    How to get a Lean Body?

    Has everything to do with it. What an ex of mine called "the fat gene." She was talking about her granddaughter. Sure, it is, but understanding natural selection's properties is hard. We are hard-wired to put on weight. It's a survival thing. Takes an awful lot of discipline (and good genes) to not gain weight as we age. I'm in much better shape for 62 than average, but still fighting the silverback belly. Old dude, and there isn't much I can do about that. Doing 20 minutes of meditation a day is even better.

    "The fun of golf is figuring things out." There is a reason why Jack is in my personal Hall of Fame. Tiger, Ben, Jones, and everyone else is a nominee. Those guys had a passion for figuring it out. All of the guys who get to the Hall of Very Good, the rest of us golf nuts who pause as the funeral procession goes by, we just want to figure it out. Nice segment to open my US Open Day, my Father's Day gift. Happy Father's Day to all of you, esp the granddads and great granddads. Best wishes. Do the microphones make the crowd seem close to out of control? Holding back the outbursts? It's like a competition for who can make himself heard over the herd. Or am I yelling at the kids to get off the lawn?

    The ball didn't HIT 18 feet away. The ball didn't stop, 18 feet away. It rocked and slowly turned, and rolled faster into the bunker. A bunch have done this. They don't stop rolling, until they are off the green. Saw someone miss a putt and it finished off the green down the hill.

    It would be funny if somebody at +8 shoots a four under early and wins it. +8 was the cut line, that Jordan gacked, and is now tied for 17th. That's pretty much what Berger and Finau did. I don't know, unprecedented?

    18 feet from the hole is usually good enough.

    Now, it's gone too far. Koepka hit a good shot onto the green and it rolls into a bunker? Slowly, rolls off the green. That seems a bit unfair.

    Correction: It was Zinger who said it. He's the funny one.

    Curtis Strange on Justin Rose. "He couldn't hit a green if you dropped him out of a helicopter."

    Everybody is looking for it.

    Did anyone else hear it said thirty people were looking for Dustin's ball, yesterday. What does it mean, "losing the golf course?" How is a golf course "gone?"

    I think back in the old days they called it "slamming the trunk." I think Phil was done with it. He'd had enough. I think he's going to regret this, a lot.

    You're right! Usually people who do this--almost always a frat boy-stereotype--who has to have been born on third base to be this dumb and can afford tickets to every single golf tournament--and this is my grandkids. I have no idea what the Seventies generation annoyed our parents with. If anything at golf tournaments. Now they have microphones that pick up everything. Nudge, wink. Does the apparently unfair golf course make you want to keep watching or stop watching?

    I have figured out what "dilly dilly" actually means. Trust fund.

    Dear Professionals, we sympathize with you. This is what golf looks like to us.
