Great emotional win for David Toms. I'm disappointed Charlie couldn't pull it out, but hopefully he contends again soon.

Exciting finish, shame that Appleby fell apart, but that's golf.  Glad to see Toms bounce back after last week AND after the disheartening 3rd round.  He's got some grit.

Nice to see Toms get some redemption.  Watched AK and Henrik Stenson for 13 holes on Saturday.  Stenson's ball flight is a thing of beauty.  He gets really in front of the ball and hits really down on it.  The ball just takes off with a very audible shreaking whizzz, flighs high and far with a baby 3 yard fade at the end.  Stenson, with his 3 wood, was consistently outdriving AKs driver.   Stenson is freakishly good at striking a golf ball, if he could putt well, he'd be in contention all the time.  He only uses a golf tee when hitting driver--the 3 woods off the tee box--he hits them off the deck.

Stenson moves further forward (with his hips) in his backswing than almost anybody else.

I think that is the most notable thing about many of the younger players today. They start forward during the backswing--it is very noticeable with many of them.

    • It seems it would be difficult to get the ball to stop on the green. Bump and run can be judged. But let’s say a 150-170yd…it’d be hard to hurl the ball far enough to get there but with a high enough trajectory to stay on the green. Seems like every shot outside 100yds would have to be a bump and run.
    • For those who have tried golf a few times and find it too frustrating(like my wife), I can see where this might be fun for some. Consider me open minded. But that is coming from a snow boarder and someone who also enjoys disc golf as well.  🙂
    • They probably have to pay the same rates so it won’t hurt the course in that aspect.
    • All evidence wold indicate that Tiger has put it in many, many more holes than Jack.   But seriously, Tiger was much better at scrambling and making stunning recovery shots than Jack. But Jack didn't seem to find trouble as often as Tiger.
    • They say it’s been allowed on some courses. I just can’t imagine too many letting these guys crowd the tee times. Maybe a course that’s hurting for business? And I assume you charge the same green fee rate? Dress codes? Yeah….I dunno….not too big on this one.
