This is much more like the golf that I'm familiar with - the course that I play has rock hard greens and wind - always - you have to legislate for roll out and nobs and bounces.  You most certainly can't just point and shoot.

 

Could someone please ask Jack about the ball again? 

 

All you need to do is get the wind swirling and gusting up to 20 and everything is fine. :)

 

I guess I don't mind Spieth's whining - it's how he processes things - there was a time when I would have but I don't mind him nor did I mind an occasional word of club toss from Tiger nor Phil's seemingly over aggressive play - it's simply who they are - The real question is if they are bothering their fellow competitors and I'd be shocked if that were the case at this level of golf.

BTW I had a meeting at church this morning at 10 and have a service this evening at 6 - so I planned to stay because it's normally very quiet here in the afternoon, far quieter than my house at this point (we have a house guest).  I thought, "Great I will do some busy work and watch the tournament."  But alas, we have a new lawn crew and they've chosen Saturday afternoon at 3:00 to start their lawn work - right outside my window.

No rational reason why, but I'd love to see Langer in the final group tomorrow. Ideally with DeChambeau but it doesn't look like that is going to happen

What a putt by Day!  That kills me because I'm in a pool with a group of guys where there were no limits on who you could pick (A,B,C or Favorites, Darkhorse or that kind of thing) so I have Rory, Jordan and Dustin Johnson - Five guys who Rory, Jordan and Jason - I'm the only one with my combo so I'm already a guaranteed winner because we pay based on leaders at the end of each round with a double up on the final round.  I sat by myself last night!

 

That putt could kill me today.

 

On another note there should be a rule about wearing the same colored shirt - I'm trying to work and watch - I thought that Rory holed his putt and Jordan missed on 7 - I guess it was the other way around.  Rory is shooting himself in the foot with the putter and the driver today.

Look Jordan is odds on to win currently, but dear god would someone speed him up! All this towel nonsense? every shot Jordan? It's a cool day, your in a jumper.

 

How isn't he on the clock?

 

I'll win a few quid if he wins, but part of me doesn't care - get on with it Jordan.

 

If you haven't watched it all the way round, I have he teed off at 7.50pm uk time it's been painful to watch. Not made better by Rory being miles off his game.

 

Langer and Spieth final group might be very very interesting indeed.

Yep, he's brutal. But I think it's getting harder and harder to tell who are the really slow players b/c they're all slow. Kind of wish there were balk calls every time he backed off a shot for no reason...but...

Spieth's constant whining was hard to watch. The wind, the breaks on the green, the fans, being clocked by officials, his caddie... seemed like he had to blame something after every bad shot.

 

Everyone was affected by the harsh conditions, take it like a man!

He does that wherever he plays, this is nothing new, but the one thing I have never heard from him is any cursing. He talks to himself a lot after a bad shot, the only reason you see it more from him is the same reason we heard everything Tiger said, because they keep the camera on him for a long time during the round,. Like I said for Speith this is normal. It's not whining it's his way of working through bad shot, and I must say it has worked pretty well for him so far.

Possibly, he has been struggling with that miss right, but he has always talked to himself, he makes fun of himself at times too.

This day will come down to PUTTING. Since Jordan is the better putter, I think that's what keeps him in top today.

1 putts don't make much difference when there for a quad......

Worst Master's collapse...Speith or Norman?

 

Norman coughed up six shots to start the round.

 

Speith coughed up 5 on the back 9.

 

My vote is Speith.

Agreed, if he hadn't won the 2 last year they would ask if he could ever rebound from this.

I think I have posted this before, the game always beats the golfer, no matter who it is, even Jack and Tiger, or Jordan Spieth, a 22 year old young man.

 

The golf gods are always waiting to get us, sometimes it is subtle with those slow agonizing days like Day and Rory had, then once in awhile they punch you hard in the gut like they did to Jordan Spieth.

 

Where do the golf gods live? They live in us.

 

Next time I get a 80 yd pitch over water I'm going to be happy if 1) I don't chunk it, and 2) I don't skull it.

 

I bet DJ and Rory don't feel much better than Jordan.

Could not agree more. I really like Jordan and think he will rebound and learn from this. Today was just painful to watch on many levels.
