  1. Rory McIlroy Fires His Caddie

    I don't see Bones as a good fit for RM-or any Brit. Seems too relentlessly chipper and never stops talking. Not the British way!
  2. 2017 RBC Canadian Open

    It would have no difference to how he played the shot, and he would not have asked for relief if he had a good lie in the bunker. It was clearly within the rules, but the rules on this occasion are too generous. If you hit it in a bunker, tough luck should be the approach in my opinion.
  3. Rory McIlroy Fires His Caddie

    He needs help with course management and club selection even more. He will never be a great putter, but is a good enough putter to win. He often makes silly CM mistakes that Spieth never does. He needs a better caddie.
  4. Career grand slam - who gets it first, Spieth or McIlroy?

    Not true. After he dumped her in 2014 he went on that mad run starting at Wentworth and then winning 2 majors and a WGC in a couple of months. He said that during that time he basically did nothing but practice golf. I suspect that he has lost that desire again.
  5. 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Discussion Thread

    Yes. Especially with the 13th hole debacle. Can you imagine Faldo or Woods taking that? They'd be over there kicking up a stink. Hell, even Jimenez did that a few years ago. And then afterwards he was all pals with Spieth on the green. Too nice to win.
  6. More Career Majors- Day, Rory, or Spieth?

    Still think he would shade it but who knows. Would be great if they could go head to head at a major. Maybe one day. Maybe next month.
  7. More Career Majors- Day, Rory, or Spieth?

    Probably Spieth. When he isn't playing great he finds a way to win, and he usually holes the crucial putts. Rory is either brilliant or terrible. If they are both at their best Rory wins.
  8. 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Discussion Thread

    Wasn't that complicated a situation in terms of the rules. 17 mins to take the shot is taking the piss.
  9. 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Discussion Thread

    Spieth isn't exactly a big personality either. For most it probably gets in the way of being a top class golfer.
  10. 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Discussion Thread

    This is far from over. Spieth was fairly wild off the tee but got away with it. No guarantee that he will continue to do so.
  11. 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Discussion Thread

    Unless the balls are moving on greens play goes on. Highly unlikely to be lightning in the UK.
  12. Jon Rahm Thread

    Very good player, obviously, but comes across as a spoilt brat. And he needs to learn how to shout fore.
  13. 2017 Greenbrier Classic Discussion Thread

    Someone needs to shut up Gary McCord. Total cretin.
  14. Mickelson and Bones split

    Rory should grab him. He needs a good caddy.
  15. 2017 U.S. Open Discussion Topic

    He was on bbc for years, but they only really had open plus masters. Way better than all the other pundits, here and in the states. Quirky without trying to be funny and knows what he is talking about. Brooks was great but the whole tourney was very underwhelming. Hardly any noise from the crowds, not much excitement on the course and the presentation was so low key it was embarrassing. Nobody seemed that bothered about it.
