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. :-)

Damn it...I’ll shut up.

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?

His instructor.

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.

    • Particularly when that slow group is a couple of serious A-holes.
    • Not really a good option when the teesheet is packed.  They would have to let every group behind them play through. That's why I ask how many of y'all have marshaled a tough course on a busy day . . . . you will hear every excuse in the book.  One of my favorites was a cigar-smoking, smart-talking older guy who had 3 young bucks in his group.  They had held up a 2-some all day, and at the third visit from me, on the 12th tee, he read me the riot-act with some choice, colorful words, saying it was the course's fault for allowing 2-somes to play.  He said he paid twice what they paid, so he was playing the way he wanted. I went back and talked to the 2-some, a husband and wife, and told them they would have to go around that foursome. Not long later I saw them at their car.  They were not upset, but they quit and came in because they did not want to upset the 4-some. See, that's when  I'd like to be able to pull out my tablet and see if they wanted to re-play at a discount. BTW, some 2-somes, often couples, won't book unless we block the other two slots at their tee time.     Wow!  Never heard of that, no-hole-skipping rule. & funny how some slow groups speed up when you play through.
    • Not sure about the other two, but I'm not technically allowed to do that. Mind you, nobody would have caught me if I did. One of the many rules we sign off on with a City of Dayton, OH privilege pass includes not skipping holes. For better or worse, I tend to be rule follower. I suppose given the layout of the course and my being on foot, it would have been a bit awkward anyway. We make the move, they speed up and we hit the next tee at the same time.
    • My instructor tells me that the more golf I play, the more I need to take lessons, not just to get better, but to make sure I don’t develop any bad habits unknowingly. I play 4-5 rounds a week and see my instructor every other week for swing checks. I have bad days on the course and will get frustrated - I usually stop golfing and see my pro right away instead of trying to figure it out myself.  Do you have anyone you are working with? I find it beneficial to have lessons regularly. I see it like a car tuneup - car is running fine but you still get an oil change/service regularly just to make sure things are doing well. Same thing with golf.
    • It was 75° the day before yesterday, and it's 10° now. Why didn't you guys skip a hole and go around the ball-shaggers?
