  1. Would be interesting to hear a completely honest interview with him about such things. I agree that it may be less important today than ten years ago, largely because he's older and gets less opportunities. Majors will for the rest of his career be what matters most, but the family has probably changed him. And age, and health problems. And etc. He's had an amazing career either way and is the GOAT. Only thing missing on his list is winnings more majors than Jack. Is he still behind Snead in number of wins?
  2. Ah, he was that close. The way he's been playing, he will hopefully qualify through other means. He also posted the best tournament of an amateur ever in a U.S. Open. The previous record was held by Nicklaus with 282 at Cherry Hills Country Club in 1960. Hovland shot 280.
  3. Good on Woodland. Viktor Hovland ended up as best amateur in his second straight major at T12 with -4.
  4. After Thursday, Tiger was still there. A slow first day is pretty common. But after yesterday I thought his chances were gone, or at least very small. Today's start seals the deal. He won't come back from ten shots behind.
  5. He apparently used this at The Masters at least: TaylorMade M5 9,5º, adjusted to a high draw. Project X HZRDUS Black 75 extra stiff.
  6. He sometimes gets those rounds with 16 pars, but when he shoots +/-2 it's often with a bunch of birdies and bogies. The first to rounds has been a par feast for him. Lots of good players still within reach.
  7. Someone forgot to inform Rahm and Piercy that this is supposed to be difficult.
  8. I might try Cyberpunk one day, but the theme is not my favorite. TLOU2 will probably be played some day. Just gotta play TLOU first... My highlight from E3 was Elden Ring, which will be a guaranteed buy. I just finished Sekiro, which was a fresh and different take on FROMs Soulsborne style. The combat was very fun and engaging, but once I got the hang of it, I still prefer the combat of Bloodborne.
  9. Worst part about Pebble is the 9 hour difference from central Europe. I can catch some coverage from the middle of some rounds, but not rounds from the final pairings.

  11. Hope you'll enjoy them! Did you put on any tape or just straight to the shaft? I also angled my grips with the logo down. Primarily because I don't want to make the logo placement wonder if I'm gripping the club right or if it's rotated properly. If I used the logo to align my club, I would never be able to trust that I got the logos at the exactly right spot for every club. It would only disturb me. If yo remove old grips that will never be put on again, you could cut them up rather than blow. Especially if they are attached with double-sided tape on or just sticks a lot. If you absolutely want to blow them off, put one some gloves and goggles.
  12. Since getting Pure grips years ago I've never used a glove. Less hassle, money saved. Never had problems with the grip.
  13. From the perspective of a professional, he's right. They need to put in the hours, and most of them alone. But being alone doesn't necessarily mean you are lonely. I like being alone, so it's a happy game for me, but I'm just an amateur and don't put in anything close to the number of hours a professional does. It's one of the reasons I ended up with golf and not something you need more than one person to do. I like tennis, but never kept up with it. I'd think there are many professional golfers that also enjoy solitude and ended up with golf partly because of that. As others have mentioned, if we are talking about athletes at the top of their sport, you need to put in a lot of hours, many of them alone, even if you are in a team sport.
  14. Great! I never understood why this rule is still a thing. Especially considering the LPGA can play in skirts and shorts. If that's not sexist I don't know what is. Great! This should be allowed everywhere all the time. Interesting. Not sure if that's the way to go to speed up play, but at least they are trying something. A gimmick, but okay. Can't hurt to spice things up a bit for the spectators I guess. Fine, but I don't think this is something they will do regularly. Men will always (possibly with some very rare exceptions) win. Maybe men and women could play the same course (possibly from different tees), but compete against their own gender. Right. Is this a big deal? They've used blimps for ages. Do the drones give off any disturbing noise or are they high enough up and large enough not to be a nuisance?
  15. Played my first round where I actually kept score since 2013... Second round played in 2019. 5 over on front nine and 13 over on back nine, total 89 on par 71. It was my first time playing this course and was raining the first 7 holes. All things considered I'm okay with it.
