Tiger needs to run into a birdie. +5 will likely make the weekend but hard to see him not making a bogey the rest of the way. The bogey on 5 is a killer.

Edit: Bogey might be coming right now, bad approach on 12. This is the best he's looked physically but just doesn't have the reps to get sharp.
Tiger simply can’t play every four-to-six weeks - on some of the most difficult courses - and be competitive.

If he wants to be competitive in majors, he’s going to need to play a (slightly) bigger schedule. If he can’t physically do it, then the Tiger we see now is the best he’ll ever be.

Got to go yesterday. Fun day but man it was HOT. There were reported >2000 people had medical (likely heat : dehydration) issues. Luckily they had first aid tents everywhereee. And ems zooming around on carts.
It is incredibly dry and burned out. Dusty as hell.
Those watching on TV, probably saw me. I was 2 feet from the ropes when Tiger put it in the trap on 2. I was the guy in a red sox hat

Probably in the minority but I still can’t root for this jackass.
I suspect you’re still in the majority.

Rory’s putting is coming around. I’m not getting my hopes up due to the built up emotional scarring but I probably will tomorrow despite myself, especially after a few Father’s Day cocktails.

Understanding that I'm a stubborn dinosaur, I will never root for a LIV guy. I disliked most of them before they left, with this guy being right up there with Bubba, Sergio, Casey, Reed, and Hatton
Go Rory!
It’s not really even LIV for me. I just can’t root for this guy based on his Tour assholery. I can’t get past it. And he basically wears a Pirate logo. Fuck him.

Rory all the way.

I guess I am in the minority, I couldn’t stand Bryson for years. Just thought he was an absolute jackass. But the past year watching TikTok golf and seeing him have fun with the barstool guys or foreplay or whoever else, doing the breaking 60 challenge from the red tee’s, or breaking par with a junior set of clubs, the guy has done a remarkable job working on his image and it has converted me. I love to see emotion on the course, I love to see crazy risk/reward shots. I still can’t stand LIV and what it did to the game of golf, but Bryson entertains me and makes golf fun to watch.

(plus I have $100 on him at +2000)

All in on Bryson tomorrow. Fuck the haters. Some of you are just so incredibly boring. Guy is the best thing that has happened to golf in a decade and you're upset because he doesn't say the right things or play the game the right way. Wah wah wah wah. Cry cry cry.

Going to LIV is the same as going to the Yankees. To hell with all of them.
