Like he picked it up in the back corner of a thrift store on his way to the course.

Seriously if I saw any random shlub on a course with this bag, I would feel pity and probably compelled to give em some of my stuff.

Great start but all downhill from there. Playing like real crap today. Fearing the worst. Tiger tards, retreat. :nope

When Tiger shoots a score like I might, nothing good comes of it. 76?!?!

The PGA TOUR will break the quarantine seal in America in June. Will be interesting to see how it goes over. Will people return to the sports entertainment well with great thirst? Or will the concept of millionaires playing for millions of bucks smell more rank than usual with the majority of Americans trapped at home eating beans and worrying about finances.

Personally I think all this is going to be a big boom for golf. One, it will probably be the first sport back on TV. People are craving stuff. Since golf can be done safely, golf will boom. And people will play as it is one of the few options available. Now just need more courses open to handle the uptick.

I think in general you are not going to be hearing anyone other than the media complaining about "millionaires" playing for millions. People are just craving for anything that is not a repeat, especially live sports. Hell, look at the numbers iRacing is getting, and that is just a video game being played live.

My only issue is the Tour likely using a shit load of COVID-19 test kits prior to each event. Test every player, caddie, official, announcer and camera people. If everyone is being tested that should be tested prior to June, then have at it. Otherwise, they are using medical resources that should be used elsewhere.

You guys are probably right. But I am just not convinced it's going to be all champagne and roses and whatever. If there was a PGA TOUR stock, I doubt I'd be buying at this moment. There will be no spectators to provide bababooey that visceral human response we are all used to. And the announcing crew is inept at handling grown-up situations let's face it. Shit's going to be awkward for a while. Now that viewers at home have gained a more acute sense of what is important and what's not, is it really going to be so wonderful to reunite with the likes of Koepka, DeChambeau, Webb Simpson, Patrick Reid et al? Is my question to you. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe those wonderful personalities really are the answer to many of our woes. I do not know, is all I am saying.

Well, watching Bryson DeChambeau might be slightly more interesting than marble racing. Admittedly, marble racing has a lot more action than Bryson's play.

See this is what I'm talking about. Maybe in our desolation we forget a lot of the shitty stuff. But golf on TV is not all Tiger and fist pumps. In reality it is a lot of stagnant action on the screen, featuring a bunch of people we don't care about, annotated with a bunch of recursive commentary.

Don't get me wrong here, I am still interested in the major championships and Tiger and stuff. But the regular day to day PGA TOUR product, I don't know that I'll necessarily be rushing back, that absence makes the heart grow fonder or whatever.

Q: Do you know what's going to be really satisfying for me when watching the pros play without fans?

A: Seeing all the penalties they rack up when there is no one out there to find their balls for them. :o

Welcome to our world MF'ers! :fu

To some extent. Yes, they may be able to find out approximately where a ball went into the woods or high crap from the cameras, but finding it will be more of a challenge now. Missing the hundreds of pairs of eyes they might normally have will surely make things much more costly for the players. They only get three minutes now. 15 or 20 people looking for three minutes gives them a much better chance than just those in their group alone. And that's assuming their partners and caddies pitch in.

Hell, if I could have just ONE fan standing out there to help, I'd save strokes. We all would. How many times have you hit a perfectly good shot, yet could not find the ball when you got to where you think it ended up? In a tournament, that's typically at least two extra strokes. I am looking forward to watching the pros have to play with little to no outside help, like we generally have to do. It's only fair, right? It's good for them to lose a little entitlement. Now, if there were no rakes and they had to play the bunkers from the same lies and conditions we often find, that would really be fun! :yess

A bigger issue is going to be all the times when they usually get bailed out by hitting fans or a grandstand. Always drives me crazy. Hit it so wide the grandstand blocks you but you get a free drop.

I'm watching the Rory-Dustin-Rickie-other guy match. So far the most interesting spectacle was Dustin Johnson spitting on a towel and using it to clean his club. Disgusting behavior. :puke

I tuned in a little late. There's no way I'm going to sit through some painful, awkward, fake-somber intro featuring Dan Hicks pontificating about how the world has changed and how tough and resilient we all are and how wonderful golf is and how much we have missed these wondrous golf pros.
