    Suddenly Tiger's 2 back.

    They better make their birdies today, because tomorrow will be a different day.

    He absolutely wants to, but there's still only four players shooting 3 under or better so far today. Idk. if that's "birdie'ing the crap out of this course" worthy.

    There's been a few birdies on the back nine too. Hole 14 does of course contribute with 60 birdies more than the easiest hole on the front nine, but there's certainly opportunities on the entire course. More bogies on the back nine though.

    In scoring conditions it might not be enough, but if the weather gets worse on Sunday, pars can be valuable. 17 mph winds on Sunday afternoon could turn things upside down.

    That's really disappointing. One of the biggest tournaments in the game and no ShotLink.

    No, I mean Shot Tracker, not Tracer. The graphics on every PGA event on pgatour.com where you can see the hole layout and where a player has hit the ball, distances etc.

    Is there no Shot Tracker or something similar for this tournament?

    Slightly higher winds predicted in the afternoon, but from then not too much until Sunday, which could get winds up towards 20 mph.

    Qatar will be played in November - December, usually 30 degrees Celsius.

    Not just looked like, he was falling before contact was ever made. A bit of an anticlimactic match. First half and up to 60 minutes was intense, then the 3-1 put a damper on Croatia. France were very efficient, but in my opinion got help from the ref for at least one goal, maybe two.

    2018 World Cup

    That's not a penalty. Terrible decision for the game.
  13. I have used a feeling of driving a nail or stake into the ground before, but only with irons. I had a mental image of a nail going through the ball and into the ground at an angle, so I would hit the head of the nail with the club at impact, to promote a downward strike. IIRC, it wasn't too bad of a swing thought, but I don't know if I worked on the positions too and actually had a chance. Doesn't matter what I imagine if the hips are back, too far rotated and head forward.

    2018 World Cup

    Sweden hasn't looked very impressive in this WC imo and I doubt they'll beat England. If so, maybe on penalties. Sweden has really struggled getting the ball into the net after a good attack. They beat SK 1-0, lost 2-1 to Germany, beat Mexico 3-0 and Switzerland 1-0.
  15. I don't care about original intent or what the courses looked like 20 years ago. If they want to make changes, please do. I don't believe an original design has to be better than a redesign, just because it's how it first was made. If anything, today's architects got decades of experience with said course and know how they play better than the original architect.
  16. In Norway, you can use the range and practice areas on most courses without being a member. You need a membership somewhere to play on the courses, but not for ranges and practice areas.

    Ah, that's the tweet I was trying to post @Golfingdad 😁 Love Japan. This Colombia vs England match is terrible. Half the match is spent arguing, lots of yellow cards and dirty play.

    As long as its not being punished, it will keep happening. Neymar will never have me as a fan with that attitude, but that doesn't matter to him. He's there to win matches and by diving and faking he may increase those chances. The Brazilian supporters has noticed too, but they'd rather have a Brazil winning with acting than not winning at all. Some countries and players are a lot worse than others, and I can't say I've seen the majority of the teams like that, which is a good thing.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    Yep, from 79th to 67th. With this, he can get into top 50 at The Open without winning it. The Open is next up for Tiger and will be his last chance at qualifying for Firestone. Don't know how high he will have to finish there, but it's a stronger field, so maybe inside top 10 will be enough?

    2018 World Cup

    One side of the bracket is way open now that Spain is out. You got Russia vs Croatia in a quarter, and Sweden, Switzerland, Colombia or England joining them. On the other side there's Uruguay, France, Brazil, Mexico, Belgium and Japan. Certainly a stronger bracket, but there can still be upsets.
  22. And it doesn't say anything about what kind of putts they are. Uphill, downhill, breakers or straight. I looked up Tiger's missed putts inside 10 ft. and here's the list: 9'7" 6'3" 7'2" 6'5" 6'2" 8'1" 8'1" 9'5" 7'10" 8'0" 9'2" 6'0" 3'1"

    There is a rule saying that the keeper on a penalty must remain on the line until the ball has been kicked. This rule is clearly not being enforced. Especially now with VAR, they should either start enforcing it, change it or get rid of it. Croatia didn't look as sharp today, but I'd rather see them winning than Denmark.
