If Rory can go 6 MORE under on the last 5, he has a chance. 

That would be a 59.

Smith derailed at 12 he’s scrambling hard now .

That double eagles on 13  and chip ins on 18 from Rory and Morikawa was great theater.

That was a flawless round.  No one was catching him today.

Flawless?  Really?

Your second sentence is accurate.   

It all hinged on that third hole.  That was at least a three shot swing based on where their tee shots went.

Okay how about "nearly" flawless since I guess we're splitting hairs now.  4 birdies and a bogey not including 18 when he was already in the clubhouse in his head was a round anyone will take on Sunday.

And since we're getting super duper technical, no, it didnt all hinge on the shot on the 3rd. He made a couple of great par saving putts that were as big if not bigger.  His outs from missed tee shots were also "near" flawless as well.

A nice $2.7 mill for 4 days of work aint bad.

he's won 4 tournaments this season and $10 million playing 13 events. That's impressive.

the most won in a year - 2015 — Jordan Spieth, $12,030,465

he's already exceeded last year's money leader for the entire 2021 season - 2021 — Jon Rahm, $7,705,933 - how nuts is that.

he's gonna shatter that record.

The third hole was enormous.  Smith had cut it to one.  He hit an awful tee shot that was fortunate to end up behind the obstruction that allowed the drop into a wide open look at the green.   The pitch for birdie likely winds up 10-15 feet past the hole if it hadn’t banged the pin and they probably both would’ve bogeyed. 

He deserved to win.  No question.  But that was the type of huge break that is pivotal for an ultimate champion.

He won it with his short game.  He was spraying it around at first and the short game kept him in it.  Smith's meltdown on 12 sealed his doom.  Rory just started too far back.  Impressive win minus the meaningless 3 putt on 18. 
He is on fire in 2022.  All the pros said, "watch out when this kid starts winning". 
He won 2/3 of all the 130 or so Jr tournaments he entered.  Not top 10, won.

Then Smith was back to even after 4 after 2 boges.  So much for the challenge.  It looked like there was a chance to get back after 10 & 11, where Smith started the late close, but...12.
Part of me wishes Smith doesnt hit that shot fat, because that might've made for some great golf.

two timelesss masters tips from past champs - if i ever hit my 2nd shot onto the green on #11, i've pulled it - ben hogan.
the only goal on #12 is to clear front bunker, 2-putt for par and get ouuta there - jack nicklaus.

I'll never be able to understand why people think golf is interesting, let alone entertaining. Worse than soccer.

Because most people (in our demographic) play golf and can put themselves, in their mind's eye, in the exact situation facing the pro in each shot, and really feel it in their bones. Personal relation.  It's the same reason I like baseball, which is deadly boring. From my many years of playing, I can still feel a swing when you get really good contact, or the rush of throwing a perfect strike on the outside corner. But on TV baseball is horribly boring.

Smith. If I saw him in the parking lot after the round, I would definitely think he was a homeless beggar about to hit me up. Dude looks horrible and need a makeover.

Also, going into the last hole he was T-3 at -5 and was not going to catch the leader. I wish the announcers had told us how much $$ it meant to him to move solo into third, or to stay tied, or to fall to fourth. It had to be probably a 100,000 or 200,000 swing each way. That was the real meaning of that hole, to him. Talk about interesting.

Having slept on it, I realize I overstated the importance of that hole to the day overall.  At the time it happened, it was huge.  And getting the drop obviously saved him at least one shot.  It was certainly not the only reason he won, because he still had to and did play great afterward.

Smith’s shot on 12 was really unfortunate.  He’d just made that incredible approach and birdie on 11 and it looked to be game on.   I was happy for him to get the two late birdies to regain some of the lost ground.

Answering my own question, and I’m a little surprised at how spot on I was.  A $150,000 hole is indeed interesting:

3rd place alone: 1,020,000

4th place alone: 720,000

Splitting: 870,000 each (this is where Smith stayed with a par)

It's also possible that with how clutch that shot was, it fucked with Smith's head and was part of the bogies on 3 & 4. Maybe, maybe not.  I will say as someone who is not a fan of the game, that is one of the more interesting aspects of it; that being the mental game. 

The ball doesn't move, there's no one defending it, or trying to keep it out of the goal.  The only difference between the practice swing and the contact swing is that you're 3 inches closer to the ball.  It really should be the easiest game in the world to play, but it's not.  And as someone who is not a fan of the game, I can appreciate the mental toughness it takes to win a Major.  These guys weren't even carrying their own bags.  They were just walking 18 holes with lots of breaks to stop.  Yet watching them walk off of 18 you'd think they had just been thru a physical battle.

He just won $3.6 million at The Players Championship last month.  The money didn't mean that much to him.

Well yeah.  The head fuckery is why I was so locked onto that as a factor in the outcome.   Smith had a decided advantage for the second shot, then he duffed his right next to Scheffler.  Then Scheffler's good pitch shot that was humming along, crashed into the pin and fell in the hole.  Complete gut punch.


As for it being easy, the great Winston Churchill said it best...

I don't know where else to put this and most won't care about it but this is a great piece on Will Wilcox.  Obviously he's not a super well known player but this is an amazing story and I hope it ends up well for him.

Big golf tournament this weekend in Tulsa.

Who are you playing ?

Haven't looked at the odds, but hard to bet against Scottie Scheffler.

Damn Bobby Petrino!!!  What the Hell was he thinking?

Feels like it's Spieth's time to win the career grand slam.  He's been trending and can pull of some of his wizardry on that course.

Or Rory gets back in major-winning form.

rolling through the channels, stopped on "Live at the PGA" on the golf channel, during commercial, for shits & grins wondered how like before I saw Tiger. came back to him out of the break
