Figured this is a reasonable entry, as I'm sure many of you play/watch golf......

All things golf......PGA, LPGA, courses you've played, good stories, great rounds, lousy shots, gear, etc.....

Post it here.....

Golf really is my favorite sport

Ben with the garbage draw at the Phoenix Open.....

Seung-Yul Noh......yuck. That will be the least fun you could have at a ProAm

Arians got Bubba, Urban and Tebow reunited, Bettis with Billy Horschel.

I'm actually surprised given the SBs proximity there aren't more big name celebs in this thing

Tiger is one more swing change away from officially becoming a clown show.......

Austin on the front page of leaderboard in Ocala.....

Hopefully they have coverage of Allenby playing the 16th, I want to hear the fans reaction......

If Pac Man Jones goes to the Waste Management Open and makes it rain on the 16th as Allenby walks by while playing "Cherry Pie" on a boom box, that would be the greatest moment in the history of sports. In fact they need to make it happen so that the Super Bowl will be the second rated sports event on Sunday.

Alternatively, when they announce golfer bios on the first hole, add that Allenby is available for private dances at the 19th hole after the round...

Good thing it isn't Patrick Reed shooting an 82 or someone might die:

Looks like Tiger's swing coach and Patrick Reed's life coach may be the same guy.

The guy that won this is a fucking beast

I don't know if that was more impressive than the amateur who finished 5th

Love golf, my Bro and I (OrangeSteel) play a lot of rounds together.

Headed to Bandon Dunes for my 6th year in a row in March (PLEASE GIVE ME GOOD WEATHER).

I have a Masters Party every year with a Southern Menu, I will post that in a few weeks.

I really want Tiger to get his shit together, enjoy watching him contend, makes for a great tournament. He clearly has some green-side issues right now.

Hopefully this thread gets going especially in the off-season, (I call it golf-season) love to see pic's hear stories of great rounds and courses.

Keep'em coming!

Read that the other day, hell of an article.

He does not make it easy on himself, among others and while he is playing in a tournament.

I've not been but heard Bandon is unbelievable. That's awesome.

Reed is well known to be a complete asshole and a cheat. Interesting in a lot of ways and not really surprising given the nature of competitive boys junior golf. Definite advantage for him to have taken the route he has, even if he isn't liked by anyone. He's very comfortable taking it low with that Monday qualifier attitude

Koepka is a stud and is going to be the example of more common path taken to the PGA tour since they changed Q school. It's not worth going to Q school for exemption on the Web.com tour. The well known premier amateurs will turn pro and take a shot with a few sponsors exemptions to get at least provisional status for PGA tour. Most everyone else will head to play in Europe or Asia. Much better schedule there in terms of consistently getting into tournaments and potentially getting status on tour. Running around to Monday qualifiers here in the US and then scrambling to get in that weekend somewhere when you don't make it is just a shitty lifestyle. And any tour less than Web.com offers ZERO status opportunities and is a complete rip off for the players. Peter Uilhein is doing the same thing. Web.com is going to be more of a safety net for guys falling off tour than a stepping stone up to the tour, which will hurt it in the long run.

I'm a little nervous that fucking ESPN is expanding it's Master's coverage. They better not fuck up what is the greatest sporting event on TV. Such a great event. Masters draw in AM, then watch golf all day after playing.

If Tiger doesn't make the cut at Torrey Pines this weekend, he's pretty much done. That's about as close to playing on his home course as it gets.

I like Jim Furyk - and also a huge Steelers fan and season ticket holder. Crazy swing but effective.

Watching replay of today's round at Torrey.

Tiger is done. He is not even a tour player right now. I know he withdrew because of back issues, but that's a result of his swing. His head is moving in 3 different planes during his swing. That's unbelievable.

This Patrick Reed stuff keeps getting stranger:

Tour need a villain so it's not necessarily bad.

Hell of a tournament over the weekend, great field and what a finish!

Jason Day is a focused dude, feels he should win just about every tournament he plays in.

JB Holmes should have gone for it on 18 his first time around, very surprised he didn't.

Lucas Glover has some serious issues with his putting, he really needs to move to a claw - grip like Faldo was suggesting.

In the end, Jason Day's ball flight won him the tournament with that shot on 16 in the playoff. Hell of a shot, just landed so softly!

Hopefully Chris Berman is doing something else this weekend, I can't stand that they give that fat fuck airtime during the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

The suck has been officially recognized:

But this is the right thing for him to do....

I had the opportunity to attend the final round of The Masters last year. What a great experience. Anyway, I red an update that Allenby was proven to never have been to a strip club. Someone else was arrested for illegally using his credit cards.

Cant believe I missed this thread

Dan Smith - Jason Day has a giant set of stones. Great call.

I played in the 2006 Australian Amateur championship that Jason Day won ( strokeplay)

I watched Jason Day shoot 65 in the morning at Royal Hobart and I went out in the afternoon and played my butt off to manage a 74. Even at the age of 17 he had the looks of a world beater.

At last years Australian open I watched the pros practice on the putting green after their morning rounds. Jason Day spent over an hour working on a three foot left to right downhill putt. Using a putting guide he hit a couple of hundred putts, never missing one, but constantly asking his caddie to check his alignment. He was very focused and very particular. His focus to detail was greater than all.

Very humbling game when you see the worlds best destroy a golf course that makes you look silly. But so very enjoyable to watch

Major Kudos there Aussie.....

You may have felt like you were scraping it around but very few people can say they played a course of that caliber set up for a National Amateur event and kept it just north of level par. No shame in that 74 at all.....

That's awesome.....

Northern Trust this weekend.......leaders at -5 right now.

Who ya got?

I'm going with JB Holmes

Thanks SuperK ( wont tell you about the 2nd round 80 to miss the cut)

Lots of blasts from the past with good first rounds. Great to see Goosen back in some form ( great swing)

I am partial to Geoff Ogilvy on that list. He is an absolute golf history tragic and purist of the game.

Watney and Spaeth stand out for me.

Who you got?

Amazing finish to yesterday's Northern Trust, what difficult last couple of holes.

Dustin Johnson is kicking himself today on that approach shot on the Par 5 17th.

He CANNOT miss the green from the fairway there, if he makes a Par, there and on 18 he finishes at -7 and there is no playoff.

Impressed with Hahn, seems like he has figured out on to stay on Tour for the past few years, and yesterday, figured out how to win on tour.

One week closer to Bandon Dunes!

One week closer to The Masters!
