What's he done?
McIlroy drove into the drink but there was a bunker in between with about 3’ of flat dropping down to the lakeside, half way down there was a red penalty line.
Everyone was in agreement that he’d dropped correctly but not Speith who from 300 odd yds away with his super human vision was arguing the toss where the point of entry was and the bounce.
Took nearly ten minutes for him to finally wind his neck in!

Thanks, that sounded a bit spicy, I wonder why he was wanting to pursue that. Sounds like Rory had a cracking round today

With a bogey and a double, shooting 7 under is some score.

Rory seems like he's not too bothered about it all reading his interview from after the round, although I think its a bit funny Spieth hasn't spoken to the media.

Sore loser as he wasn't having a great day.

Yeah he played great yesterday.

Clark on the 18th though...how close could you get.
Looked a bit like he was fighting his woods a bit yesterday, perhaps laying back and leaving himself an extra 25/30 yards into 18th green (compared to Scheffler) meant his proximity was a bit worse and had to give the putt a good run. A shorter iron in might have equalled a 15 footer rather than a 30 footer. I dunno, all very small margins.

Hell of a tournament; the PGA has needed that finish all season long cos it's been a bit meh thus far. And don't forget, Talor Gooch wasn't in the field ;)

Fancy Matsuyama. Been playing well last few weeks and won recently. Previous winner so has previous experience.

Based on nothing but just liking him I have a feeling Fowler might have a decent weekend. 125/1 which is value at e/w as some are paying out top 10. Or they were.

Can't see passed Scheffler to be honest, he's too good and in great form.

Would obviously love Rory to do it but that's a bit like supporting Spurs. The expectations are high but holy fuck

Just starting to play himself into some form. Good shout each way few years ago he would of been in top 4 or 5 favourites.
It be interesting to see how the LIV players will do as dn't follow it.
Be hard to go against Scheffler but no way i touch him at 7/2 terrible odds

Hard to look past Scottie at the moment really with the form he's in. Would like to see Aberg put in a good showing and Wyndam Clark has been in good touch. Outside bet for me for is Nick Taylor. All that said, c'mon Rory!
