Ugh...and some people want to call this a major?

Don't forget the names of people like Andy North, Steve Jones, Lucas Glover, Todd Hamilton, Ben Curtis, Shaun Micheel, Rich Beem, Trevor Immelman, to name a few.

And those aren't just names on the leaderboard of all of the other majors in years past ... those are all winners .  Don't lose perspective and put those tournaments up on a pedestal as if they are always star-studded events.

Are you saying that the likes of:

Na, Grace, Hearn, Merritt and Stroud don't move the needle for you??

Na is the most interesting guy in this list.  Others are shrouded in mystery, has no merit, can't earn a win even if he tried for the grace of god.    (Sorry)

Do we need a separate thread to reminisce about how great Tiger used to be?

Then we can keep all this crap out of the weekly tournament threads.

BTW - the next major that Tiger wins will be like Jacks win at Augusta in '86, all about nostalgia and how great things used to be.

Now back to The Players Championship - shaping up to be a great weekend.

Local player from mid-michigan, Brian Stuard won't be playing on the weekend as he put 3 into the water on the back 9 today.

I wonder which player sent the most into the drink over Thur/Fri. Someone hit 2 into it on 17 yesterday.

I stated in the other thread that the Players does have a nice champions list (despite Perks and a couple others) and probably will continue to after this year as I expect Rory to eventually charge ahead and take this thing. But in the past (and so far this year), it doesn't create the greatest leaderboards. What we have this year is pretty common of the Players many years. The one thing I will say for the other majors is despite getting a no-name here or there, the last few years they've had a lot of impressive leaderboards. I know the streak is overdue to come to an end, but over the last few years if you look back at all 4 majors, it's been nothing but big names garnered at the top.

Golf is hard.

I like Na, he's a solid player, the board may look very different come Sunday but I can see him hanging around.

I will say this though ... even though I think the guys on TGC and the guy who started the thread here made great points justifying it ... I'm finding that yesterday and today, my interest in watching is fairly low.  Not totally sure why ... but I guess I don't mind it not being a major if I don't even really care that much about it. ;)

Rickie Fowler, bruh.

Every friggin' time I think he's on a roll...he puts one in the drink.

F*ck it, if Rory doesn't win, I want it to be Jerry Kelly.

Imagine if Rory were to win this. That would make him the Open Champion, WGC-Bridgestone champion, PGA Champion, World Match Play champion and Players champion. Now I know he's no Tiger Woods, but at the same time...damn..... that would be mighty impressive.

    • Hey folks I run a golf group that needs a new name.  I want to expand it to other markets, but our old name is trademarked and the guy who owns the trademark won't budge on it.   We started as Winnipeg Beginner Golf - this scared away more experienced golfers and scared courses when we booked tee times Then we became Winnipeg Not So Pro Golf - Great name but trademarked apparently Now we want to start doing tournaments and so need a new name.  We have settled on Shoot for Par as the first part but need to know if its worth adding something on the back end like am golf tour or otherwise.   Mediocre Golf Association beat me to it with a great name so here we are.  Here's our mission what would you call the organization if it used the words Shoot For Par in the title.   Our mission is to provide tournament & casual round experiences for amateur golfers of all genders and ability levels, guided by a commitment to giving back to the community, building camaraderie and encouraging lifelong health and wellness.
