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

    • Last Monday I experienced a very slow front 9, taking at least 2 1/2 hours. 3 riders and 1 walking, and we, a twosome, waited at every shot, except the tee, where they all teed off before we could get close enough to ask to play through. The walker wasn't very good, often hitting his drive 100-150 yards. They all played from the blues, and the walker would tee off last. The riders would take off, often leaving the walker behind to fend for himself. Finally, after a couple of holes, one of the carts would hang back, help look for a ball, etc. When they reached the green, the walker would often park his clubs on the wrong side, and after holing out, would retrieve his clubs and have to walk back across the green to get to the next tee. Did I mention the walker also moved in slow motion? Conserving energy, maybe? At the 10th, a par 5, while we're waiting to take our approach shots to the green, the walker holes out, shake hands, and heads back to the clubhouse. After that, we never came close to catching them again. Finished in 4 hours total.  
    • I break 90 now and then, and I think I am starting to notice the commonalities. 1. Don't go OB.  Just don't.  If it's a reasonable likelihood, think about club choice.  I often play a 310 yard hole with OB all the way down the right, and it's the first hole.  It's also a little downhill.  A bad 5 wood gets me within a 9 iron or less, a good one a sand wedge, or even lob wedge.  I don't need driver on that hole.  Without the OB, I think I'd play driver, but first tee, there's just no real benefit. 2.  When driver is the club, hit it.  Closer is better.  But see #1. 3.  Get out of the sand in one.  To anywhere.  Green is better, out is critical. 4.  If I'm within 10 feet of the green, I need to be thinking up and down.  Won't always happen, but those are important shots.  And where I get a lot of my pars, "almost" GIRs. 5.  I agree with not trying the hero shot, but not wimping out, either.  Know what you can do, and go for it. 6.  Three putts are bad, but don't beat yourself up over a three putt from 50 feet.  (Actually don't beat yourself up over anything, let it go, and move on.) 7.  I have found in my best rounds, I block out a lot of the noise.  Take a breath before each shot.  Focus.  Not every second, but in the time around the shots. 8.  If something feels wrong, back off.  The grass grabs on the backswing, stop!  It should not happen a lot, but once your head is unhappy, bad things are in store. 9.  Be aggressive, but not stupid.  If you can carry 220 on your best shot, and you need 210, don't do it.  I think you need to have a 80 or maybe even 90 percent probability of success.  The two shots that failure is likely to cause eat into your margin pretty quickly.      
    • Nope. That is troll-level phrasing there.
    • Touche.  On the "no" voter thing.  But like I said... feeding the sharks.  I'm trying to find a middle ground for you guys but it seems like human lives come in second place to your need for total accuracy and fear of inconvenience.
