Jason Day holes out from 60 yards for birdie, that was impressive.

Wow.  And I was about to include a quote above in my carnage post when they caught Jason saying "That is a joke" as he watched his bunker shot roll down the hill 60 yards! Worked out ok for him, so it's not exactly carnage.

Note to Jason, don't hit it in the bunker and don't catch your bunker shot slightly thin.

I was there the last two days off of 10 and 1 grandstands.  A lot of good shots into 10, but everybody is leaving putts short.  I just wanted to yell down to phil to not leave it short, and what did he do? He left it short.  I shoulda yelled. haha!  Was fun, I could see Tiger on the range from the top of 1 grandstands (like half a mile away or so) with binoculars.  He looked great there at least.  There's lots of potential to play well there, just got to play those breaks correctly on the approach shots.  But the greens are certainly slower than expected to players it seems. I'm excited to see how D. Johnson will do today!

OK, the entire last half hour on both the USGA stream and Fox broadcast has been "talking faces"

What the heck, "There's a US OPEN" being played :pound:

Ball wobbles on perfectly great looking greens

But brown coloured grass makes it wobble more! :-P

Star power at the top is losing its luster. Getting the David summerhays, Branden Grace's, joist lootens and Ben Martins moving up to the top

Anyone see that grimace from Tiger after his nice approach?  He was removing his glove gingerly to reveal a bandage on his left index finger. Have they mentioned an injured finger?

Blood blister from Memorial? An example of bumpy greens? https://vine.co/v/eiiZ2EZLduQ

Wouldn't surprise me if he hurt something on his hand on the shot he lost/threw his club on yesterday.  Slow motion looked brutal on the club as well as the hands.  Plus he was hitting out of the junk all day.

Don't be hating on the Clemson/Greenville boy haha.  He's a solid player.

It's crazy how he has improved.  He was never a really good junior golfer (as in not one of the top 5 in the state), and only started being recruited by Clemson late in his HS career.  Then at Clemson he wasn't a guy expected to play much early on, but continued to improve.  One of his strengths is that he misses small.

Not sure if this was posted yet, but it's a great post anyway.

"But by the time his work was done for the day,(Bubba) Watson didn't want to talk about it. He declined a pooled request for a post-round interview, though later told the Associated Press: "We've been waiting all day. I just hit a bad shot. I'm not going to pout. We've all seen articles written about me that I'm a pouter. It's nothing new.""

Just the fact he openly admits that he is a pouter makes me laugh!  Now I just need to find a quote from Poulter...

    • The Footjoy rain pants are huge. Not a good fit in my opinion. 
    • The 80 I shot a few months ago has been knocked off my card, and my handicap currently sits at 16.3. However, my round from today (score post in a little bit) knocked the next-lowest round, 83, off as well, so it will probably skyrocket when I get my update tomorrow. Stay tuned.
    • Swing looks great.
    • Haven’t practiced in a while. Got into a little bit of a funk there. Been playing poorly lately; was going to pack away the clubs for the winter but I committed to an outing for some reason so I’m going to make the best of it 😃 First swings weren’t great. Might have figured out the main issue, though. Backswing stuff, inconsistent club head position at transition. Leads to lots of randomness. Started rehearsing A4 and then slowly bringing the club back to the same position, feeling that I’m set there (kind of a pause or slight delay), and then firing hard.   I posted the swings at real speed because I wanted to see the backswing at real speed. Feels slow to me but isn’t, and I’m not surprised there’s no actual pause at transition. Hit the ball really well like this though, which is promising.
    • Played 18 yesterday. Didn't score well due to some lapses in my priority piece on the course and associated penalty strokes. When I executed the swing I worked on in my lesson and recent practice sessions (mainly the takeaway/backswing), the ball was going where I aimed it. Short and mid irons were straight, maybe with a touch of fade or draw to them. Longer clubs were a little bit of a pull-fade flight. Of course, this is n=1 so who knows if this pattern holds over time. My miss was a cut/fade that starts on target, or maybe a bit pushed, and moves moderately to the right, and comes up short of typical distance. This miss is much more playable than the violent hooks, pull hooks, and shanks I was hitting previously. Overall I'm feeling optimistic that I can solidify these changes quickly, and hopefully get some decent rounds in before rainy season. Another thing my teacher asked me to try was not hovering the club at setup. She thinks it can help with my commitment to my target line/setup. I didn't take this advice as something that is right or wrong, but just a new approach to try and see if there is any improvement. I tend get fidgety with my feet when I am hovering the club prior to takeaway and start repositioning my feet and changing my alignment. I tried it in my round yesterday when I remembered it, but reverted back to hovering often.
