Duff's X and Fowlers's  girl are Way Hotter than Spieth's. I agree  Jordan's girl just does not do it for me,

Tough one for me...yeah I think Amanda is smokin, Ricky's girl as well.....but put Jordan's girl in some librarian glasses and a business skirt...damn....

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

I thought the absence of wall to wall commercials was one of the best parts of the telecast. Turns out, a record number of shots were shown. Hope this is the start of a trend, because I rarely watch regular events, even dvr'd, because of ads.

I tracked the televised strokes by player during the NBC airing of the final round of the Players Championship. NBC showed 381 regulation strokes from the Sunday round. The telecast began at 2pm ET and regulation play ended at 6:48, so this worked out to 1.32 strokes per minute - the highest average of the six events I have tracked.

Note: NBC obviously televised all 39 shots from the playoff, but I did not count these in the table so as to provide a truer comparison to the tracking for other tournaments.

I think you may be onto something with that. Why didn't I think of that.

I hope he can follow it up with a major (or two)......seems like some of these players win a big one (Haas, Horschel) and can't seem to get on a roll.....

Fun to watch the final hole....

@ RickieFowlerPGA Mom & Sis were at JAX airport when found out Rickie could win. Missed flight and zoomed back to TPC. (check out the dogs).

Wow, that's interesting. I do remember Hicks saying something about having not been to commercial in 45 min but I never heard why, i.e., who the sponsor was that allowed them to do it. Wonder if NBC saw the thread here last week on how to improve a golf telecast. The answer is, just show more golf!

I'd take Horschel outta that mix. If that wasn't a roll he went on end of last year, I don't know what a roll is. And, we haven't heard the last of him, he's a stud. Rickie too, the 2nd win will catapult him into greater success. I think both will have majors on their resumes before too long.

She's hot, but Jordan Spieth's gf is 10x hotter. Jordan's Spieth's girl is challenging Dufner's ex and Day's wife. [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/121182/] [/URL]

Average looks but hopefully a good person. Super hot chix rarely equal stability.

Wow....she does for me. I guess different strokes for different folks. Maybe I just like them young (well old enough young). I think she's like only 19.

I'd take Jordan's girl over Rickie's. Stickly/skeletal bodies kind of gross me out. I'd take Dufner's ex over both of them. She has a little bit more meat on her bones.

Agreed x 1000

Agree. No disrespect to Fox who I'm confident will do a good job with the US Open, but I'm really going to miss NBC doing it. I think they are the best of the networks covering golf. I love Dan Hicks and Johnny Miller together and I think Mark Rolfing and Roger Maltbie are two of the best on-course reporters. Gary Koch is really good, too. Only thing I won't miss is Peter Jacobsen. Not a fan of him. Wasn't a fan of Faxon, either, but now he works for Fox. But NBC always seemed to cover the Open well in the Final Rounds.

I like Miller the best - but Koch is on my nerves.  Might be his southern drawl.   I have yet to see FOX mess up their sports coverage - like NFL, MLB, even NASCAR - they always seem to do a good job except sometimes go overboard w/ the use of graphics.  I'm really looking forward to the US Open - looks like a really interesting course Chambers Bay....used to live up there near Gig Harbor and first started golfing in the area down near Tacoma, Washington.

I think that's my main concern is they'll go overboard with graphics and technology. Sometimes when you do something for the first time you try to be too different and it backfires....like the glowing puck. Golf is one of those sports where I like it more simple rather than going overboard with technology. From what I've seen in the Media Day special, they aren't doing anything that seems too over the top.

WAGs (Wifes & girlfriends) of celebrities are always fun to study. Some players clearly have very stable WAGs and probably have been together for years... way before fame & $$$$. Others it is pretty clear the fame or $$$$ allowed the athlete to get to a new level of WAG. Those are the sad cases where a very supportive WAG was discarded for a flashier new model. Then there are the puzzling 'who would have guessed" WAGs that some how seek out winning players. Dufner's ex clearly must have had a crystal ball when she hooked up with him in college. No way most WAGs would have given him a second look but she saw the potential???  The next level are the professional WAGs that always seem to show up on the arm of a winner... sometimes multiple winners in a single season. You can bet many wives tour with  their husbands solely to protect their investment from those professional WAGs.

From Golfweek: Tiger Woods made 18 birdies to Rory McIlroy’s 12. But the game at this level is more about minimizing mistakes, so although McIlroy finished T-8, Woods was miles behind at T-69. That’s because whereas McIlroy made just six bogeys, Woods made 10 bogeys, four doubles and one triple.

Wow, that's gotta be close to a record for him in terms of over par holes for a tournament.

    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
    • Day 27 (23 Jul 21) - long day w/the grandkids, decided a few minutes with the putter was what was needed.  Worked on backswing - downswing length making sure both are equal length.  
    • Has anyone successfully got a round off of a GG Live system via computer in the past few days?  I'm wondering if Wednesday's failure was related to some sites disappearing briefly from the internet (although I was able to access the GG site).   Right now, mine is just recharging so I can use it on Sunday.  Would be nice to get the stats for today.
