Don't be silly. Those names were all on the leaderboard. And they're all nobodies.

Not this week they're not. :-)

Kevin Na's preshot routine is agonizing.  Not just on his putts, but on every shot.  They gave him a warning for slow play, but apparently he picked it up enough to not be put on the clock - but still agonizing.  On another note, watching his reaction to his tee shot on the 17th was kinda funny.  Went from "Oh no!" to "Oh yes!" in a span of a few seconds.

30 players within 5 strokes of the lead, including some who aren't "nobodies" (including McIlroy, Scott, Watson, Fowler, Horschel, Garcia, etc.).  Even if a "nobody" wins it, it could be an interesting final round tomorrow!

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

Yeah tomorrow should be interesting. But the insignificant point was simply that a good supply of unknown players are lurking at the top. Some of us like to see the big names battle it. I do lot a good tournament. I just don't get as into it when I know the winner (Martin, Hearn, Thompson, Brown, Fathauer) won't be around after the tournament. Just like James Hahn. Gone baby gone.

I was there today,mainly at number 16, right side of fairway, about driver distance. Didn't see telecast not sure what club people hit off the tee but the longest was Charley Hoffman, then Adam Scott, then Rory. Didn't know Charley was that long. Bubba hit Driver because I saw the pink shaft and head but he wasn't in the top 5 in distance, unless he held it back a little. Patrick Reed sneaky long too. When I got there, Louie was hitting a shot about 20 yards longer than Hoffman's but I don't know if it was his 3rd. Great day. Was at 17 for awhile. Saw Tiger double bogey number 2. I was taken aback by how slim Tiger looks now in person. Definitely lost alot of bulk.

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?

Never heard of Scott Adams. :-P

@Natural Patrick: I just realized you don't really know what "leader board" means. So that's ok. The "leader board" was/is riddled with nobodies. Do you really think we were referring to Garcia, Haas? Kirk had a little flash last year during the FedEx cup. Otherwise, a dud. Kisner, Martin,Brown,Hearn and Thomas. Nobodies. You have no argument. None of this matters, just helping out a fellow golfer who seems a little dense regarding what a big name is on tour. No problem. Cheers. Carry on.

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:

It's Justin Thomas. To whoever was complaining about the leaderboard, don't like it? Turn it off. This of us that actually follow the tour closely know the majority of the players.

James Hahn and Ben Martin have won on tour. There are plenty of name players on tour that were once no-names, cut these guys a little slack, it's not a friggin major ;-)

mvmac....I'm not raggin these guys. I just don't see any of those guys doing much more. That's my opinion. My preference for watching. Who the hell are you to tell me what I can and can't like to watch? Criminey this sight is so sensitive. Relax and cheer for Scott brown all you want. I for one won't. Big deal.

Pretty sure you misread his tone - the smiley should've been a hint. I believe that was a tongue in cheek comment. Im thinking Sergio is our only real remaining chance at a "big" name winning (no offense Bill Haas). There are 10 guys at -8 or better and you gotta think a couple of them will shoot decent scores, so anybody else, like Rickie or Rory, is gonna have to go real low to contend. Go Sergio!!

Another sensitive one eh? I don't enjoy watching scarcely known players on the leader board. I am obsessed with golf and watch it constantly regardless of what tournament it is. Some of us just have a preference for watching the bigger names of current play. Why is that a crime. Get your panties out of war and except the fact that other people have different preferences. A reasonable person would simply say "I like watching new players do well, I think it's more interesting than watching the same guys compete over and over" And that's fine. But to try and argue that Brown, Martin, etc...aren't nobodies is just being assanine. TPC is regarded by many as the 5th major. I NEVER claimed these players to be losers, inferior at all. I said they are nobodies and that is simply the truth. I'm sorry I expressed my preferences for golf viewing. I should've known TST would cry foul.

Apparently it matters to you. If Calling someone who plays on the PGA Tour a nobody, makes you feel better about yourself, then Cheers.

Yes that's why I added the smiley, thanks for the clarification.

We're just having a discussion and others are expressing their views as well. I think you're taking things a bit too personally.

I have to assume you're very young. Otherwise, what an ignorant statement. If you don't know what I mean by "nobody"... Well...I'm wasting my time with you.

@mvmac I know. I apologize. Not personal. Im just amazed that Patrick could say something so ignorant as "if Calling a PGA pro a nobody makes me feel good about myself..." Huh? That kind of ignorance frustrates me and I apologize. Let's get back to the topic. It's a tight, crammed leader board and I think Sunday will be an awesome day at TPC!

How is that being sensitive? For someone who likes to run their mouth as much as you do you're the one getting defensive when someone disagrees with you. I'm off to watch some nobodies make some birdies instead of arguing with one.

I get your point. You won't get anyone here to agree with your point - that's pretty much message board mentality.

I prefer when an established player who has already shown he can win regularly on the tour wins the big ones (majors and Players).

Craig Perks, Todd Hamilton, even Ben Curtis (although I believe he has more than one win on tour) are examples of players I'd rather not see win the top tournaments.

    • Day 244: spent two hours at the range doing full swing and short game work. Worked on my two pieces with drills using driver and 6 iron. Then went through the bag focusing on long, high, slow backswing. Moved on to longer chips and pitches using various clubs, PW to 58 and varied lies, up and down hill, tight and fluffy. Then did and shots and finished with flop shots over the bunker to a pin only 4 paces on. It was really humid and I sweat buckets. Had to wear my rain gloves most of the time.
    • I will say I was wrong earlier in the thread. I thought it was an intentional act of rudeness, but now I see it’s entirely a tv sitcom now. BD and BK are clearly now egging the fans on. 
    • Eww. Don’t look good to me. I’ll pass.  
    • Hey, wait just a minute ... careful of unintended consequences: Maybe they just need to call these irons the Terminator series. (Gotta be an "I'll be back" reference to golf clubs somehow, but it's not coming to me.)
