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

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?


Happened on the first hole this morning.

He hit approach shot left on hillside and slipped and fell on his butt.

He then shook his hand like he scraped it or landed on something sharp.

Oh wow, medical attention required. I hope he is alright.

I know he's been battling vertigo and dizziness spells recently. They aren't looking at his knees, so that's good.

Louis Oosthuizen might make the cut after a +7 start with the Fowler/Woods group.

He is -4 today (all on his back 9), at +3 overall, which is likely going to be good enough to play the weekend.  Just needs to finish out strong.

Many are going to disagree with me on this, but majors don't feel like majors with Tiger missing from the weekend...maybe I should get used to it though


Yeah...I think this is one of the big problems with golf at this exact moment.  Nobody wants to admit it, or get used to it....But right now Tiger is just another golfer...actually another below average golfer...I think people need to start looking at the younger rising stars of the game right now....If tiger ever gets some kind of form back then great.  But as much as everyone wants him to be the face of the game, frankly right now he is a bad pro golfer....

Let's hope it's exhaustion for Day, and nothing more serious. Maybe get some fluids in him after the round, and check into the hotel early. He'll have a late tee time tomorrow, so he'll have plenty of time to gauge his fitness. Inevitably, there will be comparisons to Ken Venturi at the '64 Open.

What happened with Day?

Also a nice crack from Butch on Sky: "Would you change anything about Jordan?" "Maybe the route he takes to the bank each week so he doesn't get robbed."

    • Texas scramble... hell.  Golf messes up your head.
    • It means that you play too many reverse Texas scrambles and they are messing up your head. 
    • I followed your advice, @iacas, and took a lesson with a different instructor. He pointed out how much steeper my downswing was than my backswing, and how much lateral motion I exhibited. He attributed this to an overextended back that twisted, rather than turned, through the swing. This all made sense to me, but I am skeptical of his proposed solution: to keep my body weight over my legs by standing closer to the ball, arching my thoracic spine (instead of maintaining a flat spine as I had been previously taught), and having what feels like an extremely flat swing plane. I did nothing but top and hook the ball when I tried to follow his instruction. He did send me home with two annotated videos summarizing our lesson, which was an excellent touch I think all instructors should adopt. I’ve attached two stills from these movies comparing my current swing (left) and my attempt to implement the lesson (right) at P4. I went back to the range this morning with the intent of working on this new technique, but upon reviewing the video I am still swinging my old swing with a few small modifications inspired by the lesson—my swing plane is slightly flatter, and I’m standing closer to the ball with a natural spine curve. Unfortunately I’m still coming OTT and sending the ball 20 yards left or right of my target. Here’s a video of one of my best swings, in which the steep attack is still evident:   
    • Day 425 - February 26, 2021 About 63 minutes. Wasn't going great early, or in the middle much, but I turned it around at the end. Stayed "into" the right hip, which kept my levels good, and felt a shorter arm motion.
