RE: Reed. I told the people that I was watching with that he was stooooopid for running on the bridge like that -  possibly losing millions if he has to w/d in the future with an re-injury.


I felt bad for the bridge.

(I like it when the players have fun.  What are they supposed to do?  live in a cave and only come out to play cautious golf?)

Last time Rory and Phil played together in a major? 72nd hole at Valhalla. :)

Put Rickie in that bunch and get the whole band back together! I don't think you'd get many complaints.

I think the focus on Rory and his chance at the “Rory-Slam” or whatever they are calling it has motivated The Tiger to step it up.

It may have flipped the circuit breaker in Tiger’s head to the ON position.

Go Tiger.

They're calling it the same thing they've always called it ... the career Grand Slam. ;)

Now, if he wins this Masters, then they will be going bonkers leading up to the US Open and I'm sure they will be calling that the "Rory Slam," just as they called Tiger's 4 consecutive the "Tiger Slam."

And I hope you're right about Tiger - I so want to see him do well.  And Rory, and DJ, and JD, and Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth.  And a bunch of others.  (But mostly Tiger) ;)

That Spieth, Stenson, and Horschel group should be fun to watch too. Gotta think two or maybe all three of those guys could be in the mix.

Tiger in the par-3 contest. Tiger returning for the Masters. I'm like a kid and it's the day before Christmas. Or the day before Christmas Eve. Whenever the day that I get my first present tomorrow is.

What are the odds Reed gives Poults the 'shoosh' motion during the round?

And the intensity will be high.  (I think these 3 all are very friendly too, so I expect very animated and competitive)

You guys are all wrong.  He was actually listening to his Rosetta Stone Spanish "tapes."

"El gato es muy grande."

"Donde esta la biblioteca."

Close. It was Portugese he's trying to bone up on for the Olympics.

Or maybe he's trying to get Portugese citizenship to qualify more easily, haha

    • Hoping there are a few people here who are using Game Golf Live, and can advise, as I was getting well frustrated on the course yesterday.  I am still fairly new to using Game Golf, got it gifted 6 months ago, but only now been playing with it Anyway, on the course yesterday, just could not get it to work stable.  Switched on the Game GPS Unit, it started flashing, then bleeped, white light flashing then paired it with the game golf app on the phone.  It showed my location, so thought off we go .... tag'd my first club the GPS Puck, flashed and vibrated, briefly saw the app show 1 shot, before it went back to 0 ..... took my shot anyway, go to the next shot, again, showed my location, tag'd my club, again same vibrate .. but still no register showing on the phone.  Checked the GPS unit, their seemed to be no lights on, however, it was still registering my location At this point, I ended the round, quit the app, switched off the puck, and then tried to reconnect it all again .... it seemed to go through the same as above ... at this point, got annoyed and switched it off for the round, as it was to distracting So, just wondered, what process / order do people use to get their Game Golf connected correctly.  Do you switch on the puck first, the app .. .what order is this done in
    • So, yesterday I played my par-3s in even, par-5s in one under, and averaged 4.5 on par-4s ... and no sixes.  Anywhere.  Or worse.  First time I've done that. Check it out, my scorecard from yesterday (Nov 16, 2019). f   This was from the blue tees at Encino golf course in L.A..  The second line is where I put notes for later:  G (GIR) or N (near-GIR).  I on occasion make other notations (S: I hit sand, A: got to the green as planned but not in either category;  F: messed up the hole)  I don't do this during tournaments of course.  Just saying it here because it's in the picture. In case the challenge has any such restrictions, I played blue tees which are 70.1 / 114 / 6574 yards.  No mulligans, played with friends in a skins/modified fourball type casual round.  I did accept a few very short conceded putts (none over about a foot).  I believe it qualifies for the challenge.   And I was fully aware of where I stood, score-wise and challenge wise, when I hit my second shot at #16.  So I played the last 11 strokes knowing I had a good round going and a chance to finish the "no sixes" challenge, with a par-5 waiting for me at the end.  I hit a good drive, a great 4-wood, and pitched on from 75 yards with a 9-iron (half swing).  Almost made the putt for a 75 too   76 beats my previous best score of all time by one (that 77 had two sixes on it... but also three birdies).  I get the feeling I'll have a bunch more good scores if I can produce more "no sixes" scorecards  
    • Day 9.  Hit balls for ten minutes indoors, off a mat, into a net.  6-iron.  Focused on completing the backswing.  Balls were plastic.
    • My best shot of the week was hitting a 240yd drive on a par 5 hole twice! No winter roll, no downhill/wind, no cartpath. Just hit it perfectly with a slight draw to the middle of the fairway - ended up with a birdie on that hole both times!
    • Mayakoba Update: Actual events have me standing corrected on the imagined alternative finish as suggested in the preceding post. The reduced field of the alternative scenario most definitely would have finished the 3rd and 4th rounds in one day -- a most important thing to know, if -ANY- type of change is to be made to the actual Low-65 cut rules.
