Odd to see him registered, is he not supposed to do commentary?

And IF he will be playing, how did he qualify?

No one knows for sure. Presumably he's registered because he wants to try to play full rounds, but that was the story last year and he pulled out late (as I recall, it was Monday of tournament week that he withdrew). We'll find out on Wednesday, I guess.

It would be a nice tradition, in the vein of the ball golf Masters Tournament, to have older past champions make ceremonial first throws at the USDGC.

Well, now we have our answer regarding Climo...

Climo Returns to USDGC for Round 1

He's planning to play the first round, then be in the booth commentating on the live coverage for rounds 2 through 4.

I read this in Barsby's Champ voice in my head.

I get the sentimentality aspect, but is it not also kinda weak to take up a spot when you don't intend to finish the tournament?

Seems selfish to use your lifetime invitee status to deprive a more active player a chance to compete; one who would surely give it everything they had instead of calling it quits after 1 round.

I'd rather see some sort of ceremonial showcase for former champions who don't otherwise qualify.

I don't think he is "taking anyone's spot" in the tournament. If he decided not to register then its not like they would open up more spots for someone else to register.

I wonder if he will have second thoughts about commentating if he is on lead card after round 1...
