I’ve heard that, shocking and frustrating. There was no golf on Irish TV the first day but this morning they showed the end of McIlroy and Lowry’s rounds live which was nice. Imagine they will show it at the weekend as it’s a good medal chance for us.

 

It has been beyond woeful, literally little point in them even acknowledging that it is going ahead for as much as they show of it. I have genuinely seen more coverage of dancing horses than I have of golf so far.

I was cracking up at how ridiculous those Italian kits look. The trucker flap girls are hilarious.

How you define best golfers?  The players that chose to play on the US  team are at the top of the world golf rankings for American players.   You can't force players to play if they choose not to.

To me it would be the leading major winners in my book.  You’d need DJ , Brooks , Spieth , and Colin. He’s the only one I see as being the right one.  As much as I like both Xander snd Reed , neither qualify over the 4 above. In my opinion.

So you think the real reason Rory is not wearing a hat is???

Right.  The whole “ doesn’t want to display the Irish logo “ thing doesn’t work. If so he’d  also be shirtless.

Not to mention that Rory made the same comment back in 2016 when he went hatless in the Ryder Cup:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ftw/2016/12/27/rory-mcilroy-has-a-perfectly-reasonable-and-hilarious-explanation-for-not-wearing-a-hat-during-the-ryder-cup/95881872/

 

The darkest conspiracy theory I can come up with is that he just really doesn't like wearing hats, but doesn't want people to view him as a sell-out for wearing them anyways to get the sponsorship money.

No idea, but the hat not fitting in BS for sure...

Maybe he doesn't like wearing a hat, and since he has no sponsor requirement for the Olympics and the Ryder Cup he chooses not to wear one?  Rory likes sporting the hatless '70s style when Jack, Watson and all they guys with shaggy hair didn't like getting hat head.  🙂  Just a theory.  I have a buddy who never wears a hat while playing, just doesn't like them.

Yep.  And I get that.  I’m not a big hat fan. Only recently started wearing one for sun exposure reasons.  But it’s more comfortable with no hat and just  sunglasses.  I hate wearing both.  I have thick hair and it’s a constant itch and fidget.

I dislike wearing hats...but if a sponsor paid me, I would quickly change my tune.  Rory can't be the only pro who dislikes wearing them...aside from Robert Rock!

 

I've never been a huge fan of the baseball cap being adopted by every sport, and in everyday wear...but clearly I'm in a tiny minority here.

 

But I draw the line at the backwards baseball cap...which should ONLY be worn by catchers.

Don't forget Ollie Schniederjans.

 

https://www.cbssports.com/golf/news/why-does-ollie-schniederjans-not-wear-a-hat/

 

Even though he signed with Callaway, Schniederjans explained why he still won't wear a hat. "I stopped wearing a hat when I quit baseball when I was 12," said Schniederjans. "I never liked wearing a hat. And it's just me doing me, and I'm comfortable with it. And I don't feel like changing a whole lot because I'm professional. I like how I feel and look, and I haven't worn a hat since I was 12, so I didn't feel like throwing one on right now." “There are things more important than sponsors,” he added later.

Forget the BBC for coverage. Eurosport red button or app has a dedicated option of racket sports & golf.

I can't imagine dying on the hill of decisions I made when I was 12 for the rest of my life. Not to mention the very real threat of melanoma that golfers deal with spending so much time in the sun. Very silly of Ollie.

It’s funny, Ollie wears a hat out in public all the time. He said he doesn’t like wearing one while playing because he feels like he’s looking at the bill when addressing the ball

I'd give anything to see Si Woo Kim and Sungjae Im in a playoff for the bronze medal.

Zinger gets a lead medal. Man. They should pay him not to talk. 

 

 

And is that….

 

Rory Sabatini?

Thank god, thought I was going crazy. Zinger needs a muzzle. Guy is just awful and doesn't have to explain everything with some Feherety type d-bag response.

In a purely real estate measure, what is that golf course worth?  I've seen staggering numbers about LACC, in Japan, an hour outside Tokyo, the value could be even greater.

 

Ha! Heard a story (it was a 3 or 4 decades ago) about Japanese land prices. Australia had its Embassy in Tokyo. They had it for decades. Was almost a whole city block. They decided to re-do their building, sold off half their land (they didn't think they needed that much space, so they kind of cut their embassy in half).

 

So, with the money they made from half of block in Tokyo, they paid off the entire Australian national debt. Land is ridiculous. 

 

You can easily get a 40 year mortgage for a decent house in some cities - multi-generational ... on your death, your children will inherit both the house and the rest of the mortgage payments. Which is nothing ... in the 1980s and 90s, the 100 year mortgage was created (seriously). Its not really around anymore, but ... man, Japan is an odd place.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
