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

you can say that again........

I don't think so personally. He's been a great ambassador for the game to younger fans, I think that's just one of the reasons for the attention. His performance has been stellar since his swing change with Butch. The results weren't wins but you can't overlook his finishes in the majors and OWGR.

He did well at the majors last year, but when I look at this numbers for this year, I see a player who runs hot and cold... again for the attention he gets. But maybe I'm just picky.

He played great. Deserves credit for a great week. Seen him on TV this morning and said he laughs at Poll, he should, but as with today's media, dont perform, we want to know why and anything but a win is worthless. That sucks for these rich dudes, but what they have to live with...

The poll is due to Speith if you ask me. It is hard to win, and when you look, and see "what looks like" a laissez Faire reaction each week. People will call you out. We know that if it were 40 years ago and his earnings / Plus endorsments were a total of 2M to date. He would have a much different attitude towards wanting to win.

No one can tell me that you want to win as bad if you DONT need the money. Of course there is the "no proof angle that we get here so much"

There should be a different kind of appriciation for guys that are already rich, don't need the cash and can still go out and prove they have what it takes to win.

I hope he can back it up with another few good weeks. THat way we don't see the lag and no need to prove anything again look...

What a lot of fun to watch this one.

Too bad for Haas to miss those short putts.

this could have been as many as 5 or 6 in a playoff had a few putts fallen

Feeling bad for Sergio - he just doesn't seem to be able to close the deal lately. For that matter - the mindless comments were nuts - at one point while he was waiting and watching - one of the announcers said something like "He looks like he wants a siesta" - CRINGE.......And then some of the shouts from the crowd, I'm pretty ashamed of the fans there.

As for the "over rated" poll question.  It's totally classless.  I wouldn't be surprised if the 'anonymous' poll had just a ton of blanks (refuse to answer) for that question.  With Ricky and Ian getting just a vote or two total.

at least, i'd hope players would simply refuse to answer such a tactless question

Anyone else think it was kinda sh*tty of his mom and girlfriend to leave early when they thought he was out of it?


No. Should they stick around for almost every PGA Tour finish? He was pretty far back.

I think it was his mom and sister that were at the airport.

Agreed,  I'd probably throw a survey in the trash if I came across a question like that.

Every shot on the PGA Tour makes someone happy. Jealousy is a human emotion. I bet there were lots of people filling in names…

I agree on the fans, no class, it was like a high school cafeteria, no way can this be a major with that kind of riff-raff in the gallery.

Sergio, you just knew he would choke, I think he knew it too, I feel for the guy, as much as I like seeing Fowler win I think I was really rooting for Garcia.

That's a little bit harsh.

He missed a long birdie putt on 17 and a medium length birdie putt on 18.  That's not a choke, that's just getting beat.

It was a great win...His popularity is ahead of his performance.  But im not sure if that means that he is overrated, I don't think that I have heard too many golf people say that he is a top 5 player.  However, he is in the top 10 of the world golf rankings now at #9.  It will be curious to see if this performance...Which coming down the stretch and in extra holes on sunday was very impressive jump starts his season...

That was one of the BEST tournaments I have seen in years. Fowler was unreal. I can not imagine how good that feels; winning right after that survey...good job Rickie

What do you say about the 2002 U.S. Open then?

    • 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....
