Fowler moves to #4 in the World Ranking after beating a star-studded field in Abu Dhabi, including Spieth (#1) and Rory (#3).  We had a separate conversation (thread) last week about Fowler and the idea he was poised to join "the big boys" a/k/a "the big 3". Without a Major, it will be difficult for Fowler to replace one of the current Big 3. However, rather than isolate the group to 3 members, Rickie could soon make a very compelling argument to add a seat at the table and begin a new dialogue: "The Big 4".http://www.europeantour.com/europeantour/season=2016/tournamentid=2016004/news/newsid=283619.html#JP02l2Df5l8H6dkt.97

I like the Rickster. Good kid. I hope he wins a major this year as long as Tigs isn't in it.

Agreed. Great guy too. The way Rickie had been improving consistently, I believe he will take at least one major this year. At least he'll be on the hunt and give them a good run at it. But then again, golf can pull out the unexpected and who knows.

Young guns all did well and I was happy that Fowler got the win.  This is going to be a very competitive season on the PGA Tour, especially if Tiger can make it back and Phil and Dufner can continue to play like they did this weekend.

I wouldn't expect much from Tiger this year...

Highly doubtful that Tiger will come back this year.  More than likely will take the entire year off and start again next year.

Rickie played a good game and showed the potential to win a major soon.  Should make for more interesting tournaments with Jordan, Jason, Rory and Rickie all able to complete at the highest level

I'm not sure Rickie has the talent of the Day, Speith, or Rory, but he's a damn good golfer. Probably a good chance he gets his major this year.

 

i think he is every bit the talent that Speith has.  i dont think either Speith nor Ricky have the raw physical talent that Day and Rors have,

Well - that 4 foursome would be a hell of a scrambles team.

 

 

Rory's closing eagle was FUN.  Hope his A-game is back.

How do you measure such a thing as "talent?"   Day and Rory can certainly hit the ball farther than Spieth and probably Ricky, but that's not the only form of talent you need to win.

    • Best part about this pit stop is that they did more than the pit stops in the videos above. Not only did they change the tires, they also adjusted the front wing at the same time on both sides. All in under 2 seconds still.
    • If it was about skill, and if the green reading books made bad putters better than they otherwise would perform, we'd see the worst putters on tour being closer to the best putters because there is less of a skill gap between the two. Instead we see that the gap between the best and the worst at putting has only grown larger since the widespread introduction of green reading books. This means they have not had any measurable impact on a player's ability to putt well, because it isn't allowing the worst putters on tour to keep up with the best like you would see if some part of the game took less skill suddenly. I ignored the skill issue because claiming it's a matter of skill is patently ridiculous, and provably false. They can say whatever they like, doesn't mean a word of it is true.
    • I have been thinking of this for a bit now and it happened to me yesterday, where I hit only 2 of 4 par-5s in regulation.   I am not sure what a realistic expectation for me should be.  I feel I should be able to make routine pars on these, or at least routine GIRs.  I try (I am not always successful, but I generally try) to not go for a pin from outside of 80 yards, focusing instead on getting on the green.  But even with that, maybe I should think more about what a realistic expectation for me on a par-5 is. I am always happy with a GIR.  Yesterday I hit 6 GIR, I don't think I was inside 25 feet on any of them, and I played those six holes in a total of +1.  I think that's a pretty good outcome for 6 GIRs, especially since I didn't make any of the birdie putts (which, again, were all low probability anyway).  
    • I saw that, I wish it was more tailored towards older teens than kids. It might be more as a cartoon style over an anime style. I will probably check it out.  FFIX is my 2nd favorite FF games I have played.  1. FFXII 2. FFIX 3. FFX 4. FFVII Remake 5. FFXV 6. FFVII 7. FFVIII I just like FFXII for the combat system, and the characters. I think it is overlooked in the FF series. It wasn't ground breaking, but just very good. I enjoyed playing that series the most. 
    • This is in the definitions in the Rules, and its Nearest Point of Complete Relief.  Your second paragraph is reasonably accurate, although you should generally look at COMPLETE relief to either side of the path, and determine which potential Reference point is closer to the original position of the ball..  Diagram 16.1a shows this pretty clearly. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=16 The underlined portion of your post is generally wrong
