I might be alone in this but I’ve never really cared much about what athletes say in their interview. Rarely does it provide insight as most every athlete has a media personality they use.

What I find most compelling is what happens between the ropes, on the ice etc.

Nick Taylor with a nice round today (-3). He needs another one tomorrow to secure some much needed Fed Ex points.

Brooke was up by 3 most of the back nine. Steady Eddie scorecard today as well.

So there's lots of room for a run (or a collapse). Augusta is also basically a regular tour stop, so guys know the course very well. US Open courses are usually not regular PGA courses (outside Pebble Beach pretty much), and a lot more depends on the weather too, just as much as the brutal conditions. The only time major golf sucks is when it's a blowout or Patrick Reed wins. Even when it's the US Open or Open Championship and guys are struggling for pars, there's drama because the scoreboard is constantly in flux.

I think the main element that drives drama is that a collapse isn't actually necessary to have lots of movement on the back 9. You could play it safe and go birdie-par-birdie-par on 13, 14, 15, and 16 and still lose two strokes on your playing partner. Most of the other majors, four straight pars is keeping the pace. The way Augusta is set up on Sunday you're losing ground if you don't start scoring on the back. Rather than rewarding safe, consistent (aka boring) play like the US Open, it encourages players to take risks, even necessitates it, which leads to eagle chances on the Par 5s or mistakes that can lead to bogey, the combination of which means excitement down the back stretch.

Brooks is like prime Tiger in majors the last two years. What a machine.

That's gotta be one of the best rounds of major golf ever by Koepka, bogey free 63 at Bethpage is insane. And he pared both the par 5s too so it could have been even better.

Yeah they say that a tournament cant be won in the 1st round but you can lose it.

I think Koepka is testing that theory hardcore this week.

What a great golf course though. He just played a different game than anyone else this far.

Not bad for a guy who seemingly doesn't like golf a whole lot.

Well Danny Lee had a really great round yesterday with a 64....which he's now totally given back in seven holes with two bogeys and two doubles.
