Raining and supposed to rain all day. I hope it does so they all have to play in it. Not just the first groups.

Tiger is back to even par. He could run away and hide.

No, the course has been roped off for anyone that isn't named Tiger. Really, it's about time..............

No, he doesn't. He just goes around ruining people's threads. He even is allowed to ruin Kyle's threads. EvenT_O_M C_A_S_H wasn't allowed to do that.

Remember when sergio bitched about tiger getting better tee times a couple years back? I guess this evens things out a bit.

FYI

Bethpage is designed by A.W. Tillinghast, a great course designer. If you want to play one of his courses you need to drive no further than Swope Memorial in KC. Swope is a GREAT course. In fact, it's one of Tom Watson's favorite courses in the world. Not a bad endorsement. It's public, too, and green fees are pretty cheap.

If I could play with a pro it would be Watson...to play with a legend AND talk chiefs football? Couldn't be better than that.

I saw that sign. That would run off 90% of all golfers. They obviously have a huge base of players to draw from.

Did you see when Jacobsen walked that part of the fairway? He thought they'd have to take relief 50 yards away. It was a total swamp. The rules allow relief. Why be penalized by hitting a good shot into an unplayable area?

Yes I did see Jacobsen on the opening part of the broadcast. If it's too wet, then it should be postponed. Does the R and A allow that relief in the British Open?

WilliamTheIrish
06-21-2009, 01:04 PM
Mickelson just hit a drive off the tee that spun back about a foot on the fairway.

Yes, casual water rules are very specific. The USGA and R&A rules are exactly the same. It's interpreted for specific conditions, but dropping a ball 15 feet from the original area gains no advantage.

I thought Barnes might drop a couple shots but I figured someone would have to jump up to -4 or -5 to catch him.

What if those 18 end in a tie?

I wouldn't be surprised if they played the extra 18 today, if it came to that - the final round is about over.

If the extra 18 ends in a tie, as it did last year, they just go into sudden death...

Will Glover shoot Double Bogey on the 18th?

It seems like if he just plays it safe he'll be fine.

Unlikely. It's such a short hole, I'll bet he takes something safe off the tee, and just goes for the middle of the green...

Buck
06-22-2009, 12:10 PM
Well I guess technically if Barnes Birdies and Glover Bogeys then it would be a tie...

w/ Glovers tee shot I could see that happening.

His tee shot is in the fairway. He's only got a 9 iron into the green.

I'm watching it on the computer...It looked like it landed in the rough???

Shag

Too bad 18 is such an easy/short hole. Glover took a mid iron off the tee, and only had 146 left. Bad finishing hole...
