This is one of my favorite tournaments of the year. I really liked the course last year, too. I'm excited to catch as much of this as I can.

That said, they use the World Rankings for the seedings on this, right? How the hell is Alex Noren an 8 seed? I have honestly never seen a single shot of his. He hasn't won a single event that's on par with any PGA tournament, but he's an 8 seed. How is Yuta Ikeda 37? Who is he? Probably a different topic, but why do the World Rankings reward people winning second-rate tournaments so much? Every year there's some random European who wins events with fields similar to the Puerto Rico Open that gets into the top 15 or so.

It's probably a little bit short sighted to say how is Alex Noren at 8 seed and who is Yuta Ikeda,the world rankings set the field and it is a world match play event,not a USA match play, these players choose to play mostly in there chosen tour's, so if you look outside the USA PGA, look across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans you find European,Japan,Asian,tours to name a few, over the years some of the best world ranked players from all countries, play in these tours, so I say it bit short minded, really short minded to call them second rate, is the OPEN Championship second rate.:ninja:

End round two there lot of guys who play outside the states mostly, in good shape to make the last 16.

Sergio with a little problem, on his way to losing to Rahm (and "missing the cut")

 

Metal spikes would have come in handy.

Slow motion - looks like it's the hands, not the feet.

They definitely need to tweak the format in how they handle WDs in this event.  It didn't matter for Day (as he WD the first day) or Molinari, but in the case of Gary Woodland, if a player WDs before the end of pool play, they should forfeit all matches, including retroactively.  It's unfair to reward remaining opponents with automatic Ws while keeping any losses incurred from opponents who had to play before the WD.  IMO, because it's pool play, if a player does not finish pool play, then awarding everyone else a W effectively removes the player from the pool and allows the remaining players to play a three man pool.  It simply makes no sense to handle it the way it currently is and punish or reward a player simply based on when they happened to be scheduled to play an opponent.

Jesus, DJ is just rolling through everyone.

No one else is even close.

People are going to be chasing him all year.  Even his putting is getting more and more solid.  This could be an epic year for him...

Jon Rahm is having a great year too. He has gone from competing in pro events while in College to a top player. I'm looking forward to the champ match. 

 

Quite the plug for adidas/TM. Those two bombing it dressed from head to toe in full giddyup. Ever club rat will be put buying the m1 and that putter this afternoon and  week.

Rahm's a lil bitch.  He should be a good foil to root against for years to come, supplanting Sergio (who I now like, oddly).

    • Is there a definition of what makes one the greatest golfer? Is it how many majors one has won? How many total tournaments one has won? Or is it who would win most matches if the two played each other. Maybe it's the length of their career mixed with the quality of their successes? If Tiger and Jack went head to head in the primes of their careers, say 10 matches, I would probably pick Tiger to win more then Jack. jmo.
    • To her driver?  She was always adjusting loft and draw bias so understandable she could have lost her head.  An adjustable wrench or a Torx screwdriver and it goes back on easily. (😁 Couldn't help myself)     (Just discovered you can italicize emojis!) ⛳🍷
    • You probably hit the nail on the head with your comment!
    • Shot 79 today, with 14 nGIR/GIR, 32 putts, and 1 penalty stroke. Low event round, nothing awful, and nothing exceptional. Changes from my last lesson basically took my bad hook misses out of play, which really helped. I felt confident that I could aim and know that if I missed, it would be a playable right miss. I'm still working up to full speed with the change, so hit a little shorter than normal (about 1 club loss of distance) today, but my home course is narrow and position/accuracy are more important than length on most holes. The penalty stroke came on the one hole where a right miss is penal, and my tee shot, which was headed a bit right, took a hard first bounce further right, and rolled into a creek. Made 4 up/down from nGIR, which was also helpful in scoring, including a nice one on the 18th hole, where I had about a 20 foot putt for par to break 80, and nailed it.
    • I’ve almost completed the main game of Hollow Knight. An incredible game that I knew nothing about before playing. It’s a Metroidvania like game and quite extensive. It feels like the Soulsborne of platformers. Somewhat in the vein of the Ori games, but more extensive and challenging. It’s not as difficult as games like Wings og Vi, Boshy and Roah, but takes some precise controlling. You can become a bit OP by collecting and upgrading, which makes it more manageable, not too different from Soulsborne.
