I am disappointed in the 141th Open Championship. This major is playing easy and just like Rory's win @ Congressional last year, it's because once again the weather ran away & hid. If the heat & humidity had surfaced last year @ Congressional and the wind & rain appeared this year @ Royal Lytham, no way Adam would be going into the final round with a score of -11 or Rory would have won his major with a score of -16. But, I am glad Adam will be playing with Graeme because McDowell will play like a determined bulldog and keep the pressure on Adam from their very first shots.
What rule(s) of golf covers the type of golf clubs acceptable for play on the PGA Tour, @ the Masters and on other golf tours worldwide?
Before Adam Scott switched to a broomstick (per Curtis Strange) putter, was Scott required to get approval from the USGA, PGA or R&A etc?
Do you think any golfer would bring a lawsuit against the USGA, R&A etc. if in 2016 they ban the belly or broomstick etc. putters?
It is all weather dependent. If the weather stays the same I think the winner will be at -14 so that means Tiger needs to shoot a 62 to have a chance. That's just my take on it. If the wind picks up I think the winner will be at -9 or -10 so Tiger would only need a 66 to be in the thick of things IMHO.
GO TIGER! BEAT 18!!!!!!!!!
You are right VG. Tiger knows best. You and I certainly know how a golf game can go south in a hurry. One minute you are thinking "by george, I have this figured out" and the next minute you are scratching your head in bewilderment. What a great game!!!!!
GO TIGER! BEAT 18!!!!!!!
P.S. Glad you agree with me regarding the long putters.
I actually read his comment on the PGA website this morning but now it isn't there anymore. However, I did copy this quote from the Open Championship website so you are probably correct. He was kidding around. I wish when they put a quote like that on a website that they would tell you that. Otherwise it makes the person who made the quote look really bad because you can't see them or hear them to know they are joking.
Anyway, here is the quote that was on the Open Championship website:
Bubba Watson, tied for 10th after shooting two underAsked if he enjoys seeing a leaderboard full of Americans: “Well, obviously, no. I’d rather it be me on the leaderboard. Who cares about the other people?”
I am pretty sure that was said as a joke.
