I like the leaderboard right now, would be happy with any of them taking it. Hell, even Spieth... I feel he has been humbled a little bit after all the struggles. I don't dislike him that much anymore 😅

The big question is does the course play like it did before the storm delay or after? Will someone have to go out and win it or will it be about not losing it?

Isn’t that the question every year, pretty much every tournament? And usually it’s a combination, some move up, some move down...

I really like this leaderboard.  Will be pulling for Hideki but would be fine with any of the guys at -7 winning it too.  I've loved his ball striking since I first saw him at the Masters and am a Srixon fanboy, so it would be sweet.  It may be Leishman's turn to get hot, though.  He can definitely get in a zone and stay there.  

I have definitely seen Hideki talking with non-Japanese on the course, even if just short clips so I think it's pretty clear that he understands most of what he hears in conversational English and can communicate at least in phrases.  I guess he just isn't confident enough to try to speak a response on TV.   

I’m sure that he wants the full translation so he doesn’t answer incorrectly. You know how people are, one “bad” answer and he would get eaten alive.

I would count anyone out that’s in that -4 range. Hideki could easily go +2 if everything dries up again. I’m pulling for Conners really enjoy watching him play but my gut is saying Zalatoris is going to take it. Kids playing and having fun, seems very care free isn’t going to let that sunday get jnto his head (all gut feeling just what I have seen him doing on the course this weekend)

I’m not sure I understand the criticisms of Matsuyama’s English - who turned pro in 2013. American pros play in other countries year after year and few if any make an effort to learn other languages, do you also fault them? There are way more foreigners who speak English than vice versa, who are we to criticize?

Edit: From what I read online, he does speak English and continues to improve but he chooses not to 1) to avoid embarrassing himself should he misunderstand a reporter, 2) his accent is pretty strong, and 3) it slows down US reporters from hounding him (Japenese media does). Sounds reasonable for a non-native English speaker. And if you watch him at press conferences it looks like he does understand some questions by his facial expressions.

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

I think he can understand and converse more than know.
I believe he stills lives in Japan and his wife and daughter are there.

Personally I would love to see Spieth put together a charge but I just don’t see it, his putting seems to be a bit off to me, or at least not at his best.

Hideki, I don’t know...nothing against him but you have to believe they cranked up the sub-air looking to avoid the softer greens he got after the rain delay.  Combine that with the weight of an entire country on his shoulders, and I’m betting he falls off.

I picked Zalatoris to win early this year.  He is certainly a great ball striker, but I was hesitant about his putting at Augusta.  He did quite well!  I wouldn't mind seeing him win either.  

He looks like he’s ready to go surfing after his round[emoji12]

I'm hoping the back 9 is exciting and Hideki just doesn't run away with it. Neutral on him as a player so if he wins, good for him, but hoping it's at least a close finish.  Zalatoris would be very interesting and I have Schauffele in a pool so we will see.
