Seriously though every week there has been a thread dedicated to the upcoming tournament. That’s all, nothing “middle schoolish” meant on my end. Keep this one. IRDC. 

 

I know, and MattyO1984 usually authors it.  The routine was broken.  I get it.

 

But I'm sure once the tournament kicks off, the same stuff will be discussed regardless of the title/author of the thread, right?

 

Just sounded a little cliquish, that's all.

I must say MattyO1984 does a good job. I was trying to have some fun with it and didn't actually expect this to get to multiple page. Starting next week I'll let him takeover because he kills it.

I wouldn’t mind if he’d yield the personal opines from the first post though. Report the facts then state your opinion. If you think I’da money grab great if you wave see Arnie highlights even better just for comment two

He doesn’t get paid to write the post. You could just skip over the opinion part of it.

I actually enjoyed Chambers Bay and the best players rose to the top so seemed to be a fair test, sure better greens would have been nice thou

 

Me too. I don`t mind the that the greens weren`t true. How many of us have that privilege every round? It`s sure nice when you are putting on perfect greens, but last I checked the US Open isn`t supposed to be nice. And, like you said the cream seemed to rise to the top that week despite the conditions.

I know this will probably get lost in the mix here, but serious questions about Sawgrass.  It seems to get a lot of negative attention, often called "gimmicky", etc. 

 

Is it because it's a Dye design and not a Tillinghast, Ross, or MacKenzie (old school famous)? 

Is it the island green 17th? 

If so, does 1 hole make an entire course gimmicky? 

Is an island green any more gimmicky than coffin bunkers or pot bunkers?

Do the Tour players hate the course, only playing it because of the purse, or do they like it?

 

Obviously opinions and tastes vary, so I'm genuinely curious.  After watching the detailed hole-by-hole above, it seems like a pretty sweet course.  I don't think it's resort course-y or gimmicky, but that's just me.

I hope you get some knowledgable and equally thoughtful feedback. My own attempts at seriousness haven’t gone over very well around here.  But there are some some smart and informed participants who occasionally share really good stuff on this forum, so I keep reading. 

Am I a part of the "smart" group?  Please, I really want to be.

I think most of the "gimmicky" accusations stem from the 17th, and the fact that although many courses are made by moving a bunch of dirt around, it's a bit more obvious on some parts of this one.

 

I like it though, and don't mind having one course like this on Tour.  But just one of them mind you ☝️

Feel free to jump in @KRAMER1997! Being in the UK, I tend to be on here on a Monday morning a good few hours before most guys so I had just been doing it to be helpful (and to avoid work first thing on a Monday morning 😂).

I figure that by adding in a little opinion it might get a discussion going. I always though that posting a thread and then adding the first comment risked me coming across as self indulgent and whilst I am, I don't want to make it seem that obvious!

Ah, time for the faux major on a faux golf course. One good thing about this tourney is it means a real major is just weeks away.

 

As you can tell, not a fan of this course, but whatever, to each his own. They ruined a perfectly good Florida swamp when they built this place.

 

 

How so?  Not disagreeing with you necessarily, I'm not a good enough golfer to understand why someone might hold this opinion so genuinely curious.

I was the OG tournament thread creator. Show some r'spect!

 

 

Also, never forget the day I made and April Fool's joke thread about Tiger needing surgery on his back that ended up becoming real a few hours later! I stopped making fake, negative predictions that day!

 

You did a good job with those threads!

I kind of like the gimmicky nature of this one course, and think it suits this event well.  As long as they just keep it to this one course/event.

 

I wouldn't like it if other tour stops started going the gimmicky route, but that doesn't seem to be happening.

 

Other than one hole perhaps that we all know well, what is gimmicky about it?

So Bryson is talking about hitting into 9 fairway from 18 tee.....local rule incoming!

 

Thought there would be more discussion about this here?   So, they did make a local rule?  Thoughts?    It seems like it's more about keeping the spirit of the course intact and not just because of his power.   Theoretically, couldn't a lot of guys go left of the water and have an easier shot in?

 

TBH, I'm surprised this kind of thing isn't done more often on a lot of courses where it seems like you could purposely hit into the wrong fairway.

Wow, OP really doesn't like Arnie's event.  

 

Nice job on the major "bait", though, but it's just a really nice event with a fun and surprisingly diabolical hole (well, fans seem to think it's fun only if guys miss the green, haha) that's screwing with the schedule thanks to Tim Finchem.

 

I hope this calculation helps.

 

 

KRAMER and BAY HILL  = FERG and PHIL
