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.

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.

    • Congrats to Schauffele! May not be a major but it ranks high on the list of a golfers resume. It does with me anyway.....
    • Mine was my mother.  She was a very angry person with a temper.   Golf was not her game.  She took it up to spend time with me when I was a teenager, after I started playing when I was a caddie. she had a violent, slashing swing.   Her clubs were a set of old MacGregor blades and she would hit the 2-iron a lot off the tee.   It would go far, but rarely where she wanted.  Seriously, it was like some type of hockey motion. she was easily frustrated and had zero short game.  She would ping pong back and forth across the green because her chipping miss was blading the ball.  She’d get mad, start swearing and sometimes take 4 chips/pitches around the green.  Several times I’d have to apologize because she’d get mad and swear so much.  If she was in a bunker, forget it.  Just run! Her main quirk was water though.   It could be a lake or a 2 foot wide stream in front of her.  She’d find it.   We were in Myrtle Beach at Wild Wing Hummingbird years ago and there is a creek hat winds through.  She was about 20 feet in front of he creek that was only a couple of feet deep in front of her.  Sure enough, she topped it and it went in the creek, carried away by the current.   She was super pissed and I couldn’t stop laughing.   We didn’t talk for most of the rest of the day. 
    • Played in an event with a pair that both felt the need to stretch and practically do calisthenics on the first tee right behind me from my warm up, address and right through my swing. I guess they didn’t arrive early enough. It was almost like a parody sketch.    one of the guys was a super nervous sort that could not be still or refrain from fidgeting. He liked to stand on the green behind the flag and be in constant motion. I typically don’t mind where people stand or even if they move around a little, but this was almost like the student section waving giant foam fingers when the opponent is attempting a field goal, extra point, or foul shot. he seemed like a nice guy, just oblivious 
    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
