It's now the "Big 4".... Maybe we just don't have a single good golfer.... It looks to me the "A" game on any one of these guys can not be beat. It would be nice to get a final round with everyone on there "A" game

I think we're getting ahead of ourselves here. Anything less than perfection and we're already prepared to move on?

My cats breath smells like cat food.

Every golfer has his streaks, and then tires. Jordan is human, and young. Fatigue, fame, attention, media suck the life out of you. Think he will be a force for a long time. His swing does not look as

Can you imagine if Jack were just now starting his career? With all the social media and 24 hour news channels... They would speculate about whether he's even human! Can anyone beat him? Will he cure cancer?

Nah - as soon as he bogeyed a hole, the speculation would start that he was 'done' and they'd be looking for the next latest and greatest.

So true! One three-Jack (unintended pun) or missed cut and they'd move on to say, Tom Watson, and fill up the talk shows about how over-rated he was/is.

Every golfer has his streaks, and then tires. Jordan is human, and young. Fatigue, fame, attention, media suck the life out of you. Think he will be a force for a long time. His swing does not look as if it will injure him. I can't say the same for Jason Day or Rory ... I think their swings will lead them to more of a roller coaster ride.

Jordan has his head on straight, just needs rest, and get away from the life sucking forces surrounding him.

Or as Trump would say, "Disaster. Can you believe this kid? Wouldn't hire him as my caddie. Don't misunderstand me, love Jordan, great kid, amazing player, but the last week was a disaster. The last 2 majors... pitiful! I'd send him to Mexico in exchange for some brick layers and landscapers, but right now, Mexico wouldn't go for it. No way, kid can't hit driver out of his shadow, and putt? He is lipping worse than Monica, and yes, I have sampled those goods. Had to ... I want to be President, gotta see the benefits. Amazing, hired some Mexicans, legal I'm sure, to build an Oval Office with closet at Trump Towers. But it's amazing! Not like that 200 yr old slum they call the White House. That comes down when I'm in. It will have gold inlaid walls, tell ya' I'll sell tickets and make a profit, pay off the debt. Will make the Chinese send a million or so people to go through and charge them extra. Tell ya' what, I'll redesign it, just like I redesigned Doral -- no big hitter will dominate there.... Oh, Jordan? Great kid, amazing, but he's from Texas, probably packin', good for him. That's the problem, too much weight in his left pocket, can't turn. Too much steel in that handgun. I use a 3d printer for my firearms - light, and I'm an amazing shot -- only need one shot."


That was fantastic!  I read the entire thing and Trump's voice just came through loud and clear!

I think he's finished, he will never recover psychologically from these recent putrid and horrible rounds.  He should just take the money he's won and open a driving range; maybe sell homemade ham sandwiches to the real golfers who never go through this type of thing.  Nothing more needs to be said.  Next topic........

Maybe he could pick up some new endorsements and do infomercials:

1) Warrior Golf

2) Hammer X Driver

3) Loud Mouth Golf


Nah...who'd want a washed-up loser like Spieth as one of their endorsers?

We all need to realize that the expectations we put on any golfer are totally asinine.  Rory, Day, Jordan, Rickie, etc. will never be the level of golfer we want them to be.  They will have great spurts of golf but then they will regress.  That is how it goes.  There will not be a golfer that can dominate the field week in and week out.

Just be happy we have so much talent that each week any one of them can be great.   Just don't expect any of them to be great all the time.

If Jack started his career now, he wouldn't have had nearly the great career he had. #StrengthOfField

I think the same can be said for Tiger also.I think right now golf is as strong as it has ever been.Imagine if you could have Hogan Jones Hagen Nicklaus Player Watson Palmer Tiger Faldo Phil playing at their prime right now.You would have number 1 sport by far.

Friend of mine told me the pros are really only on top of their game like 6 weeks out of a year which makes since considering what we see.

It's not increased in strength as much from 1960-2000 as it has from 2000-2015.

No super great way to quantify that, so it's my opinion.

Yes - he's totally done.

Until he wins again and then he'll go back to being The Next Tiger.  This will sadden Rickie Fowler, who is only 1 win away from being the temporary "Next Tiger" himself.

You know who I blame for the above?  Golf media.  They are so desperate for "The Next Tiger" or the next "Great Rivalry" to come along that they pretty much announce it's arrival weekly.

When Spieth was playing with Day he looked intimidated. Day was blasting drives past him and putting lights out.

Spieth when he won the Majors was in a special place. whether he can return to that place remains to be seen.

And in six months when another guy looks like a beast, and Day is struggling, we'll be asking "can Jason Day return to that place? remains to be seen..."

That's golf, very, very few can keep up dominance.

Day, Spieth, Rory, Fowler... these kids will be trading places in the rankings for the next decade.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
