How can I watch all the playoff holes again?
They’re about to start the playoffs now on the golf channel
What happened hole sudden death hole 17? Bryson hit into the water, Cantlay hit on fairway then onto green in 2. I stepped outside to check the grill figuring it was over before Bryson was hitting his 3rd from like 180 out. When I came back in they were on the 4th playoff hole so somehow they tied?!?
Did Bryson hit a beautiful 3rd and putt in for Par and Cantlay 2 putted for par?
Yeah it was a great shot, spun something back off the back left of the green to maybe 5 feet.
It was clutch for par.
I don’t know how Cantlay got “Treadstone” as his nickname but I would love if someone could tell me the origins because assuming it is referencing the CIA program that molded Jason Bourne, it’s absolutely perfect
It's from the No Laying Up guys. Neil frequently jokes how much Cantlay resembles the other Bourne assassins in both looks and demeanor, hence the Treadstone moniker.
And yes, it's a hilariously perfect nickname.
Not sure that the other Treadstone agents curled their tongue along the outside of their upper lip while murdering people though.
Thank you. Maybe my favorite nickname in all of sports right now. He really does look like Vincent Cassel’s role in Bourne Legacy with that dead looking face lol
patrick "count chocula" cantlay
Wtf happened? I got an espn alert that Bryson won, but he didn’t?
This was one of the best finishes in recent memory.
I swear I was all set to turn it off when Cantley put the ball in the water on 17 in regulation. Went and got a glass of wine, came back and they both boggied the hole. WHAT! Game on! What a great match. Can you see them paired in Ryder? Made for TV!
Amazing golf by both players. The last four holes plus the seven playoff holes were some of the most exciting golf I have ever seen. I can't recall a better back and forth between two players.
That's exactly what I was going to post, you beat me to it!
I was there today, it was madness. The surge of people rushing between 18 to 17 to 18 and so on was insane. Will be attending more events in the future for sure
Haha we kept calling it the running of the bulls. I was on the other side of 18 so couldn’t only watch 17 on the screen. Was amped that it finished on 18. That was my first golf event and sure as hell won’t be my last. Cantlay gained a fan today too.
My first event as well! Such a fun time
How annoying were all the drunk bros yelling “Brooksie!” every time Bryson took a breath?
Watch Kyle Berkshire (another monster hitter) play a round on this course just a few weeks ago:
Anyone else find themselves reading up on rule 14.2B after that last hole? 👀
Edit: Since I got down voted I’ll clarify, on the last hole Cantlay picked the ball and the caddy placed it, that’s a stroke penalty.
Anyone know why the playoff holes were 18, 18, 17, 18 etc?
Yea, I think it’s to keep the fans from running all over the course.
I think the logic is to have them finish in front of the fans, and the more they play a certain hole, the more likely they are to hit better shots.
I figured that was true for the first part, but wasnt sure why they switched to the 17th and why the pattern was inconsistent
I was working the event as a volunteer. They did 18, 18, 17, 18, 17, and 18. Would have gone back to 17 if they tied again. Logistically it made sense, as they could quickly and easily travel from the green of one hole to the tee box of the next. With them being adjacent, the crowd didn’t have far to travel. Not sure why they doubled on 18 at the beginning. And for the record, this is all speculation. I got to watch from inside the ropes on the 17th green, so I enjoyed it quite a bit. Really glad I didn’t head out and hop on the shuttle when they initially got on the green on 18 in regulation (as I’d originally planned to)
Just saw in the presser his new nickname is Patty Ice 😂
This golf course is awesome. Needs to be a regular on the schedule.
It was rough as a spectator. I’m exhausted.
My feet were as close to being on fire as possible by the time I got to my car. That was a rough day of walking. Very steep
Cantlay is so slept on.
I don't get it
Aww damn. Reed made it to next week.
He might not play
Got a lot of issues right now
What a ridiculous statement to make about someone’s health...lack of empathy
Settle down. All I agreed with was him not playing, not a death wish.
