That's OK if it gets these guys round more quickly.
Didn't watch it, but did they play more quickly?
If so, job done. Or at least point made. For now.

Did you guys see that "Mary"'s son Steve Surry is playing this week in Austria - second round of 65 today. She must be a proud Mum.

She posted her pride on Facebook! she is, indeed, very proud of him and after a round like that, so would I be!

Anyone else feel that this "shot clock" has rather shot itself in the foot? It was supposed to speed up play and make it more exciting but with the clock apparently not starting until the players are ready to play their shot, I don't see the point! And if they are disturbed by someone, for example, on an adjacent tee or green, then the clock is stopped! I have found this week's comp a bit of a bore-fest and quite honestly have been happy to have recorded it so I can fast-forward a lot of it. I thought last week's Italian Open, without the gimmick, was far more enjoyable and exciting (and the course was much better on the eye, too).

I think you're probably right LP.
Would be better if the clock starts when they get to their ball. So they've got 40 seconds to figure out the yardage, get the club out, pick out the target and play the shot.

It’s still cut out a lot of the unnecessary stuff though hasn’t it. The likes of Cantlay and Bradley who stand over their ball for 90 seconds “composing themselves” for a swing would be in a world of trouble. If it’s been less exciting than last week that’s probably because Korhonen is running away with the thing.

I don't understand why they didn't play two-somes today.

Final three some played in 4 hr 20 minutes.

Appleby & Holmes paired together in Memphis's Round 3 - in their respective days, they've been about as slow as it ever gets. Hope FedEx gets the shot clock from Vienna to Memphis in time for them.

All I can think of re threesomes/twosomes is they had a limited number of working stopwatches left. A few more must have broken today as they’re having a Saturday cut too.

Saw Steve Webster on the Golf Debate saying he couldn't wait for this weeks event as he was a quick player. Third place for him, bet he wishes they had a clock every week.

2nd place for my coaches son Connor. Exactly what he needed in his first season on Tour.
Halfway to retaining his card.

Does your coach let you have a look at Connor's data to see where you differ from a pro?

Hard to tell if you're being serious or not Mac, but I'll indulge.
It's not really discussed as much because club golfers shouldn't be trying to compare themselves to tour pro's, however certain stats come up in conversation such as "Don't worry about "X", because tour pro's only manage "Y". That sort of thing, so I realise how far behind a tour pro my swing speed is for example, or where my carry differs from a tour pro, or how many greens I might be making, or how often I'm getting up and down.

Connor's data though is never discussed specifically, it's probably available on European Tour stats, but there's little point in trying to compare myself to a young tour pro who's 20 years younger and 10x the player I'll ever be. He basically plays a different game.

I'll substitute the word "coach" though for "the golf pro I get lessons off". Not like I'm seeing him enough, (every 4-5 weeks) to consider him a proper full on coach I suppose.

Mac,
Is that your parenting advice based upon experience, or from a manual?
Can't imagine anything much better than having my lad caddieing for me; tho' more aptly it would be me caddieing for him.
Father/son on the golf course: Can't beat it.

What if he's a thicko? He's better served going out to work and actually learn something useful instead of going to Uni to do some silly non-course.

Good to see you've read the article Mac. It says that his son has JUST LEFT SCHOOL.

Don't you remember when you left school? You'd have finished your last exam and you'd be finished too.

Well that didn't take long.

Just started to watch the BMW Int'l, and within the first minute, I saw an example of backstopping.

Sebastien Gros was playing a green-side bunker shot on the 13th hole, and his playing competitor left his ball unmarked about 3 ft from the hole.
