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

Ishikawa

He may not win probable not but he's in the last pairing, wow! To be thinking, he missed the cut last week at a pretty average Japan Tour event. So exciting, everyone in Japan talk about it.

Also KT Kim is -6 in T12, very good too!

If Ryo wins, he will be the youngest winner on the PGA Tour since John McDermott in 1911.

Wow, does that count as PGA Tour though because tour did not exist then, technical aly?

Also, he would be only 4th Japan player to win on PGA Tour. (Imada, Maruyama, Aoki).

I think Ishikawa has a decent chance or at least as good as anyone else with the way he is playing.

I wish Phil could step it up a bit..  However,  Firestone's rough and tree line fairways will handcuff Phil something awful..  That is one thing about Firestone South, you need to hit it long and straight.. and straight some more.. It's actually funny at times watching the PGA set up the course when they come to town.. Firestone IF set up to US Open standards, would make it almost impossible for anyone to win with a sub par total.. I personally would LOVE to see a 5 day event using both North and South courses :)

The pro's hate the North course.. It plays harder then the South does.. LOL

It wouldn't count in a professional league with teams, but the PGA Tour seems to have no problem going back and changing history (e.g. what is a major or an official win).

Fowler is looking really good, if he can start getting some of these putts to drop he might be able to get up there with the leaders.  He just barely missed 3 birdie putts in a row.

Never in my life have I seen such poor coverage of a #1 golfer that is in the top 5. I know Luke Donald isn't exactly Tiger but they should at least show him more than once every 3 or so holes.

If he doesn't win soon he'll have to give up the Sunday orange thing. It's getting weird.

Luke is playing? Never would have known. I haven't seen any KT Kim, even through he's tied with McIlroy, who I've seen a lot of.

    • Played my first round away from my home course yesterday and snuck into two birdies on holes 4 (par-3) and 10 (par-4). 🙂  Started composite stats now. 
    • @Billy Z is going to lose his 💩 when he sees this. 😉
    • Wrapped up another great trip to Erie, which means as usual I have a lot of homework to do. There's a lot of stuff (unsurprisingly) that @iacas has told me in the past that I'm still struggling with, like needing to be more calm and focused before every shot. Bear in mind if you do read this that these are my feels. Putting Erik checked my aim fairly early on. I do have an Edel putter, so the aim wasn't too bad. It was simply twisted slightly open at address. We also moved the ball back about half a ball and shifted my posture a little upright to get my eyes inside the ball. We did make a mechanical change to my stroke, as I swung the putter with my chest, essentially rotating my trunk around. Erik showed me how to swing the putter by keeping my sternum relatively still and letting my arms swing more around my body. The biggest change we implemented is putting with a purpose. As in, I wasn't really doing it. There were times on the course where my distance control was great and others when it was absolutely atrocious, with no real explanation. We figured out that I was basically spaced out and not really putting, just hitting the ball basically. We worked on some preshot stuff to feel the distance and for me to envision the hole as I make my stroke, to keep the target in focus the entire time. Short Game Mostly stuff I've already been taught. Softer arms in pitching, trust the pivot. I tend to use my arms too much and when I quiet them down, I don't allow myself to pivot fast enough because I'm worried I'll hit the ball too far so I end up hitting everything short. Trust the pivot. Chipping is less wrist hinge, butt of club stays pointing to my belly button. Need to be more calm before the shot. I also need to learn to use different clubs to vary trajectory. Full Swing I'll write this in a separate post. It's getting late and I don't want to do this section injustice by writing something up quickly.
