Not looking good for Simon and Eagle, already 10 behind Conrad. Ricky and Nate struggling today as well, only -2/-3 under today so far.

Jalle Stoor jumped 84 places up today! Currently 15th with -11, not too many players behind who could jump ahead today. Nice to see him doing well after not so great performances this season.

Your sole focus at majors should be winning.

Must be some real incentive for Nate and Jerm to do the commentary. Thinking about other people’s shots on yesterday’s course, when you’re about to play for a world championship seems like too much of a distraction. Got to keep your head in the game.

Ricky heating up? He's birdied 4 of the last 5 holes from more than 38ft.

Jerm & Nate's schedule is that they do commentary in the morning before their round. This isn't distracting at all for them. In fact, it may actually take their mind off of their own game while they wait to tee. What else are they gonna do?

And why do they do it??? Money & notoriety. Both players have a Patreon that makes them money for every round they commentate. Sexton is at about $190 per 18, and Jerm at $130. On top of branding themselves and being able to sell BigSexy discs.

It doesn't hurt that they are good at it as well.

On the flip side, they might see shots and/or placements they wouldn't otherwise see if they were just hanging out during this spare time. I would say they're keeping their heads in the game more than those that aren't watching how others are playing/have played the courses during this year's rounds.
