    Now Having watched the ceremony 3 times this story is how I learned about this.

    Picking on a legend like Gary over a leg kick is kinda a stretch. Kicks gotten a bit old but maybe mr Elder got a kick out of it.


    Btw watched cantlays 1st round 79. Painstaking. He burned every edge day 1. A lot of his putts had great chance on those fast greens. He could have so easily been 2 under thru 3.

    Then Tee shots at 4 and 8 led to bogeys. The Approach at 10 got him also.

    Beautiful up and down at 11 with putter.

    Firey frustration quietly building he makes a mess of the two water par 3 with double. Way right at 12 (as I believe you mentioned) and Chunk at 16.

    His only bad putting was at 13 with a 3 putt for par.

    Nice Birdie at 15.

    On 17 his chip from off the back checks up then Slowly rolls off the front; which he nicely got up and down.

    Just a painstaking day. I believe he lipped out a chip as well.

    From what I saw Day 2 was the opposite as cantlay was just another case of leaving everything short in the slow conditions; aka not giving putts a chance; something Tiger often struggles with for some odd reason.

      What drives me nuts with Cantlay is watching him shuffle, wiggle or whatever he’s doing with his feet before he draws the putter back…..can’t see how that helps, delays the putting stroke and the longer you stand there, well, too easy for tension to build….

        I agree. Not because it bugs you but because it hurts him some. It looks amateurish. I know because I used to do that. His wiggles have gotten shorter but he has a ways to go.

        He switched to a mallet putter this week but needs to go back to Scottie and correct things that matter; which in this case like hideki it’s being a little faster in what he does. He has a great stroke.

        Cantlay quietly runs hot under the collar, which would be fine but he is taking it to the next shot or hole lately.

        Another thing that stands out is he leaves himself above the hole a lot, especially for pars. He has beautiful motions around the greens but is not cashing in lately because he is being too aggressive.

        He is a great player and has room to grow.

          Good yes, not “great” yet….Great is reserved for Woods, Nicklaus, and all the others who have achieved so much….Great is for players who have won MULTIPLE majors and double-digit tour wins.
