Can the world #1 overcome possible issues with his toothsome girlfriend or a sore tooth and the world #3 issues with, well, who knows what to put on a good show this week?

Oh yeah. I guess Tiger's win bumped him up to #2. :)

Ha, I was wonder what the deal with that comment was. I thought Erik had some inside info on Luke Donald.

Tee times are out: 1-24 are grouped according to the OWGR, McIlroy, Woods and Donald together.

I wonder if Tiger will play the 18th as bad as he did play the 6th last week. Both long par 4 with water on the left from tee to green.

Looking forward to this. Not sure Donald will be pleased being lumbered with the cursed Nike brothers.

Tigs and Rors both need to load up on some body armor. Plenty of peeps will be taking shots at them. The tour is turning into a traveling circus.

I hope it is not like the last week where #1 and 2, for all intend and purposes, invisible.

I hope at least one of them makes a run at it on the weekend, otherwise it will be boring IMO.

Yes.  I was hoping for Tiger to make a charge, but he ended up going the other direction on Sunday.

I really like this swing of tournaments. This is really when the PGA tour hits its stride for me. Being a big Tiger fan, I did enjoy watching him win at Torrey, but the Match Play and Honda Classic really get me excited for the season. And now the blue monster!

I'm thinking that Tiger contends, and maybe that pushes Rory a bit, but who knows. If I had to pick a winner, (besides Tiger), I'd say Hunter Mahan, if only because we share a name.

I'm pumped!  I like the parings based on OWGR.  I think it creates a large amount of interest for us fans watching to see the groupings in this fashion.

I wonder how much chatting Tiger and Rors will be doing on the course.  We'll see how it goes!

I think Rors bounces back and plays well this weekend.

    • Shot 80 yesterday which is my best score since starting up golf again last year. I was 2 under after 7 so part of me feels a little bit disappointed that I let it slip!   I was feeling so good on the tee at 8 that I thought I'd hit a little draw into the lateral slope of the fairway to get a better position.  Unfortunately my ball missed the ground and went into the trees.  Took a few holes to get the wheels back on and back to playing shots I can actually hit.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good.
