I liked Bryson at first too and even found a way to get past his very unlikable name, but he found a way to live up to it. Or down to it I guess.

Idk, Patrick Reed is a dickhead, i never liked Spieth because he's too insistent upon himself. Rory was overblown.

I guess I'm kind of blending in the guys that are around 30 now.

Koepka is the dude at the moment.

This is pretty much where I’m at as well with the big names in the younger crowd. I find Justin Thomas grating as well. Out of the popular names I like Koepka, Rickie, DJ and that’s pretty much it. I’m a bigger fan of the “lesser” names like Finau, Woodland, Reavie, etc.

Whether Rory was overblown or not is debatable but I don't think that's his fault. He's an incredibly good dude and entertaining to watch. Koepkas shtick is getting a little old, but I like him. I think this crop is infinitely more fun to watch than anything we have seen in a while. Tiger had Phil, Ernie, Vijay, Duval for a few years and that was kinda it for the most part.

Reed and Bryson are the only ones I don’t like. I like Koepka, Spieth, JT, Rickie, etc

Only other one I’m lukewarm on is Rory just because he gets talked up so much for falling flat on his face often. Not really his fault other people put expectations on him though

Rory had like two starts last season outside of the top ten. He's been incredibly good. Unfortunately he has Tiger as his measuring stick, which is unrealizable

Earlier today I look at tee times on sunday at a certain course and find one for 8:40am in their website. I look again now and it’s not there. But it’s on GolfNow, who is charging the full price of the greens fees and a convenience fee

I don’t understand how the tt disappeared from the course’s site

Courses that use GolfNow have to hand over some tee times exclusively to GN, which charges a fee and takes a cut.

Bubba pumped 2 balls OB off the tee on the par 5 5th and ended up making a 9. Too bad that one wasn't on TV somewhere.

The back 9 of the final round is streaming only. Golf channel didn't even mention it when they ended coverage. Suppose it's not their responsibility but I switched over to cbs for a few minutes before I realized it wasn't coming on and looked around Twitter. Golf really sucks at this stuff sometimes

The 18th hole was pretty damn amazing (but which 18th hole?? hmmmmm)

Tape delay golf should be outlawed in the next TV deal. It's a bunch of BS bickering as to why it happens. CBS can't move it to CBSSN because we're the exclusive cable home. For whatever reason, CBS feels like they always have to protect their window. Kick rodeo or PBR or drag racing off the main network and keep the golf going and when 3:00 arrives, reset everything just like ABC used to do with the British Open.

Morikawa is a ridiculously good iron player. If his putting woes go away he's gonna be really really really good.

Kid is as consistent as they come. He top-5'd the hell out of college events his last 2 years and with the exception of Travelers week, he's constantly in the mix. If you play those daily fantasy games, he and Hovland need to be in your lineup every single week.

2:30 on Golf Channel. So you'll miss his first 4 holes or so.. I get PGA Live and he's a featured group. Would recommend it if you watch a lot of golf

Looking forward to this one. I am in a pool, my group of five (of which at least four have to make the cut) are Rory, Cantlay, Thomas, Matsuyama, and Rahm. JT making me nervous already.

Morikawa was a sexy pick going into this week, but he's struggling. Not the biggest surprise given the emotional win last week.

Edit: Matsuyama off to a terrible start too. WTF.

We've got simulcast of PGA Tour Live all the way up to the 2:30 telecast. But that's today only.

Muirfield Village playing A LOT different than it did 4 days ago. Rough hasn't been touched, greens a little faster, and the wind has been whipping pretty good. Guys are getting killed -- JT +3, Morikawa +4, DJ +5, Schauffele +7.
