    In all seriousness, I do hope he learns to better control his anger because he is very talented.

    When I first started playing the game I had an old canvas golf bag that was older than myself. I'm one of six and money was tight but on my 17th birthday my mom sacrificed and bought me a new great carry bag. Less than 2 weeks later, after a big drive, I hit a fat shot short of the green. I had a bad temper and tossed the club and after a few a helicopter spins the club hit the bottom of the bag and created a big hole in the bottom. Thankfully I worked at the course and the greenskeeper was able to create a new bottom. From that day on I have never thrown a club. I curse a lot on the course but learned the important lesson to get ready for the next shot. My mom never found out and my bad temper as a youth was over. Maybe one of my best life lessons.

    I have had my share of blowouts on the course. I too learned quickly not to throw clubs in anger. I had a brand new driver and after a couple of bad drives I had said this POS is no better than my old one and helicoptered it up the fairway and broke the shaft. That was 30 years ago, and I have never thrown a club again.

    As for my temper, I am ashamed for some of the things I have said in the last 35 years on course. When I watch Rahm's behavior I feel sorry because I know what he is feeling. Gotta dial it back and relax like @RUBigJ on course. I can honestly say I have played many hundreds of rounds with him and NEVER ONCE seen him curse or behave badly. Not once... a true gentle giant.

    I’ve got 7 rounds in this year. I have yet to see a ball hit the pin and bounce out. I have yet to hear of a person say they hit the ball that would have went in and it bounced out. Played in an 18 hole pR 3 tournament yesterday. Pins were in on 90% of all putts all lengths.

    Leaving pins in will be the new norm very shortly. The stated concerns are just not showing up.

    When can they change the rule back? The USGA admitted that they were not even thinking about competitive advantage, only pace of play. Idiots.

    What’s the advantage? It’s optional for the player. Scoring hasn’t been impacted. I did blame the rule when I left my par put short by 5 ft. Only if that pin was out.....

    Bryson DeChambeau smokes the field in Dubai Desert Classic. Wins by 7, sets tournament record. His first win outside the US.

    Once again we have to deal with the Tiger Woods media hype/ BS / whatever you want to call it. Woods is currently tied for 44th place, 13 strokes behind Justin Rose. What does Yahoo Sports have in their headline.

    "Live Leaderboard: Tiger and field try to catch Rose in final round of Farmer's"

    I can't take the Tiger drool anymore. They really need to do better.

    It's all about the clicks. And even the haters , like you, click the articles.
    He's the biggest name ever to play the game, the straw that stirs the drink, the guy that makes TV ratings quadruple. What do you expect the marketing guys to do? Write about Wun Hung Lo from S Korea?

    Adam Scott or Justin Rose (always get them confused) kept the pin in on a 1'10" putt. Missed it.

    I still like hearing the ball rolling around that tin cup. With the pin, sometimes the ball just gets wedged in, complete silence, no gratifying sound of the ball dropping.

    Scott, he's a bit of a head case between keeping pin in all the time now and anchoring the putter before it became illegal.

    It’s disengenous - he’s not remotely in contention. It’s no different then the political news with Trump. “Trump farted in church today, Democrats revolt.”

    1. Overall a pretty chipper media session. A back-nine 31 will help that cause. Now it’s two weeks off before getting back after it at Riv.

    1. Because Tracker was curious, Tiger's shirt color is listed as "Gym Red/Pure" on the Nike web site. Guess that settles it.

    World #1 Justin Rose wins by 2 over Adam Scott.

    What a great two weeks for Talor Gooch who is not exempt this season and is playing on limited status (139th last year). He finished 4th last week to get into this week's tournament and then finished 3rd this week. He is now in the field next week at the Waste Management.

    In the latest odds Rose has passed Tiger and now the Masters favorite at 12-1. Tiger tied for 2nd at 14-1 with a number of players including Spieth. I haven't decided who I'm going with. I won with Sergio in '17 and had a T15 with Casey's weekend move in '18.

    Can you bet golf futures at MP? Never been there.

    Thanks. I'm thinking I'd like to go in person just to check it out. Never been to Vegas and haven't been to a casino in a decade. Just won't bring a lot of cash with me lol.

    great call on Sergio in 2017. I thought he had a solid 0.00000% chance winning a major.

    And keep saying you're not a hater...we all know better.
    Anyway Varner's putt for birdie on 16 was awesome, the crowd loved it and he gives them the dab to celebrate. Awesome stuff
