    Brendon Todd was thinking about quitting golf 1.5 years ago and now he has more wins than Tony Finau in the last 12 months…and he always shows up to big events it seems like.

    Scott with nearly the 8th hole out eagle for this tournament.

  • Baysman

    The amount of fairways Tony Finau misses is actually incredible for such a good golfer. If only he could hit more, he’d be so much more competitive

  • JimKronlund

    What does “care” even mean as tangible or actionable info?
    Firstly, Scott did not play earlier because of Covid. Nothing to do with the word “care”.
    The only thing they “care” about is the next shot. They know where they are in standings and only focus on the next shot.
    They understand the only thing they can control is their next shot.
    Every higher position in this tournament means substantially more money. I assure you they “care” about that.
    You talk like “caring” is something that is tangible and is an actionable psychological component in a golfers mind that is a link between whether they play better or not.

    I was looking at some stats. I think the stats are messed up because I see that

    Finau has gained strokes OTT according to data-golf…(this includes the current round).

    How does someone who’s mised like the majority of fairways this tournament gain strokes OTT?

    Well hopefully you are right and he makes some putts today haha.

    I just figured if he cared as much as others, he wouldn’t have skipped half of the season including guaranteed WGC events which give you Fed Ex points and also guaranteed money for being no-cut. I remember Berger showed up, hit 1 shot, and WD just to collect that paycheck a few years ago.

    I’ll need him, Cantlay, and Hideki to all get top 5. That would be ideal.

    The whole Covid thing got to Adam Scott. He went home to Australia when the PGA shut down. International travel and the quarantine travel restrictions got to him. Now that he’s here and playing, I’m sure he cares.

    I never said he didn’t care…I just said it’s not as important to him as a Joaquin Niemann…I also own a ton of Adam Scott (possibly more than anyone here) since that part is neglible anyways because as I said, his game is suited for this course T2G. I was just merely pointing out something, like thinking out loud.

    Of course EVERY GOLFER cares to do well (I said this like so many times in my posts but it seems like every single person skipped it). I just said it’s not as important for him to make the Tour Championship as a Joaquin Niemann. It’s like people read my post and skipped all the other details.

    You can say this season was the virus. But he was still the latest one to return. And it’s not this season. He’s been skipping WGC events for a long time. Check out the link.

    He even said that himself. Those are his quotes. He doesn’t care about the guaranteed paychecks or the Fed Ex cup points. He says others play for the money but for him, it doesn’t mean as much anymore (probably since he’s older and has a family). I think it’s fair to say Webb Simpson didn’t care this week to play because he actually skipped it right?

  • Baysman

    Rory smh.

  • Getty33

    Cantlay 4 straight drives into the right rough. At what point do you decide you have to make a tweak to your swing or stance to fix the problem? Stubborn bastard.

  • Awon1

    Xander wtf.

  • Awon1

    Berger has a BOFR and at this rate might have more fantasy points than Xander if Xander continues to suck next 2 days. They were like a similar price. Not that either one will be in any winning lineup though.

  • Awon1

    I’m 100% positive that Marc Leishman does not care. He knows his game is screwed but he has to keep playing to collect a paycheck. He’ll play next week too so it’s a 29 man pool.

  • me_mike84

    common xander. what the hell are you doing out there

  • JIB7

    Xander streak!

    Of bogeys.

  • Awon1

    I’m starting to believe Xander also doesn’t care.

  • Awon1

    I can never figure out this Matthew Fitzpatrick kid. What courses is he good at? I thought it was short courses but this one is long.

  • Baysman

    Tony Finau, where the heck was that par 3 tee shot going?

  • Awon1

    Wow Rory banged that birdie in. Looks like he was pissed about those other misses.

  • Baysman

    Finau is terrible today. Taking himself right out of contention fairly quickly.

    Made a sick par though just now.

    xander is really pissing me off

    Actually I just believe now.

    Hovland and Xander crushing my 4 day teams.

    @Baysman for what it’s worth Finau has a solid look for birdie from 15 feet. Probably hard to get it closer than that on this course.
