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.

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.

Phil needs birdie to make probable cut (+4). Decent drive but he's not too thrilled with it. Update: needs a 40 footer I think,with what Faldo says is. "sideways golf"

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.

So now that Bubba is done doesn't feel as exciting. Now or very soon would be a good time to bail on work and head to the course. Already got my shoes on.

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.

    • My mother's son remembers polio.  😉 I remember the scare, and a friend of mine wearing those metal leg braces.  He turned out OK, and I played basketball against him in high school. We didn't have "vents", but we had "Iron Lungs." In 1952, the number of polio cases in the U.S. peaked at 57,879, resulting in 3,145 deaths.   The deadly polio epidemic and why it matters for coronavirus Polio was nearly eradicated with the Salk vaccine in 1955. At the time, little was known about this mysterious disease that paralyzed and sometimes killed young children.  
    • this is first few lines of my 2020 goals; can't seem to do it properly (I didn't see any little plus sign but I did copy and paste)  My goals are to improve score through more time on the course.  I hope to play more and different local courses, and this will mean either solo or pick up some partners from the past.  I've been trying to hook up with these good ole friends from last century and only been able to a couple times. 2020 goals were to spend more time on the course.  I feel that will bring down my score avg and increase enjoyment.  My playing partner (that brought me back to the game) cannot play as much as I need so I started playing at least one round a week by myself to get on-course practice.  After a while, that gets a little old but still good for my game; I might hit a shot twice, mostly second shots.  I also finally hooked up with golf buddies from way past and now play on several of the really nice courses with old friends. This added time on course has improved my scores (and additionally added new specialized type clubs).  But last week, I was brought back down to earth as I actually could not finish a round (thru 12) due to my back problems returning; I had been getting 'uncomfortable' for a little while but denied the golf connection.  So I have been resting the last 2 weeks and now am pain-free again which tells me it's not the light work I have taken up but the golf.   Seems I may have to be satisfied with certain limitations and re-set some goals but I'm not quitting; it has been such a pleasure getting out on a golf course like I do.  I really appreciate it nowaday and enjoy the whole picture.  My home course is in very much isolation from the world and sometime, I never cross another group, no houses, total quiet... (so different from some of the stories I've seen here) I am still searching for a new used set of irons - with graphite shafts and other changes in club set-up designed to keep us ole farts in the game.  Arthritis is a b*tch.    
    • No. “Don’t hit it into the water,” is not the same thing as, “That club isn’t going to carry the water.” And then the next time the guy tries to say you’ll have a tough shot, you can say, “For you, maybe.”
