I hear Anthony Kim got disqualified for signing and incorrect scorecard

Yup. He was way off the cutline anyway. http://progolftalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/23/anthony-kim-dqd-for-signing-an-incorrect-scorecard/

I would also like to see JD win, But we all know how his game is.

Sorry to see Chad Campbell fold so quickly on Saturday.

Bo Van Pelt would jump 28 spots in the FedEx Cup Standings, to 12th place, if he were to win tomorrow.

Rickie Fowler just can't put 4 solid rounds together. He played his way out of it today.

I'll stick with my prediction of Geoff Ogilvy winning.

Yeah, I took a break from watching the tournament when Campbell was -5, and then I came back just in time to see him bogey number 15. Did he four-putt that hole? I wasn't paying attention.

Yes I believe he did 4 putt the last hole.

Anyone see Anthony Kim out there? Completely blew up, shot an 81 I believe and got DQ'd for putting in a wrong score.



AK got WD'd for signing an incorrect score card.

It's a testament to the tournament's pedigree and RBC's involvement that the field is as good as it is this week.

Yep, the chartered flight from the Open Championship to Vancouver certainly helps

Van Pelt and Hadwin both bogeyed hole 1. Should make for a very close finish since quite a few guys are in contention.

    • I use Google Earth program, so I got more options than searching google through the browser. I thought there use to be a way to switch images, but they might have gotten rid of that in the browser form of google maps. 
    • There is a product that most drug stores carry that essentially looks like a tiny stick of deodorant that is meant to prevent blisters on your feet.  Might want to give that a try until you break them in.  
    • I have only broken 90 a few times, just once since last September. Finally had a breakthrough round this weekend. I followed a 105 at a tougher desert course (70.7/137) with an 83 at an easier course (67.9/112). This year I've been working on the Impact Zone five dynamics 1. The Flat Left Wrist at Impact 2. The Forward Swing Bottom 3. Loading the Club on the Backswing 4. Lagging the Load Through Impact 5. Swinging the Club Along a Straight Plane Line Through the Impact Zone I've really been struggling with lagging the club. I've stuck with it and am finally seeing some progress, old early release habits have been hard for me to break. I started tracking my shots over 100 yards, under 100 yards, putts and penalties to see where to focus my practice time. The targets listed below for each category actually target breaking 80, but I feel like this has given me a good guide of where to focus my practice.  Over 100 yards - 34 (Averaging 38) Under 100 yards - 16 (Averaging 25) Putts - 30 (Averaging 34) Penalties - 0 (Averaging 3) It became clear that focusing under 100 yards should yield the most benefit. I do realize that poor approach shots from over 100 yards are also contributing to pushing that number up. I started with just 3/4 to full AW until I felt consistent. Then each club I felt consistent with, I'd go to the next. I've been focused on AW-8i and this week will work on 7i. Recently I spent one full range session getting driver dialed in a reliable again. I have been dedicating some time each week to practice: 80% of my range time on wedges through 8i. 20% of range time developing a reliable driver swing. Working to make iron and driver swings feel more similar than different 20 yard chipping in the backyard. Spending time on the putting green, putting to coasters, and putting on a flat steel ruler. My 83 was composed of 31 swings over 100 yards, 23 under 100 yards, 29 putts, and 0 penalties. This round I limited my clubs to Driver and 5i-LW leaving my 3h and 4i that can get me into trouble in the bag. Also, I am not a long hitter, only 2 drives beyond 240. Only 3 GIR, so chipping and putting were pretty strong. My 105 was 40 over 100, 29 under 100, 27 putts and 9 penalties. My 3h and 4i resulted in a few of those penalties.
    • Correct, I haven't had the chance to play that one yet.
