Props to Tiger,  I'm one who said 3 years ago it would never happen again.  Payin out $2,000 because of it, fk!, but really did enjoy his celebration with the kids and his mom.  One of the most amazing sports stories in our lifetime. Erik, ur fanboyness has been paid.

That was such a good finale that even my wife got interested the last few holes! She's never paid attention to a tournament in the last 20 years!

 

Now, just think if Tiger can get in touch with his putting again... 😯

Man, that was exciting. I haven’t been around the forum much in a few years, since my little one was born. Still golfing a lot though. 

Next year, he’ll be old enough to take to a couple of the family courses near here. I’ll make him wear a helmet, but he’s three and he already raves to me about golf and hockey (mostly gibberish), and watching him get excited about Tiger winning (him being excited was a combo of my excitement coupled with his fascination with Tigers bright red shirt) was one of the best moments of fatherhood there is.

I know I went a bit off topic, but it’s been a good day.

LOL, me neither but after today I had to come back and see all the Tiger talk.  That was amazing this morning.  I especially liked watching him celebrate the way he did.

Incredible win for Tiger. Took down some of the hottest players in golf over the last couple years. I think he will gain tremendous confidence from beating those guys today, just like he must have taken big confidence from beating Rose & McIlroy at the Tour Championship.

I don't know why it's so hard for people to get behind Koepka but the brute mental and physical strength of this man is undeniable. Maybe because he looks a bit like Thanos. Lol. But if I was in a battle for my life, I would want him by my side. 

My guess: There's nothing about him (yet) to draw fans or create non-fans.  He's incredibly good, but really boring, and we don't really know anything about him.  His closest comparison on the course is probably DJ because he's also pretty robotic and emotionless while golfing.  But he's all kinds of interesting off the course with his social-media/wife/suspension/drugs??/injuries etc etc.  He's level headed but colorful.  Koepka is ... there.

Just watched the back nine after getting back from work. Tiger played great down the stretch. I can’t believe Molinari put it in the water twice.

The back nine at Augusta is just a great venue for the climax of a major. Always drama.

What a tournament. Excitement from start to finish. And they beat the storm. Incredible. 

Too bad he won get the jacket among the fans. Would be more fitting than in a cabin. 

He did get the jacket on the green outside. They reversed their earlier decision to cancel that ceremony (which they only did to protect fans from possible horrible storms).

A whole lot of guys around here are gonna be having one hell of a plate of crow for dinner. It's just beautiful. They're all in hiding!

Name 'em! 🙂

Woods led the field in greens in regulation (58/72, 81 percent). Seven of those missed greens came in Round 1.

Not a "fanboy" here. Just appreciate what he is, has done, and can (still) do.

But I appreciate the crow-eating. Good on you.

Hey guys n gals;

I’m new on the forum, so let me ask this question- F. Molinari tapped in with the flag in the hole, in successive holes. Aren’t those violations?

Not in 2019.

    • It doesn't matter if the guy is perfect or the girl is prefect, as long as they are perfect for each other. Good Will Hunting  
    • I live in Scotland guys, if you do make it over, give me a shout, would gladly meet up for a round..! brendan
    • I think we are all a bit worried about David in FL.  David, if you're reading this please drop in to say "All is good."
    • The only reason why it wasn't 20+ points for US was Rahm. Go look at SG stats for these teams, then come back and tell me how close they are in skill. Obviously the EU team has talent, but lots of it is waning (I include Rory in this as I don't think we will ever see him in the top 10 on OWGR ever again). Older players have more experience, but are passed their prime when it comes to skill level. The EU team could have definitely played worse. The US team played well, but JT, Spieth and Berger were less than good IMO. If those guys are playing up to their normal standards it could have been worse for EU. This x1000. I don't think Rory will ever play like he used to, and in 2 years he could be in Fowler territory. I know RF was never at that high of a peak, but Rory's current trajectory looks bleak to me. Hovland and Hatton are the only others in the top 20 (owgr) besides Rahm, and while I suspect they will stay there, I don't see any other EU players likely to get in. Fleetwood and Lowry would be the closest or best shots to do it (Fitzpatrick is higher ranked but I don't think that giving up that much off the tee will get him higher on owgr), but I don't have particularly high hopes for either of them, although I like both of them.
    • Yeah, wind was coming strong from left to right and once it got above the tree line it moved over the sand trap and towards that single tree.  So my best estimate was somewhere between those two lines.  The group I was with made me re-tee since they were trying to beat me so I did since I didn't know the rule.  Now I know so that won't happen again.  I won anyway so all good.
