Maybe. Conflicting info right now.

We'll find out the first part tomorrow.  If the first part is accurate, the second part obviously is too.

I would have liked him to have edged out Zach Johnson, but we can't all get everything we want.

Proof OWGR is broken: Tiger Woods (six top 12s in last 10 starts) is going to miss the final stop at Firestone while Satoshi Kodaira (outside Harbour Town W, zero top-15s in 12 starts) tees it up.

Not the WGR's fault.  It's a two-year window, and Tiger was 600th or something until this year. 

To avoid situations like this, the WGC's should include players who finished in the top 10 in the current year's majors.  Most of them are probably in anyway, so it would only add one or two players to the field.

Congrats to Molinari for a well played final round. I like majors that end like this. Low scores in relation to overall par, and lots of golfers in the mix right up to the 72nd hole.

And the europeans say WE are bad fans when it comes to ettiquette 

I haven't watched the coverage, but are you damning them all from one guys actions?

I've always liked Molinari, happy to see him win when it wasn't to be Tiger's day. He played a great bogey - free round. Tough to get back from double and bogey for Tiger, both mentally and in shots.

Some tough decisions going to have to be made in regards to the Ryder Cup team. I'm not sure how today's results impact the standings, but not counting today, I would imagine Tiger will be a Captain's pick and Schauffele probably a captain's pick. I would also think Webb Simpson would be a pick. That leaves one pick between Phil, Kuchar, Kisner, Cantlay, Finau, Zach Johnson just to name a few.

By the way, all 3 majors this year have been amazing. Lots of drama in all 3 with pretty star-packed leaderboards. Feels like each one has gotten better. Pressure on the PGA to make it 4-for-4.

Congrats to Molinari, who is in tremendous form.

Happy to see a European win ahead of the Ryder Cup, and it's also nice to see an end of the recent US domination of the majors.

Lots of points for Rose, and he will be snapping at DJ's heels for OWGR #1 👍

Yeah, I was just looking at the points list.  It includes earnings from majors and WGCs in 2017, so I don't think Tiger can crack the top ten unless he wins both the WGC and the PGA.  Which is no longer out of the question, if his upward performance trend continues.😁

I doubt he needs to win both to make the list, winning the PGA (and some respectable finishes elsewhere) would probably put him there given it's double points, though he would need to win it. That , or a string of very,very good finishes. Realistically, it's unlikely he makes the main list. I hope though that he makes the top 12, so that, should he be a captains pick, there can be no argument he isn't there on merit.

That one-hit wonder that I didn't want winning ----hated it when Shaun Micheel won the PGA.  Rather see the generations best win the big ones and not the one (Paul Lawrie) that you won't hear from again......

8 time winner and 2 time Ryder Cup player, including a spanking of Snedeker at Medina. Paul Lawrie was no Ben Curtis.

So much for polite Euro fans. 

Who says he was British or European? And it was one person.

Molinari playing spoiler to...pretty much every other story line which would be better. Bummer 

 

He has been the best player in the world for the past 2 months. It's a great story. His putting today was fantastic (as well as his tee to green game).

I'm extremely disappointed in Tiger....to be that conservative off the tee and then have it backfire even more? If you're going to lay up then you HAVE TO HIT THE MOTHEREFFING FAIRWAY!!!!!!!

It's times like this that I say he needs more of Rory's "eff it, I'm hitting driver" mentality.

SMDH. Ugh.

    • I spent quite some time auditioning hybrids until I settled on a 5 and 3 wood.  Once I'd done that it became a matter of choosing a hybrid that suited, or fit, the space between my irons and fairways.  It isn't, to my thinking, what hybrid is best...it's which hybrid is most like the clubs on either side.  I want the weight, and flex, to be similar to my 4 iron and 5 wood.  In other words:  I'd rather fit one club to the set than craft a set around one club.
    • Day 133.  Had a little bit of time, wish I had more.  Did the 6' putting drill I've been doing;  this time, I hit 7/12 on the first go-around!  And then 3 of 5 the second one.  It was fantastic.   I then set up 8 roughly equidistant stations from 9' out.  First go-around, sank none.  Second go-around, sank 4.  Hey, 4/8 from that distance is great, and for that matter, 4/16 isn't bad from that distance for me.  Took me a bit more time to sink the rest.   You might wonder why I'm doing so much putting lately.  It was an emergency and I only have n=1 rounds where it has looked good since declaring the emergency.  Also, I had to pack up my home golf room so I can't practice full swing in limited time as I used to (yes, there are drills I could do that don't involve hitting a ball).  Not worry, plenty of full swing work before too long.  
    • During the club fiasco of 2019, after FedEx lost my golf clubs and I was waiting for Cobra to build me a new set of F9 One Lengths (5i - SW), I made a mistake. I bought into hype. I went down and tried out a new set of hybrids. Callaway Epic Flash. The reviews were that they were long and forgiving. Well, true and sort of true. I had a little problem with "over fading them", but with a draw setting to make them a little more upright, that seemed to fix that and I was hitting them long and straight in the shop. Unfortunately this did not last. I do not like them. I have zero confidence with the 5H. The "over-fade" with the 4H and 3H is back. I did not have this issue with my Bio Cell hybrids. The Bio Cells were not as long, but I could hit them straight in a neutral face setting. They were also heavier in the club head. D6 vs D0. I think the weight was further back in them too for more forgiveness. What makes this a mistake is that I used them as part of the funding for the Epic Flash Hybrids. I have a 60 day playability guarantee on the Callaways. Basically if I don't like them I can return them. I'm going to return them, but I'll need a set of hybrids. I'll bring my 6i with me. So do you guys have any suggestions for any that are easy to get in the air and tend to keep a relatively narrow dispersal pattern?
    • Day 27 Worked with my weighted club, but this time, I placed a football between my arms and held it in place as I focused on my takeaway.  Really trying to keep my width, and prevent my arms from folding as I have had a tendency to allow in the past.
    • I got up for the 3am start on Friday. Had the dvr record todays start. Probably should have done this in reverse order. Still very enjoyable. Love the format and the US vs Europe. I still have some hope for Decembers Pres. Cup. Maybe that team can be somewhat competitive.   Solheim and Ryder Cup still a must watch for me.
