    Much like Adam Scott, Bernhard Langer and a few others Si Woo Kim should have been called for anchoring that broomstick he was using. Why these players are getting away with this is beyond me.

      They’ve shown Langer up close many times and it’s not touching his chest….same with Scott, they basically try and keep their left arm against their left side….I think it’s pretty difficult and as we’ve seen, Scott and Kim can struggle with it….

        I can agree that Scott seems to have the hand away from his chest, Langer not so much especially near the end of the event when the putts become critical he is definately anchoring. I’ve followed him in a Champions event standing quite close and he is anchoring.

          I’ve watched Champions events where they’ve zoomed in really close on him and there’s space….sometimes hard to tell if the shirt is loose and wind is blowing it….given it’s a game where players call infractions on themselves, well, someone, somewhere would have pointed it out plus officials have all the access to the TV closeups…..there are a bunch that agree with you but it’s nearly impossible to tell unless you were standing in very very close proximity on the green with him…

    This was and will be a blow out, the Internationals never stood a chance. They will try their best but they are out manned and out gunned.

      I think the really cool moment so far was Max Homa making the 13-footer at 17 to go one-up then draining the 11-footer at 18 for the full point…..he had the entire team watching him their on 18, he pointed out how he had 10 incredible players watching him and he wanted to do something “for them.” The matches on Friday were much more competitive than on Thursday. It was supposed to be a blowout….US has a LOT of firepower…..
