He hit three bogeys in a row and fell below the cut line, probably triggered a mental health breakdown.

The part of the full swing documentary that stuck out to me was those guys talking about how lonely it is for the average pga tour player. Combine that with something like depression and it had to be a pretty tough road.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized how tough of a gig a tour player actually has it. You play 4 days a week (assuming you make the cut), get Monday off or to travel, and have practice rounds, pro-ams, etc on Tuesday and Wednesday. You live out of a hotel the whole time and you can’t really make plans because you don’t know what your tee times are on the weekends. It’s definitely a grind. Heck, caddies may even have a tougher gig.

I see on the LPGA Lexi Thompson announced she's retiring at the end of the season. She's only 29 but she has been playing full time on the Tour since she was 15.

Good for her! If you have plenty of money, and you're not enjoying it like you once did... then get out and enjoy your life!

Nelly carded a 10 on a par 3 today. 3 balls in the water. Doubt she'll be able to make the cut after that. She was +10 after her first nine holes, earning her dead last of the people on the course at the time.

Supposedly the average score on that par 3 today is >4 strokes. Yikes.

Anything short of the green is in the creek. Her bunker shot from behind the green just wouldn't stop and rolled off the green into the creek. Then she went tin cup and left two pitch shots short that rolled back into the creek. Wild stuff to see from the BY FAR best female golfer in the world.

It probably didn't help but reading between some lines I think it had been triggered already. As far as golf, he was having a decent year by a journeymans standards, which is what he was.

I felt pretty bad for the guy because he screwed up earlier on and he was a bit outspoken but then once it came out that he was dealing with some real struggles none of the golf media, who are usually pretty quick to jump on any sort of storyline that makes them look as though they are the greatest humanitarians, really showed him any grace and he continued to kind of be a black sheep. Then once he commits suicide you see a bunch of stuff painting the picture of a pretty decent dude behind the scenes.
