    We get it Bryson hits it far.

    People have been carrying the ball 400 yards a long time. These side shows are meaningless.
    I mean Really, what took so long Bryson ?

    I’m not betting against him, but we will see how bryson plays golf at Augusta. He can hit a bunch of 400 yard drives there but it comes down to avoiding those 2 or 3 really costly ones over 4 days.

    And then adding great small ball play.

    These track man long drives on tic tac toes are what they are, nothing new really. These numbers are customary in long Drive circles. The new happens if Bryson takes it to a major like he did at the Us Open.

    Until then, yawn with the long drive numbers posted on the Twitter already.

    Why would they not let tiger in early? Especially since Later on sounding like Rory will be going for sure; when he hasn’t even won there.

      Baxter: I would think a November Masters requires a lot of work on the course, the overseed is still relatively young, Nicklaus was talking about everything they’d have to do to get it right…..thus, no one getting to go that early…As for Bryson, I didn’t think his style would be suited for a US Open, there’s literally no rough at the Masters to speak of….I think he’ll be the most-watched and at this point, most anticipated player in the field…will he bring a 48-inch driver?

        Yes he will. He’s gonna do great.
        I remember the first year bryson played the Masters after winning those big Am events; he was doing her way round 1, the suddenly snapped one at 18, made a small mess, as faded.
        Augusta May look wide open but almost every single hole has a distaste waiting; remember Rory the year he made a mess of hole 1?

          We’ll touch on this Masters week but they don’t allow those green reading books that Bryson buries his nose in for at least two minutes before he putts….
