Laughing at you, not with you.

Then he does Not watch golf regularly. How could you watch golf regularly and not recognize those names?

Yeah, because everyone knows who Ben Martin, Kevin Kisner and Jason Thomas are from all those trophies they've held up in the past. :roll:

[quote name="ChrisP" url="/t/81776/2015-the-players-championship-discussionthread/306#post_1139968"] Yeah, because everyone knows who Ben Martin, Kevin Kisner and Jason Thomas are from all those trophies they've held up in the past. :roll: [/quote] Hang on Chris.....we're about to get some statistics from some obscure tournaments in Asia where these guys lit up the top 50!

Did you hear that nick? 5 of these guys on the leaderboard are first timers here. You really are making a poor argument for calling these guys as regulars.

Actually his Driver has been ok this week. Its his 3w that he has been duck hooking almost each hole it seems. He just hit a wonderful soft fade with his Driver on 5.

[quote name="ChrisP" url="/t/81776/2015-the-players-championship-discussionthread/240_20#post_1139808"] Every time he fools you with a good drive, he comes back and makes a disaster. He just made a mess of 9. Two doubles on par-5s today. That's ugly. [/quote] What does Tiger (or at least the perception of Tiger's fans) have in common with us? He thinks that perfect soft fade is his shot, and all of the blocks and double-crosses are the exception. The reality is the good drive is the anomaly. (Mostly kidding. Mostly.)

What are you calling a leaderboard Albert?  There are over 20 players within a few shots of the lead. Sorry that hurts you so bad.

Held my interest all afternoon, surprisingly. Should be a good finish tomorrow. Can we classify Jax as having the worst golf fans in America? Jeez, I've never seen a tourney with so many stop down moments from pros due to fan interference. And, heard a lot of stuff on TV the pro's didn't react to.

If you watch golf REGULARY, then yes you do.

More from you! It never ends, does it :-)

Since most Sandtrappers are fond of calling players by their first names........

Ben (not Crenshaw)

Kevin (not Na)

Martin (not Kaymer)

Scott (not Adam)

Justin (not Leonard)

Derek

Brian (not Davis)

Luke (not Donald)

etc. etc.

That's not to say you are reading their names for the first time,  but how many of them would you recognise if you fell over them in the street?

You either know who they are, or you don't. There is no barely if you watch golf Religiously

I'm not going to get into a debate about how popular certain players are and whether people show know them or not. It's kinda stupid. Bottom line is this tournament has suspense as far as how many guys are battling for this thing tomorrow. It should be exciting in that regard and I'll be watching. However, if you're going to tell me this is a great looking leaderboard, I'll tell you you're full of spit. It's not. And having average players up there does take some of the excitement out of it. But there are some good players within striking distance that if they can shoot a good round tomorrow, they can win the title.

Captain Obvious says this tourney is wide open. One would expect the newbies to realize they have a chance, then most will fall, let's see who stays up there of the newbies.


Waiting for Sergio to go -5 again, and that puts him at -13, which has won several times.

I would recognize every single player you mentioned if I seen them on the street. I also recognize what an unhappy ass hat you are. Take comfort  in the fact that not all women call their significant other shorty. I had a friend we called shorty but his real name was E.D.

    • I don't like BDC's hat hat because: 1) My personal fashion sense tells me that to pull off wearing a driver cap, one needs to have a certain "it" factor. I don't think Bryson has it. 2) The hat, which is also the log for BDC's "brand", reminds me of all of the times he has put his foot in his mouth. Like yelling at a camera operator about damaging his brand, arguing with a rules official about fire ants and OB line, slow play, the whole Brooks feud thing, making stupid comments about the vaccine, etc. 3) Even without reasons #1 and #2, I think driver caps aren't a good look. Seeing him in a regular hat, he just looked like a golfer representing the US, without all the negative things associated with his image/brand. I won't comment on his manliness, but I am a huge fan of BDC the golfer. I don't care for his non-golf persona/brand, but I think what he has done with his game is remarkable, and he's backed up his approach with a US Open win, multiple tour wins, and a good performance at the Ryder Cup. I look forward to watching him play every week.
    • Hmmmm, that doesn't really track: SG:OTT 2021: 0.660 (4th) 2014: 1.367 (1st) SG:App 2021: 0.403 (35th) 2014: 0.602 (4th) SG:ATG 2021: 0.118 (71st) 2014: 0.022 (93rd) SG:P 2021: 0.187 (66th) 2014: 0.274 (41st) Scoring/SG:Total: 2021: 70.043 (16th)/1.368 (7th) 2014: 68.827 (1st)/2.266 (1st) He's 0.898 strokes worse per round than he was in 2014, and 0.707 of that comes from driving, with another 0.199 coming from his approach shots. What's 0.707 + 0.199? 0.906, which is > 0.898. He's actually gaining 0.305 shots around the green and putting now, when he gained 0.296 in 2014. So, nah, I think his driving and approach play have tailed off. He can't hit wedges very well, either.
    • Already addressed, but to point out again… all of the rules are pretty "arbitrary."
    • Extensions in graphite are a bit tricky because it's difficult to remove them without damaging the shaft. That being said, the simple way to do it is just cut off the extension at the end of the shaft. You will still have the 2 inch piece of extension base down in the shaft but it only weighs a few grams so you won't likely even notice it's there once it's been cut and gripped again.
