    I think at one point it was said the QB tees were like average 30 yards up on the 4s and 5s.

    Woods and Mickelson played the course at 7,243 yards. Brady and Manning played it at 6,857.

    So that's about right, since the par 3 tees weren't much different if at all.

    I thought it was good entertainment, but they milked it too much. Nearly a six-hour round.
    I got caught up with something and didn't turn it on until 1:45 (it was supposed to start at noon here). They were on the third hole. Then it got dark by the end.
    It was fun when other guys called in with donations for good shots, especially Koepka and Wilson. Three of them achieved Wilson's criteria (only Tiger didn't) on the par-3 17th, so he donated 300,000 meals.
    The Barkley thing at the end was a waste of time. His coach, Justin Thomas, reminded me of a coach I had for a P.E. golf class in college. "Aim for the green." "Try to get it close to the hole." Gee, thanks, why didn't I think of that?

    It started 50 minutes late because of rain.

    The producer was on the no laying up podcast this morning. He said the plan all along was to start 30 minutes in, and then they gave the golfers an extra 10 minutes to warm up.

    Phil was a great partner. I’d rather play with him any day. Dude is a dudes dude.

    The moment where Tiger conceded Phil a five-footer and Mickelson went over to Brady with real concern and said, "that's not a good sign" was my favorite.
