  1. Winter Depression Thread

    I thought this winter would never end, but alas, the sun is up and fairways are thawing. Predictions the next week are more sun and up to 16C/61F, with some expecting it to get up to 20C/68F not too far from now. I think I've found the course I'll be playing the most. They got all greens thawed and have started brushing them.
  2. Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    We don't know. He said after The Masters: We might see him at Quail Hollow on May 3-6, and probably at The Players May 10-13.

    Even if the unlikely happens and Tiger doesn't get within top 60 by next year's US Open, take a look at the list of players who's been given multiple exemptions by the USGA before. If Tiger is playing somewhat well and happens to be just outside of top 60 by the time of qualification, and is healthy and wants to play, I see no reason why they wouldn't give him an excemption. Hell, they could do it just to pump up the ratings. Not that I believe he will be outside of top 60 by that time, if he's indeed healthy enough to play. His advancement on the OWGR since returning is heavily indicating that he will be inside top 60 pretty soon. Masters Tournament 88th Arnold Palmer Invitational 105th Valspar Championship 149th The Honda Classic 389th Genesis Open 544th Farmers Insurance Open 539th Hero World Challenge 668th And still, we're talking about the US Open 2020, which is well over a year away. Every player that qualifies for the Tour Championship in 2018 will also get a spot at the 2019 US Open. Tiger is currently 42nd and could well get into top 30. On the topic of Tiger's chances, nobody is saying he will definitely win, which nobody obviously can't. All we're saying is he's got a chance to win a tournament and even a major if the game is there. He's finished T23, MC, 12, T2, T5 and T32 in 2018. Of course someone with that record has a shot at winning a major.

    I don't spending money on betting, but if I was, I would never put it on a golfer winning a golf tournament. In team sports you can choose between two teams and often make a good case for it. Golf is individual and a player spends 16-20 hours winning it. No matter how much you look at form, previous history on the course etc. it's very difficult to guess. With enough people betting, I can't imagine the bookies ever struggling making their vacation money.
  5. He's recovered because it was an operation. Operations give immediate changes, but of course need a time to fully recover to where he can play golf again, which he did. The operation he had is common and was expected to fix his back. What was miraculous about his recovery? Or rather, what evidence supports a theory where he shouldn't be able to recover in that timeframe? He had the surgery in April and didn't play events until Hero in December.
  6. PGA Tour's New Slogan: Live Under Par

    What about everyone on tour that doesn't live under par? Those that struggle to make cuts regularly? They are still good (These guys are good), but they don't live under par when they are often over par.
  7. PGA Tour's New Slogan: Live Under Par

    Not a fan at all. I don't think the slogan makes sense and I don't like the editing, music or use of emojis/Twitter in the video. It's probably to aim at younger generations.

    He took some advice from Miller and turned the clubface really quick during impact.

    Probably because some guy called Tiger were teeing up during Langer's swing. That would throw anyone off.
  10. I bought most online earlier, but lately I've moved to buying more locally. Especially clubs I only buy something I've been fit for, and I want to buy from the place where I get the fitting. I don't want to do all the work at a fitting centre and then buy the clubs for 10% less online. I want to keep the fitting centres and shops, so I want to support them.

    Here's an article explaining some of Reed's personal struggles: http://www.golf.com/knockdown/2018/04/08/masters-patrick-reed-estranged-family-complex-mix-emotions There's been conflict in the family for quite a while now and by the sounds of it, it's a very delicate situation where Reed's wife and family in law are bashing Reed's parents. We don't know half of it just from articles of course, so we're in no position to point fingers to anyone, but it's a very unfortunate situation. I hope they get things resolved and can proceed without more drama.
  13. Easiest Way to Read a Putt?

    As an amateur, sure, but the guys on the PGA tour are hardly that. They're the best in the world and they play for millions of moneys. Gary and Jack would've done the same if they played in this age. Bashing on newer generations for doing something older generations didn't do often comes off as silly. The game is always evolving and the competition getting tougher. Pro players today are doing a lot more to improve their scores than the guys in the 70's did.

    Absolutely was! The last putt decided it, excitement all the way. Reed was composed out there and played really well.
