Are they going to allow fans at Muirfield Village in a few weeks?

Yeah. Everything I read and saw here on the news is yes. I think it will be reduced, but fans will be allowed.

I feel like an idiot for not grabbing Rory at 24-1 the week before he won Quail Hallow. Now of course he’s the favorite at like 10-1 depending on where you look.

I like Bryson.  I said on here once that I thought he was on the juice.  That wasn't fair.  Maybe he is, I don't know.  But I oughtta give him the same presumption everyone else gets.  I've read a bit about him and I respect his different approach.  He seems to gear up well for these majors and it sounds like Quail sets up well for him.

FYI, this isn’t at Quail. But it’s the longest course in major history, so should set up well for Bryson. Pete Dye design, and on the ocean (hence, The Ocean Course lol). I think Quail is a comparison course, though.

I haven’t looked at layouts. Wonder how many holes are forced layups off the tee with water?

I knew that, I don't know why I typed Quail.

I'm probably heading in the direction of the more seasoned links players, so I'll probably have a majority of Europeans in the mix of 6.  Will keep an eye on the forecast as well to see how much wind is expected.

1 guy from each of six tiers (based on world rankings); I went  with:


1) - Rahm, Fitzpatrick, Fleetwood, Leishman, Rose, Wiesberger

2) - McIlroy, Hovland, Niemann, Connors, Lowry, Grillo


At least 4 of the six must make the cut to have a winnable entry; total of best 4 total scores. 


(Can edit up until the first tee off)

Pretty sweet day. Saw Darius Rucker and our governor. Tried to add a picture but I suck at it. Hope it looks good on TV.

I ended up subbing in MacIntyre for Lowry ............... regretting that thus far.  Crazy first two days so far.

Some relatives on my wife’s side have a house down there and they messaged us that they were in SC and can’t make it to a birthday party we’re having tomorrow.  I knew they had to be at the tournament and my wife showed me some snaps her cousin took from yesterday, definitely looks awesome.

Glad Phil came back a little so that today can hopefully have some drama.

Phil, on Sunday, of a Major...drama is guaranteed! I can only hope for Phil to have a 1 shot lead heading to 18 over Brooks.

Course is wearing on everyone. Impressive how the designers and course management folks of the PGA can make a course fair but mentally grueling on everyone.


Phil’s gonna do it. Louis can’t quit getting beat right.
