Good on him for winning, he seems like a nice guy, but thanking the lord is inappropriate. Yes, your god cares about a multi millionaire winning more millions and a golf tournament, while in other parts of the world......

On a side note, Leishman is a super cool guy.

This is an awkward interview....

Tom Rinaldi ****ing sucks. He literally asks the same questions worded different. "HOW MUCH DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU"? "HOW DOES IT FEEL TO WIN THE BRITISH OPEN"? I was laughing my ass off.

I was laughing my ass off.

I thought I heard that right... Started and ended with the same question.

What did your ass falling off mean to you? and how does it feel to be without an ass?

I'd feel pretty good right now if I'm Oosthuizen. Knowing that Johnson will struggle to make par on 17.

It's really too bad for golf that Oosthuizen cares more about his tractor than golf. He's so talented. Can't really blame the guy, though, if he has other passions.

cares more about his tractor than golf ROFL, you made my day, man

Congrats to Zach Johnson!

Never had a bogey on the front nine, and birdie #18 all four rounds. Clutch performance by Zach all week.

So how many dollars prize money is there between 1st place and a 4 putt on a par 3?

Doesn't really matter for a guy with a Titleist contract and a multi-time Major winner. :-P

No it's not. People with a lot of faith believe that God is in every aspect of their life.

Honestly Zach being a multi-time winner, and really successful on tour for over a decade now, probably doesn't care about the purse.

If he was given the option, either give up The Open championship for 2 million dollars. Zach would keep the Major.

I agree, some people don't know what it means to someone to have a relationship with God - we others who dont' should leave these people alone and let them express it whatever they prefer to express it.

Yeah I don't think it's inappropriate. I think when Zach thanks God, he's not saying God "picked" him to win.

I also find it off-putting and a bit self righteous (or at least awkward) too.  BUT - he's a person with faith and he doesn't hide it. For now, it's Zach's interview and he can respond however he likes.  So I appreciate his sincerity at the least even if it's not my cup of tea.  I'd hope they respect my personal choices to the same extent.

As for you or me, or people that feel like us about the topic?

well, the next time you or I win a major and get interviewed, we can thank someone else.

These types of questions are always, and eternally, a complete waste of time and oxygen.  I wish amateur, crappy reporters would just stop.

Hat off to Zach Johnson. From a Scot, I have never granted anyone the victory as much as Zach. His winning speech was an example in humility and authenticity. As he said himself: Tip o' the cap!

On the golf course, the Golf Gods will have no other Gods before them. He should be careful...

Maybe that was the god he was referring to? Or one of the other 4000+

Well done to Zach.

If he wants to thank the Lord then that's just fine .He thanked another million people aswell.

Get over yourselves and live and let live.

I'm happy for Zach and his expression of thankfulness doesn't bother me one bit.. Others who win and don't thank anyone doesn't bother me either.. To each their own.

Then he'd better chip a ball into the pond next time he's on the practice ground. When you invoke them by name, they usually demand tribute.

Anyway, congratulations to Mr. Johnson.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