Well...wishing someone can’t play while they are hospitalized is weird on a few levels, especially during a pandemic when we’ve seen plenty of medical issues. In some cases it is a death wish.
I know it’s probably meant as a figure of speech, tongue in cheek, whatever. So it’s not a huge deal.
But I personally have just been exhausted by people showing a lack of empathy to others for the last few years. Lol...guess this is more a reflection of my own crap than your comment...still just tiring.
It’s a 100% reflection of your own crap. But all good man. and it’s just “sport hate”. Not real hate. It’s Reddit 🙂.
Damn. Really wanted Bryson to win. Oh well! In to the next.
I think Bryson has the potential to be a great putter. He’s done it before.
Putter let him down a ton in the playoff.
He is a great putter. Just didn’t have it today.
Chipping on the other hand… yikes.
He’s a great putter he needs to fix his chipping and wedge play
I think he’s on to something with his club set, but it will take some time to figure out.
I think it’s because he chips with a wedge that’s the same length as a mid iron
Wedge game is more art than science which is why he can't wrap his head around it.
He says that he can choke up on those greenside finesse shots, but I still don't see how you can get the right feel with a shaft that goddamned long. The weighting must be so weird when trying to hit, say, a soft clippy spinner with an open face out of the rough.
Lol that commercial was not well placed
Golf Reddit- I root against Bryson because he’s an ass
Also Golf Reddit- Roots like hell for Tiger, DJ(Who bangs his competitors wives.), Sergio, etc.
Atleast be consistent
I like Bryson. We aren’t all hypocrites here.
Roots like hell for Sergio? He's just marginally more liked than Patrick Reed.
Dj did what???
He’s had affairs with other pga’s players wives.
DJ banged who’s wife? I wouldn’t cheat on Paulina for anyone in the world
Sounds like you don’t know the golfers as much as you think you do.
As you get downvoted 9 times and I get upvoted 5
9 people can’t handle facts that he did it. Not my problem. Plus this place is emotional as hell lol. If I say Fuck Patrick Reed that gets 100 upvotes. If I say Rory hit a bad shot I get down voted 20. It’s all popularity here.
It was a while ago when he was a cokehead, think before Paulina.
Eh, he has been with her for a long time. You'd eventually get tired of banging anyone.
Regardless, she hasn't left him, so maybe they have an understanding about this kind of thing.
What an ending! It was great to see a visual representation of “drive for show” VS “putt for dough”. Congratulations to Patrick Cantlay, he putts under pressure better than almost any other pro I have seen.
if Bryson puts a 12 foot chip closer than 6 feet it's over thanks to the massive advantage of "drive for show" on 16.
Wow!!! What a terrific tournament. Cantlay is badass and an amazing playoff.
Just a reminder that Stewart Cink is in the Tour Championship in the year 2021
Fuck Patrick cantlay I hate him he doesn’t even have a cool hat (I’m jk)
Wow Bryson, I thought you would’ve waited until at least the next day to jump on r/golf.
You’re an idiot
I was joking
People on this subreddit are awful at detecting sarcasm
These weather people look idiotic
Imagine the mental toughness from Cantlay to be out driven by Bryson for two days and stick to your game and win. I just remembered Bryons back to back Eagles yesterday and Cantlay shook it off.
What a battle!
What did Bryson say to Cantlay on 14 today? The announcers kept going back to that…??
Cantley was walking during Bryson’s shot and told him to stop. Golf etiquette 101
Seriously. Bryson was totally justified in saying what he said
I read somewhere else that he called Cantlay out the third time he did it. Not a Bryson fan but that's pretty weak sauce by Cantlay.
I think they implied the tone and direct call out to Cantlay were slightly over the top, but I didn't catch the actual incident.
They played a clip of it. He may have been justified in saying it but he did say it with a bit of a snappy tone.
They also mentioned it did more bad than good for Bryson: broke is focus in the moment and maybe beyond. That exchange definitely felt like it okay a role in the rest of the day
He told him to stop walking. Bryson was setting up for his shot.
