Yup. Just you

I lived in Japan for 27+ years. I knew Americans, Brits and Aussies who couldn't get on a bus in Japan after 20 years of living there. So, let's not get too judgmental.   Japanese are taught

Second time I lived here I had a regular foursome with three Japanese men.  Our common language was simple politeness in each others language and the common golf terms - 'good shot', etc.  Every now a

Here's just a couple other comments about Japan and golf and culture stuff. I trust the others here in Japan or who have spent time will validate this.   1. Matsuyama's caddie retrieved the

It's one of the worst shots you could ever imagine hitting - true. Especially after birds on the 4 previous holes. I imagine he will bounce back and win a major sometime though. He's too good.

 

He also hit a poor shot after Hideki put it in the water on 15.

Pushed it into the bunker.

If anything he was more nervous than Hideki was as soon as the door opened slightly.

Reminds me of Tommy Fleetwood - looks good until the pressure mounts.

Sometimes the order of play is a huge factor.  I don't know about Hideki if he has to go first on 16.  I think Xander and maybe his caddie made the call to go for it and put a ton of pressure on Hideki to have to make a huge shot.

That's the thing, though, there is no "going for it." It is not a difficult pin. If you push it a bit, you have a 6 foot par putt. It is just not a difficult golf shot. It is a difficult shot under Masters pressure only.

But, you still can't hit it where he did. If he hits 100 balls from there, any other time, zero go there. That's a choke.

I felt too that Xander had the best possible alignment of holes to catch him.  If you're down 2 shots with 3 to play the ideal scenario is three par 4s...the 2nd best is a 3 and two 4s.  You never want a 5 in there because even though you could make an eagle or birdie so can your opponent.  Par 4s are the easiest by far to pick up strokes with just one mistake

Shows that it happens to everyone...weekend hacker to top-tier pro. It wasn't a hard shot even for a high handicapper and yet into the water it went. I tend to hit pull hooks with my irons when I get nervous too...and Xander was nervous as heck.

I think everyone here would agree that they would’ve preferred seeing Bryson DeChambeCau win.

 

Ok, gotta run. Later!

Can we pony up for an interpreter so we don't have to hear Bryson talk anymore? Even if he doesn't want one?

 

Announcer: Bryson, tell us about your round?

 

Interpreter: (Total silence)

 

Bryson: (Uncomfortably waiting)

 

Announcer: Well, back to the action ...

Xander said to himself "I'm gonna knock this to 2' and he'll be rattled enough to bogey. I'll be tied with 2 to play."
