Good lord approaches are all plugging. Someone could go real low.

Playing super long though. That might keep scores from getting record breaking low. The long irons are playing really long. Spin control killing the short shots.

Gotta go 1 club longer and swing easy, limiting the spin.

Looks like they're gonna get this thing in today. Got very lucky this morning. I saw the radar up there when I woke up and thought there was no way they were gonna get anything in today, but luckily all the rain had no thunder or lightning attached to it. Just rainy. They can play in that as long as it's not a downpour.

Btw, I said last month, based on WGR, Grace may be next in line to win a major for best player never to win one. He's up there. The guy has been close more than Rickie has.

Btw, you also said 3 different times it was going to be a Monday finish. I think you have better shot at that, than Grace winning.

Jimmy Walker is quite the billboard. I count 6 endorsements and 8 logos. I bet with HD logos have gotten smaller. 

Caught up with yesterday's broadcast. During a swing analysis, Kostis said Day's hook was because of a heel strike. Slow motion showed center face contact clearly. That was a totally 1=2 vibe. 

Those spectators with the huge beer cans.

Anyone besides me having a hard time staying awake? I don't find the course design all that interesting, and nobody is making any kind of a birdie run. Maybe the fatigue of 36 is crushing them.

Yes, although I'm not trying very hard. ;-)

Even though it hasn't greatly affected anything, the lack of re-pairing after Round 3 has given this a weird vibe. Lift, clean and place is also odd. It just doesn't feel like a major in some ways.

Ha - I just woke up from a 2 hour nap watching the pga, lol.  It has been strange, that's for sure.  Having so many of the top 10 in the clubhouse already is throwing me off . . .I'm hoping for some excitement and cohesion at the end.

Jimmy Walker holing out from the bunker!

Def rooting for him to win his first major.  Seems like a good guy who has won multiple times on tour so it's the next logical thing to cement him as an elite player, IMO. 

And Jason Day says, "hi, I'm number 1 in the world and I'm matching your birdie with a 22 foot putt of my own."  Haha.

Funny how the last 2 minutes has made me look like an idiot. Still feel the course isn't really a great major set-up, though. Wide fairways, big flat greens, and only moderate rough.

I guess I started watching at the right time.
