Not sure if many share my sentiment but should a major look as easy as this one did yesterday, despite perfect conditions?

Most courses would prefer to nearly bake out the greens before the tournaments (to make them super firm) but a lot of rain doesn't help that.  But more to your question, for me, I don't care about difficulty that much. I like watching guys go super low at Augusta or anywhere known for typically playing super tough.

I enjoy this West coast super early golf.  The only thing that sucks is that it's too early to have a nice cold one and watch golf.

Can't root for Koepka; dude has too many things going for him in life. :-$

One by one, he's making the patrons stop following him.

What was that Tiger. Didn't even reach the green. Are they guessing on winds up there already?

He reached the green, it just didn't stay on there... :-( 

Tiger's second shot came up short too.

Cloudy and raining here in NE Atlanta.  Augusta is about 150 miles east.

Molinari is playing as if he won 10 of these already. 

Crap bogey on 4 and now his worst nemesis is coming up...the 5th.

Molinari just doesn’t hit bogey, I’m rooting for Tiger but Molinari is just too consistent.

Definitely don't like the changes to the 5th. It doesn't feel any more interesting, just more of a slog.

Smart move adjusting his game plan and not using driver there.

Looking at that radar, this is going to be such a close call. Not sure they’re going to make it. Question is if get close to the end but the rain comes, whether the rain can stop before sunset and they can finish up.

He’ll find a way out.

There are too many guys within striking distance for Molinari to win today by being a par machine today

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
