    2019 Genesis Open Discussion Thread

    They're not re-pairing. They're just turning around and starting the final round. Not that Tiger is going to win, but he could finish hours before the leaders and will have played the 18th hole hours before the leaders even get to the back nine. Tiger is currently T7.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Legally, when you visit a restaurant, you're only obligated to pay the bill, not a tip. Kuchar was only legally obligated to pay $4k. But that still doesn't mean he wasn't a douche to pay $5k.

    USGA Looking Into Lucy Li Apple Watch Ad

    It is simple and clear. She breached it, and somehow got off with only a "warning." No, because he's not famous or known for being a golfer. Not sure oof your point here - nothing would stop her from playing professionally. It's remaining an amateur that's at question. They have ads with amateurs in them all the time. But those amateurs are being paid as actors, not because of their reputation and skill as golfers. It's not about being "put out." It's about the very definition of the word. If they got $5k instead of the clubs, they're obviously no longer an amateur - they're accepting remuneration for their play/skill at golf. Ditto if they get clubs (valued at > $750).

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Knowing the course well enough to help a few bums on vacation and knowing the course well enough to help a PGA Tour player are two very different things. For example (and it's just one example of many I could share), I had a really good caddie (by reputation) at Kiawah Island… and he couldn't help Dave and I, let alone a PGA Tour player. His advice actually hurt our game(s) until we started ignoring him.
  6. So people actually misread that one as racist.

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    I don't think that will get adjusted. The ball simply can't roll forward. Either mark or make sure the ball goes backward. If you drop twice and it goes forward both times (but the second was at or behind the first), you place. I just asked about this, and the general guideline is that if you listen to music for a prolonged period, you must be doing it to gain some sort of advantage, so it's disallowed.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Meh. His "local knowledge" might be enough to get a resort guest around. It's not going to apply much to a Tour player. Plus, again, the guy can't speak English.
  9. Day 378 - February 16, 2019 - Hit balls for about ten minutes after the Junior Elite Program for the day. Rotated the mat around as the one side was getting worn.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Right, my only point was that one event isn't proof of much of anything. I think Tour caddies can be over-paid, but at the same time, their guys are one injury away from struggling to find another bag or something. And they are away from their families, etc. too.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Kevin, I'm not sure what you're saying here. You disagree but you can concede… when quoting basically the same post I made? Which is it? The caddie likely didn't provide much help outside of carrying the bag around. He barely speaks any English, and so even if the putt breaks left to right, like Matt Kuchar isn't going to know that - the subtle language about "three inches if I hit it firm" or something likely isn't going to be a conversation the caddie has with Matt. The caddie didn't know Matt's game, doesn't speak English, and was likely carrying the bag for the week and not doing much else. It is, but it's also speculation that Matt would have done worse with someone else, or his regular caddie.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    No, that’s bad logic. It doesn’t say anything about the value a regular caddie provides.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Next to nothing. For all you know with his regular caddie he wins by six.

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    No. This is all Matt Kuchar. Kuchar did nothing right either. He took advantage of a guy. He was far less than generous or even doing the base amount. He exposed himself as cheap and out of touch. Just because their “contract” would hold up in court doesn’t mean Kuchar “did nothing wrong.”
