    I took my dad to The Player's in 2016 for his 50th birthday. It was an amazing experience walking around all four days. I've always loved watching it on TV though. Really needs to be considered as a 5th major. 
    I’m definitely going to go to this someday. Obviously set up well for spectators

    I am in the running right now for a job in Jacksonville, FL. I have one more interview to get through and then hopefully an offer. I'll be going to The Player's every year if I end up moving down there. Feel free to come visit :grin:

    TOMMY LAD. What a shot

    Yep. Would be awesome but Rory has this unless he sprays his drive on 18. 
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 3,097
    Good for Rory to shake his weekend meltdowns and likely closing this one out. The kids playing great.

    Sarcasm. They have only said it on the broadcast 74928748 times today 

    Rory is good

    Nice win by Rory.  Should be a great confidence boost for the Masters.  He overcame slow starts on the weekend to win.  So a slow start on Sunday may not hurt him if in contention.

    If Spieth misses the Masters cut is he done as an elite player that should be talked about?
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 28,243
    That was an awesome tournament. Best players I can remember 
  • bootlegger10bootlegger10 Posts: 11,337
    I loved how Rory didn’t take a lot of time. His approach shot on 18 was struck  about 30 seconds or so after Day’s. J.B. Holmes would have taken 3 minutes.

    I'd have taken at least that much longer just to find my golf ball.

    Same here. But just analyzing where the ball crossed the hazard line.  
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 28,243
    I hope this guy plays a lot more golf over here

    PGA is doing a hell of a job on this 5th major nonsense. No thanks. Don’t dilute what we have 
    There was a time in the 90's when Golf Digest (my father was a subscriber) was pushing it as a half-major. They also considered the British and U.S. Amateur tournaments to be majors for some reason. I guess it had something to do with John Ball and Bobby Jones never turning pro or something.

    The US Am was a major back in the day.  I don't remember when it officially switched, but it definitely was.

    Nice ace from Kokrak, Snedeker nearly did the same thing but the ball bounced off the flag.

    This tourney is coming down to the wire just like The Player's. Love watching the guys have to grind it out on a tough setup.

    Yeah, tight fields are exciting to watch- when every single shot by several players have so much importance.

    Yeah I didn’t realize this course was that tough.

    Hot take...this is the most boring tournament of the year. And I like match play
