AC seemed to think the crowds were because he was coming back from a two week vacation, could have been something else......

His caddy Kip Henley is a good follow, pretty funny.

If he putts like that, it'll be a short week for him.


Is the Barn Rat in the field this week?  If he is, he's my pick.

WTH is wrong with Spieth these days? I just watched him blow an easy 3 foot par put to go +5 over after 13 holes in the first round. He hasn't been worth a crap lately that I have seen. Has he changed swing coaches, or his caddy or what?

Yep. 

Spieth's success had been built on incredible putting, some of the most outrageous displays anyone has ever seen.  Rory can overpower a course, but Jordan needs to put well to separate himself.

There was that year Jordan could not miss a putt and it just wasn't the putts. When he got in trouble not only did he just get out of it, he got out of it well.

Rory on the other hand, just makes you scratch your head.  I have never seen a pro golfer hit as many poor second shots from position A in the fairway than him.  There is not such thing as a sure two putt from anywhere when he has the putter in hand and so far this year, his card has doubles and triples sprinkled every round it seems.

I've never seen a great player...and I would say four majors qualifies him as great...who misses as many putts inside six feet.  When Rory isn't on one of his hot streaks he is a downright awful putter.

I think Rory and Jordan don't have the competitive fire of a jack or tiger.   Tiger has his dad pushing him hard too at their ages.  They had early success, are top golfers in the world, and can turn it on when they want too, so they are enjoying life more than maybe a tiger did at that age. 

That's my opinion.

This is just my opinion and of course it is just speculation but I wouldn't be surprised if Woods father used the racial angle to help inspire Tiger. Probably preached to him at a young age that he had to show "Whitey" how good he was going to be at the game. But as I said...that is just pure speculation.

Rory and Jordan have no such basis for inspiration to be the very best.




and of course I won't be surprised if my "speculation" ruffles a few feathers on here.

Spieth can be counted on to win a few times a year and he can be counted on to be there in the majors.  Otherwise, he is sort of streaky.  And frankly, I think he plans it that way.  I think he tries to peak four times a year and everything else is sort of in preparation for that.  He isnít good enough to win with his C game most of the time but his A game is as good or better than anyoneís.

After he got through that initial period where he shocked the golfing world, Tigerís greatness was as a grinder.  He won so many tournaments by just keeping it together better than anyone else.

Agree and plus, Tiger is just a little smarter than the average guy on tour, IMO.  He wants and has to win while Rory and Jordan, hey they're enjoying being Rory and Jordan.

That's true.  No one of his era could grind out pars and occasional birdies on a tough course better than Tiger.  Plus, he has a high golf IQ and knows when and where to take his shots.  He almost never made the stupid play...like Phil, for instance.  This week he is playing a lot of "short" clubs off the tee, getting it in the fairway, making birdie putts when he puts it inside 15 feet, and scrambling when he misses greens.

Phil hit an absolutely stupid shot on 11 last week when he had the lead, going for the green out of the rough by trying to cut off the dogleg (that he had created by hitting it so far right) by trying to go over the trees.  The announcers and I were both saying it was a ridiculous play before he hit it.  The ball didn't clear the trees, bounced and rolled down the cart path into the bushes, and very nearly cost him the tournament.

I don't think Tiger...or Nicklaus...would have ever tried that idiotic shot unless he was behind on the last hole and needed to make birdie or eagle.

Just turned the Golf Channel on, Rory crushes a 300+ drive, sitting dead center of the fairway, 103 out, bogies the hole to go to +5.

I was the standard bearer for AC's pairing today.  It was a pleasure to walk with them.  He and his caddy seemed to really enjoy being out.  Lingmerth also made the cut.

Woods will probably luck out and win this weekend. I just don't see a relative unknown like Connor hanging on wire to wire for the win. In fact until this weekend I have never even heard of the guy. Has he even won a single tourney in his career yet? Of course Woods isn't the only lurker in the weeds. Snedeker is right there with him and could come out and fire off a 65 tomorrow to win it going away.

Being that he's a rookie, it's not unusual that he hasn't won a tournament.

A stat from today.

https://twitter.com/JustinRayGC/status/972590278233161729



Good find.  129+ mph swing speed blows my mind.   Had mine checked day before yesterday and it's a piddly 85. 

I'm with the others, if Tiger wins today it won't be luck.  I'd like to see Connors win it.  ;)

Tiger Wins today at -12 and our own Austin Cook roars from T32 to T9 by shooting 65 on a tough golf course.  That's my prediction.
