The Australian Masters is on right now on the golf channel with defending champion Adam Scott tied for the lead and in the clubhouse already.

Notable players that I've seen so far are

ADAM SCOTT
BRENDON DE JONGE

MATT KUCHAR

VIJAY SINGH

other than that, the field is mainly unfamiliar (to me) Australians. Still fun golf to watch!

Jamie Donaldson is becoming one of my favorite players to watch.

I still want G Mac to win the whole thing though.

My guess is that Henrik Stenson will win it all though. It's his home turf.

I think I much prefer Euro tour commentary than that of the US, just straight golf...report whats being seen, no side stories. However, the on-course reporting of Maltbie, et al is always good, but the desk "analysts" always leave me wondering why I watch the golf channel.

Absolutely agree.

Speaking of commentary, I haven't heard Feherty in a LONG time, what's he been up to?

Good to see Jared Lyle back at the Aussie Masters

http://www.golfchannel.com/news/rex-hoggard/lyle-cards-emotional-72-aussie-masters-return/

Quote:

“The hardest part is over,” smiled Lyle, referring to his opening tee shot which was made even more difficult through tears. “It was everything I thought it was going to be. I was standing there ready to go and then I heard Lusi and I had to give her one last kiss. It was the best part.”

Lyle was informed by doctors in 2012 that the leukemia had returned just days before Lusi, his first child, was due and he postponed chemotherapy treatments until after her birth so he could hold her.

I appreciate the fans at the European events, mainly how there aren't any clowns yelling "mashed potato" or anything like that. They seem to be there to watch golf and not to try to make statements that will get on TV.

Couldn't agree more

The commentary is good over here in the UK and you'll get less adverts as well.

Stenson is on the charge and backing him to win this. Good to see Rory up there as well and a lot of other Brits!

Adam Scott once again goes into the clubhouse tied for the lead...9 under at Royal Melbourne after round 2.

I suppose that if Henrik is good enough to win the FedEx Cup then he's good enough to win the Race to Dubai. It's just that you wouldn't expect that level of performance from anyone outside of Tiger in his prime. No one has managed to win both in the same year, so we'll see if Stenson has it in him. That 287 yard 3i that rolls up to 5 feet was awesome.

After 3 rounds Stenson at -17, Victor Dub at -16, and Poulter at -13. Amazingly Jimenez (age 48) is sneaking around at -12.   And to refresh everyone's memory, Jimenez (hopefully) will be defending his title at the Hong Kong Open soon.  And not a few months back he broke his leg on the ski slopes. That's what happens when the male body is lean and fit; fast recovery, youthful stamina and the libido of a goat.

Adam Scott has a big lead in Australia over Matt Kuchar, Vijay Singh, and a bunch of guys with chronic sunburns who all look vaguely alike. Also of note, the Australian Masters' title sponsor has changed from a wealth-management company to a brand of Scotch whisky. I approve of this move.

Oops, not now. A double bogey while Kuch was simultaneously birdie-ing the next hole took care of that. ;) P.S. I love that I can sit here at 9pm local time and watch "tomorrow's" golf tournament AND I'm also watching a live football game from this afternoon in Hawaii. :)

    • That looks nifty, but… it's only really going to be an option for awhile in some high-end places, I'm wagering. If it's a full range, you can of course see your ball flight. So the tracer itself is probably not that important, right? The points and games are another thing, kinda TopGolf-like.
    • That looks awesome! I hope that sooner or later all driving ranges will have that technology built into them.  Was it more expensive than a regular bucket of balls?
    • I didn't take it that way. I know the HGG quote, and that it's a way of saying "goodbye." That's not exactly "cool" though either: Mike tells you he's mad at you, I demonstrate that your impact conditions and backswing are worse, and you say "okay, goodbye." But yeah, I took it this way: That fits quite well since you keep talking about how you have to know and understand the whole system just to implement a piece, and about how your brain works that way, and so on. How I took the fish quote is pretty clear from the response, is it not? All that said, I apologize. I took it the wrong way. I reacted more strongly than I would have had I taken it the HGG way, and I'm sorry for that. Disagreement isn't intolerable at all. But you're not really disagreeing with anything, either… you're choosing to ignore things, and you seem to think that you're not being helped. You're wasting our time. Disagreement? At least there's discourse there. Ignoring? That's just a (small) slap in the face… Mike and I - and others - have given you a boatload of free advice. I can't speak for others, but I don't expect you to pay for anything, ever. When all else fails, play the victim card again? Anyone who has met @mvmac will tell you he's not quick to anger. So if you pissed him off, well, then more than likely you did something, and are not just some passive victim. P.S. You're likely getting better because you're hitting balls. You're learning how to make the flaws in your swing at least time themselves up right. You're learning to time your flip just right so that you can pick the ball off the ground without fatting or thinning it. You're learning how to sway your hips and drop your head back/early extend on the downswing so you can hit out a little bit despite being super steep (and you need a really closed stance to help you with that). You're getting better at making a flawed swing because you're repeating it often. You're lowering the ceiling on how good you can get each time you visit the range and don't practice properly, or practice the proper things. Your swing may actually be worse now than a week or two ago. We tried to help you - free, and by giving you much of our most valuable asset (our time) - and you instead pissed off one of the calmest people around and ignored the advice of many others, including me, who knows what I'm talking about. Then you chose to play the victim after a vague reference to fish, and took the easy out of saying "oh, you just don't like people who disagree." No, I don't like people who waste my time, but the solution on my end is very easy: I simply choose to stop wasting my time on them. I don't care if you disagree. I prefer it, really, so long as you're a worthy adversary. You? You don't stack up. We can't talk about some intricate part of the golf swing. Nor should you at this point, or possibly ever, because you're a golfer, not a golf instructor. That's all fine. But I can choose to stop giving you free advice, and spending my time doing it.  So if your goal is to have me ignore you from here on out, you've succeeded! :-) I'll spend my time helping those who appreciate it.
    • Did anyone make it to this?  I had some things come up and couldn't make it. Also, we should get a spring round get together going...
    • You misunderstand. Yes, of course he is one of the ATGs on the current list. What I am saying is that can change, not that it will, but it can. Like I said it is an ever expanding/changing list.
