Seeing some reports that the USGA is mowing some of the fescue - seems like some of the complaints have been heard.

I think I'm the only one who didn't like it, at least on TST.  

 

I wasn't actively posting last year, but I did not like it at all.

McIlroy saying fairways are widest it's ever been. Something like - If 156 of the best players in the world are having problems, what are we doing here?

So that's what flash mob landscaping looks like. :-D This is what it looks like when the lawns of all the houses on your street get speed mowed.

TIL the hashtag #fescuerescue

I'm wondering if this has been the intent all along (let it grow and thicken, and then cut to the intent of the tournament a couple days prior.)

Instead of rules officials walking with groups, this article says the USGA will have 2 rules officials stationed on all non-par 3 holes, and located in the strategic positions to help with rulings, should they arise.

I just read a facebook post from pga.org that the usga cut the fecscue due to the heavy rains making it unplayable.  I don't know, it kind of seemed unplayable from the beginning, but that's all a part of the fun I suppose.

They probably have some of their social media staff scanning your Twitters, FBs, Instagrams to hopefully get in front of any potential problems/control the message to a certain degree.

Its not off topic.

They probably send it off to be baled, the local cheese cows will be eating good for a bit.

Kind of doubt that. Baling is done on site. And there's been no time to rake it, let it dry, and then bale it. If you bale wet hay it will start to ferment inside the bale, heat up, dry out, and maybe catch fire. Been quite a few barn fires started that way!

Good point. I was going to say you need a weed eater or something that the blades won't seize up to cut that stuff.

    • Worked on my weight shift today with 7 iron, SW and driver. I’ve been focusing so much on other pieces, this one slipped. Below are the drills.  
    • Maybe they don't bring that, but looking at current OWGR and who is out of the top 20 that could reasonably make their way in, the list is pretty short outside of US players. I don't see any up-and-comers from outside of the US other than maybe Hatton (who is already inside of that mark) and Cam Smith (still won't be playing for EU) that I foresee being inside of the top 25 in 2 years time. I suspect that the US will have another blistering OWGR advantage in 2 years, though I don't think they will put on this kind of show in Rome. Kokrak, Zalatoris and Homa could get inside of that top 21 mark, possibly replacing US or non US players. I am curious to hear who you think comes into the top 21 that is a non-US player in the next 2 years.
    • Day 337: Worked on a weight forward drill today with 7 iron, SW and driver. Filmed it and got some MEVO data with the SW.

    • Just 3 birdies needed to complete the challenge, time is running out though. One hole the 15th I have never had a birdie on it. It is the index 3 I think and it is a long par 4 with the toughest green on the course. Fingers crossed I complete it this year. My best year since I've started playing without doubt.
