really? i'm not sure i can agree with that. yeah, you've got some old guys who could benefit from winning a half recognized event that doesn't get you into any majors or wgc's. on the other hand you'v

Tiger's old swing wins at Tiger's old favorite stomping ground with Tiger's old caddy.

anyway else get annoyed with the constant barrage of useless "quips" from the crowd? the dudes constantly screaming "get in the hole" are just morons and have the slight twang of accent that ma

It's not a good sign for the USA brigade in Atlanta, since Congressional, Firestone, and Atlanta Athletic Club are three very similar courses.

Strangely enough, there were plenty of American flags on the leaderboard at Royal St. George's. Go figure.



So unpredictable.  I actually wasn't that surprised with Zach Johnson and David Toms doing ok.  Luke Donald too.  They both hit the ball straight and putt well.  That course was SOOO narrow.  The big hitters were all playing from under trees the entire time.   That course actually reminds me a lot of colonial in Fort Worth.

I can't remeber the last time I saw a tournament from Atlanta Athletic Club, but I'm guessing with the 1920's on the logo it's going to be tight fairways, no elevated greens, and side by side holes like Colonial or Firestone.  Is that right?

AAC's home used to be East Lake, where the Tour Championship will be held next month. Robert Trent Jones designed the club's two new courses overlooking the Chattahoochee River in the late 1960s. It's closest contemporary is likely Hazeltine in Minnesota, which hosted the PGA two years ago, was built by Jones around the same time, and shares its background of an urban club relocating to a suburban site better suited to hosting major tournaments.

There are elevation changes, but mostly because of a gentle slope toward the river. The fairways are narrow, with landing zones pinched by bunkers and/or pine trees. The signature holes are 15, a long par 3 with a pond guarding the right side (where David Toms made a hole-in-one at the PGA decade ago), and 18, a par 5 for the members which will play as a long par 4 with an approach over water (where Toms laid up, pitched, and putted for par to secure victory).

    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
    • I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left.  I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait).    I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 wood...  Thoughts?    Yes I’m down to a 1.5 handicap, and shouldn’t really need equipment help... but I’m an adult and don’t know everything.
    • Similar to last  year I am looking to break 90 and then eventually 85 this year. My previous round was a 92 and I am improving.
