Fortinet Championship

Didn't see a thread for this tournament so thought I'd start one. First event of the 2021-22 season, seems like a solid field 3 major champions from this year. 

 

Course: Silverado Resort and Spa

 

Par 72, 7166 yards

 

Notables in the field: Jon Rahm, Hideki Matsuyama, Phil Mickelson, Webb Simpson 

 

Last Year:  Stewart Cink shoots 65-65 on the weekend to win by a shot. 

 

SOF: 40 

 

It's fun to watch these fall tournaments, a lot of times a rookie comes out and gets an early win to lock up his tour card for 2 years. It'll be interesting to see how strong the fields are for these events this year compared to last year. I know a lot of guys played these events last year because the US Open and Masters were in the fall.  I do believe Shriners and CJ Cup will have strong fields since both are in Vegas. The ZOZO field will be weaker this year IMO with COVID still going on and travel restrictions.

Cink isn't defending his title this week. His oldest son is getting married this weekend.

Interesting stuff. I wonder who the last golfer was to not defend a title in a tournament they were exempt for? (i.e. not talking about Playoff events or Tournaments that have been discontinued) Probably Tiger in 2014 when he had his first back surgery.

2020. Cameron Champ (2019 winner of this same event) last season didn't defend his title at Silverado. There might be others in the recent past.

Interesting. Probably cause of COVID or just needed a break since the fall schedule last year was hectic.

Not C19 related. The Tour Championship ended on a Monday last year and the Safeway began the following Thursday.

 

https://golfweek.usatoday.com/2021/09/14/stewart-cink-why-not-defending-title-fortinet-championship/

 

This marks the second year in a row that the defending champion has not played. Cameron Champ, who won in 2019, skipped after making it to the Tour Championship, which ended on a Monday and the new season resumed that Thursday.

Oh yeah and the US Open was the week after. The fall schedule last year screwed up the schedules for a lot of players.

Yeah but he hit 3-4 drives that just rolled into the first cut. Overall not a bad day with the driver. If he can keep it north of 50% he'll be fine

Top 10 have a battle royale tomorrow and last man standing wins.

I am sad that I know what that means. But I’ll soothe myself by saying that it’s my 13 year olds fault. He plays , and building a supercharged pc for him to play it has taught me a lot.  Whne I say supercharged , I mean I’m ashamed of how much we spent on parts.  Was our year long covid project though.  So he earned most of the money to do it.  
 

I mean my first car was less than half price of this thing.  And had a smaller radiator , lol.

If it's that powerful, you should tell him to use it to start mining some bitcoin.  Maybe he could make few bucks.  🙂

      L.A.B. Golf is choosing ten GolfWRX members to receive their MEZZ.1 putter early and put their brand new product to the test before reporting back to the community about what they see. The selected testers will be one of the first to experience the MEZZ.1 from L.A.B. GOLF, their newest Lie Angle Balanced design, ahead of it's January 2022 launch!
       
      About The L.A.B. Golf Mezz.1 Putter
      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date. It includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow us to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.
       
      How To Apply
      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?
      2. Handicap?
      3. What is your current putter?
      4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter?
      5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter?
      6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos?
       
      That's it! @labgolf and GolfWRX will choose the testers in about 2 weeks! This testing event is for good-standing members in the USA only!
