Does anyone know Craigie Hill in Perth?  A couple of friends playing there today, probably will go along but not played for a while and surely a course in Perth will be destroyed after the rain?  Is it on the side of a hill?  Plus only 15 quid which seems very cheap, the sort of price you'd charge if your course was a swamp currently.

Martin Laird.

Out of nowhere tbh, I was looking at the Scots on the OWGR just last week and saw he was way down at 350th or something.

Laird has had a poor time of late. He also had knee surgery earlier in the year. Good to see him hitting it well again. He’s a previous winner of this event way back in 2009. His last win was the Valero Open in 2013. Good luck to him over the weekend. He played beautifully yesterday.

Had another trackman session today, focus was club path and attack angle. Was having a slight issue with hitting down on the driver but the lesson seemed to have laid off!

Bloody love trackman ..... when I’m swinging well not so much when I’m toiling 🤣

Think I've said this before on here. But all of the talk about drivers, technology and distance. They can talk all they want about rollsbacks etc but by far the biggest advance in golf since the prov1, is trackman/GCQuad. It's possibly even more important as even with older balls fitters could change shafts etc to optimise players launch conditions and dispersion patters.

Also, fitzpatricks comments overnight are pretty ridiculous and seems the headlines hurt him today.

I like it because it helps me understand what I’m trying to achieve rather than people just telling me... my issue for the last week was spin rate which was generated by my angle of attack, I was hitting down creating more side spin which creates a slice! I managed to get it down from 5000+ to 2000/2500 which has given me more distance, better flight and more distance.

My instructor broke it down from 50 yards to full swing and he worked out I was far to steep into my down swing... my mates give me it tight about getting lessons but it’s really paying off!

Some bonkers scoring at the Shriners. DeChambeau was in the 3rd last group to tee off, he's plus 1 for the day and finds himself way down in T37th on -12, that's after picking up 4 shots after going +5 for the first 6 holes.

Laird still right up there.

Another good day for Laird. 20 under for 3 rounds and tied for the lead going into the final round.

I didn't see the back nine but he looked like he was hitting the ball well. Holed a cracking putt for an Eagle on the 9th as well.
