First topic message reminder :

I actually had occasion recently to view Tiger's leaked nude photo. Have any of you seen it? He may not have calves but he's blessed in other areas

Personally, its so very minor, to being irrelevant. Yet, you keep banging on about it.

Is it just golfers? Or anyone that uses a middle or nickname that upsets you?

Why does it bother you for me to give than more suitable names?
Goes both ways.

It bothers me because I like to understand things, and when a view makes no sense at all, I like to question it.

Not on about your religious extremism. Just your hatred of nicknames or middle names being used. Is it just golfers?

We use my sisters middle name, and I know that's the same with members of my wife's family. I don't think its that uncommon.

I know a couple identical twin guys named Craig and Greg.

I figure if I say the name really quickly then I get their name correct.

Sad to see this thread... The last "notes" thread from Kwini...

I sure wish he would consider coming back... I must admit I come here a lot less due to his absence.

As I wish Super would come back. We didn't agree on much, but I think both of us enjoyed the joust. We were both usually pretty hard-headed on our opinions, but at least as far as I'm concerned, he address me fairly.

Yeh it would be great if we could get kwini back on here. I really miss him and his thoughts on the game.

With the bigger events and the Majors over the spring and summer hopefully some more golf focussed chat might bring some of our lost posters back.

Love this!

We've all done it I suppose. If you're the one hitting, it's all apologies; if you're the one getting hit at, the temptation is to hit it right back at them.

But I checked Rory's score, he birdied it!

Their styles could scarcely be more different. Lee seems to be really enjoying life at the moment, hopefully he can maintain his carefree approach today and achieve victory.

Connors, BdC and lw1. The hottest golfers at the moment.

Hopefully lw1 won’t choke again, but twice in the drink ain’t good...

It hasn't got much better since then Pedro - but still somehow only one back, if he can pull it together coming in over these final five...

Well done JT. And at this point you can't look past LW for the exhibition event in the fall.

Superb round of ball striking from JT - he lost two shots on the greens with the putter today and still came through!

Shame for Westwood not to have put one of those two away, ultimately hung and just beaten by two of the worlds best. No shame in that

Considering how LW did the last time he played the RC, I am glad he is a near lock for the team now.

Don't think there is much of a chance that he keeps up this purple patch for another 7 months.

in a way, I was hoping LW would win today (GASP) I want to see if the European Media would change their opinion about the Players as a 5th major.

I thought the Players felt more like a Major this year than it had for a while. The years when it was held in May just didn't do it for me. Something about this March date has it feeling like it's old self.

Another great week to be a golf fan. Really enjoyed all 4 days of this event.

Westwood did well to get solo second given the way he was hitting it off the tee, and grinding out par like that may well have won it under not so different circumstances.

BDC's top? Pretty much the worst shot I have ever seen at a pro event. Saw Furyk badly thin it about 150 off the tee once but it wasn't as bad as Brysons.

Not saying JT's majorless streak is as bad as Rory's but weeks like this show it is getting there. This guy should (in a pretty lose sense) have bagged at least a couple of majors by now.

Thought it was a pretty low blow from the interviewer to mention his grandfather dying just to make him cry. Why bother?

Mac - Rory (by the press and so many fans) is held to a different standard. He doesn't *deserve* that but it comes with the territory; I suppose for being so hot out of the gate early in his career and also that he carried a lot of Europe's hopes along with him.

JT was plenty fortunate with his drive on 18 staying dry, but the ball goes where you put it!

I agree, that if Rory spreads his 4 majors out over his whole career to date the narrative is very different.


I liked the honesty of JT's response to his drive on 18. He clearly didn't mean to hit that shot shape, or certainly not on that starting line.



Is this a crazy thought. This late career purple patch from Westwood is the sort of thing you see from all time greats. Jack, Player, Watson, Phil etc. Sort of proof that he had the game to win big in the majors just probably couldn't do it mentally. Also I am not saying he is/should have been an all time great just that it is further proof that it is a total anomaly that he didn't bag several majors never mind just one.

I thought that about the interview too Mac - seemed like he just wanted to make him cry, and then the awkwardness of ending the interview after that question, and JT just standing there weeping and him not offering any comfort...I thought was very poor form.

I can't imagine it will be too long before JT bags another major, he's not been too far off since his last win (three top 10s, an 11th, 12th). He wins so regularly another is surely on the horizon

Westwood is golf's greatest nearly man. Like Jimmy White or Tim Henman. Never thought he'd triumph, even with the two-shot overnight lead he had on Saturday.

Late career purple patch indeed, quite a few lesser players than Westwood have bagged Majors. He’s been so close several times. I still think Turnberry ‘09 was his golden opportunity but the cards just never fell for him.

Here’s a ponder...How many gave Darren Clarke (Westys old RC partner remember) a cat in hells chance a few months before the 2011 open?...which incidentally was at RSG...and where’s this years open? What odds is he?

2 points:

Westwood has been playing well for a while, not just the past 2 weeks; he did with the RTD last year, in case you missed it.  Unlikely to stay quite at this level for the next 7 months sure but still a useful foursomes, if not fourball, partner for somebody in the RC, Fitzpatrick perhaps?

Why would the European Media do anything of the sort?  They didn't when Lyle, Garcia, Stenson, Kaymer or McIlroy won it.

Second hand info, so take it for what it's worth ...

At a tournament at my club and one I was working at in September of 2018, Phil was surely going to be playing early (no cut event) Saturday. So, I heard from a caddie that he's planning to get back to his hotel room as soon as his 3rd round ended. There, he had the hotel bring in 4 or 5 more TVs to his room so he could watch multiple college football games at the same time. Ya think he's interested in betting?

With Ego Norman's latest comments this is not the start the LIV tour was hoping for.
