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

Apparently, Rory led in driving accuracy and approach shot proximity to hole. If he could have made putts, he runs away with this event..

But ... he appears to be a man on a mission even if his putter is not...

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 And how about the outdated promo for Mothers' Day featuring Ricky and his Mom.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.

smh-

There will always be people who look for the negatives in things - must be something in their wiring.

That was an awesome finish to the tournament.  Fowler goes 6 under on the last 6 holes to get into the playoff.  Sergio has to birdie two out of three to get in and Kisner birdied 17 and had a great chance for birdie on 18 to win.  Exciting day of golf.

I think it was Pat Perez who led in Driving Accuracy and also in GIR ?

agree on the wardrobe choice - pockets longer than her shorts & strapless top was just begging for a wardrobe malfunction.    Side note ... I was at a first communion party recently & there were some 14 year old girls dressed like HOOKERS (or at least what you would expect to see in an 80's hair metal band video) - skin tight skirts practically up to their ass crack & stilletto's honestly, it was kind of funny to see them all stumbling around in those high heels, but disturbing too in a way.    I guess I'm showing my age ... the way the younger generations dress is bizarre to me ... and I grew up in the 80's !!

For the attention he gets, Fowler needs more than two wins in 142 events for me to not think he's at least a little overrated.

IF Perez beat 80.6% in driving accuracy, hats off to him ...

And who doesn't like a fashionable halter top? The color looked good on her ... dark skin,dark hair, deep yellow top. Some guys don't want the button up type. I'm with Rickie.

With all the talk about overratedness, I didn't see the poll results for being underrated - Haas came to mind immediately as did Jimmy Walker (didn't make the list)......surprised that Watson made both lists (under and overrated).

Me: 11%

Bill Haas (above): 11%

Bubba Watson: 8%

Jordan Spieth: 8%

Charles Howell III: 5%

Graham DeLaet: 5%

Zach Johnson: 5%

Justin Thomas: 5%

Other: 42%

Rory hit the ball better (full swing) than everyone else at the Players Championship. I'd love to know how many birdie putts within 15 feet he missed.

Oh and congrats to Rickie Fowler!!!

Perez hit 82.14% of the fairways.

Here are the weekly performance stats from THE PLAYERS Championship:

THE PLAYERS Winner: Rickie Fowler Weekly leader Finish
Driving Distance 295.6 (11) D. Johnson (311.5) T69
Driving Accuracy 62.50%, 35 of 56 (T43) P. Perez (46 of 56, 82.14%) T17
Strokes Gained: Putting .752 (20) B. Harman (1.751) T8
Greens in Regulation 62.50%, 45 of 72 (T51) P. Perez (57 of 72, 79.17%) T17
Proximity to the hole 30'-6" (T3) R. McIlroy (28-1) T8
Scrambling 70.37%, 19 of 27 (10) B. Harman (15 of 20, 75.00%) T8

Usually the leader of the tournament is near the top in GIR's. For Fowler to end up winning being T51 just shows he played smart golf and knew were to miss on the course. His scrambling is 70%, so that clearly helped him make up for it. Still even with T51 in GIR he was T3 in proximity. It wasn't like he was all over the place. Clearly he liked hole 17. ;)

On the final day yes, by a large margin probably. Going basically -8 in the final 10 holes he played was amazing.

On the whole tournament, nope. He wasn't even in the top 50 in GIR for the week.


Sorry for not multi-quoting. When I quoted Crim it bumped me down to the new editing area.. I forgot to scroll up to the area for editing my existing post. oops :whistle:

I didn't see the bit about Billy Horschel speaking to the lady who clicked her camera in his backswing. The article said he was quite upset and would've "ripped him a new one" if it was a guy. Also said Sergio got heckled quite a bit. I wish that wouldn't happen. I can't imagine heckling the guy in a middle of a tense golf tournament. But all in all just an amazing conclusion. Fowler really stepped up.

Rory's proximity to the hole though...he missed a ton of putts within 15 feet.

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.

    • 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....  
    • Day 284: Worked a bit on my priority pieces with a new drill to feel the left leg push back. Then worked on tempo.
    • Ugh. They better keep him away from tall buildings for a few days…
    • Broke 90 today (from the white tees) with an 88.   Most consistent round ever...now to turn the 5's to 4's and the 6's to 5's....
    • Day 40 (05 Aug 21) - Solo round today as the rain had relented.  Course was pretty open as there was only one person ahead and no one behind.  Allowed me to be not rushed as I played 18 at the local course.  A good day with the putter which I did have two putters with me - my old DF992 and the Odyssey White Steel 5.  As I had time, I would set up a second ball once on the green, play out the original ball for the score and then putt the other ball with the other putter from the same distance.  Found I am much more accurate with the White Steel 5, so in the bag it stays.
