With the Tour Championship less than 10 days away...here is a good way to start the tournament conversation....the breakdown of what each player needs to have happen if they are to win the Fedex Cup.

Season finale almost underway. Friday tee times will reflect scores rather than being jumbled from Thursday, like they normall just do for Saturday and Sunday. So we'll see new pairings tomorrow.

Funny situation with Schauffele that I haven't seen before.

He hits a ball into the OB fence and it bounces back, but ends up close enough to the fence that he doesn't get enough space for a swing. He sets up left-handed and does some practice swings, then asks the rules official if he can take a drop since when he's trying to hit it left-handed, there's a sprinkler head interrupting him (I didn't see if it was stance or club). He called in a second opinion and was allowed to take relief. After dropping, he's now in a position where he can hit the ball right-handed and proceeds to do so and ends up making a bogey.

Not an action you are able to to very often since you need the obstruction close enough to interrupt, but certainly useful to know for the pros.

Tiger starts off with a bogey. Tradition is tradition. Gets it back with a birdie on five, one of his longest putts today.

The greens are quick and the rough looks a bit tough and grabby. GIR might be king this week.

A flashback to 2002, where Tiger and Phil tee'd off in the last group at the Tour Championship:

Pretty decent stuff - glad to see Tiger and Rory in the mix.  And Rickie.

Bryson making a mess of it.

Lots of golf remaining.

 

And this - just because

Tiger got his bogey out on the first hole and delivered a great 65 round after dropping a 27 feet putt for eagle on 18. Loved watching that one go in!

310 driving distance. 10/14 fairways. 14/18 greens. 1.7 putts per GIR. 2/2 sand saves and 100% scrambling. Gained strokes on all stats.

Currently tied with Fowler. If the result stands, they will head out in the last group tomorrow. He went out on fire last tournament, then cooled down on Friday. Let's see if he can keep it going this week.

Now that he's in the Peach State, wearing a peach colored shirt, things are going peachy. 😛

Didn't watch the telecast, but based on the few swings I've seen on social media, looks smoother.

    • 72 last week at TPC Summerlin from the TPC tees (6400) in maybe one of the coldest conditions I've ever played in. 71 today back home, hit 15 greens. Missed four birdie putts within 5ft and got a bad break where I drove it into a bunker and it plugged in the lip (made bogey). Not bad for the range being closed and only getting to practice once this week and not much last week either. This was my drive on 15, and it wasn't like it was a high fade, solid medium flight draw.  
    • Yeah it was a dumb move PR wise to not be very generous with the bonus.  Can't really compare the usual rate with that week with Ortiz, completely different situations. John Wood is there for him every minute of every week, scouting the course beforehand, getting yardages, mapping greens and paying for his own travel. They can also act as emotional "support" and the good ones figure out when to give it and when to hold back. Ortiz is nowhere close to building up that "sweat equity" to earn 10%. If I was John Wood I would have been very insulted if my guy paid a temp caddy 120K.  
    • “How much should you pay?” questions tend to select responses. How much should you pay for a car? Obviously the guy who paid over a million for his McLaren doesn’t think everyone should; that’s the whole point of having one. Likewise, the guys with the $2k custom Scottys want something exclusive.   So it makes sense that most of the responses are $300 or less. If you just want to make putts, and know basically what you need in terms of length and style (mallet, blade, etc.), I don’t think you need to spend more than $100 on ebay. I’ve sold several perfectly serviceable and respectably branded putters for less.   Personally, I paid $350 for my Evnroll ER5, which I love. I like it so much that I’m going to spend even more for the black one when it becomes available. It was a subtle difference between the ER5 and my Ping Tyne ($189, I think), that it replaced. But given a choice, I’d choose the Evnroll every time. I can’t afford — and have no desire — to run with the big dogs when it comes to putters. And if I couldn’t afford a $350 putter, I think I’d do ok with any of the ones that I sold. But it’s a hobby, and it could be worse. I could be collecting large stationary engines.
    • If you have enough bounce you could have the 52 bent to 50. 10, 15 bucks perhaps.
    • 1. "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge: Consistently practicing and posting my streak. Making it a habit to maintain my skills and level developed over the years. 2. Bogey Player: By end of 2019 play in Texas and score at least three games under 90. Focus areas:
      Develop better course management skills, game-strategy and focus on the long term development instead of thinking short term and how far I can hit today and how beautiful my swing does (not) look. (Note to self for Jan. 2020: Relax and enjoy the journey with a vision; do not rush just to win)
