Young players have a pretty damn fair shot at making the team, captain only picks 2 of the 12 spots.

At the end of the day, when you've got the choice for 2 spots, you're picking Tiger Woods regardless of anything except for health of course. When he stands on the tee box, you've got a better chance than when he's sitting at home.
I certainly hope Tiger can put things together in the next month. Huge tournaments coming up.

Contemplating getting tickets to the Deutsche Bank Tournament for Monday. My dad and uncle go every year on Friday but I'm thinking of surprising my dad and taking him Monday as well.

He's bummed out about not playing until next year so I'm hoping this cheers him up.

A quick update on his ankle injury:

Still not sure what the surgical plan is but it looks like he needs a spacer placed between his fibula and tibia where they meet due to calcification. Lucky it isn't ligament damage. Poor guy.

The DB is such a fun tournament. Definitely going again this year.

Frankly I don't think Woods is any kind of shape to even threaten to win a tournament this year. It's only been 3 months since the back surgery. Even if he's pain free he hasn't had enough tournament play to get the rust off his game. He was God awful last week after missing the cut the week before. I'm willing to bet that when his back was hurting he got into some bad swing habits in an attempt to work around it. I know I did while trying to play softball with an injured back. That can't be corrected over night.

And after reading about his decidedly mixed Ryder Cup record in this thread I think Watson should leave him off. Screw the media this is about having the best team to give the US a shot at winning it.

Great read on club length (driver) and choking up or shorter shaft for accuracy without losing much distance.

As a recipient of the Ouimet Scholarship, I got to caddy in the Red Sox Pro-AM twice which takes place the Tuesday before it starts - Drinkwater tipped me $200 my first year. Wish I could back to those days...

Hopefully they make the course more challenging though, especially for a tournament in the Fedex Cup playoffs. There is just something about seeing -22 repeatedly win it that doesn't do it for me.

There's a lot of innuendo in this very post

I'm sorry but I just had to.

Interesting article indeed

I started doing this in high school, when the Ping G5 came out. Had a longer shaft than normal, so it took awhile to get the hang of. Used to bomb the hell out of it, but wouldn't have much control. Choked up just the slightest, still around 280, but much more consistent.

Still in the bag, love that stick

Yeah...only really so much you can do though, overall its not a hard course at all. Would love to play it

I read more about it that the manufacturers are to blame because you do get a little more swing speed so people get suckered into it.

it helps having a very good teaching pro for a brother. I had developed a rather nasty push which would then usually also slice. Tried all kinds of things to fix it, no real consistent success. Meet up with my brother at a driving range, we both hit a couple balls, he then stands behind me, and watches me hot 3-4.

"Stand closer to the ball" I move 3-4 inches closer...
"Closer" - another 3-4 inches...
"Okay, take a swing" - 5-iron 190 dead straight. That's all i hit for the rest of the bucket, because i was standing so close to the ball i felt like i was going to fall over. My swing also tended to become too upright, which i probably wouldn't have figured out with out broski around. but by the end of the day it felt pretty engrained. Consistent improved results is pretty nice positive feedback though

He's at Northview in Surrey. He pretty much only coaches high level juniors (like 10-16) these days, finds them easier to work with (sometimes i think one of us was adopted)

Maybe Paulina's the problem?

I was decent with my irons, but my woods were all over the place.
About 4 out of 14 drives hit the fairway.

Put my hands directly under my head, moved in closer, took my right hand (i'm a rightie)
and turned it just a bit counter clockwise and I'm driving so much better.
I'm almost at 70% fairway.

Oh, and i got a hole in one, my first 10 days ago.
5 Iron 176 yards on a slight up hill. Raised green so I didn't see it go in.

That is the last drug a golfer should be taking. Pot would help their game a lot better.

Not a huge secret either that #DustinJohnson had affairs with 2 wives of PGA Tour players. One broke up the marriage.

As of 11:34 today, the leaderboard at the Bridgestone looks like:

1. Sergio Garcia -14
2. Rory McIlroy -10
3. Justin Rose -9
4. Keegan Bradley -8

Keegan is the top American and a top 3 here will do wonders for his Ryder chances.

He's 16th and is out of 10th by 284.695 points..

Can Sergio hold on here?
