The WGC, PGA and then the Playoffs.  Such a great month to be a golf fan!

You could find the negative in a person being rescued from a burning building by a dog.

Please do this in a major, Tiger. Pretty please? With sugar on top?

He should stick to his NBA coaching gig.

Tiger finally made a birdie.  Otherwise this has been boring.  He is boringly good today.  I think I'm leaving to go to the range.  Somebody needed to shoot a 31 or lower to give this some drama, but ...nada!

I'm waiting until it's over to head to the range. That is the downside of Tiger leading by 8 strokes. Not a lot of fun to watch as far as drama.

Rather boring with his lead and the fact the course doesn't seem create some challenges- feels like a Florida event, flat and unpretentious.

maybe its just me having watched both opens....

Choking???  Where?  Nobody else is doing anything to make him take any risks, so he's just shooting for pars.  Nothing more than a practice round as far as he's concerned.  It certainly isn't choking.

It's the nature of Firestone. It's a relentless challenge of long-ass par 4's. Not the kind of course you can really mount a comeback on. You have to hope the leader stumbles, like Furyk last year.

Well, #79 in the books.

If nothing else, this may have been a decent test for Tiger in holding a huge lead going into the weekend.  He didn't come back to the field either day.  It was also a pretty stress-free round for him, as opposed to yesterday.  Not as many scrambling pars, and lots of tap ins.

Way I see it, unless one of the 3 major winners this year (Scott, Rose or Mickelson) wins the PGA Championship, Tiger is your Player of the Year.

Yep. Not even close!

I thought Phil's victory at Muirfield would at least open the door to the possibility of Player of the Year honors, which he has never won. But a five-two difference in the win column is too wide for consideration even with the major hardware. A win at Oak Hill or a FedEx Cup season title for Phil would give the players something to think about, but Tiger takes the honors again in any other scenario.

Agreed.  Tiger has a huge lead in the FedEx cup now...  The only way someone like Phil wins PoY is if he wins another Major or FedEx cup IMO.

That was obviously a joke after his only bogey of the day.

At this point last year, it looked like Woods was going to win PoY. Let's wait until the playoffs are over.

My stat is for OWGR not FedExCup, but the lead Tiger has over Phil in OWGR is the lead Phil has over #35 in the world Martin Kaymer.

I think its getting old, and not even funny any more. It was funny for about 5 seconds the first time somebody said something like this, like what 3 years ago.

Come on people act like adults please. Good greif.

I can't imagine it getting better this week with a rowdy, drunk, NY crowd. The goons were in full force last year at Bethpgae when I attended the weekend rounds. I can only imagine what it's going to be like this week. Not to brush with broad strokes, but there's something about a lot of NY sports fans - they seem to take acting like complete SOB's as a point of pride.

    • I just signed up for a C-19 shot this coming wednesday. Being 65 I am in the early wave of eligibility. 
    • I did this before with the Mevo which verified my distances being the same (see above), but was hitting into a net so near impossible to discern trajectory. I wasn’t awarded the badge and I assume that was why. I have it go at the range today and my two ball landed 5-8yds from one another.  
    • We're back, and I thought I'd add a few comments on the places we played.  I want to thank everyone who posted suggestions throughout the life of this thread, it was very helpful.  I'll arrange these comments from least favorite to most favorite. Mission Inn - Las Colinas.  Our first day of golf, the layout is pretty decent, with small greens and some really narrow driving areas.  There's a bit of vertical relief as well.  But the course was in so-so condition, thin grass in the fairways, and some patchy areas (repaired with plugs and still healing) on the greens. Falcon's Fire.  A nice layout, moderately flat, decent shape.  We had the coldest and windiest weather playing here.   Shingle Creek - Not particularly demanding, but really nice condition.  Another pretty flat course, which is pretty much what I expected for Florida golf.   A lot of lateral water, but lots of room off the tee as well.  This round was the slowest of the week, a bit over 4-1/2 hours. Southern Dunes - A bit out of town to the south, this course had much more severe slopes, lots of sand, really large really undulating and really fast greens.  REALLY fast.  Also, really friendly service. Orange County National.  We played Crooked Cat first, and decided to play Panther Lakes a few days later.  Really well conditioned, ample elevation changes (not as much as Southern Dunes), reasonably demanding shot requirements, this is a really good facility all the way around.  On the other hand, its a bit of a "golf factory", so service seemed a little less personal.  Also, the practice range is a long way from the main clubhouse, so if you're going here, allow extra time for check-in and warm-up.
