A couple quick thoughts/questions..........

First.....was Thursday/Friday televised?  I looked yesterday at the GC lineup and saw only the seniors tourney....if GC wasn't televising, who did?

Second......I think big frenchy moves the needle a bit, no?

Question.........Scottish Open or John Deere?......my answer is both, but that is a cop out

It might just be me, but does anyone else find themselves actively rooting against Bryson DeChambeau?  :whistle:

Roger....I figured it had to be on GC and was floored when I could not find a replay last night...

Yes, I do.  I'm not usually a passionate person but I really hate this guy and can't bring myself to watch/listen to this event or read golf websites because he'll be there. And that goes for future tournaments as well.

I hate the whole "golfing scientist" BS.  He didn't name himself that, but he actively embraced it.  He is not a scientist.  He's a college drop out with a few years of under graduate science courses.

The scientist could knock that in and steal this tournament.  

Hard not to root for him after that finish.

Golf Scientist has it in the bag now. No need to hit balks. You could tell Rodgers was leaking oil behind the sunglasses.

Congrats to Bryson...I know some don't like his methods or attitude but you can't deny that he deserved it with that finish.  He's played well his last few tournaments so this wasn't a total shock.

Curious to see what this brings down the stretch...

Remember, Einstein failed a high school math course!

No he didn't.

In 1935, a rabbi in Princeton showed him a clipping of the Ripley's column with the headline "Greatest living mathematician failed in mathematics." Einstein laughed. "I never failed in mathematics," he replied, correctly. "Before I was fifteen I had mastered differential and integral calculus." In primary school, he was at the top of his class and "far above the school requirements" in math. By age 12, his sister recalled, "he already had a predilection for solving complicated problems in applied arithmetic," and he decided to see if he could jump ahead by learning geometry and algebra on his own. His parents bought him the textbooks in advance so that he could master them over summer vacation. Not only did he learn the proofs in the books, he also tackled the new theories by trying to prove them on his own. He even came up on his own with a way to prove the Pythagorean theory.

270 yard 3-wood out of the rough onto the green to put for eagle isn't too shabby even for a scientist.

He didn't graduate from college as you've noted. He is not a scientist or physicist as some have eluded. That title goes to folks who've put in the work.

As a follower (and sometimes critic) of the OWGR - I was somewhat surprized to see that DeChambeau rose up to 81st in this weeks OWGR, the amazing part is that he has only earned points in 19 events. If you go to a players owgr page they list the top 20 events in which they have earned points for their career. And for Byson his 20th best owgr event is his 2017 US Open missed cut.

    • Caveat: I’m no doctor and this isn’t medical advice.  I’m dealing with C5-C6 disc herniation here since April. MRI also showed mild herniation in other cervical vertebrae.  Spine surgeon just wants to do simple procedure on me.  He also sent me to physical therapy and they’re shocked I’d consider surgery since I can do most things (not golf) pain free. They see surgery typically for people in more pain than I am in.  Speaking with my general practitioner, he suggested I speak with someone else who does injections, for my own peace of mind. Seems like surgeons wanna do surgery, physical therapists want to do PT. I’ll bet injectors recommend injections. And if I saw a chiropractor, they’d say they could get me back to working order! And the GP carefully avoids telling you what to do, so as not to contradict any specialist.   Thats a summary of where I am anyway. Also for what it’s worth, my physical therapists have done some things after the MRI showed herniation in the discs that have helped: 1. Dry needling, with electrical stimulation of the muscles that have tightened up. 2. Traction on my spine for 10-15min each visit that feels like it alleviates any compression in my cervixal spine. Ive been doing physical therapy since the spring, but once I added those elements after an MRI in December, I finally feel like I’m starting to progress toward pain-free full range of motion in my neck and shoulders. Knock on wood.  Good luck!!!
    • Hi Jon! Just throwing out an idea that has worked for me and head stabilization: Since you wear a ball cap, do swings where you look at some reference point right beyond the edge of the brim of your cap.  Don’t look at the ball. Just focus on that reference point and keep the brim of your cap right there.   My experience is that makes me aware of the 3D head movement as I move my body.  Do it a bunch of times in a row. Exaggerate the body movements but keep that brim focused on the same point.  You don’t even need a club. You can go through the body motions anytime you want. You look like an idiot if someone in the family sees you but hey, not like we don’t look like idiots anyway. Over time, it just became a steady head feel that lasted for me. 
    • Yes this is all true. I just feel Tiger was a more 'amazing' player than Jack ever was. I grew up watching Jack and have always been a big fan of his. Tiger was more explosive, a much better short game player, and well, he just dominated the fields where Jack just stayed smooth and consistent and carved out his victories. Jacks '86 Masters win was spectacular to watch. But again, he was solid and kept cool under pressure and made the shots when he needed to. But Tiger would go out there and just wipe the field clean. Jack never did that. I dunno. Both sides have strong points. Maybe had I been able to watch Jack as an older person I'd have a different perspective (born 1969). But for me, it's Tiger and probably will be for a very long time if not forever.
    • I don't like playing when it is too windy.  With that wind, I wouldn't even bother getting to a course.
