Go TIGER. What a round of golf he put together today. Should be a good day to watch golf on sunday.

My observations.

Tiger's knee is hurting big time. As Johnny Miller stated he would drop out if this wasn't a major.

The dude just makes amazing shots. The chip in on 17 was unbelievable. If it don't go in he is looking at a bogey.

I wish Rocco would not have faded. His personality is what we need in golf. Hopefully the birdie on 18 will help for tommorow. I think its good that he won't be paired with Tiger on Sunday.

I think Westwood has the make up to play with Tiger. Very solid over 3 days.

My prediction (don't go to Vegas with this one) Westwood will play solid. Tiger's knee will hurt him on the back nine and Westwood will win by 2 shots.

No matter what it will be entertaining. Tiger in the final group always effects the rest of the field.

Tiger put on one heck of a show on the back nine yesterday. He looked like he wanted to quit after some painful shots and then would be grinning from ear to ear after eagles and chip in birdies.

It's really too bad he had to play that first hole. Starting off with double bogeys 2 different rounds on the first hole hurts. 2 bogeys and he would have gone home today the winner.

Oh well, you have to play them all, it's just that the back nine gets the glory.

Oh yeah, I sure felt for Phil Mickelson carding a 9 on that one hole yesterday. Too bad TV had to keep showing that one.

Rocco may pull this one off today, he is up by 1 with 3 holes left, been watching all day at work and this round has had some very nice shots by both players.

Bummer! I really wanted Rocco to win. He had his chance though. Talk about a fun weekend of golf!

I agree that it was to bad Rocco didn't pull it off. So close and then the lose.

A great match by both guys. They both had chances throughout to seal the deal. I don't know about the rest fo you but I like the 18 hole format for the playoff....

    • Rather than the concepts of teams I think it more appropriate to think in terms of philosophies. Each "team" has a philosophical way of dealing with certain issues: tax codes, immigration, war on drugs etc,  So even though your candidate may be weak you are going to vote, not for them, but for that teams way of dealing with those issues.   A simple example would be tax codes.  The democrats think individual taxes for the top 10%'s should be increased where the republicans believe that reducing taxes on that same 10% will stimulate growth through trickle down economics.   So in essence, you're not voting for a particular candidate, you're voting for the team that will deal with these issues in a way you feel is best. 
    • Like Obabma, he sets up a straw man false premise and then proceeds to attack said straw man.      He is deceived by the fact that the most polarized folks are the ones making the noise, thereby creating a false impression.    You persist in wanting to discuss this article.  Why is that?      
    • So lets recap.   Decriminalization will not reduce prison populations by a noticeable amount.    Will not reduce crime.   Will not reduce monies spent combating drug suppliers and dealers.   Will not lower the consumption rates.    - Will allow regular everyday citizens who use/possess and get caught, not ruin their lives with a crippling criminal record.   May encourage the the habitual users to seek treatment/help.      Which I have no issues with.   My issues are saying with decriminalization it will save tax payers any money.   That's my beef.    
    •   I didn't see the Socialist party listed

    • Nick they are all trash, your party included, until you figure that out you are no better than some blind Trump supporter.
    •   That was a long time ago.   The media has become far more partisan than it was at that time.   

    • You are starting to sound like a helpless snowflake in desperate need of big government to take away the burden of personal responsibility away from you. I try and take a big picture approach and not mico manage our laws based on political views outside of science or common sense.

      No one is advocating for drunk driving or murder to be legal but I guess that doesn't stop you from using wild assumptions without anything to back them up.

      All most of us are asking for is simple freedoms and choices and a government that stays out of the way. Having a bunch of drugs that kill and half of the legal and half of them illegal makes no sense. You either stand for personal freedom and responsibility across the board or you don't, picking and choose this stuff based on political leanings is about as backwards as it gets and you just end up looking like a complete hypocrite. Keeping drugs outlawed because people die is the same kind of reasoning people use to take away guns. All the while you are more likely to die from eating too much McDonalds, you simply can't outlaw stupid people or the things they do and expect that to work. We as a people need to stop trying to control things are completely out of our control, all it does is waste tons of money and time and it does a wonderful job of ruining people's lives.
    • I really don't like a president calling out news media outlets by name and whining about the media. Obama did it with FOX and talk radio and now Trump is doing it with CNN and the NYT's. It's one thing for each men's supporters to do it. But I don't recall GWB or Reagan or Carter calling out the media by name in public.   I don't buy the claim from some(nobody here) that doing such is a sign of a dictator(the same, btw, who cheered BHO doing it). It just makes a president look weak and whiny and looking for other's to blame for their own failures. Not that I'm a fan of the NYT's, but I do believe in freedom of the press even the press I personally don't care much for.   If you're an elected official, the press is supposed to be a thorn in your side
    •   This is what Del was probably talking about and yes he is right, we do have to pick a side or at least a candidate when we go to the polling booth but there is no need to defend every single move the candidate makes and vilify every single move the opposition makes.      I'm not sure what makes us think and behave the way we do, I didn't take enough psychology or anthropology courses in college to answer that question but I do know that to me it is even more repulsive than the small minded thinking that goes in to hating one sports team although they are basically the same as your chosen sports team. I can see liking and rooting for one sports team or political faction over another but the pure hatred for the opposite team is mind boggling to me.     These are the fine points of this article as I see it. Now would anyone like to have a discussion on these points?
    •   This paragraph is important because I believe that most people now when faced with a political discussion do indeed "turn off their intellect". It's the only way to get through the hypocrisy that arises when one chooses a side so completely.
