A different course once it dried out. Plenty of water and tight fairways.  Thick rough near the greens and pin placements on the edges of greens.  The greens were very challenging and lighning fast.  Some players had serious difficulties trying to hold the greens with their approach shots.  I thought there was some great skill on display on Sat and Sun.  Day was able to handle the mental pressure of the course better than everyone else.

I disagree. You get birdie fests every week on Tour in the John Deere Classics and Humana Challenge's. The big tournaments should test the best players to the max. Seeing guys shooting 63 and 64 every

I don't like birdie fests, I much prefer to watch them be challenged and struggle to be -2 or - 3 for a round versus -9.  

Conditions change from day to day. How is that unfair? Everyone plays the same course. You say it's unfair and then immediately after say that they didn't adjust - which is it?

When Day was running after that putt on 17, I think he was running to get in a better spot to watch the ball break around the hole to prepare for his comebacker, not because he thought he'd made it.

I did too.  But when we saw the replay and got to watch his expression, I changed my mind.

Watched the final round yesterday. One thing for sure is, Rory's putting game is in the crapper

I felt it was unfair to all the golfers, not just a few.  The greens were to fast even by admission of the dude that was trying to manage the green speed.  Estimated green speed Saturday afternoon was 15.  This is what was out of control.  The golfers didn't adjust or couldn't adjust, don't know as I have never played at this level.  The speed was ridiculous.  They did however adjust for the Sunday finals.  Really fun tournament to watch on television.

Just on philosophical standings, I find that a statement like that for a competition of any kind to be a self apparent oxymoron. :whistle:

Golf tournaments are actually one area where I'd say the word "unfair" is pretty much impossible as they all play the same course - crappy or nice or otherwise (the obvious exception being morning vs afternoon tee times on some courses seems to be a big effect)

But I know what you are saying and I agree with the intent.

Sorry if this has already been answered, but where can I watch a replay? Seems this was exclusively aired and I couldn't watch live.

Golf Channel may have it on demand or on line.

    • Day 373 - January 16, 2021 Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).
    • Good advice.  Lay a towel a couple of inches behind the ball when you practice.   It will be an eye opener.
    • Oh no...here comes the ‘ he was the greatest ball striker of all time’ talk....
    • Ok so I went out today and played a few holes.  Been videoing my swing and I’m seeing definite improvement.  I’m not flipping anymore and I’m starting to take divots after the ball.  On my good shots now I’m pulling in the ball left.  Any ideas why that would be?  I go to my pro for second lesson on Monday so I will get his input obviously.  Just curious if anyone else has had this issue.
    • I don't know much about endorsements, but despite that bit on the bottom, I don't think Thomas will be signing with Ralph Lauren again.
