I like Jim Nantz, but some of his anecdotes are getting really tired....eg. DJ's grandfather was drafted by The Lakers, and then mentiioning that there were a bunch of NFL QB's at Riviera today, then tying that in to some sort of Tebow miracle...then onto a text that Brady supposedly sent Bradley, and now Brady is a member at Riviera!? Shut up Jim, my brain is gonna explode....I'd much rather hear Sir Nick talk about GOLF!!!


...after the playoff tees shots, did I just see a commercial for Cottonelle bathroom tissue, where they have a 'designer' tin that they are telling us we need for a "back up roll?" WTF is THAT!!!????

Good win for Haas!

I liked your rant. I couldn't agree more.

Nice to see an old classic course without 20yd fairways and 4" rough that still gives these guys all they can handle even if it has been stetched out over time.

...Yes, this is why I love this Tournament, and similarly the one at Hitlon Head where the greens are smaller!!

Hass drains a bomb that most never figured him to sink on the second playoff hole so I will say Hass won it.

all 3 had a good chance to win this tourney.

very exciting Sunday IMO

I think Haas could've played the last playoff hole better...after seeing Phil and Keegan mess up with no chance for eagle...I thought he should've taken an iron off the tee and get a birdie the traditional way...he made the hole a lot tougher with the driver...could've been stuck inside the trees

I think Phil blew it, he had the lead going into today.

And then on the last playoff hole made a bad decision off the tee....

If it was Tiger, he def would have been considered to 'blow it'

Phil did not back up, and outside Sergio's phenomenal round there were no great scores today , -2 was the best score in the top 12 finishers and only 2 golfers went that low so even par was not a bad score at all....both Keegan and Phil even as did DJ and a few others


The difference last week with Tiger when he started in 2nd or 3rd was that he went backwards on a course where the scoring was better

at the end of the day Phil might have hit some better shots today and won but after 72 holes he was tied for the lead.

World #1 shot a 78 today.

Not a very good season debut.

Would like TGC to do an indepth analysis...

Haas got really lucky, no other way to put it. I bet if he hit that putt 100 times he might sink it once not to mention that his drive could have been stuck behind a tree.

You need luck to win. Was Phil lucky when he sunk the putt on 18 to force the playoff?
For much of the final round it looked like no one could do anything. The greens must have been very tough, since there were so many missed short putts. The last few holes and the playoff were great.
I am starting to like Bill Haas, he is gaining experience and learning to win some big events.

Phil was -9 for the tourny after 6....then went bogey bogey. Isn't that backing up?

From my subjective view - he blew it.

You want to talk about who lost the tournament? Dustin Johnson's short approaches lost it for him. I get disappointed watching such a great long game get decimated by poor play (for a PGA pro) from 130 and in.

Gotta agree with this. DJ hit some horrendous shots today from inside 120y. Remove 2-3 of those horrendous shots and DJ wins the tournament. There's very few excuses for missing the green from 115 at that level.

I'm not a Haas fan (dude bores me to death and lacks personality) but he won the tournament outright. He made the putt when he needed to and that's really all that mattered.

DJ Lost the event? are we kidding, every golfer in the event can say if I hit a couple of shots differently - outcomes would be different.

But Phil had a 2 shot lead at his score was minus 9, the score to get into the playoff was -7. Phil lead all week, he blew it.
