Who will win? Ben Crane. Not sure why. Is Tiger playing? :-)

I'll go out on a limb, but not too far..  I'll go with a new winner this week, someone that hasn't won yet in 2011.. Ya'll pick from there.. LOL  I'll go with Trevor I.

Going on Saturday with Senorchipotle.  Really enjoy Colonial, with the tee boxes close to the previous green, very easy to have multiple sight views, and makes for easy walking.  I think Jason Duffner, Brian Gay, and Brian Davis will do well.

I'll be there on Saturday too, and I have to agree about how easy it is to watch and navigate the course. As for winner I'm going with the obvious, Jason Day. He's been having a great season so far and plus home course advantage right? It'll definitely be a great tournament to say the least.

Yep, Jason Day should do well--he's playing great.  Enjoy the tourney (bring an umbrella--early forecast is for 40% chance scattered showers on Saturday)

AK playing well. I really want him to hold it together for 4 days. He is a great player to watch.

So, he is my pick.

84% FIR

100% GIR

-5 through 7

1.286 putts per green

Phenomenal playing.

Survived the big storm, and really enjoyed friday. Toms hit some great irons and had a second straight 62. Sure par is 70 but still that is amazing.

Wi has played great. The stack & tilt swing is getting good exposure with his great shot making. My only additional observation is it sure looked to me like he has shifted to a slightly modified s&t; swing. His right leg is more flexed throughout the swing and he looks bit more traditional than the swings he has on the tv ads for s&t.; He looked very centered and balanced but not as pure s&t; as before. He hits very clean irons and I hope he has a great finish. One other thing is Angel Cabera absolutely kills the ball. On hole 3 where length is superimportant, he hit a. 3wood further than most of the big bitters hit driver (yesterday). He is strong.

Sergio’s time-out of golf hasn’t really done much for him.

He can still be amazing from tee to green, but his putting?


He needs to sort it out quickly as time is passing him by.

Charlie's always done a bit of this. You raise a good point. S&T; is not about making everyone "look" a certain way. If Charlie was having trouble getting enough turn - or he wanted to hit the ball farther - he might turn his hips more. As it is, for him, he turns his hips "enough" and allows his hips to work in the proper geometry - the right hip raises, the left knee increases flex, and the hips slant contribute to the inclination to the ground.

Charlie definitely does not "maintain the (same) flex" in his right knee, though, and that's the main point... the right knee will decrease flex throughout the backswing to allow the right hip to raise, the shoulders to turn fully, and the hips to rotate.

I think Toms will come back something fierce today. Looking forward to a good final round, though.

That's all I meant with my comments. He is still stacked and the right leg does straighten but I was used to seeing his swing on the tv commercial and in real life under the gun of competition it somehow looked different. It would be nice if toms makes a good run today.

There's a good example of how you bounce the club to relieve tension. He's been putting so well, can't start running the putts long now. 3 birdies and 2 bogies, I'm optimistic, but he must avoid the bogies.

    • The Florida sun is no joke, especially in the summer.  With that said, the trunk is a better option than in the cabin if you have to leave your bag in your car.  I avoid leaving anything valuable in my car for fear of theft and I consider my clubs valuable.  My truck doesn't have a trunk, but even then its just something I don't even chance.  The other heat sensitive item has got to be shoes. You will be on the golf course one day and the bottoms will just fall right off.  
    • @Vinsk has pretty clearly summarized the "truth" based on current scientific understanding.  We, meaning somewhere between most and all of us, need to be vaccinated out of concern for society, for every single person we may come into contact with.  To choose not to be vaccinated is to choose to increase the risk of infection for everyone you interact with.  Do you not accept that as reality, or is there some other reason that you would choose not to get vaccinated?
    • Please keep it civil.
    • You know, I don't appreciate being called ignorant, uneducated and a moron just because I have a different opinion than you.  That is what is wrong with people, just because a person has a different opinion doesn't necessarily make them ignorant or stupid or a moron.  I was raised differently.  I was raised to respect a persons opinion and just because it differs than yours, doesn't mean the person is a moron or ignorant.  It means they have a different opinion, and they have a right to that.  Wouldn't discussions be boring if everyone agreed with everyone in the discussion?  During those productive discussions, who says one person is right and one person is wrong? Also, I don't believe in most conspiracy theory's.   You have your opinion, and I have mine.  Just because I don't agree with you  doesn't mean I'm ignorant.  And you are not ignorant either.  Show some respect, man.
    • I think we like Rory and don’t like to see him struggle at times. But golf is hard and he also has been trying a few changes. First, last fall was adding distance which he admits caused problems. Second, he added a high fade to his long irons. Those take time to dial in. Lastly, there are a lot of great golfers out there.
