If Stenson really has found his way back from his high 70s to 80 scores then I think he will win it. I only saw the last couples of holes but his 275 yard shot to the 18th green that landed 2 yards from the flag was insane.

Kaymer recovered well today are a poor start. Dustin Johnson doing only very average also. Big mistake by Kaymer to try and change his swing earlier on this year.

Yeah, why did Kaymer change his swing? Can't understand why you would change your swing when you have  a winning concept... Any ideas?

Apparently, he wants to be able to hit a draw off the tee. We'll have to wait and see if it was a good idea.

Looking at his swing before and after, he's definitely trying to get more inside on the takeaway and downswing.

The younger Americans seem to be coming over to Europe more these days. Bubba Watson is playing the French Open next week, for example.

I'm done with Sergio. He treats me like a rag doll.

Then three putts to lose it all. What a shocker.

Good to see him contend again, though. And that finish gets him into the Open -- so a pretty good week nonetheless.

Very disappointed Sergio could not pull out the win. Great to see him playing well again. I just want to see him win a tournament relatively soon!

Maybe the Open Championship?!

I can dream, can't I?

    • I don't think we're at the point where all that stuff can really be integrated quite yet. Too many competing standards and stuff right now. Soon. Not yet.
    • Of the six military guys I asked about it, five felt it was exactly the kind of thing they fought to protect and had no problem with it. The sixth said he thought it was disrespectful but said so is killing people and blowing shit up and the military does that itself. Have you polled enough of the military to see whether it was seen as disrespectful by the majority?
    • Of course the outrage is after the fact.  As it is with most things.  Are you stating you would have to personally witness something as it happens to be outraged or disagree with it?   I don't believe it is something that can be "proved" either.  I don't think it needs to be.  If the majority of the military feels it is disrespectful, than I tend to agree with that.
    • My house is dumb as a brick.  And 2x4 posts.  And drywall.  And paint.
    • No. Liking the entirety of your country, your government, etc. is not a binary state. You don't even like everything about your wife. Or children. Or golf. @Gunther, never one to disappoint with that crap. More below… You never give people enough credit. Guess what? You can support a person's right to protest while completely disagreeing with whatever they're protesting. It isn't. But your constant attempts to pigeonhole do more to divide than they do to gain understanding, find common ground, and discuss things intelligently. I'll call it like I see it - you're intellectually lazy when it comes to anything political. That's why I think you pigeonhole everything into "liberal" and "correct" (in your opinion). And hey, I tend to vote Republican. We're probably more alike than you imagine, politically… except that I try to look at things separately, when I do take the time to consider it, while you seem to want to just pigeonhole and spout. Others have said it, but you can't "prove" that it's disrespectful. It's just your opinion. And anyone else's. At the risk of making a post that's not "on topic" enough that I'd moderate it if it weren't my own post (though mods are and always have been free to moderate my posts as they see fit)… my thoughts on the matter include: I don't think it's disrespectful to sit. I think you should probably have a reason to sit, because if you garner attention for sitting you'd better have an answer as to why, not just "I don't know, stuff sucks here right now." He seems to have had a reason, so okay. Sitting is no different, IMO, than burning a flag. Protesting in front of Capitol Hill. If a "regular person" sits, nobody will care. A few people might say "what a jerk" in their minds, but they're not going to care if he has an issue. They will if a celebrity sits, so he used the fame to get his point across. I'm not entirely sure what he was protesting, so I don't know if I agree or disagree with him. I know people who support gay marriage but who oppose welfare. Or the opposite. IMO, things are rarely so clearly divided along party lines. I know military people who think what he did was terrible, and others who think it was a great expression of the freedom their fighting and work has allowed for. As usual, since it's politics, I don't give it a whole ton of thought. But what little thoughts I've given it are right there.
