    Well, seems like a few in the media and myself jumped to a couple of conclusions about Woods DUI.

    Not sure where this leaves him though.

    Chronic back pain issues are something I wouldn't wish on anyone. Addiction to pain-killers happens all too frequently. THC without the smoke, seems to be the best remedy.

    My buddy's nephew won his match today for the NCAA champion Sooners.

    Watched the whole thing. Like watching Ryder Cup. Wadkins hit the nail on the head when he said the high winds would favor Oklahoma because it was identical to the conditions they play every day on their home course. That's exactly what happened as Oregon struggled all day trying to figure out the winds, even on the greens, but especially above the trees, while Oklahoma knew, and was better at, that trying to keep the ball low was the only way to play. Oregon kept challenging and misjudging the wind.

    I came here expecting a comment about Day.

    The pressure of a Major.

    I like that they are moving the tournament to be the 2nd Major. It bridges the other two better.

    Good call.
    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Agreed, and it's also a huge benefit IMO for The Players Championship, which will go back to March (and part of the Florida Swing) where it belongs.

    Definitely makes the TPC have a lot more relevance and will truly be the 5th Major.

    I don't really care for it. I think the golf season is still getting into the swing of things in May and as a fan, I like having a later major in the year when my golf game is at full swing.

    I wonder with them moving the PGA in between the Masters and US Open will effect northern courses like Whistling Straights.

    It will also allow them to get more focus on the FedEx Cup playoffs. Now with the new schedule they will get done by Labor Day before the NFL season which now takes a lot of the focus off the playoffs. Also it will help for Olympic years too as last year they had to really move up the PGA several weeks to give the players time to fit the Olympics in. Now with the majors done in July it gives a lot more flexibility during those Olympic years without having to adjust the major schedules.

    It might. The southern courses may come back into play.

    The PGA was in Charlotte, NC this past weekend. That course is about 5 miles from South Carolina. That's the south.

    Right. But other courses too that may be a bit too warm to play in August like Atlanta CC, Colonial, perhaps. Maybe some of the Florida courses.

    Those places aren't really any warmer than Charlotte, NC or Louisville, KY in August.
