    Going to be very interested in how Tiger plays. Obviously he is never going to get back to old Tiger but it sucks to see him look as bad as he has for the most part the last few years.

    Spieth already at -4 through 6. Guys are going pretty low right now and that's probably required because it looks like the weather is going to be awful tomorrow and Saturday.

    The worst thing Tiger ever did, besides wrecking strippers and such (which is debatable) was leave Butch Harmon.

    Looks like the rain will be mostly done by noon local time, but the wind should stick around so should be a fun day. Planning on waking up early to catch a few hours before work.

    An amateur is currently leading. It would be great to see him win it.

    Course is getting abused without the wind blowing today. Setting up to be a stellar final round.

    This is how majors should be - a pile of talent all within 1-2 shots of the lead. Makes the sprint in the final round much more fun to watch. Per usual, someone 4-5 back will make a run to make things interesting.

    Also, Azingers commentary is stellar. CBS needs to get him on board with Jim Nantz and co.

    Spieth only one shot back. Hopefully he can win it and set up the possible slam. Hype would be insane going into the PGA.

    Watching Dustin Johnson choke while everyone flew past him yesterday was fantastic.

    Everyone who went off early was tearing the course up again this morning, DJ birdies #1, then proceeds to hit an unplayable drive on 2 (which has a 100 yard wide fairway), bogeys the next 3 :bchuckle:

    Ben was +6 in his last 6 holes after I mentioned his score. Whoops.

    Can't hate on Zach Johnson but if Adam Scott blocks Spieth from winning this thing with his faggot putter I'm gonna be so pissed.

    I can't really root against him after the story about his sick wife, but dammit Leishman, know your place.

    What was wrong with her? Someone came in my office when they were talking about it but I heard him say "I thought my 1 and 3 year olds were going to have to grow up without their mother".

    I used to dislike Zach Johnson, but the way he handled himself made me turn a complete 180 towards him. On another note, does anyone remember the story about Tiger purposely playing porn the whole time when they roomed together (maybe at the Ryder or President's Cup), knowing he was an extremely devout Christian? Tiger is one weird dude.

    Played out at Cobb's today. Started pouring on 17 with two of us tied and one a stroke back so we had to finish. Reallllly need the Walker to open back up. Courses in the area other than Boscobel are awful although Cobbs is in good shape right now.

    Cobb's has started to look and play better this year. The new bermuda greens seem to be taking well and with how hot this summer has been they are in pretty good shape right now. Course will never be as good as it used to be though. It was made to be played with bent greens.

    Played last Friday and shot 38 on the back...without a single par. Can't decide if that's a good or bad thing.

    Yeah with bent greens it's super tough (I 11 putted #4 once when the pin was placed where you couldn't stop the ball within 15 feet of the cup). It played pretty easy today even though nobody was playing all that well in the group. Lack of sand in the bunkers is the only flaw that stood out. I like how Cobbs sets up on most of the longer holes where if you can work the ball you can reach all the par 5's (we play from the tips). Only hole that got me in trouble was 8. Skied it and didn't make it over the OB.

    My friend played in the Greenville County Amateur at Holly Tree this past weekend. He shot 76-75 (Friday and Saturday) and made the cut. I'm not what he shot on Sunday. We were at a wedding that Saturday night , so he had to be hungover as shit. I tore my MCL 2 months ago and I could barely even watch the British Open because it's so depressing not being able to play.
