Never mind. Tiger missed that putt on 13. Something's not right. Is Elin about to give birth again or something? I think he needs to switch to a long putter. Seriously, I think 13 was his tourney. He'll come in second, looking to surpass Nicklaus's re… more »

Peter Kostis on 13: "This is a delicate shot." I'm going to say that it's also Tiger's tourney. That ball goes in on 13, after driving into the pine straw, and he wins. Period. Now with a certain birdie, and 2nd place, well, there is hope. Although… more »

Whoa. Did anyone else just see Steve Flesch's ball plummet into Rae's Creek? I swear it looked like it hit a branch--a non-existent branch--that knocked it down. The wind appeared to have literally swatted that ball down, changing its direction in a spli… more »

Well, well, well. So Tiger decided to hit one big shot, a long birdie putt. It's just a birdie, and he's still 5 strokes back, but already the announcers are jumping onto the "Tiger's Stalking" theme. He's going to have to get closer that that to make an… more »

Computer graphics can be pretty cool, but the graphic hole renderings don;t do anything for me. Looks like a scene from Golden Tee or some golf simulator. What I do like is the graphic that traces a line along the ball flight of players' drives. That'… more »

OK--I'm going to say this right now: Someone needs to step up and deliver a stellar back nine, or I might not even watch this collective stumblefunk to the end. Perhaps the biggest myth in golf is that contenders wilt under the steely gaze of El Tigre.… more »

Little-known Tiger factoid: Tiger's been using the same Ping grip on his putter (or at least the same model of Ping grip) since high school. Because he's not associated with Ping, though, he blacks out the PING on the grip with a Sharpie. The putter itse… more »

Tiger and Cink both missed those birdie putts. This doesn't portent well for either, especially Tiger. The thing about Tiger is, he expects so much of himself, that when he does not live up to those expectations, he gets down on himself. It's as if he… more »

Once again, I'm wrong. Immelman is hanging on and playing well (and he's only got one 'n' in his name). Snedeker is going to be tough, but he's been too inconsistent today.Sweet Smokin' Moses! No one in the history of the world has ever swung as hard… more »

The partnership of Exxon-Mobile and Phil & Amy Mickelson is admirable because, as the commercial says, science and math are critical to our youths and to our nation and world. My question is this, however: Why is the NAtional Science Foundation's… more »

My bad! FLesch plays Cleveland (mainly). He switched from Titleist last year, and his game has continued to return to him after the switch. So, two times players have grounded their putter behind the ball, and the ball has moved, costing them each a… more »

It's quite remarkable the extent to which Nike staff players have come to dominate Tour leaderboards. Tiger, naturally, but also Stewart Cink, Trevor Immelman, and Paul Casey. Tbe only interruption in this Swoosh parade in the last few minutes was Brandt… more »

"real-time blogginf?" Crap. Cink falls back one. It's official: I'm the kiss of death. Let's try this: Tiger will shoot 96 and dissolve into tears on 18th green, where he vows to quit golf and take up bowling. Hey, if I'm going to be wrong anywa… more »

One of my brothers-in-law has an amusing mind-trick that he uses when things are going badly on the course. He imagines that guys like us--average golfers--are the best players in the world. In other words, the shots we hit are the best that can be execu… more »

Ahh...Masters sponsors... Exxon-Mobile: "How's $4 per gallon sound to you? Sounds GREAT to us!" AT&T: "We're listening (and we're sharing what we hear with the government)." What happened to Cadillac, BTW? Losing too much money not selling g… more »
