    Extremely unforgettable. But there's time. Tiger is playing quite well.

    Tiger is toying with the golf course right now. This is epic.

    This brings me back to the early 2000s today. Chills watching this.

    Tiger now 5 under though 6. Rose is back to even on the day after 2 birdies in his last 4 holes. Missed a very good look at eagle on #6.

    Edit: Tiger just hit 3-wood into a bunker on #7, so he is not quite the God he once was.

    He can still get this to the green. Far enough back from the lip to get the shot up in the air.

    In Ryder Cup related info, Phil looks AWFUL. He did finally just put a wedge into about 5 ft, but my goodness, Furyk will have to hide him next week if he doesn't figure something out between tomorrow and Friday.

    Finau looks as steady as he has all season, just rolling along, nothing splashy, just always sort of right there. I like him a lot, and I think you could play him with anyone on the American side.

    DeChambeau finally pulled out of his funk today with a 66, but that did include an improbable hole out from the rough on one hole.

    This is how it used to be week in and week out, when he'd just get on one of these hot streaks and blow by everyone in the field.

    Sure did. To get from where he was last year to now is something that can't be explained.

    I've been listening to a lot of Sirius PGA radio, and the talk is that Phil doesn't give a shit about these playoffs, all he cares about is the Ryder Cup. DLIII said that Phil wants to win at the Ryder Cup more than anyone else he's ever seen. So yes, the fact that he doesn't have a top 10 since May might be reason for concern. But these past few tournaments probably is not.

    Yeah, I read somewhere a similar thing about he and Sergio - it doesn't matter that they both have sort of sucked for the summer. Ryder Cup is different and when you're one of these guys who has been so invested for so long, and who means the world to the team room, you almost can't compare the regular season to the RC week. I hope that's right for Phil, because he doesn't know where the ball is going right now!

    Ian Poulter is in this category too. You just know he'll come out and win 4 points this week. That guy lives for the RC.

    And hit a ridiculous amount of 20 footers to win and halve holes. I hate that guy during RC week.

    Two shot swing is not all four wheels, but it’s not good.

    Tee shot into deep rough; chunked out into deep bowl around the green; too cute with a flop, rolled right back down; great bump and run to 3 feet; putt in for bogey.

    Rory first in the clubhouse at -9. If Rose can’t birdie here, we’ll have the dream final pairing.

    Rory and Tiger in the final pairing. Giddyup!

    How soon until @dcmissle comes in complaining about espn’s breathless coverage of this nonstory when there are 29 other players in this tournament?

    I was just reading a few articles about the FedEx Cup and did not recall that in the first year of the Cup (2007), all of the bonus money was paid into the players’ tax-deferred retirement accounts. So Tiger got $10 million deposited in 2007. After that, they put only 10% in, so only $1 mil went into that account in 2009. That account, with all of his FedEx bonus money, in addition to his other merit-based deposits by the tour should be worth tens of millions ar up to nine figures today, depending on how he invested it (the $10 million from 2007 alone would be worth over $20 million today in a total market index fund, and eg, over $60 million if he put it in Nike stock).

    I've made the decision to tape the golf tomorrow, and watch the Red Zone live and then catch up on the golf split screen during the 4:00 games, while also watching the Red Zone. Just can't not watch football live, but damn, it's going to be hard not checking in for the first two hours or so.

    Are you gambling or watching for fantasy team? This strikes me as being really weird, but Red Zone in general I don’t really get unless for one or both of those avenues. I’m not trying to be a wise ass either, I can watch highlights if I want to see teams I don’t root for scoring.
