  1. Hard to play at the level Tiger played at for as long as he did. Everyone seems to think the next young gun to win a major is gonna rattle of 10-12 of them over the next 15 years... it's clearly not that easy. Once Tiger started to stumble, Rory was "next". Then Jordan... then JT, now Collin and Wolff and Bryson. Someday the game of golf will likely see another Tiger, but right now, there's just entirely to much young hungry talent. But they get hot, then cool off, then get hot again whereas Tiger just... didn't cool off for 12 years or so.
  2. Unreal golf by DeChambeau. Even crazier to me than his single length irons is that he plays graphite shaft irons (not sure I know of another tour player that does) and the grips look like they’re the size of those jumbo putter grips... just, a crazy equipment setup
  3. No idea how Wolff did what he did today, these friggen guys play a different game than the rest of us... insane
  4. If he wins I’m gonna enjoy those salty tears of yours. If he doesn’t, so be it. I don’t hold 7 year grudges on young athletes who display a little overconfidence, even if it comes out as cocky.
  5. Duvals issues were injury though, Jordan hasn’t had any of those. I’d say more like Ian Baker Finch... just not quite a decline to that degree
  6. Still hanging onto that top 5 comment from what... 7 years ago now? 🙄
  7. DJ plays a different game when he's on. I don't think there's a golfer on the planet that can match DJ when he's at his best...
  8. noticed that myself, never seen him do that half takeback like JT before in his routine... then today at Wyndham, wasn't doing it. His fidgeting does seem to have gotten worse the last couple years, at least he's not grabbing the towel 10,000 times anymore 😂. Curious what someone else with far more knowledge on the golf swing thinks though of the commentators remark today, I believe it was Trevor Immelman and Aaron Oberholser who both agreed that if he just switched to playing a cut off the tee, it would solve a lot of his issues.
  9. Why exactly did they dump McCord? He didn't retire right? I didn't mind him... I miss Feherty though.
  10. We’ve done that in NY... the south right now is a MESS, they’re the biggest culprits of not wearing masks. Anyway, back to topic, we get that passing by someone on a golf course doesn’t infect someone, even if that person coughed or something at that exact moment. But as positive tests keep popping up, it just looks bad. Certainly shouldn’t give other sports reason to think it wont turn into anything but a disaster. The scariest thing is these players testing positive in the middle of tournaments not Tuesday before the tournament when they initially get tested, they’ve already been around a lot of people if they test positive on Friday or Sat or Sun
  11. What a complete mess this situation is. Player is Denny McCarthy, he WD and Bud Cauley who played with him first round WD. The third member played alone today. 12 or so people he was near have been tested again, which is stupid, if he infected anyone yesterday they aren’t going to test positive the next day
  12. As of right now, with the spikes some states are seeing, not every sick person has a bed available if needed. I know I saw Dallas the other day reporting their ICU beds are completely full. Other cities are spiking bad because nobody cares anymore. Americans got bored of it
  13. the test they take again in a few days will be more telling. Testing positive requires enough virus to actually get on the swab. I don't disagree with most of what you said... but I'm standing by what I said in my original comment, this virus (as a whole) is a mess... and I don't see how contact, team sports can return safely, considering cases are popping up all over those sports, and it only took one week for the PGA tour to get a positive case. It's not about age or survival percentage for an athlete, it's about curbing the spread. Newer studies coming out are also saying up to 60% of asymptomatic cases on x-rays show lung damage... that's not good.
  14. Was only a matter of time. This is a mess. There is no way sports can safely return right now. The NHL *still* thinks they're gonna finish their season and now players are testing positive left and right. Sure, the PGA Tour may be "safest" as it's much easier to social distance... but, still a mess.
  15. I don't think there really is a possibility of this either... I believe it's vaccine or nothing. This type of virus there is no "treatment". Just managing the symptoms and let your body try to fight it. I think we're incredibly fortunate as it is that *most* people should make it through this ok. Personally, doesn't make me any less terrified of getting it, even as someone who is young (mid 30's) and otherwise healthy.
