    The Golf Thread

    Well there are a few threads kicking about the sports forum about playing golf but none that I can find about the Professional game which this week finds itself at Royal Birkdale for the Open.

    After Tiger Woods miraculous win during the U.S Open he is now out for at least the rest of the season and while its going to be interesting to see if he will be able to get back to his best there are still two majors and the Ryder Cup to be played without the world number one.

    There was a thread in the Asylum for the Masters so there is interest out there for Golf and I know that Slare is a keen player and watcher so without Tiger who is everybody backing for this years open?

    Ladbrokes have Sergio Garcia as the favourite with odds of 12/1 and perhaps surprisingly Els in second with odds of 16/1. Westwood is regarded as Britain's best hopeful at 20/1 alongside Phil Mickleson, and last years champion Harrington is 25/1 though he has picked up a wrist injury and is a doubt. Justin Rose, who burst on to the scene the last time the Open was played at Birkdale, finishing 4th as an amateur, could be a good shout with odds of 33/1. For an outside bet then Stenson may be a good shout with odds of 66/1 and if you still have any faith left for the big man, Monty is 100/1.

    I'll be rooting for Phil, as I always do, but I wouldn't put money on him.

    If I were going to place a bet on one player, it'd probably be Justin Rose.

    I'm a Phil fan too, but yeah don't look for him to do much. He just never seems to do too well at the British.

    I'm thinking somebody like an Adam Scott or Sergio is ready to break through. Harrington and Jimenez will probably also be right there. Or some total no-name, the next Ben Curtis or Todd Hamilton will come out of nowhere and win only to never be heard from again.

    Scott is my second choice to win, behind Rose.

    But, yeah, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it's somebody I've never heard of before.

    You can see why the Yanks absolutely hate the British Open. Absolutely no protection out there today for them.

    Good first few day. Loving seeing Norman at the top of the leaderboard, along with a lot of players who are more imagination and finesse and less RAAAR HIT IT HARD.
    Good stuff.

    Got 4 quid on McDowell each way, £2 on Goosen, Poulter and Westwood, so its looking no bad no bad.

    I've enjoyed the first two days and cant wait to sit down and relax on the Sunday to watch the final round. Tomorrow should be interesting to see who moves into place to challenge for the jug as it's still anyones to win. Villegas shot a 65, -5 today and if someone shoots that tomorrow then they are obviously going to be in with a great chance of winning it.

    There were 12 rounds under par today and a further 11 made par today so the course can be played, Birkdale is not about launching monster drives down wide fairways, a lot of the time its just about taking out an iron and making sure your ball lands anywhere on that fairway. As long as your first shot lands on the fairway then it gives you the chance to hit the green and maybe pick up a birdie or two as you go round.

    I don't even want to speculate who I think will win it, its a choice of really anyone from Choi down to +5, I would like to see a European win it, break the duck of never winning the Open at Birkdale, it's links golf for god sake, we should be winning it!

    This is exciting stuff.

    Poulter is the only man left that I have money on, and he is looking good.

    But brilliant stuff.

    What a day. Gotta feel bad for Sergio, but Harrington is just on top of his game right now. So he's won 3 of the last 6 majors... LEGEND.

    Had a bet on for Garcia to win and Harrington to finish in the top 4 so going up the last few holes I was able to sit back and enjoy it knowing I was getting some money out of it. That said I am a Harrington fan so I was glad he won.

    Two rounds of 66 to finish it off was just great golf, he has truly came into his own the past couple of years and credit to him for that, winner of the last two majors, can he hold the 'grand slam' that Tiger done a few years ago. Speaking of Tiger, not really missed eh?

    The Ryder Cup is the most entertaining event in Golf. The match play/team format makes things a lot more fun. Yesterday had some especially great matches and comebacks.

    Anyone?

    It's tough to disagree. What makes it even more interesting is that the american team is not the favorite anymore. When Ben Curtis is able to make your team, you know you're in trouble.

