    Everybody should go to ****'s or Golf Galaxy to get a form for this promo before the tourney:

    https://www.golfgalaxy.com/s/rorywins

    If Rory wins (not likely, but who knows?) you can mail the form in to get a free TaylorMade driver. They'll also reimburse you if you have purchased one within the past couple months (only their newest model).

    I'm liking the new schedule a lot. The spacing between the majors seems just right so far.

    I think it's time for them to be done with the "featured pairings". It's a major and everyone needs a fair shake at this. As an example, I can't imagine Molinari is too excited about being grouped with Tiger for another two days after the Masters. (I might be wrong about his feelings on things, but it's just an example).

    The pairings make for good TV on Thursday and Friday, but as long as it isn't random, I can't help but feel there are some people getting screwed while others are getting a more comfortable draw. Save that stuff for the Waste Management Open.

    Bummer. I'm not his biggest fan, but there's no doubt he's an exciting player.

    Agree, also think they are smart now having all the Majors & Fed Ex Playoffs done before College & Pro Football kick-off.

    What? Molinari was playing with him anyway. That's been how the PGA pairs for as long as I can remember. Otherwise, these guys all know each other. Tiger is really the only guy who has an influence and if Brooks and Molinari can't handle it, that's on them.

    I wonder if this leads to a swing change for him. I've heard analysts talk about his swing not being able to hold up long term because of how hard he swings every shot and the stress it puts on his back. He really bends his back awkwardly. Maybe the wrist injury had something to do with the relative violent nature of his swing? That's the reason Tiger changed his swing after winning the Masters in '97. He said it was unsustainable because he basically had to swing as hard as he could every shot.

    His swing will be very hard to change. I doubt this is related to his mechanics.

    As a matter of fact, you don't..

    "To claim your free driver if you did not make a Qualifying Purchase, mail your completed original Refund Promotion form (name, address, phone number, email address (optional)), and whether you want an M5 or M6 driver in a hand-addressed, stamped envelope to retailcomm / Attn: Rory Wins Sweepstakes / 13810 Welch Road, Dallas, TX, 75244."


    But don't go get a free form before Thursday, I don't care.

    The winning score for the 2009 US Open, won by Lucas Glover, was -4. That was 2 shots better than PM, Ricky Barnes and David Duval(!!!!).

    The PGA is, relatively speaking, usually set up for better scoring than an Open.

    Reminds of that sign hanging on the clubhouse at Ponderosa back in the day that said “no beginners allowed”. Lol.

    People we're freaking out about this course one other time about how it's length and forced carries were going to get the pros.

    Tiger showed up and hit all irons.

    Was that a PGA?

    That was odd, wasn't it? It's not like that was an especially tough course.

    I have a feeling even par is going to be a pretty good score today.

    That and chances are you were teeing off after someone wearing boots, jorts and a wife beater. That course was a ******** with a crowd to match.
