Anyone know the reason why McIlroy had to hit his second shot from beside the green at the 13th before Schauffele hit his third from where he dropped it after going into the water? Schauffele looked much further away.

Yeah that was weird - not sure why!

Was a fantastic game that one though, great back and forth between the two of them, think Xander will be a bit frustrated to have not taken advantage of his birdie putt on 17 and that water ball on 13.

In fact all the quarter finals were good - Scheffler is so relentless, and Cameron Young has been superb all week. New caddie seems to have made an instant difference for him. Kitayama and Day put up good showings though, Day seems to really be getting back to his best...fancy he will be there or thereabouts at Augusta in a few weeks

Golf mate told me the answer. Opponents first ball ended closer to the hole than McIlroy, so it was McIlroys turn next.

I guess it makes sense in some ways because the player could elect to play the ball from where it was sitting in the pond. No way this rule has ever been used in that way in club comps though.

Rory's good, but Monty is still the greatest ever driver of the ball for me.
??? Not for me, but I will give him credit for keeping it on the short stuff a lot of the time when the ball wasn't as forgiving of poor mechanics as it is now. Don't think Monty comes close to players such as Nicklaus or Norman, for example.

Re. McIlroy's drive on 18 the other day. Saw that and it really was pretty impressive. Swing looked effortless as well.
When you adjust for technology, a prime Monty would probably drive it 300+ in the modern era and be much straighter than McIlroy. Just my 2 cents, I'm sure most won't agree.
No, Monty would not be straighter IMO or consistently 300+. Interesting to discuss given Monty's big deliberate cut, but that fairway would get a lot narrower, effectively, the further up he goes, so not sure I agree about the suggestion he'd be more accurate than a McIlroy hitting it ~350. It's not all tech either - Monty was somewhat lardy and dare I suggest it, unfit. So, no, I'm afraid I don't agree. Boring if everyone agreed though, I'm sure you'd agree...

My favorite rag in these parts is the "New York Times." For those with access or who haven't used up their minimum number of articles, there's a wonderful piece about LIV golf today: The World of LIV Golf.

A fine read. Worth checking out IMO.

The high from this Sunday's final round in Hilton Head ... Fitzpatrick's 179-yard laser beam 9-iron to about a foot. Class stuff.

The low ... Cantlay taking an eon to decide how to play his ball wedged on wood posts. Bring on the shot clock!

I saw the highlights yesterday Shotrock. Fantastic shot. I like the fact that his driver head cover is a replica of the lighthouse. Sky commentary was saying it's his second favourite place and he has been visiting since he was six. Good stuff.

I wouldn't say any of them are particularly quick, but Cantlay was taking the mick on Sunday at times - the tour is going to have to do something about it soon surely.

Fitzpatrick was excellent, as was Spieth, the playoff was top quality iron play all round. Fitz seems to have got over that reported neck injury from early season with a top 10 at Augusta and this win...rounding into form to defend his US Open!

Too bad Kwini does not post here anymore. Oak Hill is in his neck of the woods and I suspect a course he's played a few times. It really looks good, and with wind and rain in the forecast I expect some high scores the next few days. Be curious to see how the LIV boys do going forward ...

Talking of high scores, interesting to read that Billy Horschel said that an 18 handicapper would struggle to break 150...

Anyone else see Rory's outfit today? Grey/brown rain suit that looks like a tracksuit with baseball hat on backwards. Scottie Scheffler exactly the same.

....and Jordan Spieth said "I don't think there is a win in me answering this question to be honest....." Just asking for an opinion. Worried about the backlash from 18 handicappers all over the world?

Brooks Koepka wins the 2023 US PGA by 2 shots from Viktor Hovland and Scottie Scheffler.
Third US PGA for Koepka, fifth major overall. Maybe as important first major win for a LIV player.
Koepka with 5 majors joins the legends the game.
Losing the Masters must've hurt but Koepka showed everyone he's still got the dog inside him.

A stone cold non-whining professional who really gets up for the majors. Hard not to admire that.

Do we think he has a shot at the career slam?
Obviously has gone close at Augusta a couple of times so he fits nicely there, but don't ever remember him truly being in contention for an Open yet (some top 10 finishes there still, and I might be forgetting one!)

I do think he has a shot at the career slam ... but I'm hoping Rory get there as well (first even!).

Too bad Hovland made that error on 16, but even if he didn't it was still Koepka in control.

Can't help but be impressed by the irony of it being the PGA championship.

There's no guarantees in life, but it would be a big surprise if he doesn't win at least one Masters.
As for the Open, if Mickelson can win it, then why can't Koepka?
