The Genesis Invitational 2021

I’m really thinking the greens on 14 and 15 need to be re done. Maybe members here can chime in.. But for this tournament, players never get it close on those holes when pins are in certain locations.
 

Just based on that, the greens don’t need reshaping.. It’s that almost all the players hit it in exact same spot. 
 

On 14 when the pin is right, the ball runs out long and middle. A few guys missed in the short right bunker. I used to love watching Freddie Couples peal a high cut off the right edge of the left bunker to a back left pin. It was beautiful and he did it ever time. All the best players did it. Now, it’s a par fest.

 

On 15, that run-off area in the middle of the green ruins any chances for carving it in there close. Now, we’re seeing guys with 110 yds into that hole (crazy) and it’s still another par fest. 
 

I don’t mind par, I like it. But there’s no variety on those holes. At least on 10, golf balls are hit all over that parcel of land, and it’s fun to see!

The guys that WD'd were smart because playing in wind like that can make a mess of your swing that can take time to recover from.  The first time I played Desert Dunes in Desert Hot Springs (desert links style course) it was blowing about a steady 35 with gusts to 45 or so and it was just comical.  The guy that shot the 78 in that tourney must be a hell of a stick.

They are professionals ... doubt one week of wind matters

The event I was discussing with others, the SCGA ToC tournament was for the winners of club championships with indexes of 2.4 or lower.  So no, they were not professionals.

You may want to stop watching an event with a purse of 9.3 million dollars if that's the case.


You’d think huh. But they don’t talk about money anymore. Not at all really. I honestly think the only time I’ve heard it mentioned was last week during a Jordan Spieth don’t talk to my girlfriend that way moment when the announcers reinterred some tweet shoveling the narrative that there’s nothing to see here.. something about how since his major meltdown all he’s made is $9 million in earnings the past four years - not bad. Not bad, he must play for the money. 

 

Ehh no, I’m okay watching, but thanks for lookin out 😉

That’s Golf Channel’s new 2021 on air talent. I caught the pre game early this week, and this is her first week with the mic. Kira something. Very easy going. Like, she’s so firmly in spiritual bliss you’d never even reconsider being in a foul mood around her after an awful round.

Kira Dixon. Her golf credentials are uncertain, but she's no dummy, though her vocal delivery leaves something to be desired. I'm sure she'll improve. From Wiki:

 

Kira Dixon (née Kazantsev; born July 20, 1991) is an American beauty pageant titleholder who won Miss America 2015 on September 14, 2014. She is the third consecutive Miss America winner from New York and had won the title of Miss New York on May 24, 2014 while serving as Miss City of New York.

 

Kazantsev was born on July 20, 1991 in San Francisco, California, to Russian immigrants who left Moscow in 1990 for the United States, making her a first-generation American.[1][2][3] Her father, George, is a general surgeon and her mother, Julia (née Afrikian), is a real-estate broker.[4][5] She has one brother named Boris, who is eight years younger.[5] Kazantsev is trilingual, being fluent in English, Russian, and Spanish.[6]

She graduated from Las Lomas High School in Walnut Creek, California and served as the student body president in 2009.[7] She attended Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York with a triple major in political science, global studies, and geography.[8] She joined the Alpha Phi Sorority during her time at Hofstra, but was eventually removed from the sorority by the university due to concerns over hazing.[9] During junior year at Hofstra University, she studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain.[5] After graduating from Hofstra, Kazantsev applied to numerous law schools and was accepted to Notre Dame Law School and Fordham Law School.[10] She stated in interviews, after being named Miss America 2015, her desire to specialize in international law upon receiving her J.D. degree.[11]

In the summer of 2017, Kazantsev attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business completing the Stanford Ignite entrepreneurship program, which is a "suite of certificate programs that teaches innovators to formulate, develop, and commercialize their ideas."[12][13]

In September 2014, relying on unnamed sources, Jezebel published a piece stating that, while at Hofstra University, Kazantsev was expelled from the Alpha Phi sorority for hazing.[20] On Good Morning America, Kazantsev admitted her involvement in activities that fit the "broad definition of hazing," but denied the allegations of abuse, describing the hazing at Alpha Phi as "menial tasks."[21][22][23] In her personal blog, Kazantsev wrote that not attending national Alpha Phi's judiciary hearing of her case was the official reason for the termination.[24][25]

Yea, not seeing a lot of golf credentials from that. Maybe it's not necessary anymore to cover golf for the NBC/Golf Channel 😉

I played in tourney today at Rustic. It got fiercely windy, ball wouldn't stay still on the green, judging distances was impossible. On fast greens, wind is an intense factor - especially with slope. Driving on 405 enroute to play, wind was even worse - that's when they blew the horn at Riviera.  

Oh man, the back 9 at Rustic would have been nuts yesterday. The greens (especially anything middle to front) at Los Angeles Wilson GC were borderline unplayable yesterday. And those are bumpy as heck!!  Those smooth Riv greens don't stand a chance in those conditions.

In college most guys would hit a hybrid or maybe 3 wood off of #1. The long guys, 2 and 3 irons. And you are still hitting an iron into the green. This was almost 15 years ago. It is par 4 yardage today and has been for a while. Hence the super narrow fairway as well.

I heard they were 5G towers to control your brainwaves so you buy brands that you see a player wearing or using...

 

Aluminum foil wrapped on your head will reflect the waves.

I thought the 5G towers just activated the chips implanted with the Covid vaccine?! Can’t keep up with this 5G technology anymore 😫 Either way, foil hat firmly on head!

Finau! Make me eat my words Finau! You can do it!!

 

I don’t know what I’m watching anymore.. there is zero broadcast transition from one thing to the next, from what I can tell. We go from live coverage this morning, to a replay of yesterday, to the range today, to final round coverage, to Greatest Rounds.. and I don’t recall accidentally pressing any buttons.. I’m lost

Keep expectations low and enjoy the golf they show. You can count on them showing the leaders group at least. Considering the last year we’ve had, I’m still at the point where I’m just happy there is PGA golf on period. I know this positive outlook doesn’t make me a productive part of the internet experience. Oh well. 
Go Tony!
