Not meant to be condescending, just saying this year's event is about as exciting as the Solheim Cup.

zzzzZZZZzzzzz on golf until Kapalua in January.

I hope the win just to irritate the Trumpstaffel.... .

I don't even give a poo poo about playing right now let alone watching....even though the weather is finally under 100.

Same, President's cup just doesn't do anything for me.

My next round will be in Hilton Head in 2 weeks, super stoked. I'm gonna hafta hit the range a few times after work next week so I don't go out there and embarrass myself though.

My league is pretty much done for the year and I'm way out of it, but I still have a match play final four I made it in to, so I'm just resting my back until then.

It's weird, I usually burn out in September each year but this year I've just lost all motivation to spend an hour going to/from the driving range at least once per week to stay decent and then spending 8+ hrs prepping, driving to, playing Saturday rounds and driving home.

I think I'm ready for old man play 9 with a pushcart early in the morning 2x per week and don't keep score golf.

Currently without irons, trying to wait for a good deal on a used set. No golf for the foreseeable future.

Short story about PGA Superstore. When I had them measure the 6 iron of the Titleist 716 MB I had for a week, the guy was like, "it's 30*, spot on."

I told him the spec loft of the iron is 31*, to which he replied that he was surprised it wasn't actually stronger since it's a newer club. Bitch does this look like a TaylorMade shovel to you? If I had dropped off the club with instructions to restore the lofts to standard, I probably would have gotten back a 27* club.

It might actually be worse than that. The US can clinch today.

If that happens, they should do something crazy for the singles tomorrow like playing with your opponent's clubs.

What, you think that'll make a mockery of the event? You mean the event that's clearly a cash grab exhibition?

Can't happen. The "others" are one up with one to play, so best case a push, for a 15-2 1/2 lead, making tomorrow necessary.

I suspect no one will still give a poo poo tomorrow. It could be "wacky golf hijinks!"

He did once tee off on a par 3 with a putter in collegiate competition.

And, it's over. 2 up with 2 to play in one match, and the US needs 1/2 point.

edit: And as soon as I posted, he won the match.

Chin up Tiger, There is always next season...

I don't know about other countries but the President's Cup is a relatively big deal when they hold it here in Australia. The two tournaments at Royal Melbourne have been hugely attended and shown on free to air TV. Hell, the World Cup of Golf can sometimes be a big deal here (I went when Day/Scott won it). You still see highlight reels of Craig Parry's chip in against Tiger from '98 (The only International win) on generic sports/golf shows.

I'm hoping to go in two years when it's back here.

You guys had the AFL Grand Final this weekend too. Surely that trumps the President's Cup.

Well yeah but that trumps everything. We had a grand final public holiday on the Friday before the game (which is on Saturday).

But as golf goes I think it's probably the biggest thing we have, particularly now the Australian masters is gone.

Went to the range today and hit every Drive with a snap hook worm burner that was just the worst shot ever. Such a bad feeling and now I have a scramble to play tonight.

I went to my buddy's house for dinner last night and when I walked in he handed me his Caddy's Bib from the President's Cup that he had Patrick and Jordan sign. It's awesome. I can't wait to get it framed.

He also said Chappell's caddy passed out in the hotel hallway Sunday night before they could ever even make it to the club they were going to and that DJ was so trashed by 7 o'clock that Paulina made him go back to the hotel room instead of going out. He also says Paulina has 2 nannies for their kid and 1 nanny for their dogs which seems excessive but I'll never have that much money so who knows.

Overall he said it was a great time, not as exciting as the Ryder Cup for obvious reasons but that it was a lot of fun. He said it was so boring on Saturday that DJ's brother (his caddy) was betting on football games during the round.

I'll post pics of the bib when I get it all framed. Not sure where I'm going to put it and my flag in my new apartment yet but we'll see.
