If Tiger makes the cut this week, he will be the only player in history to make 24 consecutive cuts. The others at 23 are Couples and Player.

They always talk about elevation changes and how hilly ANGC is. Are there any videos or some kind of footage that helps those who only see the course through screens get a better sense of them? We see some on the cast of course, but elevation is often difficult to spot on TV.

I would add from personal experience that TV doesn't do it justice. I thought it was ridiculous in some places.

Tiger with the long putter?  Seems like he is just sampling Zal's putter. His own regular putter is resting on his thigh right?

Here  is the  forecast for  Augusta  on Thursday and Thursday night. If this  comes true they will be  playing alot  of  holes  on Friday. Rest  of the weekend will be sunny and  pleasant temps

 

Thursday
A chance of showers and thunderstorms, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 7am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall. High near 77. Windy, with a south wind 24 to 26 mph, with gusts as high as 40 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
Thursday Night
Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm before 8pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 52. West wind 15 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 29 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Same dumb schtick since joining.

You might take a look at google earth.  Along the bottom you can find the ground surface elevation of your cursor.  I just checked, and #10 drops just about 100 feet from tee to green, #11 drops another 50 feet or so.  If you go to a course you know, you might be able to kind of "calibrate" how much that really means.

Walking up 10, is an eye opening experience, you don’t really get the feel of that elevation on TV. I was pretty tired walking up it.

I only meant the image of Tiger with a broomstick. With his current body, who knows what he’ll put in the bag.

Does anyone want LIV to win? wouldn't mind Neiman to win

Anyone got any fantasy leagues for UK?! Masters league is only for US 😡

Not a betting man unfortunately so never put money on 

I wouldn't mind Rahm or even Koepka. 
I got Niemann in the betting pool I'm in. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I didn’t think it was extra as extreme as people make it out to be.

I like those 3 as well. I am struggling with some lower back pain, so seeing Nieman's name in print makes me cringe 🤣. Love watching him, but that side bend can be painful to watch.

I like Hovland too, but he hasn't shown up on leaderboards much lately, has he?

    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
    • Day 24: putting practice at home 
    • And yet we both made par.  Maybe drive for dough isn't accurate after all  Definitely had some helping wind on mind, it was blowing 15-20mph all day. Yours looks like a fun hole too. Looks like a couple different ways it can be played.
