Wow, it's been a year already - pretty amazing.  This was the first full event cancelled following the C19 pandemic.  But, like Phoenix rising from the ashes, we're back 😍. Will this be Rickie's breakout from the slump? Will Rory repeat... making him the first to ever do so? Will BAD start a new run of overpowering courses and the field?

I've got all 8 of my FTx players in and have my money on Webb.  Who ya got?

Would be hard to bet against Bryson right now, it will be interesting to see if Spieth continues to play himself back into contention, Rory fell apart on the weekend at Bay Hill and Rickie hasn’t sniffed a leaderboard in a long time.

Can’t stand DeChambeau (I’ve seen him act like a spoiled child in person, and on tape) but he won BH fair and square, so credit to him. He hit the shots and made the putts he needed to when others didn’t, so I don’t begrudge him legit wins, when he’s had some epic fails.

Ha. Sure sounds like you begrudge it. Thats as a backhanded congrats as I’ve ever seen. 
We all have those we like and dislike.  But given he’s very well liked among the majority of his peers, I’ll go with that. 
 

Care to expand on what you mean by Epic Fails.  I think it’s safe to say anyone on the PGA Tour has lost far more than they have won, probably in Epic fashion as well.

Rory's post round interview was interesting.  He is clearly frustrated with his game and the inconsistencies. To me it almost sounded like he wants to take a break from tour and regroup... anyone else catch that drift?  Rory has been a bit puzzling to me the last couple of years.  At times I get the sense he's half bored with tour golf.  Lots going on at the home front and perhaps some of the fire is gone?

...of course now that I've said that, he'll probably start running the table again 🙂.

The 2018 Porsche European Open was an epic fail followed by openly snubbing the winner - I don’t know of another PGA pro who displayed that kind of poor sportsmanship. Five over on the last four holes including a triple bogey, two balls in the water, to lose on the 18th is out of the ordinary as well, qualifies as an epic fail in my book.

I had forgotten that #17 was where the "better then most" call was made.  Can you believe that was in 2001?

LOL...Really, I mean it's replayed 650 times every Sunday during most broadcasts 🙂 

Couple other tidbits about it.  In some videos of it, you can see Bones (Tiger was paired with Phil) just shaking his head in disbelief like, this guy always does something.  ha   Also most people seem to think it was in the final round and led to victory, but it was actually on Saturday he began that round pretty far back, as hehad had never really played well at Sawgrass in his previous trips there.    He was paired in the final round with Jerry Kelly of all people...and it was a Monday finish due to bad weather on Sunday. 

 

Also it he no doubt was playing the best golf of his career at that point, he had won Bay Hills the week before and would win the Masters a couple weeks later, to complete the "Tiger Slam"

Too bad, he can't be there for the 20th anniversary of it this year!

Another detail I forgot to mention was that Fred Funk was in the group ahead and had just four putted that green from virtually the same line and at about half the distance....crazy game.

Well if the media starts foaming at the mouth over DeChambeau like they did Tiger for all those years, count me out. I like to see and hear about the entire tournament, not just one golfer.

Speith has come close in the past few weeks so I'm putting my money on him (but secretly I'm pulling for Rickie's comeback as well). What's not to like about a comeback story.

Viktor Hovland for me. Kid is so fun to watch play and always looks like he’s having fun.

The 5th Major! I love the Players, and now that it is back in March it is the teaser for the start of the golf year. We haven't had the Players Sunday for two years.

I was hoping to see Koepka play in top form this week so it's unfortunate he is out. Spieth won't be able to win unless he controls his driver better. Morikawa should do well. Will be interesting to see if DJ can get back on form. Looking forward to this week.

I think this, along with the WGC’s should be considered majors.  The best field in golf, and the WGC’s have the top players... why not?

The Players to me has the same or better stature and importance as the PGA Championship. The Players is the premier tournament of the PGA Tour. I'm not sure why the PGA Championship is still a major.

The Players is my 4th favorite tournament of the year, ahead of the PGA but after the other majors. TPC Sawgrass is a challenging, unique non-traditional course IMO. So I look forward to watching The Players every year.
