2017 D&D Invitational

Pretty tight leaderboard with some big names, going out in threesomes due to weather threats.  Should make for some good watching.

Simpson has been trending this year of late.  He's back on with his putting after several changes since the anchoring ban.  I'm rooting for him.

I also like the D&D shops.  Ridiculously high dollar, but some good eats.

Well, if it couldn't be Simpson, I'm happy for Kisner.  Lots of guys were in the hunt.  Kisner was dialed in.

Season's really beginning to heat up.

Tweet and photo out there of ZJ with a meltdown after being put on the clock, I'm reading that he threw his bag or clubs (or both).
Looking for video - anyone on TST with a clip from Z "TinCup" Johnson

Zach said that he was mad over being put on the clock & making a double bogey. He said he was taking his putter out of the bag and it got stuck on several other clubs, he pulled the putter out with force and several other clubs went flying.

Believable story as I've had that happen to me as well.

As slow as the tour plays, how the hell does anyone ever get put on the clock is what I want to know. Jesus, the waiting they go through must be excruciating sometimes. Gotta slow the pace so the camera's can get all the big names on tv... I hate that.

I wish the sponsors, Dean & DeLuca, had kept "Colonial" in the name.  I understand they want the biggest advertising bang for their bucks but it is hard for me to recognize exactly what the Dean & DeLuca Invitational is.  Two weeks ago, if someone had said they were looking forward to the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, I would have been hard pressed to even say within which state the tournament was being held.

It is not just Dean & DeLuca, either.  CareerBuilder Challenge anyone?  Or Genesis Open? 

Time for my nap, I guess.

I still enjoy watching the Crosby Pro-Am, and the Los Angeles Open (or what ever they want to call them)
Now get off my lawn!!!

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
