Maybe allow our 8 figure heroes to take chances. Saturday ainít a NBA third quarter.


Note: The shot doesnít make strategic sense for people who swing like us.

That shot was scary by Jordan, especially overhead drone which showed he was less than a foot from death. Who knows how your balance gets shifted after hitting a shot, or maybe there is a rock in the ground for his divot and throws him off. Fun to watch, but scary at the same time. IIRC that was the hole where Jordan was bitching at his caddie for a misclub a couple years back. To Grellar's credit he didn't give his boss a shove.


There is zero chance I could have hit that shot. I get pretty severe vertigo when looking over a cliff or out of a high building.

I think that it has been proven that the great multiple major winners win most tournaments on Saturday. Tiger and Nicklaus to name a couple.

I'm sure that you have hit that shot on 8 from a perfect lie. Add a penalty stroke and double enters the equation.

He made a par that gave him the momentum to put himself in position for a win. A bogey there and he isnít ever in the mix. A drop would have been a mental retreat.
Donít let woke culture ruin one of the great shots in golf. You canít be expected to carry a fence on that shot. The easiest solution is to eliminate the penalty for water hazards. Someone, and Iím sure have in the past, will drown. Or worse yet, fall in a sand trap and have a small kernel of sand go down your shorts. Enough friction and sweat and your ding dong might fall off.


I vote we send him and a large bucket out there to show us how... let the sea lions lick what's left off the rocks.

A fall would make him statue worthy. His career isnít there yet.

We just came off a fantastic Australian Open where the favorite was disqualified for something similar. A personal choice full of subjective danger. Iím glad Spieth took the shot.

It means that during the regular season players rest their legs in the third quarter. Or maybe I was wrong. They are emulating Nicklaus and playing just hard enough to be in a position to win. My apologies.

There was literally nothing for him to gain by taking that stroke

Sure there was: increased odds of a birdie or par, decreased odds of a bogey or higher.

Didn't want to start a new thread on this topic, but here in Utah this guy apparently had no clue what he was messing with.  Very lucky!  Its been a record snow pack this year and the high elevation stuff has just started to melt...
