Did anyone see the drive, chip, and putt competition Sunday at Augusta on golf channel.

I thought it was great to see all those kids out there playing great golf and getting the opportunity to play on the grounds of Augusta National. Golf channel covered it well considering this was the first go around. What did you think?

I watched parts of this. Some of the kids were really good, especially with the nerves. I saw some 12 year old hit a 250yd, straight down the middle, really impressive.

Also their faces when they barely hit the putt and it went 10ft past on 18!

I watched it for awhile. Pretty cool stuff. Inspiring.

Of course, great PR for the club, and the pros participating. Nothing wrong with that either.

I saw a bit of it and recognized a bunch of the kids that were in "The Short Game" as well.  Fun stuff for all those kids.

I missed it.  I wanted to see it too.


Not enough black kids - PGA tour needs more black professional golfers to get a better following/demographic - to compete with the major sports. Just my opinion. No offense.

Perhaps the reason there weren't enough black kids is simply because bugger all black kids play golf? It's funny that some people see kids having a chance to play somewhere they will never get to play again while others only see the colour of the kids skin. Mailman

I watched it. I was really impressed with the kids, not just their playing ability but their manners, attitude, and respect for the game of golf. Those kids showed a much more mature attitude towards sportsmanship and the game they love than kids who play any other sport. I say that as one who coached kids baseball for many years.

    • Even if his equipment contract with Nike was still valid (which it isn't because of Nike's withdrawal from the equipment business), it still wouldn't be illegal. He'd just have to either have Nike work some magic and put the swoosh on the gear he wanted (it was rumored for a long time that Bridgestone actually made the balls for Nike tour pros) or pay some sort of fine specified in the contract. That said, Nike definitely wouldn't be happy if he broke the terms of the contract, but he is safe to play whatever equipment he chooses so long as it's TM now, since he chose to sign with them after Nike stopped producing equipment. I wonder what the terms of the contracts looked like and whether Nike had to buy out the remaining equipment contracts for their tour professionals like Rory and Tiger.
    • The are by Definition, Immovable Obstructions. It needs a declaration by the Committee to make them an IPC From England Golf: 4. Immovable Obstructions (Rule 24–2) include:
      a) All artificially surfaced roads and paths on the course, including those covered with wood chips. All other paths and tracks are integral parts of the course.
      b) White lined areas adjoining any immovable obstruction are part of the obstruction and not ground under repair.
      c) Stone-filled drainage ditches or channels.
      d) Sleepers, steps or wooden boards within bunkers.
    • Played a round at Pebble Beach and Muirfield Village on the simulator last weekend.  Low winds and gimme on the green.  Shot +2 and +1.  Even assuming I add on another 14 to 16 strokes, am happy to have played bogey golf on those courses.  Was beaming the rest of the day post that
    • He played Nike gear right up until they announced they were getting out of the golf equipment business.  The other equipment mentioned was from when he was an amateur and when he turned pro before Nike made clubs. His first equipment deal was with Titleist, but there was some lag time between turning pro until Titleist made him clubs to play.
    • Matsuyama, Spieth and DJ all winning in consecutive weeks is creating a lot of drama heading into the Masters, not to mention Justin Thomas emerging as a contender with his terrific play.  Already three wins for Thomas in the wrap-around 2017 season! You have to consider those four the big favourites....though there's also McIlroy going for the career grand slam, Day looking to contend again (though this could be a 'lost to swing changes' kind of year for him), Fowler looking to break through with a major, plus old standbys like Mickelson or Westwood likely to be buzzing around the leaderboard again.  Maybe we'll see Langer turn some heads again, or Couples once again be in the mix heading into the weekend. In short, this is promising to be a terrific Masters, even if/when Tiger has to WD again.
