Now that is a US open leaderboard.  Love it!!!  

The usual suspects lurking around should make for a fantastic Sundsy. 

Props to Bryson and his strategy.  Holy smokes so many 350 yard drives with accuracy.

I think Bryson probably is the other one to include in that list of guys have a better chance of going low. Certainly not my choice, but probably who I would put my money on. 

 

 

Same, as long as he can keep the drive straight (ish) with some good fortune he wins.  His putting was almost there yesterday and still put up a good score.  He should be due for a good putting day today, can he match it with the driver is my only question.  If so he wins.  

 

From 10 - 15 ft putting he is masterful.   Those putts are so critical in huge tourneys like this.  His lag putting he almost makes them a lot.  Regardless of his quest for length the guy can roll the rock extremely well, he's a natural at it.

The -5s struggle a little and this is wide open down to the evens, IMO - great looking leaderboard.  Yep, Poulter has a chance! 

 

Celebrated Father's Day early yesterday with visit from my Dad and later oldest daughter and I had a great 18 holes!  Kind of fun how much of the lunchtime/post-lunchtime reminiscing centered around golf over the years - always a big part of our lives.

 

Enjoying a nice pourover, watching the dog watch squirrels and not so patiently waiting for action to start!

 

 

 

 

technically W. Nienaber at +13 has a chance too

Yeah I really don't get the hate for Bland.

 

Of course chances were he was always going to fall back but he has obviously done well and is tied 21st.

 

These journeyman stories show how tough this game of golf is at the highest level.

 

same guys trashed rocco in '08 ... bleacher living is always fun ...

He's gaining some momentum for sure and seems pretty "in control", for Bryson - my daughter mentioned while watching some replay after golf that he seems (now that's "seems") to be more mature in a way.  Maybe it's just a yin to the yang of Bruce lately, but I enjoy listening to him.

yeah, he's looking, mentally & physically, more in control ... bit leaner in body and in tongue ...

I'll say it again and lightning will strike me down - get Brandel on the set!  These recycled puff pieces they've been showing over and over since Monday are driving me crazy!  I mean once or twice, okay, and some were interesting, but this is like "greatest hits because we just don't know what to say (or Brandel sent a memo that said nobody can talk about anything but the weather and introduce puff pieces)".

Just my IMO!  Unfortunately Stenson = zero chance!

Nienabar's golf swing though, wow, breath taking

Agree, I've seen the piece on Lanto Griffin 3 times now. Good story, but he's not contending and showing pre-recorded stuff isn't "Live" at all.

Well. I’m expecting Bryson or Rory to win this today.  I’d love to see Rory win by 7.

Anybody notice how most or a lot of the shots aren’t live ?  They show hideki hit his approach , cut to another guy putting , then 30 seconds later they cut to hideki rolling the putt from the approach he just hit.   Small thing. But odd.

-7 wins it. If you're not at -3 before the round starts, you have no chance. 

 

My guess is Louie shoots -2 and wins by 1

Isn't that normal? Can't show everything live during most of the broadcast when there are a bunch of groups out on the course. The good thing is unlike other sports, it doesn't really matter as long as the production crew does a good job of getting them on air in the proper sequence.

 In same amount of time it takes to post here asking “what irons does (whoever) play’. You could find the answer almost instantly… Maybe they just want to be included in the thread and can’t think of anything better to post?! 🤷🏼‍♂️😂 

This coming from someone that's been here a year? So many a holes around here these days.

 

Information isn't always up to date on the Titleist site. That's why I asked. Don't be dicks around here.

Noticed some delays yesterday - figured I'd missed a shot Spieth had near a green, come back and he's hitting it!

It is, but used to be "just a few moments ago . . ."  The one that real got my attention was minutes ago, lol.  And then we had the mini-features interrupting the action on a Saturday.  Hopefully today is cutting from action to action to action - I can dream!

Yeah, sometimes they will let you know when something's delayed but I assume much of the other shots are also not really "live". Tougher to tell these days with digital broadcasts as there's more delay built in and if you're using a streaming service that's typically getting you the video with even more of a delay than cable or OTA. I've noticed a few times watching the broadcast show someone with say a birdie putt. But looking at the usopen.com leader board, I can see their score and already know if they made/missed.

 

EDIT - like that Matsuyama putt, I had just seen on the web site he was 4 under...

Sorry to have offended you so. I wasn’t even responding to your post.  And I was actually here back when easyyy first left the other site and stated this site. Took a break, came back and was required re-register. That’s besides the point though. My post was accurate and relevant whether I was here a day or 12 years.   And you’re right, information isn’t always up to date on the Titleist site. Why I added the link from this site that was added recently. Hey, If you don’t want to Google and want to ask the board… God bless ya. It’s Fathers Day and I’m gonna watch some golf! ✌

Lol. What do they cost $3.74 each pair to make.  I don’t think fronting him shoes is a big deal.  
 

I think it’s hilarious that you mentioned him.  I have a pair of jordan iv and v ...  I also don’t look like an extra from grease.   Bubba showed me I could wear the shoes I had as a kid playing basketball too.  
 

I get it. It’s different perspectives.  I think the 20 something sneaker head is a well known view point.  I’m just trying to show that the OG guys can still wear them too , even if they don’t have full sleeves and  a mullet.  
 

 No offense meant by the way.  It’s just irks me a touch that the younger or hipper crowd wants to claim jordan shoes.   Whne it was us gym rats of the 80s and 90s that built it all.  

Why do you assume that I'm younger? I could be older than you for all you know. He looks ridiculous. It's like wearing a big purple cowboy hat with a brooks brothers suit. To each his own, but it just looks classless. Pat Perez has the style to match the shoes, unlike Bubba.
