I agree. It's a bit too flashy for a 0 wins player.

You've seen lots of McIlroy? What coverage are you watching? I've seen him hit 1 shot all day (a lag putt on 13 just there).

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.

I think I've seen a bunch of his tap-ins. Maybe it was someone with a similar colored shirt through, I have the audio off.

It's bizarre to hear Adam Scott and Luke Donald being described as the old men on the leaderboard.

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.

Hard to think of Scott or Donald as "old" - but it is amazing to see what guys in their early 20's and even some in their teens, are able to do. Combination of skill and mental toughness - very impressive.

Why is this considered amazing? There are tons of sports where teenagers show the composure and skill of savvy veterans (tennis, hockey, gymnastics) and some where the body just isn't mature enough as a teenager (distance running, baseball). I'd say golf is somewhere in the middle.

Gymnastics, for sure. Many other sports, like hockey, you definitely get the phenoms like Crosby and Stamkos who can compete at the highest level at a very young age. What seems different about golf is that it seems this has become the norm rather than the exception.

Well, Tiger didn't quite get me the 65..........anyone see the post-round interview with SW?.....Fantastic win by Stevie Williams with Adam Scott walking beside him swinging the club.

Stevie, you the man (sarcasm intented)....

I don't really know why, but I wold be surprised if Rory won. I'll take Tiger, Fowler, and Jason Day to contend, with Hunter Mahan winning.

My predictions of Rory not winning and Fowler and Day contending were right, but I was way off-base with Tiger and Mahan.

Was right about Tiger, way wrong about Phil, and close with Rory.

1. The course from aerial view looks very challenging, but monotonous. A bunch of long, narrow holes, plenty of trees between the fairways with similar number of bunkers and bunker sizes. Little variety of vegetation and geological elements. 2. Very competitive tournament. The level and quantity of young talent is ridiculous. I don't see how anyone can dominate the tour with all these great golfers playing out of their minds. 3. Stevie Williams clearly has some deep, burning dislike of his former employer.

I am sorry but Stevie was an *sshole in the televised interview.  I agreed with what Nantz said about 13 majors and this is was "best week ever"?  Maybe Stevie's been watching too much vh1 in his spare time.  Yes, Stevie, we know you're pissed...

Somebody better tell Pretty Boy Scott that not only is his caddy more famous than he is, but has probably made more "prize money" looping for Tiger than Adam made in his 8 wins.

Ya think??

Wondering if that is one of the very few times a caddy has been interviewed following a win? Sorta made Steve look like an arsehole, but makes for good TV I guess.

Not sure why Steve got an interview in the first place. It was bizarre and unnecessary but I guess the media will do their best to fan the flames Hopefully the melodrama doesn't get to the point where it affects Scott's golf.

Awesome week from Scott. Hopefully he can convert his talent into some more wins this season. Felt bad for Day today. He just couldn't seem to get the putter going, he seemed really bummed after that poor birdie putt on 18. As a fan from down under it is great to see Aussies in contention so often this year.

Ryo impressed too. He was trying to make the play all the way to the end when he could have shut up shop. Cost him a stroke or two but I prefer players who take the game on.

    • I mentioned Radovich vs NFL - Radovich seeking compensation after having joined another league and was forever banned from the NFL in any form, even later in life trying to join as a coach or something. SC sides with Radovich The article I linked mentions the fairly recent NCAA vs Alston - on restricting college player compensation: "the NCAA is acting in violation Section 1 of the Sherman Act, which prohibits any “contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerce.”"   NCAA v. Alston: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning? In its unanimous 9-0 decision in NCAA v. Alston, the Supreme Court upheld a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that struck down NCAA caps on student-athlete academic... How about LA Colliseum vs NFL, when the raiders were blocked from moving to LA in the 80s due to a rule that required 3/4 vote of teams in the NFL. LA Colliseum wins saying rule was violating Sherman Anti Trust There are dozens more.   The common thing here to me is that, it doesn't matter if there is a "rule" even if it was agreed to if the rule is illegal.
    • You aren't saying anything unreasonable. For some reason this is a very emotionally charged topic and it brings out people who want things to be a certain way regardless of the law.  Five minutes on Google reading law blogs shows the players have at least pretty good anti-trust case.   The Supreme Court ruled against the NFL in the 1950s,  when they blacklisted players who played in a rival league.  The PGA Tour colluding with the European Tour, World Golf Rankings, the entities that organize majors and Ryder Cup and potentially going against their charter as a non-profit are all going to be brought up.  I am sure the PGA Tour has consulted with lawyers and will have counterpoints. A lot of it will probably depend on judges. I would guess the current administration would be more amenable to the player's suit than most as they are already pursuing companies over non-competes and collusion. You shouldn't even need Google for at least one example.  Trump and the USFL vs the NFL.  They won but weren't awarded damages. Otherwise you could Google and find this case as the first thing listed. Radovich v. National Football League :: 352 U.S. 445 (1957) :: Justia US Supreme Court Center Radovich v. National Football League  
    • What precedent? You keep saying this but you haven’t cited examples of where a rival league won a suit against a major league for anti-trust in the US. Name the sport, the leagues involved and cite the lawsuit. Right now your devils advocacy seems just like arguing for argument sake. But you haven’t provided any concrete facts just your disdain for the PGAT.  
    • We've got LIV vs PGA Tour match play on right now and its getting intense
