First topic message reminder :

I thought with no place to discuss European Tour events, and with important upcoming event. I felt it would be a good idea to set up a thread to I am going to try and keep this updated every week with selected tee times.

That's not the colour scheme that Sky Sports uses. Must be something specially concocted by the Golf Channel.

No need to stop working when there's an intersting job opening as "fat c***" for Robert Allenby.

What do you reckon Allenby's caddies earn? $1000 per week plus 5-10% of winnings? He's banked $265k so far this season so not that great for the caddy, but I suppose he can double that with one good week.

Is that enough money to walk around a field all day being insulted?

ray,
The other side of that coin is that it's not bad for walking around a field; let's face it, if he was a top caddie he'd've been picked up by someone else ages ago.

Haven't taken to Tyrrell Hatton yet, reminds me of the somewhat entitled early images of Justin Rose. Which probably means Hatton will win the MatchPlay - regardless, he's certainly scored a ticket to the PGA in a fortnight's time.

It looks as if the 3rd round wins for Hatton and Howell will be enough to squeak them into the owgr Top 100, probably good enough for an Invitation to the PGA Championship.
And Marc Warren's win places him right on the precipice of entry to the Top 50 and exemption to the WGC-Bridgestone. A quarter final win would assure it.
Am enjoying this tournament! Well done Paul Lawrie.

Two former boy wonders go off as the final pair, Ryo and Rickie.
I badly need Rickie Fowler to bail out my fanto team; going thru a very bad run!

After yesterday's dismal finishes from Laird and Sullivan, not much for GB&I to get excited about unless Brian Davis can shoot in the 50's or Knox and Owen can continue to play well. Big week for Gonzo though - he followed up his Round 1 66 with a 71, effectively treading water. Now he needs two more 66's to get a meaningful result.

Is anyone else surprised at the amount of fairways missed? I know the course is it a bit shorter than usual and some players maybe bombing them down there to have a chip on, but even when they take irons they are missing. Can't all be down to the wind.

So...what was the general consensus on this debut Tournament? I liked it and thought it deserved more higher profile players. It'll be interesting to see what happens next year if there's a clutch of players in the mix for a wildcard RC selection. Speaking of which I know the have their world list and European list and points are points. In terms of RC selection though is their any merit in weighting match play points heavier tha stroke play, not for RTD just for RC selection?

Agreed JAS. I liked the course as well, because there was a lot of risk and reward.

I liked the concept; it seemed a good course for MatchPlay and hope it can continue.
As for deserving "more high profile players", I'm not sure exactly how you do that, even with double the purse.
As far as I can see, the guys who lost in Round 1 received no official prizemoney anyway.

The date seems to have been selected in the knowledge that the only guys who play a WGC-level schedule who would compete would be those who need points to play the Bridgestone. Warren showed, Fleetwood and Sullivan didn't, perhaps partly because of their management company.

What would you do to strengthen the field, JAS? Hopefully Howler has a few ideas, but I thought the field was about as good as it reasonably could be.

Course: Really liked it - good to see a proper links being played in matchplay where the risk and reward is so much more immediate.

Format: Fine by me but I can see the issue with committing to something that might only last a day for no pay.

Crowds: They looked disappointingly sparse which made the atmosphere on TV come across a bit downbeat

Field: I was ok with the field - matchplay is a good format for what might be considered the 2rd tier because it's man against man, not man against the course.

The course was quite a bit shorter than what we are used to seeing. Was anything done to compensate this, i.e. growing the rough up / narrowing the fairways? Or did we see the course playing as it would for the monthly medal?

When I've played tournament courses, you can usually see the pro tees way back in the distance compared to the medal tees. I like the idea of taking the Tour to a "normal" course, or playing "normal" yardages once a year, just for fun, especially as its matchplay.

In his interview Fattybarnrat said that he felt tired in the last few holes and that's why he lost his way. He is not used to playing 36 holes a day, two days running. I couldn't help thinking that the interviewer should have said "Then why don't you lose about 20kg and get into shape then you won't feel so fatigued."

Lorus, for your information, Aphibarnrat has a medical condition (thyroid, I think) which is the reason for his size - nothing to do with what he eats or how much. I am sure he would lose weight if he could. Comments such as this can be very hurtful.

