Picked Rory to make it to the finals, he's out. For my next trick... Tiger?

Yep.

 

No bogeys in the pairing, though.

Double wow.

So much for the "engineered" final......

Wow this tourney is a crap shoot. That's two final four picks dead for me already. Lame!

 

Wait, I just checked my score and I'm somehow T-second with a bunch of others. Guess you guys aren't doing so well either a3_biggrin.gif

And now we see why match play is a dud for television.  This format only determines the best player on a single day or for a single round, and these guys are matched closely enough that on any given day, anyone can beat anyone.  I predict that this tournament will go the way of the dodo bird in the not so distant future.  Sponsors paying millions aren't going to keep putting up money to see the top two players in the world play one losing round of golf.  

 

When Tiger and Rory both lost in the first round, the simultaneous click of millions of TV's being turned off simultaneously almost set of a tsunami.  z4_blink.gif

I know it would make the tournament longer, but I have always wished they would make it double elimination.  Or at least have a way for the guys who lose on the first day a chance to battle back into this thing somehow.  This format definitely makes you bring your "A" game.

I don't doubt it makes it less interesting for the fringe fans or LCD but I'm more interested if anything. More surprising than Rory and Tiger being one and done is all the other big names that lost today. I didn't play in this fantasy challenge but I picked Oosthuizen and BVP to meet in the final so I'm hanging in to the end to see how it shakes out. I'm ready for the the feel good story, a win by Henley, Oleson, BVP or Sterne. But yeah certainly not something the sponsors want to see.
