Been great watching the action how even Pro's struggle with long thick rough, I used to be a member at Liverpool in Sydney and the rough was just the same. Went out 3 shots for 3 months not fun, not easy when the ball is mostly covered and all you can try is get back to the fairway for Take 2 lol...

Happy Ryan Fox made the cut and needs another round under Par...

I’m a hacker who loves nothing more than to change how I play, be that grips shafts and heads its all fair game lol…

Does Colt nost count? Count me out on him when he thinks he needs to sound funny and cute. Now I know why Faldo decided to hang it up. Life's too short to put up with nost's BS.

On the PGA ths week, I'm very glad that Andy North is out there. Good to have Curtis Strange and of course David Duval. But then again, I'm one of the old guys nowadays.

Get rid of that hillbilly doing interviews...and I'm from the south.

OK- Saturday was challenging at Oak Hill for even the pros.  If you weren't watching it - there was a lot of frustration on the course.  Clubs flying, language flying, you saw it all today.  Rain, wind and cold.  My daughter was drenched, cold and ready to quit her shift of covering 13 on the hill today.  

Tomorrow should be a different game if they can get their heads straight!  70s and sunny projected for Rochester.  Who knows we could see the lineup total change.

Happy watching to all

If Michael Block can hold onto T8 position, he would win $535,000.  How cool would that be?  He is playing really steady and seems to be keeping the surreal scenario from overwhelming him. And, just his luck, he draws another even keeled, cool, Englishman, Tommy Fleetwood, as a partner for the final round 👍.

the pin placement on some of these holes is diabolical.

that, coupled with how thick the rough is makes this look like a US Open and not a PGA Championship.

whoever wins this is going to earn it. hard to appreciate how good these guys are.

The course is extremely well prepared and diabolical pin placement is exactly right as it was for rounds 1 and 2.  Having seen the course and the greens firsthand up close I can confirm from watching coverage on widescreen this afternoon and evening the TV makes the surfaces look flat and the contours are minimized - there is no easy place to put the pins on any green, returned to Donald Ross's original schematics about a year ago especially for the Championship. The sand traps have steep sides next to the greens requiring precision for shots on with punishing results for errant shots. 

I heard some off color explicative utterances for missed shots but also witnessed some brilliant shots of pure creativity and talent.  It's a good course and challenge to find out who's going to be the best of me best and weather is certainly playing its part to add variety to the variables.

Been tough to watch at times. I like the historic course, would have liked to see better weather. Feels like a cheapish Open Championship, especially today.  Major championship golf is supposed to be a test and this PGA is really proving up to be one.

Really enjoyed watching yesterday. As someone who often plays in the rain i really like that the pros struggle as much as I do (relative to skill) in those conditions. 

Also incredible how different the 9s play. Front is hold on for dear life and just try to get through it. Second 9 is seemingly the only real scoring opportunities.

Really hope to see Block make a little push today and move up to say -1 or -2. It’s been a really cool story so far and no matter how it ends it’s been great having this be a part of the event. First the Masters with Bennet and now the PGA with Block. Hopefully the next two majors have great story lines as well.

What happen to TV coverage last night? Not sure if this was a network issue or local transmission but the last hour or so the video and audio was in a loop - no distinguishable sound or images - the latter was blurred. It finally cleared up when Amanda Renner was doing her interviews. Frustrating

For me Michael Block is the best story of the weekend, Brooks a close 2nd , story that is.

I agree on Michael Block.  I’ve enjoyed watching that story unfold.  I’ve read somewhere that they are considering reducing the number of PGA pros that are allowed in, which I think would be a shame.

Michael Blocks run this week could change a few minds and keep it the way it is.
