Personally I couldn't stop thinking about how big an idiot he looks like out there. I guess that skater/pothead look appeals to some people, but if you ask me, he looks like a real dope.

I think he is dressing how he would like to dress on a golf course. Because it isn't the norm, some don't like it but to be honest, he just has some different looking golf shoes and a different shaped cap. As a guy who decided to be sponsor-less to find the clubs that would make him play the best, I think he has done a pretty good job so far.

Well done Mickelson!

hmm, could be just me,,,i think tiger's swing tempo gets faster as he gets frustrated...when the going gets tough, just swing harder...

on ryan moore, i don't understand why he should be regarded favorably (or more favorably) because he is considered sponsor free and wears whatever he wants, without the "usual" logos, when he does put that S for advertising his part ownership of that golf company?

ins't that just a matter of different bottling? :)

http://www.pgatour.com/2009/tourname...nd4/index.html Ernie must be bothered by that wood he chunked into the water on the 18th. With a par he could've got himself into a playoff, at least. Laying up could provide a birdie.

just watched the end of the rebroadcast with my first cup of the day. Interestingly, they showed Ernie and Phil walking (after the tounament) and discussing that particular shot. Ernie didn't appear bothered at all and was even smiling as he explained to Phil what happened. You wouild have thought that they were 2 buds discussing a shot after a Saturday round at the local muni.

Perhaps that shows that Ernie's lost a bit of the killer instinct. That shot should probably bother the crap out of him for at least a few hours.

Maybe the $675,000 check helped him get past it

How many times will you see within 5 min. of each other Phil wiff a flop shot, Tiger chunk one in the bunker and Ernie put a ball in the water with a fairway wood.

Just goes to show you they do make mistakes.

Dude that was all in like one minute! It was ridiculous! When I saw Phil duff it I lost my mind. Then Ernie, then Tiger. Then Ryan Moore made birdie and I started cracking up. I thought Ryan would take the tournament there.

Only Phil could hold it together. He deserved to win, even though Ernie shot a 63---too little and too late, especially with that ball into the water. Tiger was never really a contender.

Seems like if your in the final group on the last day you ARE a contender.
I want a Tiger PEZ dispenser. Hmmm PEZ, pixie sticks in pill form.

I think Tiger lost his concentration and never regained it. After four days of "in the hole" and shutter clicks, he finally succumbed. A lesser player wouldn't have lasted that long.

I absolutely couldn't get over that. I somewhat pulled a double take there and rewound the PVR to watch it again. I don't think I have ever seen anything like that in that short period of time. It was somewhat refreshing though...they sometimes buckle under pressure just like me.

Good for Phil though! I am not a huge lefty fan but he's fun to watch and after the year he has had, it's nice to see.

I completely disagree.

Obviously Tiger always has the biggest gallery, the most attention, the most cameras. But it's his playing companions that have it the worst as people shuffle after Tiger's shots, they bolt from the greens while others are playing, etc. I think Tiger barks more about it than anyone, and he lets it get into his head. The body language difference between him and Phil was incredible. Tiger looked like he wanted no part of being there Sunday. On the other hand, Phil was hamming it up so much the commentators made a comment that he should pay more attention to golf and less to fist bumps with the fans. There has to be a correlation between your mood and your golf (although I'd agree your mood can definitely be affected by your play).

I completely disagree.

So what part do you disagree with? If it's my lesser player comment, let me say that i don't really consider Phil in that category. Being number 2 in the world is nothing to sneeze at.
