  • I don't think I play golf

    If what I witnessed on Sunday is called golf, then that's not the same game I play.
    360 yards drives ?
    Stiffing the approach from ankle deep rough?
    Shaping every shot according to the layout?
    Unbelievebale bunker shots?
    175 yard 8 irons?
    Incredible touch on the greens ?
    This is not a game I'm personally familiar with.
    These guys just get better every year.

      How about Phil and B Haas skanky shots out of bunkers and Hunters 5ft second shot on the first hole???

      Dalys 44 on the back nine along with Tigers 75 full of bad shots.

      Approaches shots in the water on 18.

        That's MY game except it's the rule rather than the exception.

          I agree Dave, when's the last time you, me or most anyone here, had someone pull the pin on a 72 yard approach shot, and almost make it!!! They are in another world!!!

            Then you play the same game as they do...

            It's easy to hit 360 when you have hard fairways.

                Wish they would use the actual distance of the hole. On one of the par 5's it said it was 610 or something, Someone hits a 350 yard drive and has only 187 left to the pin. How hard is it give the yardage the hole is playing. They always say the hole is up today or something but give the back yardage.

                  I agree 100%. 610 yards from the back tees but playing one up today with a front pin...so 550 it is. Same goes for the par 3s. 230 on the card but he's hitting 6 iron the hole is actually playing 200.

                      I guess the Pros have figured out the "new grooves", I think there needs to be "testing" of their clubs before they are declared the Winner, just like NASCAR!!

                        Comforting enough the guys in the booth,after watching these guys hit off the tee, didn't think they played golf either.

                          I likely wouldn't watch if these guys weren't doing amazing things day in a day out.

                          I suppose that is why they earn a lot of money doing what they do haha!
