Wells Fargo Round 3

Post by j58golf on Sat May 16, 2015 10:47 am

Last year Phil shot a 63 0n Saturday. We need 2 more great days to prove the over 40 crowd still has it. GO PHIL!!!!

But he only shot 71 in round 1. Again, inconsistency. I hope he can go low again!

Rory and his 320+ yrd drives in the fairway is going to make this a romp. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

the odds of Phil playing great and Rory playing poorly in the same tournament are not good.

Im so glad Rory decided at last minute to add this tournament. Evil or Very Mad Hopefully he will cool down for the next 3 majors and Phil can peak

Wet on 18th but guess it doesn't matter at this point. Phil failed to birdie 3 par 5s today and Rory the new Tiger.

PHIL does not like hole #18 and it kills his round.

He would have been 7 strokes back but that's another matter.

Just typical of Phil's game. either plays lousy for 1-2 rounds and great for 1-2 rounds, or just throws it away with a triple here, a triple there.

Phil will not have the rivalry with Rory. It's not in his mind, as he's too old at this point. He can rebound tomorrow, as he' s still in the top 10, but unless Rory has a total collapse, and Phil does what Rory did today, he'll not win. How's that for stating the obvious? Phil looked dejected on the first day of this tournament, and I think he loses his concentration unless it's a major.

Phil didn't birdie 3 of the par 5s. Which is a must!! Had he done that he would have been -14 at the 18th tee box and I don't think he would have tripled it. At that point he was way behind Rory and new it was looking hopeless. At one point in the tourney they said he was 1st in putting its a shame when Phil is in contention Rory was firing on all cylinders. Im afraid when Phil plays decent there will be someone slapping down a course record! It stinks because he is not in contention on any regular basis.

That's unfortunate, because I don't think he can all of a sudden command his focus just because it's a major...if he isn't trying to maintain it regularly, and become second nature, then I think he will never attain it in a major. That's something he is just fond of saying, regarding playing for the majors, but he often says things just to maintain a perception of a positive outlook, imo.

It is unfortunate, but Tiger was the man who got under his skin. He wants to win a major, especially the US Open, so he may view Rory as Tiger then, but I don't think he can keep his concentration for 18 holes most of the time.

And I think the reference to 'unable to maintain focus' is so overused.  It's like blame the focus instead of the player, as if it is something not the player's fault.  The drive on 18 in 3rd round.... was a blown/bad shot imo, had nothing to do with focus.  

I can imagine everyone in their 40's now using the 'I can't maintain focus' excuse when it is really more like 'I can't hit it like I used to'.

Well, I've had lots of experience with autistic people and those with ADD or ADHD and it's a real problem. I am not sure if it's sometimes caused by medication, but it's real. Do I know that it's Phil's problem, no. It's kind of the daydreamer thing, which does not work in certain situations. Sometimes it's lack of interest. Perhaps it's just carelessness that makes one miss tap in putts. I also know that as one ages, muscle memory is not as reliable as it used to be. Remember Tiger saying his glutes don't activate? LOL There's a reason that's physical as well as psychological for athletes not having an everlasting career. One of these days I do believe that it will all come together, at least one more time, for something magical to happen for us fans. Watching him win the British Open makes me a believer, for I never in this lifetime thought I'd witness it.
