Each night during a PGA Championship, writers, producers and editors from a Sports Illustrated Golf Group give their opinions on a prohibited subject of a day during Baltusrol. Agree with a takes? Disagree? Tweet us your thoughts during @golf_com.

Phil Mickelson pronounced after his Saturday turn that with a soothing conditions and par-70 course, we’ll see a 61 or 62 this weekend. If that does happen, on what will be a jam-packed course, will it lessen a stress of what would be a ancestral round?

Peter Madden, comparison producer, GOLF.com: Haven’t we schooled anything from baseball? Asterisks are annoying. A 62 is a 62.

Jeff Ritter, digital growth editor, GOLF.com: I consider it’s reduction about a soothing march and some-more about who shoots it and when. No offense to Robert Streb, yet if he shot 62 yesterday that series would never again meant utterly as many as it would if Phil or Stenson shot it during Troon. If a record falls this week, I’d like to see it go to a tip actor in a large moment.

Alan Shipnuck, comparison writer, Sports Illustrated: I say, meh. A soothing march with no zephyr is cake for these guys. This whole thing feels like a New Jersey Open, not a vital championship.

Mark Godich, comparison editor, Sports Illustrated: Nope. But it ain’t function anyway. No approach anybody goes that low after 86 players penetrate their heels into these marshmallow-soft greens. Too bad a PGA didn’t have a foreknowledge to pull adult tee times today. Then we competence have something improved to speak about, like a record-setting 62. Now a devise is to squeeze a absurd volume of golf into one day, presumption a continue binds (and all indications are it won’t). New Jersey Open is right, Alan.

Michael Bamberger, comparison writer, Sports Illustrated: Of a several 59s, a many stirring and best was Al Geiberger’s in  1977, even yet it was lift, purify and place, that he took advantage of usually once or twice. First is first. we don’t consider it will occur here, yet if it does it is an implausible achievement. Very tough to do it though a spook on your card. Very tough to play Baltusrol though a spook on your card. 

Jessica Marksbury, digital editor, GOLF.com: No way! A 62 stands on a own, soothing conditions or not.

Peter Bukowski, associate editor, GOLF.com: Weather happens. That’s partial of a diversion and this won’t even be a initial rain-soaked vital this deteriorate many reduction in history. You still have to go out and fire a number. All that being said, doesn’t seem like a sleet is going to moderate adequate to ever give us a form of conditions to furnish a 62 simply since it’s expected to be stormy and soppy not usually soft.

Gary Van Sickle, comparison writer, Sports Illustrated: A 62 is a 62. No one remembers or cares that Al Geiberger’s ancestral 59 was played in Memphis with lift-clean-and-place manners in effect. Why? Because it was a 59! Ditto for a 62 or 61 here. It’s still a 62 in a story book. Nobody asks how.

Sean Steinemann, amicable media editor, GOLF.com: I consider a usually approach a 62 this week stays ancestral is if they play a turn down. Allowing for lift, clean and place would make it nothing and blank and my eyes. 

Sean Zak, partner editor, GOLF.com: I’d contend no. Aside from it softening a greens, it’ll be tough for these players to play an whole 18 holes though a check going forward, that would supplement a legitimate fold into any widespread round. Plus, this is a prolonged course, and a sleet usually creates it longer.

Marika Washchyshyn, multimedia editor, GOLF.com: Of march not, yet if it happens, it improved not wait until Monday (or, God forbid, Tuesday).
