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

Yeah, I uploaded the FoxSports Go App. I'm hoping that works like the Watch ESPN App. Guess we'll see come Thursday.

I agree with this. I can't understand why they are complaining. Everyone is playing the same course. Deal with it. You are suppose to be professionals not whiny little kids.

Greens already stressed and the poa annua will only make them bouncy as the day goes on. Can't imagine what they will be like next Sunday.

And what's up with two holes being interchangeable between a par 4 and a par 5 and players not knowing what they will be until they get there each day? If Mike Davis has already stated that 3 practice rounds isn't enough to prepare, why make it even more perplexing?

Uh oh!  Sounds like another Merion disaster in the making.

I think it could be more like Shinnecock than Merion. Given the weather forecast, I think you're going to see them water them pretty heavily tonight. The good news is it's supposed to cool down and that will help keep the greens from baking out.

If you're rooting for Phil Mickelson, I think the most positive sign is the fact this course will resemble Muirfield 2013 a lot. Looks just as brown and fast.

According to some they are because they are so short and small. I personally like both of them. Merion played soft in '13 whereas Shinnecock and Chambers Bay will play hard and fast.

I hope that's not Tiger's new swing. Looks worse than some of the hackers' swing. Just saying.

Just did the fly by on youtube for Chambers Bay.

This course will kill some guys.

Winning score;- level par or worse.

I like what Jordan Spieth said about the negative comments on the course. "Those that are saying bad things about the course probably aren't going to be a factor this week." From what I've heard, Jordan and Phil seem to be taking the most positive approach so far in talking about CB.

"Follow the dots: It's impossible to tell where the fairways end and the greens begin so the USGA has painted little white dots as the demarcation. That way, players know when they can pick up and mark their ball."

From recent pix, looks like the fairways are brown, hope not the greens too.

From what I've seen, it looks a lot like Muirfield did in 2013. Brown is usually good on links courses. Not sure if this is considered a "true links course" though. But a lot of similarities with how the greens and fairways look.

I'm super stoked about this course it looks beautiful would love to play it. I wonder if any inclement weather is scheduled to be in the area during the weekend. Some stiff winds could really make this challenging or should I say more challenging.

    • Great fact based no BS commentary. Sounds like she filtered out a series of different and significant injuries. He was well above average fit and hopefully will recover and return to a normal life.
    • Thanks for your story. Seems like a realistic timeframe for me, too - as I read that in other posts as well. Maybe I am too optimistic to achieve that in only one year. I see. That's another factor which I will have to face. I broke 90 on my home course. I will probably get a reality check after I play more on other, perhaps more difficult courses. Thanks for your input! That is very interesting. I like the breakdown of what worked for you. My coach and I are working on a playbook for me and have set out specific goals to shave off strokes in particular areas of my weakness. Thanks for sharing your story.
    • I am just over 40 and I used to be quite athletic (2nd league pro in another sport). Besides my humble brag here, I feel the athletic stance and have the 4-5 hour cardio and mental focus - however my putting and driver technique cause me at around 10 extra strokes together. Yeah, I basically break 90 now: - OB driver shots, and barely over 200 yards - Above average iron shots (short and long) - making up for my driver; quite accurate and distances are by the book - 3-4 putts (messing up my score)
    • Thank you for the stats chart, that's worth gold! Yes, I have a golf coach and I keep a hand-written log in my scorebook. I am embarrassingly bad at putting (3-4) and my driver shot is not accurate and the distance is well below my age. However, my iron game is above average in terms of full swing mechanics, distance and accuracy - that was pretty much the only thing I practiced until I met my coach. The goal is to reduce by 5 putts in the short term. Thank you for your feedback. Yeah, Iooks like if I improve my putting and driving (among other aspects) to the same level as my iron skills I could be a more consistent 90s player. Come on! The putting struggle is real and tracked in my book.
    • Good luck! Let's ping each other by the end of the year again. I see that you that you also worked on your putting and short game. Good to have stretch-goals.  My golf coach guides me. Before I met him I practiced my iron game so much and completely neglected putting over that period. Genuinely, my iron game is quite accurate and the iron (short, long) distances I shoot are above average. However, I often end up doing 3-4 putts and my driver shot goes barely over 200 yards and is not accurate either. If I can shave some off those putts that could be 5-7 strokes right there.
