I just heard them mention that Bernhard Langer played in his first major with someone (Sarazen) who was born in 1902. Now Bernhard is playing in a major with someone born in 2002!
Have you seen Sandy Lyle's look this year? I have to say I never have seen suspenders on a golf course, certainly not in professional golf. I suppose in the old days of Bagger Vance it could have been becoming. Will have to see dress codes at private clubs now to see if they mention you must wear a belt (not suspenders in lieu of).
Magnificent score and achievement by Bernard Langer and let's not forget Larry Mize too. Sandy Lyle even. I bet they are tired though ... some of the more elderly former champions apparently stop playing because of the severity of the terrain. Kind of a shame.
Yeah, I can't recall seeing the 14th green from that angle on TV before. Very cool! From where Oosthuizen was putting the cup location appeared to be higher than the top of his head when standing completely upright. You can't appreciate the steepness of that green when all you see is the camera angle from behind it.On a separate note, who is still liking their pic's pre-tournament and has your opinion changed of both the winner and score? I still like Brooks to win it and see him making a move today. I also like Rahm's chances as well, but I am going to stick with Brooks. That said, I don't think -15 is going to win it. With the course finally starting to dry out and get firmer I can see the winning score at - 12 or -13. Should be fun to watching these guys get around a course playing differently from yesterday and Thursday.
No funnel pin on 16 this year! I can't recall seeing it on the back right shelf on Sunday in a long time.
Watching featured groups streaming this morning. Michael Breed is providing excellent commentary on the course and the camera work is amazing. Without the "patrons" the entire course, its contours, and lay-out are visible and really breathtaking.
Tiger showed the big valentine today after making 10 on number twelve. He nearly ran the table from there to the house making 5 birdies in his final six holes.
