I can’t confirm, but I think there was a new record for most holes in the water in one round on #17 at the Players today. The record was 50 from 1997, and Golf Channel showed 49 today with several players still playing their second round. Piercy put his in the water, dropped and hit in the water again - don’t know if that counts as 1 or 2?

Counts as 2.  Not sure if they were talking 17 or 18 as there was a lot of balls going in on 18 as well.

What a final round finish and a Players for the ages.  Is Cam Smith going to get it done?

Still looking for the official number of rinsed balls at #17... guess I presumed (based on prior event coverage) that we'd see a live tally.  So, until we have that, we don't know if anyone won. 🤣

HE is by far my favorite player on tour, has been for a while. My cousin and I were talking before he got to 17, Kisner was playing and we were talking about firing at the pin and how it takes huge kahones to do so on day 4 with for some of them alot of money on the line.

I love that Cam fired at the pin, go big or go home thats how you plant a long lasting name "remember when Cam went at the pin on 17 with a 2 shot lead and birdied?!" In the end that won him the tournament.

Actually remember when when Cam pushed his tee shot since he was aiming 10 feet left of the spot he landed

Thoughts on the Berger drop?

https://www.trendsmap.com/twitter/tweet/1503486725896683525

I looked at the PGA Twitter video and it is real hard to correlate where he dropped to where he wanted to drop. There was Top Tracer on it that should have been real easy if there was an on course commentator to confirm where it crossed.

Either way I think it was handle correctly by him and his playing partners, he eventually had to agree with Hovland and Daiman and take the drop further back and also post round Hovland and Berger seemed to be very level headed about it.

IMO the comparison been made to Patrick Reed's is completely unwarranted.

It's absolutely wrong to call Berger, Reed in this instance...or ever.

A lot of folks on board with the "if Hovland says it's true it is because he's friendly and doesn't like confrontation."

Anyone else wonder if it's also possible that Hovland is a nice guy who is wrong?

In the moment I am sure the player hitting the ball feels he has the best angle, I would tend to agree. I am of the stance though....dont put it in the water you wont have an issue.

Since they were a threesome, one guy arguing against two guys is pointless.

Remember in 2018 and again it was Joel Dahmen playing with Sung Kang...

Dahmen called out Kang's drop... and lost!!

I dont think hovland or dahmen were being at all malicious. I think they were doing what they thought was right. Victor is probably my favorite current tour player, but in this instance they were wrong and Berger was right about the point the ball crossed the water. Berger obviously wasn't happy, but did take the right path and do what his playing partners thought was right. 

It did cost him about 50y, so that was a big deal. Victor and Joel both thought the shot was a pure block to the right. And it never started left of the flag. Berger definitely started it left of the flag and is why he was so adamant about them being wrong.  

I mentioned this to my wife last week on why I have a really hard time watching the NBA, but the integrity of pga players on how they self officiate and resolve issues even when they know it isn't good for them is amazing compared to many high level team sports where getting the officials to rule in your favor is the only thing they care about. We were watching a game where one of the players batted a ball out of bounds, then spent 20 seconds arguing that he never touched it. It probably happens in every game played, and is just how that game is played, but to me of shows a lack of character and makes every player out there a cheater to the nth degree. 

Reed is the always held out for a couple rulings he has argued over on the last couple years. By NBA, fifa or NFL standards he would be the cleanest player in any of those leagues.

I honestly couldn't figure out why he was making such an issue out of it.  So long as he was behind the last point of entry, no foul.  Was he looking for a particular yardage or angle? Seemed like a lot of consternation over not very much difference.
