post #37 of 106

McIlroy is 5 under on his first 9 holes and has a share of the lead. Good looking leaderboard so far.

post #38 of 106
Really low scores out there. How much tougher can they make the course the last two days?

At this rate, they'll be at 20 under by sunday.

Tiger started birdie-birdie, albeit on two pretty easy holes.

He birdied 3 and 4 yesterday, and as someone who has played the course, that bunker shot on 4 is one of the best short game shots he's hit all year. That green is so small and slopes so much at the edges, if it had trickled off the green and he would have struggled to make bogey. I've played that front pin they played yesterday, it' absolutely brutal.

EDIT: He's bunkered on 3. I've played from that bunker to that pin location, and made par. Tiger's got 9 feet.

He was probably digging his feet in and asking himself, "What would Jamo do here?".

 

No matter how anyone feels about Ian J Poulter (not a fan but not offended by him either) can we honestly agree that nobody deserves to be put with Kevin Na and Ben Crane for 2 days? That he's got it to -6 bodes well for the Euros at Medinah.

Jamo's made double bogey both time he's played that hole, so I doubt it. a3_biggrin.gif

EDIT: Thought you were talking about 4.

Absolutely, positively, guaranteed ... no.  (Not that they couldn't be paired together - don't know how they finished - just that it's not the final round) a2_wink.gif  Tourney just started yesterday, tomorrow is round 3, and finishes on Monday holiday. c2_beer.gif

Isn't there a final pairing every day?

Okay, watching Crane today quickly made me realize that Keegan Bradley is no longer my least favorite person to watch putt.  I kind of wanted to punch my TV while watching his Daddy--err, I mean his caddie--stand over/behind him and spend 2 minutes nudging him into the right line little by little.  I wish there were a way to legislate that out of the game.

Not always.  Sometimes they have final threesomes.

Umm whoops!  I am an idiot!  For some reason, I read "final pairing" as "final round pairing" and was so excited to be a "know-it-all smart-alec" and didn't catch my error.

 

Maybe in addition to the dumb grammar thread, we can start an "idiots who don't know how to read" thread?

 

Sorry Jim!

So there was talk that the course would firm up and get faster and be tougher to score on today and tomorrow, but so far Keegan has posted a 63 so it looks like there is still plenty of scoring to be had out there.

OK, that greenside shot Woods hit out of the gnarly rough on 10. He aimed left, it came out right. How'd he do that? Or did he just anticipate a right bounce?

post #52 of 106
Louis... WOW! What more can you say
post #53 of 106

Johnny Miller - trap draw mention on McIlroy's wedge.

post #54 of 106
Looks like Louis hurt his shoulder a bit.
