There's free coverage of the Korn Ferry Tour event at TPC Colorado on PGA Tour Live tomorrow. It's a tremendous golf course and scenic as can be. The golfers are pretty good too. I've been at the event for the past three days. It's my first KFT event and it's really a good time.

With major season over, the Ryder Cup standings are starting to finalize. Current rankings on team USA

1. Collin Morikawa
2. Dustin Johnson
3. Bryson DeChambeau
4. Brooks Koepka
5. Justin Thomas
6. Xander Schauffele
7. Jordan Spieth
8. Patrick Reed
9. Harris English
10. Patrick Cantlay
11. Daniel Berger
12. Tony Finau

13-17: Webb Simpson, Scottie Scheffler, Jason Kokrak, Billy Horschel, Phil Mickelson

How's everyone filling out the roster? Due to the pandemic they are only doing 6 auto-qualifiers with 6 captains picks. In reality, I doubt Stricker goes too far off the board and I'd be stunned if anyone of the 6-10 guys get left off the team. I'd like to get Scheffler on the team, but not sure who I'd drop. I like Finau in match play and he's got a decent record in team match play. He's probably on the shakiest ground, but I'd still take him. The Phil question is kind of a big one. I can't imagine there's ever been a player who won a major in a Ryder Cup year not make their respective team (only guy I can think of is maybe Daly?). He's been lousy outside of that one magical week at Kiawah, but I don't really think he should be on the team. He's Phil though.

Shaping up to be a really solid team but we'll fuck it up somehow.

Assuming the top 6 stay, my captains picks are Spieth, Reed, Cantlay, Berger, Finau, and Webb personally. Scheffler, English, Homa, and Zalatoris all in consideration if they make a big push in the playoffs.

I just don't see Phil making it, and I think he would agree too.

Also I haven't done an "I told you so" yet, but for all of those folks who were arguing with me that Spieth's career was finished as a meaningful PGA Tour player last year...he's now ranked higher in the OWGR than Rory.

And he's still only 27.

Patrick Reed should not make the team because he's a jerk. Yes, I know, he's done well in the past, but he's impossible to root for. I'd rather see Tony Finau or even Phil.

I never understood that whole line of thinking. He obviously has worlds of talent. He’s still young. A few years of bad play shouldn’t be the end of such a player’s career. And it obviously wasn’t.

Rahm was fully vaccinated a few weeks after the Memorial. That's bad luck at this point.

Not sure what Bryson's deal is but Bryson thinking himself into not getting vaccinated would be in character.

Cameron Champ in the lead at the 3M and looks to be suffering from heat exhaustion with three holes to go. Hopefully they get him some cold water out there.

Edit: the birdie on 16 is huge. Gives him a cushion.

Champ is waiting to win the tourney and Jimmy Walker took about 46 minutes to line up a 4 foot putt. He missed it anyway. That was pretty funny.

The 2022 schedule was released today.

The big news is the Scottish Open is now a PGA Tour co-sanctioned event, and alternatively the alternate Barbasol and Barracuda's will be co-sanctioned by the Euro Tour. I think that makes sense given a lot of Tour players were already playing the Scottish Open as prep for the Open. Fun little 2-week links stretch in mid-summer. Opening up the Barbasol and Barracuda to Euro members is likely a way of finding playing spots for some Euro players who will be displaced by even more PGA Tour players playing the Scottish Open now.

On a local note, it appears the Northern Trust is no-more. It was due to come to Norton next year but it's not on the schedule. The Memphis stop, this weeks St. Jude Classic, is being moved to the first playoff week next season. Also, not sure if WGC's are going away but there are only 2 listed on the schedule. The HSBC one in China in the winter and then the usual Match Play. Obviously the St. Jude is losing the WGC label as it's becoming a playoff event. The Mexico Championship is on the calendar but no WGC designation as of yet. They're kind of dumb anyways.

Is there any events in the Northeast next year besides the US Open at Brookline? That's sad about the Northern Trust.

The Travelers in CT is in it's customary spot, week after the US Open.

Bryson is the dumbest smart guy around. Content king but an impossible guy to like.

Someone should have followed up with what’s more mainstream than something 165million Americans have already gotten.

Idiots and assholes.

I've actually always sort of gotten a kick out of him, but I think that's over. What a fool.
"I'm young enough, I'd rather give it [the vaccine] to people who need it. I don't need it. "

I seriously wonder if this fucking tool is worried that being so massive means he'll require millions of doses to get vaccinated, thus jeopardizing the supply chain.

Months ago, I could see a young professional athlete saying he'll wait so that others who are in more jeopardy from the virus get their vaccines first. That's understandable...months and months ago.

At my local CVS, they're literally throwing away unused vaccines. Bryson's concern at this point is a total non-issue in the United States.

I get that in other parts of the world vaccines are harder to come by, but it's not like the local CVS vaccine is going to be shipped there because Bryson doesn't use it.

He's just a dummy, plain and simple. He feels he's young and healthy therefor invincible. FWIW, I get the impression Bryson is not alone in that line of thinking among tour players. Rahm was in this category too but at least realized his error, owned it and corrected it. No data to back this up, but I'd hazard a guess that the vaccination rate is fairly low on Tour. At any rate, Bryson thinks if he gets it, worst case scenario it's a cold. He has not considered the transmission angle, his only consideration was his own health. I bet he patted himself on the back for the "give the vaccine to someone who needs it" line. He so far out of touch with reality he thinks that was a stroke of PR genius to show compassion and selflessness when it reality it makes him look like a selfish idiot. Just another incident to throw on the pile of evidence that Bryson is a doofus. "Bryson, you're a slow golfer." " But look guys! I walk the fastest to the ball between shots!" Dummy. "The camera people need to do a better job protecting the brand." "My driver sucks!!!"

Bryson: Fire Ants are far more dangerous to me than Covid.

According to worldometers (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ ), as of this moment, there have been 201,277,227 known positive cases of Covid. There have been 4,275,166 known Covid deaths. That comes to a 2.1% death rate from Covid.

Then there's this: https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Health/story?id=2143091&page=1

"July 2, 2006 — -- Last week, Janet Wallace Roedl Shiansky, a 68-year-old South Carolina woman, went into anaphylactic shock and died after being attacked by ants while she was gardening. The ants that attacked her are called fire ants and are the most aggressive ants in the world -- and they are spreading to other parts of the country.

Entomologist Mike Raupp said that when fire ants attack they usually cause minor red welts and a pustule that will fade in a couple days. In about five percent of cases, fire ants can actually cause death."

So you're obviously much more likely to get Covid than you are to be bitten by fire ants. But if you DO get either Covid or get attacked by fire ants, it turns out from the data that death by fire ants is more likely.

Huh.

Everybody, every day, has something like a 2% chance of having a stroke.
That can't be even close to correct, unless the "stroke" is so small we don't notice. At 2% a day, we're virtually guaranteed to have one within one year (and probably a lot sooner, but a year was the duration I checked).
