The good news is Tiger's moved up 4 spots today. Another 40 and we just may see him the weekend.

I think the afternoon groups can go low. Lead can get to -10.

Going to be tough not being able to play lift, clean and place. I think that's tampering the scoring some. You're going to get some mudballs out there and squishy lies and the ball's not to travel as good with wet ground. That being said, I think a few guys will go low.

Yeah, not everyone will go low but a few of the top guys and ...suddenly it can be -10. I hate hitting the mud ball especially when the mud is on the side where the club face will hit it. Squishhhh. Plus dry cleaning bill.

Old man Vijay -4 today...Kenny Perry -3..

The course is incredibly slow.

Stricker also -3 today. The three old guys rule. Tom Watson needs to join them!

He's definitely limping a bit on the back 9.......missed four straight greens with an iron in his hand. I think the wet ground is giving him some issues. Everything's going short. Good news is he's saved 3 of those 4 that he missed the green.

Wasn't Bubba at 5 under at one point today? Shot himself out of this tourney with a poor attitude.

No, at no point was Bubba 5 under in this tournament.

Rory McIlroy can play mediocrely all back nine and just stuff it on a par 5 and have a two shot lead, jeez.

    • 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.
    • Have you ever gotten a club fitting? I also launch the ball lower than ideal and part of that is my swing, part of that was the shaft I was playing. I wonder if changing to a higher lofted driver will cause you to hit the ball with more spin and you wouldn't see any gains in distance.
