Nike Covert Tour 2.0, it's not listed as a proto though.

By "proto" I just meant "pre-release." Guess I should read the whole thread next time. a2_wink.gif

Because he doesn't need to. Ranked 2 in the money list, so will definitely qualify.

 

A lot of the people competing this weekend are doing it to get into the top money ranks

WGC event = no appearance fee, unlike the Euro Tour event next week in Turkey which he is playing in.

Does anybody else find it entertaining hearing some of the Chinese fans reaction after a good shot? lol

That would be an apt summation of the field Tiger's going up against in Turkey. It would be an embarrassment if he doesn't win by six strokes.

I fell asleep on the couch last night watching the start of the third round. I woke up when DJ was making the turn and he was 18 under after shooting 30 on the front, and he had a six shot lead.

II was very surprised to see that he was still 18 under when I checked the scores this morning, with a few guys within hailing distance.

Sounds like DJ to me.

Ian Poulter's hair is scaring me. He may win, but I will fear for my safety as he is doing so.

Johnson wins with -24. Poulter at 2nd with -21, GMac in at -20. Sergio follows. Johnson pushed the others off the table  with a long iron (260 yrd off the tee)  at 16, then chipped in for eagle.

I just couldn't stay awake for any of the rounds but I did catch bits and pieces. Hard to really develop any allegiance to DJ, just too damn dopey looking, but you can't argue with a man that post a -24 on the tourney.

Do you mean polite, respectful, and engaged as good fans?

 

(not yelling stupid crap and dumping beer on each other and being obnoxious like in the US and Europe?)

 

Yeah - it's entertaining.  They really seem to be appreciating good shots.

What there some kind of moisture in the air, or was that smog? I didn't see any clouds, just grey everywhere. I don't know if I'd want to spend a week there.

It looks like a breeze winning by 3 but from reports it was tied going down to the last 3 holes where DJ eagled and birded 16 and 17 to get back into the lead.

One of the announcers mention that the air quality was listed as "unhealthy". Considering that a recent LPGA tournament was delayed due to smog with several of the players wearing surgical face masks while playing, I would guess that the general air quality in China is terrible. When you watch tournaments from China, you never seem to see the sun or any shadows.  No EPA air quality restrictions, just burn whatever you want and crank out the cheap goods for export. I would not be surprised to see plenty of lung and respiratory disease among the Chinese population in the near future. And plenty of them still smoke!
