post #109 of 292

Is anyone else with a droid phone having a time of it trying to get the live feed to work?

TV broadcast just started here. Tiger picking up birdies on 2 and 3, taking a 4 shot lead.
post #111 of 292

Is anyone else noticing that Tiger might be about to run away with this thing?

 

Edit:  apparently Zeph is.

 

And how about those driving stats?  1st in distance and 4th in accuracy with 70% of the fairways.

I thought someone was going to run away with his ball on fourth...

But there is no denying that he is the current golf generation version of Arnold Palmer with the fans.   While watching him yesterday, he interacted with the fans outside the ropes frequently, acknowledging every "Go Phil!" chant with a nod, a smile, or a thumbs up.   He finished up bogey-bogey, then walked off smiling and started signing countless autographs.   And he doesn't simply sign away in silence, he interacts with the autograph seekers, making a connection with each.   

Phil is really a humble guy.Thats hard to find these days with big sports athletes.Hes the nicest guy and one of my favorites on the PGA tour

I think both of Tiger's playing partners are using them. Interesting that it's a lot of younger guys too. I use the Super Stroke Slim.

Take smaller bites, Tiger, jeez...

I think Tiger's got this.  I hope he has a great season and wins at least a major this year!

Peter Kostis...sigh...

I think this tournament might be a statement tournament from tiger, letting people know that he is still one bad mofo and not to be underestimated. I think this might be a big year from Eldrick.

Tiger's rhytm and tempo today is excellent. I really can't see right now who could stop him this week, but still a lot of golf to be played today.

Another indication that Hank Haney is a terrible teacher!  With Haney, Tiger couldn't hit the side of a barn with a driver.

 

EDIT--I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Haney ruined Tiger's swing.  It's amazing what Tiger did with that messed-up swing under Haney.

Back to back bogeys on 11 and 12, nothing spectacular happened.

 

From the GolfChannel: 

"Now he's just showing off. Tiger rips drive at the 15th down the middle, practically picking up his tee before he completed his backswing." 

 

Sums it up pretty good

Let the battle for 2nd begin! Tiger is in the zone, and he won't relinquish the lead this week. I've been impressed with Rickie Fowler's comeback. He was +5 after round one, and he in the top 30 now. CH3 is in the top 10 again too!

i love watching them change the pin.

post #124 of 292

The changing of the pin was nice to see. I hope the greenkeepers at my course watched it too.

 

There are just two questions left I guess:

 

1. Who will finish second?

2. Will Tiger have enough time to put on a red shirt before the fourth round starts?

post #125 of 292
I think Horschel has been peeking at Tiger's outfit chart this weekend.
post #126 of 292

Is Tiger done for the day?  Or is he going to keep playing - and start the 4th round?