These guys are good.
Who's throwing money on rory next week?
If I was on fan duel then yeah I’d bet on Rory
best swing in golf
although he hasnt won a major since he stopped using Nike clubs
pretty good in fedex cup stuff though
Cantley with a lot of thank yous on his victory lap.
Man.. his putter was on fire..
Bryson ran off like he had a deuce brewing for two hrs, can only imagine how hard the struggle was
He fought well
Putting obviously hurts, but he hit several good putts that barely lipped out and made lots of birdies this week obviously
Also his up and down for par after hitting in the creek was money.
He has nothing to be ashamed of after that performance
Congrats, Bryson, you made Adam Scott look like Ben Crenshaw today with your putting.
he made a lot of putts earlier.... but just couldnt buy one in the playoff hole
Please teach me this reference iro Crenshaw
Crenshaw was a great putter. Putting is the worst part of Adam Scott's game.
I mean Bryson was burning edges all playoff...I think there are many more aspects of his game to point to which are to blame. Wedge play to start.
Not op, just giving the person the context they were looking for. I agree, he didn't get to 27 under for the tournament without putting well.
How anyone is gonna dis either of these guys’ games is beyond my comprehension. Especially when you are terrible at the sport in which they both excel beyond your wildest dreams.
A seriously amazing show those guys put on today. Reminiscent of Mickelson and Stenson's "battle" at The Open.
It's all relative tho. Ppl aren't saying I can putt better than DeChambeau, they're saying At this level of expertise, his putting is letting him down.
No one says he can’t play. You think the people who hate Tom Brady think he sucks at football?
*DeChambeau shoots -27*
r/golf: "What a loser..."
Because haters are irrational pricks.
Alright everyone, go to Paul azingers Twitter and tweet him that he's a clown!
What makes him a clown? Can we get some examples?
ill take that guy anyday
plus hes the last captain to win the ryder cup for the usa
sorry forgot about that
How many feet of putts did Cantlay pour in this week?
> He made more than 537 feet of putts this week.
> Cantlay gained 14.58 strokes on the field with his putting, the most strokes gained putting in a 72-hole event since tracking began on the PGA Tour in 2004
Going off of memory, I think they said it was somewhere around 570 feet and that was 80 more feet than the next person.
Yowzas…thank you for the info! Absolutely insane display on the greens
They said all time record for strokes gained in a week
No idea, but I know in the last couple holes alone he made something like 55 feet of 'must make' putts. And was one shy of setting the all time record for birdies in 72 holes with 31.
Absolute CLUTCH putting the last 10 holes for patty ice
New Cantlay fan checking in. That was amazing.
DeChambeau to take his revenge next weekend when he gets FedEx cup.
Here’s hoping Rory wins it next week
Is there anyone here that doesn't hate Bryson?
I don’t hate him.
For his own sake he could tone a few things down and make his path easier to win.
But he’s entertaining and watching him attack golf courses is awesome
He’s the only golfer I actively cheer for. I feel like he gets so much shit for shit other guys get a pass on. The hate he gets has made be pull for him in every tourney.
most exciting player on tour PERIOD
i was rooting for him... just couldnt make a putt late..... getting up and down out of the water was very impressive
I don't dislike him. Seems like he's rarely my favorite among those in contention though. The genius stuff gets a little annoying.
It kind of makes me hate the media more than him. He went and got a degree in physics....great, can’t hate on that. He hits it 20 yards past other long hitters...can’t hate on that either. He bulked up...can’t hate on that.
But can the media please stop acting like an undergrad physics major sent a man to Mars? And stop acting like a drive 20 yards past someone else is never coming down from the atmosphere? And stop acting like he’s Aaron Donald rushing the quarterback?
It’s the lack of originality and creativity in the media that bothers me more than Bryson (who definitely plays it all up and is dramatic in many ways).
> He went and got a degree in physics
He's a college dropout.
Didn’t know that...thought he finished.
But stopping school to play professionally isn’t quite a college dropout in that sense of the word.
