I’d be ok with that!

I think his true goal aside from a chance at completing his career slam is to qualify for the Ryder Cup...this would help for sure.

 

Nick is looking really solid.  No "holy hell, I'm in a match play with Phil Mickelson on Sunday" jitters.  That bunker birdie and subsequent long par save putt may have been the difference.

Phil is making a mess out of this. Nick looks like he’s doing OK with 3 shot lead into the 9th.

Have to vacuum the car.....

Holding back to make it a thriller?... had dinner with Duval last night??... someone broke into his locker and adjusted the lies???  More like the young kid didn't fold like a cheap beach chair and Phil's in shock. 🙂

What an interesting Sunday at PB. I was sure lefty could hold onto the momentum both he and Day fell by the wayside. On the other hand lefty's performance was better than last week.

I did not know DJ's father-in-law was Wayne Gretzky... learn sumpin everyday 🙂.

Well, technically he isn't because they are still "engaged".  🙄

Maybe DJ and Paulina are trying to set the record for the longest engagement in the history of mankind without ever actually getting married.  I mean, for crying out loud, they've been engaged since August of 2013, and already have two children together.  Why not skip the semantics and just 86 the "engaged" BS if you actually aren't going to get married.

But I guess in this day and age marriage is meaningless to most people.

I arrived at my golf club at 2:20 pm, as Mickelson was getting set to play the 6th hole in the final round. I warmed up on the range, and played 18 holes in 2:45 and when I got back in my car to go home Mickelson was on the 15th hole at approximately 5:30 pm. I had a warm up range session and walked 18 holes in the same amount of time as these pros played 9 holes.

I made the comment to my friend that if I was ever offered an invite to play in the Pebble Beach Pro Am I would turn it down. 6 hour rounds are insane, no matter at what golf course, tournament, or level of golf you are playing in. Not that it will ever happen, but if I was a PGA Tour pro and had the option of picking events, and skipping others, I would skip Pebble Beach because of the abhorrent pace of play involved. It's a giant circus sideshow every year, so that Bill Murray and company can entertain the crowds with everything but playing actual golf.

Look, I get it, some people live for this sort of nonsense, but I guess I am not one of them, and apparently the top players in the world agree with me.

Watching the replay, and I think it's hilarious that it's windy and cold, and everyone is wearing multiple layers, and then you see the caddies wearing shorts.  LOL.

I was really hoping phil would win this. Stumbled to an ugly finish. I am not sure those hollow body distance irons he is playing right now are doing him any favors.

had nothing to do with the clubs.  They could never figure out the wind all day.  Was totally driving him, and apparently everyone except Jordan Spieth, nuts all day.  The scoring average was well over +2 for the day, so Phil wasn't playing all that bad.  Factor in how tiny those greens are at Pebble and I think he did an amazing job posting the score that he did.

Why do we always point to the arrow when we have a "bad round", rather than look a little further at what the underlying issues of a "bad round" are?

For example, I was getting really pissed with a few of my irons yesterday, because I was hooking them something fierce.  Cost me a couple of bogeys, until I simply moved a bit closer to the ball, and all of a sudden the hook is gone.  Well duh, nothing wrong with my irons.  There might be something wrong with the moron hitting those irons.  In fact, I'm fairly certain it's the moron hitting those irons.

But having to play in 20 mph winds on a course where the greens require extreme precision is a recipe for an average score well above par.  No shame in anything Phil did yesterday.

I don't totally disagree. I am also looking at the small sample size of the events he has played this year. he had issues about both the farmers and in Dubai with iron distance control. Friday and Saturday he was completely throwing darts then today with the wind, and pressure, I am wondering if it got to him again. 

There is no bigger fan of Phil than me. I am hoping he gets in to the US open and plays well this year and gets a few wins. He has caught a bunch of heat for trying really hard to maintain speed in his swing and I would love for him to thumbs up these guys and hold a trophy or two.

I get the sense from his comments prior to this tournament that he is basically flipping off the USGA and really is hoping he doesn't qualify for the US Open so he won't need to find an excuse to opt out of playing in it this year.  I just point back to him skipping it a couple of years ago because one of his kids was graduating high school or something like that.  He certainly doesn't need the money, and he certainly doesn't need to play in another US Open to validate an otherwise stellar career.

Potentially. I do think he would love to have a US open trophy in his case. Does he need it? No, but I think he really wants it.

Someone essentially said the exact same thing over the weekend on Morning Drive.  I can't remember if it was Jamie Diaz, Stuart Appleby or Matt Adams?!?!?

Either way, it appears to be the consensus opinion around the PGA Tour according to them.
