Stephan Jaeger speaks like another person who has golfing figured out. And in a way he does. As winner of the Korn Ferry frequent-time points rankings, Jaeger barely struggles with a game that frustrates so lots of.
“There’s not a lot of browsing. I just know what I have to have to do,” Jaeger reported at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, exactly where Friday he managed his share of the guide with David Lipsky. Each players are 10-beneath par and atop the leaderboard by 1 shot getting into Saturday’s 3rd spherical at the Ohio State Scarlet Study course.
No golf video game is perfect, so Jaeger was off to the vary subsequent a 2-underneath-par 69 that was 6 shots even worse than his opening-round 63. Lipsky also shot 63-69. Defending champion Curtis Luck was tied with 6 other golfers at nine-underneath.
“It’s just form of carrying out the exact matter above and about and observing great effects,” Jaeger reported of why his self-confidence amount is sky significant. “A perfect case in point today, just mainly because I failed to genuinely hit it that excellent or putt any good does not necessarily mean I’m going to lose assurance. I know what I’m doing, and some times you just study the greens the right way and have the right pace, and sometimes you really don’t.”
In other words, rely on your self.
Or have confidence in your driver, even when it’s not the a single you love. After cracking the face on his Callaway Maverick driver on his final hole on Thursday, Lipsky turned to Jon Bower, his former higher education roommate at Northwestern who life in Higher Arlington. Bower drove household and returned with an additional driver that Lipsky could use on Friday, but it was a no-go.
“It only took him 1 swing and ‘nope,’” explained Lipsky’s swing coach, Adam Schriber.
Bower then drove to Legitimate Spec Golfing, a club-fitting keep in Columbus, and arrived back with a demo driver that Lipsky utilised for his 2nd 18 holes.
“Better than hitting 3-wooden,” Lipsky explained of the stand-in driver. “It was good enough to get a couple under today.”
Former Buckeyes make the minimize

“I did not hit it incredibly perfectly,” Armour explained of his even-par spherical, which tied him for 27th. The top 25 gamers right after the a few-even Finals concludes subsequent week generate PGA Tour playing cards. “Whatever comes about, transpires. The target is always to acquire a golf tournament. You have got to determine a way to get four rounds alongside one another and ideally this is the worst of my four.”
Hoag was not bothered by greens that have been unusually gradual for this time of yr.
“I’ve viewed this put with every single sort of issue there is,” he reported. “We’ll see what we acquired and go from there. There’s undoubtedly some holes out in this article exactly where you know a very good shot is likely to be 30 ft (from the gap). Other periods you can be very aggressive.”
