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.

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.
    • The Costs of Selling Covid Fear. Covid vaccines are incredibly… | by James Surowiecki | Jul, 2021 | Elemental Covid vaccines are incredibly effective. The media’s overhyping of new research from the CDC is making people think otherwise. If you haven't already, get vaccinated.
    • Day 584 - August 3, 2021 Hit fifteen or twenty balls at Chautauqua between lessons. Wrists while I turn, 1/2 swing (or 3/4). Whatever it is, it's "less." Hit some good ones.
