Yeah, everyone's over it. Even Tiger.

There are quite a lot of big names right at the bottom of the leaderboard after the first day at Bay Hill. Must have been tough out there.

I hope to see a peek of Graeme McDowell today if for anything just to see how much effort he'll put into merely trying to make the cut.  Allenby shot a 79 on Day 1 but put in a nice effort today (69) tho that may not be enough.

if tiger can have another day like friday, he will def be in contention for a win. I would say he needs -5 and will be within 3-4 shots of the lead. then on sunday, he will be going for every green no matter what.

I know! commentators even said that they would be paired up. I was kinda excited cause we hardly get to see garcia play. oh well.

Even if that happens, he would need help like he got from Sean O'Hair in '09.

IMO, Tiger needs to post at least a 65 today to have any chance

Tiger's out of it.

3-4 players getting some shots lead on the followers. Someone in the top two pairings tomorrow will win it.

Got the chance to go to Bay Hill on Thursday... what a freaking beautiful course, the 18th is a great hole. My prediction is BUBBA will wield the sword.  With Levin imploding today and Tiger out of the question with his spotty consistency, I think it clears a path for Bubba to make a strong run.  Steve Marino started playing like a champ and I do want to see Ricky win given his strong relationship with Arnie (and to get that first win..) BTW side note.. Gary Woodland could possibly be one of the longest iron players I've ever seen, absolute crazy. Lets hope this prediction is better than my POS bracket.

Isn't it though? I went yesterday and texted my wife that for my birthday, I want a round on that course! I got to see both Bubba & Tiger eagle #6 but Tiger was way too inconsistant. I'd really like to see Bubba take it.

    • Now everyone with the "I'm waiting for full FDA approval" excuse can put up or shut up, or move the goalposts again.
    • Day 4: Yesterday's post didn't go through, guess I didn't hit submit after typing it out  Started with full swing priority piece, but everything was out of sorts. Tomorrow I'll practice earlier in the day with enough light to set up LVP camera. Switched to hitting pitch shots with 7-iron until I was making solid contact and the ball was starting on target. Then did some COVID-19 day 6/7 drills with LW.
    • Not sure what height has to do with age but ok.  I only asked based on what he said he weighed and how far he hits his drives. That said, you're absolutely right, age is a factor in training but it's really dependent on what you're doing and your body.  I'm fortunate in that although I'm climbing in age more rapidly than I'd like to think about, training wise, I'm not at all in a position where I have to make substantive changes. I see many drives much further than your current average given your height and weight if you keep up with it.  I've gained a few pounds of muscle since I started playing golf a few years ago and have def seen my distances increase.
    • So, I'm reviving this thread b/c I wanted to keep a record of how my 2021 golf season is going.  First, working with @iacashas me so much more confident about my game than I ever have been.  The scores may not show it but after discussing it with Erik and some reflection, I realize at least yesterday that a lot of that has to do with not really focusing when I punch out and also that I don't practice the short game shots that I face in a round, not that I practice short game much at all.  Overall, feeling better about my putting and the swing changes I've made has me pumping my driver out there further more consistently.  I literally never worry about using that club.  Still have lots of work to do with my irons which I feel is also holding me back from putting up better scores, but I feel some range time will help me groove that more. This year I didn't play my first round until May and typically I get in 40 or so rounds with many more coming in the later months (ya know, when it gets cold because I'm smart like that).  My next round will be my 14th which will likely not come until next week.    My unofficial HC is 24.8 and this year I haven't shot under my target score which I calculate based on my unofficial HC and the course rating and slope rating.  I suppose this isn't too surprising as including all my rounds from last year, I've played 47 times and have only shot under my target score 3 times.  I've only shot under 100 twice this year so that's the first goal, get under 100 more consistently which should happen, if I ever learn to stop being a knucklehead out there.     
    • Sure.  5'8 or 5'9, depending who you ask (I haven't measured by myself in over a decade, and I get one of those two answers every time someone else does).
