    Should be an interesting day today. Hoping for an easier setup than yesterday. Would like to see some birdies.

    JT or Hideki for me. I like Kisner a lot, but he's not a major winner

    Punch it out and it's a 6 in the absolute worst case scenario. 9 times out of 10 it's a 5

    Agreed.  Yesterday I could have threaded it between two trees (but then again, it is me and I can't do that) so I punched out to the fairway.  Unfortunately, that does not mean my worst case scenario is a 6.  Ha.

    Grew up with a kid named Chris Stroud. Hope he's doing alright.

    Not a fan of this Chris Stroud in the least. Stupid pants, stupid putter and a suuuuuuper stupid pre shot routine.

    Good for him for getting here. Better not win.

    Yeah, Stroud looks ridiculous out there...the pants and shoes are awful.  Guy is in the final group in the 4th round of a major and he looks like a complete clown.

    Awful. And get the sunglasses of the back of his head. Either put them on your eyes or put them in the bag.

    Can't get luckier than Thomas did TWICE on that hole.

    Now get it done!

    Hideki vs JT

    Bring it on, Juggs

    If Patrick reed wins this and no one saw a shot, is he really a major champion?

    Thomas will hold on. The kids got serious game.

    It's amazing how bad CBS still is at covering golf.

    ^ Still much better than Fox. Hard to watch Fox (and Joe Buck) cover the US Open.

    First year was rough for Fox but thought they improved a lot this year.  All the technology they use with the ball tracker and that stuff is great.  CBS is finally catching up with that part of it.

    He's fucking awesome. I have been on the bandwagon for a while. I know everyone looks at this as the worst major but I would think this would be pretty cool for him given his dad and grandfather are/were PGA pros

    I am down with Fox too.

    CBS did well this week with pro tracer and graphics on the right.

    Amazing. His distance makes zero sense. Not like he has length either. He's 5' 10'' at most
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 614
    ^ Yep. 5'10" on tippy toes. 
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 614
    Rory is similar though. It's their insane flexibility.
