  1. You got a link? Always like a good underdog story.
  2. Looking at the field, I think it comes down to Rose or Reed. Rose is trending up he just needs to finish. Since you are already are picking Reed I'll take Rose. But I do agree with your analysis on Reed and a quick look at his season stats seems to back you up.
  3. It seems like it something no publisher gets around to asking about what keeps the best players from pairing up. I mean besides what has been stated. Either when it first started to now it seems like everyone kinda skirts around this detail and it just seems to be at the player's discretion. I mean this article mentions how great of a pairing Morikawa/Wolfe is but they don't ask why more top players don't do it more often or why two top 5 players are allowed to play with each other. Of course they do talk about how chemistry seems to play a part in choosing your partner. So maybe egos are why don't have more top heavy power pairings. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/pga-tour-zurich-classic-team-strategy-xander-schauffele-patrick-cantlay-collin-morikawa-jon-rahm-justin-rose-henrik-stenson In regards to the Schauffele(5)/Cantlay(10) pairings- “I think you definitely want to get along with who your partner is and then you want to grab the best player you can possibly grab,” said Patrick Cantlay, who will tee it up with Xander Schauffele this week. It helps, too, that they’ve become fast friends. At the 2019 Presidents Cup, Schauffele and Cantlay, each with a sense of humor ranging from dry to sarcastic, bonded over nightly dinners and card games. On the course, they played four matches together, going 2-2 for the week, but scored a key Saturday afternoon foursomes win over Sungjae Im and Cameron Smith as playing captain Tiger Woods sat out. The victory helped close the gap on the Internationals and the Americans went on to complete the comeback in singles the next day. They’ve been regular practice round partners on tour since."
  4. Gotta love southern food and I live for the spice. That sandwich looks great!
  5. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Well I started in middle school but took a short hiatus between college and last year. Handicap of 20ish. Never got an official handicap cause I never did big tournaments. On a good day I can almost break 100. What do you love about golf? Getting out by myself it's just nice to have some time to myself with my thoughts and hitting some great shots no will believe I hit. In a group it's nice to have people you know having a good time and playing something we can all enjoy and roast my swing. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Can't really remember how I found MyGolfSpy. I have been following for a while and now I am trying to be more social on the forums... Although that is a toughie as my wife describes me as not the most social of people and I have a RBF that could kill a bear. But I generally like people. Where are you from? What is your home course? Originally from the PNW now in SoCal. I guess my home course is Pacific Palms Resort as that's the one I played the most since getting back into golf but I am always up for suggestions. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best is I can golf year round the worst is all the people who know and enjoy that with me as tee times are full sun up to sun down. What do you do for a living? I am an analyst for a healthcare company. How’d you pick your user name? I am not very original so I just used my name.
  6. Josef Baldwin Park, CA US Living in socal I have access to courses almost all year round; however, most evenings when I am off work the putting greens are usually full or I don't have time to go out to practice I have used putting mats at friend's and family's homes and have liked a couple but never quite got the feel of some of them I would like using a medium speed as that's about how fast the greens are at the courses I play at. Would be great to use on slow days working from home. Can't be too big with our apartment size but any and all practice is good practice!
  7. Josef, Baldwin Park CA, United States. Playing with a Hippo XXL. I would love to try out the Tyne 3, I don't know how to explain it well but the way it looks like a blade when you stop focusing on the copper and instead on the black looks pretty cool. Wondering if that would help with getting rid of distractions and to focus on the ball and putter position.
