    Gotta like Rory's chances here, if he can hold it together on the weekend

    I'm probably in the minority here, but I kind of look forward to this event. I really like this course. Love all the trees. The field is good. Also, nothing else on TV right now haha

    This event is great, it's an interesting course and about the only time the broadcast shows more detail. When they have the yardage alongside adjustments for elevation and wind, it really puts it in perspective. I'm glad they don't spend the whole time saying "wow he hit a 6 iron 250" when it was really at elevation downhill with the wind so it adjusts to 190.

    I'm pumped for this event as well. As one of the few tour courses I have played, it is still amazing to see what these guys do on a "short" course. Honestly, love this test, vs the Florida penal-style golf. Glad to have a mix!

    Did Rory just hit one 410 yards...? 65yds past Woodland. After watching him at Riviera last week, I don't think anyone is even close to his driver.

    How do they prep for this tournament at altitude? I assume they get new numbers for all of their shots via Trackman and are not really doing math and calculations before every shot.

    Rory, Bubba and JT on top after the first round, Rahm struggled and DJ stunk up the place.

    621 yard par 5, Rors on in 2, hits a 274 yard shot to like 5ft. 364 yard carry on another one.

    The fawning over the longer guy's distance, particularly Rory's, is always nauseating. You combine the altitude with the fact that someone that hits the ball as high as Rory will benefit even more because of that and you have these kinds of drives. No Roger, Rory has not found some "new gear", quit deifying him because the air is thin.

    I'm with you. It's a great tournament. The course makes a refreshing change from many of the bland, soulless PGA Tour courses, i.e. those coming up in the Florida swing. It also puts more of a premium on accuracy, given the trees and how tight some of the fairways are.

    I also seem to recall the last few years have been close finishes, which is what you want.

    Sometimes I think the game is turning into how far, and not how many.

    I honestly don't think Roger knows this tournament is being played at altitude.

    He's probably wondering why he gets winded going up the steps to the commentary truck.
