…is not a week PGA Tour events like to be put. The US Open is probably the most mentally tough week in golf and most players relax themselves the week before to prepare.
How ironic I am writing about a golf tournament named for the patron saint of lost causes. 😀
I didn’t watch much of the St. Jude, but I have a few thoughts.
I would like to see Karlsson not freeze over the ball so long before he pulls the trigger…and not collapse his spine at impact. He has a good hip turn and a great release, but that hook on 17 would probably go away if he didn’t disintegrate coming into the ball. IMO, that is tough for a tall guy to do and not suffer some injuries as well.
When two players are way ahead of the field and that “match play” mode takes over, it can provide some interesting results…and this was no different.
I hate the term “decel.” I use it and McCord used it on Frazar’s putt on 16. I don’t think it describes things properly and people use that term to screw up the fix and over accelerate without fixing the transition or steer. I prefer steer or bad transition.
Frazar’s putter grip looks like something a loan shark would beat you to death with if you were late in repayment.
Those closing holes at 17 and 18 are nasty and they took a bite out of Karlsson and Frazar at the end of regulation. winning the first time when you don’t do it right away is hard. An invite to Augusta on the line doesn’t help any. 11 and 12 (playoff), weren’t peaches either.
THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE ROUGH!!!!!
There should actually be a penalty for missing the fairway that doesn’t involve losing your ball.
As I always say. Too many 1 and 2 shot penalties in golf course design today and not enough 1/2 shot penalties.
