Westwood lost by 1 stroke.
BDC made a 50 ft putt.
Westwood missed a couple of 5 footers.
Therein lies the difference between winning a
and losing. Still it's fun the watch the power hitters.

Whenever I read about Mr Westwood, some clever clogs has to suggest that he can't putt. This time, it's your turn. No one ever came second in a golf tournament without putting well. And short putts are so often missed even by the best players. Fifty-footers are usually flukes, intentional but flukes.

The course definitely added to it. So well set up, with every shot having a risk-reward factor. Tough pin placements as well. It was nice to watch top golfers actually having to think about what they were doing all the time, rather than just the Drive, Wedge, Putt repetition you get on so many courses.

Yes I would agree and I'm one who thinks that the distance they are now hitting it is destroying the game - so work that one out! I fully anticipate he will knock it on the green at the 13th at Augusta off the tee leading to a riot in the clubhouse!

I’ve always warmed to him and seen through the negative bias from the pundits on TV!
Trust me they really do not like someone doing something different! First it was the equal length shafts and now the way he’s put on yardage! The snide comments you hear from them make me sick!
He doesn’t just wack it like they make out, he knows where to miss it like Tiger did! He deserves all the success

I was starting to warm to him until he hit a poor shot into a bunker and got a plugged lie. Because he couldn’t get it close from there, he had a tantrum about them being “the worst bunkers on tour”. Classless.

I believe BDC has clubs all the same length? I once owned (when I played) a club called a SUPERSTICK! It had an adjustable head on it from a 1 iron to a wedge.. The club length was always the same. Not comp legal but it helped groove my swing style etc. bougght as presentby g'friend for when I travelled. useful and good luck to BDC for the work effort etc

The obligatory paragraph about McIlroy towards the end of the article I see. No need given his woeful weekend efforts.

I'm not much of a fan of DeChambeau, take his mutterings yesterday about the bunkers as an example why, but you've got to admire him taking on the water off the tee over the weekend.

Was 'Bob' MacIntyre playing? I didn't see his name on the leaderboard at any point?

Doing my best to see what they see in him, but it isn't happening.
On his very first hole he has 48 feet for birdie, misses that, misses the par putt, misses the bogey putt and made his 4th putt for a double bogey.

That is what I see.

Lee made a bunch of beautiful pressure putts yesterday.

DeChambeau rolled in a couple of superb long range, downhill, left to righters.

It was a great battle and pretty much a 2 horse race even though I was rooting for Conners to finish well, which he did.

DeC hits the ball over 370 yards over the entire lake on the par 5 sixth so MaclLroy tried it too and was playing five off the tee.

That was a beautiful place to watch some great golf and I am so glad the wind blew on Sunday making sure we got a worthy champion.

Of course, once again DeChambeau was that man.
How anybody can not like the skills he brings to our screens I will never understand.
Yes he hits the balls miles ( MaclLroy played five off the tee was superb ), but he chips, putts and is a wonderfully colourful chap

That's the benefit of being pretty much dead last after the 3rd round I guess. You get the favourable conditions first thing in the day. At least he had the rest of the day to kick back and have a few burgers.

Outside he world top 10 and dropping like a stone. This year might be his final chance at winning the Masters, because by next year he won't be exempt.
Quality last round and exciting to the very last putt. Superb entertainment and great to see limited crowds back. Bryson and Lee both outstanding under the pressure of leading the tournament. Two monster putts by Dechambeau the difference in the end. Hope Lee has a major fall into his lap. He has a great record at Augusta.

The usual repetitive garbage from Leslie below I see.

There is the obligatory article on whatever women's event was taking place over the weekend. This weekend some woman from Ireland managed her first top 10 finish on tour for 12 months, so well done her.

Westwood misses too many putts that the guys who win majors tend to hole. It's the only part of his game that consistently lets him down. If he could putt as well as BDC he would have won on Sunday and you would be in the money!

Women should play off the same tees as Men. Just have mixed tournaments. If they did that it would be like tennis . Best woman golfer wouldn’t be as ranked as high as 700 as in tennis it would be more like 2000. I think women golfers earn a lot more money because they have their own tour. If their was just one tour 95% of women pro’s would miss the cut every week. in fact women pro’s earn too much

Unfortunately, nothing about Sandy Lyle having won the Players in 1987 coming with a 10-year exemption at a time where that actually really meant something.

More majors than Adam Scott, Jason Day, Fred Couples and David Duval, the same as Martin Kaymer and Greg Norman.

I really don't understand why Sandy is consistently missed out of these discussions.

Why the same tees, doesn’t account for physical differences? Always the same comment, never the rationale to explain why. I’m off 9.6, would love to see some who are a lot higher thinking about their tee of choice to speed the game up, back tees off 18 speeds disaster, regardless of your gender.

Maksi, why not drop the anti Rory hatred once and for all. At this stage, posters are now looking up viktor’s results and laughing at him when he does badly (155 shots at the weekend?), and this is a situation entirely of your making. Just cut it out, or it is blindingly obvious that people are just going to slag Viktor off in the same way that you insult all Irish golfers and most Scottish ones

Sandy Lyle is consistently described by other pros as one of the best ever. Ballesteros stated that if every player on tour played their best, Lyle would win with Seve second. This was at dinner with Faldo, Lyle, Langer and Woosie. They all agreed with Seve.

Sandy also won 3 of the 5 biggest events (Players, Open and Masters).

Food for thought.

I agree with you they should be paid for the same work as men.

Therefore they should do the same work as men and get the same pay (prize) - play off the same tee, the same yardage (i.e. work amount) and have the same reward, and by doing it in the same competition side by side there would be total equality.

Anything different and then you would be discriminating against one of the sexes.

Elite sport is not a "job". Those at the top get paid big money for a pot that's generated by sponsorship, TV revenues, entrance money paid at the gate etc. The men and the women are on different, self-financing tours - and that's the way it should be. If the offering they present are not equally attractive to the paying public, that should be reflected in the prize money. Seems fair.

Whilst MaclLroy was digging his ball out of the water for the second time in 2 shots, at that exact time Norway's Kristoffer Ventura was sending his tee shot in to the hole for a hole in one.

I think that is the first Norwegian Hole in One on the PGA tour thoughout the history of time?

Totally agree. If the women want the same money as the men then we play mixed sex sports tournaments.

Deserves more money? Because you consider physical strength and brute force to be a measure of remuneration? Pathetic and immature comment.
Prize money in golf has NOTHING to do with equality, sex or race but rather on the value and exposure the title sponsor deems worthy of the expense. TV viewing numbers (in this case mostly men watching golf) will indicate market reach, in golf's case the men's game dwarfs the women's games and prize money shows that.
