The girl friend's Daisy Dukes... with pockets showing and a "wardrobe malfunction" waiting to happen Top had to have been cringe worthy for the PGA.  At least Ricky abandoned his orange for the win. And how about the outdated promo for Mothers' Day featuring Ricky and his Mom. Had to have been a year or more old judging by his long hair in the Promo. Typical PGA... too cheap to film a new Mothers' Day promo? Great golf... BUT you can see the Players Tournament will never equal the class of the Masters!  More on par with a Waste Management Open. Hate to admit it but the girl friend has really changed my opinion of Ricky. Reminds me of the minor league baseball players hooking up with local townies.

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

That's on some serious don't judge a book by its cover shit right there. ---------- Rickie Fowler's girlfriend is fine as hell.

Is everything you don't like somehow attributable to political correctness? Just let it go.

Furthermore, I had let it go. I had nothing but positive comments today about the tournament then little Patrick had to chime in with another of his ignorant posts. Not one thing have you mentioned to chowder head Patrick. Typical TST....be a pansie and agree with everyone and play the PC game or get nothing but ridicule from guys like you. I'm done. Let it go son. Let it go.

Check out this ****ing guy.

BTW, PGA Tour.  Get your golf governing bodies straight.

And appreciate Alexis Randock's body, governed by perfection.

Couldn't have asked for a better finish. Rickie really impressed me last year at the majors, and I've been a big fan since. So stoked to see someone with some flair and personality win this event in particular.

I wonder if this is the youngest age total of the Masters and TPC winners since the latter's inception?

45? Yeah it's gotta be. Tiger won both the Players and the Masters in 2001, at age 24. So that's 48.

I was glued to the TV. Had the playoff been Brown, Kisner and Farthauer.....I wouldn't have been. Now Natural Patrick, do you understand that? Or are you gonna hit me with your PC comment that "Everybody is a winner and they are all wonderful athletes?"


I would put money on the fact they the are ALL Better athletes than you Vincent.

Yes, she probably is a wonderful person. Guess I was just surprised to see the wardrobe choice.  Regardless, I am sure she would have been even more striking in grown-up clothes. And Yes, I did forget the PGA Tour is separate from the PGA of America. Although I suspect some of the Tour members do not consider themselves elite rock stars.

I think my favorite thing from today was Rickie's 17th in regulation. You could hear the conversation between him and his caddie, and he executed exactly what they were talking about. It's crazy how precise they can be in both their preparation for a shot and in actually executing a swing.

I do that at least once every 20 holes.

Since 2008, five players who are either on or have been on that short list of "Best Player to never win a major" have took home a Players trophy. Something tells me they wouldn't mind if the PGA changed history and called this the 5th major so they can take that monkey off their back:

2008: Sergio Garcia

2009: Henrik Stenson

2011: KJ Choi

2012: Matt Kuchar

2015: Rickie Fowler

I'd say Sergio is still at the top of that list amongst active players.  Stenson, Day, and Dustin Johnson close.

EDIT--Rickie will join that conversation soon, if not already.  But all of these guys besides Sergio should be given the benefit of the doubt at this point because of age.  Johnson's getting close to the tipping point.

That part of it never crossed my mind - but my wife (a total non-golfer, FWIW) said basically the same thing, that she wasn't dressed appropriately for a golf tournament and she wondered what the Tour thought about it.  I explained to her that "golf attire" was entirely different than "spectator attire", even at a PGA Tour event, and that there was nothing inappropriate about how Alexis was dressed.  She's a young woman and was dressed the way many young women her age dress on a daily basis.  Maybe she would have chosen a different outfit had she known that Rickie was going to win and she was going to be so prominently featured on national television - or maybe not.  My wife's response was "You just don't care because she's hot".  I didn't have an answer for that one. :-D

I do think your "local townies" comment was a little trashy and disrespectful, though.  It's not like she's just some hoochie that Rickie hooked up with for a little post-round action.

I have to say that in my life, an occasional young white trash looking chick in a small town showing way too much skin was just the tonic I needed.

Chicks.  Let's love them all.

For someone that likes to complain about TST people you still post here, making you a TST person. A moderator tells you to take it easy and stop making everything a political argument and instead your rebuttal is piss off. The forum is full of helpful and tolerant people, if you want to be the 1% and continue being a prick then pound sand.

    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
