Anyone watching?  I like watching these events and the NCAA’s as well.  Match play is great to watch.

Is it on now?  I'd love to watch, a young man from my home club is now 2 up with 7 to play, I'd love to see it live.

I’m watching a recording of the Round of 32. Not sure if they are televising the Round of 16?

Wait, Round of 16 is tomorrow at 11:00 on Peacock, then at 12:00 on the Golf Channel.

No, the 16 is over, tomorrow is the round of 8, tee times starting at 930, semifinals begin at 200.  Ill have to record the telecast, I think I'm playing tomorrow.  My young friend won again this afternoon, really impressive play against some really good players.

I changed the title. Two things.

  • Please include the year, as this event occurs every year, so…
  • It's not the Men's U.S. Amateur. It's open to anyone, of any gender.

The U.S. Women's Amateur, on the other hands, is not. And includes the word "Women's."

Not sure what you mean. No, pretty busy.

Right. But they are televising it in the morning.  I don’t know why they do that? I suspect it’s the PGA.

Anyway, who are you watching/rooting for?

Alex Price plays at my home club, his dad is on the bag.  I've known his mom and dad for more than 25 years, great people, and Alex is a really nice kid.  Alex is the only Div III player still playing, a real underdog.

the past couple of weeks, I've been watching a lot of the NCAA's and Amateur Tournaments on the golf channel and i like watching them because even though they are "amateur's" they are so damn good!!!!!!!!   but even they do make some mistakes, but their fixes are good too!!       

I think a lot of it, for me anyways, is even though my golf game sucks!!  I'm always trying to learn from everyone!  even if they are on TV.  

But it also makes me think our game of golf has a damn good future because of these people

One of the strangest moments on Sunday was Ben Carr going for the green on the 13th after Bennett went OB.

I couldn’t believe Wilcox didn’t stop and talk to Carr after Bennett was lying 4 in the rough just off the green.

While not a Tin Cup moment, it sure would have been the time for the caddie to implore a wedge-wedge layup and win the hole.

I actually enjoyed this more than the BMW. Cantlay’s bunker shot on 18 was impressive. But my goodness he’s a bore. I was pulling for Carr, still a great fight to come back from down 5 to the 36th hole.

Felt the same way. A big wow moment for a missed opportunity!

    • I don’t think they’re being overlooked. I’m assuming based on the drawing that back on the line relief is probably unavailable and @DaveP043 mentioned stroke and distance.
    • That’s true. They’ve quite probably done him a favour in a roundabout way.
    • Day 206.  I played 18 with some friends today.  I shot an 85, not great, but not a bad outing either. 
    • He could earn more than that if he captains a "Japan team" potentially in the LIV series. Them canning all the Japanese players though may say that they've stopped going after Hideki.
    • I played my second round of 18 holes in over six years today. The other time was in November 2018 when I was in severe pain. I shot I think 91 that day? Anyway, it's not a day I want to remember frankly. Today on the other hand, is. I shot an 85 at a course I've never played before despite hitting five balls OB off the tee with driver. We played the white tees which are 69.6, 125. The course is part of PGA National and is named the Estate.  I got up and down over and over and over again all day, at an unsustainable rate frankly. I was getting up and down from really brutal spots too, but that just goes to show how terrible my full swing is. Oh well. I'm trying my best.   I hit a couple drivers before teeing off and here's what I'm packing if anyone was interested in seeing. Like I said, I hit five shots off the tee OB, including from the first tee, which is always fun doing in front of a bunch of strangers who will never see you again.  Anyway, I'm pretty excited I managed to shoot 85 in spite of getting zero favors from my full swing. I was hitting my driver only 220 most of the day. I hit 2 or 3 about 250, but most were around 220. My worst ones went like 200ish. Pretty brutal. All my OB shots were short pushes that flew maybe 200 yards before disappearing into the void forever. Anyway, it's a start. I've done so much rehab, needle work, and exercise these last 4-5 months (and really the last 1.5 years). My body felt pretty amazing out there. Very very little pain. This is a wonderful thing, and I do not take that for granted. I worked so damn hard to get back here. This was golf day no.17 for me since returning June 14th, and I have now played 54 holes total in that span. So I want to remind myself just how little golf I've actually played and that being terrible at the game is pretty much what I should expect at this point. 85 in that light should probably be considered good I guess. On a side note, I think this was my dad's and his friends' first time ever watching somebody play by the rules of golf or something. They were shocked how I refused to mulligan it up with them. I think maybe they learned something about the game from me today in that regard, in a good way.  85 at an unknown course with five OB tee balls. Fingers crossed I can clean that up soon. Otherwise, it really is amazing to be back finally.  Heard this one on the ride home and I think I'll probably always associate this song with today.  Cheers, guys. Thanks for reading. 🙂
