Feel bad for Overton if he doesn't though. A few years ago Snedeker shot a 63 to edge him out at the Wyndham Championship; be like deja vu.

Wow, Overton sure didn't handle himself well on national TV after having missed the putt on 17th green.

Overton has had a really good year so far but that is one ugly swing....kinda looks like a dry heave.

He had a lip out on the birdie putt at 17. He immediately stared over a spot just before the cup, probably cursing at it at the same time. If he made it, he would have been in a playoff.

Glad to see appleby win again. Makes you wonder if he would have retained his somewhat consistent performance had he not chased the $$$ by switching to callaway?

So he has been playing poor the past few years because of equipment:confused:

So he has been playing poor the past few years because of equipment:confused: I think that's a big part of it. He went from being ranked 38th in the world in 2008 to 105 in 2009 (switched over to Cally in Jan 2009) Before the win today he was ranked 159th playing his current gear. His OWGR slipped a bit when he was with Bridgestone, 21st in 2006 to 38th in 2008 but that's a much better spread than his past two years with the big C.

I was in training for two weeks in Pennsylvania last year. A week into it, a particular female in my class named Kate hears me and the boys talking about golf. She says "you guys like golf?" we say yeah- she goes on to say Stuart Appleby is her brother in law and she's been to the Masters the last 5 years.

I guess this is as good a time as any to bring the story up. Her name was Kate Massey, and she was fairly attractive for her age group.

Stuart WON that tournament, I wouldn't say Overton lost it like the golf channel analysts seemed to be convinced. 67 wasn't the worst golf for a final round in a PGA event.

That being said, Overton needs to learn how to handle himself, and then the wins will follow.

SO Glad to see the Bee win again. He was so good in his Div. 1 Pennant days with Allenby and Richard Green at Yarra Yarra GC in Melbourne. We used to say these guys are sure to win at least a major title each. Could be soon?

As for Dicky Green, great effort at the Irish this week as well. One of the most underated players in the world and a better lefty than Big Phil IMO.

This 59 is not as special considering its a par 70. ya sure its a 59, but its not like people are going crazy when someone shoots a 61 on a par 72. thats just my opinion. I dont want to take anything away from this round because it was truly spectacular, but it's not the same as a 59 on a par 72

putting is his weakness and he had several close misses. It could easily have been 57.
At least two of the five registered 59 were played under LCP, his wasn't.

I think that makes it even better. Because these Pro's feed on Par 5's. So those would be the gimmy holes to biridie if you are thinking of a 59. Birdie as many Par 4's there is no room for mistakes... You have to hit 2 great shots to the green.

On a Par 5 for these guys, even if they hit a bad drive or a bad second shot they are with in a 100 hundred yards max for their third.

so, there's been 2 "59's" this season, and a few "60's"...and that's with the "conforming grooves" :eek:

PGA Tour instructed each tour stop to go easy with course setup this year to ease the anxiety of the prima donna players in anticipation of lesser-spin grooves.
