  1. Bubba after tee shot on par 3: "You can't play golf in this weather" It's windy but not even close to being play called off. This is how it's supposed to be at the Open, finally some testing conditions in a major! Bubba just thinned from the bunker..
  2. Second day about to get underway, Beef is up on the first tee, shot a good round 69 yesterday!
  3. Conditions looking a lot easier than in the morning. Stuart Manley in with 68, journeyman pro from Wales. Poulter, Rose, Stenson, Thomas going well. Birkdale looking nice at the moment
  4. 2 ob tee shots in the first 3 groups. Wow the first is a tough hole, and the weather isn't helping. Reminds me of the feeling when I first played on a links course in Scotland with heavy rain and wind gusts, didn't feel too good going out on the first tee
  5. The Open is underway! O'Meara hit first tee-shot out of bounds and his second one into a pot bunker, auch
  6. Watched a bit of the US Women's Open and was pretty drawn to it! I think the course looked nice, and probably the talk about Trump before the tournament actually brought more attention and viewers to the tournament.
  7. Played my Club championship match play 2nd round match this week. Won my opponent 5/4 and I am going on to the 3rd Round. Whirlwind match, I was 3 up after 4 holes. Lost holes 6, 7 and 8, won the 9th. So 1 up after the front nine. On the back nine I won holes 10, 12, 13, 14 and the match was over. Played solid, I was 4 over when the match ended.
  8. Played a good round yesterday, 74 (+2). 1 birdie, 3 bogeys, 14 pars
  9. I think Chamblee had a good point. Rahm marked it on the side and replaced it in front of his marker. Rahm just got lucky that he accidentally placed the ball back in pretty much the exact same location.
  10. Rahm definitely played the ball from a different position.. I don't think there's any question about that. I'm sure he didn't do it on purpose. He prob should've been penalised for playing from the wrong spot.. Great tournament for him anyway and he is looking good for future Ryder Cups ;) EDIT: Read the beginning of the thread, and it seems he might have accidentally marked it in the same spot! What a weird thing..
  11. Shot 79 yesterday. I had 4 birdies, 9 pars, 2 bogeys, 1 double, 1 triple and a quad! Very eventful round..
  12. First tournament of the year yesterday. Shot 80 (43-37). Made a quad and a double bogey on the front. On the back nine I had 3 birds, but also a bogey and a double. So lots of good stuff mixed with a few awful holes :)
  13. I'm going to be in New York City for a week in the beginning of June. I'm considering playing a round of golf while I'm there. I'm leaning towards trying to play Trump Golf Links. Seems to be a reasonable distance from Manhattan and looks cool. Twilight/Sunset rates seem reasonable, seems like they won't let a single player book beforehand. Anybody here played Trump Links? Any other recommendations when golfing near NYC?
