Bit of a scramble, but a good par for Tiger on one....

Actually, I'm more Scot than Sassenach. And in general, I'm pro-Irish, though for some reason I can't stand McIlroy, either. But Harrington has always seemed unappealingly vacuous to me, a couple of slices short of a full loaf.

EDIT. Fantastic up and down for Westwood, maybe he isn't past it after all...

I'm only kidding bud....his beaver face after each shot is a little odd.

oh, did Tiger make the putt?  My feed cut out.  Looked like a pull drive, 2nd to the trap, sand shot short and a long putt left to save.....

 

 

the longer this goes, it seems like a lot more petty/personal comments about the players......odd thread

I'm sure if you dig into the origins of the word Sassenach you'll find it roughly translates into lowlander and was used to differentiate anyone from south of the old Highland line. The line was based on Stirling, so although many of them are unaware of it, Glaswegians are sassenachs, as indeed would be a majority of the Scottish population. Just in case any of you go to Gleneagles next month though (don't suggest to any Scots that they might be sassenachs, it really won't go down very well)

So much for that Friday jinx that was all people could talk about prior to the Open Championship win. Don't think Rory knows what day it is- give him a club and he just sees fairways n greens.

Funnily enough, I know that. Argyll was the centre of the first Scots kingdom, I believe, and that's my lineage...

Meanwhile, Westwood birdies the third. He looks like a man who knows how to putt. Must be an impostor..

Sassenach and the Welsh word 'Sais' (Englishman) both come from the latin Saxones, for Saxons.

Here's an article and clip of it:

Yeah, he reached for that tee a little slowly on the 2nd tee. HOpefully it's not what I think it is.

Article showing Brandel is talking out his ass about Tiger's launch angles being a bad thing

 

Also - Chamblee mentioned forward shaft lean sends the ball left - can someone explain how?

The whole part with him using the pen is hilarious, IMO.

I think he said "Right", which makes more sense

Tiger stuffs it on 3. Great shot.

The TNT feed is basically marquee group coverage of Tiger, Phil, and Paddy.

Not that I'm complaining.
