No, his year has been quite bad, failed to contend in any of the Majors. For him that is actually quite disastrous.  If all he wanted was to be a precocious talent, feature in a Tiger Woods golf game as youth, win every now and again on tour and never really feature in the majors he may as well be CH3.

I would guess he could have had his pick of caddie when he split with JP. We have no idea whether anyone else would have been better or worse. I guess it's about what makes him comfortable on the course.

Don't want to sound like a douche, but having seen Rory's caddy work up close I can tell you it wouldn't be difficult for someone to do better.  Even a bag carrier type caddy should know the course, get the actual and plays like yardages correct, get the wind correct, offer a club with the correct yardage and know the greens.  The dip sht on Rory's bag doesn't seem to get any of those things correct.

Haven't seen Rory with HD but he and JP were not engaged at all in the weeks before they split.
Also, most of the pros do their own work on the course as well as their caddy's; I hope Rory has good judgement in that regard, because the ultimate responsibility is his.
Hope he shoots 59 today.


Golf Channel speculation that the dates of this WGC and Minneapolis's 3M event will be switched next year, but can't see that making any difference to the pro turn-out. And it will pit the WGC up against (most likely) the Irish Open.

Rex Hoggard reckoned pros were suffering from jet lag following a late night charter from Northern Ireland which landed in Memphis at 2.00 a.m.
Good lord, why didn't they have a normal evening in Portrush/Belfast and fly in the morning; they wouldn't have suffered any jet-lag at all? Rookies!!

Tuesday and Wednesday nights I was in the two biggest casinos in the Memphis area. I was kind of looking for a golf pro (hoping they might have extra tickets to St Jude) but I didn't see any playing any table games.

Can't you afford a ticket?
If we'd've known we could've started a Go Fund Me page for you.


Hadn't realised John Daly apparently has special dispensation to use a cart now in PGA Tour events. All due to self-inflicted ailments presumably. Ridiculous.

Yes, I could afford them. Why pay when you might get free tickets? Really didn't want a 2.5 hr drive after a few hours of Swamp-A$$ watching golf.

Been there, done that after going to see the old St Jude (or playing TPC Southwind)

A bit harsh, if nothing else it would have been interesting to see how much a top player would gamble.

Sounds like a bit of a fair-weather fan to me. What's wrong with driving home after 7 or 8 hours on a golfcourse in mid-80's temps? Wussy Very Happy .

We quit watching the Scottish open before the leaders even got onto the back nine and that was only a 45 min drive home.  I have probably out wussied GPB.   Sad

I wouldn't doubt that, Mac, I just expected more of GPB - he's lived in the south for too long, not like his roots where men are men . . . . and so are the women.

Solheim Cup: Painfully slow. And no way the US women have ever practiced in weather like this. Advantage Europe.

Speaking of painfully slow, It took my 3 ball 4 1/2 hours today. we had to let 2 X 2 balls through. One of the guys in the group unbelievably slow. Sad

Don't buy that. America has wind. For example if you have played in Chicago, you have played in worse wind than that.
