    So of those at -7.  Who shoots the lowest round tomorrow?  What do they shoot and is it enough to overtake Hideki. 
     

    I hope Hideki pulls it off.  Out of the -7’s, Rose and Leishman wouldn’t be bad... if not one of those 3, Jordan would be the only other player left in the field that If like to see win. Except Stenson, but he’s too far back.

    I'm a fan but after playing here for as long as he has you would think he wouldn't need a translator.  

    I remember an interview from a while ago, he said they always talk to him with a translator but he can speak English well.  I think...?  Maybe it was someone else

    Sorry, this is off topic for the thread but I had to bring up my awful experience with Bubba.

    I was his standard bearer at the PGA Championship in 2011. The night before the first round he had a fan event at the local PGA Superstore and didn't speak a word to anyone. Just kept his head down, signed whatever you had, and moved on to the next item. He cancelled the long drive contest for that event too, said he didn't have time for that "crap". I shrugged it off thinking he was just feeling ill or something.

    The next day is when I was standard bearer for his group. We had an 8:45 tee time and rounding out our group was Ian Poulter and Jeff Overton. On the 1st hole (our 10th), Bubba hit a bad drive followed by a poor approach that left him in the sand. While walking to our spot behind the green, Bubba starts yelling at me and the walking scorer and then cusses at us while leaving to go to the next hole. He shot glares at me the entire rest of the round. Ted Scott apologized multiple times and said Bubba gets this way sometimes. The other players gave me their autographed ball after the round and Bubba brushed by me and took off. Ted asked if I even wanted a ball from him considering the way he was acting and I said sure so he got me one. I didn't do anything to deserve how he treated me and it was super embarrassing for the entire gallery to see it. I was a huge fan leading up to that week but now he's my least favorite person I've ever had the displeasure of meeting.

    And my friends with Tour connections have all confirmed that he isn't very likeable and they weren't surprised with what happened. Anyway, story time is over.

    Yeah. That sucks, sorry you had a bad run in with him.

    Was pretty surprised to see a position open up to work at Gillette stadium in facilities. Just applied, not expecting much as its a leap frog over a Senior Facilities Manager that I have not worked as yet but.....F it worth a shot. 

    The Blue Wahoo’s need a facility manager.  Walked by there and every alarm in their pump room was going off... sounded like the electric light orchestra.  Give Bubba a shout... 🙃

    That's fair; honestly I don't dislike the guy...the caricatures and impressions of him are just funny to me.

    Definitely adds some flare to the game, unlike some of the blander players out there... like I can’t get excited for golf when Kuchar, or say Xander are in the lead... it’s just dry, boring golf. 🤣

    My only guess is players were slotted by world rankings, and before Sunday's win, I think i heard he was barely in the Top 100, and they obviously put this together prior to last weekends tournament. 

    🤦🏼‍♂️ I made a mistake.... 😳

    I am secretly holding out hope that CBS Boots Faldo and Jim Nantz gives us the "From the Augusta National Golf Club, CBS Sports proudly presents The Masters...Hello, Friends, Jim Nantz along with my friend Tony Romo."

     

     

     

    Or “Hello Friends, Jim Nantz along with my good friend Tiger Woods.”   ???
