Rory and Tommy is a pretty captivating final pairing.
Cut is going to be -1, which means that JT, Bubba, Koepka, and Hideki make the cut on the number
Nor does a double eagle exist.
"It's an albatross," Padraig Harrington said, incredulous that anyone would dare call it anything else. "There's no such thing in life as a double eagle. Is there? Two eagles side by side are two eagles, not a double eagle. You don't refer to animals ... 'Oh, I just saw a double elephant over there.' There's no doubting what it is. It's an albatross."
Intereresting segment with Chamblee, Duval, and Nobilo on the 17th green all in agreement that Tiger had relief that would have permitted him to drop up by the green for his third shot. That likely would have saved him 3 shots.
I’ve played and watched golf for about 35 years and never heard ‘turkey vulture’ or ‘double eagle’. Maybe I’m ignorant on it. It’s an albatross. If you hole out a par five off the tee, sure, you can have double eagle.
Double Eagle is widely used in the United States, and has been at least since 1935, when Grantland Rice wrote of Gene Sarazen’s “Shot heard round the world” on the 15th at Augusta on Sunday:
"And then as he swung, the double miracle happened. The ball left the face of his spoon like a rifle shot. It never wavered from a direct line to the pin. As it struck the green, a loud shout went up. Then suddenly (it) turned into a deafening, reverberating roar as the ball spun along its way and finally disappeared into the cup for a double eagle 2 — a 2 on a 485-yard hole when even an eagle 3 wouldn't have helped."
Saw Brandel’s posts on twitter and he confirmed it with a rules official too. Big miss by Tiger although I can understand why.
i prefer albatross
It’s albatross. I’ve heard double eagle but I always referred to it as albatross. Never heard turkey vulture until this thread.
And the last pairing is teeing off at 2:40 today? Dumb.
Fleetwood doubles #1 and McIlroy bogeys.
Azinger is unbearable to listen to. He’s got Tony Romo disease; he’d always rather say something stupid than leave 5 seconds of dead air.
It's windier out there today. 17 is going to be fun.
DJ starts birdie-birdie.
This should be a great afternoon of golf. I think Rory does it.
I’m probably pulling for Rory the most, but am really on team anyone but Day.
Can Nike get Fleetwood a sweatshirt that fits?
Day had several shitty swings on #1. Enjoy
I wouldn't mind seeing Rahm melt down, too.
I don't know why, but I'm in this camp as well.
Well there’s a bogey on 1 for Rahm. I like him, but the entertainment potential with him is high if things go sideways and he starts losing his mind.
Rahm and Fleetwood both bogey 1. And Furyk just won't go away.
Bubba and JT both wet on 17. I think that's about 10 balls in the water already there today.
Team anyone but Day or Furyk for me.
Feels like I’m watching a fall event with the leaves all over the place.
Nice shot Tommy. Woof.
I’d be flabbergasted if I made a putt like that. What the hell was that? He didn’t even get it halfway to the hole.
I don't want to sound cocky, but I have that shot.
Rahm and Rory backing up some more. Leaving the door wide open.
Take that back!!
The nonchalant reaction of the announcers to the spectator after taking Rahm’s wedge in the chest was amusing.
BTW, I’m in complete agreement with the observation by Needler. Azinger is awful.
I have sent the bad mojo to Rahm and it was delivered well.
You are not kidding.
I’m on #TeamOllie
This is actually an utterly incredible leaderboard.
That may be the cheesiest mustache I’ve seen in years.
Ollie might have the weirdest putting grip
Rory with a wedge is quite an adventure. Where will it go?
Rory on Sunday is an adventure across the board.
I don't mind Azinger but he does talk too much. He'll learn.
Having said that, I miss Johnny.
Ollie looks like Eric Roberts in Star 80.
"Furyk shall not go away. Furyk is a FREE ELF!" shouted Jim Furyk.
The lack of commercials from NBC today has been refreshing. Nice to see them show actual golf.
Thanks for the power jinx
Rahm went against his caddie's advice, rinsed the ball, and let out a nice f-bomb. Great sequence.
Rahm’s caddie should’ve given him a “told ya!” after that shot.
Really terrible decision
