Welcome to #GolfChat! Who’s joining us and how was your past week of golf?  #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: Ryder Cup teams have been picked, play starts next week at Whistling Straits, but the biggest question remaining is around Brooks Koepka and his injury. Do you think the 4 time major winner is a difference maker in this edition of the Ryder Cup? #GolfChat

Q2: Staying with Koepka, he talked about preparing for an individual sport, being thrust into a team environment, and having to adjust. Is it fair to criticize him, or is he just being realistic?? #GolfChat

Q3: Will Zalatoris was voted as the PGA Tour ROY by the tour members and no qualms about his selection, but I wonder how the Tour feels about a non-status player being selected for one of it’s awards by the members. Does this spur the PGA Tour to look how status and exemptions are handled?#GolfChat

Q4: DeChambeau asked Patrick Cantlay to stop walking because he could see or sense him. If you playing partner is doing something to bother you how do you handle it? This involves throwing clubs, complaining or things like standing behind the hole #GolfChat

Q5: @MMGOLFSTUDIOS asked a few weeks ago about 3-4 day golf camps w/emphasis on things you don’t get out of lessons. Immersion into how to practice, how to train, how to play, building a support team and some competition team play. Kind of like a spring training for golf. What’s your level of interest in this type of golf activity?

Welcome to #GolfChat! Who’s joining us and how was your past week of golf?  #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: Team Europe wins 15-13 in a wire to wire Solheim Cup victory over the US squad. With a ruling controversy and maybe your team not winning, did it diminish how you feel about the actual golf that was played? #GolfChat

Q2: Patrick Cantey is $15m richer, but did Rahm and Na actually win the Tour Championship? Nobody can figure out what to do with the Tour Championship so are you willing to let it go until next year or do you want to see some more agreeable format come between now and then? #GolfChat

Q3: Ryder Cup picks for the US are finalized tomorrow, which of the ranked 6 captains picks do you NOT go with and can Brooks Koepka even play?

1- Finau

2- Schauffele

3- Spieth

4- English

5- Reed

6- Berger

#GolfChat 8.31.2021

Welcome to #GolfChat! Who’s joining us and how was your past week of golf?  #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: The BMW this past week had a great finish with Cantlay and DeChambeau needing 6 playoff holes to decide the winner with Cantlay’s 17ft birdie putt. Leaving all the Bryson talk out, how much did you enjoy the last day of the tournament and Cantlay’s refusal to lose? My favorite was Cantlay’s dart on 17 after Bryson was 9ft away. #GolfChat

Q2: Tour Championship and the Solheim Cup compete for eyes this Sat/Sun between NBC/Golf Channel (13 1/2 hours of PGA coverage, 22 hours of Solheim Cup). Wondering if you’ll watch both, neither, as much as you can or catch up when possible? #GolfChat

Q3: Lots of Twitter golf talk about the set up for players at East Lake, stroke play that uses a handicap format based on Fedex Cup points. This means the bottom 5 of the 30 qualifiers are down 10 before the start. Don’t like it or do you see it the same as a bye or home field/court advantage that we see in other sports? A reward for a good year?  #GolfChat

Q4: US Solheim Cup team has 4 of the top 15 players on this years team, Team Europe answers with veteran captain Catriona Matthew, 4 rookies and 3 players with just 1 Cup of experience. It’s a team game though, why are the Europeans so good at getting their teams (Ryder and Solheim) to gell?#GolfChat

Q5: Give us your picks for the winner of the Fedex Cup (and the $15m) and then the biggest impact player in the Solheim Cup, women that can start a run or stop an opponent’s. Celine Boutier for Europe and the US’s Danielle Kang. #GolfChat

Q6: What’s your week in golf look like and what are you excited about? #GolfChat

Q7: PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan says a new policy is in place that and fans will be ejected if they verbally “disrespect” players and what has been yelled at DeChambeau qualifies. Do you think this solves DeChambeau’s problems of just put laser focus on him this week and into the future? Are the fans that do yell at Bryson going to fear being ejected?

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: Seems that everybody is thrilled for Tony Finau who won The Northern Trust and moved up to #6 Ryder Cup standings. Is this the”breakthrough” win he needed and that many more will be coming soon? Do you believe that you need to lose before you can win in pro golf? #GolfChat

Q2: The AIG Open is over, and now eyes turn to the Solheim Cup begins a week from today at Inverness Club in Toledo. Both the US and European teams feature rosters with names we know and some rookies to the Cup play. How excited to watch do you get about the bi-annual contest? #GolfChat

Q3: Do want to see NBC sell The Golf Channel so that golf becomes the only priority again and not part of NBC’s push to a streaming platform? Geoff Shackelford so and he makes his case here https://quadrilateral.substack.com/p/open-letter-to-brian-roberts-for . I’m interested to hear your thoughts #GolfChat

Q4: #GolfChatters play a lot of rounds at many different types of courses, destination resorts, high end day fee, muni’s, and dog tracks. Do you think that golf etiquette, respect for courses, and other players has dropped, stayed the same, or has it gotten better? #GolfChat

Q5: @encinomandude wants to know “What’s the coolest thing you saw someone else do during one of your rounds this year?” Saw 1 of my Back 9 Pro buddies pull hook a tee shot at Rose City way up onto the street above the course that I’ve never seen anybody get to.
