Brooks Koepka is the defending champion for the next two events but with a lingering knee issue, can he contend this week?

 

Couple changes for some big names.

 

Justin Thomas will have Jim "Bones" McKay on the bag for the next two events as his regular caddie, Jimmy Johnson, is recovering from some dizzy spells.

 

Tony Finau will have Mark Urbanek on the bag this week after cutting ties with his long-time caddie Greg Bodine before the 3M Championship last week. He was rumoured to have his brother, Gipper, on the bag this week but has instead turned to Urbanek who's caddied for James Hahn and Charlie Wi in the past. Finau will take his time naming a new full-time caddie so it's not a permanent gig for Urbanek at this point in time.

 

I've always enjoyed the WGC events. Disappointing that Tiger won't be playing this week but he'll be back next week for the PGA Championship at Harding Park.

 

Any predictions for the week?

Matthew Fitzpatrick played very well at the Memorial with Bones on the bag.  I think JT will also do well with Bones, but I hate to put a hex on him by making him my pick.  

I think I'll pick Patrick Reed.

About Bones...  I'm thinking that since his knees are healthy again, he might want to dump broadcasting and get back to what he loves.  Anyone need a good caddie??  Oh, that's right!  Tony Finau.

Bones has some fantastic insights but I've always felt he talks way too fast, or tries to use too many words. NBC would lose a solid on course reporter though if he did go back to looping full time but I think you might be on to something with him being a good fit with Finau. I'd like to see Finau try to get him on the bag for a week when JJ is back on JT's bag.

TPC Initech was looking particularly "office space" yesterday during the charity match.

I didn’t realize fire ants could be such a hazard to request a drop. I guess Bryson could be deathly allergic to them...the tour official that had to have that conversation with him was not very happy.

Fire ants fall under Rule 16.2 for Dangerous Animals. Clearly Bryson was trying to use it to get relief from the broken branches that his ball was caught up in, but it is a rule and a different rules official might have granted him relief.

Given some of the other situations in which people have gotten free relief, or tried to a la Kuchar and his embedded ball in the fairway on second bounce attempt, I don't blame Bryson for trying to use the rules to his advantage to get out of playing a ball that was tangled up in some broken branches.

Why not, they track everything under the sun.

It's cool to see Brendon Todd leading the tournament.  He coached my grandson in Church League basketball last Fall.   I didn't know who he was until my step son ask me if I knew  Todd was a professional golfer.  He played for the Georgia Bulldogs golf team and has a residence in the Athens area.

I agree! For me, it's going to be several weeks. Just had a medical procedure and no golf for 4 to 6 weeks.👎

Why can’t Rickie hold-on? He gets close, then fades in his final rounds. Seems so odd that he can’t finish the job.

I’m REALLY happy JT won, especially since he missed-out vs Morikawa, then because Bones was on the bag, and finally I’m just not a Koepka fan at all. JT is a good dude!
