Were you able to see this live somewhere?  I'm following on Shot Tracker, and was surprised that his first putt went in because I thought I remembered it being outside of 30'.

Which brings me to my second question: is there no way to go to previous holes/shots using Shot Tracker?  It seems like once that last putt went in for that hole, you can't check any of the prior info (driving distance, proximity to hole, etc).

I saw it on the live leaderboard on pgatour.com. I think I can see some older info on my phone (Android, with PGA Tour app), but the app keeps auto-quitting on me today.

Holy crap, you can watch it live on the app today.  That's the first time I've seen an option to watch it live.

It also force closed on me the first time I opened it (Galaxy Nexus).  It's the only app I've had FC on me in a while.

Edit: looks like the footage is only of holes #14 & #17, and is also available on the PGA Tour website.  Still not bad though.  Hopefully they will do this more often.  One of the reasons I love the NFL Network app is because you get the Red Zone channel and Sunday/Monday night streams.

If you click on an individual golfer, or his group, you get a screen that just shows that golfer or group. You can then click on a hole number (on the list of holes above the map of the hole) to "replay" that hole. It also lets you select previous rounds.

International flights and crossing time zones takes a major toll on your body even if you fly business class, not to mention the time they lose being at home.  I don't blame these guys for not wanting to put themselves through it right before a Major.  Rory isn't going to be here to defend his win at Congressional this year because it's on the same date as the Ireland Open, sometimes life happens.  IMO Arnie needs to get over it.


One little note Donald lives in Chicago and he did play last week in Tampa so the fact of flying internationally wouldn't really apply to him. Regardless I don't care if they play or not there's plenty of talent there to make it worth watching. If Palmer wants to call them out again fine by me it's his tournament and he wants it to be as successful as possible Rory and Luke would certainly add to the draw.

Now back on topic... I really want to see Dufner hold it together and get a W but McDowell was impressive today.

This may be an issue with my browser then (or my pop-up blocker).  Whenever I click on anything that you guys have suggested (which I've done numerous times before today) all that happens is the page refreshes.

Shot Tracker doesn't work at all for me with Firefox, and I've given up trying to figure out what the problem is, because I don't want to turn off any of my add-ons. But it does work for me with vanilla IE (on Win7-64), and that's all I ever use IE for.

Well, this is very weird.  All of a sudden it works.  I've been using shot-tracker for about 3-4 tournaments so far, and I've never been able to zoom in on a specific golfer, group or hole.  But after I posted that it doesn't work, now it does :)

Anyway, Tiger definitely has all parts of his game working now.  It seems like he's been on the precipice for a while, but the short game would always leave him at some point.  Not today.  And the driving has been great.  He's 139 yards out on the 18th fairway for a potential 64.

Still some distance control issues, and a few wayward tee shots, but that's just another way of saying he's not absolutely perfect. If he can shoot a 65 every day, I like his chances at Augusta.

The Live Coverage announcers said Dufner will be in the final group, unless Wi overtakes him.

Oops, I forgot they were still on assigned groups today. I assumed McDowell finished first because he had the lower score.

Tiger turns in a bogey-free 65 and has sole command of the lead at the moment. Here's looking forward to a great weekend!

Too bad Charlie made a bogey on 18. Him and Tiger would've been a cool final group.

I was enjoying this tournament,but now i know who the winner is so there is no need to watch the rest.The commentators at the golf channel already have given woods the trophy though.

Wi just sank a long birdie where it REALLY count. Tiger is a competitor, that's for sure, but he is by no means the dominant player in this tournament. Anyone betting on Tiger at this point is taking as big a chance as someone betting on anyone else close to the lead.

Sounds cool but completely false.  They did no such thing.  Why do you need to prevaricate (a nice way of saying lie)?  They said that they needed to see how he played with the lead and that just as Tiger said there is still along way to go.  Which commentators do you claim gave Tiger the trophy and what exactly did they say?  I still have the 2nd round and Golf Central on TIVO and would like to see.

    • I wasn't looking at win totals. I looked at how guys from older eras did against players who were on tour during Tigers era. How do you explain Raymond Floyd and Tom Watson and Hale Irwin?  Floyd wasn't at the very top playing against Nicklaus. He also missed quite a few cuts. Yet he was ranked 12th in 1992 and in the top 10 in his late 40s. One of three things has to be true. 1. Floyd got much better as he approached 50  or 2. The fields got much better between 1992 and 1996. or 3. There were more good players than being given credit for. Floyd didn't dominate playing against 1970s fields. He wasn't really close to being the best player.   1 and 2 seem rather unlikely. Since 3 seems most likely and since most of the players I listed above had better records playing directly against Floyd a reasonable conclusion is the fields were not substantially weaker at the top in 1976 vs 1996. Ben Crenshaw won a Master's in 1995. Hale Irwin won a US Open in 1990. This wasn't that long ago.  
    • Just got a pellet grill/smoker delivered yesterday, I went with the RecTeq RT 340 and really like it so far.  Made my first meal on it last night, bone in chicken thighs. They turned out amazing. I used Kosmos Q Spicy Chipotle Honey Killer Bee rub and smoked them at 225 for about 20-30 minutes then cranked the heat to 425 and flipped them once until they were at an internal temp of 165. I am making more for some friends today and I will do the same method except I will bring the heat up to 450 maybe even 475 to get the skin just a tad bit crispier. I am also making a smoked queso dip today as well which I will share pictures of The grill -   The chicken -

    • Found this topic while looking for a different one, but lawncare is one of my other primary hobbies besides golf. Here are a couple shots of mine from this past season. Just did the last mow of the year last weekend. Back in May after a double cut   And in September - can see my hot peppers growing back in the garden too. I grew 8 plants this year and easily got a couple hundred peppers
    • My family came from Detroit, and even though I grew up in northern Virginia, we'd visit Detroit every summer.  My grandfather lived really close to Chandler Park, but on occasion we drove "all the way out there" to Plumbrook.  I was really just starting the game in high school, so my memories of it are pretty hazy, but it was a real treat at that time.
