Looks like a decent field this week. Rose, Bradley, Watson, DJ, Spieth, Mahan, Dufner, Kuchar, Poulter, Oosthuizen, Westwood. Also, seems like there are some European tour players in the mix: Molinari, Olesen, and Dubuisson. Should be a good tournament.

Commonly won by shorter hitters an good putters. I like a sleeper guy like Pat Perez. Played real well this year, decent putter, shoulda won a few weeks ago. Harris English and Brian Davis also decent putters who I could see win. But who the hell knows

Sorry I fell asleep watching Freddie's swing :-D

That Harmon kid has crazy amount of forearm rotation in the backswing. His face angle is parallel to the path at or just past A2.

I watched him for a half hour, just puring every shot.

Yeah same thing with Brian Stuard, very odd takeaways because of how much they roll #3.

Good videos to check out with all the recent discussion in the Quickie Pitching Thread

I'm going to throw Jimmy Walker's name in there, dude is on a roll and he stated a couple days ago that this is his favorite tournament. Look for him to contend once again.

Looks like Couples & Dufner are using Trackman. Anyone else?

What's the typical percentage of those on the range using TM/FS on a Monday?

Thanks for the vids and pics Mike, wish I could be there.

Question? In post#5 there is a photo which looks like CH lll on the putting green.

What was the setup on the putting green?

(Putter had mechanism on lower part of shaft with a standup device perpendicular to the person on the green, connected to a laptop)

    • The progressive wing of the Dem party hates Kaine. He is pro TPP and favors deregulation to wall street. However he brings in VA and has a solid record on many issues for moderate Dems.
      I would not be surprised if you see Bernie speak at the DNC. He will tell his supporters that even though HRC is not their first choice he (Bernie) will have a better chance of working with  her for their issues, than DT! I hear they are countering Baio with prime time slot speech from Erin Moran!!!!!
    • Newtogolf's post is important.  I do not like hanging around people that are used to having a staff.  I just went on a raft trip with a friend of almost 50 years.  We do our own trips, and it is important for everyone to pitch in as it is a lot of work for guys in their 60s.  My friend just retired from being a doctor, and never really figured out how to help for the good of the group. He kept wanting to consider himself a "guest."   That is after we had some long discussions about being part of the team.  He will not be invited back. I would not want to play golf with people that are used to having a caddy either.   
    • Most double bogies, especially from the average golfer don't come from "taking risks", they come from a poor swing that results in OB, water hazard, lost in the woods, whatever.  A decent player can still break 80 with a double or two for exactly that reason, it's only a couple of bad swings.   The reason that most golfers never break 80 is that they make a lot of those bad swings, that add up.  But even good golfers, who break 80 (or better) consistently, will have the occasional bad swing that will result in a penalty and subsequently a double, or worse.   Which is "harder" is a matter of skill level. For me, someone who, as the OP asked, is as likely to break 80 as not, if I had to bet on the result of any given round before the first tee, I'd bet that I break 80 over a DB free round of any score.  Higher handicap players will find the opposite.  Scratch or better players will seldom fail to break 80, but will still have their share of individual blowup holes.  They'll just use their superior play on the remaining 16 or 17 holes to offset the couple of bad swings. 
    • I don't know enough about his situation.  Maybe not immediately -- he wouldn't qualify for the PGA Championship or the FedEx Cup playoffs (you can't earn points as a non-member, which he is for this event).  But probably by end of summer to start the 2016-17 PGA Tour season as a member.  Unless I'm forgetting someone, he'd be the third amateur to win a PGA Tour event in my lifetime (Verplank, Mickelson). 
    • Thanks.  I figured I would have heard by now if it made a difference, but I'm glad to hear it just the same. I tee off in just over three hours for my first round with the game golf.
