    Amazing Fitz-ian accomplishment.

    I still remember so many parts of watching Clarke in that 2011 Open like it was yesterday. He was so patient. When the heavy rains and wind would come he would take his time putting on his rain gear and on most shots the weather would settle down big time by the time he hit.

    That truly was one of the most clinical performance I’ve seen of how a man that age can benefit from his experience and patience.

    I’m certainly not surprised he won this… easy compared to what he did at his age in 2011.

      A better player than a lot of the stiffs you find on the LIV exhibition.

        Tom liv have almost 1/4 of the top 100 in the world. And this guy is nowhere near that.

          25 guys rated higher than 100?? Better go check that, Baxter, their rankings are dropping like rocks from a blimp. Here’s quick breakdown: Ranked in top 10 — zero; ranked in top 20: 1; ranked 21-30: 4; ranked 31-40: 3; ranked 41-50: 2; that’s 10 out of 48; More than half are ranked worse than 500, some are higher than 1,000; Pretty lame.

            It’s about that many guys inside the top 100. Maybe just short of that.
            I’m obviously talking about when guys enter LIv. Obviously their ranks are dropping…As is the value and credibility of the owgr, which has had problems to begin with.

            I heard Will Zalatoris talk about PGA Tour vs LIV and he was incredibly concise and accurate and had extensive knowledge at to what’s happening….LIV is “living” on rumors, basically.

    Cute the ball striker kid has comments. I’ll look for them. But if I was Will I’d focus on putting and winning, because both of those are still an issue.
