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.

Could we declare the Spieth Era over then?

You should be proud regardless. You just used all three forms of the word "to" in a single sentence, and all properly.

not everyone can pull off the hat

I suspect he stopped playing so good....   ; ) On a separate note - I am SO GRATEFUL that the announcers are letting me know that the guys' hits are "golf shots". if they wouldn't say

Well, I can tell you what Rory thinks of this "Spieth era" talk, and instead of using words, he's using actions.

lol we can this weekend. I suspect we will see more of this from him in the coming months. He seems to scramble an awful lot. When he isn't "on" it's a tough way to play golf.

I didn't get to see it, but why did Rory go for the green (he ended up in the water) when he was way right in the rough? Did he have an extremely good lie or something?

Oldass Jerry Kelly! Wow!

Rather not see him in the lead (Na either for that matter)- would rather see a shoot out with the worlds' best and up and comers (McIlroy, Fowler, Stenson). Right now Na, Kelly, Grace, Hearn, Kirk ---and Fowler.....not the greatest leaderboard by any means.....I know, there's a lot of golf left.

Yeah but he's cool as hell dogg. --------- When Ricky Barnes goes from tied for second earlier in the day to missing the cut. :no: :-O

Is there any golfer more frustrating to watch then Rickie Fowler....UGHHHHH YOU COULD BE BRILLIANT!!


No doubt he has a knack for making doubles when he looks to be gaining steam. Especially on Sunday and usually doing something crazy. He's got a little Tin Cup in him.

Yes, but his putter eventually fails him ...

I don't find this tourney particularly interesting for some reason ... though if Fowler would read putts with his feet and not his eyes (as he said on 17), it might prove otherwise. Lots of failures out there. But I don't find US Opens particularly interesting either ... maybe this reminds me of an Open. Lots of fail...

Indeed, moving day tomorrow. I expect Rory to go real low.

I like it and really don't care who is at the top. All these guys are good. But there is kind of a weird vibe today. Lot's of sad-sacks out there after getting beat up. Other than a coupe hot rounds the course is holding it's own. I am not surprised someone like NA is up there with his deliberate style. The hit and chase guys are the ones struggling.

And the difference between Tiger and most of the rest of the crowd. Tiger is at even after two sub-par rounds. With his C+ game he's even. C+ for other guys means missing the cut by 6 strokes

Few things:

-Tiger needs more reps. Not playing until the Memorial is not gonna let him fair well for Chambers Bay.

-I dont care what anyone says; I like and respect Kevin Na. Dude has some game. Kinda a crazy person, but respect him going through all the boos and rising.

-As most have said, this leaderboard is magoooo.

-Ian Poulter is an utter jackass and I wish nothing but the worst for him in his career going forward.

-Despite the overall playing field; I don't get the hype of this tournament and more so this course. Sawgrass doesnt do it for me. Too gimmicky.

-Here's to a 66 for Rory tomorrow.

The question though is...will this C+ game become a normal thing?

Nice post.

I like Na a lot. He's weird but, we're all a little weird right?

I laughed at magooo.

F*ck Poulter.

I like Sawgrass, I don't know, I kind of like gimmicky courses.

Cheers to Rory shooting a 66 :beer:

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
