re: Sam Burns in the lead at Riviera
Been following Sam closely since he turned pro. Just an amazing talent who hits it a mile. He only has 1 speed and it’s 100%, so you’ll see him near the top of the list in driving distance and eagles made each season. The problem area can be around the greens he gets into trouble too much. The putter has held him back this season but is usually reliable.

Here’s hoping it’s a fun weekend. He has felt the pressure many times and keeps putting himself in position which is a testament to his ability and mental game. It’s never easy to win on tour, every week there’s a DJ type player near the top. It would be a hell of an accomplishment for him to limit the mistakes this weekend and get it done

I think anything under par will be a good score for him today. Wind picking up big time.

Wow. Wind delay just as soon as Sam was about to pull the trigger on 1.

Homa with an all world eagle and DJ within 25 ft for eagle on 1

Not able to watch and just hearing of the delay. Have they said how long it’s expected to be delayed?

Anybody understand how this works between the networks? Is NBC just feasting right now off of CBS content?

It's on TGC.

Burns lead has shrunk to 3 over Speith. He obviously needs to make some birdies.

ETA: And he just hit a terrible tee shot on the par 3 6th.

But he hit an unbelievable recovery shot to 3 feet. I'll bet he could drop a small bucket of balls and not duplicate that shot. Amazing.

No kidding. He's playing steady golf & Speith just suffered back to back bogies. Nobody's really making a run at him.

With this wind if Sam plays +2 golf or better till the finish he’ll probably hold on.

It doesn't look like the winds blowing at the moment.

Tough finish considering he had a three putt and a missed green with a wedge in your hands.
