"I have no confidence. Now ask me that same question 10 more times please."
The brainiacs in the golf media are at it again, asking dumb questions to Tiger Woods. There’s a lot of talk about Tiger intimidating players on the course, but are the media so intimidated that they can’t think of good questions? Time for the 2011 Masters Friday edition of Stupid Press Questions.
Scribe: “Tiger when you play as well as that, do you feel that there’s enough in the tank to do it again over the next 36 holes?”
Tiger answered nicely, but it is a dumb question.
My answer: “No. I don’t feel like I have enough in the tank to play well the rest of the week. I’m out of shape. I haven’t prepared well enough. My mind is wandering because you know, it is a major and I’m just plain thinking about other things, like painting the garage. I really don’t see myself playing well over the weekend in the Masters. I’m going to just try to keep it under 90 the next two days.”
Friday’s Masters rounds are all complete now.
1st round leader Rory McIlroy held on to his lead, which is still two shots. McIlroy’s 69 featured a solid front nine and some sketchy putting on the back. I’m really liking Rory’s composure, and his balance in his swing is perfect. Love watching this player.

The leaderboard is shaping up, the last few groups are winding down the back nine.
Rory McIlroy (-10) followed up yesterday’s 65 with a very solid 69, keeping his two shot lead.
Rory McIlroy continues the great play. Rory birdied #2, #5 and #9 and is currently three shots ahead of the nearest competitor (K.J. Choi) at -10.
Speaking of K.J. Choi, he finished the day shooting 70 for a total score of 07. He had it at -8 a couple of times, but a 3-putt on 18 from birdie range hurt.
