Two events B2B in Sin City... I wonder how much money the guys won and lost during this 2 week stay in the area?  It would be a pretty fun couple of weeks for golf fans to spend in Vegas.  Attend the events and likely run into a few players at the casinos and buffets (PGA players do buffets, right? 🤣).  Shadow Creek GC is really stunning looking on TV, I'd love to give it a try.

Jason Kokrak returns to defend his 2020, first tour victory.  We see a good many more of the top players return to include 17 of the Ryder Cup teams players. I was so far off base in my predictions for last week (Na and Scheffler) that I should sit out picking this week... but I won't. Harris English and Cameron Smith duke it out on Sunday.  Who are you picking?

The First Look: THE CJ CUP @ SUMMIT

I'm sure the players like having B2B events at the same place - travel must get old for them.  I see you are in Reno.  I pass through there each summer when I go to see my brother and sister in Sacramento.  I did not go this year due to the fires/smoke but in 2020, I stayed overnight there on my way back home and played Lakeridge and Wolf Run.  That signature hole at Lakeridge is pretty cool and, I made the green from the middle tee 👍. I liked both courses.  I paired up with a FedEx co-pilot at Lakeridge who is right seat on 777 freighters.  We got totally lost in discussing that airplane the entire round.

NICE!! Let me know the next time you are in the area. Lakeridge is fun. That par three is total trip. 

 

Wolf Run is fun. The course is nice but and the greens there are always lightning.

Well Jason has left himself a heck of a steep climb trying to defend his title.  He secured dead last, #78 position, all to himself 😬.  Nice showing from Rickie at -6.  He acknowledged and thanked the sponsors for the exemption.  It seems odd to say Rickie Fowler and sponsor exemption in the same sentence... but that's how fickle this game can be.  Players seemingly go from the penthouse to the outhouse at the flip of a switch.

These "no cut" events take the drama out of the typical events.  I kind of get the WGC events (limited fields) but It's not clear to me why several others also have no cut - anyone know?

Would like to see Rickie do well so we can see him in more events this year.

How cool is it seeing Jim Mackay on JT's bag.  Obviously it's just in his blood and being there first hand is something he was missing. Hard to say how this gels but it could be lightening in a bottle. 

Justin Thomas and Bones Mackay are already gelling in their new marriage

Meanwhile, Keith Mitchell hasn't seen a putt on the course that gives him concern.  Someone is going to need to bring a mega size Atlas Van Lines truck on moving day tomorrow to catch him.

Yes, on replay.  The manner in which it did a near half circle around the green and just perfect speed into the cup was really cool.

Who is this Rickie guy?  He's still gaming the MMT iron shafts - how is this possible 🙂. Plenty of holes left today to take the outright lead into tomorrows final round 👍

I guess when you get a sponsor invite to play, you better quit playing trash golf.

Rory joins the "20 or more" wins club... joining a very select group.  A really good final round with Morikawa posting a crazy good round and Rickie looking like he may be back to form.  I was listening to the round on PGA Tour radio while driving to southern Utah for our overnight stay in route to AZ.   Listening to golf on the radio is kind of fun... much like listening to baseball games, it makes your mind work at imagining the situations, shots, and putts.

I've never listened to golf on the radio, but I can picture what you are saying. I used to enjoy listening to baseball on the radio. Living in Cincinnati in the late 80's/early 90's, I remember Joe Nuxhall and Marty Brennaman. They really could paint a picture with their words.
