Is anyone else watching like I do? I watched the women last week (it was not quite as exciting as the past few years), but hopefully the men's event will be as good as recent years.

I recorded it and am nowhere near that far @Vinsk. :-) Just don't tell me who makes the cut down to 8 or wins the individual please. :-)

Yes, I watched most of it and found it pretty entertaining.  The playoff sure had its twists.  That lie near the tree sure had bogey written all over it.  That he manage par and Brock having to make a lengthy putt for birdie to win was good stuff. Been busy all day today and could not watch the team match play. Hopefully the Cowboy's keep it rolling.

Two words come to mind, wow and clinic.  This certainly gives a whole new meaning to Roll Tide.  Sure, OSU is playing on their home turf with their fans, but that still requires performing - and they most certainly did that.  I suspect that Justin Thomas will be producing a new TV show about the Alabama golf team.  I wonder what they will call it? :-D

I enjoyed keeping up with the season and the men’s & women’s tourney. I have liked the ‘get your team to perform’ on the stroke play to keep playing as 1 of the 8. Read an article criticizing that because high rated team missed the cut but that’s part of the comp, and I like it. 

The cowboys showed up today and Bama didn’t. Tough looking course, I also saw (on tv) the final round of the SEC tourney and that course looked pretty incredible. Work really does get the way of playing all these courses. 

Aloha,

It helped, I'm sure, that it was their home course. They HAVE to be more comfortable hitting all of the shots there.

Surprised to see no tweets from Rickie Fowler about the W.

Yeah where’s Ricky’s congrats? OSU. Really put it on. I’ve played KC...back in the early 90’s. My best friend’s dad from college was the course superintendent then.  We usually played Lakeside where the Cowboys used to play but moved to KC in 1994 I think. I remember playing once where he shot 66. I shot 87. Anyway, congrats to OSU!

Oh yea, I was a bit surprised the #1 team in the country gets to play on their home course. Golf is a lot different than having the home court in say basketball, whatever happened to a neutral field? ( guess that’s not an expectation) so when Auburn makes it to #1, if ever, will they hold the tourney at the Grand National on Opelika? Stanford? They gotta nice course? I don’t know college golf that well, but I have enjoyed watching a few games.

Congratulations to OSU, they played well.

They don't do that in golf. A former champion, at D1, D2, D3, is the host team.

How about that ‘waggle’ that Matt Wolff does? Wonder how that came to be his routine?

Was that said? I was wondering if he’s just done that always and coach went with it or if that was just the way his instructor was able to get Matt to swing the way he thought was best for him?

Doesn't need to have been said. His instructor does that with almost everyone. Look at his Instagram channel.

The interview with George Gankas sounds more like Matt is a bit of a Bubba. GG says he came to him around age 13 but he said his path was different but he made it sound as though Matt was already doing that initial move when he met him. Swing looks painful. I hope he can avoid injury. Looks like a tough swing to do after age 30 at least with that speed.

Matt was upright then, I guess, but not the “twitch” thing.

    • Aim further right             (it's a joke, calm down ) easyjay i hope you work it out, no worries
    • Do your hips move/turn when you putt?
    • I was a teaching pro once upon a time for just a few years. Not enough money in it and I went out and found a 'real job' as they say. Of course many things can cause your putting problem, everything from set up to follow through. Everyone perceives things differently and understands things differently. Some are visual, some or auditory, others are......well suffice it to say everyone is different and what works for one does not for the other. Best advise I have is see an experienced teaching pro for the help you need. That all said..... I found many right-handers who miss left a lot have a problem with an over active left hand. Assuming you are right handed, try practice putting with just your right hand. Completely take your left hand off the club. Are you still missing left? If not then it could be an over active left hand. Many people have learned to correct their slice by getting their left hand more active in their full swing. I'm not saying this is the way to correct a slice, I'm just saying many people have self taught themselves to mediate their slice by flipping their left hand. Then when they go to putt their left hand wants to get involved too much.  Assuming you are aimed properly, either your path is out-to-in pulling it slightly, or your cub face is closed at address or maybe a little of both. My advise above is just a guess for you based on my experience teaching putting for a few years. A club pro will properly diagnose the problem for you, for a price of course, and give you the drills necessary to remedy your problem.  Good Luck!  
    • Thank you for this answer from Decision 20-2c/4.  That explains this situation well, and yes, the porta-john and fence were all part of a TIO restroom area set up for spectators. In this instance, I would say that the rules official judged (prematurely in my opinion) that the ball was moving closer to the hole and would not return, so he picked it up for Kevin to place it.  It was clearly not more than 2 club lengths.  It was about 24-30 inches to the right of where it was dropped (facing the hole), and about 3-4 inches closer to the hole as it was slowly jiggling along the cart path toward the hole, but occasionally bouncing to the right.  If allowed to continue, it likely would have continued closer to the hole and not returned, but on concrete cart paths I've seen balls change directions quite drastically. I think what surprised me the most was seeing the official stop the ball (at the displeasure of the player), instead of allowing the player or caddie to make that decision.  IF the ball DID jiggle/bounce back those few inches and come to rest on the cart path within 2 club lengths of the drop and no nearer the hole, I think Chappell would have gotten another drop for relief from the cart path, correct? (Or does complete relief from the TIO mean complete relief from all other relief situations?) If the NPR at that point was on the right side of the cart path, it would have been a huge break for Kevin who then would have had a chance to take a drop with a clear shot to the green (no tree obstructions from that point.) I will add this... the rules official was very gentlemanly throughout the whole ordeal.  He was very patient with Kevin who was frustrated with his own play and the situation and who at one point very strongly stated to the official, "No, you are wrong here!"  But while Kevin was frustrated with the whole thing, he also maintained a sense of humor.  As he left, he said to the spectators, "Nice to meet you all again," as he had been hooking it frequently on Sunday.
    • Played last Wednesday and went to gym after. Dropped a 45lb plate on my foot and had some significant bruising. Haven’t touched my clubs since. Hoping to be healed enough that I can at least go to the range and hit some balls tomorrow although considering playing a full round before work at noon, injuries def hurt the ability to practice/play!
