  1. After 34 holes he had one hole worse than par - (a double). Then he bogied his 35th and 36th holes. What tournament are you watching?
  2. Only because Spieth is the leader of the "We hit this" and "We played well" and "We worked hard" brigade until there's a fail. Then it's "you" or "he". It's riduculous because no-one is going to feel offended if a player says "I played well." Are the dozens of hangers-on that insecure that they think they deserve credit?
  3. My bad - you called him Tommy Hairstyle. I posted your major record and of course it's better than (presumably) every other member of this forum. But would people who know nothing about the game rate it? My point is - how would you like to be regarded as having been a failure when everything else you have done in and for the game has been positive? I seriously don't think that a few bloggers, Youtubers and forum members ever gave Fleetwood major traction as a potential Best Player Without A major even in another decade of great play on the European Tour, a couple of Ryder Cups and a few good final rounds in Majors. Much as he makes me want to vomit every time I see him, I would rate Kuchar and a dozen others above Fleetwod and I think that would be a common way of thinking.
  4. Didn't get the irony? Your point is exactly my point. I want to know why he feels the need to be critical of players just because they haven't achieved to the expectation of some people on a forum. He should know more than anyone how hard it is. The fact that he is a great advocate for the game means he should be above it. I'll bet you didn't write a post criticising him for calling Fleetwood "Tommy Haircut", or saying they've done "nothing".
  5. Sorry your professional career didn't work out as well as you would have liked, Phil. But you can feel better about yourself by bagging the current players who actually have achieved something. Funny that. Projection much? In two years you can write things like; "Viktor Hovland, I mean, what has this guy actually ever done?" if he doesn't win a major or three. I don't really see the reason for such negativity. A lot of people get close but never have a chance to actually smoke the cigar.
  6. Isn't he supposed to say "we hit it in the water" and "we hit it over the green?
  7. He hasn't, you know. Saying "It was nothing really, it's not a problem." or "If it offended anyone I apologise."and then shrugging is not apologising. It's underlining the fact that you are a pr*ck. In any case, there is nothing anywhere that would indicate that Koepka is not respected or liked by his fellow players.
  8. Are you effing kidding????!!!!!! A one off? What about Garcia vandalising 5 greens during a tournament earlier this year? Not to mention throwing clubs and shoes into lakes and taking a dozen swipes at bunkers when he hits a poor shot? And blaming anyone but himself for poor play or results that aren't what he'd like? Or racist comments about Tiger? He has a history of disgusting behaviour. He should have been banned for six months or a year after what he did in Saudi Arabia. The spitting incident was nothing in comparison to a long list of things he's done - and never completely owned.
  9. Oh well - he is officially condemned as a failure. I expect to read his retirement announcement very soon. It's a pity that after a couple of years playing on the PGATour he did not live up to the expectations of some people who debate the worth of his endeavours.
  10. I challenge anyone to provide a link to any article where TF is hailed as anything other than a really, really good player with a refreshing attitude and interesting look. He has certainly never been talked about as the "next big thing". I find it curious how any good player (even one who hasn't missed a cut globally in 12 months, like TF) is disparaged as "overrated", when in actual fact they haven't even been "rated" beyond where they are presently. Guys like Rory may disappoint, but it's hard to "overrate" someone who, obviously, on his day, is perhaps second only to Woods in talent and raw ability. TF is not in that conversation and never was.
  11. Because he didn't win 3 majors within a year of first coming to the average Sandtrapper's notice he is "overrated".
  12. It's called "Open". Just saying. It's certainly worth reading.
  13. "Could be"? What else could it possibly be?
  14. Yes - but relief does not guarantee a free swing. One of the most commonly broken rules is people taking relief from paths and thinking they can drop it where they avoid trees and have a clear shot. Complete relief and a place to swing are totally independent entities; they have nothing to do with each other.
  15. The "them" and "these people" - are they like the "they" Fuzzy Zoeller referred to when he was talking about the people who who eat collard greens? You love a generalisation, don't you?
  16. This isn't one of those stories. This is a guy who shoots in the 80s on a good day who wants to be rich and famous. And really good players get sponsors - people who put money together and essentially gamble on a return so that THEY can make money. If someone was REALLY talented and shot lights out all the time, it's never going to be a "what if" story. Blaming lack of money is an excuse - obviously having makes it easier, but look at guys like Trevino and Jason Day. They started with nothing but talent. The real issue is that golf is really hard, but even on this site there are people who think that they could make it if they had more time and money. The majority of players reach their potential within a few years of starting.
  17. You have to have a horse to get back on. He doesn't have one.
  18. Of course, as is usual, the story is not a about player who is 5 shots shy of competing at any professional level, as someone previously stated, it is a bout a player who is a 15 or 16 handicap who pretends he's "around 6" because he once had a par round playing by himself on an easy course from the front tees with 5 gimmes and shots that he would "normally" not hit not counted. The scorecard is exactly as anyone who follows threads like this would expect. The story is always the same: Never won a C grade club championship. Never ENTERED a club championship at any grade Never done anything of note on a golf course that gets the attention of any regional players or administrators. Not one of the top 100 players within a mile of where he plays. But..... destined to succeed because he wants fame and fortune.
  19. That is complete nonsense. Lots of people would love to watch Lexi Thompson cheating her way to a win or whining Paula Creamer scowling her way around a golf course, or Michelle Wie focusing on Twitter rather than her golf. American supporters love that. What they don't love is Korean professionals with great games AND personalities doing well. That seems a bit like racism to me.
  20. First post? There are actual people on this site. It is not an automated database. If you rephrased your question you might get some responses. A simple "please" and/or "thanks" might help.
  21. Pretty sure a dozen people gave him friendly advice. Problem is he knows it all. It has nothing to do with golf and life skills. It's people like him who give his generation a bad reputation. He's an aggressive, deluded fool who you'll notice pretended to be positive when people were criticising his approach. He was passive aggressive and narcissistic. In any case, he's the worst possible student because he doesn't listen, pretends he's listened, doesn't do what is suggested anyway and then rejects the advice or drill after five minutes because it doesn't work immediately.
  22. Fact is, Kuchar is the phony that people think Mickelson is. He's a slimy jerk hiding between the grin and "Gooollyyy Matty!" BS. As long as dumb fans keep yelling out "KUUUUUUCH" people will be conned into thinking he's cool. He's a real Grade 1 dick and this was him trying to cheat. He cheated a caddy and now he's trying to cheat his fellow competitors.
  23. You use the iron because it is good for hitting long, low punch shots from the trees. As you asked, though, that is assuming you can hit both well and they go a similar distance.
  24. What a weird conversation you two had. I think the way it's "usually handled" is that the guest is grateful and thrilled to play at a course he wouldn't normally have access to and feels the tip is a small fraction of the day's cost to the person who invited him. Your friend sounds like a bit of a tight***. And you should have told him so.
  25. Pros tend have deals for 12, 13 or 14 clubs. Clearly Tiger isn't playing Titleist irons, so his deal is less than 14. Obviously TM liked it when he used a TM putter, but his deal is most likely 13 and certainly not 14.
