I just did something that I rarely ever do: turn off golf on the HDTV.

Matt Google's awkward interviews. The constant stream of CEOs boasting about their companies. The gawdawful Chris Berman swings. Even with the beautiful views of Pebble, it got too much. I may not watch Saturday because of the constant celelb crap. Rather just see good golf on the world's best courses with good commentary, thank you.

Rick, we just got two feet of snow here in Massachusetts.  I am going to watch just to see something green!  I also use the "mute" button on my remote judiciously.

Well, I guess they won't be sharing any stories about hooking up with girls on the road.

Not my favourite tournament. Im not a fan of the celebs. And I probably wouldn't be watching if it wasn't the winter or if it wasn't at Pebble.

I saw a couple people say they won't watch this event until Sunday, and I'm in that group as well.  I have followed the leaderboard the first three days, and I'll be watching closely tomorrow.  Sneds is on a major roll right now, and it will be interesting to see if he can pull out a win at Pebble.  I'm ready for the WGC-Match Play in a couple weeks, and I'm ready for the Florida Swing!

Don't forget Clint Eastwood's incoherent mumbling...

That's a practice round.  It's his caddy - and they are using the tee's to mark the potential pin locations.  So when the professional (this case DJ) gets up to the green.... The caddy will put down tee's or markers to show the player where the pins are typically placed during the tournament.  Each green typically has 4 places where they like to place the pin.  So in the video - DJ is just chipping some balls to that particular pin location highlighted by his caddy.

    • A couple death shots from today's round. First one was death of my driver (shaft). The shaft snapped on a routine swing about an inch above the ferrule. Wasn't a chunk, or contact off the heel/hosel area, no idea what happened. Impact felt weird, and then the driver head was hanging a bit funny, and was still partially connected, but the shaft was clearly toast. Contacted Cobra customer service, and hopefully I can get a new shaft sorted out under warranty since the club is only ~6 months old. Second one was on #17. I hit my approach shot to the green which missed about a yard right, kicked right off a slope, and landed right behind an old stump with tall grass growing all around it. If it lands 2 feet right or left, it's a pretty easy pitch onto the green Perspective on the photo isn't great, but to go at the hole the ball would basically need to pop straight up, and the stump is obstructing any type of follow through. The only chance I had was to stub a wedge into the ground behind the ball and try to pop it up over the stump. Didn't work and the ball ricocheted back about 3-4 yards, where I put the next one on the green, and 2 putted for 6.
    • Hmm.. yeah. Well let's see what we get. 
    • Day 323 Played 18 today. Started off hitting the ball really well, and felt like I was going to have a solid day of ballstriking. Then the shaft of my driver snapped on the third hole on a routine shot, and I mentally checked out after that. At least I got a lot of good practice hitting 3W today.
    • Get’n those bad ones out early - it’s all about peaking at the right time 
    • As a 53 year former resident of Ohio and a graduate of THE Ohio State University, I would like to play next year if your rules allow.
