Round two of the WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral is underway. Hunter Mahan continues to lead with great putting. Mahan is at -10 through 11 holes, three shots ahead of world #1 Martin Kaymer.
The big group of Phil Mickelson, Graeme McDowell and Tiger Woods is on the course playing their 2nd round. They had to finish their first round this morning. Tiger carded a -2 70 in round one while Phil shot a 73 and McDowell a 70.
Tiger Woods started out with a strange sequence of holes for round two, going birdie bogey birdie bogey bogey. As it sits right now through seven holes into round two, Mickelson is at +1, Woods at -1 and McDowell is at -1.
Bad weather at Doral
Wow there’s a big storm hitting Doral right now. Trees are blowing over and it is raining sideways. Even the hospitality tents are close to flying away, as Graeme McDowell put it. Play has been delayed an estimated three hours.
Quote of the day comes from Geoff Ogilvy:
“Here I am, having a wonderful morning, with a one foot putt for double on my first hole, and they blow the siren.”
Kelly Tilghman on the weather:
“Our towers at 8 and 9 have been blown away.”
“There are tv towers in bunkers, the main scoreboard has blown over, the course will take a little while to get ready, hope we get out there.”
Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell have yet to tee off.

Ultimate Flogging Championship – UFC 135 – HANEY VS FOLEY
There’s a new UFC (Ultimate Flogging Championship) coming during Masters week next month. Following the recent spats in the media between Tiger Woods’ current swing coach Sean Foley and Tiger’s former coach Hank Haney, the two have agreed to a five round championship bout in the octagon in UFC 135 – HANEY VS FOLEY.
The Match Up
While one may pick Foley because he is a few years younger, don’t count out Haney’s experience.
Haney’s strengths are ground and pound, Muay Thai and a bit of Brazilian Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Haney will want to get the fight to the ground as soon as possible and take Foley out of his game plan.
Foley will want to keep the match off the ground and play to his strength, boxing in the stand up game. Foley has a strong jab which could do some damage to Haney. The question about Foley is whether he can defend the take downs by Haney well enough.
HOG attempting to get exclusive interviews soon
My management team is in the process of tracking down Foley and Haney in attempt to do some exclusive interviews. Stay tuned.
