I tried to watch some of the Tour Championship today but with playoff chases in baseball, some decent college football games and those Web.com Tour-sized galleries splattered amidst that distance-diffusing East Lake setup (a 16-yard wide landing area?), the ResetCup was relegated to a distant third on my priority viewing list.
Even then, I tended to land on a commercial break whenever I flipped over.
The Ryder Cup can't come soon enough.
Because as Mark Lamport-Stokes reports, Captain Davis Love's selection Brandt Snedeker is playing super heading into the Ryder Cup and even has a chance to win $10 million Sunday.
Snedeker described his third-round 64 in breezy conditions on a fast-running layout as one of his best displays this year and he has targeted something similar for Sunday.
"I actually won't look at the leaderboard all day," he said with a smile.
Don't worry Brandt, all you'd miss are a lot of ads and recognitions of the host pro, The First Tee and high fructose-laden corn syrup soda pop.
"My goal tomorrow is to shoot as low as I possibly can. If that's 63, it's 63. If it's 72, it's 72.
"Whatever it is, it's going to be everything I've got on that golf course tomorrow. The biggest thing tomorrow is going to be how patient you can stay because this golf course eats guys up that don't stay patient."
Or find those under-20 yard wide strips called fairways!
The PGA Tour's highlights:
For fans of Gary Van Sickle's proposed aggregate stroke play for the playoffs, I've updated the scores of the only remaining contenders based on Jim McCabe's item from after the BMW Championship. So here are the scores heading in, with this week's scores in parentheses and the overall total. As it should be, Rory McIlroy has opened a commanding lead. It wouldn't make for exciting viewing but it would also be a win free of resets and based on a playoff consistency.
Rory McIlroy, 41 under (-5) -46
Tiger Woods, 34 under (-4) -38
Dustin Johnson, 36 under (-1) -37
Louis Oosthuizen, 34 under (E) -34
Brandt Snedeker, 25 under (-8) -33
Ryan Moore, 24 under (-6) -30
Phil Mickelson, 31 under (+2) -29
Oh and Luke Donald hit a super second shot at 14 Saturday, thankfully posted on YouTube so we can see it:
