The beautiful Albatross Adam Scott did:

I thought it was funny how they aired an interview with Greg Norman criticizing Tiger's swing, at the same time Tiger was leading the tournament.

John Daly you are an absolute disgrace.

Tiger shoots a 3rd round 75. Seems like he missed 5-6 10ft birdie putts. I was hoping for an better round out of Tiger today.

yep, his driver wasn't helping him either

Wind was up, greens were harder. Seems like i saw him hit more drivers than the first round. I found it strange that for instance the 2nd shot into the par 5 on the front nine, that he tried to play a fade and pulled it. I would've thought a draw off the right edge of the green, at least give yourself a chance to get up and down.

Day and Senden (Last group) struggling on the front nine :s

Hoping that Tiger can win, shot a nice 3 under on the front nine, and is only 3 shots off the lead.

Edit: Magnificent shot from Day - sticks it really close on a par 3. Chalmers - the leader is struggling on a par five.

This is shaping up to be really exciting.

Epic chip in eagle for Tiger, only 1 back from Day and Chalmers.

I have a browser tab open to the leaderboard as I do other things, and I was surprised to refresh to see Tiger go from 3 back to 1 back in only 3 or 4 minutes. Was wondering if he'd pulled off an eagle. He stands a shot, 4 holes to rack up a couple birdies.

He just had a good shot to tie it up after a great long iron over some water on 17, but he missed the 10-15 foot putt.

Pretty good day by Tiger, all in all. He's been really bad on sundays this year, so good to see him play well under a reasonable amount of pressure. HIs ball-striking was really good, though he didn't seem to have much confidence with his driver.

Just saw the highlights.... Pretty awesome round. Big step forward for him.

well, he may not have won outright, but he's the highest ranked american in the tournament by 3 strokes, so i think that would serve to silence those who thought couples was wasting his pick on tiger.

Me on the other side think Mr. Couples is pretty lucky Tiger (sort of) found his game just before the President Cup! :D

His game overall was okay...his irons were solid, short game steady, putting getting better....however his driver...now that's another story !

Very wild...he has A LOT of work to do with that part of his game...this course there are more than 10 holes (including the Par 3's) that you don't need driver....not even 3 wood...

If this were Augusta and he drove it like he did this week, he would be in deep trouble, the way he was driving a couple of misses to the right...but mostly wild misses left..

That's exactly why Tiger was a good pick- most guys have to have their A game to contend while Tiger dominates when he has his A game and can contend with his B game.  As "bad" as Tiger has played the last 2 years, he still only missed 3 cuts, was in the top 10 four times in 21 events and top 25 almost half the time.  Not great numbers for Tiger, but compared to Bill Haas's last 21 events, Tiger made a higher % of cuts and had a higher % of Top 25s.  Same thing when you compare him to Keegan Bradley (with Tiger having as many Top 10s in his last 21 events as Bradley has LIFETIME).

You don't win 14 majors and consistently contend as often as Tiger has just with luck.

Im glad he played well....Good for him and great for golf! As for most comments on Tiger all I can say is jealousy is a terrible thing huh. Anyone who is great at something has just as many dislikes as likes.

Jeez between all the lip outs, missed 5-10fters Tiger could been closer to 20ish or so under. He easily could have won. I think he's certainly on the right track right now. Cant wait to see him and my favorite player Steve Stricker paired up !

I'm pretty sure all the other golfers in the field have the same sad tales to tell of missed putts etc., but as they are not Tiger their woes are not plastered across the back pages of the newspapers.

    • From all I have read, any known long term effects of an mRNA vaccine manifests within the first two months. It does NOT affect genetic makeup since it never enters the nucleus.  Conditions/effects that manifest over longer periods of time are caused by repeat use/exposure at some frequency that builds up incrementally...like.. tobacco or your garden variety narcotics, lead, arsenic, etc. 
    • I read the whole thing. I am thinking a "whole enchilada" badge should be awarded!   Seriously, the experience is playing in a national NCAA championship. While D3 is not as competitive as D1 streaming live on the Golf Channel, it is still the national championship. While no one wants to see their kid card a double or triple to start their round, it is still the national championship.  Oh, and it is competition golf. Everyone knows what they signed up for. The player seemed to accept his fate, and the coach should know better. Sorry but even if you don't have a shot of advancing or winning, you still follow the rules and protect the field.     
    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
