So are we thinking Mike Weir in the '99 PGA (80) or Bob May in '00 (66, forced playoff)?
|2:30||[Comment From Greg ]|
Watching the morning TNT coverage and saw Tiger plow over a 4 year old on the way to the clubhouse without so much as a second look. For a guy who has everything, why not take a second? I get the "laser" focus, but come on - he lost two fans (kid and dad) if not more with that one.
|2:40||[Comment From Chris ]|
Despite me writing here a ton while watching and my displeasure witgh yesterdays conservative nature I hope Tiger is on and hitting middle of greens today with this weather. He'll make a few of the putts and force guys to shoot low. I think he will birdie 2 of the 5s.
|2:44||[Comment From Michael ]|
The streak for the cash golf prop for today is "Tiger Woods wins by 3 or more strokes" vs. "Any other result." Which would you pick and why?
|2:49||[Comment From Andy ]|
If Tiger does squander the lead today and lose, there's going to be some Monday morning quarterbacking on his conservative strategy on Saturday, right? How severe is it going to be, and is it a valid argument that by not firing at the flags Saturday he cost himself a chance?
|3:00||[Comment From Robert (Memphis) ]|
What kind of effect do you thik the weather will have on the greens? Tiger's putting the first two days was much better than yesterday and so far today.
|3:10||[Comment From Todd (Toronto) ]|
The ESPN front page link to your blog teases that Tiger, if he wins, "will have a five-year run that's second to none"... Seems obvious, but are you going to elaborate on that point?
|3:17||[Comment From Steve (Gateshead UK) ]|
How come Lucas Glover is so far under the radar? Not only is he the current US Open champion but he's actually only 4 shots back..All I have read is whether Harrington can catch Woods or the usual articles that basically assume Woods has already won, its like Glover doesn't exist..
|3:25||[Comment From Jonah Kyle ]|
Tiger said "bite" 17 times on the TIVO replay.
|3:26||[Comment From Josh - Minnesota ]|
For what it's worth, it was a 6-iron, not a wedge.
|3:27||[Comment From Dustin B ]|
Poeple were complaining about tiger's use of four letter words. Does that count?
|3:27||[Comment From Laura ]|
I counted 18.

Y.E.Yang, winner of 2009 PGA?. would it be the worst 4 winners of majors in the same year along with Glover, cink and pato cabrera.
|3:58||[Comment From Pat ]|
At this point, it's down to the top 4 guys, right?

he actually has a third initial. S
|4:44||[Comment From Ben (Indiana) ]|
Is it time to consider Soren Kjeldsen a kjustifiable contender?
|4:48||[Comment From Mike (Reno,NV) ]|
Like we said yesterday, Jason, Tiger needed to improve his iron play the most.
|4:53||[Comment From Tom ]|
Tiger will lose this one. First choke job of his career
|4:57||[Comment From Delta from MD ]|
Sobel, really...what can we learn about Tiger Woods that we don't already know?
|5:22||[Comment From Chase ]|
Hey this just in: reading the house healthcare bill, it looks like provison 4325 does give the government the authority to force mental evalutations upon those 13% that have voted Tiger will not win this thing.
|5:25||[Comment From Scotty ]|
Just remember, when Tiger wins. He will say, "I just kept battling." He tends to overthink putts when he gets frustrated, and today I think he is doing that.
|5:34||[Comment From Michael ]|
The last 7 holes are always the greatest with Tiger. He has someone on his heels and the media is trying to create competition via the poor sap who is paired with him and bam! He wins again! Enjoy it, boys and girls.
|5:45||[Comment From tigerfan ]|
Jason, make a call: Is this going in?
|6:00||[Comment From Scott ]|
Maybe Tiger will get aggressive now. He's mostly been a bore to watch the last two days, playing so conservatively. The old Tiger would have gone for the kill yesterday.
|6:07||[Comment From Raymond ]|
I agree with the guy about the old Tiger. I guess we'll never again see the Tiger who ran away with the Masters.
|6:12||[Comment From Chuck ]|
Anyone who finds Tiger's play boring knows nothing about the game of golf. He's arguably a better player than ever before. I think Tiger raised the bar of competition and other players are raising their levels of play.
|6:38||[Comment From Drew ]|
Yes, my stress level has far surpassed that of my wedding and birth of my first born. I'm calling in sick as we speak, regardless of the outcome. I'm exhausted.
|7:11||[Comment From Warren ]|
Results pending following a motion by Norm Coleman to verify the scorecards. j/k
|7:11||[Comment From Shaun from Philadelphia ]|
Is it safe to say that Yin was Yang's partner today? Because he looked perfectly balanced all day.
|7:12||[Comment From Sonny ]|
Is it just me or should having an unknown guy come out of nowhere to be the first guy to outplay tiger in a final pairing of a major be the opposite of disappointing? What happened to rooting for the underdog?
|7:14||[Comment From Daniel ]|
Hey Jason, do you think Yang will win Player of the Year?
|7:16||[Comment From Will ]|
A travesty for golf. Tiger played incredibly poorly by his standards and Yang played underwhelmingly adequately, and still only won on the 18th. Depressing how limited this generation of golf is if you exclude Tiger, who is under ridiculous pressure every time out as he nears the record...
|7:18||[Comment From Chad ]|
Tiger choked and I hope it makes him focus a little more next time. Since he never chokes...
|7:21||[Comment From Dino ]|
Since no one else wants to say it, I will. Yang won that major. Tiger did not make any major mistakes. Yang outplayed him and putted better. That simple.
|7:24||[Comment From S.H. Cho ]|
This is a terrific day for Koreans. Yesterday was our independence day and what a way to celebrate!
|7:39||[Comment From DavidM ]|
Remember that Jack Nicklaus had, I believe, 16 second-place finishes at majors to go along with his 18 wins. Jack didn't win all the time either, and he probably had a major or two in the bag and finished second. Today proves that Tiger is human, after all, just like Jack.
91st PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
The drama was gripping. The battle between Y.E. Yang and Tiger Woods compelling. So did Yang win the 91st PGA or did Tiger lose it? The truth lies somewhere in between. Gene WojciechowskiCourse: Hazeltine National Golf Club
