Okay - I'm off today - one of the benefits of being a Pastor is that you always have a Pastor with you. This one had five sermons to draw on from last week.

 

So we did one of the conference services as a family devotion, I read one of the sermons that I wrote and I'm now camped out in front of the TV.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Is it just me, or are the attendees MUCH more well behaved than those at the majors and other events held here in the states?  

It's not just you.  American golf fans are becoming an irritating and might I add embarrassing PITA.  

 

Conditions today must be a bit tougher - lots of the early tee times recording black numbers.

Getting tougher by the group. This is why you have to love golf. Yesterday guys were driving it to the front of the green on 1. Today? Rory just had 88 after hitting driver.

 

When I turned the TV on at 745 the wind gust were 15. Now they are hitting close to 30. This will be a wild day.

Ball striking and long putting will be the key! (3 putt avoidance)

So everyone complained about the US open at Chambers Bay and that it wasn't visually pleasing....but the accolades for Carnoustie with browned out patches on the fairway and crop circles on the green come rolling in....why? Because it's "links golf"? That's b.s.

I'd say the terrain and layout just looks better. Carnoustie looks better then Shinnecock to me as well.

Fair enough I just think the criticism of CBay was unwarranted...but maybe it was different in person.

I liked the layout there.

Of the 3 you listed I'd put Shinny first, CB second and Carny 3rd

Can you bring a tennis racket to a golf tournament and use it to rebound the ball back into play ?? [emoji38]
