Mike Weir birdies #6, and he's at -1 with two strokes gained today.
 
John Senden also with a nice recovery. He started even, bogeyed 1 & 4, and has since birdied 5, 7 & 8 to get to -1.

That loud cursing you all heard was from inside the ESPN production truck, where everyone's pissed that Bubba will be off the course by the time they go to air.

Put some cash on Bubba when he was 20-1 and some more when he dropped to 8-1. 
 
Apparently he's only 1-8 in winning tourneys with a 36 hole lead.

He's sort of (by his own admission) a mental nutcase on the course. I've always viewed him as a better chaser than a front runner. When he's chasing someone the task is simply go out and beat them, so it's easier to focus. When he's the leader it's not as easy.

Well, let's see how he handles this 27 shot lead he has.

Bae is having the ultimate roller coaster back nine:
 
Birdie, bogey, bogey, double, bogey, eagle, bogey, birdie as he heads to 18.
 
He's dropped 4 strokes today after starting off even.
 
He finished with bogey to drop to +5. No pars at all on the back nine.

McDowell begins his round with double-bogey to fall to +2.
 
Another bogey at #4 leaves him straddling the cut line as he's +3 through 6.

I think the cut will move to +4 by the end of the day
 
I think you are probably right.  So if he pars 18, we'll probably get to see Sergio's sourpuss expression for two more days.

Great shot by Bubba on #18 from well left of the green, using the slope to settle it back down towards the hole. Makeable putt for par left.
