A course that most pros hated before the renovation in 2008. Only events I remember being there after hat was the quicken loans 4-5 years ago. Don’t recall hearing anything from the pros good or bad.

The parts of the course I saw when I did a pxg fitting a few years back had some of the rolling fairways we see in courses in that part of Maryland. There were some tight holes

It's nice seeing Fowler back near the top. Starting off a little wobbly today, hope he keeps the wheels on 😬.  The course, with help from the weather, certainly seems to be playing tough - projected cut at even or -1 as things stand now.

For me Rory is the face of golf and has been since the 2011 masters despite the ups and downs he’s had. Truly magnificent to watch. I hope he does well this week & we can start to see what we saw at the end of the 19 season again

Did they suspend/DQ Sergio for his anti PGA tour comments yet?

Bite your tongue... he's on my FTx team and should make the weekend. 😆

So I hadn't gotten fully spooled up on this latest buzz about Sergio. Sergio Garcia Lets Loose After Lost Ball: 'I Can't Wait to Leave This Tour' - Morning Read (si.com)

Not very surprising to me.  He like a handful of others seem like they are in the primo point in their careers to "cash in"... while they can.  With their window of opportunities on the main tour quickly closing, and bonus bucks being offered by LIV, I suspect others are thinking what Sergio blurted out in frustration.

It is definitely an interesting dynamic;  does the tour "suspend" all the players that have submitted applications to play?  If there are big name players involved what will the short and long term impact be to the PGA tour?   While we will know some of the names soon,  I think it will be close to a year before it all settles out.  Success or failure of the LIV tour will have to be shown before the PGA tour will have to make a significant move.

Asking for just an exemption I don’t think they would suspend them but if they are denied the exemption and play in the Saudi league then yes.

There’s big names rumored already with Sergio, Poulter, Westwood, Bubba, Fleetwood and some other Euros. While they are all big names none of them really are contenders week in and week out on the PGA tour. I don’t see these guys not being on tour having any negative impact. 
 

If would take the likes of Bryson, DJ, Rahm, Morikawa, Rory, JT leaving to have an impact

Watching the early coverage on ESPN+ and the British Open has come to Maryland.  
 

i can’t believe they are still able to play.  We’ve had over 2” of rain since yesterday. 
 

They had to dramatically improve the course drainage during the remodel. There is no way the old course would have help up.   Looks like they will get it all in by Sunday at this rate  

Pulling for Denny McCarthy a local kid who played HS golf just a few miles from Avenel.   Also of course pulling for JDay as I’ve told the story many times about him and my pro am experience many years ago.  Plus Chad Ramey as another media acquaintance played with him in the Pro Am.  Said he was a great guy snd lot of fun  

Also pulling for Rickie and Wolfe  of course.  So many great stories

Lots of wet areas for sure.  I'd venture to say there aren't many courses that would even be playable after 2 inches of rain.  Almost every shot off the deck is a splash... yuck. I personally hate playing in rain 🤮.

Yeah. Us Marylanders are use to lousy spring weather, so it’s no big deal 😬

I’m kinda enjoying watching them deal with the rain and cold.  We haven’t seen much I’d it in the British Open lately.  It’s like 50 degrees here today with 15 to 20 mph winds.

I was supposed to play in an  AM Tour event today at one of our courses.  I encouraged our Super to close the course so I didn’t have to cancel and lose part of my registration.  Ha

I don’t know if anyone saw the early coverage.  But on the 610 yard par 5 2nd hole.  Many of them were having 195 to 205 in for their THIRD shot.  Driver was going about 230 and their FW were going 185 to 195.   
 

I think it was Luke list who had the shortest in around 150 and he hit 7 iron. 😳

Having lived in Puget Sound for 30 years I played in "the soup" but opted not to as much as possible. The only times I've injured myself playing golf is playing in the rain; wrenched my back losing my footing on a swing, and broke my left ring finger on a punch out 4i when my grip slipped.  Considering how little they pay me to play this game, no thanks. 🙂

Keegan's post round interview was telling about conditions... "I used my 7i from 140 yards" 😲.  And Jason Day posting a 79... ouch 😖.

7 iron 140.  Thats almost my game.  As bad as it was. I think the leaders caught a break the last 9 holes.  It “let up” quite a bit from what it was when the first wave went out.

Rory quietly sitting there at -2.   Could he make it interesting tomorrow!

Here’s the forecast for tomorrow.  No rain expected.  But I can tell you 50 degrees here with no sun and wind, will not be fun.  But obviously the greens will be soft, so there could be some low rounds.

I attended the Kemper Open when it was played here and I played it in the mid-nineties and was shocked that it was designated a TPC course. I believe it's been remodeled twice since then and watching it on TV it doesn't even resemble the same course.

Though I'm neutral as a fan of Jason Day, it was very sad to see him collapse like that, I thought maybe he'd finally get another tour win after a 4 year drought - especially after his health and Mom challenges. Brutal weather, changes who's competitive and not, some players have experience with that kind of weather and some don't. I think today's DC forecast is still cold & breezy, but less rain if any.

It's always sad to watch formerly great players who run into issues with their game - Day, Speith, Fowler, Schauffele, Fleetwood, etc. Some come out of it like Speith, others may not.
