This year's Honda is being touted as a Rory vs Tiger story. I am not sure if that is going to happen, but it will be fun watching it play out. I will be at the course on Friday to check out the action live. PGA National is a great track and it is cool having such a great tournament on a course that I have actually played.

Ought to be a good tournament with a really strong field.  I agree, it's fun to see them play on courses that you've played yourself.  Whenever I play a tour course, I buy a yardage book and plot all my shots on each hole.  Then when I watch the boyz play in future tournaments, I can compare their shots to my own.  It makes for a great memory of my own round(s) as well as giving me a lot of enjoyment watching theirs.

Based on those tickets in the OP, it's Tiger vs. Rory (Sabbatini). Much less exciting. a3_biggrin.gif

LOL, I had to make sure they were for this year when I received them. Sabbatini is the 2011 Champion. They will have a different champion on there for each day.

Why would anyone think putting Rory Sabbatini on the tickets would be a good marketing tool for the tournament?   Did someone say... "Hey, put Rory on the tickets."  And some idiot in marketing who knows nothing about the tour simply found the first Getty image they could find with Roryd2_doh.gif

 

Regarding the tournament... This is going to be a statement week for both Tigs and RORS.  #1 and #2 in the world are gonna battle it out.

I could see how an unbalanced butt could play hell with a golf swing!

I just ate - it's uncomfortable to laugh so much.

 

Last year's story was Tiger vs Rory - seems the marketing is off by a year.  This year will be what it will be

Just leaving the pro am now. Being military, I got a chance to meet and caddy for my favorite golfer Louis Oosthuizen on #17 through the Birdies for the Brave program. Watched a bunch of the guys tee off from there. Louis was very nice and friendly, as was Marc Leishman who I also carried for.

My buddy had Mark Wilson and Lee Westwood. Mark was within about two feet, and Westwood hit the top of the pin, but caught a bad bounce to about 30 ft. John Huh also hit it very close. Maybe a foot or two. Tiger was on, but probably 15-20 ft away. Rory was short, but stayed dry. Dickey Pride was really friendly and stopped to chat after dunking one in the drink, then hitting his second a bit short as well.

My first time seeing the pros up close, and it was definitely enjoyable!

Should be a good tourney, would like to see Tig's get back on track. Rory will prob need a few more events to bed in the clubs.

Might have a cheeky bet on Westwood, if he hits his stride with putting he could be in contention.

Gonna be cold overnight, but not that cold. Upper 30's up here in Orlando Saturday night. Probably mid 40's down there. Mid-60's during the day.

Damn, I'm ready for winter to be over!
