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!!

I'm watching Westwood and can't help but think that he looks like a walking billboard. Any idea how much UPS pays him??

Yes. More than the other companies who wanted to put their logo there.

Final group Sun. Lee/Tiger or Lee/Hunter?

 

Dang he missed it.

I think that bogey on 17 was a killer for Tiger.

Interview on BBC. Tiger not happy with the organiser mucking around with the greens speed. I thought that was a fair comment.

Greens not consistent day to day in a major no excuse for that!

I think the 16th today was huge. Could have been a 2 or 3 shot swing in Tiger's favor. You could almost see Tiger tallying his lead when Lee was thrashing around in the brush.

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.

If the conditions are tough tomorrow I actually see Tiger having a shot.

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.

Lol, Shiv Kapur barfed all over himself today...

Seems to me that the golfers not putting well seem to question  the greens a2_wink.gif

Lotta pressure on Westwood. I think Tiger can come in and make history tomorrow.

post #178 of 380
16th was too huge. Tiger wanted that birdie so bad, and Lee was clutch with that bogey putt. If Tiger had birdied 16, he may have been more conservative on 17. I knew even par from him will put him in the lead
post #179 of 380
Love this one. Ernie still grinding on the practice green with his eye doc. Says even par could still win it.

I need a putting lesson from Ian B. Finch!
