Re: Bridgestone Thread

I think the question will be: can Harrington's new swing hold up under pressure?

If he can keep it under control then I say he will win. If he shoots an even round or worse, I think Tiger will shoot a 3 under to force a playoff.

Re: Bridgestone Thread

Im not superstitious but if Tiger wants to win next week, then he should not win the World Golf Championships...a second would be nice, lol.

First of all, there are only two par fives, one of them being 667 yards long. With a 360 tee shot you still got 307 yards left. I know JB Holmes has reached it in two and made birdie. According to Shot Tracker, he drove it 393 yards, hit his second 242 to 7 yards from the hole. Only a couple of players can do this. Sergio can, but should he reach the green in two, he still have to make the putt, and we all know how good a putter Sergio is. He drove it 409 according to Shot Tracker at the 16th.

The other one is 526 and reachable in two. There have been a couple of eagles, but this is still a tough course, you won't get an eagle for free. Goosen just made one.

Re: Bridgestone Thread

Even though he has been the best player in the world for so many years, he still keep on impressing me. Seems like he will snatch this competition.

Re: Bridgestone Thread

Three shots gone, just like that in four holes.

Edit: And now he's in the lead, amazing player. He's played the first five holes incredibly.

Poor Padraig. You can only feel sorry for him.

Re: Bridgestone Thread

He hasn't made any huge mistakes yet. Played to par all along. Only problem is he's playing against Tiger Woods, and he don't plan on shooting even par today.

Re: Bridgestone Thread

Padraig has beaten Tiger before in final rounds so this situation is not new. But he's got to raise his game up another level to compete in this final round. Par won't do it.

16th seems to be a turning point today.

Re: Bridgestone Thread

A shame that Padraig has contrived to lose it rather than Woods earning it.

It's official: Tiger Woods is one sick mofo.

ye, because the fact that Tiger stuck it to inches had no effect did it!

Re: Bridgestone Thread

Both Paddy & Tiger butchered their 1st 2 shots on 16 but Tiger's 3rd shot was phenomenal and Paddy's was ... well un-Paddylike. Paddy's 4th (dumped into the water) was even worse and more uncharacteristic.

Paddy impressed me with how he weathered Tiger's blitz during the 1st 5 holes. He stayed with his game and didn't press.

Nope, it didn't. Harrington just hit a woeful shot from the rough and it's cost him the tournament.

Yeah...Tiger never win anything, the other players lose it. Tiger just seems to be lucky being there when they do. Come on...
