It's gotta be in his head. Makes you wonder how much it has to do with his girlfriend and running around the world with her. He just doesn't have the mental game at all right now.

It dawned on me the other day that this is plain silly, unless they charge half as much as they should for a full membership, because they could accomplish the exact same thing by simply requiring twosomes. :)

I have to give Zach credit for a nice bounceback to even par for the day so far, and back on top of the leaderboard.

Phil just 4-putted, 3 from four feet.

Ouch...

 

Can't wait to hear his commentary on the conditions afterwards...

post #132 of 380

Angel Cabrera is one tough competitor when it comes to major tournaments; I love the way he sets up to the ball and swings away.

Does anyone know what the cut is?

According to the announcers, either +7 or +8.

Was there a windmill or a clown mouth anywhere in the vicinity?

 

Things are shaping up for an interesting weekend.

Right now it's +7, but if one more player drops a stroke it's +8. At +8 86 players would make the cut.

These guys just don't want to finish.

Wonder how fair Zach Johnson would find the course today. Tiger's Even par is looking mighty good

Tigs should be leading by one at -4, those two missed putts hurt...

He made like 3-4 par saves of 8+ feet though.  I think it evened out.  The real missed opportunities were yesterday.

Miguel Angel Jimenez is the leader, but let's be honest, it's that group one shot behind him that will have everyone's attention tomorrow. Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, Dustin Johnson, and Henrik Stenson are all players who can win this championship, and one must believe at least one of them will put up two solid rounds this weekend. These men aren't going away.

 

I don't believe there will be room to make a move during the final round, so any player that wants to win has to make up ground Saturday. There are plenty of golfers within five strokes of the lead who can do it: will they?

post #142 of 380

Stenson is the guy who I think is going way under the radar big time right now. He's coming in playing very well......he once was regarded as one of the best in the world without a major before he lost his head, but he's gotten that back, which has brought back his game. He could be very dangerous.

 

Not sure Jimenez will hang in there. Will be interesting to see how Westwood plays with Tiger. I think of the guys from the +1 group, Schwartzel is most likely to make a run. Outside of really 2 holes, he's played really solid this championship.

Yeah but those are the ones we have always expected him to make...

Seems like those 15-16 guys made a deal with the devil! I'm going to be watching Blixt because I enjoyed watching him at the Greenbrier. I know he won't finish anywhere near the top, but it'll be fun rooting for him and see where he lands when all the dust settles!
