The TNT feed is basically marquee group coverage of Tiger, Phil, and Paddy. Not that I'm complaining.

Yeah odd considering they are far from the lead. They just showed Darren Clarke and he's about 45 shots off. He was better when he was 8000 pounds. I swear I'm not being hyperbolic. OUCH Tiger!

Oh Tiger. Give me a ****ing break.

The announcer said the putt wobbled because of the condition of the green (late on a wet day). Wrong. He needed to hit it inside right and he hit it straight.

Did Jason Day just magically get to -4 or is it just me? Where in the hell did he come from.

Yeah, looked like a pull all the way to me.

My bad, how does it send the ball right?

I'm not an expert on the matter, so I'll let those who know more share their knowledge. It's something that I've practiced before to prevent a hook, however my misses with it were right pushes because I couldn't square the face well enough at impact.

That was just sad.

Just turned it on for the tee shots on this hole.  Tiger appears to be walking very ... upright.

So far so good with the internet feed today.  Yesterday it didn't work at all, but right now it's going great.  Doesn't bode well for my work the rest of the day. ;)

Does the stream have a boss button?

Classic Phil toTiger: Anything you can do I can do worse. Lips out a 3 footer for bogey on what should have been a birdie hole.

I was thinking the same thing, but I don't really know how to put it into words. It's almost as if he's walking with his upper body way more than usual. (If that makes sense, which it might not.) I dunno. It just want him to hit good shots. Not doing a whole lot of that.

Doesn't appear to ... but my internet has a minimize button, and I have no sound, so I should be good. :)

Don't get fired dude. ;)

I'm only kidding bud....his beaver face after each shot is a little odd.

I wish you would not have posted this.  Now it is all I see......

Definitely odd.

They need to give out a trophy for that "Cumulative Majors Championship" that Rickie is currently winning in a landslide.

Or at the very least, he's the no-brainer 4th invitee for the Grand Slam tournament in Hawaii when Rory wins a second major.

    • Recently I have been doing something I haven’t done in a while. Avoiding blow-up rounds. I have been playing the kind of golf I’ve wanted to always play. Boring. Pedestrian. Stay out of the shit, call the zoo kind of rounds. Ho-hum kind of golf. The last round I shot in the 80s was in August and that was an 81. My last five rounds have been 73, 76, 78, 73, 71. The last one was pretty boring. I had back to back bogeys on the 2nd and 3rd holes, then birdied the 5th and 6th (pedestrian birdie at 5, 2 putt at the par 5 after a 3-wood on the green straight into the fan from 235 yards) Nearly drove the 395-yard 6th (relax it was straight downwind and as the crow flies its only 340), got up and down for birdie. Then made 12 boring pars in a row for an even-par 71. 12 GIR, 18 nGiR, putted average. I guess I’ve learned how to be that boring golfer. I’ve been fighting a bit of a hook, so I said, “The hell with it, it’s what I’ve got. I’ll just adjust my target accordingly”. I guess having a one-way miss is a good problem to have.
    • Day 121.  More carpet putting;  ruler, putter, real balls.  Getting some decent speed ones past the 36" marker consistently. 
    • Day 48 - Moved my mat indoors, took some swings working on my new setup. 
    • I have struggled with the flip as well, and similarly have tried many different swing thoughts and drills to fix it with little success. What has worked for me recently though is this: focusing on keeping my right (trail) wrist hinged from the top of my backswing, as long as possible through impact. I have found that the more specific the instruction, the easier it is for me to carry out the action. In this case, the instruction is simple and direct-  keep your right hand bent back as long as possible. When I tried focusing on a more abstract swing thought like "turn your hips" , I've had a much harder time executing the movement. This video from Eric Cogorno really helped hammer in the concept of keeping the trail wrist hinged:    Who knows if this will work the same wonders for you as it has for me, but it could be something worth considering. Good luck!
