    We're set up for a Kentucky Derby like finish. Then again someone may get hot and separate from the field.

    Bryson hit an 8 iron stiff on #16, 216 yds I think, of course it's hard to imagine his 8 iron given his lofts and lengths are non-standard. Then hit a tee ball on #17 with a 196 mph ball speed.

    We are coming down to quite a finish, can Xander hold on?

    Well Xander ground out the win, he had to make an up and down on 17 and on 18 had an awkward stance on his 2nd shot but made a good one and then pitched to around 5 feet and made the putt. Great finish.

    I have to say I enjoyed watching Bryson down the stretch. I wish he was back on the PGA Tour.

    Why do I think Scott might be totally unaware of this!! ;);)

    CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Adela Cernousek of Texas A&M got her first collegiate win on the biggest stage, cruising to a three-shot victory at La Costa on Monday to win the NCAA individual title.

    Cernousek, a junior from France, entered the final round with a six-shot lead over Lottie Woad of Florida State, the Augusta National Women's Amateur champion. Cernousek was never seriously threatened as she closed with an even-par 72 to finish at 12-under 276 and help the Aggies finish third in the team standings, three shots behind Stanford and LSU.

    I do too. Meanwhile Rahm is struggling and Koepka isn't much better.

    Now that video of Schefflers incident at the PGA has been released I am reading comments that don't seem to support the police report.

    Tour is in Ft Worth for the Colonial.
    Scottie is in the field, which is pretty good,no Xander though.

    And just like that, Scottie got hot and the lead is down to 3 shots. Lot of pressure on him tomorrow playing with Scheffler.

    Shocking to say the least.

    Two-time PGA Tour winner Grayson Murray died Saturday morning at age 30, one day after he withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial.

    There were no immediate details on the circumstances of his death, only shock and grief from the PGA Tour and his management team.

    Murray shot 68 and 67 on Thursday and Friday before he withdrew for illness.

    2014 Jr. Amateru Final ...Will Zalatoris defeated Davis Riley

    Riley obviously was a really good j

    Davis Riley gets the win, no problem playing with Scottie. Maybe payback for the loss in the 2013 in the Jr Amateur.

    Not a big surprise to me, Lexi has been a shadow of her former self.

    As I suspected, charges against Scheffler dropped. Arresting cop has been disciplined for not having his camera on. The Louisville police have had a poor community image since the Breonna Taylor shooting. The facts of this case weren’t going to help any.
