I'm actually going to get up at 3 every morning to watch. I'd like to see Tiger win just to prove he has still got it. Other than him I'd like to see players like Rory Mcilroy, Dustin Johnson get up. I had a punt on Francesco Molinari to make top 25 at $4.00. Seems like a good bet to me

i do the same thing for the british open. Die hard!!!

There are a lot of "Sunday" hole locations being used today. I bet the pins will be more accessible tomorrow, and we'll see more birdies.

What are "Sunday hole locations"?

I know the course is set up pretty tough, but I've been pretty underwhelmed with the Golf today.We haven't seen all that many great shots.I'm sure the players are just getting used to tournament conditions out there and it'll improve.. but yeah, today was a bit of a dud in my opinion.

It's the greens, I believe. Not that many people putting well. Lots of short missed putts today.

I think Tiger can get a little carried away with the missed putts. Oh boy, poor me, I missed another one, see?

A freak show because he gets mad at himself? He hates golf? That's pretty subjective and definitely an exaggeration. You can find a reason to hate anybody. Just because somebody doesn't act as you want them to act doesn't mean how they act is evil or "wrong." I've seen plenty of people get just as upset or look astonished when a ball doesn't act the way they want it or expect it to.

Interesting first day - and one that has left me with a quiet smile, as I have a fiver each way on Casey and Poulter - both reasonably long, accurate and good putters. Good at keeping their heads calm, too, these days...

(Have to confess - less happy about the fivers on Westwood and Harrington, atm, and positively distraught about the McIlroy punt!)

Tricky ones. Tucked pins. Sucker pins.

I like tiger but will have to agree with you 100%...

In the past, Tiger would overcome such challenges. Right now, he's lost some of his luster and is in desperate need of finding his mojo again!

Of course Tiger is pissed off, he's the best golfer in the world and he's playing bad golf ( in his standards )....so what's the big deal?

We all get pissed off at the game sometimes, and we are nowhere near his skill level, so he has more reason to be annoyed at his game.

The fact is, the greens weren't in great condition, but he did also mis-read them.....I witnessed the bumpy greens he did too.

The way Tiger is hitting his irons yesterday, I wouldn't be surprised to see him in contention after today's round.

I still think he is the man to beat.

What do we think the cut line is going to be at? I've got Rhys Davies in a pool and he's been looking good so far today, hoping he can get to +4 with another birdie and sneak into the top 60. Thinking scores in the afternoon will be a little higher, so my guess is +5.
