Well whatever he lost, Cameron Smith gained.  He looks a bit heavier and stout this year...or is it the new mane and stache doing that?  

Looks like Hideki and Smith are on the same diet😳

Well, the guarantee of hitting the ball a long way and blowing away the field is once again proven incorrect by Bryson shooting a smooth +6! Just TWELVE strokes behind the leaders.

I'm guessing just cut height.  Someone on the forum, on another "excessive distance thread", provided some interesting, very telling, data on fairway cut heights over the decades.  Basically, they've been getting shorter as the years roll along. 
Like you and [mention=88299]ncwoz[/mention], long rollout fairways are the exception not the norm for the courses I play.  It also seems that many of the landing areas the longer hitters get to are downgrade... the perfect combo for crazy drives.


Trust me there aren’t many “downgrades” on that course. It’s extremely flare other than the dirt moved for the green complexes. There may be all of a 10 foot elevation change throughout the course. :)

It’s hard to imagine fairway length making up for wet turf but this time of year with temps in the 80’s and a week and a half of no rain I could see it. I’m guessing that’s it.

Our green speeds right now are incredible, they can get them really fast because it’s just the right temp for it.

Look out tomorrow and the next few weeks.

Yea Kevin, I wasn't really speaking specifically about Concussion but rather all the various courses played on the tour schedule.

Well "moving day' definitely saw a few relocations on the leaderboard. I was playing today and didn't see any live coverage but looking forward to seeing the finale tomorrow. 

I was trying to find some new information on why Wolff withdrew and there still is nothing officially released that I can find.  I did find this article interesting and a little concerning at the same time.  He was apparently quite aloof most of the day and, uncharacteristically, kept to himself. Could certainly be some personal matters going on that affected his concentration.  It's easy to forget just how young some of these players are.

This was a very sad read. I’ve seen any number of people abnormally effected of course it’s bound to happen to athletes.

My sister in law is about to die and now my cousin has Ovarian cancer which is never a good thing. One wonders if those women avoided normal doctors appointments due to a fear of COVID. I think we are starting to see the impact of that type of stuff now.

I hope he is able to snap out of it as things continue to loosen up.

I took this picture to try and illustrate that the ground in Florida is still pretty moist. This is 20 yards behind the 9th green at our local muni today.

This is why I marveled at how dry the Concession is.

Yup.  Had he been able to keep that to a double, or worse, a triple, he's leading right now.  Collin looking very solid and in the zone... someone is going to have to take some chances to catch him.

Yup, no doubt. Doesn't seem like anyone is quite ready to make a surge and take it from Colin at this point.

Great win for Morikawa!!  Shows he can win from the lead as well as come from behind with a star-studded field.  Lots of hype for the new young stars; he has jumped to the top of that group for sure.

He played every shot that he needed to.

Interesting how low these guys went. Not likely to see scores that low at Honda or Valspar but this course was fun -constant risk reward

I think it was more interesting how high some of their scores were.

Actually I think the diversity in scoring and also the blow up holes that many players experienced made this a great course for a big PGA tournament.  It might be the new measure, in fact, not that the course defends par but that it defends good play.  The people that struck the ball well, managed their game to avoid big numbers while attacking when birdies were available, putted and chipped well, did the best.  What more could you ask for?

PGA National bludgeons you to death.  There's no option on several of the holes, no place to miss and if you get the wrong gust of wind you're toast.  In many ways its not fair.  Copperhead is a great course but there aren't double bogeys lurking around every swing and in the grand scheme of things the greens are pretty benign, slope front to back sort of things, small though so they do reward solid iron play.  Concessions made them think - I'm going to have to adjust my thinking to accept that this, rather than final score, is the better test.

I think these kinds of setups are quickly becoming my favorite to watch. Even though Collin had things going so well throughout the final round and was in control, it still felt very possible that he could get tripped up on a hole and let some other guys back in, or that Brooks or someone else might put together a whirlwind last few holes and really put the pressure on. There's plenty of tournaments that basically feel wrapped up if there's a 3 stroke lead on the final 9. Concession (to me) didn't truly feel like it was done dealing until Brooks didn't convert the birdie putt on 17
