Really Tiger? Woke up to find him go DB-Bogey. Also, Rory McIlroy's outfits are ****ing awful
post #290 of 739

I love ESPN's coverage overall, but why does it take them until his 5th hole to show DJ?? The guys is a top five American player and is two off the lead. Instead they show guys like Luke Donald who literally has zero chance of ever winning a major...makes no sense to me.

Yup I got to work early just to watch Tiger on the live stream and he does that?!?!?!

Pitiful performance by Tiger

I guess Tiger forgot how to chip out of high grass (7th hole) -- it seemed like a weak effort.

 

"Put some back into it. Tiger."

 

But the putt... ok.

Not saying you're wrong, but it's just a guess. He showed yesterday that he could turn it around.

Really hope none of the leaders go low in the afternoon group...would be nice if the lead is 5 or 6 under by the end of the day and all the folks at even par or better will be in it this weekend.

Rory better not run away with this. That would be just awful.

I think it's quite possible though.

Ugh, some kid yelled mashed potatoes.

Why are they not showing Furyk? Is he not in 2ND or what?
post #301 of 739

Gosh, if Tiger wasn't +5 on the first two holes the first two days... 

 

I know, if ifs and buts were candy and nuts...

No less inappropriate that shouting "in the hole" at a yardage where it's impossible, and likely to be a bit of rebuke for the Americans that keep doing it (as indeed the microphone just picked someone up doing so for Rory). It bought a smile to my face to read Golf Digests guide to the Open for American visitors this week

 

"American players always say that British galleries are the most knowledgable in the world. Golf Digest interpret to mean, "don't shout in the hole at a par 5"

 

I have a slightly different take on this, which is American players aren't so stupid as to come over to a foreign country and announce how much they hate their ignorant guests (only Ian Poulter does that). Ultimately golf is an indvidual sport and getting a gallery onside can make the difference (Faldo and Azinger anyone?). Azinger paid the penalty for his Kiawah antics, and whereas he cried at losing (as Faldo did at winning) there were no shortage of people quietly smiling at the karma

 

As regards "in the hole" - look it was moderately amusing the first time when it was used for John Daly who was ripping up the yardage book and seemingly lending the wags shout out a bit of currency, but don't you feel its worn a bit thin a quarter of a century later. Or perhaps people still think its funny, I don't know?

Is it odd that I like Rory...or at least want to like him...but I just really don't want to see him win?? Anybody else feel the same? There are just so many others I'd rather see win- Fowler, DJ, Phil, etc. Crazy that Rory would be one green jacket from completing the career slam if he wins this weekend.

(I don't see him stretching out a big lead this weekend.)

Sergio ... so many emotional ups and downs ... seems to have settled down.

 

Would not mind if Sergio earned the title.
