Who will win? Ben Crane. Not sure why. Is Tiger playing? :-)

I'll go out on a limb, but not too far..  I'll go with a new winner this week, someone that hasn't won yet in 2011.. Ya'll pick from there.. LOL  I'll go with Trevor I.

Going on Saturday with Senorchipotle.  Really enjoy Colonial, with the tee boxes close to the previous green, very easy to have multiple sight views, and makes for easy walking.  I think Jason Duffner, Brian Gay, and Brian Davis will do well.

I'll be there on Saturday too, and I have to agree about how easy it is to watch and navigate the course. As for winner I'm going with the obvious, Jason Day. He's been having a great season so far and plus home course advantage right? It'll definitely be a great tournament to say the least.

Yep, Jason Day should do well--he's playing great.  Enjoy the tourney (bring an umbrella--early forecast is for 40% chance scattered showers on Saturday)

AK playing well. I really want him to hold it together for 4 days. He is a great player to watch.

So, he is my pick.

84% FIR

100% GIR

-5 through 7

1.286 putts per green

Phenomenal playing.

Survived the big storm, and really enjoyed friday. Toms hit some great irons and had a second straight 62. Sure par is 70 but still that is amazing.

Wi has played great. The stack & tilt swing is getting good exposure with his great shot making. My only additional observation is it sure looked to me like he has shifted to a slightly modified s&t; swing. His right leg is more flexed throughout the swing and he looks bit more traditional than the swings he has on the tv ads for s&t.; He looked very centered and balanced but not as pure s&t; as before. He hits very clean irons and I hope he has a great finish. One other thing is Angel Cabera absolutely kills the ball. On hole 3 where length is superimportant, he hit a. 3wood further than most of the big bitters hit driver (yesterday). He is strong.

Sergio’s time-out of golf hasn’t really done much for him.

He can still be amazing from tee to green, but his putting?


He needs to sort it out quickly as time is passing him by.

Charlie's always done a bit of this. You raise a good point. S&T; is not about making everyone "look" a certain way. If Charlie was having trouble getting enough turn - or he wanted to hit the ball farther - he might turn his hips more. As it is, for him, he turns his hips "enough" and allows his hips to work in the proper geometry - the right hip raises, the left knee increases flex, and the hips slant contribute to the inclination to the ground.

Charlie definitely does not "maintain the (same) flex" in his right knee, though, and that's the main point... the right knee will decrease flex throughout the backswing to allow the right hip to raise, the shoulders to turn fully, and the hips to rotate.

I think Toms will come back something fierce today. Looking forward to a good final round, though.

That's all I meant with my comments. He is still stacked and the right leg does straighten but I was used to seeing his swing on the tv commercial and in real life under the gun of competition it somehow looked different. It would be nice if toms makes a good run today.

There's a good example of how you bounce the club to relieve tension. He's been putting so well, can't start running the putts long now. 3 birdies and 2 bogies, I'm optimistic, but he must avoid the bogies.

    • You make it sound like 15 minutes and 25 tries is a lot. Lots of people spend hours on some bosses, myself included.
    • I’m nearsighted, about -3.25 diopters.  For daily work, I use progressive lenses.  For golf, I have single vision (no reading/progressive) sunglasses, as you do. a) Yes, I lift my sunglasses as needed to record scores, adjust pin/putting location, etc. I’ve never really thought of it as a problem, but I can see how it might be for some. b) For low light, I have a very inexpensive set of single vision regular glasses that I ordered online ($50 or so because I splurged and upgraded the lenses). I keep them in my golf bag all the time.  At dusk, I switch from my nice sunglasses to my cheapo clear glasses. From time to time I consider contacts (I’ve worn them in the past), but then I’d probably have to use a set of readers to deal with (a).
    • This is how the selections have been picked for The Masters winner. I do see a slight problem in that two people picked JS at -14 . From what @iacas mentioned, if I am not mistaken, there can only be one selection for a particular golfer with reference to their final score? I noticed Darkfrog selected JS first at -14. Check out all the selections below:   Colins69                Tony Finau -11 phillyk                    Patrick Canlay -11 ncates00               Patrick Cantlay -13 nevets88               Rory McIlroy -12 pganapathy            Rory McIlroy -17 Darkfrog               Jordan Spieth -14 onthehunt526       Jordan Spieth -14 woodzie264          Dustin Johnson -14 RickK                     Dustin Johnson -17 iSank                      Dustin Johnson -18 DewSweeper09    Justin Thomas -9 Birdieputt              Justin Thomas -13 Billy Z                    Justin Thomas -14 Zippo                     Bryson DeChambeau -11 Hardspoon            Bryson DeChambeau -15 False hopes          Lee Westwood -11 Yukari                    Collin Morikawa -14 Bucki1968             Paul Casey -10  
    • Ahh okay. Interesting you're feeling that already. I definitely don't want to cause a wrist injury here by suggesting you feel it more lol. It's not like egregiously bad at all obviously. It's not quite Lee Westwood, but you're not like super super far off from that.  Anyway, obviously disregard whatever I say if the instructor disagrees. 
    • I do palmar flexion at the top, but it is worth a look, thanks. I’ll ask my instructor.
