That's what I was thinking too.  Zack Johnson went in and he never seems to make that mistake.

Zack was definitely trying to do that because he was paired with DJ.  On most 2nd shots, Zack was 30 - 50 yards behind DJ and was getting frustrated.

Ergh.....

Okay, THAT bothers me. "We both wear it now." Get bent. I'd be curious to see what the other players on tour have to say about this guy.. Count me in as a hater now.

LOL this guy definitely needs to hire a PR person...he must be a little slow in the head, for real. As annoying as he is, I'll be stoked he's on the Ryder Cup team if he's still playing this well.

That's true this guy might be made for the Ryder Cup.

PS I'm not a hater, because we may have a new guy with a personality and not a PR honed talking head. And I'm waiting for the day when Reed and Woods are paired on the final twosome on Sunday. The Tiger fanatics will be foaming at the mouth, if they're not already. Two guys dressed in red and black going head to head, ego to ego. That will be something.

You'd think Zach would be used to being first to hit from the fairway by now. It's not like he's spent the last ten years paired with Fred Funk and Corey Pavin.

Good point, but there was one hole where they were pretty far apart and when Zach saw what club DJ was using, Miller commented that Zach said "You've got to be kidding me".

Good chance Reed poops his TW Underoos in that scenario. Kudos on the win but nobody really put much pressure on him in the final round and back nine and he did start to hit some pretty sketchy tee shots even without a "Tiger" breathing down his neck. No knocking his talent, he beat the field but it's not like he buried the competition.

If nobody put pressure on you for the entire final round, isn't that kind of the definition of "burying the competition?"

I wouldn't call a 1 shot margin burying the competition, no. He shot even par and got the job done. Like I said, kudos, but let's not get carried away.

Well, more like 1 1/2 seeing as how he basically "intentionally" bogied 18. But let me ask you this: what's the difference between playing well to the point that you afford yourself the luxury of making a couple of bogeys on the final few holes vs. if you get sloppy early, allow people to catch you, then make a birdie on one of the last holes to win? Is it really any different? Either way, it's a win. Dude beat the strongest field of the year and cruised for about the entire final round. I'm not getting "carried away" here, but he deserves some props.

With as many balls that went in the water this week, might need a few boats to go with those props. 8)
