    2018 British Open Championship at Carnoustie

    I would take a score around even par every time, I like seeing pros struggle every once in a while :) They can shoot -25 in regular tour events

    What's your biggest problem in golf?

    This season my biggest problem has been disastrous holes during a round. Almost all of my comp rounds have had a triple or a quad. Seems like I just seem to hit a really wayward shot (OB, lost ball, top or flub with a wedge!) and they cost me big.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Played on the weekend, shot 72 (+1). My round had 6 birdies, 4 bogies and a quad! I was going along nicely at -3 after 8 holes, then put two balls OB on the 9th hole. Then got it back to -2 with three birds, but then finished with 4 bogies, quite a rollercoaster!

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    Yea I guess, but that's just crazy! I guess he went to some kind of a meltdown mode and wasn't thinking clearly. You should know from at least the two first shots that he is playing the wrong shot. It's like hitting five drives to a water hazard that is 320 yards from the tee and saying that I didn't miss a shot. Poor thinking

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    Sergio saying that he made a 13 without missing a shot. I like the guy, but that sounds a bit weird.. At least one of the shots looked pretty awful and if not bad shots, they were definitely stupid, trying the same shot all over again and expecting a different result!

    How many three-putts (or more) did you have today?

    I had 3 3-putts in my last round. Two of them were from about 30 feet, hit the first putt about 6 feet past. Third time was about 20 feet with a hard right-to-left break, underread it and missed a 4 footer. don't know if I should focus on getting better lags or holing better from 4-6 feet. I still feel like I'd rather give putts a chance than lag them short..

    The TST Member tournament play thread....

    Couple of tournaments since my last post 1) Club championship match play. Won my semi-final 2/1, and now I'm going to the final! We are going to play it in a week or so 2) Club championship stroke play. 36 holes yesterday. I shot 80-81. Had good front nines in both rounds (+2 and E). My putter went cold in the first round and I made six bogeys on the back nine. In the second round I was going along nicely for the first 11 holes, but then made two triple bogeys in the last 7 holes, auch! Have to take the positives, I hit a lot of good shots and putting felt better in the second round. Today is the final round, I'm in 7th position. First 5 players are way ahead (scores from -10 (a touring pro!) to +7). Then there's a bunch of guys on positions 6-10 that have shot around 80-83 for the first two rounds.
  8. Looks sometimes like Stroud is anchoring his putter.. I must be wrong though..

    Ideal Pitching/Layup Distance

    Good, interesting stuff on this thread. On my home course there is a short par 4 where I can drive it to about 30-40 yards of the green. I've been consistently using this play. There is rough on the left and a bunker on the right, but not huge trouble. The green has severe slopes, so it is tough to approach. My last three rounds I've made three bogeys from the left rough and been about 40 yards from the green.. The rough is pretty thick but in no means unplayable. You have to hit from a sidehill lie, so the stance can get a bit uncomfortable. I'm considering trying a different approach on this hole and maybe leaving it a bit further. But after reading through this post I just might stick to my original plan and try to get my drive as close to the green as possible (and on to the fairway..) and execute my 40 yarders better..

    2017 WGC - Bridgestone

    I read somewhere that he's had some back issues.. But whatever the reason he has totally lost it after the Masters. And he's brother definitely isn't helping his cause with all the weird tweets Maybe he started enjoying it a bit too much after the Masters, which of course isn't wrong, but is showing on the golf game
  11. Great to see Curry shoot a 74. I was watching web.com tour twitter for updates and it's the first time I've followed Web tour like this. So at the moment seems like a great invite for the tournament. I hope he shoots a good round today as well.
