here is an early stroke play leader board

Seems like the shorter Charles River Course is playing just as tough as Brookline. Lots of high ranked amateurs not in the top 64, including Fox and last year's runner up. Some good unknowns are up there pretty high, including the kid from Temple University who got knocked out of the US Open when another kid made four straight birdies at the qualifier in Purchase, NY.

T85 when I posted the link.

Plenty of the world's top Am's are outside of top 150 right now. They'll need to play well today.

Brandon Matthews is far from an unknown. He has wiped up the field in all of the major tournaments (including Opens against professionals) in the Philly area. I suspect that he is one of the favorites.

phan52, you and I know who Brandon is because we are from Philly, but people using the msg. board who reside in Oklahoma, Florida, or California, let alone Australia or England, do not. In that sense, he is unknown. In our Golf Assoc of Philadelphia world, of course he is well known.

Additionally, I'm not sure I'd call him one of the favorites either. He isn't ranked in the top 200 among world amateurs. He's not even the highest ranked player from Pennsylvania. That honor belongs to Nathan Smith. I'm rooting for him, though.

Cut line just moved from +4 to +5. Looks like there will be a playoff with approximately 20 players for approximately 10 spots, depending on how the final pairings finish.

    • I always use Swing x Swing for the statistical feedback so it keeps track for me.  When playing with buddies and there's a friendly wager at stake, I will also keep traditional scorecard for all parties so that it's all transparent and easily reviewable by all.
    • well since 2013, i've been messing around with the Maxfli U series balls..  started with the U2,  cuz i had a nasty slice lol..   tried the U3's and U4's both had bad results cuz i still had a awful slice...  then in 2015, i tried the Maxfli Softfli figuring if i worked on slowing my swing down and just making better contact, i'd get straighter drives / keep the ball in play  and lower my scores...   while at first it didnt happen....  this summer has been a world of difference.... So this summer i started out just working on keeping my swing short and making good contact... which has worked wonders!!   i was still using the SoftFli, and hitting my drives a lot straighter and longer..  my iron shots also ended up being better too...     but then my issue became stopping the ball on the green.. cuz i was hitting a lot of greens but having the ball roll off or i'd go past the pin, but no backspin..     So today, i decided to try some of the U6lc balls i bought last summer...  and i dont know if they are any longer or shorter off the driver or even the irons..didnt notice anything...   i did lose 2..  1 cuz i grabbed the wrong wedge lol  56-12 on a tight lie and shanked one off into the tree's...  and 2nd ball i tried to cut across a small dogleg right... and sliced the ball into a corn field lol...    but this ball was awesome on iron and wedge shots..  had several wedge shots, where i spun the ball back..  had a 7iron on a par 3, that i spun the ball back too...    so for green side shots, this ball surprised me alot..  i have tried playing PRoV's and the U4's in the past but my short game wasnt great so i didnt get the good short game control..     But for someone looking for a good " Tour Type " of ball at a reasonable price, look into the U6's    i plan on using the U6's for a long time!!      hopefully they dont discontiue these anytime soon  
    • I understand it is subjective but how do you measure 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 on an Erik pitch and a full swing?
    • How is it playing from a wrong place when the ball was still moving when it was struck?  It should be 14-2 and 18-5, and you refer to 1-4/12 for the explanation as to why breaching two two stroke rules doesn't result in a total of 4 penalty strokes.
