I'll tell you around 8PM Eastern Standard Time tomorrow. ;)

I also am pulling for Ricky F. to win it, but deep down, I know it's prolly not gonna happen. I would take Bubba first, then Jordan, then Matt. Jordan really impressed me today, does that kid not have nerves, or what..? He seemed so Calm in his interview. If nothing else, my guess is, he's a Champion in the making.

Pretty much how I'm seeing it as well. Miguel is tempting at 20/1 but I haven't seen him put 2 rounds like that together in awhile. Ricky and Jordan are gamers...I'd love it to come down to those two. A changing of the guards of sorts...anyway, unbelievable tournament.

Just a reminder for everyone, we'll be doing the live chat in this thread tomorrow. Should be a great final round!

Well, at this point the odds are basically meaningless. Since you're talking about a large sum of money, it's only a matter of who you think is going to win. Mainly because I'm hoping to jinx him, I'm gonna say I'd bet my money on Furyk. ;)

Watching the end of today's round now ... Verne Lundquist just told us that a girl from Spieths high school is Roger Staubachs granddaughter. Umm, okayyyy. The significance of that is??????

That was the randomest anecdote ever.

LOL I'm watching as well and just heard the same thing. 

 

Holy crap Bubba certainly left a few out there from where he was driving it.

I'm pulling for Blixt, but I don't know why exactly.

I think it's kind of hard to have a changing of the guard without Tiger playing, though.

Maybe that's part of the change..... With continuing health issues, he's not playing as much, and when he does, he's not always competitive to the level that he used to be.

Bubba started getting a little yippie with the putter yesterday, leaving a lot of putts short. Nerves might be getting to him.

 

I'm liking Jordon Speith, that kid is playing lights out right now.

 

Its gonna be a great final round, so many players with a chance to win. If Tiger was out there, he would be in the mix too. So sad he's not there.

That's just another way of saying he's only [Lottery Megaphone]twenty... years... old...[End Megaphone].

And you lot out there - you're old. a1_smile.gif

I guess in my opinion, changing of the guard requires the young gun beating the established king on the big stage.

What are we going to do when Woods and Mickelson retire? Youngsters like McIlroy, Speith, and Fowler have to generate some interest. 

 

I'd rather see the winner of majors to be the best, who have been the best, and who'll continue to be the best in the game


If Speith is truly going to be a long term great player, winner of multiple majors, Ryder Cup player over and over again - then I'm all for him winning.  I think he's going a to be  great one (hopefully).

 

Seeing one hit wonders win the major and disappear, struggle with making cuts, etc (Lucas Glover).  I'd prefer they not get that lightning in a bottle and win (Blixt also comes to mind if he wins today). 

 

If that doesn't happen, I'd like to see the winner be someone who has done a lot in the game but hasn't found the peak (Westwood, Stricker, Jimenez come to mind).  Almost a capstone to their long career.......Furyk won his major awhile go, but this one would be great to cap his career. Kuchar fits the category of being among the best as well and would be a true champion.

So that's what that was. I'm in NY and got the eye logo for 5 minutes, I got back late. Thought the broadcast was cable only or something.

Did anyone even notice? Word is that since Your Highness TW isn't playing, sportsfans are watching NASCAR instead.
