Watched his after round interview. He was his usual prick self. Blamed luck on some of the poor shots. 

Interesting enough, Spieth also blamed some poor shots on bad luck, but Jordan isn't an arrogant prick so it didn't come across as blameless as Brooks.

I know the golf pro at Great Hills CC here in Austin (sons played baseball together). He’s spent some time with Koepka. When I asked who he pulls for in majors, he told me “Anybody but Koepka”.

This is a very generous sentence:

"The balance of the estate went to charities that had as their goal controlling the growth of population that he saw as the preponderant threat to the world." 

The more truthful way to say it would be:

"Roberts hated children and while he was a very conservative man, he was a strong advocate for abortion.  As such, the balance of his estate went to Planned Parenthood."

If Koepka doesn't back up, folks are gonna have to play their asses off to beat him. Best chance for Koepka to lose might be due to an injury from wild sex with his crazy wife...

I suspect Jena was part of Koepka's demise on Sunday at The Masters...

Used to root for Lefty in most events.  Not a Phil fan anymore really.

He was fucking nails on Sunday.  The shots he on the back 9 were ridiculous.  Right over the top of the flag on 16, nearly eagled 17 and hit it to 10 feet on 18.  Made easy birdies on 13 and 15.  Not a bad gopher for age 52.  Until Sunday, I didn't think I'd ever pull for him again.  Probably still won't but damn this was impressive.

Cantlay claims they had to wait to hit on most holes, starting on No. 2 tee.  Wasn't there.  Don't know.  But he sure looked pokey when they had the camera on him.

Something was always sketchy about Phil. Never liked him, but couldn't put my finger on why. 

Thanks for proving my instincts right, Phil.

You can always tell a Milford Man.

So weird that we lost that date. 

The HGA fucked it up.  Shell pulled out as the sponsor and the HGA didn’t have the right stuff to find another sponsor.  Thus, the slot was lost.  Pity because the pros loved the course set up at the Golf Club of Houston and we had a great field being the week before the Masters.  Then Crane came along.  He gets it done.

sure. I just guess I mean it was weird that the HGA fucked it up and a city as big as Houston had a hard time finding a title sponsor for a slightly better than mid tier event.

Usually, the week immediately before the Masters doesn’t get the best of fields. Not many top players played the week before this year’s.

That's been the case recently and perhaps before the Shell Houston Open moved from The Woodlands to what is now the Golf Club of Houston in Humble.  When it was at the GCH and it was scheduled the week before the Masters they were able to set up the green complexes similar to Augusta National--this was widely discussed during the telecasts--and many pros who would otherwise take the week off before the Masters would come to the Shell Houston Open.  The tournament had an excellent field before Shell pulled out.  Lefty, Spieth, DJ, Reed, Rose, JT, Garcia and many other top pros would usually play.  Check out the leaderboards from 2015-2018 (the last year it was played the week before the Masters).  Of course, Tiger never plays the week before a major--I believe with no exceptions.

Tiger also had a beef with the HGA.  When he was an amateur,  they wouldn't offer him an exemption into the field.  Really stupid since he was working with Butch out at Lochinvar at the time.  Good call, Steve Timms.

Monumentally stupid if that happened after his second or third US Am title.  After he won his second US Am I had floor tickets to a Rockets game and he was sitting a couple of seats away.  I said to my wife that this guy is the next Jack Nicklaus.  It was obvious to any fan of golf that he was destined for greatness.
