What about Gmac and Bjorn? Not a Tiger-hater but c'mon, there are other stories in the field.



Rory isn't returning form a long hiatus from competitive golf, is not the former dominating Number 1, didn't crash his car into a fire hydrant, have sex with multiple woman while married, do a terrible 'apologetic' press conference, fire his swing coach, fire his caddy or change his entire swing

Tiger Woods is more interesting I guess?

Rory played well no doubt, and I liked Gmacs shot off the grandstand to 6 feet.

This thread is in need of a little relaxitude adjustment.

For reals. Pre-game at 10PM Eastern, 7PM Pacific, and live coverage starts 10:30/7:30 on TGC. Tiger's group tees off at 10:40, so you'll see his whole round.

Quote: "And I don't like the grandstand rule with the free drop right next to the green..." I agree - the ball should be played as it lies.

Rory made the Wozzilroy sandwedge, I think that's pretty badass!

I don't think two bad pitches over the course of an entire round equates to needing a "LOT of work."

With how poorly he drove the ball and how bad his distance control with his approach shots during the final round, it's somewhat of an achievement that he broke even par.

Regarding some other comments about still not being mentally ready, I actually think he is.  I don't think he had a mental issue yesterday, I believe it was technical.  My rationale is that, if his ball striking were this poor during a round over the past two seasons, he would likely have shot 76+.  He didn't have the short game or the mental toughness to stay with it when things were going poorly the past couple years.  He has been rebuilding that, and his short game was pretty good during the final round.

Barf.

Did he give her one with a stiff shaft?



A bit lame for sure, but it's just a wedge. It's easier to replace a wedge than a tattoo.

Great win for Rock. With his good looks and after beating Tiger and Rory in convincing fashion, he should be a big star in Europe now.



Ummmmm, I would hardly say beating Rory by 1 stroke and Tiger by 2 strokes is beating them in "convincing" fashion. The tournament could have very easily gone Rory or Tiger's if it weren't for a few mistakes/bad breaks.

Funniest part about that is the raised rear (left) leg.

Is it not acrobatic enough to do that pose with the left foot on the ground?  He has to raise it into the air like he's using it as a weathervane?

You're right, it wasn't a huge margin of victory. But it was convincing in the sense that he didn't back into it, or have any lucky bounces like McDowell. He beat Tiger head to head, he played beautifully the entire round, he only hit one bad shot, and he took his medicine for that. He sure convinced me that he is a world class player.
