Can Rory learn to putt so he can win 10 more majors? Also, shout out to Bill Haas for having his best career performance in a major.

Pieters...wow. Nice self-control Buddy! You and Rory ?

i think Pieters wins this round v Rory in terms of intentional club damage. the Snap Over The Knee is an all time classic, but hucking the halves into the gorse is true artistry.

I'd agree. And he flat out fired those pieces into the gorse; quite beautiful to see.

No doubt - a spectacular display indeed

Well there's a giant douche canoe to begin with.

Is anyone else having morning coffee?  Somehow that feels wrong when watching this event.  Should I be drinking tea?

Huh, comparing Phil to Moe Norman.  That's an interesting comparison...

Mmm... where is Troon?  Would a nice morning Scotch be okay?  And how much do I care about the errands I have to do this afternoon?

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
