First topic message reminder :

New Year, Time for a New Thread.

EuroTour makes it 2019 Debut this week with the Abu Dhabi HSBC Classic Presented by EGA.  Next week is Dubai and the following week is the New Saudi Event

Guessing that the EGA Presentation got Abu Dhabi a promotion to a Rolex Series event.


DJ and BK are playing in Abu Dhabi.  So is Fleetwood, Stenson, Oosthuizen, RCB, Barnrat, Poulter, and Oleson

Despite the the Hired Guns from USA and Rolex Promotion, Abu Dhabi will have its lowest OWGR rating in 10 yrs.  Pelley can't be happy about that.

 Well... Apparently you know better than Eddie Pepperell who actually played with him... So thanks for the clarification.... Whistle Erm

He's still slower than a snail on crutches, so if he is 'trying' he should forget the psuedo science and just get on with it.
How do you know that what Pepperell claimed wasn't just a platitude?
If you genuinely want to speed up, you drop nonsense like air density. Of course there is differences in air density from venue to venue and on different days, but for that flat capped half wit to believe that he can sense that air density, adjust his swing and allow for it is absolutely laughable, just as his contention that he knows the difference in his swing between 10 and half 10 does not strike me as someone who is trying to speed up.
Who knows though, maybe he's dropped his barometer, humidity, anemometer and dew point calculations from his in built ballistic computer. Rolling Eyes


Whatever the story is with DeChambeau, he'd better get his act together soon, he's plunging in the rankings compared to where he was, he's pretty much no-showed in the two Team events he's played in and, in his immediate future, he's playing with Fowler & Finau for two days in Phoenix; two relatively fast players, certainly ones who won't be wanting to get held up by Pythagorean theories.

Bryson is a different kind of dude and sure as heck isn't my cup of tea.  But I can't help but notice the list of guys with 5+ PGA tour wins in the last three seasons it's pretty short.  So while it seems to me the guys kind of a nutcase, seems to work for him.

I'll be happy to criticize him when he does something worthy of it.  But he's apparently making a serious effort to speed things up and with some success. I don't think Eddie would blow smoke up our a***s if that wasn't the case. So in that regard, I prefer to give him credit where credit is due.  

But as far as recent results. Yeah, not looking so good for the guy of late. But I'll wait a bit for him to "play into" that new body of his before I pass any judgments.  Could be the greatest thing ever, could be a major fail, jury's out.

PS EDIT: and Bryson is saying he got his slow play time for taking 86 seconds to make a putt when they were in position. Still no excuse. he might be getting better, but it appears he still needs to be getting better yet...

robo,
Don't disagree - but as for his wins, now he seems to be trying to fix something instead of going with wot got him there. Paved with good intentions no doubt.
Whatever you posted on my Farmers thread, I can't open it . . . . . . !

The Fat Accountant sharing the lead in the land of the stadium beheading. I wasn't sure he was still playing, let alone ranked as high as 104.
Just goes to show how far you go off the radar even if your ranking slides only a little bit. 104 is a highly respectable ranking but it might as well be 1004

Is the Saudi tournament a place where you want to make the cut?

Well done from the Fat Accountant. Maybe he was motivated by the outlook of an easy tax return?

Well done from McDool, up into the Top 50 and gets to go over the wall to Mexico in a few weeks - so long as he doesn't go to a Saudi Consulate to get his visa sorted.

Regarding super's observation about "the land of the stadium beheading", I went to an exhibit of Rembrandt etchings (I know . . . . . . ) once and was surprised to find one of a circumcision, which apparently was a spectator sport back in 17th century Holland.
