yeah, he had that Tiger back leg follow thru.

I thought it was more of a "Dancing with the Stars" follow through!!

Some thoughts from walking the South and North yesterday - not the whole place of course but more than usual.  A very good day overall.

 

Snedeker was really enjoying himself, he seemed to be smiling the whole time I saw him.  Very relaxed and smooth action.  He was already 6 under at around 2.

 

Mike Weir looked very sharp esp. with his irons.  I saw him lay up from the rough on a par 4 and said to my friend, "Good decision.  Going for the green was too risky and he could easily make par from here with his short game" - which he proceeded to do.

 

My friend and I were walking along the 14th talking about Phil's tax situation - my friend takes a different view and thinks he should just suck up the new higher CA tax rate - when we noticed that his wife was walking right behind us with another woman.  Well, that was the end of THAT particular conversation .....  Phil's wife looked very good and seemed to be having a fine time, not that she was following her husband's game very closely, at least for the couple holes we followed him - too busy chatting with her friend.  I hadn't realized that she's quite so petite.

 

I must say that Daly was looking good and fit.  His weight looks about right and unlike last time I didn't see him smoking - bravo!   I've always been a fan of Charles Howell III and it was good to see him playing so well and enjoying himself.  Never forget, it was here that he flew the ball right into the hole on the approach shot on the 18th on Sunday with a one shot lead; the ball bounced out, ran down the slope and into the pond - loss of tournament.  That guy deserves to win a few more tourneys before he's done.

 

Beachcomber:  yes, the rough was cut shorter than I've ever seen at Torrey.  Lots of guys were hitting greens from well off the fairway, hence some of the low scoring.

 

I can recommend the Schwab tent on the 17th fairway.  Cheers!

Gary Player owns the "swing your back leg around on the followthrough" move for all time.

Chris Wood is leading the Qatar Masters. I had no idea the British Open was being played this week!

TW looks very good at -11 after 36 holes.  This is going to be a very interesting weekend.  Several solid players are in the hunt.

Well, you know how Tiger has nicknames for all his buddies? I call Tiger nicknames and it's like we are buds too.

And you followed the Tiger form of really lame, name-related nicknames. Well done.
