So many people don’t understand just how good that is.  It’s focking amazing that he plays so well at that level   

My cousin has been playing golf since he was a teen and recently qualified for the USGA mid amateur in Colorado.  

He got to the course to play his practice round and saw the greens were reading 13 with massive undulation.  

In his first round he hit 10/13 fairways and 13 greens.  He ended up with 40 total putts, and finished with a 79. 

The next day was the same story but worse. He shot 82.

-7 by the leader after 1 round shows the course is playing really low.  -2 is excellent, but light years from -7.   Making a cut would be a tremendous accomplishment.

in my next life I'd much rather be Tony Romo than Tom Brady. Tony is living the dream, Brady is a boring robot. I can live without the titles. I would definitely practice holding the snap for my kicker.

Not even sniffing the cut, shocker. Keep taking spots away from guys who are 1000% better and actually need the money though :thumbsup:

Golf, like all the others sports is entertainment. Nothing else. They look for attention just like movies want attention by using star power. Same shlt different day. Do you realize how many people go to school to become an actor, yet they often get bypassed by others who never had training but get on tv or in the movies because they are popular for other reasons? It's just a business, and nothing more. Just like golf. And there is nothing wrong with that.

Yup.  Its not like sponsors pick like the Open where next man up on the OWGR gets in.  Sponsors can pick anyone like college ams or that annoying Asian dude that almost falls over every swing.

Golf doesn't exist after August.  I am assuming the field is a bunch of try-hards, or actual pros who are half-assing.

What's the definition of 'deserve' in the entertainment industry?

Someone who has a chance of making the cut? Romo or the Asian dude haven’t, and haven’t even came close

He who write the checks, makes the rules.

If a sponsor wants a celebrity in the field, by gosh - they're entitled to do so. Nobody is taking a spot away from anyone....... If you're getting bumped by Tony Romo - your season has been shiit already. It's on you to play better and not be somebody the sponsor can do w/out.

Anyone who shoots 2 under deserves a shot out there especially if he puts butts in the seats

These are the obvious and correct answers.
