Gotta give credit where credits due.... Tiger played an excellent round not playing for as long as he was off. But Freddy was lights out as well as Tom Watson. Some great rounds from the elder statesman. Hope every round is as good as today! The shot Tiger hit on 9 the second shot was unbelievable 207 out, hooked a 5 iron fantastic. Only Tiger can hit a shot like that and make the birdie!

I agree. If Tiger hits his irons, and his driver to some extent, the rest of the way like he did today, he will win easy. Freddie and Watson will pose an interesting challenge, that's for sure.

Seems to me like the putter is the real issue, as it has been the last few years. In the bit that I was able to watch, he missed at least 2 putts that you would expect him to make. If he gets 1 round where he makes all of those, you can start etching his name on the trophy. If he has 4 rounds of "coulda shouldas" then it'll be another Top 5 finish.

It's only one day, but I would say that is easy money. His nerves would have to be at the peak today, and as the weekend progresses, he will relax more and go low...

Did anyone else notice Vijay using a Srixon Yellow?

 

Furyk used the Yellow yesterday in the Par 3.... He should have stayed with it in round 1, lol. Just a routing 36-44... lol. In the words of Homer.... "Doh!"

 

***routine*** "Doh!" on my part ;)

Watched the full coverage on BBC HD last night until nearly 1AM. Some great golf by the old hands, esp one of the best shots I've seen before on TV, not so much because it was a 50 yd draw around a tree to 15ft (Tiger's shot, you know the one), but because the camera showed the ball trajectory on contact, and they didn't cut to a totally pointless shot of a shaky white ball against a cloudy sky, Never understood why TV companies insist on showing us that...

 

I reckon KJ might have the steely resolve to shoot another low one today, as will Tiger (those two really seemed to have connected during the round, I felt a bit sorry for Kuchar)...

 

Poor day for the Brits though, other than Westwood and Poults, oh, and great to see Sandy Lyle back in the thick of it. Can't see that lasting though ;)

 

All in all, I can't wait to see todays play.

Tiger once again could have been even lower but some of those birdies he did make they were clutch. He should have made birdies on 16,17 his pace is good but his line or what he feels the breaks are haven't apanned out. But looking at Westwood and Poulter today along with Phil this could shape up to a great finish. For tiger to even be in the hunt is an accomplishment for sure. I'd like to see any of these other players miss 5 months then have their first Tourney back be the Masters and play like this guy. No mattter all the s*** he pulled off the course he's still the best golfer in Augusta this week. No one who misses that much time would be in this posistion first event out, but Tiger has a history of winning his first event he plays every year and this one is looking pretty good for another green jacket. Only time will tell. It sure is better with him playing then not!

What is the bet for, Nic? Did you have to give him odds to get Tiger? If not, I need friends like that.

Tiger finishes in the top 10, I win $$$, he finishes out of the top 10, I lose $$$. I like my chances.

Tiger certainly has shown, once again, that he has the raw nerves and mental fortitude like none other. It really seems like he may just not give a damn about anything except that damn ball and getting it in the damn hole in as few damn strokes as possible.

 

 

The reports are that Elin is not happy that he's back to playing golf so soon.

I was sorry to hear that Couples dropped back to the field after waking up with a bad back. That's a shame because he probably could have contended if he was 100% healthy. But, that has been Freddy's problem all along...

 

Mickelson came within a long putt on 18 of being paired with Tiger today. How huge would that have been?

All last year he only finished out of the top 10 about 3 or 4 times. I like your odds.

 

In 2009 Tiger finished out of Top 10, 2 times out of 22 events with 1 missed cut. Tiger had 9 wins, 4 -2nd's, 1-4th,

3-6th's, 1-8th , 1-9th, an 11th and a 17th. Not too shabby. The only risk was not knowing this year because of the situation surrounding the layoff. It wasn't the same as healing an injury. But it's always hard to bet against the Best player ever!

Of course, I sat Freddy for his good round, and played him for his poor round. B)

 

You n me both Jamo. I had Tiger out for first two rounds and he's my favorite player. I tried using my brain instaed of heart and you see where that got me! I had Westwood in and decided after listening to the experts to pull him art last minute and put in Furyk, like a fool. My original group would have been Tiger,Westwood,Couples,Schwartzel.Instead I put in EE,KJ,Retief,DD

If Phil would drop off a bit and Stricker plays better this weekend, I am going to be one happy camper. Hopefully the English group continues to play well.

 

You're dissing Phil and rooting for the Euros? Wow.
