  1. Amazing that Spieth misses the cut after his past 4 years of success at Augusta National. It shows just how far a guy's game really can fall.
  2. There are other matches going on. It would be nice to see some of them between Tiger/Rory shots.
  3. I wish there were more like you. Good riddance.
  4. Why would you pick Tampa for a golf trip? I don’t think there’s anything worth playing to travel all the way from Houston for.
  5. The layout (particularly the back 9) isn't that bad. The conditions of the course are just consistently awful.
  6. Listen to this advice everyone considering a move to St. Pete! Orlando or the East Coast will gladly have you clogging up their roads instead!
  7. Yeah, definitely looked like the right call given how big the storm looks and how miserable the course looks. 3 round tournament? Cut after 1 round? Push the finish to Monday given it's a holiday? No way there will be a cut after 1 round. Even if it’s 54 holes there would only be a 36 hole cut.
  8. That headline is from Deadspin. No one actually reads Deadspin so no one even saw that headline.
  9. He didn't stiff the caddie, he gave him $5,000. Which, if he is correct in that he makes $200 a day, say he works 24 days a month, that is $4,800 a month. Kuch doubled his monthly income. Now, he could have made it absolutely life-changing and maybe another pro would have, so ok, shame on Kuchar. But don't assume you are going to make $50,000 and turn down $15,000 and then complain about $5,000 that you agreed to. He is not entitled to getting an extra bonus. What is Matt "not understanding that most of us understand?" Why is giving someone $50,000 "doing the right thing?" I don't agree with o
  10. I'm convinced everyone saying Kuch should have paid more love to spend other peoples money. When I worked at a golf course in high school the worst tippers by far were the ones with Obama stickers on their car. This isn’t a political jab either. Just an honest observation.
  11. Yeah and if Kuchars agreement with his regular caddie is a flat 10% like you’re saying and he missed the cut then el tucan is taking advantage of the situation right? Because in that missed cut scenario, with his regular caddie, Kuch wouldn’t be paying anything out to a caddie that week.
  12. How do you know that? Do you know if Kuch pays his caddie a salary or 10%? How do you know their agreement? What if Kuchar pays his caddie a flat $300,000 a year? Then that $5k for a week would actually be 87%. Is el tucan worth 87% of John Woods 20 year experience?

  14. If you knew how to read you would have saved yourself from a lot of word diarrhea there. The $4k wasn’t on top, it was $4k TOTAL for a top 10. Therefore, per their agreement el tucan actually got $1k more than they even agreed to.
  15. So Matt understands simple contract law and you/others don’t? Good luck to El tucan ever getting a bag in this event again. If I needed a caddie for this event I sure as hell wouldn’t let this guy touch my bag.
  16. This is so stupid. How is the pre-tourney favorite winning the tournament a “windfall?” Kuchar made an offer and the caddie accepted that offer. If he wanted 10% he should have not accepted the offer because it didn’t stipulate 10%. This is very simple.
  17. What's the chance this gets rained out today and called at 54 holes? Or would they try to play tomorrow if they don't get any golf in today?
  18. Nah, why show teh guy leading the tournament by 4 shots when you can show Ray Romano and Bill Murray.
  19. Man, when I tuned in today I was just so excited to see Clay Walker (who?) make a 12 footer for par or Ray Romano hit a 130 yard approach into the bunker. Good coverage CBS! Have seen more shots from that elitist slob Bill Murray than any of the leaders other than spieth.
  20. Well that's awesome. Daniel Berger at -1 three putts from 28 feet on #9 to miss the cut by 1. How do you not just lag that within a foot or two and make the cut?
  21. This is one of my favorite courses I’ve ever played.
  22. That's what you're not getting. For a FLORIDA RESIDENT Streamsong is not a destination course. I'm not even really sure it is for non-residents. You keep throwing out actual destination golf courses/experiences like Pebble. There's a little more to do and see in Carmel, CA than bumfuck-nowhere, FL. There is no longer a summer rate at Streamsong like they used to have which was my previous point on this thread and another thread specifically on the topic. The whole "golf should be played waking" mentally is what's killing the game. No one my age wants to spend 4.5 hours walking. They want t

    I loved the RTJ Trail courses I have played in Alabama.
