  1. He's my favorite golfer and I hope he makes one last comeback to get to 18+ majors, but I don't see how he walks 72 holes at hilly courses like Augusta and competes with guys healthy and half his age. Hoping he proves me wrong.
  2. More money for the tour means more commercials for the viewers.
  3. Easier to heal in your 20's than 40's. I hope Tiger returns and gets to 18+ majors but it's not looking good.
  4. 1) The regular season points only get you into the playoffs. After that the playoff events should have no cuts and the top x players move on to the next week. 2) Change the field sizes to 70, 50, 30. No other sport let's everyone into the playoffs. 3) Use courses that have held majors. 4) Everyone starts at even par and whoever wins the Tour Championship wins the FedEx Cup.
  5. Liberty National's pro shop didn't have any Sim2 drivers? He could have just popped his shaft in it. Having said that he still averaged 300 yards with his 3 wood, two of those tee shots were 320 yards.
  6. The depression is setting in knowing the Masters is 8 months away.
  7. Have they explained why the field is only 60 players? It was like that in 2016 as well. Why not 144 or 156?
  8. According to your selection criteria, Xander wouldn't have even been invited. I think the US sent the best of what they had available. DJ and Koepka chose not to compete, Bryson was out with Covid. Only player left off was Speith but Reed was higher on the rankings at time of selection. As for Sabbatini, name a better golfer from Slovakia. I don't buy his argument on changing citizenship to "grow the game" but they allowed it and he ended up with silver.
  9. How you define best golfers? The players that chose to play on the US team are at the top of the world golf rankings for American players. You can't force players to play if they choose not to.
  10. What's your criteria for "best golfers"? I'm looking at the world golf ranking when they selected the golfers: 2) Johnson chose not to compete 3) Thomas 4) Morikawa 5) Schauffele 6) Dechambeau out with Covid 7) Cantlay can't find an article but assuming he chose not to compete 8 Koepka chose not to compete 9) Reed
  11. I guess I should have explained further but thought this went without saying, the Olympics are about identifying the best athletes by country every four years. My point was we should include both professionals and amateurs. Limiting it to only amateurs waters it down.
  12. I'm glad you used that example. I see the Olympics similar to the Masters or US/British Open. Where amateurs and professionals compete and the best score wins.
  13. I keep seeing people comment they are against professionals in the Olympics but why? A gold medal would be less prestigious knowing there is someone or multiple people that could beat the gold medal winner.
  14. Agreed, the Olympics are about identifying the best athletes on the planet every four years. How they "pay the bills" should not matter.
  15. I love the Sim2 fairway wood lineup this year. I got the 15* Sim2 Ti and Sim2 Max 7 and 9 woods. The 3 wood is an absolute rocket off the tee and easy to get airborne off the ground. The 7 and 9 woods have been a game changer for me on shots between 200 to 225 yards. Both are easy to get airborne and very accurate. They aren't hook biased like hybrids.
  16. Another year rejected....
  17. I think some of you are making too big a deal out of putting. I just looked at strokes gained putting this year, last year, and 2019. In 2021, only 3 of the top 10 have ever won a major. It was even worse in 2020. Bryson was the only player in the top 10 to ever win a major. Only 2 players in 2019.
  18. Were Heading Park's greens on the slow side? Trying to remember but I'm drawing a blank.
  19. That's all this is speculation sir. Having said that, prior to Morikawa, I was convinced if Tiger didn't get to 18 then no one in my lifetime would (I'm 36). The guy is only 24, no weaknesses, not a head case, and not a gym rat so should have a long career.
  20. Two years as a pro in the majors and already has two legs of the grand slam. Besides Tiger, I think he has a shot at getting to 18+ majors.
  21. Exactly what did Rory have to gain by going after the guy? I see two possible outcomes: 1) The guy had Rory's club in his hands and could have knocked Rory's teeth out with it. 2). Rory tackles the guy then gets charges pressed against him and sued for assault, has to waste time in court and put up with negative press.
  22. I thought it was staged at first as well but Bryson just blows it off as being funny and doesn't egg it on like Brooks does.
  23. Brooks never should have made this public. My concern is some wacko in the gallery harming the player they don't like. Security is severely lacking at these events. Look how easy it was to walk up and steal one of Rory's clubs.
  24. Welcome to the age of social media where some people will do anything for a view or like.
  25. I guess Phil doesn't want his first US Open win to come from the Senior US Open.
