Fuck it, thought I might as well start one, rather than making random threads through the year.

BMW PGA Championship - Alex Noren shot a course record -10 to come from nowhere to set the clubhouse league (which feels like hours ago!) with a near flawless round. Everyone chasing currently falling apart.

Let's hope it continues!

Yeah he won quite comfortably in the end. Setting the clubhouse lead kinda took everyone by surprise. He set a pretty tough target although i'm surprised no one really got close to him. After that everyone just started making mistakes trying to chase the lead. The weather picked up for an hour or so too but ultimately a fair few just crumbled.

Waiting on this cheeky bad boy to complete a pretty solid Sunday!

His mugshot removes the suspicion part. Looks like he needs to check into the Fear thread.

I don't know when he had surgery,I think it was quite recently.Only takes a little beer or two and the pain medication kicks in.Crazy to even consider though like you said when they have money. A.Get a driver or B.if its too far get your private jet :winnings:

US Open starting next week.

Who is everyone fancying?

Big Dustin hasn't been in full flow since his return, Mcilroy is missing too much golf too.

For no reason other than I drew him in the sweep at the golf, I am going to bet Speith n try to double up the winnings.

As usual will go with various outsiders at high odds. Could really go to anyone.

If Adam Scott can get his putter going though he'll have a shot. Had some solid form of late.

Will make my final bets on Tuesday or Wednesday though.

Rafa still got an outside chance tonight although Berger looks good.

Fancy cabrero-bello as an outsider, DJ for the win. If Noren is playing a bet on him also

Yeah Noren is in the field. Playing well again too.

The course is very long and firm. 4 par 5s over 600 yards so length will help if you can keep it straight.

US Amateur was at Erin Hills in 2011. Kelly Kraft won but he's not in the field. Spieth, Koepka, Henley and English all competed though so could be some value in them.

Spieth and outsider e/w probably Westwood at 100/1.

I've picked a few that I fine value on the exchanges:

Branden Grace 50 - solid US Open player; good all round.

Martin Kaymer 110 - champ at Pinehurst; not the best of form lately but dangerous and his attempt at Augusta was noteworthy given his previous goes there.

Billy Horschel 110 - a man on form at present, 1st at the Byron Nelson and good showing yesterday at Southwind.

Lee Westwood 140 - solid major contender; no thrills and doesn't try anything too fancy so should suit here.

Bill Haas 280 - just too big a price for a former FedEx Cup champ at his age.

Zach Johnson 310 - no noteworthy form recently bit can plot around a course and a lethal putter on song.

Haotong Li 560 - some solid form on q European Tour and capable of a lot more Imo; worth a few bob at the price.

Martin Laird 610 - the course definately had some links characteristics so feel obliged to back a Brit at a fancy price, Laird has some form to note in the last year and can go well.

I like a few others including Rose, Schwartzel and Furyk at the odds but these are my main men.

Threat of Thunderstorms on Thursday and Saturday plus if you can't keep it on the fairway, then, good luck!!

Be prepared for some of the longest rounds of golf ever with that rough.

they have the fairway, then they have 5 yards of semi rough before they are in the heavy stuff.  Just keep in on the fairway chaps and stop fucking moaning.

The issue is these guys dont like to be made to look foolish and if they are in that heavy stuff and trying to get out, then they can be made to look foolish and with it bein 7740 yards they cant drop down to irons off the tee

More golf courses should be like that! I get a bit pissed off that pros get to spray it anywhere, never lose a ball and always get a decent lie. Most of the courses I've played in Scotland are like a US Open course where you are penalised if you hit a poor shot.

Suggestions 3 balls COULD take up to 6 fucking hours due to all factors taken into account ie the property, the course, the weather, the event, and of course just slow fucking players. I'd put them all on the clock from the first tee. 

Ironically Kevin Na is one of the slowest on tour! Some two balls easily take 4 to 4 and a half hours. Pretty ridiculous!

We are, as amateurs, getting emails from our clubs to take time off each hole, golf ready and pros seem to be getting slower it is a joke and they will turn off the viewing public with this shit. I am all for testing players,  but all they do is lengthen courses, making golf even slower. Just put all the trouble at 300 yards and leave everyone with mid irons and longer to the greens. OK we all want to see booming drives but it doesn't need to be every hole.
