So, today at St. Andrews, a few of my favorites are doing ok so far:

Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Louis Oosthuizen - I've some people to look up more about, like Kevin Na. Have a space on my "leaderboard" reserved for Darren Clarke, for sentiment alone, I suppose. He's at T88 at this point.

I reread the thread, still enjoy it, though 2015 brought the attention of someone who zeroed all of us. I tried to combat it with thumbups, then realized that by doing that was leaving myself as the only one zeroed a zillion times, so I backed off. Let me assume the thumber despises golf, I'm guessing for water use reasons, which I get, but then the person hadn't read my opening take re grey water..... or bothered to discuss or argue.

Meantime, it is day 3 in 2017; I'm just starting to follow what has been happening today. As usual for me, I follow on https://www.theguardian.com/sport/live/2017/apr/08/the-masters-2017-third-round-live.

@ossobucotemp,
OK, OK! The guy I wanted to win the Masters has just won, and today's development of players going forward or backward in scoring was a complete nail biter. Good thing I don't bite my nails. It helped me as a watcher that I already liked a lot of the guys at the end of it re whoever would win. This win was a long time coming, though he had many non-Masters wins over the years.

Vivid Congratulations to Sergio Garcia for the win, and boy, does he deserve it!

@ossobucotemp,
Fair play to him after he bottled it last year!!

I didn't put money on him to win but he was 40/1 beforehand to win it, great bet if you were on it!

@CameronWebber,
Neat article today, that is, if you happen to enjoy golf and golfers, and not just hate them..

Welcome to a2k, Cameron. I don't do sports betting, egads no, given my financial situations in longish life, but I have looked up some of that once in a while for curiosity... mostly re an a2k game re US type football.

Golf: A game in which an insane person wakes a 6am in order to hit a small white sphere over 800 yards of wet grass.
