Faldo already giving the jacket to Rory. I think Reed is probably better off playing with Rory tomorrow than he would be otherwise. He likes that underdog role and showed in the Ryder Cup he's not afraid of Rory. He also has a 3 shot advantage helping him. 

Hoping Reed wipes the floor with the field tomorrow.

Hoping Reed hangs in their and wins. I am glad he is not wearing those pants with the stoopid looking back pockets anymore.

I hope Reed and Rory fall back and put a bunch of guys in play. I just don't want a snooze fest in cruise control.

Buy you almost never get that. There can be  a swing of 8 shots on the back 9. And a 2 shot lead on 18 tee is no guarantee of a win.

Well...Faldo sees it that way because he’s used to winning by the leader folding completely. Faldo pulled a “Danny Willet” win on all three of his wins. Not just your average slip and Faldo taking the win, Faldo was served up historical chokes by the leader to get his wins.

 I would call the “Hoch choke” the only one of Faldo’s 3 wins where he truly backed into a victory. The other two no doubt he had some help but he also played great rounds and made a strong charge. Most don’t realize in the year that Norman collapsed that Faldo shot a flawless 67. It was a great round of golf.

Mcllroy and Reed to get into a battle which costs them a few Bogeys  ..letting Rahm / Fowler to close the gap.... 18th equal -15 from the four >>>>

I haven't read through to see if somebody mentioned this but Chamblee sucking snot up his nose during the entire Live From show is incredibly annoying.

Ray Floyd choked his guts out in 1990. Huge gift to Faldo from a guy with 4 majors before that.

“Some help” With Norman? No it was more than that. Norman could’ve shot even par and won. That’s not asking for anything amazing. Norman shot a 78. I agree a 67 was (is) a great Sunday round...but when you’re down 6 strokes...something miraculous has to happen....and it certainly did.

Welcome to the board - and great point.  One of the worst things Reed and Rory can do is get into a match play mentality, particularly early in the round.

Yes, two pretty big EGO's on the course you just know it's going get hot out there and just maybe for the guys behind they push a few shots ... I hear if REED scores sub 70 last day it will be the first time in masters history ever a player scores sub  on all four rounds >>> I don't personally think he will be the first

If that's the logic being applied, some might say that five of Faldo's six majors were "gifts." Does that make him a one time major winner?

But this is great news for Mr. Willett. All he has to do is play himself into contention on a regular basis and maybe he can become the greatest English golfer since Sir Nick Faldo.

    • @ajl, it seems to me that what you're asking isn't about the performance or design differences between one set of irons from one manufacturer versus another, but simply what the difference between a premium set of golf clubs and a generic or a knockoff set is? The answer, as in all products in life, comes down to quality. A premium manufacturer cares if their manufacturing process produces X% variation from club to club which can result in differences in performance from set to set. A clone company won't and they know their customers don't, so they don't invest the time or money into having higher manufacturing tolerances.

    • Seems like he has a good support group and yeah, opening up must be cathartic.  Good on him for addressing it, young kids and all.
    • Good for Bubba to speak out about his problems, and it's even better that he's found his own way of dealing with his anxiety.  What struck me as somewhat odd is that there's not much mention of any sort of professional therapy.  From my own experience, I've found it quite helpful, though damn expensive.
