    I am not the only one on here whose opinion differs to yours ,it is a forum it is what we do.
    Dress it up however you like but in my opinion the featured group played some poor golf and as said earlier it makes a change to see a tough exam paper .
    IMO off course.
    There was no point calm yourself down dear

    It’s quite clear when looking beyond just the featured group that many people have struggled today with the course , average score today after the storms they had is about 5 over , the wind is getting up and the course is drying out , the weather forecast is for sun and wind , only going to make it harder over the coming days.

    When you watch Marshall’s struggle to walk through the second cut because it’s that tall and thick and you see some of the strongest players struggle to get it out of first cut more than 10 yards then something doesn’t seem right

    If you enjoy it then crack on -I would just like to see it a touch more fairer especially the rough, but I just gave an opinion that was also shared by others - no one said we were right it was just an opinion

    And the USGA have a history of wanting high scores but getting it wrong and going too penal

    You must be trolling surely

    Course looks so tough from TV, loads of tee shots you are hitting into blind fairways from awkward angles, miss it by a bit and you in deep thick fescue that you can’t even see your ball in. Then hitting onto greens that are faster than anything you ever played before and holes on slopes then endless false parts of greens that ball just run off

    This seems the "go to" reply when someone questions anything or disagrees with the majority on here, come on, be original and not a sheep.

    What point are you trying to make?

    The poayers arent playing bad on purpose, the scores are clearly bad so it must be pretty tough?

    Not like we got a bad bunch of players this era

    If you read his previous posts he clearly states “he’s new to Golf”, so he’ll only see what his limited experience of playing & watching Golf is offering him, which as he states, is only the wind.

    People are too quick at times to throw out the “trolling card”.
