FedEx Cup Playoffs

Well that’s something we hadn’t discussed but it will be now. The schedule change moved this tournament into the heart of thunderstorm season the Southeast just as it has created some potential issues for preselected PGA venues in the Spring.

Very sad and fortunate it wasn’t worse.

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

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.

Definitely. Golf Channel article makes it sound like it was more debris from the strike that injured people rather than them being struck by the lightning itself. Scary stuff nonetheless.


The lightning strike was on the news, scary. Lucky no life threatening injuries.

Does it really matter if you are killed by a being impaled by a branch or electrocution?

It’s a disaster either way particularly since the event was originally contracted to be played in late September when the risk of this sort of weather would be minimal.

The tour should flip its PGA venues to the tour championship and play the next several PGAs at East Lake.

Of course that won’t happen -

Playing later in the day with a 30 player field in late August in the southeastern US to accommodate TV!

What could go wrong?

Rory vs Brooks final pairing would be a great way to end the season.

You may get your wish Grasshopper. Both playing well, Tournament has finally caught my attention. Supposed to rain this afternoon so may settle in and watch the finish.

A win would be a big boost for Rory in that scenario - would be great to see him back dominant.

That's a fact - great ball striker who is not afraid to go low. I'm finally engaged 🙂

I’ll watch a bit. Haven’t had a chance to enjoy watching golf since round 4 of The Open.

Just think... pretty soon we will be talking about The Masters.

Hope that lost ball isn’t the deciding factor for BK.

True that. He’s as mentally tough as it gets. If anyone can claw back it’s him.

Indeed and in good company. Would really enjoy that for Rory - he's had a good year and yet he feels like he has underachieved.
