Lol, that would be a lot easier than all of the portable heaters they would need to melt the snow and ice where I live.

It was interesting seeing how many pros were wearing the adizero shoes yesterday at the course.   I must have seen at least 20-25 players wearing them, and I only saw less than half the field since I mostly stayed on the South course.     Didn't see anyone flying though......

Was that before or after the ad for stool softener.


Stool softener? You must be on the Florida network...

Sorry, it is hard to read 'tone' on the Internet.  So I wasn't sure if you were being sarcastic or not?  

 

I'll add... Phil doesn't seem to doing too much thinking these days.  He placed his foot squarely within his mouth last Sunday.  And to see him dripping wet because he didn't use an umbrella... Well.  That's par for the course with Phil, so it seems?

No worries.    Phil is certainly an enigma.   I've heard him speak on philanthropic things here in San Diego, and he seems very intelligent and well spoken.   He is known to have a love of science and engineering, and in some of his charitable activities in those areas he is inquisitive and very involved.      And then other times he comes across as kind of a simple oaf; his recent tax comments are a perfect example, as it is hard to believe that he wouldn't expect the reaction he got from people who didn't feel quite so sympathetic to a man who has the lucky privilege of earning a fortune playing a game.     

 

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.

I heard something about another cut when the announcers were babbling on?  Any info on that?

There are around 85 golfers left because so many people were grouped between -2 and -5, so there is going to be another cut after the third round.  Which is kind of funny when you think about it; people can say that missed the cut of a PGA Tour event and still stayed around to play on Sunday morning.  How often does that happen?

No, no Clambake. Phil is not an enigma. Phil is an enema. g2_eek.gif
