    How can we watch this?? Just the GC?




    Yes. No pga Tour live until the desert classic.



    I just signed up last night and thought they might have a little extra coverage. No luck.

    I believe he won an event, didn't he? Sanderson Farms, I think.


    Right, but that was in the CURRENT season (2018-2019). I was saying I had previously thought this event was for winners of the PRIOR season (2017-2018). I looked on the website. It just says "champions from the prior year", so as I said, I was wrong in my understanding.

    It's always been this way. The Tournament of Champions used to be played at LaCosta three weeks after The Masters. If you won the week before (at say New Orleans) you got added to the field.
    swing is irrelevant, score is everything

    just say NO.... to practice swings

    Kevin Na withdrew minutes before his tee time with a finger injury.




    The 2019 rules required him to pull his finger out and play faster. He couldn’t.



    In other news, a poor end to the front nine for Cameron Champion. Easily done though, as I once 5 putted the 9th at Kapalua.

    Well that was a surprise checking the leaderboard after being in here as the second coming is even par.



    Anyway, how is Rory off the tee so far? Is he getting along with the driver?

    DJ to repeat.



    Fun fact: that island off in the distance used to be Leper Colony, and I think there are actually still a few of them left.

    I was lucky enough to play the Plantation course three times two years ago. I played from the tips twice, and from the next tees up one time so I could play with a group. It adds a whole new level to watching a tournament.

    The next hole error is much worse, gotta keep the ball down more Rory!! Beautiful swing though...

    These Top Tracer numbers, at least the peak height, are way off. I’ve always thought they were, and now I know for sure. DJ just hit a low bullet that said 130ft peak height. Then Rory hit a standard looking drive and it said 60ft peak height.

    What is with that font? Everything is too big and too rectangular. Colors are a little too bright and have nearly zero transparency
