I think this McBride kid is another sign of the times that dominating will become ever more difficult with more great newcomers rising to the top, and with oldies goldies still hanging around.

Pete is a solid player and made some noise at the DGPT Final last year, so no surprise to see him come out hot yesterday.

BUT...it was just one round. Bit early to make declarations about newcomers rising to the top. Lots of tournaments feature hot opening rounds by "surprising" players (or hot final rounds like Conrad's two weeks ago), the question is whether they can sustain it for the whole weekend or will it be the same old familiar faces on Sunday afternoon?

To be clear, I'm rooting for new faces. I'm just not going to count on it until it happens.

Based on the weather forecast for Sunday, I'm guessing today's round will be played like it's the final round. Should be a good round to spectate.

Dude was creepy sounding and quite boring at the same time. I did not know if I should be scared or fall asleep

Yeah I know. Was taking last years into consideration. If it hadnt been for that, one round wonders do not register that much. Usually I am just like "oh, local dude caught fire for a little bit". The ratings are of course some indication to whether that was the case or not.

That ^. Bring Terry back, I could not stand the commentary from yesterday. Nothing personal, I just like Terry's style.

So is the NH cancelled or is this an April Fools joke?

The difference is consistency. Peter isn't quite there yet, neither is Eagle. Even Nate Sexton has down moments. To win going forward, you're gonna have to have three very good rounds.

Happy April Fools everyone. In all seriousness though, it is great to be at great events with tons of great players, competing at the highest levels, in memory of great people raising money for a great cause. Best of luck to all of our competitors today and for the rest of the season.
