    Oakland Hills would be a great choice for the 2022 PGA Championship..They just completed a renovation and it was the site of an exciting tournament back in 2008…. I hope that it will get some consideration.

    Maybe the newly Woke PGA Tour will suffer the same as the rest of the Pro Sports leagues by alienating 80 million Americans, or they haven’t thought that part totally thru yet? Time will tell.

      Poor snowflakes! So bu**hurt when their savior loses a golf tourney. If only they were sad about half a million people in the ground…

        Um, the “savior” has no authority over the affairs of individual states. The governors do. Nevermind the poverty and ruined lives they caused with their rules for thee not for me mental illness. The “savior” went to his legal limit and didn’t interfere in state matters. Best to be educated before preaching moral righteousness.

        Enjoy your 5 minutes, Bolshie. You don’t want to know what happens when you try to do what you really want to do to us.

          Imagine thinking someone is a communist just because they don’t like Trump. Quite sad, really.

            Torrey Pines North Course.

            Since the 2017 Farmers, it hasn’t been much easier than the South Course – maybe 1-2 strokes in spite of over 500 yards difference. It is much more playable and capable of being set up hard and fair.

    Maybe by 2022 SF gets a mulligan and hosts fans at my favorite course, The Olympic Club Lakeside.

    Something with narrow fairways lined by densely wooded jungle with undergrowth. Bunkers should be deep and steep. Then you might get a true champion.

      Nobody wants to see a course set up that way and have the winning score be -2. That kills the ratings and makes for bad golf. I remember that one US Open when Retief Goosen won and shot -2. It was painful and boring to watch a bunch of the world’s best golfer struggle so bad because of the baked out greens.

Bryson DeChambeau reveals the problem he has at Augusta National

Published

on

Bryson DeChambeau’s challenge at this year’s Masters tournament got off to a poor start with an opening round of 76 to put Bryson behind the 8-ball going into Friday’s round.

The 27-year-old never looked comfortable all day at Augusta National, and following his opening round, DeChambeau revealed his main issue at the course:

“I need to understand how the ball flies off of downhill slopes into uphill greens, and conversely uphill slopes into downhill greens, and all of the above. We just can’t calculate and adjust the numbers very well, and the wind is pretty tricky out here. The greens are bouncing pretty hard, and that’s what happened.”

Bryson told the media that the issue is only here at Augusta, while confirming that the new driver would stay in the bag for today’s second round.

On what he needs to do to play well here, DeChambeau highlighted every aspect of his game and how he also needs to begin adjusting to the difference in the speed of the practice green to the actual greens at the event.

“You’ve got to have every aspect. You’ve got to iron it well. You’ve got to putt it well. There are some greens that got really, really quick, looked pretty brown. We just couldn’t adjust for it. The practice green is completely different than the golf course, and that was something that I know, but I just didn’t adjust for.”

Abraham Ancer left ‘gutted’ after being assessed 2 stroke penalty at the Masters

Published

on

Abraham Ancer is competing in his second Masters this week and believed he had got himself off to a steady start with a round of 73.

However, 73 soon turned into a round of 75 after Ancer had unknowingly touched the sand before making his third stroke from the greenside bunker on 15.

After signing his scorecard, video evidence was reviewed by the Masters Competition Committee regarding a potential breach of Rule 12.2b (1), which states that “touching sand in a bunker right behind the ball results in a penalty” – and Ancer was handed a two stroke penalty.

On social media, Ancer posted the video of the incident along with the following statement:

“I was just informed that I have been assessed a 2 stroke penalty for unintentionally grazing the sand in my backswing on hole 15. While I’m gutted, I can’t wait to get after it tomorrow.”

Per Jim Hyler Jr., chairman of the Competitions Committee, Ancer was given the penalty as the touching of the sand was visible to the naked eye.
