Both of you are correct.

I just watched all the coverage I could find, a little late. And WOW! This game is cruel! I haven't even been playing 6 months yet, and I feel that pain. My heart breaks for JohnE, that was painful to watch, also that playoff. I guess it goes to show, don't ever give up, it's not over until it's over.

I had an experience like that today, I was playing with people way better and way more experienced than me, I had a 3 stroke lead going into 12, and got a triple bogey, then missed 3 birdie chances, got 2 more bogies, and ended last on the card. Lesson learned: when your ahead take the stupid lay up.

I love watching these videos. Picking up so much. I hope I can play in the USDGC someday.

^ You're actually better than you thought.
Now you just need some more tourney experience to hone your mental game, and course management.

Thanks man, I already know I'm way ahead of where anyone expects me to be. As long as I'm still learning, still improving I'm happy.
JohnE though, did you watch it? He sunk a 300' skip shot, and then went on a birdie spree, coming out way in front. But then took a 9 on 17, and went OB in the playoff.

Yea, I was able to watch a lot of it live, including his big birdie, and heart breaking collapse. This year had a ton of emotion and drama.
