Watching Bubba on the 18th was the most infuriating thing ever. He needs to be slapped when he starts whining like that.

I didn't see whining as much as WTF shock.

Yeah, he does the same thing as several other pros when they miss putts due to bad reads that they were confident in.  The big difference is that he doesn't give his WTF look to the hole or the sky or somewhere off in space, but directly at his caddie every time.  So it always looks like he's yelling at his caddie.

Boring?  BORING?  Mike & Mike, Mad Dog Radio, etc etc how could these guys even use the word?  Did these sportscasters even watch the tournament, or did they tune in for the last 3 holes and expec

It's not the weather, though, as you may expect ... But rather, Phil Mickelson is just starting his practice round. ;)

Rory appears to be taking the scenic route on this fourth hole.

That was a weird slice swing with a wood on that par 3 by Rory. Looked kinda OTT and awkward. Keegan +4 on Amen Corner today, taking him well over cut line.

Yeah but some are looking for something that isn't there. He can be a crab for sure but with that putt it appeared more like he was asking Ted "can you believe that". He didn't have a reason to rag on Ted for anything. Unless I missed it I didn't see him anywhere near Bubba when he was lining up the putt.

I agree .. but I was talking more about the perception.  People see the face of exasperation and can't hear the words, and they remember that video from last year that Kieran just posted, and they think "Oh, here he goes again, blaming his caddie for his screw up."

7 straight bogeys from the Top 5 Player...

This may be petty, but I hope Reed misses the cut so I don't have to watch him strut around in his Tiger Woods Underoos on Sunday.

That is pretty petty. :beer: I'm kinda hoping he misses the cut too, but just so I don't have to listen to everybody complain about him. ;-)

The "top 5" comments weren't even clever the first time.

I hate when these past champions, well past their prime, take up a spot for more deserving player. Oh wait, Freddie is -3, Jose M. O is even, Mize,Langer +2.  Guess they can play after all.

Correct. Wasn't clever for Reed to say it the first time, let alone all the others ;-)

It's still possible that the cut will move to +5.

It's possible. There are 4 guys on the course at +4, 4 guys on course at +3, 3 guys on the course at +2. It's playing tough now it seems. But 6 of those 10 need to drop to +5.

    • Haven't posted a video in a while. I have been working really hard on my swing... REALLY HARD.  Anyway, I don't have any new video to post. But I do have some old video to post.  I'm just sticking these here as a benchmark to where I was. The first one is a 2009 video of my driver swing. This is back when I was working with my previous swing coach. I was playing well at the time, handicap was around 10-14. My miss at the time was a snap hook.  I know the exposure stinks. Again, it's just a benchmark for me.    The next two videos are from 2015. At the time I was between swing coaches. My handicap at the time was around 16. Although I distinctly remember playing some great and some horrible rounds at the time. At the time I was really REALLY REALLY fighting the snap hook. Some days the snap hook would be manageable and I would score really well. Other times, I simply wouldn't be able to get off the tee. The swing coach I would get about a year and a half after these videos were taken would be the swing coach I'd end up sticking with up until now.  Again, I'm just sticking these here for my reference.     
    • You really believe that nobody is 100% evil? There are at least 6,000,000 people that would have disagreed with you. But they're dead.
    • Over my lifetime I've voted in every presidential election for which I've been old enough to vote. I have voted for Democrats. I've voted for Republicans. I have voted for candidates who've won, and for candidates who've lost. My personal policy has always been to vote for the candidate of my choice, and then support who ever wins. If I'm ever invited to the Oval Office, I'm going! ... Again, it's pretty unlikely that I will ever get invited, but you never know.  I have to agree with you here. I can name some really good things and some things that I totally disagree with from every president in my lifetime. 
    • There are so many other curses and obscenities he could have used to express frustration and he chose that. Really sad on many levels.
