The crowds were crazy from 14 through to 18, getting over to 16 and 17 was nearly impossible. We followed Reed and Deleat from 1-14, but the crowds were so massive at that point we stayed at 14 green

I'll be there all week, working as a marshal Thursday and Saturday. I'll be happy as long as Spieth or Bubba doesn't win. Haha   Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

Actually,  this PGA will hold more interest to me than it typically does.   There are many interesting entertaining scenarios and aspects.   Will Speith reach the career grand slam?   Has Rory rec

After the debacle 13th at The Open that had me switching to the PS4 to gaming one can hope that the PGA is a much better tournament. The Masters was incredible with it's dramatic back 9 and playoff, Koepka coming thru for the first time at the US Open was memorable on so many levels, but the circus at Birkdale tainted this years majors for me...

And it won't get better with the PGA. No matter how good the golf or competition is, it never feels all the way like a major.

 

Maybe they should swap out the PGA with The Players on the major circuit. At least it's got a legitimate identity and some seriously exciting finishing holes.

I'm pulling for Rickie until he wins one.  I know it's got to be coming soon. That being said, I would also love to see Spieth get the career grand slam.  There's several big names that are playing pretty well right now, so it could definitely be a battle to the end.

I'm with you. If DJ can't win, I'd like to see Rickie take it.

 

However, the thing about Rickie is he's so inconsistent that he's only going to win a major if everyone falls back and he just maintains. He'd have to start the final round in spots 5-10, post a good score, and have no one beat it. I'm just not sure he's clutch enough to knock it out and take it home from the lead.

It's difficult to follow up a great round tournament with another great round tournament.  This one's Rickie's.

As I have stated often, I would love to see Rickie get the major monkey off of his back.   But, I am beginning to wonder if he ever will.   In the majors, he seems to find a way to clutch a defeat out of the jaws of victory.   Never the less, I am still hoping.

 

The golf commentators have noted that no one has achieved the career grand slam by winning the PGA, it has always been winning one of the other majors.  The PGA kept Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson from the career grand slam.  I wonder why, I have no idea.

My theory on why nobody has completed the grandslam by winning it is, "Its hard to win the career Grand Slam"   

 

 

By nature at least over the past 20 years or so, the PGA tends to have some obscure winners..Shaun Micheel, I'm looking at you.  Players that are not very likely to win 3 other majors in their careerss.   yes there have been some really good players to win it,  Rory, Tiger and Phil.   That is 3 of the best players of the last 20 years and only one of them has the career GS, winning one of those other three, let alone all three of them, just doesn't happen very often.

 

Not sure, I'm making my point very clearly, but I could simplify it by saying it's the "easiest" of the three to win, so everyone generally has it out of the way by the time the career Grand Slam comes into conversation for them.

Spieth won't complete the grand slam in a given year, too many courses will require hitting a driver in the fairway.

Probably right!

Now this we might be in agreement on.  it's why I don't like him at Quail Hollow.

I would like to go Rickie but I'm not sure he ever wins a major...as Butch Harmon said "

he needs to decide if he's a professional golfer that wants to win or just earn money. So I'm betting Rory and Spieth are the final pairing on Sunday. And as a Rickie fan, maybe he's around lurking (and the. Shoots 73 on Sunday)

My buddies and I always pick three players: who we think will win; our sentimental favorite; and our "dark horse".

I'm picking Rory to win, Kuch is my sentimental favorite, and John Rahm is my "dark horse". I played Quail about six weeks ago and hitting fairways is a must plus the new greens are treacherous. Having said that someone will probably shoot 61.

So I've gotta ask, what tees did you play and what did you shoot? I'm always curious how average Joes do on major courses.

How can you have Rahm as your dark horse.  Dude has been playing really well this year.  I would think he would be on the favorites to win list of many people.  I think my dark horse would be Adam Hadwin, with Speith the winner and Fowler at my sentimental favorite.

I played at 6100 yards and I shot 87. I actually scored better on the back nine. My front was 45 and 42 on the back.

I doubled 18. My drive was so close to the creek i had to backhand it back into the fairway and then I three putted.

The beer wasn't quite as good after that finish.
