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.

    • I'm out. Jim Rome show. He was famous for that saying on his radio show starting about 20 years ago, whenever he had a take on a topic. I'm sure glad we established that you aren't always sure what others are talking about. And clearly did hit a nerve based on your persistent reactions. I can tell because of how much you have mischaracterized about my post.  You sure have a lot of energy. if you only spent 1 minute on each of your posts you would have spent almost 49 days of your life writing or responding to posts. Take a break. I'm going to pretend that you had the last word and move on.  Hope that feels better. Again, please stay safe. Good luck!
    • Are you looking for new or 'kind of' new clubs? What is your budget?  I don't know if there is a right answer to your question as there are many options out there depending on what you are looking to spend.  I agree with getting fitted, but you may be pushed into the newer clubs, which isn't a bad thing, unless you have a limit on funds. I prefer Pings, so I would recommend the G410 or G710 irons as they are very forgiving, as well as the G400 or G410 Driver and Fairway woods. I think the first thing is to establish a budget, if there is no budget then it's all about what feels and fits you the best.  If you have a budget it will take some time researching what works best with the price you have.
    • Nope. Not sure what you're talking about with that one. You did not.
    • I love the new system. much easier to think about the max net bogey limit in registering scores. Like the frequent updates, especially when playing money games. much easier to see everyones true handicap and recent scores. Also more fun for my wife when we play, or acutally anyone who doesn't have the patience for the old system. She never was interested in posting and improving her handicap previously because there was always a range of equitable scoring maximum depending on your base handicap. now she is excited about posting and getting better. It's been a real positive foe my golfing life. on an added note, when I played in ireland last year it was impossible to figure true course handicaps. I think it will be easier now if I go back again. 
    • You're getting caught up in the wrong stuff. The PCC isn't "ahead of its time." In fact, it's intentionally "diluted" or "slowed down" early on. It's being applied at a diminished rate right now, in any direction. It's just an algorithm. Enough people played better - they posted better scores - that one day. That's all there is to it. Oftentimes it'll be the "weather," but sometimes maybe the holes will be in bowls, or cut in positions where it's easier to get close or make more putts. Or sometimes the ball will fly a bit farther. Or wind blows downwind on the longer holes. Or a bunch of people just play well on one day. There's no way of knowing. It's just an algorithm.
