    Maybe he'll win so much they'll make a statue of him based on one of these pics. Personally, I'd pick the 3rd photo.

    While we're posting pictures of former Presidents. Looks like Barry flipped this chip pretty good.

    Funny, that's what my wife tells me. Says he kind of looks like her dad (which is true), but I think there may be something else going on.

    Here's one I haven't seen before -- Ben Hogan playing in his final Masters, in 1967, from a Golf Digest article. Check out the gallery:

    Here's a great look at Lexi Thompson past impact. From Thursday, 2015 US Open:



    us-open-lexi-thompson-18.jpg


    Strange and yet somehow weirdly appropriate. She is so golden up to impact, so athletic and so full of distance potential, and she hits it an absolute ton. Then it's a train wreck just after the point where it doesn't matter anymore. Class act from everything I've ever seen, and I absolutely love watching her play.


  • So your 1965 Birkdale picture sent me down the rabbit hole of the 1976 Birkdale open championship...



    I think that's Tom kite with frosted tips in all powder blue like a boss



    -Chris


    Absolutely it's Kite. The mostly underappreciated Kite.



    When I lived in Austin in 1991-92, the Legends was still being held at Barton Creek. I got to go out early in the week for an exhibition match with Trevino, Chi Chi, Crenshaw, and Kite. They were all terrific and in a great mood. Trevino's ballstriking in particular was...I don't even know how to describe it, other than like an experienced musician or artist who is totally secure and confident in what he's doing. If you're a good player, you know how it feels and sounds to hit a control shot -- like when you're between clubs and take the longer club, choke up a little, shorten the swing a little, etc. -- and you hit it absolutely smack on the sweet spot, no vibration, with a little deeper sound? Perfect? Every iron he hit was like that. Every last freaking one. I'll never forget it.



    Kite, on the other hand, was like a machine, just an efficient "snick" with a tight ball flight. Crenshaw was like he was when he was younger -- a little spray-oriented, but still a beauty to watch. Chi Chi was Chi Chi, like skill reigning in chaos and brilliance. Also, Herman was still caddying for Trevino. It was a blast.



    So after the thing is over, people are lined up waiting to catch the shuttle back to a parking lot up the hill. Kite comes out of the clubhouse, and instead of avoiding people, getting somebody to run him back to his car in a golf cart, end-running the line, waiting until everybody's gone, etc., he walks right to the line on the way to his car and stops for a good five minutes, telling everybody thanks for coming, recognizing a person here and there, talking to this person and that one, etc. It was clear that he did it deliberately and made a point of it. And nobody would've known if he hadn't.

    2008 US Open; Monday play-off I think. Rare to see TW with a smile on his face during a round.


    And then Rocco smiled his way into an "I'm just happy to be here" loss, capped off by using the same club for his tee shot on the sudden-death hole with which he'd missed the fairway over and over on that same hole (I think it was a 4- or 5-wood), putting it in the fairway bunker and drawing not such a great lie, hitting it well short from there, pitching on to 18 feet or so, missing the putt, making a total mess of a hole that just wasn't that long or hard, and handing Woods the victory on a bogey to Woods' routine two-putt par -- after opening the door for him on Sunday by refusing to take the opening on the 72nd hole from a playable lie in the left rough to hit it to the right side of the green (or even right fringe, bunker whatever) and leave only an up-and-down for a birdie rather than a full wedge.



    I've got nothing against Mediate. I'm inclined to like him, actually. But he started early to play not to lose. The happy-happy thing became just-happy-to-be-here. He played OK in the 18-hole playoff, looking like somebody who just wanted to act like it was a casual round, but when it came to the crucial moment, there was a way to refuse to lose by making the same mistakes he'd made on that hole before. Just anything but the same thing. You can't see Nicklaus or Woods doing that.



    Anybody who's interested ought to look up how many tournaments Woods won when somebody shot a **** final round or bogeyed a playoff hole. I mean, he can't help it if people are going to throw up all over their own shoes. He can only beat who's in front of him. But boy, did it ever get tiresome watching all the "these guys are good" and "greatest generation" promos from the Tour, then watching that happen over and over.

    Not to poke holes in your post but have u watched Trevino and Jacks 1971 US Open playoff?

    Jack left it in 2 or 3 bunkers on just the front nine....



    After the rain break, Jack wasn’t again within 2 of Lee...



    Granted Trevino was an assassin and told Jack the rain would make him[Lee] win since it softened the greens...which was a tremendously cocky thing to say to a man who was the greatest golfer to ever walk the earth (imho)



    But in golf, even the greatest can sometimes have an off day or a bad hole...



    Mediate gave tiger a run but that putt tiger made on the 72nd hole was astonishing...



    Then he did what he had to do in the playoff...
