BDC:

Par 3s: -3
Par 5s: -4
Par 4s: +7

Stop making up rubbish about being 'ill' and start showing some adaptability. For a data guy, he ain't reading the above data that well.

BBC get over yourselves. Bryson has scraped in and has been shocking over the last 2 days.

Maybe focus on the debutant that’s sharing the lead or the other 59 golfers?

"Bryson has scraped in and has been shocking over the last 2 days." Exactly, which is why it's interesting news.

Whilst I can understand the BBC's previous love affair with Tiger Woods. He was after all the most famous name in golf and a multiple major winner. Where on earth has this current obsession over Bryson DeChambeau come from? There are dozens of other golfers in front of him in the field. What possible reason does the BBC have to base an article around DeChambeau?

I hate the idea that if a popular sportsperson gets lots of media attention, it must be an "obsession" or "love affair" or "bandwagon". Why are people surprised that the winner of the most recent Major is getting media attention? He's a controversial character, and was boasting before the tournament, then he plays poorly. Of course it's going to be of interest.

I totally agree. This man has done nothing but try to ruin golf by saying POWQER is the game. It isn't, it is skill and the sooner the Americans also make good courses with twists and turns instead of long parallel straight holes the sooner the better. I have played for 60 years and the way this power game is going itv is killing the game.

A plugged ball gets a free drop, if you can find it. BDC unfortunately couldn't despite it being within 2 yards of fairway. Had it been designated GUR he didn't even need to find it, but obviously after the deluge not enough time to find every bad spot on the course to mark GUR. Hard luck for Bryson.

When watching good players, I’m often thinking what can I learn from their swing. Els’ tempo for example, or Louis. But when I watch Bison, there isn’t a single thing about his approach that I think looks good. Effective in the right course, but Christ it’s ugly to watch.

That seems unlikely.

The bloke had a giant ego, has announced in interviews that he will win at least 10 majors. The chances of him keeping his head down are zero.

You can see that he just looks confused out there, can’t understand why he isn’t leading.

There’s about as much chance of Donald trump conceding with grace as there is of bison not boasting .

Someone on here the other day made a set of predictions, one of which was McIlroy finishing 10th after hitting some great final rounds and a dreadful opening round. Not a bad shout! McIlroy really needs to work on playing under pressure again, he hasn't been able to do that for a good 5 years now.

I recall another prediction being deChambeau coming close to winning though... ??

"Can we stop talking about Bryson?"

Why? His boasting pre-tournament and subsequent poor play is the most interesting thing that's happened so far, given we're halfway through a 4 day tournament. That's more interesting than endless speculation on who might win, despite there being 2 more rounds left to play.

McIlroy had a dreadful first round. But if he can match his second round & maybe find a little extra over the remaining 36 holes, you never know. So often he has a round so bad in the majors that it destroys his contention, despite the brilliance of the other 3. Or look at the Open last year, a complete Jekyll & Hyde performance, just missing the cut. That was probably nerves, being on home shore.

McIlroy had a dreadful first round. But if he can match his second round & maybe find a little extra over the remaining 36 holes, you never know. So often he has a round so bad in the majors that it destroys his contention, despite the brilliance of the other 3. Or look at the Open last year, a complete Jekyll & Hyde performance, just missing the cut. That was probably nerves, being on home shore.

Butch was talking about this on tv last night, saying that lack of rough around the greens is great protection for a course, allowing the balls to run into challenging run-off areas rather than every course having a collar of rough on every green that stops the ball going into nasty places.

A plugged ball gets a free drop, if you can find it. BDC unfortunately couldn't despite it being within 2 yards of fairway. Had it been designated GUR he didn't even need to find it, but obviously after the deluge not enough time to find every bad spot on the course to mark GUR. Hard luck for Bryson.

A plugged ball does not get a free drop.. unless the organisers announce 'placing on fairways allowed'. This is usually only announced in extreme conditions where there are large puddles on the fairways/greens.
Did you see a puddle anywhere, i certainly didn't, so the ball has to be played as it lies which is THE most basic rule of Golf.
In Club Golf 'placing' is often referred to as Winter Rules.

I find it difficult to regard Bernhard Langer and Adam Scott as serious golfers whilst they continue to use those ridiculous broom handle/ pendulum putters.
Most players who used them have switched back to standard putters before the ban comes in.
And most Golf Clubs have now banned them.
The game is about a swing of the golf club. You don't swing a club if it's pivoted to you !

Where on earth has this current obsession over Bryson DeChambeau come from? There are dozens of other golfers in front of him in the field.

I hate the idea that if a popular sportsperson gets lots of media attention, it must be an "obsession" or "love affair" or "bandwagon". Why are people surprised that the winner of the most recent Major is getting media attention? He's a controversial character, and was boasting before the tournament, then he plays poorly. Of course it's going to be of interest.

Someone talked about Adam Scot and his putter BUT what about SUPERMAN and his. DeChambeau thinks that he can rule Golf. NEVER.
