Caddies typically only make 3500-5000K a tourney for their "salary". In some cases the tour pro will pay that and cover travel/lodging expenses (usually more established pros and their caddies). The rest of their income comes from a percentage of the players earnings that week if they make the cut. Typically, that is 5% for making the cut, 7% for a top 10 finish, and the usual 10% for a win. 

 

5000K or $5000?

I am sure the caddies are on salary so it would not affect the caddies pay but on the last day every stroke is worth 6 figures. Rahm should have listened to his caddie.  

The lobster commercial just makes me hungry. I dont even know what the commercial is for, I just want lobster and butter😊

That's the thing! The guy's second choice, behind lobster with drawn butter is a burger?! What kind of a troglodyte is he?!

If you figure a Top 5 Vs. a Top 12 finish then the caddie lost out on abut $20K (considering the average 5% and 7% payouts)

Oh gee, caddies ONLY make $3500 to $5000 a tourney for salary? Hell! I'd be a sack dragger for that!

I really don't understand what Rahm thought he was doing on that shot. Looking at it from above makes it look worse:

hook-1024x1024-1.jpg

Jon Rahm made a terrible mistake at the 2019 Players Championship. A new look at the costly shot, and what he can learn for next time.

He also was concerned about the lie for laying up. So why did he think he could pull off a 20+ yard hook shot from 220 from the same lie? I really don't get it.

That's why I said it was a bonehead play! I have no idea what Rahm was thinking. I also love video clips where the "background" music drowns out the commentary! Couldn't hear anything the guy said. 

I don't blame you DeadMan. it's whoever produced the video.

I turned on the tournament right before Rahm hit that shot and was baffled by the decision. Its like something somebody who's been playing the game for a week would do. That wasnt an impossible shot in a way that had a tiny sliver of success and heroism involved - it was just straight up impossible. I dont know if it ever comes up on TV or not, but i remember from playing the course that theres a little stream behind that green. So even if Rahm did somehow hit it, the overspin on the ball might have taken it into the drink over the back...

I was watching the telecast, and witnessed the entire conversation. Rahm said he didn't feel comfortable hitting to a layup area that was right there! Yet, he seemed to be comfortable trying an impossible shot! This led to THE MOST COLOSSAL, GIGANTIC, UNSCIENTIFIC, INORGANIC, LESS THAN ADEQUATE, ILLOGICAL, CONTRARY TO EVIDENCE, TOTALLY HOSED UP THINKING IN THE HISTORY OF PROFESSIONAL GOLF!!!!

If their player is good, or is well established then it sounds good, but if they are looping for a guy struggling to keep his tour card then they are covering their expenses out of their "salary", and are making a small amount on the other side. 

But yeah the the guys caddying for the world top 50 aren't worried about much.

Nah, definitely organic. The golf ball that hooked in the water certainly contained carbon molecules. Splash!!!!:-P

I actually got in a huge fight with my outlaws about saying that I'd rather have 1 really good chicken wing than a whole lobster....

Rahm payed to see. As spectators of a TV show I´m glad he did, but for his best interest he did the worst shot-call ever.
He watched to many Phil and Bubba shots turning the ball 50 yards from a tight lie.

I thought it was kinda funny when Rham said afterwards, ‘ if I hit that shot 10 times I’d find land 9 times.’

Caddie should say, ‘ and if you hit the lay up, confident or not, you’d hit land 10/10.’

Actually, at first I thought the same thing, but it turns out there was another video on that page that auto-played along with the main video.  There wasn't any background music in the main video.

Would have loved to hear a reporter follow up and say “Here’s 10 balls. We’ll all go out to 11 right now with you.”

The bottom of the hazard it´s also land! We missunderstood him.

I think Rham could hit the bunker or green 1 out of 6..7 shots.

Interesting. I guess I've just gotten used to the modern paradigm where every bit of dialogue must be "bedded" in music of some kind. Many times it seems like they don't get the levels right. I actually dug out the user's manual for my TV to see if there was some sound setting that I had wrong! 

Speaking of sound, many times I've been watching a golf telecast and the background noise sounds like a frat party! It makes me wonder where they place their microphones, and why they are "hot" at that moment!

    • I heard David in FL's pool hall will begin to require passport cards beginning on Monday...             😁
    • At the state government level, states can certainly do this, although several have banned covid passports. As to private businesses, the EEOC has already said that the private sector can require vaccinations of their employees, so there’s no real need for a passport. As to the federal level, I doubt Congress would pass legislation mandating passports because public health and safety largely falls to the respective states. Moreover, the White House is on record stating that there will be no passport mandate via executive order or a passport database. 
    • Yep. I can come up with something 
    • I do hope that you realise that in disingenuously pretending to be calm and "polite" whilst all around you are flailing away in their misguided but cute attempts to make a wise and experienced person like yourself see reason makes you look like the worst possible stereotype of someone who embeds himself deeper in the mud by the minute. Just because you are not taking the bait and are ignoring the barbs and insults doesn't mean you are occupying any high ground. Certainly not one of a moral nature, anyway.  When are you going to present some information that would suggest - just SUGGEST, not prove  - that taking the vaccine is probably not a prudent thing to do. We are waiting. Very calmly, very politely. Bet you can't do it.
    • Thanks for posting. We need to see a video of you hitting a ball. Practice swings without a ball can be very different.
