 She can’t putt most weeks from what I’ve watched, and she and her sister are taking longer and longer to read the greens.

I don’t remember her being as “meticulous” a few years ago….

 

This is my biggest gripe, when Brooke came on tour she did everything herself and each year Brit got more involved.  Brit was on the Symetra/Epson tour when she started looping for Brooke, so if she was a great putter and on the feeder tour she would almost certainly make the big tour lol.  I'm hoping the newly married Brittany is gonna wanna start a family very soon.  Even a break from each other might help things out a bit.  I'll give Brittany to @18majors and Yealimi, from what I understand she need a steady caddie and Brit is a good caddie just a little too much control over Brooke's game.  And Yealimi and Brooke have both basically a similar skill sets with what they do, so Brit might help someone like Yealimi.  And for Brooke I would go with Alena Sharp's wife and caddie, Brooke is very comfortable with her and an in form Brooke and 10% is a financial opportunity lol

Perhaps Brooke just injured herself and needed a month off.   She says illness which it could have been but sounds like she's being coy and describing an injury.  She looked fine too me but what do I know lol I'm old school, if all the limbs are still attached you can play 😇

@Stooch... so... based on the above ... would Brooke _not_ be a good pick, for @Golf Dino's USWO Player Pool?

Past history, after a break she usually comes back strong but her biggest issues the last 3-4 events is what will hurt you here.  Her approaches have been a little loose and her putting was horrible.  So, IMO she should bounce back and make the cut and she does have 3 Top 10's and a 13th at the US Open in 7 times playing it, so as a strong ballstriker she usually does well at this event.  I'm thinking I'm gonna take her with my last pick cause she's my fav. but not sure I would pick Brooke if money was involved, with her form right now lol

Good win for Brooke.  Looked like she was going to throw it away after that 4 putt, but came back and closed it out.  The putter she has now seems to be better for her.  Time will tell.

Saturday and Sunday, waiting on the groups in front.   There were some bad holes that slowed several groups down -- #16 was one of them . . . a complete mess with on player taking a triple bogey, another took a nine on that hole (par 3) . . . plenty struggled with it so that creates a bottleneck . . . there were a couple of other holes on the front.

So the recording I thought I was watching was actually an early part of the final round, thus not really much of the final group.  Has she gotten back to playing fast?  It was getting to be absolutely brutal there with how long she took to play.

 

 

Playing fast? Hardly. I use my '30 second skip' function on my remote when the camera cuts to a player. With Nelly, I usually have to rewind 10 seconds, as the ball is in the air. Several times over the weekend I skipped 30 seconds when it was Brooke's turn to hit, and she was still chatting away. Another tap on the button, and still no shot. More than a handful of times she took 1:30 or more to pull the trigger.

From the live telecast, the amount of time it took Brooke and SYR to play was approximately 4:12 (4hrs 12 minutes) from Brooke's opening tee shot to So Yeon's last putt.  And that is with plenty of waiting on the tee box.  So no, not slow at all.  Could it be quicker?  Yes, but then it becomes a case of "hurry up to wait".   As i stated above, there were bottlenecks created by certain holes where players got into plenty of trouble.    The entire telecast (at least the one I watched) was a total of 5:37 and started an hour before the final group.

4:12 is a pretty fast tournament time, whatever the level of golf.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
