  1. U.S. Open Playoff Going from 18 holes to 2

    Why "than they should"? Few U.S. Opens go to a playoff, so they're maximizing the good TV time for the majority of the events.
  2. Statistics Help Needed

    You can. But the odds are significantly lower.
  3. U.S. Open Playoff Going from 18 holes to 2

    @GrandStranded, good luck getting the TV networks to agree to that. Even though it's summer, they still have stuff they'd rather show than two or three people playing golf, I believe. Even the Torrey Pines was during the daytime.
  4. Telling Stat From 1977 Masters --Tee Time Spacing

    If I was playing for even $1,000, I'd take a little more time over them and I'd score a little bit better. But that's beside the point: shots don't matter more to the average amateur than they do to the average PGA Tour pro, despite what you keep saying. I don't lose sleep (or $40,000, or a two-year exemption, etc.) if I shoot 72 instead of 71.

  6. I believe my staff bag is fake leather. It's held up really well. I think synthetics have come a long way over the last few decades.
  7. Happy Birthday Thread!

    Happy 50th to @Antneye!
  8. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    I can go with that. That's what I tried to convey in my last paragraph.
  9. U.S. Open Playoff Going from 18 holes to 2

    That said, too, they've also already played 72 holes. It's not like the entire championship is determined by two holes. It's determined by - in the rare case that there's even a tie - 74 holes. Thinking of it that way means a divot one player finds on the second hole on Thursday might have meant he could have won outright… But recency bias is a strong and powerful thing. I disagree. And again, they're crowning a champion after 74 holes. People - except for Tiger vs. Rocco - generally don't tune in to watch a Monday playoff. So by seeing a champion crowned Sunday night, I would argue that they've done the opposite of cheapening the event in the rare case that we have a tie: the ultimate "cheap" feeling is not seeing a winner crowned Sunday night when almost nobody will tune in to watch on Monday.
  10. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    I don't know about misshapen. It may be the perfect shape (for some), but just because it wasn't one of the "original" determinants, doesn't mean it's the wrong one. Majors won is, in the minds of probably almost everyone, a major factor (no pun intended) in their own personal determination of GOAT. For some it's ALL that matters (i.e. 18 > 14), but for you and me, it's still a factor: if Tiger had only 6 and even if he'd won those six by 10 shots each, I don't know that you'd call him the GOAT either. "Major count" was not the first, and IMO should not be the only determinant, but I don't know that it's "misshapen." I can see why you'd use those words, though, as you're considering playing opportunities for Hogan, Hagen, Sarazen, etc. Me, I don't consider them top two, so I don't really care about what happened back then. So since Jack and Tiger are on equal footing, I don't consider majors "misshapen."
  11. Yes, but his opponents also had to play 36-hole matches, and… someone has to win them.
  12. Thoughts on Tony Romo’s debut in MX ...

    Three birdies on the front, none since. Three bogeys on the front, two and a double on the back through 15. +4. Scratch that, now, another bogey on 16 is +5.
  13. Which move changed your game for good?

    It's only available for 9, 18, or 27 minutes, depending on your membership level.
