    Cheers Darren, I don’t know about any feud between them, I’m just hopeful that one of them wins
    although I’d much prefer Wolff though as he’s twice the odds of DeChambeau. He’s just stuffed his
    ball into the rough well away from the green at the par 3 3rd. He needs to steady the ship a bit.

    Good luck today lads.

    With the way the course is playing, I still have a chance for my bet. Need Wolff and Bryson to have bad rounds but the course is playing very tough so it’s definitely in with a chance. Unfortunately, the way they set it up on Thursday always had me behind the 8 ball when they decided to make it play like a USPGA for some reason. Very bizarre.

    Cheers Raymo and Mike, the back nine lost a bit of atmosphere when Wolff
    started to collapse, he would have been a better win for me but you’ve
    got to hand it to DeChambeau, he was ruthless out there, he deserved it.

    Well done with your win bets Raymo, I had Hovland too and thought he was a shoo-in
    for the E/W, but WTF was he doing finishing bogey, double bogey, double bogey :wacko:

    It’s been the wierdest year I can remember, and we’ve got a Masters to look forward
    to in NOVEMBER !! :unsure: Strange days indeed :whistle:

    You had bad luck MOM, just 1 guy put your bet of level or worse winner down. Thursday
    did stuff you, they realised they made an ar%e of it and tightened up from the Friday,
    otherwise you had a real shout. Bad luck mate.

    Leaving the betting to one side, what does De Chambeau’s win mean for the game?

    He is clearly very good at what he does and you could see how much the win meant to him.

    But should golf be a game where muscle bound players whack the ball as hard and as far as they possibly can, without a care in the world for finding the fairway? Personally, I find “grip it and rip it” golf boring and one dimensional to watch.

    The authorities either have to do something about the equipment or redesign a lot of courses. Because if more players like De Chambeau come along, the courses are just going to be overpowered.

    Agree with you but that the way players be like now more about power it true though that Morikawa won PGA championship he not a big hitter

    Changing equipment won’t change anything really

    Bryson and the other big hitters will still hit it further than the others as they swing the club faster

    Not like bryson is winning that often anyway, personally I think a lot of the golf media has an agenda against him because he does everything so differently than the accepted norm

    I have nothing against De Chambeau personally. It was good to see how much the win meant to him. However, I have lost a lot of interest in golf in the last few years. It used to be my favourite sport but the extreme power game has ruined it for me. As has slow play.

    I still like the Open because it does demand a different skill set from just booming it off the tee and errant drives are usually punished.

    I prefer watching womens golf now. The players cannot swing the club as fast and accuracy off the tee is much more important. The game is also still recognisable. I just cannot identify with someone who is reaching 400 yards off the tee. I am lucky if my drives reach half that distance!

    Golf has always been a power game and always will be

    Nicklaus and Woods both dominated the game and were both very long drivers of the ball
