  1. Maybe I have been listening to No Laying Up too much but I'm growing increasingly frustrated with TV coverage of PGA events. The commercials being a big thing but also their choice in who they show on a Sunday or cutting away while a rules official is about to talk to a player are a few more examples. If you could change any aspect TV Coverage of tournament events, what would you do? For me, outside of what was mentioned above, on Sundays, I would show the money lost/gain on the outcome of 18th hole for players finishing. That adds drama! I want to know why that Birdie/bogey makes a difference.
  2. Golf podcast discussing Fed Ex playoffs and Fed Ex Cup predicted winner. We talk Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Daniel Berger, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, Importance of putting in clutch moments vs. Long drives, Olympia Fields Major Conditions, lownscores, who madw the Tour Championship vs whom did not, and what we as amateur golfers are doing to get better. We make predictions and all three of have names that start with M. Boom. We love the PGA Tour. These guys are good. With guest Mohamad.
  3. Another stop in the NASPAR circuit. Some interesting things going on today between BAD and Collin. They are teamed up with Na and Homa. From what I can tell... Bryson can hit a hybrid 305. Insane. May the best pit crew win! I am picking DJ.
  4. The New Year has arrived and it's time to turn our attention to the PGA Tour! Get ready for the: 2019 MYGOLFSPY FANTASY GOLF LEAGUE The MGS community lends itself to large fantasy leagues which boost the drama to nail-biting hair-pulling levels (just ask @blackngold_blood). This will be a great opportunity to connect with fellow posters and chat about the PGA Tour all summer long. @Berg Ryman and I will be your humble commissioners. The format will change from last year and we're working with Fantrax to see if they can add a new option for the season/playoffs. If that doesn't pan out, we have a plan B that we'll roll out. Both options will be geared to maximize drama during the season and in the playoffs. In the meantime, it's time to start gathering players. So, who's in?? Platform: Fantrax Buy-In: Free Draft: January 30, 2019 9:00PM EST (can be changed by popular demand) Draft Format: TBD pending league size Format: Head 2 Head - Details TBD Scoring: See Below League Size: As big as we can get while remaining even 1st Tournament: AT&T Pebble Beach - February 7, 2019 Playoffs: During FedEx Playoffs Prize: For returning players, the 2018 league has been renewed and all of your profiles carried over. There's no action required from you on the Fantrax side, but please confirm your interest in this thread. Until your name below says confirmed, you're not in the league: BjornsBoys Cam’s Gotta Big Putt - Confirmed Carolina Golfer 2 - GolfJunkie302 - Confirmed Jahren01 putt masters - Confirmed Low Country Hacker - Confirmed MGoBlue100 - Confirmed mpatrickriley - Confirmed Mudfish - Confirmed Rhyming Bergs - Confirmed pineapple squad - Confirmed poprocksnbirdies - Confirmed Shankster - Confirmed Stud Muffins - Confirmed tom mc - Undershooter30 - Confirmed Newly Added: GolfSpy Stroker GB13 bardle 02uwmadgrad TSauer cnosil blackngold_blood Apolloshowl Russtopherb Jbmullin DannyDips GeekingGolf Asef HQ Intern Kyle GolfSpy Dave 00sportsman Alanpe HardcoreLooper If you're new and would like to join for the first time, drop a comment in this thread then shoot me or Berg a PM with your email address. We'll get an invite headed your way. For simplicity, the point values were reduced by the highest common divisible (5). Anything that used to be worth 5 points, is now worth 1; anything that was 10, is now 2 and so on. The scaling and weight is exactly the same as before. The only new category is Par for 1/2 point to keep course setup from blasting our players. Scoring Summary: Albatrosses: 4 Birdies: 2 Bogies: -1 Cuts Missed: -1 Cuts Made: 2 Double Bogies: -2 Eagles: 3 Holes In One: 4 Others: -3 Par: 1/2 Top 25: 5 Top 3: 5 Top 10: 5 Wins: 5 In addition to expressing interest, please comment on any changes you'd like made to the scoring or format. No promises that they'll be incorporated, but now is your chance to make recommendations. Stay tuned for more details. Good Luck!
