Is it safe to assume you feel the same way about Rory Sabbatini?

Sure. I don't

like him and Rory tends to act like a bit of an ass but in all honesty I watch to be entertained and he's entertaining. I will say Rory's act only works when he's playing well. Otherwise he just looks like an idiot. But I like to at least see different personalities on tour and Rory and Woody definitely fit that category.

I never heard about the "cheating" instance and would feel the same way as you if I had seen it. Woody otherwise is a guy that wears his emotions on his sleeve and I like him. He is honest in his answers and readily admits when he chokes....which seems to be everytime he has a chance to win.

I don't recall the tournament, but here's what happened. Woody had maybe a 10 ft putt to birdie a par 5 and made a poor stroke. He started moving to the hole almost as soon as he hit it, and the ball ended up on the other side of the hole. He leaned over and went to tap the ball in, in disgust, but as sometimes happens the putter sort of caught on the grass and the ball didn't move. In a second movement, he then "completed" the stroke. One commentator immediately called it as a whiff, the other wasn't so sure until they showed the replay. It was as clear as anything. They sent Feherty out on course to ask him what he made on that hole, and Woody said "5" which he also signed for. He made a 6 and should have been disqualified.

I can't comment because I didn't see it, but that is not cool if he did that. I had a pretty good respect for him until hearing about that. He always seemed very down to earth and very real to me. Anyone else see the incident he is referring to?

I'll have to give him the benefit of the doubt. Looked like he grounded the club and then hit it in. I didn't see a whiff.....quality was not HD though.

We discussed this when it happened. Bring up that old thread if you'd like, or please, let's keep this one on the (semi-) current events.

It seems that he did 'choke' a little under the pressure. His approach shot with his rescue shot was just bad luck and can happen in the thick rough. Its just another PGA Tour event and he'll be back for another go soon.

    • “Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.”   Yeah, it sounds like your course at least considers golfers who are playing, i.e., if the “early” closing on Sunday is at 4 or 5, not many still trying to squeeze in a round would be disadvantaged. And then reopening the range at 11:30 on Monday, when the course itself doesn’t reopen until noon, likewise shows consideration.   Agreed, closing the range on Monday or Tuesday morning (especially with a posted reopening time) makes way more sense (to me anyway) than closing at 3 on Sunday.
    • Finally got a birdie on the index 1 on my home course, its my first ever and it came because of a mishit 9 iron, it's a 440 yard par 4 with a narrow dogleg at about the 220 yard from the tee mark. I had a good drive and left myself 150 yards out but I fatted a 9 iron about 90 yards. I hit a 56 degree wedge perfectly from 60 yards and it took two hops and fell straight in for my first ever hole out from any further than a nGIR distance. Delighted with the shot in what was a poor round
    • I'm getting a little leery of these pros where it looks like they downed three bottles of 5 hour energy before the record button is tapped.
    • I didn’t watch the video, but the thumbnail screenshot has him in position to hit a big block with that right elbow stuck behind him.
    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.
