2017 Green Mountain Championship
 
Looks like live coverage for rounds 2-4. Who ya got? I've gotten two in a row with McB at PFDO and Ricky at Vibram, so whoever I pick this week is sure to lose, lol...



...Nate Sexton

Any word on who is filming the first round and which card(s)?...

Live scoring is up for a few cards. McBeth tees off at 930.

Streets 09-13-2017 10:39 AM

Bradley Williams

McB and Barsby did a pretty good job of crushing the front 9 of Brewster...

Mocheez 09-13-2017 12:23 PM

Lizotte is due for a win.

brutalbrutus 09-13-2017 12:50 PM

Looks like I nice'd them. Combined -2 on the first five holes of the back9

Shamis 09-13-2017 12:53 PM

Wish i was in vermont right now. Those courses are so much fun, and stowe is over flowing with awesome beer.

It's interesting when comparing Eric and McBeths round - they birdied opposite holes on the back 9 and missed birdies opposite of each other on the front. Course looks primed for someone to shoot a -15 or better this weekend.

How does Udisc calculate the throw-in distance? Do the players record that? Schusterick has throw-ins from 66, 76, 80, 76, and 82 feet.

Thats because his shoulder impingement doesn't bother him at that distance. Since he refused to take time off to rest it, he just stays outside of normal putting shoulder rotation distance now. His logic being he's a 1050 rated player from 65+ and a 950 rated player inside of that. Hence his playing golf right around 1000 this year.

What happened/is going on with Don Smith?

Nate Doss just tied him, they both have the new course record now. Doss had it before at -12 48. Cale and Oakley tied that today. Pretty awesome to see so many good scores in the top ~15 right now.

Talked to UDisc, they said there were two bad scorekeepers out there who are getting retrained if they volunteer again tomorrow. There were similar errors on quite a few other MPO and FPO players' scorecards too.

Flick Maniac 09-14-2017 01:50 AM

Perhaps a nicer way to put it to guarantee that volunteers show up in the future too would be to say that the instructions to the scorekeepers were not as clear as possible and that they would look into improving the instructions for tomorrow?

Not that I have any insight to how it went down but that "bad scorekeepers" bit really had a bad ring to it...

New013 09-14-2017 02:57 AM

Do they need to go to a safe space free of being told they were ****ty at keeping score?

Flick Maniac 09-14-2017 06:39 AM

Do you think people need to be publicly reprimanded by doing a voluntary job poorly likely out of not understanding the instructions and not out of malice?

I dont know about you but I have been taught for years that give praise publicly and criticism privately if you want to be at all successful in supervising anyone.

lyleoross 09-14-2017 08:32 AM

We tend to hire managers who are vocal and harsh, criticizing more than complementing because we think it's effective. It's not. Just like grandma told you, you get more flies with honey.

ScottyLove 09-14-2017 10:14 AM

I really thought Nikko has something going after starting with 6 straight birds, but alas... it appears his noggin' got in the way of the rest of his round.

I don't understand why he doesn't just switch to spin putting. It'd get away from the up and down putting motion and instead be more lateral motion, much like driving.

I've not had an impingement issue, but I had to shut things down last fall when i tore a rotator cuff muscle (Supraspinatus to be exact). I had more trouble getting my putting motion back than my backhand, by far. I had to switch to a pitch putting style, away from the spin putting I was using and definitely prefer. I'm back to spin putting now, but it's taken a long time to get there-almost a year. Shoulder injuries are tricky. It's an extremely mobile joint with a lot of connections that need to be in balance.

As I understand it from what others have said here, the impingement issue comes into play with the pitch putt motion, right where he's bringing his arm up to shoulder height. Which is why I'm surprised he hasn't done like you and change his putting motion up as well while recovering.

SeveN 09-14-2017 02:04 PM

I'm sure Schusterick tried all variations of putts to see which ones hurt his shoulder the least. If he's not spin putting, I would bet it hurts him just as much. Maybe applying forward force on the putter uses too much of his shoulder and arm (when facing the basket and spin putting)....it's not really a motion thats similar to the backhand drive.

Back to the topic though: Come on McBeast!!!!!!

the_lung 09-14-2017 03:45 PM

Grady Shue aces the 305' uphill hole#3!!! :eek:

lyleoross 09-14-2017 05:31 PM

Has anyone heard anything about McBeth? He's playing like a rookie. Guessing he's hurt himself in the earlier rain.

SeveN 09-14-2017 05:45 PM

D'oh....I think I jinxed him. He DNF'ed I think cause of his back....

lyleoross 09-14-2017 05:50 PM

I'm watching this on YouTube and there are several posters there taking glee in his injury. Are we really that childish?

the_lung 09-14-2017 05:54 PM

"The Witness" Jeremy Koling in the clubhouse with the current hot round of the day of 51, 11 under par, unofficially rated at 1070! :eek:

Sadly, a lot of people are. Seems to be the trend these days in all walks. People don't root for their favorites so much as root against everyone else, and get enjoyment out of everyone else failing more than their favorite succeeding.

Actually said he hurt it during round one but thought it would be fine. Got worse today, and I'm sure the rain didn't help.

DiscJunkie 09-14-2017 09:04 PM

Hate to see anyone get injured.
Paul or Ricky or Will.
While an injury to me is an inconvenience, I can still go to work and do my job, to an athlete it can be devastating.
No joy in that.
Best wishes.
Heal up and attack USDGC!

Just watched round one and I forget the hole but he throws big uphill backhand approach from a muddy lie and he looks like he grimaces after

Sadly, I suspect you're correct. How :sick: pathetic.

I might have cracked a joke about Hannah being too rough on him, but it wasn't malicious.

Streets 09-14-2017 10:16 PM

Can't wait for Round 2 from Jomez!

These comments were overboard. I read yours, well within bounds.

texasissouth 09-14-2017 11:22 PM

Watched round one and Paul seemed pretty limber through the whole round, even with that one miracle putt. Was that grimace on hole 8? His shot off the fairway was weird and then he followed it up by immediately shanking hole 9. Who knows though, a lot of injuries won't be unbearable until the next day. And I'm sure with him playing basically a whole season hurt he understands the importance of rest and not aggravating injuries
