Running 2015 golf thread

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Feb 6, 2015.

  1. I know the season doesn't start for a few months ;) (I don't care what the PGA says - wake me two weeks before Augusta unless Tiger or Phil wins, or Rory shoots 59)

    Not sure whether to love or hate Patrick Reed.
    Shit, even Bubba Watson think this cat has issues.

    Really long single-page story on Reed and background ...

    Then there was this news ...
    Patrick Reed's wife reportedly had Reed's parents kicked out of US Open - CBSSports.com

    Guy can play. Could also blow himself up. Not the first time in sports history.

    More people are ticked off at the R&A for leaving television partner BBC after a gazillion years.

    I think Tiger will compete in the Masters whether his game is ready or not. Greatness is often about living in denial, and he's not ready to face the music just yet. Hell, he'll probably give it a go at the Honda, unless I'm totally misreading the situation. It would be fascinating to see him take the Jordan mini-retirement and go away for a few years, then come back refreshed and ready. It would also be fascinating if he was like "You know what? I'm not catching Jack. That record is his. But now I'm playing golf for fun and for me, so let's just see how it goes." But again, he's not wired like that, and wouldn't have gotten to 14 in the first place if he was. But some serious time in therapy might work wonders for him.

    49-year-old John Daly is trying to laugh in my face with my "Tiger is toast and won't conpete again" prediction with a bogey free 65 today.

    As some of my friends on Twitter pointed out, he's shot a 90 more recently than a 65 in competition.

    That's one funny thing about golf: you can get into a zone, like unconscious, perhaps aided by substance, and have a great run.

    Keeping hot over four days is tough though. The mental and psychological aspects fascinate me. Pressure. I'm always reminded of that Billy Joel song.

    Snedeker shoots -22at Pebble to beat the record of -20 held by Snedeker. That's what 4 days of 75* and no wind gets you.

    Oh......after the opening 65 from Daly......72-73 = MC
