    Wonder if this will translate into consistent boos from the crowds.

    I am not about people yelling after shots just to get on TV, but I hope, I really hope, someone gets a good "ALLIGATOR ARMS!" in right after he hits a tee shot and it's on TV

    I don't think it changes his perception in general too much.  I think it will mostly be impacted with younger fans, there are a lot of old cheap country club fans that will still be team sketchers.

    Amen! You know it’s coming. That would be epic.

    I'd like to hear of a group of about 10-15 of the best players chip in about 5K each and pay the guy. Would be a great PR move on their part.

    18 is great. The US am there a couple years ago was incredible. 18 has so much strategy. Right side and those trees are gonna give you problems. Up that hill. Great hole

    We’re not giving kuchar any credit on this right? He made his bed and he’s only saving his ass from the worst of the worst, right?

    Such a stupid comment to say they had an agreement for $3,500 for the week and think that giving a $1,500 bonus for winning it all is sufficient.

    Hope Tiger can keep that fire going in the morning. Sucks they had to stop .If he can play the next 12 holes in -3 or better then look out. Tough to play 30 holes in a day in tournament conditions though. Also, I wish he could get off to starts like this on Thursday and Friday. 
  • Go Tiger!
    Free Boston Lou!!!!

    I have been real skeptical of tiger winning a major, but I think I might be sold after this week. Playing like this on a course he has never played well on. 

    To me, it also looks like his swing is completely in control. just can do whatever he wants and swinging crazy hard. This year the hard swings look a little smoother to me.

    Also, he hooked a chip!

    Agreed on all fronts. If he keeps his driver dialed in, he’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

    Around that tree and almost jarred it. That was an awesome shot.

    Holmes is the fucking worst

    Golden boy went out in 41, then carded a quad. He might stink

    Playing on a simulator today. Looking forward to it

    I think Spieth realized his run of excellent putting wasn’t going to last forever and then noticed all of the more talented players who can hit it a mile and are good from short range too.  Got in his head.

    Yep.  Wears a black glove and is soooooo fucking slow.  Group in front of them was almost 2 holes ahead yesterday...ridiculous.

    Played yesterday and shot 76. So that's 78-76 to start the year. Shot 41 on the front side but then rallied with a 35 on the back side. Best start to a season ever for me. All my hours and hours of practice last year are paying off.
