Big week! who you on this week?

Im hoping that AK has been given a scare of only making it in as an alternate and has a big week this week (although i won't hold my breath).

Other than that im on Jason Day

Oh totally. All of the local news channels are going crazy. It's Clarke-mania! :-D

Got a pretty good laugh from this: Phil Mickelson Laughs Off 2nd-Place Finish, Blows Brains Out In Car | The Onion Sports Network

I'll miss every minute of the coverage this year unfortunately. Just a few preditions.

Winner - one of Goosen, Donald, Day, or Westwood.  If I had to bet, it'd be on Westwood.

AK - missed cut

Adam Scott - missed cut or top 3

Dustin Johnson - top 10

The American contingent: Stricker/Mahan/DJ/Watney

Dark horse: Ian Poulter

When the sun emerges above the English Channel next Sunday morning, it will appear to be shining the brightest over the British Isles, as Britons and Irishmen will constitute the majority of the names on the canary scoreboard hovering over Royal St. George's18th green. The newsstands will be filled with stories of the two Englishmen and the Ulsterman ranked 1-2-3 in the world, all in a position to win the world's oldest championship; of Justin Rose, who captured Britain's imagination as a 17-year-old amateur in 1998, but has competed without distinction at the Open until this moment; of Darren Clarke, a decade removed from contending for major titles, but showing signs of life after a period filled with injury and tragedy; of Martin Laird and Rhys Davies, young men with the dreams of Scotland and Wales resting on their shoulders; and of Simon Dyson, the last man into the field, making the most of his long-shot opportunity, and the last of eight players from the British Isles filling the first ten places on the leaderboard.

When the sun sets beyond the Kent horizon Sunday evening, though, none of these men will be carrying the Claret Jug.

Bubba Watson! I really want to see him win a major.

Other then him I will be rooting for Rory and Phil Mickelson.


EDIT: KJ Choi is another player I am really rooting for, I almost forgot him.

Bubba will miss the cut and blame the lack of Monty. It isn't a normal Open Championship without Monty.

Sorry, but after that fiasco he had across the pond and the revelation by others on his demeanor in general, I will NOT be rooting for him.

Haha fiasco... I can't believe how big of a deal people made out of that.

I like Rory for this one again. Think he's about to start a historic tear.

Sentimental South African pick: Goose. Eight top 10s in his 16 Opens. That's pretty solid.

Who I want to win: Luke or Lee. Get the damn monkey off one back at least.

Dark horse: Any American.

To further elaborate on my prediction for this championship, I believe the winner will be someone exempt from regional qualifying, from a country that has not yet produced an Open champion. That qualifier produces a range of 27 players:

Martin Kaymer

KJ Choi

Robert Karlsson

Francesco Molinari

Matteo Manassero

Kyung-Tae Kim

YE Yang

Edoardo Molinari

Peter Hanson

Anders Hansen

Ryo Ishikawa

Fredrik Jacobson

Hiroyuki Fujita

Yuta Ikeda

Nicolas Colsaerts

Camilo Villegas

Fredrik Andersson Hed

Thongchai Jaidee

Sang-Moon Bae

Seung-Yul Noh

Joost Luiten

Thorbjorn Oleson

Henrik Stenson

Tadahiro Takayama

Hiroo Kawai

Prayad Marksaeng

Lucas Bjerregaard (A)

I'm going with Peter Hanson, because I'm not sure I could correctly pronounce the others...

    • Going through the list, and happen to find Sand Valley (25th) and Lawsonia (23rd) 🙂 Best public golf courses 2021-22: GOLF's Top 100 Courses You Can Play For the first time our ranking of the best public-access courses ventured outside the United States into Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Enjoy!  
    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
    • I find, as an old geezer just a bit away from the edge of the mortality table, that lifting the lead heel and letting my lead knee point towards or even slightly behind the ball, gives me a bit more rotation and the act of replanting it improves my pressure shift to the lead foot. My handicap is slowing creeping downwards so it seems to be working for me or, at least, it FEELS like it's working...  😈
    • Yeah, for sure! 🙂I work in Technical Support for a living and deal with end users all day long so I understand the importance of caring for the user and the importance of sharing information in forums like this. They've dropped the ball quite a bit on this one in my eyes, but hopefully they can rebuild that trust back for those of us who are willing to stick through it with them.  I ended up buying Pro with the discount they gave me. Figured why not try it. It's version 3.0. They have a 30 day return policy and if it just ends up being crappy for whatever reason(s), I'll just return it and hope the app gets updated and stick with Live. Plus, I got a buddy who had Classic and I could give him my Live version if all things align how we want them to.
