    He did a interview after he received the Trophy on NBC. He said his family bought tickes on eBay, and then drove 12 hours straight from North Carolina to watch him play. Don't worry though, Glover said he would pay for their gas expences on the way back.

    Yeah, what a round by Tom Watson! I'd love to see him at least stay in the mix through the rest of the tournament, but we'll see.

    Also, Tiger at +1... not so good.

    Sweet deal that Watson fired a 65.

    Happy that Stricker is right there.

    Jiminez is +3 through 4. Not what you'd call a good start.

    Did Tiger make the cut?

    Can't wait for the article from WoJo saying that even though he didn't make the cut, you shouldn't count Tiger out of this one.

    He did miss it...the Brits must be choked. He's a big, big draw.

    Also, Ben Curtis... went from -5 after day one to missing the cut. Ouch.

    Watson still hanging around :)

    Watson needs to win. I don't want another unknown winner.

    Watson and Nickson dueled in memorable fashion several times decades ago. What a remarkable triumph it would be if Watson manages to outdo Nicklaus's magnificent 1986 Masters victory. Watson is 13 years older than Nicklaus, and a year older than Nicklaus was when he finished sixth at the 1998 Masters.

    Interestingly, both Nicklaus and Watson were five time champions going into each event. Time will tell if Watson joins Nicklaus as a six time winner.

    I meant that Watson is 13 years older than Nicklaus was when the Golden Bear won the Masters for the last time.

    I understand. I just couldn't edit my post, and should have referred directly to it. Was just correcting an error on my part :).
