Good point. I find the same tendencies for myself. If someone could block it out and shoot a 67 in that spot, it's Tiger.

I agree. Whether it's having to wait for a long time on the group in front or having to wait on someone in your group who is struggling, it is difficult to stay in a good rhythm in those circumstances. The other day I managed to play a round in only 2 hours because no one was on the golf course. I didn't feel like I was hitting it that well, but I was able to get in a rhythm due to the good pace of play and I shot a pretty good score by my standards (78).

No-brainer - why didn't the PGA start this tournament today very early on both #1 and #10. It was obvious that the weather was going to be bad and hit when the leaders went off.

 

Actually was tempted to head back out there this early a.m. and get home for the leaders - glad I stayed home afterall.

 

My next tourney will be TPC @ Sawgrass in May. Looking forward to it already.

With that much rain on the course to soften it, can anyone catch Tiger?!! That wet rough is going to be tough to play out of!! Maybe the will resume play by 3:30?!

I agree, Tour should have started at least an hour earlier. That way the final group would be through 7 or 8 holes at this point. Not sure if they will be able to finish today with how it looks right now.

did you catch Sergio's shot on #10 from the trees - backhanded shot back into the middle of the fairway....not sure if he saved par.....wonder what club he used (maybe his "treewood"?).

Just checked the PGA Tour app while at the airport and saw a WD next to Sergio. He withdrew from the tournament??

guess he has a flight to catch - or maybe that jump out of the tree (about 4-5 feet, it seemed like) hurt his leg?  That "9" he took hurt, too.

Apparently play has been called for the day and they will resume at 10 AM Eastern tomorrow. Tour really screwed this up. They could have had a split-tee start in the morning and finished 90% of the round today.

Does it matter if they play 10% or 70% tomorrow?

For their TV ratings it does. Better to show 4th round coverage today than 3rd round coverage.

Tavistock Day 1 was supposed to be on Monday. Lots of players involved.  Guess they'll have to postpone.

Feel bad for those rich snobs. Joking, of course.

Yeah Rick I guess the battle of the neighborhoods will have to be postpone for a day. Well most of those guys get to sleep in their own bed, and be with their family another day too!

I was really looking forward to watching the rest of the tournament today. Even got up early and got a round in so I could sit back and relax this afternoon. Does anyone know if Tiger and Rickie were able to tee off before the delay?

Didn't bother him too much the three days I did it.
