Recommended Posts

Phillip making his debut this week on the Champions tour.  Highly favored to win... I am going to really enjoy this if he plays in more events.  He is going to help out the Champions Tour a lot, and get it some more coverage hopefully.  


100% of fairways hit as of 5:22pm today... what?  Phil is not a fairway finder.
 

Maybe he will finally get that US Open win...

Currently at -7 and sporting "the glasses".  I'm glad to see that he has chosen to join this tour and think he'll have a lot of fun and success.

I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t dominate for years to come.

Indeed.  But we're talking Phil here.  I had him on my Fantasy Team and he consistently got my hopes up on Thurs/Fri and then summarily dashed them over the weekend.  These being only 3 day events, might change that trend.

True, but he is playing a golf course that he can hit iron off most tees. On the back 9 (think it was 15) he went 4 iron-8 iron into a 472 yard par 4. And if he does hit driver the fairways are a lot wider than he is used to.

If "Phairway Phinder Phil" shows up to Winged Foot in  just a few weeks, do we have a storybook finish on our hands?!?!?!  Nah, probably not - but I will be hopeful!!!

Not for nuthin', but does anyone know why this Ozarks tournament is a Monday - Wednesday event?

I think he is going to destroy the champions tour, he was still doing alright with the young cats. Don't get me wrong he has plenty of missed cuts but is an incredible golfer and playing in the Champions might bring back the confidence he needs.

I agree, if he chooses to play more events on the Champions Tour he will not only be their biggest name/draw but he will also be the leading money winner for a few years to come.  The only one that could beat him is...HIM.  Bernhard Langer run at the top would be over quickly.

Phil and the addition of K.J Choi, Mike Weir, Jim Furyk, and Ernie Els, to the field is going to make Bernhard and a handful of other of the tours top players have to work lots harder.

Winged Foot May play a touch longer to the tune of about 700 yards so he will have to hit driver more instead of the irons he is hitting off most tees this week. They moved the event to get Prime Time TV coverage according to what I heard in Faxon’s show today. They don’t have to compete with pretty much any sports with a M-W schedule.

He did a pretty good job of it today. Overall -17 and -7 for today.

Phil is playing pretty well, but those fairways are huge compared to PGA Tour fairways and certainly US Open fairways.

And he's has a reputation for being Pholding Phil.  😁  #Iamsuchanidiot
