Had read that Vijay was going to play but now has withdrawn. Due to current antler disucssions?

I think it is awesome for this tournament to have a hole like the 16th.  It's a great idea to have some craziness out there on the course.  I tune in to this tournament just to watch the groups go through that hole.

I think Watney is going to come away with the victory this weekend.

Corral all the "IN THE HOLE" people in one place?

The 16th is cool and definitely unique in golf but I like to watch the 17th. I love driveable par 4s in the final few holes at PGA events, it changes the entire dynamic of the leaderboard over the last few holes, especially on sunday.

Totally.  There are a bunch of fun holes coming down the stretch here.  You mentioned 17, and both par 5's are reachable, and one has an island green basically.

I predict Ryan Moore wins this week.  (For selfish reasons ... I want my Trues!  And I want to get them on sale!)

Go Ryno!!!

Yeah, but they get drowned out by all the other people shouting random stuff.  It is comical.  One Pro last year whipped the crowd into a loud roar before his shot so the noise would be constant.  I love how they boo if a bad shot is hit.

Did you all see the Pro Am last night?  Michael Phelps was on.  He told the announcer that before a race, he doesn't even notice the crowd at the Olympics.  Before his tee shot on 16, he said his heard was pounding through his chest.

I'm conflicted by the Wasted Management.

I enjoy it as a one off event, but it sets a bad precedent.

Heh. I don't watch this tournament because of that hole. :-P

I enjoy it once a year, but it would get old on a weekly basis.  Right now, Phil is absolutely torching the golf course (-8 through 10 holes).  It will be interesting to see if he can keep the mojo going the rest of the round and weekend.

Up to -10 thru 14 holes!  I tried to find a place to watch online but was unsuccessful.  I think I'll go to the range instead.

That would be sweet!  I'd like to get a pair of the Black Protos now that I got the White/Grey.  They are sweet!

I can't believe he didn't make the putt on #8 (his 17th) or #9 (his 18th). It was actually brutal to watch. I don't even like Phil, and I feel bad for him after that final putt.

The easier putt was the one on #8 (his 17th) and he left it short. I was shocked at that, under the circumstances.

Yeah, it was on line too. One more rotation was all he needed for a place in history.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
