Hard to believe that happened really. You can see her pull her head out of it way early though. That's embarrassing for a beginner on the local muni, much less on national television in a pro event.

So according to @Fourputt , he never started play on the hole and even if it did it wasn't played in accordance with the rules, so he should mark down a birdie because he's like a +5, so… :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

Bold move by dropping the ball and hitting it in mid-air with the putter head. Had he missed it would have just amplified the amount of fail in that video. He hit the ball when he didn't want to and then couldn't hit it when wanted to. Fortunately he seemed to strike it well

Yeah saw that on the replay last night, Fuzzy's reaction is pretty funny.  No problem, they still made birdie on the hole.

@iacas what Key do you think she was missing? :-P

I was thinking of the 0th Law of Thermodynamics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeroth_law_of_thermodynamics. But lets go with the Kung Fu Panda thing. :-P

Methinks that somebody is dorky like me and just really likes the word "zeroth" ... because isn't this:

" The zeroth law of thermodynamics states that if two systems are each in thermal equilibrium with a third system, they are also in thermal equilibrium with each other."

... really just the transitive property? :beer:

    • Darts does have the advantage of being played in many venues where you can get a pint at any time during the game, as opposed to golf, where you only get the reward when you're done.  Unless you're in the US, of course, where many courses have a roving bar-cart to help you enjoy your round.
    • Furyk getting tight under Ryder Cup pressure could well be true or at least partly true. That critique seems partly true of the U.S. squad in general, doesn't it? Bubba's record is comparably poor at 3-8-0. Considering his dominance and winning percentage in stroke play and beat the field average, Tiger's Ryder Cup record isn't too stellar either. I'm just saying that Furyk (& Tiger too) may not have been used as smartly by the Captains as say, Luke Donald given his relative strengths and weaknesses. Donald tended to be sat for fourball where Furyk played both formats about the same amount, and maybe not with the right complementary partners for the foursomes. When Donald's relative approach game and putting (& birdie/bogie ratio) ranking slipped in 2014 he wasn't picked for the Euro team, because it seems his relative potential contribution (producing birdies) in alternate shot / foursomes had diminished.   Furyk Donald   SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd 2016 -0.294 0.195 0.458 0.285 121 165 69 -0.583 0.060 0.645 0.449 82 181 16 2015 0.064 -0.024 1.081 0.513 15 83 8 -0.793 0.289 0.573 0.514 121 171 46 2014 0.121 0.091 1.175 0.408 5 97 1 -0.493 0.517 0.315 0.351 93 108 93 2013 0.023 0.092 0.950 0.323 25 78 14 -0.459 0.528 0.583 0.628 45 42 58 2012 0.225 0.423 0.830 0.275 9 145 1 -0.188 0.818 0.582 0.430 13 66 7 2011 -0.017 -0.160 0.643 0.190 77 147 32 0.040 0.870 1.094 0.273 1 4 1 2010 0.150 0.402 0.641 0.367 21 76 21 -0.506 0.870 0.661 0.464 16 109 9 AVG 0.039 0.146 0.825 0.337 39 113 21 -0.426 0.565 0.636 0.444 53 97 33 10-'13 0.095 0.189 0.766 0.289 33 112 17 -0.278 0.772 0.730 0.449 19 55 19 Furyk's record is horrible in the better ball / fourball format. I think that may be due to his relative lack of distance where it's harder for him to contribute much and bogey avoidance (his strength) is less important than making birdies. I expect Furyk's often been set up in a fourball pairing like Kuchar and Watson in '14 where the relatively short, but good putter / short game guy (Kuchar) was expected to complement the long hitter (Watson). Watson and Kuchar made many birdies, but still got smoked by two superior ball-strikers with average putting due to the better ball / fourball format. Rose's excellent short game helped that team in the alternate shot/foursomes format where their ball-striking was maybe less of an overt advantage than in better ball.
    • Yeah. Their products have been really solid. The 5C was iffy, but then again, the price was dirt cheap (relatively speaking). I may or may not be working for a company that supplies parts for them now, so I hope they get more popular.
    • It's all part of the deal. Especially when you are golfers like us (note my HI). Look at it this way. A couple of weeks ago I traveled three hours to our TST outing in Norwalk, OH and proceeded to barf on my shoes for 18 holes solid. Had one of my best rounds last week. It happens. Get away from it for a bit, get over it and when you come back you'll do better.
    • This sounds really really dull.  The kind of dull I'd really like to get used to seeing n my own game.
