Poor Rory. Must be sobering to experience first hand how big a chasm there is between him and Scottie. I think Scottie snuffed him out to a point where even his driver quit on him. He and Jordan probably out there in the wilderness playing Marco/Polo looking for their way back. 

The fair-weather Rory didn't do well. Maybe it's something with the nature of his swing, but his iron play and wedge game is not sharp. Also, his around the green stats this week were pretty poor for him. I always thought he was one of the better short game players. He just can't put the complete game together.

I don't get that. Just because someone isn't outwardly emoting their emotions after every shot doesn't mean they do not want to be there.

This take and support reasoning in this article (not the writer but the radio host) is as dumb as a box-a-rox. It is a 100% take by someone who has little to no understanding or depth of the actual golf being played. I am picturing the guy or girl who spends more time in front of the mirror trying out different outfits to wear for the round than warming up at the range.  

They are comparing him to Arnie, Jack, Greg, Phil and Tiger as guys who were the face of the PGA Tour. They all do have more charisma than Scottie. I enjoy watching Scottie play golf. I think he gets appreciated by more of those who are seriously into the weeds about golf. I am not sure he appeals to your casual golf fan. They might someone else more exciting to watch. Especially if they are into the social media stuff. If golf wants to have someone as the face of golf, with the intent of bringing in more people to the game, then it probably isn't Scottie. The issue is, Scottie is so much better than the next person right now, it is hard to push the more charismatic guy when they do not win. 

PGA Tour really got lucky having 5 people span multiple generations that were good and charismatic. They finally hit a time where the best player doesn't have that combo.

We have too many casual 'fans' anyway. Good riddance. 

All hail King Sceff, repeller of the casual fan! Heh heh.

Can you imagine what the press would do to Ben Hogan if he was playing in his prime today? Cold and aloof. But I would love to watch him play!

    • I set out to pick 5 but then the brakes failed. Like completely. No particular order:                                                                 Cliffhanger Avatar Die Hard Mission Impossible 7, 5, 6,1 Bourne Identity  Terminator Predator First Blood Saving Private Ryan Police Story  Rush Hour Shanghai Noon Friday Enemy Behind the Gates The Good, The Bad... Unforgiven Chariots of Fire Godfather II Jurassic Park Lord of the Rings (All) Dune 1 and 2 Training Day Snatch Ocean's Eleven Jerry Mcguire Good Will Hunting Shawsh. Redemp As Good As It Gets Dumb and Dumber Wedding Crashers The Grudge The Ring Evil Dead (New) The Exorcist (Old) Paranormal Activity -1   I'm certain I'm missing a few.. heh heh.  
    • Day 2 - More grip and setup. Tried a few swing thoughts since the grip and setup stuff is complete once I start the backswing.
    • Two made the cut. My point isn’t to change any opinions, it’s for accuracy. If anything it further supports your opinion because PGAT players did better than your percentages.
    • OK, then instead of "PGAT Players" we can just say "Non-LIV Players".  I'm not sure that changes my opinion much. unless all 21 PGA Pros missed the cut which would dramatically impact the percentage of PGAT Players making the cut throwing more advantage to the "Non-LIV" group.
    • Day 67. Played my first 18 of the year. Not a great score but hit some really good shots for me. Highlights include a chip in for birdie, couple good drives, but even better for me a couple 6 iron approach shots landing on the green. Perhaps some of the practice is paying off 🙂
