Bethpage Black a monstrous golf course. Spieth going for the career grand slam but, like Mickelson, I doubt he can drive it straight enough to win round this course. Guess Koepka is the favourite going in. The Nike cap he's wearing right now is so ugly tho.

Brooks playing with Tiger and Molinari first two rounds. Tiger doubled the first . Conditions look perfect but this course is just brutal and that's with an easier PGA set up compared to how they set it up for the US Open

oscar bravo, Thursday, 16 May 2019 12:54 (five months ago) link

Had no idea Spieth is now #39 in world rankings!!

oscar bravo, Thursday, 16 May 2019 13:08 (five months ago) link

brooks strolls round in 63 like it ain't no big deal. frightening.
tiger 2 over.
nice to see tommy fleetwood at -3.
conditions look perfect.

oscar bravo, Thursday, 16 May 2019 17:36 (five months ago) link

holy cow @ Brooks, that is an insane round on this course

kinda sucks that all eyes will be on Tiger

jeez brooks. just tuning in.

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Thursday, 16 May 2019 17:47 (five months ago) link

Hugely impressive front nine from Jordan. Think he hit every green. Didn't think he had it in him.

oscar bravo, Thursday, 16 May 2019 20:04 (five months ago) link

I must have ducked out somewhere--I thought the PGA was always the last major on the calendar.

i'm predicting Kevin Nealon takes over the Dorf on Golf franchise

XP
They've rejigged the schedule so that the US tour ending FedEx playoffs finish in August before the start of the NFL season and so that the PGA doesn't clash with Olympic golf every four years so from now on it's
April - masters
May - PGA
June - US Open
July - Open

Lol Rory starts his day double, bogey, double, birdie, par, bogey +5 for the day thru six holes and +7 for the tourney.

DJ 4 birdies in 6 holes , -4 in second place behind Brooks who plays in the afternoon wave.
Danny Lee was in second but has dropped five shots thru 11 holes.

oscar bravo, Friday, 17 May 2019 13:57 (five months ago) link

I really want to like Patrick Cantlay cos his back story is so compelling but man is he irritating to watch, so slow.

oscar bravo, Friday, 17 May 2019 13:59 (five months ago) link

Another birdie for DJ. Brooks and DJ duel would be fun, the loser being the one who makes an expression first.

oscar bravo, Friday, 17 May 2019 14:03 (five months ago) link

Lol no majors between August and March is fucked up man

xyzzzz__, Friday, 17 May 2019 14:16 (five months ago) link

Beemer! birdies 5 of the last 6 to probably make the cut. amazing around that course.

another good round from spieth. maybe he's back?

oscar bravo, Friday, 17 May 2019 17:16 (five months ago) link

he was never gone!

imago, Friday, 17 May 2019 17:20 (five months ago) link

maybe a little gone

imago, Friday, 17 May 2019 17:20 (five months ago) link

DJ is my big irrational dislike so it has distressed me to learn he's doing well

imago, Friday, 17 May 2019 17:21 (five months ago) link

DJ played in the saudi event this year so that's a reason.

brooks starts birdie, birdie and strolls about with the air of a man who is bulletproof.

oscar bravo, Friday, 17 May 2019 18:38 (five months ago) link

kinda glad tiger isnt going to make the cut so we wont have to watch him play mid golf all weekend whilst the actual contenders get no camera time

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Friday, 17 May 2019 21:25 (five months ago) link

damn fleetwood 3 boges on the back 9 i was pulling for him to put heat on brooks

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Friday, 17 May 2019 21:26 (five months ago) link

this is domination

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Friday, 17 May 2019 22:03 (five months ago) link

lowest 36 hole score in majors history

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Friday, 17 May 2019 22:30 (five months ago) link

maybe i started that 'how many majors will spieth win' thread for....the wrong person

mind u, spieth is *second* in this. but also nowhere

imago, Friday, 17 May 2019 22:54 (five months ago) link

he went deep into the funk and never really recovered

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Friday, 17 May 2019 22:55 (five months ago) link

he's tied second in this tournament!!

