241y to 6 feet - nice eagle for Tiger - cancels out the double

Go Mike Weir! -6 thru 14 holes ... tied for 2nd currently. Although, the "real" leaderboard should probably look more like this right now:
Tiger Woods -6
Tag Ridings -6
Steve Marino -4
Josh Teater -4
Harris English -4
KJ Choi -4
Those are all the guys in the top 15 currently who are playing the south course today.
TW -4 on the South course. He is sitting just fine going to the North course tomorrow. Did I hear that correctly that the South course is playing 7,700 yards?! Wow. That is LONG. Little Mike Weir is going to have to hit the range with those longer sticks and get them grooved for tomorrow.
The fairways are very tight and firm... So they are not easy to hold. The good news, the 'rough' is pretty manageable. At least on Tuesday when I was there, the rough was pretty much a non issue as it was cut very short. And only in some low lying areas did it look like the grass was of any substantial length. So for the most part, even if you are hitting out of the rough, it is manageable.
The fairways should be a lot softer today, as it has been raining pretty good all morning so far.....probably won't get any roll at all. I never really understand why the Tour schedules the West Coast swing the way they do. January and February are our winter, and although it is very mild by the standards of much of the country we do get rain, and often a lot of it. It seems every year we get inclement weather affecting the tourneys in San Diego, LA, and Pebble. Even Hawaii in January can be spotty, as we saw at Kapalua this year.
I'm pulling for Weir too as he is working with Grant and Joe... But playing the South Course today - when it is wet?! He is going to have to chip and putt out of his mind.
It doesn't help that he hasn't made a cut in like 17 tournaments... But it would be nice to see him at least get that monkey off his back this week. Unfortunately, adding another two days of weekend tournament golf on the South - with it playing long and wet... He may want to get the jet engines tuned up, and head out to Scottsdale?
