"Oh he's got to get this one within 10 feet"

Well...FWIW...they said ‘got to’ not ‘should.’ If someone has a 25’ putt to win...you’d say he’s got to make this putt. Not ‘should.’

Consider re-teeing rather than the drop zone?

I did, but I figured I can handle an 80-yard shot and obviously I can’t.

Tiger Woods was on pace for a great round on Friday after shooting 3-under through his first seven holes. Then he stepped on the tee box at No. 17, the famed island green that has wreaked havoc on …

 

I don't think there are many players who don't have scars from 17.

Copied this from Tony Finau's teacher (I think), hitting right into and over the trees.

Was the option of dropping near the point where the ball entered the hazard on the first shot not available? Or is it a local rule that you have to drop it in the drop zone?

Um, not a local rule, it's the rule: 26-1a and b. You have to go back to the point he ball last crossed the margin of the hazard, so your only options are to either replay the shot or got to the designated drop zone.

Yellow penalty area.

Golf channel just showed a live demo from the 17th green that based on where Tiger's ball crossed the yellow hazard line and the straight line from the flagstick, he actually could have dropped on the walkway behind the green after his tee shot.

Yeah we just saw that.

There's no way he could have known that, though, really. Unless he was going to walk up to the green and get the exact point it crossed from someone.

Eh, he could have, just knowing the shape of the green and the walkway.

I don't think that it's a likely thing, but he could have known. And he'll know in the future, as will some others now.

That's what I thought he could have done.  And that is why I brought it up.

I am surprised neither Tiger of LaCava didn't even consider that option.

That's not what you brought up. You mentioned dropping "near where it crossed.". They'd be dropping well away from where it crossed - on a line back.

That option was not an option, no. It's yellow. Not red.

Coupla things. First off, Justin Leonard and his little boy haircut. C'mon man.

B) Tiger and the par 5s this week. I just can't.

His putting is just awful.

"So I love the beat and the groove in this piece and it just, like, propels it forward". - said nobody ever of a classical woodwind/string piece.

It's nice and all, but I'm not sure how this is the theme for new audiences loving golf .... maybe older audiences.

Better than a lot of today's computer-made music, autotune, etc.  Some young people like it when musicians are skilled and can play instruments/sing themselves.

Hopefully Rory can keep this going as he travels down to Georgia.

    • When you’re caught intentionally violating the rules by using a prohibited substance, how can you be “overly apologetic”? Maybe appropriately apologetic...
    • To be clear, I expect to be paired with someone else when I show up as a single, especially on the weekends.  I have no desire to play as a single behind loads of foursomes. But as someone who is new to the area, I just don't have regular playing partners to play with (I did before I moved so I am not a total loner/loser). So at one of these courses (the preferred one of course), which with good weather is generally totally booked from opening to at least 2 p.m., my choice is either to not play or to book as a twosome.  If you book a twosome, they have no problem booking another twosome at the same time. Why is pairing a single with a twosome or threesome so problematic. To also be clear, this is a city course.  My house is way above average value for the city, so I am paying much more than average taxes to support this course.  Yet I'm being denied access to public facilities for being a single.   And if you're a public course denying access to singles, you are missing out on business. Force pair them up (sometimes you meet people to play with next time) and if they book as 4 but are really 2, charge them for it (or maybe be better to tell them NEXT TIME you will have to charge them for it). 
    • I hit them for a night to see what they were like.  I really liked the feel of them.  Would probably go in my bag if I hadn't bought 765's in 2017.  Sending you a PM as well. Pulled a grip off the 5 iron and finally saw the etching on the 4.  These are a KBS Tour stiff shaft.
    • A three-month suspension for weed? Dustin Johnson, a three-time offender, got 6 months for cocaine. I also find Garrigus's overly apologetic tone vexing. Maybe there's something else behind this? PGA Tour suspends Robert Garrigus for violating drug policy Robert Garrigus has been suspended by the PGA Tour for violating the Tour's anti-doping program. In a statement, Garrigus says the drug that...    
    • I agree with determining what your end game is and go from there. From my personal experience, I wish I would have gotten lessons from the very beginning. Learning to play just by playing led me to some very bad habits that are taking forever to get out of. I recommend lessons and also suggest Evolvr. I am currently working with Evolvr on my swing.