    Anyone else agree that Tiger not being there makes it a better spectacle for the rest of them? Nobody there is hogging the spotlight and there's no clear favourite to win the whole thing.

    Still reckon Europe will do it in the singles, as long as they get there within a couple of points.

    Fair play to the Americans. Weekley, Perry and Kim were pretty phenomenal, especially the latter. Although, Garcia hardly did himself any favours by allowing himself to be caught up in mind games.

    I can understand Faldo's tactics in stacking the last four rounds, hoping they'd see the US off at the end...but Hansen and Casey lost it in the final couple of holes and that was it. If they'd held their own, or had Casey win won his round, it would have gone down to the wire and I would have definitely fancied Europe's chances.

    Congratulations to USA, anyway. Some cracking golf.

    I am going to a rather decent course tomorrow as an alternative to working. I believe I have successfully tricked Miotch in to calling in sick and coming with me as well. Should be a glorious day of beer drinking, cigar smoking, and Quintuple Bogeys.

    The putt he sunk on 18 was no gimme either. He's pretty much automatic in those situations.

    Really tough loss for Perry. Cabrera hung in there all day and got some lucky breaks at the end. After watching Perry go bogey-bogey to let him and Campbell back in, he proceeds to put his drive in the woods on the first playoff hole, gets an incredibly lucky bounce off a tree on his second shot, and gets up and down to save par. Perry fucks up his approach shot on the next hole and it's over. Unbelievable.

    I hate to say it, but for Perry to make bogey on three of his last four holes after going 22 holes without one is a pretty massive choke.

    I wouldn't go that far. You gotta remember Norman was known as a great golfer before his immense 96 collapse at Augusta. Until this weekend, I could not pick Kenny Perry out of a two person lineup.

    Not to mention the fact that Perry would have been the oldest person to win a major, ever.

    Tiger and Phil playing like shit down the stretch was disappointing, but man did they put on a show throughout most of the day.

    If Phil and Tiger had both made their eagle putts, it would have been on every Masters or Major video package for the rest of time. Even though neither finished strong, this was one of my favorite final rounds I've ever seen. Fantastic stuff.

    Am I the only one tired of hearing "get in the hole!" everytime someone putts? I mean it was barely funny 15 years ago, and it still isn't now. Especially after every other idiot yells it during every single tournament.

    Hearing people yell it when guys are 400 yards away and laying up is more bothersome to me...

    I think it started when Tiger went pro and started dominating. It doesn't bother me but I know what you mean, it's very repetitive and unoriginal.

    When I first started getting into golf, I thought it was funny, and I actually yelled it once for John Daly when I went to the St. Jude Classic a few years back...when I was about 11. It's a minor annoyance, but it doesn't really detract from the play for me.

    In a typical round I will have 4 or 5 Hole in 1's, 3-4 Eagles and the rest birdies. I think I accidentally made 1 par in my last round. Off day.

    I wasn't lying about accidentally getting 1 par last time out.


    Lolz aside I did hit the most gratifying shot of my life a few weeks ago when I chipped in for birdie from about 50 yards out. Probably will never do that again.

    Anyone been watching the Buick? Tiger is kicking ass, and the Michigan gallery is going crazy cuz GM is dropping the sponsorship so this is probably the last year. The crowd at 17 is chanting shit relentlessly.

    Tiger will come back and win. The whole fiasco with his wife was clearly all a planned drama to help boost ratings for the Masters.

    I find myself fairly engaged in the action again this year. I am not a huge fan of watching golf, but there is a magic about Augusta that completely draws me in. Really glad to see Freddy with the solid start.

    lol @ Tiger having a 69.

    Phil won. That was an amazing round he had yesterday. Him hugging Amy is the top Masters moment I have been alive to see.

    Ok, so if someone can explain this to me I'll appreciate it.

    I run across so many people who are fans of Tiger Woods and their justification for it is that "he's the best" or "he's so good," which is fair enough in its own right. The problem I have with that is that many of those same people hate the New York Yankees with a passion and hate the LA Lakers with a passion, teams who arguably are, at least right now or based on last years results, "the best" in their respective sports.

