Sony Open

15 posts in this topic

Fairly Decent field for the Sony Open this year. Sucks that its in Hawaii in terms of watching it for me as its ridiculously late at night but imma be watching anyways.

Imma stick with my guy and hope that AK can build on the ok-ish start he made to the year at Kapalua and get it done here (i say ok-ish rather than decent, he had 2 good rounds and 2 average ones)

Judging from the weather forecast, they might have trouble getting the tournament in.  Calling for rain every day through the weekend.

Damnit!  I was really looking forward to killing time at work today following the scores.  I'm doing fantasy golf for the first time ever and this is our first week.  My starting squad of Furyk, Steve Marino, Jerry Kelly, Charlie Wi, Kevin Na, and Kevin Chappell are ready to kill it!

Tough weather here. It's funny though coming from NY. They call puddles floods here. You should not be golfing today because you'll wreck the course but usually it doesn't rain on that side of the island EVER. It rains in the mountains almost every day but very rare Hawaii Kai gets rain like this. It's a pretty standard rain most mainland people (besides AZ and texas) would be familiar with. Here theyre treating it like the end of the world. It stopped at like 9 and drizzled some since then but I walked to lunch. I'm about 5 miles from Waialae.

Appleby interview , he is gaming the 2 ball putter he bought in the pro shop last week after his "59" putter went missing. He said it was good enuff to shoot 8 birdies with last week, good enuff to give him the lead today. Who needs a limited edition custom built tour putter ? Apparently not steve. LOL That is pretty ballzy to leave your fav stick out of the bag and go with a off the shelf setup and come out on day one in the lead.

He hasn't kept things going today, and that happened last week as well.  If he can find some consistency, he will be tough to beat.  That's definitely an "if" though.

Charles Howell III started his season with a 68.  I still haven't figured out what he loves about this course, but he is almost a guaranteed top-five finish at Sony.  I'm hoping he keeps it up and gets another high finish this year as well.  He is off to a solid start.  Another name that keeps sticking out is Matt Kuchar.  He is turning into Mr. Consistency on the PGA Tour.

In a thread about slow play on the Tour a month or so ago, I wondered how well players would do if the U.S. Open still had a 36-hole final day. We're going to see how today.

There is a 36-hole final in the Sony, and each group has 4:30 between 3rd-round and 4th-round tee times. http://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/r006/tee-times.html

Neither Ben Crane nor Sean O'Hair are in the field, so this might work out. Rory Sabbatini must be in hog heaven.

Like in the old Open, the order of play in the 4th round is based on 2nd-round scores. We could well have the winner come from a group that finishes an hour ahead of everybody else. Back in the day, "leader in the clubhouse" actually meant something. It could today, too.

This should be fun.

Anybody see that shot by Steve Marino where he was standing in a bunker, hit a 3 wood like a baseball swing and got on the green in 2 on a par 5. That was a hell of a shot.

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
