post #73 of 250

I thought Ricky Fowler played really well today. I got a sneaking suspicion he may light it up.  Good to see Tiger playing pretty decent, I wouldn't count him out. Then there's Justin Rose, this could get really interesting.

This is one my favorite tournaments of the year. Always a good one.

Tiger had his ups and downs, definitely a weird round. Sad about Dustin Johnson, hope he gets better. That course looks really cool on television.

Interesting. Tiger goes from 100-1 odds yesterday to 12-1 odds this evening. I put $30 on Tiger last night to win outright. It is probably still a long shot, but would be awesome if he could pull it off. I really think Justin Rose or Rickie Fowler will win. We will know a lot more tomorrow.

If Tiger could have just managed par on those bogey holes and that double he would be tied for the lead or leading I think.  In his past Tiger never made many bogeys.  His good shots are good but he needs to stop those bogey holes. Hell, the first bogey on #1 NEVER should have happened.  That SHOULD have been birdie and definitely at least a par.

I think he just needed reps.

Good drivers win this tournament. Dont think Tiger stands much of a chance this week. I like Scott or Furyk to win this bad boy.

It has been quite a few years since Tiger has been viewed as a good driver and yet he has won 4 of the last 8, so I challenge your premise.

Tiger was ranked 17th last year and 6th in 2012 on total driving. IIRC, he led the driving stats for quite a while last year.

That includes hitting irons and fairway woods off the tee which he does a lot.

Perception and reality don't always align.

You're right. The bogey on #1 was shocking, frankly.

Anyone know Tiger's driving stats for yesterday?

 

Interested to see how bad/good/average they really were

Leishman after 4 holes today already as many bogeys as he had yesterday the whole round.

post #86 of 250

Tiger starts with birdie.

post #87 of 250

Followed by a bogey.

 

Stenson starts with an eagle and a birdie. Impressive.

Tiger consistently left off the tee...

At least he's consistent.

J.B. Holmes playing well. Could be a dark horse next week playing in his home state. Played well at the Ryder Cup in Valhalla 6 years ago. Was picked by Captain Azinger because of his knowledge of Valhalla and went 2-0. You know he's been waiting for this PGA Championship for a long time.
