I've been watching Tiger's group online because it's interesting and because Rickie is my favorite and who I picked to win (oops!). I don't know if I feel good about the fact that even the pros can look bad or feel bad because as bad as they look, their score would be the round of my life even on a much much much easier course.

Ugh.

I think Tiger is Officially ... lost.  He has no clue where the balls going.

I hope it doesn't take 2 or more years to work it out.

This is like watching real people [hackers] play.

Fixed it for you.

This course is very fun to play. Chambers can be frustrating but if you are hitting your spots it's a real joy. I'm here now and the course looks (and feels) much better in person than on TV.

He should get humble, play 25+ tournaments next year, and fire all coaches if he's still hungry.  If he's not, hang up the spikes, spend some of all that money, and let us enjoy the memories.

Well you have your first outright player complaint of the greens....not surprising its Sergio.

I agree with him completely, but he is still a bitch since everyone else is playing on them.

Monty has been moaning about them on Sky's coverage 4 & 15 are the worst apparently.

Henrik Stenson couldn't help but take a little jab at Tiger Woods

Henrik Stenson with the most trolling quote of the year: "It's a challenging walk. There will be some tired glutes by the end of the week."

Henrik, win a major. Then win 13 more. Sheesh.

    • Lesson 9/25: Some bad things had crept into my swing, and I think I have the tools to fix them. Setup: I was setting up a little to close to the ball. Not sure what precipitated this, but as soon as instructor pointed it out, I stepped back maybe 1/2 to 1 ball and right away addressing the ball felt more comfortable. I've started fidgeting with my right hand grip at setup again, resulting in an overly strong right hand. This seems to happen when I stand over the ball too long, maybe because I am not committed to the swing. Worked on increasing grip pressure with this hand through backswing. I'll need to work on this. Backswing: Need to get a little more depth, but otherwise okay. Might have been I was focusing too much on downswing that I short changed backswing. Nothing major to work on right now. Downswing: Clubhead exit was too much up and out, and not enough left. Worked a bit with a PVC/pool noodle plane thing in front of the ball to get a feel for the clubhead exiting more around and left, and less up, after impact. Might pick up some PVC pipe, elbows, and a tee-fitting at a hardware store, or maybe order a Pure Plane Pro device for this. Everything in the downswing looked pretty good up until club delivery, where I was shoving/flipping my right hand pretty hard. Right before delivery, clubhead was in a good position, but I was still shoving/flipping it closed through impact. Tried out a feel/thought of holding the face open through impact. Initially instructor just had me try to hit the ball with an open face and hit a push-slice way right. Even though it felt like I was leaving the face wide open, the ball was not atrociously offline right. After a few balls of getting used to the concept, I backed off the feel a little bit and was hitting the ball pretty straight. It'll take some work to deprogram my right hand/arm for this one.
    • You are correct, Titleist has really upped the distance on last years TS models and even more so on this years.  The older ones always carried the moniker of being for people who were concerned with shot shaping over distance.  Now a days if you want to sell a driver, distance seems to be the number one concern and it’s good to see Titleist jumping on the bandwagon because they make nice looking driver heads
    • My understanding of "links" is that many people have a different set of criteria. I guess I agree that Chambers Bay and The Kingsley Club are not true links courses. When I hear the term it brings a vision of natural seaside dunes, sandy soil, fast, firm with weather often in play, and options to play the "ground game". Chambers was created by necessity; there is no sea or Great Lake near Kingsley; but both courses offer the same style of play along with most of the other features, and are a blast to play every round.
    • It’s easier to say good morning, tip your hat and keep moving. If they were that so the hole in front sounds like it is there for the taking. (?)
    • You gotta cough, rattle your clubs a bit.  Ask, "Would you be so kind to let me play through?"  Sometimes you have to make it happen.
