blast! he's in my pick :(

Me too. Watched the shot tracker on him. He probably had more shots out of the bunker than he did off the fairway today. Finished +4 which is honestly pretty impressive considering. He'll clean it up I'm sure.

found a live stream from Eleven Sports (never heard of them) but its decent coverage (720P)  apart from sitting on my uncomfortable pc chair for hours. Way better than radio though ;)

 

 

P.S this is the 1st Major this year I haven't gone with Rickie Fowler............and he's leading lol

I have no idea what's going on because our internet at work died. I hope I didn't kill it by trying to stream too much.

Also... who the heck picked “TNT” to have the coverage... seems “cheap” to me, adding to the stack of reasons why I dislike this tournament. They and I can't get TNT with my HULU subscription. [emoji58]

Several things stand out after Round 1.

 

First off, except for Zach Johnson and Gary Woodland, none of the pros visited this course prior to Monday.  And some didn't even see all 18 holes before teeing off on Thursday.  A lot of the post round interviews contained some semblance of the pro interviewed saying, "this course is easy if you hit it in the fairway."

 

Is it because the WGC Bridgestone was last week and the top players all had that on their mind as the free money grab, so they didn't have the time to visit Bellerive ahead of time at least to scout it out?  I mean, I've read or seen countless reports about pros visiting the site of US Opens months and even a year in advance to get an idea for how to play that course, or to just familiarize themselves with the layout.  But here we have a course where the last time any of these players might have played it was 2008, and all but two players showed up on Monday and took their chances; most having only played maybe 1 practice round?

 

The second observation, after watching the featured group of Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari is that both Reed and Koepka were pulling driver every chance they got and often times ended up in bad lies, or in bunkers in the fairway, rather than laying back a bit and putting it in the fairway.  There was one par 5 in particular where both Reed and Koepka ripped driver, and then pulled 3 wood in trying to reach the green in two, only to find themselves in really challenging 3rd shots around the green.  Where only by chance did Molinari land his 2nd shot about 60 yards back of the green in the fairway, and then threw a wedge to within 5 feet and walked away with the birdie.  Neither Reed nor Koepka could get close enough on their 3rd shots to get up and down for birdie.

 

Either it's the lack of knowledge of this course, by not doing any homework on it by Koepka and Reed, or this was their strategy, considering the course only has two par 5's and they felt they needed to go for it no matter what and take their chances around the green.  Frankly, if I had to guess, they were just playing this blind and letting it rip, and then today they'll adjust their strategy to account for bad course management on Thursday.

TNT has been doing the broadcast for the PGA Championship for as long as I can remember.

I really need Eddie Pepperell to go get smashed tonight so he can play good golf tomorrow. Someone get that guy a drink!!

If that strategy actually worked Fuzzy Zoeller would have won 25 majors.

Nice notes. My favorite part about this course Id watching guys hit out of the rough and then being completely baffled as to why the shot went 3/4 the distance they expected.

 

This course is not easy but I think the strategy is less complex than other courses. I think it was JT in his presser who was basically like, hit fairway, avoid bunkers, get on the green. Easier said than done but multiple players were basically saying the layout and strategy is right in front of you it's just a matter of executing. Hence most players resting up instead of doing practice rounds.

 

Rose didn't even hit a shot until yesterday...
