You my friend...are looking like an absolute genius right now.

Gary Woodland's pitch, his left hand hit his thigh around impact. Interesting slow motion replay.

I can't turn away from this tournament. So many great ball strikers on this leaderboard.

Looks like it's going to be Stallings' day. I didn't think he'd last long on tour after winning at Greenbrier a few years ago, but this will be victory number three for him. Good job.

I did say that a " dark horse" might win it, although Gary still has a chance.

 

On Edit: Looks like Mr. Stallings is gonna be the Winnha...Congratz.

Wonder if this win is gonna turn Stallings into another Webb Simpson. Kinda same makeup. Came outta nowhere, very vanilla senses of style and style of play. Seems like a legit standup guy. Maybe start competing for a major an get lucky with one?

Just to be clear Ernest, I very much enjoy watching Tiger when he is contending or making a legitimate run at the top of the leader board. When he is hacking away I would just as soon watch those that are playing for the lead. He has, without a doubt, been good for the sport and bought a whole generation of new fans to the game.

 

Further more, if I were a Tiger Hater, as you suppose, then I would relish the continuous coverage of his lousy play, as it was this past weekend.

I wasn't referring to your post and I agree, I would rather watch coverage of the guys vying for the win than watch the superstar flirting with the cut line.

My post was in reference to the wieners who claim to be be indifferent yet can't resist taking petty jabs at Tiger. If they really were indifferent (as opposed to foaming Tiger haters blinded by their passion for retribution against someone they have never met) they would writing posts about Stallings or Speith, but they're not.

I admit that I like watching Tiger when he's winning or making a charge because it's electrifying and he is "the greatest player in the world no named Jack", but when he's totally out of contention I don't think about him at all. I like to watch golf to see players make amazing shots not to gloat and crow about Tiger's failings or successes. Can you imagine how lame it would come off if these same Chambleens (I think ill trademark that;-)) were making similar, sustained attacks against a Hoffman or a Perez? People would think they had mental issues.

It's tough to talk about Stallings when no one knows him unless they search...

 

So they talk about Tiger... because it's easy to talk about Tiger ... the swing changes ... swing coaches ... Lindsey ... Rachel...

A 6 man playoff would have been epic. Darn you Stallings!

I don't mind that they show Tiger whenever he is on the course.  It's not like they are really taking away from showing the leaders ... they're showing all of their shots as well.  I think, what we should be complaining about, is how much time they spend showing Nick Faldo and Terry Gannon on camera and chatting about whatever, instead of showing more golf ... from anybody.

Well, sure, if I can have both I ain't gonna complain.

 

I am glad they caught Faldo's cupcake sticking to the window during the Humana Challenge though.:-$ Although I suppose that may have been "fixed".