No matter how fit you are, 36 holes 2 days running is still a big ask, mentally as well as physically, so fair play to him. Not who I'd have expected to prevail on Sunday morning.

Speaking of 36 holers I took a pummelling at Saunton yesterday, certainly wouldn't have fancied another 36 today

Ray - if you are going to make comments like that, please add them as your own and don't amend my quote to make it look as though I am saying it. I too have a thyroid condition which has given me a similar problem all my life - although not as bad - and your uninformed, and hurtful, comments do you no justice.

Yes it is true that people suffering from thyroid problems gain weight, it can be treated and while it is more difficult for sufferers to lose weight, with the proper diet and exercise it can be done. One would think a professional sportsperson would go out of his way to get into the best possible shape regardless.
As for the comment "I am sure he would lose weight if he could", I live in Thailand and golf is only really available to the more affluent in society. Thailand has its own professional tour and I have seen quite a lot of it shown on TV here. I would say around 50% of the golfers are overweight. This is a cultural thing. If young kids are overweight, it is seen as proof that their parents can afford to nourish them sufficiently. They even refer to the fat kids as being cute.

Plenty of experienced European Tour pros lining up to play the Challenge Tour event in Ulster, led by Michael Hoey. Other names include McGrane, Peter Lawrie, Price, Dougherty, McGowan, Lara, Elvira, Goya, Rhys Davies, etc, etc.
Kinda surprising that everyone's favourite 1000/1 shot, Gary Boyd, can't get into the field.

Probably well worth a visit.

From the NHS website

"Treatment for an underactive thyroid involves taking daily hormone replacement tablets, called levothyroxine, to raise your thyroxine levels. You'll usually need treatment for the rest of your life. However, with proper treatment, you should be able to lead a normal, healthy life"

Even if he does have hypothyroidism he should really be seeking out the medication available and be leading a normal healthy life. As always with fat people claiming their weight is due to a medical condition the fact they drink 5 cokes a day is totally ignored.

I take Levothyroxine and, like many other sufferers, find that it actually puts on weight rather than helps lose it which makes things doubly hard. I read recently that Kiradech spent some time not long ago as a monk living a very frugal lifestyle (as most young Thais apparently do) and even that didn't make any difference. Please don't judge people's appearance too harshly when you don't know all the facts.

Next week's KLM Open has a decent field with Donaldson and Kaymer signed up.
Plus about a dozen more Top 100 players.
Shame Casey doesn't come over and defend his title.

Yup, Love the course too, some lovely courses on the Dutch & Belgian coasts that we hardly ever hear about. Luiten's going through a terrible run of form, time to turn that around.

Potentially an even better field for Milan the following week - Kaymer again, Franny of course, plus about 15 other Top 100 players. And Padraig Harrington too.

Believe we'll get some McDowell sightings for a few weeks after that - Ryder Cup qualification underway!

I guess casey is prioritizing the fedex play offs given that he doesn't seem to be renewing his European tour card for next season. On current form he would probably get onto the ryder cup team.

I understand the conflict, Mac. Still a shame he won't be there. Sure he'll be vocal if he rejoins the E.T. but doesn't make the RC Team, and is ignored as a DC pick.

Hadn't heard that regarding Casey's plans for next year although I know that was his position for 2015.
Never quite sure what to make of him, not sure what he expects out of his career except a lavish lifestyle.
And nothing wrong with that.

Why is Dyson not playing the KLM- he's a bit of a specialist at the course (2 time winner and runner up last year)? It's probably public knowledge and I've missed it.

Bob, According to the E.T. website Dyson hasn't played since May - no explanation as to why.

Most odd. I know he has a bit of a cloud in has background re Spikemarkgate, but I enjoy watching him and his self-commentary. He and Danny Willet would be a heck of a pairing.

How transparent is the European tour disciplinary process?

Not being able to repair spike marks is an absurdly stupid rule.

Agreed.. mostly.  I guess the fear is two fold - people would spend an age doing it, or they would pummel down a groove towards the hole.

Good grief, S-R - I'm agreeing with you again! What's going on?

I never have been able to understand why you can't repair a spike mark that's been made by someone else when you can repair a pitch mark that's been made by you or someone else! Crazy!!

I just repair them under the guise of it being a pitchmark.
