Looks like a good finish coming up , like to see Casey or Finau get the Trophy.

I haven’t had a game in bloody ages now , however got myself a set of spalding elite blades and persimmon woods from the tip the other day, I think I’ll take them out to my old sandscrape course for a trundle soon, I’ll use the modern ball though
It looks like being an epic finish I hope Casey wins too, I backed him yesterday at $15 on the back of him being bogey free day 2 and just the one on day 3. He hasn't had a bogey through 12 today.

I've only started watching the PGA tour recently due to having the free Kayo 2-month trial.

I'm really enjoying Nick Faldo's commentary, he is a really entertaining and knowledgeable golf personality on both the golf swing mechanics and the psychology behind the best players.

I loved his comments on Si Woo Kim just before he aced the 2nd hole. He mentions Kim's perfectly aligned posture and body just before the ball hops into the hole.

Happens around the 50:00 mark of the replay of R3 coverage.

I think you'll find much of the coverage is effectively on delay so commentators often know what is going to happen. Its only the leaders and even then generally the final few holes that you are really getting live coverage. Unless it's Tiger or Phil and then you get every shot of every round.

How great to see Melburnian David McKenzie shoot -9 62 at the champions tour event 1st round.

Amazingly overshadowed by Mickleson who shot a 61. But some other big names in the field, the likes of Choi, Singh, Langer, Els, Calcaveccia, O'Meara, Stricker, Toms, Montgomerie, Goosen.

Mckenzie has been a 30 year pro - the archetypal journeyman. Hope he can be in contention on the weekend.

There's a werewolf at Winged Foot, his golf swing makes mine look like Adam Scott's. He's 21 and as a 3 shot lead, I hope he wins it.

Edit

Wolff now a 2 shot lead after the 3rd round.

Can't bring myself to watch DeChambeau in/win the US Open.
So watching Aussie Hannah Green who is second one shot behind the leader with 4 holes to go. Her putter has let her down the last few holes, but has a good birdie chance on 15. She is the defending champion, come on Hannah, you can do it.

Edit

She lips out her birdie put, damn it.

Amazing you only hit 23 out of 56 fairways and still win a US open. Terrific effort. Not a great fan of his but have to admire his moxy to play like no one in history has.
