Hero World Challenge on Golf Channel right now. Tiger is striping the driver.
He looks weird wearing sunglasses.
Anyone planning on going to the PGA at Bethpage in May?
I honestly don't understand why every pro doesn't wear them. They are out in the sun so much. I used to get headaches after every round, now with my glasses on I can play 36 and be fine.
That's funny because I can't golf with sunglasses on. Seeing the bright sun out of the corner of my eye contrasted with the dimmed sun in my main point of view when I swing screws up my coordination something awful.
Same here. I can’t play with sunglasses on. It just feels weird to me.
So much DeChambeau putting with the flag stick in.
Edit... maybe that rules isn't in effect yet?
I live in sunglasses when golfing. I suppose there’s a little getting used to them but I could never go back to playing without them—there’s just so much sun and glare out there. I’ve heard some people think they impact green reading.
yea i believe January
No sunglasses, no hat for me...Robert Rock/Ryder Cup Rory-style. (but lots of sunscreen).
No hat would mean a very bad burn for me, so that is not an option.
Unfortunately I have a fairly heavy prescription so I don't really have sunglasses anymore. I do/did like using them for drives, as I thought made it easier for me to pick up the ball in flight, but that may have been all in my mind.
Clip-ons seem to have made a minor comeback this year. Might have hunt and be a bit spendy to find something that looks good.
Not sure how I feel about the new golf channel graphics.
Bryson putting with the pin in looks weird
I was debating this myself last night. I like that they seem to be going for less clutter (a nice change from most channels nowadays). But something didn't seem right. The font seemed a little too large and cartoonish, maybe? Probably done for mobile devices.
Love watching this tournament this time of year, although the lack of snow on the ground locally takes away some of the panache.
Pretty decent ball striking round for Gary Woodland. He doesn’t make a putt over 9 feet and shoots -6.
Some others were doing it today. It looks really weird
I’m watching the final round. Rory behind Woodland by 2. Should be fun.
I like TGC new presentation.
Woodland needs an up and down on 18 to force a playoff with Schauffele.
Schauffle played out of his mind today; -11 for the day.
No dice. Xander wins again.
Insane round of golf for Xander...second shots on 17 and 18 were incredible.
Everyone aboard the Jordan Spieth is a head case train yet?
I think they are all headcases. Jordan just talks too much.
Many are with the putter changes lately. Some of these guys are going through putters faster than wedges.
Missed cut in an easy tournament to start the year, hasn’t looked good in a long while, was talking about not being comfortable on the course, throwing old equipment in the bag because he doesn’t trust the new stuff, gone from one of the best putters on tour to mediocre to worse, Haney saying he believes Spieth has the yips...
He's also down to 18 in world ranking and hasn't had a top 10 since the British Open.
He's definitely struggling by his standards, but he shot 66 in the 2nd round (granted on a par 70 course) of his first event of the year. I'd be shocked if he wasn't a factor in the majors this year.
something about the contrasting colors of the very green grass and the brown areas at the Desert Classic is very nice for the eye
What the fuck happened to PGA Tour Live? NBC Sports Gold? $10/mo?
Yeah what the fuck. This is BS
A bit late to the party on this, but did anyone else notice how awesome Waialae looked and played last week? I had no idea that Tom Doak had been consulting on the course, nor did I know (until just now) that it was originally designed by Seth Raynor - but the Raynor elements really came to the fore in my mind for the first time. I'd always thought of that course as pretty blah, borderline muni-type fare, but now I think Hawaii has two really, really good courses with which to start the year on Tour and not just one.
So I did some research. Apparently it all migrated over to NBC/Golf Channel. I canceled my iTunes subscription and signed up for NBC Sports Gold. They're running a special that ends today for $49.99 for the season, so basically the same price as before. So I think I'm in good shape.
Still - what a cluster.
Phil is doing work...must be hard for these guys to concentrate when they are playing with a couple of hacks
59 watch for Phil
I honestly wondered how long he could stay in top. He'll always be a good player, but his game has a lot of holes and it's pretty amazing he was able to do what he did. Let's see what him and his team come up with to stay on top.
I believe Speith got engaged early last year and married in November. Could be as simple as him not being as locked in on golf as he was in prior years. It doesnt take much for outside distractions to get you off your game, and no doubt he went through a lot of changes.
If you said ‘had kids’ I’d be on board. There’s not a ton different between being dating/engaged/married until kids come on board.
That depends. Maybe they started living together for the first time. Or maybe she was a bridezilla who obsessed about the wedding all year. I'm obviously just guessing, but again at that level small changes off the course can really affect some guys
Can you imagine a Spieth wedding.
" Do you take this woman to be your bride"
Jordan spends 3 minutes conferring with his caddy
For me with Jordan, when he was winning a lot I always said he was boring. I think part of the reason I said that is because there wasn't a part of his game that was overwhelmingly better than everyone else. He doesn't hit it particularly far, he's decently accurate, his ball striking is good, as is his short game. Everyone's response to that was "His mental game is better than everyone". At the time, that may have been true...but he's a bit more fragile than people thought.
A few months ago on the PGA players survey, most pros said JT would win more majors going forward than Spieth. I don't disagree.
I think he’ll be fine. He was 33rd in total strokes gained last year despite being dragged down by being negative (123rd) in putting. He contended in 2 majors, finished T12 in the PGA so he was able to piece it together in the big spots. He also was one of the better US players at the Ryder Cup (an admittedly low bar to clear there). Cleaning up the putting is easier said than done, especially if Haney’s yips observation is accurate, but the rest of his game is in tact.
I’d chalk the Sony up to some rust. It was his first start in 2 months and he had the wedding any everything, so presumably there was some time off of golf. He did shoot a 66 on Friday.
My thought (without checking the stats) was that when he was winning he was an all-world putter had elite short game to go with it. That was definitely his strength, especially at Augusta.
That is obviously not the case now, and he's not good enough in other areas to overcome his putting downfall.
We still need a “like” button on this forum.
Does he mutter at the rings as they put them on?
Does anyone have a good PGA podcast they listen to or site for betting purposes? I’m in a couple of fantasy leagues that require weekly player selections and I admittedly don’t follow the PGA as closely as I should, do any shortcuts are greatly appreciated.
