I'm for Gainey, who wears 2 gloves.  Same as me, maybe for different reasons though. Everyone else....yawnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

I'm not sure I can think of a PGA player who has a more Ugly swing than Gainey. Before you crucify me, my swing is not exactly PGA material, just sayin.

I like Brooks Koepka and all, and I don't say this much, but this is has to be one of...if not the most lackluster leaderboard of the year. Villegas had a great round, but he doesn't do much for me. Here's to hoping the cream (Phil, Horschel, maybe even Luke Donald) rises a bit.

haha I was thinking the same thing. I've got to find other things to do this weekend.

This is kinda what I'm afraid of next week. A lot of the big names are not coming in to the Open on good form. I think you're going to see a lot of "no names" in contention next week, especially given a course that not a lot of people know much about. Could be an odd week.

The most lackluster leaderboard of the year so far, for sure.

Since this is my home town event it's always one I look forward to every year. Too bad it has never had a decent enough date to attract more top name players. It seems that there are fewer "names" here this year than usual. Maybe more players decided to get to Chambers Bay earlier since that course is such an unknown to most of them.

Watched Gomez at Arnie's practice round and didn't know who the heck he was.....looked like some young kid who snicked on the course with his father caddying....

From Arjun Atwals caddie on facebook...

"Gonna be a fun weekend at St Jude. Been a wild week so far. Rental Car stolen Sunday in broad daylight from hotel parking lot. Clubs included. Ping guys worked to get a set put together. Gave us Hunter Mahans backup set for Monday and things didn't go too well. New set built on Tuesday, new bag flown in, his wife sent the back up putter that arrived Thursday at noon. After 65 yesterday here for the weekend. Tune in today and tomorrow. It's been a hell of a ride this week so far. These are the stories you read about."

Was concerned of not hearing about Gainey (2 gloves) on the leaderboard so i checked out the PGA website.  Won't be retuning there anytime soon.  Very bad IMO.  Front page leaderboard does not even give scores, only miles behind. I'm not so good at arithmetic so don't need to do the math, but would like to see it Gainey, or anyone, shot 71, 76 or 83; not 7, 12 or 25 behind.

And it's good that FedEx has deep pockets coz this tourney is on it's way out.

just an example of how the tour schedule is over saturated with tournaments.....I always believed there should be breaks in the schedule to give key players a rest and increase the quality of the tournaments on the schedule.......Oct to Oct schedule is too long.

As long as the name ST.JUDE is associated with it. This tournament is going to be around for as long as they want it to. The money that is raised for the kids and the hospital. Gives the PGA public relation dept a big ole pat on the back.

I've got several posters of Greg Owen up in the den... I hope this is the day he breaks through finally!

Seriously though... he's made over $6M in his career... what the?  Who knew.

Seems to me that if a player, "key" or otherwise, wants a rest, they can take off as often or as long as they like. I don't understand those who think a leaderboard is only interesting if the usual suspects are at the top. I enjoy watching a new player or two break through.

Agree with this post. Nobody says a player has to play, they can take breaks as long as they like. As for the leaderboard, for me watching golf is also about the pressure on the players at the top to win, and hopefully see an open tournament until the last hole. Of course it is nice to see the best players in the world, but there is more to golf than that.

    • Fair enough. I wouldn't have the slightest guess on average trips per licensed driver, but I would think that using driver instead of car would be more accurate.
    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be?
