    Very cool that you can compete at the highest level of a sport in your 50’s.   Give us amateurs hope that we can still have many years of fun golf ahead of us if we stay in shape.

    LOL.  I try to stay away from that cesspool over there!

    Still can't believe Phil held on.  Saw some debate on whether this was more impressive or Tiger winning the Masters in 2019.  Both are incredible but I'd give a slight edge to Tiger since he didn't know if he was ever going to be able to play again after that fusion surgery.  
    But this course... I give it to Phil.  He's older and pretty substantially.  Tiger owns Augusta, no one owns this course and it wasn't exactly set up for Phil's skills.  I'm sure Augusta is hard, but any misstep here was just death.  And Phil is known to go squirrely. 

    agree....but, then again, I can’t stand eldrick. :wink:

    I would say Tiger’s win was more impressive from where he came from.  

    Phil’s win is impressive, but with technology and fitness today’s 50 is probably probably like 42-45 would be back in the 90’s.  Phil wasn’t hurt, and has the game to get hot for one week.  Surprising, yes, but Tiger had to overcome a lot more to mount his comeback.   If anything Tiger has a 55 year old’s golf body even if five years younger than Phil.

    Haha.. anyone know why that is?  I saw Bryson walk by, but did something else happen?   

    I hope he feels the same about Patrick Reed.

    They've had a bit of mini-feud over the years on social media. Brooks called out Bryson's slow pace of play, then Bryson made fun of Brooks' appearance in the ESPN "body" issue, leading to Brooks rubbing it in that he had four majors and Bryson didn't have any (yet..at the time). So I think this video was a matter of some guy ya don't care for stomping by in his cleats during your interview.

    I think watched that video 20 times last night.  Absolutely hilarious!!  USGA has to pair these 2 up at the US Open.
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 32,427
    It is an amazing video. I am on probably 20 watches of it too.  According to the comments, which who knows, but it is the spikes.  Apparently Brooks is one of the only ones that wears metal and it annoys everyone...

    Plus, yeah, they hate each other

    Didn't even know that about Bryson but it makes sense for him.  The absolute worst.  I'm a huge Brooks guy so this just makes me like him even more.

    Bryson wears metal. My bad...typing too fast

    Also, maybe not the spikes...



    This is fun

    This is awesome and great for golf.  I can't wait for the day these two get paired up.  My money is on Brooks for the K.O. in round 1.

    Not the biggest Brooks fan but I definitely like him a little more after that. Fuck Bryson.

    I feel the same way. Brooks is also a bit too cocky for my liking, but he’s light years ahead of Bryson for me in terms of likability.

    Bryson and Brooks are getting after it on social media, at least someone in their camps are, and it's glorious
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 6,653
    They HAVE to get paired together sometime soon. Would be great entertainment

    It's quite entertaining to watch Bryson try to be funny.  He is such a dope.  And not funny.

    Help me understand all the 'Team Brooks' love on here.  Everything I see is that Brooksy is way too full of himself and has been for a while.  Great golfer, but way too serious.  I get some of the annoyance with Bryson, and believe me I get it, I'm a fast golfer and loathe slowness on the course, but Brooks just comes off as petulant to me.  Granted, I haven't paid too much attention to the whole saga other than the recent headlines and the Brady/Mickelson callouts via Twitter.  I think the whole thing is glorious either way, just wondering why the anti-Bryson/pro-Brooks.

    Took the words out of my mouth.  Both pricks.  One is less of a prick (slightly).

    Yeah I can see why people aren't fans of Brooks either.  His interviews with the regular golf media are pretty rough.  I've heard some interviews on podcasts with him where he lets his guard down and is actually himself and he seems like a pretty good dude.  And I can't help but love the hate he has for Bryson....it's like wobbie feels about Tiger!

    yeah, tiger is the biggest dochelord of them all! I’d say I don’t like his personality, but he doesn’t have one.

    I'm with you. I don't like Brooks. Seems every bit as douchy as Bryson. I agree Byrson's slow play would drive me nuts if I had to play with him or behind his group. But of the two, I actually like Bryson more because he's a douche that pisses people off, and Brooks is a douche that people think is cool.

    I am not a fan of either but at least Bryson brings something different to the table.  Brooks is as boring a player to watch as any out there.
