2014 Greenbrier Classic Discussion Thread

30 posts in this topic

The Greenbrier Classic features five of the top-10 players in the FedExCup standings, including the top 2 in Jimmy Walker and Bubba Watson.

Waker, a three-time winner in the 2013-2014 wrap-around season, leads the reigning Masters champ by 239 points. So depending on Sunday's outcome, there could be a change at the top of the standings for just the second time this season.

Also at stake are four spots in The Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. The top four players not otherwise exempt among the top 12 finishers on Sunday earn the invitations to the game's oldest major thanks to the Open Qualifying Series.

Here are some of the groups PGATOUR.COM will be watching. Use the Comments section below to let us know your favorite groups.

For complete tee times, click here.

Thursday

Brendon Todd, J.B. Holmes, Bubba Watson: Todd has shown no signs of slowing down since winning the HP Byron Nelson Championship, posting his third top-10 in the last four weeks at Congressional on Sunday. (Rd. 1 - 12:50 p.m. ET off No. 1; Rd. 2 - 7:50 a.m. ET off No. 10)

Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley, Tom Watson: Watson is the Ryder Cup captain and right now Simpson and Bradley are outside the automatic qualifiers at Nos. 17 and 18, respectively. (Rd. 1 -- 1 p.m. ET off No. 1, Rd. 2 -- 8 a.m. ET off No. 10)

Friday

Patrick Reed, Bill Haas, Steve Stricker: Reed took a two-stroke lead into the final round Sunday at the Quicken Loans National and will be looking to atone for that 77 that kept him from winning for the third time this year. (Rd. 1 -- 7:50 a.m. ET off No. 10, Rd. 2 -- 12:50 p.m. ET off No. 1)

Jimmy Walker, Scott Stallings, Jonas Blixt: Stallings and Blixt are former Greenbrier Classic winners while Walker seeks his fourth win of the season. (Rd. 1 -- 8 a.m. ET off No. 10, Rd. 2 -- 1 p.m. ET off No. 1)

Quote:

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – Much like Sam Snead once was, Tom Watson now holds the position of golf professional emeritus. Now he’s chasing after one of Snead’s old records.

With a 2-under 68 on Friday, Watson made the cut at The Greenbrier Classic for the third straight year.

At 64 years and 10 months exactly, Watson is still more than two years younger than Snead when he set the record for oldest player to make the cut at a PGA tour event. Snead was 67 years, 2 months and 21 days when he played all four rounds at the 1979 Manufacturers Hanover Westchester Classic.

Snead also holds the record for the oldest player to finish in the top-10. He was 63 years, 3 months and 4 days when he accomplished that feat at the 1975 B.C. Open.

If Watson can move up the leaderboard over the next two days and claim a top-10 result, he would own the new record.

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm enjoying the tournament, as usual. I admit, that it would be nice to see Tiger playing and blowing it out his ass again this week though. :-P

Cabrera playing well is good to see. He actually played really well at Liverpool the last time the Open was there. Entered the final round 2 back of Tiger before fading a bit on Sunday.

One of the biggest mysteries is why the Big Fella hasn't won more in the States. He was an eyelash away from winning his 3rd major last year at Augusta and that doesn't happen by luck, not to mention he's put himself in the mix in other majors as well. But yet he is never on the leaderboard in any regular PGA or even Euro PGA event. Just strange for a guy with his talent.

Because he gives no shits. He just plays once a year, at Augusta. Fantastic he's back in the winners circle. One of my favorite golfers

    • Phil had diarhia  of the mouth yesterday, giving a reason for the poor play of he and tiger in 2004 RC as not being prepared to play and test Tigers golf ball that is "higher spin" versus his low spin ball.  Plausible only with Phil.  4-5 hours??? Puh-lease. I have been involved in 3rd party testing of golf balls and i can actually say that Phil is full of Sh*t here. The overall difference in spin from tour caliber golf balls, rememebr we are going back to to 2004, the diference is insignificant off the driver, from eight iron on down to wedges the spin characteriscs averge out  from one one spinny tour ball to and the next low spin tour ball is less than 5%. in other words a 5000 RPM wedge shot with the higher spin ball would be 4750 RPM at the worst case scenario.  Remember these are 20o3-04 golf balls, the TA and PV1 are just a couple of years old at this point. Phil likes to talk, I get that, I like the guy, but please just shut up about ball spin and admit you ( and tiger) played badly, too much limelight for both is much more plausible. Two thumbs up for Hal  Suttons response too.   In alternate shot, you play with one ball, and that was the issue, Mickelson said. "[Woods] found out the year before when we played at the Presidents Cup in 2003 that the golf ball I was playing was not going to work for him," Mickelson said. "He plays a very high-spin ball and I play a very low-spin ball, and we had to come up in two days with a solution. "So I grabbed a couple dozen of his balls, I went off to the side, and tried to learn his golf ball in a four- or five-hour session on kind of an isolated -- one of the other holes out there trying to find out how far the ball goes. And it forced me to stop my preparation for the tournament, to stop chipping and stop putting and stop sharpening my game and stop learning the golf course, in an effort to crash-course and learn a whole different golf ball that we were going to be playing. "In the history of my career, I have never ball-tested two days prior to a major. I've never done it. It doesn't allow me to play my best. What allows me to play my best is to learn the course, sharpen my touch on the greens, sharpen my chipping out of the rough and ball striking and so forth. "Instead, I'm taking four or five hours and I'm out trying to learn another ball to allow us to play our best. Had we known a month in advance, we might have been able to make it work. I think we probably would have made it work. But we didn't know until two days prior."
    • I played baseball at a big 10 university for 4 years, tennis for 40 years, and learned to play golf at a very young age but did not play frequently in my younger years.  Accordingly, I am athletic and have a decent game for my age group now.  Extremely accurate but not long by any stretch.  When I was 60, I started to take golf seriously (Like most people getting close to retirement age) and really can't complain about my game.  The one thing that took me forever to learn and understand is:  "Feel is NOT real."  What you THINK you are doing is NOT really what you are doing.  So......I would advise any player who wants to improve their game to, have some video taken of your swing and watch it.  You will be amazed.  Your swing will be NOTHING like you think it is.  (LOL) 
    • That's great! Is your season ending too? I'm going to be sad to see it end.   Thanks, everyone! He played well yesterday (tied for 2nd out of 21 players) and today he's playing 2 hours away at the "hardest course in our state", according to his coach. Yikes! 
      After today, he will be practicing for the championship. We're going to go play the course on Sunday. (By we, I mean him and his teammate - with me driving the cart.) ;)
      The tournament is Thursday, so we have a week to get ready. 
      Here's a nice hit from yesterday.   
    • Recently we saw tour groups of 3, ovbviously walking, and at times waiting for greens to clear, plumbobbing putts,, checking yardage and wind, you know the usual stuff, they played thier round at the DBC in 3 hours and 30 minutes which I thought was fine.   I immediatly passed it along to my tortise golfers, explaining that they take 15 less swings but walk a 7400 yard course ( as oppossed to 6400), wjy does it take them 4:45-5:30?
