Maybe he could use the putter he borrowed from my pro in about 1978 in a pro am at my club but forgot to return. :-)

Cards are bullshit. lol
He's either gonna win or lose. Westwood doesn't have a very big lead for a guy who hasn't won a major....TON of pressure. Tiger goes 2 under tomorrow and I think he wins...and that's very possible.
True, but you're overlooking the pressure on Tigs. He's not going into tomorrow's round free of pressure, playing with house money. He's gripping it hard, people are expecting him to win more so than they are expecting Westy to pull it off...
I don't think the pressure will get to Tiger. I think the pressure is the same tomorrow as it was today and/or yesterday. Dude puts more pressure on himself than we ever could.
You're absolutely right, he puts tons of pressure on himself - see the issues he has on the first tee...
Look, I love Tiger. More than just about anyone else does, just ask some of the regulars here. I tell my wife that he's my friend and that he needs me to watch him play so he can play better, lol... But he doesn't have a good history coming from behind, and he would have to buck that trend.
Tiger should take it up with the players that were most vocal about the greens on Thursday (Phil & Poults)
+12. That's the Shiv Kapur we didn't know but fully expected to see.
It's 4AM. Go back to sleep.
I think there's more pressure on Westwood because, fairly or unfairly (and most likely unfairly), a lot of those watching with a cynical eye are going to be waiting for the choke. The British tabloid newspapers are merciless (just ask "Nick Foldo" prior to 1987).
Tiger's nerves (to the extent that he has nerves on a golf course) seem to manifest themselves in the odd wayward first drive - but once he's out on the course and up and running, no-one is expecting a choke. An unlucky double maybe, but not choking.
Probably unpatriotic for an Englishman to say this, but I think if Tiger doesn't win today (which is unlikely in my opinion), Hunter Mahan will...which is cool, I've always enjoyed watching Mahan play ever since I first noticed him when he won that Matchplay tournament a couple of years back.
Yeah, either that or over aggressive play/putting, like when he putted off the green earlier in the tournament.
I love Mahan, and other than Tiger/DJ, he's one of the few guys I'd love to see win. However, everything he did yesterday was outside of the pressure of the final few groupings. Today will be different for him, I believe. Drastically different. I think Stenson and Tiger will finish 1-2, not sure which order.
