2014 Barclays Discussion Thread

Can Rory make it four big wins in a row? This is surprisingly a tournament that Tiger Woods has never won, so maybe that will crack down on Tiger footage....probably not. (Vijay has won it four times)

Tee Times right here.

Will be interesting to see if Rory has the motivation this week like he's had the last few tournaments. My guess is he may save his best for the Ryder Cup and TOUR Championship. No matter how he does these first few FedEx events, he will win the FedEx Cup if he wins at East Lake.

Played there in June and attended the Barclay's the last time it was at Ridgewood and was going to go again this week, but decided to go downashore tomorrow for a long weekend. Great spot to watch golf. I highly recommend it if anybody is thinking of going.

Down the shore? Which beach? I go to Ocean City, NJ and play at Shoregate when I am "down the shore". Played three rounds there last week. Tough course.

(lol, I can picture some people scratching their heads at the expression "down the shore")

All I know is that "shore" combined with "Jersey" makes me angry.

I never saw the show you are no doubt referencing, but that is a completely different type of beach community than the one I frequent. Different as night and day.

haha, thank god.

Rory currently at 3 over after going double bogey than bogey. Last place atm.

Cameron Tringale with some good karma as he's having a nice round at 3 under and tied for the lead with 6 holes to play.

Ouch, Rory bogeys ANOTHER. Bad putt. This game is so strange isn't it. One day you're firing on all cylinders and the next you're struggling to put up a respectable round.

Rory is just off today. He has to be a bit exhausted from all the appearances (off the golf course) lately.

I would love for Rickie to win the Fed Ex Cup. Playing well again at the moment.

I'd just like to see Ricky win at least one tournament.  Great year

Adam Scott always in the mix every single time - he's a real contender too

Jimmy Walker looks like Kevin Spacey

Rory finally gets a birdie.

I'm curious as to what the 2nd featured group will be.

I'd imagine it will be the Kuchar, Furyk, and Sergio group.

It is Ernie Els, Jeff Ogilvy, and Jonas Blixt.

The sound engineer must have had the mix set up for Bob Slurm.

    • The course with my absolute favorite greens is Eaton Country Club which, despite the name, is far cheaper golf than most courses. A membership is something around $100 a month with no initiation fee or food requirement if I remember correctly. Play golf once a week and you're paying only $25 a round with cart for 18 holes, which is a far better deal than any other course in the area (the 9 hole course I work at is the cheapest in my city at $25 for 9 holes with cart). The greens at this course stimp between 11 and 12 on a daily basis and are the smoothest that I've ever set foot on. Their maintenance crew is fantastic about fixing every little imperfection in the greens. They go over them with a fine-toothed comb every evening to fix anything on the green.  I know there must be some kind of limit to how much play a green like this could sustain, but the course has looked this way every time I've played it (including weekends, weekdays, and such). It's not an enormously busy golf course though, and I don't think it would work on the courses that regularly see 200 or more golfers. I would be willing to bet good money though that, given equal traffic, good maintenance will definitely produce a much higher quality putting surface. The course I used to work for had two people assigned to fix ball marks on the course once a week, both of which had issues with their backs that made bending over for any extended period of time uncomfortable. The greens at that course clearly showed it, with unfixed or only partially fixed ball marks marring every putting surface. The course I currently work at has a maintenance crew that fixes marks whenever they're out to water as well as marshalls that are assigned a couple of holes to maintain during their shifts and I notice that the greens here have many fewer ball marks across the greens. The maintenance crew is also diligent when it comes to regularly verticutting, needle-tining, etc. all of the greens to ensure that they're in top shape. They water the greens up to four times a day depending on the weather conditions as compared to the old course only watering in the evenings and sometimes mornings to save money. As a result the greens at my current course are much more lush and smooth than those at the course I used to work and play at, and I know the difference is the care and attention to the maintenance of the greens (they have similar player traffic).
    • To clarify, I have a push cart. I don't have an umbrella, yet. That probably would have done loads of good keeping the sun from beating down on me. I've got one picked out, but just haven't pulled the trigger yet.  Shooting an 86 was a "decent" to "good" round for me. I felt like I played well. My ball striking was above average today. I had 7 GIR and 7 nGIR. I had 37 putts today, which was my score killer. Oddly enough, most of my 3 putts were on my GIRs! I say this because in the super heat I would think that ball striking would be the first to go, but it didn't for me. Putting was mainly because I'm still working on breaking old habits I had with my old putter and moving to my new putter. Lines were always spot on but I would go back to "popping" the ball like I did with my old putter and would lose it way past the hole.  Definitely need to pick up that umbrella. I imagine that would help a ton. I'm 28 years old and in pretty darn good health/shape and I would have probably died had I actually carried my bag today... lol. Even my lighter "carry" bag.
    • For irons, last year at a Titleist fitting they said I should get the AP1's with the XP 90 gram shaft with a +1/2.  This year I did another free open fitting and they said they wouldn't need to adjust the shaft but I don't remember what shaft they recommended.  Just got fit for a driver last Thursday but i don't think that helps. Scheduled a fitting for Saturday afternoon but who knows if the clubs will still be available then. 
    • I would say nicer golf courses tend to have better greens because of the money it takes to maintain them.  I would say that greens that can routinely hold up to being cut short probably have a healthier denser grass with stronger root systems that allow it to resist damage from pitch marks. I've played on course in Dayton where a pitch mark will just tear up the green versus another course where it just leaves a slight indentation. 
    • Give that man an icy cold beer, stat! I'm relatively young, and I'd take the cart for the breeze between shots and holes as well as the portable shade. What's the point in suffering unless you are practicing for competition in similar conditions? For anyone, I think the physical metabolic toll of moving all that water through to stay cool would tend to lower scores. But you do get longer drives than typical playing conditions, and you may feel extra limber. Older folks face potential heat stroke risk, because they aren't as efficient with heat regulation as a healthy adult. If you are healthy and that's your only day free to play, why not.
