This is so awesome.

I like golf. I watch golf. I watched none of this. It just didn’t feel right as an Olypmics sport to me.
This just in. Jordan Spieth is good at golf.
I still am bummed that Tiger’s dominance ended so abruptly.
Lydia Ko is awesome. It’s going to be fun watching her grow as a player over the next few years.
I might be in the minority, but I think is cool. I really am hoping Tiger wins this.
I am rooting hard for Clemson’s original golf superstar to have a long career in women’s golf.
I know I’m probably in the minority, but I want Tiger Woods to be good again.
What a bummer. Hopefully, it doesn’t have a long term impact on his career.
After being at this tournament for so many years, it was weird to watch it on television. That said, no one was catching Rory this weekend.
Great win for Rickie, and a great end to the tournament. I wish more tournaments could have this level of excitement.
Summary: A reporter used Periscope to broadcast part of a practice round she was following. The PGA revokes her media credentials the next day.
Also, this money quote from PGA Tour EVP of Communications Ty Votaw:
“Who owns those rights? We do, not you. If you want access to those rights, you have to pay for it. When [the reporter] posts unauthorized videos, she’s stealing. I don’t understand how you can’t get that through your head.”
The PGA Tour has been brain dead about mobile phone and camera use during its game for years. It’s not surprising that they are way behind the curve for something as cutting edge as Periscope, either.
As it stands, golf is dying as a sport that people watch and play. Instead of trying to think of creative ways to expose people to the game, the PGA Tour continues to act like a bunch of old, uninformed luddites and push people further way from the game. As someone who enjoys golf, it’s really, really disappointing.
Good for Paula. I’m in her camp on this one.
Rory is good at golf.
Still my favorite LPGA golfer.
Ko turning pro was a complete no brainer. I am glad the LPGA gave her the waiver to let her join the tour even though she is only 16.
Yes, I know it is just a gimmick, but I still think it’s pretty cool.
Jason Dufner is amazing.
Though I will miss seeing Phil play as much as he has in the past, I am rooting for him to win the U.S. Open this year. I hope this schedule reduction helps him do that.
Jim Furyk posted the sixth round of 59 in the history of the PGA Tour, making a birdie on his final hole to shoot 12-under at the BMW Championship.
This almost makes me forget about how long it takes him over a putt. Almost.
