    Cam Smith wearing a LIV Golf shirt is some solid trolling.

    It took a moment to get used to, but once you realize how many times you go to reach into your pocket for your phone during a conversation or when looking at something, it instantly reminds you to be present. I loved it.

    That said, it was unnerving as hell realizing we missed a bunch of texts from our babysitter once we got our phones back (Gen Z doesn't leave voicemail, which you can check using any one of the courtesy phones around the course), but thankfully all was well.

    Why? The Masters is an invitational completely independent of the PGA Tour.

    Watching the guys on the practice range you didn't notice too much LIV/PGATour tension. Some of the usual cliques but nothing unusual appearing.

    Dechambeau had the round of his life yesterday but history tells us that it isn't sustainable. I'd really like to see Rory make a big move today and get closer to checking the career slam off his list.

    Speith woke up today to finish his 1st round and chose the truck-slammer going 6-6-7-7 to finish. Ufda.

    ^thinking the same thing. Do you even want to be leading day 1? Such a whacky thought. Play your ass off, in the lead, and then say, f-me!...this is most likely not sustainable!

    Just another reason why the LIV product isn't appealing to me. There's a world of difference between playing a 72 hole tournament and a 54 hole tournament.

    Was watching the round 1 replay last night and I don't think I've ever seen Tiger leave so many birdie putts short. I know beyond the pin is jail at Augusta, but there were some headscratchers out there for him.

    Their all pros playing for money.
    And they know that's what it's all about.

    Yeah, I don't watch LIV. I can't get into the format or all stat shit on the screen. I'm just annoyed that the best players are not all on the same track weekly. Thankfully events like the Masters keeps everyone together.

    Same. They all need to get their shit together and figure it out. When you see what a crap product the Saudi soccer league is I'm not confident that taking the same approach with the golf product is going to be successful or good for any viewer - sometimes just throwing money at a problem doesn't fix it (sometimes). And yeah, the few times I've seen LIV on TV it was like a gotdamned NASCAR race up there on the screen with all that garbage.

    Back to the Masters, Max Homa is having himself a real good day out there. When he and JT came through 16 the other day he was the only one to get it close in that group by skipping the ball across the water which they say is good luck for the week (probably)

    Hello Friends...

    LIV needs to just swallow their pride and admit their format sucks. They have the big names - run it like a normal tournament without shotgun starts and I might actually watch. You can still keep some kind of team aspect I suppose but the truth is no one gives a shit.

    Also while the big purses are great for the players, unless I get a cut I couldn’t care less. Huge miscalculation on their part. The only time I care about how much the winner gets in a golf tournament is when some longtime journeyman player breaks through and it changes his life.

    While I agree, the only time I care when a tournament ups their purses or becomes a Designated Event is when it helps keep a tournament that I like going to around and ensures it brings in bigger names/players I like - The Heritage for example.

    I'm not sure I'd go to a LIV event because as you accurately state, the format blows.

    isn’t the whole appeal to LIV for players that they make more money for less work? 3-days of play & far fewer tournaments for more money? And the insane part of golf is how shallow the purse drop off is, like #20 at the Masters is going to pull~$200k

    Sort of but most of the players care more about the total number of events they have to travel to and play vs playing one less day once you’re already there. Rahm suggested this week they should consider 72 holes.

    Should be interesting to see the setup tomorrow. Seems the sub air system paired with the high winds have left the greens crustier than normal. Morikawa said he’s never seen greens this hard and dry. I would think they will put a bunch of pins in easier spots to create some fireworks, but will it work if guys can’t get it close?

    Augusta certainly had its teeth out on Saturday. Reports are they are going to water early this morning to soften things up. Stacked leaderboard full of great names and a course you can maybe score on has the potential for an awesome Sunday.

    The last six holes by BD were what golf is all about. Couple three putts, chunk it in the water, hole out from a hundred yards on 18. That’s the kind of golf we can all relate to.

    Bryson has a little of that dumb Mickelson hero shot complex in him. It was so obvious he should have layed up on 15 with those trees blocking the green.

    Props to Max Homa who keeps hitting good putts that won’t drop. No birdies in 31 holes and yet he’s just hanging in there making pars.

    Man, what a day Scotty had yesterday! Thought for sure he had run off the rails like Bryson, but he gutted it out, and suddenly bam! he’s back on top with an eagle and birdie!

    Bryson, on the other hand…. well, that birdie at the end was a good sign, but I think the damage has been done, especially with Scotty back on track.

    Today should be fun to watch!

    Schauffele was rock solid yesterday. It'll be interesting if he can make a run up the leaderboard today.
    Scottie is just so dialed I'm not sure anyone can beat him. His 2nd into 18 for the finish was so good.

    Thinking Morikawa is going to be one to watch today.
    He is the only one to improve his score day to day over the first 3 rounds.
    Scotty, while improving by one shot in round 3 vs round 2, is still feeding off his opening round of 66.
    Bryson has been tanking round to round, although that miracle shot on 18 could propel him.
    Likewise, Homa, while steady, has been slowly sliding switch.
    Aberg's been up and down steady.
    Schauffele's the only other one on the board that has not had a down round yet.

    Which one of these guys is going to catch a little spark today and go for the win ?

    Even if they water the shit out of those greens, by the time the leaders get to them they'll have been baking under that hot
    Georgia sun all day. Softer early greens could allow someone from down the field to make an aggressive run up the board.
    Should be an interesting ending down the stretch.
    Here's hoping for some playoff holes !
