Woods' Ryder Cup record dropped to 13-20-3 and 9-16-1 in team matches.

Mickelson (another questionable captains pick) is now 18-21-7 lifetime and obviously completely out of form.

Furyk has done a poor job, just like he did missing 1 foot putts in the Ryder Cup as a player.


Tiger is actually now 9-19-1 in team matches in the Ryder Cup, from what I read, and 13-20-3 overall (4-1-2 in singles). He's fine on his own ball, not so good when he has a teammate. Although I will say that Reed was playing terrible in their 2 matches that I saw. I didn't see his afternoon match with DeChambeau, but I see that they got slaughtered.


Tiger loses his singles match to Jon Rahm also, goes scoreless in the Ryder Cup.

Per ESPN:

Phil Mickelson is in the World Golf Hall of Fame. Tiger Woods will join him there when eligible. And Dustin Johnson is the No. 1 ranked player in the world. The trio combined to go 1-9 in the Ryder Cup, with Mickelson and Tiger going 0-6.

It was almost fitting that Francesco Molinari clinched the victory in his singles match against Mickelson after tormenting Woods the first two days. Mickelson now has 22 Ryder Cup losses, followed by Woods with 21. U.S. captain Jim Furyk has 20.

Spectator struck at Ryder Cup by Brooks Koepka shot loses use of eye

Quote:
The woman spectator hit in the face by a Brooks Koepka shot Friday at the Ryder Cup says doctors told her she has lost use of her right eye.

"It happened so fast, I didn't feel any pain when I was hit," Corine Remande, 49, told AFP. "I didn't feel like the ball had struck my eye and then I felt the blood start to pour. The scan on Friday confirmed a fracture of the right eye socket and an explosion of the eyeball."


Quote:
Remande told AFP she is considering legal action.

Horrific. I mean, she has no case what so ever against Koepka or the course in my opinion but man how unfortunate.

Been hearing the rumors for. while. A golf buddy of mine does commercial real estate and there was talk of putting it in Inglewood near the new stadium. I like this plan better.

Can't wait!

They've been negotiating with El Segundo for years now and the tide didn't change until certain city council people were voted out this year. It took a lot of work because El Segundo is a special kind of backwater. I can tell you that from firsthand knowledge.

TopGolf was trying to find other locations but they really wanted El Segundo. I am guessing its proximity to LAX is especially appealing. You can get a ton of transient business while people wait for their flights...on top of the regular business the course pulls from the Westside and South Bay.

Yeah, It's a good location. Love playing The Lakes, so it will be cool to have Top Golf there as well (I hope).

Just curious as to what some of you guys think about the new rule allowing the pin to stay in.

I have played 3 times under the new rules and my buddies and I have been going back and forth on how whether we are going to use it. I am undecided on whether I like the idea or not. On one hand I made a 45ish foot downhill putt with it in and based on the ball speed, the stick was definitely was an aid in making it. On the other, I find it really weird looking at the cup with the flag in. I don't feel I really see cups orientation. I also kinda feel likes it is "cheating" in a sense. I know it's intended to speed up play, but unless everyone starts leaving it in, it may actually slow things down.

There's clearly an advantage even though some claim it's as likely to hurt as to help. I was watching the Farmers this weekend and they said in the discussion of the new rule that the one dedicated study to the issue demonstrated a 31% advantage to leaving it in. Interestingly enough, despite the advantage, the only guy who was leaving the pin in was Adam Scott.

I'm guessing that over time as it becomes more common, the pros will start utilizing the option because of the advantages it provides.

Any of you guys going to start leaving the pin in?

I'm for it if the player wants to do it.

I've never been a fan of standing on ceremony for no good reason. That's why baseball lost its place as the national pastime. Tradition is held in higher regard than progress.

That's another reason I like DeChambeau. He seems to have a unique approach to the game in the way he mixes science with feel.

It makes total sense to do so now that it is within the rules. There were some players leaving it in at Pebble Beach this past weekend, mostly the amateurs but a few pros.

Speaking of the PBPA, Tony Romo made a crazy shot after going WAYYYYY off the fairway:

Tony Romo's ridiculously amazing shot.

And now the tour heads here to LA for the Genesis Open at Riviera. Going to be there when the gates open for the third round. The atmosphere there if Tiger makes the cut is going to be nuts - not sure how I feel about that.

That, and I think the changes to what you are allowed to move or fix on the green and in the sand make much morse sense that the rigid but random old rules.

Phil has looked good so far this year. Hoping he can keep it up. Pebble Beach will be very different for the U.S. Open, but Phil should still feel pretty good when he steps foot on the course again later this year.

^^Phil had an amazing 3 bunker par on Thursday.

I'm not sure whats going to happen tomorrow. They are trying to claim the plan is to catch everybody up through 36 holes tomorrow but I just can't see it happening. Weather reports look like rain between 11-3 on Friday. Anybody seen updates or have opinions?

What are the usual options? Add an extra day monday is one. Do they ever make the opening round 18 holes instead of 36 and move to the weekend?