  5. https://www.geoffshackelford.com/homepage/2019/1/30/koepka-on-pace-of-play-guys-are-already-so-slow-its-kind-of-embarrassing Not only is Brooks right, but I think it's only a matter of time before someone finally gets DeChambeau to pick up the pace and knock off the intentionally gamesmanship that he displays against his playing partners, by intentionally waiting to start his conversation with his caddie about whatever it is they talk about, until after the other guys have finished hitting. I mean, if you want to talk about air density and a thousand other things no one ever thinks about, fine, but all I think anyone is asking here is that you abide by the pace of play guidelines that the Tour has in place. Eventually the Tour has to buckle to the pressure if enough outside influences keep this topic as alive and well as it has been for some time now. I'm just surprised we have such a blatant horrible penalty on a non-issue with Haotong Li that gave him no advantage whatsoever, when pace of play actually does affect the other golfers on the course, not only in your group, but also behind you, as they wait on every shot because you are too busy crunching numbers on things no one besides you has a clue about or could care less about.
  6. How about it Spies? Anyone going to be watching (after football of course...)? This is one of my favorite tournaments since it reminds me of our two trips to vacation on Oahu including just last year the week after this same event. Love Hawaii and dream daily of visiting there more in the future. Ahhhh, the sun, the surf, the drinks....sigh... I know we have a few spies who live there (@yungkory for one), and @SteddyGolf used to be stationed there also. Curious if anyone has ever gone to watch or even are planning to attend this year. If so, please share some pics, videos and anything related. Also, please share your picks and anything related to this tourney here. Me? I going with Bryson. He just looks to be in some sort of weird zone lately. Second for me is JT. MAHALO!
  7. I'm no math whiz but that equation looks wonky and until roughly 3:00 PM EST, Sunday 8/26/18 the answer was actually "10". But after grinding out a final round (-2) 69 at The Northern Trust, Bryson Dechambeau turned it up to "Eleven" and joined the following list of professional golfers that have won 3 or more PGA Tour events before their 25th birthday over the past 30 years: Phil, Tiger, A. Scott, Sergio, A.K., Rory, Spieth, JT, Hideki, P. Reed. Of the 11 names currently occupying this list, only 3 have yet to claim a major title: A.K. - this mystery deserves further study; Hideki - it's only a matter of time; Dechambeau - the subject of this thread... Alright, I've thrown enough historical numbers at you. Let's focus the rest of this discussion on the "Mad Scientist". Love him or hate him (I personally fall somewhere in the middle), this man is playing a different game than the rest of the tour; and quirky as it may be, the stats are getting harder to ignore. FedEx Cup Rank: 1 OWGR: 11 (how serendipitous) 2018 Cuts - PGA Tour : 19/23 (technically adjusted for injury related WDs 21/23) Total Strokes Gained: 5th B.A.D. has been making history since his college tenure (5th player to hold both NCAA Championship and U.S. Amateur in the same year - Nicklaus, Woods, Phil, R. Moore) and upon turning Pro in 2016, seems hell bent on elevating his game to equally rarefied professional ranks. But how is he really getting it done? This question is the heart of the matter and what I find so intriguing. During interviews he exhibits a supreme (to the point of annoyance) confidence but just last month cameras captured the driving range meltdown reminiscent of a weekend hacker. The foundation of his game champions accuracy over length but coming down the stretch we have seen the swing science go awry with some shots that are absolutely off the map. It's now clear that the protractor wasn't his sole trump card. So let's suss it out Spies...
  8. Hey everyone. I have started a WGC Bracket challenge over on the PGA tour website. http://fantasybracket.pgatour.com Since I'm not a big wig I don't have any prizes other than bragging rights. League Name: My Golf Spy Password: MGS2017wgc Admin's: If I have hit one O.B. by taking this initiative please accept my apologies. EDIT: Major kudos to jason for taking the initiative and starting this. A couple of emails later and we have a SPONSOR - the awesome folks at SNELL GOLF!!! Snell Golf is generously donating 2 dozen MyTour Balls to the cause - personally I think we should agree to send one dozen to jasonthepharmacist for getting this thing started -- provided he agrees to share some cheap Canadian medication with us!! -- JMB

  10. Just wanted to share a ~1 hour interview with PGA Tour winner and Impact Zone Golf founder Bobby Clampett.

  13. Could this be a sign that Tiger is officially done? I don't think that will be determined until after The Masters.
  14. Reports out of South Korea suggest that Bubba is on the verge of switching to a Volvik ball for the 2017 season. This is interesting......if it is true.
  15. Yeah, so Tiger shot 70 today and thats all I've heard about for the past few hours. Do we really care what Tiger shot in a Pro-am? I'm excited about his return, but come on. Here is Tiger talking about getting back out there. The best question from the short interview....."whats it like to be out there in pants, walking". LOL
  16. Does this swing have longevity? Definitely a change from his violent tendencies of the past. I guess we'll find out soon enough.
  17. Impressive performance by Hideki Masuyama at the World Golf Championships in Shanghai. Any time you whip the field by 7 strokes you know you've had a good weekend.