imago, Friday, 17 May 2019 23:00 (five months ago) link

i just mean generally. he's looking pretty good this weekend for sure! he just seemed so primed to make a run at quite a few majors a few years back. hard to sustain dominance

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Friday, 17 May 2019 23:03 (five months ago) link

Yeah Spieth better watch it or he'll end up like Rory.

xyzzzz__, Saturday, 18 May 2019 07:29 (five months ago) link

i always forget how irritating i find DJ's beard

dynamicinterface, Saturday, 18 May 2019 22:19 (five months ago) link

Koepka choking!!??

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Sunday, 19 May 2019 21:48 (five months ago) link

4 bogeys on a row!

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Sunday, 19 May 2019 21:53 (five months ago) link

Lol, still leading by two with not many holes left

xyzzzz__, Sunday, 19 May 2019 22:05 (five months ago) link

DJ screwed the pooch

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Sunday, 19 May 2019 22:07 (five months ago) link

DJ coulda won this if he just parted out 16-18.

Even as it stands with Brooks errant drive a double bogey is in play for the tie

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Sunday, 19 May 2019 22:35 (five months ago) link

Parred*

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Sunday, 19 May 2019 22:35 (five months ago) link

Really limped into this win

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Sunday, 19 May 2019 22:40 (five months ago) link

Catching up with the first round of the US Women's Open. Course seems p quirky especially the Greens, some ridiculously severe false fronts.

Also completely mind blown by the fact that the player in 2nd place after round one Esther Henseleit last official handicap before she turned pro was +7.1 !!!!! Imagine having to add 7 shots to your score after every round as an amateur!

oscar bravo, Friday, 31 May 2019 08:36 (five months ago) link

Also lol at the rumoured USGAing of pebble Beach for the upcoming mens US Open. Apparently they have narrowed the fairways so much that on one of the holes a fairway bunker is now located 35 yards into the rough!

oscar bravo, Friday, 31 May 2019 08:46 (five months ago) link

US Open at Pebble Beach is underway. Should be some good scoring in this one.

big city slam (Spottie), Thursday, 13 June 2019 16:38 (four months ago) link

course is playing p soft today, greens holding, think it'll dry out by the weekend and be really tough.
mcginley with the great stat that rory has never won a tournament with a winning score of worse than -12. which suggests he can't win on really tough tracks. rahm and rickie going well greens look v smooth for pebble

oscar bravo, Thursday, 13 June 2019 17:13 (four months ago) link

Rickie leading. I wouldn't begrudge either he or tangent if he got a major but his hair really bothers me. I know it some charity mullet thing to do with his foundation but yeesh.

oscar bravo, Thursday, 13 June 2019 20:29 (four months ago) link

tiger straight up snap hooked that 8 iron. hit a cart path and ended up w double bogey.

big city slam (Spottie), Thursday, 13 June 2019 22:27 (four months ago) link

This could get spicy

big city slam (Spottie), Monday, 17 June 2019 00:03 (four months ago) link

Woodland creature in the rough

brownie, Monday, 17 June 2019 00:08 (four months ago) link

The woodland choke may be on

big city slam (Spottie), Monday, 17 June 2019 00:08 (four months ago) link

Nice shot from the rough. Koepka slippin too

big city slam (Spottie), Monday, 17 June 2019 00:14 (four months ago) link

can't believe Rose is still in the mix

brownie, Monday, 17 June 2019 00:18 (four months ago) link

Weird week for rose but all he has to do is string together a couple holes and he could take this

big city slam (Spottie), Monday, 17 June 2019 00:19 (four months ago) link

Or not

big city slam (Spottie), Monday, 17 June 2019 00:36 (four months ago) link

one month passes...

Lol Rory. Iron off the opening tee out of bounds. 3 off the tee into the left rough, 4th shot pulled into into left rough, unplayable penalty drop. Now playing his sixth shot.
