Played 9 holes with my over 75 age group today. We play a scramble. For nine, we shot 4 under in 102 F heat. Man it was hot.

Too ashamed to put out numbers, but my back nine was 15 shots fewer than my first nine. I hate golf.

Jekyll and Hyde round today... back nine was 10 strokes more than front nine.

Played a new course yesterday in 95 degree heat with a dozen of our Thursday group. Hilly course, many blind dog legs, elevated greens with enough water to make the course interesting. Two bottles of liquid IV hydration fluid and shot a 46 on the front, 41 on the back. Proof positive I play better when I have no idea where the hole and pins are located. Such a goofy but lovely game.

I played yesterday. 37 on the front 9 (par 33) then a par on the par 3 - 10th. +4 after 10 holes. Then fell apart and shot 49 on the back.

After complaining about several inconsistent rounds, 37-44-83 and 37-41-81, Friday I was 40-40-80 - all same course. No idea why. While big front v back differentials are annoying, I’d rather break 40 on at least one nine than 40-40-80. Dumb game - same time tomorrow.

Amazing, money out of thin air. Imagine that. I hope more pga players bail after the season.

The pga is like an employer who is underpaying their employees so people have to leave current job for another to get a pay increase. Sad.

In an updated news release the PGA some money will come from sponsors and some "from their own funds". They did not provide any numbers so they are not ready for transparency at this point. Transparency in numbers was one thing some of the players have been asking for.



The first USA based competition is this weekend.Should be interesting. It can be streamed for free on youtube.

Regarding the golfers that played in the first LIV tournament but are not included in the second tournament, are they now prohibited from playing in PGA tournaments going forward?

good question, I had never heard of any of them. Probably Korn Ferry players....

And as more DP World and OLD PGA players go running for money and time, because my body just isn't healing as quickly ( Poor Brooksy ;-(( ) And i need more time with family etc etc.... I'll assume more of the no names will be pushed out, then what for them? Become a golf course pro/teacher?

I doubt any of those players were members of the PGA Tour so they wouldn't be qualified to play in PGA Tournaments even if they didn't play in any LIV events. I haven't seen anything that would stop them from earning their way on the PGA Tour but would have to do it through the Korn Ferry Tour, not an easy road. There have been rumors of lifetime bans for current PGA Tour players that go to LIV but haven't seen anything official yet.

No, they got booted to make room for the PGA players who defected after the London tournament, e.g. Koepka, DeChambeau, Ancer, Wolff, Ortiz, etc. I'm sure the 8 who are gone would have liked to make another $125K or whatever last place pays.

Just returned from a 5 week trip (honeymoon actually) to the Med. Didn’t touch a club or watch any golf for 5 wks. First round yesterday started great (par, par) but, it was a bit inconsistent from there; shot 85. Happy to be playing again; also happy I missed all the PGA/LIV posts. Oh yea…had a fantastic honeymoon!

After Phil's interview with Alan Shipnuck became news, Rory said that being on the Player Advisory Committee, he has full access to the balance sheet of PGA Tour and the money paid to the golfers are in line with other sports.

It’s one confounding round after another…

Last Friday I birdied #1, #2 and #3 - I don’t think I’ve ever had 3 straight, much less the first three.

Then 11 over for the next 15 holes, despite another birdie, for an 80.

Stupid game, “same time tomorrow.”

Three rounds of golf over the 4th holiday and finished off yesterday's round parring the last eight holes.

Just read that the pga tour has 23 Saudi sponsors. This should be brought up in interviews with the commissioner. Funny how they have no issue taking Saudi money when it benefits them. Bunch of hypocrites.
