Career Builders Final round 2016

Post by Admin on Sun Jan 24, 2016 9:36 am

and PHIL is currently in the top five. Our PHIL dream is that he is in contention on Sunday afternoon. It is so dreary to see him go out early and end early on Sunday.

PHIL faltered a bit in later rounds last year and we saw it as well on Thursday and Friday. He finished pretty strong on Saturday. A win today would beyond expected. The top three guys are 3, 4 and 6 strokes out but a top 5 would be sweet to start 2016.

Phil is currently ranked 36th in the world. A good finish today would help that stat. Congratulations to Rickie Fowler for a great win in a strong field propelling him to #4 in the world rankings.

PHIL has been in the top fifty in the world for +21 years now. Yes that's a record.

PHIL spend 20 years in a row in the top 20. So a good finish will be very helpful.

They said Duffer was 182 in putting prior to this tournament. Go figure!!.suddenly he can't miss. Phil needs a low round and top guys need to fall back. Whatever happens Phil needs another great round. He hasn't been able to string 4 in a row in a long time.

so so shot at the second par five.

His iron play has been so so day. That was his 1st weak shot today with his three wood.

Needs a putt for bird. Duffner is waffling a bit so a run by PHIL could still get this thing.

Missed putts at 2-7-9 are so painful

Phil's game looks pretty sharp. This is the most consistent acccurate with the driver in a long time. Very excited for the next few weeks.

Yes, best I've seen Phil play in a long time....drives, iron shots (except the deep bunker), putts !!! Can't argue with what I saw this week! Great job Phil....wonder if that instructor is really helping or is it like a placebo making him feel it's something different? Either way, hope it continues.

Lots of very solid consistent from PHIL this week

Could have been closer on his iron/approach shots. That's the difference there. Too many 25 to 35 foot long putts this week. That's only thing to bellyache about. -21 means he scored well

Two bogie free rounds this week. Wow--only three bogies.

Amazing.

T3 for Phil . This is great no more waiting to knock winter rust off. It was so refreshing to see birdies not being offset with bogeys. When has Phil has 2 back to back rounds bogey free. I'm excited about this year!!

I am really excited about it. Jason Day next week and maybe Rickie Fowler, but when Phil is on, he can hang with them. Just psyched for this year.

That's what I've always complained about....that Phil would show up 'rusty' and blow 2, 3, 4, tournaments trying to get back into playing shape. Glad he spent the time over the break on things with his new instructor and showed up roaring!!

I like what the Charles Schwab cup did in the Champions Tour, they eliminated the points and said....why don't we just go with $$$ won? since that is a measure of tournament placement anyway, why re-invent the wheel with points as well? Should do that with all the tours, imo.... World Ranking, Ryder Cup, President's Cup. Is there any benefit for having a separate points regime?....except for losing points after some time....you can fix that by counting dollars in the current year more than those in the past year or some such tweak.

I agree with that! I also think that the tour needs a break. They keep talking about how the winners so far have all been young. That's because it's a money grab for new and young players in the fall, as players need a break. I don't think many people watch golf with no big players in the field and competing with football. Every sport needs time off. It then generates a certain amount of excitement when the season starts. I do appreciate the fact that young players need to make a living,too, but if you can't do it with a strong field, you might have to keep your day job. That being said, it's scary how young players come out ready to win these days. Many are not finishing college in order to start golfing careers. Phil made more money T3 yesterday than Duffy Waldorf did by winning on the Sr. Tour. The aforementioned comments are JMO.

I think that's just the way it is here in the states for a lot of jobs....we work ourselves to death. I'm a university researcher and I work weekends, after hours, etc.....hardly ever use all of my precious 2 weeks of vacation time (and I don't accrue it either...you lose it). Having met with European counterparts....geesh, in France they normally get like 6-8 weeks of vacation a year?
I saw the same thing in my son's state-wide junior golf tour where invitation to the 'Tournament of Champions' was based on points accrued during the 20 2-day/weekend tournaments....and dang, a bunch of kids played all of them....so if you wanted to get into the TOC, you better join in and play or get left out....seems PGA Tour is going Iron Man Triathlon on tournaments too. I think there's just so much opportunity for the young players to get valuable experience playing big tournaments...in college....many are getting invites to PGA tour events while in college....all the ones that win yearly Amateur Championship, Collegiate player of the year, etc... They're coming into the PGA used to tournament pressure (to some degree).

My daughter is a Doctoral candidate at Vandy in Bio Chem. Its her 5th year and in theory in 5 years she would get 30 days vacation plus holidays. She routinely works 5 full days per week plus an visit to the lab on most weekends. She takes between 5 and 10 true days off (weekdays) during the year. Her PI is very very driven. I had to email the Obit for her Grandmother (my wife's mother) so she could get out of weekend work to attend the funeral.

University researcher is a brutal job. In fact my son in law choice a path for doctoral degree in math as opposed to Physics because it was not hard on his life. Science and Medical MD or Doctoral work is brutal.

Congrats to your daughter, Biochem is tough for sure, and glad the end is in sight. Must be one smart cookie :-) ! Heck, Biochem was one of my several career choices....but got accepted to PhD program in Biochem without assistantship vs. Food Micro with assistantship support.....so went that way.  I'm a Food Microbiologist on faculty.... have graduated 33 MS/PhDs students and at 61 still have to light a fire on the lab side of things, don't do the night time thing too often, but am in my office by 6am till 6pm, generally come to work Saturday and Sunday mornings for about 4 hrs each....just learn to live with it I guess. With the way money in our area has been cut from every direction, it's a struggle to maintain support for a lab, especially with the 'overhead' that goes to the university (48%).

I watched some of the replay when I went home for lunch today, and was thrilled that Johnny Miller had such praise for Phil, that he hasn't seen him play this well in years, that 'every facet of his game is sharp' (they just viewed him chipping into a green from some goofy ball-below-your-feet stance on a grassy hill behind a green for his first birdie yesterday)....and he said wow, his short game is impeccable. So there was good praise thrown his way from Johnny.
