2019 Golf/PGA Tour Thread.

Recommended Posts

Getting close to the Florida Swing, which is my favorite non-major time of year in Golf. Love the Honda and Palmer tournaments. This year the Players Championship returns to the FL Swing, which makes it even better. fi

Meanwhile at Riviera, Tiger Woods started his 3rd round with 3 birdies and an eagle thru 4 holes, before play was suspended for darkness. 

JMO: Justin Thomas is really good at golf but is also really unlikeable.

I find it interesting that my players have so little interest in watching the tour. I keep telling them that they will learn from watching the best players compete, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. I hope the latest video game is helping.

There are no decent golf video games anymore. The one that does still exist (The Golf Club) is so hard that you might as well go hit the course yourself. It makes no sense to play a video game when you could go to a real course and shoot the same score if you have any skill whatsoever. Most rounds on that game it is an accomplishment to break 85 on a par 72.

On one of our out of town tournaments they were playing Tiger Woods (?) I think it was and breaking par. I didn't stick around very long to watch. I tend to give them space when we take those trips.

TW was reasonable. TW 2014(released in 2013) for PS3 with Augusta National was literally the best golf game ever made. They ditched TW as the cover golfer after that one, lost the rights to Augusta, and then re branded it with McIlroy. I got so good at TW that I had to turn the sliders to the hardest settings in order to have a challenge.  McIlroy sold so poorly that a PGA branded game hasn't been released since 2015. The only game that is active is TGC 2, where users make their own courses, and you have a general golfer that you play with. They had initially released it such that it was a single release with purchasable online content, but they killed it after 18 months.
