  1. Posted earlier in the thread but didn’t get any response - anyone here attend any practice rounds or today? Curious how “normal” things are relative to previous years. Heard you can’t leave chairs unattended, how strict is that? Any normal viewing areas roped off? Merchandise/concessions normal (bag check/shipping available)?
  2. Inches? Funny he was really emphasizing yardage in his interview (which was definitely an issue but to me, seemed a bit deflective and humping blame on his caddie instead of just owning his shite round), but on 4 he was so far right you never see anyone hitting from over there. He was spraying it all over, though his drive on 18 was a thing of beauty.
  3. Anyone here lucky to attend a practice or tournament round this year? Any reports back of how it was in terms of crowd size, seating, covid related restrictions, etc

Smooooooth swing and the ball FLEW off the face and didn't seem to curve an inch. It was unreal. Yeah seeing Louis hit driver up closer is a good one as well. Silky smooth. I’m a huge DJ fan, so some bias in here, but when you watch the flight is his ball compared to others it’s insane. So high and so far compared to his playing partners. Bubba is cool to watch hit driver too up close considering his funky swing and obviously he can launch

Obviously we wont know if tiger, rory, and DJ will be there or not on Sunday but I would like to follow them for a while if possible then find a good spot to watch the leaders come down the stretch. > > > > Has anyone been to bethpage or other events and have any good tips to make my experience a good one? > > My #1 advice, especially if it's sunny/warm is DRINK TONS OF WATER.

  7. Following Tiger or Rory will be tough. As others have said the crowds are insane. To be honest I don’t know why people even bother, no chance you’re getting that great of a view doing that. Way too much work. Haven’t been to Bethpage so not sure of how “spectator friendly” the layout is compared to Augusta National, TPC Sawgrass, etc where the mounds and hills around greens make it much easier to see the action even if there are people in front of you. Since so many people follow Tiger’s every shot you don’t even need to go too far ahead to see him from a good vantage point. If while he’

He flew from Wisconsin to Las Vegas earlier in the week to place the wager, which he claims to be his first-ever bet on sports in his life. A man with a mortgage on his house, two student loans and two car loans decided he would take $85,000, which he said was "everything I had that I could afford to lose," and place

As someone else mentioned a few posts back, the putt on 9 was unreal. I just so happened to be standing pretty much dead in line with the ball as it tracked toward the hole.

  11. What a Sunday. As someone else mentioned a few posts back, the putt on 9 was unreal. I just so happened to be standing pretty much dead in line with the ball as it tracked toward the hole. It was as if time stood still for what felt like an eternity hoping that putt would fall. Said to a few friends after I left that was probably the best shot I’ve ever seen in person. Caught the final few groups tee of on two, standing right on the ropes about even with the tee markers. I need to look up how far DJs drive went. I know it ended up just off the left side, but my god he crushed that thing, mi
  12. Surprisingly turned out to be an awesome day. Seemed like the majority of people had the same plan, get there as early as possible and maximize the time on the course while praying for rain to hold off. Gates definitely open earlier than stated on their website so worth it to be parked and ready to go in by 7AM. We were in and done shopping by 8am. Walked around a ton and were just about ready to camp out at our chairs on 9 green for the rest of the day when the sirens went off for weather. All in all after looking at some terrible weather forecasts it turned out great. Can’t wait
  13. > @Glaze22 said: > I am going to the Tuesday practice round and the weather keeps changing from 40% to 90% chance of rain, I am thinking it will stay closer to the 80%-90%. I am taking my father in-law and he does not know it yet and it will be his first time. How bad does it have to get before they close the course down for rain? If there is thunder will they close it down, I know they will for lightning? I would just hate to get there and not be able to go in or get anything from the shop. I am pretty sure if they close the course down they also close the shops, right??? > >
  14. Yep I was driving home listening to radio coverage and heard an f bomb in the background. I’d have been muttering far worse.
  15. As a big Rory fan this is somewhat my fear, they showed his last 6 starts and he’s been killing it. Finally gets the W. I’m nervous he may have hit his peak too soon? A month is a long time I completely agree. You mention other players getting hot, random bounces etc. if Rahm, fleetwood, and a few others don’t stink up the joint today there’s a good chance we’re talking about another Rory Sunday failure right now instead of a win. But all that being said I think him winning today should be a huge boost for him at the Masters. His comments after the round today really made me believe he will
