Rory now tied for lead and has two reachable par-5s in the next 9 holes. Here's his chance to hit the gas pedal a little bit.

Just listening on my ipad to the PGA App........they were saying that there is definitely a difference how they mow the fairways.... At August they mow them Green to Tee whereas for the PGA, they mowed them Tee to Green. This most definitely will have an effect on play.

That's his job.

Sorry, I don't think that every comment that he makes to his caddie is intended as a complaint about the caddie.

Totally agree.  It's the type of relationship they have.  All caddies have different jobs.  Some read putts, some help with club selection, some are "yes men" and some are just sounding boards.  It works for them.  So what.

We don't have to like the way he talks, because he DOES sound like a whiny little you-know-what a lot of the time, but it's pretty clear that it's not DIRECTED at the caddie.

It would be amazing if Steve Stricker wins the PGA after being named Ryder Cup co-captain. I don't think he could do it, but I am certainly rooting for him.

It would be more amazing him winning the PGA with a torn labrum.

I think scoring a little tough this morning with the rain. Nobody going super low...a few strong rounds out there (like Stricker) but not a lot. If it dries out later, guys this afternoon could have a field day.

Hopefully he can get it it 9 or 10 under.

Really hope he goes on a tear over the next few years

Imagine if Rory stays on a tear and we get the Tiger from 2005 and 2006 back? Golf would be the best it ever was. Unfortunately, I don't see Tiger getting that form back.

I wouldn't mind if Rory wins again but I can't handle him running away with this one. Golf needs a good finish here on Sunday.

I'd still call that a good finish. YMMV

    • Much appreciated. Doing the list the way you did is perfectly fine, just add the link to the post next time 
    • The younger generation equivalent of this is probably 15 signs you watch too much golf on Instagram/TikTok, but it kind of doesn't make sense because the videos are so short.
    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
