Rahm looks disappointed at that shot. I would have taken a selfie of it

It's still a massive amount of walking. Hills, distance, and many many many hours. Rahm and Koepka have been walking hills today for 8-9 hours. While playing golf in a pressure packed tournament.

It's significant and it takes its toll.
Absolutely! The mental toll it takes to perform at the level these players do for four straight days (add in the weather challenges this weekend too) and it most assuredly is exhausting. Hell, I coach at a high school level and it is exhausting to match up against our closest rivals...I cannot imagine how it would feel to play on this stage.

30 holes today for these guys, too.

It's a massive amount of distance walking, tons and tons and tons of hills, and pressure. These guys are machines and it's impressive as fuck.

Is that who's slowed things down?
Very much yes.

At one point, Hovland literally hit a chip on the 13th green while Cantlay was STILL on the fairway walking to the green. That doesn't happen too often. It's probably happened before, but I've never seen it happen.

And there is a picture on Twitter of Brooks and Rahm both staring daggers at the 16th green as Cantlay lined up a putt for 8 minutes, and missed. Arms crossed, angry, grim, pissed.

Anyone else spend the past 5 minutes explaining provisional tee shots?

Last year, Schefty four putted the 18th green on Sunday and won the Masters. This year, Rahm four putted the 1st hole on Thursday and won the Masters.

The yin and the yang.

Did Rahm find his tee shot? I got a little confused there because I thought he played the provisional but then the score wouldn’t make sense.

That was cool. Sergio's first Masters was when JMO won, and Rahm's first was when Sergio won.