    Even more annoying to me is that many of the reasons these people give me for hating the Lakers and Yankees are so trivial. Things like "Kobe's such a jerk" or "I just don't like how the Yankees try to buy a championship every year." Trivial or not it is still a reason I suppose, but the absolute killer for me is that ever since we found out Tiger is a complete sleaze as far as his romantic life is concerned, these same people, seem to root for him more now.

    Can anybody explain this?

    Yankees have a huge payroll, Tiger is just one person.

    As far as the Lakers, I have no clue. I don't like any of the three and I hope Phil wins and Tiger falters.

    Comparing a team sport to an individual sport is apples and oranges. In team sports everyone roots for their home team. People who root for the Yankees and Lakers were either born in or live in the NY or LA area, or had parents who are fans. Almost everyone else will be neutral to them at best. Then there's the jealousy factor. No one wants to see a dynasty unless their own team is doing it. Dynasty teams in all American sports are usually disliked by the the masses, or at least by the hardcore fans of other teams.

    In golf there are no home teams so people tend to root for whoever is fun to watch, and obviously Tiger has been not only the best but also the most exciting player in golf since 1997. When he's playing and contending, chances are a lot better that you'll see something amazing and memorable, something that will be replayed 20 years from now. People want to watch history being made, and with Tiger they have the chance to watch the guy who will likely end up as the greatest player of all time. The jealousy factor doesn't come into play because no one is thinking "man I wish my guy was winning instead". Tiger is your guy, for most people at least.

    A better comparison would be Michael Jordan.

    Today's final round should be a fun watch. It's also pretty cool because it's on the west coast so the leaders don't tee off until after 6 eastern yank time. I really don't recall the last time there were tee times that late.

    Johnson just threw that away... he could've shot a 76 (+5) and he still would've gotten the win.

    That 2nd hole for him was dreadful and inexcusable.

    That's a good segue into the fact that Rory Mcilroy shot -9 at the Open today to lead all scores. Damn son.

    Rory definitely deserves to win if he can keep that up, especially all of the stuff being said about the 17th hole being a total bitch of a hole.

    Rory lost it for himself, if he didn't shoot that 80 and would've shot even at least he would've been the talk of the town. Good for Louis though.

    ended up at 1 under though, so he's not as much in contention as he was then.

    I'd love to see Watson win, seems like a good guy.

    Really quite disappointed a the outcome.

    The whole sand trap issue drives me nuts considering that people were walking into it all week. Just a shame for Johnson really.

    I was pulling for Bubba, but after his second shot on 18 it was all over, I have no idea why he went for the green.

    Phil and Dustin vs. Westwood and Kaymer.

    Although I know Tiger is American, I would love to see Rory beat the piss out of him in a match.

    Well my one day ticket for the Deutche Bank was $50. This would have to be more, so my guess is 75-100.

    Try multiplying that by about 3 or 4 then youll have a ballpark figure.

    I absolutely hate Ian Poulter but for 3 days every couple of years he is an absolute legend.

    Pavin probably regrets picking Tiger now.

    Could you imagine Anthony Kim vs. Rory McIlroy? That excites me.

    How much use do these fans think that they are going to get out of all of those EU flags that they've bought?!

    Can't believe 'we' won after losing three sessions out of four! Good stuff.

    What? He won 4 points out of 5 and was 10 under through 14 holes today you bloody mentalist.

    Even If he did pick Kim, your dream match had very little chance of happening because they cant see each others order of play.

    Mental post mate, absolutely mental. Have a sit down and a good think about that.

    He also got straight up destroyed as well along with Stricker. Sure, he won a couple of times, but that loss was the beginning of European momentum that ultimately led to their win. Not was it a loss, but it was domination.

    How about you go into your corner and don't come back?

    Tiger won 3 of his 4 matches including his one-on-one. I'm sure Pavin is very happy he picked him.
