Brooks Koepka's caddy was a member at that course for like, 30 years lol. He wasn't the only one with an advantage. Again, you can have all the knowledge you want, dude still had to go out and make shots. It doesn't diminish the victory at all, imo.

Exactly. Its just dumb to even think Lowry had any "unfair advantage". Like I said in an earlier post, Rory McIlroy is from Northern Ireland and shot a 61 on the course when he was 16. How did he do in the Open? Shot 79 in the 1st round and missed the cut.

Just because Lowry had played the course more than most of the others didnt mean he was going to play well. You can know every inch of the course. You still have to drive it well, keep in out of the rough and bunkers, and make putts.

Links golf is a whole different ballgame than the manicured courses in the US. The wind blows many miles per hour and they don't stop play when it starts to rain.
LMAO. You are right. There is no wind in the US. Guess you havent watched or played golf at Pebble Beach. As fot stopping play when it rains... are you serious? I dont care if its in the US , Ireland, Scotland or anywhere. If there is a big time threat of lightening they will stop play. They dont stop golf in the US because of raindrops.
Worst take I've heard in a long time. Maybe the worst. Lol wtf? Jason day literally lives on the memorial course in Ohio and guy can't make a cut there? Didn't Rory shot course record and win his amateur here or something and grow up around Portrush? FYI he didn't make the cut

I think it sucks that they moved the PGA Championship to early in the year. Now there are no majors left. Seemed appropriate to have the PGA Championship at the end of the year to close it out.
Brooks is a monster. The WGC isnt quite a major but its still a huge event with all the best players playing and he once again dominated. Rory couldnt hang with him matched up together in the final pairing.

I honestly think Koepka is the best golfer we have seen since Tiger in his prime. And just think... he didnt even have an "unfair home course advantage"
Justin Thomas with a fricking 61 at Medinah. Your basic 7600 yard course.
Koepka couldn't be more unlikeable. I'm pulling for Rory in this one.
