I'm actually going to get up at 3 every morning to watch. I'd like to see Tiger win just to prove he has still got it. Other than him I'd like to see players like Rory Mcilroy, Dustin Johnson get up. I had a punt on Francesco Molinari to make top 25 at $4.00. Seems like a good bet to me

i do the same thing for the british open. Die hard!!!

There are a lot of "Sunday" hole locations being used today. I bet the pins will be more accessible tomorrow, and we'll see more birdies.

What are "Sunday hole locations"?

I know the course is set up pretty tough, but I've been pretty underwhelmed with the Golf today.We haven't seen all that many great shots.I'm sure the players are just getting used to tournament conditions out there and it'll improve.. but yeah, today was a bit of a dud in my opinion.

It's the greens, I believe. Not that many people putting well. Lots of short missed putts today.

I think Tiger can get a little carried away with the missed putts. Oh boy, poor me, I missed another one, see?

A freak show because he gets mad at himself? He hates golf? That's pretty subjective and definitely an exaggeration. You can find a reason to hate anybody. Just because somebody doesn't act as you want them to act doesn't mean how they act is evil or "wrong." I've seen plenty of people get just as upset or look astonished when a ball doesn't act the way they want it or expect it to.

Interesting first day - and one that has left me with a quiet smile, as I have a fiver each way on Casey and Poulter - both reasonably long, accurate and good putters. Good at keeping their heads calm, too, these days...

(Have to confess - less happy about the fivers on Westwood and Harrington, atm, and positively distraught about the McIlroy punt!)

Tricky ones. Tucked pins. Sucker pins.

I like tiger but will have to agree with you 100%...

In the past, Tiger would overcome such challenges. Right now, he's lost some of his luster and is in desperate need of finding his mojo again!

Of course Tiger is pissed off, he's the best golfer in the world and he's playing bad golf ( in his standards )....so what's the big deal?

We all get pissed off at the game sometimes, and we are nowhere near his skill level, so he has more reason to be annoyed at his game.

The fact is, the greens weren't in great condition, but he did also mis-read them.....I witnessed the bumpy greens he did too.

The way Tiger is hitting his irons yesterday, I wouldn't be surprised to see him in contention after today's round.

I still think he is the man to beat.

What do we think the cut line is going to be at? I've got Rhys Davies in a pool and he's been looking good so far today, hoping he can get to +4 with another birdie and sneak into the top 60. Thinking scores in the afternoon will be a little higher, so my guess is +5.

    • I said 4-6, which is round dependent for sure. If my timing is on I can strike a lot of very solid feeling shots, but the clubs I use could be masking those off center hits with the forgiveness built into them. I can also mishit pretty horribly those same rounds. If I'm having a really bad round I'd probably struggle to hit 1-3, but I don't know that I go a full round without hitting at least one flush shot. Of course, I could be completely delusional too.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Really my second full individual round(a stroke play event), or 4th if you count scrambles, on the year.  I am actually hitting my driver and irons decently as far as path and face is concerned and for distance as well.  My driver play is going especially well considering the lack of play.  I am definitely struggling a bit with low point but not as much as I thought I would. Had some great shots out of bunkers as well. I can't seem to figure out my wedge distances as is fairly obvious from this round.  My new Glide 2.0 wedges are confusing me a bit on some controlled distance shots.  I kind of miss my Edel wedges for that.  My touch around the greens is just not in form right now as would be expected.  I had some three putts out there but these greens are some of the toughest multi tiered greens I have played on.  We played with a scratch guy out there who shot a 77.  If i catch one thin or toe it a bit the hand also is in a fair amount of pain yet.  I look forward to the continued healing in the hand as far as that goes.   If i can avoid injuring myself this winter I hope to play a lot more next season.  Hopefully I can get out to Erin Hills and Sand Valley.  If anyone would be interested in playing theses courses next year with me, let me know. I am a bit on the fence over if I should work on the swing and try and get rid of the Furyk/Moore like loop or if I should just own it as it seems to be giving me the best face/path relationship I have maybe ever had.  At the end of the day if I can shoot in the low 80's from time to time next season I think it should be a lot of fun to play again.  
    • I’m typically around 4-6 if not even a bit higher. My issues come when I miss I miss big and start bringing big and crooked numbers into play
    • I don't know that that is accurate, and it definitely depends on the state.  In Colorado and California, for example, medical marijuana is exactly the same as the recreational strains available in dispensaries.  The difference is the level of taxation.  I did find one article that stated that 14 states limit THC potency, but after researching state-by-state wasn't able to pin that down.  I don't disagree that it's possible, but will argue the efficacy of doing so.  But to your point - Florida is considering legislation to limit the potency to 10% THC because levels above that "can induce psychosis in some users" (anyone seen Reefer Madness? 😄) A fools errand - the pot our parents smoked was around 7%, with the high-end "sinsemilla" coming in at around 9.5%.  It still gets you high.  Admittedly, the strains produced these days are much stronger, with 18-20% being considered high potency, and 30% being the upper limit for flower.  Extracts from marijuana plants, like hash oil, generally come in between 50 - 80%. To tie it all back together so I'm less off topic - regardless of the THC level, marijuana impairs a person mentally more so today than it did 20 years ago.  Golf is proven to have a significant mental component, aligned closely with the physical aspects of the game.  Thus weed absolutely has a negative impact on ones golf performance - though it might make a shitty round more fun.
