Poor Justin Rose.

Well I dunno If winning $10 million for playing like s*** warrants pity...and getting that remarkably lucky bounce on 18?

But I get it. I really like Rose and aside from Ryder Cup it’s really the only time I was kinda rooting against him. I think he’ll be fine....lol.

Thats true. I doubt Rose cares with that heavy wallet..lol. But even at the awards ceremony it seemed like Rose was an afterthought.

The $10M is for playing great all year.

 

Yes. But no player of Roses’ caliber likes to go out like that. He’s not hurting for money. He can look at the bright side...he won the most memorable FedEx Cup.

I think $10M is a lot of money not some consolation prize. It's not like he was guaranteed coming into East Lake. I think he was happy as can be, even proud, especially because of how he hung in there, driving on fumes bringing home the booty after his game deserted him.

I think what he did not just throughout the season but also at EL stand out alone on it's own considering Tiger's year and week.

I totally agree.  At one point after clinching the cup, Rose was smiling so broadly I thought he might hurt his face.

I don't.  Rose won the Fedex Cup and Tiger won the individual tournament.  Tiger went out of his way to verbally give Justin the spotlight during his short speech.  Super classy.  Justin returned the favor also.

One problem is they finally made the points scenarios pretty clear to understand finally.  I liked how they did it.  Just in time for them to change the format in a similar but possibly even more idiotic way.

Love the golf club trophy.

The girlfriend looks like a personal trainer.  Wonder how they met.  Smart of them to keep it low key.

I finally got almost what I wanted, Rory and Tiger in a playoff at a huge event.  The tournament itselfs is a big playoff, so that 'kinda' counts.  But I wanted them both on their A game and really neither was for the last round - though Tiger started off looking like it was going to happen.  Rory didn't even come close.  I'd wanted to see them both come in at like 10 under with Tiger winning in the end.

lastly, what would have happened if Tiger lost another couple storkes at the end and Billy won the tourney instead.  It wasn't clear if Justin's last hole would have mattered or not.....

Tiger noted specific players supporting him (above and beyond?) showing up at the green - Billy, little Justin, and Ricky?  He specifically reached out to two of them (Billy and JT) - of course amongst the ton of the crowd of well wishers...certainly his agent and girlfriend and the support team too...

I thought Rory getting into the final group would be to his advantage but it didn't turn out that way. Both he and Rose had difficulty finding the fairway all day on a course with the most penal rough I have seen this side of a US Open. Tiger hit it straight and was methodical. Welcome back!

I must admit I was rooting for Tiger to win it all, but for Rose to absolutely pound his drive on 18, after struggling most of the day, was cool to watch!  He's been so solid all year, he definitely deserved the cup and prize!

Yeah I wasn't shocked by Rorys play because he has habit of disappearing on final rounds.Justin on the other hand I was shocked at his bad play.Always saw him as a steady player but clearly 10 million dollar pressure got to him even though he's already rich.

Ratings up 206% from last year, 5.21 share vs 1.7.

Quote

NBC Sports Group’s final round coverage of the TOUR Championship on Sunday (3:00-6:15 p.m. ET) earned a 5.21 Overnight rating, as Tiger Woods claimed his 80th career victory, and his first in five years. The telecast is up 206% vs. 2017 (1.70).  It also becomes the highest-rated telecast in the history of the FedExCup Playoffs (2007-’18) and the highest-rated PGA TOUR telecast in 2018 (excluding majors). Coverage peaked from 5:30-6p (7.19) as Woods finished his round and as Justin Rose was being crowned the FedExCup champion, only trailing the peaks for The Masters (11.03) and PGA Championship (8.28) in 2018. The extended coverage window (1:30-6:15 p.m. ET) posted at 4.35 Overnight rating, which is the highest-rated TOUR Championship telecast on record (2000-’18).

Frankly, how many other golfers can check off this list?

  • Any Medal at the olympics - but we could make it Gold and stop here - unless any of our other top players won in some other event in their youth......
  • #1 rank in the world (for ANY period of time - Henrik has got to #2 I think) (AND Shortest possible tenure at #1 possible)
  • Major winner (we could add Top 5 (3) in all 4 majors if one likes)
  • FedexCup winner

Those first two stack the deck, I know......  Justin isn't hurting.  He's all alone here for some time I'm sure.  though a handful of guys compose a group that could join him after the next olympics....Tiger, Vijay, Jordan, Rory, Justin

    • Most of my rounds are at 4,200 ft, at sea level that 3W is probably 15ish yards shorter.  I’m not as long as it sounds, unfortunately.  I would utilize the 3W on more than just 14 tee shots (2nd shot on par 5s, choke down for some 190-230 shots, hit some low punch shots). I’m certainly not saying you’re thinking about anything wrong (as far as your game and selection), I was hung up on the “terrible option” comment.  I really like my driver and hybrid as well, if this were a 6 club challenge I’d swap out the 3W for the driver and hybrid all day.  But alas, we only get 5 clubs.
    • The handicap season is over. You should have told him you can warm your balls with whatever you want 😜
    • On my home course I’d take driver, 3-hybrid, 7-iron, SW, and putter. Driver is debatable, because I only hit it 3-4 times per round, so I could probably bring a 3W and drop 3-hybrid and rearrange the irons/wedges (3W, 5-iron, 8-iron, SW, putter). But driver gives me the best chance to score well on the par-5 holes (longest is 505 yards), and I wouldn’t want to give that up, since these holes are where I make birdie most often. 
    • Say a prayer for our state: From M-Live: Michigan reported 15,385 new COVID-19 cases, about 7,693 a day, and 351 deaths on Tuesday, Dec. 7 and Wednesday, Dec. 8. Over the last seven days, Michigan reported an average of 7,203 new, reported cases and 108 new deaths. These are up from 5,980 new cases per day and 71 deaths a week ago. State data, last updated Friday, Dec. 3, shows 65.8% of residents 12 and older have received at least a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The state is now seeing the greatest number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since the start of the pandemic. Previous highs were set in the spring of 2020.
    • Day 130: Cold and drizzly outside so continued working on cupped wrist backswing feel to keep club from going too much inside, and also working on transition move. Transition feels good in slow rehearsal, and okay striking balls at slow speed, but hasn’t translated to 100% speed well yet.
