What a blunder from Spieth AND his caddy. Incredible.

Beware the rake!  And what ever happened to the "rake in the bunker" protocol?  Then Spieth would have seen it.

Tiger needs to take advantage of 4 through 7. At least pick off a couple birdies. Seems stuck in neutral right now. I'm expecting the lead to be close to -10 by day's end. Someone from the -5 group will likely go low.

Greller probably gave him an extra club both times, thinking that Spieth would mishit it. It's a solid bet, based on his iron play so far this year.

I like that it makes them look a lot more like the rest of us.  Please reference Ian Poulter.

The last 6 holes may be the undoing of Tiger’s Open. Missed makeable birdies on 4 and 6, didn’t take advantage of 7, bogeyed 8 and now in trouble at 9.

Tiger didn't have a single-bogey for his first 34 holes and then has two in his last 2 of the first 36.

(Yes, I know what he did on the first par-3 yesterday)

DJ's approach at the first hole reminds me of reason one billion why I would be unsuccessful as a touring pro.  To me, a red flag means it's at the front third of the green (roughly), not the middle.  

Reason #1 I would go hungry as a professional golfer is that I've never broken 80, so the flag color thing is kind of low on the list.

He sometimes gets those rounds with 16 pars, but when he shoots +/-2 it's often with a bunch of birdies and bogies. The first to rounds has been a par feast for him.

Lots of good players still within reach.

It would be nice to see some more of the amateurs play. We see the pros almost every weekend

Rose -7 won’t hold up with so many quality guys playing tonight. I expect Oosthuizen, Rory and Schauffele all to catch Rose and maybe pass.

Wow, Rory is tied for second, just two off the current lead.  I can really see him winning his 5th major.  When he will get the grand slam is more debatable though I just believe it is a question of time

Not a good front 9 going for Rickie.

Man, I wish I could have Louis' swing. So pretty and fun to watch.

Bets player in the world.  When on form, he's a long way clear of the rest.

Tiger over the first 2 rounds was frustrating.  He did well to not be +10 his game is so bad.  Just don't think he's capable anymore when the courses demand accuracy.

Seems like Tiger was playing the old strategy of being conservative and avoiding bogeys and big numbers. Unfortunately that only works for the usual brutal course where they’re just trying for par. He seemed all suave about hitting to the safe side of the green while Rose and others are throwing darts. Come on Tiger...today was moving day, not ho hum par day!
