I want Phil to win but the greens are crazy at Oakland so im clueless! Phil has bad speed control on the greens

I agree, Phil has good speed control on the greens, if he can keep his head together and keep everything going the right direction he'll certainly be in the mix, does he hold on to win.....no. I'd love to see it, but it won't happen.

Total $ Worth: FOR all SHAFTS: About $1000 (TOUR ISSUE) IRONS / WEDGES: About $2000 (some Rare/ Proto) Putter: About $500 (rare) For all 14 IOMIC GRIPS: About $280 Balls: About $45 per dozen. TOTAL: About $3825+

Can I just make an unsolicited and completely unrelated comment? I'm trying to figure out a way to say this without sounding like a complete a$$, but what's the point of the total $ worth on the end of your sig? So you have nice equipment....big deal. Again, nothing personal against you because frankly I don't know you and this is probably the first post I've read of your's, but hardly relevant.

and besides 14 Iomic grips are 180 not 280 :o I think hes just trying to impress everyone with his money.

I hope Anthony Kim wins or of course my favorite Bubba Watson. I just hope there are some good names atop the leaderboard come Sunday to make it a dramatic finish.

I notice how no one has mentioned K.J. Choi or Stewart Cink. While I'm not sure they will win, I would imagine both could fair decently well.

I also like how Goosen and Harrington are playing. Especially Goosen on the dirty greens of Oakland Hills.

My Fearless Predictions for the PGA Championship

Need to keep a scorecard for all of this....hahaha, good stuff and I agree with some of them. I particularly like #'s 4, 5, 8, and 14. My top 5 are: 1 - Padraig Harrington - how about back to back majors? 2 - Sergio - love his power game, but his putter... not so nice... 3 - Goosen - steady, but can he make some putts? 4 - Furyk - can he step it up on Sunday? 5 - Mickelson - try hitting some fairways, good lord? and a top 10 for Anthony Kim (he's fun to watch)

Watched the whole thing today:

Vijay's putting is still terrible & Started off terrible
Padraig/Goosen started off amazing
Heith Slocom had an amazing eagle today
I was suprised to See John Daly

Round 1 Update (or most of it, at least) 1. Tiger has incredibly yet to give up a single stroke to this golf course. At this rate, he'll pummel the record score in a major by 63 shots...What? He's not actually playing? Never mind. 2. Kenny Perry, 79, WD. One down, one to go. 3. Long John came in with 74, and he still has a good shot at the weekend. 4-5. Six Aussies, two Argentines, and an Afrikaner are within three shots of the Thursday lead. Three more South Africans are four back. One of them needs to put up a low score and choke. 6. Perry's withdrawn, Rocco's in a tie for 48th. 7. Jeev Milkha Singh (India) is the leader in the clubhouse; Charlie Wi (South Korea) is at even par. Let's hope they can keep it up. Unfortunately, the two players I had in mind when making this prediction (Choi and Imada) are a combined 18 over par. 8. AK scores a solid 70 on day one, tied for eighth, but a little too far in contention for my liking. 9. Phil's at even par, well on his way to a good tournament. 10-11. If it rains again during the weekend, the greens might soften up enough to allow low scores. If it stays dry, the scores are going to go up. 12-13. Meeting the criteria and within four of the lead: Romero, O'Hair, Kim, Moore, Baddeley, Thompson, Snedeker, Holmes, Mallinger, Trahan, Howell, Merrick. Those are some good players there. 14. Frank Esposito, Jr. is +1 after the first day.

go jeev mikha singh! my father was viceroy montbattten's pilot in india during ww2. as a young boy, instead of riding around on a bicycle, i would attach my bicycle to other kids bikes and get pulled around. from these and other signs i knew i was not of this hemisphere. when i asked my dad if he got a blessing from a holy man for me to be his son and take birth in the west, he said the only blessings he ever recieved were from the prostitutes and so i am the incarnation of the blessings of the prostitutes of india and so this is why i am rooting for jeev mikha singh.

    • Day 81 (16 Sep 21) - Played 18 today but did something totally different that made for some great course management strategizing.  ON all the "odd" numbered holes (1, 3, 5....15, 17), I limited myself to pretty much the 3w off the tee and only odd numbered hybrid (3h) and irons (5-7-9).  Likewise ON all the "even" numbered holes (2, 4, 6....16, 18), I limited myself pretty much to the driver off the tee and only the even numbered hybrid (4h) and irons (6 - 8 - PW (as this used to be the 10i in the old days)).  Where wedge play was required, I only had the 52 and 58 wedges in the bag, so I was limited there.   The fun of this was that I had to think about how to best play the hole given what clubs were "available" for that hole.  I have done only irons/hybrid before and have limited myself to only say the "odd" irons as well.  I can say I believe this round encouraged some of the best ball striking I have ever done and encouraged great course management for each hole.  Can say this is a must do again exercise!  
    • @dennyjonesand I have a 1:40pm Tee Time as Whispering Woods on Friday Oct. 8th.  We have room for 2 more in our foursome, these will be 1st come 1st serve.  Just post to this thread and I will see them.  They did have a 1:50 available if we need another tee time. Also, We are staying at the Avalon in Erie, across the street from Golf Evolution and got a room, double occupancy, for $149 per night.  If any need a room give them a call and mention Golf Evolution, that did it for us.   We are still open for a round on Saturday afternoon.  @iacasmention Little Mountain which is closer to Cleveland (@ 1 hr. 15 minute drive from Erie).  I'd do that but think closer to Erie would be better since we have the lessons until 1pm.  We have the option to stay another night in Erie if that helps accommodate a round of golf on Saturday closer to Erie.     Also, we are up for dinner/drinks on Friday night for any of you that are in town.
    • For me a rock solid 87 (42/45, 6/14 on fairways hit, 4/18 GIR with another 4 nGIR) today that could have easily been a low 80's score if not for the blow-up on 4 (got to thinking too much) and a LB penalty on 18 (danged pampas grass).   Playing from the whites at River Bend (just over 6,100 yds 69.1/122 rating), started the round bogie, par, par and then the approach on 4 was bounced on and then rolled off the back of the green by about 3 yards.  They keep it cut tall there, so it was pitch out time.  Choked on the 58 not once but twice for hear of flying the green.  Came away with a three over 7 on what should have been a par or bogie at worst hole.  Kept the cool and finished the side at +6 or out in 42.  The back was all about bouncing between bogie and par.  Then on 17 there was a bogie so I am thinking I am on track for another really good round for me.  18 had a great tee shot that left me a decent 6i for the approach.  I pushed it just enough to lose the ball in the pampas grass that borders the green and the backside of 9.  I hit a provisional as I have never found my ball once it goes in that stuff.  The end result was another triple bogie 7 on the hole to finish +10 for a 45 (par is 35 on the back).  I did do something different today - on the "odd" numbered holes (1, 3, 5...15, 17), I could only use the "odd" numbered irons and hybrid on that hole.  The same with the even numbered holes, using the even numbered irons and hybrid.  Made for some interesting shot choices and planning - some holes were forced layups while others played nicely.  Also I tried to balance tee shots between the driver and the 3w for more diversification.  Can honestly say I hit every club in the bag, some in places I would have not thought of using them before.  It was the most challenging and fun round I've played....
    • Let me know how you get on over your next few rounds with your scores. I reckon forget trying to bomb the exact yardage and just enjoy the moment.    Regards Paul
