    If anybody in the Hamburg area I suggest to play Hamburger Golf Club (Falkstein), it's a fantastic heathland course.

    Good to see some guys coming from the US, the Euro Tour is definitely enjoying the abbreviated schedule on the PGA. I think XS should be up there on the week end, the guy's playing well at the moment.

    Quite looking forward to this. I don't get to see much ET stuff as my days are busy (retired grandfather) and I just don't have time but today I'm crocked with a gammy knee which I have to rest and so it will be ebay and tour golf. Hard life.

    DeChambeau too embarrassed to come back this year after his snub of McEvoy? :lol:

    Conditions are tough as the wind is strong. Robert MacIntyre currently tied for the lead at -4.

    Schuaffele is half German which gives additional reason for him to be Germany this week.

    Just watching the highlights on Sky Sports, and I'm pretty sure Dougie Donelley just trolled Matt Kuchar over his short trousers, saying he was too tight to pay the tailor properly 😂

    Similar conditions although the wind doesn't appear to be quite as strong. Despite being over par for the day Casey is still in the lead.

    I'm paraphrasing but: Tim Barter to Paul Casey. "Padraig Harrington says that it is good to play a really tough course in tough conditions occasionally, would you agree?" Casey. "No, but then again Padraig's mad".

    Its not difficult to get good fitting trousers that are reasonably stylish. It's basically his work uniform.

    Admittedly I don't play professional golf. But if I did I bet whether my pants looked good would be a few steps below preparing myself to win a golf tournament. Especially one where I had to travel to another continent to compete in. He may have bigger fish to fry.

    After 2 rounds: leader macintyre at -11, xs at -2, reed at +2 and kuchar at +4 MC.
    gotta wonder why the top rate usa guys do so poorly at such events.
    near the seacoast so nearly flat terrain, but maybe wind or german beer plays a part.

    Yeah it's tough out there, Mcintyre is on fire at -11, but the rest is far behind. He's clearly "in the zone"!
    Also regarding appearance fees, do they get those even after missing the cut? I guess it's too hard to judge motivation