Interesting to learn he didn’t finish though...so he finished like, maybe, a year of actual physics courses?!? The media just needs to move on from thay storyline and treat him on his merits, which he has plenty of.
This is how I feel. Bryson is a douche sometimes but I don't hate him.
I bought single length irons. Want to buy an evnroll putter to lock into my arm. Practice long drives at the range far more than I play golf. Have a physics bachelors. Just recently found out who Bryson is and apparently he's me just with a funky hat.
Bryson uses a SIK putter btw
Thanks Ill look into it more. I want to buy it but I also don't feel like dropping $400
EVNRolls are $400
Ya ik! Why so expensive? Any alternatives for a better price
Btw when I said $400 I meant the evnroll I haven't looked into SIK yet
My top 3 favorite players are Collin, Jordan, and Bryson
phil and bryson
Mine are Collin, Xander, Bryson.
We are in agreement here.
Yes. He's great, this weekend's performance was great, and I'm stoked to watch this guy next weekend too.
I have a lot of favorite players and bryson is near the top.
A lot of people. You're just an asshole.
How am I the asshole? haha
You mean meathead
I love the guy. Think he’s great entertainment. Went to the Toronto Maple Leafs school of closing something out today though. Tough one.
dude hit a million great drives and irons..... just couldnt make the big putt
his one bad swing .. gets up and down out of the water
This will be remembered for his missed putts.
But his chip on 17 in regulation was probably the culprit in him losing.
that was a super odd looking chip
for some reason he didnt chip all day.......... i mean ive seen him chip in .. in the past..........
he had a million chances and couldnt make the putt when he needed to
although he got up and down out of the water on 18 which was clutch
I don’t feel either way but the haters are some of the most obnoxious folks I’ve come across on Reddit.
Hating on a rival or heel is literally half of what makes most sports tick, get over it. edited heal to heel
lol you've been all over the thread simping for bryson but "don't feel either way"
Because people act like immature little pricks everytime he does anything. It makes this forum unreadable
and yet you've been here all day
That’s completely untrue. My first comment was back on hole 13 of the final group. Check your facts bud.
ahaha it was a way of saying. you frequent this sub and yet say that it's unreadable, pff
Seriously. We just watched some of the most clutch golf in years.
Good. i dont understand how you can, after just watching that, say Bryson sucks at golf. Such haters
Not one hates him because he's good at golf. They hate him for his personality, never taking responsibility for his failures, dude is full of excuses and for yelling at cameramen and arguing with rules officials. He's a great golfer, he has a shitty personality.
It’s true...I love watching him. I love his game.
I also think he’s obnoxious and probably awful to caddy for.
Those are two separate things
I’ve seen him a few times at his home club interacting with the staff and the members. He’s beyond nice. Seriously, like above and beyond with the staff. I know it doesn’t fit the narrative but that narrative doesn’t get clicks and views.
Meh. Who watches golf for the personality? lmao
Ive seen multiple people say "hes a choke artist"
Some bitch downvoted me for saying Bryson had a lot of work to do on his game. Bryson’s bitches are just like him. Bitches.
Cantlay is super average putter and putted out of his mind today. That’s not repeatable. Bryson’s game is much more complete
I hate Bryson just as much as you. But you’re stupid
I don’t hate Bryson. I said he needed to work on his game Karen.
Ok you have to be a troll. Karen doesnt even make sense in this context
Careful chief, I got my finger on the arrow
Dude that playoff was literally neck to neck
True. Reading is fundamental.
You deserve it. He was 27 under, finished 2nd against a top field, and outplayed Cantley just didn’t make crazy putts. Your comment screams of hater.
He also choked, choked, and then choked again
> and outplayed Cantley
no he didn't, mr. don't feel either way lmao
Outplayed Cantlay eh? Scoreboard says different.
Original comment was Bryson needed to work on his game. He has gaps in his game.
Drives get you laid. Putts get you paid.
Guess thats why Tiger had it both.
I think he actually had like 15 of them.
Great playoff but whos ready for next week and....
