Winners get more clicks. 

John Rahm got quite a bit more attention for his WD on Sunday after testing positive for Covid than Cantlay did for winning.

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

The latter.

You've been talking about who is the most "popular," which is present with a little recent past in there. It has little to do with how or what people will be in five years.

If you read my post #13 I specifically mentioned potential.

Just give it up man. 😄 You had a bad take and you've like quintupled down on it.

Brooks could also potentially bring millions to the PGA Tour. Again, Brooks is quite possibly the better player. He's been injured, but he's got four majors to Bryson's one. He's a star in his own right. He too was on the Ryder Cup team.

It's a weird point you're making, again, because a good chunk of Bryson's "popularity" is directly tied to his feud with Brooks. Brooks's name is even first in the topic we have here:

Didn't watch the match, but like some others, believe the animosity between the two leading up to Friday was made up for promotional value only!  "Never liked him"----- "his comments about me disgusting" ???  Really, especially when the two seemed to be becoming quite friendly with each other pretty recently!  Surprised they didn't both show up for the opening ceremony with boxing gloves on!

This is my take on the match:

I watched the opening tee shots before I had to leave. At least Bryson started with brooksy cupcakes. Nothing was really exciting about it. I decided I wasn’t missing anything after that point.

The course looked spectacular. The play not so much. Everything looked forced and scripted. Brooks made some nice recovery shots and Bryson could not make a putt. These guys are just playing the rivalry for the media. End of story. Nice to have it on DVR where you can hit the FF button.

Or delete it, which is what I think I’ll do when I get home.

Well, I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I first watched it. ... Having typed that. I watched this again last night. For no particular reason, and I have to say I enjoyed it. Even knowing the outcome. The format is a little different. I think it could use some tweaks. My first suggestion is get rid of the carts. I think it would give everyone more time to interact if they walked. 

I've said this before and I'll stand by it, both of these guys are good for the game. 

I also think the animosity between them was real. I still think they don't really like each other. The Ryder Cup made them team-mates and that helped smooth things over a bit. I also think that there may have been somebody in each of their camps who told them they were coming off like big old cry babies to the public. 

Over-all, I hope they keep doing these matches. I don't think they will ever be the kind of mega-event that golf hoped for. They are entertaining to watch and I for one will probably keep watching them.

    • Day 13: Mirror work again. Still on set up. I think my hips are more over my heels now, so now I’m mostly focused on having my knees bent a bit more. 
    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
