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.

I guess I will cruise on down to the racebook and cash my ticket in. Thanks Woody....

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.

    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
    • The conditions, particularly of the putting greens, don't appear to be "bad" at all there. That stuff matters.
    • The Costs of Selling Covid Fear. Covid vaccines are incredibly… | by James Surowiecki | Jul, 2021 | Elemental Covid vaccines are incredibly effective. The media’s overhyping of new research from the CDC is making people think otherwise. If you haven't already, get vaccinated.
    • Day 584 - August 3, 2021 Hit fifteen or twenty balls at Chautauqua between lessons. Wrists while I turn, 1/2 swing (or 3/4). Whatever it is, it's "less." Hit some good ones.
