  1. anybody shooting even par today will do wonders for their final position!! Yuka Saso is +1 today after 8 and has already jumped 8 spots from T32 to T26!!
  2. As a Filipino I have high hopes for Bianca & Yuka to do well.. Yuka is the runaway leading money winner in the JLPGA tour this year with almost $900,000 in winnings and the individual & team gold medalist in the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta. She also tied for !st in the Asia-Pacific Women's Amateur but lost in a playoff and was also a former World Junior Girls Champion and is only 19... Bianca was with Yuka in the gold medal team in the 2018 Asian Games and is the individual and team gold medalist in the 2019 South East Asian Games(SeaGames).. She is 2
  3. I do not know how the majority here felt but I absolutely did not enjoy watching the coverage of this years Masters.. Without the spectators and the noise this was not only unappealing but no amount of great shotmaking and announcer's verbose articulation the the action and history of the event could make up for the lack of a gallery. I guess the best thing I can say about it is that it was better than nothing but if it is going to be the new "normal" I wouldn't be surprised if everyone involved in the the tv coverage better look for another job.. Sorry for my gloo
  4. The announcers better practice pronouncing Bianca's last name cuz they'll be saying it a lot pretty soon.. They'll probably give her a catchy moniker soon enough... ...."Bianca P" or just "BP" seems the easiest for now..

    2020 US Open

    this is still wide open.. I honestly feel the +1s or better still have chance depending onhow they do tomorrow.. my personal dark horse is Matsuyama..
  6. there's a 12-hour time difference between my country and Boston and 7 hours difference with Scotland .. TV coverage for the Women's British Open 4th day is 8pm-1am tonight while the Northern Trust is like 2:30am-6:30am tomorrow my time.. will try to finish the women's event till the end but am iffy on the men's...
  7. ..66(-5) & 67(-4) by Ally McDonald and Danielle King respectively among the early finishers far.. Low scores can be had today.. I'm excited !!
  8. I used to be a guest TV announcer for the live coverage of major golf events held here like our National Opens from 1975-1994 including the 1977 World Cup, the Johnny Walker Skins Game in 1990 ,the 1980 Marcos Invitational won by George Archer and the 1976 & 1977LPGA Colgate-Palmolive Invitationals.. As a hole announcer in the beginning my style was never to describe what the audience can see but rather what they could not--trying to describe their shot options, direction of the wind and putts, and other things that may have been going on in their minds, etc..... I was never one to read t
  9. after 2 events which I watched sporadically except for the last day I'm still kinda ambivalent about watching live coverage.. I guess my TV watching gas tank is running close to empty and can only be refilled by a Tiger sighting and the Majors !!
  10. good for Berger ... bummer for Morikawa and xander. very disappointed with Jordan, Justin and Rory....
  11. Fair question.. I still love the game but don't play much nowadays.. I guess I've kinda almost seen them all and after Tiger there's nobody on the horizon that keeps my interest much .. I do enjoy the "shot tracer" a lot though..
  12. I used to be a genuine golf addict in my younger days..(am 74 and have been playing golf since I was 12).. I would devour all the golf books, magazines and watch all the golf on TV I could from beginning to end.. Except for the majors I now cannot bring myself to watch any golf on TV except for the last day.. Anybody else feel the same??
  13. I remember watching Doug Sanders playing in our Philippine Open in the mid-60s and he was a flamboyant flashy player with a very short backswing.. He wore very colorful outfits and was very popular among the galleries specially the ladies.. He performed in an exhibition at the driving range after one of his rounds and I remember him hitting a 6-iron between the fork of a tree about 150 yards away..on his 2nd try. He lost to Peter Thomson that time in a play-off IIRC.. May he Rest in Peace..
  14. Luckily I have 2 main sports--Golf and Archery.. ....am shooting right now in my 25M backyard range and will join some tournaments this month...unless they're cancelled..
  15. fortunately I have 2 main sports--Golf and Archery .. right now I am shooting arrows at my backyard 25M range and will play in my indoor league in some scheduled tournaments--unless these are cancelled..
