    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    I'd be more than satisfied if he won the Tour Championship. The cup would be a bonus.
  2. It almost sounds like a parody. 😜
  3. What's the point of this discussion? Spieth qualified on points and Keegan hasn't played well enough to get picked. It's not like there was ever an option to swap them. Recent tournament results can be a better indication than season overall, but in golf you never know. Keegan could've played terribly in the RC and Jordan might too. Or they could have played great. The rules are what they are and the captains pick based on various reasons (though I don't get Bjørn's Sergio pick). We've seen enough times how recent performance is not always a good indicator. And even if it is, the statistics point more in Jordan's direction than Keegan. It's dangerous to pick a player that's played one recent tournament well over one that's played better all year. Whether Jordan will do better than anyone else is of course impossible to tell until the cup is finished. He qualified on points, which means he beat almost everyone else on the PGA Tour. Those are hard facts and it doesn't matter if anyone thinks differently. Lobby with the people who make the rules if you want to change them.

    Stableford Strategy

    I wouldn't think you played any differently. Try using as few strokes as possible. The exception might be putts or chips where you get one point if it drains. There's nothing to lose on using ten more shots, so make sure you don't hit it short. Sit down and write down how many extra strokes you are given on every hole. You might get two strokes on one par four and one on the next. Again, this mostly matters when you need to hole the next stroke to get a point. For instance if you got a long uphill putt for one point that you most likely won't make. Normally you might avoid hitting past the hole to get an uphill putt next. With Stableford there's no risk and you don't want to leave it short. The biggest difference with Stableford is that you can't get less than zero points on any hole.
  5. We're halfways through the 2018 playoffs, the field has shrunk to 70 players and there is no cut. After this week, we're only left with the top 30 for the Tour Championship. The BMW 2018 is played at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Philadelphia. Bryson DeChambeau has leapt up the FedEx Cup rankings by winning the first two playoff events and has already secured the first seed at the Tour Championship, giving him 2000 points and a perfect position to take it all. Bryson DeChambeau will tee off with Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose 11:41 AM on Thursday. Featured Groups: THURSDAY Tiger Woods (25), Rickie Fowler (26), Jordan Spieth (27) Tee time: 11:30 a.m. off 10. Bryson DeChambeau (1), Dustin Johnson (2), Justin Rose (3) Tee time: 11:41 a.m. Bubba Watson (7), Cameron Smith (8), Phil Mickelson (9) Tee time: 11:52 a.m. FRIDAY Tony Finau (4), Justin Thomas (5), Brooks Koepka (6) Tee time: 11:41 a.m. Jason Day (10), Webb Simpson (11), Patrick Cantlay (12) Tee time: 11:52 a.m.

    2018 BMW Championship - FedExCup Playoffs

    As a devout Tiger fan, how do you not know where this is found, Colin? The SG stats are almost always updated live, as brocks explained. I think The Open is one of the rare instances where there's nothing there. Tiger played pretty good, as his final score indicated. Putting became his worst stat, where he easily could have won with a few more made putts. Except if Rory made anything on Sunday. Then he'd be at -25 or something. Tiger's Friday was especially bad, losing 3.590 strokes to the field with the Scotty. His driving has certainly improved the last two tournaments. Ended up at 77% fairways hit last (and this) week. Fewer missed fairways and not as deep into the rough and trees. As usual, approaches to the green was his best stat.

    Spieth in Danger of Tour Violation

    Spieth ended up at +3 for the tournament, T55, dropped four spots on the FedEx Cup and is 31st on the list, so no East Lake. Will be interesting to see what they do.

    If Tiger's not putting too well, what's up with Rory? Here's the birdie attempts today that he's missed: Distance in feet from hole: 14, 14, 18, 11, 19, 12, 17, 34, 6, 8, 8, 8. A couple of them were from the fringe. 11/13 greens hit. Lost 3.2 strokes to the field today.

    Tiger seems to be coming up a bit short again. Running out of holes and a few too many bogies. Safely in for the Tour Championship though.

    2018 BMW Championship - FedExCup Playoffs

    Tiger's 1 back. Packed leaderboard though. Horschel, Rose at -17. Woods, Bradley, McIlroy at -16 Na, Simpson, Fowler, Shauffele at -15. I'm glad we got this final round. Edit: And there's Tiger's first bogey... Poor shot from the tee, okay-ish approach, bad chip, putt didn't drop.

    I don't know. If they haven't been able to get the final round halfways done by Monday, things are really starting to drag out. Not only for the players and their team, but everyone running the tournament. Still looks hopeful for a fourth round:

    Forecast looks more promising today. I'm not used to the US or international way of predicting weather, so I don't know how much they expect. In Norway we get predictions on how many millimeters are expected throughout the day, not the chance of rain. On the Norwegian site it doesn't expect a whole lot of rain today, so we might finally get some golf again.

    They don't want to let this one go just yet.
  14. Does it hurt even when doing the golfer pickup? I've seen many players with the picker-upper on their putters. It's fine as long as you are careful not to damage the hole while using it.

    2018 BMW Championship - FedExCup Playoffs

    It's predicted to rain all day, so even if it starts raining less, the course might be too soaked to play. There's predicted rain tomorrow too, but not so much.

    Another meh round so far by Tiger. It started so well, then he fell into par-mode again. He's driving it really well, but not making putts and not hitting them close enough often enough.

    What are the chances they cut the tournament down to 54 holes if Sunday runs down the drains?

    Poor Phil. He's playing so poorly nobody wants to play with him today.

    2018 BMW Championship - FedExCup Playoffs

    Yesterday: 3.116 SG approach to the green. Today: -0.088 Yesterday: 2.215 putting. Today: -2.625 Yesterday: 1.5 putts per GIR. Today: 1.929 Can't put all blame on his putter though. Lower SG on approaches affects SG putting. Yesterday he made 94 feet putts. Today 30 feet. Aaaand he finishes up with a bogey on 18 for even par today. Not very good. I hope he did it to give everyone else a chance. I think he will head to the practice green.

    What a difference a day makes. Pretty dull round so far by Tiger. One bogey and the rest pars after 7. This stretch wasn't the most rewarding yesterday either though. He played hole 1-7 2 under yesterday. Back nine (which was his first nine) was where he really got it done. Avoid bogey on 8, make a birdie on 9 and we're off.

    Tee times for tomorrow are being moved because of inclement weather.
