    I have been reading last years threads on golf tourneys, I get sick enjoyment from the whole experience. pretty much a waist of time and its Evelyn Wood spead reading. It helps me from not commenting on everything I read in this years thread. :)

    I got to say for the long time posters that are still here, Definitly Miami …. is th3goat84. LOL. looks like shit smells like shit, dont want to taste it but there it is.

    thought I would toss some conspiracy his way.

    edit ….sorry, more politically correct way is .. looks like a duck quacks like a duck

    Well I won’t argue with your personal assessment of Na’s character…….but if you haven’t looked at the video you really should to fully understand my assessment of the conditions of the rough.

    Rory just said n an interview that he thinks the score will be -10 to -12 so I’ll take his word

    BIF, Any comment on…say from Wade Ornsby @ $6.4 down to the bottom? That is 40 golfers about 25% of the field. Some will make the cut and somebody down there will top 20?

    Rahm going pull a spanish rookie Rant… Take off shoe …

  • superstars92

    Yea no one is saying Rahm is a bad golfer. He’s one of the most talented golfers in the world. However, everyone knows he’s got a serious temper and lacks mental toughness (which I am sure he will eventually work on and correct), and that’s all we are saying. You can read about the article about Rahm here on Golf Digest: http://www.golfdigest.com/story/can-this-jon-rahm-win-the-us-open that came out a few days ago. He (and his coaches) all admit (in that article, just ctrl + find “anger”), he’s got a serious temper in that article, and obviously that can really hurt him as you saw multiple times this year with his bogey streaks/meltdowns.

    He hit a somewhat bad 3rd shot on a par 5, but he still had a 12-15 footer for birdie, and he got super mad here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3fRza4qttI.

    Of course, when he’s on, he’s one of the best golfers in the world. There was that NBA article about hot hand I read on ESPN. I can tell you there definitely is a “hot or cold” hand in golf. All you need to do is see Jon Rahm.

    Rickie is literally the polar opposite of Rahm. He’s super nice and does not have a temper. Now, I am not saying that’s good either (sometimes, it’s good to have an edge, as long as it’s not affecting your game negatively). However, Rickie is like super chill and loves to have crowd engagement. He even brought a Packers bag for the US Open, probably to win over more fans.

    Both are pretty talented golfers nevertheless.

    Every stat, every regular indicator I trust tells me Wesley Bryan is a bad pick… so why does my gut tell me that I should?

    trust your gut. you are going to be right or wrong with every pick so might as well trust your gut

    Any good Euro course comps to Erin Hills? I’m loving a couple of sleeper Euro guys but want to do course comps on them. Thanks in advance !

  • manoffewwords

    I said last week that I will not play Scott this week because of his putting. I lied. This course is perfect for his accuracy with irons and length off tee. I will just close my eyes when he putts. I believe if he putts decently he is your champion. Rory second.

    W Bryan is a guaranteed MC here. Don’t do it.

    Last time it went that low was when he won in 2011 with -16 by 8 strokes. Nothing -10 or lower since. I think the USGA was embarrassed by that low a score and will never let it go that low again. This Open is the USGA test to all golfers and expects even par to be the exception. I think Rory is blowing smoke out his you know what. If the USGA leaves the rough like the video, it will be carnage for the average pro. Let’s talk again Sunday, ok?

    The tournaments on DK are horrible this week. Unless you can afford to spend hundreds in entry fees the average Joe has no chance this week. All the tournaments are huge and/or 50/70/150 max entries. I like to play GPPs but there is literally one $5 single entry tournament. Even the 3 entry max Hybrid this week is 7900 people…it’s usually 2-3000.

    Low ball flight, great putter and good SS… Ate up the Web last year and won right away out in the PGA besides winning over 2M already… Maybe no links skills, but he can play when he wants too… Can be a flier and like you write, could MC…Stranger things have happened and his price will chase many away…
    4th at Riviera behind DJ, Pieters, and ahead of some big names…

    First off Kevin na is a whiny bitch. Second the winds will be no where. Fair ways are prettywide and greens are The best shape compared to opens in past.

    The fescue is getting all the talk prior to the tournament starting. Though the course architects created Erin Hills with the notion that a bunker should play as a hazard. There is 138 bunkers, with a few holes having bunkers in the fairways. If you get it in one of these bunkers you are looking at par at best. On Wednesday night there might be a bit of rain, so that fescue becomes even more tough.

    I’m thinking -6 will be the winning score.

    Did you all know that Ricky Barnes, David Duvall and Phil Michelson were all runner ups to Lucas Glover in the 2009 Open? Glover won by 2 strokes with a -4. Barnes, Duvall? How many roster them these days?

    If the rough doesn’t get mowed due to flack from the participants, I’m thinking par could be the score. And I don’t think the USGA gives a rats ass about what the golfers say. If they hear it’s too tough, they’ll make it tougher. This isn’t a PGA test, it’s a USGA test. Much different than anything else we’ll see all year.
