58 posts in this topic

Reminder! This is a Friday-Monday event.

Henrik Stenson is the defending champ and Rory won it the year prior.

WHEN/WHERE: Friday-Monday, TPC Boston in Norton, Mass.

AT STAKE: $1,440,000 first prize in $8 million total purse

SHORT SHOTS: Of the 100 players who qualified for the field, four will not play: Justin Rose, Paul Casey, Jason Dufner and Graeme McDowell – the latter taking paternity leave. … Phil Mickelson will play alongside Justin Hicks and Ryo Ishikawa late Friday and early Saturday.  Last week's winner, Mahan, has just one top-10 finish in 12 Deutsche Bank starts.

Originally designed by Arnold Palmer and built in 2003, TPC Boston was re-designed by Gil Hanse and PGA Tour player Brad Faxon .

Here's last years round 4 recap.

damitall - I went to look at the leaderboard and quickly realized it was Fri-Mon week on the PGA tour.

Oh well more time to work today, I guess.

I was thoroughly confused when looking at the leaderboard. I checked like 16 times.

I think he looks a bit like Foghorn Leghorn.

Yeah, he's OK at golf...

Right? He couldn't even get those iron shots in the hole, and what was up with that long putt? I mean he's a professional golfer and he can't even get his approach closer than 40 feet? I'm going to watch someone else with more star power ;-)

I have 21 "favorites on the PGA Tour" app playing this week. Only one cracked the top twenty-five: Seung Yul Oh No. Considering there is only 100 players in the field, there was a 21% chance of one of my "favorites" winning. SYON, Kevin Spacey, and Geogilvy were the only ones to crack par. It was a tough friday..LOL.

    • 1. I remark on PP's good shots, and stay quiet on the bad ones. I don't say "good shot" just because I hear good contact ( the ball may be 40 yards off target). 2. I use my PP's names regularly (especially if just-met)...Dale Carnegie training 'the one sound each and every person loves is the sound of their name" 3. Mark someone's ball, replace a divot, rake a bunker (esp if he's thinned it over the green) 
    • Phil had diarhia  of the mouth yesterday, giving a reason for the poor play of he and tiger in 2004 RC as not being prepared to play and test Tigers golf ball that is "higher spin" versus his low spin ball.  Plausible only with Phil.  4-5 hours??? Puh-lease. I have been involved in 3rd party testing of golf balls and i can actually say that Phil is full of Sh*t here. The overall difference in spin from tour caliber golf balls, rememebr we are going back to to 2004, the diference is insignificant off the driver, from eight iron on down to wedges the spin characteriscs averge out  from one one spinny tour ball to and the next low spin tour ball is less than 5%. in other words a 5000 RPM wedge shot with the higher spin ball would be 4750 RPM at the worst case scenario.  Remember these are 20o3-04 golf balls, the TA and PV1 are just a couple of years old at this point. Phil likes to talk, I get that, I like the guy, but please just shut up about ball spin and admit you ( and tiger) played badly, too much limelight for both is much more plausible. Two thumbs up for Hal  Suttons response too.   In alternate shot, you play with one ball, and that was the issue, Mickelson said. "[Woods] found out the year before when we played at the Presidents Cup in 2003 that the golf ball I was playing was not going to work for him," Mickelson said. "He plays a very high-spin ball and I play a very low-spin ball, and we had to come up in two days with a solution. "So I grabbed a couple dozen of his balls, I went off to the side, and tried to learn his golf ball in a four- or five-hour session on kind of an isolated -- one of the other holes out there trying to find out how far the ball goes. And it forced me to stop my preparation for the tournament, to stop chipping and stop putting and stop sharpening my game and stop learning the golf course, in an effort to crash-course and learn a whole different golf ball that we were going to be playing. "In the history of my career, I have never ball-tested two days prior to a major. I've never done it. It doesn't allow me to play my best. What allows me to play my best is to learn the course, sharpen my touch on the greens, sharpen my chipping out of the rough and ball striking and so forth. "Instead, I'm taking four or five hours and I'm out trying to learn another ball to allow us to play our best. Had we known a month in advance, we might have been able to make it work. I think we probably would have made it work. But we didn't know until two days prior."
    • I played baseball at a big 10 university for 4 years, tennis for 40 years, and learned to play golf at a very young age but did not play frequently in my younger years.  Accordingly, I am athletic and have a decent game for my age group now.  Extremely accurate but not long by any stretch.  When I was 60, I started to take golf seriously (Like most people getting close to retirement age) and really can't complain about my game.  The one thing that took me forever to learn and understand is:  "Feel is NOT real."  What you THINK you are doing is NOT really what you are doing.  So......I would advise any player who wants to improve their game to, have some video taken of your swing and watch it.  You will be amazed.  Your swing will be NOTHING like you think it is.  (LOL) 
    • That's great! Is your season ending too? I'm going to be sad to see it end.   Thanks, everyone! He played well yesterday (tied for 2nd out of 21 players) and today he's playing 2 hours away at the "hardest course in our state", according to his coach. Yikes! 
      After today, he will be practicing for the championship. We're going to go play the course on Sunday. (By we, I mean him and his teammate - with me driving the cart.) ;)
      The tournament is Thursday, so we have a week to get ready. 
      Here's a nice hit from yesterday.
