Oli Fisher -10 after 12 holes. Flattering only to later deceive? Or genuine 59 watch??

Fisher now -11 after 16. Needs to finish birdie - par for a 59. And 17 is a par 5 and the easiest hole on the course.....

Eagle putt coming up on 17.... he's left it 4 feet short... knee trembler for birdie, he's taking an age to line it up.... holed it! Par on the last needed for 59

And he's done it! Nerveless par on the 18th, pounding it 329 yards up the middle of the fairway, key was his approach putt only left him 18 inches for the record. Tremendous achievement. clap clap clap

Strangely appropriate that the first ever 59 isn’t by a McIlroy or a Rahm, or even an Olesen or a Noren, but by the tour’s ultimate journeyman. Well done Ollie Fisher.

Got to feel for Matt Ford, shooting a 60 in the Challenge Tour event and being just a little overshadowed.

Is that win that kickstarts Tom Lewis’s career? Another fantastic amateur, who after a great start has really dropped off. Maybe seeing his contemporary Eddie Pepperell do so well has fired him up.

Plenty of 63's at TOC - Perhaps super is caddying, showing how easy the course is?
(Not a good start for Connor Syme though supes - he's getting out of position necessary to keep his card.)

He's struggling for sure, played 8 of the last 9 weeks I think. Was well on track earlier this season, now it looks like it's back to tour school.

He was at Kingsbarns today which on a day like today is such an easy course, so perhaps the tension is getting to him and he's taking on silly shots rather than staying in the present, triple bogey on 18, which isn't a difficult hole for a guy with his distance.

In other news, The Dunhill Links is having prizes for closest to the hole on the par 3's, a prize for the longest putt on #18 and a straightest drive on #1.

They are selling mulligans for $10 apiece.

You thought that was humorous? Ironic that GPB accuses me of telling terrible jokes and then he comes out with that as if it's side splitting. Perhaps, Jeremy Bear, you could just follow him on Twitter and see his rib tickling responses that will be just ignored by the European Tour.

It might have been mildly amusing had GPB not felt the need to repeat it and then repost it because he clearly thought it was hilarious.

I hadn't originally noticed that the Muppet poster and GPB were the same person.

The guy makes a joke, its a golf joke its not going to win the Perrier award. Goes right over realists head, who just wont admit to missing it first time round then doubles down on it like hes king of the one liner like tim vine or something.

Realist just admit you didn't read the tweet or reply and didn't pick up it was a joke.

Or tell us a joke so we can have a joke off.

I wonder if GPB has gone with the same patter each previous time the ET has gone with a shotgun start?

Coincidentally the Safeway event in Napa is likely to encounter similar conditions to those which the ET was trying to mitigate - except 30 degrees warmer and likely more shotguns on the premises.
Hopefully the inferno that engulfed some Silverado stands and properties just a few hours after last year's tournament conclusion will stay away today.

Sheeesh. I made the snark on two different forums

Did anyone think that the audience here and the audience on twitter might be a little different.

Actually I posted basically the same think on another forum.  

Notice what I did not do.  Take a potshot at any individual here.

Ok, I will admit it, I just threw some shade.

Somehow this forum is even more touchy than Twitter at times.  Even kwini just couldn't bear the minor jibe ("I wonder if GPB has gone with the same patter each previous time the ET has gone with a shotgun start?").  Come on Kwini your team won the cup, no need to protect the ET so eagerly.

To be fair, shotgun starts on final rounds are great idea. No dragging it out, all pretty standard holes played. Bring it on again.

Kwini, this post must be like fingernails on a chalk board!

Considering how much you have railed against "split - tee" starts on the PGATour.

Yup, Agreed ben. Dunno how the weather turned out at TOC, but seems a pretty sensible course of action if it was felt they wouldn't get the day's play in otherwise. Sorry you obviously don't think so, Mac.


GPB: Different circumstances entirely! And I'm assuming they're going with split tees at Silverado for basically the same reason (or at least to try to equalise the situation if wind gusts really do blow at 40 mph). My main complaint is that split tees are lousy for spectators who want to follow 36 holes. But when weather intervenes, as at these two events, fair enough.

I wouldn't worry too much about the 3 people that turn up to watch an ET event.  You probably get more spectators at a third tier scottish football match.

Erm, can't agree there. I played with a guy today that had iron covers on a new set of Callaway Apex MB blades, they were absolutely beautiful. The covers were protecting them form scratching etc in the bag. Didn't seem to slow him up either.

They were always going to get the day played on Sunday. The reason for the shotgun start, according to the commentators, was that the wind was due to pick up and scoring would become difficult. They wanted to equalise things for the whole field.

ray,
I also read that they reckoned the balls might starting moving on the greens if the winds got stronger. They got similar for the earliest starters in California yesterday, quite benign though when the leaders finished.

Worthy winners at both venues by the sounds of things so all's well etc.

Bjerregaard could be a good shout for Whistling Straits. Long and straight and usually keeps his head cool. Has been very close a few times this year.
