  1. No you don’t, that is absurd. Luck is an act of randomness. He hit two awful shots directly into the thicket and drew two magical lies. At least two errant approaches bounced off ridges to go close to the pin. Add to it that Speith handed him 3 shots on 17/18 yesterday.
  2. Morikawa with a major horseshoe up his a** today. Multiple absurd bounces and lucky lies after hitting two awful shots into the thickest possible rough. felt like Spieth gave this one away on 17/18 yesterday
  3. The pga was good no fans horrible camera angles terrible announcers no tiger Vanilla course that creates no moments or interesting shots/decisions no top players playing well blows
  4. I miss Johnny Miller
  5. lol Phil back where he had a 10 in 2008?
  6. What a boring tournament so far
  7. Matsuyama spraying all over the field to close... so f****** lucky on 13
  8. Way to butcher the greatest intro in sports with that song
  9. Paul Azinger is abysmal as an announcer, what I would give to have Johnny back
  10. Probably the most stress free round I’ve seen tiger play in a decade +
  11. congrats to you, to 90% or the viewing public it was a fact
  12. it took the air out of the entire tournament. Amazing shot, killed the excitement. Sorry it’s a fact.
  13. I can guarantee you it won’t even make the top 100
  14. Please... Spieth is one of the most magical players in the history of golf... really the only one we’ve had since Tiger/Phil. Morikawa is a nice player, plays an extremely boring style or golf (beautiful yes, boring most definitely)... lets see him win one of these with the pressure of 15.000 fans in the gallery before we crown him of anything.
  15. > @Nessism said: > Are we talking about tournament conditions or for every day play? In terms of the later, that extended rough would kill round times since there would be tons of lost balls. And how many of the people paying $550+/round would appreciate a baked out course? In general, was there a conscious effort to water pebble more to change its look from a traditional beach links to something more artificial or has pebble always looked like this and it just varies depending on how rainy the season is?
  16. The broadcasts comment on how much dryer the course looked like in 72 stood out to me. It seems that Pebble is a course that is designed to be played in somewhat baked conditions with wind and high fescue. Who else would like to see a dryer more naturally baked out look for this course?

Serious question, why are you so determined to call this guy a fluke? regardless of what happens tomorrow can you not recognize brilliant play when its in front of you? Rose has 1 putted from outside 7 feet like 13 times in 3 days.Is that luck? Tiger made like 250 feet of putts at torrey in 2008 on friday - saturday.

Was that just luck ? doing it when it matters is all that counts. We just see the game differently I guess. I’ve literally never seen what happened to Woodland in 30 years watching golf. After Watching that round I have to think Rose is the strong favorite.

    Woodland played the round of his life. Extremely lucky. Rose is the clear favorite.

    I don’t see the course stiffening up. The high is 60 degrees, partly cloudy with no wind all week. It’s not going to dry up. Weather will be a non factor.

    25 players under par and we are 2 hours into this thing. Low score today is going to be a 63.

    > @QuigleyDU said: > > @nicoy3k said: > > Way too effing easy. Lost of good lies in the rough. USGA are a bunch of pussies > > Jeez. it is like 30 min into day day one. Relax. It is cool and there is no wind. How hard do expect it to be this far into it? The US open has never relied on wind for difficulty. My issue is the rough and receptiveness of the greens.
