Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

Just got in from playing. Have played my best two rounds of the year the last two days. Really hitting my irons pure.

Players out this afternoon have to plot a course over the next 3 days to try to get to 10. A good chunk of that has to be today and front 9 tomorrow. Rory will probably win at 12 or 13, but they've got to get to 10 to get any pressure on him. Even par Sunday will be a great round.

Disagree. You set the target at -6 to win, with -5 to tie.

They had a list of players that have been 10 under par or lower for the whole history of the US Open. There are only 5 or 6 total players on that list including McIlroy.

Seems highly unlikely another player will get that low this week.

If you want to finish T55, you'll try and catch him. To win, you have to play like Jack Nicklaus. Controlled aggression. You have to hope that he falls back and you can putt your ass off and meet him in the middle, because you're not going to be throwing darts at weekend pins at the US Open.

If he shoots 74-74, which are still average scores, he finishes -5. That has to be your target number until Saturday is done with. That's when you can worry about going Johnny Miller.

Deal. Anthony Kim it is. I heard he beat Robert Allenby in matchplay while drunk. But I am rooting for this McIlroy kid. I wanted him to win the Masters. He'll get it done soon.

I think his 8 stroke lead will comfort him through the double bogey on 18 just fine.

The lead will be 6 shots over Yang, and most likely 9 over several others.

The early groups being shown on TV seem to be scoring well in pretty favorable conditions. McIlroy is about 30 minutes to tee time.

Rory with continued great play. We have seen this before, but if he keeps up this level of play he is easily in the discussion as top current player. If he chokes like Greg Norman was not a fan of condoms 22 years ago it will not be pretty.

McIlroy's golf swing is just a thing of beauty.

The USGA has to be fuming over the amount of rain this course has received, because it's an absolute sitting duck right now.

If anyone saw Mickelson's round today, it should come as a wakeup call to him, but it probably won't.

He had it going pretty decent through 8. He hit a good shot from the rough into a greenside bunker on 9, but took a bad angle out and then ran a 9 foot birdie putt 5 feet by.

On ten, rather than hitting an 8 iron, which was more than enough for him to get to the back tier had he wanted to, he hit 7, flew the green by 8 yards, and ended up dead, making a 4.

From there, it all unraveled. He made a hideous 3-putt bogey on 13, he missed deep with a SW on 16 (doing a horrible job of controlling his distance), then chipped short, then, when just on the fringe, rather than putting it out, he hit another chip, which went 5 feet past, then he missed that putt.

From the fairway on 17, he took a six, after misclubbing and missing the green on the right fringe, then four-putting, including a three putt from six feet.

The funny thing about all of this is that he's really only made two course management errors this week. What has killed him is his swing, which hasn't changed an iota since he was with Rick Smith.

He still goes way to far past parallel, he gets way too steep, and he hangs way back. As a result, he misses everything to the left. It also makes his distance control on his irons horrendous.

If he wants to contend in any more majors for the rest of his career, he's going to need to shorten his swing by about 18 inches and give up 15 yards off the tee. He's already plenty long.

-16.

Mike Davis is going to get his ass kicked for this.
