Another great weekend of golf, golf has never been better to watch. SY Kim's win is how you do it and she is a force to watch.

Martin Lairds win was "the meant to be" they say the breaks even out not here. Chipped in from a buried lie underneath a lip and an up and down from the ball washer?:eek:

Still have chills from Sergio's second shot on the 18th hole from last week. Best year ever to watch golf I can remember.;)

Dustin Johnson tests positive for COVID-19, withdraws from PGA event

The Tour said Johnson, 36, is experiencing symptoms...he notified Tour officials when he began feeling symptoms and was subsequently tested, which revealed the diagnosis that knocked him out of the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek...

Shadow Creek is the definition of an Oasis, but Las Vegas is looking for water from every state. Surrounding states are keeping the water from the Colorado river. IMO its a beautiful golf course but where is the common sense?

^^^ Interesting theory on why the rough wasn't so... rough... at Winged Foot. Still, these great old courses are being overpowered by guys like Beefcake. There's only so much room to move the tees back to keep the holes playing the way they were designed to, and a lot of these courses have run out of real estate. Something is going to have to be done if these courses are to remain relevant.

Poor Tiger didn't have the swingspeed for rough that was left. MC.

Can Tiger Woods find his missing game in time for the Masters?

Since winning his 15th major title, Woods has played 17 worldwide events, including the Presidents Cup, without a lot of success...there was the three-tournament run last fall in which he won the Zozo Championship for his 82nd PGA Tour victory, finished fourth at the Hero World Challenge, and then led the U.S. team to victory as captain at the Presidents Cup, where he went 3-0 at Royal Melbourne...outside of those tournaments, Woods had three missed cuts and a withdrawal, and his only two top-10s were ninth-place finishes at the 2019 Memorial and the 2020 Farmers Insurance Open...

No. He won't contend, not with his game where it's currently at. But I'd be willing to bet he makes the cut on sheer determination alone.

Bryson's latest numbers...



Some people aren't going to like the way he plays Augusta, but I'd rather watch Bryson on TV now than just about anyone else.

There's so many great players on tour. How many know about Tyrrell Hatton?

His game is one of the best in the world.

We all know Rahm Rory Dustin and many more but there's a ton of great golfers.

Beefcake's hang-time reminds me some of Ray Guy (5.6 secs).

Re Mr. Woods at ANGC. This venue with no rough is his only chance (however dim) at another major win.

"FORE!"
