No, I haven't won a major. And, I'm not exactly angry. But, it is frustrating watching a guy cry about bad luck when he just screwed the pooch.

Sergio does get bad breaks though. Like on 18 today, all his ball needs is about two more yards and he's putting for birdie, and the pressure is REALLY on harrington. instead it catches the side lip of the bunker and goes in. i do agree though that some of it his fault obviously. you have to make that putt on 17. you also can't put it in the water on 16. but i mean, he's had some real tough breaks over his entire career. i don't think he's a crybaby most of the times as a matter of fact i agree with him a lot. cut the guy a ****ing break.

Actually he did say that Harrington played better than him and deserved it. Sergio played great but someone else played better and there's not much more to it.

You fail.

And what about my predictions before the tournament?

1. Tiger Woods will not win.
I could take that prediction to the bank, and be escorted by security for loitering.
2. At least two players will shoot a round in the 80s on Thursday and not come back for Friday.
Kenny Perry withdrew after scratching his cornea while putting in his contact lenses and subsequently shooting a 79 on Thursday. No one else quit before finishing two rounds.
3. John Daly will not be one of the players who withdraw.
Long John had a respectable showing of 74-75, but was just outside the cutline.
4. The 36-hole leader will fall out of contention during the weekend with two rounds over 75.
J.B. Holmes was the leader on Friday, and play was suspended before his round could begin on Saturday. His 36-hole line on Sunday was 70-81, an average round of 75.5.
5. The 36-hole leader will hail from the Southern Hemisphere.
Wrong, unless the Mason-Dixon line replaces the equator.
6. For all of the hullabaloo about Kenny Perry and Rocco Mediate coming into this tournament, neither will finish in the top 25.
Perry withdrew, and Mediate finished next to last in the field.
7. An Asian player will finish in the top 10. (By "Asian," I mean a player representing an Asian country. In other words, Vijay Singh and Anthony Kim don't count.)
Make it two: Charlie Wi of South Korea and Jeev Milkha Singh of India, both tied for ninth.
8. Speaking of Anthony Kim, he will not be a factor during most of the weekend, but will still sneak into a top-15 finish.
The wheels thoroughly came off of Kim's wagon after his even-par score on Thursday. 70-75-74-77=296, T55.
9. Phil Mickelson will play in one of the final three groups on Sunday.
Not quite: Phil was four groups from the last for his final round, but did place tied for seventh.
10. The winning player will shoot a round of 68 or better on Sunday.
Harrington's final round score: 66.
11. The winning score will be 276, 4 under par.
One stroke off. 277, 4 under.
12. The winning player will be under 30 years of age.
Nope: Harrington's 36.
13. The winning player will not be European.
Wrong again: Irish.
14. A club pro will finish the tournament inside the top 40.
Sadly, Frank Esposito Jr. posted a 78 on Friday to miss the cut by a stroke. No club pros saw the weekend.

    • Shot 76 last Thursday, but had a bogey on the par 5 12th.  Still don't have one this year, and running out of season...
    • I remember thinking something similar…
    • You must have an incredible hand eye coordination
    • and  While most par 4's I play are not this long, many I play do offer the same types penalties.  I have to agree with @iacas and go for the green knowing that I "may" have to play out a third from a bunker or rough.   For example, today on #11 at the course I was playing I had to decide similarly how to play it.  The hole is guarded on both sides at the front by bunkers and several knobs in the back.  I chose to go 3h instead of laying up as I am reasonably comfortable with where the ball goes and if it doesn't go well, I am okay hitting from green side bunkers.  Risk vs reward - where is the most to be gained?   For me, the hole did not play out as I planned as the 2nd was in heavy rough and the hybrid landed about 40yds short.  PW onto the green for a 2-putt bogie.  Would I play it that way again, why yes.  
    • Day 86 (21 Sep 21) - Played 18 today.  Some of the most consistent ball striking across the board - from irons to woods to driver.  Worked on keeping my pre-shot routine consistent (even adopted it for my chips/pitches in the yard), to do the same thing on every shot of every hole.  Also spent a couple of $ for a small bucket (22) of range balls before getting started.  Again - not rifling through in 2 minutes but rather about 20 minutes of warm-up work.  Really like doing that as I get a feel for the shot shape that is happening that day.  Also it inspires confidence in how the ball should fly.
