3 chips in off the green for Pat Reed today.

When you watch the repeated clips of Tiger Woods and Rory MaclLroy chipping in and everybody creaming themselves over it, remember that every single one of these pros does it every single day.

Know what the funny thing is? I chipped in twice this morning, and I drive a truck for a living.

Well done to Englands Westy, Fitzy and Laurie Canter. Superb

I have seen what you wrote and would suggest that you made a deliberate and concerted effort to grab some of the shame. Regardless of anyone else's behaviour, you need to own your words, and maybe even think about them before you write.

Thank you HABlet for your post. I ignore most of what this superglammy character posts as its offensive. As you can see my post above is not remotely offensive to anyone.

Westwood hasn't won a major because he's never been able to putt.

Hard to think of major winners with no putting skill, with the exception of Garcia's masters win.

Utter rubbish, your obviously a sad Poulter fan who is desperately grasping at straws.
When it comes to Poulters form what’s he actually achieved since the days you refer to (ZILCH)!!..
I think he should now be called “The golfer who never was.”
And yes, I am an avid golfing fan particularly of genuine professionals but not of the over egotistical Poulter who thinks he’s better than he his...

I love it when people with small men syndrome put comments like this on. They obviously don’t understand how much skill is needed in this game, so much more than sports like rugby and football. They earn millions of pounds and if they have the skill, good luck to them. Would you turn the millions of pounds down if you were good at any sport. Small man syndrome can be treated I think. Hehehe

Better for the women to have strong fields competing on strong courses, like the current Women's US Open.

Mixed events are fine for team competitions and occasional exhibition events. And another format we have seen is to have men's and women's event taking place on the same course at the same time. But having men and women competing against each other off different tees raises concerns about fairness ... could be too easy for the women on one course and too hard on another. Also limits the fields.
