    It would be fitting if Im —the hardest working man in golf —ended up with the biggest bonus check.

    It’s Amazing how DJ and Rahm can miss so many fairways and still be in contention. Their putting and overall play is still on another level for both. Although, Rahms finishing disasters may have eliminated him; DJs finish at 18 seemed to save the day By maintaining the lead.

    Xander is the quiet man here. The year JT won the big big bonus it was Xander with the lowest score and only a stick for his troubles. I’m sure the so cal man feels very deserving of a cup.

    JT seems to be having an attitude problem week he will learn from later but too late if not careful. He needs to cheer up a bit. Easier said than done.

    But What’s most on my mind is the new daddy. No attitude problems here this week for Rory. But way too many careless mistakes.
    I called that would happen to Rory on 18… Right before it happened…at least on dvr time.
    As bad a decision as rory made on that water ball by taking too much club from that nasty bermuda; the unforgivable mistake was hitting driver again through the fairway after he barely got away with it yesterday.
    Rory also made many poor choices around the greens, Mainly taking putter. Don’t get me wrong I’m all about that Arnie and Jack story about putting whenever you can, but every one of those situations he chose putter and didn’t get up and down looked like a bad idea.
    It’s too bad because otherwise unlike JT rory seems in that all good things place.

    As ridiculous as the system is, the leaderboard is What it is. It is a good one but It’s obviously a good leaderboard anytime you start with the top 30; which is why it would be great to just start even and winner take all; you know…play off.

    While we wait for that, it will also be interesting to see if the lowest score can save the awkwardness by winning again like Rory last year.

    It is possible considering Some top guys have played themselves out of contention while guys lower down have played their way Im.
