer rules social media for golf more than DeChambeau. He's everyone's foil, the guy we often love to hate. But no other currently playing pro brings in casual fans like Mr. Funny Hat. In any case, it should be a fun match to watch.

I don’t see anyone being upset here. I too don’t get why you think if BDC is the needle mover the course will be ‘set up’ for him. Whether he wins or loses the impact will be the same. They’re just gonna play 12 holes of golf. Not much else to read in to this.

What does that even mean? You do realize Brooks plays pretty good golf, too, right? And hits it pretty far?

And why would it matter if Bryson wins? That he's playing is what would matter if your theory was right.

Nobody's upset here (unless you are). I just think your opinion is so far from reality that I wanted to reply to it.

Tiger is still ahead of Bryson. Phil might even be. And Brooks isn't far behind. Bryson without Brooks wouldn't be nearly as big of a thing: their "popularity" is quite linked.

And again, if he PLAYS, then he's done his "social media" job. They don't need him to win. If he's the golfer everyone loves to hate, you could make a more compelling case, perhaps, that they should set the course up so it favors Brooks, whatever that means, so he whines about stuff and plays the role everyone wants him to play.

Your take here is just a bad take all around.

Yep.

Over the next few years we'll see how it pans out.  I'd wager on Bryson being "the guy" for the next 5 years or so.

Ok. But please explain why the course would be set up for Bryson. That’s what I’m not getting. What difference would that make?

And they're going to tie.  I propose arm wrestling as a tiebreaker.

Brooks has a tender wrist. That’s a no go.

Bryson's game is fun (at least watching him bomb driver), but there are a lot of good, young players right now, and I don't get the sense that he is a generational superstar that the PGA Tour is going to latch onto.

They both have tender egos... so they can't ego wrestle.  Maybe a duel at sunset...

Bottom line:  It'll be interesting to see what the TV ratings are like.  That'll show if anybody really cares...

If this is a pay per view event they'd have to pay ME to watch it and even then I'd probably manage to find something more interesting to do, like reorganize my sock drawer or something.

Then you've been misinterpreting what I've been saying, or I presented it poorly. If it's the latter, my apologies.

With his social media presence and recent foray into the long drive championship I disagree, but we shall see what we see.

    • I mentioned Radovich vs NFL - Radovich seeking compensation after having joined another league and was forever banned from the NFL in any form, even later in life trying to join as a coach or something. SC sides with Radovich The article I linked mentions the fairly recent NCAA vs Alston - on restricting college player compensation: "the NCAA is acting in violation Section 1 of the Sherman Act, which prohibits any “contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerce.”"   NCAA v. Alston: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning? In its unanimous 9-0 decision in NCAA v. Alston, the Supreme Court upheld a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that struck down NCAA caps on student-athlete academic... How about LA Colliseum vs NFL, when the raiders were blocked from moving to LA in the 80s due to a rule that required 3/4 vote of teams in the NFL. LA Colliseum wins saying rule was violating Sherman Anti Trust There are dozens more.   The common thing here to me is that, it doesn't matter if there is a "rule" even if it was agreed to if the rule is illegal.
    • You aren't saying anything unreasonable. For some reason this is a very emotionally charged topic and it brings out people who want things to be a certain way regardless of the law.  Five minutes on Google reading law blogs shows the players have at least pretty good anti-trust case.   The Supreme Court ruled against the NFL in the 1950s,  when they blacklisted players who played in a rival league.  The PGA Tour colluding with the European Tour, World Golf Rankings, the entities that organize majors and Ryder Cup and potentially going against their charter as a non-profit are all going to be brought up.  I am sure the PGA Tour has consulted with lawyers and will have counterpoints. A lot of it will probably depend on judges. I would guess the current administration would be more amenable to the player's suit than most as they are already pursuing companies over non-competes and collusion. You shouldn't even need Google for at least one example.  Trump and the USFL vs the NFL.  They won but weren't awarded damages. Otherwise you could Google and find this case as the first thing listed. Radovich v. National Football League :: 352 U.S. 445 (1957) :: Justia US Supreme Court Center Radovich v. National Football League  
    • What precedent? You keep saying this but you haven’t cited examples of where a rival league won a suit against a major league for anti-trust in the US. Name the sport, the leagues involved and cite the lawsuit. Right now your devils advocacy seems just like arguing for argument sake. But you haven’t provided any concrete facts just your disdain for the PGAT.
