Zach Johnson thinks they lost the golf course.  Have they tried looking where they left it last?

Did anyone else hear it said thirty people were looking for Dustin's ball, yesterday. 

Thursday;  he hit into the junk and even Tiger was helping him look.

What does it mean, "losing the golf course?" How is a golf course "gone?"

They need to check where they put it last.

Wait, was that right?  If Phil hadn't done that thing with his ball, he could have declared it unplayable and gone back to the previous putt?

He would've been able to replace his ball with only a one shot penalty. So he outsmarted himself and former USGA Pres said he would've DQ Phil.

Something tells me that Tiger is chuckling as the "Privacy" poops its way down the east coast.

Aside from Tigs terrible showing...

I am loving this. This is fantastic, and what I think of when I think of The Open. Once a year, toughest challenge in golf.

And now everyone has had a bogey today.

A thought:  maybe the exhaustion of the U.S. Open is why no one has won it after winning the previous week on the PGA Tour.  I wonder how players who played all four rounds the week before have fared historically.  Maybe I'll look into that someday.

You realize that "par" is an arbitrary number?

To me this is absurd. Noting likeable at a pinball course.

Trivia: in Tommy Aaron's first PGA Tour start as a professional, he was introduced on the first tee as Tommy Walker.

One of the best things about having a golf hole in my backyard is that I can choose the par for it.  It's a 158 yard par-10 and one of these days, I might birdie it.

Can anyone recall a player complaining about the course setup and then winning the tournament? Lots of players have a US Open on their career "bucket list" but I don't remember anyone wishing to achieve the goal of complaining about a US Open.

Also, Stenson/Rose being "on the clock" is stupid, I don't see why officials need to interfere.

Geez they think this is tough, the Open is at Carnoustie next month. Have you seen that course when the wind blows? Shinnecock is a teddy bear compared to what Carnoustie can play like.

There's a story that Gary Player used to tell everyone who would listen how much he loved the greens at whatever course they were playing.  "I love playing these slick, fast greens" he'd say one week, and "I love playing these slow, shaggy greens" the next week.  Probably better than letting the lack of perfect conditions into his head.

Anthony Kim would do similar whenever anyone complained about a fairway lie.  He used to play L.A. City munis growing up, so the worst lie on the PGA Tour probably looked perfect to him.

Why is it stupid?  They're a hole behind.  The proper place on the golf course is behind the group ahead of them, not in front of the group behind them.

    • When you’re caught intentionally violating the rules by using a prohibited substance, how can you be “overly apologetic”? Maybe appropriately apologetic...
    • To be clear, I expect to be paired with someone else when I show up as a single, especially on the weekends.  I have no desire to play as a single behind loads of foursomes. But as someone who is new to the area, I just don't have regular playing partners to play with (I did before I moved so I am not a total loner/loser). So at one of these courses (the preferred one of course), which with good weather is generally totally booked from opening to at least 2 p.m., my choice is either to not play or to book as a twosome.  If you book a twosome, they have no problem booking another twosome at the same time. Why is pairing a single with a twosome or threesome so problematic. To also be clear, this is a city course.  My house is way above average value for the city, so I am paying much more than average taxes to support this course.  Yet I'm being denied access to public facilities for being a single.   And if you're a public course denying access to singles, you are missing out on business. Force pair them up (sometimes you meet people to play with next time) and if they book as 4 but are really 2, charge them for it (or maybe be better to tell them NEXT TIME you will have to charge them for it). 
    • I hit them for a night to see what they were like.  I really liked the feel of them.  Would probably go in my bag if I hadn't bought 765's in 2017.  Sending you a PM as well. Pulled a grip off the 5 iron and finally saw the etching on the 4.  These are a KBS Tour stiff shaft.
    • A three-month suspension for weed? Dustin Johnson, a three-time offender, got 6 months for cocaine. I also find Garrigus's overly apologetic tone vexing. Maybe there's something else behind this? PGA Tour suspends Robert Garrigus for violating drug policy Robert Garrigus has been suspended by the PGA Tour for violating the Tour's anti-doping program. In a statement, Garrigus says the drug that...    
    • I agree with determining what your end game is and go from there. From my personal experience, I wish I would have gotten lessons from the very beginning. Learning to play just by playing led me to some very bad habits that are taking forever to get out of. I recommend lessons and also suggest Evolvr. I am currently working with Evolvr on my swing.
