Being deliberate is making sure I don’t miss information that I need to hit the right shot.” Increased visibility and TV time for players like Day and Jordan Spieth can add additional pressure and scrutiny when it comes to maintaining a reasonable pace of play, but Day is determined to stay in his routine. “Last year, I felt that I had a lot more peer pressure, and I’m like, ‘I’ve got to speed up play,’" he said.
Adam Scott is enjoying a good start to his 2017. Adam Scott is making his 2017 PGA Tour debut this week at the Genesis Open, but he’s already thinking about his schedule come late summer, when he might be taking a week off during the FedEx Cup playoffs. Scott and his wife, Marie, are expecting their second child in August, and the delivery may coincide with The Northern Trust, formerly known as The Barclays and the first event of the PGA Tour’s postseason.
Dustin Johnson had a mid-February 9 p.m. ET tee time as Round 3 at the Genesis Open tried to sneak in on Saturday. I bet that’s never happened to him before. He never saw the first tee for his third round, though, as play was suspended for darkness just as he was about to get underway at Riviera Country Club. Because of heavy rain, fog and wind in the first two days, Round 2 did not wrap up until late on Saturday afternoon. Then the cut was made and golfers were resorted before being sent back on the course to try and get at least a few holes in before Sunday’s marathon finish. Most did, but Johnson was not among them.
