Hoge shredding the course after barely making the cut. Birdies all over the place.

Dumb question maybe...


How do the players decide what is a gimme and what isn't?


Watching Finau/Meronk right now and announcers just made a comment about not making him putt that...but Meronk proceeded to mark ball and is going to putt it. (he actually just ended up missing the putt)

Meanwhile, Finau, was standing well far away - and I didn't see him say anything.

So how does this work exactly? Lol

If the opposing player concedes the putt, then it is good.  The player getting the concession can have the option of putting it (for practice) if he so desires, I believe, and may say so to the other player.

Playing partner can concede the hole at any time. They can give the other player a put finishing his score on the hole as well. It is "poor form" to putt out a given putt, however. As for the distance, a lot of that will come down to what the match status is. If you need to win a bunch of holes, you probably aren't giving a 4' putt, and opponent shouldn't expect it. Early on, probably they give you that. Its also a cat and mouse game -- dont let them hit those putts early, they may miss them later with nerves. 

The really interesting part is when they miss a putt and immediiately pick up the ball in disgust, but the opponent hasnt had the chance to give it, so by rule, they lose the hole.

How can Will Z be on the tour this long, and still not have a putting coach. He is so fucking terrible.

Been that way for so long. Its cost him so many wins. 

He missed 3 putts inside 4' today. And another like 7 from inside 15'. Got destroyed in Match Play and is eliminated.

Cam Young quite unlucky on #19…had a no shot in edge of bunker and had to chip out. Rory hit virtually same tee shot and got a flat lie right beside the bunker….no issue

And Young nails a shot and somehow gets up and down from a mile away…Rory got a little cute and needs a 12 footer to extend the match

And Scheffler misses the green from 144 and Burns hits a big shot from fairway bunker.


Unbelievable he missed that huge green from 144….even more so than missing the 4 ft putt. Scottie is all of a sudden overthinking and he and Rory will be miserable in the consolation match…..as will NBC
