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.

    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
    • Thank you; in retrospect, although it now seems obvious, I (obviously) had no idea that the range needed mowing and other care. [Now what about the choice of Sunday?]
