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.

    • The Smiths should obviously never be allowed to play tournament golf again in their careers. Violence is 100% NO anywhere ever. End of story really. 
    • Worst shot. I still lose balls almost every round, I've shot hundreds of ball OB, shanks, snaphooks and so on. I have two memories of bad shots that stands out a bit more than the rest. 1) This one happened when I played in my first ever tournament back in 2006, the Cresco Invitational at Miklagard GK (a sponsored event for business partners of Cresco). It was a stableford tournament with prices also for closest to the pin on 3 hole 1 and longest drive on hole 7. We all received a sleeve of Prov1s each before teeing off on the first tee (I didn't usually play with premium balls at that time), and looked forward to finally play a round with some fresh premiums. Hole 1 (now 7) on Miklagard back then, a 165 yards downhill par 3 with where you had to carry the ball 80 yards to clear some unplayable "salad", with a crowd, a formal starter to anounce you and the closest to the pin comp....It got to me! All the 3 fresh ProV1s ended up duffed in the "salad".....I won the event though, with a surprisingly low 35 points.  2) This one happened just a couple of weeks ago on hole 3 on my home course, a slightly uphill par 4 usually playing into wind. The tee is just next to the path players use to walk from the tee to the green on hole 2, so on this day the people who just made their approach shot to the 2nd green stopped just next to our tee, well actually 5 yards in front of it and 10 yards to the right (usually a safe place to stand) and made signals to me that it was ok for me to hit my drive. With the spectators I decided to step a little extra on it and hit it as hard as I could.....I hit the ball clean on the edge of the heel and it rocketed towards our audience, clipped the top of the bag (he was fortunately standing behind his bag) of one of them and rickochetted 150 yards into to the wilderness right of hole 2. If he hadn't stood behind his bag, that would have been really ugly....   Best shot:  This one was back in 2006 on hole 2 (now 11) of Solum GK, a short par 4, downhill, into wind, playing 280 yards with a back pin location on a very soft green. I hit my driver so clean. It landed a foot left of the hole and jumped two feet back for a tap in eagle. That was a slow motion moment for me, where I could feel my heartbeat and felt like time stood still for a couple of seconds while the ball was in the air. That feeling... I've holed out a couple of times from between 50 and 100 yards, once for eagle, but this one felt better for me.  I'm on a constant hunt for that feeling you get when you hit a perfect shot.   
    • I’ve been watching a lot of Eureka . Yes I know it’s old, however, I haven’t seen it in a while so I’ve been rewatching.
    • Game 3 & 4 should be some great hockey! I'm rooting for NYI.
