Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

He has a proficiency for playing well in a certain type of major. It's not a coincidence that all his majors have come in conditions with abnormally soft greens and very little to no wind.

He's an undoubtedly great player, but he doesn't have the kind of game that will translate on all types of courses.

If you want a comparison for McIlroy here it is: at this point in his career, he's a young Nadal, a guy that is nearly unbeatable when playing at top level on a certain type of track. He hasn't yet matured into what Nadal became in subsequent years.

I was really pulling for Sergio as well. He seems like he'd be a good dude to play a round with and then shoot some bull with afterward. Plus, he's been through a lot in his career.

Agree that Rory seems a little uppity but I don't hold that against him. I admire great golf and his game is flawless, absolutely flawless. My son asked me if I think he'll ever win the masters and complete the grand slam and I said yes, I think it's more a matter of when than if. He's that good and he's only 25. Heck, I've got shoes older than that.

Congrats to Rory.

The last thing I did today at the golf course was hit 15-20 2 irons in a row. I hit them off a low tee and for the most part I hit them pretty well. The last one I hit I decided I'd hit a fade. I'm pretty much a right to left player these days but I hit it perfect. It was like a walk off homerun.
Good physical practice hitting 2 irons.

Pretty good comparison. Nadal took a while to get good on hard/grass courts, but still was completely dominant on his one surface (and amazingly continues to be a decade later). Like Nadal, I think McIlroy has the talent to go down as one of his sport's all-time greats, but he still has to develop in a few areas before he gets there.

Today was also the first time he's really had to deal with any final round back nine pressure to win a major, so that's something that will help in the future.
