I would think that's an unusually high number.

Mac, you're a self confessed hacker. How do you know that your idea of "course prep" is correct and his is wrong? Have you got any examples of why you think he's not doing his job?
McIlroy doesn't seem to be doing too badly this year.
Also, what makes you think he would have a positive impact on reading putts? One persons idea of a break/pace etc is completely different to someone elses.

I see Kisner was wearing a 1776 cap during his practice round today. Is that a thing that Americans do now?

Kwini, looks like a front is headed our way early next week. Temps are supposed to be in the high 80's

I am planning to be in Memphis during the mid week. If I can score some tickets, I might go on Thursday (and it is not too hot)

Yup, See my earlier note.

Northern VT due for a weekend heat index in the 100's for 3 days. Memphis weather!
Have you heard of any no-shows? Imagine Woodland might be a bit dodgy.

Good luck for getting to a day's play thumbsup

The Temps in Vermont were in the high 90's when I got to Burlington on July 5th last summer for my sister's committal. 36 hours later when I got back to my motel in Enosburg Falls, it was 48 deg. That felt so good!

I wish I could have caught up with you when I was there, but that whole week was one thing after another. as my father is nearly 98 yrs old, (Don't mean to sound morbid) I am sure it won't be too long before I make another trip up there.

I don't think Woods will be playing next week, I think we would have seen a commitment by now. He has never played Memphis before. DJ was a regular at St Jude. Not sure why Woodland would be dodgy.

I was surprised to see a lad who was a couple of years below me at primary and secondary school being the Course Manager at Portrush now. His CV will get a significant shot in the arm this week after what I've seen. Course looks fantastic and has everything that TOC doesn't.
Very good news that Slumbers thinks it will stay on the rota too, hopefully to the detriment of TOC's 5 year cycle. At worst I'd hope that was pushed out to 6 or 7 years.

I just hope that, if this rain softens the course, the wind will still play its part.

Agreed Kwini, tomorrow wind looks to be a factor according to the forecast! Shame they didn't play into today's rain and wind haha!

Is 9C nursing a secret injury? His lack of play this year is suspicious, even by his standards.

I had heard he had a two week holiday in Thailand. In his press conference the other day he said he was playing less to enable him to play longer. But as with Woods, it could all be a smokescreen. He also said he doesn't play Wednesdays.

I think the only thing going for 9C is that he isn't religious as far as I know.

I'm sure he will be when it's politically expedient to do so - like when he praised his Buddhist faith for guiding him through the morass of his serial infidelity being made public.

Cant beat a bit of religion for some forgivness,
Weather over Thurs/Fri will no doubt be a factor.I suppose we should be giving Lowry a bit more of a chance he must know his way around.

Hopefully better weather than at the K Club in 2016 though.

Has anyone opined the potential winning score for this year's Open? Going off of 2012 Irish Open, and despite between 1 to 1-1/2 shots of difficulty added to the course since then... I'd guess mid-to-high teens under with little wind... Low double digits with moderate winds... And anything from -5 to EVEN if it gets quite blustery...

I told you why I'd get rid of the PGA as a major so whether you agree with me or not you do have an idea why!   Wink  kiss

"The PGA is nothing but a glorified tour event with 10% of the field qualifying by only beating fellow club pros (and I'm saying that as someone who has a mate who qualified via this route in 2013)."
If I were getting rid of one, it'd be the Masters for me. Small(ish) field, glorified invitation and course doesn't do it for me really, for all it's a glorious vista and tells me the golfing season proper is back again. The Players in its place perhaps? Certainly a stronger field at The Players. The PGA typically has one of the strongest field depths, if not the strongest, I think.

Looking at the forecast I can’t see double digits under par come Sunday evening. I’d hazard a guess -6 will win it. 2-3 club wind in different direction each day and very few have any great familiarity with the course. Expect De Chambeau to finish about Tues once he’s recalibrated everything each day :-o

Speaking of familiarity with the course....good start for Rory...wtf???

Sky seemed unable to show what happened with Rory's tee shot in the 5th but after putting it apparently into DEEP trouble and the commentators casting doubt over whether they would even find it, they later cut to him playing his second shot from a relatively clean lie. The said he got a "line of sight" drop because of scoreboards - I wonder what the odds are of his NPR being in the only relatively decent lie for acres around?

Do you think he got some third party assistance?

No I'm just suggesting he was very lucky (not only to find it) but his free drop to NPR just happened to coincide with such a clear patch of grass

As I said, Sky didn't show it so I can't comment further - it just seemed an incredible stroke of luck
