Lee Westwood in the lead after an eagle at 5! I would love to see him win, but there is too far to go and too many opportunities for wayward shots.

Hmmm, IBF gave Westwood advice as to putting, and Westy has putted lights out since ... advice? Same as Stan Utley ... apparently when Westy softened up his arms and lightened up his tightness (relaxed) on the grip, the lights went on.
Tiger has dropped 2 strokes in 3 holes and Westy has gone WiLd!!
Don't understand why they watered the greens so much last night. I guess they gave in to Ian Poulter's whining. But if you are going to water, at least memo the players.
Weather conditions sound tough tomorrow. Supposed to be the heaviest wind yet...15-20 with stronger gusts. Supposed to be a bit cooler, too. If the wind does blow that hard, I think this opens it up to a player at +3 or +4 because there could be more carnage from the top-2 groups. If conditions stay like today, I think the winner is more than likely going to come from one of the top-4 guys.
Hunter Mahan is the wild card tomorrow. Everyone's talking about the other three guys......sometimes it's the quiet guy that ends up winning, and he's got the game and experience to win a major.
There are four players at even par or better going into the final day. At least one of them has to shoot a 71 tomorrow. My prediction: 1-under wins, par forces a playoff. Anyone from fifth on down is going to need a round in the sixties to have a chance, and it may have to be the best 18 holes of their lives to do so.
Seems to me that the golfers not putting well seem to question the greens
