"PGA journeyman now informs USGA he will no longer need a special exemption"

I thought this was going to be about jason day.    Pga tour journeyman...lol.    Phil will miss the cut. He thinks he needs to hit 350 yard draws all day. He may be more wild off t

Good for him and good for the USGA.  Phil has meant a ton to golf and specifically ton to golf in San Diego.  While I get the argument regarding the taking a spot from someone who earned it, there com

Good for Phil.  Its likely his final US Open, so good on the USGA for letting Phil play in what is essentially his own backyard.

 

Unlike someone like Rickie Fowler, Phil has actually won some professional tournaments in the past year.  I suspect he'll play well in an effort to validate the invite.

Phil's constant trolling of the USGA and the US Open is actually very endearing. LOL

 

Remember when he said a few years back that guys would start skipping it in order to protect their wrists from the rough?

It's a little late now to practice a suitable game plan, but had he not been wasting all this time on "dropping bombs" and learned to hit more fairways, he might have actually had a chance.

 

Ok, I am kidding, he never really had a chance this year.  But good for him he gets in with an exemption.  Good for the fans if and only if he plays some decent golf.

The title 😂

 

Phil does invite the mockery himself though, through some of his laughable statements these days.  I don't hate the guy or anything, but he does spew some choice BS.

 Plus the college admissions thing , insider trading etc

  Fine golfer but hard to like

 

  Whereas Rickie- ok player but likeable

Journeyman? What planet are you living on?


Planet sarcasm. It is fun here, you should check it out. 😅

Someone tweet at Phil and demand he leave all the drivers at home. Get out there with a 2-wood and some long irons and keep the ball on the ground. Watching Phil refuse to accept that the driver and his approach to it only hurts him is frustrating. Obama was president the last time he gained strokes off the tee, and even that was BARELY.

Has the USGA stopped inviting the U.S. Senior Open champ to the U.S. Open? Seems to be the case. It's no longer listed as an official exemption.

 

Easy explanation. There was no US Senior Open played in 2020. Nobody to give the exemption to. Steve Stricker won the last US Senior Open in 2019 and played the US Open at Winged Foot last year.

He's lucky he's that highly rated. One good event from out of nowhere last year (WGC Memphis) is the only thing that's keeping from being rated in the 190's in the OWGR.

Considering you are not the original poster, how would you know it is "sarcasm"?
