I simply can't understand how he could do this after winning this tournament only 2 years ago, the silly backhand was a longer putt to begin with, if Tiger wants to be there sunday he is going to need the driver to be straight, he is -2 on the par 3's and 5's each but +1 on the par 4's.

Conditions likely to be a little bit less friendly on Friday. I'm thinking neither Woods nor McIlroy break par, and that a whole heap of players finish within one or two shots of the lead. Leader? Scott, -6.

Watch Westwood, though. He looked capable of going on a run of birdies yesterday, and he's an early starter. His putter will stop him being in contention on Sunday, of course - as usual.

think rory will still be in the lead at -8. tiger to follow on -6 with Matteo

Just heard them say that the wind would calm as the day goes on. That'll help the later times, like Tiger and Rory....

They just said the somewhat normal local rule allowing relief for an embedded ball through the green is not in effect this week.....

What's a good live stream to watch while I'm at work?

Just downloaded the iOS Open app and there are some cool features. The course map when you click on the hole displays the group and individual scores. There's a line that tells you how to walk the whole course front to back.

There's a direct link that opens the WatchEspn app.

ESPN, the Open website. Or not on the up and up, front row sports.

Ha ha. Lisa Li not the only ice cream toting golfer.

I've been pretty pleased with ESPN thus far. Cant figure out who all the announcers are however. SVP, Alliss, Tirico, Dotty Pepper? and who is the other guy Curtis Strange?

 

 

Never been a SVP fan from an Sportscenter standpoint. I think he's real arrogant and needs to grow out up the frat bro attitude, but he does a tremendous job announcing golf.

Luke Donald's top of backswing looks more laid off.

I'm slightly annoyed that all I seem to catch is the commentary and no playing.

Sergio is looking a bit chunky this week.

 

Not his usual svelte self.

post #266 of 739

Oh, looks as if wind picked up. If this continues, it could be a disaster for the PM groups.

Sergio said yesterday that he loves the Open. It's his second favourite tournament in golf!

I think they're rotating lots of people in and out to keep them fresh. I hear Paul Azinger in there now too. Andy North was there later yesterday. Judy Rankin is out on the course, I thought, but maybe that was Dottie. Sean McDonough was in the booth earlier. Paul and Curtis have similar voices to me. Always takes me a sec to distinguish them.

Today so far, they have covered just a couple big name groups almost exclusively: Mickelson/Watson/Els and Scott/Rose/Dufner. I don't think they've really mentioned or shown Gary Woodland or DA Points who both shot -3 in tough conditions. Overall good stuff though.
