I'd like at my take of the event from a spectators point of view. I'm between a 9-12 index depending.... and play about 100 rounds a year. I've been in person to about 15 PGA events. I have never b

Spent yesterday at Chambers Bay. What a fantastic course, just stunning to behold and looks like so much fun to play. I will have to play it in a season or two when I'm ready. I have to say that there

Well, it's been ages since I posted here, former writer at TST. I spent the Tuesday practice round and Thursday at Chambers Bay. It is expansive. Beautiful views of the sound and a golf course that lo

They are up now

What I can't figure out is why there are 6 slots listed at TBD?

I haven't looked to see if all those qualified are listed in tee times, but I thought the only remaining way to qualify is to be in the OWGR top 60 as of Monday (and to have not be previously qualified) or to get a special exemption (which is unlikely, but could be 1 or 2 at the most).

Always love looking at the pairings and finding a trend in them but don't really see any this year. You've got US Open veterans paired in Els, Goosen and Ogilvy but that's about all I see. Nothing crazy or unique.

Yeah, I think they could be waiting til Monday to see the OWGR.

Seems odd that the group which tees off Thurs in the morning, then tees off Friday in the afternoon.  But the group that tees off Thursday afternoon, then tees off Friday morning.  One guy gets a long rest but the other is rushed.

I think it has more to do with weather. In some of these tournaments you get situations where weather can consistently be calm in the morning versus the afternoon. Like at The Player's you see a lot more wind in the afternoon than in the morning, especially when the wind shifts from off the ocean.

I'm pretty sure that's how they always do that. No other way really to guarantee everyone plays both morning and afternoon

They really are the most random pairings I've ever seen.

Poor Webb Simpson paired up with Keegan and Kevin Na....hahahahahahaha.

Maybe that was on purpose for the little jab he made about not coming early to play Chambers. B-)

Decent pairings I guess. Doesnt appear much creativity went into them though. I feel bad for Gunn Yang. Always seems he is getting paired with the biggest names. They should put him with no namers and maybe he won't feel as pressured.

Is Simpson known as a fast player?

Since you asked I decided to do some research and found out that Webb is a slow player as well, lol. Perhaps they wanted to group up all the slow quirky players together.

I would hate to be behind that group. Like 4 old ladies at a weekend muni!

That's the first thought that crossed my mind too.  I sure hope that the committee is ready with their stopwatches. :smartass:

    • The sickest thing of all though, is that in your country, refusal to take  it is seen by many as a requirement to prove allegiance to a cult. Additionally, you have people, as we do here, (and everywhere else) who are just plain and simple morons I was reading a post on Reddit the other where a nurse was encouraging a patient to get vaccinated. She said she wouldn't because the vaccine is made from the foetuses of aborted babies. When told that this was not true, she replied that it was true  - she had researched it. She followed this up by putting in a complaint to the hospital about the nurse, saying that she felt that she had been "judged".
    • What do you guys think about limit hip turn on back swing for greater hip turn down swing? I believe my swing is full hip and shoulder turn on back swing but only get a little bit open hip at impact. any drill to help me achieve this and get more hip turn on down swing? the best I can do at impact.
    • Day 154.  I practiced the "snapping sticks" quarantine drill a bit more today, both with the alignment stick and my 6-iron (I seem to feel it more in my right arm than my left, although once I've gone for 30 seconds, I can start to feel it in my core).  I also hit a dozen full swing shots with my 6-iron (indoors, off a mat, etc), the usual practice routine for them, focusing on takeaway and position at the end of the backswing.
    • I remember reviewing the changes in late 2018 when they were announced, but early 2019 was a stressful and difficult part of my outside-of-golf life, so I didn't get a lot of chance to reinforce it (I also ended up not following through on a golf-related commitment I had hoped to keep during that period, this is definitely my biggest regret from that part of my life).  And my approach to bunkers has long been to just not touch anything (it helps that I'm not in bunkers that much -- something like one shot every other round or so), so the difference hasn't been important to me.
    • I recently joined up here. I posted a short intro if you'd like to know just a little about me.  In my journey with golf, I'm at the stage where I am introducing golf to a 6th grader and 3rd grader. We are starting out with some range time and a couple of rounds on a par 3 course nearby. I'd really like to hear your stories about golfing with kids. My oldest is an over-achiever, she holds herself to very high standards and she's already shown the ability to be frustrated by the game. My youngest is more of a free spirit, and funny enough, you can see it in their swings. My oldest has a conservative "make sure to get contact" swing, and my youngest swings with wild abandon.  If you have advice on club brands or how to set up a bag for kids, especially with how they are growing like weeds, that would be cool too.
