    It had to happen sometime.

    Motivate him, no doubt.

    Very surprising, but I suppose it did have to happen sometime. Still, +3 today? Ouch.

    I'd love to see Stricker win the Fed Ex Cup. He played clutch golf on 17 and 18 today, and has been solid and consistent all year.

    3 up for the US in the Prez Cup. Tiger with Stricker is one tuff matchup.

    But Tiger doesn't usually do well in team events, if I recall correctly.

    they've been really hard to beat so far, that's why they've been tied up together for a number of years so far.

    The PGA must be hoping Tiger has ye quick divorce.

    Tiger will be back for the Masters, and the PGA rejoices.

    First round of the Masters underway.

    You know, Augusta Nation really annoys me. I wish they wouldn't restrict the amount of coverage available. I want to watch golfers play the Masters, not listen to Scott Van Pelt talk about golfers playing the Masters.

    indeed, very well deserved and definitely well earned.

    the fact that tiger was so bloody off throughout pretty much the entire tourney and still finished tied for fourth does not bode well for anyone else the rest of the way once he shakes the rust off.

    Tiger had 5 bogeys in his final round, and finished 5 strokes back. And one of those bogeys should have been an easy birdie (missed 2 consecutive putts of 3 feet or less... very unusual). What a difference that made!

    Dustin Johnson had a 3 stroke lead going into the final round of the US Open... and two holes later, that's gone after a triple bogey on #2... and now he's in major trouble on #3.

    Ernie Els only one back, and Tiger and Phil within striking distance... and even Davis Love III just eagled to get back to +1 (currently 4 back).

    EDIT: I'm pulling for Dustin Johnson, btw, who is a Columbia native.

    Heh. I was just looking for this thread.


    I'm used to not being able to find my ball when I hit a bad shot off tee. I'm not used to seeing that from the Sunday leader at a major tournament.

    And then he hit the next ball into the sand.

    I am watching this self destruction as well. He needs to just breathe for a few minutes and then continue on.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Rather different levels of skill :p

    EDIT: now they're saying the ball was found, but after the time limit. Still.

    EDIT2: Oh boy, more trouble for Johnson :(

    Boy, Tiger just can't get a good putt to go in today. Kind of reminds me of his head-to-head loss on Sunday at the PGA last year.

    If he was just hitting pars, he'd be right in this thing, with the pack coming back, but he's had a bogey-filled round already.

    edit: Of course, as soon as I post that, he hits a nice birdie putt.

    Well, Graeme McDowell hung on to win. McDowell is the first European to win the US Open in some 40 years, and the first golfer from the UK to win a major since 1999. No one was under par for the tournament, and today sounded like an ugly day of golf all around.

    He's not going to feel well tonight...

    Pretty unusual for an even round to be the winner.
