Players ratings down. Its  not  because  of Tiger because  he didnt  play last  year either. My feeling ratings are down is  because its so boring seeing the  players  no longer challenged with difficult golf  courses due to the equipment making  jokes  of the  courses. My solution would  be  moving  back tee  boxes, deepening  bunkers, narrowing  fairways, converting  short  par 5's to par  4's and lining  fairways and  greens with deep thick rough. Too many birdies and eagles get  boring after awhile. It would  be  like watching  baseball and seeing  23 homeruns a game. Eventually its  meaningless.

 

 

 

"Last year, 4.14 million tuned in to see Scheffler cruise to a five-shot victory, but only 3.53 million watched the World No. 1 win at TPC Sawgrass on Sunday.

Even more disheartening for the tour and NBC is that this was the lowest-rated Players broadcast for any completed Sunday final round in a decade."

So Wyndham Clark, admitted that the 3rd round ball movement incidence 'doesn't look great' when showed on TV when in the scoring room/tent. He said he didn't know or could tell at the time of the incidence that the ball moved when he grounded his club. Okay, I get it and I guess he gets a pass for not knowing.

But what I am not fully understanding is why did he not correct the score or DQ himself if already signed the card when it was brought to his attention? And for that matter, why didn't the rules officials assign a penalty? Did EVERYONE shrug their shoulders and move on? What am I missing here?

You can be rest assured the eyes will be on him now from the arm chair rules committee. PGAT needs another Patrick Reed.

Check out rule 20.2c.  It may be that the officials decided that any movement noted from the long telephoto video was too small to have been seen by the naked eye.

He was wild off the tee a lot and had to do a few rescue shots. You’re not going to score well having to add strokes to get out of trouble.

The article is six years old, you know, right?

Heck they were still playing the Players in May when that article was published.

I am all for making the course much more challenging.
I want to see the best golfers play the hardest courses and see who rises to the challenge.
Watching a golfer will at -20 is tantamount to the NBA all star game. No defense all offense and boring as can be. 

YMMV

Nelly Korda  on a  hot  streak. Won last  3 starts and all in comeback fashion

 

 

Are you going to hold the same energy towards the LPGA Tour that you have towards the PGA Tour whenever the winning score is well below par?

Winning score was -20 and the cut was -4.

 

You claimed that The Players was "easy peasy" and the winning score there was -20 with the cut at -1.

The Players had much better weather too, so the fact that the winning score at the LPGA event was -20 despite poor conditions means that it was even easier than the event you called "easy peasy" on the PGA Tour.

Back to the same  ol easy  peasy this week. If a sand trap isnt a  penalty why are they even on a  course?

    • Birdied #13 at Quail Brook, which is new. Blocked tee shot right which ended up being fine because I didn't hit it well enough to reach the fescue. Had 110 to the flag and was ready to hit a 3/4 GW to it (even tagged the club) but felt the wind pick up behind me so I decided to club down to the SW and hit it to 4'. Lipped out a 15-footer on #17 for birdie for a tap-in par that also would have been new.
    • I've had a couple of good shots since the last time I posted, 1 a 90 yard approach that I manufactured with my gap wedge that I knocked to about 18 inches, 1 a ~140 yard 8 iron that I got to about 3 feet (pictured), but this week my best shot was a 60 yard pitch. It wasn't anything special but I did hit it out of a divot, so that's what I'm more proud of. Plus, i didn't really have any memorable shots this week.
    • Just a  follow up, I had the best lessons ever on gears with the best instructor! Wish I would’ve made the drive earlier in the year but put it together during a golf trip. Gears was incredible to see your swing in 3d with all the necessary data. I’ve had very few formal lessons in the past and a couple online but nothing compared to working with Erik. He made it  very comfortable and relaxed, patient with all my  questions and showed some swing comparisons of pros swings.    Our main focus was getting the pelvis to move in a better pattern and when he first pushed on my hip with that pvc going back it was like a “wow” moment. And to see the affects in real time just made it quicker to adapt and learn how to find it again, however, even without gears I’m sure it would’ve been an awesome lesson..it’s just nice for some players to see the facts, no debate… At the end of the 1st session I was shocked at the video seeing my pelvis move better, hips open, no early extension. I was literally like I can’t believe that video capture is me! I’m glad I had a second session the following morning, just to reinforce the earlier ideas and work on the next piece to complete the movement, and we still had plenty of time to mess around with lower priority ideas for later. I left that afternoon armed with a practice plan, he took extra time to show me what to look for on my own video and I got a copy of LSW. We’ll continue on evolvr for checkups until another road trip for sure! I also just ordered the stack system with his discount code to work on some speed training as well.    Just wanted to share my appreciation for all Erik’s help and anyone finding there way here like I did over the winter to give it a try!
