Sergio Garcia is on fire

13 posts in this topic

Something has lit a fire under El Niño. After stellar play and a 2nd place finish in the Open, he just shot one of the best rounds today I've ever seen. He birdied 8 out of 9 holes and shot 27 on the back nine.. Including a birdie on 667 yard #16! Finished with a career low 61! Wow He may just have what it takes to finally capture that elusive major. and the irony of it all, the PGA is at Valhalla! His ballstriking has always been solid, but suddenly he's found his stroke on the greens. I wish the guy well

believe it or not I was saying to my self that he might birdie out the way he was striking his irons on the flags.12 and 13 I think were the close ones when I thought that but then he was only getting to within 15 feet or so but his putter was on lighting it up.

Even Mickelson looked on in awe watching Sergio drop 7 straight birdies coming in. Absolutely amazing..

He's getting hot the way Stenson did last year. Hopefully he can maintain the momentum.

I hope so. I picked him to win the PGA next week! If not for Rory's insane playing at the Open, Sergio would have won.

Sergio has already birdied three more today on the front and now just birdied again on 11 with zero bogies... This is what you call, "in the zone" im very impressed so far..

His odds next week are 25-1.......might want to jump on that before they goes down (which they will).

Looks like it's going to be the same guys fighting for this WGC as the Open. Sergio and Rory will be in the final group. I hope it's exciting..

Like I said, there go the odds. In the matter of hours, Sergio went from 25-1 next week to 12-1.

    • No offense, but in my opinion this makes you unprepared to discuss it.
    • Every year, something is changed in a club design.  The real differences are minimal, assuming your current clubs are from within the last 10 or so years (just throwing out a random number).

      However, I just got upgraded to the Ping G driver from the Ping G30, and the big change I noticed is the face of the driver has a bit more friction on the G (at least as I understand it).  What it seems to do is reduce side spin, while retaining normal-ish back spin (I use the low-spin tec version).  When I miss-hit a drive with my old driver vs the newer one, I see noticeably less slice or hook with the newer version.
        When I go through those articles, I mostly read through the reviews of them.  It gives a better idea of what might be better.
    • Right, but then you're just getting into however different people value different things (including money, the performance of their golf clubs, the looks of the golf clubs, the value of a name brand, etc.). People have different values. For something like this, there's rarely any agreement on those, nor is there any "right" or "wrong" answers. I use a set of muscle backs that could just as easily be from the 1950s as now. The tech on those isn't really improving much (though the shafts are undoubtedly much better).
    • We went round and round a bit on this last year, but I don't remember seeing decision 15-3b/1 mentioned.  The difference between this decision and 27/6 seems to be that B's ball is found in a timely manner.  The finding of the "other" ball makes it virtually certain that A's ball was moved by an outside agency (Player B).  In the other thread, B's ball is never found.  27/6 allows the same kind of relief as long as the "other" ball is found within the 5-minute search limit.  As I read the rules and decisions, this is a timing issue,  the rules require a decision to be made within 5 minutes of beginning the search for A's ball.  If the "other ball" isn't found, its presumed lost.   In a way this is somewhat similar to another discussion we had, where a player's ball apparently hit a cart path and went much further than anticipated.  He searched and didn't find it at the expected distance, went back and played another tee shot for the lost ball, and eventually found the original much closer to the green.  He couldn't then put the original into play and "negate" the second tee ball, as he'd already searched for 5 minutes. I don't know if the difference in the timing of the discovery is adequate justification for the different outcomes, but that seems to me to be the defining factor.  It would be interesting to get the take of some of the USGA rules experts on this, not on what the rules say, but on why they draw the distinction.
    • I'd have thought there would be a sliding scale, akin to a volume discount. Not just $x/18 = per-hole cost. Or if there are obvious points where it's not terrible to get back to the clubhouse, make 3-hole, 7-hole, 11-hole, 15-hole, and 18-hole rates. Then you could even consider the par of the holes. Heck, if the course started par 5, 4, 5 I'd be tempted to just play the first three holes three times.  I'd get more for my money than playing holes 4, 5, and 6 which are pars 3, 4, 3.
