    LOL, they all pull for each other. Stratton, Matt and Viktor were all hanging out for 30min on the range talking after the 36 holes yesterday. Stratton will tell anyone that Matt has "it" to him. They all laughed watching the GC coverage and swing speeds of Matt. They were definately exaggerated in the programming on Golf Channel. Matt is long, but not the longest even on his team. They will all say about Matt is his positioning and swing on his downswing and I listened to them talking about it in the clubhouse yesterday with some other collegiate players. His positions are perfect on the downswing and he repeats it. He launches the ball so high, he gets every yard out of his swing speed. They know what Matt's real speeds are and though Matt is strong and fast, his CHS is no where near Dustin Johnson and the longest players on tour like they were making it out on in the coverage. There were two players on this team that were longer. This whole group has a special bond with each other it shows in events like yesterday where they are competing as individuals. I will say this, there may be some trouble next season for oSu in numbers of players. The talk I heard yesterday was eye-popping.



    There were four oSu players in the sectional:

    Stratton Nolen - 72/62 -137 -7

    Brendon Jelley- 68/69 - 137 -7

    Matthew Wolff- 71/67 - 138 -6

    Viktor Hovland - 76/WD




    I had a feeling that after oSu won the NCAA title that there would be at least one or two of the underclassmen that decided to go pro. In my opinion the caliber of kids playing at oSu already have this on their mind and since they have won their championship the next logical step is to go make some coin.



    It really is good to hear that they are out there rooting for each other.




    The problem is that they have NO ROOM for any underclassmen to leave. They had 11 players that started the year, 1 transferred to U of Ark after the first semester, 4 graduated. One more has already declared pro two weeks ago after winning the Monday Qualifier on the Web.com event. That leaves 4 with one recruit coming in. I know that 2 of those 5 are going to attend two q schools each in the fall. (Web.com and Euro) That would leave 3 and of those 3 I could see two of them turning pro this summer as their stock is pretty high right now.




    That sucks. I guess it will be #RebuildingYear

    Stratton has a lot to be proud of, and I mean a lot! Graduating with 2 degrees is something for Stratton and Deerslayer to be proud of. Competing at a top D1 program in golf is tough. I'm glad Stratton stayed with the program because he will walk away with a great support system of alums and former team members, 2 degree's, a national championship, and friends and memories that will last a lifetime. I hope I get to meet him in the Pro Am this fall and shake his hand and say thanks.

    Interesting development announced by Rickie today.



    Check out @RickieFowler’;s Tweet:




    Yeah, looking forward to that one. Probably get enough interest out of my daughter that she will watch, too. For some unknown reason she has a very healthy interest in Auburn University.



    Would be kinda nice if they included some of the women’s teams as well. Both Alabama and Auburn have good teams, though Alabama has lost some cachet with the recent departure of their top two girls. At this point, anything I can use to motivate her to get better is worth it.

    My oldest son is a huge Auburn fan and my 10 yo says he playing golf at Alabama. Great something else for them to argue about

    I thought you can see past episodes on-demand with the golf channel if you have cable.

    Wait until a few weeks before season 2 is released. Then they will be played again.

    Does it seem like college age golfers 18-24 are hopped up on something? They are SOOO intense a cross between vanilla ice and maverick from top gun.

    Tends to happen when golf becomes their job at age 12. Plus you have to look tough when you get in front of the camera.
