Tough marker. He did win the Omega Desert Classic on the European Tour last year beating DeChambeau, Fleetwood, Sergio, Hovland, Oosthuizen etc and pocketing $770,000 at age 24 !

Yeah probably harsh, just think he has the talent to have more than one win by this stage, but he is still only a baby.

Great to see Lumpy Herron continuing to stick to the same diet he always has, is there more fries with that

Our club announced it traded break-even this year. Not a bad result I guess all things considered.

Golf seems to be one of the few sports that have been boosted a bit by the pandemic, especially clubs without the big hospitality operations.

People I talk to from lots of clubs are telling me new members and green fees are way up.

Yep apparently that’s happening up here, sounds small , however I believe a Saturday comp had about 60 people pre COVID , now they are getting 100+. Lots of footy players have joined the club

If I had to liken my game to a Richmond footballer ,right now ,I’d have to say Marbiol *smile* Chol
If you swing like he moves that would be one magical tempo. Big Easy like?

If you are playing like he does I imagine you had an eagle and 3 birdies mixed with a triple (that you can't work out how you had) and 2 bogeys for an even par round that screamed potential?

Geez if you’re playing like the Grassy Chol then you’re one round away from shooting a net 85 !

Strange under these new restrictions that golfers have to wear masks when outside on the course and usually a mile apart from anyone, but inside the clubhouse sitting down with 50 people all in much closer proximity, you don't.

Great to see journeyman Stephen Allan qualify for the US Open, hadn't heard of him for quite awhile. His teenage son is going to caddy for him.

Don't bring logic into it when it comes to golf and covid. It won't fly.

Well, it's time for the PRE Triple Bogey Cup ! (Proudly brought to you by Drofder Enterprises).

The second major on the PRE calendar commences this Friday with the US Open at Torrey Pines (played there a couple of times....not worthy of a US Open but anyway.) Phil Mickelson's home town track. Expect the fans will be unbearable.

Lost of questions leading into the tournament. Tigerman-iac ...back to back ? (See how I did that ? Rhymes.) A stunning final round in the PRE Double Bogey Cup to claim victory. Will Mr Burnside make the cut ? Probably not. Will anyone be under par collectively with their team ? Doubt it.

Anyway, same format as before. Pick 6 players totalling no more than 300 points. The winner is the person with the lowest combined score for their 6 players. In the case where the cut is missed or the player withdraws, the player will receive a score of the field average +2 strokes for the final rounds. Winner gets a personally signed pair of 1978 Drofder RPR 2000's - the first pair of running shoes to use NASA approved air pump soles. Amazing.

Player values below. Cut off 6 pm Thursday night. (Zach Zaback ??? Wtf ? Bloke is trying to out-rhyme me.)

Dustin Johnston 110 Brooks Koepka 105 Bryson Dechambeau 105 Justin Thomas 100 Jon Rahm 95 Collin Morikawa 95 Rory McIlroy 90 Jordan Spieth 90 Xander Schauffele 85 Patrick Cantlay 85 Hideki Matsuyama 80 Viktor Hovland 80 Tony Finau 80 Scottie Scheffler 75 Patrick Reed 75 Justin Rose 75 Will Zalatoris 70 Cameron Smith 70 Tyrrell Hatton 65 Louis Oosthuizen 65 Phil Mickelson 65 Sung Jae Im 65 Daniel Berger 60 Paul Casey 60 Shane Lowry 60 Webb Simpson 55 Matt Fitzpatrick 55 Abraham Ancer 55 Tommy Fleetwood 55 Adam Scott 55 Corey Conners 55 Jason Kokrak 50 Gary Woodland 50 Garrick Higgo 45 Marc Leishman 45 Joaquin Niemann 45 Branden Grace 45 Brian Harman 45 Lee Westwood 45 Harriss English 40 Max Homa 40 Sam Burns 40 Sergio Garcia 35 Billy Horschel 35 Christiaan Bezuidenhout 35 Bubba Watson 35 Charley Hoffman 32 Ryan Palmer 32 Si Woo Kim 32 Matt Wallace 32 Stewart Cink 30 Carlos Ortiz 30 Kevin Streelman 30 Ian Poulter 30 Kevin Na 30 Francesco Molinari 30 Charl Schwartzel 30 Robert MacIntyre 28 Cameron Champ 28 Matt Kuchar 28 Matt Jones 27 Sebastian Munoz 27 Matt Wolff 25 Bernd Wiesberger 25 Cameron Young 25 Jhonattan Vegas 25 Chez Reevie 22 Lanto Griffin 22 Martin Laird 22 Russell Henley 22 Wilco Nienaber 20 Zach Johnson 20 Adam Hadwin 20 Brendan Steele 20 Brendon Todd 20 Erik Van Rooyen 20 Dylan Frittelli 20 Henrik Stenson 20 Victor Perez 20 Rafa C-Bello 18 Kevin Kisner 18 Martin Kaymer 18 Mackenzie Hughes 18 JT Poston 18 Guido Migliozzi 18 KH Lee 18 Thomas Detry 17 Adrian Meronk 17 Bo Hoag 17 Jordan Smith 17 Justin Suh 17 Sung Kang 17 Tom Hoge 17 Troy Merritt 16 Wyndham Clark 16 Greyson Sigg 16 Jimmy Walker 16 Marcus Armitage 15 John Pak 15 Patrick Rodgers 15 Peter Malnati 15 Richard Bland 15 Ryo Ishikawa 15 Taylor Pendrith 15 Akshay Bhatia 15 Brian Stuard 12 Chan Kim 12 Dave Coupland 12 Dylan Wu 12 Edoardo Molinari 12 Fabian Gomez 12 Hayden Buckley 12 JJ Spaun 12 Johannes Veerman 12 John Huh 10 Mathew Southgate 10 Matthias Schmid 10 Pierceson Coody 10 Rikuya Hoshino 8 Robby Shelton 8 Sahith Theegala 7 Sam Ryder 5 Thomas Aitken 5 Tyler Strafaci 5 Wade Ormsby 5 Alvaro Ortiz 5 Andre Kozan 5 Andy Pope 5 Brad Kennedy 2 Carson Schaake 2 Charles Osborne 2 Chris Baker 2 Christopher Crawford 2 Davis Shore 2 Dylan Meyer 2 Eric Cole 1 Hayden Springer 1 James Hervol 1 Joe Highsmith 1 Joe Long 1 Kyle Westmoreland 1 Luis Barco 1 Luis Gagne 1 Mario Carmona 1 Matthew Sharpstene 1 Michael Johnson 1 Paul Barjon 1 Rick Lamb 1 Roy Cootes 1 Spencer Ralston 1 Steve Allan 1 Taylor Montgomery 1 Wilson Furr 1 Yosuke Asaji 1 Zach Zaback 1
