Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

Holy Chit, Tiger just hit a 3 wood 270 in the air, about 290 total to reach the par 5 9th in two.

That shot was freaking ridiculous. Eagle is possible, but birdie to tie the lead seems likely.:-)

I don't get it. They show the Open on both ESPN and NBC yesterday for about 10 hours. No coverage until 3:00 today? Am I missing something?

Tiger's second 9 yesterday was the most fun round I've ever watched. He shot a 30 at the US Open, unbelievable.

No doubt. When he had that run of 3's I thought breaking 30 was possible.

Tiger back to even now.
If it was anyone other than Phil, I'd think they were nuts.

But if you saw the shots he made yesterday to save par/bogey in several instances, you'd understand. Dude has the best short game in golf, might as well take advantage.

If the guy would hit the fairway with that 11* 3-wood, it wouldn't be an issue. Finesse around the greens is more important than distance off the tee in a US Open, IMO.

Hitting fairways is Phil's problem.

A similar hole at the course I play at. I usually drive to about 30 yards, and the chip shot is about 20 feet up hill. I've had two come back to my feet, but never 4 come back.

Phil took a NINE there, and IIRC, Rich Beem took an ELEVEN at #8.

Wow.

I have never seen a top Pro repeat the same mistake (on a not so difficult in the fairway shot) over and over like that. It was like he was Tin Cup and determined to make that exact shot work.:-)

Especially that mistake by someone who is as skilled with a wedge as Phil.
