I feel compelled to send my kudos to TNT for their great PGA Championship coverage.
I sense an Emmy award coming soon for their detailed, innovative and in depth coverage of Tiger Woods’ empty parking spot.
Well done. Bravo. Bravo.
I had a pal come over yesterday to watch the end of the third round. After that we went out and hit a gigantic bucket of balls and then I was off for a leisurely Saturday evening. So I didn’t get the chance to chime in on the 3rd round of the PGA Championship.
Padraig Harrington is about the only player I give a chance to beating Tiger. The more I watch him the more I like him. I don’t think there’s a better player on this planet at hitting fairway woods. Unfortunately he didn’t post his score of -6 first, so YE Yang (also at -6) will be playing in the final group with Tiger.
YE Yang in the final group, last day of a major with Tiger Woods? Can you say nuclear meltdown? I don’t think he’ll be a factor.
Tiger Woods didn’t play all that well in the 3rd round. He certainly wasn’t firing on all cylinders and he wasn’t making a ton of putts. That being said, he somehow held the lead. And for the billionth time mentioned, Tiger doesn’t lose leads when he takes them into the final round of majors.
Will Padraig, Yang or someone else finally crack through and beat Tiger? The odds don’t say so, but they still have to play the game.
Don’t bother me. Round three of the PGA Championship is fully underway. I’ve been watching for 4.5 hours already, but Tiger just finished the 3rd hole. Tiger is paired with Vijay Singh today.
Tiger now is at -8 with a four shot lead, 5th tee.
Lee Westwood’s swing is a carbon copy of Natalie Gulbis’ swing. He has that same strange dip just after impact. It is sort of hard to watch.
In case you didn’t know it, you can catch a ton of extra live coverage of the PGA Championship at PGA.com. I’m watching Anthony Kim and Adam Scott right now.
It isn’t pretty for Adam Scott. He’s at +12.
Speaking of pretty (or not), I just saw my good friend John Kim (not related to Anthony, but he wishes) on PGA.com’s live coverage! I know a famous guy! John is in the middle of the image below.
Tiger Woods doesn’t typically start out fast in majors. Today he did with a 67, which leads by one over Padraig Harrington. Tiger and Padraig started out where they left off last week I suppose.
Tiger is about as good of a front runner as there’s ever been so it will be interesting to see if he holds the lead. He hasn’t had any wild swings like I saw at the British.
Despite being the longest major championship in history, they’re posting tons of red numbers right now at Hazeltine.
I’ll be watching all day tomorrow. Will Tiger hold on for his third win in a row?
