Everyone's dislike and disregard for the PGA maybe the thing I am most dumbfounded by at the moment. Someone asked earlier if it's ever been in the best major in a single year. Really?

 

I just don't get where it all comes from? Every major can't be the best one. The PGA more than holds its own in my opinion. And replace it with The Players? I won't even dignify that idea with a response.

I have some predictions:

 

-People will hate the coverage

-People will hate the winning score

-People will hate the winner because of something he did

-People will hate that a penalty wasn't called for something

-People will hate guys who didn't win the tournament for being happy for the guy who did

-People will hate the setup and call it a joke

 

You forgot people will hate it is played in the U.S.

People will hate the fact it's still a major

People will hate every on-course commentator and the color analyst

People will find a reason to discuss how a player treats his caddie and hate him for it.

People will hate the way the course is set up

People will hate the person doing the trophy presentation

People will hate that there are commercials on a televised sporting event

People will hate how Brandel analyses ANYTHING about the tournament, and ANYTHING to do with ANYONES swing or game.

People will hate anyone who wins for some reason that we can't fathom at this point in time.

 

I can't wait, this will be great.

I pick 14 of the following:
Ping G400
Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood
Ping G 400 4 hybrid
Ping G 4-U
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 54, 58 SS
Grips NDMC +4
Odyssey Pro #1 black
Hoofer
ProV1x-mostly
ECCO Biom Hybrid 3

I predict it will take me at least ten minutes on Thursday to remember that the early rounds are on TNT.

LOL! Guaranteed for the 1st and likely the 2nd round as well somebody here will be freaking out that they can't find it on TV. In spite of TNT (originally TBS) televising the early rounds of the PGA since 1991. Same thing will happen for the early coverage for rounds 3 and 4 on TNT. A tradition unlike any other.

2000 PGA, Tiger vs Bob May best major of the year and it set up a chance at a Tiger slam.

 

I can see Fowler, DJ and maybe Rory, although changing your caddie to your buddie is not working out yet for Phil, so you never now. Should be fun to watch.

The weather forecast is not good at all, with thunderstorms expected throughout the entire championship, and stifling humidity. The course will be softened considerably.

 

Hello friends, this is Jim Nantz at Quail Hollow. There is still weather in the area as we try to get the third round completed in the PGA Championship. We'll come back on the air when they are ready to resume play, but for now let's take you to The Price is Right already in progress.
