Tiger and I would like to thank you all for your support. It's been a long and arduous road, and a year ago we weren't sure where we would be at the end of this season. But you all believed in us, and

WOOOO! After five years.

I guess you're right. It just seems weird to me.

Part of what might help you feel better about it:  the better someone plays during the season, the less the stars have to align for them to win one here beyond them winning (or at least doing pretty well).  There's a reason Tiger has these scenarios he needs to happen to get the cup, while Bryson could have just won the tournament (easier said than done of course) to get the cup.

Good for Rose! He's had a poor day at the job. That final birdie made up for it.

It's such a strange tournament and playoff system. Tiger wins it, and Rose gets the biggest check.

Weren't you just complaining that Tiger could win the cup by winning one tournament? Now it's Rose winning. Rose winning the FedEx Cup spanning the entire season. Tiger wins one tournament where everyone started equal on Thursday. It's only reasonable Rose gets the bigger check.

You can't have playoffs like they do in American Football. Then the final tournament would just be two players.

Incredible pictures from Atlanta now. Look at that crowd! Tiger for his win number 80! What a way to do it.

I wasn't complaining about Tiger. If you look back I said it's weird how a guy could win the entire playoff with his first win of the season. Then I said the Final has a strange feel. One guy wins, another gets a bigger check. It's just so different from any other sport's playoff system.

The Monster Energy Cup works on a similar premise.

    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
    • I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left.  I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait).    I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 wood...  Thoughts?    Yes I’m down to a 1.5 handicap, and shouldn’t really need equipment help... but I’m an adult and don’t know everything.
    • Similar to last  year I am looking to break 90 and then eventually 85 this year. My previous round was a 92 and I am improving.
