Buffalo Bills DT Kyle Williams is a scratch golfer who loves the game. When asked if he would email in a rule violation that he saw on tv, he replied "No, because I'm not a loser that lives in my mom'

This is a 6?!?

Sneds 59. 

What a round. Making me want to go out and throw some darts.

With a bogey to start the round.  Misses a 6-footer on his 17th hole and then drains a 20 footer on his 18th to break 60. Crazy.

He was only 3 under after 9.  Went 8 under on his last 9 ... 6 birdies and an eagle.

So the Captain’s picks for Furyk should be interesting but I consider Tiger and Phil to be locks so really only leaves Jim with two choices. Tiger has been openly lobbying for DeChambeau and he finished 9th in the standings so I would think he is one of the favorites for the last two picks. The one guy I don’t really hear anyone talking about is Kevin Kisner. I think he could be a smart choice giving that he is an elite putter which would add a lot of value over the first two days. If I had to guess I would say Furyk goes Kuchar but I suppose he waits to see if someone gets real hot over the next couple of weeks.

Kuchar has been less than average if not terrible this year, he should get left off

I had a persimmon driver and 3 wood growing up.  Wish we kept them around - they were great

Yep, same. Really wish I'd have kept my Dad's old clubs especially.

And it must have taken everything in his being to resist mentioning the ball when talking about DJ's distances.

Anyone seen the new “playoff” structure announced by PGA?  Upon initial review, it sounds absolutely horrendous and unappealing.  Spotting players strokes, essentially giving pros a handicap based on points?  Gross

 

https://www.golfchannel.com/article/golf-central-blog/fedexcup-gets-massive-overhaul-next-season/

The overall FedEx Cup title kind of works this way anyhow - Patton Kizzire (#30) would have to be DeChambeau (#1) by several strokes this week to overtake him for the Cup, so DeChambeau is effectively getting some # of strokes vs the field in terms of the year-long title.  He can win the Cup without winning the tournament, as long as the actual winner isn't one of the top few behind him (happened last year, as the article says).

So I get the concept - wanting the guy who wins the Tour Championship tournament to win the FedEx Cup - but agree this feels like a clunky way to do it.  But I don't know of a better way to do it while still treating it as a year-long "super event". The guy who was the best all year up to this point should have some advantage.

Sets up a situation where the winner of the tournament finishes at 2pm or something.

So spieth didn't play in enough events or events new to him and they suspended him from the tour championship?

What kind of ####ed up rule is that?

No. He wasn't in the top 30 and as a result of missing out on the tour championship, he didn't play in enough tournaments.

Oh.   I'm trying to decipher this bit about not playing in events he skipped last 4 years and just gave up. Never picked up on fact he didnt qualify. :bag:

Yeah.  That's why he was in violation.  He was going to be in 25 events as he planned on the Tour Championship as one of those 25, but since he didn't qualify and there aren't any other tour events left, he is in violation.  

He also could've avoided this by playing in a different tourney that he didn't play the year before.

So I'm late to this news but I see that Dechambeau plans to leave the pins in when putting this year, if the pin is fiberglass and not metal.

Another reason to hate this guy.  I'm sure he thinks he's outsmarted the tour,. Hoping it backfires literally.

In the event that he is right and this is a great strategy, I don't know why he gave out the fiberglass info so early, unless he is just trying to brag, which I think he is.

Don’t understand the hate. At all. Players have the option to leave the pin in or not. He’s analytical and actually put some thought into it with applied science. I find what he does fascinating including the same-length golf clubs.

Im a golf nut, but the golf community is insane re:pretentious with rules/etiquette.

Golf fans ought to be able to make all the noise they want at any time. Like any other sport. As long as we’re changing stuff about golf this year...

Obviously, you're not a golfer.

It's less about the overall noise and more about the shrieks and "gotcha's" in the backswing.  Professional tennis controls crowd noise during serves ...same thing.
