Watching the Sony Open at Waialae Country Club it looks like the margins of the putting greens are painted green. I'm well aware of the necessity for the player to know whether is ball in "on" or "off" of putting green. I've not seen painted putting green edges before. Anyone else?

I didn't even notice until you pointed that out...good catch. I have played a course this winter that had parts of the fairway painted green, but I'm surprised to see that at a tour event, and in HI no less. Maybe a lot more courses do this and I just haven't noticed.

This started in the Rules folder because I was curious if any other Rules Officials had been called upon to delineate the margins of a putting green with paint. Where I work, we carry four colors, red, yellow and white for the obvious reasons ... and green, which is for our mistakes.

I watched last night and have no idea what you're talking about. I didn't see anything like that. Post a screenshot or something.

This tournament is a visual let down compared to Kapalua last week. Kapalua has stunning views and huge elevation changes where the camera can follow the shot with the entire hole in view.  The Sony is crowded with houses and looks very claustrophobic in comparison.

Im getting tired of hearing jordan spieth say go hard on every shot. Lol

Hahaha for sure. Also tired of the announcers kissing his a$$ after every halfway decent shot.

Should be a good week, this is Adam Scott's first tournament this season without Steve on the bag, one of his surfer buddies is carrying this week.

Benji Weatherly! Awesome pro surfer when he was in his prime. I love when the lines blur slightly between my two favorite things to do!

I thought it was a variation of a greeting :smartass: .

Back to OP, saw Tianlang's name below cut line (actually near the bottom).   Didn't see much of him on TV.   I take it that he hasn't made much progress since last year?

Did the Golf Channel guys announced that Spieth is the next Tiger :whistle: ?

The way they talk about Jordan, you would think so. Not to dis J.S., but there are Many talented players out there. What I don't like is when t.v. folks try to cram something, or someone dow our throats, dam commercialism. :yucky:

Rory didn't step up last year so I guess Jordan gets to try on Tiger's shoes this season.

I have to press my TV's mute button sometimes.

(LPGA coverage is far worse.  They try to make players more interesting than they really are.   I don't want to know what a player's favorite past time is.   Just cover the damn sports.)

I thought I was the only one, no disrespect to Jordan Speith, or Harris English, but the early crowning as the next best thing just gets very, very annoying. I just wanna watch golf, I don't care if he surfs, rescues puppies, eats only veggies, just show me golf!!

That's why I would rather watch euro commentary over American commentary any day, any darn time.

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.
