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?
