And the PGA Tour (wheel) turns. Another week, another no patrons event... when the world dishes out lemons, you make lemonade. A bit of a lackluster field IMO... what's up with that?¬† Did The Memorial hurt some feelings? ūüôā¬†I've got Rafa, Harman, and Piercy in the FTx... that should get my trajectory moving back toward Tin Cup winner.

Agree.  You know, there is such a very fine line between those with multiple wins and those with 1 or 2.  It makes me wonder what the stats would look like if events were 54 holes.

I like Tony as well.  Depends if he is very upset with his weekend performance last week and gets focused, or if he's deflated and falls off the earth.

Like last year, the winner could be a relatively new face.  Will Gordon impressed me last week.

Just watched his not so highlights on #18... yikes.  I know these guys are confident with yardages but were that me, it's heading to the back of the green after splash #2.

The 9th hole was giving people fits today and deservedly so. It was playing as a 512 yard par 4  with water all down the right side. The green has a portion that extends of water and that’s of course where the pin was today. The scoring average was 4.53 and had 17 double bogies or worst. Only 8 birdies out of 155 people!

Other than hole 9, lots of birdies. Do y’all like to see a birdie fest or something like the Memorial where it is a grind the whole time?

Piercy is on my MGS FTx league roster... the guy often seems to be in another timezone. I could be wrong, but he seems content with middle of the pack finishes.

I prefer the grind.¬† It makes them appear more like us mere mortals. Seeing 5+¬†under/round scoring gets boring to me. Honestly, I'm not sure I'd enjoy the game if it was that easy... though I'd like a taste of it a few times¬†ūüėÜ.

Also, Pat Perez looks like a pirate.

PXG should quickly make a new ad with him before he shaves it off.

I also like Finau but he’s got to learn to close the deal.

OMG. Finau's new caddie, Boyd Summerhays, calves look like lobster legs.  TGC just showed a comparison of yesterday and today... ouch!  It wouldn't surprise me that he can't complete the event.

I think there’s a place for both. I wouldn’t want a bloodbath every week but like to see three or four a season including one of the majors.

In response to the weak field comments, consider what events are coming up next on the schedule:

Next week = WGC

2 weeks = PGA Championship

4 weeks = start of the FedEx Cup

I am actually surprised that certain big names are even at the 3M this week given turn around needed to make these bigger events.

Yes, good point. But, the Friday afternoon departures a good many of them have been having of late might suggest more live play is needed.

What about the seven wood, yes a seven wood in Michael Thompson's bag? He hit absolute beauty with it on hole #12 today (I think it was that hole, where it got Faldo's attention). High arrow straight and held the green. 

Wish my seven wood shots would do that...¬†ūüėÉ
