    Absolutely unreal by him today, the round could easily have slipped away and the head dropped. Kept in there and very likely get his reward with some weekend golf at Augusta.

    Great stuff by him to stay patient and bring that back. Making the cut on your first Masters is excellent. I think he's been playing very cautiously by his standards, leaving a lot of putts on the short side and laying up when in doubt. Wouldn't be surprised to see him get a bit more aggressive tomorrow.

    Absolutely fantastic last 6 holes from Seamus, for a few years he has been close but elite golf is so tough and when one does not have a schedule it is nearly impossible. The ability to have a schedule this year and next, will imho give him a really good chance of making the Ryder Cup.

    He will easily make the cut with the wind getting up & the green drying out, the top 16 get in for next year so by the end of the day he is likely to be only 3 shots off that mark with an early start tomorrow, it is all good.

    Nothing more predictable than that you would be in with a classless gloat. 😄

    especially for a player "completely out of his depth" . Looks like he will be around for the weekend unlike some big names.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,198 ✭✭✭ abff


    Yes, you have to hand it to him. Barring a very unusual change in the weather, I think that pretty much guarantees him making the cut.

    Great effort by Seamus to make the weekend considering he was facing into the back 9 not having had a birdie in the tournament yet.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,407 ✭✭✭ Motivator


    What a great back 9 from Seamus today, when the chips were down he got aggressive and it paid off. He was probably a bit too tentative yesterday, I don’t think he took on any par 5 but he can flake away over the next two days now and enjoy himself.

    He’ll be inside the top 40 in the world come Monday morning and more Fedex points coming his way. A great achievement and I’m absolutely delighted for him. It was a struggle for him today and it looked to be slipping away from him. His face on 12 when he thought he had the ball stitched to the hole said it all. I’d say he was thinking what did he have to do to get a break but he played very well coming home.

    It was well deserved after the dig at Seamus, personal insults towards me, fairy stories, and apparent complete lack of golfing knowledge.

    Seamus just hit the pin with his second at the par 5 2nd. It was fairly travelling though and he ended up 50 feet away.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,887 ✭✭✭ PokeHerKing


    Hes really butchered the par 5s from great positions today. Pity could have put himself right up the leaderboard.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,424 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    One birdie from 10 attempts at reachable par 5's is really holding him back



  • Registered Users Posts: 224 ✭✭ Scrabbel


    Great chip and run birdie on 18 for another 74. That may not look too bad at all today with the wind the way it is.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,198 ✭✭✭ abff


    Whatever way you look at it, it’s another few world ranking points for Seamus and, apart from being his first chance to experience what it’s like playing in a major, it will improve his chances of playing in the next one.



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,300 ✭✭✭✭ PARlance


    They're hardly going to start testing him at this stage.

    Well done Seamus, rather than being out of his depth, he was thrown in at the deep end and survived. A learning experience for him and a few more.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,424 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    He’s shown that he can mix it in that company now. His showing against Scheffler in the match play where he was still tied going down 12 having gone toe to toe from the start looks even better in hindsight.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,424 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    Final round 70 and level par for the weekend. Currently T-26 but that will probably drop a few places.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,439 ✭✭✭ Mysterypunter


    Seamus did ok, especially for his first Major



  • Registered Users Posts: 224 ✭✭ Scrabbel


    Didn’t want to say this until now but to have nothing worse than bogey in all 4 rounds on a Masters debut is outstanding stuff. Could even sneak into Top 25 at +4. Fantastic week’s work.

    Great show from Seamus. Drove beautifully the last two rounds and finally found a spark to break par. He can look forward to the rest of the season with relish...as can we. 🙂



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,402 ✭✭✭✭ Mushy


    Delighted he got a round under par, give him more confidence for the season. A commendable debut, so consistent



  • Registered Users Posts: 825 ✭✭✭ OEP


    You could see on the first two days that he didn't have a hang of the greens. He was really struggling to land it in the right places, he's usually so good with his approach shots.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,407 ✭✭✭ Motivator


    What a four days for him and it could and should have been so much better. I genuinely lost count of how many birdie putts slipped by over the four days. The mistakes he made were fractional as well. No double bogeys either despite very difficult conditions for the first 3 days.

    A magnificent performance from the man and if he continues to play like this he’s going to contend soon. I know he’ll finish a long way off whatever the winning score will be, but the score doesn’t tell the true story of his four days. I’m delighted for him and I’d say when the updated rankings are posted we’ll see him inside the top 40 in the OWGR.



  • Registered Users Posts: 833 ✭✭✭ Green Peter


    Well done Seamus, well worth your place in the field and a great preformance. Get back there next year and give it a real rattle.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,198 ✭✭✭ abff


    Seamus has moved up one place to 40th in this week’s world rankings.



  • Registered Users Posts: 392 ✭✭ Lad GAGA


    Didn't see any footage of Seamus but delighted he made the cut in the first instance and then to have an under par final round will give him a lot of confidence going forward. No double bogeys at Augusta for 4 days is some achievement even Scheffler didn't manage that. Hopefully he can keep this good form going into the coming months.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,492 ✭✭✭ RoadRunner


    Great that Player and Caddie got 4 masters competition rounds under their belt. Valuable experience in that will stand to them, hopefully next year.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,424 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    Just had a quick look there at the fedex rankings and Seamus in 19th has accumulated more points now than for the full 2021 season. Given he finished 72nd last year just missing out on the BMW, it looks like he will be competing there this year and hopefully looking to keep his place in the top 30 although that would be a huge accomplishment

    Seamus back in action today at the Wells Fargo, starts with a level par round.
