2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

So I am going to root for Louis Oosty. A Louis win will bring me a box of Snells so I am a bit biased... :-)). Having said that a JT or KK win will not break my heart at all. 

I was listening to a discussion on GC last night with Chamblee, Duvall and Nobilo talking about parity in golf and set ups like this reduce the chances of having a stars heavy leader board. They compared it to how tennis majors almost always get treated much more by presence of Federer, Nadal, .. etc. on the weekends. I am not sure I have an opinion. Its always enjoyable to see a good grind regardless of who it comes from but good arguments on both sides of the coin.

Is Kevin Kisner chewing? What a doofus

It looked like every time CBS did a shot of Kisner waiting around, he was in the process of dropping one big, slow loogie. What is it with these guys that have to spit all the time?I know that Tiger did on occasion, and Sergio made a mess out of one hole a few years ago. Do they have some sort of disease or is this just a disgusting habit they can't get rid of?

Kisner chews, hence the abundant spitting.

Tiger has allergies.

Sergio was being a douche.

Don't use the wifi. Use your phone.

I'm at @NatalieB's Drive, Chip, and Putt Sub-Regional today. She doesn't even "play" until 1:30, and it's over two hours away, so hopefully I'll get to see the back nine. :-)

Let us hear how @NatalieB does.  It'd be interesting to hear how the qualifiers are structured too.  Either in her thread, or maybe the tournament play thread...?   Wish her luck!

I'll watch but with this leaderboard my only hope is to see a winner who charges from a couple back as the leaders disintegrate.

I think it might be a case of which player leaks the least oil coming in but I hope not.  I wanna see a player step up and win the thing.  Pins look tough.  

Surprised they didn't offer more accessible pins to provide perhaps more drama.

The putter brushing against your shirt is not considered anchoring

More on the rules situation with Poulter this morning:

http://www.golf.com/tour-news/2017/08/13/ian-poulter-official-during-rules-disagreement-you-absolutely-got-be-kidding-me

I think they made the right call in the end, given the witness and the shape of the hazard.

Also...not to keep harping on poor announcing, but not every bad shot on a Sunday is because of "nerves" or "pressure" or a player "getting tight." So annoying.

Liking the run by Rickie, but I think it's too little, too late. Pretty typical for him, unfortunately. 

I'll take Hideki, not that that's going out on a ledge.

It's going to come down to who avoids blowing up on the Green Mile, but the winner is going to reach at least 6-under. Rickie's not getting that close.

I expect Matsuyama is going to take control, but if he doesn't, my dark horse is Francesco Molinari.

Honestly, it won't be as bad as ours. The BBC have got the rights back from Sky for the PGA and it's creating quite a debate here - the coverage from Sky is light years ahead, but the BBC is free coverage and therefore will reach more people. However, the BBC commentary team has an average age of 67 and it's just abysmal. Ken Brown is decent and knows his stuff, but his on-course segments are seriously limited. We basically just hear Alliss moan about people wearing collarless shirts, having weird-shaped putters and not knowing who people are.

As a happy aside, I really enjoyed the Justin Thomas putt eventually dropping! Good work from AimPoint - eventually.

You were saying? 5 under is not looking bad right now.

There's a five-way tie for the lead at 7-under, and four of them still have 14 and 15 to play. They aren't all going to drop two or more strokes coming in.

Fair point - hadn't seen how many were at 7 under! It's really moved on in the last hour or so.

Not a very timely flub there by Hideki. Oof.

Of course, I say that, and three of the leaders immediately make bogey, and Molinari short-sides himself on 16.

    • Grubs pair well with a nice sauvignon blanc.
    • I would say their are very similar clubs. JPX825 pro are in the JPX line which is tailored more towards mid to high handicap golfers. Though single digit golfers will find their clubs appealing. The offsets are nearly identical. I would bet that JPX 825 pro are slightly larger club heads. They probably have a slightly lower CG and slightly more MOI. Mostly because their lofts are slightly stronger to account for the higher ball flight. I would say the JPS 825 Pro would give you slightly more forgiveness on off center hits. If you think both of them look good, then maybe you go with the one that might help you out on some mishits. Another thing to consider is how the clubs fit your swing. The stock JPX-825 Pro golf shaft is the Dynamic Gold Dynalite. Which would be a golf shaft that is much lighter than the stock shaft in the MP-53. I believe Mizuno MP line comes with the standard Dynamic Gold, not the dynalite.  
    • Clearly the influx in information on food products have not decreased the amount of food people eat. Obesity is going up. I don't think people get past the front label on the product. I think calorie information is good on single use items. On a bottle of ketchup, it's not important. Calorie per serving size doesn't help when people don't even understand service size. There is a lot we are still finding out about weight loss. I will contend the best way is to eat more lean protein and veggies. Look how easy it is to go to Wendy's and grab a double with fries and a coke and eat 1500 calories. Which for many is 60-70% their calorie intake for the day. Then they sneak in a candy bar later, knock off another 10%. 1 candy bar is near 10% the required calorie intake. You can eat a 1lb steak and a baked potato and have less calories than that meal at Wendy's. You'll end up not wanting to eat for the next day.    
    • @JonMA1 I'll be there.  Let us know the tee time you get.
    • Wont be anything special at that price. I found that on cheapo new clubs that the shafts are really soft and too flexible. Dont get me wrong, some cheap clubs can be excellent. I bought a set of Hippo Beast bi-metal irons 3-SW for £40 as an experiment with heavier shafts. They are the same age as the Wilson Di9's i had been gaming and in top condition. They are superb clubs....ended up selling the Wilsons and using the cash on a new Cleveland putter. Might be better looking for second hand premium or towards that end of the quality scale, but on the other hand for $19.99, if its crap then you havent lost a great deal.
