Tommy Fleetwood tempting fate by putting up a 22 and leading the Par 3 Contest.

 

Is 22 a good score? I've never paid that much attention to what scores are actually posted.

 

Par is 27, so that would be -5. Pretty good. But I think there have been lower winning scores in the past.

Lowest winning score is 19 from Jimmy Walker in 2016. There have also been two winners that shot 20.

Looks like -5 will be tough to beat. That number has been good enough to win on many occasions. I'm surprised Fleetwood did not DQ himself with a caddy putt or something.

I think Tiger can putt these greens better than anyone else. If he wins that will be the reason. Phil needs to avoid the disaster hole and put a few birdie streaks together. Jordan needs to make every 4 footer and in. JT just needs to not have one of those 3-4 putt deals where he seems to lose focus. Bubba needs to be Bubba. DJ needs to make 6 Eagles. Rory needs to not give up on his rounds. Rahm has to stay aggressive , Jason Day get the early season magic back.Anybody else who wins will be a letdown for me. I know that excludes many top golfers but just how I feel. So let’s get this thing started. Go Tiger

Yep, although as has been lamented on the masters 4K thread, I can't get it to work on my tv. The masters YouTube channel has been incredible.

Ridley is off to a great start as chairman. YouTube channel including the 1968-2017 tournament footage plus the women's tournament. Great stuff. Just going to keep getting better in the future. :)

Indeed it has. Say what you want about crusty old white guys, somewhat limited network tourney coverage, etc., but their digital execution has been fantastic.

Mr. Ridley is a local tampa guy with some deep connections down here. A fine gentlemen that’s making all the right moves.

 

Notice some of the things that’s been done thua far for patrons since his arrival. Those masters footage on YouTube. A women’s tournament being held at augusta. Love it. Love it. Love it.

So close. Jordan just felt left out of the fun last time around.

I used to prefer cold over hot as well - then I lived in Jackson Hole for 8 years. I'm currently in DC, but in trying to find a way to get somewhere that is warm year round. When a high temperature of 20 gets you excited, it can get old after a while. So, what coastal town of Florida should I move to that has good golf and isn't super Florida-y?

 

Jackson Hole is a special kind of cold. Especially with that wind. I remember stepping out of my hotel warm to walk a few blocks to dinner only to feel my the cold penetrate into my bones within the first 100 feet.

anybody else just catch Jacks story on his green jacket ?

 

 

he said he was brought out a huge size the first time he won.... he assumed they would fit him for his personal one later ..the next year he shows up to the same size and inside was the name "Dewey" the Dewey that lost the presidential bid to truman after being declared an early winner.... so anyway

Jack says he never mentioned it .. wore it and at some point it came up in conversation years later that he had Deweys jacket all those years.....and finally in 1998 he was fit for the jacket he has now..lol one he doesnt need to roll the sleeves up on.... I admire that he didnt complain about it for all that time.... 1998 ...thats alot of years to wear a jacket that is 4 inches too long

Jack is pure class. He got off to a great start in this par 3 tourney. Looks like about 3 feet for birdie on #1.
