More bromance!

I thought they weren’t into fist-bumping?

Aside from the crappy weather and delays — which we’re pretty used to this year on the PGA Tour — this Presidents Cup is much more intriguing than most expected. We thought it’d just be another American blowout, like every other year, except 1998 when the Internationals captured their lone win.

While there are four matches in the Friday foursomes sessions still in progress, the first two were completed, with the Americans and Internationals each securing a point. The score currently stands with U.S. 4.5, International 3.5.

Lindsey Vonn and former President George W. Bush on the first tee

Well, so much for that fast start the International team needed in Thursday’s four-ball matches! When play was suspended at 2:38pm due to inclement weather in the area, the Americans were up in five matches and all square in one of them. Not surprising.

I know THERE’S A LOT OF GOLF LEFT, but the Internationals have fared decently in the four-ball format in past Presidents Cups, while they’ve struggled tremendously in the foursomes (alternate shot).

thursday's pairings

Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to watching the power duo of Jason Day and Graham DeLaet play together and the South African pair of Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, who also have two of the best swings in the game, along with the ballstriking clinic Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama will probably put on, but as a colleague summed it up, “Yeah, but who cares?”

I share some behind-the-scenes nuggets in the video above. I have more info and quotes on the topics I mentioned, but I’ll have to update this post with them later since I’m about to miss the last shuttle to the parking lot!

It was a productive day at East Lake, but for now, here’s a mini Q&A I did with Jordan Spieth (after stalking running him down in the parking lot) — it’s hard to believe he just turned 20 the other month — it’s like he’s 20 going on 35.

Welcome to a very special edition of The Clubhouse! Luke Elvy and I talk Masters nonstop for nearly 35 minutes! We chat about Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy, along with our favorites and dark horses for the week.

Thanks as always for asking questions. Sorry I didn’t see the ones on my YouTube page until just now — I’ll be sure to look out for them next time (tomorrow).

Pictured: sand.

Still air, sky-high temperatures and soft conditions appear to have a knack for producing low, low scoring. Who knew?

The first round of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China, held this year on Mission Hills’ Olazabal layout (the positively sprawling venue now boasts of 12 “championship” designs and a further 180 holes), yielded two rounds of 65, four of 66 and a further 20 that dipped below the (nominal) par of 72.

Not bad for a shortened field, even if it is one populated almost exclusively by the best and brightest of world golf (no Tiger or Rory, though: they’re the subjects of *sigh* another appearance fee controversy!).

Oosty ousts Rory in this race

In case you missed it, I wrote a story on Golf.com last week (earlier this week, whatever) on the battle for the purest swing in golf between Rory McIlroy and Louis Oosthuizen, who were paired together for two straight days at the Deustche Bank Championship.

Tasty!

Following his second-career major title at last month’s PGA Championship, Rory McIlroy didn’t waste much time to find his way back to the winner’s circle. Just twenty-two days after hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy in Kiawah Island, McIlroy overcame a three-shot deficit early in Monday’s final round at the Deustche Bank Championship and held on to capture his third victory on the PGA Tour this season.

Lou-Ry

Louis Oosthuizen put on a clinic in Sunday’s third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. He set several new tournament records, including posting the lowest 54-hole total (19-under), making the most consecutive birdies (seven), and carding the lowest score on the front nine at TPC Boston (29).

At one point, Oosthuizen was cruising a la the Open Championship at St. Andrews in 2010, where he won by a decisive seven strokes. At one point here in the present day, Louis led by seven shots over Rory McIlroy, who recently won the PGA Championship, his second-career major, at Kiawah Island.

The shot of the day goes to Nick Watney, who carded the rare albatross. Watney hit a 5-iron from 190 yards on the par-5 17th and watched in roll in the hole. He followed it up with a celebration for the ages (or one that matched someone named “Peter Oosthuizen” at the Masters earlier this year).
