Hope Billy can hang in there tomorrow. Should be fun to watch!

Either of them wins, it's worth $11.4 million.

I could live on that for awhile......

Ditto...would like to see Rickie move a couple of spots too..... :beer:

Any chance one of the American Ryder Cup team members discovers an undiagnosed rotator cuff injury in the next week?

Credit where it's due, you come up with more creative ways to bash Tom Watson than anyone else I can think of. At least you've got that going for you.....

Rooting really hard for Jim Furyk to get it done tomorrow. Don't see it happening, but that would be cool. I think Horschel looks good and will win again.

If he buys a new $50 putter, he might do it.

Rory has to win this...otherwise being Rory isn't what it's cracked up to be. Speaking of Rory not being Tiger, I find it interesting that this thread--the Tour Championship--has about a third the number of posts as the thread about some event Joost Luiten is playing in.

Rory's results this year means he is what he's cracked up to be.

The Luiten thread is being kept alive by two users and the Tour Championship has never been that big of an attraction.

Talk about clutching at straws, reducing the assessment a 25 year old multiple major winner's career down to a single round. You couldn't make it up. Its not that long ago that some were clinging to the "fact" that he couldn't contend in tournaments unless he had his A game, and now that he has shown that he can grind out good scores despite not being anywhere near top form we now move on to the next course in a moveable feast of criteria by which he should be judged. I'm sure that if he wins today you'll have a new yardstick of greatness ready by this evening.

Good money, if you can get it... :bugout:

Billy has a growing family...

I perceive a lack of interest in this Tour Championship ... lack of 2 of the biggest names over last 17 years? Not the best quality of golf? Ogilvie is  only +29 or so at the moment.

I think the playoff grind has taken its mental toll.

They may want to rethink this system. Embrace change.

Disagree, at least WRT Rory's performance in the playoffs.  He's been in contention in the last two events.  Four putts, three putts, missed opportunities to take control--not what I'm looking for in the next coming of the GOAT.  If he fails to close today, tied for the lead and playing in the final group with the cup on the line, then I'll be very disappointed.  That's just me.

And the Tour Championship should be drawing more discussion than the Dutch Masters, is all I was saying.

Wow.  You've reacted strongly to and inferred much from my post.  Maybe the straws are in the other hand?

I'm not looking for a new Tiger, I'm just looking to see what Rory can do.

And I won't be judging Rory's career based on a few tournaments and rounds. Every great golfer has had good and bad periods.

Og and btw:

Surprised this thread doesn't have more interest, although we haven't got to the last round yet. $10 million prize money, McIlroy joint leader going into the final round, what isn't interesting about today

The NFL is on....

    • This comment makes me think of Mid South #2. 😉 I assume you remember driving the green in fourball at 2017 Newport Cup.  Pretty sure that was a longer carry than this one lol. 
    • Just got home from Wisconsin.   Again, thank you @cipher and @iacas for setting this up and running this trip. I had a fantastic time and it was great to see most of you again and to meet some of you for the first time. The courses were amazing, and we could not have ask for better weather. The most rain we got was a few sprinkles today for like 3 minutes. 
    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
