  1. Really? It's a career long trend for JR. Justin Rose has led the Masters 4 times after the first round including 2021. Has won none of them. He has been tied for/led outright 20 PGA Tour events including the Masters. He has won 2 of those events. Business as usual. Great stat about Rose leading the Masters after the first round...... It's the third time Rose has held the outright first-round lead at the Masters, which ties him with Jack Nicklaus, Jordan Spieth and Lloyd Mangrum for most of all time. In the previous three instances in which Rose had at least a share of t
  2. I've never been on that part of Clever Rd. Looks like its a high speed zone on google maps. Only part of Clever I've been on is the short part of it from the light at Giant Eagle to Fairhaven on the way to Ricci's.
  3. Just saw this tonight. First off glad you survived the accident, were able to recover/rehab your injuries and are still able to golf. Hopefully with no long term health issues. Being from Western PA myself and seeing the PAT Transit bus stop signs in the background where did your accident take place? DM if needed. Again glad you are okay.
  4. Had forgotten about that video. IIRC it was done before the 2019 ZOZO event that Tiger won and Hideki finished 2nd.
  5. Appears 2007 was the only time Bubba played this event. M/C.

    Exactly. That was Matsuyama's first win since 2017.
  7. Zalatoris already has his tour card and is fully exempt on the PGA Tour for 2021/2022. He doesn't have to continue to perform to get his tour card.
  8. Possibly. His last reported deal with Ping was in 2018 that included the 11 club clause/driver/putter deal information above. Nothing new reported on his club deal since 2018. As reported earlier PING no longer requires a 14 club deal with its staff players.

    It's a great moment. It's also been posted/embedded a couple of times in the main Masters thread.
  10. Champ led the field in driving distance as the Masters this week. Used a 44.25 inch driver. Champ In the past has used a 43.5 inch driver. https://golf.com/gear/putters/hideki-masters-tiger-woods-masters-gear-change/ Cameron Champ returned to Project X’s HZRDUS Smoke Green in his Ping G425 LST driver (9.95 degrees actual loft) after testing the shaft at home in advance of the Masters. The combination of a familiar shaft and shorter length — 44.25 inches instead of 45 inches — produced a more stable driver with less curve. Champ led the field in driving distance (32
  11. One would hope so especially as there are 6 captains picks this year. Of course that also opens it up more for the USA Team to again waste a captains pick on an older player based on name recognition that no longer deserves to be chosen.
  12. He already has qualified for the PGA Tour for next year. You qualify on Fed Ex Cup points not money. As a non member of the tour he currently is not eligible for the Fed Ex Cup playoffs unless he wins a tour event prior to the start of the Fed Ex Cup in August.
  13. Can't use the name or likeness of Hideki for advertising as he is not paid by Cameron/Titleist. Happens all the time in golf.

  15. Not so. They are completely separate companies. Carls does use 2ndswing for their trade in value guide.
  16. He didn't find a loophole. There are a few guys that earned their card in the last couple of years via the Special Temporary Membership category that didn't qualify for the Fed Ex Cup playoffs. Matthew Fitzpatrick, Doc Redman, Joaquin Nieman, Jon Rahm to name a few. No need for the PGA Tour to do anything about this.
  17. Pedigree obviously didn't matter much between Hoffman and Rose this weekend. JRose falling off simply backed up his numbers of not getting the job done after many first round leads and Master's leaders by multiple strokes after the first round. So JR now has 20 first round leads on the PGA Tour and has won 2 of those events and he is now 0-4 in the Masters after holding part of the first round lead. At times numbers/trends have meaning and are correct.
  18. If you say so. His record says otherwise.
  19. LOL! this again. The best players in the world can and do have wild score swings between consecutive rounds all of the time and yet players that aren't professionals get upset about it. It's golf. FWIW Francesco Molinari just went 69-81 in the 3rd/4th rounds at Augusta.
  20. He already is. He has 6 PGA Tour wins including a major. He became the all time winningest Japanese player on the PGA Tour in 2017 when he won his 4th event. Just keeps adding to his lead. Shigeki Maruyama is 2nd on that list with 3 PGA Tour wins.
  21. And yet Tiger even when healthy and playing some of his best golf wasn't able to win the Masters from after 2005 until 2019.
  22. Matsuyama can speak English fine. He just isn't comfortable doing it in an interview setting. He will be fine at the Champions dinner.
  23. No for the ball. Unsure on the clubs. Keegan Bradley won the 2011 PGA Championship using the Z-Star ball.
  24. IIRC some years back he used a Piretti when he won the Fed Ex Cup and was a distributor in Europe. However Stenson has gamed Odyssey putters for years.
