Saved a shot or two with that chip after the first pitch. Good damage control. A few more birdies or even eagle coming in would be nice now.

This is far from over. 16 resulted in a two-shot swing in favor of Rose. Rory is also right back there. Whatever happens today, Tiger will be in the last group tomorrow. When was the last time he was in such a spot? Has he been in the last group since 2013?

Tiger and I would like to thank you all for your support. It's been a long and arduous road, and a year ago we weren't sure where we would be at the end of this season. But you all believed in us, and

WOOOO! After five years.

Disappointing finish after a great drive, but that's what it is. Can't be upset about a 65 round on Saturday. Still leading by three.

Yeah and pretty damn good considering every poor shot of Rosie’s got a break and every poor Tiger shot got screwed.

I was rooting against Rose all day because he needs to finish T5 or worse for Tiger to win the Cup, but on the last hole, I was rooting for Rose to make a birdie so he's paired with Tiger again tomorrow. 

Tiger has been driving it great, IMO because he's stopped trying to kill it, and that worked well paired with Rose.  But paired with Rory, I have to wonder how many times Tiger gets outdriven by 30 yards before he starts swinging too hard.

I would be fine with Tiger winning the tournament and Rose the cup, but I would not file a protest if Tiger snagged both.

Tiger and Rory will be a very fun group to watch.

42 of 44 closeouts when leading at 54 hole mark.  Never lost with a 3+ stroke lead at 54 hole mark.  Really looking forward to tomorrow.  I just hope @colin007 can survive it.  👍

Honestly, if it happens, I will most likely get emotional. I'm not too proud to not admit that. I'm so proud of him.

I've been teasing you all year about your rooting for him so hard. You always take it so well, both from me and others. But guess what? I'll be rooting for him tomorrow just so you can get to see him win again. Hope tomorrow turns out the way you want, buddy!

I was thinking this exactly. Another reason I’d like Tiger to have someone to keep him cool. He’s gonna have to let Rory bomb it and not care about it. Just play his own game and let it go.

It's all good bro, I'm an unapologetic fanboy. My story isn't any different from many others, he's the reason why I took up the game, watching him play well moves me more than any other sport or hobby.

Schedule cleared for tomorrow!  I had planned to watch the Tour Championship anyway, but with Tiger leading going in, nothing's keeping me away.

Except golf practice in the morning to get video for evolvr.

I was going to say that McIlroy isn't hitting it that much further than Tiger, but then I looked at the numbers. Rory is averaging 320 yards per drive to Tiger's 303, which is kind of nuts. Tiger is a long hitter already, but Rory is definitely a ways longer.

23 year old Cameron Champ will be playing on the PGA Tour next year. He's currently averaging 343.4 yards on the Web.com Tour. Next behind him is Brandon Matthews with 333.7. Champ's average is based on 113 drives and he's hit 67% of the fairways. Rory is averaging 320 this year. They are of course playing on different tours and courses, but it will be interesting to see how he does on the PGA Tour. He's swinging over 130 mph with ball speeds over 190.

    • Sometimes I hate golf.1 Just flushed ten balls in a row. Swing to 2, look to make sure left wrist is slightly cupped (easy). Swing to 4 feeling it is adding a little cupping (it stays about the same). Hit it. FLUSH. Such a dumb sport. With like no margins of error. And one of like 50 things can go wrong in the smallest way at any given moment. 1 Not really.
    • They're different models of the ball. So they're two separate entries on the conforming ball list. So you've technically "changed balls." That's all.
    • Welcome back. See ya around…😃
    • I’ve done 54 on the same course a couple of times.   Always cart because they weren’t easily walkable.  I was able to keep my focus because my third round of the day was the best.     lot of weekends in my 20s, in walked and carried my bag for 36 each day.
    • I googled the reason for it and it also mentions that you also can’t change ball color as well for an advantage, but I’m having trouble coming up with something where the ball color changing during a round would be some type of advantage.   In other words, you can’t even use the exact same ball model with different colors in a round, anyone come up with changing ball color during the round somehow would help?
