I wasn't surprised by a blow up hole but I thought it would be a double-bogey and not a quad-bogie. I'm guessing that it has been a long, long time since Jordan has had a quad-bogie in competition. If it had been a double then he still would have lost but it certainly would have been more interesting.

Norman's implosion was much more painful to watch as it was over the course of the entire round rather than on a three holes.

But let's give Willett some credit too... he had a stellar final round. When you're in the hunt and shoot the best round of the day in they final round you frequently win.

Yeah that was sad, I think because it was his best chance. Jordan won last year, so hard to feel too bad.

Willett played great. I don't know about you guys but Speith's pre-shot got really tough to watch after about the 15th hole.

Yes.....he's a little too slow. And all the constant chatter with is caddie before and after a shot is a little annoying. I like Spieth and hope he wins another major, but he does need to speed up a bit.

+1 but I play with a couple people who have obnoxious pre-shot routines so it doesn't bother me too much. What is interesting is that when he is swinging back and forth loosening up his caddy was frequently very close to where he was swinging... uncomfortably close to me.

I actually like hearing the chatter between him and his caddy and what they are talking about but I can't really hear enough to understand. I wish that they had not cut away from the discussion he was having with the rules official when he was impeded by the plastic cover on that par 5 hole on the back nine. He was starting to say that he wanted to make absolutely sure that whatever relief he was taking was legal and then they cut away from the conversation as that would have been interesting to listen in on.
